(iii)If a Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent any amount required of such Lender under Section 2.6(f)(ii), then the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent, to the extent the applicable Swingline Loan was funded by the Administrative Agent as a result of the failure of the Swingline Lender to fund the Swingline Loan pursuant to Section 2.6(f)(ii) (and solely the Administrative Agent in the event such Swingline Loan was funded entirely by the Administrative Agent), may recover such amount on demand: (A) from such Lender, together with interest at the Federal Funds Rate for the period commencing on the date such amount was due under Section 2.6(f)(ii) and ending on (but excluding) the date the Swingline Lender and/or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, recover such amount from such Lender; or (B) from each requesting Borrower by the designated time for repayment of such Swingline Loan, together with interest at the Reference Rate for the period commencing on the date such amount was due from the applicable Lender under Section 2.6(f)(ii) and ending on (but excluding) the date the Swingline Lender and/or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, shall recover such amount from such Borrower.

(d)Payment of Letter of Credit. In the event of any drawing under any Letter of Credit, the applicable Borrower agrees to reimburse (either with the proceeds of a Loan as provided for in this Section 2.9 or with funds from other sources), in same day funds, the Letter of Credit Issuer on each date on which the Letter of Credit Issuer notifies such Borrower of the date and amount of a draft paid under any Letter of Credit for the amount of such draft so paid and any amounts representing interest, costs, expenses or fees incurred by the Letter of Credit Issuer in connection with such payment.

Subject to receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent, each Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the amount disbursed by the Letter of Credit Issuer (1) on the Business Day on which the Letter of Credit Issuer honors any such draft on a Letter of Credit denominated in Dollars or incurs or is owed any such interest, costs, expenses or fees, if notice of such disbursement is delivered to the Lender prior to 1:00 p.m. New York City time (and if received after 1:00 p.m. on the next succeeding Business Day) and (2) within two (2) Business Days from the date that such Lender has received notice that the Letter of Credit Issuer has honored any draft on a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency or incurs or is owed any such interest, costs, expenses or fees. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers of any such disbursements made by the Lenders pursuant to the terms hereof; provided that the failure to give such notice will not affect the validity of the disbursement, and the Administrative Agent shall provide the Lenders with notice thereof.

The Administrative Agent and the Lenders may conclusively rely on the Letter of Credit Issuer as to the amount due the Letter of Credit Issuer by reason of any draft of a Letter of Credit or due the Letter of Credit Issuer under any Letter of Credit Application. The obligations of a Lender to make payments to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer, and, as applicable, the obligations of the applicable Borrower with respect to Borrowings, each under this Section 2.9(d) shall be irrevocable, shall not be subject to any qualification or exception whatsoever, and shall, irrespective of the satisfaction of the conditions to the making of any Loans described in Sections 2.1(b), 6.1, 6.2, and/or 6.3 and/or 6.4, as applicable, be honored in accordance with this Section 2.9(d) under all circumstances, including, without limitation, any of the following circumstances: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of such Letter of Credit, this Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents; (ii) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the obligations of the Borrower in respect of

Any such increase may be done in one or more requested increases, in $25,000,000 increments, or such lesser amount to be determined by the Administrative Agent (each such increase, shall be referred to herein as a “Facility Increase”).

(b)Effective Date. The effective date of any Facility Increase (the “Increase Effective Date”) shall be specified by the Borrowers in the applicable Facility Increase Request and shall be (unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Administrative Agent) no less than ten (10) Business Days after the date the Administrative Agent receives the applicable Facility Increase Request. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of the Increase Effective Date.

(c)Conditions to Effectiveness of Increase. The following are conditions precedent to such increase:

(ii)on or prior to the proposed date of such Facility Increase, the Borrowers shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the Facility Increase Fee for the benefit of the Lenders, with such fee payable to each Lender ratably based on its share of the Facility Increase;

(iii)if applicable, the Borrowers shall execute replacement Notes payable to the applicable Lenders reflecting the Facility Increase; and

(iv)as of the effective date of such increase and immediately after giving effect thereto, the representations and warranties set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects with the same force and effect as if made on and as of such date (except to the extent that such representations and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date); provided that if a representation or warranty is qualified as to materiality, with respect to such representation or warranty, the foregoing materiality qualifier shall be disregarded for the purposes of this condition;

(v)no Potential Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date on which the Facility Increase Request is delivered or immediately after giving effect to the Facility Increase;

(vi)with respect to any increase contemplated by clause (ii) of Section 2.15(a), on the Increase Effective Date, (x) an existing Lender or Lenders shall increase its Commitment to support any Facility Increase (in the sole discretion of each such Lender), or (y) one or more additional Lenders shall have joined the Credit Facility in accordance with Section 12.11(g) and, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate Commitments of such increasing and additional Lenders shall be at least equal to the amount of such Facility Increase; and

For the avoidance of doubt, any Facility Increase will be on the same terms as contained herein with respect to the Credit Facility. Except for the Committed Lenders with respect to the Committed Facility Amount when requested during the Committed Increase Period pursuant to clause (i) of Section 2.15(a), no Lender (including the Committed Lenders) will be required to commit, nor shall any Lender have any preemptive right to provide, any portion of any Facility Increase.

(d)Reallocation Following Facility Increase. On any Increase Effective Date with respect to any Facility Increase (whether pursuant to a new Lender joining the Credit

-62-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

Facility or an existing Lender increasing its Commitment), the Administrative Agent will reallocate the outstanding Loans and participations in Letters of Credit hereunder (including any Loans made by any new or increasing Lender pursuant to this Section 2.15) such that, after giving effect thereto, the ratio of each Lender’s (including each new or increasing Lender’s) share of outstanding Loans and participations in Letters of Credit to its share of Commitments is the same as that of each other Lender. For the avoidance of doubt, such reallocation may require the reallocation of Loans from an existing Lender to a new or increasing Lender. In connection with any such reallocation of the outstanding Loans, the (i) Administrative Agent will give advance notice sufficient to comply with the applicable timing period in Section 2.3 to each Lender which is required to fund any amount or receive any partial repayment in connection therewith and (ii) applicable Lender or Lenders will fund such amounts up to their respective shares of the Loans being reallocated and the Administrative Agent shall remit to any applicable Lenders its applicable portion of such funded amount if necessary to give effect to the reallocation of such Loans.

(a)as of the effective date of such extension and immediately after giving effect thereto, the representations and warranties set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects with the same force and effect as if made on and as of such date (except to the extent that such representations and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date); provided that if a representation or warranty is qualified as to materiality, with respect to such representation or warranty, the foregoing materiality qualifier shall be disregarded for the purposes of this condition;

(b)the Borrowers shall have paid an Extension Fee to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Lenders;

(c)no Potential Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date on which notice is given in accordance with the following clause (d) or on the initial Stated Maturity Date; and

3.PAYMENT OF OBLIGATIONS.

Revolving Credit Notes.

Any Lender may request that the Loans be evidenced by a promissory note. In such event, each Borrower shall execute and deliver a Note or Notes substantially in the form of Exhibit B (with blanks appropriately completed in conformity herewith), in favor of such Lender. Each Borrower agrees, from time to time, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, to reissue a new Note, in accordance with the terms and substantially in the form heretofore provided, to the Administrative Agent or such Lender, in renewal of and substitution for the Note previously issued by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent or such Lender, and such previously issued Note shall be returned to such Borrower marked “replaced”.

Payment of Obligations.

The Principal Obligations outstanding on the Maturity Date, together with all accrued but unpaid interest thereon and any other outstanding Obligations, shall be due and payable on the Maturity Date.

3.3Payment of Interest.

(a)Interest. Interest on each Borrowing and any portion thereof shall commence to accrue in accordance with the terms of this Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents as of the date of the disbursement or wire transfer of such Borrowing by the Administrative Agent, consistent with the provisions of Section 2.7, notwithstanding whether the applicable Borrower received the benefit of such Borrowing as of such date and even if such Borrowing is held in escrow pursuant to the terms of any escrow arrangement or agreement. When a Borrowing is disbursed by wire transfer pursuant to instructions received from the applicable Borrower in accordance with the related Request for Borrowing, then such Borrowing shall be considered made at the time of the transmission of the wire, rather than the time of receipt thereof by the receiving bank. With regard to the repayment of the Loans, interest shall continue to accrue on any amount repaid until such time as the repayment has been received in federal or other immediately available funds by the Administrative Agent in the Administrative Agent’s account described in Section 3.4, or any other account of the Administrative Agent which the Administrative Agent designates in writing to the applicable Borrower.

(b)Interest Payment Dates. Accrued and unpaid interest on the Obligations shall be due and payable in arrears (i) on each Interest Payment Date, (ii) on each other date of any reduction of the outstanding principal amount of the Loans hereunder, and (iii) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, at any time upon demand by the Administrative Agent. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law.

3.4Payments on the Obligations.

(a)Borrower Payments. All payments of principal of, and interest on, the Obligations under this Credit Agreement by any Borrower to or for the account of the Lenders, or any of them, shall be made without condition or deduction or counterclaim, set-off, defense or recoupment by the Borrowers for receipt by the Administrative Agent before 1:00 p.m. in the

case of payments made in Dollars and 10:00 a.m. in the case of payments made in an Alternative Currency, in each case, in federal or other immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent at account number 01104331628807 at Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, ABA No.: 121 000 248, account name “Agency Services Clearing Account”, reference “Owl Rock Technology Finance Corp.”, or any other account of the Administrative Agent that the Administrative Agent designates in writing to the Borrowers. Funds received after 1:00 p.m. in the case of payments made in Dollars or after 10:00 a.m. in the case of payments made in an Alternative Currency, as applicable, shall be treated for all purposes as having been received by the Administrative Agent on the first Business Day next following receipt of such funds. All payments shall be made in the currency of the related Borrowing.

(b)Lender Payments. Except as provided in Section 12.12, each Lender shall be entitled to receive its Pro Rata Share of each payment received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders on the Obligations. Each payment received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of a Lender shall be promptly distributed by the Administrative Agent to such Lender. The Administrative Agent and each Lender hereby agree that payments to the Administrative Agent by the Borrowers of principal of, and interest on, the Obligations by the Borrowers to or for the account of the Lenders in accordance with the terms of this Credit Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents shall constitute satisfaction of the Borrowers’ obligations with respect to any such payments, and the Administrative Agent shall indemnify, and each Lender shall hold harmless, the Borrowers from any claims asserted by any Lender in connection with the Administrative Agent’s duty to distribute and apportion such payments to the Lenders in accordance with this Section 3.4.

(c)Application of Payments. So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, all payments made on the Obligations shall be applied as directed by the Borrowers. At all times when an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, all payments made on the Obligations shall be credited, to the extent of the amount thereof, in the following manner: (i) first, against all costs, expenses and other fees (including attorneys’ fees) arising under the terms hereof; (ii) second, against the amount of interest accrued and unpaid on the Obligations as of the date of such payment; (iii) third, against all principal due and owing on the Obligations as of the date of such payment; and (iv) fourth, to all other amounts constituting any portion of the Obligations.

3.5Prepayments.

(a)Voluntary Prepayments. The Borrowers may, upon written notice to the Administrative Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Loans in whole or in part without premium, fees or penalty on any Business Day; provided that: (i) such notice must be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. (A) three (3) Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of LIBOR Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, (B) four (4) Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of LIBOR Rate Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency; and (C) one (1) Business Day prior to any date of prepayment of Reference Rate Loans; and (ii) any prepayment of Loans shall be in a principal amount of $500,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof (or the Dollar Equivalent thereof) or, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding. Each such notice shall specify the date (which shall be a Business Day) and amount of such prepayment. The Administrative Agent

-65-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

will promptly notify each Lender of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such prepayment. If such written notice is given by the Borrowers, the Borrowers shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein. Any prepayment of a Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest thereon, together with any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 4. Each such prepayment shall be applied to the Obligations held by each Lender in accordance with its respective Pro Rata Share.

(b)Mandatory Prepayment.

(i)Excess Loans Outstanding. If, on any day the Dollar Equivalent of the Principal Obligations exceeds the Available Commitment (including, without limitation, as a result of an Exclusion Event), then one or more Borrowers shall pay on the earlier of (i) demand by the Administrative Agent, or (ii) a Responsible Officer of a Borrower obtaining knowledge thereof, without further demand such excess to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders, in immediately available funds (except to the extent any such excess is addressed by Section 3.5(b)(ii)), by the Required Payment Time after such demand or knowledge. Following the occurrence and during the continuance of a Cash Control Event, each Borrower hereby agrees that the Administrative Agent may withdraw from any Collateral Account any Capital Contributions deposited therein and apply the same to the Principal Obligations or to the Obligations if such mandatory prepayment is pursuant to Section 3.5(b)(iii) until such time as the payment obligations of this Section 3.5(b) have been satisfied in full.

(ii)Excess Letters of Credit Outstanding. If any excess calculated pursuant to Section 3.5(b) is attributable to undrawn Letters of Credit, the Borrowers shall promptly Cash Collateralize such excess with the Administrative Agent pursuant to the terms of Section 2.9(h), as security for such portion of the Obligations. Unless otherwise required by Applicable Law, upon: (A) a change in circumstances such that the Dollar Equivalent of Principal Obligations no longer exceed the Available Commitment and no Event of Default or Potential Default has occurred and is continuing; or (B) the full and final payment of the Obligations and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit, the Administrative Agent shall return to the Borrowers any amounts remaining in said Cash Collateral Account.

(iii)Net Asset Value. If, after the Final Investor Close, the Net Asset Value of the Borrowers (other than Qualified Borrowers) is less than or equal to the outstanding Obligations, then, without further demand, one or more Borrowers shall pay the amount by which the sum of such Obligations exceeds the Net Asset Value to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders, in immediately available funds, by the Required Payment Time.

Reduction or Early Termination of Commitments.

So long as no Request for Borrowing or Request for Letter of Credit is outstanding that would result in a mandatory prepayment pursuant to Section 3.5(b), the Borrowers may terminate the Commitments, or reduce the Maximum Commitment, by giving prior irrevocable written notice to the Administrative Agent of such termination or reduction five (5) Business Days prior to the

-66-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

effective date of such termination or reduction (which date shall be specified by the Borrowers in such notice and shall be a Business Day): (a) (i) in the case of complete termination of the Commitments, upon prepayment of all of the outstanding Obligations, including, without limitation, all interest accrued thereon, in accordance with the terms of Section 3.3; or (ii) in the case of a reduction of the Maximum Commitment, upon prepayment of the amount by which the Dollar Equivalent of the Principal Obligations exceed the reduced Available Commitment resulting from such reduction, including, without limitation, payment of all interest accrued thereon, in accordance with the terms of Section 3.3, provided that, the Maximum Commitment may not be terminated or reduced such that, the Available Commitment would be less than the Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate stated amount of outstanding Letters of Credit; and (b) in the case of the complete termination of the Commitments, if any Letter of Credit Liability exists, upon payment to the Administrative Agent of the Cash Collateral for deposit in the Cash Collateral Account in accordance with Section 2.9(h), without presentment, demand, protest or any other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby waived. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (x) any reduction of the Maximum Commitment shall be in an amount equal to $5,000,000 or, if more, in multiples of $1,000,000; and (y) in no event shall a reduction by the Borrowers reduce the Maximum Commitment to $100,000,000 or less (except for a termination of all the Commitments). Promptly after receipt of any notice of reduction or termination, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the same. Any reduction of the Maximum Commitment shall reduce the Commitments of the Lenders according to their Pro Rata Share.

Lending Office.

Each Lender may: (a) designate its principal office or a branch, subsidiary or Affiliate of such Lender as its Lending Office (and the office to whose accounts payments are to be credited) for any Loan and (b) change its Lending Office from time to time by notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers. In such event, the Administrative Agent shall continue to hold the Note, if any, evidencing the Loans attributable to such Lender for the benefit and account of such branch, subsidiary or Affiliate. Each Lender shall be entitled to fund all or any portion of its Commitment in any manner it deems appropriate, consistent with the provisions of Section 2.5.

Joint and Several Liability.

Each Borrower acknowledges, agrees, represents and warrants the following:

(a)Inducement. The Lenders have been induced to make the Loans to, and the Letter of Credit Issuer has been induced to issue Letters of Credit for the account of, the Borrowers in part based upon the assurances by each Borrower that each Borrower desires that all Obligations under the Loan Documents be honored and enforced as separate obligations of each Borrower, should the Administrative Agent and the Lenders desire to do so.

(b)Combined Liability. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrowers shall be jointly and severally liable to the Lenders for all representations, warranties, covenants, obligations and indemnities, including, without limitation, the Loans and the other Obligations, and the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may at their option enforce the entire amount of the Loans, the Letters of Credit and the other Obligations against any one or more of the Borrowers.

-67-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

(c)Separate Exercise of Remedies. The Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) may exercise remedies against each Borrower and its property separately, whether or not the Administrative Agent exercises remedies against any other Borrower or its property. The Administrative Agent may enforce one or more Borrower’s obligations without enforcing any other Borrower’s obligations and vice versa. Any failure or inability of the Administrative Agent to enforce one or more Borrower’s obligations shall not in any way limit the Administrative Agent’s right to enforce the obligations of the other Borrowers. If the Administrative Agent forecloses or exercises similar remedies under any one or more Collateral Documents, then such foreclosure or similar remedy shall be deemed to reduce the balance of the Loans only to the extent of the cash proceeds actually realized by the Lenders from such foreclosure or similar remedy or, if applicable, the Administrative Agent’s credit bid at such sale, regardless of the effect of such foreclosure or similar remedy on the Loans secured by such Collateral Documents under the applicable state law.

(d)Qualified Borrowers. Notwithstanding anything herein or in any Loan Document to the contrary, (1)  this Section 3.8 and Article 5 shall not apply to Qualified Borrowers, (2) the Obligations of any Qualified Borrower hereunder shall be several and limited only to the Loans and Letters of Credit made or issued on its behalf, (3) all Loans and Letters of Credit provided to a Qualified Borrower hereunder shall be guaranteed only by the applicable Borrower in accordance with the applicable Qualified Borrower Guaranty, and (4) such Borrower shall be jointly and severally liable with such Qualified Borrower for the full amount of the Loans and Letters of Credit and other Obligations of such Qualified Borrower.  

4.CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES.

4.1Taxes.

(a)Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 4.1, the term “Lender” includes the Letter of Credit Issuer and the term “Applicable Law” includes FATCA.

(b)Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then (i) the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding, (ii) the applicable Withholding Agent shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, and (iii) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Borrower shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 4) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

(a)

-68-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

(c)Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrowers. The Borrowers shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

(d)Indemnification by the Borrowers. The Borrowers shall jointly and severally indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 4.1) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrowers by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(e)Indemnification by the Lenders. Without prejudice to, or duplication of, Section 11.7, each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (x) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that any Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers to do so), (y) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 12.11(e) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (z) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under this Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this Section 4.1(e).

(f)Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by a Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 4.1, such Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(g)Status of Lenders.

(i)Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested in writing by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested in writing by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at

a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested in writing by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested in writing by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements (including pursuant to the implementation of the OECD Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information in Tax Matters – The Common Reporting Standard and any implementing legislation or related guidance (“CRS”)). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 4.1(g)(ii)(A), 4.1(g)(ii)(B) and 4.1(g)(ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

(ii)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that a Borrower is a U.S. Person,

(A)any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to such Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Credit Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable written request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;

(B)any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested in writing by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Credit Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable written request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

(4)to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit O-2 or Exhibit O-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit O-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;

(C)any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested in writing by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Credit Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable written request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by Applicable Law to permit the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(D)if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to such Borrowers and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by Applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested in writing by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.

-71-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

Solely for purposes of this Section 4.1(g)(ii)(D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Closing Date.

Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered, expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.

(h)Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 4.1 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 4.1), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 4.1 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the written request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 4.1(h) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 4.1(h), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 4.1(h) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This Section 4.1(h) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(i)Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section 4.1 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.

Illegality.

If any Lender reasonably determines that any Applicable Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Loans or other Obligations, or materially restricts the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, the applicable currency or to determine or charge interest rates based upon LIBOR, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Borrowers through the Administrative Agent, any obligation of such Lender to make or continue Loans or the Obligations or to convert Loans accruing interest calculated by reference to the Reference Rate to be Loans calculated by reference to LIBOR or to convert Loans accruing interest calculated by reference to LIBOR to be Loans calculated by reference to the Reference Rate (where the Reference Rate is also calculated based off LIBOR in accordance with the definition thereof), shall be suspended until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon the prepayment of any such Loans, the Borrowers shall also pay accrued interest on

-72-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

the amount so prepaid. Each Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts to designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for such notice and will not, in the good faith judgment of such Lender, otherwise be materially disadvantageous to such Lender. During the pendency of any such period, Loans in Dollars shall accrue interest at the Reference Rate and Loans in an Alternative Currency shall bear interest at the applicable Cost of Funds Rate; provided, however, the Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrower Parties and the applicable Lender, may establish an alternative interest rate with respect to such Loans during the pendency of such period.

Inability to Determine Rates.

 

(a)If the Administrative Agent determines, for any proposed Interest Period, that: (a) deposits in Dollars are not being offered to banks in the applicable offshore market for the applicable amount and Interest Period of any LIBOR Rate Loan; (b) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining LIBOR; or (c) LIBOR does not adequately or fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding or maintaining any LIBOR Rate Loan, then: (i) the Administrative Agent shall forthwith notify the Lenders and the Borrowers; and (ii) while such circumstances exist, none of the Lenders shall allocate any Loans made during such period, or reallocate any Loans allocated to any then-existing Interest Period ending during such period, to an Interest Period with respect to which interest is calculated by reference to LIBOR. During the pendency of any such period, Loans in Dollars shall accrue interest at the Reference Rate and Loans in an Alternative Currency shall bear interest at the applicable Cost of Funds Rate; provided, however, the Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrower Parties and the applicable Lender, may establish an alternative interest rate with respect to such Loans during the pendency of such period.

(b)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Borrowers or Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the case of the Required Lenders, a copy to Borrower) that the Borrowers or Required Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that:

(i)adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for any requested Interest Period, because the LIBOR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or

(ii)the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR or the LIBOR Screen Rate shall no longer be made available, or used for determining the interest rate of loans (such specific date, the “Scheduled Unavailability Date”), or

(iii)syndicated loans in the United States currently being executed, or that include language similar to that contained in this Section, are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace LIBOR,

 

-73-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

then, reasonably promptly after such determination by the Administrative Agent or receipt by the Administrative Agent of such notice, as applicable,  the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers may amend this Agreement to replace LIBOR with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein), giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar Dollar denominated syndicated credit facilities for such alternative benchmarks (any such proposed rate, a “LIBOR Successor Rate”), together with any proposed LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 12.1, any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrowers unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Required Lenders do not accept such amendment. 

If no LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined and the circumstances under clause (i) above exist or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred (as applicable), the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrowers and each Lender.  Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain LIBOR Rate Loans shall be suspended, (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Rate Loans or Interest Periods), and (y) clause (iii) of the definition of “Reference Rate” shall no longer be utilized in determining the Reference Rate.  Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrowers may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing, Rollover or Conversion of LIBOR Rate Loans (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Rate Loans or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a Request for Borrowing of Reference Rate Loans (subject to the foregoing clause (y)) in the amount specified therein.

 

Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of LIBOR Successor Rate shall provide that in no event shall such LIBOR Successor Rate be less than zero (0) for purposes of this Credit Agreement.

4.4Increased Cost and Capital Adequacy.

(a)Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:

(i)impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or advances, loans or other credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement reflected in Adjusted LIBOR) or the Letter of Credit Issuer;

(ii)subject any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or

-74-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

(iii)impose on any Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Credit Agreement or Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender or such other Recipient of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan the interest of which is determined by reference to LIBOR (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan), or to increase the cost to such Lender, the Letter of Credit Issuer or such other Recipient of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender, the Letter of Credit Issuer or such other Recipient hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) , in each case, in an amount that the Lender deems material in its reasonable discretion, then, upon written request of such Lender, the Letter of Credit Issuer or other Recipient, the Borrowers shall promptly pay to any such Lender, the Letter of Credit Issuer or other Recipient, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered (provided, that such amounts shall be comparable to amounts that such Lender is generally charging other borrowers similarly situated to the applicable Borrower).

(b)Capital Requirements. If any Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer or any Lending Office of such Lender or such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Credit Agreement, the Commitment of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by the Letter of Credit Issuer, to a level below that which such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time upon written request of such Lender or such Letter of Credit Issuer, as applicable, the Borrowers shall promptly pay to such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(c)Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of a Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer setting forth in reasonable detail the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, as specified in Section 4.4(a) or Section 4.4(b) and delivered to the Borrowers, shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error. The Borrowers shall pay such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate by the Required Payment Time.

-75-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

(d)Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 4 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to this Section 4 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than nine (9) months prior to the date that such Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, notifies the Borrowers of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions, and of such Lender’s or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the nine-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).

Funding Losses.

Upon demand of any Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) from time to time, the Borrowers shall promptly pay the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender, such amount or amounts as shall compensate such Lender for, and hold such Lender harmless from, any loss, cost or expense incurred by such Lender in obtaining, liquidating or employing deposits or other funds from third parties as a result of (a) any failure or refusal of the Borrowers (for any reasons whatsoever other than a default by the Administrative Agent or any Lender) to accept a LIBOR Rate Loan after the Borrowers shall have requested such Loan under this Credit Agreement, (b) any prepayment or other payment of a LIBOR Rate Loan on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan, (c) any other prepayment of a Loan that is otherwise not made in compliance with the provisions of this Credit Agreement, or (d) the failure of the Borrowers to make a prepayment of a Loan after giving notice under this Credit Agreement, that such prepayment will be made; provided that the Borrowers shall not be responsible for any payment pursuant to this Section 4.5 with respect to any LIBOR Rate Loan based on Daily LIBOR.

Requests for Compensation.

If requested by the Borrowers in connection with any demand for payment pursuant to this Section 4 (other than Section 4.1), a Lender shall provide to the Borrowers, with a copy to the Administrative Agent, a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for such demand, the amount required to be paid by the Borrowers to such Lender and the computations made by such Lender to determine such amount, such certificate to be conclusive and binding in the absence of manifest error. Any such amount payable by the Borrowers shall not be duplicative of any amounts (a) previously paid under this Section 4, or (b) included in the calculation of LIBOR.

Survival.

Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrowers hereunder, all of the Borrowers’ obligations under this Section 4 shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Credit Agreement or any provision hereof. Each Lender shall notify the Borrowers of any event occurring after the termination of this Credit Agreement entitling such Lender to compensation under this Section 4 as promptly as practicable.

4.8Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

(a)Designation of a Different Lending Office. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 4.4, or requires the Borrowers to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 4.1, then such Lender shall, at the request of the Borrowers, use reasonable efforts to designate a different Lending Office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 4.4 or Section 4.1, as the case may be, in the future, and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrowers hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

(b)Replacement of Lenders. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 4.4, or if any Borrower is required to pay additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 4.1, and, in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different Lending Office in accordance with Section 4.8(a), or if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender or a Non-Consenting Lender, then the Borrowers may, at their sole expense and effort, so long as no Event of Default or Potential Default has occurred and is continuing, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in, and consents required by, Section 12.11), all of its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 4.4 or Section 4.1) and obligations under this Credit Agreement and the related Loan Documents to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which Assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that:

(i)the Borrowers shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the assignment fee (if any) specified in Section 12.11;

(ii)such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (including any amounts under this Section 4) from the Assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal) or the Borrowers (in the case of accrued interest, fees and all other amounts);

(iii)in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 4.4 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 4.1, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments thereafter;

(iv)such assignment does not conflict with Applicable Law; and

-77-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

(v)in the case of any assignment resulting from a Lender becoming a Non-Consenting Lender, the applicable Assignee shall have consented to the applicable amendment, waiver or consent.

A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrowers to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

Cash Collateral.

At any time that there shall exist a Defaulting Lender, by the Required Payment Time, the Borrowers shall Cash Collateralize the Fronting Exposure of the Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to such Defaulting Lender (determined after giving effect to Section 12.12(a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by such Defaulting Lender) in an amount not less than the Minimum Collateral Amount.

(a)Grant of Security Interest; Other Claims/Deficiency. (i) The Borrowers, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Letter of Credit Issuer, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such Cash Collateral as security for the Defaulting Lender’s obligation to fund participations in respect of the Letter of Credit Liability, to be applied pursuant to subsection (b) below. (ii) If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the Minimum Collateral Amount, the Borrowers will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (after giving effect to any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).

(b)Application. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Credit Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under this Section 4.9 or Section 12.12 in respect of Letters of Credit shall be applied to the satisfaction of the Defaulting Lender’s obligation to fund participations in respect of the Letter of Credit Liability (including, as to Cash Collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein.

(c)Termination of Requirement. Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce the Fronting Exposure of the Letter of Credit Issuer shall no longer be required to be held as Cash Collateral pursuant to this Section 4.9 following (i) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender), or (ii) the determination by the Administrative Agent and the Letter of Credit Issuer that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided that, subject to Section 12.12, the Person providing Cash Collateral and the Letter of Credit Issuer may agree that Cash Collateral shall be held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations; provided further that to the extent that such Cash Collateral was provided by the Borrowers, such Cash Collateral shall remain subject to the security interest granted pursuant to the Loan Documents.

5.SECURITY.

5.1Liens.

(a)Collateral. To secure performance by the Borrowers of the payment of the Obligations, the Borrowers, each to the extent of their respective interests therein, shall grant to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of each of the Secured Parties, a first priority, exclusive (except as expressly permitted pursuant to the definition of Permitted Liens), perfected security interest and Lien in and on the Collateral pursuant to the Security Agreements, the related financing statements and the other related documents.

(b)Reliance. The Borrowers agree that the Administrative Agent, each Lender and the Letter of Credit Issuer have entered into this Credit Agreement, extended credit hereunder and at the time of each Loan or each issuance of a Letter of Credit, will make such Loan or issue such Letter of Credit in reasonable reliance on the obligations of the Investors to fund their respective Capital Commitments as shown in their Subscription Agreements delivered in connection herewith and accordingly, it is the intent of the parties that such Capital Commitments may be enforced by the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders and other Secured Parties, pursuant to the terms of the Loan Documents, directly against the Investors without further action by the Borrowers, and notwithstanding any compromise of any such Capital Commitment by the Borrowers after the Closing Date.

The security agreements, financing statements, assignments, collateral assignments and any other documents and instruments from time to time executed and delivered pursuant to this Credit Agreement to grant, perfect and continue a Lien in the Collateral, including without limitation the Security Agreements, the Collateral Account Pledges and the Control Agreements, and any documents or instruments amending or supplementing the same, shall be collectively referred to herein as the “Collateral Documents.

5.2The Collateral Accounts; Drawdowns.

(a)The Collateral Accounts. In order to secure further the payment and the performance of the Obligations and to effect and facilitate the right of the Secured Parties each Borrower shall require that each of its Investors wire transfer to such Borrower’s Collateral Account all monies or sums paid or to be paid by such Investors pursuant to Drawdowns. In addition, each Borrower shall promptly deposit into its respective Collateral Account any payments and monies that such Borrower receives directly from Investors as Capital Contributions.

(b)Use of the Collateral Accounts. If a Cash Control Event has occurred and is continuing, the applicable Borrower may withdraw funds from its Collateral Account only in compliance with Section 9.15. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of a Cash Control Event, the Administrative Agent is authorized to take exclusive control of the Collateral Accounts. If the applicable Account Bank with respect to any Collateral Account ceases to be an Eligible Institution, each Borrower, as applicable, shall have sixty (60) days following notice from the Administrative Agent to move its Collateral Account to a replacement Account Bank that is an Eligible Institution. If an Account Bank terminates a Control Agreement, the applicable

-79-

USActive 51532649.853699586.5


 

Borrower shall open a new Collateral Account that is subject to a new Control Agreement with a replacement Account Bank within sixty (60) days of such termination or such longer period as may be reasonably approved by the Administrative Agent.

(c)No Duty. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, it is expressly understood and agreed that none of the Administrative Agent, Letter of Credit Issuer, nor any other Secured Party undertakes any duties, responsibilities, or liabilities with respect to the Drawdowns issued by the Borrowers. None of them shall be required to refer to the Constituent Documents of any Borrower or a Subscription Agreement, or take any other action with respect to any other matter that might arise in connection with the Constituent Documents of any Borrower, a Subscription Agreement or any Drawdown. None of them shall have any duty to determine or inquire into any happening or occurrence or any performance or failure of performance of any Borrower or any of the Investors. None of them shall have any duty to inquire into the use, purpose, or reasons for the making of any Drawdown by any Borrower or the Investment or use of the proceeds thereof.

(d)Drawdowns and Disbursements from Collateral Accounts. The Borrowers will issue Drawdowns at such times as are necessary in order to ensure the timely payment of the Obligations hereunder in accordance with their respective Constituent Documents. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the Secured Parties, acting through the Administrative Agent, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default, to charge from time to time the Collateral Accounts and the Cash Collateral Account, for amounts not paid when due (after the passage of any applicable grace period) to the Secured Parties or any of them hereunder and under the other Loan Documents; provided that promptly after any disbursement of funds from any such account to the Secured Parties, as contemplated in this Section 5.2(d), the Administrative Agent shall deliver a written notice of such disbursement to the applicable Borrower.

(e)No Representations. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any Secured Party shall be deemed to make at any time any representation or warranty as to the validity of any Drawdown nor shall the Administrative Agent or the Secured Parties be accountable for any Borrower Party’s use of the proceeds of any Capital Contribution.

Agreement to Deliver Additional Collateral Documents.

The Borrowers shall deliver such security agreements, financing statements, assignments, and other collateral documents (all of which shall be deemed part of the Collateral Documents), in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, as the Administrative Agent acting on behalf of the Secured Parties may reasonably request from time to time for the purpose of granting to, or maintaining or perfecting in favor of the Secured Parties, first priority security interests in the Collateral, together with other assurances of the enforceability and first priority of the Secured Parties’ Liens and assurances of due recording and documentation of the Collateral Documents or copies thereof, as the Administrative Agent may reasonably require to avoid material impairment of the first priority Liens and security interests granted or purported to be granted in accordance with this Section 5.

Subordination.

Except as expressly set forth herein, during the continuance of a Cash Control Event, no Borrower shall make any payments or advances of any

All Other Claims, together with all Liens on assets securing the payment of all or any portion of the Other Claims shall, except as set forth herein, at all times during the continuance of a Cash Control Event be subordinated to and junior in right and in payment to the Obligations and all Liens on assets securing all or any portion of the Obligations, and each Borrower agrees to take such actions as are reasonably necessary to provide for such subordination between it and any other Borrower, inter se, including but not limited to including provisions for such subordination in the documents evidencing the Other Claims. The Adviser acknowledges and agrees that at any time an Event of Default under Section 10.1(a), Section 10.1(h) or Section 10.1(i) has occurred and is continuing, the payment of any and all Management Fees or other fees due and owing to it from any Borrower shall be subordinated to and inferior in right and payment to the Obligations in all respects.
