Any Notice of Borrowing or Borrowing Base Certificate received by the Administrative Agent, the Funding Agents and the Paying Agent after the time specified in the immediately preceding sentence shall be deemed to have been received by the Administrative Agent, the Funding Agents and the Paying Agent on the next Business Day, and to the extent that results in the proposed Funding Date being earlier than two (2) Business Days after the date of delivery of such Notice of Borrowing, then the date specified in such Notice of Borrowing as the proposed Funding Date of an Advance shall be deemed to be the Business Day immediately succeeding the proposed Funding Date of such Advance specified in such Notice of Borrowing. The proposed Funding Date specified in a Notice of Borrowing shall be no earlier than two (2) Business Days after the date of delivery of such Notice of Borrowing and may be up to a maximum of thirty (30) days after the date of delivery of such Notice of Borrowing. Unless otherwise provided herein, each Notice of Borrowing shall be irrevocable. The aggregate principal amount of the Class A Advance and Class B Advance requested by the Borrower for any Funding Date shall not be less than the lesser of (x) $1,000,000 and (y) the remaining amount necessary in order for the Borrower to fully utilize all available Commitments. If the Administrative Agent delivers a written notice (including by electronic mail) to the Borrower contesting the Borrower’s calculations or any statement within such Notice of Borrowing, it shall promptly inform the Borrower. The Borrower may then deliver an amended Notice of Borrowing to the Administrative Agent, the Funding Agents and the Paying Agent or, by written notice, rescind the Notice of Borrowing.
    (B)     The Notice of Borrowing shall specify (i) the aggregate amount of Class A Advances requested together with the allocated amount of Class A Advances to be paid by each Class A Lender Group based on its respective Class A Lender Group Percentage, (ii)(a) the aggregate amount of Class B-I Advances requested together with the allocated amount of Class B-I Advances to be paid by each Class B-I Lender Group based on its respective Class B-I Lender Group Percentage, or (b) the aggregate amount of Class B-II Advances requested together with the allocated amount of Class B-II Advances to be paid by each Class B-II Lender Group based on its respective Class B-II Lender Group Percentage and (iii) the Funding Date.

[***] = Certain information has been excluded from this exhibit because it is both not material and would likely cause harm to the company if publicly disclosed.


    (C)    With respect to the Advances to be made on the Original Closing Date, each Lender shall pay the amount of its Advance by wire transfer of such funds to the Borrower’s Account no later than 4:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the Original Closing Date.
(D)     With respect to the Advances to be made on any Funding Date, other than the initial Advance to be made on the Original Closing Date, upon a determination by the Administrative Agent that all conditions precedent to the Advances to be made on such Funding Date set forth in Article III have been satisfied or otherwise waived, each Lender shall fund the amount of its Advance by wire transfer of such funds in accordance with the Borrower’s written instructions initiated no later than 2:00 P.M. (New York City time) on such Funding Date.
    (E)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Non-Conduit Lender who shall have previously notified the Borrower in writing, in substantially the form of Exhibit H hereto, that it has incurred any external cost, fee or expense directly related to and as a result of the “liquidity coverage ratio” under Basel III in respect of its Commitment hereunder or any liquidity agreement between such Non-Conduit Lender and the Conduit Lender, or its interest in the Advances, such Non-Conduit Lender may, upon receipt of a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.4(A), notify the Borrower in writing by 5:00 P.M. (New York City time) two (2) Business Days prior to the Funding Date specified in such Notice of Borrowing, in substantially the form of Exhibit I hereto (a “Delayed Funding Notice”), of its intent to fund (or, if applicable and if such Conduit Lender so agrees in its sole discretion, have its Conduit Lender, if applicable, fund all or part of) its allocated amount of the related Advance in an amount that would, if combined with all other requested Advances within the past thirty-five (35) days, exceed $20,000,000 (such amount, the “Delayed Amount”) on a Business Day that is on or before the thirty-fifth (35th) day following the date of delivery of such Non-Conduit Lender of such Delayed Funding Notice (the “Delayed Funding Date”) rather than on the date specified in such Notice of Borrowing. If any Non-Conduit Lender provides a Delayed Funding Notice to the Borrower following the delivery by the Borrower of a Notice of Borrowing, the Borrower may revoke such Notice of Borrowing by delivering written notice of the same to the Administrative Agent and the Funding Agents by 12:00 P.M. (New York city time) on the Business Day preceding the related Funding Date. No Non-Conduit Lender that has provided a Delayed Funding Notice in respect of an Advance (a “Delayed Funding Lender”) shall be considered to be in default of its obligation to fund its Delayed Amount pursuant to Section 2.4(D) hereunder unless and until it has failed to fund the Delayed Amount on or before the Delayed Funding Date. A Delayed Funding Lender is not obliged to fund until thirty-five (35) days have elapsed since the funding request. For the avoidance of doubt, a Delayed Funding Lender shall be required to fund its Delayed Amount regardless of the occurrence of an Amortization Event, Event of Default, Potential Amortization Event or Potential Default which occurs during the period from and including the related Funding Date to and including the related Delayed Funding Date, unless such Amortization Event, Event of Default, Potential Amortization Event or Potential Default relates to an Insolvency Event with respect to the Borrower.
    (F)    If (i) one or more Delayed Funding Lenders provide a Delayed Funding Notice to the Borrower in respect of a Notice of Borrowing and (ii) the Borrower shall not have revoked the Notice of Borrowing prior to the Business Day preceding such Funding Date, the Administrative Agent shall, by no later than 12:00 P.M.

compensate such Affected Party for any portion of such additional amount or amounts that are incurred more than one hundred eighty (180) days prior to any such demand (except that, if the event giving rise to such additional amount or amounts is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
    (E)    Defaulting Lender. If any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, then the Borrower, at its sole expense may, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender subject to this Section 2.12(E) to assign and delegate, without recourse, all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement and under the Advances, and Commitments of the Lender being replaced hereunder to an assignee that shall assume all those rights and obligations; provided, however, that (x) such assignment shall not conflict with any law, rule or regulation or order of any court or other Governmental Authority having valid jurisdiction, (y) the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed and (z) the Borrower or such assignee shall have paid to the replaced Lender in immediately available funds an amount equal to the sum of the principal of and interest accrued to the date of such payment on the outstanding Advances of such Lender plus all fees and other amounts accrued for the account of such Lender hereunder with respect thereto.
    A Lender subject to this Section 2.12(E) shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if prior to any such assignment and delegation the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation have ceased to apply.
Each party hereto agrees that (a) an assignment required pursuant to this Section 2.12(E) may be effected pursuant to an assignment in substantially in the form of Exhibit F hereto executed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the assignee and (b) the Lender required to make such assignment need not be a party to such Assignment and Assumption in order for such assignment to be effective and shall be deemed to have consented to and be bound by the terms thereof; provided that, following the effectiveness of any such assignment, the other parties to such assignment agree to execute and deliver such documents necessary to evidence such assignment as reasonably requested by the applicable Lender, provided, further, that any such documents shall be without recourse to or warranty by the parties thereto.
The Administrative Agent and each Lender hereby agree to cooperate with the Borrower to effectuate the assignment of any Defaulting Lender’s interest hereunder.
    (F)    Calculation. In determining any amount provided for in this Section 2.12, the Affected Party may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods.

    Section 2.13.    Payments and Computations
. (A) The Borrower (through the Paying Agent pursuant to Section 2.7(B) and as otherwise permitted in this Agreement) shall make each payment and prepayment hereunder and under the Advances in respect of principal, interest, expenses, indemnities, fees or other Obligations due from the Borrower not later than 4:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the day when due in U.S. Dollars to the related Funding Agent at its address referred to in Section 10.3 or to such account provided by such Funding Agent in immediately available, same-day funds. Payments on Obligations may also be made by application of funds in the Collection Account or the Takeout Transaction Account as provided in Section 2.7(B), as applicable. All computations of interest for Advances shall be made by the related Funding Agent, who shall notify the Facility Administrator, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of any determination thereof on or prior to the payment thereof pursuant to Section 2.7(B), as applicable. All computations of interest for Advances made under the Base Rate shall be made by the applicable Funding Agent on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest is payable. All other computations of fees and interest provided hereunder shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest is payable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each determination by a Funding Agent of an interest rate hereunder shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent.
    (B)    All payments to be made in respect of fees, if any, due to the Administrative Agent from the Borrower hereunder shall be made on the date when due without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by the Borrower, and without setoff, counterclaim or other deduction of any nature (other than with respect to Taxes pursuant to Section 2.17), and an action therefor shall immediately accrue. The Borrower agrees that, to the extent there are insufficient funds in the Administrative Agent’s Account, to make any payment under this clause (B) when due, the Borrower shall immediately pay to the Administrative Agent all amounts due that remain unpaid.
    Section 2.14.    Payment on Non-Business Days
. Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Advances shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of payment of interest.
    Section 2.15.    Inability to Determine Rates
.     
    (A)    Subject to clauses (B), (C), (D), (E), (F) and (G) of this Section 2.15, if prior to the commencement of any Interest Accrual Period:
(i)the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBOR Rate (including because any screen rate necessary to determine such rate is not available or published on a current basis), for such Interest Accrual Period; provided that no Benchmark
-17-

Transition Event shall have occurred at such time with respect to the Adjusted LIBOR Rate; or
(ii)the Administrative Agent is advised by any Lender(s) that the Adjusted LIBOR Rate for such Interest Accrual Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender(s) of making or maintaining their Advances for such Interest Accrual Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders by telephone, telecopy or electronic mail as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, the interest rate applicable to the Advances that would otherwise be funded or maintained based on the Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall be the Base Rate.
    (B)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, if a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-In Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then (x) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (1) or (2) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” for such Benchmark Replacement Date, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Transaction Document in respect of such Benchmark setting and subsequent Benchmark settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Transaction Document and (y) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” for such Benchmark Replacement Date, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Transaction Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Lenders without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Transaction Document so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from the Majority Lenders.
    (C)    [Reserved].
    (D)    In connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document.
    (E)    The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of (i) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-In Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date, (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (iii) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes, (iv) the removal or reinstatement of any tenor of a Benchmark pursuant to clause (F) below and (v) the commencement or conclusion of any Benchmark Unavailability Period. Any determination, decision or election that
-18-

may be made by the Administrative Agent or, if applicable, any Lender (or group of Lenders) pursuant to this Section 2.15, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 2.15.
    (F)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, at any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (i) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including Term SOFR or the Adjusted LIBOR Rate) and either (a) any tenor for such Benchmark is not displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such rate from time to time as selected by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion or (b) the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark has provided a public statement or publication of information announcing that any tenor for such Benchmark is or will be no longer representative, then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Interest Accrual Period” for any Benchmark settings at or after such time to remove such unavailable or non-representative tenor and (ii) if a tenor that was removed pursuant to clause (i) above either (a) is subsequently displayed on a screen or information service for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement) or (b) is not, or is no longer, subject to an announcement that it is or will no longer be representative for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement), then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Interest Accrual Period” for all Benchmark settings at or after such time to reinstate such previously removed tenor.
    (G)    Upon the Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, any Advance that would otherwise be funded or maintained based on the Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall during such LIBOR Unavailability Period instead be funded or maintained based on the Base Rate. During any Benchmark Unavailability Period or at any time that a tenor for the then-current Benchmark is not an Available Tenor, the component of the Base Rate based upon the then-current Benchmark or such tenor for such Benchmark, as applicable, will not be used in any determination of the Base Rate.
    Section 2.16.    Extension of the Scheduled Commitment Termination Date or Facility Maturity Date
. No earlier than ninety (90) days, and no later than sixty (60) days, prior to the then Scheduled Commitment Termination Date or Facility Maturity Date, the Borrower may deliver written notice to the Administrative Agent and each Funding Agent requesting an extension of such Scheduled Commitment Termination Date or Facility Maturity Date, as applicable. The Administrative Agent shall respond to such request no later than thirty (30) days following the date of its receipt of such request, indicating whether it is considering such request and preliminary conditions precedent to any extension of the Scheduled Commitment Termination Date or the Facility Maturity Date, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent determines to include in such response. The Administrative Agent’s failure to respond to a request delivered by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.16 shall not be deemed to constitute any agreement by the Administrative Agent to any such extension. The granting of any extension of the Scheduled Commitment Termination Date or the Facility Maturity Date, as applicable, requested by the Borrower shall be in the mutual discretion of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Lenders with the consent of all Lender Groups).

    Section 2.17.    Taxes
.
    (A)    Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 2.17 the term “applicable Law” includes FATCA.
    (B)    Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower under any Transaction 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 the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the 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) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
    (C)    Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Law, or at the option of a Funding Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
    (D)    Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify each Recipient, within ten 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) 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 Borrower by a Recipient (with a copy to each Funding Agent), or by a Funding Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Recipient, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
    (E)    Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Non-Conduit Lender shall severally indemnify each Funding Agent, within ten days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Non-Conduit Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified such Funding Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), and (ii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Non-Conduit Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by a Funding Agent in connection with any Transaction 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 Non-Conduit Lender by its Funding Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Non-Conduit Lender hereby authorizes its Funding Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Non-Conduit Lender under any Transaction Document or otherwise payable by such Funding Agent to the Non-Conduit Lender from any other source against any amount due to such Funding Agent under this paragraph (E).

    (F)    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.17, the Borrower shall deliver to each Funding 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 such Funding Agent.
    (G)    Status of Recipients. (i) Any Recipient that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Transaction Document shall deliver to the Borrower, the Paying Agent and the related Funding Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Recipient, if reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or the related Funding Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent as will enable the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent to determine whether or not such Recipient is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in clauses (ii)(a), (ii)(b) and (ii)(d) below) shall not be required if in the Recipient’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Recipient to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Recipient.
    (ii)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
    (a)    any Recipient that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower, the Paying Agent and the related Funding Agent on or prior to the date on which such Recipient becomes a Recipient under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent), executed originals of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 certifying that such Recipient is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
    (b)    any Recipient that is not a U.S. Person shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower, the Paying Agent and the related Funding Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent) on or prior to the date on which such Recipient becomes a Recipient under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
    (1)    in the case of a Recipient claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Transaction Document, executed originals of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Transaction Document, Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or
-21-

reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
    (2)    executed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI;
    (3)    in the case of a Recipient claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, (x) a certificate to the effect that such Recipient is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” related to the Borrower as described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Internal Revenue Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or
    (4)    to the extent a Recipient is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY, accompanied by Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate, Internal Revenue Service Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Recipient is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Recipient are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Recipient may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
    (c)    any Recipient which is not a U.S. Person shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower, the Paying Agent and the related Funding Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Recipient becomes a Recipient under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable Law to permit the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
    (d)    if a payment made to a Recipient under any Transaction Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Recipient 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 Recipient shall deliver to the Borrower, the Paying Agent and the related Funding Agent at the time or times prescribed by Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding 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 by the Borrower, the Paying Agent or such Funding Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower, the Paying Agent and such Funding Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Recipient has complied with such Recipient’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount, if
-22-

any, to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (d), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
Each Recipient 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 Borrower, the Paying Agent and the related Funding Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
    (H)    Forms for Paying Agent. The Administrative Agent and each Funding Agent shall deliver to the Paying Agent on or before the first Payment Date, executed originals of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 or W-8, as applicable, certifying that the Administrative Agent or such Funding Agent is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax. The Administrative Agent and each Funding Agent agrees that if such Internal Revenue Service Form previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or promptly notify the Paying Agent and the Borrower in writing of its legal inability to do so.
    (I)    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 2.17 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.17), 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 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 request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (I) (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 paragraph (I), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (I) 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 paragraph 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.
    (J)    Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section 2.17 shall survive the resignation or replacement of a Funding 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 Transaction Document.

    Section 2.18.    Request for Borrowing Exceeding Aggregate Commitment
.
(A)     Notice. The Borrower may, from time to time during the Availability Period, prior to the issuance of a Notice of Borrowing, send a written notice to the Administrative Agent and each Lender Group setting forth the Borrower’s intent to request a borrowing that will cause the Aggregate Outstanding Advances to exceed the Aggregate Commitment (but not the Maximum Facility Amount) then in effect. Such notice shall be sent no later than five (5) Business Days prior to the date on which the Borrower intends to send the related Notice of Borrowing and shall set forth the amount by which the sum of the Aggregate Outstanding Advances (after giving effect to such borrowing) will exceed the Aggregate Commitment and the related Funding Date.
(B)     Approval/Disapproval. Upon receipt of the notice described in Section 2.18(A) by the Funding Agents, each Funding Agent shall, no later than five (5) Business Days after receipt thereof, obtain the written approval or disapproval of each Non-Conduit Lender in the related Lender Group regarding the requested Advances, which approval shall be granted or not granted in the sole discretion of the Non-Conduit Lenders. If the making of the requested Advances is approved by each of the Non-Conduit Lenders so requested, the Borrower shall, in accordance with procedures set forth in Section 2.4, send the related Notice of Borrowing. Any approved Advances to be made by the Lenders in the related Lender Group shall be funded within such Lender Group pursuant to any allocation as agreed to by all of the members of such Lender Group. If the making of the requested Advances is not approved by any Non-Conduit Lender so requested, then the Borrower shall, prior to sending its Notice of Borrowing, modify the same in a manner sufficient to ensure that the requested borrowing does not cause the Aggregate Outstanding Advances to exceed the Aggregate Commitment then in effect, as applicable. If the making of the requested Advances is approved by one or more Non-Conduit Lenders so requested and not approved by one or more Non-Conduit Lender so requested, the approving Non-Conduit Lenders shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make all or a portion of the Advance requested of the non-approving Non-Conduit Lenders, and the Borrower shall, in accordance with procedures set forth in Section 2.4, send the related Notice of Borrowing.
(C)     Commitment. For the avoidance of doubt, if the making of an Advance by a Lender Group that would cause the Aggregate Outstanding Advances to exceed the Aggregate Commitment, as applicable, is approved, each Non-Conduit Lender’s Commitment shall be increased solely to the extent such Non-Conduit Lender approved the Advance. Each Non-Conduit Lender’s Commitment shall otherwise remain as set forth on Exhibit E unless increased and/or reduced from time to time in accordance with Section 2.6 or amended in connection with assignments made by a Non-Conduit Lender pursuant to Section 10.8. Moreover, the Borrower must go through the procedures described in Sections 2.18(A) and (B) each time a request for an Advance is made which would cause the sum of all outstanding Advances to exceed the Aggregate Commitment, as applicable.
(D)     Nothing set forth in this Section 2.18 requires a Conduit Lender to make any Advance; provided, however, a Conduit Lender may, in its sole discretion, make the Advance requested pursuant to this Section 2.18 for its Lender Group. Any Advance approved pursuant to this Section 2.18 shall be made pursuant to and in accordance with Sections 2.2 and 2.4.

        (iii) If the Administrative Agent receives more than one Class B Collateral Exercise Notice prior to the Class B Collateral Exercise Deadline (the senders of such Class B Collateral Exercise Notice, each a “Bidder”), the Administrative Agent shall schedule a meeting or conference call (the “Final Auction”) for 10:00 a.m. (or such other time as may be acceptable to the Administrative Agent and each Bidder) on the date that is two (2) Business Days prior to the Class B Collateral Purchase Date. At such meeting or on such call, each Bidder shall be entitled to make one or more irrevocable and unconditional bids to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Collateral on the Class B Collateral Purchase Date at an all cash price greater than the Class B Collateral Purchase Amount. The Final Auction shall conclude upon the earlier of (a) the time when all Bidders (other than the Bidder who made the then highest bid) confirm they will not make any further bids and (b) thirty (30) minutes having elapsed since the making of the then highest bid. The Bidder that has made the highest bid when the Final Auction has concluded shall be deemed to have exercised the Class B Collateral Purchase Right and shall be obligated irrevocably and unconditionally to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Collateral on the Class B Collateral Purchase Date at a price equal to such highest bid.
        (iv) If the Administrative Agent receives no Class B Collateral Exercise Notice prior to the Class B Collateral Exercise Deadline or the sale of the Collateral is for any reason not consummated on the Class B Collateral Purchase Date, the Class B Collateral Purchase Right shall terminate automatically without notice or any action required on the part of any Person and the Administrative Agent shall, subject to the terms of this Agreement, proceed with a sale of the Collateral (or rights or interests therein), at one or more public or private sales as permitted by law. Each of the Lenders may bid on and purchase the Collateral (or rights or interest therein) at such a sale.
        (v) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 6.4(B), the Majority Lenders agree not to instruct the Administrative Agent to solicit and accept bids in connection with, or to sell or dispose of, the Collateral following the occurrence of an Event of Default unless and until (i) no Class B Lender shall have duly delivered to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 6.3 a Class B Buyout Notice for such Class B Lender on or prior to the related Class B Purchase Right Termination Date or (ii) the Class B Lenders who have delivered timely Class B Buyout Notice(s) shall have failed to pay the Class B Buyout Amount for such Class B Lender in full on the related Class B Buyout Option Exercise Date all in accordance with Section 6.3.
    (C)     If the Class B Lenders do not elect to exercise the Class B Collateral Purchase Right prior to the Class B Collateral Exercise Deadline, then the Administrative Agent shall sell the Collateral as otherwise set forth in this Section 6.4 and pursuant to the other Transaction Documents. The Class B Lenders shall also have the right to bid for and purchase the Collateral offered for sale at

a public auction conducted by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 6.4 and the other Transaction Documents and, upon compliance with the terms of any such sale, may hold, retain and dispose of such property without further accountability therefor. Any Class B Lender purchasing Collateral at such a sale may set off the purchase price of such property against amounts owing to it in payment of such purchase price up to the full amount owing to it so long as the cash portion of such purchase price equals or exceeds either the (x) cash portion of the next highest bidder in such auction or (y) amount required to pay off the Class A Obligations in full.
    (D)     Unless otherwise stipulated at the time of sale, the Collateral or any portion thereof are to be sold on an “as is-where is” basis.
    (E)     The Administrative Agent shall incur no liability as a result of the sale (whether public or private) of the Collateral or any part thereof at any sale pursuant to this Agreement conducted in a commercially reasonable manner and at the written direction of the Majority Lenders. Each of the Borrower and the Secured Parties hereby agrees that in respect of any sale of any of the Collateral pursuant to the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to comply with any limitation or restriction in connection with such sale as it may be advised by counsel is necessary in order to avoid any violation of Applicable Laws, or in order to obtain any required approval of the sale or of the purchaser by any Governmental Authority, and the Borrower and the Secured Parties further agree that such compliance shall not, in and of itself, result in such sale being considered or deemed not to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner, nor shall the Administrative Agent be liable or accountable to the Borrower or the Secured Parties for any discount allowed by reason of the fact that the Collateral or any part thereof is sold in compliance with any such limitation or restriction.

The holders of the Obligations owing to the Class B Lenders agree, for the benefit of the holders of the Obligations owing to the Class A Lenders, that, before the date that is one year and one day after the termination of this Agreement or, if longer, the expiration of the then applicable preference period plus one day, the holders of the Obligations of the Class B Lenders shall not, without the prior written consent of the Majority Lenders, acquiesce, petition or otherwise invoke or cause any other Person to invoke the process of any governmental authority for the purpose of commencing or sustaining a case against the Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code and any other applicable federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official of the Borrower or any substantial part of its property or ordering the winding-up or liquidation of the affairs of the Borrower.

Account and valued for purposes of determining the amount on deposit in the Supplemental Reserve Account at the amount as of any date then available to be drawn on such Letter of Credit.
If at any time a Letter of Credit is held by the Paying Agent as an asset of the Supplemental Reserve Account, then: (i) if the Letter of Credit is scheduled to expire by its terms and ten (10) days prior to the scheduled expiration date such Letter of Credit has not been extended or replaced, then the Borrower (or the Facility Administrator on behalf of the Borrower) or the Administrative Agent shall on such tenth (10th) day prior to the scheduled expiration date notify the Paying Agent in writing of such failure to extend or replace the Letter of Credit, and the Paying Agent shall, submit the drawing documents delivered to it by the Borrower (or the Facility Administrator on behalf of the Borrower) or the Administrative Agent to the Eligible Letter of Credit Bank no later than 5:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the second (2nd) Business Day prior to the scheduled expiration date and draw the full amount of such Letter of Credit and deposit the proceeds of such drawing into the Supplemental Reserve Account, and (ii) if the Borrower (or the Facility Administrator on behalf of the Borrower) or the Administrative Agent notifies the Paying Agent in writing that the financial institution issuing the Letter of Credit ceases to be an Eligible Letter of Credit Bank or a Responsible Officer of the Paying Agent otherwise receives written notice that the financial institution issuing the Letter of Credit ceases to be an Eligible Letter of Credit Bank, then the Paying Agent shall, no later than the second (2nd) Business Day after receipt of any such written notice by a Responsible Officer of the Paying Agent submit the drawing documents delivered to it by the Borrower (or the Facility Administrator on behalf of the Borrower) or the Administrative Agent to draw the full amount of such Letter of Credit and deposit the proceeds of such drawing into the Supplemental Reserve Account.

If at any time a Letter of Credit is held by the Paying Agent as an asset of the Supplemental Reserve Account, the stated amount of the Letter of Credit may be reduced from time to time, to the extent of any reduction in the dollar amount of the Supplemental Reserve Account Required Balance. Each month upon receipt by the Paying Agent of the Facility Administrator Report if such Facility Administrator Report shows a reduction in the Supplemental Reserve Account Required Balance, then the Borrower (or the Facility Administrator on behalf of the Borrower) or the Administrative Agent shall, prior to the related Payment Date, direct the Paying Agent to send the Eligible Letter of Credit Bank a letter in the form provided in the Letter of Credit to reduce the stated amount of the Letter of Credit. The Borrower (or the Facility Administrator on behalf of the Borrower) or the Administrative Agent shall ensure that the letter submitted shall provide for the reduction to be effective as of the close of business on the related Payment Date. The reduction shall be in the amount shown on the Facility Administrator Report as the Supplemental Reserve Account “reductions” and the remaining stated amount of the Letter of Credit shall be equal to the Supplemental Reserve Account Required Balance “ending required amount” as shown on the Facility Administrator Report. Any drawing on the Letter of Credit may be reimbursed by the Borrower only from amounts remitted to the Borrower pursuant to clauses (xiii) or (xiv) of Section 2.7(B).
Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, in no event shall the Paying Agent be required to report, track, calculate or monitor the value, available amount or any other information regarding any Letter of Credit for any party hereto or beneficiary of or under the Supplemental Reserve Account, except as expressly required pursuant to this Section 8.2(D).

    (F)    Paying Agent Account Control. (i) Each Paying Agent Account shall be established and at all times maintained with the Paying Agent which shall act as a “securities intermediary” (as defined in Section 8-102 of the UCC) and a “bank” (as defined in Section 9-102 of the UCC) hereunder (in such capacities, the “Securities Intermediary”) with respect to each Paying Agent Account. The Paying Agent hereby confirms that, as of the Amendment and Restatement Date, the account numbers of each of the Paying Agent Accounts are as described on Schedule II attached hereto.
    (ii)    Each Paying Agent Account shall be a “securities account” as defined in Section 8-501 of the UCC and shall be maintained by the Paying Agent as a securities intermediary for and in the name of the Borrower, subject to the lien of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties.  The Paying Agent shall treat the Administrative Agent as the “entitlement holder” (within the meaning of Section 8-102(a)(7) of the UCC) in respect of all “financial assets” (within the meaning of Section 8-102(a)(9) of the UCC) credited to the Paying Agent Accounts.
    (iii)    The Paying Agent hereby confirms and agrees that:
    (a)    the Paying Agent shall not change the name or account number of any Paying Agent Account without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower;
    (b)    all securities or other property underlying any financial assets (as hereinafter defined) credited to a Paying Agent Account shall be registered in the name of the Paying Agent, indorsed to the Paying Agent or indorsed in blank or credited to another securities account maintained in the name of the Paying Agent, and in no case will any financial asset credited to a Paying Agent Account be registered in the name of the Borrower or any other Person, payable to the Borrower or specially indorsed to the Borrower or any other Person, except to the extent the foregoing have been specially indorsed to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, or in blank;
    (c)    all property transferred or delivered to the Paying Agent pursuant to this Agreement will be credited to the appropriate Borrower Account in accordance with the terms of this Agreement;
-84-
[***] = Certain information has been excluded from this exhibit because it is both not material and would likely cause harm to the company if publicly disclosed.


    (d)    each Paying Agent Account is an account to which financial assets are or may be credited, and the Paying Agent shall, subject to the terms of this Agreement, treat each of the Borrower and the Facility Administrator as entitled to exercise the rights that comprise any financial asset credited to each such Paying Agent Account; and
    (e)    notwithstanding the intent of the parties hereto, to the extent that any Paying Agent Account shall be determined to constitute a “deposit account” within the meaning of Section 9-102(a)(29) of the UCC, such Paying Agent Account shall be subject to the exclusive control of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, and the Paying Agent will comply with instructions originated by the Administrative Agent directing disposition of the funds in such Paying Agent Account, without further consent by the Borrower or the Facility Administrator; provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrative Agent hereby authorizes the Paying Agent to honor withdrawal, payment, transfer or other instructions directing disposition of the funds in the Collection Account received from the Borrower or the Facility Administrator, on its behalf, pursuant to Section 2.7 or this Section 8.2.
    (iv)    The Paying Agent hereby agrees that each item of property (including, without limitation, any investment property, financial asset, security, instrument or cash) credited to any Paying Agent Account shall be treated as a “financial asset” within the meaning of Section 8-102(a)(9) of the UCC.

    (v)    If at any time the Paying Agent shall receive an “entitlement order” (as defined in Section 8-102(a)(8) of the UCC) (an “Entitlement Order”) from the Administrative Agent (i.e., an order directing a transfer or redemption of any financial asset in any Paying Agent Account), or any “instruction” (within the meaning of Section 9-104 of the UCC), originated by the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent shall comply with such Entitlement Order or instruction without further consent by the Borrower, the Facility Administrator or any other Person. Neither the Facility Administrator nor the Borrower shall make any withdrawals from any Paying Agent Account, except pursuant to Section 2.7 or this Section 8.2.
    (vi)    In the event that the Paying Agent has or subsequently obtains by agreement, by operation of law or otherwise a security interest in any Paying Agent Account or any financial assets, funds, cash or other property credited thereto or any security entitlement with respect thereto, the Paying Agent hereby agrees that such security interest shall be subordinate to the security interest of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the financial assets, funds, cash or other property credited to any Paying Agent Account will not be subject to deduction, set-off, banker’s lien, or any other right in favor of any Person other than the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties (except that the Paying Agent may set-off (i) all amounts due to the Paying Agent in its capacity as securities intermediary in respect of customary fees and expenses for the routine maintenance and operation of the Paying Agent Accounts, and (ii) the face amount of any checks that have been credited to the Paying Agent Accounts but are subsequently returned unpaid because of uncollected or insufficient funds).

    (vii)    Regardless of any provision in any other agreement, for purposes of the UCC, New York shall be deemed to be the “bank’s jurisdiction” (within the meaning of Section 9-304 of the UCC) and the “security intermediary’s jurisdiction” (within the meaning of Section 8-110 of the UCC).
    (viii)    If, at any time, the Paying Agent resigns, is removed hereunder or ceases to meet the eligibility requirements of an Eligible Institution, the Facility Administrator, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, shall within thirty (30) days establish a new Collection Account, Supplemental Reserve Account, Liquidity Reserve Account, the SAP Revenue Account, and Takeout Transaction Account meeting the conditions specified above with an Eligible Institution reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and transfer any cash and/or any investments held therein or with respect thereto to such new Collection Account, Supplemental Reserve Account, Liquidity Reserve Account, SAP Revenue Account, or Takeout Transaction Account, as applicable. From the date such new Collection Account, Supplemental Reserve Account, Liquidity Reserve Account, SAP Revenue Account, or Takeout Transaction Account is established, it shall be the “Collection Account,” “Supplemental Reserve Account,” “Liquidity Reserve Account,” “SAP Revenue Account,” or “Takeout Transaction Account” hereunder, as applicable.
    (G)    Permitted Investments. Prior to an Event of Default, the Facility Administrator (and after an Event of Default, the Administrative Agent) may direct each banking institution at which the Collection Account, the Liquidity Reserve Account, Supplemental Reserve Account, SAP Revenue Account, or Takeout Transaction Account shall be established, in writing, to invest the funds held in such accounts in one or more Permitted Investments. Absent such written direction, such funds shall remain uninvested. All investments of funds on deposit in the Collection Account, the Liquidity Reserve Account, Supplemental Reserve Account, SAP Revenue Account, or Takeout Transaction Account shall be uninvested so that such funds will be available on the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which the funds are to be disbursed from such account, unless otherwise expressly set forth herein. All interest derived from such Permitted Investments shall be deemed to be “investment proceeds” and shall be deposited into such account to be distributed in accordance with the requirements hereof. The taxpayer identification number associated with the Collection Account, the Liquidity Reserve Account, Supplemental Reserve Account, SAP Revenue Account, and Takeout Transaction Account shall be that of the Borrower, and the Borrower shall report for federal, state and local income tax purposes the income, if any, earned on funds in such accounts.

The provisions of this Section 9.5 shall survive the discharge, termination or assignment of this Agreement or any related agreement or the earlier of the resignation or removal of the Paying Agent. This Section 9.5 shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, liabilities, claims and damages arising from any non-Tax Proceeding. The Paying Agent Indemnified Parties’ reasonable and documented expenses are intended as expenses of administration.
    Section 9.6.    Successor Paying Agent
. The Paying Agent may resign at any time by giving at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice thereof to the other parties hereto; provided, that no such resignation shall become effective until a successor Paying Agent that is satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and, to the extent no Event of Default or Amortization Event has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower, has been appointed hereunder. The Paying Agent may be removed at any time for cause by at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice received by the Paying Agent from the Administrative Agent. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Administrative Agent shall have the right to appoint a successor Paying Agent that is satisfactory to the Borrower (unless an Event of Default or Amortization Event has occurred and is continuing). If no successor Paying Agent shall have been so appointed and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the exiting Paying Agent’s giving notice of resignation or receipt of notice of removal, then the exiting Paying Agent may, at the sole expense (including all fees, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ reasonable and documented fees and expenses) incurred in connection with such petition) of the Borrower, petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor Paying Agent. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Paying Agent hereunder by a successor Paying Agent, such successor Paying Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the exiting Paying Agent, and the exiting Paying Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any exiting Paying Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article IX shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Paying Agent hereunder. If the Paying Agent consolidates with, merges or converts

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 10.5, the provisions of this Section shall be applied without prejudice to, and the provisions shall not have the effect of diminishing, the rights of the Paying Agent and any Paying Agent Indemnified Parties under Section 9.5 of this Agreement or any other provision of any Transaction Document providing for the indemnification of any such Persons.

costs and expenses, if any (including reasonable and documented counsel fees and expenses) (A) in connection with the enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of this Agreement, the Loan Notes and the other documents to be delivered hereunder and (B) incurred by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Paying Agent in connection with the transactions described herein and in the other Transaction Documents, or any potential Takeout Transaction, including in any case reasonable and documented counsel fees and expenses in connection with the enforcement of rights under this Section 10.6. Without limiting the foregoing, the Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the Administrative Agent or its counsel may at any time after an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, engage professional consultants selected by the Administrative Agent to conduct additional due diligence with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby, including (A) review and independently assess the existing methodology employed by the Borrower in allocating Collections with respect to the Collateral, assess the reasonableness of the methodology for the equitable allocation of those Collections and make any recommendations to amend the methodology, if appropriate, (B) review the financial forecasts submitted by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent and assess the reasonableness and feasibility of those forecasts and make any recommendations based on that review, if appropriate, and (C) verify the asset base of the Borrower and the Borrower’s valuation of their assets, as well as certain matters related thereto. The reasonable and documented fees and expenses of such professional consultants, in accordance with the provisions of this Section 10.6, shall be at the sole cost and expense of the Borrower. In addition, the Borrower shall pay any and all Other Taxes and agrees to save the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent and each Lender harmless from and against any and all liabilities with respect to or resulting from any delay in paying or omission to pay such Other Taxes.

The Administrative Agent and each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Borrower after any such set-off and application; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders under this Section 10.7(A) are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of set-off) which the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may have.
    (B)    If any Lender, whether by setoff or otherwise, has payment made to it upon its Advances in a greater proportion than that received by any other Lender, such other Lender agrees, promptly upon demand, to purchase a portion of the Advances held by the Lenders so that after such purchase each Lender will hold its ratable share of Advances. If any Lender, whether in connection with setoff or amounts which might be subject to setoff or otherwise, receives collateral or other protection for its
-99-

Obligations or such amounts which may be subject to setoff, such Lender agrees, promptly upon written demand, to take such action necessary such that all Lenders share in the benefits of such collateral ratably in proportion to the obligations owing to them. In case any such payment is disturbed by legal process, or otherwise, appropriate further adjustments shall be made.
    (C)    Except with respect to the exercise of set-off rights of any Lender in accordance with Section 10.7(A), the proceeds of which are applied in accordance with this Agreement, each Lender agrees that it will not take any action, nor institute any actions or proceedings, against the Borrower or any other obligor hereunder or with respect to any Collateral or Transaction Document, without the prior written consent of the other Lenders or, as may be provided in this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, at the direction of the Administrative Agent.

. (A) This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Borrower, the Paying Agent, the Verification Agent, the Facility Administrator and the Administrative Agent and each Lender, and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Borrower shall not have the right assign to its rights hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, and any assignment by Borrower in violation of this Section 10.8 shall be null and void.

Each Lender may assign to one or more banks or other entities all or any part or portion of, or may grant participations to one or more banks or other entities in all or any part or portion of its rights and obligations hereunder (including, without limitation, its Commitment, its Loan Notes or its Advances); provided that during the Availability Period, no Lender may transfer or assign any portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or any Loan Note to a Disqualified Lender; provided further that each such assignment (A) shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit F hereto or any other form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and (B) shall either be made (i) to a Permitted Assignee or (ii) to a Person that is acceptable to the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) unless an Event of Default or Amortization Event shall have occurred and be continuing.
    (B)    If any assignment or participation is made to a Disqualified Lender in violation of this Section 10.8, the Borrower may upon notice to the applicable Disqualified Lender and the Administrative Agent, (A) purchase or prepay the Advances held by such Disqualified Lender by paying the lesser of (x) the principal amount thereof and (y) the amount that such Disqualified Lender paid to acquire such Advances, in each case plus accrued interest, accrued fees and all other amounts (other than principal amounts) payable to it hereunder and/or (B) require such Disqualified Lender to assign, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in this Section 10.8), all of its interest, rights and obligations under this Agreement to one or more banks or other entities at the lesser of (x) the principal amount thereof and (y) the amount that such Disqualified
-100-

Lender paid to acquire such interests, rights and obligations, in each case plus accrued interest, accrued fees and all other amounts (other than principal amounts) payable to it hereunder.
    Disqualified Lenders (A) will not, absent an Event of Default or consent from the Borrower (x) have the right to receive financial reports that are not publicly available, Facility Administrator Reports or other reports or confidential information provided to Lenders by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent (other than Tax reporting information with respect to the Advances), (y) attend or participate in meetings with the Borrower attended by the Lenders and the Administrative Agent, or (z) access any electronic site maintained by the Borrower or Administrative Agent to provide Lenders with confidential information or confidential communications from counsel to or financial advisors of the Administrative Agent and (B) (x) for purposes of any consent to any amendment, waiver or modification of, or any action under, and for the purpose of any direction to the Administrative Agent or any Lender to undertake any action (or refrain from taking any action) under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, each Disqualified Lender will be deemed to have consented in the same proportion as the Lenders that are not Disqualified Lenders consented to such matter, and (y) for purposes of voting on any plan of reorganization or plan of liquidation, each Disqualified Lender party hereto hereby agrees (1) not to vote on such plan, (2) if such Disqualified Lender does vote on such plan notwithstanding the restriction in the foregoing clause (1), such vote will be deemed not to be in good faith and shall be “designated” pursuant to Section 1126(e) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision in any other debtor relief laws), and such vote shall not be counted in determining whether the applicable class has accepted or rejected such plan in accordance with Section 1126(c) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision in any other debtor relief laws) and (3) not to contest any request by any party for a determination by a bankruptcy court (or other applicable court of competent jurisdiction) effectuating the foregoing clause (2).
(C)    Upon, and to the extent of, any assignment (unless otherwise stated therein) made by any Lender hereunder, the assignee or purchaser of such assignment shall be a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement and shall have all the rights, benefits and obligations (including the obligation to provide documentation pursuant to Section 2.17(G)) of a Lender hereunder. Each Funding Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders in its Lender Group, the outstanding principal amounts (and accrued interest) of the Advances owing to each Lender in its Lender Group pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time and any assignment of such outstanding Advances. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower, the Paying Agent and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
(D)    Any Lender may, without the consent of the Borrower, sell participation interests in its Advances and obligations hereunder (each such recipient of a participation a “Participant”); provided that after giving effect to the sale of such participation, such Lender’s obligations hereunder and rights to consent to any waiver hereunder or amendment hereof shall remain unchanged, such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, all amounts payable to such Lender hereunder and all rights to consent to any waiver hereunder or amendment hereof shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold such participation interest, and the Borrower and the Administrative Agent and the other parties hereto shall continue to deal solely
-101-

and directly with such Lender and not be obligated to deal with such participant. The Participant shall have no right to affect such Lender’s vote or action with respect to any matter requiring such Lender’s vote or action under this Agreement. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the outstanding principal amounts (and accrued interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Advances or other obligations under the Transaction Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Transaction Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register. Each recipient of a participation shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, have the same rights, benefits and obligations (including the obligation to provide documentation pursuant to Section 2.17(G)), hereunder with respect to the rights and benefits so participated as it would have if it were a Lender hereunder, except that no Participant shall be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.11 or 2.17 than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation.
(E)    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, (i) a Lender may pledge as collateral, or grant a security interest in, all or any portion of its rights in, to and under this Agreement to a security trustee in connection with the funding by such Lender of Advances without the consent of the Borrower; provided that no such pledge or grant shall release such Lender from its obligations under this Agreement and (ii) a Conduit Lender may at any time, without any requirement to obtain the consent of the Administrative Agent or the Borrower, pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights (including, without limitation, rights to payment of capital and yield) under this Agreement to a collateral agent or trustee for its commercial paper program.
(F)    In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder, no such assignment shall be effective unless and until, in addition to the other conditions thereto set forth herein, the parties to the assignment shall make such additional payments to the Administrative Agent in an aggregate amount sufficient, upon distribution thereof as appropriate (which may be outright payment, purchases by the assignee of participations or subparticipations, or other compensating actions, including funding, with the consent of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, the applicable pro rata share of Advances previously requested but not funded by the Defaulting Lender, to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (x) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent, or any Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon) and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full pro rata share of all Advances in accordance with its Lender Group Percentage. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder shall become effective under Applicable Law without
-102-

compliance with the provisions of this clause (F), then the assignee of such interest shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.

Each of the parties hereto waives personal service of any summons, complaint or other process, which may be made by any other means permitted by New York law.
    Section 10.11.    Waiver of Jury Trial
