(i) Sterling shall not be considered a currency for which there is a published LIBOR rate, and (ii) any request for a new Loan denominated in Sterling, or to continue an existing Loan denominated in Sterling, shall be deemed to be a request for a new Loan bearing interest at the Sterling Rate; provided, that, to the extent any Loan denominated in Sterling bearing interest at the Eurocurrency Rate is outstanding on the Amendment No. 8 Effective Date, such Loan shall continue to bear interest at the Eurocurrency Rate until the end of the current Interest Period or payment period applicable to such Loan unless, in the case of a Loan that bears interest at a daily floating rate, such daily floating rate is no longer representative or being made available, in which case such Loan shall bear interest at the Sterling Rate immediately upon the effectiveness of this Agreement.

(b) References to Eurocurrency Rate and Eurocurrency Rate Loans in the Credit Agreement and Loan Documents.

(i) References to the Eurocurrency Rate and Eurocurrency Rate Loans in provisions of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents that are not specifically addressed herein (other than the definitions of Eurocurrency Rate and Eurocurrency Rate Loan) shall be deemed to include Sterling Rate and Sterling Rate Loans, as applicable.

(ii) For purposes of any requirement for the Company to compensate Lenders for losses in the Credit Agreement resulting from any continuation, conversion, payment or prepayment of any Sterling Rate Loan on a day other than the last day of any Interest Period (as defined in the Credit Agreement), references to the Interest Period (as defined in the Credit Agreement) shall be deemed to include any relevant interest payment date or payment period for a Sterling Rate Loan.

(c) Interest Rates. 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 “Sterling Rate” or with respect to any rate (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the selection of such rate and any related spread or other adjustment) that is an alternative or replacement for or successor to any such rate or the effect of any of the foregoing, or of any Conforming Changes.

(d) Revaluation Dates. The Company shall determine the Dollar Equivalent amounts of Borrowings and Loans denominated in Sterling. Such Dollar Equivalent shall become effective as of such Revaluation Date and shall be the Dollar Equivalent of such amounts until the next Revaluation Date to occur.

(e) Borrowings of Sterling Rate Loans. In addition to any other borrowing requirements set forth in the Credit Agreement:

(i) Sterling Rate Loans. Each Borrowing of Sterling Rate Loans shall be made upon the relevant Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Administrative Agent, which may be given by (A) telephone or (B) a Committed Loan Notice; provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed immediately by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Committed Loan Notice. Each such Committed Loan Notice must be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. (Eastern time) three Business Days prior to



the requested date of any Borrowing. Each Borrowing of or continuation of Sterling Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount of GBP2,500,000 or a whole multiple of GBP1,000,000 in excess thereof. Each Committed Loan Notice shall specify (i) the requested date of the Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day), (ii) the currency and principal amount of Loans to be borrowed or continued and (iii) the Type of Loans to be borrowed. If a Borrower fails to specify a currency in a Loan Notice requesting a Borrowing, then the Loans so requested shall be made in Dollars. If a Borrower fails to specify a Type of Loan in a Committed Loan Notice, then the applicable Loans shall be made as Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars. Except as otherwise specified in the Credit Agreement, no Sterling Rate Loan may be converted into or continued as a Loan denominated in a different currency, but instead must be repaid in Sterling and reborrowed in the other currency.

(ii) Conforming Changes. With respect to the Sterling Rate, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes in consultation with the Company from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the Credit Agreement or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement, the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided, that, with respect to any such amendment effected, the Administrative Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes to the Company and the Lenders reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective.

(iii) Committed Loan Notice. For purposes of a Borrowing of Sterling Rate Loans, the Borrowers shall use the Committed Loan Notice attached hereto as Exhibit A.

(f) Interest.
(i) Subject to the provisions of the Credit Agreement with respect to default interest, each Sterling Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable borrowing date at a rate per annum equal to the Sterling Rate plus the Applicable Rate.

(ii) Interest on each Sterling Rate Loan shall be due and payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date applicable thereto and at such other times as may be specified the Credit Agreement. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any proceeding under any debtor relief law.

(g) Computations. All computations of interest for Sterling Rate Loans shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. Interest shall accrue on each Sterling Rate Loan for the day on which the Sterling Rate Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Sterling Rate Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Sterling Rate Loan or such portion is paid, provided that any Sterling Rate Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall, subject to the terms of the Credit Agreement, bear interest for one day. Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fee hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

(h) Successor Rates. The provisions in the Credit Agreement addressing the replacement of a current Successor Rate for a currency shall be deemed to apply to Sterling Rate Loans and SONIA, as applicable, and the related defined terms shall be deemed to include Sterling and SONIA, as applicable.
