SECTION 3 Other References. All references in the Loan Documents to the “Credit Agreement” shall be deemed to hereinafter refer to the Credit Agreement as amended by this Amendment.

 

 

 

 

SECTION 4 Representations and Warranties. In order to induce the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders to execute this Amendment, each of the Borrower and the REIT hereby represent and warrant to the Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders that:

 

(a) no Default or Event of Default exists;

 

(b) the execution, delivery and performance by Borrower and the REIT of this Amendment have been duly authorized by all necessary organizational action, on the part of such Credit Party and do not require any consent or approval of, or notice to or action by, any Person (including any Governmental Authority);

 

(c) this Amendment and the other Loan Documents constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of each Credit Party hereto or thereto, and are enforceable against each such Credit Party in accordance with their respective terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by (a) an applicable Insolvency Proceeding, (b) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws relating to or affecting generally the enforcement of creditors’ rights and (c) the application of general principles of equity, regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law; and

 

(d) each of the representations and warranties made by each Credit Party in or pursuant to any Loan Document (i) that is qualified by materiality or “material adverse effect” or similar language is true and correct, and (ii) that is not qualified by materiality, is true and correct in all material respects, in each case, on and as of the date hereof, as if made on and as of such date, except to the extent any such representation and warranty expressly relates to an earlier date, in which case such representation and warranty shall have been true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date.

 

SECTION 6 Reaffirmation of Loan Documents.

Except as expressly contemplated hereby, the Credit Agreement shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect and is hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects. The Administrative Agent’s and the Required Lenders’ execution and delivery of, or acceptance of, this Amendment shall not be deemed to create a course of dealing or otherwise create any express or implied duty by the Administrative Agent or any such Lender to provide any other or further waivers or consents under the same or similar circumstances in the future. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed a waiver or consent in respect of (or otherwise affect the Administrative Agent’s or the Lenders’ ability to enforce) any Default or Event of Default not explicitly waived by Section 2 hereof.

(b) No Reliance. Each of the Borrower and the REIT hereby acknowledge and confirm to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders that it is executing this Amendment on the basis of its own investigation and for its own reasons without reliance upon any agreement, representation, understanding or communication by or on behalf of any other Person.

 

(c) Binding Effect. This Amendment shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and to the benefit of their respective successors and assigns permitted by the terms of the Loan Documents. No third party beneficiaries are intended in connection with this Amendment.

 

(d) Governing Law. THIS AMENDMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

 

(e) Complete Agreement. This Amendment, together with the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, contains the entire and exclusive agreement of the parties hereto with reference to the matters discussed herein and therein. This Amendment supersedes all prior drafts and communications with respect hereto and may not be amended except in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.18 of the Credit Agreement.

 

(f) Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Amendment shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under all applicable laws and regulations. If, however, any provision of this Amendment shall be prohibited by or invalid under any such law or regulation in any jurisdiction, it shall, as to such jurisdiction, be deemed modified to conform to the minimum requirements of such law or regulation, or, if for any reason it is not deemed so modified, it shall be ineffective and invalid only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without affecting the remaining provisions of this Amendment, or the validity or effectiveness of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

(g) Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute but one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Amendment by PDF, facsimile or other electronic method of transmission shall be equally as effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Amendment but the failure to deliver an original executed counterpart shall not affect the validity, enforceability and binding effect of this Amendment.

 

(h) Interpretation. This Amendment is the result of negotiations between and has been reviewed by respective counsel to the Borrower, the REIT, the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders and is the product of all parties hereto.
