Section 1.4.    Accounting and Financial Determinations. Unless otherwise specified, all accounting terms used herein or in any other Loan Document shall be interpreted, all accounting determinations and computations hereunder or thereunder (including under Section 6.2.4) shall be made, and all financial statements required to be delivered hereunder or thereunder shall be prepared, in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") consistently applied (or, if not consistently applied, accompanied by details of the inconsistencies); provided that if the Borrower elects to apply or is required to apply International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") accounting principles in lieu of GAAP, upon any such election and notice to the Administrative Agent, references herein to GAAP shall thereafter be construed to mean IFRS (except as otherwise provided in this Agreement); provided, further, that if, as a result of (i) any change in GAAP or IFRS or in the interpretation thereof or (ii) the application by the Borrower of IFRS in lieu of GAAP, in each case, after the date of the financial statements referred to in Section 5.6, there is a change in the manner of



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
determining any of the items referred to herein that are to be determined by reference to GAAP, and the effect of such change would (in the reasonable opinion of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) be such as to affect the basis or efficacy of the covenants contained in Section 6.2.4 in ascertaining the financial condition of the Borrower or the consolidated financial condition of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries and the Borrower notifies the Administrative Agent that the Borrower requests an amendment to any provision hereof to eliminate such change occurring after the date hereof in GAAP or the application thereof on the operation of such provision (or if the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower that the Required Lenders request an amendment to any provision hereof for such purpose), then such item shall for the purposes of such Sections of this Agreement continue to be determined in accordance with GAAP relating thereto as GAAP were applied immediately prior to such change in GAAP or in the interpretation thereof until such notice shall have been withdrawn or such provision amended in accordance herewith. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all obligations of any person that are or would be characterized as operating lease obligations in accordance with GAAP as in effect on December 31, 2018 (whether or not such operating lease obligations were in effect on such date) shall continue to be accounted for as operating lease obligations for purposes of this Agreement regardless of any change in GAAP following December 31, 2018 that would otherwise require such obligations to be recharacterized (on a prospective or retroactive basis or otherwise) as capitalized leases; provided that, for clarification purposes, operating leases recorded as liabilities on the balance sheet due to a change in accounting treatment, or otherwise, shall for all purposes not be treated as Indebtedness, Capital Lease Obligations or Capitalized Lease Liabilities.
ARTICLE II

COMMITMENTS, BORROWING PROCEDURES AND NOTES
Section 2.1.    The Advances.  Each Lender severally agrees, on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, to make Advances to the Borrower on the Effective Date, in an amount not to exceed such Lender's Commitment. The Borrowing to be made on the Effective Date shall be in an amount not less than $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof and shall consist of Advances of the same Type made on the same day by the Lenders ratably according to their respective Commitments. Amounts borrowed hereunder and prepaid or repaid may not be reborrowed.
Section 2.2.    Making the Advances. (a) Each Borrowing shall be made on notice, given not later than (x) 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the second Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Borrowing in the case of a Borrowing consisting of SOFR Advances or (y) 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of the proposed Borrowing in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Base Rate Advances, by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent by telecopier or other electronic transmission, which shall give to each Lender prompt notice (in the case of a proposed Borrowing consisting of Base Rate Advances, by 12:00 P.M. (New York City time)) thereof by telecopier or other electronic transmission.  Each such notice of a Borrowing (a "Notice of Borrowing") shall be by telephone, confirmed promptly in writing, telecopier or other electronic transmission in substantially the form of Exhibit B hereto, specifying therein the requested (i) date of such Borrowing, (ii) Type of Advances comprising such Borrowing, (iii) aggregate amount of such Borrowing, and (iv) in the case of a Borrowing consisting of SOFR Advances, initial Interest Period for each such Advance.  Each Lender shall, before 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of such Borrowing, in the case of a Borrowing consisting of SOFR Advances and before 1:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the date of such Borrowing, in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Base Rate Advances, make available for the account of its Applicable Lending Office to the Administrative Agent at the applicable



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
Administrative Agent's Account, in same day funds, such Lender's ratable portion of such Borrowing.  After the Administrative Agent's receipt of such funds and upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 4.2 the Administrative Agent will make such funds available to the Borrower at the account of the Borrower specified in the applicable Notice of Borrowing.
(b)    [Intentionally omitted].
(c)    Anything in subsection (a) above to the contrary notwithstanding, (i) the Borrower may not select SOFR Advances for any Borrowing if the aggregate amount of such Borrowing is less than $5,000,000 or if the obligation of the Lenders to make SOFR Advances shall then be suspended pursuant to Section 2.8 or 3.1 and (ii) the SOFR Advances may not be outstanding as part of more than 15 separate Borrowings.
(d)    Each Notice of Borrowing shall be irrevocable and binding on the Borrower.  In the case of any Borrowing that the related Notice of Borrowing specifies is to be comprised of SOFR Advances, the Borrower shall indemnify each Lender in accordance with Section 3.4.
(e)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the time of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender's ratable portion of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such portion available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section 2.2, and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower on such date a corresponding amount.  If and to the extent that such Lender shall not have so made such ratable portion available to the Administrative Agent, such Lender and the Borrower severally agree to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to the Borrower until the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of the Borrower, the interest rate applicable at the time to the Advances comprising such Borrowing and (ii) in the case of such Lender the Federal Funds Rate.  If such Lender shall repay to the Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount so repaid shall constitute such Lender's Advance as part of such Borrowing for purposes of this Agreement.
(f)    The failure of any Lender to make the Advance to be made by it as part of any Borrowing shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Advance on the date of such Borrowing, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make the Advance to be made by such other Lender on the date of any Borrowing.
(g)    If any Lender shall default in its obligations under Section 2.1, the Agents shall, at the request of the Borrower, use reasonable efforts to find a bank or other financial institution acceptable to the Borrower and reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent to replace such Lender on terms acceptable to the Borrower and to have such bank or other financial institution replace such Lender.
(h)    Each Lender may, if it so elects, fulfill its obligation to make or continue Advances hereunder by causing one of its foreign branches or Affiliates (or an international banking facility created by such Lender) to make or maintain such Advance; provided that such Advance shall nonetheless be deemed to have been made and to be held by such Lender, and the obligation of the Borrower to repay such Advance shall nevertheless be to such Lender for the account of such foreign branch, Affiliate or international banking facility.



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
(i)    Except as otherwise provided herein, a SOFR Advance may be continued or converted only on the last day of an Interest Period for such SOFR Advance. During the existence of a Default, (i) no Non-Extended Advances may be requested as, converted to or continued as SOFR Advances without the consent of the Required Lenders and (ii) no Extended Advances may be requested as, converted to or continued as SOFR Advances without the consent of the Required Extended Lenders.
(j)    The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for SOFR Advances upon determination of such interest rate.
(k)    After giving effect to all Borrowings, all conversions of Advances from one Type to the other, and all continuations of Advances as the same Type, there shall not be more than ten Interest Periods in effect with respect to the Advances.
(l)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Lender may exchange, continue or rollover all of the portion of its Advances in connection with any refinancing, extension, loan modification or similar transaction permitted by the terms of this Agreement, pursuant to a cashless settlement mechanism approved by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and such Lender.
(m)    With respect to SOFR or Term SOFR, the Administrative Agent will have the right, in consultation with the Borrower, to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein 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 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 Borrower and the Lenders promptly and in any event not later than two Business Days after such amendment becomes effective.

Section 2.4.    [Intentionally omitted].
Section 2.5.    [Intentionally omitted].
Section 2.6.    Repayment of Advances. The Borrower shall repay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender on the applicable Maturity Date the aggregate principal amount of the Non-Extended Advances and Extended Advances, as applicable, made by such Lender and then outstanding.

(i)    Base Rate Advances.  During such periods as such Advance is a Base Rate Advance, a rate per annum equal at all times to the result of (x) the Base Rate in effect from time to time plus (y) the Applicable Margin for the applicable Base Rate Advances in effect from time to time, payable in arrears quarterly on the last day of each March, June, September and December during such periods and on the date such Base Rate Advance shall be Converted or paid in full.



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
(ii)    SOFR Advances.  During such periods as such Advance is a SOFR Advance, a rate per annum equal at all times during each Interest Period for such Advance to the result of (x) the SOFR for such Interest Period for such SOFR Advance plus (y) the Applicable Margin for the applicable SOFR Advances in effect from time to time, payable in arrears on the last day of such Interest Period and, if such Interest Period has a duration of more than three months, on each day that occurs during such Interest Period every three months from the first day of such Interest Period and on the date such SOFR Advance shall be Converted or paid in full.
(b)    Default Interest.  After the date any principal amount of any Advance is due and payable (whether on the applicable Maturity Date, upon acceleration or otherwise), or after any other monetary Obligation of the Borrower shall have become due and payable, the Borrower shall pay, but only to the extent permitted by law, interest (after as well as before judgment) on (i) the unpaid principal amount of each Advance owing to each Lender, payable in arrears on the dates referred to in clause (a)(i) or (a)(ii) above, at a rate per annum equal at all times to 2% per annum above the rate per annum required to be paid on such Advance pursuant to clause (a)(i) or (a)(ii) above and (ii) to the fullest extent permitted by law, the amount of any interest, fee or other amount payable hereunder that is not paid when due, from the date such amount shall be due until such amount shall be paid in full, payable in arrears on the date such amount shall be paid in full and on demand, at a rate per annum equal at all times to 2% per annum above the rate per annum required to be paid on Base Rate Advances pursuant to clause (a)(i) above as certified by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower (which certification shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error).
Section 2.8.    Interest Rate Determination.  (a) The Administrative Agent shall furnish to the Borrower and to the Lenders each determination of SOFR.
(b)    If the Borrower shall fail to select the duration of any Interest Period for any SOFR Advances in accordance with the provisions contained in the definition of "Interest Period" in Section 1.1, the Administrative Agent will forthwith so notify the Borrower and the Lenders and such Advances shall, on such last day, automatically be continued as an Advance with an Interest Period having a duration of one month.
Section 2.9.    Optional Conversion of Advances.  The Borrower may on any Business Day, upon notice given to the Administrative Agent in substantially the form of Exhibit C not later than 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the second Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Conversion and subject to the provisions of Sections 2.8 and 3.1, Convert all Advances of one Type comprising the same Borrowing into Advances of the other Type; provided, however, that any Conversion of SOFR Advances into Base Rate Advances shall be made only on the last day of an Interest Period for such SOFR Advances, any Conversion of Base Rate Advances into SOFR Advances shall be in an amount not less than the minimum amount specified in Section 2.2(c) and no Conversion of any Advances shall result in more separate Borrowings than permitted under Section 2.2(c).  Each such notice of a Conversion shall, within the restrictions specified above, specify (i) the date of such Conversion, (ii) the Advances to be Converted, and (iii) if such Conversion is into SOFR Advances, the duration of the initial Interest Period for each such Advance.  Each notice of Conversion shall be irrevocable and binding on the Borrower.
Section 2.10.    Prepayments of Advances.




WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
Section 2.10.1    Optional Prepayments of Advances.  The Borrower may, upon notice at least two Business Days prior to the date of such prepayment, in the case of SOFR Advances, and not later than 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date of such prepayment, in the case of Base Rate Advances, to the Administrative Agent stating the proposed date and aggregate principal amount of the prepayment, and if such notice is given the Borrower shall, prepay the outstanding principal amount of the Advances comprising part of the same Borrowing in whole or (except with respect to the prepayment of Advances contemplated by the 20212 Extension Amendment and in connection with any subsequent repayment of no more than 20% of the outstanding Advances held by a Lender converting its Non-Extended Advances into Extended Advances pursuant to Section 2.14 substantially concurrently with such conversion that occurs no later than one week after the Amendment Effective Date) ratably in part, together with accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the principal amount prepaid; provided, however, that each partial prepayment of SOFR Advances shall be in an aggregate principal amount of not less than $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof and in the event of any such prepayment of a SOFR Advance, the Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse the Lenders in respect thereof pursuant to Section 3.4. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall not be permitted to prepay Non-Extended Advances pursuant to this Section 2.10 unless the Extended Advances have been (or are concurrently being) prepaid in full (other than any repayment of no more than 20% of the outstanding Advances held by a Lender converting its Non-Extended Advances into Extended Advances pursuant to Section 2.14 substantially concurrently with such conversion that occurs no later than one week after the Amendment Effective Date)..
Section 2.10.2    Mandatory Prepayments of Extended Advances. Within 10 Business Days of any RCF Commitment Reduction, the Borrower shall make a prepayment in respect of the Extended Advances ratably in an amount equal to the applicable RCF Commitment Reduction Prepayment Amount, together with accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the principal amount of Extended Advances so prepaid, and in the event of any such prepayment of a SOFR Advance, the Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse the Lenders in respect thereof pursuant to Section 3.4.
Section 2.11.    Payments and Computations.  (a)  The Borrower shall make each payment hereunder, irrespective of any right of counterclaim or set-off, not later than 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the day when due in Dollars to the Administrative Agent at the applicable Administrative Agent's Account in same day funds.  The Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter cause to be distributed like funds relating to the payment of principal or interest or fees ratably (other than amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7) to the applicable Lenders for the account of their respective Applicable Lending Offices, and like funds relating to the payment of any other amount payable to any Lender to such Lender for the account of its Applicable Lending Office, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  Upon any Added Lender becoming a Lender hereunder as a result of an exercise of the Increase Option pursuant to Section 2.14, and upon the Administrative Agent's receipt of such Lender's Added Lender Agreement and recording of the information contained therein in the Register, from and after the applicable Increase Option Date, the Administrative Agent shall make all payments hereunder and under any Notes issued in connection therewith in respect of the interest assumed thereby to the Added Lender. Upon its acceptance of a Lender Assignment Agreement and recording of the information contained therein in the Register pursuant to Section 11.11.3, from and after the effective date specified in such Lender Assignment Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall make all payments hereunder and under the Notes in respect of the interest assigned thereby to the Lender assignee thereunder, and the parties to such Lender Assignment Agreement shall make all appropriate adjustments in such payments for periods prior to such effective date directly between themselves.



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
(b)    All computations of interest based on the Base Rate (including Base Rate determined by reference to the SOFR or the Federal Funds Rate) shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and all computations of interest based on the SOFR or the Federal Funds Rate and of fees shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days, in each case for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest or fees are payable.  Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
(c)    Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Notes shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day; provided, however, that, if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of SOFR Advances to be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next preceding Business Day and provided, further, that any such adjustment to the payment date shall in each case be made in the computation of payment of interest or fee, as the case may be.
(d)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders, as the case may be, the amount due.
With respect to any payment that the Administrative Agent makes for the account of the Lenders 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 Borrower has not in fact made such payment; (2) the Administrative Agent has made a payment in excess of the amount so paid by the Borrower (whether or not then owed); or (3) the Administrative agent has for any reason otherwise erroneously made such payment; then each of the Lenders, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount so distributed to such Lender, 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.; provided that this Section 2.11(d) shall not be interpreted to increase (or accelerate the due date for), or have the effect of increasing (or accelerating the due date for), the Obligations relative to the amount (and/or timing for payment) of the Obligations that would have been payable had such payment not been made by the Administrative Agent.
A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Lender or the Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this clause (d) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(e)    To the extent that the Administrative Agent receives funds for application to the amounts owing by the Borrower under or in respect of this Agreement or any Note in currencies other than the currency or currencies required to enable the Administrative Agent to distribute funds to the Lenders in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.11, the Administrative Agent, to the extent permitted by applicable law, shall be entitled to convert or exchange such funds into Dollars to the extent necessary to enable the Administrative Agent to distribute such funds in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.11; provided that the Borrower and each of the Lenders hereby agree that the Administrative Agent shall not be liable or responsible for any loss, cost or expense suffered by the Borrower or such Lender as a result of any conversion or



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
exchange of currencies affected pursuant to this Section 2.11(e) or as a result of the failure of the Administrative Agent to effect any such conversion or exchange; and provided further that the Borrower agrees, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender, and hold the Administrative Agent and each Lender harmless, for any and all losses, costs and expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent or any Lender for any conversion or exchange of currencies (or the failure to convert or exchange any currencies) in accordance with this Section 2.11(e).
Section 2.12.    Sharing of Payments, Etc. If any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) on account of the Advances owing to it (other than (x) pursuant to Section 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7, (y) any payments made in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement at any time that a Defaulting Lender exists or in accordance with Section 2.10 and (z) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Commitments or Advances in accordance with Section 2.15, Section 11.11.1 or Section 11.11.2) in excess of its Ratable Share of payments on account of the relevant Advances obtained by all the applicable Lenders, such Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other applicable Lenders such participations in the Advances owing to them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and such Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Lender's required repayment to (ii) 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 2.12 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.
Section 2.13.    Evidence of Debt.  (a)  Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Advance owing to such Lender from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder in respect of Advances.  The Borrower agrees that upon notice by any Lender to the Borrower (with a copy of such notice to the Administrative Agent) to the effect that a Note is required or appropriate in order for such Lender to evidence (whether for purposes of pledge, enforcement or otherwise) the Advances owing to, or to be made by, such Lender, the Borrower shall promptly execute and deliver to such Lender a Note payable to such Lender in a principal amount up to the Commitment of such Lender.
(b)    The Register maintained by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 11.11.3 shall include a control account, and a subsidiary account for each Lender, in which accounts (taken together) shall be recorded (i) the date, currency and amount of each Borrowing made hereunder, the Type of Advances comprising such Borrowing and, if appropriate, the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the terms of each Lender Assignment Agreement delivered to and accepted by it, (iii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iv) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower hereunder and each Lender's share thereof.
(c)    Entries made in good faith by the Administrative Agent in the Register pursuant to subsection (b) above, and by each Lender in its account or accounts pursuant to



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
subsection (a) above, shall be prima facie evidence of the amount of principal and interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to, in the case of the Register, each Lender and, in the case of such account or accounts, such Lender, under this Agreement, absent manifest error.
Section 2.14.    Increase Option.  (a) The Borrower shall have the right up to six months prior to the latest Maturity Date, by notice to the Administrative Agent, to effectuate on one or more occasions, additional Extended Advances under this Agreement (such right to increase, the "Increase Option") by adding to this Agreement one or more commercial banks or financial institutions (who shall, upon completion of the requirements of this Section 2.14 constitute "Lenders" hereunder) (an "Added Lender"), or by allowing one or more Lenders in their sole discretion to make additional Advances hereunder or convert their respective Non-Extended Advances hereunder into Extended Advances (each an "Increasing Lender"); provided that (x) no additional Advance on any occasion shall be less than $10,000,000, (y) no additional Advances pursuant to this Section 2.14 shall result in aggregate Advances exceeding $1,350,000,000, and (z) no Lender shall be required to convert or make any additional Advances under this Section 2.14 without the consent of such Lender. The Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent on or before the applicable Increase Option Date each of the following items with respect to each Added Lender and Increasing Lender:
(i)    a written notice of the Borrower's intention to increase the aggregate amount of Extended Advances pursuant to this Section 2.14, which shall specify each Added Lender and the amount of such Added Lender's Advance (if any), each Increasing Lender and the amount of the additional and converted Advances of such Increasing Lender (if any), and such other information as is reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent;
(i)    documents in the form of Exhibit E or Exhibit F, as applicable, executed and delivered by each Added Lender and each Increasing Lender, pursuant to which such Lender becomes a party hereto, converts an Advance or makes an additional Advance, as the case may be; and
(ii)    if requested by the applicable Lender, Notes or replacement Notes, as the case may be, executed and delivered by the Borrower.
Upon receipt of any notice referred to in clause (a)(i) above, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender thereof.  Upon execution and delivery of such documents (the "Increase Option Date"), such new Lender shall constitute a "Lender" hereunder with an Advance as specified therein, or such Increasing Lender's Advance shall increase (or be converted) as specified therein, as the case may be.  Immediately upon the effectiveness of the addition of such Added Lender or the increase in (or conversion of) the Advance of such Increasing Lender under this Section 2.14, the respective Ratable Shares of the applicable Lenders shall be deemed modified as appropriate to correspond to such changed aggregate Advances.
The Borrower shall borrow up to the full amount of the additional Advances in accordance with Section 2.2 on the Increase Option Date.
Section 2.15.    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    If the Borrower and the Administrative Agent agree in writing in their reasonable determination that a Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender,



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral or letters of credit), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Advances of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Advances to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Ratable Shares, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender's having been a Defaulting Lender.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, any payment of principal, interest or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of any Defaulting Lender under this Agreement (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VII or otherwise) shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows:  first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default and no Prepayment Event shall have occurred and be continuing), to the funding of any Advance in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; third, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; fourth, so long as no Default and no Prepayment Event shall have occurred and be continuing, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and fifth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Advance in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Advances were made at a time when the applicable conditions set forth in Article IV were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Advances of all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Advances of such Defaulting Lender and provided further that any amounts held as cash collateral for funding obligations of a Defaulting Lender shall be returned to such Defaulting Lender upon the termination of this Agreement and the satisfaction of such Defaulting Lender's obligations hereunder.  Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this Section 2.15 shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
Section 2.16.    Inability to Determine Rates. If in connection with any request for a SOFR Advance or a conversion of Base Rate Advances to SOFR Advances or a continuation of any of such Advances, as applicable, (i) the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (A) no Successor Rate has been determined in accordance with Section 2.17, and the circumstances under clause (i) of Section 2.17(a) or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred, or (B) adequate and reasonable means do not otherwise exist for determining Term SOFR for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Term SOFR Advance or in connection with an existing or proposed Base Rate Advance, or (ii) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders determine that for any reason that Term SOFR for any requested Interest Period with respect to a



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
proposed Advance does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Advance, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender.
    Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain SOFR Advances, or to convert Base Rate Advances to SOFR Advances, shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected SOFR Advances or Interest Periods), and (y) in the event of a determination described in the preceding sentence with respect to the Term SOFR component of the Base Rate, the utilization of the Term SOFR component in determining the Base Rate shall be suspended, in each case until the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of a determination by the Required Lenders described in clause (ii) of this Section 2.16, until the Administrative Agent upon instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice.
    Upon receipt of such notice, (i) the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, or conversion to, or continuation of SOFR Advances (to the extent of the affected SOFR Advances or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of, or conversion to, Base Rate Advances in the amount specified therein and (ii) any outstanding affected SOFR Advances shall be deemed to have been converted to Base Rate Advances immediately at the end of their respective applicable Interest Period.
Section 2.17.    Benchmark Replacement Setting.
(a)    Benchmark Replacement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Borrower or Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the case of the Required Lenders, a copy to the Borrower) that the Borrower or Required Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that:
(i)    adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining one month, three month and six month interest periods of Term SOFR, including, without limitation, because the Term SOFR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or
(ii)    CME or any successor administrator of the Term SOFR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent or such administrator with respect to its publication of Term SOFR, in each case acting in such capacity, has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which one month, three month and six month interest periods 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 U.S. dollar denominated syndicated loans, or shall or will otherwise cease, provided that, at the time of such statement, there is no successor administrator that is satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, that will continue to provide such interest periods of Term SOFR after such specific date (the latest date on which one month, three month and six month interest periods of Term SOFR or the Term SOFR Screen Rate are no longer available permanently or indefinitely, the "Scheduled Unavailability Date");
then, on a date and time determined by the Administrative Agent (any such date, the "Term SOFR Replacement Date"), which date shall be at the end of an Interest Period or on the relevant interest payment date, as applicable, for interest calculated and, solely with respect to clause (ii) above, no later than the Scheduled Unavailability Date, Term SOFR will be replaced hereunder and under any Loan Document with Daily Simple SOFR plus the Term SOFR Adjustment for any payment period for interest calculated that can be determined by the Administrative Agent,



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
in each case, without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document (the "Successor Rate").
If the Successor Rate is Daily Simple SOFR plus the Term SOFR Adjustment, all interest payments will be payable on a monthly basis.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (i) if the Administrative Agent determines that Daily Simple SOFR is not available on or prior to the Term SOFR Replacement Date, or (ii) if the events or circumstances of the type described in Section 2.17(a)(i) or (ii) have occurred with respect to the Successor Rate then in effect, then in each case, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may amend this Agreement solely for the purpose of replacing Term SOFR or any then current Successor Rate in accordance with this Section 2.17 at the end of any Interest Period, relevant interest payment date or payment period for interest 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 denominated credit facilities syndicated and agented in the United States for such benchmark, which adjustment or method for calculating such adjustment shall be published on an information service as selected by the Administrative Agent from time to time in its reasonable discretion and may be periodically updated. For the avoidance of doubt, any such proposed rate and adjustments, shall constitute a “Successor Rate”. Any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrower unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Required Lenders object to such amendment.
The Administrative Agent will promptly (in one or more notices) notify the Borrower and each Lender of the implementation of any Successor Rate.
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.

Notwithstanding anything else herein, if at any time any Successor Rate as so determined would otherwise be less than 0.00%, the Successor Rate will be deemed to be 0.00% for the purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

For purposes of this Section 2.17, those Lenders that either have not made, or do not have an obligation under this Agreement to make, the relevant Advances in Dollars shall be excluded from any determination of Required Lenders.
(b)    Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. In connection with the implementation of a Successor Rate, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein 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; provided that, with respect to any such amendment effected, the Administrative Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes to the Borrower and the Lenders reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective.

ARTICLE III

CERTAIN SOFR AND OTHER PROVISIONS
Section 3.1.    SOFR Lending Unlawful.  If any Lender determines that any law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Advances whose interest is determined by reference to SOFR or Term SOFR, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon SOFR or Term SOFR, then, upon notice thereof by such Lender to the Borrower (through the Administrative Agent), (a) any obligation of such Lender to make or continue SOFR Advances or to convert Base Rate Advances to SOFR Advances shall be suspended, and (b) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining Base Rate Advances the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Term SOFR component of the Base Rate, the interest rate on which Base Rate Advances of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Term SOFR component of the Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (i) the Borrower shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable, convert all SOFR Advances of such Lender to Base Rate Advances (the interest rate on which Base Rate Advances of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Term SOFR component of the Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such SOFR Advance to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such SOFR Advance and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon SOFR, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Term SOFR component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon SOFR. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted, together with any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.5.
Section 3.2.    [Reserved]. 
Section 3.3.    Increased Costs, etc. If a change in any applicable treaty, law, regulation or regulatory requirement (including by introduction or adoption of any new 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, and for the avoidance of doubt, including any changes resulting from (i) requests, rules, guidelines or directives concerning capital adequacy or liquidity issued in connection with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and (ii) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, and in each case for both clauses (i) and (ii), regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued) of any governmental or other authority including, without limitation, any agency of the United States or the United Kingdom, 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 commitment to lend and other commitments of such type or any part thereof imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any jurisdiction



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
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 3.6, 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, liquidity or capital adequacy requirements (other than the reserve costs described in Section 3.7) 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 commitment to lend hereunder,
and the result of any of the foregoing is either (i) to increase the cost to such Lender of making Advances or maintaining its Commitment 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 Applicable 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 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.



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
Section 3.4.    Funding Losses.  In the event any Lender shall incur any loss or expense (other than loss of profits, business or anticipated savings) by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to make, continue or maintain any portion of the principal amount of any Advance as a SOFR Advance as a result of:
(a)    any conversion or repayment or prepayment of the principal amount of any SOFR Advances on a date other than the scheduled last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, whether pursuant to Section 3.1 or otherwise; or
(b)    any SOFR Advances not being made in accordance with the Notice of Borrowing therefor due to the fault of the Borrower or as a result of any of the conditions precedent set forth in Article IV not being satisfied,
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 include calculations in reasonable detail setting forth the loss or expense to such Lender.
Section 3.5.    Increased Capital Costs.  If 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 and for the avoidance of doubt, including any changes resulting from (i) requests, rules, guidelines or directives concerning capital adequacy or liquidity issued in connection with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and (ii) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, and in each case for both clauses (i) and (ii), regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued) 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 its Commitments or the Advances 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 or liquidity 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 Applicable 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 Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
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 3.6.    Taxes.  All payments by the Borrower of principal of, and interest on, the Advances and all other amounts payable hereunder 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, with respect to each Lender, taxes imposed on or measured by such Lender's net income or receipts and franchise taxes imposed in lieu of net income taxes or taxes on receipts, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Lender is organized or any political subdivision thereof or the jurisdiction of such Lender's Applicable 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, and any taxes imposed under FATCA (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 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 the Lenders such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by each Lender will equal the full amount such Lender would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required.
Moreover, if any Taxes are directly asserted against the Administrative Agent or any Lender with respect to any payment received by the Administrative Agent or such Lender hereunder, the Administrative Agent or such Lender may pay such 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 amount) shall equal the amount such Person would have received had no such Taxes been asserted.
Any Lender 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 Applicable 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 Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.
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 the respective Lenders, the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders for



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
any incremental withholding Taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by any Lender as a result of any such failure (so long as such amount did not become payable as a result of the failure of 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 3.6, a distribution hereunder by the Administrative Agent or any Lender to or for the account of 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 3.6 or by reason of any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 3.3, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to obtain such refund, credit, deduction or other reduction and, promptly after receipt 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) agrees with the Borrower and the Administrative Agent that it will (i) in the case of a Lender or a Participant that is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States (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, an Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E claiming the benefits of a tax treaty, 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 as provided for in Section 11.11.1 or Participant, on or prior to the date of the relevant assignment or participation) in each case attached to an Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY, if appropriate, (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 and (c) provide such other tax forms or other documents as shall be prescribed by applicable law, if any, or as otherwise reasonably requested, to demonstrate, to the extent applicable, that payments to such Lender (or Participant) hereunder are exempt from withholding under FATCA, and (ii) in all cases, provide such forms, certificates or other documents or information, as and when reasonably requested by the Borrower, necessary to claim any applicable exemption from, or reduction of, Taxes or any payments made to or for benefit of such Lender or such Participant, provided that the Lender or Participant is legally able to deliver such forms, certificates or other documents.  For 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 (which, in the case of an assignee as provided for in Section 11.11.1, would be the date on which the original assignor was required to provide such form) or if such form otherwise is not required hereunder) such Lender (or Participant) shall not be entitled to the benefits of this Section 3.6 with respect to Taxes imposed by reason of such failure.
Section 3.7.    Reserve Costs.  Without in any way limiting the Borrower's obligations under Section 3.3, the Borrower shall pay to each Lender on the last day of each Interest Period of each SOFR Advance, so long as the relevant Applicable 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 SOFR Advance for each day during such Interest Period:



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
(i)    the principal amount of such SOFR Advance 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 SOFR Advance for such Interest Period as provided in this Agreement (less the Applicable Margin applicable to the relevant SOFR Advances) and the denominator of which is one minus any increase after the 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 Applicable Lending Office) if such efforts would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.
Section 3.8.    Replacement Lenders, etc. If the Borrower shall be required to make any payment to any Lender pursuant to Section 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7, 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) terminate such Lender's Commitment (whereupon the Ratable Shares of each other Lender shall automatically be adjusted to an amount equal to each such Lender's ratable share of the remaining Commitments), and such Lender's right to receive any facility fee accruing after such termination, (b) prepay the affected portion of such Lender's Advances in full, together with accrued interest thereon through the date of such prepayment (provided that the Borrower shall not prepay any such Lender pursuant to this clause (b) without replacing such Lender pursuant to the following clause (c) until a 30-day period shall have elapsed during which the Borrower and the Agents shall have attempted in good faith to replace such Lender), and/or (c) replace such Lender with another financial institution reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, 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 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 assignees in an aggregate amount at least equal to the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Advances 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 date of this Agreement (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 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 to or for account of such Lender.



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
Section 3.9.    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 then due and 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 2.12; provided, further, that in the event that any Defaulting Lender exercises any such right of setoff, (x) all amounts so set off will be paid over immediately to the Administrative Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.15(b) and, pending such payment, will be segregated by such Defaulting Lender from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and (y) the Defaulting Lender will provide promptly to the Administrative Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the Obligations owing to such Defaulting Lender as to which it exercised such right of setoff.  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 3.10.    Use of Proceeds.  The Borrower shall apply the proceeds of each Borrowing in accordance with the third recital; without limiting the foregoing, no proceeds of any Advance 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 IV

CONDITIONS TO BORROWING
Section 4.1.    Effectiveness.  The obligations of the Lenders to fund any Borrowing shall be subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent set forth in this Section 4.1.
(a)    Resolutions, etc.  The Administrative Agent shall have received from the Borrower:
(i)    a certificate, dated the Effective Date, of its Secretary or Assistant Secretary as to the incumbency and signatures of those of its officers authorized to act with respect to this Agreement and each other Loan Document and as to the truth and completeness of the attached:
(x)    resolutions of its Board of Directors then in full force and effect authorizing the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and each other Loan Document, and

THE AGENTS
Section 10.1.    Actions.  Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints Bank of America to act on its behalf as the Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof or thereof, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.  The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, and the Borrower shall not have rights as a third-party beneficiary of any of such provisions.  It is understood and agreed that the use of the term "agent" herein or in any other Loan Documents (or any other similar term) with reference to the Administrative Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law.  Instead such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties.
Section 10.2.    Rights as a Lender.  The Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and the term "Lender" or "Lenders" shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires, include the Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder in its individual capacity.  Such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, own securities of, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for, and generally engage in any kind of business with, the Borrower or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not the Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders.
Section 10.3.    Lender Indemnification.  (a)  Each Lender hereby severally indemnifies (which indemnity shall survive any termination of this Agreement) the Administrative Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower) from and against such Lender's Ratable Share of any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel) that 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 of any out-of-pocket and documented 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.



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
(b)    [Intentionally omitted].
(c)    The failure of any Lender to reimburse the Administrative Agent promptly upon demand for its Ratable Share of any amount required to be paid by the Lenders to the Administrative Agent as provided herein shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation hereunder to reimburse the Administrative Agent for its Ratable Share of such amount, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to reimburse the Administrative Agent for such other Lender's Ratable Share of such amount.  Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of any Lender hereunder, the agreement and obligations of each Lender contained in this Section 10.3 shall survive the payment in full of principal, interest and all other amounts payable hereunder and under the Notes.  The Administrative Agent agrees to promptly return to the Lenders their respective Ratable Shares of any amounts paid under this Section 10.3 that are subsequently reimbursed by the Borrower.
Section 10.4.    Exculpation.  (a) The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, and its duties hereunder shall be administrative in nature.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent:
(i)    shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether an Event of Default or Prepayment Event has occurred and is continuing;
(ii)    shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Loan Documents that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Loan Documents); provided that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose the Administrative Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or applicable law, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any debtor relief law or that may effect a forfeiture, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender in violation of any debtor relief law; and
(iii)    shall not, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.

Section 10.7.    Resignation of Administrative Agent.  (a) The Administrative Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders and the Borrower.  Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, with the consent of the Borrower, to appoint a successor, which shall be a commercial banking institution having a combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000 (or the equivalent in other currencies).  If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders with the consent of the Borrower and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the "Resignation Effective Date"), then the retiring Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above, subject to the consent of such proposed



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
successor Administrative Agent to such appointment.  Whether or not a successor has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date.
(b)    Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, if at any time the Required Lenders determine that the Person serving as Administrative Agent is (without taking into account any provision in the definition of "Defaulting Lender" requiring notice from the Administrative Agent or any other party) a Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (d) of the definition thereof, the Required Lenders (determined after giving effect to Section 11.1) may by notice to the Borrower and such Person remove such Person as Administrative Agent and, with the consent of the Borrower, appoint a replacement Administrative Agent hereunder.  Such removal will, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, be effective on the earlier of (i) the date a replacement Administrative Agent is appointed and (ii) the date 30 days after the giving of such notice by the Required Lenders (regardless of whether a replacement Administrative Agent has been appointed).
(c)    With effect from the Resignation Effective Date (1) the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and (2) all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly, until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent as provided for above.  Upon the acceptance of a successor's appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Administrative Agent, and the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents.  The fees payable by the Borrower to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrower and such successor.  After the retiring or removed Administrative Agent's resignation or removal hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions of this Article and Sections 11.3 and 11.4 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring or removed Administrative Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring or removed Administrative Agent was acting as Administrative Agent.
Section 10.8.    Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders.  Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
Section 10.9.    No Other Duties.  Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, none of the Arrangers or Agents listed on the cover page hereof shall have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent or a Lender hereunder.

Section 10.13.    Recovery of Erroneous Payments. Without limitation of any other provision in this Agreement, if at any time the Administrative Agent makes a payment hereunder in error to any Lender, whether or not in respect of an Obligation due and owing by the Borrower at such time, where such payment is a Rescindable Amount, then in any such event, each Lender receiving a Rescindable Amount severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount received by such Lender in immediately available funds in the currency so received, with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such Rescindable Amount is received by 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. Each Lender irrevocably waives any and all defenses, including any "discharge for value" (under which a creditor might otherwise claim a right to retain funds mistakenly paid by a third party in respect of a debt owed by another) or similar defense to its obligation to return any Rescindable Amount.  The Administrative Agent shall inform each Lender promptly upon determining that any payment made to such Lender comprised, in whole or in part, a Rescindable Amounts.

Section 11.4.    Indemnification.  In consideration of the execution and delivery of this Agreement by each Lender and the extension of the Advances, the Borrower hereby indemnifies and holds harmless the Administrative Agent, each Lender and each of their respective Affiliates and their respective officers, advisors, directors, employees, partners and controlling persons (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable and documented 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 or thereby or any actual or proposed use of the proceeds of the Advances (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 from such Indemnified Party's gross negligence or willful misconduct or the material breach by such Indemnified Party of its obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.  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 11.4, (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 and documented 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



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
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 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.  If any Person shall not comply with the foregoing with respect to any claim, the sole result shall be that the Borrower shall not have any liability to such Person in respect of such claim under this Section 11.4.  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 from such Indemnified Party's gross negligence or willful misconduct or the material breach by such Indemnified Party of its obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.  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 11.5.    Survival.  The obligations of the Borrower under Sections 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 11.3 and 11.4, and the obligations of the Lenders under Section 10.3, shall in each case survive any termination of this Agreement, the payment in full of all Obligations and the termination of all Commitments.  The representations and warranties made by the Borrower in this Agreement and in each other Loan Document shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and each such other Loan Document.
Section 11.6.    Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document 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 this Agreement or such Loan Document or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

(f)    No Assignment to Certain Persons.  No such assignment shall be made to (A) the Borrower or any of the Borrower's Affiliates or Subsidiaries or (B) to any Defaulting Lender or any of their respective Subsidiaries, or any Person who, upon becoming a Lender hereunder, would constitute any of the foregoing Persons described in this clause (f).
(g)    No Assignment to Natural Persons.  No such assignment shall be made to a natural Person or any holding company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural Person.
(h)    Certain Pledges.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement (including under its Note, if any) to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or, with the Borrower's consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), to any central governmental authority; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
(i)    Certain Additional Payments.  In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder, no such assignment shall be effective unless and until, in addition to the other conditions thereto set forth herein, the parties to the assignment shall make such additional payments to the Administrative Agent in an aggregate amount sufficient, upon distribution thereof as appropriate (which may be outright payment, purchases by the assignee of participations, or other compensating actions, including funding, with the consent of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, the applicable Ratable Share of Advances previously requested but not funded by the Defaulting Lender, to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (x) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent and each other Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon), and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full Ratable Share of all Advances.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder shall become effective under applicable law without compliance with the provisions of this paragraph, then the assignee of such interest shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.
Subject to acceptance and recording thereof by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 11.11.3, from and after the effective date specified in each Lender Assignment Agreement, the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Lender Assignment Agreement, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Lender Assignment Agreement, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of a Lender Assignment Agreement covering all of the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto) but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 10.2, 11.3 and 11.4 with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment; provided, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no assignment by a Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender's having been a Defaulting Lender.  Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this paragraph shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with Section 11.11.2.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the Borrower be required to pay to any assignee



WEIL:\98779116\4\64945.0060

    
any amount under Sections 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay at the time of the relevant assignment had no such assignment been made.
Section 11.11.2    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 Advances, its Commitment, or other interests of such Lender hereunder without the consent of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent; provided that:
(a)    no participation contemplated in this Section 11.11.2 shall relieve such Lender from its Commitment(s) or its other obligations hereunder;
(b)    such Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance of its Commitment(s) and such other 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 clause (c) or (d) of Section 11.1;
(e)    the Borrower shall not be required to pay any amount under Sections 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay had no participating interest been sold; and
(f)    each Lender that sells a participation under this Section 11.11.2 shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest on) each of the Participant's interest in the Lender's Advances, Commitments or other interests hereunder (the "Participant Register").  The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender may treat each person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes hereunder.
The Borrower acknowledges and agrees that each Participant, for purposes of Sections 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and clause (g) of 6.1.1, shall be considered a Lender.
Section 11.11.3    Register. The Administrative Agent, acting as agent for the Borrower, shall maintain at its address referred to in Section 11.2 a copy of each Added Lender Agreement and each Lender Assignment Agreement delivered to and accepted by it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitment(s) of, and principal amount of the Advances owing to, each Lender from time to time (the "Register").  The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement.  The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

(b)    EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT IN ANY COURT REFERRED TO IN PARAGRAPH (a) OF THIS SECTION. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE DEFENSE OF AN INCONVENIENT FORUM TO THE MAINTENANCE OF SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN ANY SUCH COURT.

Section 11.15.    Judgment.  (a)  If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder in Dollars into another 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 Dollars with such other currency at Bank of America's principal office in New York at 11:00 A.M. (New York time) on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given.
(b)    [Intentionally omitted].
(c)    The obligation of the Borrower in respect of any sum due from it in any currency (the "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 such other 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 such other 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 11.16.    [Intentionally omitted].
