RECITALS:

 

WHEREAS, reference is made to the Senior Secured Credit Agreement dated as of February 1, 2018 (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified to the date hereof, the “Credit Agreement”), by and among the Borrower, the lenders from time to time party thereto and the Administrative Agent;

 

WHEREAS, it is intended that (a) the Borrower will obtain the Incremental Commitments (as defined below) and (b) the proceeds of the borrowings under the Incremental Commitments will be used (i) by Borrower and its Subsidiaries as provided in the Credit Agreement and (ii) to pay fees and expenses incurred in connection with the foregoing (the transactions described in this paragraph, collectively, the “Transactions”);

 

WHEREAS, subject to the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, and pursuant to Section 2.12 of the Credit Agreement, the Borrower has requested that (a) the Lenders provide additional Commitments for Revolving Loans in an aggregate principal amount of $35,000,000 (the “Revolving Commitment Increase”) and (b) the Credit Agreement be amended in the manner provided for herein; and

 

WHEREAS, the Lenders are willing to provide the Incremental Commitments to the Borrower on the Incremental Amendment Effective Date (as defined below), and the parties hereto wish to amend the Credit Agreement on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein and in the Credit Agreement.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements herein contained and other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency and receipt of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.            Defined Terms; Interpretation; Etc. Capitalized terms used and not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Credit Agreement.

 

2.            Incremental Loans.

 

(a)       Each Lender hereby agrees to provide a Commitment to the Borrower to make Revolving Loans from and after the Incremental Amendment Effective Date in U.S.

 

 

Dollars in an aggregate principal amount equal to the amount set forth opposite such Lender’s name on Schedule I attached hereto (each, an “Incremental Commitment” and, collectively, the ” Incremental Commitments”), on the terms set forth herein and in the Credit Agreement (as amended hereby), and subject to the conditions set forth herein. The Incremental Commitments shall be deemed to be “Commitments” as defined in the Credit Agreement (as amended hereby) for all purposes of the Loan Documents having terms and provisions identical to those applicable to the Commitments outstanding immediately prior to the Incremental Amendment Effective Date (the “Existing Revolving Commitments”).

 

(b)       Each Lender (i) confirms that a copy of the Credit Agreement and the other applicable Loan Documents, together with copies of the financial statements referred to therein and such other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Amendment and make an Incremental Commitment, have been made available to such Lender; (ii) agrees that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or agent and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under the Credit Agreement or the other applicable Loan Documents, including this Amendment; and (iii) appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.

 

3.            Effective Date Reallocation.

The requirements under Section 10.5(b) of the Credit Agreement and requirements in respect of minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in the Credit Agreement shall not apply to the transactions effected pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.

This Amendment may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. This Amendment and the other Loan Documents constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. Except as provided in Section 5 hereof, this Amendment shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof that, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Amendment by facsimile or in electronic (i.e., “pdf” or “tif”) format shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.

11

 

(m)         Reference to and Effect on the Credit Agreement and the Other Loan Documents.

Except as specifically amended by this Amendment, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed and this Amendment shall not be considered a novation. The execution, delivery and performance of this Amendment shall not constitute a waiver of any provision of, or operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of the Administrative Agent or Lender under, the Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents.
