(iii) Swing Line Lender shall make the amount of its Swing Line Loan available to Administrative Agent not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the applicable Credit Date by wire transfer of same day funds in Dollars, at the Principal Office designated by Administrative Agent. Except as provided herein, upon satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent specified herein, Administrative

 

-43-


Agent shall make the proceeds of such Swing Line Loans available to Borrower on the applicable Credit Date by causing an amount of same day funds in Dollars equal to the proceeds of all such Swing Line Loans received by Administrative Agent from Swing Line Lender to be credited to the account of Borrower at the Principal Office designated by Administrative Agent, or to such other account as may be designated in writing to Administrative Agent by Borrower.

(iv) With respect to any Swing Line Loans which have not been voluntarily prepaid by Borrower pursuant to Section 2.13, Swing Line Lender may at any time in its sole and absolute discretion, deliver to Administrative Agent (with a copy to Borrower), no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least one Business Day in advance of the proposed Credit Date, a notice (which shall be deemed to be a Funding Notice given by Borrower) requesting that each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans to Borrower on such Credit Date in an amount equal to the amount of such Swing Line Loans (the "Refunded Swing Line Loans") outstanding on the date such notice is given which Swing Line Lender requests Lenders to prepay. Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, (1) the proceeds of such Revolving Loans made by the Lenders other than Swing Line Lender shall be immediately delivered by Administrative Agent to Swing Line Lender (and not to Borrower) and applied to repay a corresponding portion of the Refunded Swing Line Loans and (2) on the day such Revolving Loans are made, Swing Line Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Refunded Swing Line Loans (determined by reference to Swing Line Lender's Revolving Commitment, if any) shall be deemed to be paid with the proceeds of a Revolving Loan made by Swing Line Lender to Borrower, and such portion of the Swing Line Loans deemed to be so paid shall no longer be outstanding as Swing Line Loans and shall no longer be due under the Swing Line Note of Swing Line Lender but shall instead constitute part of Swing Line Lender's outstanding Revolving Loans to Borrower and shall be due under the Revolving Loan Note issued by Borrower to Swing Line Lender. Borrower hereby authorizes Administrative Agent and Swing Line Lender to charge Borrower's accounts with Administrative Agent and Swing Line Lender (up to the amount available in each such account) in order to immediately pay Swing Line Lender the amount of the Refunded Swing Line Loans to the extent of the proceeds of such Revolving Loans made by Lenders, including the Revolving Loans deemed to be made by Swing Line Lender, are not sufficient to repay in full the Refunded Swing Line Loans. If any portion of any such amount paid (or deemed to be paid) to Swing Line Lender should be recovered by or on behalf of Borrower from Swing Line Lender in bankruptcy, by assignment for the benefit of creditors or otherwise, the loss of the amount so recovered shall be ratably shared among all Lenders in the manner contemplated by Section 2.17.

(v) If for any reason Revolving Loans are not made pursuant to Section 2.3(b)(iv) in an amount sufficient to repay any amounts owed to Swing Line Lender in respect of any outstanding Swing Line Loans on or before the third Business Day after demand for payment thereof by Swing Line Lender, each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall be deemed to, and hereby agrees to, have purchased a participation in such outstanding Swing Line Loans, and in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the applicable unpaid amount together with accrued interest thereon. Upon one Business Day's notice from Swing Line Lender, each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall deliver to Swing Line Lender an amount equal to its respective participation in the applicable unpaid amount in same day funds at the Principal Office of Swing Line Lender. In order to evidence such participation each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment agrees to enter into a participation agreement at the request of Swing Line Lender in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Swing Line Lender. In the event any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment fails to make available to Swing Line Lender the amount of such Lender's participation as provided in this paragraph, Swing Line Lender shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon for three Business Days at the rate customarily used by Swing Line Lender for the correction of errors among banks and thereafter at the Base Rate, as applicable.

 

-44-


(vi) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, (1) each Lender's obligation to make Revolving Loans for the purpose of repaying any Refunded Swing Line Loans pursuant to the second preceding paragraph and each Lender's obligation to purchase a participation in any unpaid Swing Line Loans pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against Swing Line Lender, any Credit Party or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the occurrence or continuation of a Default or Event of Default; (C) any adverse change in the business, operations, properties, assets, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of any Credit Party; (D) any breach of this Agreement or any other Credit Document by any party thereto; or (E) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided that such obligations of each Lender are subject to the condition that Swing Line Lender had not received prior notice from Borrower or the Requisite Lenders that any of the conditions under Section 3.3 to the making of the applicable Refunded Swing Line Loans or other unpaid Swing Line Loans, were not satisfied at the time such Refunded Swing Line Loans or unpaid Swing Line Loans were made; and (2) Swing Line Lender shall not be obligated to make any Swing Line Loans (A) if it has elected not to do so after the occurrence and during the continuation of a Default or Event of Default, (B) it does not in good faith believe that all conditions under Section 3.3 to the making of such Swing Line Loan have been satisfied or waived by the Requisite Lenders or (C) at a time when any Lender is a Defaulting Lender unless Swing Line Lender has entered into arrangements reasonably satisfactory to it and Borrower to eliminate Swing Line Lender's risk with respect to the Defaulting Lender's participation in such Swing Ling Loan, including by cash collateralizing such Defaulting Lender's Pro Rata Share of the outstanding Swing Line Loans.

(c) Resignation and Removal of Swing Line Lender. Swing Line Lender may resign as Swing Line Lender upon 30 days' prior written notice to Administrative Agent, Lenders and Borrower. Swing Line Lender may be replaced at any time by written agreement among Borrower, Administrative Agent, the replaced Swing Line Lender (provided that no consent will be required if the replaced Swing Line Lender has no Swing Line Loans outstanding) and the successor Swing Line Lender. Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any such replacement of Swing Line Lender. At the time any such replacement or resignation shall become effective, (i) Borrower shall prepay any outstanding Swing Line Loans made by the resigning or removed Swing Line Lender, (ii) upon such prepayment, the resigning or removed Swing Line Lender shall surrender any Swing Line Note held by it to Borrower for cancellation, and (iii) Borrower shall issue, if so requested by the successor Swing Line Lender, a new Swing Line Note to the successor Swing Line Lender, in the principal amount of the Swing Line Sublimit then in effect and with other appropriate insertions. From and after the effective date of any such replacement or resignation, (x) any successor Swing Line Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of a Swing Line Lender under this Agreement with respect to Swing Line Loans made thereafter and (y) references herein to the term "Swing Line Lender" shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Swing Line Lender, or to such successor and all previous Swing Line Lenders, as the context shall require.

2.4 Issuance of Letters of Credit and Purchase of Participations Therein.

(a) Letters of Credit. During the Revolving Commitment Period, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, Issuing Bank agrees to issue Letters of Credit for the account of Borrower; provided, (i) each Letter of Credit shall be denominated in Dollars; (ii) the stated amount of each Letter of Credit shall not be less than $250,000 or such lesser amount as is acceptable to Issuing Bank; (iii) after giving effect to such issuance, in no event shall the Total Utilization of Revolving Commitments exceed the Revolving Commitments then in effect; (iv) after giving effect to such issuance, in no event shall the Letter of Credit Usage exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit then in effect; (v) in no event shall any standby Letter of Credit have an expiration date later than the earlier of (1) the Revolving Commitment Termination Date and (2) the date which is one year from the date of issuance of such standby Letter of Credit; (vi) in

 

-45-


no event shall any Letter of Credit have an expiration date later than the earlier of (1) the Revolving Commitment Termination Date and (2) the date which is one year from the date of issuance of such commercial Letter of Credit; and (vii) Issuing Bank shall be under no obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of Issuing Bank applicable to letters of credit generally and not solely to letters of credit issuable to Borrower. Subject to the foregoing, Issuing Bank may agree that a standby Letter of Credit will automatically be extended for one or more successive periods not to exceed one year each, unless Issuing Bank elects not to extend for any such additional period, and so notifies the beneficiary thereof 30 days in advance that such standby Letter of Credit will not be so extended; provided that Issuing Bank shall not extend any such Letter of Credit if it has received written notice that an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at the time Issuing Bank must elect to allow such extension; provided, further, that if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, Issuing Bank shall not be required to issue any Letter of Credit unless Issuing Bank has entered into arrangements reasonably satisfactory to it and Borrower to eliminate Issuing Bank's risk with respect to the participation in Letters of Credit of the Defaulting Lender, including by cash collateralizing such Defaulting Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit Usage.

(b) Notice of Issuance. Subject to Section 3.3(b), whenever Borrower desires the issuance, amendment or modification of a Letter of Credit, it shall deliver to Administrative Agent an Issuance Notice no later than 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least three Business Days (in the case of standby letters of credit) or five Business Days (in the case of commercial letters of credit), or in each case such shorter period as may be agreed to by Issuing Bank in any particular instance, in advance of the proposed date of issuance, amendment or modification. Upon satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Section 3.3, Issuing Bank shall issue, amend or modify the requested Letter of Credit only in accordance with Issuing Bank's standard operating procedures. Upon the issuance of any Letter of Credit or amendment or modification to a Letter of Credit, Issuing Bank shall promptly notify each Lender with a Revolving Commitment of such issuance, which notice shall be accompanied by a copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment or modification to a Letter of Credit and the amount of such Lender's respective participation in such Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 2.4(e).

(c) Responsibility of Issuing Bank with Respect to Requests for Drawings and Payments. In determining whether to honor any drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, Issuing Bank shall be responsible only to examine the documents delivered under such Letter of Credit with reasonable care so as to ascertain whether they appear on their face to be in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit. As between Borrower and Issuing Bank, Borrower assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit issued by Issuing Bank, by the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, Issuing Bank shall not be responsible for: (i) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for and issuance of any such Letter of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged; (ii) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any such Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) failure of the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit to comply fully with any conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any such Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; or (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of Issuing Bank, including any Governmental Acts; none of the above shall affect or impair, or prevent the vesting of, any of Issuing Bank's rights or powers hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing and in furtherance thereof, any action

 

-46-


taken or omitted by Issuing Bank under or in connection with the Letters of Credit or any documents and certificates delivered thereunder, if taken or omitted in good faith, shall not give rise to any liability on the part of Issuing Bank to Borrower. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.4(c), Borrower shall retain any and all rights it may have against Issuing Bank for any liability arising solely out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Issuing Bank.

(d) Reimbursement by Borrower of Amounts Drawn or Paid Under Letters of Credit. In the event Issuing Bank has determined to honor a drawing under a Letter of Credit, it shall immediately notify Borrower and Administrative Agent, and Borrower shall reimburse Issuing Bank on or before the Business Day immediately following the date on which Borrower was notified by Issuing Bank that such drawing was honored (the "Reimbursement Date") in an amount in Dollars and in same day funds equal to the amount of such honored drawing; provided that anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, (i) unless Borrower shall have notified Administrative Agent and Issuing Bank prior to 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the date such drawing is honored that Borrower intends to reimburse Issuing Bank for the amount of such honored drawing with funds other than the proceeds of Revolving Loans, Borrower shall be deemed to have given a timely Funding Notice to Administrative Agent requesting Lenders with Revolving Commitments to make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans on the Reimbursement Date in an amount in Dollars equal to the amount of such honored drawing, and (ii) subject to satisfaction or waiver of the conditions specified in Section 3.3, Lenders with Revolving Commitments shall, on the Reimbursement Date, make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans in the amount of such honored drawing, the proceeds of which shall be applied directly by Administrative Agent to reimburse Issuing Bank for the amount of such honored drawing; and provided, further, that if for any reason proceeds of Revolving Loans are not received by Issuing Bank on the Reimbursement Date in an amount equal to the amount of such honored drawing, Borrower shall reimburse Issuing Bank, on demand, in an amount in same day funds equal to the excess of the amount of such honored drawing over the aggregate amount of proceeds of such Revolving Loans, if any, which are so received. Nothing in this Section 2.4(d) shall be deemed to relieve any Lender with a Revolving Commitment from its obligation to make Revolving Loans on the terms and conditions set forth herein, and Borrower shall retain any and all rights it may have against any such Lender resulting from the failure of such Lender to make such Revolving Loans under this Section 2.4(d).

(e) Lenders' Purchase of Participations in Letters of Credit. Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Lender having a Revolving Commitment shall be deemed to have purchased, and hereby agrees to irrevocably purchase, from Issuing Bank a participation in such Letter of Credit and any drawings honored thereunder in an amount equal to such Lender's Pro Rata Share (with respect to the Revolving Commitments) of the maximum amount which is or at any time may become available to be drawn thereunder. In the event that Borrower shall fail for any reason to reimburse Issuing Bank as provided in Section 2.4(d), Issuing Bank shall promptly notify Administrative Agent of the unreimbursed amount of such honored drawing and Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender with a Revolving Commitment of such Lender's respective participation therein based on such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Commitments. Each Lender with a Revolving Commitment shall make available to Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank an amount equal to its respective participation, in Dollars and in same day funds, at the office of Administrative Agent specified in such notice, not later than 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the first business day (under the laws of the jurisdiction in which such office of Issuing Bank is located) after the date notified by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Issuing Bank. In the event that any Lender with a Revolving Commitment fails to make available to Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank on such business day the amount of such Lender's participation in such Letter of Credit as provided in this Section 2.4(e), Issuing Bank (acting through the Administrative Agent) shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon for three Business Days at the rate customarily used by Issuing Bank for the correction of errors among banks and thereafter

 

-47-


at the Base Rate. Nothing in this Section 2.4(e) shall be deemed to prejudice the right of any Lender with a Revolving Commitment to recover from Issuing Bank any amounts made available by such Lender to Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section in the event that the payment with respect to a Letter of Credit in respect of which payment was made by such Lender constituted gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of Issuing Bank. In the event Issuing Bank (acting through the Administrative Agent) shall have been reimbursed by other Lenders pursuant to this Section 2.4(e) for all or any portion of any drawing honored by Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank (acting through the Administrative Agent) shall distribute to each Lender which has paid all amounts payable by it under this Section 2.4(e) with respect to such honored drawing such Lender's Pro Rata Share of all payments subsequently received by Issuing Bank from Borrower in reimbursement of such honored drawing when such payments are received. Any such distribution shall be made to a Lender at its primary address set forth below its name on Appendix B or at such other address as such Lender may request.

(f) Obligations Absolute. The obligation of Borrower to reimburse Issuing Bank for drawings honored under the Letters of Credit issued by it and to repay any Revolving Loans made by Lenders pursuant to Section 2.4(d) and the obligations of Lenders under Section 2.4(e) shall be unconditional and irrevocable and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms hereof under all circumstances including any of the following circumstances: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit; (ii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right which Borrower or any Lender may have at any time against a beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Persons for whom any such transferee may be acting), Issuing Bank, Lender or any other Person or, in the case of a Lender, against Borrower, whether in connection herewith, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transaction (including any underlying transaction between Borrower or one of its Subsidiaries and the beneficiary for which any Letter of Credit was procured); (iii) any draft or other document presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; (iv) payment by Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document which does not substantially comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; (v) any adverse change in the business, operations, properties, assets, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries; (vi) any breach hereof or any other Credit Document by any party thereto; (vii) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; or (viii) the fact that an Event of Default or a Default shall have occurred and be continuing; provided, in each case, that payment by Issuing Bank under the applicable Letter of Credit shall not have constituted gross negligence or willful misconduct of Issuing Bank under the circumstances in question.

(g) Indemnification. Without duplication of any obligation of Borrower under Section 10.2 or 10.3, in addition to amounts payable as provided herein, Borrower hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, pay and save harmless Issuing Bank from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, charges and expenses (including reasonable fees, expenses and disbursements of counsel and allocated costs of internal counsel) which Issuing Bank may incur or be subject to as a consequence, direct or indirect, of (i) the issuance of any Letter of Credit by Issuing Bank, other than as a result of (1) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Issuing Bank or (2) the wrongful dishonor by Issuing Bank of a proper demand for payment made under any Letter of Credit issued by it, or (ii) the failure of Issuing Bank to honor a drawing under any such Letter of Credit as a result of any Governmental Act, other than any Governmental Act resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Issuing Bank.

(h) Resignation and Removal of Issuing Bank. An Issuing Bank may resign as Issuing Bank upon 60 days prior written notice to Administrative Agent, Lenders and Borrower. An Issuing Bank may be replaced at any time by written agreement among Borrower, Administrative Agent, the replaced Issuing Bank (provided that no consent will be required if the replaced Issuing Bank has no Letters of Credit or reimbursement Obligations with respect thereto outstanding) and the successor Issuing Bank.

 

-48-


Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any such replacement of the Issuing Bank. At the time any such replacement or resignation shall become effective, Borrower shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Issuing Bank. From and after the effective date of any such replacement or resignation, (i) any successor Issuing Bank shall have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term "Issuing Bank" shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Issuing Bank, or to such successor and all previous Issuing Banks, as the context shall require. After the replacement or resignation of an Issuing Bank hereunder, the replaced Issuing Bank shall remain a party hereto to the extent that Letters of Credit issued by it remain outstanding and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such replacement or resignation, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.

2.5 Pro Rata Shares; Availability of Funds.

(a) Pro Rata Shares. All Loans shall be made, and all participations shall be purchased, by Lenders simultaneously and proportionately to their respective Pro Rata Shares, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in such other Lender's obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder or purchase a participation required hereby nor shall any Term Loan Commitment or Revolving Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of a default by any other Lender in such other Lender's obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder or purchase a participation required hereby.

(b) Availability of Funds. Unless Administrative Agent shall have been notified by any Lender prior to the applicable Credit Date that such Lender does not intend to make available to Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender's Loan requested on such Credit Date, Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such amount available to Administrative Agent on such Credit Date and Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, but shall not be obligated to, make available to Borrower a corresponding amount on such Credit Date. If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to Administrative Agent by such Lender, Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from such Credit Date until the date such amount is paid to Administrative Agent, at the customary rate set by Administrative Agent for the correction of errors among banks for three Business Days and thereafter at the Base Rate. If such Lender does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith upon Administrative Agent's demand therefor, Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Borrower and Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to Administrative Agent together with interest thereon, for each day from such Credit Date until the date such amount is paid to Administrative Agent, at the rate payable hereunder for Base Rate Loans for such Class of Loans. Nothing in this Section 2.5(b) shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to fulfill its Term Loan Commitments and Revolving Commitments hereunder or to prejudice any rights that Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.

2.6 Use of Proceeds.

(a) The proceeds of the Loans shall be used as follows:

(i) the proceeds of the Revolving Loans, Swing Line Loans and Letters of Credit made after the Third Restatement Date shall be applied by Borrower, as applicable, to (A) finance a portion of any Acquisition and pay related fees and expenses, (B) fund permitted capital expenditures and permitted acquisitions, (C) provide for the ongoing working capital requirements of Borrower and its Subsidiaries and (D) provide for general corporate purposes of Borrower and its Subsidiaries; and

 

-49-


(ii) the proceeds of the Tranche B Term Loans made on the Third Restatement Date shall be applied by Borrower, as applicable, to (A) repay a portion of the Revolving Loans outstanding as of the Third Restatement Date (but not to permanently reduce Revolving Commitments with respect thereto), (B) fund permitted capital expenditures and permitted acquisitions, (C) provide for general corporate purposes of Borrower and its Subsidiaries and (D) pay all fees and expenses in connection with the incurrence of the Tranche B Term Loans and the repayment of Revolving Loans (including fees and expenses in connection with the amendment and restatement of the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement).

(b) No portion of the proceeds of any Credit Extension shall be used in any manner that causes or might cause such Credit Extension or the application of such proceeds to violate Regulation T, Regulation U or Regulation X of the Board of Governors or any other regulation thereof.

2.7 Evidence of Debt; Register; Lenders' Books and Records; Notes.

(a) Lenders' Evidence of Debt. Each Lender shall maintain on its internal records an account or accounts evidencing the Obligations of Borrower to such Lender, including the amounts of the Loans made by it and each repayment and prepayment in respect thereof. Any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Borrower, absent manifest error; provided, that the failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender's Revolving Commitments or Borrower's Obligations in respect of any applicable Loans; and provided further that, in the event of any inconsistency between the Register and any Lender's records, the recordations in the Register shall govern.

(b) Register. Administrative Agent (or its agent or sub-agent appointed by it) shall maintain at the Principal Office designated by Administrative Agent a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of Lenders and the Revolving Commitments and Loans of each Lender from time to time (the "Register"). The Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower or any Lender (with respect to any entry relating to such Lender's Loans) at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. Administrative Agent shall record, or shall cause to be recorded, in the Register the Revolving Commitments and the Loans in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.6, and each repayment or prepayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans, and any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Borrower and each Lender, absent manifest error; provided that failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender's Revolving Commitments or Borrower's Obligations in respect of any Loan. Borrower hereby designates Administrative Agent to serve as Borrower's agent solely for purposes of maintaining the Register as provided in this Section 2.7, and Borrower hereby agrees that, to the extent Administrative Agent serves in such capacity, Administrative Agent and its officers, directors, employees, agents, sub-agents and affiliates shall constitute "Indemnitees."

(c) Notes. If so requested by any Lender by written notice to Borrower (with a copy to Administrative Agent) at least two Business Days prior to the Third Restatement Date, or at any time thereafter, Borrower shall execute and deliver to such Lender (and/or, if applicable and if so specified in such notice, to any Person who is an assignee of such Lender pursuant to Section 10.6) on the Third Restatement Date (or, if such notice is delivered after the Third Restatement Date, as promptly as practicable after Borrower's receipt of such notice) a Note or Notes to evidence such Lender's Tranche A Term Loans, Tranche B Term Loans, New Term Loans, Revolving Loan or Swing Line Loan, as the case may be.

 

-50-


2.8 Interest on Loans.

(a) Except as otherwise set forth herein, each Class of Loans shall bear interest on the unpaid principal amount thereof from the date made through repayment (whether by acceleration or otherwise) thereof as follows:

(i) in the case of Tranche A Term Loans and Revolving Loans:


   

if a Base Rate Loan, at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin; or


   

if a Eurodollar Rate Loan, at the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate plus the Applicable Margin; and

(ii) in the case of Swing Line Loans, at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin; and

(iii) in the case of Tranche B Loans:


   

if a Base Rate Loan, at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin; or


   

if a Eurodollar Rate Loan, at the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate plus the Applicable Margin.

(b) The basis for determining the rate of interest with respect to any Loan (except a Swing Line Loan which can be made and maintained as a Base Rate Loan only), and the Interest Period with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loan, shall be selected by Borrower and notified to Administrative Agent and Lenders pursuant to the applicable Funding Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice, as the case may be; provided that, until the date on which Administrative Agent notifies Borrower that the primary syndication of the Loans and Revolving Commitments has been completed, as determined by Administrative Agent (but in no event to exceed 90 days after the Third Restatement Date), the Tranche B Term Loans shall be maintained as either (1) Eurodollar Rate Loans having an Interest Period of no longer than three months or (2) Base Rate Loans. If on any day a Loan is outstanding with respect to which a Funding Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice has not been delivered to Administrative Agent in accordance with the terms hereof specifying the applicable basis for determining the rate of interest, then for that day such Loan shall be a Base Rate Loan.

(c) In connection with Eurodollar Rate Loans there shall be no more than seven (7) Interest Periods outstanding at any time. In the event Borrower fails to specify between a Base Rate Loan or a Eurodollar Rate Loan in the applicable Funding Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice, such Loan (if outstanding as a Eurodollar Rate Loan) will be automatically converted into a Base Rate Loan on the last day of then current Interest Period for such Loan (or if outstanding as a Base Rate Loan will remain as, or (if not then outstanding) will be made as, a Base Rate Loan). In the event Borrower fails to specify an Interest Period for any Eurodollar Rate Loan in the applicable Funding Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice, Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month. As soon as practicable after 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on each Interest Rate Determination Date, Administrative Agent shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final, conclusive and binding upon all parties) the interest rate that shall apply to the Eurodollar Rate Loans for which an interest rate is then being determined for the applicable Interest Period and shall promptly give notice thereof (in writing or by telephone confirmed in writing) to Borrower and each Lender.

 

-51-


(d) Interest payable pursuant to Section 2.8(a) shall be computed (i) in the case of Base Rate Loans (other than Base Rate Loans for which the Base Rate has been calculated pursuant to the third sentence of the definition thereof), on the basis of a 365 day or 366 day year, as the case may be, and (ii) in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans and Base Rate Loans for which the Base Rate has been calculated pursuant to the third sentence of the definition thereof, on the basis of a 360 day year, in each case for the actual number of days elapsed in the period during which it accrues. In computing interest on any Loan, the date of the making of such Loan or the first day of an Interest Period applicable to such Loan or, with respect to a Term Loan, the last Interest Payment Date with respect to such Term Loan or, with respect to a Base Rate Loan being converted from a Eurodollar Rate Loan, the date of conversion of such Eurodollar Rate Loan to such Base Rate Loan shall be included, and the date of payment of such Loan or the expiration date of an Interest Period applicable to such Loan or, with respect to a Base Rate Loan being converted to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, the date of conversion of such Base Rate Loan to such Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be excluded; provided that, if a Loan is repaid on the same day on which it is made, one day's interest shall be paid on that Loan.

(e) Except as otherwise set forth herein, interest on each Loan (i) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date with respect to interest accrued on and to each such payment date; (ii) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears upon any prepayment of that Loan, whether voluntary or mandatory, to the extent accrued on the amount being prepaid; and (iii) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears at maturity of the Loans, including final maturity of the Loans; provided, however, with respect to any voluntary prepayment of a Revolving Loan that is a Base Rate Loan, accrued interest shall instead be payable on the applicable Interest Payment Date.

(f) Borrower agrees to pay to Issuing Bank, with respect to drawings honored under any Letter of Credit, interest on the amount paid by Issuing Bank in respect of each such honored drawing from the date such drawing is honored to but excluding the date such amount is reimbursed by or on behalf of Borrower at a rate equal to (i) for the period from the date such drawing is honored to but excluding the applicable Reimbursement Date, the rate of interest otherwise payable hereunder with respect to Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans, and (ii) thereafter, the rate of interest required pursuant to Section 2.10.

(g) Interest payable pursuant to Section 2.8(f) shall be computed on the basis of a 365/366 day year for the actual number of days elapsed in the period during which it accrues, and shall be payable on demand or, if no demand is made, on the date on which the related drawing under a Letter of Credit is reimbursed in full. Promptly upon receipt by Issuing Bank of any payment of interest pursuant to Section 2.8(g), Issuing Bank shall distribute to each Lender, out of the interest received by Issuing Bank in respect of the period from the date such drawing is honored to but excluding the date on which Issuing Bank is reimbursed for the amount of such drawing (including any such reimbursement out of the proceeds of any Revolving Loans), the amount that such Lender would have been entitled to receive in respect of the letter of credit fee that would have been payable in respect of such Letter of Credit for such period if no drawing had been honored under such Letter of Credit. In the event Issuing Bank shall have been reimbursed by Lenders for all or any portion of such honored drawing, Issuing Bank shall distribute to each Lender which has paid all amounts payable by it under Section 2.4(e) with respect to such honored drawing such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any interest received by Issuing Bank in respect of that portion of such honored drawing so reimbursed by Lenders for the period from the date on which Issuing Bank was so reimbursed by Lenders to but excluding the date on which such portion of such honored drawing is reimbursed by Borrower.

2.9 Conversion/Continuation.

(a) Subject to Section 2.18 and so long as no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and then be continuing, Borrower shall have the option:

(i) to convert at any time all or any part of any Term Loan or Revolving Loan equal to $5,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess of that amount from one Type of Loan to another Type of Loan; provided that a Eurodollar Rate Loan may only be converted on the expiration of the Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan unless Borrower shall pay all amounts due under Section 2.18 in connection with any such conversion;

(ii) upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to any Eurodollar Rate Loan, to continue all or any portion of such Loan equal to $5,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess of that amount as a Eurodollar Rate Loan;

(b) Subject to Section 3.3(b), Borrower shall deliver a Conversion/Continuation Notice to Administrative Agent no later than 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) at least one Business Day in advance of the proposed conversion date (in the case of a conversion to a Base Rate Loan), at least three Business Days in advance of the proposed conversion/continuation date (in the case of a conversion to, or a continuation of, a Eurodollar Rate Loan).

2.10 Default Interest. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, any overdue amounts shall thereafter bear interest (including post petition interest in any proceeding under Insolvency Laws) payable on demand at a rate which is 2% per annum in excess of the interest rate otherwise payable hereunder for Base Rate Loans (or, in the case of any fees and other amounts, at a rate which is 2% per annum in excess of the interest rate otherwise payable hereunder for Base Rate Loans). Payment or acceptance of the increased rates of interest provided for in this Section 2.10 is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Administrative Agent or any Lender.

2.11 Fees.

(a) Borrower agrees to pay to Lenders having Revolving Exposure (for purposes of clarity, excluding the Issuing Bank, in its capacity as such):

(i) commitment fees accruing at 0.50% per annum on the average of the daily difference between (a) the Revolving Commitments, and (b) the aggregate principal amount of (x) all outstanding Revolving Loans (for the avoidance of doubt, excluding Swing Line Loans) plus (y) the Letter of Credit Usage; and

(ii) letter of credit fees accruing at the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans that are Eurodollar Rate Loans on the average aggregate daily maximum amount available to be drawn under all such Letters of Credit (regardless of whether any conditions for drawing could then be met and determined as of the close of business on any date of determination).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any commitment fee which accrued with respect to the Revolving Commitment of a Defaulting Lender during the period prior to the time such Lender became a Defaulting Lender and unpaid at such time shall not be payable by Borrower so long as such Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender except to the extent that such commitment fee shall otherwise have been due and payable by Borrower prior to such time; and provided, further, that no such commitment fee shall accrue on the Revolving Commitment of a Defaulting Lender so long as such Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender. All fees referred to in this Section 2.11(a) shall be paid to Administrative Agent at its Principal Office and upon receipt, Administrative Agent shall promptly distribute to each Lender its Pro Rata Share thereof.

 

-53-


(b) Borrower agrees to pay directly to Issuing Bank, for its own account, the following fees:

(i) a fronting fee accruing at 0.25% per annum on the average aggregate daily maximum amount available to be drawn under all Letters of Credit (determined as of the close of business on any date of determination); and

(ii) such documentary and processing charges for any issuance, amendment, transfer or payment of a Letter of Credit as are in accordance with Issuing Bank's standard schedule for such charges and as in effect at the time of such issuance, amendment, transfer or payment, as the case may be.

(c) Borrower agrees to pay on the Third Restatement Date to Administrative Agent, for the account of each Lender party to this Agreement as a Lender on Third Restatement Date, as fee compensation for the funding of such Lender's Tranche B Term Loans, a closing fee in an amount equal to the percentage of the stated principal amount of such Lender's Tranche B Term Loans set forth in Schedule 2.11(c) payable to such Lender from the proceeds of its Tranche B Term Loan as and when funded on the Third Restatement Date. Such closing fee will be in all respects fully earned, due and payable on the Third Restatement Date and non-refundable and non-creditable thereafter.

(d) All fees referred to in Section 2.11(a) and 2.11(b)(i) shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed and shall be payable quarterly in arrears on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 of each year during the Revolving Commitment Period, commencing on March 31, 2012, and on the Revolving Commitment Termination Date.

(e) In addition to any of the foregoing fees, Borrower agrees to pay to Agents such other fees in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon.

2.12 Scheduled Payments/Commitment Reductions.

(a) Scheduled Installments. The principal amounts of the Tranche A Term Loans and Tranche B Term Loans shall be repaid in consecutive quarterly installments (each, an "Installment") equal to the percentage set forth below of, initially, an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of Tranche A Term Loans and Tranche B Term Loans outstanding on the Third Restatement Date on the four quarterly scheduled Interest Payment Dates (each such date, an "Installment Date"), commencing March 31, 2012:

Upon the giving of any such notice, the principal amount of the Loans specified in such notice shall become due and payable on the prepayment date specified therein; provided that a notice of voluntary prepayment may state that such notice is conditional upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or the receipt of the proceeds from the issuance of other Indebtedness or upon the closing of an acquisition transaction, in which case such notice of prepayment may be revoked by Borrower (by notice to Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date) if such condition is not satisfied.

(ii) Borrower's notice to Administrative Agent shall designate the date (which shall be a Business Day) of such termination or reduction and the amount of any partial reduction, and such termination or reduction of the Revolving Commitments shall be effective on the date specified in Borrower's

 

-56-


notice and shall reduce the Revolving Commitment of each Lender proportionately to its Pro Rata Share thereof; provided that a notice of termination or partial reduction may state that such notice is conditional upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or the receipt of the proceeds from the issuance of other Indebtedness or upon the closing of an acquisition transaction, in which case such notice of termination or partial reduction may be revoked by Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date) if such condition is not satisfied.

No later than three Business Days following the date of receipt by Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries of any Cash proceeds from a capital contribution to, or the issuance of any Equity Interests of, Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries (other than (i) pursuant to any employee stock or stock option compensation plan or any employment agreement, (ii) the receipt of a capital contribution from, or the issuance of Equity Interests to, Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries and (iii) the issuance of directors' qualifying shares or of other nominal amounts of other Equity Interests that are required to be held by specified Persons under Applicable Law), Borrower shall prepay the Loans as set forth in Section 2.15(b) in an aggregate amount equal to 50% of such proceeds, in each case, net of underwriting discounts and commissions and other reasonable costs and expenses associated therewith, including reasonable legal fees and expenses; provided that if, as of the end of the most recent four consecutive Fiscal Quarter period (determined for any such period by reference to the Compliance Certificate delivered pursuant to Section 5.1(c) calculating the Leverage Ratio as of the last day of such four consecutive Fiscal Quarter period), the Leverage Ratio determined on a Pro Forma Basis shall be 3.25:1.00 or less, Borrower shall only be required to make prepayments otherwise required hereby in an amount equal to 25% of such proceeds.

(d) Issuance of Debt. No later than two Business Days following the date of receipt by Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries of any Cash proceeds from the incurrence of any Indebtedness of Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries (other than with respect to any Indebtedness permitted to be incurred pursuant to Section 6.1), Borrower shall prepay the Loans as set forth in Section 2.15(b) in an aggregate amount equal to 100% of such proceeds, net of underwriting discounts and commissions and other reasonable costs and expenses associated therewith, including reasonable legal fees and expenses.

(f) Revolving Loans and Swing Line Loans. (i) Borrower shall from time to time prepay first, the Swing Line Loans, and second, the Revolving Loans to the extent necessary so that the Total Utilization of Revolving Commitments shall not at any time exceed the Revolving Commitments then in effect.

(g) Prepayment Certificate. Concurrently with any prepayment of the Loans pursuant to Sections 2.14(a) through 2.14(e), Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent a certificate of an Authorized Officer demonstrating the calculation of the amount of the applicable net proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow, as the case may be. In the event that Borrower shall subsequently determine that the actual amount received exceeded the amount set forth in such certificate, Borrower shall promptly make an additional prepayment of the Loans in an amount equal to such excess, and Borrower shall concurrently therewith deliver to Administrative Agent a certificate of an Authorized Officer demonstrating the derivation of such excess.

2.15 Application of Prepayments.

(a) Application of Voluntary Prepayments by Type of Loans. Any prepayment of any Loan pursuant to Section 2.13(a) shall be applied as specified by Borrower in the applicable notice of prepayment; provided that, in the event Borrower fails to specify the Loans to which any such prepayment shall be applied, such prepayment shall be applied as follows:

first, to repay outstanding Swing Line Loans to the full extent thereof;

second, to repay outstanding Revolving Loans to the full extent thereof; and

third, to prepay the Term Loans on a pro rata basis (in accordance with the respective outstanding principal amounts thereof); and further applied on a pro rata basis to reduce the remaining scheduled Installments of principal of the Tranche A Term Loans, Tranche B Term Loans and the New Term Loans (if any).

(b) Application of Mandatory Prepayments by Type of Loans. Any amount required to be paid pursuant to Sections 2.14(a) through 2.14(e) shall be applied as follows:

first, to prepay Term Loans on a pro rata basis (in accordance with the respective outstanding principal amounts thereof) and further applied on a pro rata basis to reduce the remaining scheduled Installments of principal of the Tranche A Term Loans, Tranche B Term Loans and the New Term Loans (if any);

 

-58-


second, to prepay the Swing Line Loans to the full extent thereof;

third, to prepay the Revolving Loans to the full extent thereof;

fourth, to prepay outstanding reimbursement obligations with respect to Letters of Credit;

fifth, to cash collateralize Letters of Credit; and

(d) Waivable Mandatory Prepayment. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, so long as any Tranche A Term Loans are outstanding, in the event Borrower is required to make any mandatory prepayment (a "Waivable Mandatory Prepayment") of the Tranche B Term Loans, not less than five Business Days prior to the date (the "Required Prepayment Date") on which Borrower is required to make such Waivable Mandatory Prepayment, Borrower shall notify Administrative Agent of the amount of such prepayment, and Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter notify each Lender holding an outstanding Tranche B Term Loan of the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of such Waivable Mandatory Prepayment and such Lender's option to refuse such amount. Each such Lender may exercise such option by giving written notice to Borrower and Administrative Agent of its election to do so on or before the third Business Day prior to the Required Prepayment Date (it being understood that any Lender which does not notify Borrower and Administrative Agent of its election to exercise such option on or before the third Business Day prior to the Required Prepayment Date shall be deemed to have elected, as of such date, not to exercise such option). On the Required Prepayment Date, Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent the amount of the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment, which amount shall be applied (i) in an amount equal to that portion of the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment payable to those Lenders that have elected not to exercise such option, to prepay the Tranche B Term Loans of such Lenders (which prepayment shall be applied to the scheduled Installments of principal of the Tranche B Term Loans in accordance with Section 2.15(b)), and (ii) in an amount equal to that portion of the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment otherwise payable to those Lenders that have elected to exercise such option, to prepay the Tranche A Term Loans (which prepayment shall be further applied to the scheduled installments of principal of the Tranche A Term Loans in accordance with Section 2.15(b)), with any excess after such prepayment of the Tranche A Term Loans being further applied in accordance with clauses second through sixth of Section 2.15(b).

2.16 General Provisions Regarding Payments.

(a) All payments by Borrower of principal, interest, fees and other Obligations shall be made in Dollars in same day funds, without defense, recoupment, set-off or counterclaim, free of any restriction or condition, and delivered to Administrative Agent not later than (x) 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date due at the Principal Office designated by Administrative Agent for the account of Lenders; for purposes of computing interest and fees, funds received by Administrative Agent after that time on such due date shall be deemed to have been paid by Borrower on the next succeeding Business Day.

 

-59-


(b) All payments in respect of the principal amount of any Loan (other than voluntary prepayments of Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans) shall be accompanied by payment of accrued interest on the principal amount being repaid or prepaid, and all such payments (and, in any event, any payments in respect of any Loan on a date when interest is due and payable with respect to such Loan) shall be applied to the payment of interest then due and payable before application to principal.

(c) Administrative Agent (or its agent or sub-agent appointed by it) shall promptly distribute to each Lender at such address as such Lender shall indicate in writing, such Lender's applicable Pro Rata Share of all payments and prepayments of principal and interest due hereunder, together with all other amounts due thereto, including, all fees payable with respect thereto, to the extent received by Administrative Agent.

(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions hereof, if any Conversion/Continuation Notice is withdrawn as to any Affected Lender or if any Affected Lender makes Base Rate Loans in lieu of its Pro Rata Share of any Eurodollar Rate Loans, Administrative Agent shall give effect thereto in apportioning payments received thereafter.

(e) Subject to the provisos set forth in the definition of "Interest Period" as they may apply to Revolving Loans, whenever any payment to be made hereunder with respect to any Loan shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and, with respect to Revolving Loans only, such extension of time shall be included in the computation of the payment of interest hereunder or of the Revolving Commitment fees hereunder.

(f) Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by Borrower hereunder shall be made to Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, in Dollars and otherwise in the manner set forth in clause (a) of this Section 2.16.

(g) Administrative Agent shall deem any payment by or on behalf of Borrower hereunder that is not made in same day funds prior to 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) to be a non-conforming payment. Any such payment shall not be deemed to have been received by Administrative Agent until the later of (i) the time such funds become available funds, and (ii) the next succeeding Business Day. Administrative Agent shall give prompt telephonic notice to Borrower and each applicable Lender (confirmed in writing) if any payment is non-conforming. Any non-conforming payment may constitute or become a Default or Event of Default in accordance with the terms of Section 8.1(a). Interest shall continue to accrue on any principal as to which a non-conforming payment is made until such funds become available funds (but in no event less than the period from the date of such payment to the next succeeding applicable Business Day) at the rate determined pursuant to Section 2.10 from the date such amount was due and payable until the date such amount is paid in full.

(h) If an Event of Default shall have occurred and not otherwise been waived, and the maturity of the Obligations shall have been accelerated pursuant to Section 8.1, all payments or proceeds received by Agents hereunder in respect of any of the Obligations, shall be applied in accordance with the application arrangements described in Section 9.2 of the Second Amended and Restated Pledge and Security Agreement and the analogous sections of any other Collateral Documents.

2.17 Ratable Sharing. Lenders hereby agree among themselves that, except as otherwise provided in the Collateral Documents with respect to amounts realized from the exercise of rights with respect to Liens on the Collateral, if any of them shall, whether by voluntary payment (other than a voluntary prepayment of Loans made and applied in accordance with the terms hereof), through the exercise of any right of set-off, consolidation or banker's lien, by counterclaim or cross action or by the enforcement of any right under the Credit Documents or otherwise, or as adequate protection of a deposit treated as

 

-60-


cash collateral under any Insolvency Laws, receive payment or reduction of a proportion of the aggregate amount of principal, interest, amounts payable in respect of Letters of Credit, fees and other amounts then due and owing to such Lender hereunder or under the other Credit Documents (collectively, the "Aggregate Amounts Due" to such Lender) which is greater than the proportion received by any other Lender in respect of the Aggregate Amounts Due to such other Lender, then the Lender receiving such proportionately greater payment shall (a) notify Administrative Agent and each other Lender of the receipt of such payment and (b) apply a portion of such payment to purchase participations (which it shall be deemed to have purchased from each seller of a participation simultaneously upon the receipt by such seller of its portion of such payment) in the Aggregate Amounts Due to the other Lenders so that all such recoveries of Aggregate Amounts Due shall be shared by all Lenders in proportion to the Aggregate Amounts Due to them; provided that, if all or part of such proportionately greater payment received by such purchasing Lender is thereafter recovered from such Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of Borrower or otherwise, those purchases shall be rescinded and the purchase prices paid for such participations shall be returned to such purchasing Lender ratably to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. Borrower expressly consents to the foregoing arrangement and agrees that any holder of a participation so purchased may exercise any and all rights of banker's lien, consolidation, set-off or counterclaim with respect to any and all monies owing by Borrower to that holder with respect thereto as fully as if that holder were owed the amount of the participation held by that holder. The provisions of this Section 2.17 shall not be construed to apply to (a) any payment made by Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or (b) any payment obtained by any Lender as consideration for the assignment or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or other Obligations owed to it in accordance herewith.

2.18 Making or Maintaining Eurodollar Rate Loans.

(a) Inability to Determine Applicable Interest Rate. In the event that Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error), on any Interest Rate Determination Date with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loans, that by reason of circumstances affecting the London interbank market, adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable to such Loans on the basis provided for in the definition of Adjusted Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Loan, Administrative Agent shall on such date give notice (by email or by telephone confirmed in writing) to Borrower and each Lender of such determination, whereupon (i) no Loans may be made as, or converted to, Eurodollar Rate Loans until such time as Administrative Agent notifies Borrower and Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, and (ii) any Funding Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice given by Borrower with respect to the Loans in respect of which such determination was made shall be deemed to be rescinded by Borrower.

(b) Illegality or Impracticability of Eurodollar Rate Loans. In the event that on any date any Lender shall have determined (which determination shall be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error) that the making, maintaining or continuation of its Eurodollar Rate Loans (i) has become unlawful as a result of compliance by such Lender in good faith with any law, treaty, governmental rule, regulation, guideline or order (or would conflict with any such treaty, governmental rule, regulation, guideline or order not having the force of law even though the failure to comply therewith would not be unlawful), or (ii) has become impracticable, as a result of contingencies occurring after the date hereof which materially and adversely affect the London interbank market or the position of such Lender in that market, then, and in any such event, such Lender shall be an "Affected Lender" and it shall on that day give notice (by email or by telephone confirmed in writing) to Borrower and Administrative Agent of such determination (which notice Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each other Lender). If the Administrative Agent receives a notice from (x) any Lender pursuant to clause (i) of

 

-61-


the preceding sentence or (y) a notice from Lenders constituting Requisite Lenders pursuant to clause (ii) of the preceding sentence, then (1) the obligation of the Lenders (or, in the case of any notice pursuant to clause (i) of the preceding sentence, such Lender) to make Loans as, or to convert Loans to, Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended until such notice shall be withdrawn by each Affected Lender, (2) to the extent such determination by the Affected Lender relates to a Eurodollar Rate Loan then being requested by Borrower pursuant to a Funding Notice or a Conversion/Continuation Notice, Lenders (or in the case of any notice pursuant to clause (i) of the preceding sentence, such Lender) shall make such Loan as (or continue such Loan as or convert such Loan to, as the case may be) a Base Rate Loan, (3) the Lenders' (or in the case of any notice pursuant to clause (i) of the preceding sentence, such Lender's) obligations to maintain their respective outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loans (the "Affected Loans"), shall be terminated at the earlier to occur of the expiration of the Interest Period then in effect with respect to the Affected Loans or when required by law, and (4) the Affected Loans shall automatically convert into Base Rate Loans on the date of such termination. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, to the extent a determination by an Affected Lender as described above relates to a Eurodollar Rate Loan then being requested by Borrower pursuant to a Funding Notice or a Conversion/Continuation Notice, Borrower shall have the option, subject to the provisions of Section 2.18(c), to rescind such Funding Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice as to all Lenders by giving written or telephonic notice (promptly confirmed by delivery of written notice thereof) to Administrative Agent of such rescission on the date on which the Affected Lender gives notice of its determination as described above (which notice of rescission Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each other Lender).

(c) Compensation for Breakage or Non-Commencement of Interest Periods. Borrower shall compensate each Lender, as promptly as practicable after written request by such Lender (which request shall set forth the basis for requesting such amounts and shall be conclusive absent manifest error), for all reasonable losses, expenses and liabilities (including any interest paid or calculated to be due and payable by such Lender to lenders of funds borrowed by it to make or carry its Eurodollar Rate Loans and any loss, expense or liability sustained by such Lender in connection with the liquidation or deployment of such funds but excluding loss of anticipated profits) which such Lender may sustain: (i) if for any reason (other than a default by such Lender) a borrowing of any Eurodollar Rate Loan does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Funding Notice or a telephonic request for borrowing, or a conversion to or continuation of any Eurodollar Rate Loan does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Conversion/Continuation Notice or a telephonic request for conversion or continuation; (ii) if any prepayment or other principal payment of, or any conversion of, any of its Eurodollar Rate Loans occurs on a date prior to the last day of an Interest Period applicable to that Loan; or (iii) if any prepayment of any of its Eurodollar Rate Loans is not made on any date specified in a notice of prepayment given by Borrower.

(d) Booking of Eurodollar Rate Loans. Any Lender may make, carry or transfer Eurodollar Rate Loans at, to, or for the account of any of its branch offices or the office of an Affiliate of such Lender.

(e) Assumptions Concerning Funding of Eurodollar Rate Loans. Calculation of all amounts payable to a Lender under this Section 2.18 and under Section 2.19 shall be made as though such Lender had actually funded each of its relevant Eurodollar Rate Loans a matching deposit or other borrowing in the offshore interbank market for such currency for a comparable amount and for a comparable period through the transfer of such matching deposit or other borrowing from an offshore office of such Lender to a domestic office of such Lender in the United States of America; provided, however, each Lender may fund each of its Eurodollar Rate Loans in any manner it sees fit and the foregoing assumptions shall be utilized only for the purposes of calculating amounts payable under this Section 2.18 and under Section 2.19.

2.19 Increased Costs; Capital Adequacy.

(a) Compensation for Increased Costs and Taxes. In the event that any Lender (which term shall include Issuing Bank for purposes of this Section 2.19(a)) shall reasonably determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) that any Applicable Law, or any change therein or in the interpretation, administration or application thereof (including the introduction of any new Applicable Law), or any determination of any Governmental Authority, in each case that becomes effective after the date hereof, or compliance by such Lender with any guideline, request or directive issued or made after the date hereof by any Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law): (i) subjects such Lender (or its applicable lending office) to any additional Tax (other than any Excluded Taxes (including any change in the rate of Excluded Taxes), Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes indemnified under Section 2.20) with respect to this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents or any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder or any payments to such Lender (or its applicable lending office) of principal, interest, fees or any other amount payable hereunder; (ii) imposes, modifies or holds applicable any reserve (including any marginal, emergency, supplemental, special or other reserve), special deposit, compulsory loan, FDIC insurance or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, or advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender (other than any such reserve or other requirements with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans that are reflected in the definition of "Adjusted Eurodollar Rate"); or (iii) imposes any other condition, cost or expense (other than with respect to a Tax matter) on or affecting such Lender (or its applicable lending office) or its obligations hereunder or the London interbank market and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of agreeing to make, making or maintaining Loans hereunder or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Lender (or its applicable lending office) with respect thereto; provided that, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (y) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall in each case be deemed a change of law, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued; then, in any such case, Borrower shall pay to such Lender, as promptly as practicable after receipt of the statement referred to in the next sentence, such additional amount or amounts (in the form of an increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or otherwise as such Lender in its sole discretion shall determine) as may be necessary to compensate such Lender for any such increased cost or reduction in amounts received or receivable hereunder. Such Lender shall deliver to Borrower (with a copy to Administrative Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Lender under this Section 2.19(a), which statement shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error.

(b) Capital Adequacy Adjustment. In the event that any Lender (which term shall include Issuing Bank for purposes of this Section 2.19(b)) shall have reasonably determined that the adoption, effectiveness, phase in or applicability after the Third Restatement Date of any Applicable Law regarding capital or liquidity adequacy, reserve requirements or similar requirements, or any change therein or in the interpretation, application or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Lender (or its applicable lending office) with any Applicable Law regarding capital or liquidity adequacy, reserve requirements or similar requirements (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on the capital of such Lender or any corporation controlling such Lender as a consequence of, or with reference to, such Lender's Loans or Revolving Commitments or Letters of Credit, or participations therein or other obligations hereunder with respect to the Loans or the Letters of Credit to a level below that which such Lender or such

 

-63-


controlling corporation could have achieved but for such adoption, effectiveness, phase in, applicability, change or compliance (taking into consideration the policies of such Lender or such controlling corporation with regard to capital adequacy); provided that, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (y) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall in each case be deemed a change of law, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued, then from time to time, within five Business Days after receipt by Borrower from such Lender of the statement referred to in the next sentence, Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such controlling corporation on an after tax basis for such reduction. Such Lender shall deliver to Borrower (with a copy to Administrative Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to Lender under this Section 2.19(b), which statement shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error.

2.20 Taxes; Withholding, etc.

(a) Payments to Be Free and Clear. All sums payable by or on behalf of any Credit Party hereunder and under the other Credit Documents shall (except to the extent required by law) be paid free and clear of, and without any deduction or withholding on account of, any Tax.

(b) Withholding of Taxes. If any Credit Party or any other applicable withholding agent is required by law to make any deduction or withholding on account of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from any sum paid or payable by any Credit Party to any Agent or any Lender (which term shall include each Swing Line Lender and Issuing Bank for purposes of this Section 2.20) under any of the Credit Documents: (i) Borrower shall notify Administrative Agent of any such requirement or any change in any such requirement as soon as Borrower becomes aware of it; (ii) the applicable withholding agent shall make such deduction or withholding and pay such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes before the date on which penalties attach thereto, such payment to be made (if the liability to pay is imposed on any Credit Party) for its own account or (if that liability is imposed on Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be) on behalf of and in the name of Administrative Agent or such Lender; (iii) the sum payable by the Credit Party in respect of which the relevant deduction, withholding or payment is required shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of that deduction, withholding or payment (including any deduction, withholding or payment applicable to additional amounts payable under this Section 2.20), Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, receives on the due date a net sum equal to what it would have received had no such deduction, withholding or payment been required or made; and (iv) within thirty days after paying any sum from which it is required by law to make any deduction or withholding, and within thirty days after the due date of payment of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes which it is required by clause (ii) above to pay, Borrower (if Borrower is the withholding agent) shall deliver to Administrative Agent evidence reasonably satisfactory to the other affected parties of such deduction, withholding or payment and of the remittance thereof to the relevant taxing or other authority.

(c) Borrower agrees to indemnify each Agent and each Lender for (i) the full amount of Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes (including any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes attributable to any amounts payable under this Section 2.20) payable by such Agent or such Lender (whether or not such Taxes are correctly or legally imposed) and (ii) any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto. A certificate from the relevant Lender or Agent, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis and calculation of such Taxes shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.

 

-64-


(d) Evidence of Exemption from Withholding Tax. Each Lender shall, at such times as are reasonably requested by Borrower or the Administrative Agent, provide Borrower and the Administrative Agent with any documentation prescribed by law or reasonably requested by Borrower or Administrative Agent certifying as to any entitlement of such Lender to an exemption from, or reduction in, withholding tax with respect to any payments to be made to such Lender under the Credit Documents. Each Lender shall, whenever a lapse in time or change in such Lender's circumstances renders such documentation obsolete, expired or inaccurate in any material respect, deliver promptly to Borrower and the Administrative Agent updated or other appropriate documentation (including any new documentation reasonably requested by the applicable withholding agent) or promptly notify Borrower and the Administrative Agent of its inability to do so.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, a Lender shall be required to provide any documentation under this Section 2.20(d) only to the extent it is legally eligible to do so.

(e) Payment of Taxes. In addition, Borrower agrees to pay any present or future stamp, court or documentary, intangible, recording, filing or similar Taxes imposed by any Governmental Authority, which arise from any payment made under any Credit Document or from the execution, delivery, performance, enforcement or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, any Credit Document ("Other Taxes").

(f) Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes (whether received in cash or applied by the taxing authority granting the refund to offset another Taxes otherwise owed) as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.20 (including additional amounts paid pursuant to this Section 2.20), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including any Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid to such indemnified party pursuant to the previous sentence (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.20(f), in no event will any indemnified party be required to pay any amount to any indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 2.20(f) if such payment would place such indemnified party in a less favorable position (on a net after-Tax basis) than such indemnified party would have been in if the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This Section 2.20(f) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(g) Minimum Interest. As part of entering into this Agreement, the parties hereto have assumed that the interest payable at the rates set forth in this Agreement is not and will not become subject to Swiss Federal Withholding Tax. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto agree that in the event that (A) Swiss Federal Withholding Tax is due on interest payments or other payments by any Credit Party under this Agreement and (B) Section 2.20(b) (Withholding of Taxes) is unenforceable for any reason:

(x) the applicable interest rate in relation to that interest payment shall be (i) the interest rate which would have applied to that interest payment as provided for in Section 2.8 divided by (ii) 1 minus the rate at which the relevant Swiss Federal Withholding Tax deduction is required to be made under Swiss domestic tax law and / or applicable double taxation treaties (where the rate at which the relevant Swiss Federal Withholding Tax deduction is required to be made is for this purpose expressed as a fraction of 1); and

 

-65-


(y) the Credit Party shall (i) pay the relevant interest at the adjusted rate in accordance with paragraph (x) above, (ii) make the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax deduction on the interest so recalculated and (iii) all references to a rate of interest under the Agreement shall be construed accordingly.

To the extent that interest payable by any Credit Party under this Agreement becomes subject to Swiss Federal Withholding Tax, the parties shall promptly co-operate in completing any procedural formalities (including submitting forms and documents required by the Swiss or foreign tax authorities) to the extent possible and necessary for the Credit Party to obtain the tax ruling from the Swiss Federal Tax Administration.

Section 2.20(f) equally applies to this Section 2.20(g).

2.21 Obligation to Mitigate. Each Lender (which term shall include Issuing Bank for purposes of this Section 2.21) agrees that, as promptly as practicable after the officer of such Lender responsible for administering its Loans or Letters of Credit, as the case may be, becomes aware of the occurrence of an event or the existence of a condition that would cause such Lender to become an Affected Lender or that would entitle such Lender to receive payments under Section 2.18, 2.19 or 2.20, it will, to the extent not inconsistent with the internal policies of such Lender and any applicable legal or regulatory restrictions, use reasonable efforts to (a) make, issue, fund or maintain its Credit Extensions, including any Affected Loans, through another office of such Lender, or (b) take such other measures as such Lender may deem reasonable, if as a result thereof the circumstances which would cause such Lender to be an Affected Lender would cease to exist or the additional amounts which would otherwise be required to be paid to such Lender pursuant to Section 2.18, 2.19 or 2.20 would be materially reduced and if, as determined by such Lender in its sole discretion, the making, issuing, funding or maintaining of such Revolving Commitments, Loans or Letters of Credit through such other office or in accordance with such other measures, as the case may be, would not otherwise adversely affect such Revolving Commitments, Loans or Letters of Credit or the interests of such Lender; provided, such Lender will not be obligated to utilize such other office or take such other measures pursuant to this Section 2.21 unless Borrower agrees to pay all reasonable incremental expenses incurred by such Lender as a result of utilizing such other office or take such other measures as described above. A certificate as to the amount of any such expenses payable by Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.21 (setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for requesting such amount) submitted by such Lender to Borrower (with a copy to Administrative Agent) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

2.22 Defaulting Lenders. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then during any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender shall be deemed not to be a "Lender" for purposes of any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to any provision of the Credit Documents that requires the approval of Requisite Lenders, and Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent such additional amounts of cash as reasonably requested by the Issuing Bank or the Swing Line Lender to be held as security for Borrower's reimbursement Obligations in respect of Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans then outstanding (such amount not to exceed such Defaulting Lender's obligations under Sections 2.3 and 2.4). During any Default Period with respect to a Funds Defaulting Lender that is not also an Insolvency Defaulting Lender, (a) any amounts that would otherwise be payable to such Funds Defaulting Lender with respect to its Revolving Loans and Revolving Commitments under the Credit Documents (including, without limitation, voluntary and mandatory prepayments and fees) shall, in lieu of being distributed to such Funds Defaulting Lender, be retained by Administrative Agent and applied in the following order of

 

-66-


priority: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Funds Defaulting Lender to Administrative Agent, second, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Funds Defaulting Lender to the Swing Line Lender, third, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Funds Defaulting Lender to the Issuing Bank, and fourth, to the payment of the Revolving Loans of other Lenders (but not to the Revolving Loans of such Funds Defaulting Lender) as if such Funds Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Funds Defaulting Lender; and (b) the Total Utilization of Revolving Commitments as at any date of determination shall be calculated as if such Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Defaulting Lender. During any Default Period with respect to an Insolvency Defaulting Lender, any amounts that would otherwise be payable to such Insolvency Defaulting Lender under the Credit Documents (including, without limitation, voluntary and mandatory prepayments and fees including fees payable under Section 2.11) may, in lieu of being distributed to such Insolvency Defaulting Lender, be retained by Administrative Agent to collateralize indemnification and reimbursement obligations of such Insolvency Defaulting Lender in an amount reasonably determined by Administrative Agent. No Revolving Commitment of any Lender shall be increased or otherwise affected, and, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 2.22, performance by Borrower of its obligations hereunder and the other Credit Documents shall not be excused or otherwise modified as a result of any Lender becoming a Defaulting Lender or the operation of this Section 2.22. The rights and remedies against a Defaulting Lender under this Section 2.22 are in addition to other rights and remedies which Borrower may have against such Defaulting Lender as a result of it becoming a Defaulting Lender and which Administrative Agent or any Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect thereto. If any Letter of Credit Usage exists at the time such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then all or any part of such Letter of Credit Usage shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share but only to the extent (x) the sum of each non-Defaulting Lender's Revolving Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender's Letter of Credit Usage does not exceed the total of such non-Defaulting Lender's Revolving Commitments and (y) no Default or Event of Default exists or shall have occurred.

2.23 Removal or Replacement of a Lender. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that: (a) (i) any Lender (an "Increased Cost Lender") shall give notice to Borrower that such Lender is an Affected Lender or that such Lender is entitled to receive payments under Section 2.18, 2.19 or 2.20, (ii) the circumstances which have caused such Lender to be an Affected Lender or which entitle such Lender to receive such payments shall remain in effect, and (iii) such Lender shall fail to withdraw such notice within five Business Days after Borrower's request for such withdrawal; or (b) (i) any Lender shall become a Defaulting Lender, (ii) the Default Period for such Defaulting Lender shall remain in effect, and (iii) such Defaulting Lender shall fail to cure the default as a result of which it has become a Defaulting Lender within five Business Days after Borrower's request that it cure such default; or (c) in connection with any proposed amendment, modification, termination, waiver or consent with respect to any of the provisions hereof as contemplated by Section 10.5(b), the consent of Requisite Lenders shall have been obtained but the consent of one or more of such other Lenders (each a "Non-Consenting Lender") whose consent is required shall not have been obtained; then, with respect to each such Increased Cost Lender, Defaulting Lender or Non-Consenting Lender (the "Terminated Lender"), Borrower may, by giving written notice to Administrative Agent and any Terminated Lender of its election to do so, elect to cause such Terminated Lender (and such Terminated Lender hereby irrevocably agrees) to assign its outstanding Loans and its Revolving Commitments, if any, in full to one or more Eligible Assignees (each a "Replacement Lender") in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.6 and Borrower shall pay the fees, if any, payable thereunder in connection with any such assignment from an Increased Cost Lender, a Non-Consenting Lender or Insolvency Defaulting Lender, and the Funds Defaulting Lender (if not also an Insolvency Defaulting Lender) shall pay the fees, if any, payable thereunder in connection with any such assignment from such Defaulting Lender; provided, (1) on the date of such assignment, the Replacement Lender shall pay to Terminated Lender an amount equal to the sum of (A) an amount equal to the principal of, and all accrued interest on, all outstanding Loans of the Terminated Lender, (B) an amount equal to all unreimbursed drawings that have been funded by such Terminated

 

-67-


Lender, together with all then unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time and (C) an amount equal to all accrued, but theretofore unpaid fees owing to such Terminated Lender pursuant to Section 2.11; (2) on the date of such assignment, Borrower shall pay any amounts payable to such Terminated Lender pursuant to Section 2.18(c), 2.19 or 2.20; or otherwise as if it were a prepayment; (3) in the case of any assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.19 or payments required to be made under Section 2.20, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payment and (4) in the event such Terminated Lender is a Non-Consenting Lender, each Replacement Lender shall consent, at the time of such assignment, to each matter in respect of which such Terminated Lender was a Non-Consenting Lender; provided that Borrower may not make such election with respect to any Terminated Lender that is also an Issuing Bank unless, prior to the effectiveness of such election, Borrower shall have caused each outstanding Letter of Credit issued thereby to be cancelled. Upon the prepayment of all amounts owing to any Terminated Lender and the termination of such Terminated Lender's Revolving Commitments, if any, such Terminated Lender shall no longer constitute a "Lender" for purposes hereof; provided that any rights of such Terminated Lender to indemnification hereunder shall survive as to such Terminated Lender. Each Lender agrees that if Borrower exercises its option hereunder to cause an assignment by such Lender as a Terminated Lender, such Lender shall, promptly after receipt of written notice of such election, execute and deliver all documentation necessary to effectuate such assignment in accordance with Section 10.6. In the event that a Terminated Lender does not comply with the requirements of the immediately preceding sentence within one Business Day after receipt of such notice, each Lender hereby authorizes and directs the Administrative Agent to execute and deliver such documentation as may be required to give effect to an assignment in accordance with Section 10.6 on behalf of such Terminated Lender and any such documentation so executed by the Administrative Agent shall be effective for purposes of documenting an assignment pursuant to Section 10.6.

2.24 Interest Act (Canada). For purposes of disclosure pursuant to the Interest Act (Canada), the annual rates of interest or fees to which the rates of interest or fees provided for in this Agreement and the other Credit Documents (and stated herein or therein, as applicable, to be computed on the basis of a 360 day year or any other period of time less than a calendar year) are equivalent are the rates so provided for multiplied by the actual number of days in the applicable calendar year and divided by 360 or the actual number of days in such other period of time, respectively.

2.25 Incremental Facilities. Borrower may by written notice to Administrative Agent elect to request (A) prior to the Revolving Commitment Termination Date, an increase to the existing Revolving Loan Commitments (any such increase, the "New Revolving Loan Commitments") and/or (B) the establishment of one or more new term loan commitments (the "New Term Loan Commitments"), by an amount such that Borrower and its Subsidiaries shall be in compliance, on a Pro Forma Basis after giving effect to such New Term Loans or New Revolving Loan Commitments and the application of the proceeds thereof, with a Secured Leverage Ratio of 2.50 to 1.00; provided, that, the aggregate amount of any New Revolving Loan Commitments and/or Tranche A New Term Loan Commitments may not exceed $500,000,000; provided, further, any New Revolving Loan Commitment or New Term Loan Commitment shall not be less than $25,000,000 individually (or such lesser amount which shall be approved by Administrative Agent or such lesser amount that represents all remaining availability under any limit set forth above in this Section 2.25), and integral multiples of $10,000,000 in excess of that amount. Each such notice shall specify (A) the date (each, an "Increased Amount Date") on which Borrower proposes that the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than 5 Business Days after the date on which such notice is delivered to Administrative Agent, or such later date acceptable to the Administrative Agent, and (B) the identity of each Lender or other Person that is an Eligible Assignee; provided that, Issuing Bank shall have consented (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) to the allocation of New Revolving Loan Commitments to any Eligible Assignee under clause (ii) of the definition thereof (each, a "New Revolving Loan Lender" or "New Term Loan Lender," as applicable) to whom Borrower proposes any portion

 

-68-


of such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments, as applicable, be allocated and the amounts of such allocations; provided that GSLP may elect or decline to arrange such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments, as applicable, in its sole discretion and any Lender approached to provide all or a portion of the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide a New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitment.

Such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments shall become effective, as of such Increased Amount Date; provided that (1) no Default or Event of Default shall exist on such Increased Amount Date before or after giving effect to such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments; (2) both before and after giving effect to the making of any Series of New Term Loans, each of the conditions set forth in Section 3.3 shall be satisfied; (3) Borrower and its Subsidiaries shall be in compliance, on a Pro Forma Basis after giving effect to such New Term Loans and the application of the proceeds thereof, with each of the covenants set forth in Section 6.7 as of the last day of the most recently ended Fiscal Quarter after giving effect to such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments; (4) the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments, as applicable, shall be effected pursuant to one or more Joinder Agreements executed and delivered by the applicable New Revolving Loan Lender or New Term Loan Lender, as the case may be, Borrower and Administrative Agent, and each of which shall be recorded in the Register and shall be subject to the requirements set forth in Section 2.20(d); (5) Borrower shall make any payments required pursuant to Section 2.18(c) in connection with the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments, as applicable; (6) Borrower shall deliver or cause to be delivered any legal opinions or other documents reasonably requested by Administrative Agent in connection with any such transaction.

The present value of the aggregate benefit liabilities under each Pension Plan sponsored, maintained or contributed to by Borrower, any of its Subsidiaries or any of their ERISA Affiliates (determined as of the end of the most recent plan year on the basis of the actuarial assumptions specified for funding purposes in the most recent actuarial valuation for such Pension Plan), did not exceed the then-current aggregate value of the assets of such Pension Plan by more than $70,000,000. As of the most recent valuation date for each Multiemployer Plan for which the actuarial report is available, the potential liability of Borrower, its Subsidiaries and their respective ERISA Affiliates for a complete withdrawal from such Multiemployer Plan (within the meaning of Section 4203 of ERISA), when aggregated with such potential liability for a complete withdrawal from all Multiemployer Plans, based on information available pursuant to Section 4221(e) of ERISA, is not more than $70,000,000. Except as could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, Borrower, each of its Subsidiaries and each of their ERISA Affiliates have complied with the requirements of Section 515 of ERISA with respect to each Multiemployer Plan and are not in "default" (as defined in Section 4219(c)(5) of ERISA) with respect to payments to a Multiemployer Plan.

There is no investigation by a Governmental Authority or claim (other than routine claims for payment of benefits) pending or, to the knowledge of a Canadian Credit Party, threatened involving any Canadian Employee Benefit Plan or its assets, and no facts exist which could reasonably be expected to give rise to any such investigation or claim (other than routine claims for payment of benefits) which if determined adversely, could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) All employer and employee payments, contributions and premiums required to be remitted, paid to or in respect of each Canadian Pension Plan have been paid or remitted in accordance with its terms and all applicable laws.

None of the Canadian Employee Benefit Plans, other than the Canadian Pension Plans, provide benefits beyond retirement or other termination of service to employees or former employees of a Canadian Credit Party, or to the beneficiaries or dependants of such employees.

Any projections and pro forma financial information contained in such materials are based upon good faith estimates and assumptions believed by Borrower to be reasonable at the time made, it being recognized by Lenders that such projections as to future events are not to be viewed as facts and that actual results during the period or periods covered by any such projections may differ from the projected results and such differences may be material.

7.4 Liability of Guarantors Absolute. To the extent permitted under Applicable Law, each Guarantor agrees that its obligations hereunder are irrevocable, absolute, independent and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance which constitutes a legal or equitable discharge of a guarantor or surety other than satisfaction in full of the Guaranteed Obligations. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, each Guarantor agrees as follows:

(a) this Guaranty is a guaranty of payment and performance when due and not of collectability. This Guaranty is a primary obligation of each Guarantor and not merely a contract of surety;

(b) to the extent permitted under Applicable Law, Administrative Agent may enforce this Guaranty upon the occurrence of an Event of Default notwithstanding the existence of any dispute between Borrower and any Beneficiary with respect to the existence of such Event of Default;

(e) any Beneficiary, upon such terms as it deems appropriate, without notice or demand and without affecting the validity or enforceability hereof or giving rise to any reduction, limitation, impairment, discharge or termination of any Guarantor's liability hereunder, from time to time may (i) renew, extend, accelerate, increase the rate of interest on, or otherwise change the time, place, manner or terms of payment of the Guaranteed Obligations; (ii) settle, compromise, release or discharge, or accept or refuse any offer of performance with respect to, or substitutions for, the Guaranteed Obligations or any agreement relating thereto and/or subordinate the payment of the same to the payment of any other obligations; (iii) request and accept other guaranties of the Guaranteed Obligations and take and hold security for the payment hereof or the Guaranteed Obligations; (iv) release, surrender, exchange, substitute, compromise, settle, rescind, waive, alter, subordinate or modify, with or without consideration, any security for payment of the Guaranteed Obligations, any other guaranties of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any other obligation of any Person (including any other Guarantor) with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations; (v) enforce and apply any security now or hereafter held by or for the benefit of such Beneficiary in respect hereof or the Guaranteed Obligations and direct the order or manner of sale thereof, or exercise any other right or remedy that such Beneficiary may have against any such security, in each case as such Beneficiary in its discretion may determine consistent herewith or the applicable Hedge Agreement or Cash Management Agreement and any applicable security agreement, including foreclosure on any such security pursuant to one or more judicial or nonjudicial sales, whether or not every aspect of any such sale is commercially reasonable, and even though such

 

-104-


action operates to impair or extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of any Guarantor against Borrower or any security for the Guaranteed Obligations; and (vi) exercise any other rights available to it under the Credit Documents or any Hedge Agreements or any Cash Management Agreements; and

(f) this Guaranty and the obligations of Guarantors hereunder shall be valid and enforceable and shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment, discharge or termination for any reason (other than payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations), including the occurrence of any of the following, whether or not any Guarantor shall have had notice or knowledge of any of them: (i) any failure or omission to assert or enforce or agreement or election not to assert or enforce, or the stay or enjoining, by order of court, by operation of law or otherwise, of the exercise or enforcement of, any claim or demand or any right, power or remedy (whether arising under the Credit Documents or any Hedge Agreements or any Cash Management Agreements, at law, in equity or otherwise) with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations or any agreement relating thereto, or with respect to any other guaranty of or security for the payment or performance of the Guaranteed Obligations; (ii) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or any consent to departure from, any of the terms or provisions (including provisions relating to events of default) hereof, any of the other Credit Documents, any of the Hedge Agreements, any of the Cash Management Agreements or any agreement or instrument executed pursuant thereto, or of any other guaranty or security for the Guaranteed Obligations, in each case whether or not in accordance with the terms hereof or such Credit Document, such Hedge Agreement, such Cash Management Agreement or any agreement relating to such other guaranty or security; (iii) to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, the Guaranteed Obligations, or any agreement relating thereto, at any time being found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect; (iv) the application of payments received from any source (other than payments received pursuant to the other Credit Documents, any of the Hedge Agreements, any of the Cash Management Agreements or from the proceeds of any security for the Guaranteed Obligations, except to the extent such security also serves as collateral for indebtedness other than the Guaranteed Obligations) to the payment of indebtedness other than the Guaranteed Obligations, even though any Beneficiary might have elected to apply such payment to any part or all of the Guaranteed Obligations; (v) any Beneficiary's consent to the change, reorganization or termination of the corporate structure or existence of Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries and to any corresponding restructuring of the Guaranteed Obligations; (vi) any failure to perfect or continue perfection of a security interest in any collateral which secures any of the Guaranteed Obligations; (vii) to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, any defenses, set-offs or counterclaims which Borrower may allege or assert against any Beneficiary in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations, including failure of consideration, breach of warranty, payment, statute of frauds, statute of limitations, accord and satisfaction and usury; and (viii) any other act or thing or omission, or delay to do any other act or thing, which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of any Guarantor as an obligor in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations.

(g) Each of the Secured Parties agrees not to enforce the guarantee created hereunder by, or any other Obligations under the Credit Document of a Guarantor established in Luxembourg (a "Luxembourg Guarantor") in so far as the aggregate obligations and liabilities of any Luxembourg Guarantor with respect to the repayment under a joint and several liability clause of any borrowing or costs or expenses not incurred directly or indirectly by or on behalf of the Luxembourg Guarantor, and the granting of any guarantee, indemnity or security under the Credit Documents exceed 90% each time the higher of (i) the book value of all the assets of the Luxembourg Guarantor at the time of this Agreement or at the time the relevant guarantee or security is enforced or (ii) the net assets (capitaux propres as referred to in article 34 of the Luxembourg law on the commercial register and annual accounts) of such Luxembourg Guarantor as shown in the

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Credit Documents, the limitation set out in this Section 7.4(g) shall apply to the aggregate of all securities, whether guarantees, pledges, security assignments, or otherwise, granted or to be granted by the Luxembourg Guarantor.

In addition, until the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full and the Revolving Commitments shall have terminated and all Letters of Credit shall have expired or been cancelled, each Guarantor shall withhold exercise of any right of contribution such Guarantor may have against any other guarantor (including any other Guarantor) of the Guaranteed Obligations, including any such right of contribution as contemplated by the Contribution Agreement. Each Guarantor further agrees that, to the extent the waiver or agreement to withhold the exercise of its rights of subrogation, reimbursement, indemnification and contribution as set forth herein is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void or voidable for any reason, any rights of subrogation, reimbursement or indemnification such Guarantor may have against Borrower or against any collateral or security, and any rights of contribution such Guarantor may have against any such other guarantor, shall be junior and subordinate to any rights any Beneficiary may have against Borrower, to all right, title and interest any Beneficiary may have in any such collateral or security, and to any right any Beneficiary may have against such other guarantor. If any amount shall be paid to any Guarantor on account of any such subrogation, reimbursement, indemnification or contribution rights at any time when all Guaranteed Obligations shall not have been finally and indefeasibly paid in full, such amount shall be held in trust for Administrative Agent on behalf of Beneficiaries and shall forthwith be paid over to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Beneficiaries to be credited and applied against the Guaranteed Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms hereof.

7.7 Subordination of Other Obligations. Any Indebtedness of Borrower or any Guarantor now or hereafter held by any Guarantor (the "Obligee Guarantor") is hereby subordinated in right of payment to the Guaranteed Obligations, and any such Indebtedness collected or received by the Obligee Guarantor after an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing shall be held in trust for Administrative Agent on behalf of Beneficiaries and shall forthwith be paid over to Administrative Agent for the benefit of Beneficiaries to be credited and applied against the Guaranteed Obligations but without affecting, impairing or limiting in any manner the liability of the Obligee Guarantor under any other provision hereof.

7.8 Continuing Guaranty. This Guaranty is a continuing guaranty and shall remain in effect until all of the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been paid in full and the Revolving Commitments shall have terminated and all Letters of Credit shall have expired or been cancelled. Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives any right to revoke this Guaranty as to future transactions giving rise to any Guaranteed Obligations.

7.9 Authority of Guarantors or Borrower. It is not necessary for any Beneficiary to inquire into the capacity or powers of any Guarantor or Borrower or the officers, directors or any agents acting or purporting to act on behalf of any of them.

7.10 Financial Condition of Borrower. Any Credit Extension may be made to Borrower or continued from time to time, and any Hedge Agreements or Cash Management Agreements may be entered into from time to time, in each case without notice to or authorization from any Guarantor regardless of the financial or other condition of Borrower at the time of any such grant or continuation or at the time such Hedge Agreement or Cash Management Agreement is entered into, as the case may be. No Beneficiary shall have any obligation to disclose or discuss with any Guarantor its assessment, or any Guarantor's assessment, of the financial condition of Borrower. Each Guarantor has adequate means to obtain information from Borrower on a continuing basis concerning the financial condition of Borrower and its ability to perform its obligations under the Credit Documents and the Hedge Agreements and the Cash Management Agreements, and each Guarantor assumes the responsibility for being and keeping informed of the financial condition of Borrower and of all circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Guaranteed Obligations. Each Guarantor hereby waives and relinquishes any duty on the part of any Beneficiary to disclose any matter, fact or thing relating to the business, operations or conditions of Borrower now known or hereafter known by any Beneficiary.

7.11 Bankruptcy, etc.

(a) So long as any Guaranteed Obligations remain outstanding, no Guarantor shall, without the prior written consent of Administrative Agent acting pursuant to the instructions of Requisite Lenders, commence or join with any other Person in commencing any bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency case, application or proceeding of or against Borrower or any other Guarantor. The obligations of Guarantors hereunder shall not be reduced, limited, impaired, discharged, deferred, suspended or terminated by any case, application or proceeding, voluntary or involuntary, involving the bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization, liquidation or arrangement of Borrower or any other Guarantor or by any defense which Borrower or any other Guarantor may have by reason of the order, decree or decision of any court or administrative body resulting from any such proceeding.

(b) Each Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that any interest on any portion of the Guaranteed Obligations which accrues after the commencement of any case, application or proceeding referred to in clause (a) above (or, if interest on any portion of the Guaranteed Obligations ceases to accrue by operation of law by reason of the commencement of such case, application or proceeding, such interest as would have accrued on such portion of the Guaranteed Obligations if such case, application or proceeding had not been commenced) shall be included in the Guaranteed Obligations because it is the intention of Guarantors and Beneficiaries that the Guaranteed Obligations which are guaranteed by Guarantors pursuant hereto should be determined without regard to any rule of law or order which may relieve Borrower of any portion of such Guaranteed Obligations. Guarantors will permit any trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, debtor in possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors or similar Person to pay Administrative Agent, or allow the claim of Administrative Agent in respect of, any such interest accruing after the date on which such case, application or proceeding is commenced.

(c) In the event that all or any portion of the Guaranteed Obligations are paid by Borrower, the obligations of Guarantors hereunder shall continue and remain in full force and effect or be reinstated, as the case may be, in the event that all or any part of such payment(s) are rescinded or recovered directly or indirectly from any Beneficiary as a preference, fraudulent transfer or otherwise, and any such payments which are so rescinded or recovered shall constitute Guaranteed Obligations for all purposes hereunder.

7.12 Discharge of Guaranty upon Sale of Guarantor. If all of the Equity Interests of any Guarantor or any of its successors in interest hereunder shall be sold or otherwise disposed of (including by merger, amalgamation or consolidation) in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof, the Guaranty of such Guarantor or such successor in interest, as the case may be, hereunder shall automatically be discharged and released without any further action by any Beneficiary or any other Person effective as of the time of such Asset Sale.

7.13 Swiss Guarantee Limitations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Credit Document, the following limitations shall apply to any Swiss Guarantor:

(a) If complying with the obligations of the Swiss Guarantor under the guarantee (including for the avoidance of doubt, any restrictions of the Swiss Guarantor's rights of set-off and/or subrogation or its duties to subordinate or waive claims, if any) would constitute a repayment of capital (Einlagerückgewähr), a violation of the legally protected reserves (gesetzlich geschützte Reserven) or the payment of a (constructive) dividend (Gewinnausschüttung) by the Swiss Guarantor or would otherwise be restricted under Swiss corporate law then applicable (the

 

-108-


"Restricted Obligations"), the aggregate liability of the Swiss Guarantor for Restricted Obligations shall not exceed the amount of the Swiss Guarantor's freely disposable equity in accordance with Swiss law, being the total assets of the relevant Swiss Guarantor less the total of (1) the aggregate of the relevant Swiss Guarantor's liabilities, (2) the aggregate share capital and (3) statutory reserves (including reserves for own shares and revaluations as well as capital surplus (agio) to the extent such reserves cannot be transferred into unrestricted, distributable reserves (the "Maximum Amount"). The amount of freely disposable equity shall be determined on the basis of an audited interim balance sheet as set out in clause (b)(ii) below. This limitation shall only apply to the extent that it is a requirement under applicable Swiss mandatory law at the time the Swiss Guarantor is required to perform its guarantee obligations under the Credit Documents. Such limitation shall not free the Swiss Guarantor from its obligations in excess thereof, but merely postpone the performance date therefor until such time as performance is again permitted notwithstanding such limitation.

(b) Immediately after having been requested to make any payments or otherwise perform Restricted Obligations under the guarantee, the Swiss Guarantor shall, and any parent company of the Swiss Guarantor being a party to this Agreement shall procure that, the Swiss Guarantor will:

(i) perform any Restricted Obligations which are not affected by the above limitations and take and cause to be taken all and any action, including, without limitation, (1) the passing of any shareholders' resolutions to approve any payment or other performance under this Agreement or any other Credit Document and (2) the obtaining of any confirmations which may be required as a matter of Swiss mandatory law in force at the time the Swiss Guarantor is required to make a payment or perform other obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, in order to allow a prompt payment of amounts owed by the Swiss Guarantor under this Agreement or any other Credit Document as well as the performance by the Swiss Guarantor of other obligations there related with a minimum of limitations; and

(ii) in respect of any balance, if and to the extent requested by the Collateral Agent or required under then applicable Swiss law, provide the Collateral Agent with an interim balance sheet audited by the statutory auditors of the Swiss Guarantor setting out the Maximum Amount, take such further corporate and other action as may be required by law (such as board and shareholders' approvals and the receipt of any confirmations from the Swiss Guarantor's statutory auditors) and other measures necessary to allow the Swiss Guarantor to make the payments agreed hereunder with a minimum of limitations and, immediately thereafter, pay up to the Maximum Amount to the Collateral Agent.

(c) If the enforcement of the obligations of the Swiss Guarantor under the Credit Documents would be limited due to the effects referred to in this Agreement, the Swiss Guarantor shall further, to the extent permitted by applicable law and Swiss accounting standards and upon request by the Collateral Agent, write up or sell any of its assets that are shown in its balance sheet with a book value that is significantly lower than the market value of the assets, in case of sale, however, only if such assets are not necessary for the Swiss Guarantor's business (nicht betriebsnotwendig) and such sale is permitted under the Credit Documents.

(d) To the extent required by applicable law, including double tax treaties, in force at the time, the Swiss Guarantor is required to make a payment under this Agreement it shall:

(i) use its best efforts to ensure that such payments can be made without deduction of Swiss Withholding Tax, or with deduction of Swiss Federal Withholding Tax at a reduced rate, by discharging the liability to such tax by notification pursuant to applicable law (including tax treaties) rather than payment of the tax;

 

-109-


(ii) deduct the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax at such rate (being 35% on the date hereof) as in force from time to time if the notification procedure pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) above does not apply; or shall deduct the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax at the reduced rate resulting after discharge of part of such tax by notification if the notification procedure pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) applies for a part of the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax only; and shall pay within the time allowed any such taxes deducted to the Swiss Federal Tax Administration; and

(iii) notify and provide evidence to the Collateral Agent that the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax has been paid to the Swiss Federal Tax Administration.

(e) To the extent such deduction is made, and to the extent the maximum amount of freely disposable shareholder equity pursuant to this Agreement is not fully utilized, the Swiss Guarantor shall be required to pay an additional amount so that after making any required deduction of Swiss Federal Withholding Tax the aggregate net amount paid to the Lenders is equal to the amount which would have been paid if no deduction of Swiss Federal Withholding Tax had been required, provided that the aggregate amount paid (and including amounts withheld) shall in any event be limited to the maximum amount of freely disposable shareholder equity pursuant to this Agreement.

(f) The Swiss Guarantor shall use its reasonable efforts to ensure that any Person which is, as a result of a deduction of Swiss Federal Withholding Tax, entitled to a full or partial refund of the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax, will, as soon as possible after the deduction of the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax,

(i) request a refund of the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax under any applicable law (including double tax treaties), and

(ii) pay to the Collateral Agent upon receipt any amount so refunded (and after deduction of any tax) if so required under the guarantee or the Indenture and to the extent legally permissible.

(g) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Credit Documents, the limitation set out in this Section 7.13 shall apply to the aggregate of all securities, whether guarantees, pledges, security assignments, or otherwise, granted or to be granted by the Swiss Guarantor.

9.4 Agents Entitled to Act as Lender. The agency hereby created shall in no way impair or affect any of the rights and powers of, or impose any duties or obligations upon, any Agent in its individual capacity as a Lender hereunder. With respect to its participation in the Loans and the Letters of Credit, each Agent shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender and may exercise the same as if it were not performing the duties and functions delegated to it hereunder, and the term "Lender" shall, unless the context clearly otherwise indicates, include each Agent in its individual capacity.

(a) Each Lender represents and warrants that it has made its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of Borrower and its respective Subsidiaries in connection with Credit Extensions hereunder and that it has made and shall continue to make its own appraisal of the creditworthiness of Borrower and its Subsidiaries.

and agents of each Agent and (b) Issuing Bank, their Affiliates and their respective officers, partners, directors, trustees, employees and agents of Issuing Bank (each, an "Indemnitee Agent Party"), to the extent that such Indemnitee Agent Party shall not have been reimbursed by any Credit Party, for and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including counsel fees and disbursements) or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Indemnitee Agent Party in exercising its powers, rights and remedies or performing its duties hereunder or under the other Credit Documents or otherwise in its capacity as such Agent or Issuing Bank in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or the other Credit Documents, in all cases, whether or not caused by or arising, in whole or in part, out of the negligence of such Indemnitee Agent Party; provided that no Lender shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from such Indemnitee Agent Party's gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. If any indemnity furnished to any Indemnitee Agent Party for any purpose shall, in the opinion of such Indemnitee Agent Party, be insufficient or become impaired, such Indemnitee Agent Party may call for additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against until such additional indemnity is furnished; provided that in no event shall this sentence require any Lender to indemnify any Indemnitee Agent Party against any liability, obligation, loss, damage, penalty, action, judgment, suit, cost, expense or disbursement in excess of such Lender's Pro Rata Share thereof; and provided further that this sentence shall not be deemed to require any Lender to indemnify any Indemnitee Agent Party against any liability, obligation, loss, damage, penalty, action, judgment, suit, cost, expense or disbursement described in the proviso in the immediately preceding sentence.

9.7 Successor Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent and Swing Line Lender.

(a) Administrative Agent shall have the right to resign at any time by giving prior written notice thereof to Lenders and Borrower, and Administrative Agent may be removed at any time with or without cause by an instrument or concurrent instruments in writing delivered to Borrower and Administrative Agent and signed by Requisite Lenders. Administrative Agent shall have the right to appoint a financial institution to act as Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent hereunder, subject to the reasonable satisfaction of Borrower (other than at any time an Event of Default shall have occurred and then be continuing) and the Requisite Lenders, and Administrative Agent's resignation shall become effective on the earliest of (i) 30 days after delivery of the notice of resignation, (ii) the acceptance of such successor Administrative Agent by Borrower (other than at any time an Event of Default shall have occurred and then be continuing) and the Requisite Lenders or (iii) such other date, if any, agreed to by the Requisite Lenders. Upon any such notice of resignation or any such removal, if a successor Administrative Agent has not already been appointed by the retiring Administrative Agent, Requisite Lenders shall have the right, upon five Business Days' notice to Borrower, to appoint a successor Administrative Agent. If neither Requisite Lenders nor Administrative Agent have appointed a successor Administrative Agent, Requisite Lenders shall be deemed to have succeeded to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent; provided that, until a successor Administrative Agent is so appointed by Requisite Lenders or Administrative Agent, any collateral security held by Administrative Agent in its role as Collateral Agent on behalf of the Lenders or the Issuing Bank under any of the Credit Documents shall continue to be held by the retiring Collateral Agent as nominee until such time as a successor Collateral Agent is appointed. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, that successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Administrative Agent and the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall promptly (i) transfer to such successor Administrative Agent all sums, Securities and other items of Collateral held under the Collateral Documents, together with all records and other documents necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of the duties of the successor Administrative Agent under the Credit

 

-116-


Documents, and (ii) execute and deliver to such successor Administrative Agent such amendments to financing statements, and take such other actions, as may be necessary or appropriate in connection with the assignment to such successor Administrative Agent of the security interests created under the Collateral Documents, whereupon such retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. Except as provided above, any resignation or removal of GSLP or its successor as Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section shall also constitute the resignation or removal of GSLP or its successor as Collateral Agent. After any retiring or removed Administrative Agent's resignation or removal hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 9 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent hereunder. Any successor Administrative Agent appointed pursuant to this Section shall, upon its acceptance of such appointment, become the successor Collateral Agent for all purposes hereunder.

(b) In addition to the foregoing, Collateral Agent may resign at any time by giving prior written notice thereof to Lenders and the Grantors, and Collateral Agent may be removed at any time with or without cause by an instrument or concurrent instruments in writing delivered to the Grantors and Collateral Agent signed by Requisite Lenders. Administrative Agent shall have the right to appoint a financial institution as Collateral Agent hereunder, subject to the reasonable satisfaction of Borrower (other than at any time an Event of Default shall have occurred and then be continuing) and the Requisite Lenders and Collateral Agent's resignation shall become effective on the earliest of (i) 30 days after delivery of the notice of resignation, (ii) the acceptance of such successor Collateral Agent by Borrower (other than at any time an Event of Default shall have occurred and then be continuing) and the Requisite Lenders or (iii) such other date, if any, agreed to by the Requisite Lenders. Upon any such notice of resignation or any such removal, Requisite Lenders shall have the right, upon five Business Days' notice to Administrative Agent, to appoint a successor Collateral Agent. Until a successor Collateral Agent is so appointed by Requisite Lenders or Administrative Agent, any collateral security held by Collateral Agent on behalf of the Lenders or the Issuing Bank under any of the Credit Documents shall continue to be held by the retiring Collateral Agent as nominee until such time as a successor Collateral Agent is appointed. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Collateral Agent hereunder by a successor Collateral Agent, that successor Collateral Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Collateral Agent under this Agreement and the Collateral Documents, and the retiring or removed Collateral Agent under this Agreement shall promptly (i) transfer to such successor Collateral Agent all sums, Securities and other items of Collateral held hereunder or under the Collateral Documents, together with all records and other documents necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of the duties of the successor Collateral Agent under this Agreement and the Collateral Documents, and (ii) execute and deliver to such successor Collateral Agent or otherwise authorize the filing of such amendments to financing statements, and take such other actions, as may be necessary or appropriate in connection with the assignment to such successor Collateral Agent of the security interests created under the Collateral Documents, whereupon such retiring or removed Collateral Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Agreement and the Collateral Documents. After any retiring or removed Collateral Agent's resignation or removal hereunder as the Collateral Agent, the provisions of this Agreement and the Collateral Documents shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it under this Agreement or the Collateral Documents while it was the Collateral Agent hereunder.

(c) Any resignation or removal of GSLP or its successor as Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section shall also constitute the resignation or removal of GSLP or its successor as Swing Line Lender, and any successor Administrative Agent appointed pursuant to this Section shall, upon its acceptance of such appointment, become the successor Swing Line Lender for all purposes hereunder. In such event (i) Borrower shall prepay any outstanding Swing Line Loans made by the retiring or removed Administrative Agent in its capacity as Swing Line Lender, (ii) upon such prepayment, the retiring or removed Administrative Agent and Swing Line Lender shall surrender any Swing Line Note held by it to Borrower

 

-117-


for cancellation, and (iii) Borrower shall issue, if so requested by successor Administrative Agent and Swing Line Loan Lender, a new Swing Line Note to the successor Administrative Agent and Swing Line Lender, in the principal amount of the Swing Line Sublimit then in effect and with other appropriate insertions.

9.8 Collateral Documents and Guaranty.

(a) Agents Under Collateral Documents and Guaranty. Each Secured Party hereby further authorizes Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as applicable, on behalf of and for the benefit of Secured Parties, to be the agent for and representative of Secured Parties with respect to the Guaranty, the Collateral and the Collateral Documents; provided that neither Administrative Agent nor Collateral Agent shall owe any fiduciary duty, duty of loyalty, duty of care, duty of disclosure or any other obligation whatsoever to any holder of Obligations with respect to any Hedge Agreement. Subject to Section 10.5, without further written consent or authorization from any Secured Party, Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as applicable may execute any documents or instruments necessary to (i) in connection with a sale or disposition of assets permitted by this Agreement, release any Lien encumbering any item of Collateral that is the subject of such sale or other disposition of assets or to which Requisite Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 10.5) have otherwise consented or (ii) release any Guarantor from the Guaranty pursuant to Section 7.12 or with respect to which Requisite Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 10.5) have otherwise consented. Collateral Agent further declares that it holds all Australian Collateral acquired by the Collateral Agent after the date hereof on trust for the benefit of the Secured Parties from time to time (it being understood that the provisions of this Section 9 apply to Collateral Agent in its capacity as trustee of such trust).

(b) Right to Realize on Collateral and Enforce Guaranty. Anything contained in any of the Credit Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, Borrower, Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent and each Secured Party hereby agree that (i) no Secured Party shall have any right individually to realize upon any of the Collateral or to enforce the Guaranty, it being understood and agreed that all powers, rights and remedies hereunder may be exercised solely by Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties in accordance with the terms hereof and all powers, rights and remedies under the Collateral Documents may be exercised solely by Collateral Agent, and (ii) in the event of a foreclosure by Collateral Agent on any of the Collateral pursuant to a public or private sale or other disposition, Collateral Agent or any Lender may be the purchaser or licensor of any or all of such Collateral at any such sale or other disposition and Collateral Agent, as agent for and representative of Secured Parties (but not any Lender or Lenders in its or their respective individual capacities unless Requisite Lenders shall otherwise agree in writing) 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 Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any collateral payable by Collateral Agent at such sale or other disposition.

(c) Rights Under Hedge Agreements and Cash Management Agreements. No Hedge Agreement or Cash Management Agreement will create (or be deemed to create) in favor of any Lender Counterparty that is a party thereto any rights in connection with the management or release of any Collateral or of the obligations of any Guarantor under the Credit Documents except as expressly provided in Section 10.5(c)(v) of this Agreement, Section 9.2 of the Second Amended and Restated Pledge and Security Agreement and the analogous sections of any other Collateral Documents. By accepting the benefits of the Collateral, such Lender Counterparty shall be deemed to have appointed Collateral Agent as its agent and agreed to be bound by the Credit Documents as a Secured Party, subject to the limitations set forth in this clause (c).

 

-118-


(d) Release of Collateral and Guarantees, Termination of Credit Documents. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or any other Credit Document, when all Obligations (other than obligations in respect of any Hedge Agreement or Cash Management Agreement) have been paid in full, all Commitments have terminated or expired and no Letter of Credit shall be outstanding (unless the outstanding amounts under all such Letters of Credit have been cash collateralized in a manner reasonably satisfactory to Issuing Bank or, if satisfactory to Issuing Bank in its sole discretion, a backstop Letter of Credit is in place), upon request of Borrower, (i) Collateral Agent shall (without notice to, or vote or consent of, any Lender, or any Affiliate of any Lender or any Lender Counterparty that is a party to any Hedge Agreement or Cash Management Agreement) take such actions as shall be required to release its security interest in all Collateral, and (ii) Administrative Agent shall (without notice to, or vote or consent of, any Lender, or any Affiliate of any Lender or any Lender Counterparty that is a party to any Hedge Agreement or Cash Management Agreement) take such actions as shall be required to release all guarantee obligations provided for in any Credit Document, whether or not on the date of such release there may be outstanding Obligations in respect of Hedge Agreements or Cash Management Agreements (and, subject to the next succeeding sentence, the provisions of Section 7 shall cease to apply). Any such release of guarantee obligations shall be deemed subject to the provision that such guarantee obligations shall be reinstated if after such release any portion of any payment in respect of the Obligations guaranteed thereby shall be rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation or reorganization of Borrower or any Guarantor, or upon or as a result of the appointment of a receiver, intervenor or conservator of, or trustee or similar officer for, Borrower or any Guarantor or any substantial part of its property, or otherwise, all as though such payment had not been made. In addition, upon (a) any disposition of property permitted by this Agreement to a Person that is not a Credit Party, the Liens granted thereon shall be deemed to be automatically released and such property shall automatically revert to the applicable Grantor with no further action on the part of any Person and (b) the consummation of any transaction permitted by the Credit Agreement as a result of which a Guarantor ceases to be a Subsidiary of Borrower, such Guarantor shall automatically be released from its obligations hereunder and under the Collateral Documents and the guaranty and security interest in the Collateral of such Guarantor shall automatically be released.

9.9 Withholding Taxes. To the extent required by any Applicable Law, Administrative Agent may withhold from any payment to any Lender (which term shall include Swing Line Lender and Issuing Bank for purposes of this Section 9.9) an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding tax. If the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority asserts a claim that Administrative Agent did not properly withhold Tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender because the appropriate form was not delivered or was not properly executed or because such Lender failed to notify Administrative Agent of a change in circumstance which rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax ineffective or for any other reason, such Lender shall indemnify fully and hold harmless Administrative Agent (to the extent that the Administrative Agent has not already been reimbursed by Borrower pursuant to Section 2.20 and without limiting or expanding the obligation of Borrower to do so) for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Administrative Agent as Taxes or otherwise, together with all expenses incurred, including legal expenses and any other out-of-pocket expenses, whether or not such Tax was correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant governmental authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The agreements in this Section 9.9 shall survive the resignation and/or replacement of the Administrative Agent, any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Agreement and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all other Obligations.

9.10 Quebec Security. To the extent that any Canadian Credit Party now or in the future is required to grant security pursuant to the laws of the Province of Quebec, each Agent (other than the Collateral Agent) and Lender acting for itself and on behalf of all present and future Affiliates of such Agent

 

-119-


or Lender that are or become a Lender Counterparty, hereby irrevocably authorizes and appoints the Collateral Agent to act as the holder of an irrevocable power of attorney (fondé de pouvoir) (within the meaning of Article 2692 of the Civil Code of Quebec) in order to hold any hypothec granted under the laws of the Province of Quebec as security for any debenture, bond or other title of indebtedness that may be issued by any Canadian Credit Party and to exercise such rights and duties as are conferred upon a fondé de pouvoir under the relevant deed of hypothec and applicable laws (with the power to delegate any such rights or duties). Moreover, in respect of any pledge by any such Canadian Credit Party of any such debenture, bond or other title of indebtedness as security in respect of any Obligations, the Collateral Agent shall also be authorized to hold such debenture, bond or other title of indebtedness as agent, mandatary, custodian and pledgee for the benefit of the Agents, the Lenders and the Lender Counterparties, the whole notwithstanding the provisions of Section 32 of the An Act respecting the Special Powers of Legal Persons (Quebec). The execution prior to the date hereof by the Collateral Agent of any deed of hypothec or other security documents made pursuant to the laws of the Province of Quebec, is hereby ratified and confirmed. Any person who becomes a Lender, Issuing Bank, an Agent or a Lender Counterparty shall be deemed to have consented to and ratified the foregoing appointment of each of the Collateral Agent as fondé de pouvoir, agent, mandatary and custodian on behalf of all Agents, Issuing Banks, Lenders and the Lender Counterparties, including such person. For greater certainty, the Collateral Agent, when acting as the holder of an irrevocable power of attorney (fondé de pouvoir), shall have the same rights, powers, immunities, indemnities and exclusions from liability as are prescribed in favour of the Collateral Agent in this Agreement, which shall apply mutatis mutandis. In the event of the resignation and appointment of a successor Collateral Agent, such successor of the Collateral Agent shall also act as the holder of an irrevocable power of attorney (fondé de pouvoir), and as agent, mandatary and custodian for the purposes set forth above. Without limiting the foregoing, none of such Lenders shall have or be deemed to have a fiduciary relationship with any Lender. The Lenders are not partners or co-venturers, and no Lender shall be liable for the acts or omissions of, or (except as otherwise set forth herein in case of the Administrative Agent) authorized to act for, any other Lender.

SECTION 10. MISCELLANEOUS

10.1 Notices.

(a) Notices Generally. Any notice or other communication herein required or permitted to be given to a Credit Party, Co-Syndication Agent, Collateral Agent, Administrative Agent or Swing Line Lender, shall be sent to such Person's address as set forth on Appendix B or in the other relevant Credit Document, and in the case of Issuing Bank or Lender, the address as indicated on Appendix B or otherwise indicated to Administrative Agent in writing.

Administrative Agent or

 

-120-


Borrower may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it, provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications. Unless Administrative Agent otherwise prescribes, (i) notices and other communications sent to an e-mail address shall be deemed received upon the sender's receipt of an acknowledgement from the intended recipient (such as by the "return receipt requested" function, as available, return e-mail or other written acknowledgement), provided that if such notice or other communication is not sent during the normal business hours of the recipient, such notice or communication shall be deemed to have been sent at the opening of business on the next Business Day for the recipient, and (ii) notices or communications posted to an Internet or intranet website shall be deemed received upon the deemed receipt by the intended recipient at its e-mail address as described in the foregoing clause (i) of notification that such notice or communication is available and identifying the website address therefor.

(2) Each Credit Party understands that the distribution of material through an electronic medium is not necessarily secure and that there are confidentiality and other risks associated with such distribution and agrees and assumes the risks associated with such electronic distribution, except to the extent caused by the willful misconduct or gross negligence of Administrative Agent, as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.

(3) The Platform and any Approved Electronic Communications are provided "as is" and "as available." None of the Agents nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors or representatives (the "Agent Affiliates") warrant the accuracy, adequacy, or completeness of the Approved Electronic Communications or the Platform and each expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in the Platform and the Approved Electronic Communications. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects is made by the Agent Affiliates in connection with the Platform or the Approved Electronic Communications.

(4) Each Credit Party, each Lender, Issuing Bank and each Agent agrees that Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, store any Approved Electronic Communications on the Platform in accordance with Administrative Agent's customary document retention procedures and policies.

Each Public Lender agrees to cause at least one individual at or on behalf of such Public Lender to at all times have selected the "Private Side Information" or similar designation on the content declaration screen of the Platform in order to enable such Public Lender or its delegate, in accordance with such Public Lender's compliance procedures and Applicable Law, including United States federal and state securities laws, to make reference to information that is not made available through the "Public Side Information" portion of the Platform and that may contain Non-Public Information with respect to Borrower, its Subsidiaries or their securities for purposes of Applicable Law, including United States federal or state securities laws.

10.2 Expenses. Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby shall be consummated, Borrower agrees to pay promptly (a) all the actual and reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with the negotiation, preparation and execution of the Credit Documents and any consents, amendments, waivers or other modifications thereto; (b) all the reasonable out-of-pocket costs of furnishing all opinions by counsel for Borrower and the other Credit Parties; (c) the reasonable and documented out-of-pocket fees, expenses and disbursements of counsel to Agents and Issuing Bank in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and administration of the Credit Documents and

 

-121-


any consents, amendments, waivers or other modifications thereto and any other documents or matters requested by Borrower; (d) all the actual costs and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of creating, perfecting, recording, maintaining and preserving Liens in favor of Collateral Agent, for the benefit of Secured Parties, including filing and recording fees, expenses and taxes, stamp or documentary taxes, search fees, title insurance premiums and reasonable fees, expenses and disbursements of counsel to each Agent and of counsel providing any opinions that any Agent or Requisite Lenders may request in respect of the Collateral or the Liens created pursuant to the Collateral Documents; (e) all the actual costs and reasonable out-of-pocket fees, expenses and disbursements of any auditors, accountants, consultants or appraisers; (f) all the actual costs and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including the reasonable fees, expenses and disbursements of any appraisers, consultants, advisors and agents employed or retained by Collateral Agent and its counsel) in connection with the custody or preservation of any of the Collateral; (g) all other actual and reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by each Agent or Issuing Bank in connection with the syndication of the Loans, including for purposes of this Section 10.2, Letters of Credit and Commitments and the transactions contemplated by the Credit Documents and any consents, amendments, waivers or other modifications thereto; and (h) after the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default, all out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs of settlement, incurred by any Agent, Issuing Bank and Lender in enforcing any Obligations of or in collecting any payments due from any Credit Party hereunder or under the other Credit Documents by reason of such Default or Event of Default (including in connection with the sale, lease or license of, collection from, or other realization upon any of the Collateral or the enforcement of the Guaranty) or in connection with any refinancing or restructuring of the credit arrangements provided hereunder in the nature of a "work-out" or pursuant to any insolvency or bankruptcy cases or proceedings.

10.3 Indemnity.

(a) In addition to the payment of expenses pursuant to Section 10.2, whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby shall be consummated, each Credit Party agrees to defend indemnify, pay and hold harmless each Agent, Issuing Bank and Lender and the officers, partners, members, directors, trustees, advisors, employees, agents, sub-agents and Affiliates of each Agent, Issuing Bank and each Lender (each, an "Indemnitee"), from and against any and all Indemnified Liabilities, in all cases, whether or not caused by or arising, in whole or in part, out of the negligence of such Indemnitee; provided that no Credit Party shall have any obligation to any Indemnitee hereunder with respect to any Indemnified Liabilities to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of that Indemnitee, in each case as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, or if such Indemnified Liabilities result from any action, suit or proceeding in contract brought by a Credit Party for direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages) against such Indemnitee for a material breach by such Indemnitee of its obligations under any Credit Document that is determined in favor of such Credit Party by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. To the extent that the undertakings to defend, indemnify, pay and hold harmless set forth in this Section 10.3 apply but are unenforceable in whole or in part because they are violative of any law or public policy, the applicable Credit Party shall contribute the maximum portion that it is permitted to pay and satisfy under Applicable Law to the payment and satisfaction of all Indemnified Liabilities incurred by Indemnitees or any of them.

(b) To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, no Credit Party shall assert, and each Credit Party hereby waives, any claim against each Lender, each Agent, Issuing Bank, Arranger and their respective Affiliates, directors, employees, attorneys, agents or sub-agents, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) (whether or not the claim therefor is based on contract, tort or duty imposed by any applicable legal requirement) arising out of, in connection with, as a result of, or in any way related to, this Agreement or any Credit Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby or referred to herein or therein, the

 

-122-


transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof or any act or omission or event occurring in connection therewith, and each Credit Party hereby waives, releases and agrees not to sue upon any such claim or any such damages, whether or not accrued and whether or not known or suspected to exist in its favor. No Indemnitee referred to above shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Credit Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.

10.4 Set-Off. In addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under Applicable Law and not by way of limitation of any such rights, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default each Lender is hereby authorized by each Credit Party at any time or from time to time subject to the consent of Administrative Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), to set-off and to appropriate and to apply any and all deposits (general or special, including Indebtedness evidenced by certificates of deposit, whether matured or unmatured, but not including trust accounts (in whatever currency)) and any other Indebtedness at any time held or owing by such Lender to or for the credit or the account of any Credit Party (in whatever currency) against and on account of the obligations and liabilities of any Credit Party to such Lender hereunder, the Letters of Credit and participations therein and under the other Credit Documents, including all claims of any nature or description arising out of or connected hereto, the Letters of Credit and participations therein or with any other Credit Document, irrespective of whether or not (a) such Lender shall have made any demand hereunder or (b) the principal of or the interest on the Loans or any amounts in respect of the Letters of Credit or any other amounts due hereunder shall have become due and payable pursuant to Section 2 and although such obligations and liabilities, or any of them, may be contingent or unmatured. The applicable Lender shall notify Borrower and Administrative Agent of such set-off and application, provided that any failure or any delay in giving such notice shall not affect the validity of any such set-off and application under this Section 10.4.

10.5 Amendments and Waivers.

(a) Requisite Lenders' Consent. Subject to the additional requirements of Sections 10.5(b) and 10.5(c), no amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of the Credit Documents, or consent to any departure by any Credit Party therefrom, shall in any event be effective without the written concurrence of the Requisite Lenders; provided, that Administrative Agent may, with the consent of Borrower only, amend, modify or supplement this Agreement to cure any ambiguity, omission, defect or inconsistency, so long as such amendment, modification or supplement does not adversely affect the rights of any Lender or Issuing Bank.

(b) Affected Lenders' Consent. Without the written consent of each Lender that would be directly affected thereby, no amendment, modification, termination, or consent shall be effective if the effect thereof would:

(iii) extend the stated expiration date of any Letter of Credit beyond the Revolving Commitment Termination Date;

(ii) amend, modify, terminate or waive any provision hereof relating to the Swing Line Sublimit or the Swing Line Loans without the consent of Swing Line Lender;

(iii) alter the required application of any repayments or prepayments as between Classes pursuant to Section 2.17 without the consent of Lenders holding more than 50% of the aggregate Tranche A Term Loan Exposure of all Lenders, Tranche B Term Loan Exposure of all Lenders, New Term Loan Exposure of all Lenders, Revolving Exposure of all Lenders, as applicable, of each Class which is being allocated a lesser repayment or prepayment as a result thereof; provided that Requisite Lenders may waive, in whole or in part, any prepayment so long as the application, as between Classes, of any portion of such prepayment which is still required to be made is not altered;

(viii) increase any Delayed Draw Commitment of any Lender over the amount thereof then in effect without the consent of such Lender; provided that no amendment, modification or waiver of any condition precedent, covenant, Default or Event of Default shall constitute an increase in any Delayed Draw Commitment of any Lender; or

(ix) waive any condition to the making of any Revolving Loan or Delayed Draw Term Loan without the consent of a majority in interest of the Lenders holding Revolving Commitments or Delayed Draw Commitments, as applicable.

(d) Notwithstanding Section 10.5(a), any such agreement that shall extend the Revolving Commitment Termination Date or the Term Loan Maturity Date, as applicable, of one or more Lenders (the "Extending Lender") and does not amend any other provision of this Agreement or the Credit Documents other than to change the Applicable Margin of Extending Lenders shall only require the consent of Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Extending Lenders.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, without the consent of any other Person, the applicable Credit Party or Credit Parties and the Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent may (in its or their respective sole discretion, or shall, to the extent required by any Credit Document) enter into any amendment or waiver of any Credit Document, or enter into any new agreement or instrument, to effect the granting, perfection, protection, expansion or enhancement of any security interest in Collateral or additional property to become Collateral for the benefit of the Secured Parties, or as required by local law to give effect to, or protect any security interest for the benefit of the Secured Parties, in any property or so that the security interests therein comply with applicable law.

(e) Execution of Amendments, etc. Administrative Agent may, but shall have no obligation to, with the concurrence of any Lender, execute amendments, modifications, waivers or consents on behalf of such Lender. Any waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it was given. No notice to or demand on any Credit Party in any case shall entitle any Credit Party to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. Any amendment, modification, termination, waiver or consent effected in accordance with this Section 10.5 shall be binding upon each Lender at the time outstanding, each future Lender and, if signed by a Credit Party, on such Credit Party.

This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and the successors and assigns of Lenders.

Each assignment shall be recorded in the Register promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of the fully executed Assignment Agreement and all other necessary documents and approvals, prompt notice thereof shall be provided to Borrower and a copy of such Assignment Agreement shall be maintained, as applicable. The date of such recordation of a transfer shall be referred to herein as the "Assignment Effective Date."

-126-


the aggregate amount of the Tranche B Term Loans, Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans of the assigning Lender) with respect to the assignment of the Tranche B Term Loans, Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans, and $2,500,000 (or such lesser amount as may be agreed to by Borrower and Administrative Agent or as shall constitute the aggregate of the Tranche A Term Loan) with respect to the assignment of Tranche A Term Loans and (B) any required Borrower consent shall be deemed to have been given to any assignment of Loans or Commitments unless it shall object thereto by written notice to Administrative Agent within 5 Business Days after having received notice thereof.

(d) Mechanics. Assignments and assumptions of Loans and Commitments by Lenders shall be effected by manual execution and delivery to Administrative Agent of an Assignment Agreement. Assignments made pursuant to the foregoing provision shall be effective as of the Assignment Effective Date. In connection with all assignments there shall be delivered to Administrative Agent such forms, certificates or other evidence, if any, with respect to United States federal income tax withholding matters as the assignee under such Assignment Agreement may be required to deliver pursuant to Section 2.20(d), together with payment to Administrative Agent of a registration and processing fee of $3,500 (except that no such registration and processing fee shall be payable (x) in connection with an assignment by or to GSLP or any Affiliate thereof or (y) in the case of an assignee which is already a Lender or is an Affiliate or Related Fund of a Lender or a Person under common management with a Lender).

(e) Representations and Warranties of Assignee. Each Lender, upon execution and delivery hereof or upon succeeding to an interest in the Commitments and Loans, as the case may be, represents and warrants as of the Third Restatement Date or as of the Assignment Effective Date that (i) it is an Eligible Assignee; (ii) it has experience and expertise in the making of or investing in commitments or loans such as the applicable Commitments or Loans, as the case may be; and (iii) it will make or invest in, as the case may be, its Commitments or Loans for its own account in the ordinary course and without a view to distribution of such Commitments or Loans within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act or other federal securities laws (it being understood that, subject to the provisions of this Section 10.6, the disposition of such Revolving Commitments or Loans or any interests therein shall at all times remain within its exclusive control).

(f) Effect of Assignment. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 10.6, as of the "Assignment Effective Date" (i) the assignee thereunder shall have the rights and obligations of a "Lender" hereunder to the extent of its interest in the Loans and Commitments so assigned as reflected in the Register and shall thereafter be a party hereto and a "Lender" for all purposes hereof; (ii) the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to the assignee, relinquish its rights (other than any rights which survive the termination hereof under Section 10.8) and be released from its obligations hereunder (and, in the case of an assignment covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender's rights and obligations hereunder, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto on the Assignment Effective Date); provided that anything contained in any of the Credit Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, (y) Issuing Bank shall continue to have all rights and obligations thereof with respect to such Letters of Credit until the cancellation or expiration of such Letters of Credit and the reimbursement of any amounts drawn thereunder and (z) such assigning Lender shall continue to be entitled to the benefit of all indemnities hereunder as specified herein with respect to matters arising out of the prior involvement of such assigning Lender as a Lender hereunder; (iii) the Commitments shall be modified to reflect any Commitment of such assignee and any Revolving Commitment of such assigning Lender, if any; and (iv) if any such assignment occurs after the issuance of any Note hereunder, the assigning Lender shall, upon the effectiveness of such assignment or as promptly thereafter as practicable, surrender its applicable Notes to Administrative Agent for cancellation, and thereupon Borrower shall issue and deliver new Notes, if so requested by the assignee and/or assigning Lender, to such assignee and/or to such assigning Lender, with appropriate insertions, to reflect the new Commitments and/or outstanding Loans of the assignee and/or the assigning Lender.

(g) Participations.

(1) Each Lender shall have the right at any time to sell one or more participations to any Person (other than Borrower, its Subsidiaries or any of its Affiliates) in all or any part of its Commitments or Loans or in any other Obligation.

(2) The holder of any such participation, other than an Affiliate of the Lender granting such participation, shall not be entitled to require such Lender to take or omit to take any action hereunder except that the participation agreement may provide that the Lender must first obtain the participant's consent with respect to any amendment, modification or waiver that would (A) extend the final scheduled maturity of any Loan, Note or Letter of Credit (unless such Letter of Credit is not extended beyond the Revolving Commitment Termination Date) in which such participant is participating, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest or fees thereon (except in connection with a waiver of applicability of any post default increase in interest rates) or reduce the principal amount thereof, or increase the amount of the participant's participation over the amount thereof then in effect (it being understood that a waiver of any Default or Event of Default or of a mandatory reduction in the Commitment shall not constitute a change in the terms of such participation, and that an increase in any Commitment or Loan shall be permitted without the consent of any participant if the participant's participation is not increased as a result thereof), (B) consent to the assignment or transfer by any Credit Party of any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or (C) release all or substantially all of the Collateral under the Collateral Documents (except as expressly provided in the Credit Documents) supporting the Loans hereunder in which such participant is participating. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each participant's interest in the Loans or other obligations under this Agreement (the "Participant Register"). The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive and such Lender shall treat each person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.

(3) Borrower agrees that each participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.18(c), 2.19 and 2.20 to the same extent as if it were a Lender (subject to the requirements and limitations thereof, including the requirement to provide forms under Section 2.20(d)) and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section; provided that a participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.19 or 2.20 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such participant, except to the extent that entitlement to a greater payment results from a change in law that occurs after such Participant acquires the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by law, each participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.4 as though it were a Lender, provided such participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.17 as though it were a Lender.

(h) SPC. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any Lender (a "Granting Lender") may grant to a special purpose funding vehicle identified as such in writing from time to time by the Granting Lender to Administrative Agent and Borrower (an "SPC") the option to provide all or any part of any Loan that such Granting Lender would otherwise be obligated to make pursuant to this Agreement; provided that (i) nothing herein shall constitute a commitment by any SPC to fund any Loan, and (ii) if an SPC elects not to exercise such option or otherwise fails to make all or any part of such Loan, the Granting Lender shall be obligated to make such Loan pursuant to the terms hereof. Each party hereto hereby agrees that (i) an SPC shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.18(c), 2.19 and 2.20 to

 

-128-


the same extent as if it were a Lender (subject to the requirements and limitations thereof, including the requirement to provide forms under Section 2.20(d)) and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section; provided that an SPC shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.19 or 2.20 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the Loans subject to such option, except to the extent that entitlement to a greater payment results from a change in law that occurs after such SPC acquires such option, (ii) no SPC shall be liable for any indemnity or similar payment obligation under this Agreement for which a Lender would be liable, and (iii) the Granting Lender shall for all purposes, including the approval of any amendment, waiver or other modification of any provision of any Credit Document, remain the lender of record hereunder. The making of a Loan by an SPC hereunder shall utilize the Commitment of the Granting Lender to the same extent, and as if, such Loan were made by such Granting Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any SPC may (i) with notice to, but without prior consent of Borrower and Administrative Agent and with the payment of a processing fee of $3,500, assign all or any portion of its right to receive payment with respect to any Loan to the Granting Lender and (ii) disclose on a confidential basis any non-public information relating to its funding of Loans to any rating agency, commercial paper dealer or provider of any surety or Guarantee or credit or liquidity enhancement to such SPC.

(i) Certain Other Assignments and Participations. In addition to any other assignment or participation permitted pursuant to this Section 10.6, any Lender may assign and/or pledge all or any portion of its Loans, the other Obligations owed by or to such Lender, and its Notes, if any, to secure obligations of such Lender including any Federal Reserve Bank or any central bank having jurisdiction over such Lender as collateral security pursuant to Regulation A of the Board of Governors and any operating circular issued by such Federal Reserve Bank or such other central bank having jurisdiction over such Lender; provided that no Lender, as between Borrower and such Lender, shall be relieved of any of its obligations hereunder as a result of any such assignment and pledge, and provided further that in no event shall the applicable Federal Reserve Bank, pledgee or trustee be considered to be a "Lender" or be entitled to require the assigning Lender to take or omit to take any action hereunder.

10.7 Independence of Covenants. All covenants hereunder shall be given independent effect so that if a particular action or condition is not permitted by any of such covenants, the fact that it would be permitted by an exception to, or would otherwise be within the limitations of, another covenant shall not avoid the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default if such action is taken or condition exists.

10.8 Survival of Representations, Warranties and Agreements. All representations, warranties and agreements made herein shall survive the execution and delivery hereof and the making of any Credit Extension. Notwithstanding anything herein or implied by law to the contrary, the agreements of each Credit Party set forth in Sections 2.18(c), 2.19, 2.20, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4 and the agreements of Lenders set forth in Sections 2.17, 9.3(b) and 9.6 shall survive the payment of the Loans, the cancellation or expiration of the Letters of Credit and the reimbursement of any amounts drawn thereunder, and the termination hereof.

10.9 No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. No failure or delay on the part of any Agent or any Lender in the exercise of any power, right or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document shall impair such power, right or privilege or be construed to be a waiver of any default or acquiescence therein, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or privilege preclude other or further exercise thereof or of any other power, right or privilege. The rights, powers and remedies given to each Agent and each Lender hereby are cumulative and shall be in addition to and independent of all rights, powers and remedies existing by virtue of any statute or rule of law or in any of the other Credit Documents or any of the Hedge Agreements or Cash Management Agreements. Any forbearance or failure to exercise, and any delay in exercising, any right, power or remedy hereunder shall not impair any such right, power or remedy or be construed to be a waiver thereof, nor shall it preclude the further exercise of any such right, power or remedy.

 

-129-


10.10 Marshalling; Payments Set Aside. Neither any Agent nor any Lender shall be under any obligation to marshal any assets in favor of any Credit Party or any other Person or against or in payment of any or all of the Obligations. To the extent that any Credit Party makes a payment or payments to Administrative Agent or Lenders (or to Administrative Agent, on behalf of Lenders), or any Agent or Lenders enforce any security interests or exercise their rights of set-off, and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or set-off or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside and/or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any bankruptcy law, any other state, provincial, territorial or federal law, common law or any equitable cause, then, to the extent of such recovery, the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied, and all Liens, rights and remedies therefor or related thereto, shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment or payments had not been made or such enforcement or set-off had not occurred.

10.11 Severability. In case any provision in or obligation hereunder or under any other Credit Document shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions or obligations, or of such provision or obligation in any other jurisdiction, shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

10.12 Obligations Several; Independent Nature of Lenders' Rights. The obligations of Lenders hereunder are several and no Lender shall be responsible for the obligations or Commitment of any other Lender hereunder. Nothing contained herein or in any other Credit Document, and no action taken by Lenders pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute Lenders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity. The amounts payable at any time hereunder to each Lender shall be a separate and independent debt, and each Lender shall be entitled to protect and enforce its rights arising out hereof and it shall not be necessary for any other Lender to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

10.13 Headings. Section headings herein are included herein for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part hereof for any other purpose or be given any substantive effect.

Each Agent and each Lender (which term shall for the purposes of this Section 10.17 include the Issuing Bank) shall hold all Non-Public Information regarding Borrower and its Subsidiaries and their businesses identified as such by Borrower or such Subsidiary (or which is reasonably apparent to be of a confidential nature, even if not so identified) and obtained by such Agent and such Lender pursuant to the requirements hereof in accordance with such Agent's and such Lender's customary procedures for handling confidential information of such nature, it being understood and agreed by

 

-131-


Borrower that, in any event, the Administrative Agent may disclose such information to the Lenders and each Agent and each Lender may make (i) disclosures of such information to Affiliates of such Lender and to their respective agents and advisors (and to other Persons authorized by a Lender or Agent to organize, present or disseminate such information in connection with disclosures otherwise made in accordance with this Section 10.17), (ii) disclosures of such information reasonably required by any bona fide or potential assignee, transferee or participant in connection with the contemplated assignment, transfer or participation of any Loans or any participations therein or by any direct or indirect contractual counterparties (or the professional advisors thereto) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to Borrower and its obligations (provided that such assignees, transferees, participants, counterparties and advisors are advised of and agree to be bound by either the provisions of this Section 10.17 or other provisions at least as restrictive as this Section 10.17), (iii) disclosure to any rating agency when required by it, provided that, prior to any disclosure, such rating agency shall undertake in writing to preserve the confidentiality of any confidential information relating to Credit Parties received by it from any Agent or any Lender, (iv) disclosures necessary in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or under any other Credit Document, (v) disclosures required or requested by any Governmental Authority or pursuant to legal or judicial process; provided that, unless specifically prohibited by Applicable Law or court order, each Lender and each Agent shall make reasonable efforts to notify Borrower of any request by any Governmental Authority or representative thereof (other than any such request in connection with any examination of the financial condition or other routine examination of such Lender by such Governmental Authority) for disclosure of any such Non-Public Information reasonably in advance of disclosure of such information (and each Agent and Lender shall cooperate with Borrower and its Subsidiaries (at the sole cost and expense of Borrower and its Subsidiaries) to limit any such disclosure) and (vi) disclosures to any other Person with the written consent of the Borrower. In addition, each Agent and each Lender may disclose the existence of this Agreement and the information about this Agreement to service providers to Agents and Lenders in connection with the administration and management of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents.

10.18 Usury Savings Clause. If any provision of this Agreement or of any of the other Credit Documents would obligate any Credit Party to make any payment of interest or other amount payable to any Agent or any Lender in an amount or calculated at a rate which would be prohibited by law or would result in a receipt by such Agent or Lender of interest at a criminal rate (as such terms are construed under the Criminal Code (Canada)) or in excess of the Highest Lawful Rate, then notwithstanding such provisions, such amount or rate shall be deemed to have been adjusted with retroactive effect to the maximum amount or rate of interest, as the case may be, as would not be so prohibited by law or so result in a receipt by such Agent or such Lender of interest at a criminal rate, such adjustment to be effected, to the extent necessary, as follows: (1) firstly, by reducing the amount or rate of interest required to be paid to such Agent or such Lender under Section 2.8, and (2) thereafter, by reducing any fees, commissions, premiums and other amounts required to be paid to such Agent or such Lender which would constitute "interest" for purposes of Section 347 of the Criminal Code (Canada) or for the purposes of determining the Highest Lawful Rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is the intention of Lenders and Borrower to conform strictly to any applicable usury laws, and after giving effect to all adjustments contemplated in the preceding sentence, if an Agent or Lender shall have received an amount in excess of the maximum permitted by that section of the Criminal Code (Canada) or by application of the Highest Lawful Rate, such Credit Party shall be entitled, by notice in writing to such Agent or such Lender, to obtain reimbursement from such Agent or such Lender in an amount equal to such excess and, pending such reimbursement, such amount shall be deemed to be an amount payable by such Agent or such Lender to such Credit Party. Any amount or rate of interest referred to in this Section 10.18 shall be determined in accordance with GAAP as an effective annual rate of interest over the term that the applicable Loan remains outstanding on the assumption that any charges, fees or expenses that fall within the meaning of "interest" (as defined in the Criminal Code (Canada) or for the purposes of determining the Highest Lawful Rate) shall, if they relate to a specific period of time, be prorated over that period of time and otherwise be prorated

 

-132-


over the period from the Third Restatement Date to the later of the Revolving Commitment Termination Date or the Term Loan Commitment Termination Date and, in the event of a dispute, a certificate of an actuary appointed by Administrative Agent shall be conclusive for the purposes of such determination absent manifest error.

10.19 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered shall be deemed an original, but all such counterparts together shall constitute but one and the same instrument. Delivery of an executed counterpart to this Agreement by facsimile transmission or other electronic transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually signed counterpart of this Agreement.

10.20 Effectiveness; Entire Agreement. This Agreement shall become effective upon the execution of a counterpart hereof by each of the parties hereto and receipt by Borrower and Administrative Agent of written notification of such execution and authorization of delivery thereof.

10.21 PATRIOT Act; PCTFA. Each Lender to whom the PATRIOT Act applies and Administrative Agent (for itself and not on behalf of any Lender) hereby notifies each Credit Party that pursuant to the requirements of the PATRIOT Act and the PCTFA, it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each Credit Party, which information includes the name and address of each Credit Party and other information that will allow such Lender or Administrative Agent, as applicable, to identify such Credit Party in accordance with those Acts.

10.22 Electronic Execution of Assignments. The words "execution," "signed," "signature," and words of like import in any Assignment Agreement shall be deemed to include electronic signatures or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any Applicable Law, including the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, the New York State Electronic Signatures and Records Act, or any other similar state laws based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, the Commerce Act (Ontario) or any similar provincial, territorial or federal laws.

10.23 No Fiduciary Duty. Each Agent, each Lender and their Affiliates (collectively, solely for purposes of this paragraph, the "Lenders") may have economic interests that conflict with those of Borrower, its stockholders and/or its affiliates. Borrower agrees that nothing in the Credit Documents or otherwise will be deemed to create an advisory, fiduciary or agency relationship or fiduciary or other implied duty between any Lender, on the one hand, and Borrower, its stockholders or its affiliates, on the other. The Credit Parties acknowledge and agree that (i) the transactions contemplated by the Credit Documents (including the exercise of rights and remedies hereunder and thereunder) are arm's-length commercial transactions between the Lenders, on the one hand, and Borrower, on the other, and (ii) in connection therewith and with the process leading thereto, (x) no Lender has assumed an advisory or fiduciary responsibility in favor of Borrower, its stockholders or its affiliates with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby (or the exercise of rights or remedies with respect thereto) or the process leading thereto (irrespective of whether any Lender has advised, is currently advising or will advise Borrower, its stockholders or its Affiliates on other matters) or any other obligation to Borrower except the obligations expressly set forth in the Credit Documents and (y) each Lender is acting solely as principal and not as the agent or fiduciary of Borrower, its management, stockholders, creditors or any other Person. Borrower has consulted its own legal and financial advisors to the extent it deemed appropriate and that it is responsible for making its own independent judgment with respect to such transactions and the process leading thereto. Borrower agrees that it will not claim that any Lender has rendered advisory services of any nature or respect, or owes a fiduciary or similar duty to Borrower, in connection with such transaction or the process leading thereto.

10.24 Judgment Currency.

(a) If, for the purpose of obtaining or enforcing judgment against any Credit Party in any court in any jurisdiction, it becomes necessary to convert into any other currency (such other currency being hereinafter in this Section 10.24 referred to as the "Judgment Currency") an amount due under any Credit Document in any currency (the "Obligation Currency") other than the Judgment Currency, the conversion shall be made at the rate of exchange prevailing on the Business Day immediately preceding the date of actual payment of the amount due, in the case of any proceeding in the courts of any jurisdiction that will give effect to such conversion being made on such date, or the date on which the judgment is given, in the case of any proceeding in the courts of any other jurisdiction (the applicable date as of which such conversion is made pursuant to this Section 10.24 being hereinafter in this Section 10.24 referred to as the "Judgment Conversion Date").

(b) If, in the case of any proceeding in the court of any jurisdiction referred to in Section 10.24(a), there is a change in the rate of exchange prevailing between the Judgment Conversion Date and the date of actual receipt for value of the amount due, then the applicable Credit Party or Credit Parties shall pay such additional amount (if any, but in any event not a lesser amount) as may be necessary to ensure that the amount actually received in the Judgment Currency, when converted at the rate of exchange prevailing on the date of payment, will provide the amount of the Obligation Currency which could have been purchased with the amount of the Judgment Currency stipulated in the judgment or judicial order at the rate of exchange prevailing on the Judgment Conversion Date. Any amount due from any Credit Party under this Section 10.24(b) shall be due as a separate debt and shall not be affected by judgment being obtained for any other amounts due under or in respect of any of the Credit Documents.

(c) The term "rate of exchange" in this Section 10.24 means the rate of exchange at which Administrative Agent, on the relevant date at or about 12:00 noon (New York time), would be prepared to sell, in accordance with Administrative Agent's normal course foreign currency exchange practices, the Obligation Currency against the Judgment Currency.

10.25 Joint and Several Liability. Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein or in any other Credit Documents, if a "secured creditor" (as that term is defined under the BIA) is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction not to include a Person to whom obligations are owed on a joint or joint and several basis, then any Canadian Credit Party's Obligations (and the Obligations of each other Credit Party with respect thereto), to the extent such Obligations are secured, only shall be several obligations and not joint or joint and several obligations.

10.26 Advice of Counsel; No Strict Construction. Each of the parties represents to each other party hereto that it has discussed this Agreement and the other Credit Documents with its counsel. The parties hereto have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement and each of the other Credit Documents shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties hereto and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any provisions of this Agreement or any other Credit Document.

10.27 Day Not a Business Day. In the event that any day on or before which any action, calculation, determination or allocation is required to be taken hereunder is not a Business Day, then such action, calculation, determination or allocation shall be required to be taken at the requisite time on or before the first succeeding day that is a Business Day thereafter, unless such day is in the next calendar month, in which case such action, calculation, determination or allocation shall be required to be taken at the requisite time on the first preceding day that is a Business Day.

10.28 Limitations Act, 2002. Each of the parties hereto agrees that any and all limitation periods provided for in the Limitations Act, 2002 (Ontario) or any other Applicable Law that provides for or relates to limitation periods, shall be excluded from application to the Obligations and any undertaking, covenant, indemnity or other agreement of any Credit Party provided for in any Credit Document to which it is a party in respect thereof, in each case to fullest extent permitted by such Act or other Applicable Law.

[            ] hereby certifies that (i) [he]/[she] is the chief financial officer of Borrower, (ii) [he]/[she] is knowledgeable of the finances, accounting, properties, businesses and assets of Borrower and each Credit Party that is a Subsidiary of Borrower, (iii) [he]/[she] has made such investigation and inquiries, including but not limited to consultation with other officers of the Credit Parties responsible for financial and accounting functions concerning contingent liabilities, as [he]/[she] has deemed necessary and prudent to enable [him]/[her] to express an informed opinion as to matters referred to herein and (iv) [he]/[she] has reviewed the consolidated financial statements referred to in Section 4.7 of the Credit Agreement and the Projections referred to in Section 4.8 of the Credit Agreement, and that, as such, [he]/[she] is authorized to execute and deliver this Certificate on behalf of Borrower.

The undersigned hereby further certifies, in [his]/[her] capacity as chief financial officer of Borrower, and not in [his]/[her] individual capacity, that as of the date hereof:


  a. the sum of Borrower's and Credit Parties' debt, on a consolidated basis, (including contingent liabilities) does not exceed the present fair saleable value of Borrower's and Credit Parties' present assets, on a consolidated basis;

  b. Borrower's and Credit Parties' capital, on a consolidated basis, is not unreasonably small in relation to their business as contemplated on the date hereof and reflected in the Projections or with respect to any transaction contemplated to be undertaken after the date hereof; and

This Certificate is being delivered by the undersigned only in [his]/[her] capacity as chief financial officer of Borrower and not individually and the undersigned shall have no personal liability to the Agents, the Arrangers or the Lenders with respect thereto.

AFFILIATE SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT

THIS AFFILIATE SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, this "Agreement"), dated as of June 29, 2011, made by each of the undersigned entities listed on the signature pages hereto under the caption (i) "Payors" and any additional entity that may become a Payor hereunder pursuant to a duly executed signature page hereto and agreeing to be bound hereby (each, in such capacity, a "Payor") and (ii) "Payee" and any additional entity that may become a Payee hereunder pursuant to a duly executed signature page hereto and agreeing to be bound hereby (each, in such capacity, a "Payee").

This Agreement constitutes the subordination agreement referred to in Section 6.1(c)(ii) of the Credit and Guaranty Agreement, dated as of June 29, 2011 (as it may be amended, restated, replaced, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the "Credit Agreement"; the terms defined therein and not otherwise defined herein being used herein as therein defined), among Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, a Delaware corporation ("Borrower"), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc., a corporation continued under the federal laws of Canada ("Parent"), certain Subsidiaries of Parent, as Guarantors, the Lenders party thereto from time to time and Goldman Sachs Lending Partners LLC ("GSLP"), as Sole Lead Arranger, Sole Bookrunner, Syndication Agent, Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, and is subject to the terms thereof. Each Payee (as defined below) hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Administrative Agent may exercise all rights provided in the Credit Agreement and the Pledge and Security Agreement with respect to this Agreement.

Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, any indebtedness owing from time to time in respect of all loans or advances (including, without limitation, pursuant to guarantees therefor or security therefor) which are owed by any Payor to any Payee (such indebtedness, the "Subordinated Intercompany Obligations") shall be subordinate and junior in right of payment, to the extent and in the manner hereinafter set forth, to all Obligations of such Payor under the Credit Agreement, including, without limitation, where applicable, under such Payor's guarantee of the Obligations under the Credit Agreement; provided that such Payor may make payments to the applicable Payee unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing (such Obligations and other indebtedness and obligations in connection with any renewal, refunding, restructuring or refinancing thereof, including interest thereon accruing after the commencement of any proceedings referred to in clause (i) below, whether or not such interest is an allowed claim in such proceeding, being hereinafter collectively referred to as "Senior Indebtedness"):

(i) In the event of any insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings, and any receivership, liquidation, reorganization or other similar proceedings in connection therewith, relative to any Payor or to its creditors, as such, or to its property, and in the event of any proceedings for voluntary liquidation, dissolution or other winding up of such Payor (except as otherwise expressly permitted by the Credit Agreement), whether or not involving insolvency or bankruptcy, then (x) the holders of Senior Indebtedness (other than unasserted indemnification obligations and unasserted expense reimbursement obligations) shall be paid in full in cash in respect of all amounts constituting Senior Indebtedness before any Payee is entitled to receive (whether directly or indirectly), or make any demands for, any payment on account of this Agreement from such Payor and (y) until the holders of Senior Indebtedness (other than unasserted indemnification obligations and unasserted expense reimbursement obligations) are paid in full in cash in respect of all amounts constituting Senior Indebtedness, any payment or distribution to which such Payee

 

EXHIBIT J-2-1


would otherwise be entitled from such Payor (other than debt securities of such Payor that are subordinated, to at least the same extent as the Subordinated Intercompany Obligations, to the payment of all Senior Indebtedness then outstanding (such securities being hereinafter referred to as "Restructured Debt Securities")) shall be made to the holders of Senior Indebtedness;

(ii) if any Default occurs and is continuing with respect to any Senior Indebtedness (including any Default under the Credit Agreement), then no payment or distribution of any kind or character shall be made by or on behalf of any Payor or any other Person on its behalf with respect to the Subordinated Intercompany Obligations until the holders of Senior Indebtedness are paid in full in cash in respect of all amounts constituting Senior Indebtedness (other than unasserted indemnification obligations and unasserted expense reimbursement obligations); and

(iii) if any payment or distribution of any character, whether in cash, securities or other property (other than Restructured Debt Securities), in respect of the Subordinated Intercompany Obligations shall (despite these subordination provisions) be received by any Payee in violation of clause (i) or (ii) before all Senior Indebtedness shall have been paid in full in cash, such payment or distribution shall be held in trust for the benefit of, and shall be paid over or delivered to, the holders of Senior Indebtedness (or their representatives), ratably according to the respective aggregate amounts remaining unpaid thereon, to the extent necessary to pay all Senior Indebtedness (other than unasserted indemnification obligations and unasserted expense reimbursement obligations) in full in cash.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, no present or future holder of Senior Indebtedness shall be prejudiced in its right to enforce the subordination of this Agreement by any act or failure to act on the part of any Payor or by any act or failure to act on the part of such holder or any trustee or agent for such holder. Each Payee and each Payor hereby agree that the subordination of the Subordinated Intercompany Obligations is for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and the Administrative Agent and the Lenders are obligees under this Agreement to the same extent as if their names were written herein as such and the Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the itself and the Lenders, proceed to enforce the subordination provisions herein.

Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to or will impair, as between each Payor and each Payee, the obligations of such Payor, which are absolute and unconditional, to pay to such Payee the principal of and interest on the Subordinated Intercompany Obligations as and when due and payable in accordance with its terms, or is intended to or will affect the relative rights of such Payee and other creditors of such Payor other than the holders of Senior Indebtedness.

Subject to the prior payment in full in cash of the Senior Indebtedness (other than unasserted indemnification obligations and unasserted expense reimbursement obligations), each applicable Payee shall be subrogated to the rights of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders to receive payments or distributions in cash, securities or other property of each applicable Payor applicable to the Senior Indebtedness until all amounts owing on the Senior Indebtedness (other than unasserted indemnification obligations and unasserted expense reimbursement obligations) shall be paid in full in cash, and, as between and among a Payor, its creditors (other than the Lenders) and the applicable Payees, no such payment or distribution made to the Administrative Agent or the Lenders by virtue of this Agreement that otherwise would have been made to any applicable Payee shall be deemed to be a payment by the applicable Payor on account of the Subordinated Intercompany Obligations, it being understood that the provisions of this paragraph are intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights of the Payees, on the one hand, and Administrative Agent and the Lenders, on the other hand.

 

EXHIBIT J-2-2


No amendment, modification, supplement, termination or waiver of or to any provision hereof, nor consent to any departure by any Payor or Payee therefrom, shall be effective unless the same shall be consented to in writing by the Administrative Agent and made in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement. Any provision hereof which is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof or affecting the validity, legality or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Supplement should be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein and in the Affiliate Subordination Agreement shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby (it being understood that the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not in and of itself affect the validity of such provision in any other jurisdiction). The parties hereto shall endeavor in good-faith negotiations to replace the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions.
