(d) Security Interests. The security interests in the Collateral granted hereunder constitute valid security interests in the Collateral, securing payment of the Secured Obligations.

SECTION 4. Further Assurances.

Company agrees that from time to time, at the expense of Company, Company will promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action, that may be necessary or desirable, or that Security Agent may reasonably request, in order to perfect and protect any security interest granted or purported to be granted hereby or to enable Security Agent to exercise and enforce its rights and remedies hereunder with respect to any Collateral. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Company will: (a) (i) execute (if necessary) and file such financing or continuation statements, or amendments thereto and (ii) deliver such other instruments or notices, in each case, as may be necessary or desirable, or as Security Agent may request, in order to perfect and preserve the security interests granted or purported to be granted hereby; (b) furnish to Security Agent from time to time statements and schedules further identifying and describing the Collateral and such other reports in connection with the Collateral as Security Agent may reasonably request, all in reasonable detail; (c) at Security Agent's request, appear in and defend any action or proceeding that may affect and take any and all other actions necessary to defend Company's title to or Finance Parties' security interest in all or any part of the Collateral and the priority thereof; and (d) use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any necessary consents of third parties to the creation and perfection of a security interest in favor of Finance Parties with respect to any Collateral.

In connection with such collections, Company may take (and, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default at Security Agent's direction, shall take) such action as Company or Security Agent may deem necessary or advisable to enforce collection of amounts due or to become due under the Pledged Accounts; provided, however, that Security Agent shall have the right at any time, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default and upon written notice to Company of its intention to do so, to (a) notify the account debtors or obligors under any Pledged Accounts of the assignment of such Pledged Accounts to Security Agent and to direct such account debtors or obligors to make payment of all amounts due or to become due to Company thereunder directly to Security Agent, (b) notify each Person maintaining a lockbox or similar arrangement to which account debtors or obligors under any Pledged Accounts have been directed to make payment to remit all amounts representing collections on checks and other payment items from time to time sent to or deposited in such lockbox or other arrangement directly to Security Agent, (c) enforce collection of any such Pledged Accounts at the expense of Company, and (d) adjust, settle or compromise the amount or payment thereof, in the same manner and to the same extent as Company might have done. After receipt by Company of the notice from Security Agent referred to in the proviso to the preceding sentence, (i) all amounts and proceeds (including checks and other Instruments) received by Company in respect of the Pledged Accounts shall be received in trust for the benefit of Security Agent hereunder, shall be segregated from other funds of Company and shall be forthwith paid over or delivered to Security Agent in the same form as so received (with any necessary endorsement), and (ii) Company shall not, without the written consent of Security Agent, adjust, settle or compromise the amount or payment of any Pledged Account, or release wholly or partly any account debtor or obligor thereof, or allow any credit or discount thereon.

SECTION 7. Security Agent Appointed Attorney-in-Fact.

Company hereby irrevocably appoints Security Agent as Company's attorney-in-fact, with full authority in the place and stead of Company and in the name of Company, Security Agent or otherwise, from time to time in Security Agent's discretion to take any action and to execute any instrument that Security Agent may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, including, without limitation:

(a) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to ask for, demand, collect, sue for, recover, compound, receive and give acquittance and receipts for moneys due and to become due under or in respect of any of the Collateral;

(b) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to receive, endorse and collect any drafts or other Instruments, Documents, Chattel Paper and other documents in connection with clause (a) above;

(c) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to file any claims or take any action or institute any proceedings that Security Agent may deem necessary or desirable for the collection of any of the Collateral or otherwise to enforce or protect the rights of Security Agent with respect to any of the Collateral;

(d) to pay or discharge liens (other than liens permitted under this Agreement or the Credit Agreement) levied or placed upon or threatened against the Collateral, the legality or validity thereof and the amounts necessary to discharge the same to be determined by Security Agent in its sole discretion, any such payments made by Security Agent to become obligations of Company to Security Agent, due and payable immediately without demand;

 

4


(e) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to sign and endorse any invoices, freight or express bills, drafts against debtors, assignments, verifications and notices in connection with Pledged Accounts and other documents relating to the Collateral; and

(f) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, generally to sell, transfer, pledge, make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with any of the Collateral as fully and completely as though Security Agent were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes, and to do, at Security Agent's option and Company's expense, at any time or from time to time, all acts and things that Security Agent deems necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon the Collateral and the ranking of the Collateral and Finance Parties' security interest therein in order to effect the intent of this Agreement, all as fully and effectively as Company might do.

SECTION 8. Security Agent May Perform; Standard of Care.

If Company fails to perform any agreement contained herein, Security Agent may itself perform, or cause performance of, such agreement, and the expenses of Security Agent incurred in connection therewith shall be payable by Company under Section 11 of this Agreement. The powers conferred on Security Agent hereunder are solely to protect interest of Finance Parties in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers. Except for the exercise of reasonable care in the custody of any Collateral in its possession and the accounting for moneys actually received by it hereunder, Security Agent shall have no duty as to any Collateral or as to the taking of any necessary steps to preserve rights against prior parties or any other rights pertaining to any Collateral. Security Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of Collateral in its possession if such Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which Security Agent accords its own property.

SECTION 9. Remedies.

If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, to the extent permitted by applicable laws, Security Agent, on behalf of Finance Parties, may exercise in respect of the Collateral, in addition to all other rights and remedies provided for herein or otherwise available to it, all the rights and remedies of a secured party on default under the UCC (whether or not the UCC applies to the affected Collateral), and also may (i) require Company to, and Company hereby agrees that it will at its expense and upon request of Security Agent forthwith, assemble all or part of the Collateral as directed by Security Agent and make it available to Security Agent at a place to be designated by Security Agent that is reasonably convenient to both parties, (ii) enter onto the property where any Collateral is located and take possession thereof with or without judicial process, (iii) prior to the disposition of the Collateral, store, process or otherwise prepare the Collateral for disposition in any manner to the extent Security Agent deems appropriate and (iv) sell the Collateral or any part thereof in one or more parcels at public or private sale, at any of Security Agent's offices or elsewhere, for cash, on credit or for future delivery, at such time or times and at such price or prices and upon such other

 

5


terms as Security Agent may deem commercially reasonable. Security Agent or any Finance Party may be the purchaser of any or all of the Collateral at any such sale and Security Agent, shall be entitled, for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the Collateral sold at any such public sale, to use and apply any of the Secured Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any Collateral payable by Security Agent at such sale. Company hereby waives any claims against Security Agent arising by reason of the fact that the price at which any Collateral may have been sold at such a private sale was less than the price which might have been obtained at a public sale, even if Security Agent accepts the first offer received and does not offer such Collateral to more than one offeree. If the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay all the Secured Obligations, Company shall be liable for the deficiency and the fees of any attorneys employed by Security Agent to collect such deficiency. Company further agrees that a breach of any of the covenants contained in this Section 9 will cause irreparable injury to Security Agent, that Security Agent has no adequate remedy at law in respect of such breach and, as a consequence, that each and every covenant contained in this Section 9 shall be specifically enforceable against Company, and Company hereby waives and agrees not to assert any defenses against an action for specific performance of such covenants except for a defense that no default has occurred giving rise to the Secured Obligations becoming due and payable prior to their stated maturities.

SECTION 10. Application of Proceeds.

Except as expressly provided elsewhere in this Agreement, all monies from time to time received or recovered by the Security Agent in respect of any sale of, collection from, or other realization upon all or any part of the Collateral shall be paid to and held by the Security Agent to apply them at such times as the Security Agent sees fit, to the extent permitted by applicable law in accordance with Clause 29 of the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 11. Indemnity and Expenses.

Company agrees to indemnify Security Agent and each Finance Party in accordance with the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 12. Amendments; Etc.

No amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of this Agreement, and no consent to any departure by Company therefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by Security Agent and, in the case of any such amendment or modification, by Company. Any such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it was given.

SECTION 13. Notices.

Any notice or other communication herein required or permitted to be given shall be given in accordance with Clause 30 of the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 14. Failure Or Indulgence Not Waiver; Remedies Cumulative; Severability.

(a) If, at any time, any provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect under any law of any jurisdiction, neither the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions nor the legality, validity or enforceability of such provision under the law of any other jurisdiction will in any way be affected or impaired.

(b) No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of any Finance Party, any right or remedy under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy prevent any further or other exercise or the exercise of any other right or remedy. The rights and remedies provided in this Agreement are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.

SECTION 15. Continuing Security Interest; Transfer of Loans; Termination and Release.

(a) This Agreement shall create a continuing security interest in the Collateral and shall (i) remain in full force and effect until the payment in full of the Secured Obligations and termination of all commitments to extend credit under the Credit Agreement, (ii) be binding upon Company and its successors and assigns, and (iii) inure, together with the rights and remedies of Security Agent and each Finance Party hereunder, to the benefit of Security Agent and each Finance Party and its successors, transferees and assigns. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing clause (iii), Security Agent and each Finance Party may assign or otherwise transfer any loans held by it to any other Person, and such other Person shall thereupon become vested with all the benefits in respect thereof granted to Security Agent and each Finance Party herein or otherwise.

(b) Upon the payment in full of all Secured Obligations and termination of all commitments to extend credit under the Credit Agreement, the security interest granted hereby shall terminate and all rights to the Collateral shall automatically revert to Company. Upon any such termination Security Agent will, at Company's expense, execute and deliver to Company such documents as Company shall reasonably request to evidence such termination.
