5.1.

Organization; Power and Authority.

The Obligor and each Partner is a corporation or partnership, as the case may be, duly organized, validly existing and, where legally applicable, in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation, and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation or partnership and, where legally applicable, is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is required by law, other than those jurisdictions as to which the failure to be so qualified or in good standing could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The Obligor and each Partner has the corporate power and authority to own or hold under lease the properties it purports to own or hold under lease, to transact the business it transacts and proposes to transact, to execute and deliver this Agreement (in the case of the Obligor and the Partners) and the Notes (in the case of the Company) and to perform the provisions of the Finance Documents to which it is a party.

The Finance Documents to which the Obligor and each Partner each is a party have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or partnership action on the part of the Obligor or such Partner, as the case may be, and such Finance Documents (other than the Notes) constitute, and upon execution and delivery thereof each Note will constitute, a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Obligor or such Partner, as the case may be, enforceable against the Obligor or such Partner in accordance with its terms, except, in each case, as such enforceability may be limited by (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (ii) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).

 

5.3.

(b) information that the Obligor or either Partner determines after consultation with counsel qualified to advise on such matters (which may be in-house counsel) is legally privileged and the disclosure of which would waive such privilege to the detriment of the Obligor or either Partner; and

(c) information that, notwithstanding the confidentiality requirements of Section 22, the Obligor or either Partner is prohibited from disclosing by the terms of an obligation of confidentiality contained in any agreement with any non-Affiliate binding upon the Obligor or such Partner, as applicable, and not entered into in contemplation of this clause (c), provided that the Obligor and the Partners shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain consent from the party in whose favor the obligation of confidentiality was made to permit the disclosure of the relevant information and provided further that the Obligor or the applicable Partner, as the case may be, have received a written opinion of counsel (which may be in-house counsel) confirming that disclosure of such information without consent from such other contractual party would constitute a breach or would result in a substantial risk of breach of such agreement.

Promptly after a request therefor from any holder of Notes that is an Institutional Investor, the Obligor or the applicable Partner will provide such holder with a written opinion of counsel (which may be in-house counsel and which may be addressed to the Obligor or such Partner, as applicable) relied upon as to any requested information that the Obligor or the applicable Partner, as the case may be, is prohibited from disclosing to such holder under circumstances described in this Section 7.4.

As provided therein, the entire unpaid principal balance of the Series D Notes, the Series E Notes, the Series F Notes and the Series G Notes shall be due and payable on July 25, 2019, July 25, 2022, July 25, 2024, and July 25, 2022, respectively.

 

8.2.

The Company may, at its option, upon notice as provided below, prepay at any time all, or from time to time any part of, the Notes, in an amount not less than 5% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding in the case of a partial prepayment, at 100% of the principal amount so prepaid, and the Make-Whole Amount determined for the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount. The Company will give each holder of Notes written notice of each optional prepayment under this Section 8.2 not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days prior to the date fixed for such prepayment. Each such notice shall specify such date (which shall be a Business Day), the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be prepaid on such date, the principal amount of each Note held by such holder to be prepaid (determined in accordance with Section 8.7), and the interest to be paid on the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount being prepaid, and shall be accompanied by a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer as to the estimated Make-Whole Amount due in connection with such prepayment (calculated as if the date of such notice were the date of the prepayment), setting forth the details of such computation. Two Business Days prior to such prepayment, the Company shall deliver to each holder of Notes a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer specifying the calculation of such Make-Whole Amount as of the specified prepayment date.

 

20


8.3.

Prepayment for Tax Reasons.

If at any time as a result of a Change in Tax Law (as defined below) the Company, the Guarantor or either Partner (assuming, in the case of the Guarantor or such Partner, that the Guarantor or such Partner, as applicable, is required to make a payment pursuant to Section 14) is or becomes obligated to make any Additional Payments (as defined below) in respect of any payment of interest on account of any of the Notes, the Company may give the holders of all affected Notes irrevocable written notice (each, a “Tax Prepayment Notice”) of the prepayment of such affected Notes on a specified prepayment date (which shall be a Business Day not less than 30 days nor more than 60 days after the date of such notice) and the circumstances giving rise to the obligation of the Company, the Guarantor or either Partner to make any Additional Payments and the amount thereof and stating that all of the affected Notes shall be prepaid on the date of such prepayment at 100% of the principal amount so prepaid together with interest accrued thereon to the date of such prepayment plus an amount equal to the Modified Make-Whole Amount for each such Note, except in the case of an affected Note if the holder of such Note shall, by written notice given to the Company no more than 20 days after receipt of the Tax Prepayment Notice, reject such prepayment of such Note (each, a “Rejection Notice”). Such Tax Prepayment Notice shall be accompanied by a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer as to the estimated Modified Make-Whole Amount due in connection with such prepayment (calculated as if the date of such notice were the date of the prepayment), setting forth the details of such computation. The form of Rejection Notice shall also accompany the Tax Prepayment Notice and shall state with respect to each Note covered thereby that execution and delivery thereof by the holder of such Note shall operate as a permanent waiver of such holder’s right to receive the Additional Payments arising as a result of the circumstances described in the Tax Prepayment Notice in respect of all future payments of interest on such Note (but not of such holder’s right to receive any Additional Payments that arise out of circumstances not described in the Tax Prepayment Notice or which exceed the amount of the Additional Payment described in the Tax Prepayment Notice), which waiver shall be binding upon all subsequent transferees of such Note. The Tax Prepayment Notice having been given as aforesaid to each holder of the affected Notes, the principal amount of such Notes together with interest accrued thereon to the date of such prepayment plus the Modified Make-Whole Amount shall become due and payable on such prepayment date, except in the case of Notes the holders of which shall timely give a Rejection Notice as aforesaid. Two Business Days prior to such prepayment, the Company shall deliver to each holder of a Note being so prepaid a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer specifying the calculation of such Modified Make-Whole Amount as of such prepayment date.

No prepayment of the Notes pursuant to this Section 8.3 shall affect the obligation of the Obligor and the Partners to pay Additional Payments in respect of any payment made on or prior to the date of such prepayment. For purposes of this Section 8.3, any holder of more than one affected Note may act separately with respect to each affected Note so held (with the effect that a holder of more than one affected Note may accept such offer with respect to one or more affected Notes so held and reject such offer with respect to one or more other affected Notes so held).

 

21


The Company may not offer to prepay or prepay Notes pursuant to this Section 8.3 (a) if a Default or Event of Default then exists, (b) until the Obligor or the Partners, as the case may be, shall have taken commercially reasonable steps to mitigate the requirement to make the related Additional Payments or (c) if the obligation to make such Additional Payments directly results or resulted from actions taken by any Transaction Party or any other Member (other than actions required to be taken under applicable law), and any Tax Prepayment Notice given pursuant to this Section 8.3 shall certify to the foregoing and describe such mitigation steps, if any.

For purposes of this Section 8.3: “Additional Payments means additional amounts required to be paid to a holder of any Note pursuant to Section 13 by reason of a Change in Tax Law; and a “Change in Tax Law means (individually or collectively with one or more prior changes) (i) an amendment to, or change in, any law, treaty, rule or regulation of Australia or any political subdivision thereof after the date of the Closing, or an amendment to, or change in, an official interpretation or application of such law, treaty, rule or regulation after the date of the Closing, which amendment or change is in force and continuing and meets the opinion and certification requirements described below or (ii) in the case of any other jurisdiction that becomes a Taxing Jurisdiction after the date of the Closing, an amendment to, or change in, any law, treaty, rule or regulation of such jurisdiction, or an amendment to, or change in, an official interpretation or application of such law, treaty, rule or regulation, in any case after such jurisdiction shall have become a Taxing Jurisdiction, which amendment or change is in force and continuing and meets such opinion and certification requirements. No such amendment or change shall constitute a Change in Tax Law unless the same would in the opinion of the Obligor or either Partner, as the case may be (which shall be evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate of the Obligor or such Partner and supported by a written opinion of counsel having recognized expertise in the field of taxation in the Taxing Jurisdiction (which may be in-house counsel), both of which shall be delivered to all holders of the Notes prior to or concurrently with the Tax Prepayment Notice in respect of such Change in Tax Law), affect the deduction or require the withholding of any Tax imposed by such Taxing Jurisdiction on any payment payable on the Notes.

 

8.4.

Each holder of a Note shall notify the Company of such holder’s acceptance or rejection of such offer by giving written notice of such acceptance or rejection to the Company on a date at least ten days prior to the Change of Control Prepayment Date (such date ten days prior to the Change of Control Prepayment Date being the “Change of Control Response Date”). The Company shall prepay on the Change of Control Prepayment Date all of the Notes held by each holder that has accepted

 

22


such offer in accordance with this Section 8.4 at a price in respect of each such Note held by such holder equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, together with interest accrued thereon to the Change of Control Prepayment Date. The failure by a holder of any Note to respond to such offer in writing on or before the Change of Control Response Date shall be deemed to be a rejection of such offer.

 

8.5.

Prepayments in Connection with Asset Dispositions.

If the Company is required to offer to prepay Notes in accordance with (and in the aggregate amount calculated pursuant to) Section 10.5(i), the Company will give prompt written notice thereof to the holders of all Notes then outstanding, which notice shall (i) refer specifically to this Section 8.5 and describe in reasonable detail the Disposition giving rise to such offer to prepay Notes, (ii) specify the principal amount of each Note held by such holder offered to be prepaid (if the Notes are offered to be prepaid in part, determined in accordance with Section 8.7, the Ratable Amount), (iii) specify a Business Day for such prepayment not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days after the date of such notice (the Disposition Prepayment Date) and specify the Disposition Response Date (as defined below) and (iv) offer to prepay on the Disposition Prepayment Date the outstanding principal amount of each Note (or, if the Notes are offered to be prepaid in part, the Ratable Amount of each Note), together with interest accrued thereon to the Disposition Prepayment Date (the Prepayment Amount). Each holder of a Note shall notify the Company of such holder’s acceptance or rejection of such offer by giving written notice of such acceptance or rejection to the Company on a date at least ten days prior to the Disposition Prepayment Date (such date ten days prior to the Disposition Prepayment Date being the Disposition Response Date). The Company shall prepay on the Disposition Prepayment Date the Prepayment Amount with respect to each Note held by the holders who have accepted such offer in accordance with this Section 8.5. The failure by a holder of any Note to respond to such offer in writing on or before the Disposition Response Date shall be deemed to be a rejection of such offer. If any holder of a Note rejects or is deemed to have rejected any offer of prepayment with respect to such Note in accordance with this Section 8.5, then, for purposes of determining compliance with Section 10.5(i), the Company nevertheless shall be deemed to have made a prepayment of Indebtedness in an amount equal to the Ratable Amount with respect to such Note.

 

8.6.

Prepayment in Connection with a Noteholder Sanctions Violation.

Within five Business Days after the Company’s receipt of notice from any Affected Noteholder that a Noteholder Sanctions Violation has occurred with respect to such Affected Noteholder as a result of any OFAC Event, which notice shall (i) refer specifically to this Section 8.6 and describe in reasonable detail such Noteholder Sanctions Violation and such OFAC Event and (ii) be accompanied by an opinion of nationally recognized independent counsel in the appropriate jurisdiction to the effect that a Noteholder Sanctions Violation shall have occurred with respect to such Affected Noteholder, the Company shall by written notice (a Sanctions Prepayment Notice) deliver to such Affected Noteholder an offer to prepay on a Business Day not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days after the date of such Sanctions Prepayment Notice (the Sanctions Prepayment Date) the Notes of such Affected Noteholder, at 100% of the principal amount thereof, together with interest accrued thereon to the Sanctions

If such Affected Noteholder has accepted the Company’s prepayment offer in accordance with this Section 8.6, the Company shall prepay on the Sanctions Prepayment Date all of the Notes held by such holder at a price in respect of each such Note held by such holder equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, together with interest accrued thereon to the Sanctions Prepayment Date. The failure by such Affected Noteholder to respond to such offer in writing on or before the Sanctions Prepayment Response Date shall be deemed to be a rejection of such offer.

No prepayment of any Note shall be permitted pursuant to this Section 8.6 as a result of any OFAC Event if (a) a Prohibited Subsequent Action shall have occurred with respect to such OFAC Event pursuant to Section 10.4 and (b) the Notes shall have been declared due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1 as a result thereof.

Promptly, and in any event within five Business Days, upon the Company’s receipt of notice from any Affected Noteholder that a Noteholder Sanctions Violation shall have occurred with respect to such Noteholder as a result of any OFAC Event, the Company shall forward a copy of such notice to each holder of Notes.

In the case of each partial prepayment of the Notes pursuant to Section 8.2 and in the case of each offer of partial prepayment of the Notes pursuant to Section 8.5 or clause (b) of the first sentence of Section 8.9, the Company shall prepay or offer to prepay, as the case may be, the same percentage of the unpaid principal amount of the Notes of each series, and the principal amount of the Notes of each series so to be prepaid or offered to be prepaid, as the case may be, shall be allocated among all of the Notes of such series at the time outstanding in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective unpaid principal amounts thereof not theretofore called for prepayment.

 

8.8.

From and after such date, unless the Company shall fail to pay such principal amount when so due and payable, together with the interest and Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, as aforesaid, interest on such principal amount shall cease to accrue. Any Note paid or prepaid in full shall be surrendered to the Company and cancelled and shall not be reissued, and no Note shall be issued in lieu of any prepaid principal amount of any Note.

Make-Whole Amount and Modified Make-Whole Amount.

(a) Make-Whole Amount and Modified Make-Whole Amount. The terms Make-Whole Amount and Modified Make-Whole Amount mean, with respect to any Note, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the Discounted Value of the Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to the Called Principal of such Note over the amount of such Called Principal, provided that neither the Make-Whole Amount nor the Modified Make-Whole Amount may in any event be less than zero. For the purposes of determining the Make-Whole Amount and the Modified Make-Whole Amount, the following terms have the following meanings:

Applicable Percentage in the case of a computation of the Modified Make-Whole Amount for purposes of Section 8.3 means 1.00% (100 basis points), and in the case of a computation of the Make-Whole Amount for any other purpose means 0.50% (50 basis points).

Called Principal means, with respect to any Note, the principal of such Note that is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 8.2 or 8.3 or has become or is declared to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1, as the context requires.

Discounted Value” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, the amount obtained by discounting all Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to such Called Principal from their respective scheduled due dates to the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in accordance with accepted financial practice and at a discount factor (applied on the same periodic basis as that on which interest on the Notes is payable) equal to the Reinvestment Yield with respect to such Called Principal.

 

25


Reinvestment Yield” means:

(I) with respect to the Called Principal of any U.S. Dollar Note, the sum of (x) the Applicable Percentage plus (y) the yield to maturity implied by (i) the yields reported as of 10:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, on the display designated as “Page PX1” (or such other display as may replace Page PX1) on Bloomberg Financial Markets for the most recently issued, actively traded, on the run U.S. Treasury securities having a maturity equal to the remaining term of such U.S. Dollar Note as of such Settlement Date, or (ii) if such yields are not reported as of such time or the yields reported as of such time are not ascertainable (including by way of interpolation), the Treasury Constant Maturity Series Yields reported, for the latest day for which such yields have been so reported as of the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H.15 (or any comparable successor publication) for U.S. Treasury securities having a constant maturity equal to the remaining term of such U.S. Dollar Note as of such Settlement Date. In the case of each determination under clause (i) or clause (ii), as the case may be, of the preceding sentence, such implied yield will be determined, if necessary, by (a) converting U.S. Treasury bill quotations to bond equivalent yields in accordance with accepted financial practice and (b) interpolating linearly between (1) the actively traded U.S. Treasury security with the maturity closest to and greater than the remaining term of such U.S. Dollar Note and (2) the actively traded U.S. Treasury security with the maturity closest to and less than the remaining term of such U.S. Dollar Note; and

(II) with respect to the Called Principal of any Series G Note, the sum of (x) the Applicable Percentage plus (y) the yield to maturity implied by the yields reported, as of 10:00 A.M. (Sydney, Australia time) on the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, on the display designated as “Page PXAU” on Bloomberg Financial Markets (or such other display as may replace “Page PXAU” on Bloomberg Financial Markets) for actively traded Australian Commonwealth government securities having a maturity equal to the remaining term of such Series G Note as of such Settlement Date (such implied yield will be determined, if necessary, by (A) converting bill quotations to bond-equivalent yields in accordance with accepted financial practice and (B) interpolating linearly between (1) the actively traded Australian Commonwealth government security with the maturity closest to and greater than the remaining term of such Series G Note and (2) the actively traded Australian Commonwealth government security with the maturity closest to and less than the remaining term of such Series G Note).

The Reinvestment Yield shall be rounded to the number of decimal places as appears in the interest rate of the applicable Note

Remaining Scheduled Payments” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, all payments of such Called Principal and interest thereon that would be due after the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal if no payment of such Called Principal were made prior to its scheduled due date, provided that if such Settlement Date is not a date on which interest payments are due to be made under the terms of the Notes, then the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued to such Settlement Date and required to be paid on such Settlement Date pursuant to Section 8.2, 8.3 or 12.1.

 

26


Settlement Date” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, the date on which such Called Principal is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 8.2 or 8.3 or has become or is declared to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1, as the context requires.

9.2.

Insurance.

The Obligor and each Partner will, and the Obligor will cause each Member to, maintain, with financially sound and reputable insurers, insurance with respect to their respective properties and businesses against such casualties and contingencies, of such types, on such terms and in such amounts (including deductibles, co-insurance and self-insurance, if adequate reserves are maintained with respect thereto) as is customary in the case of entities of established reputations engaged in the same or a similar business and similarly situated.

If the Obligor or any Member shall pay any fee or other compensation to any Person party to any Facility Agreement or the 2009 Note Agreement as an inducement to such Person to release any Member from a Guaranty or as a co-obligor or from being jointly liable, in each case, under such Facility Agreement or the 2009 Note Agreement and notification is subsequently given by the Obligor of the release of such Member from its Member Guarantee pursuant to this Section 9.8(c), such release shall not become effective until the Obligor shall have paid the same level of fee or other compensation to each holder of Notes (whether a flat fee or flat compensation or based on a percentage or other metric of outstanding obligations).

Unless waived in writing by the Required Holders within five Business Days of the holders’ receipt of such notice, each Additional Covenant set forth in such notice shall be deemed incorporated by reference into this Agreement, mutatis mutandis, as if set forth fully herein effective as of the date when such Additional Covenants became effective under the applicable Reference Agreement.

(b) Provided that no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, any Additional Covenant shall be deemed automatically (x) amended, waived or otherwise modified in this Agreement at such time as each holder of Notes shall have received notice in writing from the Obligor certifying that such Additional Covenant shall have been so amended, waived or otherwise modified under the applicable Reference Agreement (including, without limitation, as a result of the application of any provision contained therein with respect to changes in accounting principles) and (y) deleted from this Agreement at such time as each holder of Notes shall have received notice in writing from the Obligor certifying that such Additional Covenant shall have been deleted from the applicable Reference Agreement, or that the applicable Reference Agreement shall have been terminated and that no amounts are outstanding thereunder. If the Obligor or any Member shall pay any fee or other compensation to any Person party to the applicable Reference Agreement as an inducement to receiving any amendment, waiver, modification, deletion or termination that is the subject of any notice set forth in the foregoing clause (x) or (y), such amendment, waiver, modification, deletion or termination shall not become effective under this Agreement until the Obligor shall have paid the same level of fee or other compensation to each holder of Notes (whether a flat fee or flat compensation or based on a percentage or other metric of outstanding obligations or otherwise).

(c) Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Section 9.11, no covenant (however expressed) contained in this Agreement as of the date of this Agreement shall be deemed deleted from this Agreement or made less restrictive than the level set with respect to such covenant (however expressed) as of such date, unless amended or otherwise modified in accordance with Section 19.

 

30


(d) Upon the request by the Obligor or any holder of a Note, the Obligor and the holders of Notes shall enter into an additional agreement or an amendment to this Agreement (as agreed between the Obligor and the Required Holders working in good faith) evidencing any of the foregoing.

Transactions with Affiliates.

The Obligor will not, and will not permit any Member Guarantor to, enter into directly or indirectly any Material transaction or Material group of related transactions (including without limitation the purchase, lease, sale or exchange of properties of any kind or the rendering of any service) with any Affiliate (other than the Obligor or any Member Guarantor), except pursuant to the reasonable requirements of the Obligor’s or the applicable Member Guarantor’s business, as the case may be, and upon fair and reasonable terms no less favorable to the Obligor or such Member Guarantor than would be obtainable in a comparable arm’s-length transaction with a Person not an Affiliate.

 

10.2.

Merger, Consolidation, Etc.

The Obligor will not, nor will the Obligor permit any Member to, consolidate with or merge with any other Person or convey, transfer or lease all or substantially all of its assets in a single transaction or series of transactions to any Person unless:

(a) in the case of any such transaction involving the Obligor, the successor formed by such consolidation or the survivor of such merger or the Person that acquires by conveyance, transfer or lease all or substantially all of the assets of the Obligor, as the case may be, shall be a solvent corporation, partnership or limited liability company organized and existing under the laws of Australia, New Zealand or the United States or any State or political subdivision of any thereof (including in the case of the United States, the District of Columbia) or any other Permitted Jurisdiction, and, if the Obligor is not such corporation, partnership or limited liability company, such corporation, partnership or limited liability company shall have (i) executed and delivered to each holder of any Notes its assumption of the due and punctual performance and observance of each covenant and condition of this Agreement (in the capacity of both the Company and the Guarantor) and the Notes (in the capacity of the Company), (ii) such corporation, partnership or limited liability company shall have caused to be delivered to each holder of any Notes an opinion of internationally recognized independent counsel in the appropriate jurisdiction(s), or other independent counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Required Holders, to the effect that all agreements or instruments effecting such

 

31


assumption are enforceable in accordance with their terms and comply with the terms hereof and (iii) each holder of any Notes shall have received an unconditional affirmation by each Member Guarantor of its obligations under its Member Guarantee and by the Partners of their guarantees set forth herein;

(b) in the case of any such transaction involving a Member Guarantor, the successor formed by such consolidation or the survivor of such merger or the Person that acquires by conveyance, transfer or lease all or substantially all of the assets of such Member Guarantor, as the case may be, shall be (1) either Obligor, such Member Guarantor or another Member Guarantor, (2) a solvent corporation, partnership or limited liability company that is organized and existing under the laws of Australia, New Zealand or the United States or any State or political subdivision of any thereof (including in the case of the United States, the District of Columbia) or any other Permitted Jurisdiction or the jurisdiction of organization of such Member Guarantor and, if such Member Guarantor, the Obligor or another Member Guarantor is not such corporation, partnership or limited liability company, (i) such corporation, partnership or limited liability company shall have executed and delivered to each holder of Notes its assumption of the due and punctual performance and observance of each covenant and condition of the Member Guarantee of such Member Guarantor and (ii) the Obligor shall have caused to be delivered to each holder of Notes an opinion of nationally recognized independent counsel in the appropriate jurisdiction(s), or other independent counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Required Holders, to the effect that all agreements or instruments effecting such assumption are enforceable in accordance with their terms and comply with the terms hereof or (3) any other Person so long as the transaction is treated as a Disposition of all of the assets of such Member Guarantor for purposes of Section 10.5 and, based on such characterization, would be permitted pursuant to Section 10.5;

(c) in the case of any such transaction involving a Member (other than the Obligor and any Member Guarantor), the successor formed by such consolidation or the survivor of such merger or the Person that acquires by conveyance, transfer or lease all or substantially all of the assets of such Member, as the case may be, shall be (i) such Member, the Obligor or any other Member or (ii) any other Person so long as the transaction is treated as a Disposition of all of the assets of such Member for purposes of Section 10.5 and, based on such characterization, would be permitted pursuant to Section 10.5; and

(d) immediately before and immediately after giving effect to such transaction, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing.

No such conveyance, transfer or lease of substantially all of the assets of the Obligor or any Member Guarantor shall have the effect of releasing the Obligor or such Member Guarantor, as the case may be, or any successor corporation, partnership or limited liability company that shall theretofore have become such in the manner prescribed in this Section 10.2, from its liability under (x) this Agreement or the Notes (in the case of the Obligor) or (y) the applicable Member Guarantee (in the case of a Member Guarantor). To the extent that Section 8.4 would otherwise be applicable with respect to any transaction involving the FOXTEL Group, compliance by the Obligor with the provisions of this Section 10.2 shall not be deemed to excuse compliance with or otherwise prejudice Section 8.4.

 

32


10.3.

Line of Business.

Terrorism Sanctions Regulations.

The Obligor and the Partners will not, and will not permit any Member to, (a) become a Blocked Person or (b) have any investments in, or engage in any dealings or transactions with, any Blocked Person where such investments, dealings, or transactions would result in either (i) the Obligor, any Partner or any Member or any Subsidiary of the Obligor, any Partner or any Member, being in violation of any applicable law, except to the extent such violation could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect or (ii) any holder of a Note (an “Affected Noteholder”) being in violation of any laws or regulations administered or enforced by OFAC (any such violation described in this clause (ii), a “Noteholder Sanctions Violation”); provided that, a breach of clause (b)(ii) of this Section 10.4 as a result of any OFAC Event shall only occur with respect to any Noteholder Sanctions Violation if (A) the Noteholder Sanctions Violation directly resulted from actions taken by either Obligor or any Member after the occurrence of such OFAC Event (“Prohibited Subsequent Actions”) or (B) no Prohibited Subsequent Actions have occurred and (1) the Affected Noteholder with respect to such Noteholder Sanctions Violation has provided the Company with written notice of such Noteholder Sanctions Violation and such other information contemplated by Section 8.6 with respect thereto and (2) the Company shall have failed to comply with Section 8.6 with respect to such Noteholder Sanctions Violation.

Any Disposition of shares of stock of any Member shall, for purposes of this Section 10.5, be valued at an amount that bears the same proportion to the total assets of such Member as the number of such shares bears to the total number of shares of stock of such Member.

protest or further notice, all of which are hereby waived. The Obligor and each Partner acknowledges, and the parties hereto agree, that each holder of a Note has the right to maintain its investment in the Notes free from repayment by the Company (except as herein specifically provided for) and that the provision for payment of a Make-Whole Amount by the Company in the event that the Notes are prepaid or are accelerated as a result of an Event of Default, is intended to provide compensation for the deprivation of such right under such circumstances.

Other Remedies.

If any Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and irrespective of whether any Notes have become or have been declared immediately due and payable under Section 12.1, the holder of any Note at the time outstanding may proceed to protect and enforce the rights of such holder by an action at law, suit in equity or other appropriate proceeding, whether for the specific performance of any agreement contained herein or in any other Finance Document, or for an injunction against a violation of any of the terms hereof or thereof, or in aid of the exercise of any power granted hereby or thereby or by law or otherwise.

 

12.3.

Rescission.

At any time after any Notes have been declared due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1(b) or (c) (but prior to enforcement being undertaken under any Finance Document), the Required Holders, by written notice to the Company, may rescind and annul any such declaration and its consequences if (a) the Company has paid all overdue interest on the Notes, all principal of and Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, on any Notes that are due and payable and are unpaid other than by reason of such declaration, and all interest on such overdue principal and Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, and (to the extent permitted by applicable law) any overdue interest in respect of the Notes, at the Default Rate, (b) no Transaction Party nor any other Person shall have paid any amounts that have become due solely by reason of such declaration, (c) all Events of Default and Defaults, other than non-payment of amounts that have become due solely by reason of such declaration, have been cured or have been waived pursuant to Section 19, and (d) no judgment or decree has been entered for the payment of any monies due pursuant hereto or to the Notes.

No Waivers or Election of Remedies, Expenses, Etc.

No course of dealing and no delay on the part of any holder of any Note in exercising any right, power or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof or otherwise prejudice such holder’s rights, powers or remedies. No right, power or remedy conferred by this Agreement or by any Note upon any holder thereof or by any other Finance Document shall be exclusive of any other right, power or remedy referred to herein or therein or now or hereafter available at law, in equity, by statute or otherwise. Without limiting the obligations of the Obligor under Section 17, the Obligor will pay to the holder of each Note on demand such further amount as shall be sufficient to cover all costs and expenses of such holder incurred in any enforcement or collection under this Section 12, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses and disbursements.

13.

TAX INDEMNIFICATION.

All payments whatsoever under the Finance Documents to which the Obligor or either Partner is a party will be made by the Obligor or such Partner, as the case may be, in lawful currency of the United States of America (in the case of payments in respect of the U.S. Dollar Notes) or Australia (in the case of payments in respect of the Series G Notes) free and clear of, and without liability for withholding or deduction for or on account of, any present or future Taxes of whatever nature imposed or levied by or on behalf of any jurisdiction other than the United States, Canada (in the case of any holder of Notes incorporated, organized or resident for tax purposes in Canada), Japan (in the case of any holder of Notes incorporated, organized or resident for tax purposes in Japan) or Australia (in the case of any holder of Notes incorporated, organized or resident for tax purposes in Australia) (or any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in such jurisdiction) (hereinafter a “Taxing Jurisdiction”), unless the withholding or deduction of such Tax is compelled by law.

If any deduction or withholding for any Tax of a Taxing Jurisdiction shall at any time be required in respect of any amounts to be paid by the Obligor or either Partner under any Finance Document to which it is a party, the Obligor or such Partner, as the case may be, will pay to the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction the full amount required to be withheld, deducted or otherwise paid before penalties attach thereto or interest accrues thereon and pay to each holder of a Note such additional amounts as may be necessary in order that the net amounts paid to such holder pursuant to the terms of the relevant Finance Document after such deduction, withholding or payment (including, without limitation, any required deduction or withholding of Tax on or with respect to such additional amount), shall be not less than the amounts then due and payable to such holder under the terms of the relevant Finance Document before the assessment of such Tax, provided that no payment of any additional amounts shall be required to be made for or on account of:

(a) any Excluded Tax;

(b) with respect to a holder of any Note, any Tax that would not have been imposed but for any breach by such holder of any representation made or deemed to have been made by such holder pursuant to Section 6.3(a), 6.3(c) or 6.3(d);

(c) any Tax that would not have been imposed had any holder of a Note that is an Australian tax resident or holds the Note in connection with a permanent establishment in Australia provided the Company with:

(i) its Australian business number; or

(ii) its Australian tax file number or evidence of an exemption from providing an Australian tax file number;

(d) any Tax that would not have been imposed but for the existence of any present or former connection between such holder (or a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member of, shareholder of, or possessor of a power over, such holder, if such holder is an estate, trust, partnership or corporation or any Person other than the holder to whom the

 

42


Notes or any amount payable thereon is attributable for the purposes of such Tax) and the Taxing Jurisdiction, other than the mere holding of the relevant Note (with the benefit of the guarantees of the Guarantor and the Partners hereunder) or the receipt of payments thereunder or in respect thereof, including, without limitation, such holder (or such other Person described in the above parenthetical) being or having been a citizen or resident thereof, or being or having been present or engaged in trade or business therein or having or having had an establishment, office, fixed base or branch therein, provided that this exclusion shall not apply with respect to a Tax that would not have been imposed but for the Obligor or either Partner, after the date of the Closing, opening an office in, moving an office to, reincorporating in, or changing the Taxing Jurisdiction from or through which payments on account of any Finance Documents are made to, the Taxing Jurisdiction imposing the relevant Tax;

(e) any Tax that would not have been imposed but for the delay or failure by such holder (following a written request by the Obligor or either Partner) in the filing with the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction of Forms (as defined below) that are required to be filed by such holder to avoid or reduce such Taxes (including for such purpose any refilings or renewals of filings that may from time to time be required by the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction), provided that the filing of such Forms would not (in such holder’s reasonable judgment) impose any unreasonable burden (in time, resources or otherwise) on such holder or result in any confidential or proprietary income tax return information being revealed, either directly or indirectly, to any Person and such delay or failure could have been lawfully avoided by such holder, and provided further that such holder shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of this clause (e) upon the good faith completion and submission of such Forms (including refilings or renewals of filings) as may be specified in a written request of the Obligor or either Partner no later than 45 days after receipt by such holder of such written request (accompanied by copies of such Forms and related instructions, if any); or

(f) any combination of clauses (a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) above;

and provided further that in no event shall the Obligor or either Partner be obligated to pay such additional amounts to any holder of a Note (i) not resident in the United States of America, Canada, Japan, Australia or any other jurisdiction in which an original Purchaser is resident for tax purposes on the date of the Closing in excess of the amounts that the Obligor or such Partner would be obligated to pay if such holder had been a resident of the United States of America, Canada, Japan, Australia or such other jurisdiction, as applicable (and, to the extent applicable, for purposes of, and eligible for the benefits of, any double taxation treaty from time to time in effect between the United States of America, Canada, Japan, Australia or such other jurisdiction and the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction to the extent that such eligibility would reduce such additional amounts), or (ii) registered in the name of a nominee if under the law of the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction (or the current regulatory interpretation of such law) securities held in the name of a nominee do not qualify for an exemption from the relevant Tax and the Obligor or such Partner shall have given timely notice of such law or interpretation to such holder.

 

43


By acceptance of any Note, the holder of such Note agrees, subject to the limitations of clause (e) above, that it will from time to time with reasonable promptness (x) duly complete and deliver to or as reasonably directed by the Obligor or either Partner all such forms, certificates, documents and returns provided to such holder by the Obligor or such Partner (collectively, together with instructions for completing the same, “Forms”) required to be filed by or on behalf of such holder in order to avoid or reduce any such Tax pursuant to the provisions of an applicable statute, regulation or administrative practice of the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction or of an applicable tax treaty and (y) provide the Obligor or either Partner with such information with respect to such holder as the Obligor or such Partner may reasonably request in order to complete any such Forms, provided that nothing in this Section 13 shall require any holder to provide information with respect to any such Form or otherwise if in the opinion of such holder such Form or disclosure of information would involve the disclosure of tax return or other information that is confidential or proprietary to such holder, and provided further that each such holder shall be deemed to have complied with its obligation under this paragraph with respect to any Form if such Form shall have been duly completed and delivered by such holder to the Obligor or the relevant Partner or mailed to the appropriate taxing authority, whichever is applicable, within 45 days following a written request of the Obligor or either Partner (which request shall be accompanied by copies of such Form) and, in the case of a transfer of any Note, at least 90 days prior to the relevant interest payment date.

On or before the date of the Closing the Obligor will furnish each Purchaser with copies of the appropriate Form (and English translation if required as aforesaid) currently required to be filed in the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction pursuant to clause (e) of the second paragraph of this Section 13, if any, and in connection with the transfer of any Note, the Obligor will furnish the transferee of such Note with copies of any Form and English translation then required.

If any payment is made by the Obligor or either Partner to or for the account of the holder of any Note after deduction for or on account of any Taxes, and additional amounts are paid by the Obligor or such Partner pursuant to this Section 13, then, if such holder has received or been granted a refund of such Taxes, such holder shall, to the extent that it can do so without prejudice to the retention of the amount of such refund, reimburse to the Obligor or such Partner such amount as such holder shall, in its sole discretion, determine to be attributable to the relevant Taxes or deduction or withholding. Nothing herein contained shall interfere with the right of the holder of any Note to arrange its tax affairs in whatever manner it thinks fit and, in particular, no holder of any Note shall be under any obligation to claim relief from its corporate profits or similar tax liability in respect of such Tax in priority to any other claims, reliefs, credits or deductions available to it or (other than as set forth in clause (e) above) oblige any holder of any Note to disclose any information relating to its tax affairs or any computations in respect thereof.

The Obligor or the relevant Partner will furnish the holders of Notes, promptly and in any event within 60 days after the date of any payment by the Obligor or such Partner of any Tax in respect of any amounts paid under any Finance Document the original tax receipt issued by the relevant taxation or other authorities involved for all amounts paid as aforesaid (or if such original tax receipt is not available or must legally be kept in the possession of the Obligor or such Partner, a duly certified copy of the original tax receipt or any other reasonably satisfactory evidence of payment), together with such other documentary evidence with respect to such payments as may be reasonably requested from time to time by any holder of a Note.

 

44


If the Obligor or either Partner is required by any applicable law, as modified by the practice of the taxation or other authority of any relevant Taxing Jurisdiction, to make any deduction or withholding of any Tax in respect of which the Obligor or such Partner would be required to pay any additional amount under this Section 13, but for any reason does not make such deduction or withholding with the result that a liability in respect of such Tax is assessed directly against the holder of any Note, and such holder pays such liability, then the Obligor or such Partner will promptly reimburse such holder for such payment (including any related interest or penalties to the extent such interest or penalties arise by virtue of a default or delay by the Obligor or such Partner) upon demand by such holder accompanied by an official receipt (or a duly certified copy thereof) issued by the taxation or other authority of the relevant Taxing Jurisdiction.

If the Obligor or either Partner makes payment to or for the account of any holder of a Note and such holder is entitled to a refund of the Tax to which such payment is attributable upon the making of a filing (other than a Form described above), then such holder shall, as soon as practicable after receiving written request from the Obligor or such Partner (which shall specify in reasonable detail and supply the refund forms to be filed) use reasonable efforts to complete and deliver such refund forms to or as directed by the Obligor or such Partner, subject, however, to the same limitations with respect to Forms as are set forth above.

The obligations of the Obligor and the Partners under this Section 13 shall survive the payment or transfer of any Note and the provisions of this Section 13 shall also apply to successive transferees of the Notes.

 

14.

GUARANTOR AND PARTNER GUARANTEE, LIMITED RECOURSE, CONSENTS, ETC.

 

14.1.

Guarantee.

The Guarantor and each Partner hereby guarantees to each holder of any Note or Notes at any time outstanding (a) the prompt payment in full, in U.S. Dollars, in the case of U.S. Dollar Notes, or Australian Dollars, in the case of the Series G Notes, when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration, by mandatory or optional prepayment or otherwise) of the principal of, Make-Whole Amount and Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, and interest on the Notes (including, without limitation, any interest on any overdue principal, Make-Whole Amount and Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, on any overdue interest and on payment of additional amounts described in Section 13) and all other amounts from time to time owing by the Company under this Agreement and the Notes (including, without limitation, costs, expenses and taxes in accordance with the terms hereof), and (b) the prompt performance and observance by the Company of all covenants, agreements and conditions on its part to be performed and observed hereunder, in each case strictly in accordance with the terms thereof (such payments and other obligations being herein collectively called the “Guaranteed Obligations”). The Guarantor and each Partner hereby further agrees that if the Company shall default in the payment or performance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the

 

45


Guarantor and such Partner will (x) promptly pay or perform the same, without any demand or notice whatsoever, and that in the case of any extension of time of payment or renewal of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the same will be promptly paid in full when due (whether at extended maturity, by acceleration, by mandatory or optional prepayment or otherwise) in accordance with the terms of such extension or renewal and (y) pay to the holder of any Note such amounts, to the extent lawful, as shall be sufficient to pay the costs and expenses of collection or of otherwise enforcing any of such holder’s rights under this Agreement, including, without limitation, reasonable counsel fees.

All obligations of the Guarantor and the Partners under Sections 14.1 and 14.2 shall survive the transfer of any Note, and any obligations of the Guarantor and the Partners under Sections 14.1 and 14.2 with respect to which the underlying obligation of the Company is expressly stated to survive the payment of any Note shall also survive payment of such Note.

 

14.2.

Obligations Unconditional.

(a) The obligations of the Guarantor and each Partner under Section 14.1 constitute a present and continuing guaranty of payment and not collectibility and are absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, irrespective of the value, genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of the obligations of the Company under this Agreement, the Notes or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein, or any substitution, release or exchange of any Guaranty of or security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, irrespective of any other circumstance whatsoever which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor, it being the intent of this Section 14.2 that the obligations of the Guarantor and each Partner hereunder shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable under any and all circumstances. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of the Guarantor and each Partner hereunder which shall remain absolute, unconditional and irrevocable as described above:

(1) any amendment or modification of any provision of this Agreement (other than Section 14.1 or 14.2), any Member Guarantee or any of the Notes or any assignment or transfer thereof, including without limitation the renewal or extension of the time of payment of any of the Notes or the granting of time in respect of such payment thereof, or of any furnishing or acceptance of security or any additional guarantee or any release of any security or guarantee so furnished or accepted for any of the Notes;

(2) any waiver, consent, extension, granting of time, forbearance, indulgence or other action or inaction under or in respect of this Agreement, the Notes or any Member Guarantee, or any exercise or non-exercise of any right, remedy or power in respect hereof or thereof;

(3) any bankruptcy, receivership, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, readjustment, composition, liquidation or similar proceedings with respect to the Company or any other Person or the properties or creditors of any of them;

 

46


(4) the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default under, or any invalidity or any unenforceability of, or any misrepresentation, irregularity or other defect in, this Agreement, the Notes or any other agreement;

(5) any transfer of any assets to or from the Company, including without limitation any transfer or purported transfer to the Company from any Person, any invalidity, illegality of, or inability to enforce, any such transfer or purported transfer, any consolidation or merger of the Company with or into any Person, any change in the ownership of any shares of capital stock of the Company, or any change whatsoever in the objects, capital structure, constitution or business of the Company;

(6) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, on the part of the Company or any other Person to perform or comply with, or the impossibility or illegality of performance by the Company or any other Person of, any term of this Agreement, the Notes or any other agreement;

(7) any suit or other action brought by, or any judgment in favor of, any beneficiaries or creditors of, the Company or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation any suit or action in any way attacking or involving any issue, matter or thing in respect of this Agreement, the Notes or any other agreement;

(8) any lack or limitation of status or of power, incapacity or disability of the Company or any trustee or agent thereof, and other person providing a Guaranty of, or security for, any of the Guaranteed Obligations; or

(9) any other thing, event, happening, matter, circumstance or condition whatsoever, not in any way limited to the foregoing (other than the indefeasible payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations).

(b) The Guarantor and each Partner hereby unconditionally waives diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest and all notices whatsoever and any requirement that any holder of a Note exhaust any right, power or remedy against the Company under this Agreement or the Notes or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein, or against any other Person under any other Guaranty of, or security for, any of the Guaranteed Obligations.

(c) In the event that the Guarantor or either Partner shall at any time pay any amount on account of the Guaranteed Obligations or take any other action in performance of its obligations hereunder, the Guarantor or such Partner, as applicable, shall not exercise any subrogation or other rights hereunder or under the Notes and the Guarantor or such Partner, as applicable, hereby waives all rights it may have to exercise any such subrogation or other rights, and

 

47


all other remedies that it may have against the Company, in respect of any payment made hereunder unless and until the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full. Prior to the payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations, if any amount shall be paid to the Guarantor or either Partner, as applicable, on account of any such subrogation rights or other remedy, notwithstanding the waiver thereof, such amount shall be received in trust for the benefit of the holders of the Notes and shall forthwith be paid to such holders to be credited and applied upon the Guaranteed Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms hereof. The Guarantor and each Partner agrees that its obligations under this Section 14 shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment (including payment in full) by or on behalf of the Company is rescinded or must be otherwise restored by any holder of a Note, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, all as though such amount had not been paid.

(d) If an event permitting the acceleration of the maturity of the principal amount of the Notes shall at any time have occurred and be continuing and such acceleration (and the effect thereof on the Guaranteed Obligations) shall at such time be prevented by reason of the pendency against the Company or any other Person (other than the Guarantor or either Partner as to itself) of a case or proceeding under a bankruptcy or insolvency law, the Guarantor and each Partner agrees that, for purposes of the guarantee in this Section 14 and the Guarantor’s and each Partner’s obligations under this Agreement, the maturity of the principal amount of the Notes shall be deemed to have been accelerated (with a corresponding effect on the Guaranteed Obligations) with the same effect as if the holders of the Notes had accelerated the same in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and the Guarantor and each Partner shall forthwith pay such principal amount, any interest thereon, any Make-Whole Amounts and any other amounts guaranteed hereunder without further notice or demand.

(e) The guarantee in Sections 14.1 and 14.2 is a continuing guarantee and shall apply to the Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising. Each default in the payment or performance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall give rise to a separate claim and cause of action hereunder, and separate claims or suits may be made and brought, as the case may be, hereunder as each such default occurs.

 

14.3.

Limited Recourse to the Partners.

(a) Notwithstanding Sections 14.1 and 14.2 above and any other provisions of the Finance Documents (other than Section 14.3(d) below) the obligation of each Partner to pay any amount under any Finance Document (whether present, future or prospective) is limited to the extent that the amount can be satisfied out of its Partnership Property.

(b) Each party irrevocably and unconditionally releases all claims it may have against either Partner under or in connection with the Finance Documents except to the extent that such Partner is liable under Section 14.3(a).

(c) No party shall have any claim against or recourse to the directors, officers or employees of either Partner, by operation of law or otherwise. Such recourse is irrevocably waived.

 

48


(d) Nothing in Section 14.3(a) or 14.3(c) limits the liability of either Partner in respect of any loss, cost or expense suffered or incurred by any holder of a Note as a result of:

(i) the fraud or willful default of such Partner or any of its directors, officers or employees under or in connection with the Finance Documents; provided, that, the failure of any Partner to comply with an obligation to pay its Obligations under the Finance Documents will not in itself constitute fraud or willful default of such Partner;

(ii) any breach of an undertaking given by such Partner in:

(A) Sections 10.4, 10.5 or 10.6(b) of this Agreement; or

(B) any Subordination Deed to which such Partner is individually expressed to be a party; or

(iii) the incorrectness or untruthfulness of any warranty or representation given by such Partner in:

(A) Sections 5.1, 5.2, 5.6, 5.10, 5.22, 5.23 or clause (i) of Section 5.21; or

(B) any Subordination Deed to which such Partner is individually expressed to be a party.

(e) Except to the extent that either Partner is liable under Section 14.3(d), a party may satisfy its rights against such Partner arising from non payment of its Obligations only to the extent that such rights can be satisfied from such Partner’s Partnership Property and no party may, in connection with such Obligations:

(i) take any action against such Partner, its directors, officers or employees personally to recover any part of its Obligations which cannot be satisfied out of the Partnership Property of such Partner or obtain a judgment for the payment of money or damages by such Partner, its directors, officers or employees;

(ii) issue any demand under section 459E(1) of the Corporations Act (or any analogous provision under any other law) against such Partner;

(iii) apply for or prove in (except to the extent that such Partner is liable under Section 14.3(a)) the winding up of such Partner;

(iv) levy execution or take any action against any asset of such Partner (other than the Partnership Property of such Partner) to recover any of its Obligations; or

(v) apply for the appointment of a receiver to any of the assets of such Partner (other than the Partnership Property of such Partner); or

 

49


(vi) take any proceedings for any of the above and each party waives its rights in respect of those actions, applications and proceedings.

(f) Despite anything in, or in connection with, the Finance Documents, each party hereto agrees that (i) claims under or in connection with the Finance Documents are not claims to which the Telstra Deed of Cross Guarantee applies in any way, and (ii) it may not claim or attempt to claim to have any rights under, or make any claim or seek to enforce any rights, in connection with the Telstra Deed of Cross Guarantee.

(g) For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 14.3 prevents or limits any party from obtaining a declaration concerning any of the Finance Documents, an injunction or other order restraining any breach of a Finance Document or otherwise in relation to the Partnership Property of a Partner. This clause operates as a release and a covenant not to sue and may be pleaded in bar to any action brought in breach of it.

(h) No party in the exercise of any right, power, authority, discretion or remedy conferred on it by any Finance Document or any applicable law, including any voting rights under the Finance Documents, nor any other Person appointed by any party under the Finance Documents (an “Administrator”) has the power or authority to incur obligations binding on a Partner other than obligations the extent and enforcement of which are limited in the same manner as the extent and enforcement of a Partner’s obligations under the Finance Documents are limited by this Section 14.3.

(i) No party may appoint any Administrator with the power or authority to incur obligations binding on a Partner unless (i) the authority of such Administrator is limited in accordance with this Section 14.3, and (ii) such Administrator executes an agreement acknowledging the limitation.

(j) This Section 14.3 shall apply despite any other provision in any document or any other thing and, in the event of any inconsistency between this Section 14.3 and another provision of a Finance Document, this Section 14.3 shall prevail.

 

14.4.

Consent of Partners.

The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the other parties hereto are entitled to treat any discharge, receipt, waiver, consent, communication, agreement, act or other thing given or effected by the Obligor as having been given or effected for or on behalf of, and with the authority and consent of, the Partners.

 

15.

REGISTRATION; EXCHANGE; SUBSTITUTION OF NOTES.

 

15.1.

Registration of Notes.

The Company shall keep at its principal executive office a register for the registration and registration of transfers of Notes. The name and address of each holder of one or more Notes, each transfer thereof and the name and address of each transferee of one or more Notes shall be registered in such register. Prior to due presentment for registration of transfer, the Person in whose name any Note shall be registered shall be deemed and treated as the owner

 

50


and holder thereof for all purposes hereof, and the Company shall not be affected by any notice or knowledge to the contrary. The Company shall give to any holder of a Note that is an Institutional Investor promptly upon request therefor, a complete and correct copy of the names and addresses of all registered holders of Notes.

 

15.2.

Transfer and Exchange of Notes.

Upon surrender of any Note to the Company at the address and to the attention of the designated officer (all as specified in Section 20) for registration of transfer or exchange (and in the case of a surrender for registration of transfer accompanied by (i) a written instrument of transfer duly executed by the registered holder of such Note or such holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing and accompanied by the relevant beneficial name, any nominee name, address and other details for notices of each transferee of such Note or part thereof and (ii) a QP Transfer Certificate duly executed by each transferee of such Note) within ten Business Days thereafter the Company shall execute and deliver, at the Company’s expense (except as provided below), one or more new Notes of the same series (as requested by the holder thereof) in exchange therefor, in an aggregate principal amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of the surrendered Note. Each such new Note shall be payable to such Person as such holder may request and shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit 1-A, 1-B, 1-C or 1-D, as applicable. Each such new Note shall be dated and bear interest from the date to which interest shall have been paid on the surrendered Note or dated the date of the surrendered Note if no interest shall have been paid thereon. The Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any stamp tax or governmental charge imposed in respect of any such transfer of Notes. Notes shall not be transferred in denominations of less than U.S.$100,000 in the case of the U.S. Dollar Notes, and A$100,000 in the case of the Series G Notes, provided that if necessary to enable the registration of transfer by a holder of its entire holding of a series of the Notes, one Note of such series may be in a denomination of less than U.S.$100,000 or A$100,000, as the case may be. Any transferee, by its acceptance of a Note registered in its name (or the name of its nominee), shall be deemed to have agreed to be bound by the provisions contained herein expressed to be, or that otherwise are, applicable to holders of Notes and to have made (as of the date of such acceptance instead of the date of the Closing) the representations set forth in Section 6, except with respect to Sections 6.1, 6.3(a) and 6.3(d).

 

15.3.

Replacement of Notes.

Upon receipt by the Company at the address and to the attention of the designated officer (all as specified in Section 20) of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the ownership of and the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any Note (which evidence shall be, in the case of an Institutional Investor, notice from such Institutional Investor of such ownership and such loss, theft, destruction or mutilation), and

(a) in the case of loss, theft or destruction, of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it (provided that if the holder of such Note is, or is a nominee for, an original Purchaser or another holder of a Note with a minimum net worth of at least U.S.$100,000,000, such Person’s own unsecured agreement of indemnity shall be deemed to be satisfactory), or

 

51


(b) in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation thereof,

within ten Business Days thereafter the Company at its own expense shall execute and deliver, in lieu thereof, a new Note of the same series and currency, dated and bearing interest from the date to which interest shall have been paid on such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Note or dated the date of such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Note if no interest shall have been paid thereon.

Subject to Section 16.2, payments of principal, Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, and interest becoming due and payable on the Notes shall be made in New York, New York at the principal office of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. in such jurisdiction. The Company may at any time, by notice to each holder of a Note, change the place of payment of the Notes so long as such place of payment shall be either the principal office of the Company in such jurisdiction or the principal office of a bank or trust company in such jurisdiction.

 

16.2.

Home Office Payment.

So long as any Purchaser or its nominee shall be the holder of any Note, and notwithstanding anything contained in Section 16.1 or in such Note to the contrary, the Company will pay all sums becoming due on such Note for principal, Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount, if any, and interest by the method and at the address specified for such purpose below such Purchaser’s name in Schedule A, or by such other method or at such other address as such Purchaser shall have from time to time specified to the Company in writing for such purpose, without the presentation or surrender of such Note or the making of any notation thereon, except that upon written request of the Obligor and the Partners made concurrently with or reasonably promptly after payment or prepayment in full of any Note, such Purchaser shall surrender such Note for cancellation, reasonably promptly after any such request, to the Company at its address as set forth in Section 20. Prior to any sale or other disposition of any Note held by a Purchaser or its nominee, such Purchaser will, at its election, either endorse thereon the amount of principal paid thereon and the last date to which interest has been paid thereon or surrender such Note to the Company in exchange for a new Note or Notes pursuant to Section 15.2. The Company will afford the benefits of this Section 16.2 to any Institutional Investor that is the direct or indirect transferee of any Note purchased by a Purchaser under this Agreement and that has made the same agreement relating to such Note as the Purchasers have made in this Section 16.2.

EXPENSES, ETC.

 

17.1.

Transaction Expenses.

Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, the Obligor will pay all costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees of a special counsel and, if reasonably required by the Required Holders, local or other counsel) incurred by the Purchasers and each other holder of a Note in connection with such transactions and in connection with any amendments, waivers or consents under or in respect of any Finance Document (whether or not such amendment, waiver or consent becomes effective), including, without limitation: (a) the costs and expenses incurred in enforcing or defending (or determining whether or how to enforce or defend) any rights under any Finance Document or in responding to any subpoena or other legal process or informal investigative demand issued in connection with any Finance Document, or by reason of being a holder of any Note, (b) the costs and expenses, including financial advisors’ fees, incurred in connection with the insolvency or bankruptcy of the Obligor, either Partner or any Member or in connection with any work-out or restructuring of the transactions contemplated hereby, by the Notes or by any other Finance Document and (c) the costs and expenses incurred in connection with the initial filing of this Agreement and all related documents and financial information with the SVO, provided that such costs and expenses under this clause (c) shall not exceed U.S.$4,400. The Obligor will pay, and will save each Purchaser and each other holder of a Note harmless from, all claims in respect of any fees, costs or expenses, if any, of brokers and finders (other than those, if any, retained by a Purchaser or other holder in connection with its purchase of the Notes).

Certain Taxes.

The Obligor agrees to pay all stamp, documentary or similar taxes or fees which may be payable in respect of the execution and delivery or the enforcement of any Finance Document or the execution and delivery (but not the transfer) or the enforcement of any of the Notes in the United States, Australia or any other applicable jurisdiction or of any amendment of, or waiver or consent under or with respect to, any Finance Document, and to pay any value added tax due and payable in respect of reimbursement of costs and expenses by the Obligor pursuant to this Section 17, and will save each holder of a Note to the extent permitted by applicable law harmless against any loss or liability resulting from nonpayment or delay in payment of any such tax or fee required to be paid by the Obligor or any Partner hereunder or by any Member Guarantor under any Member Guarantee.

 

17.3.

Survival.

The obligations of the Obligor under this Section 17 will survive the payment or transfer of any Note, the enforcement, amendment or waiver of any provision of any Finance Document, and the termination of this Agreement.

 

18.

SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES; ENTIRE AGREEMENT.

All representations and warranties contained herein shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the Notes, the purchase or transfer by any Purchaser of any Note or portion thereof or interest therein and the payment of any Note, and may be relied upon by any subsequent holder of a Note, regardless of any investigation made at any time by or on behalf of such Purchaser or any other holder of a Note. All statements contained in any certificate or other instrument delivered by or on behalf of the Obligor or either Partner pursuant to this Agreement shall be deemed representations and warranties of the Obligor or such Partner,

 

53


as the case may be, under this Agreement. Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement, the Notes and the other Finance Documents embody the entire agreement and understanding between each Purchaser, the Obligor and each Partner, and supersede all prior agreements and understandings relating to the subject matter hereof.

 

19.

AMENDMENT AND WAIVER.

 

19.1.

Requirements.

This Agreement and the Notes may be amended, and the observance of any term hereof or of the Notes may be waived (either retroactively or prospectively), with (and only with) the written consent of the Obligor, the Partners and the Required Holders, except that (a) no amendment or waiver of any of the provisions of Section 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 23, or any defined term (as it is used therein), will be effective as to any Purchaser unless consented to by such Purchaser in writing, and (b) no such amendment or waiver may, without the written consent of the holder of each Note at the time outstanding affected thereby, (i) subject to the provisions of Section 12 relating to acceleration or rescission, change the amount or time of any prepayment or payment of principal of, or reduce the rate or change the time of payment or method of computation of interest or of the Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount on, the Notes, (ii) change the percentage of the principal amount of the Notes the holders of which are required to consent to any such amendment or waiver, or (iii) amend Section 8, 11(a), 11(b), 12, 13, 14, 19, 22 or 24.11.

 

19.2.

Solicitation of Holders of Notes.

(a) Solicitation. The Obligor will provide each holder of the Notes (irrespective of the amount of Notes then owned by it) with sufficient information, sufficiently far in advance of the date a decision is required, to enable such holder to make an informed and considered decision with respect to any proposed amendment, waiver or consent in respect of any of the provisions hereof or of the Notes. The Obligor will deliver executed or true and correct copies of each amendment, waiver or consent effected pursuant to the provisions of this Section 19 to each holder of outstanding Notes promptly following the date on which it is executed and delivered by, or receives the consent or approval of, the requisite holders of Notes.

(b) Payment. No Transaction Party or any Member will directly or indirectly pay or cause to be paid any remuneration, whether by way of supplemental or additional interest, fee or otherwise, or grant any security or provide other credit support, to any holder of Notes as consideration for or as an inducement to the entering into by any holder of Notes of any waiver or amendment of any of the terms and provisions hereof or of any other Finance Document unless such remuneration is concurrently paid, or security is concurrently granted or other credit support concurrently provided, on the same terms, ratably to each holder of Notes then outstanding even if such holder did not consent to such waiver or amendment.

(c) Consent in Contemplation of Transfer. Any consent made pursuant to this Section 19.2 by the holder of any Note that has transferred or has agreed to transfer such Note to the Obligor, any Member or any Affiliate of the Obligor or any Member pursuant to an offer made pursuant to clause (b) of the first sentence of Section 8.9 and has provided or has agreed to

 

54


provide such written consent as a condition to such transfer shall be void and of no force or effect except solely as to such holder, and any amendments effected or waivers granted or to be effected or granted that would not have been or would not be so effected or granted but for such consent (and the consents of all other holders of Notes that were acquired under the same or similar conditions) shall be void and of no force or effect except solely as to such transferring holder.

 

19.3.

Binding Effect, Etc.

Any amendment or waiver consented to as provided in this Section 19 applies equally to all holders of Notes and is binding upon them and upon each future holder of any Note and upon the Obligor and the Partners without regard to whether such Note has been marked to indicate such amendment or waiver. No such amendment or waiver will extend to or affect any obligation, covenant, agreement, Default or Event of Default not expressly amended or waived or impair any right consequent thereon. No course of dealing between the Obligor and the holder of any Note or between either Partner and the holder of any Note nor any delay in exercising any rights hereunder or under any Note or under any Member Guarantee shall operate as a waiver of any rights of any holder of such Note. As used herein, the term “this Agreement” and references thereto shall mean this Agreement as it may from time to time be amended or supplemented.

 

19.4.

Notes Held by any Transaction Party or Member, Etc.

Solely for the purpose of determining whether the holders of the requisite percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding approved or consented to any amendment, waiver or consent to be given under this Agreement or the Notes, or have directed the taking of any action provided herein or in the Notes to be taken upon the direction of the holders of a specified percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding, Notes directly or indirectly owned by any Transaction Party or any Member or any Affiliate of any Transaction Party or any Member shall be deemed not to be outstanding.

This Agreement and all documents relating thereto, including, without limitation, (a) consents, waivers and modifications that may hereafter be executed, (b) documents received by any Purchaser at the Closing (except the Notes themselves), and (c) financial statements, certificates and other information previously or hereafter furnished to any Purchaser, may be reproduced by such Purchaser by any photographic, photostatic, electronic, digital or other similar process and such Purchaser may destroy any original document so reproduced. The Obligor and the Partners agree and stipulate that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any such reproduction shall be admissible in evidence as the original itself in any judicial or administrative proceeding (whether or not the original is in existence and whether or not such reproduction was made by such Purchaser in the regular course of business) and any enlargement, facsimile or further reproduction of such reproduction shall likewise be admissible in evidence. This Section 21 shall not prohibit the Obligor, either Partner or any other holder of Notes from contesting any such reproduction to the same extent that it could contest the original, or from introducing evidence to demonstrate the inaccuracy of any such reproduction.

 

56


22.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

For the purposes of this Section 22, “Confidential Information” means information delivered to any Purchaser by or on behalf of any Transaction Party or any Member in connection with the transactions contemplated by or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement that is proprietary in nature and that was clearly marked or labeled or otherwise adequately identified when received by such Purchaser as being confidential information of such Transaction Party or such Member, provided that such term does not include information that (a) was publicly known or otherwise known to such Purchaser prior to the time of such disclosure, (b) subsequently becomes publicly known through no act or omission by such Purchaser or any person acting on such Purchaser’s behalf, (c) otherwise becomes known to such Purchaser other than through disclosure by any Transaction Party or any Member or (d) constitutes financial statements delivered to such Purchaser under Section 7.1 that are otherwise publicly available. Each Purchaser will maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential Information in accordance with procedures adopted by such Purchaser in good faith to protect confidential information of third parties delivered to such Purchaser, provided that such Purchaser may deliver or disclose Confidential Information to (i) its directors, trustees, officers, employees, agents, attorneys and affiliates (to the extent such disclosure reasonably relates to the administration of the investment represented by its Notes), (ii) its financial advisors and other professional advisors who agree to hold confidential the Confidential Information substantially in accordance with the terms of this Section 22, (iii) any other holder of any Note, (iv) any Institutional Investor to which it sells or offers to sell such Note or any part thereof or any participation therein (if such Person has agreed in writing prior to its receipt of such Confidential Information to be bound by the provisions of this Section 22), (v) any Person from which it offers to purchase any security of the Obligor or either Partner (if such Person has agreed in writing prior to its receipt of such Confidential Information to be bound by the provisions of this Section 22), (vi) any federal or state regulatory authority having jurisdiction over such Purchaser, (vii) the NAIC or the SVO or, in each case, any similar organization, or any nationally recognized rating agency that requires access to information about such Purchaser’s investment portfolio, or (viii) any other Person to which such delivery or disclosure may be necessary or appropriate (w) to effect compliance with any law, rule, regulation or order applicable to such Purchaser, (x) in response to any subpoena or other legal process, (y) in connection with any litigation to which such Purchaser is a party or (z) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to the extent such Purchaser may reasonably determine such delivery and disclosure to be necessary or appropriate in the enforcement or for the protection of the rights and remedies under such Purchaser’s Notes and this Agreement. Additionally, no Purchaser may disclose any information of the kind referred to in section 275(1) of the PPSA other than where (a) required due to the operation of section 275(7) of the PPSA or (b) otherwise permitted to be disclosed pursuant to this Section 22. Each holder of a Note, by its acceptance of a Note, will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by and to be entitled to the benefits of this Section 22 as though it were a party to this Agreement. On reasonable request by the Obligor or either Partner in connection with the delivery to any holder of a Note of information required to be delivered to such holder under this Agreement or requested by such holder (other than a holder that is a party to this Agreement or its nominee), such holder will enter into an agreement with the Obligor and the Partners embodying the provisions of this Section 22.

 

57


23.

SUBSTITUTION OF PURCHASER.

Each Purchaser shall have the right to substitute any one of its Affiliates as the purchaser of the Notes that it has agreed to purchase hereunder, by written notice to the Company, which notice shall be signed by both such Purchaser and such Affiliate, shall contain such Affiliate’s agreement to be bound by this Agreement and shall contain a confirmation by such Affiliate of the accuracy with respect to it of the representations set forth in Section 6. Upon receipt of such notice, any reference to such Purchaser in this Agreement (other than in this Section 23), shall be deemed to refer to such Affiliate in lieu of such original Purchaser. In the event that such Affiliate is so substituted as a Purchaser hereunder and such Affiliate thereafter transfers to such original Purchaser all of the Notes then held by such Affiliate, upon receipt by the Company of notice of such transfer, any reference to such Affiliate as a “Purchaser” in this Agreement (other than in this Section 23), shall no longer be deemed to refer to such Affiliate, but shall refer to such original Purchaser, and such original Purchaser shall again have all the rights of an original holder of the Notes under this Agreement.

 

24.

MISCELLANEOUS.

 

24.1.

Successors and Assigns.

All covenants and other agreements contained in this Agreement by or on behalf of any of the parties hereto bind and inure to the benefit of their respective successors and assigns (including, without limitation, any subsequent holder of a Note) whether so expressed or not.

 

24.2.

Payments Due on Non-Business Days.

Anything in this Agreement or the Notes to the contrary notwithstanding (but without limiting the requirement in Section 8 that notice of any optional prepayment specify a Business Day as the date fixed for such prepayment), any payment of principal of or Make-Whole Amount or Modified Make-Whole Amount or interest on any Note that is due on a date other than a Business Day shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day without including the additional days elapsed in the computation of the interest payable on such next succeeding Business Day; provided that if the maturity date of any Note is a date other than a Business Day, the payment otherwise due on such maturity date shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and shall include the additional days elapsed in the computation of interest payable on such next succeeding Business Day.

 

24.3.

Accounting Terms.

(a) All accounting terms used herein which are not expressly defined in this Agreement have the meanings respectively given to them in accordance with Relevant GAAP. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, all computations made pursuant to this Agreement shall be made in accordance with Relevant GAAP, and all financial statements shall be prepared in accordance with Relevant GAAP, where applicable for special purpose accounts.

 

58


(b) For purposes of determining compliance with the financial covenants contained in this Agreement, any election by an Obligor or a Partner to measure an item of Indebtedness using fair value (as permitted by International Accounting Standard 39 or any similar accounting standard (the “Relevant Accounting Standard”)) shall be disregarded and such determination shall be made as if such election had not been made. The foregoing restriction shall not apply to any derivative financial instrument and shall not restrict in any way valuations related to hedge accounting under any Relevant Accounting Standard.

 

24.4.

Change in Relevant GAAP.

If the Obligor notifies the holders of Notes that, in the Obligor’s reasonable opinion, or if the Required Holders notify the Obligor that, in the Required Holders’ reasonable opinion, as a result of changes in Relevant GAAP after the date of this Agreement (“Subsequent Changes”), any of the covenants contained in Sections 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, or any of the defined terms used therein no longer apply as intended such that such covenants are materially more or less restrictive to the Obligor than as at the date of this Agreement, the Obligor and the holders of Notes shall negotiate in good faith to reset or amend such covenants or defined terms so as to negate such Subsequent Changes, or to establish alternative covenants or defined terms. Until the Obligor and the Required Holders so agree to reset, amend or establish alternative covenants or defined terms, the covenants contained in Sections 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, together with the relevant defined terms, shall continue to apply and compliance therewith shall be determined assuming that the Subsequent Changes shall not have occurred (“Static GAAP”). During any period that compliance with any covenants shall be determined pursuant to Static GAAP, the Obligor shall include relevant reconciliations in reasonable detail between Relevant GAAP and Static GAAP with respect to the applicable covenant compliance calculations contained in each certificate of a Senior Financial Officer delivered pursuant to Section 7.2(a) during such period. To the extent that a Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, any Additional Covenants shall be subject to the effect of this Section 24.4.

 

24.5.

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 (to the full extent permitted by law) not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

24.6.

Construction, Etc.

Each covenant contained herein shall be construed (absent express provision to the contrary) as being independent of each other covenant contained herein, so that compliance with any one covenant shall not (absent such an express contrary provision) be deemed to excuse compliance with any other covenant. Where any provision herein refers to action to be taken by any Person, or which such Person is prohibited from taking, such provision shall be applicable whether such action is taken directly or indirectly by such Person.

 

59


For the avoidance of doubt, all Schedules and Exhibits attached to this Agreement shall be deemed to be a part hereof.

 

24.7.

Ratification.

As a shareholder of any Member Guarantor, the Obligor and each Partner hereby ratifies and confirms the execution, delivery and performance by such Member Guarantor of its Member Guarantee and all documents, certificates and other agreements related thereto or contemplated thereby.

 

24.8.

Counterparts.

This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original but all of which together shall constitute one instrument. Each counterpart may consist of a number of copies hereof, each signed by less than all, but together signed by all, of the parties hereto.

 

24.9.

Governing Law.

This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and the rights of the parties shall be governed by, the law of the State of New York excluding choice-of-law principles of the law of such State that would permit the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than such State.

 

24.10.

Jurisdiction and Process; Waiver of Jury Trial.

(a) Each of the Obligor and each Partner irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any New York State or federal court sitting in the Borough of Manhattan, the City of New York, over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Notes. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each of the Obligor and each Partner irrevocably waives and agrees not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise, any claim that it is not subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court and any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.

(b) Each of the Obligor and each Partner agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, that a final judgment in any suit, action or proceeding of the nature referred to in Section 24.10(a) brought in any such court shall be conclusive and binding upon it subject to rights of appeal, as the case may be, and may be enforced in the courts of the United States of America or the State of New York (or any other courts to the jurisdiction of which it or any of its assets is or may be subject) by a suit upon such judgment.

(c) Each of the Obligor and each Partner consents to process being served by or on behalf of any holder of a Note in any suit, action or proceeding of the nature referred to in Section 24.10(a) by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified or priority mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, or delivering a copy thereof in the manner for delivery of notices specified in Section 20, to National Registered Agents, Inc., at 111 Eighth Avenue, New

 

60


York, NY 10011, as its agent for the purpose of accepting service of any process in the United States. Each of the Obligor and each Partner agrees that such service upon receipt (i) shall be deemed in every respect effective service of process upon it in any such suit, action or proceeding and (ii) shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, be taken and held to be valid personal service upon and personal delivery to it. Notices hereunder shall be conclusively presumed received as evidenced by a delivery receipt furnished by the United States Postal Service or any reputable commercial delivery service.

(d) Nothing in this Section 24.10 shall affect the right of any holder of a Note to serve process in any manner permitted by law, or limit any right that the holders of any of the Notes may have to bring proceedings against the Obligor or either Partner in the courts of any appropriate jurisdiction or to enforce in any lawful manner a judgment obtained in one jurisdiction in any other jurisdiction.

(e) Each of the Obligor and each Partner hereby irrevocably appoints National Registered Agents, Inc. to receive for it, and on its behalf, service of process in the United States.

(f) THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION BROUGHT ON OR WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE NOTES OR ANY OTHER DOCUMENT EXECUTED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THEREWITH.

 

24.11.

Obligation to Make Payments in Applicable Currency.

(a) Any payment on account of an amount that is payable under the U.S. Dollar Notes in U.S. Dollars which is made to or for the account of any holder of U.S. Dollar Notes in any other currency, whether as a result of any judgment or order or the enforcement thereof or the realization of any security or the liquidation of the Obligor or either Partner, shall constitute a discharge of the obligation of the Obligor or such Partner under this Agreement or the U.S. Dollar Notes, as the case may be, only to the extent of the amount of U.S. Dollars which such holder could purchase in the foreign exchange markets in London, England, with the amount of such other currency in accordance with normal banking procedures at the rate of exchange prevailing on the London Banking Day following receipt of the payment first referred to above. If the amount of U.S. Dollars that could be so purchased is less than the amount of U.S. Dollars originally due to such holder, the Obligor and the Partners agree to the fullest extent permitted by law, to indemnify and save harmless such holder from and against all loss or damage arising out of or as a result of such deficiency.

(b) Any payment on account of an amount that is payable under the Series G Notes in Australian Dollars which is made to or for the account of any holder of Series G Notes in any other currency, whether as a result of any judgment or order or the enforcement thereof or the realization of any security or the liquidation of the Obligor or either Partner, shall constitute a discharge of the obligation of the Obligor or such Partner under this Agreement or the Series G Notes, as the case may be, only to the extent of the amount of Australian Dollars which such holder could purchase in the foreign exchange markets in London, England, with the amount of such other currency in accordance with normal banking procedures at the rate of exchange prevailing on the London Banking Day following receipt of the payment first referred to above. If the amount of Australian Dollars that could be so purchased is less than the amount of Australian Dollars originally due to such holder, the Obligor and the Partners agree to the fullest extent permitted by law, to indemnify and save harmless such holder from and against all loss or damage arising out of or as a result of such deficiency.

 

61


(c) Costs and expenses payable pursuant to Section 17.1 or 17.2 shall be paid in either U.S. Dollars or Australian Dollars depending on the currency in which such costs and expenses are incurred and billed, subject to the same indemnity set forth in clause (a) above (in the case of U.S. Dollars) or clause (b) above (in the case of Australian Dollars).

(d) Any payment under any provision of this Agreement (other than as specified in clauses (b) and (c) above) shall be in U.S. Dollars and any such payment made in any other currency, whether as a result of any judgment or order or the enforcement thereof or the realization of any security or the liquidation of the Obligor or either Partner, shall constitute a discharge of the obligation of the Obligor or such Partner hereunder only to the extent of the amount of U.S. Dollars which such holder could purchase in the foreign exchange markets in London, England, with the amount of such other currency in accordance with normal banking procedures at the rate of exchange prevailing on the London Banking Day following receipt of the payment first referred to above. If the amount of U.S. Dollars that could be so purchased is less than the amount of U.S. Dollars originally due to such holder, the Obligor and the Partners agree to the fullest extent permitted by law, to indemnify and save harmless such holder from and against all loss or damage arising out of or as a result of such deficiency.

(e) The indemnities contained in the foregoing clauses (a) through (d) shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, constitute obligations separate and independent from the other obligations contained in this Agreement and the Notes and shall give rise to a separate and independent cause of action, shall apply irrespective of any indulgence granted by such holder from time to time and shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding any judgment or order for a liquidated sum in respect of an amount due hereunder, under the Notes or under any judgment or order. As used in this Section 24.11, the term “London Banking Day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday or Sunday or a day on which commercial banks are required or authorized by law to be closed in London, England.

 

24.12.

Exchange Rate.

For the purpose of (i) determining the percentage ownership of Notes under the definition of “Required Holders”, (ii) determining whether the holders of the requisite percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding have approved or consented to any amendment, waiver or consent to be given under this Agreement or the Notes, or have directed the taking of any action provided herein or in the Notes to be taken upon the direction of the holders of a specified percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding and (iii) any other determination of the requisite percentage of the principal amount of any Notes of more than one currency, the principal amount of any outstanding Series G Note shall be deemed to be the equivalent amount in U.S. Dollars calculated by converting such principal amount of Series G Notes into U.S. Dollars at a rate of exchange of U.S.$1.00 = A$0.9715.

 

62


For the purpose of allocating any partial prepayment of Notes or offer of partial prepayment of Notes pursuant to Section 8.2, the principal amount of any outstanding Series G Note shall be deemed to be the equivalent amount in U.S. Dollars calculated by converting such principal amount of Series G Notes into U.S. Dollars at a rate of exchange indicated on the applicable screen of Bloomberg Financial Markets as of the end of the second Business Day immediately preceding the date of such prepayment or offer.
