(a)    The Finnvera Balancing Commitment Amount may be increased from zero to an amount up to but not exceeding the aggregate of the Maximum Balancing Amount and the Finnvera Balancing Premium subject to and in accordance with this Section 2.4 only.

On each German Content Review Date the Maximum Balancing Amount shall reduce by the Eligible German Content Amount which is confirmed at that time provided that the Facility Agent has received from the Builder (in satisfactory form) the relevant Hermes Documentary Requirements for such Eligible German Content Amount. Following each German Content Review Date the Facility Agent shall calculate and confirm to the Borrower in writing the Maximum Balancing Amount then available in accordance with this Agreement which amount cannot be increased following each such confirmation.
(b)    At any time up to the Final German Content Notice Date, the Borrower may, by written notice to the Facility Agent (the "Final German Content Notice"), elect without premium or penalty to re-allocate a portion of the Hermes Commitment Amount to the Finnvera Balancing Commitment Amount in the event the German Construction Contract Component at such time is expected to be less than EUR200,000,000 and/or there are any elements of the German Construction Contract Component for which the Hermes Documentary Requirements have not been satisfied (and are unlikely to be satisfied by the Final German Content Notice Date (or such later date in advance of the Contractual Delivery Date as the Borrower may agree with the Builder and the Facility Agent)).

Requirements.

(c)    It is agreed that any partial deficiency in the fulfilment of the Hermes Documentary Requirements relating to a part of the German Construction Contract Component shall not affect the validity of the Hermes Insurance Policy in relation to the remaining German Construction Contract Component and shall not affect the Borrower's right to draw such portion of the Hermes Commitment Amount upon the terms of this Agreement in relation to all those elements of the German Construction Contract Component for which the Hermes Documentary Requirements have been met.
(d)    In the circumstances set forth in this Section 2.4 only, the Finnvera Balancing Commitment Amount (including any amount specified in Section 2.4(b)) shall be available to the Borrower under the terms of this Agreement.
(e)    Section 2.1.6 shall apply to any adjustment of the Hermes Commitment Amount and/or the Finnvera Balancing Commitment Amount under this Section 2.4.

Any such partial prepayment shall be applied on a pro rata basis across each of the FEC Loan, the Hermes Loan and, if applicable, the Finnvera Balancing Loan provided that the Borrower may direct how such pro rata prepayment shall be applied between the FEC Tranche A Loan and the FEC Tranche B Loan and provided that such pro rata application across the Loan shall not result in the Hermes Loan being less than 5% of the amount of the Loan.
(c)    No amount repaid or prepaid by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 3.1 may be re-borrowed under the terms of this Agreement.
Prepayment
SECTION 3.1.1. Voluntary Prepayment
The Borrower:
(a)    may, from time to time on any Business Day, make a voluntary prepayment, in whole or in part, of the outstanding principal amount of the Loan; provided that:
(i)    all such voluntary prepayments shall require (x) for prepayments on or after the Disbursement Date made prior to the Actual Delivery Date in respect of the advance made on the Disbursement Date, at least two (2) Business Days' prior written notice to the Facility Agent, and (y) for all other prepayments, at least thirty (30) calendar days' prior written notice (or such shorter period as the Majority Lenders may agree), if all or any portion of the prepayment is to be applied in prepayment of the Fixed Rate Loan, or otherwise at least five (5) Business Days' (or, if such prepayment is to be made on the last day of an Interest Period for the Loan, four (4) Business Days') prior written notice, in each case to the Facility Agent; and
(ii)    all such voluntary partial prepayments shall be in an aggregate minimum amount of $10,000,000 and a multiple of $1,000,000 (or in the remaining amount of the Loan) and shall be applied in forward order of maturity, inverse order of maturity or ratably at the Borrower's option against the remaining instalments; provided, however, that any such partial prepayment shall be applied on a pro rata basis across each of the FEC Loan, the Hermes Loan and, if applicable, the Finnvera Balancing Loan and provided further that the Borrower may direct how such pro rata prepayment shall be applied between the FEC Tranche A Loan and the FEC Tranche B Loan; and
(iii)    any voluntary prepayment shall not result in the Hermes Loan being less than 5% of the amount of the Loan at any time.
SECTION 3.1.2. Illegality
(a)    If, by reason of a Change in Law, it becomes unlawful under any applicable law (i) for a Lender to be subject to a commitment to make available to the Borrower such Lender's portion of the FEC Loan, Hermes Loan and/or Finnvera Balancing Loan, (ii) for a Lender to make or hold its portion of the
        Page 49

FEC Loan, Hermes Loan and/or Finnvera Balancing Loan in its Lending Office, (iii) for a Lender to receive a payment under this Agreement or any other Loan Document or (iv) for a Lender to comply with any other material provision of, or to perform its obligations as contemplated by, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the Lender affected by such Change in Law may give written notice (the "Illegality Notice") to the Borrower and the Facility Agent of such Change in Law, including reasonable details of the relevant Change of Law and specifying which, if not all, of its Commitment (the "Affected Commitment") and portion of the Loan (the "Affected Loan") is affected by such Change in Law. Any Illegality Notice must be given by a Lender no later than 120 days after such Lender first obtains actual knowledge or written notice of the relevant Change in Law.
(b)    If an affected Lender delivers an Illegality Notice prior to the Disbursement Date, then, subject to Section 11.20, (1) while the arrangements contemplated by the following clause (2) have not yet been completed and the Affected Commitment of such Lender has not been formally cancelled, such Lender shall not be obliged to fund its Affected Commitment and (2) the Borrower shall be entitled at any time within 50 days after receipt of such Illegality Notice to replace such Lender with another Lender hereunder or one or more other financial institutions (I) reasonably acceptable to the Facility Agent and (II) acceptable to each of Finnvera (in respect of the FEC Loan and, if applicable the Finnvera Balancing Loan) and/or Hermes (in respect of the Hermes Loan) (as applicable); provided that any such assignment or transfer shall be either (x) in the case of a single assignment or transfer, an assignment or transfer of all of the rights and obligations of the assigning or transferring Lender under this Agreement with respect to the Affected Commitment or (y) in the case of more than one assignment or transfer, an assignment or transfer of a portion of such rights and obligations made concurrently with another such assignment or transfer or other such assignments or transfers that collectively cover all of the rights and obligations of the assigning or transferring Lender under this Agreement with respect to the Affected Commitment. If, at the end of such 50-day period, the Borrower has not so replaced such affected Lender as aforesaid and no alternative arrangements have been implemented pursuant to Section 11.20, the Affected Commitment held by such Lender shall be cancelled.
(c)    Subject to Proviso (a) in Section 9.2, if an affected Lender delivers an Illegality Notice on or following the Disbursement Date, then the Borrower shall have the right, but not the obligation, exercisable at any time within 50 days after receipt of such Illegality Notice (the "Option Period"), either (1) to prepay the portion of the Affected Loan held by such Lender in full on or before the expiry of the Option Period, together with all unpaid interest and fees thereon accrued to but excluding the date of such prepayment, or (2) to replace such Lender on or before the expiry of the Option Period with another Lender hereunder or one or more other financial institutions (I) reasonably acceptable to the Facility Agent and (II) acceptable to Finnvera (in respect of the FEC Loan and, if applicable, the Finnvera Balancing Loan) and/or Hermes (in respect of the Hermes Loan) (as applicable); provided that (x) in the case of a single assignment or transfer, any such assignment or transfer shall be either an assignment or transfer of all of the rights and obligations of the assigning or transferring Lender under this Agreement with respect to the Affected Loan or, in the case of more than
        Page 50

one assignment or transfer, an assignment or transfer of a portion of such rights and obligations made concurrently with another such assignment or transfer or other such assignments or transfers that collectively cover all of the rights and obligations of the assigning or transferring Lender under this Agreement with respect to the Affected Loan and (y) no Lender shall be obliged to make any such assignment or transfer as a result of an election by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 3.2.2(c) unless and until such Lender shall have received one or more payments from one or more Assignee Lenders, Transferee Lenders and/or the Borrower in an aggregate amount at least equal to the portion of the Affected Loan held by such Lender, together with all unpaid interest and fees thereon accrued to but excluding the date of such assignment or transfer (and all other amounts then owing to such Lender under this Agreement with respect to the Affected Loan).
SECTION 3.1.3. Prepayment requirements
Each prepayment of the Loan made pursuant to this Section 3.2 shall be without premium or penalty, except as may be required by Section 4.4. No amounts prepaid by the Borrower may be re-borrowed under the terms of this Agreement.

SECTION 3.1.6. FEC Conversion
(a)    The parties to this Agreement acknowledge and agree that, at any time when the FEC Tranche A Loan is payable at the Fixed Rate, FEC will have the right to effect an FEC Conversion with respect to the FEC Tranche A Loan (if it has been advanced) or the FEC Commitment relating to the FEC Tranche A Loan (if the FEC Tranche A Loan has not been advanced) if:
(i)    the funds made available under the Loan have been used for a purpose other than pursuant to Section 2.5(d);
(ii)    the Borrower has provided incorrect information in relation to an essential issue or failed to disclose matters that have an essential impact on the terms and conditions set out in schedule 3 of the FEC Supplemental Assignment Agreement or the approval of the FEC Financing;
(iii)    a Transferring Lender or the Facility Agent has provided incorrect information in an essential matter in connection with the Application or failed to disclose matters that have an essential impact on the approval of the FEC Financing; or
(iv)    a Transferring Lender or the Facility Agent is, in connection with the export transaction pursuant to the Construction Contract or the Loan, found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been engaged prior to the Disbursement Date in any act that constitutes corrupt activity within the meaning described in clause 12 of the FEC Supplemental Assignment Agreement, or if otherwise the same is proven without controversy.
(b)    In the event that FEC is entitled under the terms of clause 13.1.1 of the FEC Supplemental Assignment Agreement to effect an FEC Conversion, it shall notify the Borrower through the Facility Agent and advise of the date on which the Fixed Rate will terminate and the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate will apply (the "FEC Conversion Notice") and the Borrower and FEC shall agree the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate Margin which is to apply for purposes of determining the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate in accordance with the procedure set out in a separate side letter between the Borrower and FEC. Any margin agreed shall constitute the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate Margin to apply to the FEC Tranche A Loan effective on and from the date specified in the Conversion Notice.
        Page 52

(c)    If the Borrower and FEC are unable to agree upon the alternative margin to apply for purposes of determining the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate as provided in Section 3.3.3(b), FEC shall set the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate Margin and FEC shall furnish a certificate to the Borrower and the Facility Agent (the "FEC Conversion Floating Rate Certificate") setting forth such rate (including margin) as soon as reasonably practicable, which FEC Tranche A Floating Rate Margin shall be effective on and from the date specified in the Conversion Notice.
(d)     If an FEC Conversion occurs due to occurrence of the events or circumstances specified in Section 3.3.3(a)(ii), the Borrower shall indemnify FEC in its capacity as Fixed Rate Provider for (x) any Break Costs incurred because of the change of the interest rate and regardless of whether any FEC Commitment is cancelled or any portion of the FEC Tranche A Loan is prepaid in connection with such change of interest and (y) the Interest Subsidy Amount Repayable.
(e)    If an FEC Conversion occurs due to the occurrence of the events or circumstances specified in Section 3.3.3(a)(i), (iii) or (iv), then, unless such events or circumstances are directly attributable to a breach by the Borrower of its obligations under the Loan Documents, the Facility Agent or Transferring Lender or Transferring Lenders who provided such incorrect information or engaged in such corrupt activity shall (A) indemnify FEC in its capacity as Fixed Rate Provider for (x) any Break Costs incurred because of the change of the interest rate and regardless of whether any FEC Commitment is cancelled or any portion of the FEC Tranche A Loan is prepaid in connection with such change of interest and, except when Section 3.3.3(a)(iv) is applicable, (y) the Interest Subsidy Amount Repayable and (B) indemnify the Borrower no later than three (3) Business Days following the end of each Interest Period for any increase in the amount of interest which the Borrower has paid to the Facility Agent for such Interest Period in respect of the FEC Tranche A Loan as a result of the conversion from the Fixed Rate to the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate.
(f)    If an FEC Conversion occurs due to the occurrence of the events or circumstances specified in Section 3.3.3(a)(i), (iii) or (iv) which are directly attributable to a breach by the Borrower of its obligations under the Loan Documents, the Borrower shall indemnify FEC in its capacity as Fixed Rate Provider for (x) any Break Costs incurred because of the change of the interest rate and regardless of whether any FEC Commitment is cancelled or any portion of the FEC Tranche A Loan is prepaid in connection with such change of interest and (y) the Interest Subsidy Amount Repayable.
(g)    In the case of the indemnity under paragraph (d) or (f), the Facility Agent shall provide the Borrower with a certificate prepared by FEC to show, in sufficient detail, the method and basis of the computation of such Break Costs and Interest Subsidy Amount Repayable. In any case referred to in this Section 3.3.3(g), the Facility Agent shall collect from the Borrower the payments payable by the Borrower hereunder and pay such collected payments to FEC without delay upon receipt of such payments from the Borrower.

ARTICLE IV
CERTAIN FLOATING RATE AND OTHER PROVISIONS
Floating Rate Lending Unlawful
If after the Effective Date the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law makes it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority having jurisdiction over such Lender asserts that it is unlawful, for such Lender to make, continue or maintain its portion of (i) the FEC Tranche A Loan in the event it is accruing interest at the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate (ii) the FEC Tranche B Loan (iii) the Hermes Loan and/or (iv) if applicable, the Finnvera Balancing Loan based on the Floating Rate, the obligation of such Lender to make, continue or maintain its portion of such (i) FEC Tranche A Loan (ii) FEC Tranche B Loan (iii) Hermes Loan and/or (iv) the Finnvera Balancing Loan shall, upon notice thereof to the Borrower, the Facility Agent
        Page 55

and each other Lender, forthwith be suspended until the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, provided that such Lender's obligation to make, continue and maintain its portion of such FEC Tranche A Loan, FEC Tranche B Loan, Hermes Loan and/or Finnvera Balancing Loan hereunder shall be automatically converted into an obligation to make, continue and maintain its portion of such (i) FEC Tranche A Loan (ii) FEC Tranche B Loan (iii) Hermes Loan and/or (iv) Finnvera Balancing Loan bearing interest at a rate to be negotiated between such Lender and the Borrower that is the equivalent of the sum of the Reference Rate (or, if applicable at such time, the Compounded Reference Rate) plus the Credit Adjustment Spread (but without double counting (and having regard to the definition of Compounded Reference Rate)) plus the applicable Floating Rate Margin (in relation to the FEC Tranche B Loan, the Hermes Loan and, if applicable, the Finnvera Balancing Loan or the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate Margin (in relation to the FEC Tranche A Loan where following an FEC Conversion this is subject to the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate)).
[intentionally left blank]
Increased Loan Costs, etc.
If after the Effective Date 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) of any governmental or other authority including, without limitation, any agency of the European Union or similar monetary or multinational authority insofar as it may be changed or imposed after the date hereof, shall:
(a)    subject any Lender to any taxes, levies, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings of any nature with respect to its portion of the Loan or any part thereof imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any jurisdiction or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof (other than (i) taxes as to which such Lender is indemnified under Section 4.6 and (ii) taxes excluded from the indemnity set forth in Section 4.6); or
(b)    change the basis of taxation to any Lender (other than a change in taxation on the overall net income of any Lender) of payments of principal or interest or any other payment due or to become due pursuant to this Agreement; or
(c)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve or capital adequacy requirements (other than the increased capital costs described in Section 4.5) or other banking or monetary controls or requirements which affect the manner in which a Lender shall allocate its capital resources to its obligations hereunder or require the making of any special deposits against or in respect of any assets or liabilities of, deposits with or for the account of, or loans by, any Lender (provided that such Lender shall, unless prohibited by law, allocate its capital resources to its obligations hereunder in a manner which is consistent with its present treatment of the allocation of its capital resources); or
(d)    impose on any Lender any other condition affecting its portion of the Loan or any part thereof,
        Page 56

and the result of any of the foregoing is either (i) to increase the cost to such Lender of making its portion of the Loan or maintaining its portion of the Loan or any part thereof, (ii) to reduce the amount of any payment received by such Lender or its effective return hereunder or on its capital or (iii) to cause such Lender to make any payment or to forego any return based on any amount received or receivable by such Lender hereunder, then and in any such case if such increase or reduction in the opinion of such Lender materially affects the interests of such Lender, (A) such Lender shall (through the Facility Agent) notify the Borrower of the occurrence of such event and use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid the effects of such law, regulation or regulatory requirement or any change therein or in the interpretation thereof and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender and (B) the Borrower shall forthwith upon such demand pay to the Facility 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 unless such additional costs are attributable to a FATCA Deduction required to be made by a party to this Agreement or are otherwise excluded from the indemnity set forth in Section 4.6 or Section 11.4. 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 such 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 organisation 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.

(b)    if at the time interest is calculated at the Fixed Rate on such Lender's portion of the Loan, any repayment or prepayment or acceleration of the principal amount of such Lender's portion of the Loan, other than any repayment made on the date scheduled for such repayment (in each case, including any payments whatsoever as a result of an FEC Conversion or an FEC Reassignment where the Borrower is liable to pay Break Costs under Section 3.3.3(d) or Section 3.3.3(f) in the case of an FEC Conversion and Section 9.1.10(A)(b) in the case of an FEC Reassignment) excluding any repayment pursuant to Section 9.1.11, by reason of a Non-Borrower Related Change in Law);
(c)    a voluntary reduction of the FEC Tranche A Commitment below EUR1,018,794,290;
(d)    the Loan not being advanced in accordance with the Loan Request therefor due to the fault of the Borrower or as a result of any of the conditions precedent set forth in Article V not being satisfied;
(e)    any prepayment of the Loan by the Borrower pursuant to Section 4.12 or Section 9.2; or
(f)    the FEC Tranche A Loan not being advanced on or before the Commitment Termination Date,
(each, a "Funding Losses Event"), then, upon the written notice of such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Facility Agent), the Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days of its receipt of such notice:
a.    if at that time interest is calculated at the Floating Rate or, if applicable, the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate (other than where the Compounded Reference Rate is applicable, where Section 4.4.1 (A)(b.) below applies) on such Lender's portion of the Loan, pay directly to the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender an amount (the "Floating Rate Indemnity Amount") equal to the amount, if any, by which:
(i)    interest calculated at the Floating Rate or, if applicable, the FEC Tranche A Floating Rate which such Lender would have received on its share of the amount of the Loan subject to such Funding Losses Event for the period from the date of receipt of any part of its share in the Loan to the last day of the applicable Interest Period,
exceeds:
(ii)    the amount which such Lender would be able to obtain by placing an amount equal to the amount received by it on deposit with a leading bank in the appropriate interbank
        Page 58

market for a period starting on the Business Day following receipt and ending on the last day of the applicable Interest Period; or
b.    if at that time interest is calculated at the Compounded Reference Rate on such Lender's portion of the Loan, pay directly to the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender any amount specified as "Break Costs" in the Compounded Reference Rate Terms; or
c.    if at that time the Fixed Rate is applied to the FEC Tranche A Commitment or the FEC Tranche A Loan (as applicable), pay to the Facility Agent acting on the instructions of FEC, in its capacity as the Fixed Rate Provider) for the account of FEC, in its capacity as the Fixed Rate Provider, the amount (if any) in Dollars determined by FEC, as Fixed Rate Provider, by which:
(i)    the sum of the present value, discounted at the Reinvestment Rate, of each principal payment and interest payment which the FEC Lender would have received on its share of any amount of the FEC Tranche A Commitment that is cancelled or any outstanding amount of the FEC Tranche A Loan that is prepaid for the period from the date of cancellation or from the date of receipt of the prepayment of the principal amount of the FEC Tranche A Loan by the FEC Lender, until the date of Final Maturity (assuming for these purposes that interest would have accrued during the relevant period on a loan ("Deemed Loan") made on the date of cancellation or receipt of the principal amount prepaid in an amount equal to the FEC Tranche A Commitment so cancelled or the principal amount of the FEC Tranche A Loan so prepaid and where such Deemed Loan is repaid in proportional repayment instalments on each of the subsequent Repayment Dates),
exceeds:
(ii)    the cancelled amount of the FEC Tranche A Commitment or the principal amount of the FEC Tranche A Loan prepaid plus accrued interest paid thereon since the previous interest payment date.
(B)    Where a Defaulting Finance Party is liable to pay Break Costs to the Facility Agent for the account of FEC acting in its capacity as Fixed Rate Provider pursuant to Section 3.3.3(e) or Section 9.1.10(A)(c) such Break Costs shall be determined in accordance with Section 4.4.1(A)b.
Increased Capital Costs
If after the Effective Date any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase-in of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any court, central bank, regulator or other governmental authority (a) results in an increase of 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 Commitment or its portion of the Loan made by such Lender is
        Page 59

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 or (b) a Finance Party suffers a reduction of any amount payable under a Loan Document then, in each such case upon notice from time to time by such Lender or Finance Party to the Borrower, the Borrower shall immediately pay directly to such Lender or Finance Party additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender or such controlling Person or Finance Party for such reduction in rate of return. Any such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the capital adequacy requirements which have been imposed, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the amount of such lowered return, (iii) describe the manner in which such amount has been calculated, (iv) certify that the method used to calculate such amount is such Lender's or Finance Party'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 or Finance Party does business. In determining such amount, such Lender or Finance Party may use any method of averaging and attribution that it shall, subject to the foregoing sentence, deem applicable. Each Lender or Finance Party agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid such reduction in such rate of return and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender or Finance Party, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender or Finance Party. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or Finance Party to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's or Finance Party's right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender or Finance Party pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than three months prior to the date that such Lender or Finance Party notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such reductions and of such Lender's or Finance Party'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 or Finance Party notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such reductions and of such Lender's or Finance Party's intention to claim compensation therefor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no amounts shall be payable pursuant to Section 4.5 in respect of (i) taxes to which a Finance Party is indemnified under Section 4.6 or (ii) taxes excluded from the indemnity set forth in Section 4.6.
Taxes
All payments by any Obligor of principal of, and interest on, the Loan and all other amounts payable under any Loan Document, including for the avoidance of doubt under any Fee Letter, shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any present or future income, excise, stamp or franchise taxes and other taxes, fees, duties, withholdings or other charges of any nature whatsoever imposed by any taxing authority, but excluding with respect to each Lender (i) franchise taxes and taxes imposed on or measured by such Lender's net income or receipts of such Lender 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 organised or any political subdivision thereof or the jurisdiction of such Lender's Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof or any other jurisdiction unless such net income taxes are imposed solely as a result of the applicable Obligor's activities in such other jurisdiction, and (ii) any taxes imposed under FATCA (such non-excluded items being called "Covered Taxes"). In the event that any withholding or deduction from any payment to be made by an Obligor under any Loan
        Page 60

Document is required in respect of any Covered 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 Facility Agent an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to the Facility Agent evidencing such payment to such authority; and
(c)    pay to the Facility 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 Covered Taxes are directly asserted against the Facility Agent or any Lender with respect to any payment received or paid by the Facility Agent or such Lender hereunder, the Facility Agent or such Lender may pay such Covered 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 Covered Taxes (including any Covered Taxes on such additional amount) shall equal the amount such person would have received had no such Covered 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 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 Covered Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the Facility Agent for the account of the respective Lenders the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders for any incremental withholding Covered 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 Covered Taxes). For purposes of this Section 4.6, a distribution hereunder by the Facility 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 Covered Tax under this Section 4.6 or by reason of any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 4.3, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to obtain such refund, credit, deduction or other reduction and, promptly after receipt thereof, 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 Covered 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.
        Page 61

Each Lender agrees with the Borrower and the Facility Agent that it will (i) (a) provide to the Facility Agent and the Borrower an appropriately executed copy of Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") Form W-9 (or any successor form) certifying the status of such Lender as a US person, IRS Form W-8ECI (or any successor form) certifying that any payments made to or for the benefit of such Lender are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States or IRS Form W-8BEN-E (or any successor form) 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 or transferee Lender, Lender that changes its Lending Office, on or prior to the date of the relevant assignment, transfer or change), in each case attached to an IRS Form W-8IMY (or any successor form), if appropriate, (b) notify the Facility 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, the status of such Lender or that payments to such Lender hereunder are exempt from withholding under FATCA, and (ii) in all cases, provide such forms, certificates or other documents, as and when reasonably requested by the Borrower, necessary to claim any applicable exemption from, or reduction of, Covered Taxes, a FATCA Deduction or any payments made to or for benefit of such Lender, provided that the Lender is legally able to deliver such forms, certificates or other documents. For any period with respect to which a Lender (or assignee or transferee Lender) 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 Lender or Transferee Lender, would be the date on which the original assignor or transferor was required to provide such form) or if such form otherwise is not required hereunder) such Lender (or assignee or transferee Lender) shall not be entitled to the benefits of this Section 4.6 or Section 11.4 with respect to Covered Taxes imposed by reason of such failure.
[Intentionally left blank]
Payments, Computations, etc.
(a)    Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, all payments by an Obligor in respect of amounts of principal, interest and fees or any other applicable amounts owing to the Lenders under any Loan Document shall be made by such Obligor to the Facility Agent for the account of the Lenders entitled to receive such payments and ratably in accordance with the respective amounts then due and payable to the Lenders. All such payments required to be made to the Facility Agent shall be made by the Borrower, without set-off, deduction or counterclaim, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York time, on the date due, in same day or immediately available funds through the New York Clearing House Interbank Payments System (or such other funds as may be customary for the settlement of international banking transactions in Dollars), to such account as the Facility Agent shall specify from time to time by notice to the Borrower. Funds received after that time shall be deemed to have been received by the Lenders on the next succeeding Business Day.
(b)    The Facility Agent shall promptly (but in any event on the same Business Day that the same are received or, as contemplated in clause (a) of this Section, deemed received) remit in same day funds to each Lender its share,
        Page 62

if any, of such payments received by the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender without any set-off, deduction or counterclaim. All interest and fees shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring during the period for which such interest or fee is payable over a year comprised of 360 days. Whenever any payment to be made shall otherwise be due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall (except as otherwise required by paragraph (a) of the definition of the term "Interest Period") be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest and fees, if any, in connection with such payment.
Replacement Lenders, etc.
If the Borrower shall be required to make any payment to any Lender pursuant to Clause 6 of Exhibit T or Section 4.3, 4.5 or 4.6, 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 Percentage of each other Lender in respect of each Commitment shall automatically be adjusted to an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share of the remaining amount of such Commitment), (b) prepay the affected portion of such Lender's share of the Loan in full, together with accrued interest thereon through the date of such prepayment (provided that the Borrower shall not terminate any Lender's Commitment pursuant to clause (a) or prepay any such Lender pursuant to this clause (b) unless the Borrower and the Facility Agent shall have attempted in good faith over a period of 30 days to replace such Lender pursuant to the following clause (c)), and/or (c) except in the case of FEC in relation to the FEC Loan, replace such Lender with one or more financial institutions (I) reasonably acceptable to the Facility Agent in its capacity as Hermes Agent, (II) acceptable to Hermes in the case of a Hermes Lender and (III) acceptable to Finnvera in the case of an FEC Lender or a Finnvera Balancing Lender; provided that (x) in the case of a single assignment or transfer, any such assignment or transfer shall be either an assignment or transfer of all of the rights and obligations of the assigning or transferring Lender under this Agreement or, in the case of more than one assignment or transfer, an assignment or transfer of a portion of such rights and obligations made concurrently with another such assignment or transfer or other such assignments or transfers that collectively cover all of the rights and obligations of the assigning or transferring Lender under this Agreement and (y) no Lender shall be obliged to make any such assignment or transfer pursuant to this Section 4.9 unless and until such Lender shall have received one or more payments from one or more Assignee Lenders, Transferee Lenders and/or the Borrower in an aggregate amount at least equal to the portion of the Loan held by such Lender, together with all unpaid interest and fees thereon accrued to but excluding the date of such assignment or transfer (and all other amounts then owing 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 Clause 6 of Exhibit T or Section 4.3, 4.5 and 4.6 to or for account of such Lender.
Sharing of Payments
SECTION 4.1.2. Payments to Lenders
        Page 63

If a Lender (a "Recovering Lender") receives or recovers any amount from an Obligor other than in accordance with Section 4.8 (Payments, Computations, etc.) (a "Recovered Amount") and applies that amount to a payment due under the Loan Documents then:
(a)    the Recovering Lender shall, within three (3) Business Days, notify details of the receipt or recovery to the Facility Agent;
(b)    the Facility Agent shall determine whether the receipt or recovery is in excess of the amount the Recovering Lender would have been paid had the receipt or recovery been received or made by the Facility Agent and distributed in accordance with the said Section 4.8, without taking account of any taxes which would be imposed on the Facility Agent in relation to the receipt, recovery or distribution; and
(c)    the Recovering Lender shall, within three (3) Business Days of demand by the Facility Agent, pay to the Facility Agent an amount (the "Sharing Payment") equal to such receipt or recovery less any amount which the Facility Agent determines may be retained by the Recovering Lender as its share of any payment to be made, in accordance with any applicable provisions of this Agreement.
SECTION 4.1.3. Redistribution of payments
The Facility Agent shall treat the Sharing Payment as if it had been paid by the Borrower and distribute it between the Lenders (other than the Recovering Lender) (the "Sharing Lenders") in accordance with Section 4.8 of this Agreement towards the obligations of the Borrower to the Sharing Lenders.
SECTION 4.1.4. Recovering Lender's rights
On a distribution by the Facility Agent under Section 4.10.2 of a payment received by a Recovering Lender from the relevant Obligor, solely as between that Obligor and the Recovering Lender, an amount of the Recovered Amount equal to the Sharing Payment will be treated as not having been paid by the relevant Obligor.
SECTION 4.1.5. Reversal of redistribution
If any part of the Sharing Payment received or recovered by a Recovering Lender becomes repayable to the Obligor and is repaid by that Recovering Lender to the Obligor, then:
(a)    each Sharing Lender shall, upon request of the Facility Agent, pay to the Facility Agent for the account of that Recovering Lender an amount equal to the appropriate part of its share of the Sharing Payment (together with an amount as is necessary to reimburse that Recovering Lender for its proportion of any interest on the Sharing Payment which that Recovering Lender is required to pay) (the "Redistributed Amount"); and
(b)    solely as between the relevant Obligor and each relevant Sharing Lender, an amount equal to the relevant Redistributed Amount will be treated as not having been paid by the relevant Obligor.
SECTION 4.1.6. Exceptions
        Page 64

(a)    This Section 4.10 shall not apply to the extent that the Recovering Lender would not, after making any payment pursuant to this Section 4.10, have a valid and enforceable claim against the relevant Obligor.
(b)    A Recovering Lender is not obliged to share with any other Lender any amount which the Recovering Lender has received or recovered as a result of taking legal or arbitration proceedings, if:
i.    it notified the other Lender of the legal or arbitration proceedings; and
ii.    the other Lender had an opportunity to participate in those legal or arbitration proceedings but did not do so as soon as reasonably practicable having received notice and did not take separate legal or arbitration proceedings.
Set-off
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default or a 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 any Obligor then or thereafter maintained with such Lender; provided that any such appropriation and application shall be subject to the provisions of Section 4.10. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the applicable Obligor and the Facility Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Lender; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of set-off under applicable law or otherwise) which such Lender may have.
Use of Proceeds
The Borrower shall apply the proceeds of the Loan in accordance with Section 2.5(c) and (d) and, in relation to the Disbursement Date, prior to such application, such proceeds shall be held in an account or accounts of the Facility Agent in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.5(b) and (c) or in an account or accounts that the Borrower shall have specified in its Loan Request in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.5(b); without limiting the foregoing, no proceeds of the Loan will directly or indirectly be used to lend, contribute or otherwise make available such proceeds to any Subsidiary, joint venture partner or any other Person, (i) to fund any activities or business of or with any Person, or in any country or territory, that, at the time of such finding is a Sanctioned Person or Sanctioned Country, or (ii) in any other manner that would result in a violation of Sanctions by any Person (including any Person participating in the Loan, whether as advisor, lender, facility or other agent or otherwise) or (iii) 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. If the proceeds of the Loan have not been paid either (A) to the Builder or its order in accordance with Section 2.5(d)(i) and to, Finnvera, Hermes and the Borrower in accordance with Section 2.5(d)(ii) or 2.5(d)(iii) or (B) to the Facility Agent (directly or indirectly) in prepayment of the Loan under Section 3.2.1(a) or by 9:59 p.m. (London time) on the second Business Day after the Disbursement Date, such proceeds shall continue to be pledged by the Borrower upon receipt in accordance with Section 2.5(c) as collateral pursuant to the Pledge Agreement pending the Actual Delivery Date. If, within 30 days of the Disbursement Date, the Borrower notifies the Facility Agent that the Actual Delivery
        Page 65

Date is expected to be materially delayed, the Facility Agent, the Borrower and the Lenders shall discuss in good faith (but without obligation) for a period of 30 days to agree whether the Loan can be repaid and reborrowed and the terms that would apply to any such re-borrowing. In the event that no agreement is reached and the delivery of the Vessel does not occur on or before 4 June 2024, the proceeds in the Pledged Accounts shall be applied as a prepayment against the Loan in accordance with Section 9.2.
FATCA Deduction
(a) Each party to the Agreement may make any FATCA Deduction it is required to make by FATCA, and any payment required in connection with that FATCA Deduction, and no party to the Agreement shall be required to increase any payment in respect of which it makes such a FATCA Deduction or otherwise compensate the recipient of the payment for that FATCA Deduction.
(b)    Each party to the Agreement shall promptly, upon becoming aware that it must make a FATCA Deduction (or that there is any change in the rate or the basis of such FATCA Deduction), notify the other party to the Agreement to whom it is making the payment and, in addition, shall notify the Borrower and the Facility Agent, and the Facility Agent shall notify the other parties to the Agreement.
FATCA Information
(a)    Subject to paragraph (c) below, each party (other than the Borrower) shall, within ten (10) Business Days of a reasonable request by another party (other than the Borrower):
(i)    confirm to that other party whether it is:
(A)    a FATCA Exempt Party; or
(B)    not a FATCA Exempt Party;
(ii)    supply to that other party such forms, documentation and other information relating to its status under FATCA as that other party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other party's compliance with FATCA;
(iii)    supply to that other party such forms, documentation and other information relating to its status as that other party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other party's compliance with any other law, regulation, or exchange of information regime.
(b)    If a party confirms to another party pursuant to paragraph (a)(i) above that it is a FATCA Exempt Party and it subsequently becomes aware that it is not or has ceased to be a FATCA Exempt Party, that party shall notify that other party reasonably promptly.
(c)    Paragraph (a) above shall not oblige any Lender or the Facility Agent to do anything, and paragraph (a)(iii) above shall not oblige any other party to do anything, which would or might in its reasonable opinion constitute a breach of:
(i)    any law or regulation;
(ii)    any fiduciary duty; or
        Page 66

(iii)    any duty of confidentiality.
(d)    If a party fails to confirm whether or not it is a FATCA Exempt Party or to supply forms, documentation or other information requested in accordance with paragraph (a)(i) or (ii) above (including, for the avoidance of doubt, where paragraph (c) above applies), then such party shall be treated for the purposes of the Loan Documents (and payments under them) as if it is not a FATCA Exempt Party until such time as the party in question provides the requested confirmation, forms, documentation or other information.
(e)     If the Borrower becomes a US Tax Obligor or the Facility Agent reasonably believes that its obligations under FATCA or any other applicable law or regulation require it, each Lender shall, within ten Business Days of:
(i)    where the Borrower is a US Tax Obligor, the date of this Agreement;
(ii)    where the Borrower is a US Tax Obligor on a date an assignment or transfer is made pursuant to Section 11.11.1 and the relevant Lender is an Assignee Lender or a Transferee Lender that becomes a Lender in accordance with Section 11.11.1, the date on which such Assignee Lender or Transferee Lender becomes a Lender;
(iii)    the date of a request from the Facility Agent,
supply to the Facility Agent:
(A)    a withholding certificate on Form W-8 (or any successor form), Form W-9 (or any successor form) or any other relevant form; or
(B)    any withholding statement or other document, authorisation or waiver as the Facility Agent may require to certify or establish the status of such Lender under FATCA or that other law or regulation.
(f)    The Facility Agent shall provide any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver it receives from a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) above to the Borrower.
(g)    If any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver provided to the Facility Agent by a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) above is or becomes materially inaccurate or incomplete, that Lender shall promptly update it and provide such updated withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver to the Facility Agent unless it is unlawful for the Lender to do so (in which case the Lender shall promptly notify the Facility Agent). The Facility Agent shall provide any such updated withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver to the Borrower.
(h)    The Facility Agent may rely on any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver it receives from a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) or (g) above without further verification. The
        Page 67

Facility Agent shall not be liable for any action taken by it under or in connection with paragraph (e), (f) or (g) above.
Resignation of the Facility Agent
The Facility Agent shall resign (and, to the extent applicable, shall use reasonable endeavours to appoint a successor Facility Agent) if:
(a)    the Facility Agent fails to respond to a request under Section 4.14 and the Borrower or a Lender reasonably believes that the Facility Agent will not be (or will have ceased to be) a FATCA Exempt Party; or
(b)    the information supplied by the Facility Agent pursuant to Section 4.14 indicates that the Facility Agent will not be (or will have ceased to be) a FATCA Exempt Party; or
(c)    the Facility Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the Facility Agent will not be (or will have ceased to be) a FATCA Exempt Party,
and (in each case) the Borrower or a Lender reasonably believes that a party to this Agreement will be required to make a FATCA Deduction that would not be required if the Facility Agent were a FATCA Exempt Party, and the Borrower or that Lender, by notice to the Facility Agent, requires it to resign, provided that any such resignation (i) shall be subject to the restrictions in the FEC Supplemental Assignment Agreement and (ii) shall not become effective until a successor Facility Agent has been appointed as provided in Section 10.5, such successor Facility Agent has accepted such appointment and the consent of each of Hermes and the Finnish Authority has been obtained for the resignation.

SECTION 7.1.17. Additional Undertakings
From the effectiveness of Amendment Number Two, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary set out in this Agreement or any other Loan Document:

(x)    $250,000,000 plus
(y)    the fair market value of any asset (other than (1) current assets, intercompany debt or equity instruments and (2) First Priority Assets or other assets owned by another First Priority Guarantor immediately prior to acquisition) acquired by any First Priority Guarantor after the effectiveness of Amendment Number Two; or
(C)    if the net proceeds therefrom are applied in accordance with Section 4.09(b)(i) or 4.09(b)(iii) of the Secured Note Indenture, to the extent applicable at such time; provided, however, that if, within 450 days of such Disposition, any net proceeds of such Disposition have not been utilized in accordance with such provisions and are retained by the Borrower or any Subsidiary after such application (such retained net proceeds, "Excess Proceeds"), then:

If any ECA Guarantor fails to accept such offer within the said 90 days referred to above, then the pro rata portion of such Excess Proceeds that would have been applied to prepay the ECA Financings with respect to such ECA Guarantor if such offer was accepted shall be retained and applied in accordance with the foregoing sub-clause (1)(i).

(C)    if the net proceeds therefrom are applied in accordance with those provisions of the Unsecured Note Indenture and/or the definitive documentation governing the DDTL Indebtedness to the extent applicable at the time which allow the Borrower to make an offer to prepay and/or repay the debt evidenced by the Unsecured Note Indenture and/or DDTL Indebtedness, as applicable; provided that, if any such net proceeds are retained by the Borrower or any Subsidiary after such application, the Borrower shall promptly repay or redeem all or any portion of any Indebtedness that is pari passu or senior in right of payment to the Obligations and for which a Third Priority Guarantor is a guarantor, in each case, subject to the terms of the documentation governing such Indebtedness (including the DDTL Indebtedness, the Unsecured Note Indebtedness, any Bank Indebtedness, any Credit Card Obligations, the Loan and any other Indebtedness under an ECA Financing); provided, further, that any repayment of Indebtedness under any revolving credit agreement pursuant to this paragraph shall be accompanied by a corresponding permanent reduction in the related revolving credit commitments.

(B)    the Borrower will not permit the Principal Subsidiary that acquires the relevant ECA Financed Vessel to incur any Indebtedness for borrowed money (including any guarantees in respect of Indebtedness);

(f)    Amount of Indebtedness. The Borrower shall ensure that:
(i)    the maximum aggregate principal amount of Bank Indebtedness (or any Permitted Refinancing thereof) guaranteed by the Second Priority Guarantors shall not exceed, in the aggregate, $5,300,000,000 (or its equivalent in any other currency) until the occurrence of a First Priority Release Event, a Second Priority Release Event, and a Third Priority Release Event;

(ii)    the maximum aggregate principal amount of Unsecured Note Indebtedness and DDTL Indebtedness (or any Permitted Refinancing of either of them), in each case, guaranteed by the Third Priority Guarantor shall not exceed, in the aggregate, $1,700,000,000 (or its equivalent in any other currency) until the occurrence of a Third Priority Release Event;

(a)    grant any Restricted Credit Enhancement in respect of any Indebtedness for borrowed money, provided that:
(i)    subject to the limitations set out in paragraph (b) below, this paragraph (a) shall not prohibit any Group Member from providing any Lien or Group Member Guarantee in connection with Indebtedness incurred after February 19, 2021 (provided that such Lien and/or Group Member Guarantee is issued at the same time, and in connection with, the initial incurrence of that Indebtedness (and is therefore not by way of additional credit support));
(ii)    in connection with a Permitted Refinancing of any Indebtedness, the relevant Group Member shall be entitled to provide the creditors under that Permitted Refinancing with Liens and/or Group Member Guarantees (as applicable) which:
(A)    in the case where the existing Indebtedness being refinanced was previously supported by Liens, the Liens and/or the Group Member Guarantees securing or supporting the Permitted Refinancing (as applicable) are over some or all of the same assets and:
(1)     with respect to any Liens, are with the same or lower priority as the Liens in respect of such assets that secured the Indebtedness being refinanced; and
(2)     with respect to any Group Member Guarantees, are Group Member Guarantees provided by a Group Member that owns (directly or indirectly) only those Vessels (or some of those Vessels but not any other Vessel) that were previously secured pursuant to the Liens referred to in the first sentence of this paragraph (A); and
(B)    in the case where the existing Indebtedness being refinanced was previously supported by any Group
        Page 100

Member Guarantee, the Group Member Guarantee(s) supporting such Permitted Refinancing are:
(1)    guarantees of obligations in an amount no greater than the guarantees granted in connection with the original Indebtedness being refinanced;
(2)    in the case where the entity providing the relevant Group Member Guarantee(s) supporting such Permitted Refinancing is the same entity providing the Group Member Guarantees that are being replaced, provided by entities owning (directly or indirectly) only those Vessels (or some of those Vessels but not any other Vessel) that it owned when the previous Group Member Guarantee was provided;
(3)    in the case where the entity providing the relevant Group Member Guarantee(s) supporting such Permitted Refinancing differs from the entity providing the Group Member Guarantees being replaced, provided by entities that directly or indirectly own Vessels with an aggregate book value no greater than the Vessels that were owned (directly or indirectly) by the previous provider of the relevant Group Member Guarantee(s) that supported the existing Indebtedness; and
(4)    the same or lower priority as the original Group Member Guarantee(s) and are issued by either the same entities or from shareholders of those entities,
this paragraph (a) shall not prohibit any Group Member from providing or maintaining any Lien in accordance with the provisions of Section 7.2.3(e) through to (s) inclusive, provided, however, that the proviso at the end of Section 7.2.3(e) shall apply with respect to Liens granted pursuant to that provision; and
(b)    incur any new Indebtedness (including Indebtedness of the type referred to in paragraph 7.2.9(a)(i) above but excluding any Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness in connection with paragraph 7.2.9(a)(ii) above) which is secured by a Lien or is supported by a Group Member Guarantee and which, when taken with all other Indebtedness incurred by the Group since February 19, 2021 and which is also secured by a Lien or supported by a Group Member Guarantee, is greater than $1,300,000,000 (but deducting from this amount for this purpose, (i) the amount of any additional Indebtedness incurred by the Borrower in connection with the drawing of the DDTL Indebtedness (whether pursuant to the accordion option or otherwise) or (ii) any Indebtedness borrowed in lieu of the drawing of the DDTL Indebtedness in the foregoing clause) or its equivalent in any other currency, and provided that no Group Member shall, as contemplated by the proviso to Section 7.2.3, from February 19, 2021 until the Guarantee Release Date (whereupon the relevant provisions of Exhibit R shall apply)
        Page 101

be permitted to grant any Lien over an ECA Financed Vessel as security for any Indebtedness permitted to be incurred under this Agreement after February 19, 2021.
Covenant Replacement. With effect on and from the Guarantee Release Date, it is agreed that Sections 7.2.2 and 7.2.3 shall be deleted in their entirety and replaced with the covenants and other provisions set out in Exhibit R, which shall become part of this Agreement and effective and binding on all parties hereto.
Borrower's Procurement Undertaking
