Loan as provided in subsection 2.08(a) or (ii) in the case of any other amount, the Base Rate plus 2%.
 
(d)
Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of the Company hereunder shall
be subject to the limitation that payments of interest shall not be required, for any period for which interest is
computed hereunder, to the extent (but only to the extent) that contracting for or receiving such payment by the
respective Bank would be contrary to the provisions of any law applicable to such Bank limiting the highest rate
of interest which may be lawfully contracted for, charged or received by such Bank, and in such event the
Company shall pay such Bank interest at the highest rate permitted by applicable law.
 
SECTION 2.09.
Fees
.
 
(a)
Facility Fees
. The Company shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Bank a
facility fee in Dollars on such Bank’s Credit Exposure, computed on a quarterly basis in arrears on the last
Business Day of each calendar quarter, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Facility Fee Rate set forth in
the Pricing Schedule. Such facility fee shall accrue from the Closing Date to the Revolving Termination Date
and shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter commencing
on June 30, 2021 through the Revolving Termination Date, with the final payment to be made on the Revolving
Termination Date;
provided
 
that, in connection with any reduction or termination of the Credit Exposures
pursuant to Section
 
or
, the accrued facility fee calculated for the period ending on such date shall also
be paid on the date of such reduction or termination, with the next succeeding quarterly payment, if any, being
calculated on the basis of the period from the reduction date to such quarterly payment date. The facility fees
provided in this subsection shall accrue at all times after the above-mentioned commencement date, including at
any time during which one or more conditions in
 
are not met.
(b)
Administrative Agency Fee
. The Company shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the
Administrative Agent’s own account an agency fee and other sums in the amount and at the times set forth in
the Fee Letter with Bank of America and BofA Securities.
(c)
Letter of Credit Fees
. The Company shall pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of
the Banks ratably a letter of credit fee accruing daily on the aggregate undrawn amount of all outstanding
Letters of Credit at a rate per annum equal to the Letter of Credit Fee Rate for such day and (ii) to each Issuing
Bank for its own account, a letter of credit fronting fee accruing daily on the aggregate amount then available
for drawing under all Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank at such rate as may be mutually agreed
between the Company and such Issuing Bank from time to time. Such letter of credit fees shall accrue from the
Closing Date to the Revolving Termination Date (or,
 
if later, the latest date on which any Letter of Credit may
be drawn) and shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter
commencing on June 30, 2021 through the Revolving Termination Date (or such latest date), with the final
payment to be made on the Revolving Termination Date (or such latest date).
SECTION 2.10.
Computation of Fees and Interest
.
 
(a)
 
All computations of interest for Base Rate
Loans (including Base Rate Loans determined by reference to Term SOFR) and facility fees shall be made on
the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed.
 
All other computations of
interest and fees under this Agreement shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed,
which results in more interest or fees, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year;
provided
 
that if the Administrative Agent reasonably determines that a different basis of computation is the
market convention for a particular Alternative Currency, such different basis
 
shall be used. Interest and fees
shall accrue during each period during which interest or such fees are computed from the first day thereof to the
last day thereof.
 
(b)
The Administrative Agent will, with reasonable promptness, notify the Company and the Banks of
the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for Eurocurrency Rate Loans and Term SOFR Loans
 
upon
determination of such interest rate;
provided
 
that any failure to do so shall not relieve the Company of any
liability hereunder or provide the basis for any claim against the Administrative Agent.
 
At any time that Base
Rate Loans are outstanding, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Company and the Banks of any change in
Bank of America’s prime rate used in determining the Base Rate promptly following the public announcement
of such change.
(c)
Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent pursuant hereto shall be
conclusive and binding on the Company and the Banks in the absence of manifest error. The Administrative
Agent will, at the request of the Company or any Bank, deliver to the Company or the Bank, as the case may be,
a statement showing the quotations used by the Administrative Agent in determining any interest rate.
SECTION 2.11.
Payments by the Company
.
 
(a)
 
All payments (including prepayments) to be made
by the Company on account of principal, interest, fees and other amounts required hereunder shall be made
without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim; shall, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, be made to
the Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Banks at the Agent’s Payment Office,
 
and shall be made
(i) in the case of Dollar-Denominated Loans, in Dollars and in immediately available funds, no later than 2:00
p.m. (New York
 
City time) on the date specified herein and (ii) in the case of Alternative Currency Loans, in
the relevant Alternative Currency and in immediately available funds, no later than the Applicable Time
specified by the Administrative Agent on the dates specified herein. The Administrative Agent will promptly
distribute on such date to each Bank its Commitment Percentage (or other applicable share as expressly
provided herein) of such principal, interest, fees or other amounts, in like funds as received. Any payment
which is received by the Administrative Agent later than (i) 2:00 p.m. (New York
 
City time), in the case of
payments in Dollars, or (ii) the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent in the case of payments
in Alternative Currencies, shall be deemed to have been received on the immediately succeeding Business Day
and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue.
 
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the
Administrative Agent may require that any payments due under this Agreement be made in the United States.
(b)
Whenever any payment hereunder 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 interest or fees, as the case may be; subject to the provisions set forth in the
definition of “Interest Period” herein.
 
(c)
 
Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Company prior to the date
on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Banks hereunder that the
Company will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Company has made such
payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the
Banks the amount due.
With respect to
any payment that
the Administrative Agent makes for the account of the Banks
hereunder as to which the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent
manifest error) that any of the following applies (such payment referred to as the “
Rescindable Amount
”): (1)
the Company has not in fact made such payment; (2) the Administrative Agent has made a payment in excess of
the amount so paid by the Company (whether or not then owed); or (3) the Administrative Agent has for any
reason otherwise erroneously made such payment; then each of the Banks severally agrees to repay to the
Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount so distributed to such Bank, in
immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is
distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal
Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on
interbank compensation.
 
A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Bank or the Company with respect to any amount owing
under this clause (c) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
SECTION 2.12.
Payments by the Banks to the Agent
.
 
(a)
 
Unless the Administrative Agent
shall have received notice from a Bank on the Closing Date or, with respect to each Borrowing after the Closing
Date, prior to 2:00 p.m. (New York
 
City time) on the date of any proposed Borrowing, that such Bank will not
make available to the Administrative Agent as and when required hereunder for the account of the Company the
amount of that Bank’s Commitment Percentage of the Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that
each Bank has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds on the
Borrowing date and the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be so required), in reliance upon such
assumption, make available to the Company on such date a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Bank has
not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable
Bank and the Company severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such
corresponding amount in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the
date such amount is made available to the Company to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative
Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Bank, the Overnight Rate, plus any administrative,
processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing,
and (B) in the case of a payment to be made by the Company, the interest rate applicable to Base Rate Loans or
in the case of Alternative Currencies in accordance with such market practice, in each case, as applicable.
(b)
The failure of any Bank to make any Loan on any date of borrowing shall not relieve any other
Bank of any obligation hereunder to make a Loan on the date of such borrowing, but no Bank shall be
responsible for the failure of any other Bank to make the Loan to be made by such other Bank on the date of
any borrowing.
 
SECTION 2.13.
Sharing of Payments, Etc
.
 
(a)
 
If, other than as expressly provided elsewhere
herein, any Bank shall obtain on account of the Loans made by it, or the Letter of Credit Liabilities held by it,
any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary,
 
through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) in
excess of its Commitment Percentage of payments on account of the Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities
obtained by all the Banks, such Bank shall forthwith (i) notify the Administrative Agent of such fact, and (ii)
purchase from the other Banks such participations in the Loans made by them and the Letter of Credit
Liabilities held by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Bank 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 the purchasing Bank, such purchase shall to that extent be rescinded and each other Bank shall
repay to the purchasing Bank the purchase price paid therefor, together with an amount equal to such paying
Bank’s Commitment Percentage (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such paying Bank’s
 
required
repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Bank) of any interest or other amount paid
or payable by the purchasing Bank in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Company agrees that any
Bank so purchasing a participation from another Bank pursuant to this
 
may, to the fullest extent
permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off,
 
but subject to
)
with respect to such participation as fully as if such Bank were the direct creditor of the Company in the amount
of such participation. The Administrative Agent will keep records (which shall be conclusive and binding in the
absence of manifest error) of participations purchased pursuant to this
 
and will in each case notify
the Banks following any such purchases or repayments.
 
(b)
 
If any Bank shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section
,
,
(a) or
, then the Administrative Agent may,
 
in its discretion and notwithstanding any contrary provision
hereof, (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Bank for
the benefit of the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Bank to satisfy such Bank’s obligations to it under such
Section until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid, and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated
account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Bank under any such
Section, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by the Administrative Agent
in its discretion.
SECTION 2.14
. Increased Commitments; Additional Banks.
 
(a)
 
From time to time the
Company may, upon at least five days’ notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly provide a
copy of such notice to the Banks), increase the Aggregate Revolving Commitments by an amount not less than
$10,000,000 (the amount of any such increase, the “
Increased Revolving Commitments
”).
(b)
To effect such an increase,
 
the Company may designate one or more of the existing Banks or other
financial institutions acceptable to the Administrative Agent and each Issuing Bank which at the time agree to
(i) in the case of any such Person that is an existing Bank, increase its Revolving Commitment and (ii) in the
case of any other such Person (an “
Additional Bank
”), become a party to this Agreement with a Revolving
Commitment of not less than $10,000,000.
(c)
Any increase in the Revolving Commitments pursuant to this
 
shall be subject to
satisfaction of the following conditions:
(i)
before and after giving effect to such increase, all representations and warranties
contained in
 
shall be true as of the date of such increase (except to the extent such
representations and warranties expressly refer to an earlier date, in which case they shall be true as of
such earlier date);
(ii)
at the time of such increase, no Default shall have occurred and be continuing or would
result from such increase;
 
 
(iii)
after giving effect to such increase, the increases in the Aggregate Revolving
Commitments made pursuant to this
, shall not exceed $1,000,000,000; and
(iv)
at least three Business Days prior to the effectiveness of any such increase, the Company,
to the extent it qualifies as a “legal entity customer” under the Beneficial Ownership Regulation shall
have delivered, to each Bank that so requests, a Beneficial Ownership Certification.
 
(d)
If the Aggregate Revolving Commitments are increased in accordance with this Section 2.14, the
Administrative Agent and the Company shall determine the effective date.
 
As a condition to such increase, the
Administrative Agent shall have received
 
(i) an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the
Administrative Agent signed by the Company, by each Additional Bank and by each other Bank whose
Revolving Commitment is to be increased, setting forth the new Revolving Commitments of such Banks and
setting forth the agreement of each Additional Bank to become a party to this Agreement and to be bound by all
the terms and provisions hereof, (ii) such evidence of appropriate corporate authorization on the part of the
Company with respect to the Increased Revolving Commitments and such opinions of counsel for the Company
with respect to the Increased Revolving Commitments as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request and
(iii) a certificate of the Company stating that the conditions set forth in subsection
 
above have been satisfied.
(e)
Upon any increase in the Aggregate Revolving Commitments pursuant to this

respective Letter of Credit Liabilities of the Banks shall be redetermined as of the effective date of such increase
and (ii) within five Business Days, in the case of any group of Base Rate Loans then outstanding, and at the end
of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto, in the case of any Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term
SOFR Loans then outstanding, the Company shall prepay such Loans in their entirety and, to the extent the
Company elects to do so and subject to the conditions specified in
, the Company shall reborrow the
Loans from the Banks in proportion to their respective Revolving Commitments after giving effect to such
increase, until such time as all outstanding Loans are held by the Banks in such proportion.
SECTION 2.15
. Letters of Credit
.
(a)
Commitment to Issue Letters of Credit.
 
Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Issuing
Bank agrees to issue Letters of Credit from time to time in Dollars up to 30 days prior to the Revolving
Termination Date upon the request of the Company;
provided
 
that, immediately after each Letter of Credit is
issued (i) the Total Outstanding Amount shall not exceed the Aggregate Revolving Commitment and (ii) the
aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities shall not exceed $50,000,000;
provided
 
that no Bank shall
be obligated for any amount in excess of its Revolving Commitment. Upon the date of issuance by an Issuing
Bank of a Letter of Credit, such Issuing Bank shall be deemed, without further action by any party hereto, to
have sold to each Bank, and each Bank shall be deemed, without further action by any party hereto, to have
purchased from the Issuing Bank, a participation in such Letter of Credit and the related Letter of Credit
Liabilities in the proportion its Revolving Commitment bears to the Aggregate Revolving Commitment.
 
(b)
Method for Issuance; Terms;
 
Extensions
.
 
(i) The Company shall give the Issuing Bank notice in
the form of a Letter of Credit Application, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the
Company, at least three Business Days (or such shorter notice as may be acceptable to the Issuing Bank in its
discretion) prior to the requested issuance of a Letter of Credit (or, in the case of renewal or extension, prior to
the Issuing Bank’s deadline for notice of nonextension) specifying the date such Letter of Credit is to be issued
(or, as the case may be, extended or renewed), and describing the terms of such Letter of Credit and the nature
of the transactions to be supported thereby. Such Letter of Credit Application may be sent by facsimile, by
United States mail, by overnight courier, by electronic transmission using the system provided by the Issuing
Bank, by personal delivery or by any other means acceptable to the Issuing Bank.
 
Upon receipt of a Letter of
Credit Application, the Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative
Agent shall promptly notify each Bank of the contents thereof and of the amount of such Bank’s participation in
such Letter of Credit.
(ii)
The obligation of any Issuing Bank to issue each Letter of Credit shall, in addition to the
conditions precedent set forth in
, be subject to the conditions precedent that such Letter of
Credit shall be in such form and contain such terms as shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Issuing
Bank and that the Company shall have executed and delivered such other customary instruments and
agreements relating to such Letter of Credit as the Issuing Bank shall have reasonably requested. The
Company shall also pay to the Issuing Bank for its own account issuance, drawing, amendment,
settlement and extension charges, if any, in the amounts
 
and at the times as agreed between the
Company and the Issuing Bank.
(iii)
The extension or renewal of any Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be an issuance of
such Letter of Credit, and if any Letter of Credit contains a provision pursuant to which it is deemed to
be extended unless notice of termination is given by the Issuing Bank, the Issuing Bank shall timely give
such notice of termination unless it has theretofore timely received a Letter of Credit Application and the
other conditions to issuance of a Letter of Credit have also theretofore been met with respect to such
extension. Each Letter of Credit shall expire at or before the close of business on the date that is one
year after such Letter of Credit is issued (or, in the case of any renewal or extension thereof, one year
after such renewal or extension);
provided
 
that (x) a Letter of Credit may contain a provision pursuant to
which it is deemed to be extended on an annual basis unless notice of termination is given by the Issuing
Bank and (y) in no event will a Letter of Credit expire (including pursuant to a renewal or extension
thereof) on a date later than the fifth Business Day prior to the Revolving Termination Date.
(iv)
The Issuing Bank shall not 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 the Issuing Bank from issuing the Letter of Credit, or
any law applicable to the Issuing Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the
force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over the Issuing Bank shall
prohibit, or request that the Issuing Bank refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally
or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon the Issuing Bank with respect to the
Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which the Issuing Bank is not
otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon the
Issuing Bank any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing
Date and which the Issuing Bank in good faith deems material to it; or
(B)
the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of the
Issuing Bank applicable to letters of credit generally.
 
(c)
Payments; Reimbursement Obligations
.
 
(i) Upon receipt from the beneficiary of any Letter of
Credit of any notice of a drawing under such Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank shall notify the Administrative
Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Company and each other Bank as to the amount
to be paid as a result of such demand or drawing and the date such payment is to be made by the Issuing Bank
(the “
Payment Date
”). The Company shall be irrevocably and unconditionally obligated to reimburse the
Issuing Bank for any amounts paid by the Issuing Bank upon any drawing under any Letter of Credit, without
presentment, demand, protest or other formalities of any kind. Such reimbursement shall be due on the Payment
Date;
provided
 
that no such payment shall be due from the Company any earlier than the date of receipt by it of
notice of its obligation to make such payment (or, if such notice is received by the Company after 10:00 a.m.
(New York
 
City time) on any date, on the next succeeding Business Day); and
provided
,
further
 
that if and to
the extent any such reimbursement is not made by the Company in accordance with this clause
 
or clause
below on the Payment Date, then (irrespective of when notice thereof is received by the Company), such
Reimbursement Obligation shall bear interest, payable on demand, for each day from and including the
Payment Date to but not including the date such Reimbursement Obligation is paid in full at a rate per annum
equal to the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans for such day.
(ii)
If the Revolving Commitments remain in effect on the Payment Date, all such amounts
paid by the Issuing Bank and remaining unpaid by the Company after the date and time required by
clause (i) above (a “
Reimbursement Obligation
”) shall, if and to the extent that the amount of such
Reimbursement Obligation would be permitted as a Borrowing pursuant to
, and unless the
Company otherwise instructs the Administrative Agent by not less than one Business Day’s prior notice,
convert automatically to Base Rate Loans on the date such Reimbursement Obligation arises. The
Administrative Agent shall, on behalf of the Company (which hereby irrevocably directs the
Administrative Agent so to act on its behalf), give notice no later than 12:00 noon (New York
 
City time)
on such date requesting each Bank to make, and each Bank hereby agrees to make, a Base Rate Loan, in
an amount equal to such Bank’s pro rata share of the Reimbursement Obligation with respect to which
such notice relates. Each Bank shall make such Loan available to the Administrative Agent at its address
referred to in
 
in immediately available funds, not later than 3:00 p.m. (New York
 
City
time), on the date specified in such notice. The Administrative Agent shall pay the proceeds of such
Loans to the Issuing Bank, which shall immediately apply such proceeds to repay the Reimbursement
Obligation.
(iii)
To the extent a Reimbursement Obligation is not funded by a Bank pursuant to
 
clause
above, such Bank will pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Bank,
immediately upon the Issuing Bank’s demand at any time during the period commencing after such
Reimbursement Obligation arises until reimbursement therefor in full by the Company, an amount equal
to such Bank’s pro rata share of such Reimbursement Obligation, together with interest on such amount
for each day from the date of the Issuing Bank’s demand for such payment (or,
 
if such demand is made
after 1:00 p.m. (New York
 
City time) on such date, from the next succeeding Business Day) to the date
of payment by such Bank of such amount at a rate of interest per annum equal to the applicable
Overnight Rate from time to time in effect, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees
customarily charged by the Issuing Bank in connection with the foregoing. The Issuing Bank will pay to
each Bank ratably all amounts received from the Company for application in payment of its
Reimbursement Obligations in respect of any Letter of Credit, but only to the extent such Bank has
made payment to the Issuing Bank in respect of such Letter of Credit pursuant hereto;
provided
 
that in
the event such payment received by the Issuing Bank is required to be returned under any of the
circumstances described in Section 10.06, such Bank will return to the Issuing Bank any portion thereof
previously distributed to it by the Issuing Bank, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to
the date such amount is returned by such Bank, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight
Rate from time to time in effect.
 
(d)
Obligations Absolute
. The obligations of the Company and each Bank under subsection
 
above
shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement, under all circumstances whatsoever, including without limitation the following circumstances:
(i)
any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any Letter of Credit or any
document related hereto or thereto;
(ii)
any amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from all or any of the provisions
of this Agreement or any Letter of Credit or any document related hereto or thereto, provided by any
party affected thereby;
(iii)
the use which may be made of the Letter of Credit by, or any acts or omission of, a
beneficiary of a Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom the beneficiary may be acting);
(iv)
the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other rights that the Company may have at
any time against a beneficiary of a Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom the beneficiary may be
acting), any Bank (including the Issuing Bank) or any other Person, whether in connection with this
Agreement or the Letter of Credit or any document related hereto or thereto or any unrelated transaction;
(v)
any statement or any other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be
forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any
respect whatsoever;
(vi)
payment under a Letter of Credit against presentation to the Issuing Bank of documents
that do not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit;
(vii)
any termination of the Revolving Commitments prior to, on or after the Payment Date for
any Letter of Credit, whether at the scheduled termination thereof, by operation of
 
or
otherwise; or
(viii)
any other act or omission to act or delay of any kind by any Bank (including the Issuing
Bank), the Administrative Agent or any other Person or any other event or circumstance whatsoever that
might, but for the provisions of this subsection
, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of or
defense to the Company’s or the Bank’s
 
obligations hereunder.
(e)
Applicability of ISP and UCP; Limitation of Liability
.
 
Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the
Issuing Bank and the Company when a Letter of Credit is issued, the rules of the ISP shall apply to each
standby Letter of Credit.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issuing Bank shall not be responsible to the
Company for, and the Issuing Bank’s
 
rights and remedies against the Company shall not be impaired by, any
action or inaction of the Issuing Bank required or permitted under any law, order,
 
or practice that is required or
permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including the law or any order of a
jurisdiction where the Issuing Bank or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP,
 
as
applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the ICC Banking
Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association
(BAFT-IFSA), or
 
the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit
chooses such law or practice.
 
(f)
Indemnification; Expenses
.
 
(i) The Company hereby indemnifies and holds harmless each Bank
(including each Issuing Bank) and the Administrative Agent from and against any and all claims, damages,
losses, liabilities, costs or expenses which it may reasonably incur in connection with a Letter of Credit issued
pursuant to this
;
provided
 
that the Company shall not be required to indemnify any Bank or the
Administrative Agent for any claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses, to the extent finally
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been caused by the gross negligence or willful
misconduct of such Person.
(ii)
None of the Banks (including, subject to subsection
 
below, an Issuing Bank) nor the
Administrative Agent nor any of their officers or directors or employees or agents shall be liable or
responsible, by reason of or in connection with the execution and delivery or transfer of or payment or
failure to pay under any Letter of Credit, including without limitation any of the circumstances
enumerated in subsection
 
above;
provided
 
that, notwithstanding subsection
 
above, the Company
shall have a claim for direct (but not consequential) damage suffered by it, to the extent finally
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been caused by (x) the Issuing Bank’s gross
negligence or willful misconduct in determining whether documents presented under any Letter of
Credit complied with the terms of such Letter of Credit or (y) the Issuing Bank’s failure to pay under
any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it of documents strictly complying with the terms and
conditions of the Letter of Credit;
provided
,
 
further
 
that each Bank shall have a claim for direct (but not
consequential) damage suffered by it, to the extent finally determined by a court of competent
jurisdiction to have been caused by the Issuing Bank’s gross negligence or willful misconduct in
determining whether documents presented under any Letter of Credit complied with the terms of such
Letter of Credit. The parties agree that, with respect to documents presented which appear on their face
to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank may, in its
discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further
investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make
payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such
Letter of Credit.
(iii)
Nothing in this subsection
 
is intended to limit the obligations of the Company under
any other provision of this Agreement. To the extent the Company does not indemnify an
 
Issuing Bank
as required by this subsection, the Banks agree to do so ratably in accordance with their Revolving
Commitments.
(g)
Stop Issuance Notice
. If the Majority Banks determine at any time that the conditions set forth in
 
would not be satisfied in respect of a Borrowing at such time, then the Majority Banks may request
that the Administrative Agent issue a “Stop Issuance Notice”, and the Administrative Agent shall issue such
notice to each Issuing Bank. Such Stop Issuance Notice shall be withdrawn upon a determination by the
Majority Banks that the circumstances giving rise thereto no longer exist. No Letter of Credit shall be issued
while a Stop Issuance Notice is in effect. The Majority Banks may request issuance of a Stop Issuance Notice
only if there is a reasonable basis therefor, and shall consider reasonably and in good faith a request from the
Company for withdrawal of the same on the basis that the conditions in
 
are satisfied;
provided
 
that
the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Banks may and shall conclusively rely upon any Stop Issuance Notice
while it remains in effect.
 
(h)
Other Documentation
. If the terms and conditions of any form of letter of credit application or
other agreement submitted by the Company to or entered into by the Issuing Bank relating to any Letter of
Credit are not consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the terms and conditions of this
Agreement shall control;
provided
 
that, to the extent the Issuing Bank so agrees in such other documentation, its
liabilities and responsibilities in connection with a Letter of Credit may be governed thereby rather than by
clause
 
of subsection
 
above, but such agreement by the Issuing Bank may not directly or indirectly alter
the rights and obligations of any other Bank under this Agreement.
SECTION 2.16.
Currency Equivalents.
(a) The Administrative Agent shall determine the Spot Rates as
of each Revaluation Date to be used for calculating Dollar Amount of Borrowings and Total Outstanding
Amounts denominated in Alternative Currencies.
 
Such Spot Rates shall become effective as of such
Revaluation Date and shall be the Spot Rates employed in converting any amounts between the applicable
currencies until the next Revaluation Date to occur.
 
Except for purposes of financial statements delivered by
the Company hereunder or calculating financial covenants hereunder or except as otherwise provided herein,
the applicable amount of any currency (other than Dollars) for purposes of the Loan Documents shall be such
Dollar Amount as so determined by the Administrative Agent.
(b)
 
Wherever in this Agreement in connection with a Borrowing, conversion, continuation or
prepayment of a Eurocurrency Rate Loan, an amount, such as a required minimum or multiple amount, is
expressed in Dollars, but such Borrowing or Eurocurrency Rate Loan is denominated in an Alternative
Currency, such amount shall be the relevant Alternative Currency Equivalent of such Dollar amount (rounded to
the nearest unit of such Alternative Currency, with 0.5 of a unit being rounded upward), as determined by the
Administrative Agent.
(c)
 
The Administrative Agent does not warrant, nor accept responsibility, nor shall the
Administrative Agent have any liability with respect to the administration, submission or any other matter
related to the rates in the definition of “Eurocurrency Rate” and “Term SOFR”, or with respect to any rate that
is an alternative or replacement for or successor to any of such rate (including, without limitation, any
Successor Rate) or the effect of any of the foregoing, or of any Conforming Changes.
 
SECTION 2.17.
Sustainability Adjustments.
(a) Following the date on which the Company provides a
Pricing Certificate in respect of the most recently ended fiscal year, (i) the Applicable Margin and the Letter of
Credit Fee Rate shall be increased or decreased (or neither increased nor decreased), as applicable, pursuant to
the Sustainability Margin Adjustment as set forth in such Pricing Certificate and (ii) the applicable Facility Fee
Rate set forth in the Pricing Schedule shall be increased or decreased (or neither increased nor decreased), as
applicable, pursuant to the Sustainability Fee Adjustment as set forth in such Pricing Certificate. For purposes
of the foregoing, (A) the Sustainability Margin Adjustment and the Sustainability Fee Adjustment shall be
determined as of the fifth Business Day following receipt by the Administrative Agent of a Pricing Certificate
delivered pursuant to Section 6.02(d) based upon the KPI Metrics set forth in such Pricing Certificate and the
calculations of the Sustainability Margin Adjustment and the Sustainability Fee Adjustment, as applicable,
therein (such day, the “
Sustainability Pricing Adjustment Date
”) and (B) each change in the Applicable
Margin,
 
the Facility Fee Rate and the Letter of Credit Fee Rate resulting from a Pricing Certificate shall be
effective during the period commencing on and including the applicable Sustainability Pricing Adjustment Date
and ending on the date immediately preceding the next such Sustainability Pricing Adjustment Date (or, in the
case of non-delivery of a Pricing Certificate, the last day such Pricing Certificate could have been delivered
pursuant to the terms of Section 6.02(d)).
(b)
For the avoidance of doubt, only one Pricing Certificate may be delivered in respect of any fiscal
year. It is further understood and agreed that, subject to the second to last paragraph of Section 10.01, the
Applicable Margin and Letter of Credit Fee Rate will never be reduced or increased by more than 4.0 basis
points (such eight basis point spread, the “
Eight Basis Point Sustainability Margin Adjustment Spread
”)
pursuant to the Sustainability Margin Adjustment and that the Facility Fee Rate will never be reduced or
increased by more than 1.0 basis point (such two basis point spread, the “
Two
 
Basis Point Sustainability Fee
Adjustment Spread
”) pursuant to the Sustainability Fee Adjustment, during any fiscal year. For the avoidance
of doubt, any adjustment to the Applicable Margin,
 
Facility Fee Rate or Letter of Credit Fee Rate by reason of
meeting one or both KPI Metrics in any year shall not be cumulative year-over-year.
 
Each applicable
adjustment shall only apply until the date on which the next Pricing Certificate is delivered or required to be
delivered pursuant to Section 6.02(d).
(c)
It is hereby understood and agreed that if no such Pricing Certificate is delivered by the
Company by the time required pursuant to Section 6.02(d), (i) the Sustainability Fee Adjustment will be
positive 1.0 basis points and (ii) the Sustainability Margin Adjustment will be positive 4.0 basis points,
commencing on the last day such Pricing Certificate was required to have been delivered and continuing until
the Company delivers a Pricing Certificate for the applicable fiscal year to the Administrative Agent.
 
 
 
(d)
If (i)(A) the Company or any Bank becomes aware of any material inaccuracy in the
Sustainability Margin Adjustment, the Sustainability Fee Adjustment, or the KPI Metrics as reported in a
Pricing Certificate (any such material inaccuracy, a “
Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy
”) and, in the case of any
Bank, such Bank delivers, not later than 10 Business Days after obtaining knowledge thereof, a written notice to
the Administrative Agent describing such Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy in reasonable detail (which description
shall be shared with each Bank and the Company), or (B) the Company and the Banks agree that there was a
Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy at the time of delivery of a Pricing Certificate, and (ii) a proper calculation of the
Sustainability Margin Adjustment, the Sustainability Fee Adjustment or the KPI Metrics would have resulted in
an increase in the Applicable Margin,
 
the Facility Fee Rate or Letter of Credit Fee Rate for any applicable
period, the Company shall be obligated to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable
Banks promptly on demand by the Administrative Agent (or, after the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry
of an order for relief with respect to the Company under the Bankruptcy Code (or any comparable event under
non-U.S. Debtor Relief Laws), automatically and without further action by the Administrative Agent or any
Bank), but in any event within 10 Business Days after the Company has received written notice of, or has
agreed in writing that there was, a Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy, an amount equal to the excess of (1) the
amount of interest and fees that should have been paid for such period over (2) the amount of interest and fees
actually paid for such period. If the Company becomes aware of any Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy and, in
connection therewith, if a proper calculation of the Sustainability Margin Adjustment, the Sustainability Fee
Adjustment or the KPI Metrics would have resulted in a decrease in the Applicable Margin,
 
the Facility Fee
Rate and the Letter of Credit Fee Rate for any period, then, upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of notice
from the Company of such Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy (which notice shall include corrections to the
calculations of the Sustainability Margin Adjustment, the Sustainability Fee Adjustment or the KPI Metrics, as
applicable), commencing on the Business Day following receipt by the Administrative Agent of such notice, the
Applicable Margin,
 
the Facility Fee Rate and the Letter of Credit Fee Rate shall be adjusted to reflect the
corrected calculations of the Sustainability Margin Adjustment, the Sustainability Fee Adjustment or the KPI
Metrics, as applicable.
It is understood and agreed that any Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy with respect to any applicable period
shall not constitute a Default or Event of Default;
provided, that
, the Company complied with the terms of this
Section 2.17(d) with respect to such Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
herein, unless such amounts shall be due upon the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief
with respect to the Company under the Bankruptcy Code (or any comparable event under non U.S. Debtor
Relief Laws), (a) any additional amounts required to be paid pursuant the immediate preceding paragraph shall
not be due and payable until a written demand is made for such payment by the Administrative Agent in
accordance with such paragraph, (b) any nonpayment of such additional amounts prior to or upon such demand
for payment by Administrative Agent shall not constitute a Default (whether retroactively or otherwise) and (c)
none of such additional amounts shall be deemed overdue prior to such a demand or shall accrue interest at the
Default Rate prior to such a demand.
 
(e)
Each party hereto hereby agrees that neither the Administrative Agent nor the Sustainability
Coordinator shall have any responsibility for (or liability in respect of) reviewing, auditing or otherwise
evaluating any calculation by the Company of any Sustainability Margin Adjustment or any Sustainability Fee
Adjustment (or any of the data or computations that are part of or related to any such calculation) set forth in
any Pricing Certificate (and the Administrative Agent may rely conclusively on any such certificate, without
further inquiry).

, any and all payments by or on
account of any obligation of the Company under any Loan Document shall be made free and clear of, and
without deduction or withholding for, any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or
withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto, excluding, in the case of each Bank and Agent, (i) such
taxes (including income taxes or franchise taxes) as are imposed on or measured by each Bank’s net income by
the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Bank or Agent, as the case may be, is organized or maintains a
Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof, (ii) in the case of a Bank, U.S. federal withholding taxes
imposed on amounts payable to or for the account of such Bank pursuant to a law in effect on the date on which
the Bank acquires an interest in any Loan Document, except to the extent that, in the case of an assignment,
pursuant to this
, amounts with respect to such taxes were payable to such Bank’s assignor
immediately before such Bank acquired such interest in any Loan Document, and (iii) any U.S. federal
withholding taxes imposed under FATCA
 
(all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges,
withholdings and liabilities imposed on or with respect to any payment made by or on account of any obligation

Taxes
”).
(b)
In addition, the Company shall pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other
excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies which arise from any payment made hereunder or from the
execution, delivery or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any other Loan
Documents (hereinafter referred to as “
Other Taxes
”). If any Bank becomes aware of the imposition of Other
Taxes, it shall promptly notify the Company and the Administrative Agent thereof.
(c)
Subject to subsection
, the Company shall indemnify and hold harmless each Bank and
Agent for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes
 
(including any Taxes or Other Taxes
 
imposed by any
jurisdiction on amounts payable under this
) paid by such Bank or Agent and any liability
(including penalties, interest, additions to tax and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether
or not such Taxes or Other Taxes
 
were correctly or legally asserted. Payment under this indemnification shall be
made within 30 days from the date such Bank or Agent makes written demand therefor in a certificate, which
shall be conclusive absent manifest error, setting forth in reasonable detail the amount and nature of such
payment or liability.
(d)
If the Company or the Administrative Agent shall be required by law to deduct or withhold any
Taxes or Other Taxes
 
from or in respect of any payment by or on account of any obligation of the Company
under any Loan Document, then, subject to subsection
(i)
the sum payable by the Company shall be increased as necessary so that after all required
deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this
) have
been made, the applicable Bank or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, receives an amount
equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made;
(ii)
the Company or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, shall make such deductions; and
(iii)
the Company or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, shall pay the full amount
deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law.
(e)
Within 30 days after the date of any payment by the Company of Taxes
 
or Other Taxes, the
Company shall furnish to the Administrative Agent evidence of payment satisfactory to the Administrative
Agent.
 
(f)
Each Bank which is a foreign person (i.e., a person other than a U.S. Person for United States
Federal income tax purposes) agrees that, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so:
(i)
it shall, no later than the Closing Date (or, in the case of a Bank which becomes a party
hereto pursuant to Section
 
or
 
after the Closing Date, the date upon which the Bank becomes a
party hereto) deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Company through the Administrative Agent
two accurate and complete signed originals of (A) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI or any
successor thereto (“
Form W-8ECI

or
any successor thereto (“
Form W-8BEN

exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, a certificate (a “
U.S. Tax
Compliance Certificate
”) substantially in the form of Exhibit E-1 to the effect that such Bank is not a
“bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the
Company within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation”
described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code, or (C) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY or any
successor thereto (“
Form W-8IMY
”), accompanied by Form W-8ECI, Form W-8BEN,
 
a U.S. Tax
Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E-2 or Exhibit E-3, Internal Revenue Service
Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner,
 
as applicable;
provided
 
that
if the Bank is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Bank are claiming the
portfolio interest exemption, such Bank 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, as appropriate;
(ii)
if at any time the Bank makes any changes necessitating a new Form W-8ECI, Form W-
8BEN or Form W-8IMY,
 
it shall with reasonable promptness deliver to the Administrative Agent and
the Company through the Administrative Agent in replacement for, or in addition to, the forms
previously delivered by it hereunder the applicable documentation specified in clause
 
of this
paragraph
(iii)
it shall, before or promptly after the occurrence of any event (including the passing of
time but excluding any event mentioned in clause
 
above) requiring a change in or renewal of the
most recent Form W-8ECI, Form W-8BEN
 
or Form W-8IMY previously delivered by such Bank,
deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Company through the Administrative Agent two accurate
and complete original signed copies of Form W-8ECI, Form W-8BEN
 
or Form W-8IMY (together with
the applicable supporting documentation specified in clause
 
of this paragraph
) in replacement for
the forms previously delivered by the Bank; and
(iv)
it shall, promptly upon the Company’s or the Administrative Agent’s
 
reasonable request
to that effect, deliver to the Company or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) such other forms
or similar documentation as may be required from time to time by any applicable law, treaty,
 
rule or
regulation in order to establish such Bank’s tax status for withholding purposes;
provided
 
that it shall not
be required to provide such forms or documentation if in such Bank’s reasonable judgment, providing
such forms or documentation would subject the Bank to any material unreimbursed costs or expense or
would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Bank.
(g)
The Company will not be required to pay any additional amounts in respect of United States Taxes
pursuant to subsection
 
to any Bank for the account of any Lending Office of such Bank:
(i)
if the obligation to pay such additional amounts would not have arisen but for a failure by
such Bank to comply with its obligations under subsection
 
in respect of such Lending Office;
 
(ii)
if such Bank shall have delivered to the Company a Form W-8ECI in respect of such
Lending Office pursuant to clause
 
or
 
of subsection
, and such Bank shall not at any time be
entitled to exemption from deduction or withholding of United States Taxes in respect of payments by
the Company hereunder for the account of such Lending Office for any reason other than a change in
United States law or regulations or in the official interpretation of such law or regulations by any
governmental authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof (whether or not having
the force of law) after the date of delivery of such Form W-8ECI; or
(iii)
if the Bank shall have delivered to the Company a Form W-8BEN or Form W-8IMY
 
in
respect of such Lending Office pursuant to clause
 
or
 
of subsection
, and such Bank shall
not at any time be entitled to exemption from deduction or withholding of United States Taxes in respect
of payments by the Company hereunder for the account of such Lending Office for any reason other
than a change in United States law or regulations or any applicable tax treaty or regulations or in the
official interpretation of any such law, treaty or regulations
 
by any governmental authority charged with
the interpretation or administration thereof (whether or not having the force of law) after the date of
delivery of such Form W-8BEN or Form W-8IMY.
(h)
If the Company is required to pay additional amounts to any Bank or Agent pursuant to subsection
 
or
, then such Bank shall (at the request of the Company) use its reasonable best efforts
(consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Lending Office or to take
other reasonable action so as to eliminate any such additional payment by the Company which may thereafter
accrue if such change or action in the judgment of such Bank, would not subject such Bank to any unreimbursed
cost or expense and is not otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank.
 
The Company hereby agrees to pay all
reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Bank in connection with such designation.
(i)
Any Bank that is a U.S. Person for United States Federal income tax purposes shall deliver to the
Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Bank becomes a party hereto (and
from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent),
executed originals of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 certifying that such Bank is exempt from U.S. federal
backup withholding.
(j)
If any Bank determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund
of any Taxes or Other Taxes
 
as to which it has been indemnified by the Company or with respect to which the
Company has paid additional amounts pursuant to this
, then it shall pay over such refund to the
Company (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Company
under this
 
with respect to the Taxes or Other Taxes
 
giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-
pocket expenses (including taxes) of such Bank and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant
Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). The Company, upon the request of such Bank, shall repay
to such Bank the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph
 
(plus any penalties, interest or other charges
imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such Bank is required to repay such refund
to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph
, in no event will
the Bank be required to pay any amount to the Company pursuant to this paragraph
 
the payment of which
would place the Bank in a less favorable net after-tax position than the Bank would have been in if the tax
subject to indemnification had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification
payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This paragraph
 
shall not be
construed to require any Bank to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes
that it deems confidential) to the Company or any other Person.
 
(k)
If a payment made to a Bank under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal
withholding Taxes imposed by FATCA
 
if such Bank were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting
requirements of FATCA
 
(including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable),
such Bank shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law
and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent such
documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code)
and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as may
be necessary for the Company and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA
and to determine that such Bank has complied with such Bank’s obligations under FATCA
 
or to determine the
amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this paragraph
, “FATCA”
 
shall
include any amendments made to FATCA
 
after the date of this Agreement.
SECTION 3.02.
Illegality
.
 
(a)
 
If any Bank shall reasonably determine, based upon the advice of
its counsel, that the introduction of any Requirement of Law, or any change in any Requirement of Law or in
the interpretation or administration thereof, has made it unlawful, or that any central bank or other
Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Bank or its Lending Office to make
Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans, then, on notice thereof by the Bank to the Company through
the Administrative Agent, the obligation of that Bank to make Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans,
as applicable, shall be suspended until the Bank shall have notified the Administrative Agent and the Company
that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist.
(b)
If a Bank shall reasonably determine, based upon the advice of its counsel, that it is unlawful to
maintain any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Term SOFR Loan, the Company shall prepay in full all Eurocurrency
Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans, as applicable, of that Bank then outstanding, together with interest accrued
thereon, either on the last day of the Interest Period thereof if the Bank may lawfully continue to maintain such
Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans to such day,
 
or immediately, if the Bank may not lawfully
continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans, together with any amounts required
to be paid in connection therewith pursuant to
(c)
If the Company is required to prepay any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Term SOFR Loan
immediately as provided in subsection
, then concurrently with such prepayment, the Company shall
borrow from the affected Bank, in the amount of such repayment, a Base Rate Loan.
(d)
If the obligation of any Bank to make or maintain Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans
has been suspended as provided in subsection 3.02(a), the Company may elect, by giving notice to the Bank
through the Administrative Agent that all Loans which would otherwise be made by the Bank as Eurocurrency
Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans, as applicable, shall be instead Base Rate Loans.
(e)
Before giving any notice to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this
, the affected
Bank shall designate a different Lending Office with respect to its Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term
 
SOFR
Loans, as applicable, if such designation will avoid the need for giving such notice or making such demand and
will not, in the judgment of the Bank, be illegal or otherwise disadvantageous to the Bank.
 
SECTION 3.03.
Increased Costs and Reduction of Return
.
 
(a)
 
If any Bank shall determine that, due
to and as a direct result of any Change in Law (other than any change by way of imposition of or increase in
reserve requirements included in the calculation of the Eurocurrency Rate), there shall be any increase in the
cost to such Bank of agreeing to make or making, funding or maintaining its Revolving Commitment hereunder
or any Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Term SOFR Loans (or,
 
in the case of any imposition or increase in taxes,
any Loans) (including any imposition or increase in taxes (other than (x) withholding taxes imposed on or with
respect to any payment made by or on account of any obligation of the Company under any Loan Document or
(y) Other Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits,
reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto), or of agreeing to issue or participate in or issuing or
participating in any Letters of Credit, then the Company shall be liable for, and shall from time to time, upon
demand therefor by such Bank (with a copy of such demand to the Administrative Agent), pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of such Bank, additional amounts as are sufficient to compensate such
Bank for such increased costs.
 
For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 3.03(a) does not apply to increased
costs as a result of (A) taxes described in Section 3.01(a)(i), (ii) or (iii), (B) Taxes as defined in Section 3.01(a),
or (C) Other Taxes.
(b)
If any Bank shall have determined that any Change in Law affects or would affect the amount of
capital required or expected to be maintained by such Bank or any corporation controlling such Bank and
(taking into consideration such Bank’s or such corporation’s
 
policies with respect to capital adequacy and
liquidity and such Bank’s desired return on capital) determines that the amount of such capital is increased as a
consequence of its Revolving Commitment, Loans, credits or obligations under this Agreement (including its
obligations in respect of Letters of Credit), then, upon demand of such Bank (with a copy to the Administrative
Agent), the Company shall upon demand pay to such Bank, from time to time as specified by such Bank,
additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Bank for such increase.
(c)
If the Company is required to pay additional amounts to any Bank pursuant to subsection
or
, then such Bank shall (at the request of the Company) use reasonable efforts (consistent with legal
and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office with respect to its Eurocurrency Rate Loans
or Term SOFR Loans, as applicable, so as to eliminate any such additional payment by the Company,
 
which
may thereafter accrue if such change in the judgment of such Bank, would not subject such Bank to any
unreimbursed cost or expense and is not otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank.
 
The Company hereby agrees
to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Bank in connection with any such designation.
(d)
For purposes of this
, (i) all requests, rules, guidelines, requirements and directives
promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any
successor or similar authority) or by United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to
Basel III, and (ii) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform
 
and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules,
guidelines, requirements and directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith or in implementation
thereof, shall be deemed to have been introduced and adopted after the date of this Agreement. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, no Bank shall be entitled to seek compensation for costs imposed pursuant to the Dodd-Frank
Wall Street Reform and
 
Consumer Protection Act or Basel III if it shall not be the general policy of such Bank
at such time to seek compensation from other borrowers with the same or similar ratings under yield protection
provisions in credit agreements with such borrowers that provide for such compensation and the applicable
Bank is in fact generally seeking such compensation from such borrowers (and, upon any request by such Bank
for payment, certifies to the Company to the effect of the foregoing).
 
(e)
The Company shall pay to each Bank, (i) as long as such Bank shall be required to maintain
reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including eurocurrency funds or deposits (currently
known as “Eurocurrency liabilities”), additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Eurocurrency
Rate Loan equal to the actual costs of such reserves allocated to such Loan by such Bank (as determined by
such Bank in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), and (ii) as long as such
Bank shall be required to comply with any reserve ratio requirement or analogous requirement of any central
banking or financial regulatory authority imposed in respect of the maintenance of the Revolving Commitments
or the funding of the Loans, such additional costs (expressed as a percentage per annum and rounded upwards,
if necessary, to the nearest five decimal places) equal to the actual costs allocated to such Revolving
Commitment or Loan by such Bank (as determined by such Bank in good faith, which determination shall be
conclusive), which in each case shall be due and payable on each date on which interest is payable on such
Loan, provided the Company shall have received at least ten (10) days’ prior notice (with a copy to the
Administrative Agent) of such additional interest or costs from such Bank.
 
If a Bank fails to give notice ten
(10) days prior to the relevant Interest Payment Date, such additional interest shall be due and payable ten (10)
days from receipt of such notice.
SECTION 3.04.
Funding Losses
. The Company agrees to reimburse each Bank and to hold each Bank
harmless from any loss or out-of-pocket expense which such Bank may sustain or incur as a direct consequence
of:
(a)
the failure of the Company to make on a timely basis any payment of principal of any
Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Term SOFR Loan (including payments made after any acceleration thereof);
(b)
the failure of the Company to borrow, continue or convert a Loan after the Company has given (or
is deemed to have given) a Notice of Borrowing or a Notice of Conversion/Continuation;
(c)
the failure of the Company to make any prepayment after the Company has given a notice in
accordance with
(d)
any failure by the Company to make payment of any Loan or (or interest due thereon)
denominated in an Alternative Currency on its scheduled due date or any payment thereof in a different
currency;
(e)
any principal payment in respect of an Eurocurrency Rate Loan or a Term SOFR Loan on a day
which is not the last day of the Interest Period with respect thereto; or
(f)
the conversion pursuant to
 
of any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or a Term SOFR Loan to
a Base Rate Loan on a day that is not the last day of the respective Interest Period;
 
including any loss of anticipated profits, any foreign exchange losses and any loss or expense arising from the
liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain such Loan, from fees payable to terminate the
deposits from which such funds were obtained or from the performance of any foreign exchange contract.
 
The
Company shall also pay any customary administrative fees charged by such Bank in connection with the
foregoing.
For purposes of calculating amounts payable by the Company to the Banks under this Section 3.04, each Bank
shall be deemed to have funded each Eurocurrency Rate Loan made by it at the Eurocurrency Rate for such
Loan by a matching deposit or other borrowing in the offshore interbank market for such currency for a
comparable amount and for a comparable period, whether or not such Eurocurrency Rate Loan was in fact so
funded.
 
SECTION 3.05.
Inability to Determine Rates
.
 
(a)
If the Administrative Agent shall have determined (i) that for any reason adequate and reasonable
means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurocurrency Rate or Term SOFR for any requested Interest Period with
respect to a proposed Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Term SOFR Loan, as applicable, or (ii) that the Eurocurrency
Rate or Term SOFR applicable pursuant to subsection
 
for any requested Interest Period with respect to a
proposed Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Term SOFR Loan, as applicable, does not adequately and fairly reflect the
cost to any Bank of funding such Loan, the Administrative Agent will forthwith give notice of such
determination to the Company and each Bank. Thereafter, (i) the obligation of the Banks to make or maintain
Eurocurrency Rate Loans in the affected currency or Term
 
SOFR Loans hereunder, as applicable, shall be

a
Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent or such administrator with

has made a public
statement identifying a specific date on which all tenors of Term SOFR or the Term
 
SOFR Screen Rate
shall or will no longer be made available, or permitted to be used for determining the interest rate of
loans denominated in Dollars, or shall or will otherwise cease, provided that, in each case, at the time of
such statement, there is no successor administrator that is satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, that

Scheduled Term
 
SOFR

SOFR Successor Rate in accordance with

calculated, as applicable, with an alternative benchmark rate giving due consideration to any evolving or then
existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated credit facilities syndicated and agented in the United
States for such alternative benchmark. and, in each case, including any mathematical or other adjustments to
such benchmark giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar

Term
 
SOFR Successor Rate
”.
 
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 Banks and the Company unless,

adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Relevant Rate (other than
Term SOFR) for an Alternative Currency because none of the tenors of such Relevant Rate (other than
Term SOFR) under this Agreement is available or published on a current basis, and such circumstances
are unlikely to be temporary; or
(ii)
the Applicable Authority has made a public statement identifying a specific date after
which all tenors of the Relevant Rate (other than Term SOFR) for an Alternative Currency under this
Agreement
 
shall or will no longer be representative or made available, or permitted to be used for
determining the interest rate of syndicated loans denominated in such Alternative Currency, or shall or
will otherwise cease, provided that, in each case, at the time of such statement, there is no successor
administrator that is satisfactory to the Administrative Agent that will continue to provide such
representative tenor(s) of the Relevant Rate (other than Term SOFR) for such Alternative Currency (the
latest date on which all tenors of the Relevant Rate for such Alternative Currency under this Agreement
are no longer representative or available permanently or indefinitely, the “
Scheduled Unavailability
Date
”);
 
 
 
 
 
 
or if the events or circumstances of the type described in Section 3.05(c)(i) or (ii) have occurred with respect to
the Successor Rate then in effect, then, the Administrative Agent and the Company may amend this Agreement
solely for the purpose of replacing the Relevant Rate for an Alternative Currency or any then current Successor
Rate for such Alternative Currency in accordance with this Section 3.05 with an alternative benchmark rate
giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar credit facilities syndicated and
agented in the U.S. and denominated in such Alternative Currency for such alternative benchmarks, and, in each
case, including any mathematical or other adjustments to such benchmark

Bank of (i) the implementation of any Successor Rate and (ii) the effectiveness of any Conforming Changes in
connection with the use, administration, adoption or implementation of a Successor Rate.
(e)
Any Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that to
the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent, such Successor
Rate shall be applied in a manner as otherwise reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent.

otherwise be less than 0%, the Successor Rate will be deemed to be 0% for the purposes of this Agreement and
the other Loan Documents.
