(d)Each of the Term A-1 Banks severally agrees to make loans to Borrower in Dollars (each such loan by a Term A-1 Bank, a “Term A-1 Loan”), during the Term A-1 Loan Availability Period, in an aggregate amount not to exceed its Term A-1 Loan Commitment; provided, that (x) to the extent that Term A-1 Loans in an aggregate principal amount equal to $50,000,000 (the “Term A-1 Incremental Amount”) shall not have been made on the Closing Date, the Total Term A-1 Term Loan Commitments shall be automatically terminated at 5:00 p.m. (New York Time) ratably among the Term A-1 Banks on the Closing Date in an amount equal to the excess of the Term A-1 Incremental Amount over the actual amount of Term A-1 Loans made on the Closing Date, (y) to the extent that Term A-1 Loans (exclusive of Term A-1 Loans subject to clause (x)) in an aggregate principal amount equal to the Term A-1 Incremental Amount shall not have been made during the period commencing on the Closing Date through and including January 18, 2018 (the “Second Term A-1 Commitment Termination Date”), the Total Term A-1 Term Loan Commitments shall be automatically terminated at 5:00 p.m. (New York Time) ratably among the Term A-1 Banks on the Second Term A-1 Commitment Termination Date in an amount equal to the excess of the Term A-1 Incremental Amount over the actual amount of Term A-1 Loans (exclusive of Term A-1 Loans subject to clause (x)) made during the period commencing on the Closing Date through and including the Second Term A-1 Commitment Termination Date and (z) the remaining unused Total Term A-1 Loan Commitments shall automatically terminate at 5:00 p.m. (New York time) on the Final Term A-1 Loan Availability Date.  Each of the Term A-2 Banks severally agrees to make loans to Borrower in Dollars (each such loan by a Term A-2 Bank, a “Term A-2 Loan”), during the Term A-2 Loan Availability Period, in an aggregate amount not to exceed its Term A-2 Loan Commitment.  Unused Total Term A-2 Loan Commitments shall terminate at 5:00 p.m. (New York time) on the Final Term A-2 Loan Availability Date.

However, the failure of any Bank to make any advance of each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the date specified therefor shall not relieve any other Bank of its obligation to make any advance of its Loans specified hereby to be made on such date.

SECTION 2.02.  Bid Rate Loans.  (a) So long as Borrower has an Investment Grade Rating and wishes to request offers from the Ratable Loan Banks to make Bid Rate Loans, it shall transmit to Administrative Agent by facsimile a request (a “Bid Rate Quote Request”) substantially in the form of EXHIBIT G-1 so as to be received not later than 10:30 a.m. (New York time) on the fourth Banking Day prior to the date for funding of the Bid Rate Loan(s) proposed therein, specifying:

Any Bid Rate Quote so made shall (subject to Borrower’s satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in this Agreement to its entitlement to an advance) be irrevocable except with the written consent of Administrative Agent given on the instructions of Borrower. Bid Rate Loans to be funded pursuant to a Bid Rate Quote may, as provided in Section 12.16, be funded by a Ratable Loan Bank’s Designated Lender. A Ratable Loan Bank making a Bid Rate Quote shall specify in its Bid Rate Quote whether the related Bid Rate Loans are intended to be funded by such Ratable Loan Bank’s Designated Lender, as provided in Section 12.16.

(2)Each Bid Rate Quote shall be in substantially the form of EXHIBIT G-3 and shall in any case specify:

(i)the proposed date of funding of the Bid Rate Loan(s);

(v)the identity of the quoting Ratable Loan Bank.

(3)Any Bid Rate Quote shall be disregarded if it:

(i)(vi) is not substantially in conformity with EXHIBIT G-3 or does not specify all of the information required by sub-paragraph (c)(2) above;

(ii)(vii) contains qualifying, conditional or similar language (except for an aggregate limitation as provided in subparagraph (c)(2)(ii)(z) above);

(iii)(viii) proposes terms other than or in addition to those set forth in the applicable Invitation for Bid Rate Quotes (except for an aggregate limitation as provided in subparagraph (c)(2)(ii)(z) above); or

(iv)(ix) arrives after the time set forth in sub-paragraph (c)(1) above.

(d)Administrative Agent shall no later than 10:15 a.m. (New York City time) on the third Banking Day prior to the proposed date for the requested Bid Rate Loan notify Borrower in writing of the terms of any Bid Rate Quote submitted by a Ratable Loan Bank that is in accordance with paragraph (c). Any subsequent Bid Rate Quote shall be disregarded by Administrative Agent unless such subsequent Bid Rate Quote is submitted solely to correct a manifest error in such former Bid Rate Quote. Administrative Agent’s notice to Borrower shall specify (A) the aggregate principal amount of Bid Rate Loans for which offers have been received for each Interest Period specified in the related Bid Rate Quote Request, (B) the respective principal amounts and LIBORTerm SOFR Bid Margins so offered and (C) if applicable, limitations on the aggregate principal amount of Bid Rate Loans for which offers in any single Bid Rate Quote may be accepted.

(e)Not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the third Banking Day prior to the proposed date of funding of the Bid Rate Loan, Borrower shall notify Administrative Agent of its acceptance or non-acceptance of the offers so notified to it pursuant to paragraph (d). A notice of acceptance shall be substantially in the form of EXHIBIT G-4 and shall specify the aggregate principal amount of offers for each Interest Period that are accepted. Borrower may accept any Bid Rate Quote in whole or in part; provided that:

(1)the principal amount of each Bid Rate Loan may not exceed the applicable amount set forth in the related Bid Rate Quote Request or be less than Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) and shall be an integral multiple of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000);

(2)acceptance of offers with respect to a particular Interest Period may only be made on the basis of ascending LIBORTerm SOFR Bid Margins offered for such Interest Period from the lowest effective cost; and

(3)Borrower may not accept any offer that is described in subparagraph (c)(3) or that otherwise fails to comply with the requirements of this Agreement.

(f)If offers are made by two (2) or more Ratable Loan Banks with the same LIBORTerm SOFR Bid Margins, for a greater aggregate principal amount than the amount in respect of which such offers are permitted to be accepted for the related Interest Period, the principal amount of Bid Rate Loans

52


in respect of which such offers are accepted shall be allocated by Administrative Agent among such Ratable Loan Banks as nearly as possible (in multiples of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000)) in proportion to the aggregate principal amounts of such offers. Administrative Agent shall promptly (and in any event within one (1) Banking Day after such offers are accepted) notify Borrower and each such Bank in writing of any such allocation of Bid Rate Loans. Determinations by Administrative Agent of the allocation of Bid Rate Loans shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

(g)In the event that Borrower accepts the offer(s) contained in one (1) or more Bid Rate Quotes in accordance with paragraph (e), the Ratable Loan Bank(s) making such offer(s) shall make a Bid Rate Loan in the accepted amount (as allocated, if necessary, pursuant to paragraph (f)) on the date specified therefor, in accordance with the procedures specified in Section 2.05.

(h)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, each Ratable Loan Bank shall be required to fund its Pro Rata Share of the Available Ratable Commitment in accordance with Section 2.01(b) despite the fact that any Ratable Loan Bank’s Ratable Loan Commitment may have been or may be exceeded as a result of such Ratable Loan Bank’s making Bid Rate Loans.

(i)A Ratable Loan Bank who is notified that it has been selected to make a Bid Rate Loan as provided above may designate its Designated Lender (if any) to fund such Bid Rate Loan on its behalf, as described in Section 12.16. Any Designated Lender which funds a Bid Rate Loan shall on and after the time of such funding become the obligee under such Bid Rate Loan and be entitled to receive payment thereof when due. No Ratable Loan Bank shall be relieved of its obligation to fund a Bid Rate Loan, and no Designated Lender shall assume such obligation, prior to the time the applicable Bid Rate Loan is funded.

SECTION 2.03.  Swingline Loan Subfacility.

(a)Swingline Commitment.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 2.03, each Swingline Lender, in its individual capacity, agrees to make certain revolving credit loans in Dollars to Borrower (each a “Swingline Loan” and, collectively, the “Swingline Loans”) from time to time during the term hereof in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the Swingline Loans requested by Borrower in its notice of borrowing described in clause (b) below; provided, however, that the aggregate amount of Swingline Loans outstanding at any time shall not exceed Seventy-Five Million Dollars ($75,000,000) (the “Swingline Commitment”); provided, further, that (i) the aggregate amount of Swingline Loans outstanding to any Swingline Lender shall not exceed the lesser of (A) Twelve Million Five-Hundred Thousand Dollars ($12,500,000) and (B) such Swingline Lender’s Ratable Loan Commitment minus its Ratable Credit Exposure and (ii) the Total Ratable Credit Exposure plus the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Bid Rate Loans shall not exceed the aggregate amount of the Ratable Loan Commitments. Subject to the limitations set forth herein, any amounts repaid in respect of Swingline Loans may be reborrowed.

(b)Swingline Borrowings.

(1)Notice of Borrowing. With respect to any Swingline Loan, Borrower shall give Swingline Lenders and Administrative Agent notice in writing which is received by Swingline Lenders and Administrative Agent not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the proposed date of such Swingline Loan (and confirmed by telephone by such time), specifying (A) that a Swingline Loan is being requested, (B) the amount of such Swingline Loan, (C) the proposed date of such Swingline Loan, which shall be a Banking Day and (D) stating that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing both before and after giving effect to such Swingline Loan. Such notice shall be irrevocable.

53


(2)Minimum Amounts. Each Swingline Loan shall be at least Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000) and, or an integral multiple of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000).

(3)Repayment of Swingline Loans. Each Swingline Loan shall be due and payable on the earliest of (A) five (5) Banking Days from and including the date of such Swingline Loan or (B) the Ratable Loan Maturity Date. If, and to the extent, any Swingline Loans shall be outstanding on the date any Ratable Loan is advanced, such Swingline Loans shall first be repaid from the proceeds of such Ratable Loan prior to the disbursement of the same to Borrower. If, and to the extent, a Ratable Loan is not requested prior to the earliest of the Ratable Loan Maturity Date, the last calendar day of the month in which such Swingline Loan is made, or the end of the five (5) Banking Day period after such Swingline Loan was made, or unless Borrower shall have notified Administrative Agent and the Swingline Lenders prior to 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the third (3rd) Banking Day after such Swingline Loan was made that Borrower intends to reimburse Swingline Lender for the amount of such Swingline Loan with funds other than proceeds of the Ratable Loans, Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Ratable Loan comprised entirely of Base Rate Loans in the amount of the applicable Swingline Loan then outstanding, the proceeds of which shall be used to repay such Swingline Loan to Swingline Lenders. In addition, if (x) Borrower does not repay a Swingline Loan on or prior to the end of such five (5) Banking Day period, or (y) a Default or Event of Default shall have occurred during such five (5) Banking Day period, a Swingline Lender may, at any time, in its sole discretion, by written notice to Borrower and Administrative Agent, demand repayment of all Swingline Loans by way of a Ratable Loan, in which case Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Ratable Loan comprised entirely of Base Rate Loans in the amount of such Swingline Loans then outstanding, the proceeds of which shall be used to repay such Swingline Loans to Swingline Lenders. Any Ratable Loan which is deemed requested by Borrower in accordance with this Section 2.03(b)(3) is hereinafter referred to as a “Mandatory Borrowing”. Each Bank hereby irrevocably agrees to make Ratable Loans promptly upon receipt of notice from a Swingline Lender or Administrative Agent of any such deemed request for a Mandatory Borrowing in the amount and in the manner specified in the preceding sentences and on the date such notice is received by such Bank (or the next Banking Day if such notice is received after 12:00 p.m. (New York City time)) notwithstanding (I) the amount of the Mandatory Borrowing may not comply with the minimum amount of Ratable Loans otherwise required hereunder, (II) whether any conditions specified in Section 4.02 are then satisfied, (III) whether a Default or an Event of Default then exists, (IV) failure of any such deemed request for a Ratable Loan to be made by the time otherwise required in Section 2.05, (V) the date of such Mandatory Borrowing (provided that such date must be a Banking Day), or (VI) any termination of the Loan Commitments immediately prior to such Mandatory Borrowing or contemporaneously therewith; provided, however, that no Bank shall be obligated to make Ratable Loans in respect of a Mandatory Borrowing if a Default or an Event of Default then exists and the applicable Swingline Loan was made by Swingline Lenders without receipt of a written notice of borrowing in the form specified in Section 2.03(b)(1) or after Administrative Agent has delivered a notice of Default or Event of Default which has not been rescinded.

(4)Purchase of Participations. In the event that any Mandatory Borrowing cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required above (including, without limitation, as a result of the commencement of a proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code with respect to Borrower), then each Ratable Loan Bank hereby agrees that it shall forthwith purchase (as of the date the Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, but adjusted for any payment received from Borrower on or after such date and prior to such purchase) from Swingline Lenders such participations in the outstanding Swingline Loans as shall be necessary to cause each such Ratable Loan Bank to share in such Swingline Loans ratably based upon its Pro Rata Share (determined before giving effect to any termination of the Loan Commitments), provided that (A) all interest payable on the Swingline

54


Loans with respect to any participation shall be for the account of Swingline Lenders until but excluding the day upon which the Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, and (B) in the event of a delay between the day upon which the Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred and the time any purchase of a participation pursuant to this sentence is actually made, the purchasing Ratable Loan Bank shall be required to pay to Swingline Lenders interest on the principal amount of such participation for each day from and including the day upon which the Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred to but excluding the date of payment for such participation, at the rate equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate, for the two (2) Banking Days after the date the Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, and thereafter at a rate equal to the Base Rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Ratable Loan Bank shall be obligated to purchase a participation in any Swingline Loan if a Default or an Event of Default then exists and such Swingline Loan was made by Swingline Lenders without receipt of a written notice of borrowing in the form specified in Section 2.03(b)(1) or after Administrative Agent has delivered a notice of Default or Event of Default which has not been rescinded.

(c)Interest Rate. Each Swingline Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day from the date such Swingline Loan is made until the date it is repaid, at a rate per annum equal to the BaseAdjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Base RateDaily SOFR Loans.

(d)Replacement and Resignation of Swingline Lender.  Any Swingline Lender may be replaced at any time by written agreement among Borrower, Administrative Agent, the replaced Swingline Lender and the successor Swingline Lender.  Administrative Agent shall notify the Ratable Loan Banks of any such replacement of a Swingline Lender.  At the time any such replacement shall become effective, Borrower shall pay all unpaid interest accrued for the account of the replaced Swingline Lender pursuant to Section 2.03(c).  From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (x) the successor Swingline Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of the replaced Swingline Lender under this Agreement with respect to Swingline Loans made thereafter and (y) references herein to the term “Swingline Lender” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Swingline Lender, or to such successor and all previous Swingline Lenders and all other Swingline Lenders, as the context shall require.  After the replacement of a Swingline Lender hereunder, the replaced Swingline Lender shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of a Swingline Lender under this Agreement with respect to Swingline Loans made by it prior to its replacement, but shall not be required to make additional Swingline Loans.  Subject to the appointment and acceptance by Administrative Agent and Borrower of a successor Swingline Lender, any Swingline Lender may resign as a Swingline Lender at any time upon thirty days’ prior written notice to Administrative Agent, Borrower and the Ratable Loan Banks, in which case, such Swingline Lender shall be replaced as provided above.

SECTION 2.04.  Advances, Generally.  The amount of each advance hereunder shall, subject to Section 2.13, be at least One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (unless less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) is available for disbursement pursuant to the terms hereof at the time of any advance, in which case the amount of such advance shall be equal to such remaining availability) and in an integral multiple of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000). Additional restrictions on the amounts and timing of, and conditions to the making of, advances of Bid Rate Loans and Swingline Loans are set forth in Sections 2.02 and 2.03, respectively.

Each advance shall be subject, in addition to the limitations and conditions applicable to advances of the Loans generally, to Administrative Agent’s receipt, in accordance with the timing requirements of Section 2.05 with respect to requests for advances, a Notice of Borrowing.

55


SECTION 2.05.  Procedures for Advances.  In the case of advances of Ratable Loans and Term Loans, Borrower shall submit to Administrative Agent a Notice of Borrowing for each advance, stating the date of the Loan, the amount of the Loan, the type of Loan and, in the case of LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, the initial Interest Period for such LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, no later than (a) in the case of advances of Base Rate Loans and Daily SOFR Loans, 12:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date, in the case of advances of Base Rate Loans,  which is the proposed date of such Base Rate Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, and, (b) in the case of advances of LIBOR Loans,Term SOFR Loans, 12:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date which is three (3) U.S. Government Securities Banking Days prior to the date such advance is to be made. In the case of advances of Bid Rate Loans, Borrower shall submit a Bid Rate Quote Request at the time specified in Section 2.02.  In the case of advances of Swingline Loans, Borrower shall submit a notice of borrowing at the time specified in Section 2.03.  Administrative Agent, upon its receipt of the Notice of Borrowing, will so notify the Ratable Loan Banks by facsimile. Not later than 11:30 a.m. (New York time) on the date of each advance (or 2:00 p.m. (New York time) in the case of a Base Rate Loan and a Daily SOFR Loan for which Borrower has made a Loan request on such date), each applicable Bank shall, through its Applicable Lending Office and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, make the amount to be advanced by it on such day available to Administrative Agent, at Administrative Agent’s Office and in immediately available funds for the account of Borrower.  The amount so received by Administrative Agent shall, subject to the conditions of this Agreement, be made available to Borrower, in immediately available funds, by Administrative Agent to an account designated by Borrower.

SECTION 2.06.  Interest Periods; Renewals.  In the case of the LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, Borrower shall select an Interest Period in a Notice of Borrowing of any duration in accordance with the definition of Interest Period in Section 1.01, subject to the following limitations: (1) no Interest Period may extend beyond the applicable Maturity Date for that type of Loan; (2) if an Interest Period would end on a day which is not a U.S. Government Securities Banking Day, such Interest Period shall be extended to the next U.S. Government Securities Banking Day, unless such U.S. Government Securities Banking Day would fall in the next calendar month, in which event such Interest Period shall end on the immediately preceding U.S. Government Securities Banking Day; (3) only eight (8) discrete segments of a Ratable Loan Bank’s Ratable Loan bearing interest at a LIBOR Interest Ratebased upon SOFR for a designated Interest Period pursuant to a particular Election, Conversion or Continuation, may be outstanding at any one time (each such segment of each Ratable Loan Bank’s Ratable Loan corresponding to a proportionate segment of each of the other Ratable Loan Banks’ Ratable Loans) and (4) only five (5) discrete segments of a Term Loan Bank’s applicable Term Loans bearing interest at a LIBOR Interest Ratebased upon SOFR for a designated Interest Period pursuant to a particular Election, Conversion or Continuation, may be outstanding at any one time (each such segment of each Term Loan Bank’s applicable Term A-1 Loans and Term A-2 Loans corresponding to a proportionate segment of each of the other Term Loan Banks’ applicable Term A-1 Loans and Term A-2 Loans).

Upon notice to Administrative Agent as provided in Section 2.14, Borrower may Continue any LIBORSOFR Loan on the last day of the Interest Period of the same or different duration in accordance with the limitations provided above.

The parties understand that during a Leverage Pricing Period the applicable interest rate for the Obligations and certain fees set forth herein may be determined and/or adjusted from time to time based upon certain financial ratios and/or other information to be provided or certified to the Banks by Borrower (the “Borrower Information”).  If it is subsequently determined that any such Borrower Information was incorrect (for whatever reason, including without limitation because of a subsequent restatement of earnings by Borrower) at the time it was delivered to Administrative Agent, and if the applicable interest rate or fees calculated for any period during a Leverage Pricing Period were lower than they should have been had the correct information been timely provided, then, such interest rate and such fees for such period shall be

56


automatically recalculated using correct Borrower Information.  Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Borrower in writing of any additional interest and fees due because of such recalculation, and Borrower shall pay such additional interest or fees due to Administrative Agent, for the account of each Bank, within 5 Banking Days of receipt of such written notice.  Any recalculation of interest or fees required by this provision shall survive for a period of one year following the termination of this Agreement, and this provision shall not in any way limit any of Administrative Agent’s, a Fronting Bank’s, or any Bank’s other rights under this Agreement.

SECTION 2.07.  Interest.  Borrower shall pay interest to Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Bank, on the outstanding and unpaid principal amount of the Loans, at a rate per annum as follows: (1) for Base Rate Loans at a rate equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin; (2) for LIBOR Term SOFR Loans at a rate equal to Adjusted Term SOFR plus the Applicable Margin; (3) for Daily SOFR Loans at a rate equal to the applicable LIBOR InterestAdjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate plus the Applicable Margin; and (34) for Bid Rate Loans at a rate equal to the applicable LIBORSOFR Bid Rate. Any principal amount not paid when due (when scheduled, at acceleration or otherwise) shall bear interest thereafter, payable on demand, at the Default Rate and, with respect to any other Obligation that is not paid when due (when scheduled, at acceleration or otherwise), shall bear interest thereafter, payable on demand, at the Default Rate applicable to Base Rate Loans.

The interest rate on Base Rate Loans and Daily SOFR Loans shall change when the Base Rate or Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate, as applicable, changes. Interest on Base Rate Loans, LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, Daily SOFR Loans and Bid Rate Loans shall not exceed the maximum amount permitted under applicable law. Interest shall be calculated for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a year consisting of three hundred sixty (360) days, except interest on Base Rate Loans shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as applicable.

Accrued interest shall be due and payable in arrears, (x) in the case of Base Rate Loans, on the first Banking Day of each calendar month and, (y) in the case of both LIBORTerm SOFR Loans and Bid Rate Loans, at the expiration of the Interest Period applicable thereto, but no less frequently than once every three (3) months determined on the basis of the first (1st) day of the Interest Period applicable to the Loan in question and (z) in the case of Daily SOFR Loans, on the fifth (5th) U.S. Government Securities Banking Day of each calendar month for the preceding calendar month; provided, however, that interest accruing at the Default Rate shall be due and payable on demand.

The outstanding principal amount of each Bid Rate Loan evidenced by each Bid Rate Loan Note, and all accrued interest and other sums with respect thereto, shall become due and payable to the Bank making such Bid Rate Loan at the earlier of the expiration of the Interest Period applicable thereto or the Ratable Loan Maturity Date, as the same may be accelerated in accordance with this Agreement.  The Term A-1 Loans shall mature, and all outstanding principal and accrued interest and Obligations in respect thereof shall be paid in full, on the Term A-1 Loan Maturity Date, or as the same may be accelerated in accordance with this Agreement.  The Term A-2 Loans shall mature, and all outstanding principal and accrued interest and other Obligations in respect thereof shall be paid in full, on the Term A-2 Loan Maturity Date, as the same may be accelerated in accordance with this Agreement.

The date, amount, interest rate, type and duration of Interest Periods (if applicable) of each Loan made by each Bank to Borrower, and each payment made on account of the principal thereof, shall be evidenced by one or more accounts or records maintained by such Bank and by Administrative Agent in

58


the ordinary course of business.  The accounts or records maintained by Administrative Agent and each Bank shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligation of Borrower hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to the Obligations.  In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Bank and the accounts and records of Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.

In connection with a Refinancing Mortgage, Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent, a mortgage note, payable to Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Banks receiving the benefit of, and which shall be secured by, the applicable Refinancing Mortgage. Such note shall be in such form as shall be requested by Borrower, subject to Administrative Agent’s reasonable approval. Each reference in this Agreement to the “Notes” shall be deemed to refer to and include any or all of such mortgage notes, as the context may require.

SECTION 2.10.  Prepayments.

(a)Without prepayment premium or penalty (other than any applicable Prepayment Premium) but subject to Section 3.05, Borrower may, upon same Banking Day’s notice to Administrative Agent in the case of the Base Rate Loans, upon at least one (1) U.S. Government Securities Banking Day’s notice to the Administrative Agent in the case of Daily SOFR Loans, and at least three (3) U.S. Government Securities Banking Days’ notice to Administrative Agent in the case of LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, which notice shall have been received not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on such applicable date, prepay in whole or in part the Ratable Loans or any of the Term Loans; provided, that (1) any partial prepayment under the foregoing shall be in integral multiples of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) and (2) each prepayment under the foregoing shall include, at Administrative Agent’s option, all interest accrued on the amount of principal prepaid to (but excluding) the date of prepayment.  Borrower shall have the right to prepay Bid Rate Loans only if so provided in the Bid Rate Quote Request, and otherwise with the consent of the Ratable Loan Bank or the Designated Lender that funded the Bid Rate Loan that Borrower desires to prepay. Borrower may, from time to time on any Banking Day so long as prior notice is given to Administrative Agent and Swingline Lender no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the day on which Borrower intends to make such prepayment, prepay any Swingline Loans in whole or in part in amounts aggregating at least One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000), and in an integral multiple of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) (or, if less, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Swingline Loans then outstanding) by paying the principal amount to be prepaid together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment by initiating a wire transfer of the principal and interest on the Swingline Loans no later than 1:00 P.M. (New York City time) on such day and Borrower shall deliver a federal reference number evidencing such wire transfer to Administrative Agent as soon as available thereafter on such day.

(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that Borrower makes a prepayment of principal of all or any portion of the Term A-2 Loans (whether voluntary or otherwise) prior to the second anniversary of the Closing Date, Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent, for the ratable account of the Term A-2 Banks, a prepayment premium (the “Prepayment Premium”) equal to the percentage of the principal amount so prepaid set forth in the following table corresponding to the period during which such prepayment is made.  Such fee shall be due and payable on the date of any such prepayment:

Period

Prepayment Premium

After Closing Date and prior to the 1-year anniversary of the Closing Date

2.0%

On or after the 1-year anniversary of the Closing Date and prior to the 2-year anniversary of the Closing Date

1.0%

The Loan Parties and the Term A-2 Banks expressly agree as follows:

(x)(A)All amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.10 are reasonable and are the product of an arm’s length transaction between sophisticated business people, ably represented by counsel; (B) all such amounts shall be payable notwithstanding the then prevailing market rates at the time payment is made; (C) there has been a course of conduct between the Banks and the Loan Parties giving specific consideration in this transaction for such agreement to pay all such amounts; (D) the Loan Parties, Administrative Agent and the Term A-2 Banks shall be estopped hereafter from claiming differently than as agreed to herein; (E) their agreement to pay all such amounts is a material inducement to the Banks to make the Loans, and (F) such amounts represents a good faith, reasonable estimate and calculation of the lost profits or damages of Administrative Agent and the Term A-2 Banks and it would be impractical and extremely difficult to ascertain the actual amount of damages to Administrative Agent and the Term A-2 Banks or profits lost by Administrative Agent and the Banks as a result of the occurrence of the events described in such Sections.

(y)Any amounts payable in accordance with this Section 2.10 shall be presumed to be equal to the liquidated damages sustained by the Term A-2 Banks as the result of the occurrence of the events described in this Section and the Loan Parties agree that it is reasonable under the circumstances currently existing.  THE LOAN PARTIES EXPRESSLY WAIVE TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW THE PROVISIONS OF ANY PRESENT OR FUTURE STATUTE OR LAW THAT PROHIBITS OR MAY PROHIBIT THE COLLECTION OF ANY SUCH AMOUNTS IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ACCELERATION.

SECTION 2.11.  Method of Payment.

Borrower shall make each payment under this Agreement and under the Notes not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date when due in Dollars to Administrative Agent at Administrative Agent’s Office in immediately available funds, without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff. Borrower shall deliver federal reference number(s) evidencing the applicable wire transfer(s) to Administrative Agent as soon as available thereafter on such day. Administrative Agent will thereafter, on the day of its receipt of each such payment(s), cause to be distributed to each Bank (1) such Bank’s appropriate share (based upon the respective outstanding principal amounts and interest due under the Loans of the Banks) of the payments of principal and interest in like funds for the account of such Bank’s Applicable Lending Office; and (2) fees payable to such Bank by Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. In the event Administrative Agent fails to pay such amounts to such Bank within one Banking Day of receipt of such amounts, Administrative Agent shall pay interest on such amounts until paid at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate from time to time in effect.

Except to the extent provided in this Agreement, whenever any payment to be made under this Agreement or under the Notes is due on any day other than a Banking Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Banking Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of the payment of interest and other fees, as the case may be.

SECTION 2.12.  Elections, Conversions or Continuation of Loans.

Subject to the provisions of Article III and Sections 2.06 and 2.13, Borrower shall have the right to Elect to have all or a portion of any advance of the Ratable Loans or Term Loans be LIBORTerm SOFR

60


Loans, to Convert Base Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Loans into LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, to Convert LIBORTerm SOFR Loans into Base Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Loans, or to Continue LIBORTerm SOFR Loans as LIBORTerm SOFR Loans, at any time or from time to time, provided that: (1) Borrower shall give Administrative Agent notice of each such Election, Conversion or Continuation as provided in Section 2.14; and (2) a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan may be Continued or Converted only on the last day of the applicable Interest Period for such LIBORTerm SOFR Loan.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, each Election, Continuation and Conversion shall be applicable to each Bank’s applicable Loans in accordance with its Pro Rata Share of such Loans.  Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Banks, may require, by notice to Borrower, that (i) no outstanding Loan may be converted to or continued as a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan and (ii) unless repaid, each Loan shall be converted to a Base Rate Loan at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto.

SECTION 2.13.  Minimum Amounts.

With respect to the Ratable Loans and Term Loans as a whole, each Election and each Conversion thereof shall be in an amount at least equal to One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) and in integral multiples of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) or such lesser amount as shall be available or outstanding, as the case may be.

SECTION 2.14.  Certain Notices Regarding Elections, Conversions and Continuations of Loans.

Notices by Borrower to Administrative Agent of Elections, Conversions and Continuations of LIBORTerm SOFR Loans shall be irrevocable and shall be effective only if received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the number of U.S. Government Securities Banking Days prior to the date of the relevant Election, Conversion or Continuation specified below:

Notice

Promptly following its receipt of any such notice, Administrative Agent shall so advise the applicable Banks by facsimile. Each such notice of Election shall specify the portion of the amount of the advance that is to be LIBORSOFR Loans (subject to Section 2.13) and the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto (subject to Section 2.06); each such notice of Conversion shall specify the LIBORSOFR Loans or Base Rate Loans to be Converted; and each such notice of Conversion or Continuation shall specify the date of Conversion or Continuation (which shall be a U.S. Government Securities Banking Day), the amount thereof (subject to Section 2.13) and the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto (subject to Section 2.06). In the event that Borrower fails to Elect to have any portion of an advance of the Ratable Loans or Term Loans be LIBORSOFR Loans, the portion of such advance for which a LIBORSOFR Loan Election is not made shall constitute Base Rate Loans. Subject to the terms of the last sentence of Section 2.12, in the event that Borrower fails to Continue LIBORTerm SOFR Loans within the time period and as otherwise provided in this Section, such LIBORTerm SOFR Loans will be automatically Continued as LIBORTerm SOFR Loans with an Interest Period of one month on the last day of the then current applicable Interest Period for such LIBORTerm SOFR Loans.

61


SECTION 2.15.  Payments Generally.  If any Bank shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.03(b)(4), 2.17(h) or 10.05, then Administrative Agent may, in its discretion and notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by Administrative Agent for the account of such Bank for the benefit of Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lenders or the Fronting Banks to satisfy such Bank’s obligations to it under such Section until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid, and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Bank under any such Section, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by Administrative Agent in its discretion.

SECTION 2.16.  Changes of Loan Commitments; Incremental Increases.

(a)At any time, Borrower shall have the right, without premium or penalty, to terminate any unused Loan Commitments existing as of the date of such termination, in whole or in part, from time to time, provided that: (1) Borrower shall give notice of each such termination to Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify each of the Banks holding such Loan Commitments) no later than 10:00 a.m. (New York time) on the date which is three (3) U.S. Government Securities Banking Days prior to the effectiveness of such termination (it being understood that any notice of termination may be conditioned upon the consummation of any financing or acquisition or similar transaction and, to the extent such condition is not satisfied by the effective date specified therein, such notice of termination may be revoked or the effective date specified therein may be delayed); (2) (x) the Ratable Loan Commitments of each of the Ratable Loan Banks must be terminated (and, in the case of a partial termination, on a pro rata basis) (taking into account, however, Section 2.02(h)) simultaneously with those of the other Ratable Loan Banks, (y) the Term A-1 Loan Commitments of each of the Term A-1 Banks must be terminated (and, in the case of a partial termination, on a pro rata basis) (taking into account, however, Section 2.02(h)) simultaneously with those of the other Term A-1 Banks, and (z) the Term A-2 Loan Commitments of each of the Term A-2 Banks must be terminated (and, in the case of a partial termination, on a pro rata basis) (taking into account, however, Section 2.02(h)) simultaneously with those of the other Term A-2 Banks; and (3) each partial termination of the Loan Commitments in the aggregate shall be in an integral multiple of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000).  A reduction of the unused Ratable Loan Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.16(a) shall not effect a reduction in the Swingline Commitments (unless so elected by Borrower) until the aggregate unused Ratable Loan Commitments have been reduced to an amount equal to or less than the Swingline Commitments.

(b)The Loan Commitments and the Swingline Commitment, to the extent terminated pursuant to Section 2.16(a), may not be reinstated.

(c)Unless a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrower, by written notice to Administrative Agent, may request to increase the Ratable Loan Commitments, Term A-1 Loan Commitment or Term A-2 Loan Commitment or enter into one or more other tranches of revolving loans or term loans (each an “Incremental Increase”), in each case by/in an amount not less than Twenty Five Million Dollars ($25,000,000) per request and not more than Six Hundred Million Dollars ($600,000,000) in the aggregate (such that the aggregate amount of the Ratable Loan Commitments, the unused Term Loan Commitments and the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans after any such Incremental Increase shall never exceed Two Billion Dollars ($2,000,000,000)); provided that (a) any such request shall be accompanied by a certificate from Borrower confirming that the representations and warranties of Borrower and each other Loan Party contained in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct in all material respects on and as of the date of the requested Incremental Increase (except in those cases where such representation or warranty expressly relates to an earlier date or is qualified as to “materiality”, “Material Adverse Change” or similar language (which shall be true and correct in all respects as qualified therein) and except for changes in factual circumstances

62


permitted hereunder), (b) any Bank which is a party to this Agreement prior to such request for an Incremental Increase, at its sole discretion, may elect to provide a portion of such Incremental Increase but shall not have any obligation to provide any portion of such Incremental Increase (and it being agreed and understood that Borrower or the arrangers of such Incremental Increase shall not be required to offer to or solicit from any existing Bank the opportunity to provide a portion of such Incremental Increase), and (c) to the extent that a Bank does not elect, or is not offered, to provide any part of a requested Incremental Increase, the Lead Arrangers shall use commercially reasonable efforts to locate additional Qualified Institutions willing to hold commitments for the requested Incremental Increase, and Borrower may also identify additional Qualified Institutions willing to hold commitments for the requested Incremental Increase; provided however that Administrative Agent and, in the case of an Incremental Increase in the aggregate Ratable Loan Commitments, each Swingline Lender and each Fronting Bank, shall have the right to approve any such additional Qualified Institutions, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  In the event that the Banks or additional Qualified Institutions commit to any such Incremental Increase, the Loan Commitments of the Banks shall be increased (as applicable), the Pro Rata Shares of the Banks shall be adjusted, new Notes shall be issued, Borrower shall make such borrowings and repayments as shall be necessary to effect the reallocation of the Loans so that the Loans are held by the Banks in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares after giving effect to such Incremental Increase, and other changes shall be made to the Loan Documents as may be necessary to reflect the aggregate amount, if any, by which the Banks or additional Qualified Institutions have agreed to increase their respective Loan Commitments or make new Loan Commitments in response to Borrower’s request for an Incremental Increase pursuant to this Section 2.16(c), in each case without the consent of the Banks other than those Banks providing such Incremental Increase. The fees payable by Borrower upon any such Incremental Increase shall be agreed upon by the Lead Arrangers and Borrower at the time of such increase.  Any Incremental Increase (i) shall rank pari passu in right of payment with the applicable Loans hereunder, (ii) shall not mature earlier than, (A) with respect to an Incremental Increase of the Ratable Loan Commitments or in the form of a new tranche of revolving loans, the applicable Maturity Date for the Ratable Loan Commitments hereunder and (B) with respect to an Incremental Increase of the Term A-1 Loan Commitments or Term A-2 Loan Commitments, the applicable Maturity Date for such respective Term Loans (provided that no such limitation shall apply with respect to an Incremental Increase in the form of a new tranche of term loans) and (iii) all other terms of such Incremental Increase (other than the maturity date and matters in relation to pricing and fees, including, without limitation, interest rate, facility fees, commitment fees, prepayment premiums, upfront fees, arranger fees, or other similar fees applicable to such Incremental Increase) that apply prior to the Maturity Date of the applicable Loans, if not consistent with the terms of the applicable Loans hereunder, shall be reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent.  In connection with any Incremental Increase pursuant to this Section 2.16, any Bank becoming a party hereto shall (1) execute such documents and agreements as Administrative Agent may reasonably request and (2) in the case of any Bank that is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside of the United States of America, provide to Administrative Agent, its name, address, tax identification number and/or such other information as shall be necessary for Administrative Agent to comply with “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulationsAnti-Money Laundering Laws, including without limitation, the PatriotPATRIOT Act.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 2.16(c) shall constitute or be deemed to constitute an agreement by any Bank to increase its Loan Commitment hereunder.

SECTION 2.17.  Letters of Credit.

(a)Borrower, by notice to Administrative Agent and the applicable Fronting Bank, may request, in lieu of advances of proceeds of the Ratable Loans, that such Fronting Bank issue unconditional, irrevocable standby letters of credit in Dollars (each, a “Letter of Credit”) for the account of Borrower or its designee (which shall be an Affiliate of Borrower) (it being understood that the issuance of a Letter of

63


Credit for the account of a designee shall not in any way relieve Borrower of any of its obligations hereunder), payable by sight drafts, for such beneficiaries and with such other terms as Borrower shall specify. Unless the applicable Fronting Bank has received written notice from Administrative Agent, not less than one (1) Banking Day prior to the requested date of issuance or amendment of the applicable Letter of Credit, that one or more applicable conditions contained in Section 4.02 shall not have been satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, such Fronting Bank, on the requested date, shall issue a Letter of Credit for the account of Borrower or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with such Fronting Bank’s usual and customary business practices. Promptly upon issuance of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Fronting Bank shall notify Administrative Agent and Administrative Agent shall notify each of the Banks by telephone or by facsimile.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Fronting Banks shall have no obligation hereunder to issue, and shall not 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 Sanctioned Country or (ii) in any manner that would result in a violation of any Sanctions by any party to this Agreement.

(b)To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit), Borrower shall hand deliver or telecopy (or transmit by electronic communication, if arrangements for doing so have been approved by the applicable Fronting Bank) to the Fronting Bank or Fronting Banks which are being requested to issue (or has or have issued, in the case of an amendment, renewal or extension) such Letter of Credit and Administrative Agent (reasonably in advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, but in any event no less than three Banking Days or such shorter period as the applicable Fronting Bank shall agree to) a notice requesting the issuance of a Letter of Credit, or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, renewed or extended, and specifying the date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (which shall be a Banking Day), the identity of the Fronting Bank(s) selected to issue such Letter of Credit, the date on which such Letter of Credit is to expire (which shall comply with paragraph (e) of this Section), the amount of such Letter of Credit, the name and address of the beneficiary thereof and such other information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, renew or extend such Letter of Credit.  If requested by the Fronting Bank, Borrower also shall submit a letter of credit application on the Fronting Bank’s standard form in connection with any request for a Letter of Credit; provided that the provisions of this Agreement shall prevail if there is an inconsistency between this Agreement and such letter of credit application.  Borrower and the Fronting Banks shall use reasonable efforts, to the extent practical, to cause any Letters of Credit to be issued by the Fronting Banks on a proportionate basis in accordance with their respective Letter of Credit Commitments, although, for the avoidance of doubt, no single Letter of Credit will be required to be issued by more than one Fronting Bank unless the amount of such Letter of Credit will exceed the available Letter of Credit Commitment of the applicable Fronting Bank.  A Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, renewed or extended only if (and upon issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of each Letter of Credit Borrower shall be deemed to represent and warrant that), after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (i) (x) the aggregate undrawn amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit issued by the applicable Fronting Bank at such time plus (y) the aggregate amount of all drawings under Letters of Credit issued by such Fronting Bank that have not yet been reimbursed by or on behalf of Borrower (including, for clarity, by means of advances of Loans pursuant to this Agreement) at such time shall not exceed its Letter of Credit Commitment (unless agreed to by such Fronting Bank), (ii) the aggregate LC Exposure at such time shall not exceed $150,000,000 (as such amount may be reduced by written notice from Borrower consistent with Section 2.16(a) so long as the outstanding Letters of Credit do not exceed such reduced amount), (iii) the Total Ratable Credit Exposure plus the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Bid Rate Loans shall not exceed the aggregate amount of the Ratable Loan Commitments, and (iv) the amount of such Letter of Credit shall not exceed the excess of the Fronting Bank’s Loan Commitment minus the sum of the outstanding principal amount of such Fronting Bank’s Ratable Loans, Swingline Exposure and LC Exposure at such time. Borrower may, at any time and from time to time, reduce the Letter of Credit Commitment of any Fronting Bank with the consent of such Fronting Bank; provided that Borrower shall

64


not reduce the Letter of Credit Commitment of any Fronting Bank if, after giving effect of such reduction, the conditions set forth in clauses (i) through (iv) of this paragraph (b) shall not be satisfied.  The amount of each Letter of Credit issued and outstanding shall effect a reduction, by an equal amount, of the Available Ratable Commitment as provided in Section 2.01(b) (such reduction to be allocated to each Ratable Loan Bank’s Ratable Loan Commitment ratably in accordance with the Banks’ respective Pro Rata Shares).

(c)The amount of each Letter of Credit shall be further subject to the conditions and limitations applicable to amounts of advances set forth in Section 2.04 and except as otherwise provided in clause (b) above, the procedures for the issuance of each Letter of Credit shall be the same as the procedures applicable to the making of advances as set forth in the first sentence of Section 2.05.

(d)The Fronting Bank’s issuance of each Letter of Credit shall be subject to Borrower’s satisfaction of all conditions precedent to its entitlement to an advance of proceeds of the Loans.

(e)Each Letter of Credit shall, unless approved by Administrative Agent and the applicable Fronting Bank, (i) expire no later than one (1) year after the date of its issuance (without regard to any automatic renewal provisions thereof), and (ii) be in a minimum amount of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000), or such lesser amount approved by the Fronting Bank. In no event shall a Letter of Credit expire later than the first anniversary of the Ratable Loan Maturity Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that, with the approval of Administrative Agent and each Fronting Bank with a Letter of Credit then outstanding, any Letters of Credit are issued and outstanding on the date that is fourteen (14) days prior to the Ratable Loan Maturity Date (any such Letter of Credit being referred to as an “Extended Letter of Credit”), Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent on such date by wire transfer of immediately available funds a cash deposit in the amount of such Letters of Credit in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.17(i). To the extent Borrower fails to provide such cash deposit with respect to any Extended Letter of Credit by the date that is fourteen (14) days prior to the Ratable Loan Maturity Date, such failure shall be treated as a drawing under such Extended Letter of Credit (in an amount equal to the maximum stated amount of such Letter of Credit), which shall be reimbursed (or participations therein funded) by the Banks in accordance with Section 2.17(h), with the proceeds being utilized to provide such cash deposit for such Extended Letter of Credit.  Such funds shall be held by Administrative Agent and applied to repay the amount of each drawing under such Letters of Credit on or after the Ratable Loan Maturity Date. Such funds, with any interest earned thereon, will be returned to Borrower (and may be returned from time to time with respect to any applicable Letter of Credit) on the earlier of (a) the date that the applicable Letter of Credit or Letters of Credit expire in accordance with their terms; and (b) the date that the applicable Letter of Credit or Letters of Credit are cancelled; provided that upon the expiration or cancellation of an Extended Letter of Credit for which the Ratable Loan Banks reimbursed (or funded participations in) a drawing deemed to have occurred as provided in this Section 2.17 but in respect of which the Ratable Loan Banks have not otherwise received payment for the amount so reimbursed or funded, Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Ratable Loan Banks the amount of such funds so reimbursed or funded for such Extended Letter of Credit, pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid reimbursements or funded participations of the Ratable Loan Banks in respect of such Extended Letter of Credit.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Administrative Agent shall not be required to, and shall not, return any such funds to the extent doing so would result in the amount of such funds being less than the stated amount of all Extended Letters of Credit then outstanding.

(f)In connection with, and as a further condition to the issuance of, each Letter of Credit, Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Fronting Bank an application for the Letter of Credit in such form, and together with such other documents, opinions and assurances, as the Fronting Bank shall reasonably require.

65


(g)In connection with each Letter of Credit, Borrower hereby covenants to pay (i) to Administrative Agent, quarterly in arrears (on the first Banking Day of each calendar quarter following the issuance of such Letter of Credit), a fee, payable to Administrative Agent for the account of the Ratable Loan Banks, computed daily (calculated on the basis of a year of three hundred and sixty (360) days for the actual number of days elapsed) on the face amount of such Letter of Credit issued and outstanding at a rate per annum equal to the “Banks’ L/C Fee Rate” (as hereinafter defined) and (ii) to the Fronting Bank, payable quarterly in arrears, a fee, payable to the Fronting Bank for its own account, computed daily (calculated on the basis of a year of three hundred and sixty (360) days for the actual number of days elapsed) as mutually agreed between Borrower and such Fronting Bank.  Administrative Agent shall have no responsibility for the collection of the fee for any Letter of Credit that is payable to the Fronting Bank. For purposes of this Agreement, the “Banks’ L/C Fee Rate” shall mean, provided no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, a rate per annum (calculated on the basis of a year of three hundred and sixty (360) days for the actual number of days elapsed) equal to the Applicable Margin for Ratable Loans that are LIBORTerm SOFR Loans minus 0.125% and, in the event an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, a rate per annum (calculated on the basis of a year of three hundred and sixty (360) days for the actual number of days elapsed) equal to 2%. It is understood and agreed that the last installment of the fees provided for in this paragraph (g) with respect to any particular Letter of Credit shall be due and payable on the first day of the calendar quarter following the surrender or cancellation, of such Letter of Credit.

(h)The Fronting Bank shall promptly notify Administrative Agent of any drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by such Fronting Bank. The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that, immediately upon notice from Administrative Agent of any drawing under a Letter of Credit, each Ratable Loan Bank shall, notwithstanding the existence of a Default or Event of Default or the non-satisfaction of any conditions precedent to the making of an advance of the Loans, advance proceeds of its Ratable Loan, in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of such drawing, which advance shall be made to Administrative Agent for disbursement to the Fronting Bank issuing such Letter of Credit to reimburse the Fronting Bank, for its own account, for such drawing, all in satisfaction of Borrower’s obligation to reimburse such drawing. Each of the Ratable Loan Banks further acknowledges that its obligation to fund its Pro Rata Share of drawings under Letters of Credit as aforesaid shall survive the Ratable Loan Banks’ termination of this Agreement or enforcement of remedies hereunder or under the other Loan Documents. If any Ratable Loan cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required above (including, without limitation, as a result of the commencement of a proceeding under any applicable bankruptcy law with respect to Borrower), then Borrower shall immediately reimburse such drawing by paying to Administrative Agent the amount of such drawing and each of the Ratable Loan Banks shall purchase (on the date such Ratable Loan would otherwise have been made) from the Fronting Bank a participation interest in any unreimbursed drawing in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of such unreimbursed drawing.  Promptly following any change in Letters of Credit outstanding, the applicable Fronting Bank shall deliver to Administrative Agent, which shall promptly deliver the same to each Ratable Loan Bank and Borrower, a notice describing the aggregate amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time.  Upon the request of any Ratable Loan Bank from time to time, such Fronting Bank shall deliver any other information reasonably requested by such Ratable Loan Bank with respect to each Letter of Credit then outstanding.  Other than as set forth in this subsection, no Fronting Bank shall have any duty to notify the Ratable Loan Banks regarding the issuance or other matters regarding Letters of Credit issued hereunder.  The failure of any Fronting Bank to perform its requirements under this subsection shall not relieve any Ratable Loan Bank from its obligations under this subsection (h).

(i)Borrower agrees (a), upon and during the occurrence of an Event of Default and within one (1) Banking Day following the written request of Administrative Agent or the Required Ratable Loan Banks (or automatically upon an Event of Default under Section 9.01(5)) and (b) as required by Section 2.17(e) with respect to Extended Letters of Credit, (x) to deposit with Administrative Agent cash collateral in the amount of all the outstanding Letters of Credit (“Cash Collateral”), which Cash Collateral is hereby pledged

66


and shall be held by Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Ratable Loan Banks and the Fronting Banks in an account as security for Borrower’s obligations in connection with the Letters of Credit and (y) to execute and deliver to Administrative Agent such documents as Administrative Agent requests to confirm and perfect the assignment of such Cash Collateral and such account to Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Ratable Loan Banks.  In addition, at any time that there shall exist a Defaulting Lender, within one (1) Banking Day upon the written request of Administrative Agent or any Fronting Bank that has issued a Letter of Credit, Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to cover all Fronting Exposure (after giving effect to Section 12.20(d) and any Cash Collateral provided by such Defaulting Lender). All Cash Collateral (other than credit support not constituting funds subject to deposit) shall be maintained in blocked, interest bearing deposit accounts at Administrative Agent.  Borrower, and to the extent provided by any Bank, such Bank, hereby grants to (and subjects to the control of) Administrative Agent, for the benefit of Administrative Agent, the Fronting Bank and the Banks, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein, and all other property so provided as collateral pursuant hereto, and in all proceeds of the foregoing, all as security for the obligations to which such Cash Collateral may be applied as set forth below. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided hereunder in respect of Letters of Credit shall be held and applied to the satisfaction of the specific L/C Obligations for which the Cash Collateral was so provided. Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce Fronting Exposure or other obligations shall be released promptly following (i) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure or other obligations giving rise thereto (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Bank) or (ii) Administrative Agent’s good faith determination that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided, however, that such Cash Collateral furnished by Borrower to reduce Fronting Exposure shall not be released if Borrower is required to deposit Cash Collateral in accordance with the first sentence of this Section 2.17(i).

(j)Intentionally Omitted.

(k)A Fronting Bank may be replaced at any time by written agreement in a form reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent among Borrower, Administrative Agent, the replaced Fronting Bank and the successor Fronting Bank.  In addition, Borrower, by written agreement in a form reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent among Borrower, Administrative Agent and a Ratable Loan Bank delivered to Administrative Agent, may designate such Ratable Loan Bank as an additional Fronting Bank with such Letter of Credit Commitment as may be agreed on between such Ratable Loan Bank and Borrower provided that the sum of (x) all Letter of Credit Commitments plus (y) the aggregate undrawn amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit at such time plus (z) the aggregate amount of all drawings under Letters of Credit that have not yet been reimbursed by or on behalf of Borrower (including, for clarity, by means of advances of Loans pursuant to this Agreement) shall not exceed $150,000,000 (and the Letter of Credit Commitment of each other Fronting Bank shall be reduced pro rata by the amount of the additional Fronting Bank’s Letter of Credit Commitment).  Administrative Agent shall notify the Ratable Loan Banks of any such replacement of the Fronting Bank and any additional Fronting Bank.  At the time any such replacement of a Fronting Bank shall become effective, Borrower shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Fronting Bank pursuant to Section 2.17(g).  From and after the effective date of any such replacement or addition of a Fronting Bank, (x) the successor or additional (as applicable) Fronting Bank shall have all the rights and obligations of a Fronting Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter and (y) references herein to the term “Fronting Bank” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or additional Fronting Bank, or to any previous Fronting Bank, or to such successor or additional, and all previous, Fronting Banks and all other Fronting Banks, as the context shall require.  After the replacement of a Fronting Bank hereunder, the replaced Fronting Bank shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Fronting Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such replacement, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.  Subject to the appointment and acceptance by Administrative Agent

67


and Borrower of a successor Fronting Bank, any Fronting Bank may resign as a Fronting Bank at any time upon thirty days’ prior written notice to Administrative Agent, Borrower and the Ratable Loan Banks, in which case, such Fronting Bank shall be replaced as provided above.

(l)Borrower’s obligation to reimburse drawings under Letters of Credit as provided in paragraph (h) of this Section shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by the Fronting Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, or (iv) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, Borrower’s obligations hereunder.  Neither Administrative Agent, the Ratable Loan Banks nor the Fronting Bank shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of the Fronting Bank; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse the Fronting Bank from liability to Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by Borrower that are caused by the Fronting Bank’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof.  The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or wilful misconduct on the part of the Fronting Bank (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), the Fronting Bank shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination.  In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, the Fronting Bank may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.

(m)No Fronting Bank shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if:  (a) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such Fronting Bank from issuing the Letter of Credit, or any law applicable to such Fronting Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such Fronting Bank shall prohibit, or request that such Fronting Bank refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such Fronting Bank with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which such Fronting Bank is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon such Fronting Bank any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing Date and which such Fronting Bank in good faith deems material to it; or (b) the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such Fronting Bank applicable to letters of credit generally.

SECTION 2.18.  [Reserved].

68


SECTION 2.19.  Funds Transfer Disbursements.  Borrower hereby authorizes Administrative Agent to disburse the proceeds of any Loan made by the Banks or any of their Affiliates pursuant to the Loan Documents as requested by an authorized representative of Borrower to any of the accounts designated in the Disbursement Instruction Agreement.

SECTION 2.20.  Permitted Extension Amendments.

(a)Borrower may (i) with respect to any requested extension of any of the Term Loans, at any time or from time to time not more than one hundred twenty (120) days and not less than thirty (30) days prior to any anniversary of the Closing Date and (ii) in the case of any requested extension of the Ratable Loan Maturity Date, not more than one hundred twenty (120) days and not less than thirty (30) days prior to the then-current Ratable Loan Maturity Date, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii), by notice to Administrative Agent (who shall promptly notify the Banks under the applicable tranche), request that each Term A-1 Bank, Term A-2 Bank, and/or each Ratable Loan Bank extend (each such date on which an extension occurs, a “Requested Extension Date”) such Bank’s Maturity Date applicable to such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitment to the date that is one year after the applicable Maturity Date (or, if such one year anniversary date is not a Banking Day, the immediately preceding Banking Day) for such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitment then in effect for such Bank (the “Existing Maturity Date”), subject to the terms and conditions contained in such request which may include (i) an increase in the interest rate or other fees applicable solely with respect to the Loans and/or Loan Commitments in respect of which such extension is made to apply on and after the Requested Extension Date and (ii) the inclusion of additional fees to be payable to the Extending Lenders (as defined below) in connection with such extension (including any upfront fees).

(b)Each Bank under the applicable class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments, acting in its sole and individual discretion, shall, by notice to Administrative Agent given not later than the date that is fifteen (15) days after the date on which Administrative Agent received Borrower’s extension request (the “Lender Notice Date”), advise Administrative Agent whether or not such Bank agrees to such extension under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments (each Bank that determines to so extend its applicable Maturity Date under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments, an “Extending Lender”).  Each Bank that determines not to so extend its applicable Maturity Date under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments (a “Non-Extending Lender”) shall notify Administrative Agent of such fact promptly after such determination (but in any event no later than the Lender Notice Date), and any Bank under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments that does not so advise Administrative Agent on or before the Lender Notice Date shall be deemed to be a Non-Extending Lender.  The election of any Bank under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments to agree to such extension shall not obligate any other Bank under the same class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments to so agree, and it is understood and agreed that no Bank shall have any obligation whatsoever to agree to any request made by Borrower for extension of the applicable Maturity Date.

(c)Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Borrower of each Bank’s determination under this Section.

(d)Borrower shall have the right, but shall not be obligated, on or before the applicable Maturity Date for any Non-Extending Lender to replace such Non-Extending Lender with, and add as “Ratable Loan Banks”, “Term A-1 Banks”, and/or “Term A-2 Banks”, as the case may be, under this Agreement in place thereof, one or more financial institutions under the applicable class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments (each, an “Additional Lender”) approved by Administrative Agent and the Fronting Banks in accordance with the procedures provided in Section 3.07, each of which Additional Lenders shall have entered into an Assignment and Assumption Agreement (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 12.05, with Borrower obligated to pay any applicable processing or

69


recordation fee) with such Non-Extending Lender, pursuant to which such Additional Lenders shall, effective on or before the applicable Maturity Date for such Non-Extending Lender, assume Ratable Loan Commitments, Term A-1 Loans and/or Term A-2 Loans, as the case may be (and, if any such Additional Lender is already a Bank, its Ratable Loan Commitment, Term A-1 Loans and/or Term A-2 Loans, as applicable, shall be in addition to such Bank’s Ratable Loan Commitment, Term A-1 Loans and/or Term A-2 Loans, as applicable, hereunder on such date).  Prior to any Non-Extending Lender being replaced by one or more Additional Lenders pursuant hereto, such Non-Extending Lender may elect, in its sole discretion, by giving irrevocable notice thereof to Administrative Agent and Borrower (which notice shall set forth such Bank’s new applicable Maturity Date), to become an Extending Lender.  Administrative Agent may effect such amendments to this Agreement as are reasonably necessary to provide for any such extensions with the consent of Borrower but without the consent of any other Banks.

(e)If (and only if) (x) with respect to the Ratable Loan Commitments, the total of the Ratable Loan Commitments of the Ratable Loan Banks that have agreed to extend their Ratable Loan Maturity Date and the new or increased Ratable Loan Commitments of any Additional Lenders is more than 50% of the aggregate amount of the Ratable Loan Commitments in effect immediately prior to the applicable Requested Extension Date, (y) with respect to the Term A-1 Loans, the total of the outstanding Term A-1 Loans of the Term A-1 Banks that have agreed to extend their Term A-1 Loan Maturity Date and the assumed Term A-1 Loans of any Additional Lenders is more than 50% of the aggregate amount of the Term A-1 Loans outstanding immediately prior to the applicable Requested Extension Date, or (z) with respect to the Term A-2 Loans, the total of the outstanding Term A-2 Loans of the Term A-2 Banks that have agreed to extend their Term A-2 Loan Maturity Date and the assumed Term A-2 Loans of any Additional Lenders is more than 50% of the aggregate amount of the Term A-2 Loans outstanding immediately prior to the applicable Requested Extension Date then, in each case, effective as of the applicable Requested Extension Date, the applicable Maturity Date of each Extending Lender under the applicable class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments and of each Additional Lender shall be extended to the date that is one year after the Existing Maturity Date for such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments (except that, if such date is not a Banking Day, such Maturity Date as so extended shall be the next preceding Banking Day) and each Additional Lender shall thereupon become a “Ratable Loan Bank”, “Term A-1 Bank”, and/or “Term A-2 Bank”, as applicable, for all purposes of this Agreement and shall be bound by the provisions of this Agreement as a Bank under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments hereunder and shall have the obligations of a Bank under such class of Loans and/or Loan Commitments hereunder.  For purposes of clarity, it is acknowledged and agreed that (x) from and after the six-month anniversary of the Closing Date, the Term A-1 Loan Maturity Date on any date of determination shall not be a date more than five (5) years after such date of determination and (y) the Term A-2 Loan Maturity Date on any date of determination shall not be a date more than seven (7) years after such date of determination, whether such determination is made before or after giving effect to any extension request made hereunder.

(f)Notwithstanding the foregoing, any extension of any Maturity Date pursuant to this Section 2.20 shall not be effective with respect to any Extending Lender unless:

(i)no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the applicable Requested Extension Date and immediately after giving effect thereto;

(ii)the representations and warranties of Borrower and each other Loan Party contained in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct in all material respects on and as of the applicable Requested Extension Date (except in those cases where such representation or warranty expressly relates to an earlier date or is qualified as to “materiality”, “Material Adverse Change” or similar language (which shall be true and correct in all respects as qualified therein) and except for changes in factual circumstances permitted hereunder); and

70


(iii)Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate dated as of the applicable Requested Extension Date from Borrower (A) certifying the accuracy of the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii) and (B) certifying and attaching the resolutions adopted by Borrower approving or consenting to such extension.

(g)On the applicable Maturity Date of each Non-Extending Lender, (i) with respect to any extension of the Ratable Loan Maturity Date, any Ratable Loan Commitment of each Non-Extending Lender shall automatically terminate and (ii) Borrower shall repay such Non-Extending Lender in accordance with Section 2.09 (and shall pay to such Non-Extending Lender all of the other Obligations owing to it under this Agreement) and after giving effect thereto shall prepay any Ratable Loans and/or Term Loans outstanding on such date (and pay any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.05) to the extent necessary to keep outstanding Loans under the applicable class of Loans ratable with any revised applicable percentages of the respective Banks under such class of Loans effective as of such date, and, with respect to the Ratable Loan Commitments, Administrative Agent shall administer any necessary reallocation of the Ratable Credit Exposures (without regard to any minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and/or pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement).

(h)This Section shall supersede any provisions in Sections 2.09, 10.14, 10.15, or 12.02 to the contrary.

ARTICLE III

YIELD PROTECTION; ILLEGALITY; ETC.

SECTION 3.01.  Additional Costs.  Borrower shall pay directly to each Bank or other Recipient from time to time on demand such amounts as such Bank or other Recipient may reasonably determine to be necessary to compensate it for any increased costs which such Bank or other Recipient determines are attributable to its making or maintaining a Loan, or its obligation to make or maintain a Loan, or its obligation to Convert a Loan hereunder, or any reduction in any amount receivable by such Bank or other Recipient hereunder in respect of its Loan(s) or such obligations (such increases in costs and reductions in amounts receivable being herein called “Additional Costs”), in each case resulting from any Regulatory Change which:

(1)subjects any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, and (B) Excluded Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or

(2)(other than to the extent the LIBOR Reserve Requirement is taken into account in determining the LIBOR Rate at the commencement of  the applicable Interest Period) imposes or modifies any reserve, special deposit, liquidity, deposit insurance or assessment, minimum capital, capital ratio or similar requirements relating to any extensions of credit or other assets of, or any deposits with or other liabilities of, such Bank (including any Loan or any deposits referred to in the definition of “LIBOR Interest Rate”pursuant to regulations issued from time to time by the FRB for determining the maximum reserve requirement (including any emergency, special, supplemental or other marginal reserve requirement) with respect to eurocurrency funding (currently referred to as “Eurocurrency liabilities” in Regulation D of the FRB, as amended and in effect from time to time)), or any commitment of such Bank (including such Bank’s Loan Commitment hereunder); or

(3)imposes any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or the Notes (or any of such extensions of credit or liabilities).

71


Without limiting the effect of the provisions of the first paragraph of this Section, in the event that, by reason of any Regulatory Change, any Bank becomes subject to restrictions on the amount of such a category of liabilities or assets which it may hold, then, if such Bank so elects by notice to Borrower (with a copy to Administrative Agent), the obligation of such Bank to permit Elections of, to Continue, or to Convert Base Rate Loans into, LIBORTerm SOFR Loans or Daily SOFR Loans shall be suspended (in which case the provisions of Section 3.04 shall be applicable) until such Regulatory Change ceases to be in effect.

The obligations of Borrower under this Section shall survive the repayment of all amounts due under or in connection with any of the Loan Documents and the termination of the Loan Commitments in respect of the period prior to such termination.

Determinations and allocations by a Bank for purposes of this Section of the effect of any Regulatory Change pursuant to the first or second paragraph of this Section, on its costs or rate of return of making or maintaining its Loan or portions thereof or on amounts receivable by it in respect of its Loan or portions thereof, and the amounts required to compensate such Bank under this Section, shall be included in a calculation of such amounts given to Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article III to the contrary, Borrower shall only be obligated to pay any amounts due under this Section 3.01 or under Section 3.06 if, and a Bank shall not exercise any right under this Section 3.01 or Sections 3.02, 3.03, 3.04 or 3.06 unless, the applicable Bank is generally imposing a similar charge on, or otherwise similarly enforcing its agreements with, its other similarly situated borrowers. In addition, Borrower shall not be obligated to compensate any Bank under any such provision for any amounts attributable to any period which is more than 180 days prior to such Bank’s delivery of notice thereof to Borrower (except that if a Regulatory Change is retroactive, then such period shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect, provided that such Bank delivered notice thereof to Borrower no later than 180 days after the date on which the Regulatory Change with such retroactive effect was made).

For purposes of this Section 3.01, the term “Bank” includes any Fronting Bank.

SECTION 3.02.   Alternate Rate of Interest[Reserved].

(i)  Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, unless and until a Replacement Rate is implemented in accordance with clause (ii) below, if, on or prior to the determination of the LIBOR Base Rate for any Interest Period:

(a) Administrative Agent shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that reasonable and adequate means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR Base Rate for such Interest Period;

(b) Administrative Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that quotations of interest rates for the relevant deposits referred to in the definition of the LIBOR Base Rate are not being provided in the relevant amounts or for the relevant maturities for purposes of determining rates of interest for LIBOR Loans as provided herein; or

(c) Administrative Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that the relevant rates of interest referred to in the definition of the LIBOR Base Rate upon the basis of which the rate of interest for LIBOR Loans for such Interest Period is

72


to be determined are not likely to adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Banks of making or maintaining LIBOR Loans for such Interest Period;

then Administrative Agent shall give Borrower and each Bank prompt notice thereof and, so long as such condition remains in effect, Banks shall be under no obligation to, and shall not, make additional LIBOR Loans, Continue LIBOR Loans or Convert Loans into LIBOR Loans and Borrower shall, on the last day of each current Interest Period for each outstanding LIBOR Loan, either prepay such Loan or Convert such Loan into a Base Rate Loan.

(ii)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 3.02(i) above, if Administrative Agent or Required Banks have made the determination (such determination to be conclusive absent manifest error) that (a) the circumstances described in Section 3.02(i)(a) or (i)(b) have arisen and that such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (b) any applicable interest rate specified herein is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in Dollars in the U.S. syndicated loan market or (c) the applicable supervisor or administrator (if any) of any applicable interest rate specified herein or any Governmental Authority having or purporting to have jurisdiction over Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which any applicable interest rate specified herein shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans in Dollars in the U.S. syndicated loan market, then Administrative Agent may, to the extent practicable (in consultation with Borrower and as determined by Administrative Agent to be generally in accordance with similar situations in other transactions in which it is serving as administrative agent or otherwise consistent with market practice generally), establish a replacement interest rate (the “Replacement Rate”), in which case, the Replacement Rate shall, subject to the next two sentences, replace such applicable interest rate for all purposes under the Loan Documents unless and until (A) an event described in Section 3.02(i)(a) or (i)(b), 3.02(ii)(a), 3.02(ii)(b) or 3.02(ii)(c) occurs with respect to the Replacement Rate or (B) Administrative Agent (or Required Banks through Administrative Agent) notifies Borrower that the Replacement Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Banks of funding the Loans bearing interest at the Replacement Rate.  In connection with the establishment and application of the Replacement Rate, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be amended solely with the consent of Administrative Agent and Borrower, as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 3.02(ii).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents (including, without limitation, Section 12.02), such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Banking Days of the delivery of such amendment to Banks, written notices from such Banks that in the aggregate constitute Required Banks, with each such notice stating that such Bank objects to such amendment.  To the extent the Replacement Rate is approved by Administrative Agent in connection with this clause (ii), the Replacement Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice, provided that, in each case, to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for Administrative Agent, such Replacement Rate shall be applied as otherwise reasonably determined by Administrative Agent (it being understood that any such modification by Administrative Agent shall not require the consent of, or consultation with, any of the Banks).

SECTION 3.03.  Illegality.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, in the event that it becomes unlawful for any Bank or its Applicable Lending Office to honor its obligation to make or

73


maintain a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, Daily SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan hereunder, to allow Elections or Continuations of a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or to Convert a Base Rate Loan into a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, then such Bank shall promptly notify Administrative Agent and Borrower thereof and such Bank’s obligation to make or maintain a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, Daily SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan, or to permit Elections of, to Continue, or to Convert its Base Rate Loan into, a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan shall be suspended (in which case the provisions of Section 3.04 shall be applicable) until such time as such Bank may again make and maintain a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, Daily SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan.

SECTION 3.04.  Treatment of Affected Loans.  If the obligations of any Bank to make or maintain a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, Daily SOFR Loan or a Bid Rate Loan, or to permit an Election of a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, to Continue its LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, or to Convert its Base Rate Loan or Daily SOFR Loan into a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, are suspended pursuant to Section 3.01 or 3.03 (each LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, Daily SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan so affected being herein called an “Affected Loan”), such Bank’s Affected Loan shall be automatically Converted into a Base Rate Loan (or, in the case of an Affected Loan that is a Bid Rate Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, the interest rate thereon shall be converted to the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans) on the last day of the then current Interest Period for the Affected Loan (or, in the case of a Conversion or conversion resulting from Section 3.03, on such earlier date as such Bank may specify to Borrower).

To the extent that such Bank’s Affected Loan has been so Converted (or the interest rate thereon so converted), all payments and prepayments of principal which would otherwise be applied to such Bank’s Affected Loan shall be applied instead to its Base Rate Loan (or to its Bid Rate Loan or Daily SOFR Loan bearing interest at the converted rate) and such Bank shall have no obligation to Convert its Base Rate Loan into a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan.

SECTION 3.05.  Certain Compensation.  Other than in connection with a Conversion of an Affected Loan, Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Bank, upon the request of such Bank through Administrative Agent which request includes a calculation of the amount(s) due, such amount or amounts as shall be sufficient (in the reasonable opinion of such Bank) to compensate it for any loss, cost or expense which such Bank reasonably determines is attributable to:

(1)any payment or prepayment of a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan made by such Bank, or any Conversion of a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan (or conversion of the rate of interest on a Bid Rate Loan) made by such Bank, in any such case on a date other than the last day of an applicable Interest Period, whether by reason of acceleration or otherwise;

(2)any failure by Borrower for any reason to Convert a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or a Base Rate Loan or to Continue a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, as the case may be, to be Converted or Continued by such Bank on the date specified therefor in the relevant notice under Section 2.14;

(3)any failure by Borrower to borrow (or to qualify for a borrowing of) a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan which would otherwise be made hereunder on the date specified in the relevant Election notice under Section 2.14 or Bid Rate Quote acceptance under Section 2.02(e) given or submitted by Borrower; or

(4)any failure by Borrower to prepay a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan on the date specified in a notice of prepayment.

74


Without limiting the foregoing, such compensation shall include an amount equal to the present value (using as the discount rate an interest rate equal to the rate determined under (2) below) of the excess, if any, of (1) the amount of interest (less the Applicable Margin) which otherwise would have accrued on the principal amount so paid, prepaid, Converted or Continued (or not Converted, Continued or borrowed) for the period from the date of such payment, prepayment, Conversion or Continuation (or failure to Convert, Continue or borrow) to the last day of the then current applicable Interest Period (or, in the case of a failure to Convert, Continue or borrow, to the last day of the applicable Interest Period which would have commenced on the date specified therefor in the relevant notice) at the applicable rate of interest for the LIBORTerm SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan provided for herein, over (2) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by such Bank) based upon the interest rate which such Bank would have bid in the London interbank market for Dollar deposits, for amounts comparable to such principal amount and maturities comparable to such period. A determination of any Bank as to the amounts payable pursuant to this Section shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

The obligations of Borrower under this Section shall survive the repayment of all amounts due under or in connection with any of the Loan Documents and the termination of the Loan Commitments in respect of the period prior to such termination.

SECTION 3.06.  Capital Adequacy.  If any Bank shall have determined that, after the date hereof, due to any Regulatory Change or the adoption of, or any change in, any applicable law, rule or regulation regarding capital adequacy or liquidity ratios or requirements, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or any request or directive regarding capital adequacy or liquidity requirements (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on capital of such Bank (or its Parent) as a consequence of such Bank’s obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Bank (or its Parent) could have achieved but for such adoption, change, request or directive (taking into consideration its policies with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity) by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, then from time to time, within fifteen (15) days after demand by such Bank (with a copy to Administrative Agent), Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank (or its Parent) for such reduction. A certificate of any Bank claiming compensation under this Section, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis therefor, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The obligations of Borrower under this Section shall survive the repayment of all amounts due under or in connection with any of the Loan Documents and the termination of the Loan Commitments in respect of the period prior to such termination.

SECTION 3.07.  Substitution of Banks.  If any Bank (an “Affected Bank”) (i) makes demand upon Borrower for (or if Borrower is otherwise required to pay) Additional Costs pursuant to Section 3.01, (ii) is unable to make or maintain a LIBORTerm SOFR Loan, Daily SOFR Loan or Bid Rate Loan as a result of a condition described in Section 3.03 or clause (b) of Section 3.02, (iii) has any increased costs as described in Section 3.06, (iv) requires Borrower to pay any Indemnified Taxes or other amounts to such Bank or any Governmental Authority pursuant to Section 10.13, or (v) becomes a Defaulting Lender or a Non-Consenting Bank, Borrower may, at Borrower’s sole expense and effort within ninety (90) days of receipt of such demand or notice of the occurrence of an event described above in this Section 3.07 (provided (A) such 90-day limit shall not be applicable for a Defaulting Lender and (B) such 90-day period shall be extended for an additional period of 60 days if Borrower shall have attempted during such 90-day period to secure a Replacement Bank (as defined below) and shall be diligently pursuing such attempt), give written notice (a “Replacement Notice”) to Administrative Agent and to each Bank of Borrower’s intention to replace the Affected Bank with another financial institution (the “Replacement Bank”) designated in such Replacement Notice; provided, that in the case of any assignment resulting from a Bank becoming a Non-Consenting Bank, the Replacement Bank shall have consented to the applicable consent,

75


approval, amendment or waiver; provided, further, that in the case of an Affected Bank that is not a Defaulting Lender or Non-Consenting Bank, if Borrower has been unable to obtain a Replacement Bank after using its commercially reasonable efforts to do so for a period of sixty (60) days, Borrower shall be permitted to prepay in full such Affected Bank’s Loans and to terminate such Affected Bank’s entire Loan Commitment so long as (A) no Default or Event of Default shall have ocurrred and be continuing at the time of such prepayment or immediately after giving effect thereto, (B) within thirty (30) days after its receipt of Borrower’s request therefor, such Affected Bank shall not have agreed to waive the payment of the Additional Costs, Indemnified Taxes or other amounts in question pursuant to Section 10.13 or the effect of the circumstances described in Section 3.03, in clause (b) of Section 3.02  or in Section 3.06 and (C) to the extent two or more Affected Banks are so prepaid and their Loan Commitments terminated, such Affected Banks’ aggregate Loan Commitments so terminated shall not exceed 5% of the total Loan Commitments before giving effect to such terminations, and such prepayments shall be made ratably in accordance with such Affected Banks’ respective Pro Rata Shares.

In the event Borrower shall elect to make a prepayment of an Affected Bank to the extent permitted in the final proviso of the preceding paragraph, then, so long as no Event of Default shall exist, Borrower may (notwithstanding the provisions of clause (2) of Section 2.16(a)) terminate the Affected Bank’s entire Loan Commitments, provided that in connection therewith it pays to the Affected Bank all outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Affected Bank’s Loans, together with all other amounts, if any, due from Borrower to the Affected Bank, including all amounts properly demanded and unreimbursed under Sections 3.01, 3.05 or 10.13. After any replacement or termination, an Affected Bank shall remain entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.01, 3.06, 10.13 and 12.04 in respect of the period prior to such termination.

In the event Borrower opts to give a Replacement Notice, and if Administrative Agent and, in the case of the replacement of a Ratable Loan Bank, each Fronting Bank and each Swingline Lender, shall promptly (and in any event, within thirty (30) days of its receipt of the Replacement Notice), notify Borrower and each Bank in writing that the Replacement Bank is reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent, then the Affected Bank shall, so long as no Event of Default shall exist, assign its Loans and all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to the Replacement Bank, and the Replacement Bank shall assume all of the Affected Bank’s rights and obligations, pursuant to an agreement, substantially in the form of an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, executed by the Affected Bank and the Replacement Bank. In connection with such assignment and assumption, the Replacement Bank shall pay to the Affected Bank an amount equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Affected Bank’s Loans plus all interest accrued thereon, plus all other amounts, if any (other than the Additional Costs in question), then due and payable to the Affected Bank; provided, however, that prior to or simultaneously with any such assignment and assumption, Borrower shall have paid to such Affected Bank all amounts properly demanded and unreimbursed under Sections 3.01, 3.05 and 10.13. Upon the effective date of such assignment and assumption, the Replacement Bank shall become a Bank party to this Agreement and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Bank as set forth in such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, and the Affected Bank shall be released from its obligations hereunder, and no further consent or action by any party shall be required. Upon the consummation of any assignment pursuant to this Section, Notes shall be issued to the Replacement Bank by Borrower in accordance with Section 2.09.  If the Replacement Bank is not incorporated under the laws of the United States of America or a state thereof, it shall, prior to the first date on which interest or fees are payable hereunder for its account, deliver to Borrower and Administrative Agent a certification as to exemption from deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes in accordance with Section 10.13. Each Replacement Bank shall be deemed to have made the representations contained in, and shall be bound by the provisions of, Section 10.13. After any assignment as provided in this paragraph, an Affected Bank shall remain entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.01, 3.06, 10.13 and 12.04 in respect of the period prior to such assignment.  The Affected Bank shall not be required

76


to make any assignment described in this Section if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Affected Bank or otherwise, the circumstances entitling Borrower to require such assignment cease to apply.

Borrower, Administrative Agent and the Banks shall execute such modifications to the Loan Documents as shall be reasonably required in connection with and to effectuate the foregoing.

SECTION 3.08.  Obligation of Banks to Mitigate.  Each Bank agrees that, as promptly as practicable after such Bank has actual knowledge of the occurrence of an event or the existence of a condition that would cause such Bank to become an Affected Bank or that would entitle such Bank to receive payments under Sections 3.01, 3.02, 3.03, 3.06 or 10.13, it will, to the extent not inconsistent with any applicable legal or regulatory restrictions, use reasonable efforts at the cost and expense of Borrower (i) to make, issue, fund, or maintain the Loan Commitment of such Bank or the affected Loans of such Bank through another lending office of such Bank, or (ii) to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates, if as a result thereof the circumstances that would cause such Bank to be an Affected Bank would cease to exist or the additional amounts that would otherwise be required to be paid to such Bank pursuant to Sections 3.01, 3.02, 3.03, 3.06 or 10.13 would be reduced and if, as reasonably determined by such Bank in its sole discretion, the making, issuing, funding, or maintaining of such Loan Commitment or Loans through such other lending office or in accordance with such other measures, as the case may be, would not otherwise adversely affect such Loan Commitment or Loans or would not be otherwise disadvantageous to the interests of such Bank.

SECTION 3.09.  Usury.  In no event shall the amount of interest due or payable on the Loans or other Obligations exceed the maximum rate of interest allowed by applicable Law and, if any such payment is paid by Borrower or any other Loan Party or received by any Bank, then such excess sum shall be credited as a payment of principal, unless Borrower shall notify the respective Bank in writing that Borrower elects to have such excess sum returned to it forthwith.  It is the express intent of the parties hereto that Borrower not pay and the Banks not receive, directly or indirectly, in any manner whatsoever, interest in excess of that which may be lawfully paid by Borrower under applicable Law.  The parties hereto hereby agree and stipulate that the only charge imposed upon Borrower for the use of money in connection with this Agreement is and shall be the interest specifically described in Section 2.07 and, with respect to Swingline Loans, in Section 2.03(c).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto further agree and stipulate that all agency fees, syndication fees, facility fees, closing fees, letter of credit fees, underwriting fees, default charges, late charges, funding or “breakage” charges, increased cost charges, attorneys’ fees and reimbursement for costs and expenses paid by Administrative Agent or any Bank to third parties or for damages incurred by Administrative Agent or any Bank, in each case in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, are charges made to compensate Administrative Agent or any such Bank for underwriting or administrative services and costs or losses performed or incurred, and to be performed or incurred, by Administrative Agent and the Banks in connection with this Agreement and shall under no circumstances be deemed to be charges for the use of money.  All charges other than charges for the use of money shall be fully earned and nonrefundable when due.

SECTION 3.10.Changed Circumstances.

(a)Circumstances Affecting Benchmark Availability.  Subject to clause (c) below, in connection with any request for a SOFR Loan or a conversion to or continuation thereof or otherwise, if for any reason (i) the Administrative Agent shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that reasonable and adequate means do not exist for ascertaining Term SOFR for the applicable Interest Period with respect to a proposed Term SOFR Loan on or prior to the first day of such Interest Period or the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate or (ii) the Required Banks shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that Term

77


SOFR or the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Banks of making or maintaining such Loans during such Interest Period, then, in each case, the Administrative Agent shall promptly give notice thereof to the Borrower and to each Bank.  Upon notice thereof by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower, any obligation of the Banks to make Term SOFR Loans or Daily SOFR Loans, as applicable, and any right of the Borrower to convert any Loan to or continue any Loan as a Term SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, as applicable, shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected SOFR Loans or the affected Interest Periods) until the Administrative Agent (with respect to clause (ii), at the instruction of the Required Banks) revokes such notice.  Upon receipt of such notice, (A) the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of SOFR Loans (to the extent of the affected SOFR Loans or the affected Interest Periods) or, failing that, the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a borrowing of or conversion to (x) Daily SOFR Loans so long as the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate is not the subject of clauses (i) or (ii) above, or (y) Base Rate Loans if the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate is the subject of clauses (i) or (ii) above, in each case, in the amount specified therein and (B) any outstanding affected Term SOFR Loans will be deemed to have been converted into (x) Daily SOFR Loans so long as the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate is not the subject of clauses (i) or (ii) above, or (y) Base Rate Loans if the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate is the subject of clauses (i) or (ii) above, in each case, at the end of the applicable Interest Period, or, in the case of any Daily SOFR Loan, immediately.  Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted, together with any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.05.

(b)Laws Affecting SOFR Availability.  If, after the date hereof, the introduction of, or any change in, any applicable Law or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any of the Banks (or any of their respective Applicable Lending Offices) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency, shall make it unlawful or impossible for any of the Banks (or any of their respective Applicable Lending Offices) to honor its obligations hereunder to make or maintain any SOFR Loan, or to determine or charge interest based upon SOFR, the Term SOFR Reference Rate, the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate, Adjusted Term SOFR or Term SOFR, such Bank shall promptly give notice thereof to the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly give notice to the Borrower and the other Banks.  Thereafter, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower that such circumstances no longer exist, (i) any obligation of the Banks to make Term SOFR Loans or Daily SOFR Loans, as applciable, and any right of the Borrower to convert any Loan to a Term SOFR Loan and/or Daily SOFR Loan, as applicable, or continue any Loan as a Term SOFR Loan or Daily SOFR Loan, as applicable, shall be suspended and (ii) if necessary to avoid such illegality, the Administrative Agent shall compute the Base Rate without reference to clause (c) of the definition of “Base Rate”, in each case until each such affected Bank notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist.  Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, upon demand from any Bank (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable, convert all SOFR Loans to (x) Daily SOFR Loans so long as SOFR and the Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate is not the subject of illegality, or (y) Base Rate Loans if SOFR or Adjusted Floating Overnight Daily SOFR Rate is the subject of illegality (in each case, if necessary to avoid such illegality, the Administrative Agent shall compute the Base Rate without reference to clause (c) of the definition of “Base Rate”), on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if all affected Banks may lawfully continue to maintain such affected SOFR Loans, to such day, or immediately, if any Bank may not lawfully continue to maintain such SOFR Loans to such day.  Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted, together with any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.05.

(c)Benchmark Replacement Setting.

78


(i)Benchmark Replacement.

(A)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may amend this Agreement to replace the then-current Benchmark with a Benchmark Replacement.  Any such amendment with respect to a Benchmark Transition Event will become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Banking Day after the Administrative Agent has posted such proposed amendment to all affected Banks and the Borrower so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such amendment from Banks comprising the Required Banks.  No replacement of a Benchmark with a Benchmark Replacement pursuant to this Section 3.10(c)(i)(A) will occur prior to the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date.

(B)No Derivatives Contract shall be deemed to be a “Loan Document” for purposes of this Section
