Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

1.Reference is made to that certain Acquisition Agreement, dated as of the date hereof (as may be amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified, the “Acquisition Agreement”), by and between, Catalyst Holdings Limited, a private limited company incorporated in England and Wales (registered no. 13078098) (“BidCo”), and Cardtronics plc, a public limited company incorporated in England and Wales (registered no. 10057418 (the “Company”). Except as otherwise specified herein, each capitalized term used in this letter agreement and not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to such term in the Acquisition Agreement.

 

2.On the terms and subject to the conditions of this letter agreement and of the Acquisition Agreement, each entity listed on Exhibit A attached hereto (each, an “Equity Investor” and together, the “Equity Investors”) hereby severally, and not jointly, commits to purchase, or will cause one or more of its Affiliates to purchase, directly or indirectly, its pro rata percentage (as set forth on Exhibit A) of the equity interests of BidCo (or one or more of its Affiliates who are assigned BidCo’s rights, interests and obligations under the Acquisition Agreement), immediately prior to the time BidCo and the Company become obligated unconditionally under the Acquisition Agreement to effect the Acquisition for the purpose of enabling BidCo to pay the Consideration pursuant to Section 2.1 of the Acquisition Agreement, which amount, for the avoidance of doubt, excludes any consideration in respect of Excluded Shares (the “Acquisition Amount”) for an aggregate amount equal to the percentage of the Commitment set forth opposite such Equity Investor’s name on Exhibit A hereto (such amount with respect to each Equity Investor is such Equity Investor’s “Maximum Investor Commitment”); provided, that no Equity Investor shall, under any circumstances, be obligated to purchase equity interests or otherwise provide any funds to BidCo in an amount exceeding the amount of such Equity Investor’s Maximum Investor Commitment, and the Equity Investors, collectively, shall not, under any circumstances, be obligated to purchase equity interests or otherwise provide any funds to BidCo in an amount exceeding the Commitment. As used in this letter agreement, the term “Commitment” means an amount equal to $845,400,000.00 or such lesser amount that, together with the funds under the Debt Commitment Letters, suffices to fully fund the Acquisition Amount pursuant to, and in accordance with, the Acquisition Agreement. Consummation of the equity investment is subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of this letter agreement and to (i) the satisfaction in full or valid waiver, on or before the Effective Date, of all of the conditions precedent to the obligations of BidCo set forth in Sections 7.1 and 7.2 of the Acquisition Agreement (other than those conditions precedent that by their nature are to be satisfied on the Effective Date, but subject to the concurrent satisfaction or valid waiver of such conditions precedent on the Effective Date), (ii) the satisfaction in full or valid waiver, on or before the Effective Date, of all the conditions precedent to the funding of the Debt Financing (other than the funding of the Commitment) and the concurrent receipt by BidCo of the net cash proceeds of the Debt Financing (on the terms and subject to the conditions described in the Debt Commitment Letters) and (iii) the concurrent consummation of the Acquisition on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Acquisition Agreement. The Commitment shall be used solely as will be required, and solely to the extent necessary, to fund the Acquisition Amount, solely to the extent and when required to be paid by BidCo on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein and in the Acquisition Agreement and not for any other purpose whatsoever.

3.Each Equity Investor hereby represents and warrants that: (i) it has all the power and authority to execute, deliver and perform this letter agreement; (ii) the execution, delivery and performance of this letter agreement by each Equity Investor has been duly and validly authorized and approved by all necessary limited partnership, or corporate action, as applicable; (iii) this letter agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by it and constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of it, enforceable against each Equity Investor by Bidco and the Company in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and similar Laws affecting creditors’ rights and remedies generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at Law or in equity); and (iv) the execution, delivery and performance by it of this letter agreement do not and will not violate or conflict with any term or provision of the organizational documents of the Equity Investor, including, but not limited to, the Equity Investor’s limited partnership agreement, any Law, any order, writ, injunction or decree applicable to such Equity Investor. Notwithstanding anything in this letter agreement to the contrary, in no event will any Equity Investor (together with its assigns) be under any obligation under any circumstances to provide an aggregate amount of funds of more than its Maximum Investor Commitment to BidCo or any other Person (and in no event will the Equity Investors (together with their respective assigns), in the aggregate, be under any obligation under any circumstances to provide an aggregate amount of funds of more than the amount of the Commitment to BidCo or any other Person). The Equity Investors hereby represent and warrant to BidCo that, as of the date hereof, the Equity Investors collectively have, and on the Effective Date will have available, sufficient cash, available lines of credit, capital commitments or other sources of available funds to fulfill the Commitment in full in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein.

current or future direct or indirect equity holder, controlling person, general or limited partner, officer, director, employee, investment professional, manager, stockholder, member, agent, Affiliate, assignee, financing source or Representative of any of the foregoing or any of their respective successors or assigns (other than BidCo under the Acquisition Agreement and subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein) (any such Person, a “Related Party”) of any Equity Investor or any Related Party of any Related Party (including any liabilities or obligations arising under, or in connection with, this letter agreement, the Limited Guarantee, the Debt Commitment Letters, the Acquisition Agreement or any other document or instrument delivered in connection herewith or

in connection herewith or therewith or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby (or the termination or abandonment thereof), whether or not any such breach is caused by any Equity Investor’s breach (whether willfully, intentionally, unintentionally or otherwise) of its obligations under this letter agreement), whether, in each case, by or through piercing of the corporate, limited liability company or limited partnership veil or similar action, by or through a claim by or on behalf of any Equity Investor against any Related Party of an Equity Investor or any Related Party of such Related Party, whether by the enforcement of any judgment or assessment or by any legal or equitable proceedings, or by virtue of any statute, regulation or other applicable Law or otherwise, (ii) it is expressly agreed and acknowledged that no personal liability or obligation whatsoever shall attach to, be imposed on, or otherwise be incurred by any Related Party of any

6.The parties hereto hereby agree that their respective agreements and obligations set forth herein are solely for the benefit of each other party hereto and its respective successors and permitted assigns, in accordance with and subject to the terms of this letter agreement, and that this letter agreement is not intended to, and does not, confer upon any Person (including the Company or its Affiliates and the Debt Financing Sources and all of the respective Representatives of any of the foregoing) other than the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns any benefits, rights or remedies under or by reason of, or any rights to enforce or cause BidCo to enforce, the obligations set forth herein; provided, that the Company may rely upon this letter agreement as an express third party beneficiary solely in the event that the Company is awarded in accordance with, and subject to the terms and conditions of, Section 9.12 of the Acquisition Agreement, specific performance of BidCo’s obligation to cause the Equity Financing to be funded in accordance with the terms and conditions of this letter agreement; provided, further, that each Related Party of any Equity Investor and any Related Party of such Related Party may rely upon Section 5 of this letter agreement as a third party beneficiary.

Each of the parties hereto irrevocably agrees that any Proceeding with respect to this letter agreement and the rights and obligations arising hereunder, or for recognition and enforcement of any judgment in respect of this letter agreement and the rights and obligations arising hereunder brought by the other party hereto or its successors or assigns, shall be brought and determined exclusively in the Delaware Court of Chancery and any state appellate court therefrom within the State of Delaware (or, solely in the case that the Delaware Court of Chancery declines to accept jurisdiction over a particular matter, any state or federal court within the State of Delaware) (the “Chosen Courts”).

13.This letter agreement, together with the Acquisition Agreement and the Limited Guarantee, constitute the entire agreement, and supersede and cancel all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings and statements, written or oral, among the undersigned or any of their respective Affiliates or any other Person, with respect to the subject matter hereof.
