(b)    The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of and as agent for Finnvera, semi-annually in advance on the twentieth (20th) Business Day preceding the first day of each Interest Period for each Tranche B Loan an amount equal to the product of the Applicable Premium Rate as of the immediately preceding Business Day and the outstanding principal amount of the Tranche B Loans to be outstanding for such Interest Period in the currency of such Tranche B Loans, after giving effect to any repayment scheduled to be paid after such date but prior to the first day of such Interest Period, multiplied by the actual number of days in such Interest Period, divided by 360, in the currency of such Tranche B Loans. The Administrative Agent shall pay the premium on the Finnvera Guarantee received from the Borrower to Finnvera semi-annually in advance on the Business Day immediately preceding the first day of each Interest Period for such Loans.
(c)        At the direction of the Borrower, premiums on the Finnvera Guarantee received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 3.4 shall be placed by the Administrative Agent on demand or fixed rate deposit, as directed by the Borrower, as soon as possible after receipt thereof and interest shall accrue thereon at the London Interbank Bid Rate until such time as the Administrative Agent pays such premiums to Finnvera. The Administrative Agent shall release interest earned pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence to the Borrower on the first day of the relevant Interest Period.
SECTION 3.5.    Residual Risk Guarantee Premiums. The premiums on the Residual Risk Guarantee shall accrue and be payable in accordance with this Section 3.5. On and after March 5, 2014, the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the ratable account of and as agent for the Tranche B Lenders semi-annually in arrears in Dollars on the last day of each Interest Period for each Tranche A Loan an amount equal to the product of 0.25% per annum and the daily outstanding principal amount of the Tranche A Loan, multiplied by the actual number of days elapsed, divided by 360. The Administrative Agent shall pay the premium on the Residual Risk Guarantee received from the Borrower to the Tranche B Lenders semi-annually in arrears on the last day of each Interest Period with respect to the Tranche A Loans.
SECTION 3.6.    [Intentionally omitted].
SECTION 3.7.    [Intentionally omitted].
ARTICLE IV    

CERTAIN APPLICABLE FLOATING RATE AND OTHER PROVISIONS
SECTION 4.1.    Applicable Floating Rate Lending Unlawful. If after the Original Effective Date the introduction of or any change in or in the

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    20



interpretation of any law makes it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority having jurisdiction over such Lender asserts that it is unlawful, for such Lender to continue or maintain any Loan bearing interest at a rate based on the Applicable Floating Rate, the obligations of such Lender to continue or maintain any Loan bearing interest at a rate based on the Applicable Floating Rate shall, upon notice thereof to the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and each other Lender, forthwith be suspended until the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, provided that such Lender’s obligation to continue and maintain its Loan hereunder shall be automatically converted into an obligation to continue and maintain a Loan bearing interest at a rate to be negotiated between such Lender and the Borrower that is the equivalent of the sum of the Applicable Floating Rate for the relevant Interest Period plus the Floating Rate Applicable Margin or, if such negotiated rate is not agreed upon by the Borrower and such Lender within fifteen Business Days, in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars, a rate equal to the Floating Rate Applicable Margin plus the greater of (w) the rate publicly announced by BNP Paribas’s New York office as its “prime rate” and (x) Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect plus 0.50% per annum and, in the case of Loans denominated in Euro, a rate equal to the Floating Rate Applicable Margin plus the greater of (y) the average of the rates publicly announced by Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB’s and Nordea Bank’s head offices as their “prime rates” for loans in Euro and (z) the Central European Bank’s rate for the Main Refinancing Operations (MRO) in effect plus 0.50% per annum.
SECTION 4.2.    Deposits Unavailable. If, with respect to the Tranche B Loans:
(a)    the Administrative Agent shall have determined that deposits in the relevant amount, denominated in the relevant currency and for the relevant Interest Period are not available to the Reference Lenders in their relevant market;
(b)    the Administrative Agent shall have determined that by reason of circumstances affecting the Reference Lenders’ relevant market, adequate means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable hereunder to Floating Rate Loans denominated in Dollars and/or Euro; or
(c)    before the close of business in London on the date of determination of the Applicable Floating Rate for the relevant Interest Period or period, Lenders holding a majority of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of Loans (based on the Equivalent in Dollars with respect to any portion of the Loans that are denominated in Euro) determine that the cost to them of obtaining matching deposits in the relevant interbank market for the relevant currency in respect of any Loan would be in excess of the Applicable Floating Rate;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice of such determination (hereinafter called a “Determination Notice”) to the Borrower and each of the Lenders. The Borrower, the Lenders

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    21



and the Administrative Agent shall enter into negotiations in good faith in order to agree upon a mutually satisfactory interest rate (or rates) to be substituted for those which would otherwise have applied under this Agreement. If the Borrower, the Lenders and the Administrative Agent are unable to agree upon an interest rate (or rates) prior to the date occurring fifteen Business Days after the giving of such Determination Notice, the interest rate (or rates) payable to the Lenders to take effect at the end of the Interest Period current at the date of the Determination Notice shall be equal to, in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars, the Floating Rate Applicable Margin plus the greater of (w) the rate publicly announced by BNP Paribas’s New York office as its “prime rate” and (x) Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect plus 0.50% per annum and, in the case of Loans denominated in Euro, the Floating Rate Applicable Margin plus the greater of (y) the average of the rates publicly announced by Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB’s and Nordea Bank’s head offices as their “prime rates” for loans in Euro and (z) the Central European Bank’s rate for the Main Refinancing Operations (MRO) in effect plus 0.50% per annum.
SECTION 4.3.    Increased Floating Rate Loan Costs, etc. If, after the Original Effective Date, a change in any applicable treaty, law, regulation or regulatory requirement or in the interpretation thereof or in its application to the Borrower, or if compliance by any Lender with any applicable direction, request, requirement or guideline (whether or not having the force of law) of any governmental or other authority including, without limitation, any agency of the European Union or similar monetary or multinational authority insofar as it may be changed or imposed after the date hereof, shall:
(a)    subject any Lender to any taxes, levies, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings of any nature with respect to its portion of the Loans or any part thereof imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any jurisdiction or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof (other than taxation on overall net income and, to the extent such taxes are described in Section 4.6, withholding taxes); or
(b)    change the basis of taxation to any Lender (other than a change in taxation on the overall net income of such Lender) of payments of principal or interest or any other payment due or to become due pursuant to this Agreement; or
(c)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve or capital adequacy requirements (other than the reserve costs described in Section 4.7) or other banking or monetary controls or requirements which affect the manner in which a Lender shall allocate its capital resources to its obligations hereunder or require the making of any special deposits against or in respect of any assets or liabilities of, deposits with or for the account of, or loans by, any Lender (provided that such Lender shall, unless prohibited by law, allocate its capital resources to its obligations hereunder in a manner which is consistent with its present treatment of the allocation of its capital resources); or
(d)    impose on any Lender any other condition affecting its portion of the Loans,

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    22



and the result of any of the foregoing is either (i) to increase the cost to such Lender of continuing or maintaining its Loan or any part thereof, (ii) to reduce the amount of any payment received by such Lender or its effective return hereunder or on its capital or (iii) to cause such Lender to make any payment or to forego any return based on any amount received or receivable by such Lender hereunder, then and in any such case if such increase or reduction in the opinion of such Lender materially affects the interests of such Lender, (A) the Lender concerned shall (through the Administrative Agent) notify the Borrower of the occurrence of such event and use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid the effects of such law, regulation or regulatory requirement or any change therein or in the interpretation thereof and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender and (B) the Borrower shall forthwith upon demand pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of and as agent for such Lender such amount as is necessary to compensate such Lender for such additional cost or such reduction and ancillary expenses, including taxes, incurred as a result of such adjustment. Such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the event leading to such additional cost, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the amount of such additional cost, (iii) describe the manner in which such amount has been calculated, (iv) certify that the method used to calculate such amount is the Lender’s standard method of calculating such amount, (v) certify that such request is consistent with its treatment of other borrowers that are subject to similar provisions, and (vi) certify that, to the best of its knowledge, such change in circumstance is of general application to the commercial banking industry in such Lender’s jurisdiction of organization or in the relevant jurisdiction in which such Lender does business. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than three months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the circumstance giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the three-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof, but not more than six months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such cost or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor.
SECTION 4.4.    Funding Losses. (a) In the event any Lender shall incur any loss or expense by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to continue or maintain any portion of the principal amount of any Loan as a Floating Rate Loan as a result of any conversion or repayment or prepayment of the principal amount of the Tranche B Loans on a date other than the scheduled last day of an Interest Period with respect to the Tranche B Loans, whether pursuant to Section 3.1 or otherwise, then, upon the written notice of such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall, within five Business Days of its receipt thereof, pay directly to such Lender such amount as will reimburse such Lender for such loss or expense. Such written notice shall

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    23



include calculations in reasonable detail setting forth the loss or expense to such Lender.
(b)    In the event any Lender shall incur any Breakage Costs by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to continue or maintain any portion of the principal amount of any Loan as a Fixed Rate Loan as a result of any conversion or repayment or prepayment of the principal amount of the Tranche A Loans on a date other than a scheduled repayment date for such Tranche A Loans as set forth in Schedule II hereto, whether pursuant to Section 3.1 or otherwise, then, upon the written notice of such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall, within five Business Days of its receipt thereof, pay directly to such Lender such Breakage Costs.  Such written notice shall include calculations in reasonable detail setting forth the Breakage Costs to such Lender.
SECTION 4.5.    Increased Capital Costs. If, after the Original Effective Date, any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase-in of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any court, central bank, regulator or other governmental authority increases the amount of capital required to be maintained by any Lender or any Person controlling such Lender, and the rate of return on its or such controlling Person’s capital as a consequence of the Loan made by such Lender is reduced to a level below that which such Lender or such controlling Person would have achieved but for the occurrence of any such change in circumstance, then, in any such case upon notice from time to time by such Lender to the Borrower, the Borrower shall immediately pay directly to such Lender additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender or such controlling Person for such reduction in rate of return. Any such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the capital adequacy requirements which have been imposed, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the amount of such lowered return, (iii) describe the manner in which such amount has been calculated, (iv) certify that the method used to calculate such amount is such Lender’s standard method of calculating such amount, (v) certify that such request for such additional amounts is consistent with its treatment of other borrowers that are subject to similar provisions and (vi) certify that, to the best of its knowledge, such change in circumstances is of general application to the commercial banking industry in the jurisdictions in which such Lender does business. In determining such amount, such Lender may use any method of averaging and attribution that it shall, subject to the foregoing sentence, deem applicable. Each Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid such reduction in such rate of return and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    24



Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than three months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the circumstance giving rise to such reductions is retroactive, then the three-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof, but not more than six months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor.
SECTION 4.6.    Taxes. All payments by the Borrower of principal of, and interest on, the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder or under the Finnvera Commitment Letter shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any present or future income, excise, stamp or franchise taxes and other taxes, fees, duties, withholdings or other charges of any nature whatsoever imposed by any taxing authority, but excluding franchise taxes and taxes imposed on or measured by Finnvera’s or any Lender’s net income or receipts of Finnvera or such Lender and franchise taxes imposed in lieu of net income taxes or receipts by the jurisdiction under the laws of which Finnvera or such Lender is organized or any political subdivision thereof or the jurisdiction of such Lender’s Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof or any other jurisdiction unless such net income taxes are imposed solely as a result of the Borrower’s activities in such other jurisdiction (such non-excluded items being called “Taxes”). In the event that any withholding or deduction from any payment to be made by the Borrower hereunder or under the Finnvera Commitment Letter is required in respect of any Taxes pursuant to any applicable law, rule or regulation, then the Borrower will:
(a)    pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required to be so withheld or deducted;
(b)    promptly forward to the Administrative Agent an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to the Administrative Agent evidencing such payment to such authority; and
(c)    pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of and as agent for Finnvera or the Lenders, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received (including any Taxes on such additional amounts) by Finnvera or each Lender will equal the full amount Finnvera or such Lender would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required.
Moreover, if any Taxes are directly asserted against the Administrative Agent, Finnvera or any Lender with respect to any payment received or paid by the Administrative Agent, Finnvera or such Lender hereunder, under the Finnvera Commitment Letter or under or in connection with any other Loan Document, the Administrative Agent, Finnvera or such Lender may pay such

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    25



Taxes and the Borrower will promptly pay such additional amounts (including any penalties, interest or expenses) as is necessary in order that the net amount received by such Person after the payment of such Taxes (including any Taxes on such additional amounts) shall equal the amount such Person would have received had no such Taxes been asserted.
Any Person claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Lending Office if the making of such a change would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Person, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Person.
If the Borrower fails to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the Administrative Agent, for the account of Finnvera or the respective Lenders, the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower shall indemnify Finnvera and the Lenders for any incremental withholding Taxes, interest or penalties or expenses that may become payable by Finnvera or any Lender as a result of any such failure (except to the extent that such amount becomes payable as a result of the failure of Finnvera or such Lender to provide timely notice to the Borrower of the assertion of a liability related to the payment of Taxes). For purposes of this Section 4.6, a distribution hereunder by the Administrative Agent or any Lender to or for the account of Finnvera or any Lender shall be deemed a payment by the Borrower.
If any Lender is entitled to any refund, credit, deduction or other reduction in Tax by reason of any payment made by the Borrower in respect of any Tax under this Section 4.6 or by reason of any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 4.3, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to obtain such refund, credit, deduction or other reduction and, promptly after receipt thereof (and, in the case of any such credit, utilization thereof), will pay to the Borrower such amount (plus any interest received by such Lender in connection with such refund, credit, deduction or reduction) as is equal to the net after-tax value to such Lender of such part of such refund, credit, deduction or reduction as such Lender reasonably determines is allocable to such tax or such payment, less out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such Lender, provided that no Lender shall be obligated to disclose to the Borrower any information regarding its tax affairs or tax computations.
Each Lender (and each Participant) that is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States agrees with the Borrower and the Administrative Agent that it will (a) provide to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower an appropriately executed copy of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI certifying that any payments made to or for the benefit of such Lender or such Participant are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States (or, alternatively, Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, but only if the applicable treaty described in such form provides for a complete exemption from U.S. federal income tax withholding), or any successor form, on or prior to the date hereof (or, in the case of any assignee Lender or Participant, on or prior to the date of the relevant assignment or participation), and (b) notify the Administrative Agent and the Borrower if the certifications made on any form provided pursuant to this paragraph are no longer accurate and true in all material respects. For

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    26



any period with respect to which a Lender (or Participant) has failed to provide the Borrower with the foregoing forms (other than if such failure is due to a change in law occurring after the date on which a form originally was required to be provided or if such form otherwise is not required hereunder) such Lender (or Participant) shall not be entitled to the benefits of this Section 4.6 with respect to Taxes imposed by reason of such failure.
If Finnvera should be come subrogated to the rights of any Lender under this Agreement then, for the purposes of the two paragraphs immediately preceding, the term “Lender “ shall be deemed to include Finnvera.
The Borrower shall have no obligation under this Section 4.6 to pay any indemnity or gross-up amount to Finnvera, any Lender or the Administrative Agent to the extent that the Borrower has paid an amount with respect to that Tax to any party pursuant to any other provision of any Loan Document, the Finnvera Commitment Letter or the Lenders’ Commitment Letter.
SECTION 4.7.    Reserve Costs. Without in any way limiting the Borrower’s obligations under Section 4.3, the Borrower shall pay to each Lender on the last day of any Interest Period relevant to such Lender’s Loan, so long as the relevant Lending Office of such Lender is required to maintain reserves against “Eurocurrency liabilities” under Regulation D of the F.R.S. Board, upon notice from such Lender, an additional amount equal to the product of the following for each Loan for each day during such Interest Period:
(i)    the principal amount of such Loan outstanding on such day; and
(ii)    the remainder of (x) a fraction the numerator of which is the rate (expressed as a decimal) at which interest accrues on such Loan for such Interest Period as provided in this Agreement (less the Floating Rate Applicable Margin) and the denominator of which is one minus any increase after the Original Effective Date in the effective rate (expressed as a decimal) at which such reserve requirements are imposed on such Lender minus (y) such numerator; and
(iii)    1/360.
Such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the reserve requirement that has been imposed, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the applicable reserve percentage, (iii) certify that such request is consistent with such Lender’s treatment of other borrowers that are subject to similar provisions and (iv) certify that, to the best of its knowledge, such requirements are of general application in the commercial banking industry in the United States.
Each Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to avoid the requirement of maintaining such reserves (including by designating a different Lending Office) if such efforts would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    27



SECTION 4.8.    Replacement Lenders, etc. If the Borrower shall be required to make any payment to any Lender pursuant to Section 4.3, 4.5, 4.6 or 4.7, or if the Borrower shall elect to prepay the Loans pursuant to the proviso in Section 3.1(a)(i), the Borrower shall be entitled at any time (so long as no Default and no Prepayment Event shall have occurred and be continuing) within 180 days after receipt of notice from such Lender of such required payment to (a) prepay the affected portion of such Lender’s Loan in full, together with accrued interest thereon through the date of such prepayment and any amounts due in connection with such prepayment pursuant to Section 4.4 (provided that the Borrower shall not prepay any such Lender pursuant to this clause (a) without replacing such Lender pursuant to the following clause (b) until a 30-day period shall have elapsed during which the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall have attempted in good faith to replace such Lender), and/or (b) replace such Lender with another Lender or an Eligible Assignee either (x) by, if an Eligible Assignee is not a Lender, becoming a party to this Agreement as a Lender by execution of and delivery to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of counterparts of this Agreement, and such Lender or Eligible Assignee refinancing any Loans prepaid pursuant to clause (a) above with loans made by such Lender or Eligible Assignee (any such loans being “Tranche B Loans” and having the identical terms as the Tranche B Loans so prepaid, other than the rate of interest applicable to and the tenor of such loans, which rate of interest and tenor shall be as agreed between the Borrower and such financial institution, except that in no event shall the final maturity of such loans be later than the twelfth anniversary of the Original Closing Date with respect to the Tranche B Loans), or (y) pursuant to an assignment in accordance with Section 12.11.1, provided that (i) each such assignment shall be either an assignment of all of the rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement and the Residual Risk Guarantee, or an assignment of a portion of such rights and obligations made concurrently with another such assignment or other such assignments that together cover all of the rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement and (ii) no Lender shall be obligated to make any such assignment as a result of a demand by the Borrower pursuant to this Section unless and until such Lender shall have received one or more payments from either the Borrower or one or more Assignee Lenders in an aggregate amount at least equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Loan owing to such Lender, together with accrued interest thereon to the date of payment of such principal amount and all other amounts payable to such Lender under this Agreement. Each Lender represents and warrants to the Borrower that, as of the Original Effective Date (or, with respect to any Lender not a party hereto on the date hereof, on the date that such Lender becomes a party hereto), there is no existing treaty, law, regulation, regulatory requirement, interpretation, directive, guideline, decision or request pursuant to which such Lender would be entitled to request any payments under any of Sections 4.3, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 to or for account of such Lender.

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    28



SECTION 4.9.    Payments, Computations, etc. Unless otherwise expressly provided, all payments by the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or the Notes shall be made by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent for the pro rata account (determined using the Equivalent in Dollars of any portion of the Loans that are denominated in Euro) of and as agent for the Lenders entitled to receive such payment. All such payments required to be made to the Administrative Agent shall be made, without setoff, deduction or counterclaim, not later than 12:00 noon, London time, in the case of payments made in Euro, and 11:00 a.m. New York time, in the case of payments made in Dollars, on the date due, in same day or immediately available funds through the New York Clearing House Interbank Payments System (or such other funds as may be customary for the settlement of international banking transactions in Dollars or Euro, as applicable), to such account as the Administrative Agent shall specify from time to time by notice to the Borrower. Funds received after that time shall be deemed to have been received by the Administrative Agent on the next succeeding Business Day. The Administrative Agent shall promptly (but in any event on the same Business Day that the same are received or, as contemplated in the immediately preceding sentence, deemed received) remit in same day funds to each Lender its share, if any, of such payments received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender without any setoff, deduction or counterclaim. All interest and fees in respect of Loans denominated in Dollars shall be paid in Dollars and all interest and fees in respect of Loans denominated in Euro shall be payable in Euro, and in each case shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring during the period for which such interest or fee is payable over a year comprised of 360 days. Whenever any payment to be made shall otherwise be due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day (unless the next succeeding Business Day is the first Business Day of a calendar month, in which case such payment shall be made on the Business Day preceding the first Business Day of such calendar month) and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest and fees, if any, in connection with such payment.
SECTION 4.10.    Sharing of Payments. If any Lender shall obtain any payment or other recovery (whether voluntary, involuntary, by application of setoff or otherwise) on account of any Loan (other than pursuant to the terms of Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 and 12.11 and except as otherwise provided in Sections 3.1(a) and 4.12, to the extent such Sections permit prepayment of Loans on a non-ratable basis) in excess of its pro rata share of payments then or therewith obtained by all Lenders, such Lender shall purchase from the other Lenders such participations in Loans made by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment or other recovery ratably (determined using the Equivalent in Dollars of any portion of the Loans that are denominated in Euro) with each of them; provided that if all or any portion of the excess payment or other recovery is thereafter recovered from

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    29



such purchasing Lender, the purchase shall be rescinded and each Lender which has sold a participation to the purchasing Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the ratable extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such selling Lender’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (a) the amount of such selling Lender’s required repayment to the purchasing Lender to (b) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including pursuant to Section 4.11) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation. If under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, any Lender receives a secured claim in lieu of a setoff to which this Section applies, such Lender shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a manner consistent with the rights of the Lenders entitled under this Section to share in the benefits of any recovery on such secured claim.
SECTION 4.11.    Setoff. Upon the occurrence and during continuance of an Event of Default or Prepayment Event, each Lender shall have, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the right to appropriate and apply to the payment of the Obligations owing to it any and all balances, credits, deposits, accounts or moneys of the Borrower then or thereafter maintained with such Lender; provided that any such appropriation and application shall be subject to the provisions of Section 4.10. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent after any such setoff and application made by such Lender; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application. The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff under applicable law or otherwise) which such Lender may have.
SECTION 4.12.    Use of Proceeds. The Original Borrower applied the proceeds of the Borrowings in accordance with the first recital; without limiting the foregoing, no proceeds of any Loan will be used to acquire any equity security of a class which is registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or any “margin stock”, as defined in F.R.S. Board Regulation U.

ARTICLE XI    

THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT
SECTION 11.1.    Actions. Each Lender hereby appoints BNPPF, as its agent under and for purposes of this Agreement, the Notes and each other Loan Document. Each Lender authorizes the Administrative Agent to act on behalf of such Lender under this Agreement, the Notes and each other Loan Document and, in the absence of other written instructions from the Required Lenders received from time to time by the Administrative Agent (with respect to which the Administrative Agent agrees that it will comply, except as otherwise provided in this Section or as otherwise advised by counsel), to exercise such powers hereunder and thereunder as are specifically delegated to or required of the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as may be reasonably incidental thereto. Each Lender hereby indemnifies (which indemnity shall survive any termination of this Agreement) the Administrative Agent, each of its Affiliates and their respective officers, advisors, directors and employees, according to such Lender’s pro rata share of the Loans (determined using the Equivalent in Dollars of any portion of the Loans denominated in Euro), from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel) that may be incurred by or asserted or awarded against, the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement, the Notes and any other Loan Document or any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, the Notes or any other Loan Document; provided that no Lender shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses which have resulted from the Administrative Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Lender agrees to reimburse the Administrative Agent promptly upon demand for its ratable share

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    48



(determined using the Equivalent in Dollars of any portion of the Loans that is denominated in Euro) of any out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable counsel fees) incurred by the Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement, to the extent that the Administrative Agent is not reimbursed for such expenses by the Borrower. In the case of any investigation, litigation or proceeding giving rise to any such indemnified costs, this Section applies whether any such investigation, litigation or proceeding is brought by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or a third party. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action hereunder, under the Notes or under any other Loan Document, or to prosecute or defend any suit in respect of this Agreement, the Notes or any other Loan Document, unless it is expressly required to do so under this Agreement or is indemnified hereunder to its satisfaction. If any indemnity in favor of the Administrative Agent shall be or become, in the Administrative Agent’s reasonable determination, inadequate, the Administrative Agent may call for additional indemnification from the Lenders and cease to do the acts indemnified against hereunder until such additional indemnity is given.
SECTION 11.2.    [Intentionally omitted.]
SECTION 11.3.    Exculpation. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable to any Lender or Finnvera for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or in connection herewith or therewith, except for its own willful misconduct or gross negligence. Without limitation of the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent (i) may treat the payee of any Note as the holder thereof until the Administrative Agent receives and accepts a Lender Assignment Agreement entered into by the Lender that is the payee of such Note, as assignor, and an Assignee Lender as provided in Section 12.11.1; (ii) may consult with legal counsel (including counsel for the Borrower), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it and in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts; (iii) makes no warranty or representation to any Lender and shall not be responsible to any Lender for any statements, warranties or representations (whether written or oral) made in or in connection with this Agreement; (iv) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance, observance or satisfaction of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement on the part of the Borrower or the existence at any time of any Default or Prepayment Event or to inspect the property (including the books and records) of the Borrower; (v) shall not be responsible to any Lender for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto and (vi) shall incur no liability under or in respect of

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    49



this Agreement by action upon any notice, consent, certificate or other instrument or writing (which may be by telecopier) believed by it to be genuine and signed or sent by the proper party or parties.
SECTION 11.4.    Successor. The Administrative Agent may resign as such at any time upon at least 30 days’ prior notice to the Borrower and all Lenders, provided that any such resignation shall not become effective until a successor Administrative Agent for such resigning Administrative Agent has been appointed as provided in this Section 11.4 and such successor Administrative Agent has accepted such appointment. If the Administrative Agent at any time shall resign, the Required Lenders shall, subject to the consent of the Borrower and FEC, in its capacity as Tranche A Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld in either case), appoint another Lender as a successor to the Administrative Agent which shall thereupon become the Administrative Agent’s successor hereunder (provided that the Required Lenders shall, subject to the consent of the Borrower unless an Event of Default or a Prepayment Event shall have occurred and be continuing (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld) and subject also to the consent of Finnvera (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld) offer to each of the other Tranche B Lenders in turn, in the order of their respective Tranche B Commitment Amounts, the right to become successor Administrative Agent). If no successor Administrative Agent for the resigning Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the resigning Administrative Agent’s giving notice of resignation, then the resigning Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, which shall be one of the Lenders or a commercial banking institution having a combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000 (or the equivalent in other currencies), subject, in each case, to the consent of the Borrower and FEC, in its capacity as Tranche A Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld in either case). Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall be entitled to receive from the resigning Administrative Agent such documents of transfer and assignment as such successor Administrative Agent may reasonably request, and shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all rights, powers, privileges and duties of the resigning Administrative Agent, and the resigning Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Agreement. If no successor shall have accepted its appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder within 30 days after the resignation of the resigning Administrative Agent then the Required Lenders shall cooperate in good faith to execute the duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder and under the Supplemental Agreement and the other Loan Documents and shall be entitled to the rights and indemnities of the Administrative Agent hereunder and the resigning Administrative Agent’s resignation shall be effective upon such date and it shall thereupon be discharged from all of its duties and obligations under this Agreement and the

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    50



other Loan Documents. After any resigning Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder as the Administrative Agent, the provisions of:
(a)    this Article XI shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Administrative Agent under this Agreement; and
(b)    Section 12.3 and Section 12.4 shall continue to inure to its benefit.
If a Lender acting as the Administrative Agent assigns its Loan to one of its Affiliates, the Administrative Agent may, subject to the consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld) assign its rights and obligations as Administrative Agent to such Affiliate.
SECTION 11.5.    Loans by the Administrative Agent . The Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers with respect to (x) the Loan made by it or any of its Affiliates, and (y) the Note held by it or any of its Affiliates as any other Lender and may exercise the same as if it were not the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Borrower as if it were not the Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to disclose information obtained or received by it or any of its Affiliates relating to the Borrower or its Subsidiaries to the extent such information was obtained or received in any capacity other than as the Administrative Agent.
SECTION 11.6.    Credit Decisions. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently of the Administrative Agent, each other Agent and each other Lender, and based on such Lender’s review of the financial information of the Original Borrower and the Borrower, this Agreement, the other Loan Documents (the terms and provisions of which being satisfactory to such Lender) and such other documents, information and investigations as such Lender has deemed appropriate, made its own credit decision to extend its Loan. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently of the Administrative Agent and each other Lender, and based on such other documents, information and investigations as it shall deem appropriate at any time, continue to make its own credit decisions as to exercising or not exercising from time to time any rights and privileges available to it under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
SECTION 11.7.    Copies, etc. The Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice to each Lender of each notice or request required or permitted to be given to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (unless concurrently delivered to the Lenders by the Borrower). The Administrative Agent will distribute to each Lender each document or instrument received for its account and copies of all other communications

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    51



received by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower for distribution to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The Administrative Agent (a) shall give prompt notice to Finnvera of any approvals of Finnvera requested by the Borrower or Lender pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, (b) shall provide Finnvera copies of (i) all amendments, waivers or other modifications to this Agreement and (ii) all information related to the Borrower requested by Finnvera to the extent such information is received from the Borrower and (d) shall give prompt notice to Finnvera of the termination of this Agreement and any prepayment of the Loans hereunder.

ARTICLE XII    

MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
SECTION 12.1.    Waivers, Amendments, etc. The provisions of this Agreement may from time to time be amended, modified or waived, if such amendment, modification or waiver is in writing and consented to by the Borrower, the Required Lenders and Finnvera (in the case of Finnvera, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided that no such amendment, modification or waiver which would:

(b)    reduce any fees described in Article III, extend any date fixed for payment, extend the due date for, or reduce the amount of, any scheduled repayment or prepayment of principal of or interest on any Loan (or reduce the principal amount of or rate of interest on any Loan) shall be made without the consent of each Lender affected thereby and Finnvera; or
(c)    affect the interests, rights or obligations of the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such shall be made without consent of the Administrative Agent.
No failure or delay on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any power or right under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power or right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power or right. No notice to or demand on the Borrower in any case shall entitle it to any notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. No waiver or approval by the Administrative Agent or any Lender under this

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    52



Agreement or any other Loan Document shall, except as may be otherwise stated in such waiver or approval, be applicable to subsequent transactions. No waiver or approval hereunder shall require any similar or dissimilar waiver or approval thereafter to be granted hereunder.
SECTION 12.2.    Notices. (a) All notices and other communications provided to any party hereto under this Agreement shall be in writing or by facsimile and addressed, delivered or transmitted to such party at its address, or facsimile number set forth below its signature hereto or set forth in the Lender Assignment Agreement or such Loan Document or at such other address, or facsimile number as may be designated by such party in a notice to the other parties; provided that notices, information, documents and other materials that the Borrower is required to deliver hereunder may be delivered to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders as specified in Section 12.2(b). Any notice, if mailed and properly addressed with postage prepaid or if properly addressed and sent by pre-paid courier service, shall be deemed given when received.
(b)    So long as BNPPF is the Administrative Agent, the Borrower may provide to the Administrative Agent all information, documents and other materials that it furnishes to the Administrative Agent hereunder or any other Loan Document (and any guaranties, security agreements and other agreements relating thereto), including, without limitation, all notices, requests, financial statements, financial and other reports, certificates and other materials, but excluding any such communication that (i) relates to the payment of any principal or other amount due hereunder or any other Loan Document prior to the scheduled date therefor or (ii) provides notice of any Default or Prepayment Event (all such non-excluded communications being referred to herein collectively as “Communications”), by transmitting the Communications in an electronic/soft medium in a format acceptable to the Administrative Agent to geert.sterck@bnpparibasfortis.com and davina.staessen@bnpparibasfortis.com.
(1)    The Borrower agrees that the Administrative Agent may make such items included in the Communications as the Borrower may specifically agree available to the Lenders by posting such notices, at the option of the Borrower, on Intralinks (the “Platform”). Although the primary web portal is secured with a dual firewall and a User ID/Password Authorization System and the Platform is secured through a single user per deal authorization method whereby each user may access the Platform only on a deal-by-deal basis, the Borrower acknowledges that (i) the distribution of material through an electronic medium is not necessarily secure and that there are confidentiality and other risks associated with such distribution, (ii) the Platform is provided “as is” and “as available” and (iii) neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its Affiliates warrants the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the Communications or the Platform and each expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in the Communications or the Platform.

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    53



(2)    The Administrative Agent agrees that the receipt of Communications by the Administrative Agent at its e-mail address set forth above shall constitute effective delivery of such Communications to the Administrative Agent for purposes hereunder and any other Loan Document (and any guaranties, security agreements and other agreements relating thereto).
(c)    Each Lender agrees that notice to it (as provided in the next sentence) (a “Notice”) specifying that any Communications have been posted to the Platform shall constitute effective delivery of such Communications to such Lender for purposes of this Agreement. Each Lender agrees (i) to notify the Administrative Agent in writing (including by electronic communication) of such Lender’s e-mail address to which a Notice may be sent by electronic transmission on or before the date such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter to ensure that the Administrative Agent has on record an effective e-mail address for such Lender) and (ii) that any Notice may be sent to such e-mail address.

SECTION 12.3.    Payment of Costs and Expenses. The Borrower agrees to pay on demand all reasonable expenses of FEC as assignee, Finnvera and the Administrative Agent (including the reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of counsel to FEC as assignee, counsel to the Administrative Agent and counsel to Finnvera and of local counsel, if any, who may be retained by counsel to FEC as assignee, counsel to the Administrative Agent or counsel to Finnvera) in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of, and any amendments, waivers, consents, supplements or other modifications to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document. The Borrower further agrees to pay, and to save the Administrative Agent, Finnvera and the Lenders harmless from all liability for, any stamp, recording, documentary or other similar taxes which may be payable in connection with the execution or delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the borrowings hereunder or the issuance of the Notes or any other Loan Documents. The Borrower also agrees to reimburse the Administrative Agent, Finnvera and each Lender upon demand for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses) incurred by the Administrative Agent, Finnvera or such Lender in connection with (x) the negotiation of any restructuring or “work-out”, whether or not consummated, of any Obligations and (y) the enforcement of any Obligations or the rights of the Administrative Agent and Finnvera under or in connection with the Loan Documents.
SECTION 12.4.    Indemnification. In consideration of the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents by the Administrative Agent, Finnvera and each Lender and the making of the Loans, the Borrower hereby indemnifies and holds harmless the Administrative Agent,

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    54



Finnvera, each Lender and each of their respective Affiliates and their respective officers, advisors, directors and employees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel), joint or several, that may be incurred by or asserted or awarded against any Indemnified Party (including, without limitation, in connection with any investigation, litigation or proceeding or the preparation of a defense in connection therewith), in each case arising out of or in connection with or by reason of this Agreement, the Notes or the other Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby (including, without limitation, any Taxes (as defined in the Finnvera Guarantee) arising as a result of payments made to Finnvera by the Administrative Agent acting as the Guarantee Holder under the Finnvera Guarantee) or thereby or any actual or proposed use of the proceeds of the Loans (collectively, the “Indemnified Liabilities”), except to the extent such claim, damage, loss, liability or expense is found in a final, non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted primarily from such Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. In the case of an investigation, litigation or other proceeding to which the indemnity in this paragraph applies, such indemnity shall be effective whether or not such investigation, litigation or proceeding is brought by the Borrower, any of its directors, security holders or creditors, an Indemnified Party or any other person or an Indemnified Party is otherwise a party thereto. Each Indemnified Party shall (a) furnish the Borrower with prompt notice of any action, suit or other claim covered by this Section 12.4, (b) not agree to any settlement or compromise of any such action, suit or claim without the Borrower’s prior consent, (c) shall cooperate fully in the Borrower’s defense of any such action, suit or other claim (provided, that the Borrower shall reimburse such Indemnified Party for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred pursuant hereto) and (d) at the Borrower’s request, permit the Borrower to assume control of the defense of any such claim, other than regulatory, supervisory or similar investigations, provided that (i) the Borrower acknowledges in writing its obligations to indemnify the Indemnified Party in accordance with the terms herein in connection with such claims, (ii) the Borrower shall keep the Indemnified Party fully informed with respect to the conduct of the defense of such claim, (iii) the Borrower shall consult in good faith with the Indemnified Party (from time to time and before taking any material decision) about the conduct of the defense of such claim, (iv) the Borrower shall conduct the defense of such claim properly and diligently taking into account its own interests and those of the Indemnified Party, (v) the Borrower shall employ counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party and at the Borrower’s expense, and (vi) the Borrower shall not enter into a settlement with respect to such claim unless either (A) such settlement involves only the payment of a monetary sum, does not include any performance by or an admission of liability or responsibility on the part of the Indemnified Party, and contains a provision unconditionally releasing the Indemnified Party and each other indemnified

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    55



party from, and holding all such persons harmless, against, all liability in respect of claims by any releasing party or (B) the Indemnified Party provides written consent to such settlement (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Notwithstanding the Borrower’s election to assume the defense of such action, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such action and the Borrower shall bear the fees, costs and expenses of such separate counsel if (1) the use of counsel chosen by the Borrower to represent the Indemnified Party would present such counsel with an actual or potential conflict of interest, (2) the actual or potential defendants in, or targets of, any such action include both the Borrower and the Indemnified Party, and the Indemnified Party shall have concluded that there may be legal defenses available to it which are different from or additional to those available to the Borrower and determined that it is necessary to employ separate counsel in order to pursue such defenses (in which case the Borrower shall not have the right to assume the defense of such action on the Indemnified Party’s behalf), (3) the Borrower shall not have employed counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party to represent the Indemnified Party within a reasonable time after notice of the institution of such action, or (4) the Borrower authorizes the Indemnified Party to employ separate counsel at the Borrower’s expense. The Borrower acknowledges that none of the Indemnified Parties shall have any liability (whether direct or indirect, in contract, tort or otherwise) to the Borrower or any of its security holders or creditors for or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, except to the extent such liability is determined in a final non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted primarily from such Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. In no event, however, shall any Indemnified Party be liable on any theory of liability for any special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (including, without limitation, any loss of profits, business or anticipated savings). If and to the extent that the foregoing undertaking may be unenforceable for any reason, the Borrower hereby agrees to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the Indemnified Liabilities which is permissible under applicable law.
SECTION 12.5.    Survival. The obligations of the Borrower under Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 12.3 and 12.4, and the obligations of the Lenders under Section 11.1, shall in each case survive any termination of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the payment in full of all Obligations. The representations and warranties made by the Borrower in this Agreement shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement.
SECTION 12.6.    Severability. Any provision of this Agreement or the Notes which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such provision and such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions of

(each Person described in either of the foregoing clauses as being the Person to whom such assignment and delegation is to be made, being hereinafter referred to as an “Assignee Lender”), all or any fraction of such Lender’s Loan (which assignment and delegation shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of all the assigning Lender’s Loan) in a minimum aggregate amount of $25,000,000 (or, if less, all of such Lender’s Loan); provided that no Lender shall assign and delegate all or any fraction of such Lender’s Loan without the prior written consent of Finnvera, except that Finnvera’s consent shall not be required for the assignment of the Tranche A Loan to an Eligible Assignee; provided, further, that the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with the interests so assigned and delegated to an Assignee Lender until:

If requested by the applicable Lender under Section 2.5, within five Business Days after its receipt of notice that the Administrative Agent has received an executed Lender Assignment Agreement, the Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent (for delivery to the relevant Assignee Lender) a new Note evidencing such Assignee Lender’s assigned Loan and, if the assignor Lender has retained any portion of its Loan hereunder, a replacement Note in the principal

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    58



amount of the portion of the Loan retained by the assignor Lender hereunder (such Note to be in exchange for, but not in payment of, that Note then held by such assignor Lender). Each such Note shall be dated the date of the predecessor Note. The assignor Lender shall mark the predecessor Note “exchanged” and deliver it to the Borrower concurrently with the delivery by the Borrower of the new Note(s). Such assignor Lender or such Assignee Lender must also pay a processing fee to the Administrative Agent upon delivery of any Lender Assignment Agreement in the amount of $3,500 (and shall also reimburse the Administrative Agent for any reasonable out-of-pocket costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, incurred in connection with the assignment).
SECTION 12.11.2.    Participations. Any Lender may at any time sell to one or more commercial banks or other financial institutions (each of such commercial banks and other financial institutions being herein called a “Participant”) participating interests in any of its Loan or other interests of such Lender hereunder; provided that no Lender shall sell participating interests in any of its Loan or other interests of such Lender hereunder without the prior written consent of Finnvera; provided, further, that:
(a)    no participation contemplated in this Section 12.11 shall relieve such Lender from its obligations hereunder;
(b)    such Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations;
(c)    the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents;
(d)    no Participant, unless such Participant is an Affiliate of such Lender, shall be entitled to require such Lender to take or refrain from taking any action hereunder or under any other Loan Document, except that such Lender may agree with any Participant that such Lender will not, without such Participant’s consent, take any actions of the type described in Section 12.1(c); and
(e)    the Borrower shall not be required to pay any amount under Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay had no participating interest been sold.
The Borrower acknowledges and agrees that each Participant, for purposes of Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and clause (h) of 7.1.1, shall be considered a Lender.
SECTION 12.12.    Other Transactions. Nothing contained herein shall preclude the Administrative Agent or any Lender from engaging in any transaction, in addition to those contemplated by this Agreement or any other Loan Document, with the Borrower or any of its Affiliates in which the Borrower or such Affiliate is not restricted hereby from engaging with any other Person.

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    59



SECTION 12.13.    Forum Selection and Consent to Jurisdiction. THE BORROWER HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE NONEXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK FOR THE COUNTY OF NEW YORK AND OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK FOR THE PURPOSE OF ANY LITIGATION BASED HEREON, OR ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT TO WHICH IT IS A PARTY AND IRREVOCABLY AGREES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, TO BE BOUND BY ANY FINAL JUDGMENT RENDERED THEREBY IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH LITIGATION. THE BORROWER FURTHER IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE SERVICE OF PROCESS BY REGISTERED MAIL, POSTAGE PREPAID, OR BY PERSONAL SERVICE WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE STATE OF NEW YORK. THE BORROWER HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY OBJECTION WHICH IT MAY HAVE OR HEREAFTER MAY HAVE TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY SUCH LITIGATION BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT REFERRED TO ABOVE AND ANY CLAIM THAT ANY SUCH LITIGATION HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT SHALL AFFECT ANY RIGHT THAT ANY PARTY MAY OTHERWISE HAVE TO BRING ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT IN THE COURTS OF ANY JURISDICTION. TO THE EXTENT THAT THE BORROWER HAS OR HEREAFTER MAY ACQUIRE ANY IMMUNITY FROM JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT OF FROM ANY LEGAL PROCESS (WHETHER THROUGH SERVICE OR NOTICE, ATTACHMENT PRIOR TO JUDGMENT, ATTACHMENT IN AID OF EXECUTION OR OTHERWISE) WITH RESPECT TO ITSELF OR ITS PROPERTY, THE BORROWER HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, SUCH IMMUNITY IN RESPECT OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS TO WHICH IT IS A PARTY.
SECTION 12.14.    Process Agent. If at any time the Borrower ceases to have a place of business in the United States, the Borrower shall appoint an agent for service of process (reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent) located in New York City and shall furnish to the Administrative Agent evidence that such agent shall have accepted such appointment for a period of time ending no earlier than one year after the latest Stated Maturity Date.
SECTION 12.15.    Judgment. (a) If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder in on currency (the “Primary Currency”) into another currency (the “Secondary

NYDOCS01/1357662.2    60



Currency”), the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent could purchase the Primary Currency with such Secondary Currency at BNP Paribas’s principal office in London at 11:00 A.M. (London time) on the second Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given.
(b)    The obligation of the Borrower in respect of any sum due from it in any Primary Currency to any Lender or the Administrative Agent hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in any other currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be), of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Secondary Currency, such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the applicable Primary Currency with the Secondary Currency; if the amount of the applicable Primary Currency so purchased is less than such sum due to such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) in the applicable Primary Currency, the Borrower agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) against such loss, and if the amount of the applicable Primary Currency so purchased exceeds such sum due to any Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) in the applicable Primary Currency, such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) agrees to remit to the Borrower such excess.
SECTION 12.16.    Waiver of Jury Trial. THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, THE LENDERS AND THE BORROWER HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS THEY MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION BASED HEREON, OR ARISING OUT OF, UNDER, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IT HAS RECEIVED FULL AND SUFFICIENT CONSIDERATION FOR THIS PROVISION (AND EACH OTHER PROVISION OF EACH OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT) AND THAT THIS PROVISION IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR EACH OTHER PARTY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND EACH OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT.
