(d)    By its acceptance of any Warrant bearing the Restricted Legend, each Holder thereof and each owner of a beneficial interest therein acknowledges the restrictions on transfer of such Warrant set forth in this Agreement and in the Restricted Legend and agrees that it will transfer such Warrant only in accordance with this Agreement and such legend.

KE 47847727

transfer or exchange shall be the duly authorized, executed and delivered Warrants of the Partnership entitled to the benefits of this Agreement.

Section 2.08    Restrictions on Transfer and Exchange.
(a)    The transfer or exchange of any Warrant may only be made in accordance with this Section 2.08 and Section 2.07.

ARTICLE 3.    
SEPARATION OF WARRANTS; TERMS OF WARRANTS; EXERCISE OF WARRANTS
Section 3.01    Terms of Warrants; Exercise of Warrants.
(a)    Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Warrant shall be exercisable for one Common Unit (prior to giving effect to Net Unit Settlement), at the election of the Holder thereof,

    11

KE 47847727
137013624.2



either in full or from time to time in part during the period commencing on the first date that the Market Value per Common Unit is equal to or greater than $4.00, subject to the adjustments provided in Article 5 (the “Threshold Price”), and until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 25, 2024 (the “Expiration Time”), and shall entitle the Holder thereof to receive from the Partnership Warrant Units pursuant to Section 3.01(c). If all or any of the Warrants are exercised following the declaration of a distribution on Common Units, no decrease to or rescindment of any such declared but unpaid distribution will be made. Each Warrant not exercised prior to the Expiration Time shall become void and all rights thereunder and all rights in respect thereof under this agreement shall cease as of such time.
(b)    In order to exercise all or any of the Warrants (each, a “Warrant Exercise”), the Holder thereof must deliver to the Partnership (i) such Warrants and (ii) the form of election to exercise on the reverse thereof duly filled in and signed (the “Exercise Notice”).
(c)    If a Holder provides an Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 3.01(b), then the Warrant Exercise shall be “net unit settled” (a “Net Unit Settlement”) whereupon the Warrants that are exercised will be converted into Common Units pursuant to a cashless exercise, after which the Partnership will issue to the Holder the Warrant Units equal to the result obtained by (i) subtracting B from A, (ii) dividing the result by A, and (iii) multiplying the quotient by C as set forth in the following equation:
X = ((A - B)/A) × C
where:
X =
the Warrant Units issuable upon exercise pursuant to this paragraph (c).
A =
the Market Value on the day immediately preceding the date on which the Holder delivers the applicable Exercise Notice.
B =
the Exercise Price.
C =
the number of Common Units as to which the Warrants are then being exercised (the “Exercise Units”).
If the foregoing calculation results in a negative number, then no Common Units shall be issued upon exercise pursuant to this paragraph (c). For the avoidance of doubt, each Warrant entitles the Holder upon exercise at any time from the first date that the Threshold Price is met until the Expiration Time, to receive one Common Unit, prior to giving effect to Net Unit Settlement.
(d)    Upon compliance with the provisions set forth above, the Partnership shall deliver or cause to be delivered with all reasonable dispatch, to or upon the written order of the Holder and in such name or names as the Holder may designate, a certificate or certificates for the number of whole Warrant Units issuable upon the exercise of such Warrants or other securities or property to which such Holder is entitled, together with cash in lieu of fractional units as provided in Section 5.02 hereof. Such certificate or certificates or other securities or property shall be deemed to have

    12

KE 47847727
137013624.2



been issued, and any person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such Warrant Units or other securities or property, as of the date of the surrender of such Warrants, notwithstanding that the unit transfer books of the Partnership shall then be closed or the certificates or other securities or property have not been delivered.
(e)    If less than all the Warrants represented by a Warrant certificate are exercised, such Warrant certificate shall be surrendered and a new Warrant certificate of the same tenor and for the number of Warrants which were not exercised shall be executed by the Partnership and registered in such name or names as may be directed in writing by the Holder (subject to Section 2.08) and shall deliver the new Warrant certificate to the Person or Persons entitled to receive the same.
(f)    All Warrant certificates surrendered upon exercise of Warrants shall be canceled by the Partnership. Such canceled Warrant certificates shall then be disposed of by the Partnership in accordance with its standard procedures.
(g)    The Partnership shall keep copies of this Agreement and any notices given or received hereunder available for inspection by the Holders during normal business hours at its office upon reasonable notice to the Partnership by a Holder seeking inspection.
(h)    Certificates, if any, representing Warrant Units shall bear a Restricted Legend (with all references to Warrants therein replaced by references to Common Units, and with such changes thereto as the Partnership may deem appropriate in its reasonable judgment) if (i) the Warrants for which they were issued carried a Restricted Legend or (ii) the Warrant Units are issued in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act (other than the exemption provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act), in each case until and unless the circumstances set forth in Section 2.02(c) apply to such Warrant Units, and any transfers thereof shall comply with the Restricted Legend.
Section 3.02    Conditional Exercise. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, if an exercise of any portion of a Warrant is to be made in connection with a public offering or a sale of the Partnership (pursuant to a merger, sale of assets, or otherwise), such exercise may at the election of the Holder be conditioned upon the consummation of such transaction, in which case such exercise shall not be deemed to be effective until immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction.
Section 3.03    Privatization Event. Upon the occurrence of a Privatization Event, the Partnership shall pay to such Holder of outstanding Warrants as of the date of such Privatization Event, an amount in immediately available funds equal to the Cash Redemption Value for such Warrants, not later than the date which is ten (10) Business Days after such Privatization Event and the Warrants shall thereafter be cancelled. The cash redemption value for any Warrant (the “Cash Redemption Value”) will equal the fair value of the Warrant as of the date of such Privatization Event as determined by an Independent Financial Expert. The Cash Redemption Value of the Warrants shall be due and payable within ten (10) Business Days after the date of the applicable Privatization Event.
Section 3.04    Cost Basis Information. For purposes of Section 6045B of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder, the Partnership shall record the cost basis for Warrant Units issued

    13

KE 47847727
137013624.2



pursuant to a cashless exercise at the time the Partnership confirms the number of Warrant Units issuable in connection with the cashless exercise.

The Partnership will give prompt written notice to the Holders of any such designation or rescission and of any change in the location of any such other office or agency.
Section 4.02    Payment of Taxes. The Partnership will pay all documentary, stamp or similar issue or transfer taxes in respect of the issuance or delivery of Warrant Units upon the exercise of Warrants; provided that the exercising Holder shall be required to pay any tax or taxes which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issue of any Warrants or any Warrant Units in a name other than that of the registered holder of a Warrant surrendered upon exercise.
Section 4.03    Rule 144 Information. For so long as any of the Warrants or Warrant Units remain outstanding and constitute “restricted securities” under Rule 144, the Partnership will (i) make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144, at all times after the date of this Agreement; (ii) so long as a Holder owns any Warrants or Warrant Units, furnish to the Holder upon written request a written statement by the Company as to its compliance with the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act; and (iii) cooperate with the Holders in any sale or transfer of Warrants or Warrant Units pursuant to Rule 144.
Section 4.04    Reservation of Warrant Units.
(a)    The Partnership will at all times reserve and keep available for issuance and delivery, free and clear of all liens, security interests, charges and other encumbrances or restrictions on sale and free and clear of all preemptive rights, such number of its Common Units or other securities of the Partnership as will from time to time be sufficient to permit the exercise in full of all outstanding Warrants pursuant to Net Unit Settlements.
(b)    The Partnership will keep a copy of this Agreement on file with the transfer agent for the Common Units (the “Transfer Agent”) and with every subsequent transfer agent for any of the Partnership’s securities issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants. The Partnership will supply such Transfer Agent with duly executed certificates for such purposes and will provide or otherwise make available any cash which may be payable as provided in Section 3.01 or Section 5.02 hereof. The Partnership will furnish such Transfer Agent a copy of all notices of adjustments, and certificates related thereto, transmitted to each Holder pursuant to Section 5.01(d) hereof.

ARTICLE 5.    
ADJUSTMENTS
Section 5.01    Adjustments. The Threshold Price and the number of Warrant Units issuable upon the exercise of each Warrant pursuant to a Net Unit Settlement are subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of the events enumerated in this Section 5.01.
In the event that, at any time as a result of the provisions of this Section 5.01, the Holders of the Warrants shall become entitled upon subsequent exercise to receive any shares of Capital Stock of the Partnership other than Common Units, the number of such other shares so receivable upon exercise of this Warrant pursuant to a Net Unit Settlement shall thereafter be subject to adjustment from time to time in a manner and on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions contained herein.
(a)    Adjustments for Change in Capital Stock.
(i)    If the Partnership pays a dividend (or other distribution) in Common Units to all holders of Common Units, then (A) the Warrant Units in effect immediately following the record date for such dividend (or distribution) shall be multiplied by the following fraction and (B) the Threshold Price in effect immediately following the record date for such dividend (or distribution) shall be divided by the following fraction:
OS1
OS0
where:
OS0
=
the number of Common Units outstanding immediately prior to the record date for such dividend or distribution.
OS1
=
the sum of (A) the number of Common Units outstanding immediately prior to the record date for such dividend or distribution and (B) the total number of Common Units constituting such dividend.
In any such event, the number of Warrant Units issuable upon exercise of each Warrant at the time of the record date for such dividend or distribution shall be proportionately adjusted so that the Holder, after such date, shall be entitled to purchase the number of Common Units that such Holder would have owned or been entitled to receive in respect of the Common Units subject to the Warrant after such date had the Warrant been exercised immediately prior to such date.
(ii)    If the Partnership issues to all holders of Common Units rights, options or warrants entitling them to subscribe for or purchase Common Units at less than the Market Value determined on the Ex-Date for such issuance, then (A) the Warrant Units in effect immediately following the close of business on the Ex-Date for such issuance shall be multiplied by the following fraction and (B) the Threshold Price in effect immediately

    15

KE 47847727
137013624.2



following the close of business on the Ex-Date for such issuance shall be divided by the following fraction:
OS0 + X
OS0 + Y
where:
OS0
=
the number of Common Units outstanding at the close of business on the record date for such issuance.
X
=
the total number of Common Units issuable pursuant to such rights, options or warrants.
Y
=
the number of Common Units equal to the aggregate price payable to exercise such rights, options or warrants divided by the Market Value determined as of the Ex-Date for such issuance.
In any such event, the number of Warrant Units issuable upon the exercise of each Warrant immediately prior to the date of the agreement on pricing of such rights, options or warrants (the “Initial Number”) shall be increased to the number obtained by multiplying the Initial Number by a fraction (i) the numerator of which shall be the sum of (x) the number of Common Units outstanding on such date and (y) the number of additional Common Units issuable in connection with such rights, options or warrants and (ii) the denominator of which shall be the sum of (1) the number of Common Units outstanding on such date and (2) the number of Common Units that the aggregate consideration receivable by the Partnership for the total number of Common Units so issuable in connection with such rights, options or warrants would purchase at the Market Value on the last trading day preceding the date of the agreement on pricing such rights, options or warrants.
To the extent that such rights, options or warrants are not exercised in full prior to their expiration or Common Units are otherwise not delivered in full pursuant to such rights or warrants upon the exercise of such rights or warrants, then the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price shall be readjusted to the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price that would have then been in effect had the adjustment made upon the issuance of such rights, options or warrants been made on the basis of the delivery of only the number of Common Units actually delivered. If such rights, options or warrants are only exercisable upon the occurrence of certain triggering events, then the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price shall not be adjusted until such triggering events occur. In determining the aggregate offering price payable for such Common Units, the Partnership shall take into account any consideration received for such rights, options or warrants and the value of such consideration (if other than cash, to be determined by the reasonable judgment of the Board of Directors).
(iii)    If the Partnership subdivides, combines or reclassifies the Common Units into a greater or lesser number of Common Units, then (A) the number of Warrant Units in effect immediately following the effective date of such unit subdivision, combination or reclassification shall be multiplied by the following fraction and (B) the Threshold Price in

    16

KE 47847727
137013624.2



effect immediately following the effective date of such unit subdivision, combination or reclassification shall be divided by the following fraction:
OS1
OS0
where:
OS0
=
the number of Common Units outstanding immediately prior to the effective date of such unit subdivision, combination or reclassification.
OS1
=
the number of Common Units outstanding immediately after the opening of business on the effective date of such unit subdivision, combination or reclassification.
In any such event, the number of Warrant Units issuable upon exercise of each Warrant at the time of the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification shall be proportionately adjusted so that the Holder, after such date, shall be entitled to purchase the number of Common Units that such Holder would have owned or been entitled to receive in respect of the Common Units subject to the Warrant after such date had the Warrant been exercised immediately prior to such date.
(iv)    If the Partnership distributes to all holders of Common Units evidences of indebtedness, shares of Capital Stock (other than Common Units) or other assets (including cash, securities and any other property, but excluding any Specified Distributions), then (A) the number of Warrant Units in effect immediately following the close of business on the record date for such distribution shall be multiplied by the following fraction and (B) the Threshold Price in effect immediately following the close of business on the record date for such distribution shall be divided by the following fraction:
SP0
SP0 - FMV
where:
SP0
=
the Closing Sale Price per Common Unit on the Trading Day immediately preceding the Ex-Date.
FMV
=
the fair market value of the portion of the distribution applicable to one Common Unit on the Trading Day immediately preceding the Ex-Date as determined by the Board of Directors.

In a spin-off, where the Partnership makes a distribution to all holders of Common Units consisting of Capital Stock of any class or series, or similar equity interests of, or relating to, a subsidiary or other business unit, (A) the number of Warrant Units shall be adjusted on the fourteenth

    17

KE 47847727
137013624.2



Trading Day after the effective date of the distribution by multiplying the number of Warrant Units in effect immediately prior to such fourteenth Trading Day by the following fraction and (B) the Threshold Price shall be adjusted on the fourteenth Trading Day after the effective date of the distribution by dividing the Threshold Price in effect immediately prior to such fourteenth Trading Day by the following fraction:
MP0+ MPs
MP0
where:
MP0
=
the average of the Closing Sale Price of the Common Units over each of the first 10 Trading Days commencing on and including the fifth Trading Day following the effective date of such distribution.
MPS
=
the average of the closing sale price of the Capital Stock or equity interests representing the portion of the distribution applicable to one Common Unit over each of the first 10 Trading Days commencing on and including the fifth Trading Day following the effective date of such distribution, or, as reported in the principal securities exchange or quotation system or market on which such shares are traded, or if not traded on a national or regional securities exchange or over-the-counter market, the fair market value of the Capital Stock or equity interests representing the portion of the distribution applicable to one Common Unit on such date as determined by the Board of Directors.
In the event that such distribution described in this clause (iv) is not so made, the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price shall be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board of Directors publicly announces its decision not to pay such dividend or distribution, to the number of Warrant Units that would then be in effect if such dividend distribution had not been declared.
(v)    In case the Partnership effects a Pro Rata Repurchase of Common Units, then (A) the number of Warrant Units shall be adjusted by dividing the number of Warrant Units in effect immediately prior to the effective date of such Pro Rata Repurchase by the following fraction and (B) the Threshold Price shall be adjusted by multiplying the Threshold Price in effect immediately prior to the effective date of such Pro Rata Repurchase by the following fraction: the numerator of such fraction shall be (i) the product of (x) the number of Common Units outstanding immediately before such Pro Rata Repurchase and (y) the Market Value of a Common Unit on the trading day immediately preceding the first public announcement by the Partnership or any of its Affiliates of the intent to effect such Pro Rata Repurchase, minus (ii) the aggregate purchase price of the Pro Rata Repurchase, and the denominator of such fraction shall be the product of (1) the number of Common Units outstanding immediately prior to such Pro Rata Repurchase minus the number of Common Units so repurchased and (2) the Market Value per Common Unit on the trading day immediately preceding the first public announcement by the Partnership or any of its Affiliates of the intent to effect such Pro Rata Repurchase.

137013624.2



(vi)    In case of any Business Combination or reclassification of Common Units (other than a reclassification of Common Units referred to in Section 5.01(a)(iii)), the Holder’s right to receive Warrant Units upon exercise of the Warrants shall be converted into the right to exercise the Warrants to acquire the number of shares of stock or other securities or property (including cash) that the Common Units issuable (at the time of such Business Combination or reclassification) upon exercise of each Warrant immediately prior to such Business Combination or reclassification would have been entitled to receive upon consummation of such Business Combination or reclassification; and in any such case, if necessary, the provisions set forth herein with respect to the rights and interests thereafter of the Holder shall be appropriately adjusted so as to be applicable, as nearly as may reasonably be, to the Holder’s right to exercise each Warrant in exchange for any shares of stock or other securities or property pursuant to this Section 5.01(a)(vi). In determining the kind and amount of stock, securities or the property receivable upon exercise of each Warrant following the consummation of such Business Combination, if the holders of Common Units have the right to elect the kind or amount of consideration receivable upon consummation of such Business Combination, then the Holder shall have the right to make a similar election (including being subject to similar proration constraints) upon exercise of each Warrant with respect to the number of shares of stock or other securities or property that the Holder will receive upon exercise of a Warrant.
(vii)    If the Partnership issues Common Units at less than 50% of the Threshold Price per Common Unit, then the Threshold Price in effect at the close of business on the day immediately preceding the issuance date for such issuance shall be divided by the following fraction:
OS0 + X
OS0 + Y
where:
OS0
=
the number of Common Units outstanding at the close of business on the day immediately preceding the issuance date for such issuance.
X
=
the total number of Common Units issued in such issuance.
Y
=
the number of Common Units equal to the aggregate price paid as consideration for the Common Units issued in such issuance divided by 56.25% of the Threshold Price per Common Unit as of the issuance date for such issuance.

The provisions of this clause (vii) shall not apply to an issuance unless such issuance has been approved by a committee of the Board of Directors composed solely of two or more directors who are Independent Directors (as such term is defined in the Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of the

    19

KE 47847727
137013624.2



General Partner, as in effect on the date hereof). No adjustment pursuant to this clause (vii) shall be made if such adjustment would result in an increase of the Threshold Price then in effect.

For purposes of this clause (vii), if the Partnership grants, issues or sells Options or Convertible Securities, and the lowest price per unit for which one Common Unit is issuable upon the conversion, exchange or exercise thereof is less than 50.0% of the Threshold Price per Common Unit, then such Common Unit shall be deemed to be outstanding and to have been issued and sold by the Partnership at the time of the issuance of such security for such price per unit. For purposes of this paragraph, the “lowest price per unit for which one Common Unit is issuable upon the conversion, exchange or exercise thereof” shall be equal to the sum of the lowest amounts of consideration (if any) received or receivable by the Partnership with respect to any one Common Unit upon the issuance of such security and upon conversion, exchange or exercise thereof less any consideration paid or payable by the Partnership with respect to such one Common Unit upon the issuance of such security and upon conversion, exchange or exercise thereof. No further adjustment of the Threshold Price shall be made upon the actual issuance of such Common Units upon the conversion, exchange or exercise or such security or upon the actual issuance of such Common Unit.

For purposes of this clause (vii), if the purchase price provided for in any Options, the additional consideration, if any, payable upon the issue, conversion, exercise or exchange of any Convertible Securities, or the rate at which any Convertible Securities are convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Units increases or decreases at any time, the Threshold Price in effect at the time of such increase or decrease shall be adjusted to the Threshold Price which would have been in effect at such time had such Options or Convertible Securities provided for such increased or decreased purchase price, additional consideration or increased or decreased conversion rate, as the case may be, at the time initially granted, issued or sold. For purposes of this paragraph, if the terms of any Option or Convertible Security that was outstanding as of the date of this Agreement are increased or decreased in the manner described in the immediately preceding sentence, then such Option or Convertible Security and the Common Units deemed issuable upon exercise, conversion or exchange thereof shall be deemed to have been issued as of the date of such increase or decrease. No adjustment pursuant to this paragraph shall be made if such adjustment would result in an increase of the Threshold Price.

For purposes of this clause (vii), in case any Option is issued in connection with the issue or sale of other securities of the Partnership, together comprising one integrated transaction, (A) the Options will be deemed to have been issued for the Option Value of such Options and (B) the other securities issued or sold in such integrated transaction shall be deemed to have been issued for the difference of (x) the aggregate consideration received by the Partnership less any consideration paid or payable by the Partnership pursuant to the terms of such other securities of the Partnership, less

    20

KE 47847727
137013624.2



(y) the Option Value. If any Common Units, Options or Convertible Securities are issued or sold or deemed to have been issued or sold for cash, the consideration received therefor will be deemed to be the net amount received by the Partnership therefor. If any Common Units, Options or Convertible Securities are issued or sold for consideration other than cash, the amount of such consideration received by the Partnership will be the fair market value of such consideration, except where such consideration consists of securities, in which case the amount of consideration received by the Partnership will be the closing sale price of such security on the date of receipt. If any Common Units, Options or Convertible Securities are issued to the owners of the non-surviving entity in connection with any merger in which the Partnership is the surviving entity, the amount of consideration therefor will be deemed to be the fair market value of such portion of the net assets and business of the non-surviving entity as is attributable to such Common Units, Options or Convertible Securities, as the case may be.


(viii)    The Partnership reserves the right to make such reductions in the Exercise Price or increases to the number of Warrant Units as it considers advisable in order that any event treated for Federal income tax purposes as a dividend of stock or stock rights will not be taxable to the recipients. In the event the Partnership elects to make such a reduction in the Exercise Price or increase in the number of Warrant Units, the Partnership shall comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act, and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder if and to the extent that such laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the reduction of the Exercise Price or increase in the number of Warrant Units.
(ix)    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 5.01(a), rights or warrants distributed by the Partnership to all holders of Common Units entitling the holders thereof to subscribe for or purchase shares of the Partnership’s Capital Stock (either initially or under certain circumstances), which rights or warrants, until the occurrence of a specified event or events (“Trigger Event”): (A) are deemed to be transferred with such Common Units; (B) are not exercisable; and (C) are also issued in respect of future issuances of Common Units, shall be deemed not to have been distributed for purposes of this Section 5.01(a) (and no adjustment to the number of Warrant Units or Threshold Price under this Section 5.01(a) will be required) until the occurrence of the earliest Trigger Event, whereupon such rights and warrants shall be deemed to have been distributed and an appropriate adjustment (if any is required) to the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price shall be made under Section 5.01(a)(ii). In addition, in the event of any distribution (or deemed distribution) of rights or warrants, or any Trigger Event or other event with respect thereto that was counted for purposes of calculating a distribution amount for which an adjustment to the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price under this Section 5.01(a) was made, (1) in the case of any such rights or warrants that shall all have been redeemed or repurchased without exercise by any holders thereof, the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price shall be readjusted upon such final redemption or repurchase to give effect to such distribution or Trigger Event, as the case may be, as though it were a cash distribution,

    21

KE 47847727
137013624.2



equal to the per unit redemption or repurchase price received by a holder or holders of Common Units with respect to such rights or warrants (assuming such holder had retained such rights or warrants), made to all holders of Common Units as of the date of such redemption or repurchase, and (2) in the case of such rights or warrants that shall have expired or been terminated without exercise thereof, the number of Warrant Units and Threshold Price shall be readjusted as if such expired or terminated rights and warrants had not been issued. To the extent that the Partnership has a rights plan or agreement in effect upon exercise of the Warrants, which rights plan provides for rights or warrants of the type described in this clause, then upon exercise of the Warrants pursuant to a Net Unit Settlement, the Holder will receive, in addition to the Common Units to which he is entitled, a corresponding number of rights in accordance with the rights plan, unless a Trigger Event has occurred and the adjustments to the number of Warrant Units with respect thereto have been made in accordance with the foregoing. In lieu of any such adjustment, the Partnership may amend such applicable unitholder rights plan or agreement to provide that upon exercise of the Warrants pursuant to a Net Unit Settlement, the Holders will receive, in addition to the Common Units issuable upon such exercise, the rights that would have attached to such Common Units if the Trigger Event had not occurred under such applicable unitholder rights plan or agreement.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 5.01, no adjustment to the number of Warrant Units shall be made with respect to any distribution or other transaction if Holders are entitled to participate in such distribution or transaction as if they held a number of Common Units issuable upon exercise of the Warrants pursuant to a Net Unit Settlement immediately prior to such event, without having to exercise their Warrants.
(c)    If the Partnership shall take a record of the holders of its Common Units for the purpose of entitling them to receive a dividend or other distribution, and shall thereafter (and before the dividend or distribution has been paid or delivered to unitholders) abandon its plan to pay or deliver such dividend or distribution, then thereafter no adjustment in the number of Warrant Units or Threshold Price then in effect shall be required by reason of the taking of such record.
(d)    Notice of Adjustment. Whenever the number of Warrant Units is adjusted, the Partnership shall provide the notices required by Section 5.03 hereof.
(e)    Fair Market Value Determination. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, whenever the Board of Directors is permitted or required to determine fair market value, such determination shall be made in good faith. If the Board of Directors is unable to determine the fair market value, or if the Holders of more than fifty percent (50%) of all of the Warrants then outstanding (collectively, the “Requesting Holders”) disagree with the Board of Director’s determination of fair market value by written notice delivered to the Partnership within thirty (30) days after the determination thereof by the Board of Directors is communicated to the Holders affected thereby, which notice specifies the Requesting Holders’ determination of such fair market value, then following a thirty (30) day period in which the Partnership and the Requesting Holders shall attempt to resolve the differences in their fair market value determinations, an Independent Financial Expert shall determine such fair market value. Such Independent Financial Expert’s determination of such

    22

KE 47847727
137013624.2



fair market value shall be final, binding and conclusive on the Partnership and the Holders. Any and all costs and fees of such Independent Financial Expert shall be split equally between the Partnership, on the one hand, and the Requesting Holders, on the other.
(f)    When Issuance or Payment May be Deferred. In any case in which this Section 5.01 shall require that an adjustment in the number of Warrant Units be made effective as of a record date for a specified event, the Partnership may elect to defer until the occurrence of such event (i) issuing to the Holder of any Warrant exercised after such record date the number of Warrant Units and other Capital Stock of the Partnership, if any, issuable upon such exercise and pursuant to a Net Unit Settlement over and above the Warrant Units and other Capital Stock of the Partnership, if any, issuable upon such exercise and (ii) paying to such Holder any amount in cash in lieu of a fractional unit pursuant to Section 5.02 hereof; provided that the Partnership shall deliver to such Holder a due bill or other appropriate instrument evidencing such Holder’s right to receive such additional Warrant Units, other Capital Stock and cash upon the occurrence of the event requiring such adjustment.
(g)    Form of Warrants. Irrespective of any adjustments in the number of Warrant Units or the number of units purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants, Warrants theretofore or thereafter issued may continue to express the same price and number and kind of units as are stated in the Warrants initially issuable pursuant to this Agreement.
Section 5.02    Fractional Interests. The Partnership shall not issue fractional Warrant Units or scrip representing fractional units on the exercise of Warrants. If more than one Warrant shall be presented for exercise in full at the same time by the same Holder, the number of full Warrant Units which shall be issuable upon the exercise thereof shall be computed on the basis of the aggregate number of Warrant Units issuable on exercise of the Warrants so presented. If any fraction of a Warrant Unit would, except for the provisions of this Section 5.02, be issuable on the exercise of any Warrants (or specified portion thereof), the Partnership shall pay an amount in cash equal to the current Closing Sale Price per Warrant Unit, as determined on the date the Warrant is presented for exercise, multiplied by such fraction, computed to the nearest whole U.S. cent.
Section 5.03    Notices to Warrantholders.
(a)    Upon any adjustment of the number of Warrant Units pursuant to Section 5.01 hereof, the Partnership shall promptly thereafter cause to be delivered to each of the Holders written notice, by first-class mail, postage prepaid, setting forth the number of Warrant Units after such adjustment and setting forth in reasonable detail the method of calculation and the facts upon which such calculations are based and setting forth the number of Warrant Units (or portion thereof) or other securities or property issuable after such adjustment, upon exercise of a Warrant. Where appropriate, such notice may be given in advance and included as a part of the notice required to be mailed under the other provisions of this Section 5.03.

(b)    In case:
(i)    the Partnership shall authorize the issuance to all holders of Common Units of rights, options or warrants to subscribe for or purchase Common Units or of any other subscription rights or warrants;
(ii)    the Partnership shall authorize the distribution to all holders of Common Units of evidences of its indebtedness or assets (other than dividends or distributions referred to in Section 5.01(a) hereof);
(iii)    of any reclassification or change of Common Units issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, or a tender offer or exchange offer for Common Units by the Partnership;
(iv)    of the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Partnership; or
(v)    the Partnership proposes to take any action which would require an adjustment of the number of Warrant Units pursuant to Section 5.01 hereof;
then the Partnership shall cause to be given to each of the Holders, at least 10 days prior to any applicable record date, or promptly in the case of events for which there is no record date, by first-class mail, postage prepaid, a written notice stating (x) the date as of which the holders of record of Common Units to be entitled to receive any such rights, options, warrants or distribution are to be determined, (y) the initial expiration date set forth in any tender offer or exchange offer for Common Units, or (z) the date on which any such consolidation, merger, conveyance, transfer, dissolution, liquidation or winding up is expected to become effective or consummated, and the date as of which it is expected that holders of record of Common Units shall be entitled to exchange such units for securities or other property, if any, deliverable upon such reclassification, consolidation, merger, conveyance, transfer, dissolution, liquidation or winding up. The failure to give the notice required by this Section 5.03 or any defect therein shall not affect the legality or validity of any distribution, right, option, warrant, consolidation, merger, conveyance, transfer, dissolution, liquidation or winding up, or the vote upon any action.
Section 5.04    No Rights as Unitholders. Nothing contained in this Agreement or the Warrants shall be construed as conferring upon the holders of Warrants the right to vote or to consent or to receive notice as unitholders in respect of the meetings of unitholders or any other matter, or any rights whatsoever, including the right to receive dividends, as unitholders of the Partnership, or the right to share in the assets of the Partnership in the event of its liquidation, dissolution or winding up, except in respect of Common Units received following exercise of Warrants. In addition, nothing contained in this Agreement or the Warrants shall be construed as imposing any liabilities on the Holder as a unitholder of the Partnership, whether such liabilities are asserted by the Partnership or by creditors of the Partnership.

of the holders of at least 80% of the outstanding Warrants. Any amendment or modification of or supplement to this Agreement or the Warrants, any waiver of any provision of this Agreement, and any consent to any departure by the Partnership, the Investor or any Holder from the terms of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which such amendment, supplement, modification, waiver or consent has been made or given. In addition, any term of a specific Warrant may be amended or waived with the written consent of the Partnership and the Holder of such Warrant.
(c)    Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (b), without the consent of each Holder affected, an amendment or waiver may not:
(i)    increase the Exercise Price;
(ii)    reduce the term of the Warrants;
(iii)    make a material and adverse change that does not equally affect all Warrants; or
(iv)    decrease the number of Common Units, cash or other securities or property issuable upon exercise of the Warrants,
except, in each case, for adjustments expressly provided for in this Agreement.
(d)    It is not necessary for Holders to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, supplement or waiver if their consent approves the substance thereof.
(e)    An amendment, supplement or waiver under this Section will become effective on receipt by the Partnership of written consents from the Holders of the requisite percentage of the outstanding Warrants. After an amendment, supplement or waiver under this Section becomes effective, the Partnership will send to the Holders affected thereby a notice describing the amendment, supplement or waiver in reasonable detail. Any failure of the Partnership to send such notice, or any defect therein, will not, however, in any way impair or affect the validity of any such supplemental indenture or waiver.
(f)    After an amendment, supplement or waiver becomes effective, it will bind every Holder unless it is of the type requiring the consent of each Holder affected. If the amendment, supplement or waiver is of the type requiring the consent of each Holder affected, the amendment, supplement or waiver will bind each Holder that has consented to it and every subsequent Holder of a Warrant with respect to which consent was granted.
(g)    If an amendment, supplement or waiver changes the terms of a Warrant, the Partnership may require the Holder to deliver it to the Partnership so that the Partnership may place an appropriate notation of the changed terms on the Warrant and return it to the Holder, or exchange it for a new Warrant that reflects the changed terms. However, the effectiveness of the amendment, supplement or waiver is not affected by any failure to annotate or exchange Warrants in this fashion.
