WHEREAS, the Borrowers have requested certain amendments to the Existing Credit Agreement and Existing Security Agreement, including an amendment to the Financial Covenant set forth in the Existing Credit Agreement;

 

WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 9.01 of the Existing Credit Agreement, the Existing Credit Agreement and the Existing Security Agreement may be amended with the consent of the Lenders as further specified therein;

 

WHEREAS, the Lenders party hereto constitute the Required RCF/TLA Lenders and the Required Lenders under the Existing Credit Agreement; and

 

WHEREAS, the parties hereto desire to amend the Existing Credit Agreement and the Existing Security Agreement on the terms set forth herein;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and for other good and valuable consideration (the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged), the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

 

SECTION 1.     Amendments to Existing Credit Agreement. The Existing Credit Agreement is, effective as of the Amendment Effective Date (as defined below), and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent set forth in SECTION 3, hereby amended to delete the stricken text (indicated textually in the same manner as the following example: stricken text) and to add the double-underlined text (indicated textually in the same manner as the following example: double-underlined text) as set forth in the Credit and Guaranty Agreement attached as Annex I hereto.

 

 

 

SECTION 2.     Amendment to Security Agreement. Effective as of the Amendment Effective Date (as defined below), Section 16(b)(ii) of the Security Agreement is hereby amended by inserting therein, immediately following the phrase “and such Hedge Bank in respect of Secured Hedge Agreements” contained in clause (3), thereof: “, (4) paid to each Lender Party (or its applicable Affiliate) and each Other Secured Party for any amounts then owing to such Lender Party (or such Affiliate) and such Other Secured Party in respect of Other Secured Agreements” and by renumbering the original clause (4) as clause (5).

 

SECTION 3.     Effectiveness. This Amendment shall become effective upon the Administrative Agent’s (or its counsel’s) receipt of copies of the following (such date, the “Amendment Effective Date”):

 

(a)     counterparts of this Amendment executed by the Borrowers, the Guarantors and the Lenders constituting the Required RCF/TLA Lenders and the Required Lenders; or, as to any of the foregoing Lenders, advice satisfactory to the Administrative Agent that such Lender has executed and delivered this Amendment;

 

(b)     a certificate of Dana signed on behalf of Dana by a Responsible Officer, dated the Amendment Effective Date (the statements made in which certificate shall be true on and as of the Amendment Effective Date), certifying as to (A) the accuracy in all material respects of the representations and warranties made by Dana in the Loan Documents to which it is a party as though made on and as of the Amendment Effective Date, before and after giving effect to all of the Borrowings and the issuance of all of the Letters of Credit to be made on such date and to the application of proceeds, if any, therefrom; and (B) the absence of any event occurring and continuing, or resulting from any of the Borrowings or the issuance of any of the Letters of Credit to be made on the Amendment Effective Date or the application of proceeds, if any, therefrom, that would constitute a Default; and

 

(c)     a favorable opinion of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP, counsel to the Loan Parties, dated as of the Amendment Effective Date and addressing such matters (solely as to enforceability) as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request.

 

SECTION 4.     Representations and Warranties. Each of the Loan Parties hereby represents and warrants, on and as of the date hereof, that:

 

(a)      the representations and warranties contained in each Loan Document (including, without limitation, the Amended Credit Agreement) are true and correct in all material respects, only to the extent that such representation and warranty is not otherwise qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect on and as of such date, in which case such representation and warranty shall be true and correct in all respects, before and after giving effect to this Amendment, as though made on and as of the date hereof, other than any such representations or warranties that, by their terms, refer to an earlier date, in which case as of such earlier date; and

 

2

 

(b)     as of the Amendment Effective Date, no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or would result from this Amendment or any transactions contemplated hereby.

 

SECTION 5.     Acknowledgement and Agreement. Dana acknowledges and agrees that the real property known as 3939 Technology Drive, Maumee, OH (the “Office Property”) is a Material Real Property under the Amended Credit Agreement and that Dana will, within 120 days after the Amendment Effective Date (or such longer period of time as may be agreed to in writing by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion) provide the Administrative Agent with each of the items described in Section 5.01(i)(z)(I)–(III) of the Amended Credit Agreement. Dana further acknowledges and agrees that all terms and requirements applicable to Material Real Property in the Amended Credit Agreement shall apply to the Office Property from and after the Amendment Effective Date, including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Flood Insurance Requirements if the Office Property, at any time, is a Special Flood Hazard Property.

 

SECTION 6.     Affirmation and Consent of Guarantors and Grantors. Each Guarantor and Grantor hereby consents to the amendments to the Existing Credit Agreement and the Existing Security Agreement effected hereby, and hereby confirms, acknowledges and agrees that, (a) notwithstanding the effectiveness of this Amendment, the obligations of (x) such Guarantor contained in Article VIII of the Amended Credit Agreement or in any other Loan Document to which it is a party are, and shall remain, in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects, except that, on and after the Amendment Effective Date, each reference in Article VIII of the Existing Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import shall mean and be a reference to the Amended Credit Agreement and (y) such Grantor contained in the Amended Security Agreement or in any other Loan Document to which it is a party are, and shall remain, in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects, except that, on and after the Amendment Effective Date, each reference in the Existing Security Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import shall mean and be a reference to the Amended Security Agreement, (b) the pledge and security interest in the Collateral granted by it pursuant to the Collateral Documents to which it is a party shall continue in full force and effect and (c) such pledge and security interest in the Collateral granted by it pursuant to such Collateral Documents shall continue to secure the Obligations purported to be secured thereby.

 

SECTION 7.     Reference to and Effect on the Loan Documents. (a) Upon and after the effectiveness of this Amendment, each reference in the Existing Credit Agreement and the Existing Security Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Existing Credit Agreement or the Existing Security Agreement, as applicable, and each reference in the Notes and each of the other Loan Documents to “the Credit Agreement”, “the Security Agreement”, “thereunder”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Existing Credit Agreement or the Existing Security Agreement, as applicable, shall mean and be a reference to the Amended Credit Agreement or the Amended Security Agreement, as applicable.

 

3

 

(b)     The Existing Credit Agreement, the Amended Credit Agreement, the Existing Security Agreement and the Amended Security Agreement, as specifically amended by this Amendment, are and shall continue to be in full force and effect and are hereby in all respects ratified and confirmed. This Amendment shall constitute a “Loan Document” for all purposes of the Amended Credit Agreement, the Amended Security Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

 

(c)     The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of any Lender, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under the Existing Credit Agreement, the Amended Credit Agreement, the Existing Security Agreement, the Amended Security Agreement or any other Loan Document, nor constitute a waiver of any provision thereof.

 

SECTION 8.     Execution in Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which when taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Amendment by telecopier or other electronic communication shall be effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart thereof.

 

SECTION 9.     Jurisdiction, Etc. (a) Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of any New York State court or federal court of the United States of America sitting in the Borough of Manhattan, New York City, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Amendment or any of the other Loan Documents (except as expressly provided otherwise therein) to which it is a party, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in any such New York State court or, to the extent permitted by law, in such federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Amendment shall affect any right that any party may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Amendment or any of the other Loan Documents in the courts of any jurisdiction.

 

(b) Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Amendment or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party in any New York State or federal court. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.

 

(c) Each party to this Amendment irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.02 of the Amended Credit Agreement other than by facsimile. Nothing in this Amendment or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Amendment or any other Loan Document to serve process in any other manner permitted by law. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Amendment, DIL hereby irrevocably designates Dana, as the designee, appointee and agent of DIL to receive, for and on behalf of DIL, service of process in the State of New York in any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Amendment or any other Loan Document.

 

(d) Dana hereby accepts such appointment as process agent and agrees to (i) maintain an office at 3939 Technology Drive, Maumee, Ohio 43537 (or any other location in the United States) and to give the Administrative Agent prompt notice of any change of address of Dana, (ii) perform its duties as process agent to receive on behalf of DIL and its property service of copies of the summons and complaint and any other process which may be served in any action or proceeding in any New York State or federal court sitting in New York City arising out of or relating to this Amendment and (iii) forward forthwith to its then current address, copies of any summons, complaint and other process which Dana received in connection with its appointment as process agent.

Each 2018 New Term B Lender severally and not jointly with the other 2018 New Term B Lenders agreed, on the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the Amendment No. 2, to make an advance (each, a “2018 New Term B Advance”) to the Term Loan Borrower on the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date in an amount not to exceed such 2018 New Term B Lender’s 2018 New Term B Commitment. Amounts borrowed under this Section 2.01(d) may not be reborrowed.

 

(e)     Borrowings. Each Borrowing shall be in a principal amount of the Borrowing Minimum or an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple in excess thereof (other than a Borrowing the proceeds of which shall be used solely to repay or prepay in full outstanding Swing Line Advances or Letter of Credit Advances) and shall consist of Advances made simultaneously by the Lenders in the same currency under the applicable Facility ratably according to the Lenders’ Commitments under such Facility. Within the limits of each Lender’s Unused Revolving Credit Commitment in effect from time to time, the Revolving Credit Borrowers may borrow under Section 2.01(a), prepay pursuant to Section 2.06, and reborrow under Section 2.01(a).

 

(f)     The Swing Line Advances. The Swing Line Lender severally agrees on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth to make, in its sole discretion, Swing Line Advances in Dollars or in a Committed Currency to the Revolving Credit Borrowers from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date until the Revolving Credit Facility Termination Date in an aggregate amount (based in respect of any Swing Line Advances to be denominated in a Committed Currency by reference to the Equivalent thereof in Dollars determined on the date of delivery of the applicable Notice of Swing Line Borrowing) owing to the Swing Line Lender not to exceed at any time outstanding the lesser of (i) the Swing Line Facility at such time and (ii) the Swing Line Lender’s Swing Line Commitment at such time; provided, however, that no Swing Line Borrowing shall exceed the aggregate of the Unused Revolving Credit Commitments of the Revolving Credit Lenders at such time; provided, further, that the Swing Line Lender shall not be obligated to make any Swing Line Advance. A Swing Line Advance denominated in Dollars shall be a Base Rate Advance, a Swing Line Advance denominated in Sterling shall be an Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advance and a Swing Line Advance denominated in Euros shall be a Cost of Funds Advance. No Swing Line Advance shall be used for the purpose of funding the payment of principal of any other Swing Line Advance. Each Swing Line Borrowing shall be in an amount of $500,000 (for Swing Line Advances denominated in Dollars), £400,000 (for Swing Line Advances denominated in Sterling) or €400,000 (for Swing Line Advances denominated in Euros) or an integral multiple of $100,000, £100,000 or €100,000, respectively in excess thereof. Within the limits of the Swing Line Facility and within the limits referred to in the first sentence of this subsection (f), a Revolving Credit Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.01(f), repay pursuant to Section 2.04(d) or prepay pursuant to Section 2.06(a) and reborrow under this Section 2.01(f). Immediately upon the making of a Swing Line Advance, each Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swing Line Lender a risk participation in such Swing Line Advance in an amount equal to the product of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share times the principal amount of such Swing Line Advance.

Section 1.02     Making the Advances. Except as otherwise provided in Section 2.02(b) or 2.03, each Borrowing shall be made on notice, given not later than (x) 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the third Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Borrowing in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Eurocurrency Rate Advances or (y) on the Business Day of the proposed Borrowing in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Base Rate Advances, by the Applicable Borrower to the Administrative Agent, which shall give to each Lender prompt notice thereof by telex or telecopier. Each such notice of a Borrowing (a “Notice of Borrowing”) shall be by telephone, confirmed immediately in writing, or telex or telecopier or electronic mail, in substantially the form of Exhibit B hereto, specifying therein the requested (i) date of such Borrowing, (ii) the Facility under which such Borrowing is to be made, (iii) Type of Advances comprising such Borrowing, (iv) aggregate amount of such Borrowing and (v) in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Eurocurrency Rate Advances, initial Interest Period and currency for each such Advance. Each Lender shall, before 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of such Borrowing in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Eurocurrency Rate Advances denominated in Dollars, and before 9:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of such Borrowing in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Eurocurrency Rate Advances denominated in any Committed Currency, make available for the account of its Applicable Lending Office to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Account, in same day funds, such Lender’s ratable portion of such Borrowing in accordance with the respective Commitments of such Lender and the other Lenders. After the Administrative Agent’s receipt of such funds and upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, the Administrative Agent will make such funds available to the Applicable Borrower by crediting the Applicable Borrower’s Account or such other account as the Applicable Borrower shall request; provided, however, that, in the case of Revolving Credit Advances, the Administrative Agent shall first apply such funds to prepay ratably the aggregate principal amount of any Swing Line Advances and Letter of Credit Advances outstanding on the date of such Borrowing, plus interest accrued and unpaid thereon to and as of such date.

 

68

 

(b)    (i)  Each Swing Line Borrowing shall be made on notice, given not later than (x) 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of the proposed Swing Line Borrowing in the case of a Swing Line Borrowing denominated in Dollars or (y) 9:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of the proposed Swing Line Borrowing in the case of a Swing Line Borrowing denominated in any Committed Currency, by the Applicable Borrower to the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent. Each such notice of a Swing Line Borrowing (a “Notice of Swing Line Borrowing”) shall be by telephone, confirmed immediately in writing, or telecopier, specifying therein the requested (i) date of such Borrowing, (ii) amount and currency of such Borrowing and (iii) maturity of such Borrowing (which maturity shall be no later than the seventh day after the requested date of such Borrowing). The Swing Line Lender will make the amount of the requested Swing Line Advances available to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Account, in same day funds and in the requested currency. After the Administrative Agent’s receipt of such funds and upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, the Administrative Agent will make such funds available to the Applicable Borrower by crediting the Applicable Borrower’s Account or such other account as the Applicable Borrower shall request.

 

(ii)     The Swing Line Lender (for so long as CITI is the sole Swing Line Lender) may, at any time in its sole and absolute discretion, request on behalf of the Applicable Borrower (and the Applicable Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes the Swing Line Lender to so request on its behalf) that each Revolving Credit Lender make a Base Rate Advance in an amount equal to such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the amount of Swing Line Advances (based in respect of any Swing Line Advance denominated in a Committed Currency by reference to the Equivalent thereof in Dollars) then outstanding. Such request shall be deemed to be a Notice of Borrowing for purposes hereof and shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.02(a) without regard solely to the minimum amounts specified therein but subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 (except that the Applicable Borrower shall not be deemed to have made any representations and warranties). The Swing Line Lender shall furnish the Applicable Borrower with a copy of the Notice of Borrowing promptly after delivering such notice to the Administrative Agent. Each Revolving Credit Lender shall make an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the amount specified in such Notice of Borrowing available for the account of its Applicable Lending Office to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Swing Line Lender, by deposit to the Administrative Agent’s Account, in same date funds, not later than 3:00 P.M. on the day specified in such Notice of Borrowing.

 

(iii)     If for any reason any Swing Line Advance cannot be refinanced by a Borrowing as contemplated by Section 2.02(b)(ii) or if CITI is not the sole Swing Line Lender, the Swing Line Lender may request that each of the Revolving Credit Lenders fund its risk participation in the relevant Swing Line Advance and each Revolving Credit Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender shall be deemed payment in respect of such participation.

 

(iv)     If and to the extent that any Revolving Credit Lender shall not have made the amount of its Pro Rata Share of such Swing Line Advance available to the Administrative Agent in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.02(b)(ii), such Revolving Credit Lender agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date of the applicable Notice of Borrowing delivered by such Swing Line Lender until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at a rate equal to (x) the Federal Funds Rate in the case of any amount denominated in Dollars or (y) the cost of funds incurred by the Administrative Agent in respect of such amount denominated in Foreign Currencies.

 

69

 

(v)     Each Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Credit Advances or to purchase and fund risk participations in a Swing Line Advance pursuant to this Section 2.02(b) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, any Revolving Credit Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Credit Advances pursuant to this Section 2.02(b) is subject to satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3.02. No funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of any Revolving Credit Borrower to repay Swing Line Advances, together with interest as provided herein.

 

(c)     Anything in subsection (a) above to the contrary notwithstanding, (i) no Borrower may select Eurocurrency Rate Advances for any Borrowing if the aggregate amount of such Borrowing is less than the Borrowing Minimum or if the obligation of the Lenders to make Eurocurrency Rate Advances shall then be suspended pursuant to Section 2.09 or 2.10 and (ii) the Advances may not be outstanding as part of more than 15 separate Borrowings.

 

(d)     Each Notice of Borrowing and each Notice of Swing Line Borrowing shall be irrevocable and binding on the Applicable Borrower. In the case of any Borrowing that the related Notice of Borrowing specifies is to be comprised of Eurocurrency Rate Advances, the Applicable Borrower shall indemnify each Lender against any loss, cost or expense incurred by such Lender as a result of any failure to fulfill on or before the date specified in such Notice of Borrowing for such Borrowing the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, including, without limitation, any actual loss (excluding loss of anticipated profits), cost or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to fund the Advance to be made by such Lender as part of such Borrowing when such Advance, as a result of such failure, is not made on such date.

 

(e)     Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from any Lender prior to the date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s ratable portion of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such portion available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section 2.02 and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Applicable Borrower on such date a corresponding amount. If and to the extent that such Lender shall not have so made such ratable portion available to the Administrative Agent, such Lender and the Applicable Borrower severally agree to repay or pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount and to pay interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to the Applicable Borrower until the date such amount is repaid or paid to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of the Applicable Borrower, the interest rate applicable at such time under Section 2.07 to Advances comprising such Borrowing and (ii) in the case of such Lender, (x) the Federal Funds Rate in the case of Advances denominated in Dollars or (y) the cost of funds incurred by the Administrative Agent in respect of such amount in the case of Advances denominated in Foreign Currencies. If such Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Advance as part of such Borrowing for all purposes of this Agreement.

 

70

 

(f)     The failure of any Lender to make the Advance to be made by it shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Advance or make available on the date of such Borrowing, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make the Advance to be made by it.

 

(g)     Each Lender may, at its option, make any Advance available to any Borrower by causing any foreign or domestic branch or Affiliate (which shall be treated as a Lender for all purposes of this Agreement and comply with all requirements of a Lender hereunder) of such Lender to make such Advance; provided, however, that (i) any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of such Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and (ii) nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed to obligate any Lender to obtain the funds for any Advance in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation or warranty by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for any Advance in any particular place or manner.

 

Section 1.03     Issuance of and Drawings and Reimbursement Under Letters of Credit.

 

(a)     The Letter of Credit Commitment.

 

(i)     Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, (A) each Issuing Bank agrees, in reliance upon the agreements of the Loan Parties set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents and in reliance upon the agreements of the Lenders set forth in this Section 2.03, (1) from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date until the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, to issue Letters of Credit denominated in Dollars or any Committed Currency for the account of Dana or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries, and to amend Letters of Credit previously issued by it, in accordance with subsection (b) below, and (2) to honor drafts and other demands for payment under a Letter of Credit that comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and (B) the Lenders severally agree to participate in Letters of Credit issued for the account of Dana or any of its Subsidiaries; provided that the Issuing Banks shall not be obligated to issue any Letter of Credit, and no Lender shall be obligated to participate in any Letter of Credit if as of the date of such issuance, (x) the Available Amount for all Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank (determined for Letters of Credit denominated in any Committed Currency by reference to the Equivalent thereof in Dollars) would exceed the lesser of the Letter of Credit Sublimit at such time and such Issuing Bank’s Letter of Credit Commitment at such time, (y) the Available Amount of such Letter of Credit (determined for Letters of Credit denominated in any Committed Currency by reference to the Equivalent thereof in Dollars) would exceed the Unused Revolving Credit Commitment or (z) the sum of (1) the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Credit Advances plus Swing Line Advances and Letter of Credit Advances outstanding at such time plus (2) the aggregate Available Amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time (in each case determined for Advances or Letters of Credit denominated in any Committed Currency by reference to the Equivalent thereof in Dollars) exceed the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments at such time. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the terms and conditions hereof, a Revolving Credit Borrower’s ability to obtain Letters of Credit shall be fully revolving, and accordingly a Revolving Credit Borrower may, during the foregoing period, obtain Letters of Credit to replace Letters of Credit that have expired or that have been drawn upon and reimbursed. All Existing Letters of Credit issued for the account of Dana or its Subsidiaries shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.

 

71

 

(ii)     No Issuing Bank shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if: (A) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such Issuing Bank from issuing such Letter of Credit, or any law applicable to such Issuing Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such Issuing Bank shall prohibit, or request that such Issuing Bank refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such Issuing Bank any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which such Issuing Bank in good faith deems material to it; (B) the expiry date of such requested Letter of Credit would occur after the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, unless such Issuing Bank has approved such expiry date; (C) the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such Issuing Bank; or (D) such Letter of Credit is in an initial amount less than $100,000 (for Letters of Credit denominated in Dollars), £100,000 (for Letters of Credit denominated in Sterling) or €100,000 (for Letters of Credit denominated in Euros) (in each case unless such Issuing Bank agrees otherwise), or is to be denominated in a currency other than Dollars or a Committed Currency.

 

(iii)     No Issuing Bank shall be under any obligation to amend any Letter of Credit if (A) such Issuing Bank would have no obligation at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof, or (B) the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed amendment to such Letter of Credit.

 

(b)     Procedures for Issuance and Amendment of Letters of Credit.

 

(i)     Each Letter of Credit shall be issued or amended, as the case may be, upon the request of a Revolving Credit Borrower delivered to the applicable Issuing Bank (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) in the form of a Letter of Credit Application, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Applicable Borrower or such Restricted Subsidiary for whose account such Letter of Credit is to be issued. Such Letter of Credit Application must be received by the applicable Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) at least two Business Days (or such later date and time as such Issuing Bank may agree in writing in a particular instance in its sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be. In the case of a request for an initial issuance of a Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Application shall specify in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the applicable Issuing Bank: (A) the proposed issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit (which shall be a Business Day); (B) the amount and currency thereof; (C) the expiry date thereof; (D) the name and address of the beneficiary thereof; (E) the documents to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (F) the full text of any certificate to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; and (G) such other matters as such Issuing Bank may reasonably require. In the case of a request for an amendment of any outstanding Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Application shall specify in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the applicable Issuing Bank (A) the Letter of Credit to be amended; (B) the proposed date of amendment thereof (which shall be a Business Day); (C) the nature of the proposed amendment; and (D) such other matters as such Issuing Bank may reasonably require.

 

72

 

(ii)     Promptly following receipt by the applicable Issuing Bank of written confirmation from the Administrative Agent that the requested issuance or amendment of a Letter of Credit is permitted in accordance with the terms hereof, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, such Issuing Bank shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of the Applicable Borrower or the applicable Restricted Subsidiary or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with such Issuing Bank’s usual and customary business practices. Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit (or an amendment increasing the face amount thereof), each Lender shall be deemed to purchase, and hereby absolutely, irrevocably and unconditionally purchases, from such Issuing Bank a risk participation in such Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the product of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share times the amount of such Letter of Credit.

 

(iii)     Promptly after its delivery of any Letter of Credit or any amendment to a Letter of Credit to an advising bank with respect thereto or to the beneficiary thereof, the applicable Issuing Bank will also deliver to the Applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent a true and complete copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment.

 

(c)     Drawings and Reimbursements; Funding of Participations.

 

(i)     Upon receipt from the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit of any notice of a drawing under such Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Bank shall notify the Applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent thereof. Following any payment by the applicable Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit (each date of such a payment, an “Honor Date”), the Applicable Borrower shall reimburse such Issuing Bank through the Administrative Agent in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing or, in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in a Committed Currency, the Equivalent of the amount of such drawing in Dollars (together with interest thereon at the rate set forth in Section 2.07 for Revolving Credit Advances bearing interest at the Base Rate), such reimbursement to be made not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the Honor Date or the earliest succeeding Business Day on which the Applicable Borrower receives notice of such payment; provided that if such notice is received later than 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on such date of receipt, the reimbursement shall be due not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the Business Day immediately succeeding the Business Day of receipt thereof. If the Applicable Borrower fails to so reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank by such time, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Credit Lender of the Honor Date, the Unreimbursed Amount, and the amount of such Revolving Credit Lender’s Pro Rata Share thereof. In such event, the Applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Borrowing to be disbursed on the Honor Date in an amount equal to, and in the same currency as, the Unreimbursed Amount, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified in Section 2.01 for the principal amount of Borrowings, but subject to the amount of the Unused Revolving Credit Commitments and the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 (other than the delivery of a Notice of Borrowing). Any notice given by an Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.03(c)(i) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.

 

73

 

(ii)     Each Revolving Credit Lender (including a Revolving Credit Lender acting as Issuing Bank) shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) make funds available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank at the Administrative Agent’s Office in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the Unreimbursed Amount not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Business Day specified in such notice by the Administrative Agent, whereupon, subject to the provisions of Section 2.03(c)(iii), each Revolving Credit Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Letter of Credit Advance to the Applicable Borrower in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the applicable Issuing Bank.

 

(iii)     With respect to any Unreimbursed Amount that is not fully refinanced by a Borrowing because the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 cannot be satisfied or for any other reason, the Applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have incurred from the applicable Issuing Bank a Letter of Credit Advance in the amount of the Unreimbursed Amount that is not so refinanced, which Letter of Credit Advance shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at the rate described in Section 2.07(b). In such event, each Revolving Credit Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(ii) shall be deemed payment in respect of its participation in such Letter of Credit Advance and shall constitute a Letter of Credit Advance from such Revolving Credit Lender in satisfaction of its participation obligation under this Section 2.03.

 

(iv)     Until each Revolving Credit Lender funds its Revolving Credit Advance or Letter of Credit Advance pursuant to this Section 2.03(c) to reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank for any amount drawn under any Letter of Credit, interest in respect of such Revolving Credit Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such amount shall be solely for the account of such Issuing Bank.

 

(v)     Each Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation hereunder to fund its participation in respect of Letters of Credit (including by making Letter of Credit Advances to reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank for amounts drawn under Letters of Credit), as contemplated by this Section 2.03, shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Revolving Credit Lender may have against such Issuing Bank, any Revolving Credit Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. No such making of a Letter of Credit Advance shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of any Revolving Credit Borrower to reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank for the amount of any payment made by such Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit, together with interest as provided herein.

 

74

 

(vi)     If any Revolving Credit Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank any amount required to be paid by such Revolving Credit Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.03(c) by the time specified in this Section 2.03(c), such Issuing Bank shall be entitled to recover from such Revolving Credit Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the such Issuing Bank at a rate equal to (x) the Federal Funds Rate in the case of any amount denominated in Dollars or (y) the cost of funds incurred by the applicable Issuing Bank in respect of such amount denominated in Foreign Currencies. A certificate of the applicable Issuing Bank submitted to any Revolving Credit Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (vi) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

 

(d)     Repayment of Participations.

 

(i)     At any time after any Issuing Bank has made a payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any Revolving Credit Lender such Revolving Credit Lender’s Letter of Credit Advance in respect of such payment in accordance with Section 2.03(c), if the Administrative Agent receives for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank any payment in respect of the related Unreimbursed Amount or interest thereon (whether directly from the Applicable Borrower or otherwise, including proceeds of cash collateral applied thereto by the Administrative Agent), the Administrative Agent will distribute to such Revolving Credit Lender its Pro Rata Share thereof (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Credit Lender’s Letter of Credit Advance was outstanding) in the same funds as those received by the Administrative Agent.

 

(ii)     If any payment received by the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) is required to be returned under any circumstances (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Issuing Bank in its discretion), each Revolving Credit Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuing Bank its Pro Rata Share thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned by such Revolving Credit Lender, at a rate equal to (x) the Federal Funds Rate in the case of any amount denominated in Dollars or (y) the cost of funds incurred by the applicable Issuing Bank in respect of such amount denominated in Foreign Currencies.

 

75

 

(e)     Obligations Absolute. The obligation of the Applicable Borrower to reimburse any Issuing Bank for each drawing under each Letter of Credit and to repay each Letter of Credit Advance shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under all circumstances, including the following:

 

(i)     any lack of validity or enforceability of such Letter of Credit, this Agreement, or any other agreement or instrument relating thereto;

 

(ii)     the existence of any claim, counterclaim, set-off, defense or other right that the Applicable Borrower may have at any time against any actual or purported beneficiary or transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such actual or purported beneficiary or transferee may be acting), such Issuing Bank or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by such Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated transaction;

 

(iii)     any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under such Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under such Letter of Credit;

 

(iv)     any payment by the Issuing Bank under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by such Issuing Bank under such Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law; or

 

(v)     any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Applicable Borrower.

 

The Applicable Borrower shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to it and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with the Applicable Borrower’s instructions or other irregularity, the Applicable Borrower will immediately notify the applicable Issuing Bank. The Applicable Borrower shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against the applicable Issuing Bank and its correspondents unless such notice is given to the applicable Issuing Bank within one Business Day after the Applicable Borrower’s receipt of a copy of the applicable Letter of Credit or amendment.

 

76

 

(f)     Role of Issuing Bank. Each Revolving Credit Lender and each Revolving Credit Borrower agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, no Issuing Bank shall have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of the Issuing Banks, any Agent-Related Person nor any of the respective correspondents, participants or assignees of any Issuing Bank shall be liable to any Revolving Credit Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Revolving Credit Lenders or the Required Revolving Lenders, as applicable; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Letter of Credit Application. The Applicable Borrower hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any actual or purported beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Applicable Borrower from pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against any actual or purported beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of the Issuing Banks, any Agent-Related Person, nor any of the respective correspondents, participants or assignees of any Issuing Bank, shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in clauses (i) through (v) of Section 2.03(e); provided, however, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, the Applicable Borrower may have a claim against an Issuing Bank, any related Agent-Related Person, any of their respective correspondents, participants or assignees of such Issuing Bank or any Agent-Related Person, and they may be liable to the Applicable Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential, punitive, special, or exemplary, damages suffered by the Applicable Borrower which a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final, non-appealable judgment were caused by such Issuing Bank’s, any such Agent-Related Person’s, or any of such respective correspondents, participants or assignees of such Issuing Bank or of any Agent-Related Person’s willful misconduct or gross negligence or such Issuing Bank’s willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft or other demand for payment or certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the applicable Issuing Bank may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and such Issuing Bank shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason.

For purposes hereof, “Cash Collateralize” means to pledge and deposit with or deliver to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Issuing Banks and the Revolving Credit Lenders, as collateral for the L/C Obligations, cash or deposit account balances pursuant to documentation in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Banks (which documents are hereby consented to by the Revolving Credit Lenders). Derivatives of such term have corresponding meanings. Each Revolving Credit Borrower hereby grants to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Issuing Banks and the Revolving Credit Lenders and as collateral for its L/C Obligations, a security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein and all proceeds of the foregoing.

83

 

(c)     Notice of Interest Rate. Promptly after receipt of a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.02(a), the Administrative Agent shall give notice to the Applicable Borrower and each Lender of the interest rate determined by the Administrative Agent for purposes of clause (a) above.

 

(d)     Alternate Rate of Interest.

 

(i)     If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a LIBOR Advance:

 

(A)     the Administrative Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be presumed correct absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period; or

 

(B)     the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their Advances included in such LIBOR Advance for such Interest Period;

 

then the Administrative Agent shall give written notice (by facsimile transmission or electronic transmission (in .pdf format)) thereof to the Borrowers and the Lenders as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrowers and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (x) any request for the Conversion of a Base Rate Advance to, or continuation of any LIBOR Advance as, a LIBOR Advance shall be ineffective, and, in the case of any request for the continuation of a LIBOR Advance, such LIBOR Advance shall on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto be converted to an Base Rate Advance and (y) if any Notice of Borrowing requests a LIBOR Advance, such Borrowing shall be made as a Base Rate Advance.

 

(ii)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with a copy to the Borrowers) that they have determined, that:

 

(A)     adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for any requested Interest Period, including, without limitation, because the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or

 

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

 

84

 

then, 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 the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein) that has been broadly accepted by the syndicated loan market in the United States in lieu of the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable (any such proposed rate, a “LIBO Successor Rate”), together with any proposed LIBO Successor Rate Conforming Changes (but, for the avoidance of doubt, such related changes shall not include a reduction in the Applicable Margin); provided, that if such alternate rate of interest would be less than zero (or 1% during the Restricted Period), such rate shall be deemed to be zero (or 1% during the Restricted Period) for purposes of this Agreement, and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 9.01, any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the fifth Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrowers unless, prior to such time, the Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent notice that such Required Lenders do not accept such amendment.

 

If no LIBO Successor Rate has been determined and the circumstances under clause (A) above exist, the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain LIBOR Advances shall be suspended, (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Advances or Interest Periods). Upon receipt of such notice, any Borrower may revoke any pending request for a LIBOR Advance or, conversion to or continuation of LIBOR Advances (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Advances or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of Base Rate Advances in the amount specified therein.

The Borrowers hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation. A certificate as to the amount of such increased cost or Taxes, submitted to the Borrowers by such Lender Party, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

 

(b)     If any Lender Party determines that (i) compliance with any law or regulation or any guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law) or (ii) a Change in Law affects or would affect the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by such Lender Party or any corporation controlling such Lender Party and that the amount of such capital or liquidity is increased by or based upon the existence of such Lender Party’s commitment to lend or to issue, amend, or participate in Letters of Credit hereunder and other commitments of such type or the issuance, amendment, maintenance of or participation in the Letters of Credit (or similar contingent obligations), then, upon demand by such Lender Party or such corporation (with a copy of such demand to the Administrative Agent), the Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender Party, from time to time as specified by such Lender Party, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender Party in the light of such circumstances, to the extent that such Lender Party reasonably determines such increase in capital or liquidity to be allocable to the existence of such Lender Party’s commitment to lend or to issue, amend, or participate in Letters of Credit hereunder or to the issuance, amendment, maintenance of or participation in any Letters of Credit. A certificate as to such amounts submitted to the Borrowers by such Lender Party shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

 

87

 

(c)     If, with respect to any Eurocurrency Rate Advances, the Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent that the Eurocurrency Rate for any Interest Period for such Advances will not adequately reflect the cost to such Lenders of making, funding or maintaining their Eurocurrency Rate Advances for such Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith so notify the Borrowers and the Lenders, whereupon (i) each such Eurocurrency Rate Advance will automatically, on the last day of the then existing Interest Period therefor, Convert into a Base Rate Advance or if such Eurocurrency Rate Advance is denominated in a Committed Currency, be exchanged for an Equivalent in Dollars and Convert into a Base Rate Advance and (ii) the obligation of the Lenders to make, or to Convert Advances into, Eurocurrency Rate Advances shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers that such Lenders have determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist.

 

(d)     Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other Governmental Authority shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Eurocurrency Lending Office to perform its obligations hereunder to make Eurocurrency Rate Advances or Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advances, or to continue to fund or maintain Eurocurrency Rate Advances or Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advances hereunder, then, on notice thereof and demand therefor by such Lender to the Borrowers through the Administrative Agent, (i) each Eurocurrency Rate Advance will automatically, upon such demand, Convert into a Base Rate Advance or in the case of an Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advance or if such Eurocurrency Rate Advance is denominated in a Committed Currency, be exchanged for an Equivalent in Dollars and Convert into a Base Rate Advance and (ii) the obligation of the Lenders to make, or to Convert Advances into, Eurocurrency Rate Advances or Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advances, as applicable, shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers that such Lender has determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist; provided, however, that, before making any such demand, such Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Eurocurrency Lending Office if the making of such a designation would allow such Lender or its Eurocurrency Lending Office to continue to perform its obligations to make Eurocurrency Rate Advances or Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advances, as applicable, or to continue to fund or maintain Eurocurrency Rate Advances or Overnight Eurocurrency Rate Advances, as applicable, and would not, in the judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.

Section 1.11     Payments and Computations.

 

(a)     Each Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes, irrespective of any right of counterclaim or set-off (except as otherwise provided in Section 2.15), not later than 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the day when due (or, in the case of payments made by any Borrower or any Guarantor pursuant to Section 8.01, on the date of demand therefor) in the applicable currency to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Account in same day funds. The Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter cause like funds to be distributed (i) if such payment by the Applicable Borrower is in respect of principal, interest, commitment fees or any other Obligation then payable hereunder and under the Notes to more than one Lender Party, to such Lender Parties for the account of their respective Applicable Lending Offices ratably in accordance with the amounts of such respective Obligations then payable to such Lender Parties and (ii) if such payment by the Applicable Borrower is in respect of any Obligation then payable hereunder to one Lender Party, to such Lender Party for the account of its Applicable Lending Office, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Upon its acceptance of an Assignment and Acceptance and recording of the information contained therein in the Register pursuant to Section 9.07(d), from and after the effective date of such Assignment and Acceptance, the Administrative Agent shall make all payments hereunder and under the Notes in respect of the interest assigned thereby to the Lender Party assignee thereunder, and the parties to such Assignment and Acceptance shall make all appropriate adjustments in such payments for periods prior to such effective date directly between themselves.

 

(b)     If the Administrative Agent receives funds for application to the Obligations under the Loan Documents under circumstances for which the Loan Documents do not specify the Advances to which, or the manner in which, such funds are to be applied, the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to distribute such funds to each Lender Party ratably in accordance with such Lender Party’s proportionate share of the principal amount of all outstanding Advances and the Available Amount of all Letters of Credit then outstanding, in repayment or prepayment of such of the outstanding Advances or other Obligations owed to such Lender Party, and for application to such principal installments, as the Administrative Agent shall direct.

 

(c)     Each Borrower hereby authorizes each Lender Party, if and to the extent payment owed to such Lender Party is not made when due hereunder or, in the case of a Lender, under the Note held by such Lender, to charge from time to time against any or all of such Borrower’s accounts with such Lender Party any amount so due. Each of the Lender Parties hereby agrees to notify the Applicable Borrower promptly (and in any event within two (2) Business Days thereof) after any such setoff and application shall be made by such Lender Party; provided, however, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such charge.

 

(d)     All computations of interest based on the Base Rate, of fees and Letter of Credit commissions shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and all computations of interest based on the Eurocurrency Rate or the Federal Funds Rate shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days, in each case for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest, fees or commissions are payable. Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate, fee or commission hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

 

89

 

(e)     Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Notes 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 or commitment fee, as the case may be; provided, however, that, if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of Eurocurrency Rate Advances to be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next preceding Business Day.

 

(f)     Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to any Lender Party hereunder that the Applicable Borrower will not make such payment in full, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Applicable Borrower has made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent on such date and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each such Lender Party on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender Party. If and to the extent the Applicable Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent, each such Lender Party shall repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender Party together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender Party until the date such Lender Party repays such amount to the Administrative Agent, at a rate equal to (x) the Federal Funds Rate in the case of any amount denominated in Dollars or (y) the cost of funds incurred by the Administrative Agent in respect of such amount denominated in Foreign Currencies.

 

Section 1.12     Taxes. Except as required by applicable law, any and all payments by any Loan Party to or for the account of any Lender Party or any Agent hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.11 or the applicable provisions of such other Loan Document, if any, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, duties, deductions, withholdings (including backup withholding), assessments, fees or other charges imposed by any Governmental Authority, including any interest, additions to tax or penalties applicable thereto (collectively, “Taxes”). If any Loan Party shall be required by applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any other Loan Document to any Lender Party or any Agent, then (i) the applicable Loan Party shall be entitled to make all such deductions or withholdings and shall timely pay the full amount thereof to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and (ii) except in the case of Excluded Taxes, the sum payable by such Loan Party shall be increased as may be necessary so that after such Loan Party and the Administrative Agent have made all required deductions and withholding (including deductions and withholding applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.12) such Lender Party or such Agent, as the case may be, receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholding been made.

 

(b)     Each Loan Party shall timely pay any Other Taxes 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 such Other Taxes.

 

90

 

(c)     Except for any Luxembourg registration duties (droits d'enregistrement), payable in case of voluntary registration of any Loan Document with the Administration de l'Enregistrement et des Domaines in Luxembourg when such registration is not required to maintain, preserve, establish or enforce the rights of any Loan Party under any Loan Document, the Loan Parties shall, within 10 days after demand therefor, indemnify each Lender Party and each Agent for and hold them harmless against the full amount of (i) any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.12) imposed on or with respect to any payment made by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party under any Loan Document, (ii) without duplication, Other Taxes imposed on or paid by such Lender Party or such Agent, as the case may be, 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 Taxes and liabilities delivered to the Borrowers shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

 

(d)     Each Lender Party shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender Party (but only to the extent that the Loan Parties have not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender Party’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 9.07(g) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender Party, 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 Party by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender Party hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender Party under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender Party from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (d).

 

(e)     Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.12, the appropriate Loan Party shall furnish to the Administrative Agent, at its address referred to in Section 9.02, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing such payment, to the extent such a receipt is issued therefor, or other written proof of payment thereof that is reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

 

(f)     Documentation.

 

(i)     Any Lender Party 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 by a Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by such Borrower 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 Party, if reasonably requested by a Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by such Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable such Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender Party 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 Section 2.12(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in the Lender Party’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender Party to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

 

91

 

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

 

(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 Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals or, as permitted by applicable law, 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 such Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

 

1)     in the case of a Foreign Lender 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 Loan Document, executed originals or, as permitted by applicable law, copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, 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 Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

 

2)     executed originals or, as permitted by applicable law, copies of IRS Form W-8ECI;

 

3)     in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Internal Revenue Code Section 881(c) of the, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Internal Revenue Code Section 881(c)(3)(A), a “10 percent shareholder” of a Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Internal Revenue Code Section 881(c)(3)(C) (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals or, as permitted by applicable law, copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable; or

 

92

 

4)     to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals or, as permitted by applicable law, copies of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E-2 or Exhibit E-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 E-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 such Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals or, as permitted by applicable law, 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 such Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

 

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

 

(iii)     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.

 

93

 

(g)     If any Lender Party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes paid or reimbursed by any Loan Party pursuant to this Section 2.12 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.12), such Lender Party shall, as soon as reasonably practicable, pay to such Loan Party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of the indemnity payments made under this Section 2.12 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses in securing such refund. The Borrowers or other Loan Party, upon the request of such Lender Party, shall, as soon as reasonably practicable, repay to such Lender Party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such Lender Party is required to repay such refund to the relevant Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph, in no event will the Lender Party be required to pay any amount to a Loan Party the payment of which would place the Lender Party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the Lender 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 Lender Party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to a Loan Party or any other Person.

 

(h)     Each party’s obligations under this Section 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.

 

Section 1.13     Sharing of Payments, Etc. If any Lender Party shall obtain at any time any payment, whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set off, the exercise of remedies in respect of any Collateral or otherwise (other than pursuant to SectionSections 2.10, 2.12, 2.17(1), 9.04 or 9.07), (a) on account of Obligations due and payable to such Lender Party hereunder and under the Notes at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations due and payable to such Lender Party at such time (other than pursuant to SectionSections 2.10, 2.12, 2.17(1), 9.04 or 9.07) to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations due and payable to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time) of payments on account of the Obligations due and payable to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time obtained by all the Lender Parties at such time or (b) on account of Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender Party hereunder and under the Notes at such time (other than pursuant to SectionSections 2.10, 2.12, 2.17(1), 9.04 or 9.07) in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations owing to such Lender Party at such time (other than pursuant to SectionSections 2.10, 2.12, 2.17(1), 9.04 or 9.07) to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time) of payments on account of the Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time obtained by all of the Lender Parties at such time, such Lender Party shall forthwith purchase from the other Lender Parties such participations in the Obligations due and payable or owing to them, as the case may be, as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender Party to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided, however, that, if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender Party, such purchase from each other Lender Party shall be rescinded and such other Lender Party shall repay to the purchasing Lender Party the purchase price to the extent of such Lender Party’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the purchase price paid to such Lender Party to (ii) the aggregate purchase price paid to all Lender Parties) of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender Party’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such other Lender Party’s required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender Party) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender Party in respect of the total amount so recovered. Each Borrower agrees that any Lender Party so purchasing a participation from another Lender Party pursuant to this Section 2.13 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender Party were the direct creditor of the Applicable Borrower in the amount of such participation.

 

94

 

Section 1.14     Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of the Revolving Credit Advances, the Swing Line Advances and the Letters of Credit shall be utilized to provide financing for working capital, Capital Expenditures and other general corporate purposes of the Borrowers and their Subsidiaries. The proceeds of the Initial Term A Advances shall only be utilized to provide financing for general corporate purposes of the Term Loan Borrower and its Subsidiaries, including the repurchase and/or repayment of the 2021 Senior Notes. The proceeds of the 2018 New Term A Advances and the 2018 New Term B Advances shall be utilized to finance the GrazianoFairfield Acquisition and to pay all related fees and expenses.

 

Section 1.15     Defaulting Lenders. In the event that, at any time, (i) any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender, (ii) such Defaulting Lender shall owe a Defaulted Advance to any Borrower and (iii) such Borrower shall be required to make any payment hereunder or under any other Loan Document to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender, then such Borrower may, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, set off and otherwise apply the Obligation of such Borrower to make such payment to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender against the obligation of such Defaulting Lender to make such Defaulted Advance. In the event that, on any date, a Borrower shall so set off and otherwise apply its obligation to make any such payment against the obligation of such Defaulting Lender to make any such Defaulted Advance on or prior to such date, the amount so set off and otherwise applied by such Borrower shall constitute for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents an Advance by such Defaulting Lender made on the date under the Facility pursuant to which such Defaulted Advance was originally required to have been made pursuant to Section 2.01. Such Advance shall be considered, for all purposes of this Agreement, to comprise part of the Borrowing in connection with which such Defaulted Advance was originally required to have been made pursuant to Section 2.01, even if the other Advances comprising such Borrowing shall be Eurocurrency Rate Advances on the date such Advance is deemed to be made pursuant to this subsection (a). A Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent at any time such Borrower exercises its right of set-off pursuant to this subsection (a) and shall set forth in such notice (A) the name of the Defaulting Lender and the Defaulted Advance required to be made by such Defaulting Lender and (B) the amount set off and otherwise applied in respect of such Defaulted Advance pursuant to this subsection (a). Any portion of such payment otherwise required to be made by such Borrower to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender which is paid by such Borrower, after giving effect to the amount set off and otherwise applied by such Borrower pursuant to this subsection (a), shall be applied by the Administrative Agent as specified in subsection (b) or (c) of this Section 2.15.

 

95

 

(b)     In the event that, at any time, (i) any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender, (ii) such Defaulting Lender shall owe a Defaulted Amount to the Administrative Agent or any of the other Lender Parties and (iii) a Borrower shall make any payment as provided in Section 2.08 hereunder or under this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender, then the Administrative Agent may, on its behalf or on behalf of such other Lender Parties and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, apply at such time the amount so paid by such Borrower to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender to the payment of each such Defaulted Amount to the extent required to pay such Defaulted Amount. In the event that the Administrative Agent shall so apply any such amount to the payment of any such Defaulted Amount on any date, the amount so applied by the Administrative Agent shall constitute for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents payment, to such extent, of such Defaulted Amount on such date. Any such amount so applied by the Administrative Agent shall be retained by the Administrative Agent or distributed by the Administrative Agent to such other Lender Parties, ratably in accordance with the respective portions of such Defaulted Amounts payable at such time to the Administrative Agent and such other Lender Parties and, if the amount of such payment made by such Borrower shall at such time be insufficient to pay all Defaulted Amounts owing at such time to the Administrative Agent and the other Lender Parties, in the following order of priority:

 

(i)     first, to the Administrative Agent for any Defaulted Amount then owing to the Administrative Agent in its capacity as Administrative Agent; and

 

(ii)     second, to the Issuing Banks and the Swing Line Lender for any Defaulted Amounts then owing to them, in their capacities as such, ratably in accordance with such respective Defaulted Amounts then owing to the Issuing Banks and the Swing Line Lender; and

 

(iii)     third, to any other Lender Parties for any Defaulted Amounts then owing to such other Lender Parties, ratably in accordance with such respective Defaulted Amounts then owing to such other Lender Parties.

 

Any portion of such amount paid by a Borrower for the account of such Defaulting Lender remaining, after giving effect to the amount applied by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this subsection (b), shall be applied by the Administrative Agent as specified in subsection (c) of this Section 2.15.

 

96

 

(c)     In the event that, at any time, (i) any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender, (ii) such Defaulting Lender shall not owe a Defaulted Advance or a Defaulted Amount and (iii) a Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender Party shall be required to pay or distribute any amount hereunder or under any other Loan Document to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender, then such Borrower or such other Lender Party shall pay such amount to the Administrative Agent to be held by the Administrative Agent, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in escrow or the Administrative Agent shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, hold in escrow such amount otherwise held by it. Any funds held by the Administrative Agent in escrow under this subsection (c) shall be deposited by the Administrative Agent in an account with CITI, in the name and under the control of the Administrative Agent, but subject to the provisions of this subsection (c). The terms applicable to such account, including the rate of interest payable with respect to the credit balance of such account from time to time, shall be CITI’s standard terms applicable to escrow accounts maintained with it. Any interest credited to such account from time to time shall be held by the Administrative Agent in escrow under, and applied by the Administrative Agent from time to time in accordance with the provisions of, this subsection (c). The Administrative Agent shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, apply all funds so held in escrow from time to time to the extent necessary to make any Advances required to be made by such Defaulting Lender and to pay any amount payable by such Defaulting Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents to the Administrative Agent or any other Lender Party, as and when such Advances or amounts are required to be made or paid and, if the amount so held in escrow shall at any time be insufficient to make and pay all such Advances and amounts required to be made or paid at such time, in the following order of priority:

 

(i)     first, to the Administrative Agent for any amount then due and payable by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder in its capacity as Administrative Agent;

 

(ii)     second, to the Issuing Banks and the Swing Line Lender for any amounts then due and payable to them hereunder, in their capacities as such, by such Defaulting Lender, ratably in accordance with such respective amounts then due and payable to the Issuing Banks and the Swing Line Lender;

 

(iii)     third, to any other Lender Parties for any amount then due and payable by such Defaulting Lender to such other Lender Parties hereunder, ratably in accordance with such respective amounts then due and payable to such other Lender Parties; and

 

(iv)     fourth, to such Borrower for any Advance then required to be made by such Defaulting Lender pursuant to a Commitment of such Defaulting Lender.

 

In the event that any Lender Party that is a Defaulting Lender shall, at any time, cease to be a Defaulting Lender, any funds held by the Administrative Agent in escrow at such time with respect to such Lender Party shall be distributed by the Administrative Agent to such Lender Party and applied by such Lender Party to the Obligations owing to such Lender Party at such time under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents ratably in accordance with the respective amounts of such Obligations outstanding at such time.

 

(d)     In the event that, at any time, any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender such Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to receive any commitment fee for any period during which such Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and no Borrower shall be required to pay any such commitment fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to such Defaulting Lender).

 

97

 

(e)     The rights and remedies against a Defaulting Lender under this Section 2.15 are in addition to other rights and remedies that a Borrower may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Defaulted Advance and that the Administrative Agent or any Lender Party may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Defaulted Amount.

 

Section 1.16     Evidence of Debt. (a) The Advances made by each Lender shall be evidenced by one or more accounts or records maintained by such Lender and by the Administrative Agent in the ordinary course of business. The accounts or records maintained by the Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error of the amount of the Advances made by the Lenders to the Borrowers and the interest and payments thereon. Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligation of any Borrower hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to the Obligations. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error. Upon the request of any Lender made through the Administrative Agent, each Borrower shall execute and deliver to such Lender (through the Administrative Agent) a Note, which shall evidence such Lender’s Advances in addition to such accounts or records. Each Lender may attach schedules to its Note and endorse thereon the date, amount and maturity of its Advances and payments with respect thereto.

 

(b)     In addition to the accounts and records referred to in subsection (a), each Lender and the Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by the Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.

 

Section 1.17     Replacement of Certain Lenders. In the event a Lender (“Affected Lender”) shall have (a) become a Defaulting Lender under Section 2.15, (b) requested compensation from a Borrower under Section 2.12 with respect to Taxes or Other Taxes or with respect to increased costs or capital or under Section 2.10 or other additional costs incurred by such Lender which, in any case, are not being incurred generally by the other Lenders, or (c) delivered a notice pursuant to Section 2.10(d) claiming that such Lender is unable to extend Eurocurrency Rate Advances to a Borrower for reasons not generally applicable to the other Lenders, then (1) the Applicable Borrower may prepay the outstanding principal amount of such Affected Lender’s Advances in whole (together with accrued interest to the date thereof on the principal amount prepaid) pursuant to Section 2.06 and reduce the Commitment of such Affected Lender to zero (unless, within five (5) Business Days after receipt by the Affected Lender of notice from the Applicable Borrower that the Applicable Borrower intends to prepay and reduce the Commitment of the Affected Lender to zero, in the event that such Lender is an Affected Lender pursuant to (i) clause (a) above, such Lender no longer is a Defaulting Lender, (ii) clause (b) above, such Lender withdraws the request for compensation as set forth in clause (b) above or (iii) clause (c) above, such Lender withdraws the notice delivered pursuant to Section 2.10(d) claiming that such Lender is unable to extend Eurocurrency Rate Advances (as noted in clause (c) above) and extends such Eurocurrency Rate Advances to the Applicable Borrower) and such Affected Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Section 9.04, as well as to any fees accrued for its account hereunder and not paid, and shall continue to be obligated under Section 7.07 with respect to losses, obligations, liabilities, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, costs, expenses or disbursements for matters which occurred prior to the reduction of the Commitment of such Affected Lender, or (2) the Applicable Borrower or the Administrative Agent may make written demand on such Affected Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent in the case of a demand by the Applicable Borrower and a copy to the Applicable Borrower in the case of a demand by the Administrative Agent) for the Affected Lender to assign, and such Affected Lender shall use commercially reasonable efforts to assign pursuant to one or more duly executed Assignments and Acceptances within five (5) Business Days after the date of such demand, to one or more financial institutions that comply with the provisions of Section 9.07 which the Applicable Borrower or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, shall have engaged for such purpose (“Replacement Lender”), all of such Affected Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including, without limitation, its Commitment, all Advances owing to it, all of its participation interests in existing Letters of Credit, and its obligation to participate in additional Letters of Credit hereunder) in accordance with Section 9.07. The Administrative Agent is authorized to execute one or more of such Assignments and Acceptances as attorney-in-fact for any Affected Lender failing to execute and deliver the same within five (5) Business Days after the date of such demand. Further, with respect to such assignment, the Affected Lender shall have concurrently received, in cash, all amounts due and owing to the Affected Lender hereunder or under any other Loan Document; provided that upon such Affected Lender’s replacement, such Affected Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits, and subject to the obligations, of Sections 2.10, 2.12 and 9.04, as well as to any fees accrued for its account hereunder and not yet paid, and shall continue to be obligated under Section 7.07 with respect to losses, obligations, liabilities, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, costs, expenses or disbursements for matters which occurred prior to the date the Affected Lender is replaced.

Section 1.18     Incremental Facilities.  (a) Dana may at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date, by notice to the Administrative Agent (whereupon the Administrative Agent shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders), request one or more tranches of term loans (each an “Incremental Term Facility”) or one or more additional revolving facilities or an increase in the amount of the Revolving Credit Facility (each such additional facility or increase being an “Incremental Revolving Facility”; together with the Incremental Term Facilities, each an “Incremental Facility”), provided that (i) at the time and after the effectiveness of any Incremental Amendment referred to below, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing (or, in the event such Incremental Facility is incurred in connection with a Permitted Acquisition or Investment permitted hereunder, (1) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time a commitment to consummate such Permitted Acquisition or Investment is signed and (2) no Default or Event of Default under Section 6.01(a) or (f) shall have occurred and be continuing at the time such Permitted Acquisition or Investment is consummated), and (ii) the aggregate principal amount of the Incremental Facilities shall not exceed the greater of (x) (A) $750,000,000 less the aggregate principal amount of Incremental Facilities and Incremental Equivalent Debt incurred or issued in reliance on clause (x)(A) above, plus (B) an unlimited amount if, immediately after giving effect thereto (assuming on the effective date thereof (1) the funding in full of an Incremental Revolving Facility and (2) the proceeds from the funding of such Incremental Facility shall not be netted against the applicable amount of Consolidated Total Debt for purposes of the calculation of the First Lien Net Leverage Ratio or the Senior Secured Net Leverage Ratio, as applicable, set forth in this paragraph below), (I) in the case of an Incremental Advance secured by Liens that rank pari passu with the Liens securing the Term Facility or the Revolving Credit Facility, the First Lien Net Leverage Ratio determined on a pro forma basis would not exceed 1.50:1.00 and (II) in the case of an Incremental Advance secured by Liens that rank junior to the Liens securing the Term Facility or the Revolving Credit Facility, the Senior Secured Net Leverage Ratio determined on a pro forma basis would not exceed 2.50:1.00 (the sum of the amounts specified in this clause (ii) (less the aggregate principal amount of any Incremental Facility that has become effective on or prior to the date of determination) the “Available Incremental Amount”); it being acknowledged and agreed that, for the avoidance of doubt, the 2018 Term Loan B Facility (as defined in Amendment No. 2), the 2018 Term A Facility Upsize (as defined in Amendment No. 2), the 2018 Revolving Facility Upsize (as defined in Amendment No. 2) and the Revolving Facility Upsize (as defined in Amendment No. 3) are incurred under the incremental ratio prong set forth in clause (B)(I) above. Each Incremental Facility shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is not less than $50,000,000 unless approved by the Administrative Agent (provided that such amount may be less than $50,000,000 if such amount represents all remaining availability under the limit set forth in the preceding sentence).

 

99

 

(b)     (i) The maturity date of any Incremental Revolving Facility (the “Incremental Revolving Facility Maturity Date”) shall not be earlier than the commitment termination date of the Revolving Credit Facility nor have a weighted average life which is shorter than the then remaining weighted average life of the Revolving Credit Facility, (ii) the terms and conditions applicable to any Incremental Revolving Facility (other than with respect to maturity, which shall be governed by the preceding clause (i)) shall be, if not substantially consistent with the terms of the existing Revolving Credit Facility (other than interest rate margins and commitment/facility fees), shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent (it being understood that, to be extent that any financial maintenance covenant is added for the benefit of any Incremental Revolving Facility, no consent shall be required from the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders to the extent that such financial maintenance covenant is (1) also added for the benefit of the Revolving Credit Facility or (2) only applicable after the latest maturity of the Revolving Credit Facility) and (iii) the Applicable Margin and commitment/facility fees relating to any Incremental Revolving Facility shall be as agreed by Dana and the Lenders providing such Incremental Revolving Facility.

 

100

 

(c)     (i) The maturity date of any Incremental Term Facility (the “Incremental Term Facility Maturity Date”) shall not be earlier than the then Latest Maturity Date and the weighted average life to maturity of any Incremental Term Facility shall be no shorter than the market terms for facilities of equivalent tenor and similar nature at the time of such incurrence for a term facility, as determined in good faith by Dana and the Administrative Agent, (ii) any Incremental Term Facility will rank pari passu with the Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Facility in right of payment and security or, at the option of Dana, junior in right of security with the Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Facility, subject to the Intercreditor Agreement or intercreditor arrangements reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent), (iii) subject to clause (i) above, the amortization schedule applicable to any Incremental Term Facility shall be determined by Dana and the lenders thereunder, (iv) any fees payable in connection with any Incremental Facility shall be determined by Dana and the arrangers and/or lenders providing such Incremental Facility, (v) any Incremental Term Facility shall provide for mandatory prepayment events which shall be no more favorable to the lenders under such Incremental Term Facility than market terms for prepayment events for similar term loan facilities at the time of incurrence, as determined in good faith by Dana and the Administrative Agent, (vi) the all-in yield (whether in the form of interest rate margins, original issue discount, upfront fees or a LIBOR or Base Rate floor but excluding any structuring, commitment and arranger fees or other similar fees) applicable to any Incremental Facility will be determined by Dana and the lenders providing such Incremental Facility; provided that in the case of any Incremental Term Facility in the form of a “term loan B facility” that is secured on a pari passu basis with the 2018 New Term B Facility and incurred on or prior to the first anniversary of the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, except for any such Incremental Term Facility that has a maturity date that is at least two years after the Maturity Date of the 2018 New Term B Facility, the “effective yield” on the loans under such Incremental Term Facility (which shall be deemed to take account of interest rate benchmark floors, recurring fees and all upfront or similar fees or original issue discount (amortized over the shorter of (A) the weighted average life of such loans and (B) four years) payable to all lenders providing such loans, but exclusive of any arrangement, structuring or other fees payable in connection therewith that are not shared with all lenders providing such loans) may exceed the then “effective yield” on the loans under the 2018 New Term B Facility (determined on the same basis as provided in the preceding parenthetical), if the “effective yield” on the loans under the 2018 New Term B Facility (determined on the same basis as provided in the second preceding parenthetical) is increased, to the extent necessary, to be not less than 0.50% lower than the “effective yield” on such loans and (vii) except as otherwise required or permitted in clauses (i) through (vi) above, all other terms of such Incremental Facility, if not substantially consistent with the terms of the existing Revolving Credit Facility, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent other than (x) terms that are only applicable to periods after the Latest Maturity Date and (y) terms and conditions which do not apply to any then-existing Facility (it being understood that, to the extent that any financial maintenance covenant is added for the benefit of any Incremental Facility, no consent shall be required from the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders to the extent that such financial maintenance covenant is (1) also added for the benefit of the Revolving Credit Facility or (2) only applicable after the latest maturity of the Revolving Credit Facility).

 

(d)     Each Incremental Facility may be provided by any existing Lender or by any Eligible Assignee selected by Dana (any such other financial institution or fund being called an “Additional Lender”), provided that the Administrative Agent shall have consented (not to be unreasonably withheld) to such Lender’s or Additional Lender’s providing such Incremental Facility if such consent would be required under Section 9.07 for an assignment of Advances to such Lender or Additional Lender. Commitments in respect of Incremental Facilities shall become Commitments under this Agreement pursuant to an amendment (an “Incremental Amendment”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Loan Documents, executed by the Borrowers, each Lender agreeing to provide such Commitment, if any, each Additional Lender, if any, and the Administrative Agent. The Incremental Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and Dana, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.18. The effectiveness of any Incremental Amendment shall be subject (except as specifically set forth in this Section 2.18) to the satisfaction on the date thereof (each, an “Incremental Facility Closing Date”) of each of the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 (it being understood that (i) all references to the date of making of an extension of credit or similar language in such Section 3.02 shall be deemed to refer to the effective date of such Incremental Amendment, and (ii) in the case of an Incremental Facility being used to finance a Permitted Acquisition or a permitted Investment hereunder, the representations and warranties may be limited to customary “SunGard” provisions and the Lenders and Additional Lenders providing the applicable Incremental Facility may waive the making of any representation or warranty). The Borrowers will use the proceeds of the Incremental Facilities for any purpose not prohibited by this Agreement. No Lender shall be obligated to provide any Incremental Facility, unless it so agrees. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby agree that the minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement shall not apply to the transactions effected pursuant to this paragraph.

 

101

 

(e)     To the extent not already provided, the Administrative Agent shall provide notice to all of the Lenders of the proposed Incremental Amendment by not later than the same date established in the Incremental Amendment (if any) for applicable “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including without limitation, the Patriot Act.

 

(f)     This Section 2.18 shall supersede any provisions in Section 9.01 to the contrary. Notwithstanding any other provision of any Loan Document, the Loan Documents may be amended by the Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties, if necessary, to provide for terms applicable to each Incremental Facilities.

 

(g)     Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, solely during the Restricted Period no Incremental Facility or Incremental Equivalent Debt may be established that is secured by Liens that rank pari passu with the Liens securing the Obligations under the Loan Documents.

 

Section 1.19     Extended Facilities.

 

(a)     Dana may at any time and from time to time request that (x) all or any portion of the Revolving Credit Commitments (the “Existing Revolving Facility”) be converted to extend the scheduled maturity date(s) and/or termination date(s) of any payment of principal with respect to all or a portion of the loans or commitments in respect of the Existing Revolving Facility (such portion of the Revolving Credit Facility which has been so amended, an “Extended Revolving Facility”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.19 or (y) all or any portion of any Term Commitments or Term Advances (an “Existing Term Facility” and together with the Existing Revolving Facility, the “Existing Facilities”) be amended to extend the scheduled maturity date(s) and/or termination date(s) of any payment of principal with respect to all or a portion of such Term Advances or Term Commitments in respect of such Existing Term Facility (such portion of the applicable Term Facility which has been so amended, an “Extended Term Facility” and together with the Extended Revolving Facility, the “Extended Facilities”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.19. In order to establish any Extended Facility, Dana shall provide a notice to the Administrative Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders under the applicable Existing Facility) (an “Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Facility to be established which shall be substantially identical to the Existing Facility which is being converted except that:

 

(i)     all or any of the scheduled payments of principal (including the maturity date) and/or termination dates of the Extended Facility may be delayed to later dates than the scheduled payments of principal (including the maturity date) and/or termination dates of such Existing Facility to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Amendment;

 

102

 

(ii)     the interest margins and commitment fees with respect to the Extended Facility may be different than the interest margins and commitment fees for the Existing Facility and upfront fees may be paid to the Extending Lenders, in each case, to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Amendment;

 

(iii)     the Extension Amendment may provide for other covenants and terms that apply solely to any period after the latest final maturity or termination date of the Commitments in effect or Advances outstanding on the effective date of the Extension Amendment immediately prior to the establishment of such Extended Facility; and

 

(iv)     no commitments in respect of such Extended Facility may be optionally reduced or terminated prior to the date on which the commitments under the Existing Facility from which they were converted are terminated unless such optional reduction or termination is accompanied by a pro rata optional reduction of the commitments under such Existing Facility.

 

(b)     Any Extended Facility converted pursuant to any Extension Request shall be designated a series (an “Extension Series”) of Revolving Credit Commitments or the applicable Term Advances (in each case, as extended) for all purposes of this Agreement; provided that any Extended Revolving Facility or Extended Term Facility, as applicable, converted from an Existing Revolving Facility or Extended Term Facility, as applicable, may, to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Amendment, be designated as an increase in any previously established Extension Series with respect to such Existing Revolving Facility or Extended Term Facility, as applicable.

 

(c)     Dana shall provide the applicable Extension Request at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date on which Lenders under the Existing Facility are requested to respond. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Advances and Commitments of any Existing Facility converted into an Extended Facility pursuant to any Extension Request. Any Lender (an “Extending Lender”) wishing to have all or any portion of its Advances and Commitments under the Existing Facility subject to such Extension Request converted into Extended Facility, shall notify the Administrative Agent (an “Extension Election”) on or prior to the date specified in such Extension Request of the amount of its Advances and Commitments under the Existing Revolving Facility or the applicable Existing Term Facility, as the case may be, which it has elected to request be converted into the Extended Facility. In the event that the aggregate amount of commitments under an Existing Revolving Facility or Existing Term Facility subject to Extension Elections exceeds the amount of commitments under the Extended Facility requested pursuant to the Extension Request, commitments subject to Extension Elections shall be converted to commitments under an Extended Facility on a pro rata basis based on the amount of commitments included in each such Extension Election.

 

103

 

(d)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (i) an Extended Facility shall be in an aggregate minimum amount of $50,000,000 and an integral multiple of $1,000,000, (ii) any Extending Lender may extend all or any portion of its Commitment or Advances pursuant to one or more Extension Requests (subject to applicable proration in the case of over participation) (including the extension of any Extended Revolving Facility), and (iii) any Extended Facility and all obligations in respect thereof shall be Obligations under this Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents that are secured by the Collateral on a pari passu basis with all other Obligations under this Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

 

Extended Facilities shall be established pursuant to an amendment (an “Extension Amendment”) to this Agreement among the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and each Extending Lender providing an Extended Facility thereunder which shall be consistent with the provisions set forth in paragraph (a) above (but which shall not require the consent of any other Lender). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, such Extension Amendment shall include, amongst other specifications, (1) provisions to treat extended Commitments and Advances as a separate tranche or series and the incorporation of applicable class voting rights, (2) provisions detailing whether, and the manner in which, Letters of Credit shall be transferred to an Extended Revolving Facility or remain effective under the Existing Revolving Facility, (3) that any and all accrued interest or fees (including, but not limited to, such fees described in Section 2.08 of this Agreement) shall be due and payable upon the effectiveness of any Extension Amendment, and (4) provisions for the prepayment of any Advances outstanding under the Existing Facility on the date the Extension Amendment becomes effective (including payment of any breakage costs); provided, that Advances may then be re-borrowed pursuant to a same-day Notice of Borrowing under either the Existing Facility or the Extended Facility. Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that, upon the effectiveness of any Extension Amendment in accordance with its terms, (i) this Agreement shall be deemed amended as set forth therein, notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 9.07, and (ii) such Extension Amendment shall be binding on the Lenders, the Loan Parties and the other parties hereto. All Extended Facilities and all obligations in respect thereof shall be Obligations under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents that are secured by the Collateral on a pari passu basis with all other Obligations under the Credit Agreement and in connection with any Extension Amendment, notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 9.07 of this Agreement, the Loan Parties and the Collateral Agent shall enter into such amendments to the Collateral Documents as may be reasonably requested by the Collateral Agent (which shall not require any consent from any Lender) in order to ensure that the extended Commitments or Advances are provided with the benefit of the applicable Collateral Documents on a pari passu basis with the other Obligation. To the extent not already provided, the Administrative Agent shall provide notice to all of the Lenders of the proposed Extension Amendment by not later than the same date established in the Extension Amendment (if any) for applicable “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including without limitation, the Patriot Act.

Section 1.20     Refinancing Facilities.

 

(a)     Dana may, from time to time after the Closing Date, refinance or replace loans or commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility, any Term Facility or any Incremental Facility with one or more new term loan facilities (each, a “Refinancing Term Facility”) and new revolving credit facilities (each, a “Refinancing Revolving Facility”, together with any Refinancing Term Facility, the “Refinancing Facilities”) or with one or more additional series of senior unsecured notes or loans or senior secured notes or loans that will be secured by the Collateral on a pari passu basis with the Revolving Credit Facility, the Term Facility or applicable Incremental Facility or secured notes or loans that are junior in right of security in the Collateral (any such notes or loans, “Refinancing Notes” and together with the Refinancing Facilities, “Refinancing Debt”) pursuant to procedures reasonably specified by the Administrative Agent and reasonably acceptable to Dana; provided that (i) such Refinancing Debt will rank pari passu or junior in right of payment as the other Advances and Commitments hereunder, (ii) any Refinancing Term Facility or Refinancing Notes shall not mature prior to the maturity date of, or have a shorter weighted average life than, or have mandatory prepayment provisions (other than related to change of control offers) that could result in prepayments of such Refinancing Debt prior to, the loans under such Term Facility or Incremental Term Facility being refinanced, (iii) any Refinancing Revolving Facility shall not mature (or require commitment reductions or amortization) prior to the Maturity Date for the Revolving Credit Facility or the maturity date of the revolving commitments being replaced, (iv) such Refinancing Debt will not be Guaranteed or issued by any Person that is not a Loan Party, (v) the other terms and conditions, taken as a whole, of any such Refinancing Debt (excluding pricing (as to which no “most favored nation” clause shall apply) and optional prepayment or redemption terms) are substantially similar to, or not materially less favorable to Dana and its Restricted Subsidiaries, than, the terms and conditions, taken as a whole, applicable to the loans or revolving commitments being refinanced or replaced (except for covenants or other provisions applicable only to periods after the latest maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility, the applicable Term Facility or applicable Incremental Facility), (vi) with respect to (1) Refinancing Notes secured by Collateral or (2) any Refinancing Term Facility secured by Liens on the Collateral that are junior in priority to the Liens on the Collateral securing the Term Facility or Revolving Credit Facility, such agreements or Liens will be subject to an intercreditor agreement reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and (vii) the aggregate principal amount of any Refinancing Facility or Refinancing Notes shall not be greater than the aggregate principal amount (or committed amount) of the Revolving Credit Facility, the applicable Term Facility or applicable Incremental Facility being refinanced or replaced plus any fees, premiums, original issue discount and accrued interest associated therewith, and costs and expenses related thereto, and the Revolving Credit Facility or applicable Incremental Facility being refinanced or replaced will be permanently reduced substantially simultaneously with the issuance thereof.

 

(b)     Dana shall make any request for Refinancing Debt pursuant to a written notice to the Administrative Agent specifying in reasonable detail the proposed terms thereof. Refinancing Debt may be provided, by any existing Lender (but no existing Lender will have an obligation to make any Refinancing Debt and may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide such Refinancing Debt) or by any Additional Lender (each such existing Lender or Additional Lender providing such Refinancing Debt, a “Refinancing Lender”) provided that the Administrative Agent shall have consented (not to be unreasonably conditioned, withheld or delayed) to such Lender’s or Additional Lender’s providing such Refinancing Debt to the extent such consent, if any, would be required under Section 9.07 for an assignment to such Additional Lender.

 

105

 

(c)     Commitments in respect of Refinancing Facilities shall become Commitments under this Agreement pursuant to an amendment (a “Refinancing Amendment”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Loan Documents, executed by the Borrowers, each Lender agreeing to provide such Commitment, if any, each Additional Lender, if any, and the Administrative Agent. The Refinancing Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and Dana, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.20. The effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment shall be subject to the satisfaction on the date thereof (each, a “Refinancing Facility Closing Date”) of each of the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 (it being understood that all references to the date of making of an extension of credit or similar language in such Section 3.02 shall be deemed to refer to the effective date of such Refinancing Amendment) and such other conditions as the parties thereto shall agree.

 

(d)     Each class of Refinancing Debt incurred under this Section 2.20 shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is (x) not less than $50,000,000. Any Refinancing Amendment relating to a Refinancing Revolving Facility may provide for the issuance of Letters of Credit or the provision to the Revolving Credit Borrowers of Swing Line Advances, pursuant to any revolving credit facility established thereby, in each case on terms substantially equivalent to the terms applicable to Letters of Credit and Swing Line Advances under the Revolving Credit Commitments.

 

(e)     This Section 2.20 shall supersede any provisions in Section 9.01 to the contrary. Notwithstanding any other provision of any Loan Document, the Loan Documents may be amended by the Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties, if necessary, to provide for terms applicable to each Refinancing Amendment.
