If the basis of accrual of interest or fees expressed in this Agreement with respect to an Agreed Foreign Currency of any country that becomes a Participating Member State after the date on which such currency becomes an Agreed Foreign Currency shall be inconsistent with any convention or practice in the interbank market for the basis of accrual of interest or fees in respect of the Euro, such convention or practice shall replace such expressed basis effective as of and from the date on which such state becomes a Participating Member State; provided that, with respect to any Borrowing denominated in such currency that is outstanding immediately prior to such date, such replacement shall take effect at the end of the Interest Period therefor.
Without prejudice to the respective liabilities of the Borrower to the Lenders and the Lenders to the Borrower under or pursuant to this Agreement, each provision of this Agreement shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time, in consultation with the Borrower, reasonably specify to be necessary or appropriate to reflect the introduction or changeover to the Euro in any country that becomes a Participating Member State after the Original Effective Date; provided that the Administrative Agent shall provide the Borrower and the Lenders with prior notice of the proposed change with an explanation of such change in sufficient time to permit the Borrower and the Lenders an opportunity to respond to such proposed change.

To request a Borrowing, the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such request by delivery of a signed Borrowing Request or by telephone or e-mail (in each case, followed promptly by delivery (including by e-mail) of a signed Borrowing Request) (i) in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three (3) Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing or (ii) in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in an Agreed Foreign Currency (other than AUD or NZD), not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three (3) Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing, (iii) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, one (1) Business Day before the date of the proposed Borrowing; provided that, in the event that the amount of any such ABR Borrowing does not exceed the Same Day Cap, the Borrower may request such ABR Borrowing not later than 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Business Day of the proposed Borrowing or (iv) in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in AUD or NZD, not later than 11:00 a.m., London time, four (4) Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing. Each such request for a Borrowing shall be irrevocable. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, in the case of any Borrowing denominated in Dollars, the Borrower may request that such Borrowing be split into a Dollar Loan in an aggregate principal amount equal to the Pro-Rata Dollar Portion and a Multicurrency Loan in an aggregate amount equal to the Pro-Rata Multicurrency Portion (any such Borrowing, a “Pro-Rata Borrowing”). Except as set forth in this Agreement, a Pro-Rata Borrowing shall be treated as being comprised of two separate Borrowings, a Dollar Borrowing under the Dollar Commitments and a Multicurrency Borrowing under the Multicurrency Commitments.
(b)    Content of Borrowing Requests. Each request for a Borrowing (whether a written Borrowing Request, a telephonic request or an e-mail request) shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)    whether such Borrowing is to be made under the Dollar Commitments, the Multicurrency Commitments or is a Pro-Rata Borrowing;
(ii)    if such Borrowing is a Pro-Rata Borrowing, the Pro-Rata Dollar Portion and the Pro-Rata Multicurrency Portion;

41
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(iii)    the aggregate amount and Currency of the requested Borrowing;
(iv)    the date of such Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;
(v)    in the case of a Borrowing denominated in Dollars, whether such Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing;
(vi)    in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the Interest Period therefor, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period” and permitted under Section 2.02(d); and
(vii)    the location and number of the Borrower’s account to which funds are to be disbursed, which shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.04.
(c)    Notice by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each applicable Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.
(d)    Failure to Elect. If no election as to the Class of a Borrowing is specified in a Borrowing Request, then the requested Borrowing shall be denominated in Dollars and shall be a Pro-Rata Borrowing, unless the Currency of such Borrowing is specified in an Agreed Foreign Currency. If no election as to the Currency of a Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be denominated in Dollars. If no election as to the Type of a Borrowing is specified in a Borrowing Request, then the requested Borrowing shall be a Eurocurrency Borrowing having an Interest Period of one (1) month and, if an Agreed Foreign Currency has been specified, the requested Borrowing shall be a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in such Agreed Foreign Currency and having an Interest Period of one (1) month. If a Eurocurrency Borrowing is requested but no Interest Period is specified, (i) if the Currency specified for such Borrowing is Dollars (or if no Currency has been so specified), the requested Borrowing shall be a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars having an Interest Period of one (1) month, and (ii) if the Currency specified for such Borrowing is an Agreed Foreign Currency, the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one (1) month.
SECTION 2.04.    Funding of Borrowings.
(a)    Funding by Lenders. Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by 1:00 p.m., Local Time, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of the Borrower designated by the Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request.
(b)    Presumption by the Administrative Agent. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date

42
25629977.9.BUSINESS



in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section and, in reliance upon such assumption, the Administrative Agent may (in its sole discretion and without any obligation to do so) make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in the corresponding Currency with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (ii) in the case of the Borrower, the interest rate applicable at the time to the Loans comprising such Borrowing. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Nothing in this paragraph shall relieve any Lender of its obligation to fulfill its commitments hereunder, and shall be without prejudice to any claim the Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.
SECTION 2.05.    Interest Elections.
(a)    Elections by the Borrower for Borrowings. Subject to Section 2.03(d), the Loans constituting each Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, shall have the Interest Period specified in such Borrowing Request. Thereafter, subject to Section 2.05(e), the Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a Borrowing of a different Type or to continue such Borrowing as a Borrowing of the same Type and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, may elect the Interest Period therefor, all as provided in this Section; provided, however, that (i) a Borrowing of a Class may only be continued or converted into a Borrowing of the same Class, (ii) a Borrowing denominated in one Currency may not be continued as, or converted to, a Borrowing in a different Currency, (iii) no Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency may be continued if, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposures would exceed the aggregate Multicurrency Commitments and such Borrowing shall be prepaid pursuant to any of the first three sentences of Section 2.08(c) (and, for the avoidance of doubt, subject to Section 2.05(e), such Borrowing shall, for purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, be deemed to be a Eurocurrency Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month until such prepayment has been made (together with interest thereon as specified in Section 2.10(c)), and (iv) a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency may not be converted into a Borrowing of a different Type. The Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders of the respective Class holding the Loans constituting such Borrowing (except as provided under Section 2.11(b)), and the Loans constituting each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.
(b)    Notice of Elections. To make an election pursuant to this Section, the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such election by delivery of a signed Interest Election Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent or by telephone (followed promptly, but no later than the close of business on the date of such request, by a signed Interest Election Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent) by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if the Borrower were requesting a Borrowing of the

43
25629977.9.BUSINESS



Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election. Each such telephonic and written notice of election shall be irrevocable.
(c)    Content of Interest Election Requests. Each Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)    the Borrowing (including the Class) to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) of this paragraph shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
(ii)    the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)    whether, in the case of a Borrowing denominated in Dollars, the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing; and
(iv)    if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the Interest Period therefor after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period” and permitted under Section 2.02(d); provided that there shall be no more than ten (10) separate Eurocurrency Borrowings outstanding at any one time.
(d)    Notice by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders. Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each applicable Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
(e)    Failure to Elect; Events of Default. If the Borrower fails to deliver a timely and complete Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurocurrency Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period therefor, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, (i) if such Borrowing is denominated in Dollars, at the end of such Interest Period such Borrowing shall be converted to a Eurocurrency Borrowing of the same Class having an Interest Period of one (1) month and (ii) if such Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency, the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one (1) month. Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the Borrower, (i) any Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars shall, at the end of the applicable Interest Period for such Eurocurrency Borrowing, be automatically converted to an ABR Borrowing, (ii) the Borrower shall not be entitled to elect to convert or continue any Borrowing into or as a Eurocurrency Borrowing and (iii) any Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency shall not have an Interest Period of more than one (1) month’s duration.
SECTION 2.06.    Termination, Reduction or Increase of the Commitments.
(a)    Scheduled Termination. Unless previously terminated in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, on the Revolver Termination Date the Commitments of each Class

44
25629977.9.BUSINESS



shall automatically be reduced to an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the Loans of all Lenders of such Class outstanding on the Revolver Termination Date and thereafter to an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the Loans outstanding after giving effect to each payment of principal hereunder; provided that, for clarity, no Lender shall have any obligation to make new Loans on or after the Revolver Termination Date, and any outstanding amounts shall be due and payable on the Maturity Date in accordance with Section 2.07.
(b)    Voluntary Termination or Reduction. The Borrower may at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Commitments ratably among each Class; provided that (i) each reduction of the Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.06(b) shall be in an amount that is $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof (or an amount less than $5,000,000 if the Commitments of any Class are being reduced to zero) and (ii) the Borrower shall not terminate or reduce the Commitments if, after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of the Loans of any Class in accordance with Section 2.08, the total Revolving Credit Exposures of such Class would exceed the total Commitments of such Class.
(c)    Notice of Voluntary Termination or Reduction. The Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments under paragraph (b) of this Section at least three (3) Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the applicable Lenders of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Borrower pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of the Commitments of a Class delivered by the Borrower may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.
(d)    Effect of Termination or Reduction. Any termination or reduction of the Commitments of a Class shall be permanent. Each reduction of the Commitments of a Class shall be made ratably among the Lenders of such Class in accordance with their respective Commitments.
(e)    Increase of the Commitments.
(i)    Requests for Increase by Borrower. The Borrower may, at any time prior to the Revolver Termination Date, and subject to the conditions set forth below in this clause (i), propose that the Commitments hereunder of a Class be increased (each such proposed increase being a “Commitment Increase”) by notice to the Administrative Agent specifying each existing Lender (each an “Increasing Lender”) and/or each additional lender (each an “Assuming Lender”) that shall have agreed to an additional Commitment and the date on which such increase is to be effective (the “Commitment Increase Date”), which date shall be a Business Day at least three (3) Business Days (or such lesser period as the Administrative Agent may reasonably agree) after delivery of such notice and at least thirty (30) days prior to the Revolver Termination Date; provided that each Lender may determine in its sole discretion whether or not it chooses to participate in a Commitment Increase; provided further that, subject to the foregoing, each Commitment Increase shall become effective only upon satisfaction of each of the following conditions:

45
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(A)    the minimum amount of the Commitment of any Assuming Lender, and the minimum amount of the increase of the Commitment of any Increasing Lender, as part of such Commitment Increase shall be $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof (or, in each case, in such other amounts as agreed to by the Administrative Agent);
(B)    immediately after giving effect to such Commitment Increase, the total Commitments of all of the Lenders hereunder shall not exceed the lesser of (x) $300,000,000 and (y) 100% of the Obligors’ Net Worth at such time;
(C)    each Assuming Lender and the Commitment Increase shall be consented to by the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed);
(D)    no Default shall have occurred and be continuing on such Commitment Increase Date or shall result from the proposed Commitment Increase; and
(E)    the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct in all material respects (other than any representation or warranty already qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect, which shall be true and correct in all respects) on and as of the Commitment Increase Date as if made on and as of such date (or, if any such representation or warranty is expressly stated to have been made as of a specific date, as of such specific date).
For the avoidance of doubt, no Lender shall be obligated to agree to an additional Commitment requested by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.06(e).
(ii)    Effectiveness of Commitment Increase by Borrower. On the Commitment Increase Date for any Commitment Increase, each Assuming Lender part of such Commitment Increase, if any, shall become a Lender hereunder as of such Commitment Increase Date with a Commitment in the amount set forth in the agreement referred to in Section 2.06(e)(ii)(y) and the Commitment of the respective Class of any Increasing Lender part of such Commitment Increase shall be increased as of such Commitment Increase Date to the amount set forth in the agreement referred to in Section 2.06(e)(ii)(y); provided that:
(x)    the Administrative Agent shall have received on or prior to 12:00 p.m., New York City time, on such Commitment Increase Date (or on or prior to a time on an earlier date specified by the Administrative Agent) a certificate of a duly authorized officer of the Borrower stating that each of the applicable conditions to such Commitment Increase set forth in the foregoing paragraph (i) has been satisfied; and
(y)    each Assuming Lender or Increasing Lender shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent, on or prior to 12:00 p.m., New York City time, on such Commitment Increase Date (or on or prior to a time on an earlier date specified by

46
25629977.9.BUSINESS



the Administrative Agent), an agreement, in form and substance satisfactory to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, pursuant to which such Lender shall, effective as of such Commitment Increase Date, undertake a Commitment or an increase of Commitment in each case of the respective Class, as applicable, duly executed by such Assuming Lender or Increasing Lender, as applicable, and the Borrower and acknowledged by the Administrative Agent.
Promptly following satisfaction of such conditions, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders (including any Assuming Lenders) thereof and of the occurrence of the Commitment Increase Date by facsimile transmission or electronic messaging system.
(iii)    Recordation into Register. Upon its receipt of an agreement referred to in clause (ii)(y) above executed by each Assuming Lender and each Increasing Lender part of such Commitment Increase, as applicable, together with the certificate referred to in clause (ii)(x) above, the Administrative Agent shall, if such agreement referred to in clause(ii)(y) has been completed, (x) accept such agreement, (y) record the information contained therein in the Register and (z) give prompt notice thereof to the Borrower.
(iv)    Adjustments of Borrowings upon Effectiveness of Increase. On each Commitment Increase Date, the Borrower shall (A) prepay the outstanding Loans (if any) of such Class in full, (B) simultaneously borrow new Loans of such Class hereunder in an amount equal to such prepayment; provided that with respect to subclauses (A) and (B), (x) the prepayment to, and Borrowing from, any existing Lender shall be effected by book entry to the extent that any portion of the amount prepaid to such Lender will be subsequently borrowed from such Lender and (y) the existing Lenders, the Increasing Lenders and the Assuming Lenders shall make and receive payments among themselves, in a manner acceptable to the Administrative Agent, so that, after giving effect thereto, the Loans of such Class are held ratably by the Lenders of such Class in accordance with the respective Commitments of such Lenders of such Class (after giving effect to such Commitment Increase) and (C) pay to the Lenders of such Class the amounts, if any, payable under Section 2.13 as a result of any such prepayment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless otherwise consented to in writing by the Borrower, no Commitment Increase Date shall occur on any day other than the last day of an Interest Period. The Administrative Agent shall amend Schedule 1.01(b) to reflect the aggregate amount of each Lender’s Commitments (including Increasing Lenders and Assuming Lenders). Each reference to Schedule 1.01(b) in this Agreement shall be to Schedule 1.01(b) as amended pursuant to this Section.
(v)    Terms of Loans issued on the Commitment Increase Date. For the avoidance of doubt, the terms and provisions of any new Loans issued by any Assuming Lender or Increasing Lender, and the Commitment Increase of any Assuming Lender or Increasing Lender, shall be identical to the terms and provisions of Loans of the applicable Class issued by, and the Commitments of the applicable Class of, the Lenders immediately prior to the applicable Commitment Increase Date.

47
25629977.9.BUSINESS



SECTION 2.07.    Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.
(a)    Repayment. Subject to, and in accordance with, the terms of this Agreement, the Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders of each Class the outstanding principal amount of the Loans of such Class and all other amounts due and owing hereunder and under the other Loan Documents on the Maturity Date.
(b)    Manner of Payment. Prior to any repayment or prepayment of any Borrowings hereunder, the Borrower shall, subject to the requirements of Section 2.08, select the Borrowing or Borrowings to be paid and shall notify the Administrative Agent by telephone (confirmed by telecopy or e-mail) of such selection not later than the time set forth in Section 2.08(f) prior to the scheduled date of such repayment. If the repayment or prepayment is denominated in Dollars and the Class to be repaid or prepaid is specified (or if no Class is specified and there is only one Class of Loans with Borrowings in Dollars outstanding), the Borrower shall repay or prepay any outstanding ABR Borrowings of such Class pro rata and thereafter repay or prepay the remaining Borrowings within such Class in the order of the remaining duration of their respective Interest Periods (the Borrowing with the shortest remaining Interest Period to be repaid or prepaid first). If the repayment or prepayment is denominated in Dollars and the Class to be repaid or prepaid is not specified (or the Pro-Rata Borrowings are specified), the Borrower shall repay or prepay ABR Borrowings that are Pro-Rata Borrowings, pro rata between any outstanding ABR Borrowings of the Dollar Lenders and the Multicurrency Lenders and thereafter repay or prepay the remaining Pro-Rata Borrowings in the order of the remaining duration of their respective Interest Periods (the Borrowings with the shortest remaining Interest Period to be repaid first). If the repayment or prepayment is denominated in a particular Agreed Foreign Currency, the Borrower shall repay or prepay any remaining Borrowings in such Agreed Foreign Currency in the order of the remaining duration of their respective Interest Periods (the Borrowing with the shortest remaining Interest Period to be repaid first). Each payment of a Pro-Rata Borrowing shall be applied ratably between the Dollar Loans and Multicurrency Loans included in such Pro-Rata Borrowing. Each payment of a Borrowing of a Class shall be applied ratably to the Loans of such Class included in such Borrowing (except as otherwise provided in Section 2.11(b)).
(c)    Maintenance of Records by Lenders. Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice records evidencing the Indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan made by such Lender, including the amounts and Currency of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder.
(d)    Maintenance of Records by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall maintain records in which it shall record (i) the amount and Currency of each Loan made hereunder, the Class and Type thereof and each Interest Period therefor, (ii) the amount and Currency of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender of such Class hereunder and (iii) the amount and Currency of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof.
(e)    Effect of Entries. The entries made in the records maintained pursuant to paragraph (c) or (d) of this Section shall be prima facie evidence, absent manifest error, of the

48
25629977.9.BUSINESS



existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such records or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay the Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.
(f)    Promissory Notes. Any Lender may request that Loans made by it be evidenced by a promissory note. In such event, the Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to such Lender (or, if requested by such Lender, to such Lender and its permitted registered assigns) and in a form attached hereto as Exhibit C. Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 9.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the payee named therein (or, if such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its permitted registered assigns).
SECTION 2.08.    Prepayment of Loans.
(a)    Optional Prepayments. The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time (but subject to Section 2.08(e) and (f)) to prepay any Borrowing in whole or in part, without premium or fee (but subject to Section 2.13), subject to the requirements of this Section. Each prepayment in part under this Section 2.08(a) shall be in a minimum amount of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof (or such lesser amount as is then outstanding).
(b)    Mandatory Prepayments Due to Changes in Exchange Rates.
(i)    Determination of Amount Outstanding. On each Quarterly Date and, in addition, promptly upon the receipt by the Administrative Agent of a Currency Valuation Notice (as defined below), the Administrative Agent shall determine the aggregate Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposure. For the purpose of this determination, the outstanding principal amount of any Loan that is denominated in any Foreign Currency shall be deemed to be the Dollar Equivalent of the amount in the Foreign Currency of such Loan, determined as of such Quarterly Date or, in the case of a Currency Valuation Notice received by the Administrative Agent prior to 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on a Business Day, on such Business Day or, in the case of a Currency Valuation Notice otherwise received, on the first Business Day after such Currency Valuation Notice is received. Upon making such determination, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Multicurrency Lenders and the Borrower thereof.
(ii)    Prepayment. If on the date of such determination the aggregate Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposure exceeds 105% of the aggregate amount of the Multicurrency Commitments as then in effect, the Borrower shall prepay the Multicurrency Loans within 15 Business Days of such date of determination in such amounts as shall be necessary so that after giving effect thereto the aggregate Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposure does not exceed the Multicurrency Commitments.

49
25629977.9.BUSINESS



For purposes hereof, “Currency Valuation Notice” means a notice given by the Required Multicurrency Lenders to the Administrative Agent stating that such notice is a “Currency Valuation Notice” and requesting that the Administrative Agent determine the aggregate Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposure. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to make more than one valuation determination pursuant to Currency Valuation Notices within any rolling three-month period.
(c)    Mandatory Prepayments due to Excess Revolving Credit Exposure and Borrowing Base Deficiency. In the event that the amount of total Revolving Credit Exposure exceeds the total Commitments, the Borrower shall prepay (but subject to Sections 2.08(e) and (f)) Loans. In the event that the amount of total Revolving Dollar Credit Exposure exceeds the total Dollar Commitments, the Borrower shall prepay (but subject to Sections 2.08(e) and (f)) Loans in such amounts as shall be necessary so that the amount of total Revolving Dollar Credit Exposure does not exceed the total Dollar Commitments. In the event that the amount of total Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposure exceeds the total Multicurrency Commitments (other than as a result of a change in exchange rates pursuant to Section 2.08(b)), the Borrower shall prepay (but subject to Sections 2.08(e) and (f)) Loans in such amounts as shall be necessary so that the amount of total Revolving Multicurrency Credit Exposure does not exceed the total Multicurrency Commitments. In the event that at any time any Borrowing Base Deficiency shall exist, promptly (but in no event later than five (5) Business Days), the Borrower shall prepay (subject to Sections 2.08(e) and (f)) the Loans so that the Borrowing Base Deficiency is promptly cured; provided that if within such five (5) Business Day period, the Borrower shall present to the Administrative Agent a reasonably feasible plan, which plan is reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, that will enable any such Borrowing Base Deficiency to be cured within 30 Business Days of the occurrence of such Borrowing Base Deficiency (which 30-Business Day period shall include the five (5) Business Days permitted for delivery of such plan), then such prepayment or reduction shall be effected in accordance with such plan (subject, for the avoidance of doubt, to the limitations as to the allocation of such prepayments set forth above in this Section 2.08(c)). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall pay interest in accordance with Section 2.10(c) for so long as the Covered Debt Amount exceeds the Borrowing Base during such 30-Business Day period. For clarity, in the event that the Borrowing Base Deficiency is not cured prior to the end of such five (5)-Business Day period (or, if applicable, such 30-Business Day period), it shall constitute an Event of Default under Section 7.01(a).
(d)    Mandatory Prepayments due to Certain Events Following Availability Period. Subject to the last paragraph of this Section 2.08(d) and Sections 2.08(e) and (f):
(i)    Asset Sales. In the event that any Obligor shall receive any Net Asset Sale Proceeds at any time after the Availability Period, the Borrower shall, no later than the third (3rd) Business Day following the receipt of such Net Asset Sale Proceeds, prepay the Loans in an amount equal to such Net Asset Sale Proceeds (and the Commitments shall be permanently reduced by such amount); provided that with respect to Asset Sales of assets that are not Portfolio Investments, the Borrower shall not be required to prepay the Loans unless and until (and to the extent that) the aggregate Net Asset Sale Proceeds relating to all such Asset Sales are greater than $2,000,000.

50
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(ii)    Extraordinary Receipts. In the event (but only to the extent) that the aggregate Extraordinary Receipts received by the Obligors at any time after the Availability Period exceed $2,000,000, the Borrower shall, no later than the third (3rd) Business Day following the receipt of such excess Extraordinary Receipts, prepay the Loans in an amount equal to such excess Extraordinary Receipts (and the Commitments shall be permanently reduced by such amount).
(iii)    Returns of Capital. In the event that any Obligor shall receive any Return of Capital at any time after the Availability Period, the Borrower shall, no later than the fifth (5th) Business Day following the receipt of such Return of Capital, prepay the Loans in an amount equal to 100% of such Return of Capital (and the Commitments shall be permanently reduced by such amount).
(iv)    Equity Issuances. In the event that the Borrower shall receive any Cash proceeds from the issuance of Equity Interests of the Borrower or from any capital contribution at any time after the Availability Period, the Borrower shall, no later than the third (3rd) Business Day following the receipt of such Cash proceeds, prepay the Loans in an amount equal to 100% of such Cash proceeds, net of underwriting discounts and commissions or other similar payments and other reasonable costs, fees, premiums and expenses directly associated therewith, including reasonable legal fees and expenses (and the Commitments shall be permanently reduced by such amount).
(v)    Indebtedness. In the event that any Obligor shall receive any Cash proceeds from the issuance of Indebtedness at any time after the Availability Period, such Obligor shall, no later than the third (3rd) Business Day following the receipt of such Cash proceeds, prepay the Loans in an amount equal to 100% of such Cash proceeds, net of underwriting discounts and commissions or other similar payments and other reasonable costs, fees, commissions, premiums and expenses directly associated therewith, including reasonable legal fees and expenses (and the Commitments shall be permanently reduced by such amount).
(vi)    Mandatory Prepayment of Eurocurrency Loans. If the Loans to be prepaid pursuant to Sections 2.08(d)(ii) and (iii) are Eurocurrency Loans, the Borrower may defer such prepayment (and permanent Commitment reduction) until the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loans, so long as the Borrower deposits an amount equal to an amount required to be prepaid, no later than the third (3rd) Business Day following the receipt of such amount, into a segregated collateral account in the name and under the dominion and control (within the meaning of Section 9-104 of the Uniform Commercial Code) of the Administrative Agent pending application of such amount to the prepayment of the Loans (and permanent reduction of the Commitments) on the last day of such Interest Period.
(e)    Payments following the Revolver Termination Date or During an Event of Default. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in Section 2.07 or this Section 2.08 (but subject to Section 2.08(f)(ii)), following the Revolver Termination Date or if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing:

51
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(i)    Subject to the second sentence of subclause (iii) of this Section 2.08(e), no optional prepayment of the Loans of any Class shall be permitted unless at such time, the Borrower also prepays the Loans of the other Class, if applicable, which prepayment shall be made on a pro-rata basis (based on the outstanding principal amounts of such Indebtedness) between each outstanding Class of Revolving Credit Exposure.
(ii)    Subject to the second sentence of subclause (iii) of this Section 2.08(e), any prepayment of Loans required to be made pursuant to clause (c) above shall be applied to prepay Loans on a pro-rata basis between each outstanding Class of Revolving Credit Exposure.
(iii)    Any prepayment of Loans in Dollars required to be made in connection with any of the events specified in Section 2.08(d) shall be applied ratably (based on the outstanding principal amounts of such indebtedness) between the Dollar Lenders and the Multicurrency Lenders based on the then outstanding Loans denominated in Dollars. So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, each prepayment in an Agreed Foreign Currency (including as a result of the Borrower’s receipt of proceeds from a prepayment event in such Agreed Foreign Currency) shall be applied ratably among just the Multicurrency Lenders and, if after such payment, the balance of the Loans denominated in such currency is zero, then if there are any remaining proceeds, the Borrower shall prepay the Loans on a pro-rata basis between each outstanding Class of Revolving Credit Exposure; provided that, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, then each prepayment in an Agreed Foreign Currency shall be made ratably (based on the aggregate Dollar Equivalents of the outstanding principal amounts of such indebtedness) between Dollar Loans and Multicurrency Loans.
(iv)    Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary in this Agreement, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, then any payment or repayment of the Loans shall be made and applied ratably (based on the aggregate Dollar Equivalents of the outstanding principal amounts of such Loans) between Dollar Loans and Multicurrency Loans.
(f)    Notices, Etc.
(i)    The Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent in writing or by telephone (followed promptly by written confirmation) of any repayment or prepayment hereunder (A) in the case of repayment or prepayment of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars under Section 2.08(a), not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three (3) Business Days before the date of repayment or prepayment, (B) in the case of a repayment or prepayment of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Foreign Currency under Section 2.08(a), not later than 11:00 a.m., London time, three (3) Business Days before the date of repayment or prepayment, or (C) in the case of repayment or prepayment of an ABR Borrowing under Section 2.08(a), or any prepayment under Section 2.08(b), (c) or (d), not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, one (1) Business Day before the date of repayment or prepayment. Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the repayment or prepayment date, the principal amount of each Borrowing

52
25629977.9.BUSINESS



or portion thereof to be repaid or prepaid and, in the case of a mandatory prepayment, a reasonably detailed calculation of the amount of such prepayment; provided that, (1) if a notice of prepayment is given in connection with a conditional notice of termination of the Commitments as contemplated by Section 2.06(c), then such notice of prepayment may be revoked if such notice of termination is revoked in accordance with Section 2.06(c) and (2) any such notices given in connection with any of the events specified in Section 2.08(d) may be conditioned upon (x) the consummation of the issuance of Equity Interests or Indebtedness (as applicable) or (y) the receipt of net cash proceeds from Asset Sales, Extraordinary Receipts or Returns of Capital. Promptly following receipt of any such notice relating to a Borrowing, the Administrative Agent shall advise the affected Lenders of the contents thereof. Subject to clauses (b), (c) and (e) of this Section, Section 2.07(b) and to the proviso to Section 2.15(c), each repayment and prepayment in Dollars shall be applied ratably (based on the outstanding principal amounts of such indebtedness) between the Dollar Lenders and the Multicurrency Lenders based on the then outstanding Loans denominated in Dollars and each repayment and prepayment in an Agreed Foreign Currency (including as a result of the Borrower’s receipt of proceeds from a prepayment event in such Agreed Foreign Currency) shall be applied ratably among the Multicurrency Lenders.
(ii)    In the event the Borrower is required to make any concurrent prepayments under both paragraph (b) and also another paragraph of this Section 2.08, any such prepayments shall be applied toward a prepayment pursuant to paragraph (b) before any prepayment pursuant to any other paragraph of this Section 2.08.
(iii)    Repayments and prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.10 and shall be made in the manner specified in Section 2.07(b).
SECTION 2.09.    Fees.
(a)    Commitment Fee. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender a commitment fee, which shall accrue for the period beginning on the Restatement Effective Date to and including the earlier of the date such Lender’s Commitment terminates and the Revolver Termination Date, at a rate (A) as of the close of business on each day when the Minimum Utilization Amount with respect to such Lender exceeds the aggregate principal amount of the Loans of such Lender, equal to (x) 2.00% per annum on the excess of (i) the Minimum Utilization Amount with respect to such Lender over (ii) the aggregate principal amount of the Loans of such Lender as of the close of business on such day and (y) 0.50% per annum on the excess of (i) such Lender’s Commitment over (ii) the Minimum Utilization Amount with respect to such Lender or (B) as of the close of business on each day when the aggregate principal amount of the Loans of such Lender equals or exceeds the Minimum Utilization Amount with respect to such Lender, 0.50% per annum on the excess of (i) such Lender’s Commitment over (ii) the aggregate principal amount of the Loans of such Lender as of the close of business on such day. Accrued commitment fees shall be payable in arrears (x) within one Business Day after each Quarterly Date and (y) on the earlier of the date the Commitments terminate and the Revolver Termination Date, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Restatement Effective Date. All commitment fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number

53
25629977.9.BUSINESS



of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). For purposes of computing commitment fees, the Commitments shall be deemed to be used to the extent of the outstanding Loans of all Lenders.
(b)    Administrative Agent Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Borrower and the Administrative Agent.
(c)    Facility Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of (and distribution to) each Lender, facility fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Borrower and the Lenders in the Lender Letter.

All fees payable hereunder shall be paid on the dates due, in Dollars and immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent for distribution, in the case of facility fees and participation fees, to the Lenders entitled thereto. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances absent manifest error. Any fees representing the Borrower’s reimbursement obligations of expenses, to the extent requirements of invoice are not otherwise specified in this Agreement, shall be due (subject to the other terms and conditions contained herein) within ten (10) Business Days of the date that the Borrower receives from the Administrative Agent a reasonably detailed invoice for such reimbursement obligations. On the Restatement Effective Date, the Borrower shall pay (i) all fees required to be paid on the Restatement Effective Date under that certain amended and restated fee letter, dated as of the Restatement Effective Date, by and between the Borrower and ING, (ii) all fees (if any) required to be paid on the Restatement Effective Date under the Lender Letter and (iii) all costs and expenses outstanding on such date and required to be paid pursuant to Section 9.03(a)(i) (to the extent invoiced).

(a)    ABR Loans. The Loans constituting each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin.
(b)    Eurocurrency Loans. The Loans constituting each Eurocurrency Borrowing shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the related Interest Period for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Margin.
(c)    Default Interest. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Event of Default described in Section 7.01(a), (b), (d) (but only with respect to Section 6.07), (h), (i), (j) or (o) has occurred and is continuing, or on the written demand of the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders if any other Event of Default described in any other clause of Section 7.01 has occurred and is continuing, or if the Covered Debt Amount exceeds the Borrowing Base during the five (5)-Business Day period (or, if applicable, the 30-Business Day period) referred to in Section 2.08(c), the interest applicable to the Loans shall accrue, and any fee or other amount payable by the Borrower hereunder shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of principal of any Loan, 2% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided above, or (ii) in the case of any fee or other amount, 2% plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section.

54
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(d)    Payment of Interest. Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan in the Currency in which such Loan is denominated and upon termination in full of the Commitments; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Loan prior to the Maturity Date), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of any Eurocurrency Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Borrowing shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.
(e)    Computation. All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that (a) interest on Eurocurrency Borrowings in Canadian Dollars, AUD and NZD and ABR Borrowings at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), (b) interest on Eurocurrency Borrowings in Pounds Sterling shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days, and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) and (c) the basis on which interest hereunder shall be computed on Eurocurrency Borrowings in an Agreed Foreign Currency other than Canadian Dollars, Euros, Pounds Sterling, AUD and NZD shall be agreed by each Multicurrency Lender and the Borrower at the time such Agreed Foreign Currency is consented to in accordance with the definition thereof. The applicable Alternate Base Rate or Adjusted LIBO Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
SECTION 2.11.    Eurocurrency Borrowing Provisions.
(a)    Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of the Interest Period for any Eurocurrency Borrowing of a Class (the Currency of such Borrowing herein called the “Affected Currency”):
(i)    the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Affected Currency for such Interest Period; or
(ii)    the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders of such Class that the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Affected Currency for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their respective Eurocurrency Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders by telephone, telecopy or e-mail as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Eurocurrency Borrowing to, or the continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in the Affected Currency, shall be ineffective and, if the Affected Currency is Dollars, such Borrowing (unless prepaid) shall be continued as, or converted to, an ABR Borrowing and, if

55
25629977.9.BUSINESS



the Affected Currency is a Foreign Currency, such Borrowing shall be converted to Dollars based on the Dollar Equivalent at such time and shall be an ABR Borrowing, (ii) if the Affected Currency is Dollars and any Borrowing Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing and (iii) if the Affected Currency is a Foreign Currency, any Borrowing Request that requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in the Affected Currency shall be ineffective.
(b)    Illegality. Without duplication of any other rights that any Lender has hereunder, if any Lender determines that any law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful for any Lender to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to the LIBO Rate, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, any LIBO Quoted Currency in the London interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to make or continue Eurocurrency Borrowings or to convert ABR Borrowings to Eurocurrency Borrowings shall be suspended, and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining Eurocurrency Borrowings the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, the interest rate on which ABR Borrowings of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (x) (A) all Eurocurrency Borrowings in Dollars of such Lender shall automatically convert to ABR Borrowings (the interest rate on which ABR Borrowings of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate) either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Borrowings to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Borrowings and (y) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Alternate Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the LIBO Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate. Upon any such conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so converted. To the extent any Eurocurrency Borrowing so converted is in an Agreed Foreign Currency, such Eurocurrency Borrowing shall be converted to Dollars based on the Dollar Equivalent of such Borrowing at the time of such conversion.
SECTION 2.12.    Increased Costs.
(a)    Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:
(i)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate);

56
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(ii)    subject any Lender to any Taxes (other than Covered Taxes and Taxes described in clauses (a)(ii), (c), (d) and (e) of the definition of “Excluded Taxes”) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or
(iii)    impose on any Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Eurocurrency Loans made by such Lender or participation therein;
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining any Eurocurrency Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then, upon the request of such Lender, the Borrower will pay to such Lender, in Dollars, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(b)    Capital Requirements. If any Lender determines that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity position), by an amount deemed to be material by such Lender, then from time to time the Borrower will pay to such Lender, in Dollars, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c)    Certificates from Lenders. A certificate of a Lender setting forth the amount or amounts, in Dollars, necessary to compensate such Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be promptly delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.
(d)    Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that no Obligor shall be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than six (6) months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower in writing of any such Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions.
SECTION 2.13.    Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period therefor (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period therefor, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurocurrency Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice is permitted to be revocable under Section 2.08(f) and is revoked in accordance

57
25629977.9.BUSINESS



herewith), (d) the assignment as a result of a request by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.17(b) of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period therefor or (e) the conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period therefor as a result of the occurrence of a CAM Exchange, then, in any such event, the Borrower shall compensate each affected Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event (excluding loss of anticipated profits). In the case of a Eurocurrency Loan, the loss to any Lender attributable to any such event shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be equal to the excess, if any, of:
(i)    the amount of interest that such Lender would pay for a deposit equal to the principal amount of such Loan referred to in clauses (a) through (e) of this Section 2.13 denominated in the Currency of such Loan for the period from the date of such payment, conversion, failure or assignment to the last day of the then current Interest Period for such Eurocurrency Loan (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, the duration of the Interest Period that would have resulted from such borrowing, conversion or continuation) if the interest rate payable on such deposit were equal to the Adjusted LIBO Rate for such Currency for such Interest Period, over
(ii)    the amount of interest that such Lender would earn on such principal amount for such period if such Lender were to invest such principal amount for such period at the interest rate that would be bid by such Lender (or an Affiliate of such Lender) for deposits denominated in such Currency from other banks in the Eurocurrency market (or, in the case of any Non-LIBO Quoted Currency, in the relevant market for such Non-LIBO Quoted Currency) at the commencement of such period.
Payments under this Section shall be made upon written request of a Lender delivered not later than five (5) Business Days following the payment, conversion, or failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay that gives rise to a claim under this Section accompanied by a written certificate of such Lender setting forth in reasonable detail the amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section, which certificate shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
SECTION 2.14.    Taxes.
(a)    Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Taxes, unless otherwise required by applicable law; provided that if the Borrower shall be required to deduct or withhold any Taxes from such payments, then (i) the Borrower shall make such deductions or withholdings, (ii) the Borrower shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and (iii) if such Tax is a Covered Tax, the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) the Administrative Agent or Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made.

58
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(b)    Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. In addition, the Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(c)    Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender for and, within ten (10) Business Days after written demand therefor, pay the full amount of any Covered Taxes (including Covered Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.14) payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Covered Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)    Indemnification by the Lenders. To the extent required by any applicable law, the Administrative Agent may withhold from any payment to any Lender an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding Tax. Without limiting the provisions of Section 2.14(a) or (c), each Lender shall, and does hereby, agree severally to indemnify the Administrative Agent, and shall make payable in respect thereof within 10 days after demand therefor, (i) against any and all Covered Taxes attributable to such Lender and any and all related losses, claims, liabilities and expenses (including fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for the Administrative Agent) in each case attributable to such Lender (collectively, “Tax Damages”) incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent by the IRS or any other Governmental Authority as a result of the failure of the Administrative Agent to properly withhold Tax from amounts paid to or for the account of such Lender for any reason (including because the appropriate form was not delivered or not properly executed, or because such Lender failed to notify the Administrative Agent of a change in circumstance that rendered the exemption from, or reduction of withholding tax ineffective) (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Taxes and Tax Damages and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so pursuant to and in accordance with Section 2.14(c)) and (ii) Tax Damages attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 9.04 relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph. The agreements in this paragraph shall survive the resignation and/or replacement of the Administrative Agent, any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all other obligations.
(e)    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.14, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(f)    Status of Lenders.

59
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(i)    Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments under this Agreement or any other Loan Documents shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.14(f)(ii)(A) or (B) or Section 2.14(g) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered under this Agreement expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(h)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If the Administrative Agent or any Lender determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Borrower or with respect to which the Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.14, it shall pay to the Borrower an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Borrower under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, as the case may be, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund), provided that the Borrower, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Borrower pursuant to this paragraph (h) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or any Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or any Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (h), in no event will the Administrative Agent or any Lender be required to pay any amount to the Borrower pursuant to this paragraph (h) the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender in a less favorable net position after-Taxes than the Administrative Agent or such Lender would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph (h) shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its Tax returns or its books or records (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the Borrower or any other Person.
(i)    Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 2.14, the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.
SECTION 2.15.    Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment: Sharing of Set-offs.
(a)    Payments by the Borrower. The Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees, or under Sections 2.12, 2.13 or 2.14,

62
25629977.9.BUSINESS



or otherwise) or under any other Loan Document (except to the extent otherwise provided therein) prior to noon, Local Time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off, deduction or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Account, except as otherwise expressly provided in the relevant Loan Document and except payments pursuant to Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14 and 9.03, which shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension.
All amounts owing under this Agreement (including commitment fees, payments required under Sections 2.12, 2.13 and 2.14 relating to any Loan denominated in Dollars, but not including principal of and interest on any Loan denominated in any Foreign Currency or payments relating to any such Loan required under Section 2.14 denominated in any Foreign Currency, which are payable in such Foreign Currency) or under any other Loan Document (except to the extent otherwise provided therein) are payable in Dollars. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Borrower shall fail to pay any principal of any Loan when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration, by mandatory prepayment or otherwise), the unpaid portion of such Loan shall, if such Loan is not denominated in Dollars, automatically be redenominated in Dollars on the due date thereof (or, if such due date is a day other than the last day of the Interest Period therefor, on the last day of such Interest Period) in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent thereof on the date of such redenomination and such principal shall be payable on demand and if the Borrower shall fail to pay any interest on any Loan that is not denominated in Dollars, such interest shall automatically be redenominated in Dollars on the due date therefor (or, if such due date is a day other than the last day of the Interest Period therefor, on the last day of such Interest Period) in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent thereof on the date of such redenomination and such interest shall be payable on demand.
(b)    Application of Insufficient Payments. If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees of a Class then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, to pay interest and fees of such Class then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees of such Class then due to such parties, and (ii) second, to pay principal of such Class then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal of such Class then due to such parties.
(c)    Pro Rata Treatment. Except to the extent otherwise provided herein: (i) each Borrowing of a Class shall be made from the Lenders of such Class, each payment of commitment fee under Section 2.09 shall be made for the account of the Lenders of the applicable Class, and each termination or reduction of the amount of the Commitments of a Class under Section 2.06, Section 2.08 or otherwise shall be applied to the respective Commitments of the Lenders of such Class, pro rata according to the amounts of their respective Commitments of such Class; (ii) each Borrowing of a Class shall be allocated pro rata among the Lenders of such Class according to the

63
25629977.9.BUSINESS



amounts of their respective Commitments of such Class (in the case of the making of Loans) or their respective Loans of such Class that are to be included in such Borrowing (in the case of conversions and continuations of Loans); (iii) each payment or prepayment of principal of Loans of a Class by the Borrower shall be made for the account of the Lenders of such Class pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of the Loans of such Class held by them (and, with respect to the pro rata treatment of prepayments between Classes, any such prepayments shall be made in accordance with the provisions of the last paragraph of Section 2.08(d) and Sections 2.08(e) and (f)); and (iv) each payment of interest on Loans by the Borrower shall be made for the account of the Lenders of such Class pro rata in accordance with the amounts of interest on such Loans then due and payable to the respective Lenders; provided, however, that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the event that the Borrower wishes to make a Multicurrency Borrowing in an Agreed Foreign Currency and the Multicurrency Commitments are fully utilized, the Borrower may make a Borrowing under the Dollar Commitments (if otherwise permitted hereunder) and may use the proceeds of such Borrowing to prepay the Multicurrency Loans (without making a ratable prepayment to the Dollar Loans) solely to the extent that the Borrower concurrently utilizes any Multicurrency Commitments made available as a result of such prepayment to make a Multicurrency Borrowing in an Agreed Foreign Currency.
(d)    Sharing of Payments by Lenders. If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment denominated in a Currency in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Loans denominated in such Currency, resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans denominated in such Currency, and accrued interest thereon then due than the proportion received by any other Lender with Loans denominated in such Currency, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans denominated in such Currency of other Lenders with Loans denominated in such Currency to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders with Loans denominated in such Currency ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Loans denominated in such Currency (subject, for the avoidance of doubt, to Section 2.08(e)(iv) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing); provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to the Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply). The Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.
(e)    Presumptions of Payment. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the

64
25629977.9.BUSINESS



Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders the amount due. In such event, if the Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent at the Federal Funds Effective Rate.
(f)    Certain Deductions by the Administrative Agent. If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.04(a) or (b) or Section 2.15(e), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.
SECTION 2.16.    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)    commitment fees pursuant to Section 2.09(a) shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender to the extent, and during the period, such Lender is a Defaulting Lender; and
(b)    the Commitment and Revolving Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether all Lenders, two-thirds of the Lenders or the Required Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder or under any other Loan Document (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 9.02, except for any amendment or waiver described in Section 9.02(b)(i), (ii) or (iii)); provided that any waiver, amendment or modification requiring the consent of all Lenders, two-thirds of the Lenders or each affected Lender which affects such Defaulting Lender differently than other Lenders or affected Lenders (as applicable) shall require the consent of such Defaulting Lender.
In the event that the Administrative Agent and the Borrower each agrees in writing that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then, on the date of such agreement, such Lender shall purchase at par the portion of the Loans of the other Lenders as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Lender to hold such Loans in accordance with its Applicable Percentage.
SECTION 2.17.    Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.
(a)    Designation of a Different Lending Office. If any Lender exercises its rights under Section 2.11(b) or requests compensation under Section 2.12, or if the Borrower is required to pay any Covered Taxes or additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts

65
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(subject to overall policy considerations of such Lender) to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if in the sole reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.12 or 2.14, as the case may be, in the future, or eliminate the circumstance giving rise to such Lender exercising its rights under Section 2.11(b) and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any cost or expense not required to be reimbursed by the Borrower and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(b)    Replacement of Lenders. If any Lender exercises its rights under Section 2.11(b) or requests compensation under Section 2.12, or if the Borrower is required to pay any Covered Taxes or additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14 and, in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different lending office in accordance with Section 2.17(a), or if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, or if any Lender becomes a Non-Consenting Lender, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts) and (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.12 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.14, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.
(c)    Defaulting Lenders. If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.04 or 9.03(c), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion and notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender for the benefit of the Administrative Agent to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid, and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender under such Sections, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.

None of the Borrower, any Subsidiary or any ERISA Affiliate has incurred a complete or partial withdrawal from any Multiemployer Plan, and, if each of the Borrower, any Subsidiary and each ERISA Affiliate were to withdraw from all Multiemployer Plans in a complete withdrawal as of the date this assurance is given or deemed given, the aggregate Withdrawal Liability that would be incurred would not be in excess of $2,500,000.
(e)There are no actions, suits or claims pending against or involving a Plan (other than routine individual claims for benefits) or, to the knowledge of any Tennenbaum Party or any ERISA Affiliate, threatened, that would reasonably be expected to be asserted successfully against any Plan and, if so asserted successfully, would reasonably be expected either singly or in the aggregate to result in material liability.

(ii)    The Borrower acknowledges that the Administrative Agent and the Lenders have agreed to exclude each Structured Subsidiary as an Obligor only for so long as such Person qualifies as a “Structured Subsidiary” pursuant to the definition thereof, and thereafter such Person shall no longer constitute a “Structured Subsidiary” for any purpose of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
(iii)    The Borrower acknowledges that the Administrative Agent and the Lenders have agreed to exclude each SBIC Subsidiary as an Obligor only for so long as such Person qualifies as an “SBIC Subsidiary” pursuant to the definition thereof, and thereafter such Person shall no longer constitute an “SBIC Subsidiary” for any purpose of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.

(iii)    cause the Financing Subsidiaries to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent such certificates and agreements, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, as it shall determine are necessary to confirm that such Financing Subsidiary qualifies or continues to qualify as a “Structured Subsidiary” or an “SBIC Subsidiary”, as applicable, pursuant to the definitions thereof;
(iv)    in the case of any Portfolio Investment consisting of a Bank Loan (as defined in Section 5.13) that does not constitute all of the credit extended to the underlying borrower under the relevant underlying loan documents and a Financing Subsidiary holds any interest in the loans or other extensions of credit under such loan documents, (x)(1) cause the interest owned by such Financing Subsidiary to be evidenced by a separate note or notes, which note or notes are either (A) in the name of such Financing Subsidiary or (B) in the name of the Borrower, endorsed in blank and delivered to the applicable Financing Subsidiary and beneficially owned by the Financing Subsidiary (or, in the case of a Noteless Assigned Loan (as defined in Section 5.13), cause the interest owned by such Financing Subsidiary to be evidenced by separate assignment documentation contemplated by paragraph 1(b) of Schedule 1.01(d) in the name of such Financing Subsidiary) and (2) not permit such Financing Subsidiary to have a participation acquired from an Obligor in such underlying loan documents and the extensions of credit thereunder or any other indirect interest therein acquired from an Obligor; and (y) ensure that, subject to Section 5.08(c)(v) below, all amounts owing to any Obligor by the underlying borrower or other obligated party are remitted by such borrower or obligated party (or the applicable administrative agents, collateral agents or equivalent Person) directly to the Custodian Account and no other amounts owing by such underlying borrower or obligated party are remitted to the Custodian Account;

88
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(v)    in the event that any Obligor is acting as an agent or administrative agent under any loan documents with respect to any Bank Loan (or is acting in an analogous agency capacity under any agreement related to any Portfolio Investment) and such Obligor does not hold all of the credit extended to the underlying borrower or issuer under the relevant underlying loan documents or other agreements, ensure that (1) all funds held by such Obligor in such capacity as agent or administrative agent are segregated from all other funds of such Obligor and clearly identified as being held in an agency capacity (an “Agency Account”); (2) all amounts owing on account of such Bank Loan or Portfolio Investment by the underlying borrower or other obligated party are remitted by such borrower or obligated party to either (A) such Agency Account or (B) directly to an account in the name of the underlying lender to whom such amounts are owed (for the avoidance of doubt, no funds representing amounts owing to more than one underlying lender may be remitted to any single account other than the Agency Account); and (3) within two (2) Business Days after receipt of such funds, such Obligor acting in its capacity as agent or administrative agent shall distribute any such funds belonging to any Obligor to the Custodian Account (provided that if any distribution referred to in this clause (c) is not permitted by applicable bankruptcy law to be made within such two (2) Business Day period as a result of the bankruptcy of the underlying borrower, such Obligor shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain permission to make such distribution and shall make such distribution as soon as legally permitted to do so);

(i)    in the case of any Investment in Indebtedness other than a Noteless Assigned Loan, if such destroyed or lost document is an original promissory note registered in the name of an Obligor, such original promissory note shall constitute an “Undelivered Note” and the Borrower shall have up to twenty (20) Business Days from the date when any Tennenbaum Party has knowledge of such loss or destruction to deliver to the Custodian a replacement promissory note and comply with the requirements of paragraph (1)(c)(x) of Schedule 1.01(d); provided that during such twenty (20) Business Day period the limitations under paragraph (1)(a)(i) and (ii) of Schedule 1.01(d) shall apply; and

90
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(b)    Portfolio Valuation Etc.
(i)    Settlement-Date Basis. For purposes of this Agreement, all determinations of whether a Portfolio Investment is an Eligible Portfolio Investment shall be determined on a Settlement-Date Basis, provided that no such investment shall be included as an Eligible Portfolio Investment to the extent it has not been paid for in full.
(ii)    Determination of Values. The Borrower will conduct reviews of the value to be assigned to each of its Eligible Portfolio Investments as follows:
(A)    Quoted Investments External Review. With respect to Eligible Portfolio Investments (including Cash Equivalents) for which market quotations are readily available and are reflective of an actual trade executed within a reasonable period of such quotation (“Quoted Investments”), the Borrower shall, not less frequently than once each calendar week, determine the market value of such Quoted Investments which shall, in each case, be determined in accordance with one of the following methodologies as selected by the Borrower (each such value, an “External Quoted Value”):
(w)    in the case of public and Rule 144A securities, the average of the recent bid prices as determined by two Approved Dealers selected by the Borrower,
(x)    in the case of Bank Loans, (i) by taking the average of the bid prices as determined by two Approved Dealers selected by the Borrower, (ii) by an Approved Pricing Service which makes reference to at least two broker-dealers or (iii) by an Approved Pricing Service which makes reference to one broker-dealer; provided, that any Bank Loan valued in accordance with this clause (iii) shall be a “Limited Reference Quoted Investment”; provided, further, that the value of any Limited Reference Quoted Investment shall be subject to testing as an IVP Tested Asset as set forth in clause (B)(x) below and, in the event that the high end of the range of the IVP External Unquoted Value of any Limited Reference Quoted Investment so tested is lower than the External Quoted Value of such Limited Reference Quoted Investment, the External Quoted Value of such Limited Reference Quoted Investment shall be deemed equal to the midpoint of the range of such IVP External Unquoted Value until the following Valuation Testing Date (as defined below) unless the Administrative Agent shall have provided written notice to the Borrower prior to such following Valuation Testing Date that such Limited Reference Quoted Asset shall be an IVP Tested Asset as of such following Valuation Testing Date,
(y)    in the case of any Quoted Investment traded on an exchange, the closing price for such Eligible Portfolio Investment most recently posted on such exchange, and

91
25629977.9.BUSINESS



(z)    in the case of any other Quoted Investment, the fair market value thereof as determined by an Approved Pricing Service; and
(B)    Unquoted Investments External Review. With respect to Eligible Portfolio Investments for which market quotations are not readily available (“Unquoted Investments”), and Limited Reference Quoted Investment:
(x)    For each fiscal quarter (or such other dates as are reasonably agreed to by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (provided that such testing dates shall occur not less than quarterly), each a “Valuation Testing Date”), the Administrative Agent through an Independent Valuation Provider will, solely for purposes of determining the Borrowing Base, test the values as of such Valuation Testing Date of those Unquoted Investments and Limited Reference Quoted Assets that are Portfolio Investments included in the Borrowing Base selected by the Administrative Agent (such selected assets, the “IVP Tested Assets” and such value, the “IVP External Unquoted Value”); provided that the fair value of such Portfolio Investments tested by the Independent Valuation Provider as of any Valuation Testing Date shall be approximately 25% (but in no event shall exceed 30%) of the aggregate value of the Unquoted Investments and Limited Reference Quoted Investments in the Borrowing Base (the determination of fair value for such 25% threshold shall be based off of the last determination of value of the Portfolio Investments pursuant to this Section 5.12 and, for the avoidance of doubt, in the case of any Unquoted Investments acquired during the calendar quarter, the value shall be as determined pursuant to clause (E)(z)(2) below); provided further, that the Administrative Agent shall provide written notice to the Borrower, setting forth a description of which Unquoted Investments and/or and Limited Reference Quoted Assets shall be IVP Tested Assets as of such Valuation Testing Date, not later than 45 days prior to the Valuation Testing Date (or such later date as is reasonably agreed by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent). Each such valuation report shall also include the information required to comply with clause (ii) of paragraph 7 and paragraph 23 of Schedule 1.01(d) for an IVP Tested Asset (to the extent such provisions are applicable).
(y)    With respect to all Unquoted Investments that are not IVP Tested Assets as of such Valuation Testing Date (the “Borrower Tested Assets”), the Borrower shall request an Approved Third-Party Appraiser to assist the Board of Directors of the Parent in determining the fair market value of the remaining Unquoted Investments, as of each Valuation Testing Date (such value, the “Borrower External Unquoted Value”), and to provide the Board of Directors with a written independent valuation report as part of that assistance each quarter; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board of Directors of the Parent may, without the assistance of an Approved Third-Party Appraiser, determine the fair value of any Unquoted Investment so long as (i) the aggregate fair value of Portfolio

92
25629977.9.BUSINESS



Investments issued by the applicable issuer does not exceed $10,000,000 and (ii) the aggregate Value of all such Unquoted Investments so determined does not at any time exceed 5% of the aggregate value of all Eligible Portfolio Investments (the “No External Review Assets”). The fair market value of any Unquoted Investment (other than any No External Review Assets and as provided pursuant to clause (E)(z)(2) below) that has been determined without the assistance of an Approved Third-Party Appraiser as at the last day of any fiscal quarter shall be deemed to be zero as at the last day of such fiscal quarter (but effective upon the date upon which the Borrowing Base Certificate for such last day is required to be delivered) if an Approved Third-Party Appraiser has not assisted the Board of Directors of the Parent in determining the fair market value of such Portfolio Investment, as at such date. Each such valuation report shall also include the information required to comply with clause (ii) of paragraph 7 and paragraph 23 of Schedule 1.01(d).
(C)    Internal Review. The Borrower shall conduct internal reviews to determine the value of all Eligible Portfolio Investments at least once each calendar week which shall take into account any events of which any Tennenbaum Party has actual knowledge that materially adversely affect the value of any Eligible Portfolio Investment (each such value, an “Internal Value”).
(D)    Value of Quoted Investments. Subject to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(G), the “Value” of each Quoted Investment for all purposes of this Agreement shall be the lowest of (1) the Internal Value of such Quoted Investment as most recently determined by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(C), (2) the External Quoted Value of such Quoted Investment as most recently determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(A) and (3) if such Quoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Quoted Investment.
(E)    Value of Unquoted Investments. Subject to Sections 5.12(b)(ii)(G) and 5.12(b)(iii),
(x)     if the Internal Value of any Unquoted Investment as most recently determined by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(C) falls below the range of the IVP External Unquoted Value or the Borrower External Unquoted Value of such Unquoted Investment as most recently determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(B), then the “Value” of such Unquoted Investment for all purposes of this Agreement shall be deemed to be the lower of (i) the Internal Value and (ii) if such Unquoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Unquoted Investment;
(y)    (i) if the Internal Value of any Unquoted Investment as most recently determined by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(C) falls above the range of the Borrower External Unquoted Value of such Unquoted Investment as most recently determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(B), then the “Value” of

93
25629977.9.BUSINESS



such Unquoted Investment for all purposes of this Agreement shall be deemed to be the lower of (i) the midpoint of the range of the Borrower External Unquoted Value and (ii) if such Unquoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Unquoted Investment;
(ii) if the Internal Value of any Unquoted Investment as most recently determined by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(C) falls more than 5% above the midpoint of the range of the IVP External Unquoted Value of such Unquoted Investment as most recently determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(B), then the “Value” of such Unquoted Investment for all purposes of this Agreement shall be deemed to be the lower of (i) the midpoint of the range of the IVP External Unquoted Value and (ii) if such Unquoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Unquoted Investment; and
(z)    if the Internal Value of any Unquoted Investment as most recently determined by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(C) is within the range of the Borrower External Unquoted Value, or within the range of or not more than 5% above the midpoint of the range of the IVP External Unquoted Value, of such Unquoted Investment as most recently determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(B), then the “Value” of such Unquoted Investment for all purposes of this Agreement shall be deemed to be the lower of (i) the Internal Value and (ii) if such Unquoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Unquoted Investment;
except that:
(1)    if the difference between the highest and lowest Borrower External Unquoted Value in such range exceeds an amount equal to 6% (or, with respect to determining the value of an Unquoted Investment that is Performing Common Equity, 15%) of the midpoint of such range, the “Value” of such Unquoted Investment for all purposes of this Agreement shall instead be deemed to be the lowest of (i) the lowest Borrower External Unquoted Value in such range, (ii) the Internal Value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii)(C), and (iii) if such Unquoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Unquoted Investment;

If, based upon such weekly internal review, the Borrower determines that a Borrowing Base Deficiency exists or that the Borrowing Base has declined by more than 15% from the Borrowing Base stated in the Borrowing Base Certificate last delivered by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent, then the Borrower shall, promptly and in any event within two (2) Business Days as provided in Section 5.01(g), deliver a Borrowing Base Certificate reflecting the new amount of the Borrowing Base and shall take the actions, and make the payments and prepayments (if any), all as more specifically set forth in Section 2.08(c).
(G)    Failure to Determine Values. If the Borrower shall fail to determine the value of any Eligible Portfolio Investment as at any date pursuant to the requirements (but subject to the exclusions) of the foregoing subclauses (A), (B), (C), (D) or (E) (or if the Administrative Agent shall fail to determine the value of any Eligible Portfolio Investment as described in the foregoing subclause (B)(x) as a result of any action, inaction or lack of cooperation of the Borrower or any of its Affiliates), then the “Value” of such Eligible Portfolio Investment as at such date shall be deemed to be zero. Except as provided in the immediately preceding sentence, if the Administrative Agent shall fail to determine the value of any Eligible Portfolio Investment as at any date pursuant to clause (B)(x), then the “Value” of such Eligible Portfolio Investment as at such date (subject to Section 5.12(b)(iii) below) shall be the lower of (x) the Internal Value and (y) if such Unquoted Investment is a debt investment, the par or face value of such Unquoted Investment.

There shall be no limit on the number of such appraisals requested by the Administrative Agent and the costs of any such valuation shall be at the expense of the Borrower. If (x) the value of any Borrower Tested Asset determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii) is less than the value determined by the Independent Valuation Provider pursuant to this clause, then the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii) shall continue to be used as the “Value” for purposes of this Agreement and (y) if the value of any Borrower Tested Asset determined pursuant to

95
25629977.9.BUSINESS



Section 5.12(b)(ii) is greater than the value determined by the Independent Valuation Provider and the difference between such values is (1) less than or equal to 5% of the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii), then the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii) shall become the “Value” of such Portfolio Investment, (2) greater than 5% and less than or equal to 20% of the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii), then the “Value” of such Portfolio Investment shall become the average of the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii) and the value determined by the Independent Valuation Provider, and (3) greater than 20% of the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii), then either (i) the “Value” of such Portfolio Investment shall be the lesser of the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii) and the value determined by the Independent Valuation Provider or (ii) if the Borrower so elects, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall retain (at the Borrower’s sole cost and expense) an additional Approved Third-Party Appraiser and, upon completion of such appraisal, the “Value” of such Portfolio Investment shall be the average of the three valuations (with the average of the value determined pursuant to Section 5.12(b)(ii) and the value determined by the Independent Valuation Provider to be used until the third value is obtained). For purposes of this Section 5.12(b)(iii), the “Value” of any Portfolio Investment for which the Independent Valuation Provider’s value is used shall be the midpoint of the range (if any) determined by the Independent Valuation Provider.
(iv)    Generally Applicable Valuation Provisions.
(A)    The Independent Valuation Provider shall apply a recognized valuation methodology that is commonly accepted in the Borrower’s industry for valuing Portfolio Investments of the type being valued and held by the Obligors. Other procedures relating to the valuation will be reasonably agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower.

For the avoidance of doubt, the value of any Portfolio Investments determined in accordance with any provision of this Section 5.12 shall be the Value of such Portfolio Investment for purposes of this Agreement until a new Value for such Portfolio Investment is subsequently determined in good faith in accordance with this Section 5.12.

(C)    The documented out-of-pocket costs of any valuation reasonably incurred by the Administrative Agent under this Section 5.12 shall be at the expense of the Borrower.

Each Lender, each Person acquiring a participation from any Lender as contemplated by Section 9.04 and the Borrower hereby consents and agrees to the CAM Exchange. It is understood and agreed that the CAM Exchange, in itself, will not affect the aggregate amount of Designated Obligations owing by the Obligors. The Borrower and the Lenders agree from time to time to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent all such promissory notes and other instruments and documents as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request to evidence and confirm the respective interests and obligations of the Lenders after giving effect to the CAM Exchange, and each Lender agrees to surrender any promissory notes originally received by it in connection with its Loans hereunder to the Administrative Agent against delivery of any promissory notes so executed and delivered; provided that the failure of the Borrower to execute or deliver or of any Lender to accept such promissory note, instrument or document shall not affect the validity or effectiveness of the CAM Exchange.
As a result of the CAM Exchange, on and after the CAM Exchange Date, each payment received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any Loan Document in respect of the Designated Obligations shall be distributed to the Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective CAM Percentages (to be redetermined as of each such date of payment). Any direct payment received by a Lender on or after the CAM Exchange Date, including by way of set-off, in respect of a Designated Obligation shall be paid over to the Administrative Agent for distribution to the Lenders in accordance herewith.

(b)    In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation thereof, no arrangements in respect of any Hedging Agreement the obligations under which constitute Hedging Agreement Obligations, will create (or be deemed to create) in favor of any Secured Party that is a party thereto any rights in connection with the management or release of any Collateral or of the obligations of any Obligor under any Loan Document. By accepting the benefits of the Collateral, each Secured Party that is a party to any such arrangement in respect of Hedging Agreements shall be deemed to have appointed the Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent to serve as administrative agent and collateral agent, respectively, under the Loan Documents and agreed to be bound by the Loan Documents as a Secured Party thereunder, subject to the limitations set forth in this paragraph.

SECTION 8.12.    Credit Bidding. The Secured Parties hereby irrevocably authorize the Collateral Agent, at the direction of the Required Lenders, to credit bid all or any portion of the Secured Obligations (including by accepting some or all of the Collateral in satisfaction of some or all of the Secured Obligations pursuant to a deed in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise) and in such manner purchase (either directly or through one or more acquisition vehicles) all or any portion of the Collateral (a) at any sale thereof conducted under the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, including under Sections 363, 1123 or 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code, or any similar laws in any other jurisdictions to which an Obligor is subject, or (b) at any other sale, foreclosure or acceptance of collateral in lieu of debt conducted by (or with the consent or at the direction of) the Collateral Agent (whether by judicial action or otherwise) in accordance with any applicable law and the terms of the Loan Documents. In connection with any such credit bid and purchase, the Secured Obligations owed to the Secured Parties shall be entitled to be, and shall be, credit bid by the Collateral Agent at the direction of the Required Lenders on a ratable basis (with Secured Obligations with respect to contingent or unliquidated claims receiving contingent interests in the acquired assets on a ratable basis that shall vest upon the liquidation of such claims in an amount proportional to the liquidated portion of the contingent claim amount used in allocating the contingent interests) for the asset or assets so purchased (or for the equity interests or debt instruments of the acquisition vehicle or vehicles that are issued in connection with such purchase). In connection with any such bid, (i) the Collateral Agent shall be authorized to form one or more acquisition vehicles and to assign any successful credit bid to such acquisition vehicle or vehicles, (ii) each of the Secured Parties’ ratable interests in the Secured Obligations which were credit bid shall be deemed without any further action under this Agreement to be assigned to such vehicle or vehicles for the purpose of closing such sale, (iii) the Collateral Agent shall be authorized to adopt documents providing for the governance of the acquisition vehicle or vehicles (provided that any actions by the Collateral Agent with respect to such acquisition vehicle or vehicles, including any disposition of the assets or equity interests thereof, shall be governed, directly or indirectly, by, and the governing

128
25629977.9.BUSINESS



documents shall provide for, control by the vote of the Required Lenders or their permitted assignees under the terms of this Agreement or the governing documents of the applicable acquisition vehicle or vehicles, as the case may be, irrespective of the termination of this Agreement and without giving effect to the limitations on actions by the Required Lenders contained in Section 9.02 of this Agreement), (iv) the Collateral Agent on behalf of such acquisition vehicle or vehicles shall be authorized to issue to each of the Secured Parties, ratably on account of the relevant Secured Obligations which were credit bid, interests, whether as equity, partnership, limited partnership interests or membership interests, in any such acquisition vehicle and/or debt instruments issued by such acquisition vehicle, all without the need for any Secured Party or acquisition vehicle to take any further action, and (v) to the extent that Secured Obligations that are assigned to an acquisition vehicle are not used to acquire Collateral for any reason (as a result of another bid being higher or better, because the amount of Secured Obligations assigned to the acquisition vehicle exceeds the amount of Secured Obligations credit bid by the acquisition vehicle or otherwise), such Secured Obligations shall automatically be reassigned to the Secured Parties pro rata with their original interest in such Secured Obligations and the equity interests and/or debt instruments issued by any acquisition vehicle on account of such Secured Obligations shall automatically be cancelled, without the need for any Secured Party or any acquisition vehicle to take any further action. Notwithstanding that the ratable portion of the Secured Obligations of each Secured Party are deemed assigned to the acquisition vehicle or vehicles as set forth in clause (ii) above, each Secured Party shall execute such documents and provide such information regarding the Secured Party (and/or any designee of the Secured Party which will receive interests in or debt instruments issued by such acquisition vehicle) as the Collateral Agent may reasonably request in connection with the formation of any acquisition vehicle, the formulation or submission of any credit bid or the consummation of the transactions contemplated by such credit bid.

(iii)    Although the Approved Electronic Platform and its primary web portal are secured with generally-applicable security procedures and policies implemented or modified by the Administrative Agent from time to time (including, as of the Restatement Effective Date, a user ID/password authorization system) and the Approved Electronic Platform is secured through a per-deal authorization method whereby each user may access the Approved Electronic Platform only on a deal-by-deal basis, each of the Lenders and each of the Obligors acknowledges and agrees that the distribution of material through an electronic medium is not necessarily secure, that the Administrative Agent is not responsible for approving or vetting the representatives or contacts of any Lender that are added to the Approved Electronic Platform, and that there are confidentiality and other risks associated with such distribution.

SECTION 9.02.    Waivers; Amendments.
(a)    No Deemed Waivers; Remedies Cumulative. No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of such Default at the time.
(b)    Amendments to this Agreement. Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Borrower and the Required Lenders or by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that, subject to Section 2.16(b), no such agreement shall

(vi)    change any of the provisions of the definition of the term “Agreed Foreign Currency” or any other provision hereof specifying the Foreign Currencies in which each Multicurrency Lender must make Multicurrency Loans, or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder with respect to the definition of “Agreed Foreign Currencies” without the written consent of each Multicurrency Lender, or
(vii)    permit the assignment or transfer by any Obligor of any of its rights or obligations under any Loan Document without the consent of each Lender;
provided, further, that (x) no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, and (y) the consent of Lenders holding not less than two-thirds of the total Revolving Credit Exposures and unused Commitments will be required for  (A) any change adverse to the Lenders affecting the provisions of this Agreement relating to the Borrowing Base (including the definitions used therein), or the provisions of Section 5.12(b)(ii), and (B) any release of any material portion of the Collateral other than for fair value or as otherwise permitted hereunder or under the other Loan Documents.

134
25629977.9.BUSINESS



of a particular Class be required for any waiver, amendment or modification of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
(c)    Amendments to Security Documents.  No Security Document nor any provision thereof may be waived, amended or modified, except to the extent otherwise expressly contemplated by the Guarantee and Security Agreement or the Custodial and Account Control Agreement, as applicable, and the Liens granted under the Guarantee and Security Agreement may not be spread to secure any additional obligations (including any increase in Loans hereunder, but excluding any such increase pursuant to a Commitment Increase under Section 2.06(e)) except to the extent otherwise expressly contemplated by the Guarantee and Security Agreement and except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Borrower, and by the Collateral Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that, subject to Section 2.16(b), (i) without the written consent of the holders exceeding 67% of the total Revolving Credit Exposures and unused Commitments, no such waiver, amendment or modification to the Guarantee and Security Agreement shall (A) release any Obligor representing more than 10% of the Stockholders’ Equity from its obligations under the Security Documents, (B) release any guarantor representing more than 10% of the Stockholders’ Equity under the Guarantee and Security Agreement from its guarantee obligations thereunder, or (C) amend the definition of “Collateral” under the Security Documents (except to add additional collateral) and (ii) without the written consent of each Lender, no such agreement shall (W) release all or substantially all of the Obligors from their respective obligations under the Security Documents, (X) release all or substantially all of the collateral security or otherwise terminate all or substantially all of the Liens under the Security Documents, (Y) release all or substantially all of the guarantors under the Guarantee and Security Agreement from their guarantee obligations thereunder, or (Z) alter the relative priorities of the obligations entitled to the Liens created under the Security Documents (except in connection with securing additional obligations equally and ratably with the Loans and other obligations hereunder) with respect to the collateral security provided thereby, including pursuant to Section 8.06 of the Guarantee and Security Agreement; except that no such consent described in clause (i) or (ii) above shall be required, and the Administrative Agent is hereby authorized (and so agrees with the Borrower) to direct the Collateral Agent under the Guarantee and Security Agreement, to release any Lien covering property (and to release any such guarantor) that is the subject of either a disposition of property permitted hereunder or a disposition to which the Required Lenders or the required number or percentage of Lenders have consented, or otherwise in accordance with Section 9.15.
(d)    Replacement of Non-Consenting Lender. If, in connection with any proposed amendment, waiver or consent requiring (i) the consent of “each Lender” or “each Lender affected thereby,” or (ii) the consent of “two-thirds of the holders of the total Revolving Credit Exposures and unused Commitments”, the consent of the Required Lenders is obtained, but the consent of other necessary Lenders is not obtained (any such Lender whose consent is necessary but not obtained being referred to herein as a “Non-Consenting Lender”), then the Borrower shall have the right, at its sole cost and expense, to replace each such Non-Consenting Lender or Lenders with one or more replacement Lenders pursuant to Section 2.17(b) so long as at the time of such replacement, each such replacement Lender consents to the proposed change, waiver, discharge or termination.
