(a) The Borrower agrees to pay or cause to be paid to the Lenders interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Loans for the period from and including the respective Borrowing Dates for such Loans to but excluding the date on which the Loans are paid in full, in respect of each Interest Period, at a per annum rate equal to the LIBO Rate for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin. The Borrower agrees that such payments will be made in accordance with the provisions of this Article III. Such interest shall continue to accrue after as well as before any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, recuperação judicial, recuperação extrajudicial, liquidation, falência, dissolution, arrangement or winding up or composition or readjustment of debts of the Borrower.
     (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower agrees to pay or cause to be paid to the Lenders interest on any and all overdue amounts outstanding under the Loan Documents at the Default Rate during the existence and continuance of an Event of Default under Section 8.1(a), (d), (f), (g) or (h).
     (c) Accrued interest on the Loans shall be payable on the last day of each applicable Interest Period, on the Maturity Date, immediately upon acceleration and upon any prepayment of principal in accordance with Section 3.3 or Section 3.4, with respect to the principal amount so prepaid; provided that interest payable (whether on the Maturity Date, upon acceleration or otherwise) at the Default Rate shall also be payable from time to time on demand by the Lenders.
     (d) On each Interest Determination Date, the Initial Lender shall determine the LIBO Rate for the relevant Interest Period and shall give notice thereof to the Borrower; it being understood that the Initial Lender’s failure to do so shall not affect the interest rate applicable hereunder. If, on the Interest Determination Date, the Initial Lender is advised by the Reference Bank that deposits in U.S. Dollars are not offered to the Reference Bank in the London interbank market for such Interest Period, the Loans shall bear interest at an interest rate equal to the sum of the Alternate Rate in effect from time to time and the Applicable Margin until such time as the LIBO Rate can be determined.
     (e) Interest on the Loans (i) based upon the LIBO Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and actual days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the relevant Interest Period and (ii) based upon the Alternate Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
     Section 3.3 Optional Prepayments. If permitted under Applicable Law, and subject to Section 4.4 and foreign exchange rules in force at the time of any prepayment, the Borrower shall have the right to prepay the Loans and the Notes, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time after the twelve (12)-month anniversary of the Closing Date, in the case of any partial prepayment in an aggregate minimum amount of U.S.$10,000,000 and an integral multiple of U.S.$1,000,000, in each case subject to the payment of the prepayment fees set forth in the table below (the “Applicable Premium”):

Months 13 to 20
  2.5%
 
Months 21 to 28   1.5%
     
Months 29 to 33   0.5%
; provided that (a) simultaneously with the making of such prepayment, the Borrower shall pay all interest accrued on the amount prepaid to the date of prepayment and any Taxes, fees or other amounts payable hereunder as a result of such prepayment; (b) the Borrower shall give the Initial Lender notice of each such optional prepayment in accordance with Section 3.6 and, upon the date specified in any such notice, the amount to be prepaid as specified in such notice shall become due and payable hereunder; (c) each such prepayment shall be made only on an Interest Payment Date unless the Borrower pays in full, simultaneously with the making of such prepayment, any and all amounts payable in connection therewith pursuant to Section 4.4; (d) the Borrower shall pay to the Lenders, in addition to any other amounts payable hereunder, the Applicable Premium (the determination by the Initial Lender of the amounts payable by the Borrower under this clause (d) shall be final and conclusive and shall be binding on the Borrower, absent manifest error); and (e) each such prepayment shall be applied to prepay the remaining installments of principal under the Loans in the inverse order of maturity. Amounts prepaid hereunder may not be reborrowed hereunder.
     Section 3.4 Mandatory Prepayments.
     (a) Asset Sales. No later than five (5) Business Days following the date of receipt by the Borrower of Net Cash Proceeds from any Asset Sale, the Borrower shall apply 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds from such Asset Sale to prepay the Loans; provided that, if such Asset Sale does not involve the sale of Collateral and the Net Cash Proceeds from such Asset Sale do not, when aggregated with the proceeds of all other Asset Sales carried out on or following the Closing Date, exceed U.S.$10,000,000 or involve the sale of any Collateral, the Borrower shall not be obligated to make such prepayment if and for so long as: (a) prior to the date of receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds, the Borrower delivers to the Initial Lender a Reinvestment Certificate stating that it intends to invest such Net Cash Proceeds in long-term productive assets used in the business of the Borrower; and (b) such Investments are consummated within 180 days after the date of such Asset Sale; provided, further that if all or any portion of such Net Cash Proceeds is not ultimately so reinvested within such 180-day period, any remaining portion of such Net Cash Proceeds shall, within one (1) Business Day of the expiration of such period, be applied to repay the Loans.
     (b) Casualty Proceeds. No later than five (5) Business Days following the date of receipt by the Borrower of Net Cash Proceeds from any Casualty Event relating to Property of the Borrower other than inventory held for (x) sale in the Ordinary Course of Business or (y) maintenance or other operational purposes in the Ordinary Course of Business, the Borrower shall apply 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds from such Casualty Event to prepay the Loans; provided that:
     (i) in the case of a Casualty Event relating to the Brazil Collateral or, to the extent securing the Export Prepayment Facility on a first-lien basis, the Belo Amanhã Farm and Ouro Verde Farm (such collateral, the “Farms”), the Borrower shall be

20


 

permitted either to: (A) apply the Net Cash Proceeds resulting from such Casualty Event received by the Borrower to prepay any Debt under the BNDES Facility or Export Prepayment Facility, as applicable, if and to the extent secured, on a first lien basis, by such Brazil Collateral or Farms, as applicable (it being understood, however, that to the extent such Debt so prepaid is less than the amount of Net Cash Proceeds so received, the Borrower shall not be relieved of its obligation to make a mandatory prepayment pursuant to this Section 3.4(b)), or (B) use such Net Cash Proceeds resulting from such Casualty Event to restore the affected Property (provided, that, prior to the date of receipt by the Borrower of such Net Cash Proceeds, in the case of clause (A), the Borrower has delivered to the Initial Lender, for the benefit of all Lenders, written notice of its intention to make such prepayment and, in the case of clause (B), that the Borrower has delivered to the Initial Lender, for the benefit of all Lenders, a Casualty Certificate stating that it intends to use such Net Cash Proceeds to restore the affected Property), it being understood that, if, within one (1) year after the receipt by the Borrower thereof, any of the Net Cash Proceeds resulting from a Casualty Event relating to the Brazil Collateral or the Farms, as applicable, have not been applied to prepay such Debt under the BNDES Facility or Export Prepayment Facility, as applicable, or used to restore such affected Property, then Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days of the expiration of such one (1) year period, apply such Net Cash Proceeds to prepay the Loans; and
     (ii) in the case of a Casualty Event relating to any Property of the Borrower other than the Collateral or the Farms (such property, “Other Borrower Property”), the Borrower shall be permitted to reinvest such Net Cash Proceeds to restore such affected Other Borrower Property, if and for so long as: (A) such Net Cash Proceeds do not, when aggregated with any other Net Cash Proceeds of Casualty Events relating to Other Borrower Property reinvested pursuant to this clause (ii), exceed U.S.$10,000,000; and (B) the Borrower has delivered to the Initial Lender, for the benefit of all Lenders, a Casualty Certificate prior to the date of receipt by the Borrower of such Net Cash Proceeds stating that it intends to use such Net Cash Proceeds to restore the affected Property (it being understood that, if, within 180 days after the receipt by the Borrower thereof, any of the Net Cash Proceeds resulting from a Casualty Event have not been used to restore such affected Other Borrower Property, then Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days of the expiration of such 180-day period, apply such Net Cash Proceeds to prepay the Loans).
     (c) Any mandatory prepayment as provided in this Section 3.4 shall be made together with accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount so prepaid and all other amounts then payable under this Agreement (including Section 4.4) but without premium or penalty (subject to Section 4.4) and shall be applied to prepay the remaining installments of principal under the Loans in the inverse order of maturity. The Borrower shall give the Initial Lender notice of the proposed date of each such mandatory prepayment provided for in this Section 3.4 as provided in Section 3.6 and, upon the date specified in any such notice, the amount to be prepaid shall become due and payable hereunder.
     Section 3.5 Payments. (a) All payments of principal, interest and other amounts to be made to the Lenders under this Agreement shall be received in U.S. Dollars, in immediately available funds, without deduction, set-off or counterclaim, not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York

21


 

City time) on the date on which such payment shall become due (each such payment received after such time on such due date to be deemed to have been received on the next Business Day).
     (b) If the due date of any payment to any Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document would otherwise fall on a day that is not a Business Day, then (to the extent not otherwise provided for herein) such date shall be extended to the next Business Day and interest (if any is applicable to such payment) shall be payable for any amount so extended for the period of such extension.
     (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3.5(a), upon the occurrence of an Event of Default the Lenders may, in their sole discretion, demand from the Borrower that any amounts owed to them pursuant to this Agreement (including payments of interest and/or principal and any other amounts due under the Loans) be made in Brazil, by delivering written notice to that effect to the Borrower. Any amount to be paid in Brazil pursuant to this Section 3.5(c) shall be paid in the Reais equivalent of the U.S. Dollar amount owed by applying the Real/U.S. Dollar commercial rate, expressed as an amount of Reais per U.S. Dollar, as reported by the Central Bank on the SISBACEN Data System and on its website (which, at the date hereof, is located at http://www.bcb.gov.br) under transaction code PTAX 800 (“Consultas de Câmbio” or Exchange Rate Enquiries), Option 5, “Venda” (“Cotações para Contabilidade” or Rates for Accounting Purposes) (such rate, the “BRL Ptax”) one (1) Business Day prior to any date on which payment is to be made hereunder.
     (d) Except to the extent otherwise provided herein, to the extent that, at any time, there is more than one Lender hereunder, each payment or prepayment of principal or interest on the Loans shall be made pro rata in accordance with the respective amounts of principal or interest on the Loans then due and payable to each Lender.

Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the prepayment date (which date shall be a Business Day).
     Section 3.7 Debt Service Reserve Account.
     (a) As collateral security for the prompt payment in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of the Obligations, the Borrower hereby pledges and grants to the Initial Lender, for the benefit of the Lenders, a continuing first priority security interest in all of its respective right, title and interest in, to and under the Debt Service Reserve Account and any and all Investment Property, Financial Assets or other Property (including uninvested funds) from time to time credited thereto or deposited or carried therein, any and all investments made with funds therein and any and all Proceeds of any of the foregoing (with the terms “Investment Property,” “Financial Assets” and “Proceeds,” when used herein and

The ability of the Initial Lender to apply such amounts shall be in addition to any of the rights and remedies under this Agreement or any other Loan Document. Payments from the Debt Service Reserve Account shall be deemed to be made on behalf of the Borrower;
     (iii) the Borrower shall not have any right to give instructions with respect to the Debt Service Reserve Account prior to the Maturity Date (except as provided in Section 3.7(b)(v));
     (iv) from and after one (1) Business Day after the Closing Date, the Borrower shall at all times be required to cause the balance of the Debt Service Reserve Account to equal or exceed the amount in U.S. Dollars equal to the Minimum Balance; provided that if, at any time, the balance of the Debt Service Reserve Account is less than the Minimum Balance (any such shortfall, the “Minimum Balance Shortfall”), then the Borrower shall not later than ten (10) calendar days thereafter cause to be deposited into the Debt Service Reserve Account an amount equal to the Minimum Balance Shortfall;
     (v) the balance of the Debt Service Reserve Account shall be invested in such U.S. Cash Equivalent Investments as the Borrower may designate from time to time; provided that during the continuance of any Default or Event of Default, the balance of the Debt Service Reserve Account shall be invested in such U.S. Cash Equivalent Investments as the Initial Lender (at the direction of the Majority Lenders) may from time to time designate; and

     Section 3.8 Set-Off; Sharing of Payments. (a) Without limiting any of the obligations of the Borrower or the Guarantor or the rights of the Lenders hereunder or under any other Loan Document, if the Borrower or the Guarantor shall fail to pay when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) any amount payable by it hereunder or under any other Loan Document, then (to the extent not in violation of Applicable Law) the Lenders are hereby

23


 

authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, without prior notice to the Borrower or the Guarantor (which notice is expressly waived by it to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law), to set-off and appropriate and apply against such amount any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final, in any currency, matured or unmatured) at any time held or any other obligations owing by such Lender or any Subsidiary, Affiliate, branch or agency thereof to or for the credit or account of the Borrower or the Guarantor, as applicable. Such Lender shall promptly provide notice to the Borrower or the Guarantor, as applicable, of such set-off; provided, that failure by such Lender to provide such notice to the Borrower or the Guarantor, as applicable, shall not give the Borrower or the Guarantor, as applicable, any cause of action or right to damages or affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of such Lender under this Section 3.8 are in addition to any other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, any other rights of set-off) that such Lender may have
     (b) If any other Lender shall obtain from the Borrower or the Guarantor payment of any principal of or interest on the Loans, or payment of any other amount under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, through the exercise of any right of set-off, banker’s lien, counterclaim or similar right or for any other reason, and, as a result of such payment, such Lender shall have received a percentage of the principal of or interest on the Loans or such other amounts then due under the Loan Documents in excess of such Lender’s share thereof, then it shall promptly notify the Initial Lender and purchase from the applicable other Lenders participations in (or, if and to the extent specified by any such other Lender, direct interests in) the Loans or such other amounts, respectively, owing to such other Lender (or in interest due thereon, as the case may be) in such amounts, and make such other adjustments from time to time, as shall be equitable, to the end that all the applicable Lenders shall share the benefit of such excess payment (net of any expenses that may be incurred by such Lender in obtaining or preserving such excess payment) pro rata in accordance with the unpaid principal of and/or interest on the Loans or such other amounts, respectively, owing to each Lender under the Loan Documents. To such end, each such Lender shall make appropriate adjustments among themselves (by the resale of participations sold or otherwise) if such payment is rescinded or must otherwise be restored.
     (c) Nothing contained in this Section 3.8 shall require any Lender to exercise any such right or shall affect the right of any Lender to exercise, and retain the benefits of exercising, any such right with respect to any other Debt or obligation of the Borrower or the Guarantor.
ARTICLE IV
YIELD PROTECTION, ETC.
     Section 4.1 Additional Costs. (a) If the adoption or effectiveness of any Applicable Law, or any change in any Applicable Law, or any change in the interpretation, administration or application thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation, administration or application thereof, or compliance by any Lender (or its Applicable Lending Office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority (in each case above, at any time on or after the date hereof), shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including any such requirement imposed by the Board of Governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve System), special deposit, insurance assessment or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended

24


 

by, any Lender (or its Applicable Lending Office) or shall impose upon any Lender (or its Applicable Lending Office) or the London interbank market any other condition affecting its obligation to make or maintain its Loans, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender (or its Applicable Lending Office) of making or maintaining its Loans, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender (or its Applicable Lending Office) under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document (other than Taxes), then the Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount(s) as will compensate such Lender (or its Applicable Lending Office) for such increased cost or reduction.
     (b) If any Lender shall have determined that the adoption or effectiveness of any Applicable Law regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation, administration or application thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation, administration or application thereof, or compliance by it (or its Applicable Lending Office) with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority (in each case above, at any time on or after the date hereof), has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on capital of such Lender (or its parent or Applicable Lending Office) as a consequence of such Lender’s obligations hereunder or its Loans to a level below that which such Lender (or its parent or Applicable Lending Office) could have achieved but for such adoption, change, request or directive, then upon written demand by such Lender, the Borrower, from time to time, shall pay to such Lender such additional amount as will compensate such Lender (or its parent or Applicable Lending Office, as the case may be) for such reduction.
     (c) Any Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower of any event of which it has knowledge that will entitle such Lender to compensation pursuant to this Section 4.1 and shall provide the Borrower with reasonable detail as to the basis of such Lender’s claim to compensation hereunder and method for calculating such compensation. Before giving any such notice, such Lender shall designate a different Applicable Lending Office if such designation: (i) will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and (ii) will not, in the good faith judgment of such Lender, be disadvantageous to such Lender. A notice of a Lender claiming compensation under this Section 4.1 and providing the information set forth above within the time set forth above shall be conclusive evidence of its entitlement to such compensation and shall be binding upon the Borrower in the absence of manifest error and such amounts shall be payable by the Borrower promptly (and, in any event, within five (5) Business Days) after receipt of such notice (or, if such compensation relates to future dates, by no later than the applicable dates indicated in such notice).
     Section 4.2 Substitute Basis. If, on or before the first day of any Interest Period (an “Affected Interest Period”), the Majority Lenders determine that the LIBO Rate for such Affected Interest Period will not be adequate to cover the cost to Lenders of making or maintaining Loans for such Affected Interest Period, then each affected Lender shall determine (and shall certify from time to time in a certificate delivered by such Lender to the Initial Lender and the Borrower setting forth in reasonable detail the basis of the computation of such amount), which determination shall be made in a commercially reasonable manner, the substitute rate basis reflecting the cost to such Lender of funding its Loans for the Affected Interest Period, and such substitute rate basis (the “Substitute Rate”) shall be binding upon the Borrower and shall apply in lieu of the LIBO Rate for such Interest Period in the absence of manifest error and the

25


 

Loans shall bear interest from the first day of the Affected Interest Period at the Substitute Rate plus the Applicable Margin.
     Section 4.3 Illegality. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the adoption or effectiveness of or any change in any Applicable Law or in the interpretation, administration or application thereof by any Governmental Authority (in each case, at any time on or after the date hereof) shall make it (or be asserted by it to be) unlawful for any Lender or its Applicable Lending Office to honor its obligation to make or maintain its Loans hereunder (and, in the opinion of such Lender, the designation of a different Applicable Lending Office would either not avoid such unlawfulness or would be disadvantageous to such Lender), then such Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower, following which notice, if such Applicable Law shall so mandate, such Lender’s Loans shall be prepaid by the Borrower, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon and all other amounts payable to such Lender by the Borrower under the Loan Documents, on or before such date as shall be mandated by such Applicable Law; provided that if it is lawful for such Lender to maintain its Loans until the Interest Payment Date, then such payment shall be made on the Interest Payment Date. Any such funds so prepaid may not be reborrowed.
     Section 4.4 Funding Losses. The Borrower shall pay to any Lender, upon the request of such Lender, such amount as shall be sufficient (in the opinion of such Lender) to compensate such Lender for any loss, cost or expense excluding the loss of any anticipated profits, but including any such loss, cost or expense arising from the liquidation or redeployment of funds obtained by such Lender to fund its Loans that bear interest based upon the LIBO Rate, or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained that such Lender determines is attributable to:
     (a) any optional or mandatory prepayment (including as a result of an acceleration due to an Event of Default pursuant to Section 8.1) of such Loans for any reason on a date other than the last day of an Interest Period or the Maturity Date;
     (b) the failure by the Borrower to borrow the Loans from the Initial Lender for any reason (including the failure of any of the conditions precedent specified in Article V to be satisfied or waived) on the Closing Date or the Second Borrowing Date; or
     (c) any failure to prepay such Loans in accordance with a notice of prepayment under Section 3.3 or Section 3.4, as applicable.
Any Lender shall furnish to the Borrower a notice setting forth the basis and amount of each request by such Lender for compensation under this Section 4.4, which notice shall provide reasonable detail as to the calculation of such loss, cost or expense, and shall be conclusive evidence of its entitlement to such compensation and shall be binding upon the Borrower in the absence of manifest error and such amounts shall be payable by the Borrower promptly (and, in any event, within five (5) Business Days) after receipt of such notice (or, if such compensation relates to future dates, by no later than the applicable dates indicated in such notice).
     Section 4.5 Taxes.
     (a) Unless otherwise required by Applicable Law, all payments by or at the direction of the Borrower on account of the principal of and interest on the Loans, and fees and all other

26


 

amounts payable under the Loan Documents by the Borrower to or for the account of any Lender, including amounts payable under clauses (b) and (c), shall be made free and clear of and without reduction or liability for or on account of any Indemnified Taxes.
     (b) The Borrower shall indemnify each Lender against, and reimburse each Lender on demand for, any Indemnified Taxes (including any Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 4.5) paid by such Lender and any loss, liability, claim or expense, including interest, penalties and legal fees, arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally asserted; provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be required to indemnify any such amounts payable to any Lender to the extent attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the requirements of clause (e) below. Such indemnification shall be made within thirty (30) days after the date any Lender provides certification setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for the payment of such Indemnified Taxes and the amount thereof.
     (c) If any Person (including the Borrower) making a payment under the Loan Documents on behalf of the Borrower shall be required by Applicable Law or otherwise to deduct or withhold any Taxes from any amounts payable to any Lender, under or in respect of the Loans or Loan Documents, then (i) such Person shall deduct or withhold and pay such Taxes in accordance with such Applicable Law or otherwise and (ii) if such Taxes are Indemnified Taxes, the Borrower shall promptly pay the Lender entitled to such amount such additional amounts as may be required, after the deduction or withholding of such Indemnified Taxes (including any Indemnified Taxes on any such additional amounts), to enable such Lender to receive on the due date therefor an amount equal to the full amount stated to be payable to such Lender under the Loan Documents; provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be required to increase any such amounts payable to any Lender to the extent attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the requirements of clause (e) of this Section 4.5 below.
     (d) Upon the payment of Indemnified Taxes to any Governmental Authority required under this Section 4.5, the Borrower shall furnish to the applicable Lender, within thirty (30) days after the date that such payment is made, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof or, if such original or copy of a receipt is not available from the relevant taxing authority, other documentation of payment reasonably satisfactory to such Lender.
     (e) Each Lender that is entitled under Applicable Law to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax with respect to any payments made by (or on behalf of) the Borrower pursuant to the Loan Documents agrees (or shall be deemed to have agreed) to comply with any certification, identification, information, documentation or other reporting requirement if: (i) such compliance is required by Applicable Law as a precondition to such exemption or reduction and (ii) at least thirty (30) days before the first date with respect to which the Borrower shall apply this paragraph with respect to such requirement, the Borrower shall have notified the relevant Lender that such Lender will be required to comply with such requirement; provided that compliance with any such requirement shall not apply to the extent that it would require disclosure by any Lender of information that such Lender in good faith considers to be confidential or otherwise materially disadvantageous to disclose, would expose such Lender to any unindemnified cost, risk or expense or be disadvantageous to it.

27


 

     (f) Should a Lender become subject to Indemnified Taxes and not be entitled to receive additional amounts or to be indemnified because of its failure to comply with the requirements of paragraph (e) of this Section 4.5, the Borrower shall take such steps as such Lender shall reasonably request at the expense of such Lender to assist such Lender to recover such Indemnified Taxes.
     (g) If the Borrower reasonably determines that any Indemnified Taxes as to which it made a payment of additional amounts to a Lender pursuant to clause (c) were erroneously assessed, then the Borrower may notify such Lender of its determination thereof (along with a detailed description of the reason why the Borrower believes that such Indemnified Taxes were erroneously assessed) and request that such Lender refund to the Borrower the amount of such additional amounts. Upon its receipt of any such notice, and if such Lender determines (in good faith) that the Borrower’s determination with respect to such matter is correct, then such Lender shall (at the request and expense of the Borrower) reasonably cooperate with the Borrower in seeking a refund from the appropriate Governmental Authority of any such Indemnified Taxes erroneously assessed by, and paid to, such Governmental Authority.
     (h) The Borrower agrees to pay all present and future stamp, transfer (except for transfer taxes, if any, imposed on an assignment pursuant to Section 9.8 of this Agreement), court or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies and any related interest or penalties incidental thereto imposed by any taxing authority that arise from any payment made by (or on behalf of) the Borrower under the Loan Documents, from the execution, delivery, enforcement or registration of the Loan Documents or from any filing, registration or recording contemplated by the Loan Documents, or otherwise in connection with the Loan Documents.
     (i) If any Lender receives any refund of any Indemnified Taxes from the authority to which such Indemnified Taxes were paid which it determines in its reasonable discretion is attributable to Indemnified Taxes for which the Borrower has paid any additional amounts or indemnified amounts pursuant to this Section 4.5, then such Lender shall repay such refund with any interest received thereto, net of all out-of-pocket expenses of such Lender; provided, however, that the Borrower agrees to promptly return such refund or any portion thereof (plus penalties, interest or other charges) upon notice from such Lender that such refund or any portion thereof is required to be repaid to the relevant Governmental Authority. No Lender shall be obligated to disclose its tax return or any other information regarding its tax affairs or computations to the Borrower in connection with this clause (i) or any other provision of this Section 4.5.

     Section 9.4 Expenses; Indemnity. (a) The Borrower hereby agrees to pay or reimburse from time to time upon request: (i) the reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses, charges and disbursements of the Lenders and the Advisors (including fees of the Advisors) in connection with the preparation of the Loan Documents including, without limitation, all collateral review, search, filing, recording fees, printing, reproduction, document production and delivery, communication, travel and due diligence costs incurred in connection with: (x) the negotiation, preparation, review, translation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the documents and instruments prepared in connection herewith or in anticipation hereof and (y) the negotiation or preparation of any modification, amendment, supplement or waiver of any of the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (whether or not consummated), (ii) all reasonable and documented fees of and out of pocket expenses incurred by any Advisor in connection with the preparation or implementation of the Closing (including, without limitation, the perfection of the Collateral) and (iii) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including the reasonable fees and expenses of legal counsel) of the Lenders in connection with (x) the administration of this Agreement and the Loan Documents, the enforcement of the Collateral, any enforcement or collection proceedings resulting from the occurrence of an Event of Default, whether in any action, suit or litigation, or any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceedings affecting creditors’ rights generally and (y) the negotiation or preparation of any modification, amendment, supplement or waiver of any of the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (whether or not consummated); provided that, with respect to the expenses, charges and disbursements expenses referred to in clause (i)(x) (excluding any fees, charges, disbursements and expenses of the Advisors), the

54


 

Initial Lender agrees that such expenses, charges and disbursements under this Agreement and the Bridge Facility shall not exceed U.S.$50,000 in the aggregate.
     (b) The Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify each Lender, each of its Affiliates and its and their respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, attorneys and agents (each an “indemnified person”) from, and hold each of them harmless against, any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, claims, damages, disbursements or expenses (including, without limitation, any Environmental Claim) incurred by any of them as a result of, or arising out of, or in any way related to, or by reason of any investigation, litigation, arbitration or other proceeding (whether or not the indemnified person is a party thereto) (including any threatened investigation, litigation, arbitration or other proceeding) relating to the Loan Documents and/or the use or proposed use by the Borrower of the proceeds of the Loans or the consummation of any transactions contemplated herein or in any other Loan Document, including the reasonable and documented fees and disbursements of counsel incurred in connection with any such investigation, litigation or other proceedings (but excluding any such losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses incurred with respect to Taxes (for which a separate indemnity is provided in Section 4.5(b)) or by reason of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Person to be indemnified, as determined by a final, nonappealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction). In no event shall the Borrower or any Lender be liable to any Person for any punitive or consequential damages in connection with any of the Loan Documents, except that the Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders for any punitive or consequential damages which are incurred by any Lender in connection with any third-party judgment imposed on such Lender in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence.
     (c) To the extent that any undertaking in clause (b) may be unenforceable if it would violate any Applicable Law or public policy, the Borrower shall contribute the maximum portion that it is permitted to pay and satisfy under Applicable Law to the payment and satisfaction of such undertaking. Borrower agrees that if any indemnification sought by an indemnified person pursuant to this Agreement is held by a court to be unavailable for any reason, Borrower will contribute to the losses, claims, damages, liabilities, awards, costs and expenses for which such indemnification is held unavailable (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits to Borrower and its subsidiaries, affiliates and stockholders, on the one hand, and such indemnified person, on the other hand, in connection with the Loans subject to the limitation that in any event the aggregate contribution by any indemnified person to all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, awards, costs and expenses with respect to which contribution is available hereunder will not exceed the amount of fees actually received by such indemnified person pursuant to this Agreement or (ii) if (but only if) the allocation provided for in clause (i) above is for any reason held unenforceable, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but also the relative fault of Borrower and its subsidiaries, affiliates and stockholders on the one hand, and such indemnified person, on the other hand, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. It is hereby agreed that the relative benefits to Borrower and its subsidiaries, affiliates and stockholders, on the one hand, and an indemnified person, on the other hand, with respect to this Agreement shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as (x) the total proceeds paid to or proposed to be paid to Borrower under the Loans bears to (y) the amount of fees actually paid to such indemnified person in connection with the Loans.

55


 

     (d) All amounts payable or indemnifiable under this Article IX shall be immediately due and payable on demand. All amounts paid and costs incurred by any Lender in respect to any matter payable or indemnifiable under this Section 9.4 shall, if not so paid or reimbursed by the Borrower before the date that is ten (10) Business Days after the date on which the Borrower was requested in writing to make such payment, be an Event of Default and bear interest from the date of such request at the Default Rate. The provisions of, and the obligations of the Borrower under, this Section 9.4 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
     Section 9.5 Benefit of Agreement. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto; provided that, except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, the Borrower may not assign or transfer any of their rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Lenders (and any attempted assignment or transfer by the Borrower without such prior written consent shall be null and void ab initio).
     Section 9.6 Amendments, Etc. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, no amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement and (except as specifically provided therein) any other Loan Document, nor consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom, shall in any event become effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Borrower and the Majority Lenders (or the Initial Lender upon written instruction of the Majority Lenders); provided that:
     (a) no amendment, supplement or waiver, unless by an instrument signed by all Lenders shall (i) extend the date fixed (or the currency) for the payment of principal of or interest on any Loan or any fee payable to the Lenders under the Loan Documents, (ii) reduce the amount of any payment of principal or any amount payable by the Borrower under any Loan Document or (iii) reduce the rate at which interest is payable thereon or any fee is payable to the Lenders under the Loan Documents; and

     Section 9.8 Assignments and Participations.
     (a) The Lenders may, in accordance with Applicable Law and this Section 9.8, assign their Loans or any portion thereof to any other Person by execution of an Assignment Agreement; provided that:
     (i) any such partial assignment (other than to another Lender) shall be in an amount at least equal to U.S.$1,000,000 or an integral multiple of U.S.$1,000,000 in excess thereof (or, if less, all of such Lender’s remaining Loans);
     (ii) upon each such assignment, the assignor and assignee shall deliver a copy of an Assignment Agreement to the Borrower; and
     (iii) the Initial Lender may not assign its obligations under this Agreement to make the Loans required to be made by it hereunder, it being understood however that, the Initial Lender shall be permitted to assign all or any portion of the Loans made on the Closing Date, from and after the Closing Date, at any time, subject to compliance with this Section 9.8.
     (b) Upon the effective date of the assignment to be effected by an Assignment Agreement, the assignee shall have, to the extent of such assignment, the obligations, rights and benefits of a Lender hereunder holding the Loan (or portion thereof) assigned to it and specified in such Assignment Agreement (in addition to the Loan, if any, theretofore held by such assignee) and the assigning Lender shall, to the extent of such assignment of its Loan, be released from the Loan (or portion thereof) so assigned; provided that, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at the time of such assignment, such assignee shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Article IV than the assignor would have been able to receive as of the time of the assignment to the assignee, except if such assignment is made with the Borrower’s prior written consent or to the extent such greater payment results from a change in law following the time of such assignment. Upon its receipt of an Assignment Agreement executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the Borrower shall promptly accept such Assignment Agreement and (no later than two (2) Business Days following receipt thereof) give notice of such acceptance to the assigning Lender, its assignee and the Guarantor. Any assignment in contravention of the provisions of this Section 9.8 shall be null and void ab initio.
     (c) Upon the request of the assigning Lender and presentment of its existing Note(s), the Borrower shall execute and deliver, in any event within seven (7) Business Days after its receipt of such notice, at the Borrower’s expense, one (1) or more new Notes (as requested by the holder thereof) in exchange therefor, in an aggregate principal amount equal to the principal amount of the surrendered Note(s). Each such new Note shall be dated the effective date of the Assignment Agreement and in such principal amount and be payable to such Person as such holder may request and shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit A. Each such new Note shall be dated and bear interest from the date to which interest shall have been paid on the relevant surrendered Note(s) or dated the date of the relevant surrendered Note(s) if no interest shall have been paid thereon. Notes shall not be issued or transferred in denominations of less than U.S.$1,000,000; provided that if necessary to enable the registration of transfer by a holder of its entire holding of Notes, one (1) Note may be issued in a denomination of less than U.S.$1,000,000.

57


 

     (d) If any Lender assigns all or a part of its Loans and its rights and obligations hereunder to any other Person pursuant to the provisions hereof, the assigning Lender shall be relieved of its obligations hereunder with respect to the assigned Loan (or portion thereof) and Notes, and the assignee shall be a party hereto and, to the extent that Loans and Notes and such other rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned, shall acquire such Loan and Note and other rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, and this Agreement shall be deemed to be amended to the extent necessary to reflect the transfer and assignment of such rights and obligations and the addition of such assignee, and any reference to the assigning Lender in this Agreement, the other Loan Documents or the Notes of such Lender shall thereafter refer to such Lender and to such assignee to the extent of their respective interests.
     (e) Upon receipt by the Borrower of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the ownership of and the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any Notes, and
     (i) in the case of loss, theft or destruction, of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to each of the Borrower and the Lenders; or
     (ii) in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation thereof,
the Borrower, at its own expense, shall execute and deliver, in lieu thereof, a new Note, dated and bearing interest from the date to which interest shall have been paid on such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Notes or dated the date of such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Note if no interest shall have been paid thereon.
     (f) Each Lender may, in accordance with Applicable Law, without the consent of any Person, sell or agree to sell to one (1) or more other Persons (each a “Participant”) a participation in all or a portion of the Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Loans owing to it and the Notes held by it); provided that such Participant shall not have any rights or obligations under this Agreement (the Participant’s rights against such Lender in respect of such participation to be those set forth in the agreements executed by such Lender in favor of the Participant). All amounts payable to such Lender under Article IV in respect of the Loans held by it or its Notes, shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold or agreed to sell any participation in such Loan or Notes and as if such Lender were funding such Loans in the same way that it is funding the portion of such Loans in which no participations have been sold (or if all of its Loans have been so participated, in the same way that it was funding such Loans at the time of such participation).
     (g) In addition to the assignments and participations permitted under the foregoing provisions of this Section 9.8, any Lender may (without notice or consent of any other Person and without payment of any fee) assign and pledge all or any portion of its Loans and Notes to any U.S. Federal Reserve Bank as collateral security pursuant to Regulation A of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve System and any operating circular issued by such Federal Reserve Bank. No such assignment shall release the assigning Lender from its obligations hereunder.
     (h) Each Lender may, in connection with any assignment or participation or proposed assignment or participation pursuant to this Section 9.8, disclose to the assignee or participant or

58


 

proposed assignee or participant any information relating to the Borrower or the Guarantor furnished to such Lender by or on behalf of the Borrower or the Guarantor; provided that before any such disclosure, the assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant shall agree to preserve the confidentiality of any Confidential Information relating to the Borrower received by it from such Lender on the terms set forth in Section 9.21.
     (i) Subject to clause (f) above, in the event that the Initial Lender syndicates all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of the Loans at the time owing to it) by assignment, the Initial Lender agrees to serve as administrative agent such that the Borrower will not be obligated to communicate with such assignees but instead can provide all information, notices and other communications to the Initial Lender only; provided, that the Borrower shall execute and deliver any amendments to the Loan Documents or any other documents reasonably necessary or appropriate to give effect to such syndication and to provide for the administration of this Agreement after giving effect thereto, including standard administrative agent indemnifications.
     Section 9.9 Survival. The obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement shall survive the repayment of the Loan. In addition, each representation and warranty made, or deemed to be made, by the Borrower herein or pursuant hereto shall survive the making of such representation and warranty.

     Section 9.11 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered shall be an original, but all of which shall together constitute one (1) and the same instrument, and any of the parties hereto may execute this Agreement by signing any such counterpart.
     Section 9.12 Governing Law. Except for the Security Documents (other than the Control Agreement), the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, this Agreement) shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of the State of New York, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction). For the purposes of Article 9, paragraph 2, of Brazilian Decree-Law No. 4,657 dated September 4, 1942, as amended, and for no other purpose or reason whatsoever, the transactions contemplated by this Agreement have been proposed by the Initial Lender.
     Section 9.13 Jurisdiction, Service of Process and Venue.
     (a) EXCEPT FOR LEGAL ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS IN RELATION TO THE BRAZIL MORTGAGE, WHICH SHALL BE SUBMITTED BY ANY PARTY HERETO TO A COMPETENT COURT IN BRAZIL, ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING BY OR AGAINST ANY PARTY HERETO OR WITH RESPECT TO OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT MAY BE BROUGHT IN OR REMOVED TO THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF NEW YORK, OR OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE SOUTHERN

59


 

DISTRICT OF NEW YORK (IN EACH CASE SITTING IN THE BOROUGH OF MANHATTAN). BY EXECUTION AND DELIVERY OF THIS AGREEMENT, EACH PARTY ACCEPTS, FOR ITSELF AND IN RESPECT OF ITS PROPERTY, GENERALLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY, THE JURISDICTION OF THE AFORESAID COURTS (AND COURTS OF APPEALS THEREFROM) FOR LEGAL ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, WHICH JURISDICTION SHALL BE EXCLUSIVE IN THE CASE OF ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING BY THE BORROWER (OTHER THAN COUNTERCLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO ANY LEGAL ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS BROUGHT AGAINST THE BORROWER IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION). THE BORROWER IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE APPOINTMENT OF THE PROCESS AGENT (AS DEFINED BELOW) AS ITS AGENT TO RECEIVE SERVICE OF PROCESS (WITH RESPECT TO ALL OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS AND ALL OTHER RELATED AGREEMENTS TO WHICH IT IS A PARTY) IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK.
     (b) The Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints CT Corporation (the “Process Agent”), with an office on the date hereof at 111 Eighth Avenue, 13th Floor, New York, New York 10011, as its agent and true and lawful attorney-in-fact in its name, place and stead to accept on its behalf service of copies of the summons and complaint and any other process that may be served in any such suit, action or proceeding brought in the State of New York, and agrees that the failure of the Process Agent to give any notice of any such service of process to it shall not impair or affect the validity of such service or, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, the enforcement of any judgment based thereon. Such appointment shall be irrevocable until the final payment of all amounts payable under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, except that if for any reason the Process Agent appointed hereby ceases to be able to act as such, then the Borrower shall, by an instrument reasonably satisfactory to the Lenders, appoint another Person in the Borough of Manhattan as such Process Agent subject to the approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) of the Lenders. The Borrower covenants and agrees that it shall take any and all reasonable action, including the execution and filing of any and all documents, that may be necessary to continue the designation of the Process Agent pursuant to this paragraph in full force and effect and to cause the Process Agent to act as such.
     (c) Nothing herein shall in any way be deemed to limit the ability of any Lender to serve any process or summons in any manner permitted by Applicable Law or to obtain jurisdiction over any Person in such other jurisdictions, including but not limited to Brazil, and in such manner, as may be permitted by Applicable Law.
     (d) Each party hereto hereby irrevocably waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents brought in or removed to New York City (and courts of appeals therefrom) and hereby further irrevocably waives any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. A final judgment (in respect of which time for all appeals has elapsed) in any such suit, action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced by suit upon judgment in any court in any jurisdiction to which the applicable Person is or may be subject.
     (e) The Borrower irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, any claim that any action or proceeding commenced against it relating in any way to this

60


 

Agreement and/or any of the other Loan Document(s) should be dismissed or stayed by reason, or pending the resolution, of any action or proceeding commenced by the Borrower relating in any way to this Agreement and/or the other Loan Documents, whether or not commenced earlier. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, the Borrower shall take all measures necessary for any such action or proceeding commenced against it to proceed to judgment before the entry of judgment in any such action or proceeding commenced by the Borrower.
     Section 9.14 Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES ITS RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED THEREBY, IN ANY ACTION, LITIGATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING OF ANY TYPE BROUGHT BY ANY OF THE PARTIES AGAINST ANY OTHER PARTY OR ANY OTHER PERSON, WHETHER WITH RESPECT TO CONTRACT CLAIMS, TORT CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO AGREES THAT ANY SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE TRIED IN A COURT TRIAL WITHOUT A JURY. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE PARTIES FURTHER AGREE THAT THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IS WAIVED BY OPERATION OF THIS SECTION AS TO ANY ACTION, COUNTERCLAIM OR OTHER PROCEEDING THAT SEEKS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, TO CHALLENGE THE VALIDITY OR ENFORCEABILITY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY PROVISION THEREOF. THE AGREEMENT OF EACH PARTY HERETO TO THIS PROVISION IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR EACH OF THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. THIS WAIVER IS IRREVOCABLE, MEANING THAT IT MAY NOT BE MODIFIED EITHER ORALLY OR IN WRITING (OTHER THAN BY A MUTUAL WRITTEN WAIVER SPECIFICALLY REFERRING TO THIS SECTION 9.14 AND EXECUTED BY EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO THAT IS A PARTY IN ANY SUCH ACTION, LITIGATION OR PROCEEDING), AND THIS WAIVER SHALL APPLY TO ANY SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENTS, RENEWALS, SUPPLEMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS HERETO OR ANY OF THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS OR TO ANY OTHER DOCUMENTS OR AGREEMENTS RELATING TO THE LOANS MADE HEREUNDER, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT WAIVED IN WRITING AS SET FORTH ABOVE.

     Section 9.15 Waiver of Immunity. To the extent that the Borrower may be or become entitled to claim for itself or its Property any immunity on the ground of sovereignty or the like from suit, court jurisdiction, attachment before judgment, attachment in aid of execution of a judgment or execution of a judgment, and to the extent that in any such jurisdiction there may be attributed such an immunity (whether or not claimed), it hereby irrevocably agrees not to claim and hereby irrevocably waives such immunity with respect to its obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
     Section 9.16 Judgment Currency. This is an international loan transaction in which the specification of U.S. Dollars and payment in New York City is of the essence, and the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to each Lender to make payment in U.S. Dollars shall not be discharged or satisfied by any tender or recovery pursuant to any judgment expressed in or converted into any other currency or in another place

61


 

except to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency the payee may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase U.S. Dollars in the amount originally due to the payee with the Judgment Currency. If, for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder in U.S. Dollars into another currency (in this Section called the “Judgment Currency”), then the rate of exchange that shall be applied shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the payee could purchase such U.S. Dollars at New York, New York with the Judgment Currency on the Business Day preceding the day on which such judgment is rendered. The obligations of the Borrower in respect of any such sum due from it to the payee hereunder (in this Section called an “Entitled Person”) shall, notwithstanding the rate of exchange actually applied in rendering such judgment, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by such Entitled Person of any sum adjudged to be due hereunder in the Judgment Currency such Entitled Person may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase and transfer U.S. Dollars to New York City with the amount of the Judgment Currency so adjudged to be due; and the Borrower hereby, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, agrees to indemnify such Entitled Person against, and to pay such Entitled Person on demand, in U.S. Dollars, the amount (if any) by which the sum originally due to such Entitled Person in U.S. Dollars hereunder exceeds the amount of the U.S. Dollars so purchased and transferred. If the amount of U.S. Dollars so purchased and transferred to the Entitled Person exceeds the amount originally due to such Entitled Person, then such Entitled Person shall transfer, or caused to be transferred, to the Borrower the amount of such excess.
     Section 9.17 Use of English Language. This Agreement has been negotiated and executed in the English language. Except as specified otherwise herein all certificates, reports, notices and other documents and communications given or delivered pursuant to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including any modifications or supplements hereto or thereto) shall be in the English language, or accompanied by an English translation thereof.
     Section 9.18 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents constitute the entire agreement among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements and understandings of such Persons, verbal or written, relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof.
     Section 9.19 Severability. The illegality or unenforceability in any jurisdiction of any provision hereof or of any document required hereunder shall not in any way affect or impair the legality or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement or such other document in such jurisdiction or such provision in any other jurisdiction.

The Borrower acknowledges that no Lender has any fiduciary relationship with, or fiduciary duty to, the Borrower arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any other of the Loan Documents. The Borrower recognizes that each Lender and its respective Affiliates may have economic interests that conflict with those of the Borrower, its shareholders and/or its Affiliates. The Borrower agrees that the relationship between the Lenders, on the one hand, and the Borrower, on the other, in connection herewith or therewith is solely that of debtor and creditor and that nothing in the Loan Documents or otherwise shall be deemed to create an advisory, fiduciary or agency relationship or fiduciary or other implied duty between any Lender, on the one hand, and the

62


 

Borrower, its shareholders or its Affiliates, on the other.

     The Borrower acknowledges and agrees that (a) the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents (including the exercise of rights and remedies hereunder and thereunder) are arm’s-length commercial transactions between the Lenders, on the one hand, and the Borrower, on the other and (b) in connection therewith and with the negotiation of the Loan Documents, (i) no Lender has assumed an advisory or fiduciary responsibility in favor of the Borrower, its shareholders or its Affiliates with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby (or the exercise of rights or remedies with respect thereto) or the negotiation of the Loan Documents (irrespective of whether any Lender has advised, is currently advising or will advise the Borrower, its shareholders or its Affiliates on other matters) or any other obligation to the Borrower except the obligations expressly set forth in the Loan Documents and (ii) each Lender is acting solely as principal and not as the agent or fiduciary of the Borrower, its management, shareholders, creditors or any other Person. The Borrower acknowledges and agrees that it has consulted its own legal and financial advisors to the extent it deemed appropriate and that it is responsible for making its own independent judgment with respect to such transactions the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents. The Borrower agrees that it will not claim that the Lenders have rendered advisory services of any nature or respect, or owes a fiduciary or similar duty to the Borrower, in connection with such transaction or the process leading thereto. No Lender shall in any way be responsible or liable for the debts, losses, obligations or duties of the Borrower or any other Person other than itself.
     Section 9.21 Confidentiality. The Lenders agree to hold all Confidential Information obtained pursuant to the Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby in accordance with their customary procedures for handling such information of this nature and in accordance with safe and sound banking practices; provided that nothing herein shall prevent the Lenders from disclosing such information: (a) to any Affiliate of the Lenders and to their respective advisors or any other Lender solely in connection with the Loan Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby, (b) upon the order of any court or administrative agency or otherwise to the extent required by Applicable Law, (c) to bank examiners or upon the request or demand of any other regulatory agency or authority, (d) that had been publicly disclosed other than as a result of a disclosure by the Lenders prohibited by this Agreement, (e) in connection with any litigation to which any one (1) or more of the Lenders (in each case, including to any of its respective employees, counsel, representatives or other agents) is a party, or in connection with the exercise of any remedy hereunder or under the, other Loan Documents, (f) to the Lenders’ legal counsel and independent auditors and accountants, (g) that was in the Lenders’ possession prior to the disclosure by the Borrower to the Lenders; provided that the source of such information was not known to the Lenders to be bound by a confidentiality agreement with the Borrower with respect to such information, (h) that is developed by the Lenders independently of and without reference to any Confidential Information, (i) that is identified by the Borrower in writing as no longer to be considered “Confidential Information”, (j) to any actual or proposed participant or assignee; provided that any actual or proposed participant or assignee has signed an agreement containing provisions substantially similar to or at least as restrictive as those contained in this Section 9.21 (including by cross reference to obligations of the Lenders), and (k) to any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any securitization, swap or

63

The Specified Transactions constitute private and commercial acts done and performed for commercial purposes; and
 
  6.21.   the obligations of the Borrower under the Facility, the Control Agreement and the Promissory Notes to which it is a party are direct and unconditional general obligations of the Borrower and rank at least pari passu with all other present and future secured debt of the Borrower.
7.   The opinions set forth above are, however, subject to certain qualifications, namely:
  7.1.   in case of bankruptcy or liquidation of the Borrower certain credits, such as labor credits of up to an amount of 150 base wages (salários mínimos) per labor credit have preference over unsecured credits;

EXHIBIT F
FORM OF LEGAL OPINION OF U.S. COUNSEL TO THE BORROWER
July 30, 2010
Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch,
as Initial Lender under the Loan Agreement referred to below.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
          We have acted as special New York counsel to Angélica Agroenergia Ltda. (the “Borrower”) and Adecoagro LLC (the “Guarantor”) in connection with the Senior Secured Loan Facility dated as of July 28, 2010 (the “Loan Agreement”) between the Borrower and Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as Initial Lender (the “Initial Lender”, and together with its successors and permitted assigns and any other bank, financial institution or other person that becomes a Lender after the date of the Loan Agreement pursuant to Section 9.8 thereof, the “Lenders”). Terms defined in the Loan Agreement have the same respective defined meanings when used herein.
          In rendering the opinions expressed below, we have examined:
  (a)   an executed copy of the Loan Agreement;
 
  (b)   an executed copy of the Guarantee Agreement;
 
  (c)   an executed copy of the Control Agreement;
 
  (d)   the financing statement naming the Borrower as debtor and naming the Initial Lender as secured party for filing in the office of the District of Columbia Recorder of Deeds in the form attached hereto as Schedule I (the “Financing Statement”);
 
  (e)   the promissory note issued to the Initial Lender in substantially the form attached hereto as Schedule II (the “Promissory Note” and,

 


 

2
      together with the Loan Agreement, the Guarantee Agreement and the Control Agreement, the “Opinion Documents”); and
 
  (f)   such records of the Guarantor and such other documents as we have deemed necessary as a basis for the opinions expressed below.
          In our examination, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals and the conformity with authentic original documents of all documents submitted to us as copies. When relevant facts were not independently established, we have relied upon certificates of public officials and representations made in or pursuant to the Opinion Documents or in certificates delivered by or on behalf of the Borrower and the Guarantor. We have also assumed, except to the extent explicitly set forth below as to the Borrower and the Guarantor, as applicable, that each of the Opinion Documents has been duly authorized by, and has been duly executed and delivered by, and constitutes a legal, valid, binding and enforceable obligation of, all of the parties thereto, that all signatories thereto have been duly authorized and that all such parties are duly organized and validly existing and have the power and authority (corporate or other) to execute, deliver and perform the same, and that all authorizations, approvals or consents of (including without limitation all foreign exchange control approvals), and all filings or registrations with, any governmental or regulatory authority or agency of Brazil (including the central bank of Brazil) required for the making and performance by the Borrower of the Loan Agreement and the Control Agreement have been obtained or made and are in effect.
          Based upon and subject to the foregoing and subject also to the comments and qualifications set forth below, and having considered such questions of law as we have deemed necessary as a basis for the opinions expressed below, we are of the opinion that:
          (1) The Guarantor is a limited liability company validly existing and in good standing under the law of the State of Delaware.
          (2) The Guarantor
               (a) has the limited liability company power to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement,
               (b) has taken all necessary limited liability company action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of the Guarantee Agreement, and
               (c) has duly executed and delivered the Guarantee Agreement.
          (3) (a) Each of the Loan Agreement and the Control Agreement constitutes, and the Promissory Note when duly executed and delivered for value will constitute, a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Borrower and (b) the Guarantee Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Guarantor, in each case enforceable against the Borrower or the Guarantor, as applicable, in accordance with its

 


 

3
terms, except as may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, fraudulent conveyance or transfer, moratorium or other similar laws relating to or affecting the rights of creditors generally, and to the possible judicial application of foreign laws or foreign governmental action affecting the rights of creditors generally, and except as the enforceability thereof is subject to the application of general principles of equity (regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law), including without limitation (i) the possible unavailability of specific performance, injunctive relief or any other equitable remedy and (ii) concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing.
          (4) The execution and delivery by the Borrower and the Guarantor of the Opinion Documents to which they are a party do not, and the performance by the Borrower and the Guarantor of their respective obligations thereunder will not,
     (a) violate any Federal law of the United States or any law of the State of New York, or any rule or regulation thereunder that, in each case, in our experience, is customarily recognized to apply to transactions of the kind contemplated by the Opinion Documents, or
     (b) require any authorization, approval or consent of, or any filing or registration with any governmental authority under any Federal law of the United States or any law of the State of New York, or any rule or regulation thereunder.
          (5) The execution and delivery by the Guarantor of the Guarantee Agreement do not, and the performance by the Guarantor of its obligations thereunder will not, result in a violation of the Guarantor’s Organizational Documents.
          (6) The execution and delivery by the Borrower of the Loan Agreement do not, and the performance by the Borrower of its obligations thereunder will not, breach or constitute a default under any agreement or instrument listed on Schedule III hereto (the “Specified Contracts”).
          (7) Section 3.7(a) of the Loan Agreement is effective to create, in favor of the Initial Lender, for the benefit of the Lenders, a valid security interest under the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in the State of New York (the “NY UCC”) in the Debt Service Reserve Account and any and all investment property (as defined in § 9-102(a)(49) of the NY UCC) (collectively, the “Collateral”), provided that (a) such security interest will continue in the Collateral after disposition thereof and in any proceeds (as defined in § 9-102(a)(64) of the NY UCC) thereof only to the extent provided in § 9-315 of the NY UCC and (b) such security interest in any portion of the Collateral in which the Borrower acquires rights after the commencement of a case under the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Code of 1978, as amended (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in respect of the Borrower may be limited by Section 552 of the Bankruptcy Code.
          (8) The security interest created by Section 3.7(a) of the Loan

 


 

4
Agreement in the Collateral has been perfected by the execution and delivery of the Control Agreement by the parties thereto.
          (9) If the jurisdiction where the Borrower’s place of business or (if the Borrower has more than one place of business) chief executive office is located (the “Borrower’s UCC Jurisdiction”) constitutes a filing jurisdiction as hereinafter defined (as to which we express no opinion) under § 9-301 of the NY UCC, the local law of the Borrower’s UCC Jurisdiction governs perfection, the effect of perfection or nonperfection and the priority of the security interest created by Section 3.7(a) of the Loan Agreement in the Collateral of a type that may be perfected by the filing of a financing statement (such Collateral, “Filing Collateral”). If the Borrower’s UCC Jurisdiction does not constitute a filing jurisdiction as hereinafter defined, (i) the Borrower will be deemed to be located in the District of Columbia for purposes of Article 9 of the NY UCC, (ii) under § 9-301 of the NY UCC, the local law of the District of Columbia governs perfection, the effect of perfection or nonperfection and the priority of the security interest created by Section 3.7(a) of the Loan Agreement in the Filing Collateral and (iii) pursuant to § 9-501 of the DC UCC (as defined below), the filing of the Financing Statement in the office of the District of Columbia Recorder of Deeds will cause such security interest to be perfected. As used herein, “filing jurisdiction” means a jurisdiction whose law generally requires information concerning the existence of a nonpossessory security interest to be made generally available in a filing, recording or registration system as a condition or result of the security interest’s taking priority over the rights of a lien creditor (as defined in § 9-102(a)(52) of the NY UCC) with respect to the Collateral.
          (10) The Borrower is not required, nor will it be required after the making of the Loan and the use of the proceeds thereof in accordance with the Loan Agreement, to register as an “investment company” as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
          (11) The making of the Loan and the application of the proceeds thereof in accordance with the Loan Agreement will not violate Regulations U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board.
          The foregoing opinions are also subject to the following comments and qualifications:
     (A) The enforceability of provisions in the Opinion Documents to the effect that terms may not be waived or modified except in writing may be limited under certain circumstances.
     (B) The enforceability of Sections 9.4(b) and (c) of the Loan Agreement, and of any similar provision of any other Opinion Document, may be limited by laws limiting the enforceability of provisions exculpating or exempting a party from, or requiring indemnification of or contribution to a party for, liability for its

 


 

5
own action or inaction, to the extent the action or inaction involves gross negligence, recklessness, wilful misconduct or unlawful conduct.
     (C) We express no opinion as to (i) the effect of any laws of any jurisdiction in which the Initial Lender is located (other than New York) that limits the interest, fees or other charges it may impose for the Loan or use of money or other credit, (ii) Section 3.8(a) of the Loan Agreement or Section 6 of the Guarantee Agreement (other than Section 4.5 of the Loan Agreement incorporated by reference therein), (iii) Section 9.13(a) of the Loan Agreement or Section 16(a) of the Guarantee Agreement insofar as each such Section relates to the subject-matter jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York to adjudicate any controversy related to the Loan Agreement or the Guarantee Agreement, (iv) the waiver of inconvenient forum set forth in Section 9.13(d) of the Loan Agreement or Section 16(c) of the Guarantee Agreement with respect to proceedings in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, (v) Section 9.13(e) of the Loan Agreement or (vi) Section 9.16 of the Loan Agreement.
     (D) We express no opinion as to Section 9.15 of the Loan Agreement or Section 16(e) of the Guarantee Agreement to the extent it relates to immunity acquired after the date of execution and delivery of the Loan Agreement or the Guarantee Agreement, as the case may be.
     (E) Section 2 of the Guarantee Agreement may not be enforceable to the extent that the Obligations (as defined therein) are novated as a result of a material modification thereof.
     (F) For purposes of our opinion in paragraph (6) above, we have assumed that (i) there are no agreements or understandings, written or oral, among the parties to any of the Specified Contracts that would alter the plain meaning thereof, and none of the Specified Contracts has been modified except as specified on Schedule III hereto. In addition, for purposes of our opinion in paragraph (6) above, we express no opinion as to any provision of any Specified Contract to the extent that such opinion would depend upon the making of any determination of an accounting matter or any computation in respect of a financial undertaking or condition.
     (G) We express no opinion as to the existence of, or the right, title or interest of the Borrower in, to or under, the Collateral, and except as expressly provided in paragraphs (7), (8) and (9) above, we express no opinion as to the creation, perfection or priority of any security interest in, or other lien on, the Collateral.
     (H) We assume that (i) each endorsement, instruction and entitlement order, as such terms are defined in § 8-102(a) of the NY UCC, is effective in accordance with § 8-107 of the NY UCC and (ii) the Debt Service Reserve

 


 

6
Account is a securities account (as defined in § 8-501 of the NY UCC). We express no opinion as to the effect of any rule adopted by any clearing corporation, as defined in § 8-102(a) of the NY UCC, governing rights and obligations among such clearing corporation and its participants. Our opinion with respect to any security entitlement is subject to Part 5 of Article 8 of the NY UCC, which sets out the rights of an entitlement holder having a security entitlement against a securities intermediary. We express no opinion as to the creation, perfection or priority of any security interest in any obligations of the government of the United States or any agency or instrumentality thereof except for obligations subject to the Revised Book-Entry Rules as defined in Annex 1 hereto.
     (I) With respect to our opinion in paragraph (9) above, we have assumed that the Financing Statement will be filed in the appropriate filing office no later than thirty (30) days after an initial extension of credit under the Loan Agreement.
     (J) With respect to our opinion in paragraphs (7), (8) and (9) above, we express no opinion as to the creation or perfection of any security interest in the Collateral to the extent that, pursuant to § 9-109(c) or (d) of the NY UCC, Article 9 of the NY UCC does not apply thereto. With respect to our opinion in paragraph (9) above, we express no opinion as to the perfection of any security interest in the Collateral to the extent that, pursuant to § 9-109(c) or (d) of the DC UCC (as defined below), Article 9 of the DC UCC does not apply thereto.
     (K) We wish to point out that the acquisition by the Borrower after the initial extension of credit under the Loan Agreement of an interest in any property that becomes subject to the lien of Section 3.7(a) of the Loan Agreement may constitute a voidable preference under Section 547 of the Bankruptcy Code.
     (L) Our opinions in paragraph (9) above and our related comments and qualifications above, insofar as they relate to perfection of a security interest under the law of the District of Columbia, are based solely upon a review of the relevant statutory text of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code as displayed on CCH Research Network and Section 513 of Chapter 5 of Title 9 of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations as displayed on LEXIS/NEXIS on July 28, 2010, without regard to the decisional law thereof (the “DC UCC”).
          The foregoing opinions are limited to matters involving the Federal laws of the United States, the law of the State of New York, the Delaware Limited Liability Act and, to the extent expressly provided in paragraph (L) above, the law of the District of Columbia, and we do not express any opinion as to the law of any other jurisdiction. Without limiting the foregoing, we do not hold ourselves out as experts on, or purport to advise on, the laws of Brazil.
          This opinion letter is provided to you by us as special New York counsel to the Borrower and the Guarantor pursuant to Section 5.1(e)(ii) of the Loan Agreement
