Acquisition” means any transaction, or any series of related transactions, consummated on or after the date of this Agreement, by which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (a) acquires any business or all or substantially all of the assets of any Person, or division thereof, whether through purchase of assets, merger, amalgamation or otherwise or (b) directly or indirectly acquires (in one transaction or as the most recent transaction in a series of transactions) at least a majority (in number of votes) of the securities of a corporation which have ordinary voting power for the election of members of the board of directors or the equivalent governing body (other than securities having such power only by reason of the happening of a contingency) or a majority (by percentage or voting power) of the outstanding ownership interests of a partnership or limited liability company.
Adjusted LIBO Rate” means, with respect to each Interest Period for a Eurodollar Loan, (i) the rate per annum equal to the London interbank offered rate for deposits in U.S. Dollars appearing on Reuters screen page LIBOR 01 (or on any successor or substitute page of such service or any successor to such service, or such other commercially available source providing such quotations as may be designated by the Administrative Agent from time to time) at approximately 11:00 A.M.

ARTICLE II    

Letters of Credit; Loans
SECTION 2.01.    Several Letters of Credit. (a) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Account Party may request the Issuing Agent, at any time and from time to time on or after the Effective Date and prior to the Commitment Expiration Date, to issue, on behalf of each Lender, for the account of such Account Party and in support of, on a standby basis, Letter of Credit Supportable Obligations of such Account Party to any other Person, and subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth, the Issuing Agent agrees to issue at any time and from time to time on or after the Effective Date and prior to the Commitment Expiration Date one or more multi-bank irrevocable standby letters of credit denominated in Dollars and in the form of Exhibit H or such other form as may be approved by the Issuing Agent which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed in which each Lender, as an issuing bank thereunder, has several (but not joint) obligations in respect of a specified portion of the Stated Amount of such letter of credit (each such letter of credit, a “Several Letter of Credit” and, collectively, the “Several Letters of Credit”). Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and any other instruments and documents contemplated hereby, it is the intent of the parties hereto that all Letters of Credit shall be clean and irrevocable and otherwise in a form sufficient for the beneficiary cedent to take credit on its financial statements for reinsurance recoverables under applicable rules, laws and regulations.
(a)    Each Several Letter of Credit will be issued by the Issuing Agent on behalf of the Lenders and each Lender will participate in each Several Letter of Credit pro rata in accordance with its Applicable Percentage (subject to the provisions in this Agreement regarding Limited Fronting Lenders). The obligations of each Lender under and in respect of each Several Letter of Credit are several, and the failure by any Lender to perform its obligations hereunder or under any Letter of Credit shall not affect the obligations of the respective Account Party toward any other party hereto nor shall any other such party be liable for the failure by such Lender to perform its obligations hereunder or under any Several Letter of Credit.
(b)    Each Several Letter of Credit shall be executed and delivered by the Issuing Agent in the name and on behalf of, and as attorney-in-fact for, each Lender and the Issuing Agent shall act under each Several Letter of Credit, and each Several Letter of Credit shall expressly provide that the Issuing Agent shall act, as the agent of each Lender, to (a) receive drafts, other demands for payment and other documents presented by the beneficiary under such Several Letter of Credit, (b) determine whether such drafts, demands and documents are in compliance with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit and (c) notify such Lender and such Account Party that a valid drawing has been made and the date that the related Several Unpaid Drawing is to be made; provided that the Issuing Agent shall have no obligation or liability for any Several Unpaid Drawing under such Letter of Credit, and each Several Letter of Credit shall expressly so provide. Each Lender hereby irrevocably appoints and designates the Issuing Agent as its attorney-in-fact, acting through any duly authorized officer of the Issuing Agent, to execute and deliver in the name and on behalf of such Lender each Several Letter of Credit to be issued by such Lender hereunder. Promptly upon the request of the Issuing Agent, each Lender will furnish to the Issuing Agent such powers of attorney or other evidence as any beneficiary of any Several Letter of Credit may reasonably request in order to demonstrate that the Issuing Agent has the power to act as attorney-in-fact for such Lender to execute and deliver such Several Letter of Credit.
(c)    Each Lender represents and warrants that each Several Letter of Credit constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Lender enforceable in accordance with its terms, provided that the enforceability thereof is subject to general principles of equity and to bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally.

28








(d)    
(i)    Each Lender represents that on the date of this Agreement (or, if later, the date such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), it is a NAIC Approved Bank. Each Lender agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts in order to, at all times, (x) be listed on the NAIC Bank List or (y) in the case of any Lender that is not on the Effective Date or that after the Effective Date ceases to be listed on the NAIC Bank List, maintain in effect an agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit J (such agreement, a “Limited Fronting Lender Agreement”) with a Person which is listed on the NAIC Bank List to act as a Limited Fronting Lender for such Lender in respect of its obligations under the Several Letters of Credit (which Person, prior to entering in such Limited Fronting Lender Agreement, shall be subject to the prior written consent of each of the Account Parties and the Administrative Agent, such consent, in each case, shall not be unreasonably withheld); provided that if any Lender that is not listed (or ceases to be listed) on the NAIC Bank List fails to maintain a Limited Fronting Lender Agreement (each such Lender that fails to maintain a Limited Fronting Lender Agreement, a “Non-NAIC Lender”), then such Lender shall be subject to Section 2.14(b). If any Lender shall enter into a Limited Fronting Lender Agreement hereunder at any time, it shall promptly furnish a copy thereof to the Account Parties and the Administrative Agent. In connection with the execution or termination of any Limited Fronting Lender Agreement, the Issuing Agent is authorized to amend or replace each outstanding Several Letter of Credit to add or remove the applicable Lender and Limited Fronting Lender, as the case may be. Each Lender shall promptly provide evidence to the Administrative Agent or the Account Parties of such Lender’s compliance with the requirements of this Section 2.01(e) upon request by the Administrative Agent or any Account Party.
(ii)    If at any time any Lender shall cease to be a NAIC Approved Bank, such Lender shall promptly notify the Account Parties and the Administrative Agent and forthwith comply with its obligations under this Section 2.01(e). Upon receipt of such notice, any Account Party may request to have a Limited Fronting Lender act as fronting bank for such Non-NAIC Approved Bank with respect to any Several Letter of Credit Exposure attributable to such Non-NAIC Approved Bank. A Limited Fronting Lender may, in its sole discretion, agree to act as a fronting bank with respect to such Several Letter of Credit Exposure, but has no obligation to do so.
(iii)    In the event a Lender agrees to act as a Limited Fronting Lender pursuant to Section 2.01(e), the Issuing Agent is authorized, upon any Account Party’s request, to amend or replace each outstanding Several Letter of Credit to remove the applicable Non-NAIC Approved Bank and add the applicable Limited Fronting Lender to reflect the application of this Section 2.01(e) and to issue new Several Letters of Credit reflecting the application of this Section 2.01(e); provided that, with respect to any issued and outstanding Several Letters of Credit at the time such Lender ceases to be a NAIC Approved Bank, no Limited Fronting Lender Agreement shall be effective until all such Several Letters of Credit are either amended or returned and reissued, in each case to give effect to such Limited Fronting Lender Agreement. With respect to any Several Letter of Credit as to which a Lender acts as a Limited Fronting Lender for a Non-NAIC Approved Bank, the applicable Limited Fronting Lender shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to such Non-NAIC Approved Bank, and such Non-NAIC Approved Bank shall be deemed irrevocably and unconditionally to have purchased and received from such Limited Fronting Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in such Non-NAIC Approved Bank’s Several Letter of Credit Exposure.

29








(iv)    No Non-NAIC Approved Bank shall be entitled to receive any Commitment Fee for any period during which that Lender is a Non-NAIC Approved Bank (and the Account Parties shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Non-NAIC Approved Bank), in each case unless such Lender has in effect a Limited Fronting Lender Agreement with another Lender which is listed on the NAIC Bank List to act as a Limited Fronting Lender in accordance with this Section 2.01(e).
(v)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, at any time that a Lender is a Non-NAIC Lender, the Account Parties may request that Several Letters of Credit be issued or renewed, extended or amended, as applicable, by the Lenders on an adjusted pro rata basis that excludes the Commitment of the Non-NAIC Lender in accordance with the definition of “Applicable Percentage”; provided, that if the Account Parties elect to request Several Letters of Credit be issued, renewed, extended or amended on an adjusted pro rata basis in accordance with the definition of “Applicable Percentage”, (i) such issuance, renewal, extension or adjustment shall be made only to the extent that it would not cause the Credit Exposure owing to any Lender to exceed such Lender’s Commitment and (ii) thereafter, if the Company elects to request a Loan, such Loan shall be advanced as provided in Section 2.19(c).
(e)    In the event any Participating Issuer purchases a participation in the Letter(s) of Credit of the Limited Fronting Lender pursuant to Section 2.01(e), then, without any further action on the part of any party, the Limited Fronting Lender grants to such Participating Issuer, and such Participating Issuer hereby acquires from the Limited Fronting Lender, a participation in the Limited Fronting Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the relevant Letters of Credit attributable to such Participating Issuer for which the Limited Fronting Lender has agreed to act as a Limited Fronting Lender hereunder. Each Participating Issuer purchasing a participation hereunder acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire such participations in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment or extension of any Letter of Credit or the occurrence and continuance of a Default or reduction or termination of the Commitments. In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, such Participating Issuer hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for account of the Limited Fronting Lender an amount equal to the amount of each payment made by the Limited Fronting Lender in respect of the portion of such Letter of Credit in which such Participating Issuer holds a participation, promptly upon the request of the Limited Fronting Lender at any time from the time such payment is made until such payment is reimbursed by the Company or at any time after any reimbursement payment is required to be refunded to the Company for any reason or at any time as may be set forth in the Limited Fronting Lender Agreement between the Limited Fronting Lender and such Participating Issuer. Such payment by such Participating Issuer shall be made for account of the Limited Fronting Lender without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. To the extent that any Participating Issuer has made payments pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the Limited Fronting Lender in respect of any participation interests purchased hereunder in respect of any Letter of Credit, promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from the Company or any other Account Party pursuant to Section 2.05 in respect of such Letter of Credit, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the Limited Fronting Lender and such Participating Issuer, in each case as their interests may appear. Any payment made by a Participating Issuer in respect of its participation pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the Limited Fronting Lender for any payment made in any respect of any drawing under a Letter of Credit shall not relieve the Company or any other Account Party of its obligation to reimburse the amount of such drawing pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

30








SECTION 2.02.    Fronted Letters of Credit. Subject to and upon the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Account Party may request that any Fronting Lender at any time and from time to time on or after the Effective Date and prior to the Commitment Expiration Date issue for its own account a letter of credit denominated in Dollars for the account of such Account Party and in support of, on a standby basis, Letter of Credit Supportable Obligations of such Account Party to any other Person, and in its sole discretion and subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth, each Fronting Lender may agree to issue at any time and from time to time on or after the Effective Date and prior to the Commitment Expiration Date one or more irrevocable standby letters of credit denominated in Dollars and in such form as may be approved by such Fronting Lender, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed (each such letter of credit, a “Fronted Letter of Credit” and, collectively, the “Fronted Letters of Credit”). Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and any other instruments and documents contemplated hereby, it is the intent of the parties hereto that all Letters of Credit shall be clean and irrevocable and otherwise in a form sufficient for the beneficiary cedent to take credit on its financial statements for reinsurance recoverables under applicable rules, laws and regulations. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no Fronting Lender shall have any obligation hereunder to issue any Letter of Credit the proceeds of which would be made available to any Person (i) to fund any activity or business of or with any Sanctioned Person, or in any country or territory that, at the time of such funding, is a Sanctioned Country or (ii) in any manner that would result in a violation of any Sanctions by any party to this Agreement.
(a)    Immediately upon the issuance by any Fronting Lender of any Fronted Letter of Credit, such Fronting Lender shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each Lender other than such Fronting Lender (each such Lender, in its capacity under this Section 2.02(b), a “Fronting Participant”), and each such Fronting Participant shall be deemed irrevocably and unconditionally to have purchased and received from such Fronting Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such Fronting Participant’s Applicable Percentage, in such Fronted Letter of Credit, each drawing made thereunder and the obligations of each Account Party under this Agreement with respect thereto, and any security therefor or guaranty pertaining thereto. Upon any change in the Commitments or Applicable Percentages of the Lenders pursuant to this Agreement, it is hereby agreed that, with respect to all outstanding Fronted Letters of Credit and Fronted Unpaid Drawings, there shall be an automatic adjustment to the participations pursuant to this Section 2.02 to reflect the new Applicable Percentages of the assignor and assignee Lender or of all Lenders with Commitments, as the case may be.
(b)    In the event that any Fronting Lender makes any payment under any Fronted Letter of Credit and the respective Account Party shall not have reimbursed such amount in full to such Fronting Lender pursuant to Section 2.05, such Fronting Lender shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent, which shall promptly notify each Fronting Participant, of such failure, and each Fronting Participant shall promptly and unconditionally pay to such Fronting Lender the amount of such Fronting Participant’s Applicable Percentage of such unreimbursed payment in Dollars and in immediately available funds. If, prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on any Business Day, the Administrative Agent so notifies any Fronting Participant required to fund a payment under a Fronted Letter of Credit, such Fronting Participant shall make available to such Fronting Lender in Dollars and in immediately available funds such Fronting Participant’s Applicable Percentage of the amount of such payment on such Business Day (or, if notice is given after 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on any Business Day, on the next Business Day). If and to the extent such Fronting Participant shall not have so made its Applicable Percentage of the amount of such payment available to such Fronting Lender, such Fronting Participant agrees to pay to such Fronting Lender, forthwith on demand, such amount, together with interest thereon, for each day from such date to but excluding the date such amount is paid to such Fronting Lender at the overnight Federal Funds Effective Rate. The failure of any Fronting Participant to make available to such Fronting Lender its Applicable Percentage of any payment under any Fronted Letter of Credit shall not relieve any other Fronting Participant of its obligation hereunder to make available to such Fronting Lender its Applicable Percentage of any payment on the date required,

31








as specified above, but no Fronting Participant shall be responsible for the failure of any other Fronting Participant to make available to such Fronting Lender such other Fronting Participant’s Applicable Percentage of any such payment.
(c)    Whenever any Fronting Lender receives any payment by any Account Party as to which it has also received payments from the Fronting Participants pursuant to paragraph (c) above, such Fronting Lender shall forward such payment to the Administrative Agent, which in turn shall distribute to each Fronting Participant which has paid its Applicable Percentage thereof, in Dollars and in immediately available funds, an amount equal to such Fronting Participant’s share (based upon the amount funded by such Fronting Participant to the aggregate amount funded by all Fronting Participants and retained by the Fronting Lender) of the principal amount of such payment and interest thereon accruing after the purchase of the respective participations.
(d)    The obligations of the Fronting Participants to make payments to each Fronting Lender with respect to Fronted Letters of Credit issued by it shall be irrevocable and not subject to any qualification or exception whatsoever and shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement under all circumstances, including any of the following circumstances:
(i)    any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any amendment, supplement or modification hereof;
(ii)    the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right which the Fronting Participant or any of its Affiliates may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a Fronted Letter of Credit, any transferee of any Fronted Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent, any Fronting Lender, any Fronting Participant, any Lender, or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, any Fronted Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transactions (including any underlying transaction between any Account Party or any of its Affiliates and the beneficiary named in any such Fronted Letter of Credit);
(iii)    any draft, certificate or any other document presented under any Fronted Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect;
(iv)    the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of this Agreement;
(v)    the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default; or
(vi)    any matter or event set forth in Section 2.05(b).
(e)    Upon the request of any Fronting Participant, each Fronting Lender shall furnish to such Fronting Participant copies of any Fronted Letter of Credit issued by it and such other documentation as may reasonably be requested by such Fronting Participant.

32








SECTION 2.03.    Conditions to the Issuance of all Letters of Credit. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Article II, no LC Issuer shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if at the time of such issuance:
(i)    any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall purport by its terms to enjoin or restrain such LC Issuer from issuing such Letter of Credit or any requirement of law applicable to such LC Issuer or any Lender or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such LC Issuer or any Lender shall prohibit such LC Issuer or any Lenders refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the applicable type of letter of credit or shall impose upon such LC Issuer or any Lender with respect to the applicable type of letter of credit any restriction or reserve, capital or liquidity requirement (for which such LC Issuer or such LC Issuer or such Lender is not otherwise compensated) not in effect on the Effective Date, or any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable, in effect or known to such LC Issuer, as of the Effective Date;
(ii)    the conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.02 are not satisfied at that time; or
(iii)     such LC Issuer shall have received notice from any Account Party or the Required Lenders prior to the issuance of such Letter of Credit of the type described in clause (v) of Section 2.03(b).

(i)    no Letter of Credit shall be issued at any time when the aggregate Credit Exposures of all Lenders taken together exceed (or would after giving effect to such issuance exceed) the Total Commitment at such time;
(ii)    no Letter of Credit shall be issued at any time when the Credit Exposure of any Lender would exceed such Lender’s Commitment at such time;

(iv)    each Letter of Credit shall have an expiry date occurring not later than the earlier of (i) one year after such Letter of Credit’s date of issuance or (ii) one year following the Commitment Expiration Date; provided that any Letter of Credit with a one-year tenor may provide (subject to Section 2.07) for the extension thereof for additional one-year periods (which shall in no event extend beyond one year following the Commitment Expiration Date), unless the respective LC Issuer has delivered a Notice of Non-Extension, in accordance with the terms of such Letter of Credit, that such Letter of Credit will not be extended;
(v)    no LC Issuer will issue any Letter of Credit after it has received written notice from any Account Party or the Required Lenders stating that a Default or an Event of Default exists until such time as the Issuing Agent shall have received a written notice of (x) rescission of such notice from the party or parties originally delivering the same or (y) a waiver of such Default or Event of Default by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02); and

33








(vi)    the Issuing Agent shall not issue any Several Letter of Credit in respect of which there is a Limited Fronting Lender if the applicable Participating Issuer is a Defaulting Lender unless such Limited Fronting Lender has entered into arrangements satisfactory to it with the Company and/or such Defaulting Lender to eliminate such Limited Fronting Lender’s risk with respect to such Defaulting Lender in respect of each Several Letter of Credit hereunder in respect of which such Limited Fronting Lender acts as issuer for such Defaulting Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such Several Letter of Credit.
(c)    Subject to and on the terms and conditions set forth herein, each LC Issuer is hereby authorized by each Account Party and the Lenders to arrange for the issuance of any Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 2.01(a) or 2.02(a) and the amendment of any Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 2.08 and/or 10.02 by:

(iv)    in the case of Several Letters of Credit, executing such Letter of Credit on behalf of each Lender and following such execution delivering such Letter of Credit to the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit.
(d)    Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the LC Issuer and the applicable Account Party when a Letter of Credit is issued and subject to applicable laws, (i) each standby Letter of Credit shall be governed by the “International Standby Practices 1998” (ISP98) (or such later revision as may be published by the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice on any date any Letter of Credit may be issued), (ii) each documentary Letter of Credit shall be governed by the Uniform Customs and Practices for Documentary Credits (2007 Revision), International Chamber of Commerce Publication No. 600 (or such later revision as may be published by the International Chamber of Commerce on any date any Letter of Credit may be issued) and (iii) each Account Party shall specify the foregoing in each letter of credit application submitted for the issuance of a Letter of Credit.

34








SECTION 2.04.    Letter of Credit Requests. (a) Whenever an Account Party desires that a Letter of Credit be issued for its account, such Account Party shall give the Administrative Agent and the respective LC Issuer written or electronic notice (including by way of facsimile, e-mail or other electronic transmission) thereof prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time) at least (x) three Business Days in respect of Fronted Letters of Credit and (y) three Business Days in respect of Several Letters of Credit, in each case, prior to the proposed date of issuance (which shall be a Business Day), which notice shall be in the form of Exhibit F or such other form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent (each, a “Letter of Credit Request”). Each Letter of Credit Request shall include any other documents as the respective LC Issuer customarily and generally requires in connection therewith.
(a)    The making of each Letter of Credit Request shall be deemed to be a representation and warranty by the respective Account Party and the Company that such Letter of Credit may be issued in accordance with, and it will not violate the requirements applicable to such Account Party and/or such Letter of Credit of, Section 2.01 or 2.02, as the case may be, and Section 2.03.

35








SECTION 2.05.    Agreement to Repay Letter of Credit Drawings. (a) Each Account Party severally agrees to reimburse (x) each Lender, by making payment to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds, for any payment or disbursement made by such Lender under any Several Letter of Credit issued for its account (each such amount so paid or disbursed until reimbursed, a “Several Unpaid Drawing”) and (y) the Fronting Lender directly for any payment or disbursement made by such Fronting Lender under any Fronted Letter of Credit issued for its account (each such amount so paid or disbursed until reimbursed, a “Fronted Unpaid Drawing”), in each case, with interest on the amount so paid or disbursed by such Lender, to the extent not reimbursed prior to 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date of such payment or disbursement, from and including the date paid or disbursed to but not including the date such Lender is reimbursed therefor at a rate per annum which shall be the Alternate Base Rate as in effect from time to time (plus an additional 2% per annum, payable on demand, if not reimbursed by the third Business Day after the date on which the respective Account Party receives notice from the respective LC Issuer of such payment or disbursement).
(a)    Each Account Party’s obligation under this Section 2.05 to reimburse each Lender with respect to Unpaid Drawings of such Account Party (including, in each case, interest thereon) shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment which such Account Party may have or have had against such Lender, or any LC Issuer, including any defense based upon the failure of any drawing under a Letter of Credit to conform to the terms of the Letter of Credit or any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such drawing; provided, however, that no Account Party shall be obligated to reimburse any Lender for any wrongful payment made by such Lender under a Letter of Credit as a result of acts or omissions constituting bad faith, willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of such Lender (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable judgment).
(b)    In determining whether to pay under any Letter of Credit, no LC Issuer shall have any obligation relative to the other Lenders other than to confirm that any documents required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit appear to have been delivered and that they appear to substantially comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by any LC Issuer under or in connection with any Letter of Credit, if taken or omitted in the absence of such LC Issuer’s bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable judgment), shall not create for such LC Issuer any resulting liability to any Account Party or any of its Affiliates or any Lender.
SECTION 2.06.    Increased Costs. If a Change in Law shall (i) impose, modify or make applicable any reserve, deposit, capital adequacy, liquidity or similar requirement (including any insurance charge or other assessment) against letters of credit issued by or participated in, assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, such Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate), or (ii) impose on such Lender or the London interbank market any other conditions directly or indirectly affecting this Agreement, any Letter of Credit or Loans made by such Lender, or (iii) subject the Administrative Agent, any LC Issuer or any Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, (C) Connection Income Taxes, and (D) Other Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; and the result of any of the foregoing is to (A) increase the cost to the Administrative Agent, such LC Issuer or such Lender of (1) issuing, maintaining or participating in any Letter of Credit or (2) making or maintaining any Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan), (B) reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by the Administrative Agent, such LC Issuer or such Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise) or (C) reduce the rate of return on its capital with respect to Letters of Credit and/or the Loans to a level below that which the Administrative Agent, such LC Issuer or such Lender would have achieved

36








but for such Change in Law (and taking into consideration the Administrative Agent’s, such LC Issuer’s or such Lender’s policies with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity (or those of its holding company), as generally applied), then, upon written demand to the applicable Account Party by the Administrative Agent, such LC Issuer or such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), such Account Party shall pay promptly (but in any event within five (5) Business Days) to the Administrative Agent (on behalf of such LC Issuer or such Lender), such LC Issuer or such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate the Administrative Agent, such LC Issuer or such Lender for such increased cost or reduction. A certificate submitted to the applicable Account Party by such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), setting forth (i) the basis, in reasonable detail, for the determination of such additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender as aforesaid and (ii) the basis, in reasonable detail, for the computation of such amount or amounts, which shall be consistently applied and shall be final and conclusive and binding on the applicable Account Party absent manifest error, although the failure to deliver any such certificate shall not release or diminish such Account Party’s obligations to pay additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.06 upon subsequent receipt of such certificate; provided that such certificate does not extend to information and detail that such Lender is not legally allowed to disclose, is confidential or price-sensitive in relation to listed shares or other instruments issued by such Lender or any of its Affiliates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Account Party shall be required to compensate any Lender pursuant to this Section 2.06 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies such Account Party of the applicable Change in Law; provided that if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then such 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof. If any Lender requests compensation under this Section 2.06, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different Applicable Lending Office for funding or booking its Loans or issuing Letters of Credit hereunder if, in the sole judgment of such Lender, such designation (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable under this Section 2.06 in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Account Parties hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with such designation.
SECTION 2.07.    Letter of Credit Expiration and Extensions. Each Lender acknowledges that to the extent provided under the terms of any Letter of Credit, the expiration date of such Letter of Credit will be automatically extended for additional one-year periods, without written amendment, unless (a) such extension would cause such Letter of Credit to remain outstanding on or after the one-year anniversary of the Commitment Expiration Date or (b) at least 30 days (or such other period required under or by any Legal Requirement or Applicable Insurance Regulatory Authority) prior to the expiration date of such Letter of Credit, notice is given by the respective LC Issuer in accordance with the terms of the respective Letter of Credit (a “Notice of Non-Extension”) that the expiration date of such Letter of Credit will not be extended beyond its current expiration date. The respective LC Issuer will give Notices of Non-Extension as to any or all outstanding Letters of Credit if requested to do so by the Required Lenders pursuant to Article VII. The respective LC Issuer will give Notices of Non-Extension as to all outstanding Letters of Credit (i) if the Commitment Expiration Date has occurred and (ii) on the date necessary to prevent the extension described in the foregoing clause (b). The respective LC Issuer will send a copy of each Notice of Non-Extension to the respective Account Party concurrently with delivery thereof to the respective beneficiary, unless prohibited by law from doing so.

37








SECTION 2.08.    Changes to Stated Amount. At any time when any Letter of Credit is outstanding, at the request of the respective Account Party, the Issuing Agent will enter into an amendment increasing or reducing the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit, provided that (i) in no event shall the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit be increased (x) to an amount which would cause the aggregate Credit Exposures of all Lenders taken together to exceed the Total Commitment at such time, (y) with respect to a Fronted Letter of Credit, without the prior written consent of the LC Issuer in respect of such Letter of Credit to an amount which would cause the Letter of Credit Outstandings in respect of all Fronted Letters of Credit issued by the Fronting Lender to exceed $10,000,000 or (z) to an amount which would cause the Credit Exposure of any Lender to exceed such Lender’s Commitment at such time, (ii) the Stated Amount of a Letter of Credit may not be increased at any time if the conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.02 are not satisfied at such time and (iii) the Stated Amount of a Letter of Credit may not be increased at any time after the Commitment Expiration Date.
SECTION 2.09.    Termination and Reduction of Commitments. (a) Unless previously terminated, the Total Commitment (and the Commitment of each Lender) shall terminate on the Commitment Expiration Date.
(a)    The Company may, without premium or penalty (but subject to break funding payments required by Section 2.25), at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Total Commitment; provided that (i) each reduction of the Total Commitment shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and not less than $5,000,000 and (ii) the Company shall not terminate or reduce the Total Commitment if, after giving effect to such termination or reduction and any concurrent prepayment of the Loans in accordance with Section 2.22, the aggregate Credit Exposures of all Lenders taken together would exceed the Total Commitment. Each such reduction shall be applied to the Commitments of the Lenders on a pro rata basis based on the amount of such Lenders’ respective Commitments.
(b)    The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Total Commitment under paragraph (b) of this Section 2.09 at least three Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Company pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of Commitments may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or other alternative financing or other transactions specified therein, in which case such notice may be revoked without penalty prior to the specified time if such condition is not satisfied (each such notice a “Conditional Termination Notice”). Any termination or reduction of the Total Commitment (or the Commitments of any Lender) shall be permanent. Each reduction of the Total Commitment shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments.

38








SECTION 2.10.    Mandatory Prepayment; Cash Collateralization. (a) If (i) as of the Commitment Expiration Date, any Letter of Credit may for any reason remain outstanding, (ii) at any time, the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Outstandings exceeds the Total Commitment as then in effect, (iii) any Event of Default occurs and is continuing and the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders, as applicable, require the Company and the other Account Parties to deposit in an account (which account may be a securities account with the meaning of Section 8-501 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in the State of New York) with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Lenders (any such account, a “Collateral Account”), amounts of cash and Cash Equivalents, to be held as security for each Account Party’s reimbursement obligations in respect of Letters of Credit then outstanding or (iv) an Event of Default set forth under Section 7.05 occurs and is continuing, then the Company shall, or shall cause one or more other Account Parties to, deposit in a Collateral Account on such date an amount of cash or Cash Equivalents to be held as additional security for the obligations of each of the Account Parties hereunder such that the amount of cash and Cash Equivalents in such Collateral Account applicable to each Account Party would equal the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Outstandings and other obligations in respect of Letters of Credit, or in the case of clause (ii) above, the excess referred to in such clause (ii). If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that any funds held in a Collateral Account pursuant to this Section 2.10(a) are subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Agents (on behalf of the Lenders) or that the total amount of such funds is less than the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Outstandings and other obligations of the Account Parties hereunder, or in the case of clause (ii) above, the excess referred to in such clause (ii), the Company shall, or shall cause one or more Account Parties to, forthwith promptly upon demand (but in any event within five Business Days) by the Administrative Agent, pay to the Administrative Agent, as additional funds to be deposited and held in a Collateral Account as aforesaid, an amount equal to the excess of (a)  the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Outstandings and other obligations in respect of Letters of Credit of the Account Parties hereunder over (b) the total amount of cash and Cash Equivalents deposited in the Collateral Account as aforesaid that the Administrative Agent reasonably determines to be free and clear of any such right and claim, or in the case of clause (ii) above, the excess referred to in such clause (ii). With respect to any payment to an account required by clause (iii) of the first sentence of this Section 2.10(a), such payment shall (to the extent not applied to the applicable reimbursement obligations) be returned to the Company within three Business Days after the applicable Event of Default shall have been cured or waived.
(a)    The Company and the Account Parties hereby grant to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the LC Issuers and Lenders, a Lien upon and security interest in the Collateral Account and all amounts held therein from time to time as security for the Letter of Credit Exposure of the Account Parties, and for application to the aggregate obligations under Letters of Credit, as and when the same shall arise. The Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account for the benefit of the LC Issuers and the Lenders and the Company and the Account Parties shall have no interest therein except as set forth in Section 2.10(c). Other than any interest on the investment of such amounts in Cash Equivalents, which investments shall be made at the direction of the Company (unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, in which case the determination as to investments shall be made at the option and in the discretion of the Administrative Agent), amounts in the Collateral Account shall not bear interest. Interest and profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account.
(b)    In the event of a drawing, and subsequent payment by any LC Issuer, under any Letter of Credit at any time during which any amounts are held in the applicable Collateral Account, the Administrative Agent will deliver to such LC Issuer an amount equal to the Reimbursement Obligation created as a result of such payment (or, if the amounts so held are less than such Reimbursement Obligation, the remaining amount in any Collateral Account). If the Account Parties are required to provide cash collateral pursuant hereto, such amount (including interest and profits), to the extent not applied as aforesaid, shall be

39








returned to the Company, provided that after giving effect to such return (i) the aggregate Letter of Credit Exposure would not exceed the Total Commitments at such time and (ii) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at such time. If the Account Parties are required to provide cash collateral as a result of an Event of Default, such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to the Account Parties within three Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived.
(c)    If on any date the aggregate Credit Exposures exceed the Total Commitment as then in effect, the Company shall (i) first, prepay on such date the principal amount of outstanding Loans in amount equal to the lesser of (x) the amount of any such excess and (y) the principal amount of all outstanding Loans at such time and (ii) second, cash collateralize any remaining amount of such excess in the manner specified in clause (a) above.
(d)    If on any date the aggregate Loan Exposures exceed the Loan Sublimit, the Company shall prepay on such date the principal amount of outstanding Loans in amount equal to the lesser of (x) the amount of any such excess and (y) the principal amount of all outstanding Loans at such time.
(e)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained elsewhere in this Agreement, all outstanding Loans shall be repaid in full on the Commitment Expiration Date.
SECTION 2.11.    Fees. (a) Each Account Party jointly and severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender a commitment fee (the “Commitment Fee”), which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate with respect to the Commitment Fee on the daily amount of the unutilized Commitment of such Lender during the period from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the Commitment Expiration Date; provided that no Commitment Fee shall accrue on the Commitment of a Defaulting Lender so long as such Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender. Accrued commitment fees shall be payable in arrears on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year and on the Commitment Expiration Date, commencing on the first such date to occur after the date hereof. All Commitment Fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
(a)    (i) The Company agrees to pay to each Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Company and the applicable Agent, and (ii) the Company agrees to pay to each Limited Fronting Lender a fee in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Company and such Limited Fronting Lender pursuant to the terms and conditions of the applicable Limited Fronting Lender Agreement.
(b)    Each Account Party severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for pro rata distribution to each Lender (based on their respective Applicable Percentages), a fee in respect of each Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Account Party (the “Letter of Credit Fee”) computed at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Rate with respect to the Letter of Credit Fee on the daily Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit. Accrued Letter of Credit Fees shall be due and payable in arrears on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year and upon the first day after the termination of the Total Commitment upon which no Letters of Credit remain outstanding. All Letter of Credit Fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, during any period in which the Limited Fronting Lender acts as a confirming bank for any Non-NAIC Approved Bank pursuant to Section 2.01(e), the Letter of Credit Fee payable to such Non-NAIC Approved Bank shall be reduced by a percentage per annum to be agreed by the Limited Fronting Lender and such Non-NAIC Approved Bank as set forth in the applicable Limited Fronting Lender Agreement, and the Limited Fronting

40








Lender shall receive the amount of such reduction from the Account Party for its own account as a fronting fee.
(c)    Each Account Party severally agrees to pay to the Fronting Lender, for its own account, a fronting fee in respect of, and fees with respect to the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of, or processing of drawings under, each Fronted Letter of Credit issued by the Fronting Lender for the account of such Account Party, in each case in amounts and on dates as shall have separately been agreed to by the Company and such Fronting Lender. Each Account Party severally agrees to pay to the Issuing Agent fees with respect to the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of, and processing of drawings under, each Several Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Account Party, in each case in amounts and on dates as shall have separately been agreed to by the Company and the Issuing Agent.
(d)    All fees payable hereunder shall be paid on the dates due, in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent for distribution to the Persons entitled thereto as set forth above. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances. If any fee or other amount payable by any Account Party hereunder is not paid when due, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate plus 2% per annum.
(e)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.11, for so long as a Lender is a Defaulting Lender, no fees hereunder shall accrue or be payable to such Lender until such Lender ceases to be a Defaulting Lender.
SECTION 2.12.    Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Account Party under any Credit Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Taxes except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of the applicable withholding agent) requires the withholding or deduction of any Tax from any such payment, then (i) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax or Other Tax, the sum payable by the applicable Account Party shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative Agent, Issuing Agent or Lender (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such withholding or deductions been made, (ii) the applicable withholding agent shall make such withholding or deductions and (iii) the applicable withholding agent shall timely pay the full amount withheld or deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(a)    In addition, the applicable Account Party shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(b)    Each Account Party severally (and not jointly) agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Agent and each Lender within 10 Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) paid or payable by such recipient and any penalties, interest and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability (with reasonable detail) delivered to any Account Party by a Lender or by the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(c)    As soon as reasonably practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by any Account Party to a Governmental Authority, such Account Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority

41








evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(d)    (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Credit Document shall deliver to the applicable Account Party and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by such Account Party or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Account Party or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by an Account Party or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by such Account Party or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Account Party or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.12(e)(ii)(A) and (ii)(B) and 2.12(h) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that the Account Party is the Company or a U.S. Person,
(A) any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to such Account Party and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Account Party or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
(B) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Account Party and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Account Party or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
(1) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Credit Document, executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Credit Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
(2) executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(3) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the Company or Account Party within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in

42








Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable; or
(4) to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-2 or Exhibit I-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner; and
(C) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Account Party and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Account Party or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Account Party or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made.
Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Account Party and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(e)    If the Administrative Agent or a Lender determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by any Account Party or with respect to which such Account Party has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.12, it shall pay over such refund to such Account Party (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Account Party under this Section 2.12 with respect to the Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender incurred in obtaining such refund and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that such Account Party, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Account Party (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.12(f) in no event will the Administrative Agent or any Lender be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 2.12(f) the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender in a less favorable net after-Tax position than it would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This Section shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to such Account Party or any other Person.
(f)    Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to

43








the extent that any Account Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Account Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.04(c) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this Section 2.12(g).
(g)    If a payment made to a Lender under this Agreement or any Credit Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the applicable Account Party and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Account Party or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Account Party or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Account Party and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 2.12(h), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
(h)    For purposes of this Section 2.12, the term “Lender” includes any LC Issuer and the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.

44








SECTION 2.13.    Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set‑offs. (a) Each Account Party shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or of amounts payable under Section 2.06 or 2.12 or otherwise, except as expressly set forth in Section 2.05) prior to 12:00 noon (or, in the case of any prepayment or repayment in full of all outstanding Letters of Credit and/or all outstanding Loans, 2:00 p.m.), New York City time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim in Dollars. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent at its offices at 303 Peachtree Street, N.E., Atlanta, Georgia 30308 (or such other location as to which the Administrative Agent shall have given written notice to the Account Parties and the Lenders, except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.06, 2.12 and 10.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient its Applicable Percentage of such payment (or other applicable share provided under this Agreement) promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension.
(a)    If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal then due to such parties.
(b)    If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Unpaid Drawings, Loans or any fees payable pursuant to Section 2.11 resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of such obligations then due and owed to such Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in such obligations of the respective Account Party or the Company, as the case may be, owed to such Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably; provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by any Account Party pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Commitment or Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to any Account Party or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply). Each Account Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against such Account Party rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Account Party in the amount of such participation.
(c)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the relevant Account Party prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that such Account Party will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Account Party has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders the amount due. In such event, if the relevant Account Party has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders severally agrees to repay to the

45








Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
(d)    If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.13(d), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Section until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.
SECTION 2.14.    Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) If any Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent requests compensation under Section 2.06, or if each Account Party is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.06 or Section 2.12, then such Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for issuing or funding its Letters of Credit hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.06 or 2.12, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent. Each Account Party hereby jointly and severally agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender, LC Issuer or the Administrative Agent in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(a)    If any Lender shall become a Defaulting Lender or a Non-NAIC Lender or requests compensation under Section 2.06, or if any Account Party is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or LC Issuer or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender or LC Issuer pursuant to Section 2.06 or Section 2.12, then, in each case, the Company, at its sole expense and effort, shall have the right, if no Default or Event of Default then exists, to replace such Lender or LC Issuer (the “Replaced Lender”), with one or more Person or Persons (collectively, the “Replacement Lender”) reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent at which time the Replaced Lender shall assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 10.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to the Replacement Lender; provided that (i) at the time of any replacement pursuant to this Section 2.14, the Replacement Lender and the Replaced Lender shall enter into one or more Assignment and Assumptions pursuant to Section 10.04(b) (and with all fees payable pursuant to said Section 10.04(b) to be paid by the Replacement Lender) pursuant to which the Replacement Lender shall acquire all of the Commitments and outstanding Loans of the Replaced Lender and, in connection therewith, shall pay to the Replaced Lender in respect thereof an amount equal to the sum of (A) an amount equal to (i) all Unpaid Drawings that have been funded by (and not reimbursed to) such Replaced Lender, together with all then unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time and (ii) the principal amount of, and all accrued but unpaid interest on, all outstanding Loans of the Replaced Lender and (B) an amount equal to all accrued, but theretofore unpaid, fees owing to the Replaced Lender pursuant to Section 2.11; (ii) all obligations of each Account Party under this Agreement owing to the Replaced Lender (other than those specifically described in clause (i) above in respect of which the assignment purchase price has been, or is concurrently being, paid), including all amounts owing to the Replaced Lender under Section 2.25 as a result of the assignment of its Loans under clause (i) above, shall be paid in full to such Replaced Lender concurrently with such replacement; (iii) no assignment pursuant to this Section 2.14 shall be effective until all of the then outstanding Several Letters of Credit are returned by each respective beneficiary to the Issuing Agent for cancellation in exchange for new or amended Several Letters of Credit which give effect to such assignment (it being understood that to the extent the respective beneficiaries do not consent to such

46








assignment, such assignment cannot occur); (iv) the Company shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and each Fronting Lender, which consents shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; (v) such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments; and (vi) no Lender shall be required to become a Replaced Lender if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply. Upon the execution of the respective Assignment and Assumption, the payment of amounts referred to in clauses (i) and (ii) above and the return, and cancellation and exchange of each then outstanding Several Letter of Credit as provided above and, if so requested by the Replacement Lender, delivery to the Replacement Lender of the appropriate promissory note or notes executed by the Company, the Replacement Lender shall become a Lender hereunder and the Replaced Lender shall cease to constitute a Lender hereunder, except with respect to indemnification provisions applicable to the Replaced Lender under this Agreement, which shall survive as to such Replaced Lender. For the avoidance of doubt, no Replaced Lender shall be required to execute, sign or deliver any document or assignment in order to be replaced in accordance with this Section 2.14.
SECTION 2.15.    [Reserved]
SECTION 2.16.    Loans. Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth, each Lender severally agrees, at any time and from time to time on and after the Effective Date and prior to the Commitment Expiration Date, to make a loan or loans (each, a “Loan” and, collectively, the “Loans”) to the Account Parties (on a joint and several basis) which Loans (i) may be made and maintained only in Dollars; (ii) may be repaid and reborrowed in accordance with the provisions hereof; (iii) except as hereinafter provided, may, at the option of any Account Party, be incurred and maintained as, and/or converted into, ABR Loans or Eurodollar Loans, provided that all Loans made as part of the same Borrowing shall, unless otherwise specified herein, consist of Loans of the same Type; (iv) shall not be made (and shall not be required to be made) by any Lender if the making of same would cause the aggregate Credit Exposures of all Lenders taken together (after giving effect to the use of the proceeds thereof on the date of the incurrence thereof to repay any amounts theretofore outstanding pursuant to this Agreement) to exceed the Total Commitment as then in effect, (v) shall not be made (and shall not be required to be made) by any Lender if the making of same would cause the aggregate Loan Exposures of all Lenders taken together (after giving effect to the use of the proceeds thereof on the date of the incurrence thereof to repay any amounts theretofore outstanding pursuant to this Agreement) to exceed the Loan Sublimit and (vi) shall not be made (and shall not be required to be made) by any Lender if the making of the same would cause the Credit Exposure of such Lender (after giving effect to the use of proceeds thereof on the date of the incurrence thereof to repay any amounts theretofore outstanding pursuant to this Agreement) to exceed such Lender’s Commitment as then in effect.

47








SECTION 2.17.    Loans and Borrowings.
(a)    Each Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Loans made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Commitments. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan required to be made by it shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligations hereunder nor shall any other party be liable for the failure by such Lender to perform its obligations hereunder.
(b)    Subject to Section 2.24, each Borrowing shall be comprised entirely of ABR Loans or Eurodollar Loans as the applicable Account Party may request in accordance herewith.
(c)    At the commencement of each Interest Period for any Eurodollar Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate principal amount of not less than $5,000,000. At the time that each ABR Borrowing is made, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and not less than $5,000,000; provided that a Borrowing may be in an aggregate amount that is equal to the entire unused balance of the Loan Sublimit. Borrowings of more than one Type may be outstanding at the same time; provided that there shall not at any time be more than a total of ten Eurodollar Borrowings outstanding.
(d)    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Account Parties shall not be entitled to request, or to elect to convert or continue, any Borrowing if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto would end after the Commitment Expiration Date.
SECTION 2.18.    Requests for Borrowings. To request a Borrowing, the applicable Account Party shall notify the Administrative Agent of such request by telephone (a) in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three Business Days prior to the date of the proposed Borrowing and (b) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, two Business Days prior to the proposed Borrowing. Each such telephonic Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by delivery or facsimile or electronic mail to the Administrative Agent of a Borrowing Request in the form of Exhibit B or such other form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent appropriately completed and signed by the applicable Account Party. Each such telephonic and written Borrowing Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.17:
(i)    the principal amount of the requested Borrowing;
(ii)    the date of such Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)    whether such Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurodollar Borrowing;
(iv)    in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”; and
(v)    the location and number of the Account Party’s account to which funds are to be disbursed.
If no election as to the Type of Borrowing of Loans is specified, then such Borrowing of Loans shall be an ABR Borrowing. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Eurodollar Borrowing, then the applicable Account Party shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s

48








Applicable Percentage (or other share as provided in this Agreement) of the Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.
SECTION 2.19.    Funding of Borrowings.
(a)    Each Lender shall make each Loan on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by 11:00 a.m., New York City time, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the applicable Account Party by wire transfer of immediately available funds not later than 2:00 p.m., New York City time, to the account of such Account Party designated by it in the applicable Borrowing Request.
(b)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, one Business Day prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the applicable Account Party a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the applicable Account Party severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Account Party to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation or (ii) in the case of an Account Party, the interest rate applicable to ABR Loans. A certificate of the Administrative Agent submitted to any Lender with respect to any amounts owing under this Section 2.19(b) shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. If an Account Party and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or any overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to such Account Party the amount of such interest paid by such Account Party for such period. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing and the applicable Account Party’s obligations to repay the Administrative Agent in accordance with the previous sentence shall cease to the extent such Lender has paid such amounts. The failure of any Lender to make the Loan to be made by it as part of any Borrowing shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Loan on the date of such Borrowing, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make the Loan to be made by such other Lender on the date of any Borrowing.
(c)    In the event that an Account Party has made a Non-Pro Rata Issuance Election and thereafter any Account Party requests a Loan, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, such Loan shall, subject to the other terms and provisions hereof, be advanced, first, by those Non-NAIC Lenders that do not participate in the issuance, renewal, extension or amendment of one or more Several Letters of Credit as the result of such Non-Pro Rata Issuance Election until, after giving effect thereto, the Credit Exposure owing to the Lenders are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective Commitments, and, second, by the Lenders (including such Non-NAIC Lender) pro rata in accordance with their Applicable Percentages, provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, the aggregate outstanding amount of the Credit Exposure of any Lender shall not exceed the Commitment of such Lender notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 2.19(c).

49








SECTION 2.20.    Interest Elections.
(a)    Each Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request. Thereafter, the applicable Account Party may elect to convert such Borrowing to a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section 2.20. Subject to the other provisions of this Section 2.20, an Account Party may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.
(b)    To make an election pursuant to this Section (an “Interest Election Request”), the applicable Account Party shall notify the Administrative Agent of such election by telephone by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.18 such Account Party were requesting a Borrowing of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election. Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by delivery or facsimile or electronic mail to the Administrative Agent of an Interest Election Request in the form of Exhibit E, or such other form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, and signed by the Company.
(c)    Each Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.17:
(i)    the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
(ii)    the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)    whether the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurodollar Borrowing; and
(iv)    if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurodollar Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term Interest Period.
If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurodollar Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the applicable Account Party shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.
(d)    Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
(e)    If the applicable Account Party fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurodollar Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period such Borrowing shall be converted to a Eurodollar Borrowing with an Interest Period of one week. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if an Event of Default is in existence, then, so long as an Event of

50








Default is in existence (i) no outstanding Borrowing may be converted to or continued as a Eurodollar Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, each Eurodollar Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto.
SECTION 2.21.    Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.
(a)    The Account Parties hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of all Loans on the Commitment Expiration Date.
(b)    Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of the Account Parties to such Lender resulting from each Loan made by such Lender, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder.
(c)    The Administrative Agent shall maintain accounts in which it shall record (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the Type thereof and the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Company to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof. The Administrative Agent shall maintain the Register in accordance with Section 10.04.
(d)    The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraph (b) or (c) of this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Account Parties to repay the Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by the Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.
(e)    Any Lender may request by written notice to the Account Parties and the Administrative Agent that Loans made by it be evidenced by a promissory note (which may be executed by facsimile). In such event, the Account Parties shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to the order of such Lender (or, if requested by such Lender, to such Lender and its registered assigns) and in the form of Exhibit D or such other form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent. Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 10.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the order of the payee named therein (or, if such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its registered assigns).

51








SECTION 2.22.    Voluntary Prepayment of Loans.
(a)    The Account Parties shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, except as provided in Section 2.25, subject to prior notice in accordance with paragraph (b) of this Section.
(b)    The Account Parties shall notify the Administrative Agent by telephone (confirmed by facsimile or electronic mail) of any prepayment hereunder (i) in the case of prepayment of a Eurodollar Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three Business Days before the date of prepayment or (ii) in the case of prepayment of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, one Business Day before the date of prepayment. Each such notice shall be irrevocable (unless given in connection with a Conditional Termination Notice, as set forth in Section 2.09, in which case, subject to Section 2.25, such notice of prepayment may be revoked if such Conditional Termination Notice is revoked in accordance with Section 2.09) and shall specify the prepayment date, the Borrowing or Borrowings which are to be prepaid and the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid. Promptly following receipt of any such notice relating to a Borrowing, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Borrowing of the same Type as provided in Section 2.17. Each prepayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in the prepaid Borrowing. Prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.23.
SECTION 2.23.    Interest.
(a)    The ABR Loans shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate with respect to ABR Loans. The Eurodollar Loans shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Loan plus the Applicable Rate with respect to Eurodollar Loans.
(b)    [Intentionally Omitted.]
(c)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan or any fee or other amount payable by the Account Parties hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of overdue principal of any Loan, 2% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 2.23 or (ii) in the case of any other amount, 2% plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section 2.23.
(d)    Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan and on the Commitment Expiration Date; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Loan prior to the Commitment Expiration Date), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of any Eurodollar Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.
(e)    All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that interest computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the

52








last day). The applicable Alternate Base Rate or Adjusted LIBO Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
SECTION 2.24.    Alternate Rate of Interest; Illegality.
(a)    If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Borrowing:
(i)    the Administrative Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate (including, without limitation, because the LIBOR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis) for such Interest Period; or
(ii)    the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders (based on the reasonable determination of such Required Lenders) that the Adjusted LIBO Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Account Parties and the Lenders by telephone (followed by written or facsimile notice) or facsimile or in writing as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Account Parties and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurodollar Borrowing shall be ineffective, (ii) the utilization of any Adjusted LIBO Rate component in defining the Alternate Base Rate shall be suspended and (iii) if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurodollar Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type of Borrowings, then the other Type of Borrowings shall be permitted.

(b)    If at any time the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances set forth in clause (a)(i) above have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in clause (a)(i) above have not arisen but the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the LIBOR Screen Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then the Administrative Agent and the Account Parties shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the Screen Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time, and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable (but for the avoidance of doubt, such related changes shall not include a reduction of the Applicable Rate). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Business Days of the date notice of such alternate rate of interest is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this clause (b) (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (ii) of the first sentence of this Section 2.24(b), only to the extent the LIBOR Screen Rate for the applicable currency and/or such Interest Period is not available or published at such time on a current basis), (x) any notice of conversion/continuation that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurodollar Borrowing shall be ineffective, and (y) if any Borrowing requests a Eurodollar Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be made as an Alternate Base Rate Borrowing; provided, that, if such alternate rate of interest shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.

53








(c)    If any Lender reasonably determines that any Change in Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its Applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate, or to determine or change interest rates based upon the Adjusted LIBO Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, Dollars in the London interbank market, then on written notice thereof by such Lender to the Account Parties and the Administrative Agent, (1) any obligation of such Lender to make or continue Eurodollar Loans or to convert ABR Loans to Eurodollar Loans shall be suspended, and (2) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining ABR the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Account Parties that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (a) the applicable Account Party may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Loans and shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), convert all Eurodollar Loans of such Lender to ABR Loans (the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Loans and (b) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate with respect to any ABR Loans, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Alternate Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Adjusted LIBO Rate. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Account Parties shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.
SECTION 2.25.    Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of a mandatory prepayment under Section 2.10 or the occurrence of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurodollar Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto, or (d) the assignment of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Company pursuant to Section 2.14, then, in any such event, the Account Parties shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event. In the case of a Eurodollar Loan, such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate that would have been applicable to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest which would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which such Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for dollar deposits of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the Eurodollar market. A certificate of any Lender setting forth in reasonable detail any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Account Parties and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Account Parties shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.

54








SECTION 2.26.     Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law
(i)    Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Required Lenders and Section 10.2
(ii)    Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VII or otherwise) or received by the Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 10.08 shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Fronting Lender hereunder; third, to cash collateralize the Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure in accordance with Section 2.26(a)(v); fourth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Account Parties, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to (A) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations under this Agreement and (B) cash collateralize the Defaulting Lender’s future Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement, in accordance with Section 2.26(a)(v); fifth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders or the Fronting Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender or the Fronting Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; sixth, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Company or any Account Party as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Company or any Account Party against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, to the Company and the Account Parties as reimbursement for any expenses and cost incurred as a result of any requirement to provide cash collateral as set forth in Section 2.26(a)(v); and eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (1) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of funded participations in Fronted Letters of Credit in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (2) such loans and the related Fronted Letters of Credit were made or issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and funded participations in Fronted Letters of Credit owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or funded participations in Letters of Credit owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Fronted Letters of Credit are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments without giving effect to Section 2.26(a)(iv). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this Section 2.26(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)    Certain Fees.

(A)No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any Commitment Fee for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Account Parties shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender).

(B)A Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive Letter of Credit Fees pursuant to Section 2.11 for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to the extent allocable to its Applicable Percentage of the Stated Amount of Letters of Credit for which such Defaulting Lender has provided cash collateral required pursuant to Section 2.26(a)(v).

(C)With respect to any Letter of Credit Fee not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (B) above, the Account Parties shall pay to each Non-Defaulting Lender that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure that has been reallocated to such Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iv) below.

(D)Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure is not cash collateralized or reallocated pursuant to Section 2.26(a)(iv), then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Fronting Lender or any Lender hereunder, all Letter of Credit Fees that otherwise would have been payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure shall be payable to the Fronting Lender until such Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure is cash collateralized.
(iv)    Reallocation of Participations. All or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure shall be automatically reallocated (effective on the day such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender) among the Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment) but only to the extent that such reallocation does not cause the Credit Exposure of any Non-Defaulting Lender to exceed such Non-Defaulting Lender’s Commitment. Subject to Section 10.16, no reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a Non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.
(v)    Cash Collateral. If the reallocation described in clause (iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, and the Defaulting Lender has failed to provide cash collateral for its Applicable Percentage of the Stated Amount of Letters of Credit, the Account Parties shall within five Business Days following notice by the Administrative Agent, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under law, cash collateralize the Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to paragraph (iv) above) in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.10. Notwithstanding Section 2.26(a)(iii)(B) above, if the Account Parties cash collateralize any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure pursuant to this Section 2.26(a)(v), the Account Parties shall not be required to pay any Letter of Credit Fees to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such portion of the Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure during the period such Defaulting Lender’s Fronted Letter of Credit Exposure is cash collateralized and any such cash collateral shall be applied to the applicable Letter of Credit if drawn.

56








(b)    Fronting Lender. So long as any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Fronting Lender shall not be required to issue any Fronted Letter of Credit unless the Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Lenders and/or cash collateral provided by the Account Parties or the Defaulting Lender are at least equal to the Stated Amount of such Fronted Letter of Credit, and participating interests in any such newly issued Fronted Letter of Credit shall be allocated among non-Defaulting Lenders (and Defaulting Lenders shall not participate therein).
(c)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Account Parties, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Agent and the Fronting Lender agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), such Lender will, to the extent applicable, take such actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the outstanding Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Fronted Letters of Credit to be held pro rata by the Lenders in accordance with the Commitments without giving effect to Section 2.26(a)(iv) in order for such Lenders to hold such Loans and participations in Fronted Letters of Credit in accordance with its Applicable Percentage, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Account Parties while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.

ARTICLE VIII    

The Agents
SECTION 8.01.    Appointment. Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints each Agent as its agent and authorizes such Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to such Agent by the terms hereof, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The provisions of this Article VIII are solely for the benefit of the Agents, and neither the Company nor any other Account Party shall have rights as a third party beneficiary of any of such provisions. It is understood and agreed that the use of the term “agent” as used herein or in any other Credit Documents (or any similar term) with reference to any Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead, such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties.
SECTION 8.02.    Agents in their Individual Capacities. Each bank serving as an Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not an Agent, and such bank and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or other Affiliate thereof as if it were not an Agent hereunder.
SECTION 8.03.    Exculpatory Provisions. Each Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) no Agent shall be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) no Agent shall have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby that such Agent is required to exercise in writing as directed by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02), and (c) except as expressly set forth herein, no Agent shall have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as such Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. No Agent shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. No Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to such Agent by the Company or the applicable Account Party or a Lender, and no Agent makes any representation or warranty to any Lender or shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with this Agreement, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered

79








hereunder or in connection herewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth herein, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement or any other agreement, instrument or document, or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere herein, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to such Agent.
SECTION 8.04.    Reliance. Each Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or sent by the proper Person. Each Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. Each Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Company), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.
SECTION 8.05.    Delegation of Duties. Each Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through any one or more sub‑agents appointed by such Agent. Each Agent and any such sub‑agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the applicable Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Agent. No Agent shall be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub agents, except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and non-appealable judgment that such Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub agents.
SECTION 8.06.    Resignation. Subject to the appointment and acceptance of an applicable successor Agent as provided in this paragraph, each Agent may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders and the Company. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent, which shall be a bank with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of any such bank, with the consent of the Company (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), provided that no such consent shall be required at any time when a Default or Event of Default exists. If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent which shall be a bank with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of any such bank. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as an Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. The fees payable by the Account Parties to a successor Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Company and such successor. After an Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article VIII and Section 10.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent, its sub‑agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as an Agent. If, within 45 days after written notice is given of the retiring Agent’s resignation under this Section 8.06, no successor Agent shall have been appointed and shall have accepted such appointment, then on such 45th day (i) the retiring Agent’s resignation shall become effective, (ii) the retiring Agent shall thereupon be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Agreement and (iii) the Required Lenders shall thereafter perform all duties of the retiring Agent under this Agreement until such time as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Agent as provided above. After any retiring Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article VIII shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent and its

80








representatives and agents in respect of any actions taken or not taken by any of them while it was serving as the Agent.
SECTION 8.07.    Non-Reliance. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
SECTION 8.08.    Syndication Agent, Documentation Agent, Financial Advisor and Arranger, the Left Lead Arranger and Left Bookrunner and Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners.

Without limitation of the foregoing, the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Financial Advisor and Arranger, the Left Lead Arranger and Left Bookrunner and the Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners shall not, solely by reason of this Agreement, have any fiduciary relationship with any Lender or any other Person.
SECTION 8.09.    The Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim.
(a)    In case of the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceeding relative to the Company or any Account Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or any Credit Exposure shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on the Account Parties) shall be entitled and empowered by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:
(i)    to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans or Credit Exposure and all other obligations under this Agreement that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders, the LC Issuers and the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders, the LC Issuers and the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders, the LC Issuers and the Administrative Agent under Section 10.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and
(ii)    to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same.

81

ARTICLE IX    

Company Guaranty
SECTION 9.01.    The Company Guaranty. In order to induce the Lenders to enter into this Agreement and to extend credit hereunder and in recognition of the direct benefits to be received by the Company from the making of the Loans and the issuance of the Letters of Credit, the Company hereby agrees with the Lenders as follows: the Company hereby unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees, as primary obligor and not merely as surety, the full and prompt payment when due, whether upon maturity, acceleration or otherwise, of any and all of the Guaranteed Obligations of each Account Party to the Guaranteed Creditors. If any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations of any Account Party to the Guaranteed Creditors becomes due and payable hereunder, the Company unconditionally promises to pay (subject to the provisions of Section 2.12) such Guaranteed Obligations to the Guaranteed Creditors, or order, on demand, together with any and all expenses which may be incurred by the Guaranteed Creditors in collecting any of the Guaranteed Obligations. This Company Guaranty is a continuing guaranty of payment and not of collection, and shall apply to all Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising.

SECTION 9.02.    Bankruptcy. Additionally, the Company unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees the payment of any and all of the Guaranteed Obligations of each Account Party hereunder to the Guaranteed Creditors whether or not due or payable by each Account Party upon the occurrence of any of the events specified in Section 7.05 with respect to such Account Party, and unconditionally promises to pay such indebtedness to the Guaranteed Creditors, or order, on demand, in lawful money of the United States.
SECTION 9.03.    Nature of Liability. The liability of the Company hereunder is exclusive and independent of any other guaranty of the Guaranteed Obligations of each Account Party whether executed by the Company, any other guarantor or by any other party, and the liability of the Company hereunder is not affected or impaired by (a) any direction as to application of payment by each Account Party or by any other party (other than a direction by the Guaranteed Creditor receiving such payment), or (b) any other continuing or other guaranty, undertaking or maximum liability of a guarantor or of any other party as to the Guaranteed Obligations of each Account Party, or (c) any payment on or in reduction of any such other guaranty or undertaking, or (d) any dissolution, termination or increase, decrease or change in personnel by each Account Party, or (e) any payment made to the Guaranteed Creditors on the Guaranteed Obligations which any such Guaranteed Creditor repays to each Account Party pursuant to court order in any bankruptcy,

SECTION 9.04.    Independent Obligation. The obligations of the Company under this Article IX are independent of the obligations of any other guarantor, any other party or each Account Party, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against the Company whether or not action is brought against any other guarantor, any other party or each Account Party and whether or not any other guarantor, any other party or each Account Party be joined in any such action or actions. The Company waives, to the full extent permitted by law, the benefit of any statute of limitations affecting its liability under this Article IX or the enforcement thereof. Any payment by an Account Party or other circumstance which operates to toll any statute of limitations as to an Account Party shall operate to toll the statute of limitations as to the Company.
SECTION 9.05.    Authorization. The obligations of the Company under this Article IX shall be unconditional and absolute and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, shall not be released, discharged or otherwise affected by any action taken by any Guaranteed Creditor to:
(a)    change the manner, place or terms of payment of, and/or change or extend the time of payment of, renew, increase, accelerate or alter, any of the Guaranteed Obligations (including any increase or decrease in the rate of interest thereon), any security therefor, or any liability incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof, and the guaranty herein made shall apply to the Guaranteed Obligations as so changed, extended, renewed or altered;
(b)    take and hold security for the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations and sell, exchange, release, impair, surrender, realize upon or otherwise deal with in any manner and in any order any property by whomsoever at any time pledged or mortgaged to secure, or howsoever securing, the Guaranteed Obligations or any liabilities (including any of those hereunder) incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof or hereof, and/or any offset thereagainst, except to the extent the Guaranteed Obligations have been paid;
(c)    exercise or refrain from exercising any rights against any Account Party or others or otherwise act or refrain from acting;
(d)    release or substitute any one or more endorsers, guarantors, any Account Party or other obligor;

83








(h)    take any other action which would, under otherwise applicable principles of common law, give rise to a legal or equitable discharge of the Company from its liabilities under this Company Guaranty.
SECTION 9.06.    Reliance. It is not necessary for the Guaranteed Creditors to inquire into the capacity or powers of any Account Party or the officers, directors, partners or agents acting or purporting to act on their behalf, and any Guaranteed Obligations made or created in reliance upon the professed exercise of such powers shall be guaranteed hereunder.
SECTION 9.07.    Subordination. Any indebtedness of any Account Party now or hereafter owing to the Company is hereby subordinated to the Guaranteed Obligations of each Account Party owing to the Guaranteed Creditors; and if the Administrative Agent so requests at a time when an Event of Default exists, no Account Party shall make, or be permitted to make, any payment to the Company in respect of such indebtedness owed to the Company, but without affecting or impairing in any manner the liability of the Company under the other provisions of this Company Guaranty. Prior to the transfer by the Company of any note or negotiable instrument evidencing any of the indebtedness of any Account Party to the Company, the Company shall mark such note or negotiable instrument with a legend that the same is subject to this subordination. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company hereby agrees with the Guaranteed Creditors that it will not exercise any right of subrogation which it may at any time otherwise have as a result of this Company Guaranty (whether contractual, under Section 509 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise) until all Guaranteed Obligations have been irrevocably paid in full in cash.
SECTION 9.08.    Waiver. (a) The Company waives any right (except as shall be required by applicable statute and cannot be waived) to require any Guaranteed Creditor to (i) proceed against any Account Party, any other guarantor or any other party, (ii) proceed against or exhaust any security held from any Account Party, any other guarantor or any other party or (iii) pursue any other remedy in any Guaranteed Creditor’s power whatsoever. The Company waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of any Account Party, any other guarantor or any other party, other than payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations, based on or arising out of the disability of any Account Party, any other guarantor or any other party, or the unenforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of any Account Party other than payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations. The Guaranteed Creditors may exercise any right or remedy the Guaranteed Creditors may have against any Account Party or any other party, or any security, without affecting or impairing in any way the liability of the Company hereunder except to the extent the Guaranteed Obligations have been paid. The Company waives any defense arising out of any such election by the Guaranteed Creditors, even though such election operates to impair or extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of the Company against any Account Party or any other party or any security.
(a)    The Company waives all presentments, demands for performance, protests and notices, including notices of non‑performance, notices of protest, notices of dishonor, notices of acceptance of this Company Guaranty, and notices of the existence, creation or incurring of new or additional Guaranteed Obligations. The Company assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of each Account Party’s financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of non‑payment of the Guaranteed Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks which the Company assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that the Guaranteed Creditors shall have no duty to advise the Company of information known to them regarding such circumstances or risks.
(b)    The Company warrants and agrees that each of the waivers set forth above in this Section 9.08 is made with full knowledge of its significance and consequences, and such waivers shall be effective to the maximum extent permitted by law.

84








SECTION 9.09.    Maximum Liability. The provisions of this Company Guaranty are severable, and in any action or proceeding involving any state corporate law, or any state, federal or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other law affecting the rights of creditors generally, if the obligations of the Company under this Company Guaranty would otherwise be held or determined to be avoidable, invalid or unenforceable on account of the amount of the liability under this Company Guaranty or otherwise, then, notwithstanding any other provision of this Company Guaranty to the contrary, the amount and scope of such liability shall, without any further action by the Company or the Guaranteed Creditors, be automatically limited and reduced to the highest amount that is valid and enforceable as determined in such action or proceeding (such highest amount determined hereunder being the “Maximum Liability”.  This Section 9.09 with respect to the Maximum Liability is intended solely to preserve the rights of the Guaranteed Creditors to the maximum extent not subject to avoidance under applicable law, and neither the Company nor any Account Party nor any other Person shall have any right or claim under this Section 9.09 with respect to the Maximum Liability, except to the extent necessary so that the obligations of the Company hereunder shall not be rendered voidable under applicable law.  The Company agrees that the Guaranteed Obligations may at any time and from time to time exceed the Maximum Liability without impairing this Company Guaranty or affecting the rights and remedies of the Guaranteed Creditors hereunder, provided that, nothing in this sentence shall be construed to increase the Company’s obligations hereunder beyond the Maximum Liability.

provided that the foregoing shall not apply to notices pursuant to (x) Article II unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Lender or (y) Section 5.01(d)(x). The Administrative Agent or the Company may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications.
Unless the Administrative Agent otherwise prescribes, (i) notices and other communications sent to an e-mail address shall be deemed received upon the sender’s receipt of an acknowledgement from the intended recipient (such as by the “return receipt requested” function, as available, return e-mail or other written acknowledgement), and (ii) notices or communications posted to an Internet or intranet website shall be deemed received upon the deemed receipt by the intended recipient, at its e-mail address as described in the foregoing clause (i), of notification that such notice or communication is available and identifying the website address therefor; provided that, for both clauses (i) and (ii) above, if such notice, email or other communication is not sent during the normal business hours of the recipient, such notice or communication shall be deemed to have been sent at the opening of business on the next business day for the recipient.
(b)    Any party hereto may change its address or facsimile number for notices and other communications hereunder by notice to the other parties hereto.
(c)    Electronic Systems.
(i) The Company agrees that the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, make Communications (as defined below) available to the Lenders by posting the Communications on Debt Domain, Intralinks, Syndtrak, ClearPar or a substantially similar Electronic System.
(ii) Any Electronic System used by the Administrative Agent is provided “as is” and “as available.” The Agent Parties (as defined below) do not warrant the adequacy of such Electronic Systems and expressly disclaim liability for errors or omissions in the Communications. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third-party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects, is made by any Agent Party in connection with the Communications or any Electronic System. In no event shall the Administrative Agent or any of its Related Parties (collectively, the “Agent Parties”) have any liability to any Account Party, any Lender or any other Person or entity for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) arising out of any Account Party’s or the Administrative Agent’s transmission of Communications through an Electronic System. “Communications” means, collectively, any notice, demand, communication, information, document or other material provided by or on behalf of any Account Party pursuant to any Credit Document or the transactions contemplated therein which is distributed by the Administrative Agent or any Lender by means of electronic communications pursuant to this Section, including through an Electronic System.
SECTION 10.02.    Waivers; Amendments. (a) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by any Account Party therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section 10.02, and

86








then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, neither the issuance of any Letter of Credit nor the making of any Loan shall be construed as a waiver of any Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of such Default at the time. In the case of any waiver, each Account Party, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder and any Default or Event of Default so waived shall be deemed to be cured and not continuing. No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon.
(a)    Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by each Account Party and the Required Lenders or by each Account Party and the Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such agreement shall (i) increase the Commitment or the Loan Exposure of any Lender without the written consent of such Lender, (ii) reduce the amount of any amount due pursuant to any Letter of Credit or Unpaid Drawing or any Loan or reduce any interest or fees payable hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (iii) postpone the scheduled date for reimbursement of any Unpaid Drawing or payment of any Loan, or any interest thereon, or any fees payable hereunder, or reduce the amount of, waive or excuse any such payment, or postpone the scheduled date of expiration of the Commitments or any Letter of Credit, without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (iv) change Section 2.13(b) or (c) in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby or change any of the provisions of this Section 10.02 or the definition of “Required Lenders” or any other provision hereof specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to waive, amend or modify any rights hereunder or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender, (v) release the Company from the Company Guaranty (or change the Company Guaranty in a manner that is materially adverse to the Lenders), without the written consent of each Lender, (vi) increase the Loan Sublimit without the written consent of each Lender or (vii) change any provision of Article II specifically relating to Letters of Credit without the written consent of each LC Issuer affected thereby; and provided, further, that no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of any Agent or any LC Issuer hereunder without the prior written consent of such Agent or such LC Issuer, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement, any provision of this Agreement referenced in the first proviso to the immediately preceding sentence may be amended or waived by an agreement in writing entered into by the Company, the Super-Majority Lenders and the Administrative Agent (and, if its rights or obligations are affected thereby, each LC Issuer and the Issuing Agent) if (x) by the terms of such agreement the Commitment of each Lender not consenting to the amendment or waiver provided for therein shall terminate, and any Several Letters of Credit then outstanding shall either be terminated, amended or returned and reissued, in each case to give effect to such termination (it being understood that the Company may cause the Commitment of any such non-consenting Lender to be assigned to one or more new Lenders in accordance with Section 10.04; provided that no action shall be required to be taken by such non-consenting Lender (including the execution of any Assignment and Assumption Agreement)) and (y) at the time such amendment or waiver becomes effective, each Lender not consenting thereto receives payment in full of all amounts owing to it or accrued for its account under this Agreement.
SECTION 10.03.    Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. (a) Each Account Party jointly and severally agrees to pay (i) all reasonable and documented out‑of‑pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of external counsel of the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, in connection with the syndication of the credit facility provided for herein, the preparation and administration of this Agreement or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated) or protection of its rights hereunder or thereunder, (ii) all out of pocket

87








expenses of the Issuing Agent and each Fronting Lender in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit hereunder, and (iii) all reasonable and documented out‑of‑pocket expenses incurred by any Agent, the Left Lead Arranger and Left Bookrunner, any Joint Lead Arranger and Joint Bookrunner, any LC Issuer or any Lender, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of external counsel, in connection with the enforcement of its rights or remedies in connection with this Agreement, including its rights under this Section 10.03, or in connection with the Loans made and Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans and Letters of Credit.
(a)    Each Account Party jointly and severally agrees to indemnify the Agents, the Left Lead Arranger and Left Bookrunner, the Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners, the Financial Advisor and Arranger and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of any external counsel for such Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations hereunder or any other transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) any Letter of Credit, Loan or the use of the proceeds therefrom, (iii) any actual or alleged presence or release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Environmental Liability related in any way to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether such Indemnitee is a party thereto or whether such claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding is brought by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or a third party; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses (x) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and non‑appealable judgment to have resulted from the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee or any Related Indemnified Person of such Indemnitee or (y) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and non‑appealable judgment to have resulted from a material breach of the obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit Document of such Indemnitee or any of its Related Indemnified Persons. This Section 10.03(b) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims, damages, etc. arising from any non-Tax claim.
(b)    To the extent that any Account Party fails to pay any amount required to be paid by it to an Agent, under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section 10.03, each Lender severally agrees to pay to such Agent such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against such Agent, in its capacity as such.
(c)    To the extent permitted by applicable law, none of the Account Parties, the Administrative Agent or any Lender, shall assert, and each such Person hereby waives, any claim against any other party, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, any Letter of Credit, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof; provided that nothing contained in this sentence shall limit the Account Parties’ indemnification obligations pursuant to Section 10.03(b) to the extent set forth therein to the extent such special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages are included in any third party claim in connection with which such Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification hereunder.

88








(d)    All amounts due under this Section 10.03 shall be payable promptly after written demand therefor.
SECTION 10.04.    Successors and Assigns. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby except that (i) neither the Company nor Account Party may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by such Account Party without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section 10.04. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants (to the extent provided in paragraph (c) of this Section 10.04) and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of each of the Agents and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

(A) the Company (provided that the Company shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received notice thereof), provided, further, that no consent of the Company shall be required for an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender, an Approved Fund or, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any other assignee; and
(B) the Administrative Agent and each LC Issuer.
(i)    Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:
(A) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitment, the amount of the Commitment of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than $5,000,000 unless each of the Company and the Administrative Agent otherwise consent, provided that no such consent of the Company shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing;
(B) each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement;
(C) the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent (x) an Assignment and Assumption or (y) to the extent applicable, an agreement incorporating an Assignment and Assumption by reference pursuant to a Platform as to which the Administrative Agent and the parties to the Assignment and Assumption are participants, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500, such fee to be paid by either the assigning Lender or the assignee Lender or shared between such Lenders;

89








(D) the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire;
(E) the assignee shall be an NAIC Approved Bank that is not a parent, subsidiary or Affiliate of any Account Party or any beneficiary under any Letter of Credit; and
(F) if any Several Letters of Credit are then outstanding, no such assignment shall be effective until all such outstanding Several Letters of Credit are either amended or returned and reissued, in each case to give effect to such assignment.
For the purposes of this Section 10.04(b), the terms “Approved Fund” and “Ineligible Institution” have the following meanings:
Approved Fund” means any Person (other than a natural person) that is engaged in making, purchasing, holding or investing in bank loans and similar extensions of credit in the ordinary course of its business and that is administered or managed by (a) a Lender, (b) an Affiliate of a Lender or (c) an entity or an Affiliate of an entity that administers or manages a Lender.
Ineligible Institution” means (a) a natural person, (b) a Defaulting Lender or its Lender Parent, (c) the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any of its Affiliates, (d) a company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural person or relative(s) thereof or (e) a bank or other financial institution that is not a NAIC Approved Bank.
(ii)    Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (b)(iv) of this Section 10.04, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement (provided that any liability of any Account Party to such assignee under Section 2.06, 2.12 or 2.25 shall be limited to the amount, if any, that would have been payable thereunder by such Account Party in the absence of such assignment, except to the extent any such amounts are attributable to a Change in Law), and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.06, 2.12, 2.25 and 10.03). Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 10.04 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (c) of this Section 10.04.
(iii)    The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Account Parties, shall maintain at one of its offices in the United States a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitment of, and principal amount of the Loans and Reimbursement Obligations owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Account Parties, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Account Parties, and any Lender, at any

90








reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. This Section 10.04(b) shall be construed so that all Loans are at all times maintained in “registered form” within the meaning of Sections 163(f), 871(h)(2) and 881(G)(2) of the Code and any related Treasury regulations.
(iv)    Upon its receipt of (x) a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee or (y) to the extent applicable, an agreement incorporating an Assignment and Assumption by reference pursuant to a Platform as to which the Administrative Agent and the parties to the Assignment and Assumption are participants, the assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section 10.04 and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register. No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph (b).
(b)    (i) Any Lender may, without the consent of any Account Party or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”), other than an Ineligible Institution, in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and Unpaid Drawings and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (C) the Account Parties, the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 10.02(b) that affects such Participant. Each Account Party agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.06 and 2.12 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 2.12(e) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.12(e) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section 10.04; provided that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Sections 2.14 as if it were an assignee under paragraph (b) of this Section 10.04; and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.06, 2.12 and/or 2.25, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.08 as though it were a Lender, provided such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.13(c) as though it were a Lender.
(i)    Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Account Parties, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Letters of Credit, Loans or other obligations under this Agreement (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any Commitments, Unpaid Drawings, Loans or its other obligations under this Agreement) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment,

91








Unpaid Drawing, Loan or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
(c)    Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or a central bank, and this Section 10.04 shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
SECTION 10.05.    Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Company and any Account Party herein and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the issuance of any Letters of Credit and the making of any Loan regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as any Letter of Credit or the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan is outstanding, any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid and so long as the Total Commitment (and the Commitment of each Lender) has not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 2.06, 2.12, 2.25 and 10.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Total Commitment (and the Commitment of each Lender) or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.
SECTION 10.06.    Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness; Electronic Execution. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. This Agreement and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. Except as provided in Section 4.01, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof which, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by telecopy, e-mailed .pdf or any other electronic means that reproduces an image of the actual executed signature page shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement. The words “execution,” “signed,” “signature,” “delivery,” and words of like import in or relating to any document to be signed in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include Electronic Signatures, deliveries or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature, physical delivery thereof or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any applicable law, including the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, the New York State Electronic Signatures and Records Act, or any other similar state laws based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions

92








Act; provided that nothing herein shall require the Administrative Agent to accept electronic signatures in any form or in any format without its prior written consent.
SECTION 10.07.    Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.
SECTION 10.08.    Right of Setoff. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of any Account Party against any of and all the obligations of such Account Party now or hereafter existing under this Agreement held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement and although such obligations may be unmatured. The rights of each Lender under this Section 10.08 are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender may have. Each Lender agrees to notify an Account Party promptly after any such setoff and application; provided that failure to so notify an Account Party shall not affect any Lender’s rights under this Agreement.

(b)    Each party hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section 10.09. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
(c)    Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in connection with disputes arising out of this Agreement in the manner provided for notices in Section 10.01.

(i)    such Lender is not using “plan assets” (within the meaning of 29 CFR § 2510.3-101, as modified by Section 3(42) of ERISA) of one or more Benefit Plans in connection with the Loans, the Letters of Credit or the Commitments,

96

97








SECTION 10.18.    Judgment Currency. If, for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder or any other Credit Document in one currency into another currency, the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent could purchase the first currency with such other currency on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of each Account Party in respect of any such sum due from it to the Administrative Agent or the Lenders hereunder or under the other Credit Documents shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the “Judgment Currency”) other than that in which such sum is denominated in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement (the “Agreement Currency”), be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Administrative Agent may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the Agreement Currency with the Judgment Currency. If the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent from any Account Party in the Agreement Currency, each Account Party jointly and severally agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Administrative Agent or the Person to whom such obligation was owing against such loss. If the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased is greater than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent in such currency, the Administrative Agent agrees to return the amount of any excess to the applicable Account Party (or to any other Person who may be entitled thereto under applicable Law).
SECTION 10.19.    Sovereign Immunity. Each Loan Party that is incorporated outside the United States, in respect of itself, its Subsidiaries, its process agents, and its properties and revenues, hereby irrevocably agrees that, to the extent that such Loan Party or its respective Subsidiaries or any of its or its respective Subsidiaries’ properties has or may hereafter acquire any right of immunity, whether characterized as sovereign immunity or otherwise, from any legal proceedings, whether in the United States or elsewhere, to enforce or collect upon the Loans or any Credit Document or any other liability or obligation of such Loan Party or any of their respective Subsidiaries related to or arising from the transactions contemplated by any of the Credit Documents, including, without limitation, immunity from suit, immunity from service of process, immunity from jurisdiction or judgment of any court or tribunal, immunity from execution of a judgment, and immunity of any of its property from attachment prior to any entry of judgment, or from attachment in aid of execution upon a judgment, such Loan Party, for itself and on behalf of its Subsidiaries, hereby expressly waives, to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, any such immunity, and agrees not to assert any such right or claim in any such proceeding, whether in the United States or elsewhere. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Loan Party further agrees that the waivers set forth in this Section 10.19 shall have the fullest extent permitted under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976 of the United States and are intended to be irrevocable for purposes of such Act.
ARTICLE XI    
Nature of Obligations
SECTION 11.01.    Joint and Several Liability of the Account Parties; Cross-Guaranty.

The Account Parties shall be jointly and severally liable for all obligations regardless of which Account Parties actually receive the proceeds of any Loan or the benefit of any Letter of Credit.

98








SECTION 11.02.    Benefit. Each Account Party agrees that the provisions of this Article XI are for the benefit of Agents and Lenders and their respective successors, transferees, endorsees and permitted assigns, and nothing herein contained shall impair as between any other Account Party and Agents or Lenders, the obligations of such other Account Party under this Agreement.
