(a)          If any Borrower hereafter commences a case in or under the Federal Bankruptcy Code, as amended (the "Code"), or is the subject of an involuntary case that results in an order for relief under the Code, then subject to court approval, Agent and Lenders shall thereupon be entitled, and Borrowers irrevocably consent to, relief from any stay imposed by Section 362 of the Code on or against the exercise of the rights and remedies otherwise available to Agent and Lenders as provided in the Loan Documents, and Borrowers hereby irrevocably waive their rights to object to any such relief.

 

(b)          In the event any Borrower shall commence a case under the Code or is the subject of an involuntary case that results in an order for relief under the Code, Borrowers hereby agree that no injunctive relief against Agent and Lenders shall be sought under Section 105 or any other provisions of the Code by Borrower or any other person or entity claiming through Borrower, nor shall any extension be sought of the stay provided by Section 362 of the Code.

 

(c)          The agreements of Borrowers in this Section 19 are a material inducement to Agent and Lenders to enter into this Agreement and to forbear from exercising their rights and remedies as described in Section 1 above. Borrower acknowledges that they consulted with sophisticated counsel of its own choosing before entering into this Agreement.

 

20.         Appointment of Receiver. Notwithstanding anything set forth in the Loan Documents to the contrary, and in addition to any other rights the Agent and Lenders may have pursuant to the Loan Documents, upon the occurrence and at any time after the Forbearance Expiration Date, the Credit Parties acknowledge and agree that the Agent (with the consent of the Lenders to the extent required by the Credit Agreement) shall have the right, in its (or, as applicable, their) sole and absolute discretion, to the appointment of a trustee, receiver, liquidator or conservator over its collateral, without notice and without regard for the adequacy of the security for the Obligations and without regard for the solvency of the Credit Parties, or any other person, firm or other entity liable for the payment of the Obligations. in connection therewith, the Credit Parties hereby consent to the appointment of a trustee, receiver, liquidator or conservator and covenant and agree not to interfere with or oppose the Agent’s or Lenders’ efforts to appoint a trustee, receiver, liquidator or conservator. This provision shall be specifically enforceable by the Agent and/or Lenders.

 

21.         WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH CREDIT PARTY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE OR THEREAFTER HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE UNDERLYING TRANSACTIONS. THE CREDIT PARTY CERTIFIES THAT NEITHER AGENT, LENDERS NOR ANY OF THEIR REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS OR COUNSEL HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT AGENT OR LENDERS WOULD NOT IN THE EVENT OF ANY SUCH SUIT, SEEK TO ENFORCE THIS WAIVER OF RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY.

22.         Miscellaneous.

 

(a)          Unless Agent's and Lenders' agreement hereunder shall sooner terminate in accordance with the terms hereof, all Obligations shall be automatically due and payable in full on the Forbearance Expiration Date. Credit Parties hereby agree that all payments due to Agent and Lenders under the Note and the Loan Documents shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Note and the Loan Documents, except as amended by this Agreement.

 

(b)          The parties agree that this Agreement amends the Loan Documents to the extent it is inconsistent with any of them. Except as amended hereby, the Loan Documents shall remain in full force and effect and are in all respects hereby ratified and affirmed.

 

(c)          The captions of this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not define or limit any of the terms hereof.

 

(d)          Defined terms used in this Agreement that are not defined in this Agreement shall have the same meanings as set forth in the Credit Agreement.

 

(e)          TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. ANY DEFAULT BY ANY CREDIT PARTY HEREUNDER OR ANY DEFAULT OR FAILURE TO SATISFY ANY TERM, CONDITION, COVENANT OR BENCHMARK SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL ENTITLE LENDER WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE TO TERMINATE ITS FORBEARANCE HEREUNDER; AND AGENT AND LENDERS MAY THEREUPON, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE, EXERCISE SUCH REMEDIES AS MAY THEN BE AVAILABLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, REMEDIES UNDER THE LOAN DOCUMENTS.
