Section 2.  AMOUNT AND TERMS OF COMMITMENTS

2.1  Delayed Draw Term Commitments.  Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Lender severally agrees to make up to four loans (each such loan, a “Delayed Draw Term Loan”) to the Borrowers from time to time in AUD on any Business Day during the Delayed Draw Term Commitment Period in an aggregate amount not to exceed such Lender’s Delayed Draw Term Commitment.  The Delayed Draw Term Loans shall be Eurodollar Loans.  Amounts paid or prepaid in respect of Delayed Draw Term Loans may not be reborrowed.  

2.2  Procedure for Borrowing.  The Borrowers shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable notice in the form of Exhibit E (which notice must be received by the Administrative Agent prior to 11:00 A.M., New York City time, four (4) Business Days prior to the requested Borrowing Date, specifying the amount to be borrowed, the requested Borrowing Date and the initial Interest Period applicable to such Delayed Draw Term Loan, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of “Interest Period”).  Upon receipt of such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Delayed Draw Term Lender thereof.  Not later than 11:00 A.M., Sydney time, on the Funding Date and each other date that a Delayed Draw Term Loan is to be made, each Delayed Draw Term Lender shall make available to the Administrative Agent at the Funding Office an amount in AUD in immediately available funds equal to the Delayed Draw Term Loan to be made by such Lender.  The Administrative Agent shall credit the account of the Borrowers on the books of such office of the Administrative Agent with the aggregate of the amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by the Delayed Draw Term Lenders in immediately available funds.

If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Eurodollar Tranche, then Borrowers shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.  Promptly following receipt of a borrowing request in the form of Exhibit E and in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Delayed Draw Term Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of such Delayed Draw Term Lender’s Delayed Draw Term Loan to be made.

-33-

 


 

Each Delayed Draw Term Loan shall be made by the Delayed Draw Term Lenders ratably in accordance with their applicable Delayed Draw Term Commitments; provided that the failure of any Delayed Draw Term Lender to make its Delayed Draw Term Loan shall not in itself relieve any other Delayed Draw Term Lender of its obligation to lend hereunder (it being understood, however, that no Delayed Draw Term Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Delayed Draw Term Lender to make any Delayed Draw Term Loan required to be made by such other Delayed Draw Term Lender).  Eurodollar Loans comprising any Delayed Draw Term Loan shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is an integral multiple of AUD1,000,000 and not less than AUD5,000,000.

Subject to Sections 2.16 and 2.18, each Eurodollar Tranche shall be comprised entirely of Eurodollar Loans as the Borrowers may request in accordance herewith.  Each Delayed Draw Term Lender may at its option make any Eurodollar Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate of such Delayed Draw Term Lender to make such Delayed Draw Term Loan; provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrowers to repay such Delayed Draw Term Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  Borrowings of Delayed Draw Term Loans of more than one Type may be outstanding at the same time, subject to Section 2.13.  For purposes of the foregoing, Eurodollar Tranches having different Interest Periods, regardless of whether they commence on the same date, shall be considered separate borrowings.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Borrowers shall not be entitled to request, or to elect to continue, any Eurodollar Tranche if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto would end after the Delayed Draw Term Loan Maturity Date.  

2.3  [Reserved].  

2.4  [Reserved].  

2.5  [Reserved].  

2.6  [Reserved].

2.8  Unused Fees, etc.  

(a) The Borrowers agree to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Delayed Draw Term Lender, a per annum unused line fee (the “Unused Fee”) equal to 0.25% times the actual daily amount by which the Delayed Draw Term Facility exceeds the outstanding amount of Delayed Draw Term Loans (determined at the Spot Rate for purposes of clause (a)(i) below) during the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the Delayed Draw Termination Date.  The Unused Fee shall be payable in arrears as follows:

(i)on the Funding Date, in Dollars; and

(ii)on each Fee Payment Date and on the Delayed Draw Termination Date, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Funding Date, in AUD.

-34-

 


 

(b)  The Borrowers agree to pay to the Administrative Agent the fees in the amounts and on the dates as set forth in any fee agreements with the Administrative Agent and to perform any other obligations contained therein.

2.9  Termination or Reduction of Commitments.  

(a)  Prior to the Delayed Draw Termination Date, the Borrowers shall have the right to terminate the Delayed Draw Term Commitments or, from time to time, to reduce the amount of the Delayed Draw Term Commitments.  Any such reduction shall be in an amount equal to AUD5,000,000, or a whole multiple of AUD1,000,000 in excess thereof, and shall reduce permanently the Delayed Draw Term Commitments then in effect.  The Borrowers shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Delayed Draw Term Commitments under this Section at least three (3) Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof.  Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof.  Each notice delivered by the Borrowers pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of the Delayed Draw Term Commitments delivered by the Borrowers may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrowers (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.  Any termination or reduction of the Delayed Draw Term Commitments shall be permanent.  Each reduction of the Delayed Draw Term Commitments shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Delayed Draw Term Commitments.

(b)  The Delayed Draw Term Commitment of a Delayed Draw Term Lender shall be automatically and permanently reduced by the amount of each Delayed Draw Term Loan made by such Lender.  The aggregate unfunded Delayed Draw Term Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the earlier of (i) the Delayed Draw Termination Date and (ii) the date the aggregate Delayed Draw Term Loans made by all Delayed Draw Term Lenders equals the aggregate amount of the Delayed Draw Term Commitments.

2.10  Prepayments.  The Borrowers may at any time and from time to time prepay the Loans, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty (except as set forth below), upon irrevocable notice delivered to the Administrative Agent no later than 11:00 A.M., New York City time, four Business Days prior thereto, which notice shall specify the date and amount of prepayment; provided, that if a Loan is prepaid on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrowers shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 2.20.  Upon receipt of any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender thereof.  If any such notice is given, the amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein, together with accrued interest to such date on the amount prepaid.  Partial prepayments of Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount of AUD5,000,000 or a whole multiple of AUD1,000,000 in excess thereof or, in each case, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding.

2.11  Repayment of Loans.  

(a)  The Borrowers promise to repay all outstanding Loans on the Delayed Draw Term Loan Maturity Date or such earlier date as required herein.  

-35-

 


 

(b)  Amounts to be applied in connection with prepayments of Loans made pursuant to Section 2.10 shall be applied to the prepayment of Loans. Each prepayment of the Loans under Section 2.10 shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the amount prepaid.

2.12  Continuation Options.  

(a)  Any Eurodollar Loan may be continued as such upon the expiration of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto by the Borrowers giving irrevocable written notice to the Administrative Agent substantially in the form of Exhibit E-2, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the term “Interest Period” set forth in Section 1.1, of the length of the next Interest Period to be applicable to such Loans (or, if none is specified, one month), provided, that if the Borrowers shall fail to give any required notice as described above in this paragraph or if any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent has or the Required Lenders have determined in its or their sole discretion not to permit such continuations then all Loans shall be continued with an Interest Period of one month.  Upon receipt of any such notice (or any such automatic continuation) the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each relevant Lender thereof.  During the existence of an Event of Default, the Required Lenders may demand that any or all of the then outstanding Eurodollar Loans be prepaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto.

2.13  Limitations on Eurodollar Tranches.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, all borrowings and continuations of Loans and all selections of Interest Periods shall be in such amounts and be made pursuant to such elections so that, (a) after giving effect thereto, the aggregate principal amount of the Loans comprising each Eurodollar Tranche shall be equal to AUD5,000,000 or a whole multiple of AUD1,000,000 in excess thereof and (b) no more than ten (10) Eurodollar Tranches shall be outstanding at any one time.

2.14  Interest Rates and Payment Dates.  

(a)  Each Eurodollar Loan shall bear interest for each day during each Interest Period with respect thereto at a rate per annum equal to the Eurodollar Rate determined for such day plus the Applicable Margin.

(b)  (i) If all or a portion of the principal amount of any Loan shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), all overdue outstanding Loans shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the rate that would otherwise be applicable thereto pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section plus 2%, and (ii) if all or a portion of any interest payable on any Loan or any commitment fee or other amount payable hereunder shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall bear interest at the same rate that a Loan with a one month Interest Period (commencing on the date such amount was payable) would bear under the circumstances described in clause (i) above; in each case, with respect to clauses (i) and (ii) above, from the date of such non‑payment until such amount is paid in full (as well after as before judgment).

(c)  Interest shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date, provided that interest accruing pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable from time to time on demand of the Administrative Agent.

-36-

 


 

2.15  Computation of Interest and Fees.  

(a)  Fees payable pursuant hereto shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual days elapsed.  Interest on Loans shall be calculated on the basis of a 365-day year for the actual days elapsed.  The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Borrowers and the relevant Lenders of each determination of a Eurodollar Rate.  Any change in the interest rate on a Loan resulting from a change in the Eurocurrency Reserve Requirements shall become effective as of the opening of business on the day on which such change becomes effective.  The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Borrowers and the relevant Lenders of the effective date and the amount of each such change in interest rate.

(b)  Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any provision of this Agreement shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers and the Lenders in the absence of manifest error.  The Administrative Agent shall, at the request of the Borrowers, deliver to the Borrowers a statement showing the quotations used by the Administrative Agent in determining any interest rate pursuant to Section 2.14(a).

2.16  Inability to Determine Interest Rate.  (a) If in connection with any request for a Eurodollar Loan or a continuation thereof, (i) the Administrative Agent determines that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Loan (in each case with respect to this clause (i), an “Impacted Loan”), or (ii) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders determine that for any reason  the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Eurodollar Loan, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Operating Partnership and each Lender.  Thereafter, the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain Eurodollar Loans shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Loans or Interest Periods) until the Administrative Agent or, in the case of a determination by the Required Lenders described in clause (ii) of the preceding sentence, until the Administrative Agent upon instruction of the Required Lenders revokes such notice.  Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrowers may revoke any pending request for an Impacted Loan, or a continuation of Impacted Loans; failing such a revocation by the Borrowers, the Borrowers will be deemed to have (i) converted such request into a request for a Loan bearing interest at a per annum rate equal to the Alternative Rate applicable to the relevant Impacted Loan plus the Applicable Margin (in the case where an Alternative Rate for such Impacted Loan has been established) or (ii) revoked their request for such Impacted Loan (in the case where an Alternative Rate for such Impacted Loan has not been established).

(b)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Administrative Agent has made the determination described in clause (i) of Section 2.16(a), the Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrower, may establish an alternative interest rate for the Impacted Loans (each such rate established, an “Alternative Rate”), in which case, such Alternative Rate shall apply with respect to the Impacted Loans until (i) the Administrative Agent revokes the notice delivered with respect to the Impacted Loans under clause (i) of the first sentence of Section 2.16(a), (ii) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent and the Operating Partnership that such Alternative Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding the Impacted Loans, or (iii) any Lender determines that any law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its applicable lending office to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to such Alternative Rate or to determine or charge interest rates based upon such rate or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to do any of the foregoing and provides the Administrative Agent and the Operating Partnership written notice thereof.

2.17  Pro Rata Treatment and Payments.  

(a)  Each borrowing by the Borrowers from the Lenders hereunder, each payment by the Borrowers on account of any unused fee and any reduction of the Commitments of the Lenders shall be made pro rata according to the respective Delayed Draw Term Percentages of the Lenders.

(b)  Each payment (including each prepayment) by the Borrower on account of principal of and interest on the Loans shall be made pro rata according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Loans then held by the Lenders.  Amounts repaid or prepaid on account of the Loans may not be reborrowed.  

(c)  [reserved].

(d)  All payments (including prepayments) to be made by the Borrowers hereunder, whether on account of principal, interest, fees or otherwise, shall be made without setoff or counterclaim.  All payments shall be made prior to 12:00 Noon, Sydney time, on the due date thereof to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Lenders, at the Funding Office, in AUD (or in the case of fees payable pursuant to Section 2.8, in Dollars) and in immediately available funds.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments made by the Borrowers hereunder with respect to principal and interest on Loans shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders, on the dates specified herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may require that any payments due under this Agreement be made in the United States.  If, for any reason, the Borrowers are prohibited by any Requirement of Law from making any required payment hereunder in AUD, the Borrowers shall make such payment in Dollars in the Dollar Equivalent of the AUD payment amount.  The Administrative Agent shall distribute such payments to the Lenders promptly upon receipt in like funds as received.  If any payment hereunder (other than payments on the Eurodollar Loans) becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day.  If any payment on a Loan becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the maturity thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless the result of such extension would be to extend such payment into another calendar month, in which event such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day.  In the case of any extension of any payment of principal pursuant to the preceding two sentences, interest thereon shall be payable at the then applicable rate during such extension.

(e)  Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by any Lender prior to a borrowing that such Lender will not make the amount that would constitute its share of such borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender is making such amount available to the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrowers a corresponding amount.  If such amount is not made available to the Administrative Agent by the required time on the Borrowing Date therefor, the applicable Lender and the Borrowers agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the Overnight Rate, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing, and (B) in the case of a payment to be made by such Borrower, the Eurodollar Rate then applicable to Loans with an Interest Period of one month (with the deemed commencement of such Interest Period being determined by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion

-38-

 


 

for purposes of determining the appropriate Eurodollar Rate).  If the Borrowers and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to such Borrowers the amount of such interest paid by the Borrowers for such period.  If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Loan to the Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan.  Any payment by the Borrowers shall be without prejudice to any claim the Borrowers may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.

(f)  Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by the Borrowers prior to the date of any payment due to be made by the Borrowers hereunder that the Borrowers will not make such payment to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrowers are making such payment, and the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be required to, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Lenders their respective pro rata shares of a corresponding amount.  If such payment is not made to the Administrative Agent by the Borrowers within three Business Days after such due date, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover, on demand, from each Lender to which any amount which was made available pursuant to the preceding sentence, such amount with interest thereon at the rate per annum equal to the daily average Federal Funds Rate.  Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the rights of the Administrative Agent or any Lender against the Borrowers.

(g)  If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.5, Section 2.7(b), Section 2.7(c), Section 2.17(d), Section 2.17(e), Section 3.4(a) or Section 9.7, then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender under such Sections; in the case of each of (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.

2.18  Requirements of Law.  (a)  If any Change in Law:

(i)shall subject any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;

(ii)shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, liquidity, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances, loans or other extensions of credit by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender that is not otherwise included in the determination of the Eurodollar Rate; or

(iii)shall impose on such Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes);

-39-

 


 

and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender, by an amount that such Lender deems to be material, of making, converting into, continuing or maintaining Eurodollar Loans, or to reduce any amount receivable hereunder in respect thereof, then, in any such case, the Borrowers shall promptly pay such Lender, upon its demand, any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduced amount receivable.  If any Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this paragraph, it shall promptly notify the Borrowers (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled.

(b)  If any Lender shall have determined that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements or ratios shall have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such holding company’s policies with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity) by an amount deemed by such Lender to be material, then from time to time, after submission by such Lender to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of a written request therefor, the Borrowers shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such holding company for such reduction.

(c)  A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section submitted by any Lender to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any amounts incurred more than nine months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrowers of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided that, if the circumstances giving rise to such claim have a retroactive effect, then such nine-month period shall be extended to include the period of such retroactive effect.  The obligations of the Borrowers pursuant to this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

2.19  Taxes.  

(a)  Payments Free of Taxes.  Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law.  If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.19) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.  Notwithstanding this Section 2.19, an increase in the sum payable by any Loan Party shall not be required by reason of a deduction or withholding for or on account of Australian Withholding Tax to the extent that the deduction or withholding is required as a result of any representation or warranty given by BofA Securities, Inc. or any Lender under Section 10.22 being untrue or incorrect.

-40-

 


 

(b)  Payment of Other Taxes by the Loan Parties.  The Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for, Other Taxes.

(c)  Evidence of Payments.  As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.19, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(d)  Indemnification by the Loan Parties.  The Loan Parties shall jointly and severally indemnify each Recipient, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrowers by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(e)  Indemnification by the Lenders.  Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.06 relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (e).

(f)  Status of Lenders.  (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.19(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

-41-

 


 

(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that any Borrower is a U.S. Person,

(A) any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. Federal backup withholding tax;

(B) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

(1)  in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, an executed IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

(2)  an executed IRS Form W-8ECI;

(3)  in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of any Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) an executed IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable; or

(C)  any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. Federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(D) if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.

(g)  Treatment of Certain Refunds.  If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.19 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.19), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 2.19 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund).  Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid.  This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(h)  Survival.  Each party’s obligations under this Section 2.19 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.

(i)  Defined Terms.  For purposes of this Section 2.19, the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.

2.20  Indemnity.  The Borrowers agree to indemnify each Lender for, and to hold each Lender harmless from, any loss, cost or expense (including any foreign exchange losses) that such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) default by the Borrowers in making a borrowing of or continuation of Eurodollar Loans after the Borrowers have given a notice requesting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (b) default by the Borrowers in making any prepayment of after the Borrowers have given a notice thereof in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (c) the making of a prepayment of Eurodollar Loans on a day that is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto, (d) the assignment of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period pursuant to a request by the Borrowers under Section 2.22, or (e) any failure by the Borrowers to make payment of any Loan (or interest due thereon) on its scheduled due date or any payment thereof in a different currency.  In the case of a Eurodollar Loan, such indemnification shall be deemed to include the amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the amount so prepaid, or not so borrowed, converted or continued, at the Eurodollar Rate that would have been applicable for the period from the date of such prepayment or of such failure to borrow, convert or continue to the last day of such Interest Period (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, the Interest Period that would have commenced on the date of such failure) in each case at the applicable rate of interest for such Loans provided for herein (excluding, however, the Applicable Margin included therein, if any) over (ii) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by such Lender) that would have accrued to such Lender on such amount by placing such amount on deposit for a comparable period with leading banks in the interbank eurodollar market.  A certificate as to any amounts payable pursuant to this Section submitted to the Borrowers by any Lender shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  This covenant shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.  This Section 2.20 shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than Taxes that represent losses, costs or expenses arising from any non-Tax claims.

2.21  Change of Lending Office.  Each Lender agrees that, upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to the operation of Section 2.18 or 2.19 with respect to such Lender, it will, if requested by the Borrowers, use reasonable efforts (subject to overall policy considerations of such Lender) to designate another lending office for any Loans affected by such event with the object of avoiding the consequences of such event; provided, that such designation is made on terms that, in the sole judgment of such Lender, cause such Lender and its lending office(s) to suffer no economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage, and provided, further, that nothing in this Section shall affect or postpone any of the obligations of the Borrowers or the rights of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.18 or 2.19(a).

-44-

 


 

2.22  Replacement of Lenders.  The Borrowers shall be permitted to replace any Lender that (a) requests reimbursement for amounts owing pursuant to Section 2.18 or 2.19 or (b) becomes a Defaulting Lender or a Non-Consenting Lender, with a replacement financial institution; provided that (i) such replacement does not conflict with any Requirement of Law, (ii) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such replacement, (iii) if applicable, prior to any such replacement, such Lender shall have taken no action under Section 2.21 so as to eliminate the continued need for payment of amounts owing pursuant to Section 2.18 or 2.19, (iv) the replacement financial institution shall purchase, at par, all Loans and other amounts owing to such replaced Lender on or prior to the date of replacement, (v) the Borrowers shall be liable to such replaced Lender under Section 2.20 if any Eurodollar Loan owing to such replaced Lender shall be purchased other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto, (vi) the replacement financial institution, if not already a Lender, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (vii) the replaced Lender shall be obligated to make such replacement in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.6 (provided that the Borrowers shall be obligated to pay the registration and processing fee referred to therein), (viii) until such time as such replacement shall be consummated, the Borrowers shall pay all additional amounts (if any) required pursuant to Section 2.18 or 2.19, as the case may be, and (ix) any such replacement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights that the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender shall have against the replaced Lender.

2.23  Incremental Commitments.  

(a)  Incremental Facilities.  On one or more occasions at any time after the Closing Date, the Borrowers may by written notice to the Administrative Agent elect to request an increase to the existing Commitments (any such increase, the “Incremental Commitments”), by up to an aggregate amount not to exceed AUD550,000,000 for all Incremental Commitments (so that the sum of the Commitments plus the principal amount of Delayed Draw Term Loans made hereunder does not exceed AUD1,750,000,000).  Each such notice shall specify the date (each, an “Increased Amount Date”) on which the Borrowers propose that such Incremental Commitments shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than ten (10) Business Days after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent and/or its Affiliates shall use commercially reasonable efforts, with the assistance of the Borrowers, to arrange a syndicate of Lenders or other Persons that are Eligible Assignees willing to hold the requested Incremental Commitments; provided that (x) any Incremental Commitments on any Increased Amount Date shall be in the minimum aggregate amount of AUD25,000,000, (y) any Lender approached to provide all or a portion of the Incremental Commitments may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide an Incremental Commitment; provided that the Lenders will first be afforded the opportunity to provide the Incremental Commitments on a pro rata basis, and if any Lender so approached fails to respond within such ten (10) Business Day period after its receipt of such request, such Lender shall be deemed to have declined to provide such Incremental Commitments, and (z) any Lender or other Person that is an Eligible Assignee (each, a “New Lender”) to whom any portion of such Incremental Commitment shall be allocated shall be subject to the approval of the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

The terms and provisions of any Incremental Commitments shall be identical to the existing Commitments.

-45-

 


 

The effectiveness of any Incremental Commitments and the availability of any borrowings under any such Incremental Commitments shall be subject to the satisfaction of the following conditions precedent: (i) after giving pro forma effect to such Incremental Commitments and borrowings and the use of proceeds thereof, (x) no Default or Event of Default shall exist and (y) as of the last day of the most recent calendar quarter for which financial statements have been delivered pursuant to Section 6.1, the Borrowers would have been in compliance with the financial covenants set forth in Section 7.1; (ii) the representations and warranties made or deemed made by the Borrowers in any Loan Document shall be true and correct in all material respects (other than any representation or warranty qualified as to “materiality”, “Material Adverse Effect” or similar language, which shall be true and correct in all respects) on the effective date of such Incremental Commitments except to the extent that such representations and warranties expressly relate solely to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties shall have been true and correct in all material respects on and as of such earlier date); (iii) the Administrative Agent shall have received each of the following, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent: (x) if not previously delivered to the Administrative Agent, copies certified by the Secretary or Assistant Secretary (or, in the case of MPT Australia organized under the laws of Australia (or any of its jurisdictions), a  director) of all corporate or other necessary action taken by each of the Borrowers to authorize such Incremental Commitments, (y) customary opinions of counsel (which may be in substantially the same forms as delivered on the Closing Date) addressed to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, and (z) if requested by any New Lender, Notes executed by the Borrowers, payable to such New Lender; and (iv) (x) upon the reasonable request of any Lender or New Lender made at least ten days prior to the applicable Increased Amount Date, the Borrowers shall have provided to such Lender or New Lender, and such Lender or New Lender shall be reasonably satisfied with, the documentation and other information so requested in connection with applicable “know your customer” and anti-money-laundering rules and regulations, including, without limitation, the Patriot Act, the Australian AML Act and the Beneficial Ownership Regulation, in each case at least five days prior to the Increased Amount Date and (y) at least five days prior to the applicable Increased Amount Date, any Loan Party that qualifies as a “legal entity customer” under the Beneficial Ownership Regulation shall have delivered, to each Lender or New Lender that so requests, a Beneficial Ownership Certification in relation to such Loan Party.  

On any Increased Amount Date during the Delayed Draw Term Commitment Period, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (a) each of the Delayed Draw Term Lenders shall assign to each of the New Lenders, and each of the New Lenders shall purchase from each of the Delayed Draw Term Lenders, at the principal amount thereof (together with accrued interest), such interests in the Delayed Draw Term Loans outstanding on such Increased Amount Date as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such assignments and purchases, such Delayed Draw Term Loans will be held by existing Delayed Draw Term Lenders and New Lenders ratably in accordance with their Commitments after giving effect to the addition of such Incremental Commitments to the Delayed Draw Term Commitments, (b) each Incremental Commitment shall be deemed for all purposes a Delayed Draw Term Commitment and each Loan made thereunder shall be deemed, for all purposes, a Delayed Draw Term Loan and (c) each New Lender shall become a Lender with respect to its Incremental Commitment and all matters relating thereto.

-46-

 


 

On any Increased Amount Date on or after the Delayed Draw Term Commitment Period, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (i) each New Lender shall make a Loan to the Borrowers (a “New Loan”) in an amount equal to its Incremental Commitment, and (ii) each New Lender shall become a Lender hereunder with respect to the Incremental Commitment and the New Loans made pursuant thereto.

The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders promptly upon receipt of the Borrowers’ notice of each Increased Amount Date and in respect thereof (y) the Incremental Commitments and the New Lenders, and (z) in the case of each notice during the Delayed Draw Term Commitment Period, the respective interests in such Delayed Draw Term Lender’s Delayed Draw Term Loans, in each case subject to the assignments contemplated by this paragraph.

The fees payable by the Borrowers to Lenders upon any such Incremental Commitments shall be agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers at the time of such increase.

The Incremental Commitments shall be evidenced pursuant to one or more Additional Credit Extension Amendments executed and delivered by the Borrowers, the New Lenders and the Administrative Agent, and each of which shall be recorded in the Register.  Each Additional Credit Extension Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.23, subject to the approval of the Borrowers (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

2.24  Defaulting Lenders.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:

(a)  fees shall cease to accrue on the unused portion of the Delayed Draw Term Commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.8;

(b)  the Commitments and Loans of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether all Lenders or the Required Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 10.1), provided that any waiver, amendment or modification that increases the Commitment of a Defaulting Lender, forgives all or any portion of the principal amount of any Loan or interest thereon owing to a Defaulting Lender, reduces the Applicable Margin on the underlying interest rate options owing to a Defaulting Lender or extends the Delayed Draw Term Loan Maturity Date applicable to such Defaulting Lender shall require the consent of such Defaulting Lender;

(c)  [reserved]

(d)  [reserved]

(e)  In the event that the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers each agree that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then on such date such Lender shall purchase at par such of the Loans of the other Lenders as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Lender to hold such Loans in accordance with its Delayed Draw Term Percentage.

-47-

 


 

2.25  Joint and Several Liability.  

(a)  Each of the Borrowers is accepting joint and several liability hereunder and under the other Loan Documents in consideration of the financial accommodation to be provided by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders under this Agreement, for the mutual benefit, directly and indirectly, of each of the Borrowers and in consideration of the undertakings of each of the Borrowers to accept joint and several liability for the obligations of each of them.

(b)  Each of the Borrowers, jointly and severally, hereby irrevocably and unconditionally accepts, not merely as a surety but also as a co debtor, joint and several liability with the other Borrower with respect to the payment and performance of all of the Obligations, it being the intention of the parties hereto that all of the Obligations shall be the joint and several obligations of each of the Borrowers without preferences or distinction among them.

(c)  If and to the extent that any of the Borrowers shall fail to make any payment with respect to any of the obligations hereunder or under any Loan Document as and when due or to perform any of such obligations in accordance with the terms thereof, then in each such event, the other Borrower will make such payment with respect to, or perform, such obligation.

(d)  The obligations of each Borrower under the provisions of this Section 2.25 constitute the absolute, irrevocable and unconditional, full recourse obligations of such Borrower, enforceable against it to the full extent of its properties and assets, irrespective of the validity, regularity or enforceability of this Agreement or any other circumstances whatsoever.

(e)  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, each Borrower hereby waives notice of acceptance of its joint and several liability, notice of any Loans made pursuant to this Agreement, notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default or of any demand for any payment under this Agreement, notice of any action at any time taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, or any of them, under or in respect of any of the Obligations, any requirement of diligence or to mitigate damages and, generally, all demands, notices and other formalities of every kind in connection with this Agreement.  Each Borrower hereby assents to, and waives notice of, any extension or postponement of the time for the payment of any of the Obligations, the acceptance of any partial payment thereon, any waiver, consent or other action or acquiescence by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, or any of them, at any time or times in respect of any default by any Borrower in the performance or satisfaction of any term, covenant, condition or provision of this Agreement, any and all other indulgences whatsoever by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, or any of them, in respect of any of the Obligations, and the taking, addition, substitution or release, in whole or in part, at any time or times, of any security for any of such Obligations or the addition, substitution or release, in whole or in part, of any Borrower.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Borrower assents to any other action or delay in acting or any failure to act on the part of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, or any of them, with respect to the failure by any Borrower to comply with any of its respective Obligations, including, without limitation, any failure strictly or diligently to assert any right or to pursue any remedy or to comply fully with applicable laws or regulations thereunder which might, but for the provisions of this Section 2.25, afford grounds for terminating, discharging or relieving such Borrower, in whole or in part, from any of its obligations under this Section 2.25, it being the intention of each Borrower that, so long as any of the Obligations hereunder remain unsatisfied, the obligations of such Borrower under this Section 2.25 shall not be discharged except by

-48-

 


 

performance and then only to the extent of such performance and then only to the extent of such performance.  The obligations of each Borrower under this Section 2.25 shall not be diminished or rendered unenforceable by any winding up, reorganization, arrangement, liquidation, reconstruction or similar proceeding with respect to any reconstruction or similar proceeding with respect to any Borrower or the Administrative Agent or any Lender, or any of them.  The joint and several liability of the Borrowers hereunder shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding any absorption, merger, amalgamation or any other change whatsoever in the name, membership, constitution or place of formation of any of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent or any Lender, or any of them.

(f)  The provisions of this Section 2.25 are made for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, and may be enforced by any such Person from time to time against any of the Borrowers as often as occasion therefor may arise and without requirement on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, successor or assign first to marshal any of its or their claims or to exercise any of its or their rights against any Borrower or to exhaust any remedies available to it or them against any Borrower or to resort to any other source or means of obtaining payment of any of the Obligations or to elect any other remedy.  The provisions of this Section 2.25 shall remain in effect until all of the Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full or otherwise fully satisfied.  If at any time, any payment, or any part thereof, made in respect of any of the Obligations, is rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned by the Administrative Agent or any Lender upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any Borrower, or otherwise, the provisions of this Section 2.25 will forthwith be reinstated and in effect as though such payment had not been made.

(g)  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained herein or in any other Loan Document, to the extent the obligations of any Borrower shall be adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, without limitation, because of any applicable state or federal law relating to fraudulent conveyances or transfers) then the obligations of such Borrower hereunder shall be limited to the maximum amount that is permissible under applicable law (whether federal or state and including, without limitation, the Bankruptcy Code of the United States and the Australian Corporations Act).

(h)  Each Borrower hereby agrees that it will not enforce any of its rights of contribution or subrogation against the other Borrower with respect to any liability incurred by it hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents, any payments made by it to the Administrative Agent or any Lender with respect to any of the Obligations until such time as all of the Obligations have been paid in full in cash.  Any claim which any Borrower may have against the other Borrower with respect to any payments to the Administrative Agent or any Lender hereunder or under any other Loan Documents is hereby expressly made subordinate and junior in right of payment, including without limitation, as to any increases in the Obligations, to the prior payment in full in cash of the Obligations and, in the event of any insolvency, bankruptcy, receivership, liquidation, reorganization or other similar proceeding under the laws of any jurisdiction relating to any Borrower, its debts or its assets, whether voluntary or involuntary, all such Obligations shall be paid in full in cash before any payment or distribution of any character, whether in cash, securities or other property, shall be made to the other Borrower therefor.

Each Borrower hereby appoints the Operating Partnership to act as its agent for all purposes under this Agreement (including, without limitation, with respect to all matters related to the borrowing and repayment of Loans) and agrees that (i) the Operating Partnership may execute such documents on behalf of the Borrowers as the Operating Partnership deems appropriate in its sole discretion and the Borrowers shall be obligated by all of the terms of any such document executed on their behalf, (ii) any notice or communication delivered by the Administrative Agent or any Lender to the Operating Partnership shall be deemed delivered to each Borrower and (iii) the Administrative Agent or the Lenders may accept, and be permitted to rely on, any document, instrument or agreement executed by the Operating Partnership on behalf of the Borrowers.

2.26  Limitation of Liability of MPT Australia Trustee.  

(a)  MPT Australia Trustee enters into and performs this document and the transactions contemplated by it only as trustee of MPT Australia Realty Trust and in no other capacity.  To the extent permitted by law, the liability of MPT Australia Trustee to pay any amount or satisfy any obligation under or in connection with this document is limited to the extent to which MPT Australia Trustee is actually indemnified out of the assets of MPT Australia.  This limitation applies despite any other provision of this document and extends to all liabilities and obligations of MPT Australia Trustee in any way connected with any representation, warranty, conduct, omission, agreement or transaction related to this document or its performance.

(b)  No party to this document may sue MPT Australia Trustee in any capacity other than as trustee of MPT Australia, seek the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, administrator or other similar person to MPT Australia Trustee or seek to prove in any liquidation, administration or arrangement of or affecting MPT Australia Trustee other than in its capacity as trustee of MPT Australia Trustee and in respect of the assets of MPT Australia from which MPT Australia Trustee is actually indemnified.

(c)  The provisions of this Section 2.26 do not apply to any obligation or liability of MPT Australia Trustee to the extent that MPT Australia Trustee’s right to be indemnified out of the assets of MPT Australia Trustee has been reduced by fraud, negligence or a material breach of trust provided that nothing in this paragraph (c) shall make MPT Australia Trustee liable to any claim for an amount greater than that which each person would have been able to recover from the assets of MPT Australia Trustee were it not for the reduction of MPT Australia Trustee’s right of indemnity.

(d)  MPT Australia Trustee is not obliged to do or refrain from doing anything under this document (including, without limitation, incur any liability or enter into any document) unless MPT Australia Trustee’s liability is limited in the same manner as set out in this Section 2.26.

4.1  Financial Condition.  

(a)  The pro forma covenant compliance certificate described in Section 5.2(k), copies of which have heretofore been furnished to each Lender, has been prepared giving effect (as if such events had occurred on such date) to (i) the Loans to be made on the Funding Date and the use of proceeds thereof, (ii) the Acquisition and (iii) the payment of fees and expenses in connection with the foregoing.  Such certificate has been prepared based on the best information available to the Borrowers as of the date of delivery thereof, and presents fairly in all material respects on a pro forma basis the estimated financial covenant compliance of Holdings and its consolidated Subsidiaries as at the Funding Date, assuming that the events specified in the preceding sentence had actually occurred at such date.

(b)  The audited consolidated balance sheets of Holdings and its Subsidiaries as at December 31, 2018, and the related consolidated statements of income and of cash flows for the fiscal year ended on such date, reported on by and accompanied by an unqualified report from PricewaterhouseCoopers, present fairly in all material respects the consolidated financial condition of Holdings and its Subsidiaries as at such date, and the consolidated results of its operations and its consolidated cash flows for the fiscal year then ended.  The unaudited consolidated balance sheet of Holdings and its Subsidiaries as at September 30, 2018, and the related unaudited consolidated statements of income and cash flows for the three-month period ended on such date, present fairly in all material respects the consolidated financial condition of Holdings and its Subsidiaries as at such date, and the consolidated results of its operations and its consolidated cash flows for the three-month period then ended (subject to normal year-end audit adjustments).  All such financial statements, including the related schedules and notes thereto, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP applied consistently throughout the periods involved (except as approved by the aforementioned firm of accountants and disclosed therein and except for the lack of footnotes with interim statements).  No Group Member has any material Guarantee Obligations, contingent liabilities and liabilities for taxes, or any long‑term leases or unusual forward or long‑term commitments, including any interest rate or foreign currency swap or exchange transaction or other obligation in respect of derivatives, that are not reflected in the most recent financial statements referred to in this paragraph.  

4.2  No Change.  Since December 31, 2018, there has been no development or event that has had or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

4.3  Existence; Compliance with Law.  Each Group Member (a) is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, (b) has the power and authority, and the legal right, to own and operate its property, to lease the property it operates as lessee and to conduct the business in which it is currently engaged except to the extent that its failure could not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, (c) is duly qualified as a foreign corporation or other organization and in good standing under the laws of each jurisdiction where its ownership, lease or operation of property or the conduct of its business requires such qualification, except to the extent that its failure to be so qualified could not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, and (d) is in compliance with all Requirements of Law except to the extent that the failure to comply therewith could not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

4.5  No Legal Bar.  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the borrowings hereunder and the use of the proceeds thereof will not violate any Requirement of Law or any Contractual Obligation of any Group Member, except for any such violation which could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, and will not result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien on any of their respective properties or revenues pursuant to any Requirement of Law or any such Contractual Obligation.  No Requirement of Law or Contractual Obligation applicable to any Group Member could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

4.9  Intellectual Property.  Each Group Member owns, or is licensed to use, all Intellectual Property necessary for the conduct of its business as currently conducted, except where the failure to have any such rights, either individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  No material claim has been asserted and is pending by any Person challenging or questioning the use of any Intellectual Property or the validity or effectiveness of any Intellectual Property, nor does Holdings or either Borrower know of any valid basis for any such claim, which, either individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  To the knowledge of Borrowers, the use of Intellectual Property by each Group Member does not infringe on the rights of any Person in any material respect.

4.10  Taxes.  Each Group Member has filed or caused to be filed all material Federal, state and other tax returns that are required to be filed and has paid all taxes shown to be due and payable on said returns or on any assessments made against it or any of its property and all other taxes, fees or other charges imposed on it or any of its property by any Governmental Authority (other than any the amount or validity of which are currently being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and with respect to which reserves in conformity with GAAP have been provided on the books of the relevant Group Member); no tax Lien has been filed, and, to the knowledge of Holdings and the Borrowers, no claim is being asserted, that any such tax, fee or other charge is past due or delinquent.

4.13  ERISA.  Neither a Reportable Event nor an “accumulated funding deficiency” (within the meaning of Section 412 of the Code or Section 302 of ERISA) has occurred during the five‑year period prior to the date on which this representation is made or deemed made with respect to any Single Employer Plan or Multiemployer Plan, and, except as, in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, each Plan has complied in all material respects with the applicable provisions of ERISA and the Code.  No termination of a Single Employer Plan or Multiemployer Plan has occurred, and no Lien in favor of the PBGC or such a Plan has arisen, during such five-year period.  The present value of all accrued benefits under each Single Employer Plan that is a “pension plan” within the meaning of Section 3(2) of ERISA (based

(f)  the Business and all operations of any Group Member at the Properties are, and have been, in compliance, with all applicable Environmental Laws, and there is no violation of any Environmental Law with respect to the Properties or the Business; and

9.6  Non-Reliance on Agents and Other Lenders.  Each Lender expressly acknowledges that neither the Agents nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys‑in‑fact or affiliates have made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by any Agent hereafter taken, including any review of the affairs of a Loan Party or any affiliate of a Loan Party, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by any Agent to any Lender.  Each Lender represents to the Agents that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent, any Arranger or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Loan Parties and their affiliates and made its own decision to make its Loans hereunder and enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent, any Arranger or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and to make such investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Loan Parties and their affiliates.  Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the business, operations, property, condition (financial or otherwise), prospects or creditworthiness of any Loan Party or any affiliate of a Loan Party that may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys‑in‑fact or affiliates.

9.7  Indemnification.  To the extent that the Borrowers fail to pay any amount required to be paid by them to the Administrative Agent under Section 10.5, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s Delayed Draw Term Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such.

9.8  Agent in Its Individual Capacity.  Each Agent and its affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with any Loan Party as though such Agent were not an Agent.  With respect to its Loans made or renewed by it, each Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as any Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not an Agent, and the terms “Lender” and “Lenders” shall include each Agent in its individual capacity.

9.9  Successor Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent may resign as Administrative Agent upon ten (10) days’ notice to the Lenders and the Operating Partnership.  If the Administrative Agent shall resign as Administrative Agent under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, then the Required Lenders shall appoint from among the Lenders a successor agent for the Lenders, which successor agent shall (unless an Event of Default under Section 8(a) or Section 8(f) with respect to either of the Borrowers shall have occurred and be continuing) be subject to approval by the Operating Partnership (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), whereupon such successor agent shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of the Administrative Agent, and the term “Administrative Agent” shall mean such successor agent effective upon such appointment and approval, and the former Administrative Agent’s rights, powers and duties as Administrative Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the part of such former Administrative Agent or any of the parties to this Agreement or any holders of the Loans.  If no successor agent has accepted appointment as Administrative Agent by the date that is ten (10) days following a retiring Administrative Agent’s notice of resignation, the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective, and the Lenders shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor agent as provided for above.  After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 9 and Section 10.05 shall continue to inure to its benefit, and to the benefit of its sub‑agents and their respective Related Parties, in each case, as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them (i) while the retiring Administrative Agent was acting as Administrative Agent under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and (ii) after such resignation for as long as any of them continues to act in any capacity hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, including in respect of any actions taken in connection with transferring the agency to any successor Administrative Agent.

9.10  Other Agents.  The Co-Syndication Agents and the Arrangers shall not have any duties or responsibilities hereunder in its capacity as such.

(b)  (i)  Subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (b)(ii) below, any Lender may assign to one or more Persons that are Eligible Assignees (each, an “Assignee”) all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans at the time owing to it) with the prior written consent of:

(A) the Operating Partnership (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), provided that no consent of the Operating Partnership shall be required for an assignment to a Lender, an affiliate of a Lender, an Approved Fund (as defined below) or, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any other Person that is an Eligible Assignee; and provided further that the Operating Partnership shall be deemed to have consented to an assignment unless it shall have objected thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received notice thereof; and

(B) the Administrative Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

(ii)Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

(A) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender, an affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitments or Loans, the amount of the Commitments or Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than AUD5,000,000 unless the Operating Partnership and the Administrative Agent otherwise consent, provided that (1) no such consent of the Operating Partnership shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and (2) such amounts shall be aggregated in respect of each Lender and its affiliates or Approved Funds, if any;

-92-

 


 

(B) the assigning Lender and the Assignee party to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500;

(C) the Assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire; and

(D) no assignments shall be permitted (other than by Bank of America) until the earlier of (1) the completion of the primary syndication of the Delayed Draw Term Facility (as determined by BofA Securities, Inc.) and (2) 90 days after the Funding Date.

(iii)Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (b)(iv) below, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.18, 2.19, 2.20 and 10.5).  Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 10.6 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (c) of this Section.

(iv)The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain at one of its offices a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amount of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”).  The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, absent manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary.  The Register shall be available for inspection by any Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.  The obligations of the Borrowers under the Loan Documents are registered obligations and the right, title and interest of the Lenders and their Assignees in and to such obligations shall be transferable only upon notation of such transfer in the Register. This Section 10.6(b)(iv) shall be construed so that such obligations are at all times maintained in “registered from” within the meaning of Sections 163(f), 871(h)(2) and 881(c)(2) of the Code and any related regulations (and any other relevant or successor provisions of the Code or such regulations).

(v)Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Lender and an Assignee, the Assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the Assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register.  No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph.

(c)  (i)Any Lender may, without the consent of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (other than Holdings, any Borrower or any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates) or a natural person or a holding company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural person (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (C) the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.  Any agreement pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver that (1) requires the consent of each Lender directly affected thereby pursuant to the proviso to the second sentence of Section 10.1 and (2) directly affects such Participant.  Subject to paragraph (c)(ii) of this Section, the Borrowers agree that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.18, 2.19 and 2.20 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section.  To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.7(b) as though it were a Lender, provided such Participant shall be subject to Section 10.7(a) as though it were a Lender.  Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any Commitments, Loans, or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.  The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.  The obligations of Borrowers under the Loan Documents are registered obligations and the right, title and interest of the Lenders and their Participants in and to such obligations shall be transferable only upon notation of such transfer in the Participant Register. This Section 10.6(c)(i) shall be construed so that such obligations are at all times maintained in “registered from” within the meaning of Sections 163(f), 871(h)(2) and 881(c)(2) of the Code and any related regulations (and any other relevant or successor provisions of the Code or such regulations).

-94-

 


 

(ii)Each Participant shall agree to be subject to the provisions of Section 2.22 as though it were a Lender.  A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.18 or 2.19 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Borrowers’ prior written consent, which consent specifically refers to this Section 10.6(c)(ii).  Any Participant that is not a U.S. Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.19 unless such Participant complies with Section 2.19(f).

(d)  Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or any other central bank having jurisdiction over such Lender, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or Assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

(e)  The Borrowers, upon receipt of written notice from the relevant Lender, agrees to issue Notes to any Lender requiring Notes to facilitate transactions of the type described in paragraph (d) above.

(f)  Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Conduit Lender may assign any or all of the Loans it may have funded hereunder to its designating Lender without the consent of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent and without regard to the limitations set forth in Section 10.6(b).  Each of Holdings, each Borrower, each Lender and the Administrative Agent hereby confirms that it will not institute against a Conduit Lender or join any other Person in instituting against a Conduit Lender any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceeding under any state bankruptcy or similar law, for one year and one day after the payment in full of the latest maturing commercial paper note issued by such Conduit Lender; provided, however, that each Lender designating any Conduit Lender hereby agrees to indemnify, save and hold harmless each other party hereto for any loss, cost, damage or expense arising out of its inability to institute such a proceeding against such Conduit Lender during such period of forbearance.

(g)  Disqualified Institutions.  (i) No assignment or participation shall be made to any Person that was a Disqualified Institution as of the date (the “Trade Date”) on which the assigning Lender entered into a binding agreement to sell and assign or grant a participation in all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to such Person (unless the Operating Partnership has consented to such assignment or participation in writing in its sole and absolute discretion, in which case such Person will not be considered a Disqualified Institution for the purpose of such assignment or participation).  For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to any assignee or Participant that becomes a Disqualified Institution after the applicable Trade Date (including as a result of the delivery of a notice pursuant to, and/or the expiration of the notice period referred to in, the definition of “Disqualified Institution”), (x) such assignee or Participant shall not retroactively be disqualified from becoming a Lender or Participant and (y) the execution by the Operating Partnership of an Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignee will not by itself result in such assignee no longer being considered a Disqualified Institution. Any assignment or participation in violation of this clause (g)(i) shall not be void, but the other provisions of this clause (g) shall apply.

-95-

 


 

(ii)If any assignment or participation is made to any Disqualified Institution without the Borrowers’ prior written consent in violation of clause (i) above or if any Person becomes a Disqualified Institution after the applicable Trade Date, the Operating Partnership may, at the sole expense and effort of the Borrowers, upon notice to the applicable Disqualified Institution and the Administrative Agent, (A) terminate any Commitment of such Disqualified Institution and repay all obligations of the Borrowers owing to such Disqualified Institution in connection with such Commitment plus accrued interest, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, (B) in the case of outstanding Loans held by Disqualified Institutions, purchase or prepay such Loans by paying the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest fees and other amounts payable to it hereunder and/or (C) require such Disqualified Institution to assign, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in this Section 10.6), all of its interest, rights and obligations under this Agreement to one or more Eligible Assignees at the principal amount thereof plus accrued interest, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder.

(iii)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Disqualified Institutions to whom an assignment or participation is made in violation of clause (i) above (A) will not (x) have the right to receive information, reports or other materials provided to Lenders by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, (y) attend or participate in meetings attended by the Lenders and the Administrative Agent, or (z) access any electronic site established for the Lenders or confidential communications from counsel to or financial advisors of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders and (B) for purposes of any consent to any amendment, waiver or modification of, or any action under, and for the purpose of any direction to the Administrative Agent or any Lender to undertake any action (or refrain from taking any action) under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, each Disqualified Institution will be deemed to have consented in the same proportion as the Lenders that are not Disqualified Institutions consented to such matter.

(iv)The Administrative Agent shall have the right, and the Borrowers hereby expressly authorizes the Administrative Agent, to (A) post the list of Disqualified Institutions provided by the Borrowers and any updates thereto from time to time (collectively, the “Disqualified Institution List”) on the Electronic System, including that portion of the Electronic System that is designated for “public side” Lenders and/or (B) provide the Disqualified Institution List to each Lender requesting the same.

10.7  Adjustments; Set‑off.  (a)  Except to the extent that this Agreement expressly provides for payments to be allocated to a particular Lender, if any Lender (a “Benefitted Lender”) shall receive any payment of all or part of the Obligations owing to it, or receive any collateral in respect thereof (whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by set‑off, pursuant to events or proceedings of the nature referred to in Section 8(f), or otherwise), in a greater proportion than any such payment to or collateral received by any other Lender, if any, in respect of the Obligations owing to such other Lender, such Benefitted Lender shall purchase for cash from the other Lenders a participating interest in such portion of the Obligations owing to each such other Lender, or shall provide such other Lenders with the benefits of any such collateral, as shall be necessary to cause such Benefitted Lender to share the excess payment or benefits of such collateral ratably with each of the Lenders; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or benefits is thereafter recovered from such Benefitted Lender, such purchase shall be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent of such recovery, but without interest.

-96-

 


 

(b)  In addition to any rights and remedies of the Lenders provided by law, each Lender shall have the right, without prior notice to Holdings or the Borrowers, any such notice being expressly waived by Holdings and the Borrowers to the extent permitted by applicable law, upon any amount becoming due and payable by Holdings or any Borrower hereunder (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), 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, and any other credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by such Lender or any branch or agency thereof to or for the credit or the account of Holdings or any Borrower, as the case may be.  Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent after any such setoff and application made by such Lender, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application.

10.8  Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness; Electronic Execution.  (a)This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract.  This Agreement and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof.  Except as provided in Section 5.1, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof which, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.

(b)  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by telecopy, emailed .pdf or any other electronic means that reproduces an image of the actual executed signature page shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.  The words “execution,” “signed,” “signature,” “delivery,” and words of like import in or relating to any document to be signed in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include Electronic Signatures, deliveries or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature, physical delivery thereof or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any applicable law, including the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, the New York State Electronic Signatures and Records Act, or any other similar state laws based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act.

10.9  Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

-97-

 


 

10.10  Integration.  This Agreement and the other Loan Documents represent the entire agreement of Holdings, the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof, and there are no promises, undertakings, representations or warranties by the Administrative Agent or any Lender relative to the subject matter hereof not expressly set forth or referred to herein or in the other Loan Documents.

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

10.12  Submission To Jurisdiction; Waivers.  Each of Holdings and the Borrowers hereby irrevocably and unconditionally:

(a)  submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County, Borough of Manhattan, and of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court.  Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.  

(b)  consents that any such action or proceeding may be brought in such courts and waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such action or proceeding in any such court or that such action or proceeding was brought in an inconvenient court and agrees not to plead or claim the same;

(c)  in the case of MPT Australia, irrevocably appoints the Operating Partnership as its agent for service of process in relation to any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and the Operating Partnership hereby irrevocably accepts such appointment;

(d)  agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be effected by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, to Holdings or the Borrowers, as the case may be at its address set forth in Section 10.2 or at such other address of which the Administrative Agent shall have been notified pursuant thereto;

(e)  agrees that nothing herein shall affect the right to effect service of process in any other manner permitted by law or shall limit the right to sue in any other jurisdiction; and

(f)  waives, to the maximum extent not prohibited by law, any right it may have to claim or recover in any legal action or proceeding referred to in this Section any special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages.

10.20  Interest Rate Limitation.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the interest rate applicable to any Loan, together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on such Loan under applicable law (collectively the “Charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the “Maximum Rate”) which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by the Lender holding such Loan in accordance with applicable law, the rate of interest payable in respect of such Loan hereunder, together with all Charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would have been payable in respect of such Loan but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to such Lender in respect of other Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender.

10.21  Acknowledgement and Consent to Bail-In of EEA Financial Institutions.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document or in any other agreement, arrangement or understanding among any such parties, each party hereto acknowledges that any liability of any EEA Financial Institution arising under any Loan Document may be subject to the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of an EEA Resolution Authority and agrees and consents to, and acknowledges and agrees to be bound by:

(a)  the application of any Write-Down and Conversion Powers by an EEA Resolution Authority to any such liabilities arising hereunder which may be payable to it by any party hereto that is an EEA Financial Institution; and

(b)  the effects of any Bail-In Action on any such liability, including, if applicable:

(i)a reduction in full or in part or cancellation of any such liability;

(ii)a conversion of all, or a portion of, such liability into shares or other instruments of ownership in such EEA Financial Institution, its parent entity, or a bridge institution that may be issued to it or otherwise conferred on it, and that such shares or other instruments of ownership will be accepted by it in lieu of any rights with respect to any such liability under this Agreement or any other Loan Document (provided, however, that the Operating Partnership shall be entitled to transfer, assign or waive its right to receive any such shares or other instruments to the extent necessary or prudent to preserve its status as a REIT), to the extent permitted by applicable law; or

(iii)the variation of the terms of such liability in connection with the exercise of the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of any EEA Resolution Authority.

10.22  Australian Interest Withholding Tax.  

(a)  MPT Australia hereby confirms that no prospective Lender whose name was disclosed to it before the Closing Date was known or suspected by it to be an Offshore Associate of MPT Australia or an Associate of any other prospective Lender.  MPT Australia will immediately advise the Administrative Agent and the Lenders if any prospective Lender disclosed to it after the Closing Date is known or suspected by it to be an Offshore Associate of MPT Australia or an Associate of any other prospective Lender.

-101-

 


 

(b)  BofA Securities, Inc., in its capacity as a joint lead arranger for the Facility, represents and warrants to MPT Australia that prior to the Closing Date: (i) it made invitations on behalf of MPT Australia to become a Lender under this Agreement to at least ten Persons (“Offerees”); (ii) its relevant officers who were involved on a day to day basis in syndicating the Facility (the “Officers”) believe that each Offeree, as at the date the relevant invitation was made to such Offeree, carried on the business of providing finance or investing or dealing in securities in the course of operating in financial markets; (iii) none of the Offerees are, to the knowledge of the Officers, Associates of any of the other Offerees, for the purposes of section 128F(3A)(a) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth) (Australia); and (iv) it has not made offers to become a Lender under this Agreement to any Person whom its Officers know to be Offshore Associates of MPT Australia.

(c)  Each Lender represents and warrants to the Loan Parties that, if it received an invitation under paragraph (b) above, at the time it received the invitation it was carrying on the business of providing finance, or investing or dealing in securities, in the course of operating in financial markets.

(d)  BofA Securities, Inc. and each Lender will provide to the Loan Parties when reasonably requested any factual information in its possession or which it is reasonably able to provide to assist the Loan Parties to demonstrate (based upon tax advice received by the Loan Parties) that section 128F of the Australian Tax Act has been satisfied where to do so will not, in the reasonable opinion of BofA Securities, Inc. or such Lender (as applicable), breach any law or regulation or any duty of confidence.

(e)  If, for any reason, the requirements of section 128F of the Australian Tax Act have not been satisfied in relation to interest payable on Loans (except to an Offshore Associate of the Loan Parties), then on request by the Administrative Agent, any Joint Lead Arranger or the Loan Parties, each party shall co-operate and take steps reasonably requested with a view to satisfying those requirements (a) where a Lender breaches paragraph (c) above, at the cost of that Lender or (b) in all other cases, at the cost of the Loan Parties.

(f)  The parties agree that this Agreement is a “syndicated facility agreement” for the purposes of section 128F(11)(a) of the Australian Tax Act.

10.23  Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs.  To the extent that the Loan Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for any Swap Agreement or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support, “QFC Credit Support”, and each such QFC, a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Loan Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States):

(a) In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Loan Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Loan Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that rights and remedies of the parties with respect to a Defaulting Lender shall in no event affect the rights of any Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.

(b)  As used in this Section 10.23, the following terms have the following meanings:

BHC Act Affiliate” of a party means an “affiliate” (as such term is defined under, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 1841(k)) of such party.

Covered Entity” means any of the following:  (i) a “covered entity” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 252.82(b); (ii) a “covered bank” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 47.3(b); or (iii) a “covered FSI” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 382.2(b).

Default Right” has the meaning assigned to that term in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. §§ 252.81, 47.2 or 382.1, as applicable.

QFC has the meaning assigned to the term “qualified financial contract” in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 5390(c)(8)(D).
