Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Amendment of Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility

On October 31, 2018, AmerisourceBergen Corporation (the "Company") and its subsidiaries BP Pharmaceuticals Laboratories Unlimited Company, Centaur Services Limited and Innomar Strategies Inc. entered into a Seventh Amendment and Restatement Agreement (the "Amendment Agreement") to amend and restate the Credit Agreement, dated as of March 18, 2011, as amended, among the Company, the borrowing subsidiaries party thereto, the lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, pursuant to which the Company and such subsidiaries obtained a senior unsecured multi-currency revolving credit facility (the "Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility").

Pursuant to the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility, the Company may borrow up to US$1.4 billion. The Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility was amended to, among other things, extend the maturity date of the facility to October 31, 2023 and modify certain restrictive covenants, including modifications to allow for indebtedness of foreign subsidiaries (subject to a limitation based on the consolidated tangible assets of foreign subsidiaries). Interest on borrowings under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility accrues at specified rates based on the Company’s public debt ratings by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. and Fitch, Inc. and ranges from 70 basis points to 110 basis points over the Canadian Dealer Offered Rate, LIBOR, the Euro Overnight Rate and the Bankers Acceptance Stamping Fee, as applicable, and 0 basis points to 10 basis points over the alternate base rate and Canadian prime rate, as applicable, in each case, as determined in accordance with the provisions of the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility. The Company has agreed to pay facility fees to maintain the availability under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility at specified rates based on its public debt ratings, ranging from 5 basis points to 15 basis points, annually, of the total commitments of the lenders thereunder. The Company has the right to prepay borrowings under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility at any time, in whole or in part and without premium or penalty (other than, if applicable, any breakage costs), provided that the amount of any such prepayment meets certain minimum thresholds. The Company may also choose to reduce its commitments under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility at any time. The Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility contains affirmative, negative, and financial covenants and includes limitations on, among other things, indebtedness of subsidiaries, liens, fundamental changes and asset sales. The Company may obtain letters of credit under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility up to a maximum amount of US$75 million. The amount of the Company’s outstanding letters of credit reduces availability under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility. The Company may use the funds provided under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility for general corporate purposes of the Company and its subsidiaries. The Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility contains certain representations, warranties and events of default (which are, in some cases, subject to certain exceptions, thresholds and grace periods) including, but not limited to, non-payment of principal and interest, failure to perform or observe covenants, breaches of representations and warranties and certain bankruptcy-related events.

The foregoing description of the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment Agreement (including the amended and restated credit agreement attached as Exhibit A thereto), which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

Refinancing of 2015 Term Loans

On October 31, 2018, the Company entered into a Term Credit Agreement (the “Term Credit Agreement”), among the Company, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, and certain other lenders party thereto.

Pursuant to the Term Credit Agreement, the lenders made loans to the Company in an aggregate principal amount of US$400 million. Such principal amount was used to pay off and terminate that certain Term Loan Credit Agreement, as amended, dated February 9, 2015, by and among the Company, Bank of America, N.A. and the lenders party thereto and that certain Term Loan Credit Agreement, as amended, dated November 13, 2015, by and among the Company, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and the lenders party thereto (together, the “2015 Term Credit Agreements”). The terms of the Term Credit Agreement are substantially similar to the 2015 Term Credit Agreements, but with a reduced interest rate and with certain changes made to conform to corresponding amendments to the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility.

The foregoing description of the Term Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Term Credit Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

Certain of the lenders under the Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Credit Agreement, and their affiliates, have various relationships with the Company and have in the past provided, and may in the future provide,





investment banking, commercial banking, derivative transactions and financial advisory services to the Company and its affiliates in the ordinary course of business for which they have received and may continue to receive fees and commissions. In particular, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, an affiliate of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, an affiliate of Bank of America, N.A., and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, an affiliate of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., have served as joint book-running managers, and certain affiliates of the other lenders have served as underwriters, in connection with past senior note offerings by the Company, and such affiliates may serve similar roles in future securities offerings by the Company. In addition, certain of the lenders serve various roles in connection with a $1,450 million receivables securitization facility to which the Company’s subsidiaries, AmerisourceBergen Drug Corporation ("ABDC") and Amerisource Receivables Financial Corporation ("ARFC"), are a party and pursuant to which accounts receivables are sold on a revolving basis to ARFC, a special purpose entity. MUFG Bank, Ltd. (f/k/a the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.) serves as administrator and a purchaser under the program and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. serves as a purchaser under the program. Certain of the other lenders or their affiliates also serve as lenders or purchasers under the securitization facility.

Amendment of Securitization Facility
 
On October 31, 2018, subsidiaries of the Company entered into a Thirteenth Amendment to Amended and Restated Receivables Purchase Agreement (the “Thirteenth Amendment”), among ARFC, as seller, ABDC, as servicer, the Purchaser Agents and Purchasers party thereto, and MUFG Bank, Ltd. (f/k/a the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.), as administrator.

The Thirteenth Amendment:

Extended the scheduled facility termination date from November 18, 2019 to October 29, 2021;

Conformed certain of the representations and warranties, covenants, cross-defaults thresholds and definitions in the Amended and Restated Receivables Purchase Agreement to those set forth in the Company's Multi-Currency Revolving Credit Facility; and

Made certain other technical changes.
 
The securitization facility is available to provide additional liquidity and funding for the ongoing business needs of the Company and its subsidiaries. Availability under the securitization facility is based on the accounts receivables originated by ABDC from the sale of pharmaceuticals and other related services. Pursuant to the securitization facility, ABDC sells its accounts receivables to ARFC. ARFC may sell interests in the accounts receivables purchased from ABDC to the various purchaser groups party to the securitization facility, paying program fees on the amount of receivables interests purchased under the facility. The securitization facility has a base limit of US$1,450 million, with an option to increase the commitments of the participating banks, subject to their approval, by an additional US$250 million for seasonal needs during the December and March quarters. The Company serves as the performance guarantor of ABDC’s obligations as originator and servicer under the securitization facility.

The foregoing description of the Thirteenth Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Thirteenth Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.

44

issued, amended to increase its face amount, extended or renewed and as of the last Business Day of each subsequent calendar quarter, in each case using the Exchange Rate for such currency in relation to US Dollars in effect on the date that is two Business Days prior to the date on which such Letter of Credit is issued, amended to increase its face amount, extended or renewed and as of the last Business Day of such subsequent calendar quarter, as the case may be, and each such amount shall, except as provided below in this Section, be the US Dollar Equivalent of such Letter of Credit until the next required calculation thereof pursuant to this sentence; provided that the Administrative Agent shall in addition determine the US Dollar Equivalent of any Letter of Credit denominated in any currency other than US Dollars as provided in Sections 2.05(e) and 2.05(o).

SECTION 1.06. Interest Rates; LIBOR Notification. The interest rate on LIBOR Loans is determined by reference to the LIBO Rate, which is derived from the London interbank offered rate. The London interbank offered rate is intended to represent the rate at which contributing banks may obtain short-term borrowings from each other in the London interbank market. In July 2017, the UK Financial Conduct Authority announced that, after the end of 2021, it would no longer persuade or compel contributing banks to make rate submissions to the ICE Benchmark Administration (together with any successor to the ICE Benchmark Administrator, the “IBA”) for purposes of the IBA setting the London interbank offered rate. As a result, it is possible that commencing in 2022, the London



45

interbank offered rate may no longer be available or may no longer be deemed an appropriate reference rate upon which to determine the interest rate on LIBOR Loans. In light of this eventuality, public and private sector industry initiatives are currently underway to identify new or alternative reference rates to be used in place of the London interbank offered rate. In the event that the London interbank offered rate is no longer available or in certain other circumstances as set forth in Section 2.14(b), Section 2.14(b) provides a mechanism for determining an alternative rate of interest. The Administrative Agent will notify the Company, pursuant to Section 2.14, in advance of any change to the reference rate upon which the interest rate on LIBOR Loans is based. However, the Administrative Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for, and shall not have any liability with respect to, the administration, submission or any other matter related to the London interbank offered rate or other rates in the definition of Screen Rate or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate thereof, including without limitation, whether the composition or characteristics of any such alternative, successor or replacement reference rate, as it may or may not be adjusted pursuant to Section 2.14(b), will be similar to, or produce the same value or economic equivalence of, the LIBO Rate or have the same volume or liquidity as did the London interbank offered rate prior to its discontinuance or unavailability.
SECTION 1.07. Other Interpretive Provisions. With reference to this Agreement and each other Loan Document, unless otherwise specified herein or in such other Loan Document, any reference to Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Limited is a reference to its successor in title Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Designated Activity Company (including, without limitation, its branches) pursuant to and with effect from the merger between Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Limited and Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Designated Activity Company that takes effect in accordance with Chapter II, Title II of Directive (EU) 2017/1132 (which repeals and codifies the Cross-Border Mergers Directive (2005/56/EC)) as implemented in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document, a transfer of rights and obligations from Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Limited to Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Designated Activity Company pursuant to such merger shall be permitted.

Any Borrowing Request that shall fail to specify any of the information required by the preceding provisions of this paragraph may be rejected by the Administrative Agent if such failure is not corrected promptly after the Administrative Agent shall give written or telephonic notice thereof to the applicable Borrower or the Company and, if so rejected, will be of no force or effect. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender that will make a Loan as part of the requested Borrowing of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.
SECTION 2.04. Swingline Loans. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Swingline Lender agrees to make (i) in the case of JPMorgan, (A) Tranche One Swingline Loans and Tranche Two Swingline Loans to any UK Borrowing Subsidiary or Irish Borrowing Subsidiary denominated in Sterling or (B) Tranche One Swingline Loans and Tranche Two Swingline Loans to any Borrower that is not a US Borrowing Subsidiary denominated in Euro, and (ii) in the case of any other Swingline Lender, such Swingline Loans as it shall agree to make pursuant to its Swingline Agreement, in each case from time to time during the Availability Period, in an aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding that will not result in (1) the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Swingline Loans denominated in Sterling exceeding £10,000,000, (2) the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Swingline Loans denominated in Euro exceeding €10,000,000, (3) the Aggregate Tranche One Revolving Credit Exposure exceeding the aggregate Tranche One Commitments, (4) the Tranche One Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender (including a Swingline Lender) exceeding its Tranche One Commitment, (5) the Aggregate Tranche Two Revolving Credit Exposure exceeding the aggregate Tranche Two Commitments or (6) the Tranche Two Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender (including a Swingline Lender) exceeding its Tranche Two Commitment; provided that no Swingline Lender shall be required to make a Swingline Loan to refinance an outstanding Swingline Loan. Within the foregoing limits and subject to the terms and



49

conditions set forth herein, the Company and the Borrowing Subsidiaries may borrow, prepay and reborrow Swingline Loans. The failure of any Swingline Lender to make any Swingline Loan required to be made by it shall not relieve any other Swingline Lender of its obligations hereunder; provided that the obligations of the Swingline Lenders to make Swingline Loans are several and not joint and no Swingline Lender shall be responsible for any other Swingline Lender’s failure to make Swingline Loans as required.
(b) To request a Swingline Borrowing, the applicable Borrower (or the Company on its behalf) shall submit to the Administrative Agent, by fax or email (in .pdf or .tif format), a written notice signed by a Financial Officer of the applicable Borrower (or, if applicable, of the Company), not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, on the day of such proposed Swingline Borrowing. Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the requested date (which shall be a Business Day) and amount of the requested Swingline Borrowing and whether such Swingline Borrowing is to be a Tranche One Swingline Borrowing or a Tranche Two Swingline Borrowing. The applicable Swingline Lender shall make its Swingline Loan available to the applicable Borrower by means of a credit to the Applicable Funding Account (or, in the case of a Swingline Borrowing specified in the notice therefor to be made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.05(e), by remittance to the applicable Issuing Bank identified in such notice) by 3:00 p.m., Local Time, on the requested date of such Swingline Borrowing.
(c) Any Swingline Lender may, by written notice given to the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on any Business Day, require (i) the Tranche One Lenders to acquire participations on such Business Day in all or a portion of the Tranche One Swingline Loans of such Swingline Lender outstanding and (ii) the Tranche Two Lenders to acquire participations on such Business Day in all or a portion of the Tranche Two Swingline Loans of such Swingline Lender outstanding. Such notice shall specify the aggregate amounts and currencies of Swingline Loans in which the Tranche One Lenders or the Tranche Two Lenders, as applicable, will participate. Promptly upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent will give notice thereof to each Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender, as the case may be, specifying in such notice such Lender’s Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage, as applicable, of such Swingline Loan or Loans and the currencies of such Swingline Loan or Loans. Each Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees, upon receipt of notice as provided above, to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of such Swingline Lender, such Lender’s Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage, as applicable, of such Swingline Loan or Loans. Each Tranche One Lender and Tranche Two Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to this paragraph is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including the occurrence and continuance of a Default or reduction or termination of the Tranche One Commitments or the Tranche Two Commitments, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. Each Lender further acknowledges and agrees that, in making any Swingline Loan, the applicable Swingline Lender shall be entitled to rely, and shall not incur any liability for relying, upon the representation and warranty of the applicable Borrower deemed



50

made pursuant to Section 4.01. Each Tranche One Lender and Tranche Two Lender shall comply with its obligations under this paragraph by wire transfer of immediately available funds promptly (and in any event by the next Business Day or, in the case of a payment obligation in any currency other than US Dollars, within three Business Days), in the same manner as provided in Section 2.07 with respect to Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.07 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Tranche One Lenders and Tranche Two Lenders pursuant to this paragraph), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable Swingline Lender or Swingline Lenders the amounts so received by it from the Tranche One Lenders or the Tranche Two Lenders, as applicable. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Company of any participations in any Swingline Loans acquired pursuant to this paragraph, and thereafter payments in respect of such Swingline Loans shall be made to the Administrative Agent and not to the applicable Swingline Lender or Swingline Lenders. Any amounts received by a Swingline Lender from or on behalf of the applicable Borrower in respect of a Swingline Loan after receipt by such Swingline Lender of the proceeds of a sale of participations therein shall be promptly remitted to the Administrative Agent; any such amounts received by the Administrative Agent shall be promptly remitted by the Administrative Agent to the Tranche One Lenders or the Tranche Two Lenders that shall have made their payments pursuant to this paragraph and to such Swingline Lender, as their interests may appear; provided that any such payment so remitted shall be repaid to such Swingline Lender or to the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, if and to the extent such payment is required to be refunded to a Loan Party for any reason. The purchase of participations in a Swingline Loan pursuant to this paragraph shall not relieve any Borrower of any default in the payment thereof.
SECTION 2.05. Letters of Credit. (a) General. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, any Borrower may request any Issuing Bank to issue (or to amend, renew or extend) (i) Tranche One Letters of Credit denominated in US Dollars, Sterling, Euro, any Alternative Currency in which Borrowings may be made under the Tranche One, Canadian Dollars (in the case of a Borrower that is a Canadian Subsidiary) or, at the discretion of such Issuing Bank, any Agreed LC Currency and (ii) Tranche Two Letters of Credit denominated in US Dollars, Sterling, Euro, any Alternative Currency in which Borrowings may be made under the Tranche Two or, at the discretion of such Issuing Bank, any Agreed LC Currency, in each case for its own account, in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Bank, at any time and from time to time during the Availability Period; provided that no Issuing Bank that shall have become such after the Restatement Effective Date as provided in Section 2.05(j) will be required to issue Letters of Credit denominated in any currency not set forth in such Issuing Bank’s Issuing Bank Agreement and no Issuing Bank will be required to issue Letters of Credit denominated in any currency that has been designated as available under any Tranche as contemplated by the definition of “Designated Currency” unless such Issuing Bank shall have consented to such designation. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any form of letter of credit application or other agreement submitted by a Borrower to, or entered into by a Borrower with, an Issuing Bank relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control. From and after the Restatement Effective Date, each Existing



51

Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be a Tranche One Letter of Credit or a Tranche Two Letter of Credit (as indicated on Schedule 2.05A) for all purposes hereof and shall be deemed to have been issued hereunder. Any Existing Letter of Credit originally issued for the account of a Subsidiary shall for all purposes of this Agreement be deemed to have been issued for the account of the Company, and the Company shall be fully liable for the reimbursement of drawings thereunder and any interest thereon as if such Existing Letter of Credit had been issued for its account.
(b) Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Renewal, Extension; Certain Conditions. To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit, other than an automatic renewal permitted pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section), a Borrower shall deliver, by fax or email (in .pdf or .tif format), to an Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent, at least three Business Days prior to the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, a notice requesting the issuance of a Letter of Credit, or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, renewed or extended, and specifying the date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (which shall be a Business Day), the date on which such Letter of Credit is to expire (which shall comply with paragraph (c) of this Section), the amount and currency of such Letter of Credit, the name and address of the beneficiary thereof, whether such Letter of Credit is to be a Tranche One Letter of Credit or a Tranche Two Letter of Credit and such other information as shall be necessary to enable the applicable Issuing Bank to prepare, amend, renew or extend such Letter of Credit. If requested by the applicable Issuing Bank, the applicable Borrower also shall submit a letter of credit application on such Issuing Bank’s standard form in connection with any request for a Letter of Credit. A Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, renewed or extended only if (and upon issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of each Letter of Credit the Company shall be deemed to represent and warrant that), after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (i) the LC Exposure shall not exceed US$75,000,000, (ii) the amount of the LC Exposure attributable to Letters of Credit issued by the applicable Issuing Bank will not exceed the LC Commitment of such Issuing Bank, (iii) the Aggregate Tranche One Revolving Credit Exposure shall not exceed the aggregate Tranche One Commitments, (iv) the Tranche One Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender will not exceed its Tranche One Commitment, (v) the Aggregate Tranche Two Revolving Credit Exposure shall not exceed the aggregate Tranche Two Commitments and (vi) the Tranche Two Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender will not exceed its Tranche Two Commitment. If the Required Lenders notify any Issuing Bank that a Default exists and instruct such Issuing Bank to suspend the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of Letters of Credit, such Issuing Bank shall not issue, amend, renew (except pursuant to automatic renewal provisions if such Issuing Bank shall no longer be entitled to elect not to renew) or extend any Letter of Credit without the consent of the Required Lenders until such notice is withdrawn by the Required Lenders (and each Lender that shall have delivered such a notice agrees promptly to withdraw it at such time as it determines that no Default exists), it being understood and agreed that in the absence of any such notice, each Issuing Bank may rely (and shall incur no liability in relying) on the representation and warranty of the Company deemed made pursuant to Section 4.01).



52

(c) Expiration Date. Each Letter of Credit shall expire at or prior to the close of business on the earlier of (i) unless a later date is otherwise agreed to in writing by the applicable Issuing Bank, the date one year after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or, in the case of any renewal or extension thereof, one year after such renewal or extension) and (ii) the date that is five Business Days prior to the Maturity Date. A Letter of Credit may provide for automatic renewals for additional periods of up to one year (or such longer period as may be agreed to in writing by applicable Issuing Bank) subject to a right on the part of the applicable Issuing Bank to prevent any such renewal from occurring by giving notice to the beneficiary during a specified period in advance of any such renewal, and the failure of such Issuing Bank to give such notice by the end of such period shall for all purposes hereof be deemed an extension of such Letter of Credit; provided that in no event shall any Letter of Credit, as extended from time to time, expire after the date that is five Business Days prior to the Maturity Date.
(d) Participations. By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the amount thereof) and without any further action on the part of the applicable Issuing Bank or the Lenders, the applicable Issuing Bank hereby grants to each Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender, as applicable, and each Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender, as applicable, hereby acquires from such Issuing Bank, a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Lender’s Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage, as applicable, from time to time of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender, as applicable, hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of such Issuing Bank, such Lender’s Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage, as applicable, of each LC Disbursement made by such Issuing Bank and not reimbursed by the applicable Borrower on the date due as provided in paragraph (e) of this Section, or of any reimbursement payment required to be refunded to the applicable Borrower for any reason. Such payment by the Tranche One Lenders and the Tranche Two Lenders shall be made (i) subject to paragraph (o) of this Section, if the currency of the applicable LC Disbursement or reimbursement payment shall be a Designated Currency with respect to the applicable Tranche, then in the currency of the applicable LC Disbursement or reimbursement and (ii) if the currency of the applicable LC Disbursement is an Agreed LC Currency with respect to the applicable Tranche, then in US Dollars in an amount equal to the US Dollar Equivalent of such LC Disbursement or reimbursement payment, calculated by the Administrative Agent using the LC Exchange Rate on the applicable LC Participation Calculation Date. Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations pursuant to this paragraph in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit, the occurrence and continuance of a Default, any reduction or termination of the Tranche One Commitments or Tranche Two Commitments or any force majeure or other event that under any rule of law or uniform practices to which any Letter of Credit is subject (including Section 3.14 of ISP 98 or any successor publication of the International Chamber of Commerce) permits a drawing to be made under such Letter of Credit after the expiration thereof or of the Tranche One Commitments or Tranche Two



53

Commitments, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever.
(e) Reimbursement. If an Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such LC Disbursement, in the currency of such LC Disbursement, not later than 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Business Day immediately following the day that the Borrower receives notice of such LC Disbursement; provided that, in the case of an LC Disbursement in US Dollars or Canadian Dollars, the applicable Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.03 or 2.04 that such payment be financed with an ABR Borrowing or a Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing under Section 2.01 or 2.04, as applicable, in an equivalent amount and, to the extent so financed, such Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting ABR Borrowing or Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing. If the applicable Borrower fails to make such payment when due, then, upon notice from the applicable Issuing Bank to such Borrower and the Administrative Agent, (i) if the currency of such Letter of Credit is an Agreed LC Currency with respect to the applicable Tranche, such Borrower’s obligation to reimburse such LC Disbursement shall automatically and with no further action required be converted into an obligation to reimburse the US Dollar Equivalent, calculated using the LC Exchange Rate on the applicable LC Participation Calculation Date, of such LC Disbursement, and (ii) the Administrative Agent shall notify each Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender, as applicable, of the applicable LC Disbursement, the amount and currency of the payment then due from such Borrower in respect thereof and such Lender’s Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage thereof. Promptly (and in any event by the next Business Day or, in the case of a payment obligation in any currency other than US Dollars, within three Business Days) following receipt of such notice, each applicable Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent, in the applicable currency, its Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage, as applicable, of the payment then due from the applicable Borrower, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.07 with respect to Loans made by such Tranche One Lender or Tranche Two Lender, as applicable (and Section 2.07 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the applicable Lenders), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to such Issuing Bank the amounts so received by it from the Tranche One Lenders or Tranche Two Lenders, as applicable. Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from the applicable Borrower pursuant to this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to such Issuing Bank or, to the extent that Tranche One Lenders or Tranche Two Lenders have made payments pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse such Issuing Bank, then to such Tranche One Lenders or Tranche Two Lenders and such Issuing Bank, as their interests may appear. Any payment made by a Lender pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse any Issuing Bank for any LC Disbursement (other than the funding of ABR Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Loans as contemplated above) shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve the applicable Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such LC Disbursement.



54

(f) Obligations Absolute. Each Borrower’s obligation to reimburse LC Disbursements as provided in paragraph (e) of this Section shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by the applicable Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, (iv) any force majeure or other event that under any rule of law or uniform practices to which any Letter of Credit is subject (including Section 3.14 of ISP 98 or any successor publication of the International Chamber of Commerce) permits a drawing to be made under such Letter of Credit after the stated expiration date thereof or of the Commitments or (v) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, the applicable Borrower’s obligations hereunder. None of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, any Issuing Bank or any of their Related Parties shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of such Issuing Bank; provided that nothing in this Section shall be construed to excuse an Issuing Bank from liability to the applicable Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by each Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by such Borrower that are caused by such Issuing Bank’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or wilful misconduct on the part of an Issuing Bank (such absence to be presumed unless otherwise determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction), such Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, an Issuing Bank may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.
(g) Disbursement Procedures. The applicable Issuing Bank shall, promptly following its receipt thereof, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit and shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent and



55

the applicable Borrower by telephone (confirmed by email or fax) of such demand for payment and whether such Issuing Bank has made or will make an LC Disbursement thereunder; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve the applicable Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such Issuing Bank and the Lenders with respect to any such LC Disbursement.
(h) Interim Interest. If an Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement, then, unless the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement in full on the date such LC Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such LC Disbursement is made to but excluding the date that such Borrower reimburses such LC Disbursement in full at (i) in the case of any LC Disbursement denominated in US Dollars, and at all times following the conversion to US Dollars of any LC Disbursement made in any currency other than US Dollars pursuant to paragraph (e) or (o) of this Section, the rate per annum then applicable to ABR Revolving Loans, (ii) in the case of any LC Disbursement denominated in Canadian Dollars, at all times prior to its conversion to US Dollars pursuant to paragraph (o) of this Section, the rate per annum then applicable to Canadian Prime Rate Revolving Loans, (iii) in the case of an LC Disbursement denominated in Euros, the Euro Overnight Rate plus the Applicable Rate used to determine interest applicable to EURIBOR Revolving Loans, (iv) in the case of an LC Disbursement denominated in Sterling, the Sterling Overnight Rate plus the Applicable Rate used to determine interest applicable to LIBOR Revolving Loans and (v) in the case of an LC Disbursement denominated in any Agreed LC Currency with respect to the applicable Tranche, at all times prior to its conversion to US Dollars pursuant to paragraph (e) or (o) of this Section, a rate per annum determined by the applicable Issuing Bank (which determination will be conclusive absent manifest error) to represent its cost of funds plus the Applicable Rate used to determine interest applicable to LIBOR or EURIBOR Revolving Loans; provided that, if such Borrower fails to reimburse such LC Disbursement when due pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section, then Section 2.13(h) shall apply. Interest accrued pursuant to this paragraph shall be paid to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section to reimburse such Issuing Bank shall be for the account of such Lender to the extent of such payment, and shall be payable on demand or, if no demand has been made, on the date on which the applicable Borrower reimburses the applicable LC Disbursement in full.
(i) Cash Collateralization. If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, on the Business Day that the Company receives notice from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders (or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated, Lenders with LC Exposures representing more than 50% of the aggregate amount of the LC Exposures) demanding the deposit of cash collateral pursuant to this paragraph, each applicable Borrower shall deposit (“Cash Collateralize”) in respect of each outstanding Letter of Credit issued for such Borrower’s account, in an account with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Lenders, as applicable, and the applicable Issuing Bank, an amount in cash and in the currency of such Letter of Credit equal to the portion of the LC Exposure attributable to such Letter of Credit



56

as of such date plus any accrued and unpaid fees and interest thereon; provided that (i) amounts payable in respect of any Letter of Credit denominated in an Agreed LC Currency with respect to the applicable Tranche, where the applicable Borrower’s reimbursement obligations under such Letter of Credit shall have been converted to obligations in US Dollars as provided in paragraph (e) or (o) of this Section, shall be payable in US Dollars, and (ii) the obligation to Cash Collateralize shall become effective immediately, and such deposit shall become immediately due and payable, without demand or other notice of any kind, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default with respect to the Company or any Borrower described in clause (h) or (i) of Article VII. The Borrowers also shall deposit cash collateral in accordance with this paragraph as and to the extent required by Section 2.22. Each such deposit shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the obligations of the applicable Borrowers under this Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account. Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of the Administrative Agent (which will use reasonable efforts to obtain a return at market rates on any such investments) and at the Borrowers’ risk and expense, such deposits shall not bear interest. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account. Monies in such account shall, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2.18(b), be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse the applicable Issuing Banks for LC Disbursements for which they have not been reimbursed and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of the applicable Borrowers for the LC Exposure at such time or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated (but subject to (i) the consent of Lenders with LC Exposures representing more than 50% of the aggregate LC Exposures and (ii) in the case of any such application at a time when any Lender is a Defaulting Lender (but only if, after giving effect thereto, the remaining cash collateral in respect of the LC Exposure under any Tranche shall be less than the aggregate LC Exposure under such Tranche of all the Defaulting Lenders) the consent of each Issuing Bank), be applied to satisfy other obligations of the Borrowers under the Loan Documents. If the Borrowers are required to provide cash collateral hereunder as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, such cash collateral (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to the Borrowers within three Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived. If any Borrower is required to provide an amount of cash collateral hereunder pursuant to Section 2.22, such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to such Borrower as promptly as practicable to the extent that, after giving effect to such return, no Issuing Bank shall have any exposure in respect of any outstanding Letter of Credit that is not fully covered by the Commitments of the non-Defaulting Lenders and/or the remaining cash collateral and no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing.
(j) Designation of Additional Issuing Banks. From time to time, the Company may by notice to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders designate as additional Issuing Banks one or more Lenders that agree to serve in such capacity as provided below. The acceptance by a Lender of any appointment as an Issuing Bank hereunder shall be evidenced by an agreement (an “Issuing Bank Agreement”), which shall be in a form satisfactory to



57

the Company and the Administrative Agent, shall set forth the LC Commitment of such Lender and shall be executed by such Lender, the Company and the Administrative Agent and, from and after the effective date of such agreement, (i) such Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and (ii) references herein and in the other Loan Documents to the term “Issuing Bank” shall be deemed to include such Lender in its capacity as an Issuing Bank. The Issuing Bank Agreement of any Issuing Bank may limit the currencies in which and the Borrowers for the accounts of which such Issuing Bank will issue Letters of Credit, and any such limitations will, as to such Issuing Bank, be deemed to be incorporated in this Agreement.
(k) Replacement of an Issuing Bank. An Issuing Bank may be replaced at any time by written agreement among the Company, the Administrative Agent, the replaced Issuing Bank and the successor Issuing Bank (it being understood that such successor Issuing Bank shall be designated and appointed as an Issuing Bank hereunder in accordance with paragraph (j) of this Section). The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any such replacement of an Issuing Bank. At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the Company shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.12(b). From and after the effective date of any such replacement, the 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 references herein to the term “Issuing Bank” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Issuing Bank, as the context shall require. After the replacement of an Issuing Bank hereunder, the replaced Issuing Bank shall remain a party hereto 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, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.
(l) Issuing Bank Reports. Unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank shall report in writing to the Administrative Agent (i) on or prior to each Business Day on which such Issuing Bank issues, amends, renews or extends any Letter of Credit, the date of such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, and the currencies and face amounts of the Letters of Credit issued, amended, renewed or extended by it and outstanding after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (and whether the amounts thereof shall have changed), it being understood that such Issuing Bank shall not effect any issuance, renewal, extension or amendment resulting in an increase in the aggregate amount of the Letters of Credit issued by it without first obtaining written confirmation from the Administrative Agent that such increase is then permitted under this Agreement, (ii) on each Business Day on which such Issuing Bank makes any LC Disbursement, the date, currency and amount of such LC Disbursement, (iii) on any Business Day on which the applicable Borrower fails to reimburse an LC Disbursement required to be reimbursed to such Issuing Bank on such day, the date of such failure and the currency and amount of such LC Disbursement and (iv) on any other Business Day, such other information as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request as to the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank.

(m) Letter of Credit Amounts. For all purposes of this Agreement, the amount of a Letter of Credit that, by its terms or the terms of any document related thereto, provides for one or more automatic increases in the stated amount thereof shall be deemed to be the maximum stated amount of such Letter of Credit after giving effect to all such increases (other than any such increase consisting of the reinstatement of an amount previously drawn thereunder and reimbursed), whether or not such maximum stated amount is in effect at the time of determination.
(n) Applicability of ISP and UCP; Limitation of Liability. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the applicable Issuing Bank and the Company at the time a standby Letter of Credit is issued, including any such agreement applicable to an Existing Letter of Credit, the rules of the ISP shall apply to such standby Letter of Credit.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issuing Bank shall not be responsible to the Company for, and the Issuing Bank’s rights and remedies against the Company shall not be impaired by, any action or inaction of the Issuing Bank required or permitted under any law, order, or practice that is required or permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including any law or order of a jurisdiction where the Issuing Bank or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP, as applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the International Chamber of Commerce Banking Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association (BAFT-IFSA), or the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit chooses such law or practice.
(o) Conversion. In the event that the Loans become immediately due and payable on any date pursuant to Section VII, all amounts (i) that the Borrowers are at the time or become thereafter required to reimburse or otherwise pay to the Administrative Agent in respect of LC Disbursements made under any Letter of Credit denominated in any currency other than US Dollars (other than amounts in respect of which any Borrower has deposited cash collateral, if such cash collateral was deposited in the applicable currency), (ii) that the Lenders are at the time or become thereafter required to pay to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent is at the time or becomes thereafter required to distribute to the applicable Issuing Bank) pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section in respect of unreimbursed LC Disbursements made under any Letter of Credit denominated in any currency other than US Dollars and (iii) of each Lender’s participation in any Letter of Credit denominated in any currency other than US Dollars under which an LC Disbursement has been made shall, automatically and with no further action required, be converted into the US Dollar Equivalent, calculated using the LC Exchange Rate on such date (or in the case of any LC Disbursement made after such date, on the date such LC Disbursement is made), of such amounts. On and after such conversion, all amounts accruing and owed to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in respect of the obligations described in this paragraph shall accrue and be payable in US Dollars at the rates otherwise applicable hereunder.
SECTION 2.06. Canadian Bankers’ Acceptances. (a) Each acceptance and purchase of B/As of a single Contract Period pursuant to Section 2.01(a) and this Section



59

shall be made ratably by the Tranche One Lenders in accordance with the amounts of their Tranche One Commitments. The failure of any Lender to accept any B/A required to be accepted by it shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligations hereunder; provided that the Commitments are several and no Lender shall be responsible for any other Lender’s failure to accept B/As as required. Each Lender at its option may accept and purchase any B/A by causing any Canadian lending office or Affiliate of such Lender to accept and purchase such B/A.
(b) The B/As of a single Contract Period accepted and purchased on any date shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of Cdn.$1,000,000 and not less than Cdn.$5,000,000. If any Lender’s ratable share of the B/As of any Contract Period to be accepted on any date would not be an integral multiple of Cdn.$100,000, the face amount of the B/As accepted by such Lender may be increased or reduced to the nearest integral multiple of Cdn.$100,000 by the Administrative Agent, acting through its Toronto branch, in its sole discretion. B/As of more than one Contract Period may be outstanding at the same time; provided that there shall not at any time be more than a total of 10 B/A Drawings outstanding at any time.
(c) To request an acceptance and purchase of B/As, a Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary shall submit to the Administrative Agent, acting through its Toronto branch, by fax or email (in .pdf or .tif format), a written request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by a Financial Officer of such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary, not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, two Business Days before the date of such acceptance and purchase. Each such request shall be irrevocable and shall specify the following information:
(i)     the aggregate face amount of the B/As to be accepted and purchased;
(ii) the date of such acceptance and purchase, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii) the Contract Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Contract Period” (and which shall in no event end after the Maturity Date); and
(iv) the location and number of the Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary’s account to which the proceeds of such B/As are to be disbursed.
Any request for an acceptance and purchase of B/As that shall fail to specify any of the information required by the preceding provisions of this paragraph may be rejected by the Administrative Agent if such failure is not corrected promptly after the Administrative Agent shall give written or telephonic notice thereof to the applicable Borrower and, if so rejected, will be of no force or effect. Promptly following receipt of a request in accordance with this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Tranche One Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of B/As to be accepted and purchased by such Lender.



60

(d) Each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary hereby appoints each Tranche One Lender as its attorney to sign and endorse on its behalf, manually or by facsimile or mechanical signature, as and when deemed necessary by such Lender, blank forms of B/As, each Tranche One Lender hereby agreeing that it will not sign or endorse B/As in excess of those required in connection with B/A Drawings that have been requested by the Canadian Borrowing Subsidiaries hereunder. It shall be the responsibility of each Tranche One Lender to maintain an adequate supply of blank forms of B/As for acceptance under this Agreement. Each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary recognizes and agrees that all B/As signed and/or endorsed on its behalf by any Tranche One Lender in accordance with such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary’s written request shall bind such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary as fully and effectually as if manually signed and duly issued by authorized officers of such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary. Each Tranche One Lender is hereby authorized to issue such B/As endorsed in blank in such face amounts as may be determined by such Lender; provided that the aggregate face amount thereof is equal to the aggregate face amount of B/As required to be accepted by such Lender in accordance with such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary’s written request. No Tranche One Lender shall be liable for any damage, loss or claim arising by reason of any loss or improper use of any such instrument unless such loss or improper use results from the bad faith, gross negligence or wilful misconduct of such Lender. Each Tranche One Lender shall maintain a record with respect to B/As (i) received by it from the Administrative Agent in blank hereunder, (ii) voided by it for any reason, (iii) accepted and purchased by it hereunder and (iv) canceled at their respective maturities. Each Tranche One Lender further agrees to retain such records in the manner and for the periods provided in applicable provincial or federal statutes and regulations of Canada and to provide such records to each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary upon its request and at its expense. Upon request by any Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary, a Lender shall cancel all forms of B/A that have been pre-signed or pre-endorsed on behalf of such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary and that are held by such Lender and are not required to be issued pursuant to this Agreement.
(e) Drafts of each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary to be accepted as B/As hereunder shall be signed as set forth in paragraph (d) above. Notwithstanding that any Person whose signature appears on any B/A may no longer be an authorized signatory for any of the Lenders or such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary at the date of issuance of such B/A, such signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes as if such authority had remained in force at the time of such issuance and any such B/A so signed and properly completed shall be binding on such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary.
(f) Upon acceptance of a B/A by a Tranche One Lender, such Lender shall purchase such B/A from the applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary at the Discount Rate for such Lender applicable to such B/A accepted by it and provide to the Administrative Agent the Discount Proceeds for the account of such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary as provided in Section 2.07. The acceptance fee payable by the applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary to a Lender under Section 2.12 in respect of each B/A accepted by such Lender shall be set off against the Discount Proceeds payable by such Lender under this paragraph. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of any B/A Drawing resulting from the conversion



61

or continuation of a B/A Drawing or Revolving Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.08, the net amount that would otherwise be payable to such Borrower by each Lender pursuant to this paragraph will be applied as provided in Section 2.08(f).
(g) Each Tranche One Lender may at any time and from time to time hold, sell, rediscount or otherwise dispose of any or all B/As accepted and purchased by it (it being understood that no such sale, rediscount or disposition shall constitute an assignment or participation of any Commitment hereunder).
(h) Each B/A accepted and purchased hereunder shall mature at the end of the Contract Period applicable thereto.
(i) Subject to applicable law, each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary waives presentment for payment and any other defense to payment of any amounts due to a Tranche One Lender in respect of a B/A accepted and purchased by it pursuant to this Agreement that might exist solely by reason of such B/A being held, at the maturity thereof, by such Lender in its own right, and each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary agrees not to claim any days of grace if such Lender as holder sues such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary on the B/A for payment of the amounts payable by such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary thereunder. On the last day of the Contract Period of a B/A, or such earlier date as may be required pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, the applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary shall pay the Lender that has accepted and purchased such B/A the full face amount of such B/A, and after such payment such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary shall have no further liability in respect of such B/A and such Lender shall be entitled to all benefits of, and be responsible for all payments due to third parties under, such B/A.
(j) At the option of each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary and any Lender, B/As under this Agreement to be accepted by that Lender may be issued in the form of depository bills for deposit with The Canadian Depository for Securities Limited pursuant to the Depository Bills and Notes Act (Canada). All depository bills so issued shall be governed by the provisions of this Section.
(k) If a Tranche One Lender is not a chartered bank under the Bank Act (Canada) or if a Tranche One Lender notifies the Administrative Agent in writing that it is otherwise unable to accept B/As, such Lender will, instead of accepting and purchasing any B/As, make a Loan (a “B/A Equivalent Loan”) to the applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary in the amount and for the same term as each draft which such Lender would otherwise have been required to accept and purchase hereunder. Each such Lender will provide to the Administrative Agent the Discount Proceeds of such B/A Equivalent Loan for the account of the applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary in the same manner as such Lender would have provided the Discount Proceeds in respect of the draft which such Lender would otherwise have been required to accept and purchase hereunder. Each such B/A Equivalent Loan will bear interest at the same rate that would result if such Lender had accepted (and been paid an acceptance fee) and purchased (on a discounted basis) a B/A for the relevant Contract Period (it being the intention of the parties that each such B/A Equivalent Loan shall have the same economic consequences for the Lenders and the



62

applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary as the B/A that such B/A Equivalent Loan replaces). All such interest shall be paid in advance on the date such B/A Equivalent Loan is made, and will be deducted from the principal amount of such B/A Equivalent Loan in the same manner in which the Discount Proceeds of a B/A would be deducted from the face amount of the B/A. Subject to the repayment requirements of this Agreement, on the last day of the relevant Contract Period for such B/A Equivalent Loan, the applicable Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary shall be entitled to convert each such B/A Equivalent Loan into another type of Loan, or to roll over each such B/A Equivalent Loan into another B/A Equivalent Loan, all in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement.
(l) For greater certainty, all provisions of this Agreement that are applicable to B/As shall also be applicable, mutatis mutandis, to B/A Equivalent Loans.
SECTION 2.07. Funding of Borrowings and B/A Drawings. (a) Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder and disburse the Discount Proceeds (net of applicable acceptance fees) of each B/A to be accepted and purchased by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds in the applicable currency by 2:00 p.m., Local Time (or, in the case of an ABR Borrowing for which notice is provided on the proposed date of borrowing, not later than the later of 2:00 p.m., Local Time, and two hours after receipt of such notice), to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by the Administrative Agent for such purpose by notice to the Lenders; provided that Swingline Loans shall be made as provided in Section 2.04. The Administrative Agent will make such Loan proceeds or Discount Proceeds available to the applicable Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to the Applicable Funding Account of such Borrower; provided that ABR Revolving Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Revolving Loans made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.05(e) shall be remitted by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Issuing Bank.
(b) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing or acceptance and purchase of B/As that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing or the applicable Discount Proceeds (net of applicable acceptance fees), the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the applicable Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing or the applicable Discount Proceeds (net of applicable acceptance fees) available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and such Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, (A) if denominated in US Dollars, the greater of (x) the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (y) a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation and (B) if denominated in any other currency, the greater of (x) the



63

rate reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent to be the cost to it of funding such amount and (y) a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation or (ii) in the case of such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the subject Loan or the applicable Discount Rate and pro-rated acceptance fee, as the case may be. If such Borrower and such Lender shall both pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to such Borrower the amount of such interest paid by such Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by any Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim such Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.
SECTION 2.08. Interest Elections. (a) Each Revolving Borrowing initially shall be of the permitted Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing, a CDOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request or as otherwise provided in Section 2.03. Each B/A Drawing shall have a Contract Period as specified in the applicable request therefor or as otherwise provided in Section 2.06. Thereafter, the applicable Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing or B/A Drawing to a Borrowing of a different Type or, in the case of a Borrowing in Canadian Dollars, a B/A Drawing, or to continue such Borrowing or B/A Drawing and, in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing, a CDOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section and on terms consistent with the other provisions of this Agreement, it being understood that no B/A Drawing may be converted or continued other than at the end of the Contract Period applicable thereto. A Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of an affected Borrowing or B/A Drawing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing or accepting the B/As comprising such B/A Drawing, as the case may be, and the Loans or B/As resulting from an election made with respect to any such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing or B/A Drawing. This Section shall not apply to Swingline Borrowings, which may not be converted or continued.
(b) To make an election pursuant to this Section, a Borrower (or the Company on its behalf) shall submit to the Administrative Agent, by fax or email (in .pdf or .tif format), a completed Interest Election Request signed by a Financial Officer of such Borrower (or, as applicable, of the Company), (i) in the case of an election that would result in a Borrowing, by the time and date that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if such Borrower were requesting a Revolving Borrowing of the Type and in the currency resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election and (ii) in the case of an election that would result in a B/A Drawing or the continuation of a B/A Drawing, by the time and date that a request would be required under Section 2.06 if such Borrower were requesting an acceptance and purchase of B/As to be made on the effective date of such election. Each such Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, a Borrower shall not be permitted to (x) change the currency of any Borrowing or B/A Drawing, (y) elect an Interest Period for LIBOR Loans, CDOR



64

Loans or EURIBOR Loans that does not comply with Section 2.02(d) or any Contract Period for a B/A Drawing that does not comply with Section 2.06 or (z) convert any Borrowing or B/A Drawing to a Borrowing or B/A Drawing not available to such Borrower under the Class of Commitments pursuant to which such Borrowing or B/A Drawing was made.
(c) Each Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)     the Borrowing or B/A Drawing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing or B/A Drawing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing or B/A Drawing);
(ii) the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii) in the case of an election resulting in a Borrowing, the currency and Type of the resulting Borrowing; and
(iv) in the case of an election resulting in a Borrowing, if the resulting Borrowing is to be a LIBOR Borrowing, a CDOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”, and in the case of an election resulting in a B/A Drawing, the Contract Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Contract Period”.
If any such Interest Election Request requests a LIBOR, CDOR or EURIBOR Borrowing or a B/A Drawing but does not specify an Interest Period or a Contract Period, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration or a Contract Period of 30 days’ duration.
(d) Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each affected Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing or B/A Drawing.
(e) If the applicable Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a LIBOR Borrowing, a CDOR Borrowing, a EURIBOR Borrowing or a B/A Drawing prior to the end of the Interest Period or Contract Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing or B/A Drawing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period or Contract Period, (i) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing made to the Company, a US Borrowing Subsidiary or a Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary and denominated in US Dollars, such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing, (ii) in the case of a CDOR Borrowing or a B/A Drawing denominated in Canadian Dollars, such Borrowing or B/A Drawing shall be converted to a Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing and



65

(iii) in the case of any other LIBOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing, such Borrowing shall become due and payable on the last day of such Interest Period.
(f) Upon the conversion of any Borrowing (or portion thereof), or the continuation of any B/A Drawing (or portion thereof), to or as a B/A Drawing, the net amount that would otherwise be payable to a Borrower by each Lender pursuant to Section 2.06(f) in respect of such new B/A Drawing shall be applied against the principal of such Borrowing (in the case of a conversion) or the reimbursement obligation owed to such Lender under Section 2.06(i) in respect of the B/As accepted by such Lender as part of such maturing B/A Drawing (in the case of a continuation), and such Borrower shall pay to such Lender an amount equal to the difference between the principal amount of such Loan or the aggregate face amount of such maturing B/As, as the case may be, and such net amount.
(g) Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the Borrower, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing, (i) no outstanding Borrowing denominated in US Dollars to the Company, a US Subsidiary or a Canadian Subsidiary may be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, each LIBOR Borrowing denominated in US Dollars to the Company, a US Subsidiary or a Canadian Subsidiary shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto.
SECTION 2.09. Termination, Reduction, Increase and Redesignation of Commitments. (a) Unless previously terminated, the Commitments shall terminate on the Maturity Date.
(b) The Company may at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Commitments (ratably as between the Tranches); provided that (i) each reduction of the Commitments shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple and not less than the Borrowing Minimum, in each case for Borrowings denominated in US Dollars and (ii) the Company shall not terminate or reduce the Commitments if, after giving effect to such termination or reduction and to any concurrent payment or prepayment of Loans, B/As or LC Disbursements, the aggregate amount of Revolving Credit Exposures under either Tranche would exceed the aggregate amount of Commitments of such Tranche.
(c) The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments of any Tranche under paragraph (b) of this Section at least two Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the applicable Lenders of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Company pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of the Commitments of any Tranche may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of one or more events specified therein, in which case such notice may be revoked or extended by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied. Any termination or reduction of the Commitments of any Tranche shall be



66

permanent. Each reduction of the Commitments of any Tranche shall be made ratably among the applicable Lenders in accordance with their Commitments of such Tranche.
(d) The Company may at any time and from time to time, by written agreement executed by the Company and one or more financial institutions (any such financial institution referred to in this Section being called an “Increasing Lender”), which may include any Lender, and delivered to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver a copy to the applicable Lenders) cause new Tranche One Commitments or Tranche Two Commitments to be extended by the Increasing Lenders (or cause the existing Tranche One Commitments or Tranche Two Commitments of the Increasing Lenders to be increased, as the case may be) in an amount for each Increasing Lender (which shall not be less than US$5,000,000) set forth in such agreement; provided that (i) the new Commitments and increases in existing Commitments pursuant to this paragraph shall not be greater than US$350,000,000 in the aggregate since the Restatement Effective Date and shall not be less than US$5,000,000 (or any portion of such US$350,000,000 aggregate amount remaining unused) for any such increase, (ii) each Increasing Lender shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent (if such Increasing Lender is not already a Lender hereunder), each Issuing Bank and each Swingline Lender that has agreed to make Swingline Loans of the applicable Tranche (in each case, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) and (iii) each Increasing Lender, if not already a Lender hereunder, shall become a party to this Agreement by completing and delivering to the Administrative Agent a duly executed accession agreement in a form satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Company (an “Accession Agreement”). New Commitments and increases in Commitments shall become effective on the date specified in the applicable agreement delivered pursuant to this paragraph. Upon the effectiveness of any Accession Agreement to which any Increasing Lender is a party, such Increasing Lender shall thereafter be deemed to be a party to this Agreement and shall be entitled to all rights, benefits and privileges accorded a Lender hereunder and subject to all obligations of a Lender hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no increase in the Commitments (or in the Commitment of any Lender) pursuant to this paragraph shall become effective unless (x) the Administrative Agent shall have received documents consistent with those delivered under Sections 4.01(b) and 4.01(c), giving effect to such increase and (y) on the effective date of such increase, the conditions set forth in Sections 4.01(a) and 4.01(b) shall be satisfied (with all references in such paragraphs to a Borrowing being deemed to be references to such increase) and the Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate to that effect dated such date and executed by a Financial Officer of the Company. Any decision by a Lender to become an Increasing Lender under this paragraph shall be in its sole and absolute discretion, and a Lender that does not execute the notice referred to in the first sentence of this paragraph shall not be an Increasing Lender.
(e) On the effective date (the “Increase Effective Date”) of any increase in the Commitments of any Tranche pursuant to paragraph (d) above (a “Commitment Increase”), (i) the aggregate principal amount of the Revolving Borrowings of such Tranche outstanding (the “Initial Borrowings”) immediately prior to the Commitment Increase on the Increase Effective Date shall be deemed to be paid, (ii) each Increasing Lender that shall



67

have had a Commitment under such Tranche prior to the Commitment Increase shall pay to the Administrative Agent in same day funds (in the applicable currencies), an amount equal to the difference between (A) the product of (1) such Lender’s applicable Tranche Percentage (calculated after giving effect to the Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Subsequent Borrowing (as hereinafter defined) and (B) the product of (1) such Lender’s applicable Tranche Percentage (calculated without giving effect to the Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Initial Borrowing, (iii) each Increasing Lender that shall not have had a Commitment under such Tranche prior to the Commitment Increase shall pay to the Administrative Agent in same day funds (in the applicable currencies) an amount equal to the product of (1) such Increasing Lender’s applicable Tranche Percentage (calculated after giving effect to the Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Subsequent Borrowing, (iv) after the Administrative Agent receives the funds specified in clauses (ii) and (iii) above, the Administrative Agent shall pay to each Lender (in the applicable currencies) the portion of such funds that is equal to the difference between (A) the product of (1) such Lender’s applicable Tranche Percentage (calculated without giving effect to the Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Initial Borrowing and (B) the product of (1) such Lender’s applicable Tranche Percentage (calculated after giving effect to the Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Subsequent Borrowing, (v) after the effectiveness of the Commitment Increase, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have made new Borrowings (the “Subsequent Borrowings”) in amounts (in the currencies of the Initial Borrowings) equal to the amounts of the Initial Borrowings and of the Types and for the Interest Periods specified in a Borrowing Request delivered to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 2.03, (vi) each Lender shall be deemed to hold its applicable Tranche Percentage of each Subsequent Borrowing (calculated after giving effect to the Commitment Increase) and (vii) the Borrower shall pay each Lender any and all accrued but unpaid interest on its Loans comprising the Initial Borrowings. The deemed payments made pursuant to clause (i) above shall be subject to compensation by the applicable Borrower pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.16 if the Increase Effective Date occurs other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto. On the Increase Effective Date of any increase in the Tranche One Commitments pursuant to paragraph (d) above, the applicable Borrowers and Lenders shall take such actions (including making and receiving payments), if any, as the Administrative Agent shall specify in order that the extensions of credit represented by any outstanding B/As may be held by the Tranche One Lenders ratably in proportion to their Tranche One Commitments; provided that if the Administrative Agent does not specify any such actions, such outstanding B/As will continue outstanding for the duration of the applicable Contract Periods and the applicable Borrowers’ reimbursement obligations under Section 2.06(i) will continue to be owed to the Lenders that accepted and purchased such B/As.
(f) Any Tranche Two Lender may at any time and from time to time, upon five Business Days’ written notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver a copy of such notice to each other Lender) and the Company, and with the consent of the Company, cause the entire amount of such Lender’s Tranche Two Commitment to be redesignated as a Tranche One Commitment; provided that (i) at the time of any such



68

redesignation, to the extent there are any outstanding Loans, the parties hereto shall implement arrangements satisfactory to the Company and the Administrative Agent to ensure that the Lenders of each Tranche will, after giving effect to such redesignation (or by such later time as the Administrative Agent may agree), hold the Loans comprising each Borrowing under such Tranche ratably in accordance with their respective Commitments and (ii) such redesignation will not result in the Aggregate Tranche One Revolving Credit Exposure exceeding the aggregate Tranche One Commitments or the Aggregate Tranche Two Revolving Credit Exposure exceeding the aggregate Tranche Two Commitments.
SECTION 2.10. Repayment of Loans and B/As; Evidence of Debt. (a) Each Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each applicable Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan of such Borrower on the Maturity Date and the face amount of each B/A, if any, accepted by such Lender as provided in Section 2.06 and (ii) to each Swingline Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Swingline Loan made by such Swingline Lender on the earlier of the Maturity Date and the fifth Business Day after such Swingline Loan is made; provided that on each date that a Revolving Borrowing denominated in Sterling or Euro is made to a Borrower that shall have borrowed Swingline Loans, such Borrower shall repay all its outstanding Swingline Loans denominated in such currency. Each Borrower will pay the principal amount of each Loan or B/A made to or drawn by such Borrower and the accrued interest on such Loan in the currency of such Loan or B/A.
(b) Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the Indebtedness of each Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan made or B/A accepted and purchased by such Lender, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder.
(c) The Administrative Agent shall maintain accounts in which it shall record (i) the amount of each Loan made and B/A accepted and purchased hereunder, the Class and Type of each such Loan and, in the case of any LIBOR, CDOR or EURIBOR Loan, the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from each Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders or any of them and each Lender’s share thereof.
(d) The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraph (b) or (c) of this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the Obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of any Borrower to repay the Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(e) Any Lender may request that Loans of any Class made by it to any Borrower be evidenced by a promissory note. In such event, the applicable Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to such Lender and in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent. Thereafter, the Revolving



69

Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 11.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the payee named therein.
SECTION 2.11. Prepayment of Loans and B/As. (a) Any Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing or B/A Drawing of such Borrower, in whole or in part, subject to prior notice in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Section.
(b) If the aggregate Revolving Credit Exposures under any Tranche shall exceed the aggregate Commitments under such Tranche, then (i) on the last day of any Interest Period for any LIBOR Borrowing, CDOR Borrowing or EURIBOR Borrowing, and the last day of any Contract Period for any B/A Drawing under such Tranche and (ii) on each other date on which any ABR Revolving Borrowing, Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing or Swingline Loan shall be outstanding under such Tranche, the applicable Borrowers shall prepay Loans under such Tranche in an aggregate amount equal to the lesser of (A) the amount necessary to eliminate such excess (after giving effect to any other prepayment of Loans or payment of B/As on such day) and (B) the amount of the applicable Revolving Borrowings, B/A Drawings or Swingline Loans referred to in clause (i) or (ii), as applicable. If the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Exposures under any Tranche on the last day of any month (or on any other date specified by Lenders representing more than 50% of the Commitments under such Tranche) shall exceed 105% of the aggregate Commitments under such Tranche, then the applicable Borrowers shall, not later than the next Business Day, prepay one or more Borrowings under such Tranche in an aggregate principal amount sufficient to eliminate such excess.
(c) Prior to any optional or mandatory prepayment of Borrowings hereunder, the applicable Borrower shall select the Borrowing or Borrowings to be prepaid and shall specify such selection in the notice of such prepayment pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section.
(d) The applicable Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent (and, in the case of prepayment of a Swingline Loan, the applicable Swingline Lender) of any prepayment of a Borrowing hereunder by email (in .pdf format) or fax of a notice signed by a Financial Officer on behalf of the applicable Borrower (i) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in US Dollars, not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, three Business Days before the date of such prepayment (or, in the case of a prepayment under paragraph (b) above, as soon thereafter as practicable), (ii) in the case of a CDOR Borrowing denominated in Canadian Dollars, a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in Sterling or an Alternative Currency, a EURIBOR Borrowing or a B/A Drawing, not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, three Business Days before the date of such prepayment (or, in the case of a prepayment under paragraph (b) above, as soon thereafter as practicable), (iii) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, on the date of such prepayment and (iv) in the case of a Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing, not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, on the date of such prepayment. Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall



70

specify the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid; provided that, if a notice of optional prepayment is given in connection with a conditional notice of termination of the Commitments as contemplated by Section 2.09(c), then such notice of prepayment may be revoked or extended if such notice of termination is revoked or extended in accordance with Section 2.09(c). Promptly following receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the applicable Lenders of the contents thereof. Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing or B/A Drawing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Borrowing of the same Type and in the same currency as provided in Section 2.02 or a drawing of B/As as provided in Section 2.06. Each prepayment of a Borrowing or a B/A Drawing shall be applied ratably to the Loans or B/As included in the prepaid Borrowing or B/A Drawing.
SECTION 2.12. Fees. (a) The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, in US Dollars, for the account of each Lender, a facility fee, which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate on the daily amount of each Commitment of such Lender, whether used or unused, during the period from and including the Restatement Effective Date to but excluding the date on which such Commitment terminates; provided that, if any Lender continues to have any Revolving Credit Exposure under any Tranche after its Commitment under such Tranche terminates, then such facility fee shall continue to accrue on the daily amount of such Lender’s Revolving Credit Exposure under such Tranche from and including the date on which such Commitment terminates to but excluding the date on which such Lender ceases to have any Revolving Credit Exposure under such Tranche. Accrued facility fees shall be payable in arrears on the first day of January, April, July and October of each year, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Restatement Effective Date and, with respect to the Commitments of any Tranche, on the date on which the Commitments of such Tranche shall terminate; provided that any facility fees accruing on the Revolving Credit Exposure under any Tranche after the date on which the Commitments under such Tranche terminate shall be payable on demand. All facility fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
(b) The Company agrees to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent, in US Dollars for the account of each Tranche One Lender or each Tranche Two Lender, as applicable, a participation fee with respect to its participations in Letters of Credit, which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate used to determine the interest rate applicable to LIBOR Revolving Loans, on the daily amount of such Lender’s LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the period from and including the Restatement Effective Date to but excluding the later of the date on which such Lender’s Commitment terminates and the date on which such Lender ceases to have any LC Exposure and (ii) to each Issuing Bank a fronting fee, which shall accrue at a rate per annum separately agreed upon between the Company and the applicable Issuing Bank on the portion of the daily amount of the LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) attributable to Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank during the period from and including the Restatement Effective Date to but excluding the later of the date of termination of the Commitments and the date on which there ceases to be any such



71

LC Exposure, as well as each Issuing Bank’s standard fees with respect to the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or processing of drawings thereunder. Participation fees and fronting fees accrued or becoming payable in respect of Letters of Credit through and including the last day of March, June, September and December of each year shall be payable on the third Business Day following such last day, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Restatement Effective Date; provided that all such fees shall be payable on the date on which the Commitments terminate and any such fees accruing after the date on which the Commitments terminate shall be payable on demand. Any other fees payable to the Issuing Banks pursuant to this paragraph shall be payable within 10 days after demand. All participation fees and fronting fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
(c) Each Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Tranche One Lender, on each date on which B/As drawn by such Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary are accepted and purchased hereunder, in Canadian Dollars, an acceptance fee computed by multiplying the aggregate face amount of the B/As accepted by such Lender on such date by the product of (i) the Applicable Rate (being the applicable “B/A Stamping Fee” set forth in the definition of such term) on such date and (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days in the Contract Period applicable to such B/As and the denominator of which is 365.
(d) The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Company and the Administrative Agent.
(e) All fees payable hereunder shall be paid on the dates due, in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent or to the Issuing Banks (in the case of fees payable to them) for distribution (i) in the case of facility fees, to the Lenders and (ii) in the case of the participation fees, to the Tranche One Lenders or Tranche Two Lenders, as applicable, and (iii) in the case of acceptance fees, to the Tranche One Lenders. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances.
SECTION 2.13. Interest. (a) The Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate.
(b) The Revolving Loans comprising each LIBOR Revolving Borrowing shall bear interest at (i) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in US Dollars, the Adjusted LIBO Rate and (ii) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a currency other than US Dollars, the LIBO Rate, in each case for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing, plus the Applicable Rate.
(c) The Revolving Loans comprising each CDOR Revolving Borrowing shall bear interest at the CDOR Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.



72

(d) The Revolving Loans comprising each EURIBOR Revolving Borrowing shall bear interest at the EURIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.
(e) The Loans comprising each Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing shall bear interest at the Canadian Prime Rate plus the Applicable Rate.
(f) The Swingline Loans denominated in Sterling shall bear interest at the Sterling Overnight Rate plus the Applicable Rate.
(g) The Swingline Loans denominated in Euro shall bear interest at the Euro Overnight Rate plus the Applicable Rate.
(h) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan, B/A or LC Disbursement, any fee or any other amount payable by any Borrower hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of overdue principal of any Loan, B/A or LC Disbursement, 2% plus the interest rate or discount rate otherwise applicable to such Loan, B/A or LC Disbursement as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section or in Section 2.05 or 2.06 or (ii) in the case of any other amount, 2% plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans made to the Company as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section.
(i) Accrued interest on each Loan under any Tranche shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan and upon the termination of the Commitments of such Tranche; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (h) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Revolving Loan, a Canadian Prime Rate Revolving Loan or a Swingline Loan prior to the end of the Availability Period), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of any LIBOR Revolving Loan, CDOR Revolving Loan or EURIBOR Revolving Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion. All interest shall be payable in the currency in which the applicable Loan is denominated.
(j) All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that (i) interest on Borrowings denominated in Sterling, (ii) interest computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate and (iii) interest on CDOR Borrowings, Canadian Prime Rate Borrowings and acceptance fees shall each be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or, in the case of ABR Borrowings, 366 days in a leap year), and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable Adjusted LIBO Rate, CDOR Rate, EURIBO Rate, Alternate Base Rate or Canadian Prime Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.



73

SECTION 2.14. Alternate Rate of Interest. (a) If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a LIBOR Borrowing, a CDOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing in any currency:
(i)     the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the LIBO Rate, the CDOR Rate or the EURIBO Rate, as the case may be, for such currency or in respect of a Loan in such currency for such Interest Period; or
(ii) the Administrative Agent is advised by a majority in interest of the Lenders that would make Loans as part of such Borrowing that the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the LIBO Rate, the CDOR Rate or the EURIBO Rate, as the case may be, for such currency or in respect of a Loan in such currency for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining the Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof (which may be by telephone) to the applicable Borrower and the applicable Lenders as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the applicable Borrower and the applicable Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (A) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Revolving Borrowing to, or the continuation of any Revolving Borrowing as, an affected LIBOR Borrowing, CDOR Borrowing or EURIBOR Borrowing, as the case may be, shall be ineffective, (B) any affected LIBOR Borrowing, CDOR Borrowing or EURIBOR Borrowing that is requested to be continued shall (1) if denominated in US Dollars, be continued as an ABR Borrowing, or (2) otherwise, be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto and (C) any Borrowing Request for an affected LIBOR Borrowing, CDOR Borrowing or EURIBOR Borrowing shall (1) if denominated in US Dollars, be deemed a request for an ABR Borrowing, or (2) otherwise, be ineffective.
(b) If at any time the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances set forth in paragraph (a)(i) of this Section have arisen (including because the applicable Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis) and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in paragraph (a)(i) of this Section have not arisen but (A) the supervisor for the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate has made a public statement that the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate is insolvent (and there is no successor administrator that will continue publication of the applicable Screen Rate), (B) the supervisor for the administrator or the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the applicable Screen Rate will permanently or indefinitely cease to be published or (C) the supervisor for the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the applicable Screen Rate may no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans



74

denominated in the applicable currency, then the Administrative Agent and the Company shall endeavor in good faith to establish an alternate rate of interest to the applicable Screen Rate for such currency that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention in the United States for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans denominated in the applicable currency at such time, and the Administrative Agent and the Company shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable (it being understood that such amendment shall not reduce the Applicable Rate); provided that if such alternate rate of interest shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 11.02, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within 10 Business Days of the date a copy of such amendment is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that the Required Lenders object to such amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this paragraph (b) (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (ii)(A) or (ii)(B) of the first sentence of this paragraph (b), only to the extent the applicable Screen Rate for such Interest Period is not available or published at such time on a current basis), clauses (A), (B) and (C) of paragraph (a) of this Section shall be applicable.
SECTION 2.15. Increased Costs. (a) If any Change in Law shall:
(i)     impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate) or any Issuing Bank;
(ii) impose on any Lender, any Issuing Bank or the London, European or Canadian interbank market any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement or LIBOR Loans, CDOR Loans or EURIBOR Loans made by or any acceptance and purchase of B/As by such Lender or the funding of such Loans or any Letter of Credit or participations therein; or
(iii) subject any Credit Party to any Taxes on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto (other than Other Connection Taxes imposed on gross or net income, profits or revenue (including value-added or similar Taxes));
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender or such other Credit Party of making, continuing, converting to or maintaining any Loan or accepting and purchasing any B/As (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan or to accept and purchase any such B/As) or to increase the cost to such Lender, Issuing Bank or such other Credit Party of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender, Issuing Bank or such other Credit Party hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then the Company



75

will pay to such Lender, Issuing Bank or such other Credit Party, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Credit Party, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(b) If any Lender or Issuing Bank determines in good faith that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or Issuing Bank or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements has had or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made or B/As accepted and purchased by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank, to a level below that which such Lender or Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Company will pay to such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c) A certificate of a Lender or an Issuing Bank setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or Issuing Bank or its holding company, as the case may be, and the manner in which such amount or amounts have been calculated, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error. The Company shall pay such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or Issuing Bank to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the applicable Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, notifies the Company of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180‑day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
(e) The foregoing provisions of this Section shall not apply to Taxes imposed on or with respect to payments made by the Borrowers hereunder or Other Taxes, which Taxes shall be governed in each case solely by Section 2.17.
SECTION 2.16. Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any LIBOR Loan, any CDOR Loan or any EURIBOR Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of



76

Default), (b) the conversion of any LIBOR Loan, any CDOR Loan or any EURIBOR Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any LIBOR Loan, any CDOR Loan or any EURIBOR Loan or to make any B/A Drawing on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether any such notice may be revoked or extended in accordance herewith and is so revoked or extended) or (d) the assignment of any LIBOR Loan, any CDOR Loan or any EURIBOR Loan or the right to receive payment in respect of a B/A other than on the last day of the Interest Period or Contract Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the applicable Borrower pursuant to Section 2.19 or the CAM Exchange, then, in any such event, the applicable Borrower shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense (but not for any lost profit) attributable to such event. Such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) (A) with respect to a LIBOR Loan, a CDOR Loan or a EURIBOR Loan, the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the CDOR Rate or the EURIBO Rate, as the case may be, that would have been applicable to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan) or (B) with respect to a B/A, (x) in the case of an event described in clause (c) above, the face amount of such B/A minus the Discount Proceeds of such B/A and (y) in the case of an event described in clause (d) above, the face amount of such B/A minus amounts received as a result of such assignment over (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount or the Discount Proceeds applicable to such B/A for such period at the interest rate which such Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in the applicable currency of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the London, European or Canadian interbank market. A certificate of any Lender setting forth in reasonable detail any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The applicable Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof. Any payments by the applicable Borrowers in respect of B/As under this Section shall be made without duplication of any payment made by any Canadian Borrowing Subsidiary under Section 2.06(i).
SECTION 2.17. Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of a Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any withholding agent shall be required by applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of the applicable withholding agent) to deduct or withhold any Tax from any such payment, then (i) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax or Other Tax, the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after all required deductions and withholdings have been made (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the applicable Credit Party receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made, (ii) such withholding agent shall make such deductions or withholdings and (iii) such



77

withholding agent shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(b) In addition, the Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for, any Other Taxes.
(c) As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by a Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(d) Each Loan Party shall jointly and severally indemnify each Credit Party, within 10 days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes imposed on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document or Other Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) payable or paid by such Credit Party or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Credit Party and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto. A certificate setting forth the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Company by the Administrative Agent (for its own account, or on behalf of a Lender) or a Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error. A copy of such certificate shall also be delivered to the Administrative Agent.
(e) Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent for (i) any Taxes (but, in the case of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, only to the extent that any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Loan Parties to do so) attributable to such Lender and (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 11.04(f) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register, in each case that are paid or payable by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. The indemnity under this paragraph shall be paid within 10 days after the Administrative Agent delivers to the applicable Lender a certificate stating the amount of Taxes so paid or payable by the Administrative Agent. Such certificate shall be conclusive of the amount so paid or payable absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph.
(f) (i) Any Lender that, under the law of the jurisdiction in which a Borrower to which such Lender may be required to make Loans hereunder is resident or located (or



78

any treaty to which such jurisdiction is a party), is entitled to an exemption from or a reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall (in the case of a Loan to a Borrower who is not a UK Borrowing Subsidiary) deliver to the Company (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at the time or times prescribed by applicable law, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Company as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding; provided that such Lender shall have first received written notice from the Company advising it of the availability of such exemption or reduction and containing all applicable documentation. In the case of a Loan to a Borrower who is a UK Borrowing Subsidiary, the parties shall comply with the provisions of Section 2.17(h). In addition, any Lender, if requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by law or reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Company or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to any withholding (including backup withholding) or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.17(f), the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 2.17(f)(ii)(A), 2.17(f)(ii)(B) and 2.17(g) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender. Upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent, any Lender shall update any form or certification previously delivered pursuant to this Section 2.17(f). Any Lender shall promptly notify the Company at any time it determines that it is no longer in a position to provide any such previously delivered documentation to the Company. If any form or certification previously delivered pursuant to this Section 2.17(f) expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect with respect to a Lender, such Lender shall promptly (and in any event within 10 days after such expiration, obsolescence or inaccuracy) notify the Company and the Administrative Agent in writing of such expiration, obsolescence or inaccuracy and update the form or certification if it is legally eligible to do so.
(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that a Borrower to which a Lender may be required to make Loans hereunder is a US Person:
(A)    if such Lender is a US Person, such Lender shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent) executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from US Federal backup withholding Tax;
(B)    if such Lender is not a US Person, such Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to



79

time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent) whichever of the following is applicable:
(1)     in the case of a Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, executed originals of IRS Form W‑8BEN or IRS Form W‑8BEN‑E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or a reduction of, US Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W‑8BEN or IRS Form W‑8BEN‑E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, US Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
(2)     executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(3)     in the case of a Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E-1 to the effect that such Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of a Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “US Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W‑8BEN or IRS Form W‑8BEN‑E, as applicable; or
(4)     to the extent a Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W‑8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W‑8BEN or IRS Form W‑8BEN-E, as applicable, a US Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E-2 or Exhibit E-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if such Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Lender may provide a US Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit E-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner; and
(C)    if such Lender is not a US Person, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, it shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in US Federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed



80

by applicable law to permit the Company or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made.
(g) If a payment made to any Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to US Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Company or the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Company or the Administrative Agent to comply with its obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Lender has or has not complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA and, as necessary, to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 2.17(g), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Restatement Effective Date.
(h) (i) Each Lender which is a UK Qualifying Lender shall include an indication to that effect in such Lender’s Administrative Questionnaire, such indication to include details of which limb of the definition of UK Qualifying Lender is applicable to it (or otherwise provide such indication to the Administrative Agent and the Company, for the benefit of each Borrower that is a UK Subsidiary).
(ii) Subject to paragraphs (iii) and (iv) below, each UK Borrowing Subsidiary and any Lender which is not a UK Qualifying Lender and is entitled to an exemption from or a reduction of withholding Tax on interest under any applicable double taxation treaty to which the United Kingdom is a party shall, cooperate in completing any procedural formalities necessary for such Lender to receive payments under any Loan Document without withholding or deduction on account of Taxes imposed under the laws of the United Kingdom.
(iii) Each Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or a reduction of withholding Tax on interest under any applicable double taxation treaty to which the United Kingdom is a party, and that holds a passport number under the HMRC DT Passport Scheme and wishes that scheme to apply to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, shall include an indication to that effect by including the scheme reference number and its jurisdiction of tax residence in such Lender’s Administrative Questionnaire (or otherwise provide the scheme reference number to the Administrative Agent and the Company, for the benefit of each UK Borrowing Subsidiary).
(iv) Without limiting paragraph (h)(ii) above, where a Lender includes the indication described in paragraph (h)(iii) above, each UK Borrowing Subsidiary shall make a Borrower DTTP Filing with respect to each such Lender within 30 days of the date such UK Borrowing Subsidiary becomes a Borrowing Subsidiary (or, in



81

the case of any Lender becoming a Lender hereunder after the date such UK Borrowing Subsidiary becomes a Borrowing Subsidiary, within 30 days of the date such Lender becomes a Lender hereunder), and in each case shall promptly provide such Lender with a copy of that filing; provided that if:
(A)    each UK Borrowing Subsidiary making a payment to such Lender has not made a Borrower DTTP Filing in respect of such Lender; or
(B)    each UK Borrowing Subsidiary making a payment to such Lender has made a Borrower DTTP Filing in respect of such Lender but:
(1)     such Borrower DTTP Filing has been rejected by HMRC; or
(2)     HMRC has not given such UK Borrowing Subsidiary authority to make payments to such Lender without a deduction for tax within 60 days of the date of such Borrower DTTP Filing;
and, in each case, such UK Borrowing Subsidiary has notified such Lender in writing of the circumstances referred to in clause (1) or (2) above, then such Lender and such UK Borrowing Subsidiary shall cooperate in completing any additional procedural formalities necessary for such UK Borrowing Subsidiary to obtain authorization to make that payment without withholding or deduction for Taxes imposed under the laws of the United Kingdom.
(v) If a Lender has not confirmed its scheme reference number and jurisdiction of tax residence in accordance with paragraph (h)(iii) above, no UK Borrowing Subsidiary shall make a Borrower DTTP Filing or file any other form relating to the HMRC DT Treaty Passport Scheme in respect of such Lender’s Commitment (or LC Commitment, where such Lender is an Issuing Bank) or its participation in any Loan unless such Lender otherwise agrees.
(vi) Each UK Borrowing Subsidiary shall, promptly on making a Borrower DTTP Filing, deliver a copy of such Borrower DTTP Filing to the Administrative Agent for delivery to the relevant Lender.
(vii) Each Lender shall notify the UK Borrowing Subsidiaries and Administrative Agent if it determines in its sole discretion that it ceases to be entitled to claim the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United Kingdom is a party with respect to payments made by any UK Borrowing Subsidiary hereunder.
(i) If the Administrative Agent or a Lender determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by a Borrower or with respect to which a Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section, it shall pay over such refund to such Borrower (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Borrower under



82

this Section with respect to the Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of the Administrative Agent or such Lender and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that such Borrower, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Borrower (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.17(i), in no event will the Administrative Agent or any Lender be required to pay any amount to any Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.17(i) to the extent such payment would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender in a less favorable position (on a net after-Tax basis) than the Administrative Agent or such Lender would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This Section shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to any Borrower or other Person.
(j) Each party’s obligations under this Section shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender or an Issuing Bank, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.
(k) If any Governmental Authority shall determine that the Administrative Agent did not properly withhold Taxes from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender (whether because such recipient failed to deliver or to complete properly any form or to notify the Administrative Agent of a change in circumstances that affected its exemption from withholding or for any other reason), such Lender shall indemnify the Administrative Agent for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Administrative Agent as a result of such determination, including any penalties or interest assessed by such Governmental Authority, and including Taxes imposed on amounts payable to the Administrative Agent under this subsection, together with all reasonable costs and expenses related thereto.
(l) For purposes of this Section, the term “Lender” includes any Issuing Bank and the term “applicable law” includes FATCA. For purposes of determining withholding Taxes imposed under FATCA, the Loan Parties and the Administrative Agent shall treat (and the Lenders and the Issuing Banks hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to treat) this Agreement as not qualifying as a “grandfathered obligation” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1471-2(b)(2)(i).
SECTION 2.18. Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs. (a) Each Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder or under any other Loan Document (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of LC Disbursements or otherwise) prior to the time expressly required hereunder or under



83

such other Loan Document for such payment or, if no such time is expressly required, prior to 1:00 p.m., Local Time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without defense, set-off, recoupment or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders to such account as the Administrative Agent shall from time to time specify in one or more notices delivered to the Company, except that payments to be made directly to an Issuing Bank or a Swingline Lender as expressly provided herein shall be made directly to such parties and payments pursuant to Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.20 and 11.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment under any Loan Document shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. All payments hereunder of principal or interest in respect of any Loan, B/A or LC Disbursement shall, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, be made in the currency of such Loan, B/A or LC Disbursement; all other payments hereunder and under each other Loan Document shall be made in US Dollars. Any payment required to be made by the Administrative Agent hereunder shall be deemed to have been made by the time required if the Administrative Agent shall, at or before such time, have taken the necessary steps to make such payment in accordance with the regulations or operating procedures of the clearing or settlement system used by the Administrative Agent to make such payment.
(b) If at any time insufficient funds are received by the Administrative Agent from any Borrower (or from the Company as guarantor of the Obligations of such Borrower pursuant to Article X) and available to pay fully all amounts of principal, unreimbursed LC Disbursements, interest and fees then due from such Borrower hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due from such Borrower hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties and (ii) second, towards payment of principal of the Loans and B/As and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due from such Borrower hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of such principal then due to such parties.
(c) If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of its Loans, B/As, participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans or accrued interest on any of the foregoing (collectively, “Claims”) resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Claims than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Claims of the other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amounts of their respective Claims; provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of



84

the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by any Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (for the avoidance of doubt, as it may be amended from time to time) or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Claims to any Eligible Assignee or participant, other than to the Company or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply). Each Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Company and each Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Company or such Borrower in the amount of such participation.
(d) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of any Lenders or Issuing Bank hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the applicable Lenders or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, the amount due. In such event, if such Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each applicable Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or Issuing Bank with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of (A) if denominated in US Dollars, the greater of (x) the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (y) a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation and (B) if denominated in any other currency, the greater of (x) the rate reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent to be the cost to it of funding such amount and (y) a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
(e) If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.04(c), 2.05(d), 2.05(e), 2.07(b), 2.18(d) or 11.03(c), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by it for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.
SECTION 2.19. Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15 or 2.20, or if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its affected Loans or other extensions of credit hereunder or to assign its affected rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such



85

designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.15, 2.17 or 2.20, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrowers hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(b) If (i) any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15 or 2.20, (ii) any Loan Party is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, (iii) any Lender is a Defaulting Lender or (iv) any Lender has failed to consent to a proposed amendment, waiver, discharge or termination that under Section 11.02 requires the consent of all the Lenders (or all the affected Lenders or all the Lenders of the affected Class) and with respect to which the Required Lenders (or, in circumstances where Section 11.02 does not require the consent of the Required Lenders, a majority in interest of the Lenders of the affected Class) shall have granted their consent, then the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 11.04), all its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Sections 2.15, 2.17 and 2.20) and obligations under the Loan Documents (or, in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from a failure to provide a consent, all its interests, rights (other than such existing rights) and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as a Lender of a particular Class) to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (A) the Company shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent (and, if a Commitment or LC Exposure or Swingline Exposure is being assigned, each Issuing Bank or the applicable Swingline Lender, as the case may be), which consent, in each case, shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, (B) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and B/As and funded participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder (if applicable, in each case only to the extent such amounts relate to its interest as a Lender of a particular Class) from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal, funded participations and accrued interest and fees) or the applicable Borrower (in the case of all other amounts), (C) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.15 or 2.20 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.17, such assignment will result in a material reduction in such compensation or payments, (D) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law and (E) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from the failure to provide a consent, the assignee shall have given such consent and, as a result of such assignment and delegation and any contemporaneous assignments and delegations and consents, the applicable amendment, waiver, discharge or termination can be effected. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply. Each party hereto agrees that an assignment and delegation required pursuant to this paragraph may be effected pursuant to an Assignment and



86

Assumption executed by the Company, the Administrative Agent and the assignee and that the Lender required to make such assignment and delegation need not be a party thereto.
SECTION 2.20. Foreign Subsidiary Costs. (a) If the cost to any Lender or Issuing Bank of making, continuing, converting to or maintaining any Loan to, or accepting and purchasing any B/A (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan or to accept and purchase any such B/A) of, or participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or Swingline Loan issued for the account of or made to, any Borrower is increased (or the amount of any sum received or receivable by any Lender (or its applicable lending office) is reduced) by an amount deemed in good faith by such Lender or Issuing Bank to be material, by reason of the fact that such Borrower is incorporated in, or conducts business in, a jurisdiction outside the United States of America, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland or Canada, such Borrower shall indemnify such Lender or Issuing Bank for such increased cost or reduction within 15 days after demand by such Lender or Issuing Bank (with a copy to the Administrative Agent). A certificate of such Lender or Issuing Bank claiming compensation under this paragraph and setting forth the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder (and the basis for the calculation of such amount or amounts) shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.
(b) Each Lender and Issuing Bank will promptly notify the Company and the Administrative Agent of any event of which it has knowledge that will entitle such Lender or Issuing Bank to additional interest or payments pursuant to paragraph (a) above, but in any event within 45 days after such Lender or Issuing Bank obtains actual knowledge thereof; provided that (i) if any Lender or Issuing Bank fails to give such notice within 45 days after it obtains actual knowledge of such an event, such Lender or Issuing Bank shall, with respect to compensation payable pursuant to this Section in respect of any costs or reductions resulting from such event, only be entitled to payment under this Section for costs or reductions incurred from and after the date 45 days prior to the date that such Lender or Issuing Bank does give such notice and (ii) each Lender will designate a different applicable lending office, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and will not be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.
(c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lender shall be entitled to compensation under this Section to the extent the applicable Borrower is a Borrower at the time such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement, except to the extent that such Lender’s assignor was entitled immediately prior to the assignment to such Lender to receive compensation with respect to such increased costs or reductions pursuant to this Section.
(d) The foregoing provisions of this Section shall not apply to Taxes imposed on or with respect to payments made by the Borrowers hereunder or Other Taxes, which Taxes shall be governed in each case solely by Section 2.17.
SECTION 2.21. Designation of Borrowing Subsidiaries. The Company may at any time and from time to time designate any US Subsidiary, UK Subsidiary, Irish Subsidiary or Canadian Subsidiary or, with the prior written consent of each Lender and



87

Issuing Bank, any other Subsidiary, as a Borrower, in each case by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Borrower Joinder Agreement executed by such Subsidiary and by the Company, and upon such delivery and the satisfaction of the other conditions set forth in Section 4.02, such Subsidiary shall for all purposes of this Agreement be a Borrower and a party to this Agreement. Any Borrowing Subsidiary shall continue to be a Borrowing Subsidiary until the Company shall have executed and delivered to the Administrative Agent a Borrower Termination Agreement with respect to such Subsidiary, whereupon such Subsidiary shall cease to be a Borrowing Subsidiary hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) no Borrower Joinder Agreement shall become effective as to any Subsidiary if, within a period of time after the delivery of the applicable Borrower Joinder Agreement to be reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or Issuing Bank shall have advised the Administrative Agent in writing that it shall be unlawful for such Subsidiary to become a Borrower hereunder or, in the case of any Lender or Issuing Bank participating in a Tranche under which such Subsidiary may borrow or obtain other extensions of credit, it shall be unlawful for such Lender or Issuing Bank to make Loans or otherwise extend credit to such Subsidiary as provided herein and (b) no Borrower Termination Agreement will become effective as to any Borrowing Subsidiary until all Loans made to and B/As drawn by such Borrowing Subsidiary shall have been repaid, all Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrowing Subsidiary have been drawn in full or have expired and all amounts payable by such Borrowing Subsidiary in respect of LC Disbursements, interest and/or fees (and, to the extent notified by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Bank, any other amounts payable hereunder by such Borrowing Subsidiary) shall have been paid in full; provided that such Borrower Termination Agreement shall be effective to terminate the right of such Borrowing Subsidiary to request or receive further extensions of credit under this Agreement. As soon as practicable upon receipt of a Borrower Joinder Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall send a copy thereof to each Lender and Issuing Bank.
SECTION 2.22. Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
(a) the facility fees shall continue to accrue on the amount of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.12(a) only to the extent of the Revolving Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender (excluding any portion thereof constituting Swingline Exposure or LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender that is subject to reallocation under clause (c)(i) below);
(b) the Commitments and Revolving Credit Exposures of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether the Required Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification pursuant to Section 11.02); provided that any amendment, waiver or other modification requiring the consent of all Lenders or all Lenders affected thereby shall, except as otherwise provided in Section 11.02, require the consent of such Defaulting Lender in accordance with the terms hereof;



88

(c) if any Swingline Exposure or LC Exposure exists at the time such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then:
(i)     all or any part of the Swingline Exposures and LC Exposures of such Defaulting Lender (other than (A) any portion of such Swingline Exposure (1) referred to in clause (b) of the definition of the terms Tranche One Swingline Exposure or Tranche Two Swingline Exposure or (2) with respect to which such Defaulting Lender shall have funded its participation as contemplated by Section 2.04(c) and (B) any portion of such LC Exposure attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements with respect to which such Defaulting Lender shall have funded its participation as contemplated by Sections 2.05(d) and 2.05(e)) shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Tranche One Lenders or non-Defaulting Tranche Two Lenders, as applicable, in proportion to their respective Tranche One Percentages or Tranche Two Percentages, as applicable, but only to the extent that (A) the sum of all non-Defaulting Tranche One Lenders’ Tranche One Revolving Credit Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Tranche One Swingline Exposure (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical clause above) and Tranche One LC Exposure (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical clause above) does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Tranche One Lenders’ Tranche One Commitments and (B) the sum of all non-Defaulting Tranche Two Lenders’ Tranche Two Revolving Credit Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Tranche Two Swingline Exposure (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical clause above) and Tranche Two LC Exposure (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical clause above) does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Tranche Two Lenders’ Tranche Two Commitments; provided that this clause (c)(i) shall not apply if, at the time the reallocation provided for herein would otherwise have been made, an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing;
(ii) if the reallocations described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrowers shall, within one Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above), (x) first, prepay the portion of such Swingline Exposure (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical in such clause (i)) that has not been reallocated and (y) second, cash collateralize for the benefit of the Issuing Banks the Borrowers’ obligations corresponding to the portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical in such clause (i)) that has not been reallocated, such cash collateralization to be in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.05(i) for so long as such LC Exposure is outstanding;
(iii) if the Borrowers cash collateralize any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.12(b) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure during the period such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure is cash collateralized;



89

(iv) if the LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender is reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above, then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Sections 2.12(a) and 2.12(b) shall be adjusted in accordance with the amounts of such LC Exposure allocated to the non-Defaulting Lenders;
(v) if all or any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Swingline Exposure that is subject to reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above is neither reallocated nor reduced pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Swingline Lenders or any other Lender hereunder, all facility fees that otherwise would have been payable under Section 2.12(a) to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such portion of its Swingline Exposure shall be payable to the applicable Swingline Lender until and to the extent that such Swingline Exposure is reallocated and/or reduced to zero; and
(vi) if all or any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure that is subject to reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above is neither reallocated nor cash collateralized pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Issuing Banks or any other Lender hereunder, all facility fees that otherwise would have been payable under Section 2.12(a) to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such portion of its LC Exposure, and all letter of credit fees payable under Section 2.12(b) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure, shall be payable to the Issuing Banks (and allocated among them ratably based on the amount of such portion of the LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender attributable to Letters of Credit issued by each Issuing Bank) until and to the extent that such LC Exposure is reallocated and/or cash collateralized; and
(d) so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender, no Swingline Lender shall be required to fund any Swingline Loan, and no Issuing Bank shall be required to issue, amend, renew or extend any Letter of Credit, unless it is satisfied that the Defaulting Lender’s Swingline Exposure and LC Exposure will be 100% reallocated to the non-Defaulting Lenders and/or cash collateralized as provided above, and participating interests in any newly made Swingline Loan or any newly issued or increased Letter of Credit shall be allocated among non-Defaulting Lenders of the applicable Tranche in a manner consistent with Section 2.22(c)(i) (and such Defaulting Lender shall not participate therein).
If (i) a Bankruptcy Event or a Bail-In Action with respect to a parent entity of any Lender shall occur following the Restatement Effective Date and for so long as such event shall continue or (ii) a Swingline Lender or an Issuing Bank has a good faith belief that any Lender has defaulted in fulfilling its obligations under one or more other agreements in which such Lender commits to extend credit, such Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loan and such Issuing Bank shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless such Swingline Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, shall have entered into arrangements with the Borrowers or such Lender, reasonably satisfactory to such Swingline Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, to eliminate any risk to it in respect of such Lender hereunder.



90

In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Company, each Swingline Lender and each Issuing Bank shall agree that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then the Swingline Exposures and LC Exposures of the Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Commitments and on such date such Lender shall purchase at par such of the Tranche One Loans and/or Tranche Two Loans of the other Lenders, and such funded participations in Swingline Loans and LC Disbursements, as the Administrative Agent shall determine to be necessary in order for the Lenders to hold such Loans and funded participations in accordance with their applicable Tranche Percentages, and such Lender shall thereupon cease to be a Defaulting Lender (but shall not be entitled to receive any fees accrued during the period when it was a Defaulting Lender, and all amendments, waivers or modifications effected without its consent in accordance with the provisions of Section 11.02 and this Section during such period shall be binding on it).
The rights and remedies against, and with respect to, a Defaulting Lender under this Section 2.22 are in addition to, and cumulative and not in limitation of, all other rights and remedies that the Administrative Agent and each Lender, each Issuing Bank, the Swingline Lender, the Company or any other Loan Party may at any time have against, or with respect to, such Defaulting Lender.
ARTICLE III

Representations and Warranties
The Company represents and warrants, and each Borrower represents and warrants as to itself and its subsidiaries, to the Lenders that:
SECTION 3.01. Organization; Powers. Each Loan Party is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, has all requisite power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted and, except where the failure to do so, individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, is qualified to do business and is in good standing in every jurisdiction where such qualification is required.
SECTION 3.02. Authorization; Enforceability. The Transactions to be entered into by each Loan Party are within such Loan Party’s corporate, partnership or other applicable powers and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate, partnership and, if required, stockholder or other equityholder action. This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by each Borrower and constitutes, and each other Loan Document to which any Loan Party is to be a party, when executed and delivered by such Loan Party, will constitute, a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Borrower or Loan Party (as the case may be), enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.

ARTICLE VIII

The Administrative Agent
Each of the Lenders and the Issuing Banks hereby irrevocably appoints the entity named as Administrative Agent in the heading of this Agreement and its successors to serve as administrative agent under the Loan Documents, and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such actions and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of the Loan Documents, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.
The Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender or an Issuing Bank as any other Lender or Issuing Bank and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not the Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders or the Issuing Banks.
The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, and its duties hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall be administrative in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) the Administrative Agent shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing (and it is



108

understood and agreed that the use of the term “agent” herein or in any other Loan Documents (or any other similar term) with reference to the Administrative Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law, and that such term is used as a matter of market custom and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties), (b) the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or to exercise any discretionary power, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Loan Documents that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith to be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in the Loan Documents), provided that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion, could expose the Administrative Agent to liability or be contrary to any Loan Document or applicable law, and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to Company, any Subsidiary or any other Affiliate of any of the foregoing that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith to be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in the Loan Documents) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or wilful misconduct (such absence to be presumed unless otherwise determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by a final and non-appealable judgment). The Administrative Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof (stating that it is a “Notice of Default”) is given to the Administrative Agent by the Company, a Lender or an Issuing Bank, and the Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with any Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered thereunder or in connection therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth in any Loan Document or the occurrence of any Default, (iv) the sufficiency, validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of any Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent or satisfaction of any condition that expressly refers to the matters described therein being acceptable or satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan or B/A, or the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of a Letter of Credit, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender or an Issuing Bank, the Administrative Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender or Issuing Bank unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender or Issuing Bank sufficiently in advance to the making of such Loan or B/A or the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of such Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Administrative Agent



109

shall not have any liability arising from (A) any confirmation of the Revolving Credit Exposure or the component amounts thereof (B) any determination made by it under Section 1.05 or (C) the form or substance of any Guarantee executed by any Domestic Subsidiary as contemplated by Section 6.01(e).
The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall not incur any liability for relying, upon any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person (whether or not such Person in fact meets the requirements set forth in the Loan Documents for being the signatory, sender or authenticator thereof). The Administrative Agent also shall be entitled to rely, and shall not incur any liability for relying, upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made by the proper Person (whether or not such Person in fact meets the requirements set forth in the Loan Documents for being the signatory, sender or authenticator thereof), and may act upon any such statement prior to receipt of written confirmation thereof. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for any Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.
The Administrative Agent may perform any of and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any of and all their duties and exercise their rights and powers through their respective Related Parties, including through its Toronto or London branches as applicable. The exculpatory provisions of this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and nonappealable judgment that the Administrative Agent acted with gross negligence or wilful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents.
Subject to the provisions of this paragraph, the Administrative Agent may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Company. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor, subject (except during the existence of an Event of Default) to the approval of the Company (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may on behalf of the Lenders and the Issuing Banks, appoint a successor Administrative Agent which shall be a bank with an office in New York, New York, or an Affiliate of any such bank, subject (except during the existence of an Event of Default) to the approval of



110

the Company (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Administrative Agent shall notify the Company and the Lenders that no qualifying Person has accepted such appointment, then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice and (a) the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and (b) the Required Lenders shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the removed Administrative Agent, provided that (i) all payments required to be made hereunder or under any other Loan Document to the Administrative Agent for the account of any Person other than the Administrative Agent shall be made directly to such Person and (ii) all notices and other communications required or contemplated to be given or made to the Administrative Agent shall also directly be given or made to each Lender and each Issuing Bank. The fees payable by the Company to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Company and such successor. After an Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article and Section 11.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Administrative Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as Administrative Agent.
In case of the pendency of any proceeding with respect to any Loan Party under any Federal, state or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or similar law now or hereafter in effect, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or any LC Disbursement shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on any Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered (but not obligated) by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:
(a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, LC Exposure and all other obligations under the Loan Documents that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Administrative Agent (including any claim under Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.20 and 11.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and
(b) to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;
and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender and each Issuing Bank to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent



111

shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders or the Issuing Banks, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due to it, in its capacity as the Administrative Agent, under the Loan Documents (including under Section 11.03). Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender or any Issuing Bank any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the obligations or the rights of any Lender or Issuing Bank, or to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender or Issuing Bank in any such proceeding.
Each Lender and Issuing Bank acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers or any other Lender or Issuing Bank, or any of the Related Parties of any of the foregoing, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender and Issuing Bank also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers or any other Lender or Issuing Bank, or any of the Related Parties of any of the foregoing, and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
Each Lender, by becoming a party to this Agreement, shall be deemed to have acknowledged receipt of, and consented to and approved, each Loan Document and each other document required to be delivered to, or be approved by or satisfactory to, the Administrative Agent or the Lenders on the Restatement Effective Date.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, neither any Arranger nor any Person named on the cover page of this Agreement as a Syndication Agent or a Documentation Agent shall have any duties or obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document (except in its capacity, as applicable, as a Lender or an Issuing Bank), but all such Persons shall have the benefit of the indemnities provided for hereunder.
Each Lender (x) represents and warrants, as of the date such Person became a Lender party hereto, to, and (y) covenants, from the date such Person became a Lender party hereto to the date such Person ceases being a Lender party hereto, for the benefit of, the Administrative Agent and the Arrangers and not, for the avoidance of doubt, to or for the benefit of the Company or any other Loan Party, that at least one of the following is and will be true:
(i)     such Lender is not using “plan assets” (within the meaning of Section 3(42) of ERISA or otherwise) of one or more Benefit Plans with respect to such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments or this Agreement,
(ii) the transaction exemption set forth in one or more PTEs, such as PTE 84-14 (a class exemption for certain transactions determined by independent



112

qualified professional asset managers), PTE 95-60 (a class exemption for certain transactions involving insurance company general accounts), PTE 90-1 (a class exemption for certain transactions involving insurance company pooled separate accounts), PTE 91-38 (a class exemption for certain transactions involving bank collective investment funds) or PTE 96-23 (a class exemption for certain transactions determined by in-house asset managers), is applicable with respect to such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement,
(iii) (A) such Lender is an investment fund managed by a “Qualified Professional Asset Manager” (within the meaning of Part VI of PTE 84-14), (B) such Qualified Professional Asset Manager made the investment decision on behalf of such Lender to enter into, participate in, administer and perform the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement, (C) the entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement satisfies the requirements of sub-sections (b) through (g) of Part I of PTE 84-14 and (D) to the best knowledge of such Lender, the requirements of subsection (a) of Part I of PTE 84-14 are satisfied with respect to such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement, or
(iv) such other representation, warranty and covenant as may be agreed in writing between the Administrative Agent and the Arrangers in their sole discretion, and such Lender.
In addition, unless either the immediately preceding clause (i) is true with respect to a Lender or (ii) a Lender has provided another representation, warranty and covenant in accordance with the immediately preceding clause (a), such Lender further (x) represents and warrants, as of the date such Person became a Lender party hereto, to, and (y) covenants, from the date such Person became a Lender party hereto to the date such Person ceases being a Lender party hereto, for the benefit of, the Administrative Agent and the Arrangers, and not, for the avoidance of doubt, to or for the benefit of the Company or any other Loan Party, that the Administrative Agent and the Arrangers are not fiduciaries with respect to the assets of such Lender involved in such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement (including in connection with the reservation or exercise of any rights by the Administrative Agent or the Arrangers under this Agreement, any Loan Document or any documents related hereto or thereto).
The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Issuing Banks, and, except solely to the extent of the Company’s right to approve a successor Administrative Agent as set forth above, none of the Company or any other Loan Party shall have any rights as a third-party beneficiary of any such provisions.



113

ARTICLE IX

Collection Allocation Mechanism
On the CAM Exchange Date, (a) the Commitments shall automatically and without further act be terminated as provided in Article VII, (b) each Lender shall become obligated to fund, within one Business Day, all participations in outstanding Swingline Loans held by it (it being agreed that the CAM Exchange shall not result in a reallocation of such funding obligations, but only of the funded participations resulting therefrom) and (c) the Lenders shall automatically and without further act be deemed to have made reciprocal purchases of interests in the Designated Obligations such that, in lieu of the interests of each Lender in the particular Designated Obligations that it shall own as of such date and immediately prior to the CAM Exchange, such Lender shall own an interest equal to such Lender’s CAM Percentage in each Designated Obligation. Each Lender, each Person acquiring a participation from any Lender as contemplated by Section 11.04 and each Borrower hereby consents and agrees to the CAM Exchange. Each Borrower and each Lender agrees from time to time to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent all such promissory notes and other instruments and documents as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request to evidence and confirm the respective interests and obligations of the Lenders after giving effect to the CAM Exchange, and each Lender agrees to surrender any promissory notes originally received by it hereunder to the Administrative Agent against delivery of any promissory notes so executed and delivered; provided that the failure of any Borrower to execute or deliver or of any Lender to accept any such promissory note, instrument or document shall not affect the validity or effectiveness of the CAM Exchange.
As a result of the CAM Exchange, on and after the CAM Exchange Date, each payment received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any Loan Document in respect of the Designated Obligations shall be distributed to the Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective CAM Percentages (to be redetermined as of each such date of payment or distribution to the extent required by the next paragraph), but giving effect to assignments after the CAM Exchange Date, it being understood that nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit the assignment of a proportionate part of all an assigning Lender’s rights and obligations in respect of a single Class of Commitments or Loans.
In the event that, after the CAM Exchange, the aggregate amount of the Designated Obligations shall change as a result of the making of an LC Disbursement of either Tranche by an Issuing Bank that is not reimbursed by the applicable Borrower, then (a) each Lender of such Tranche shall, in accordance with Section 2.05(d), promptly purchase from the applicable Issuing Bank a participation in such LC Disbursement in the amount of such Lender’s Tranche One Percentage or Tranche Two Percentage, as the case may be, of such LC Disbursement (without giving effect to the CAM Exchange), (b) the Administrative Agent shall redetermine the CAM Percentages after giving effect to such LC Disbursement and the purchase of participations therein by the applicable Lenders, and the Lenders shall automatically and without further act be deemed to have made reciprocal purchases of interests in the Designated Obligations such that each Lender shall own an interest equal to



114

such Lender’s CAM Percentage in each of the Designated Obligations and (c) in the event distributions shall have been made in accordance with the preceding paragraph, the Lenders shall make such payments to one another as shall be necessary in order that the amounts received by them shall be equal to the amounts they would have received had each LC Disbursement been outstanding immediately prior to the CAM Exchange. Each such redetermination shall be binding on each of the Lenders and their successors and assigns and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
ARTICLE X

Guarantee
In order to induce the Lenders and the Issuing Banks to extend credit hereunder, the Company hereby irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, the payment when and as due of the Obligations. The Company further agrees that the due and punctual payment of such Obligations may be extended or renewed, in whole or in part, without notice to or further assent from it, and that it will remain bound upon its guarantee hereunder notwithstanding any such extension or renewal of any such Obligation.
The Company waives presentment to, demand of payment from and protest to any Borrower or other obligor of any of the Obligations, and also waives notice of acceptance of its obligations and notice of protest for nonpayment. The obligations of the Company hereunder shall not be affected by (a) the failure of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy against any Loan Party under the provisions of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or otherwise, (b) any extension or renewal of any of the Obligations, (c) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or release from, any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement, or any other Loan Document or agreement, (d) any default, failure or delay, wilful or otherwise, in the performance of any of the Obligations, (e) any decree or order, or any law or regulation of any jurisdiction or event affecting any term of an Obligation or (f) any other act, omission or delay to do any other act which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of the Company or otherwise operate as a discharge of a guarantor as a matter of law or equity or which would impair or eliminate any right of the Company to subrogation or any other circumstance that might constitute a defense of the Company or any other Borrower or obligor, and any defense arising from the foregoing is hereby waived.
The Company further agrees that its agreement hereunder constitutes a guarantee of payment when due (whether or not any bankruptcy or similar proceeding shall have stayed the accrual or collection of any of the Obligations or operated as a discharge thereof) and not merely of collection, and waives any right to require that any resort be had by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of the Administrative Agent or any Lender in favor of any Borrower or any other Person.



115

The obligations of the Company hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason (other than the indefeasible payment in full of all the Obligations), and any defense or set-off, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever, by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of any of the Obligations, any impossibility in the performance of any of the Obligations or otherwise (other than for the indefeasible payment in full of all the Obligations) is hereby waived.
The Company further agrees that its obligations hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of any Borrower or other obligor or otherwise.
In furtherance of the foregoing, and not in limitation of any other right, the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have at law or in equity against the Company by virtue hereof, upon the failure of any other Borrower or other obligor to pay any Obligation when and as the same shall become due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, the Company hereby promises to and will, upon receipt of written demand by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Administrative Agent or Lender in cash an amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of such Obligation then due, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon. The Company further agrees that if payment in respect of any Obligation shall be due in a currency other than US Dollars and/or at a place of payment other than New York and if, by reason of any Change in Law, disruption of currency or foreign exchange markets, war or civil disturbance or other event, payment of such Obligation in such currency or at such place of payment shall be impossible or, in the reasonable judgment of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, not consistent with the protection of its rights or interests, then, at the election of the Administrative Agent, the Company shall make payment of such Obligation in US Dollars (based upon the applicable Exchange Rate in effect on the date of payment) and/or in New York, and shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender against any losses or reasonable out-of-pocket expenses that it shall sustain as a result of such alternative payment.
Upon payment by the Company of any sums as provided above, all rights of the Company against any Borrower or other obligor arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation or otherwise shall in all respects be subordinated and junior in right of payment to the prior indefeasible payment in full of all the Obligations owed by such Borrower or other obligor to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders.

SECTION 11.02. Waivers; Amendments. (a) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of any Loan Document or consent to any departure by any Loan Party therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the making of a Loan, acceptance and purchase of a B/A or issuance of a Letter of Credit shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default, regardless of whether the



118

Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Bank may have had notice or knowledge of such Default at the time.
(b) Except as provided in Section 11.02(c), none of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any provision hereof or thereof may be waived, amended or modified except, in the case of this Agreement, pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Company and the Required Lenders or, in the case of any other Loan Document, pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Administrative Agent and the Loan Party or Loan Parties that are parties thereto, in each case with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such agreement shall (i) increase any Commitment of any Lender without the written consent of such Lender, (ii) reduce the principal amount of any Loan, payment obligation in respect of a B/A or LC Disbursement or reduce the rate of interest thereon, or reduce any fees payable hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (iii) postpone the scheduled maturity of any Loan or B/A, or the required date of reimbursement of any LC Disbursement, or any scheduled date for the payment of any interest or fees payable hereunder (in each case, other than as a result of any waiver of any default interest applicable pursuant to Section 2.13(h)), or reduce the amount of, waive or excuse any such payment, or postpone the scheduled date of expiration of any Commitment (in each case, other than as a result of any waiver of any default interest applicable pursuant to Section 2.13(h)), without the written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (iv) change Section 2.05(c) to permit any Letter of Credit to expire after the date specified in such Section without the written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (v) change Section 2.18(b) or 2.18(c) in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby, without the written consent of each Lender, (vi) change any of the provisions of this Section or the percentage set forth in the definition of “Required Lenders” or any other provision of any Loan Document specifying the number or percentage of Lenders (or Lenders of any Class) required to waive, amend or modify any rights thereunder or make any determination or grant any consent thereunder, without the written consent of each Lender (or each Lender of such Class, as the case may be), (vii) release the Company from its Guarantee under Article X, or limit the liability of the Company in respect of such Guarantee, without the written consent of each Lender or (viii) change any provision of any Loan Document in a manner that by its terms adversely affects the rights in respect of payments or prepayments due to Lenders with Commitments or Obligations of any Class differently than those with Commitments or Obligations of any other Class, without the written consent of Lenders holding a majority in interest of the Commitments and outstanding Revolving Loans and B/As of the adversely affected Class; provided further that (A) no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Swingline Lender without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Bank or such Swingline Lender, as the case may be, and (B) any waiver, amendment or modification of this Agreement that by its terms affects the rights or duties under this Agreement of Lenders under one Tranche (but not of Lenders under the other Tranche) may be effected by an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Company and requisite percentage in interest of the Lenders under the affected Tranche.



119

(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in paragraph (b) of this Section:
(i)     any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document may be amended by an agreement in writing entered into by the Company and the Administrative Agent to cure any ambiguity, omission, defect or inconsistency so long as, in each case, the Lenders shall have received at least five Business Days’ prior written notice thereof and the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five Business Days of the date of such notice to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that the Required Lenders object to such amendment;
(ii) any provision of this Agreement may be amended by an agreement in writing entered into by the Company, the Required Lenders and the Administrative Agent (and, if their rights or obligations are affected thereby, the Issuing Banks and the Swingline Lenders) if (1) by the terms of such agreement the Commitments of each Lender not consenting to the amendment provided for therein shall terminate upon the effectiveness of such amendment and (2) at the time such amendment becomes effective, each Lender not consenting thereto receives payment in full of the principal of and interest accrued on each Loan made and B/A accepted by it and all other amounts owing to it or accrued for its account under this Agreement;
(iii) any amendment of the definition of the term “Applicable Rate” pursuant to the last sentence of such definition shall require only the written consent of the Company and the Required Lenders;

(vi) in connection with the addition of any new currency as a Designated Currency under any Tranche in accordance with the definition of such term, this Agreement (including the Exhibits hereto) may be amended by an agreement in writing entered into by the Company and the Administrative Agent to provide for such technical modifications as they determine to be necessary or advisable in connection therewith;
(vii) the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Bank may enter into agreements referred to in Section 2.05(j), and the term “LC Commitment”, as such term is used in reference to such Issuing Bank, may be modified as contemplated by the definition of such term; and



120

(viii) no consent with respect to any amendment, waiver or other modification of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be required of any Defaulting Lender, except with respect to any amendment, waiver or other modification referred to in clause (i), (ii) or (iii) of Section 11.02(b) and then only in the event such Defaulting Lender shall be affected by such amendment, waiver or other modification.
(d) The Administrative Agent may, but shall have no obligation to, with the concurrence of any Lender, execute amendments, waivers or other modifications on behalf of such Lender. Any amendment, waiver or other modification effected in accordance with this Section 11.02 shall be binding upon each Person that is at the time thereof a Lender and each Person that subsequently becomes a Lender.
SECTION 11.03. Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. (a) The Company shall pay (i) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers and their Affiliates, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of outside counsel for the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers and their Affiliates, in connection with the structuring, arrangement and syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein, the preparation and administration of the Loan Documents or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated), (ii) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Issuing Banks in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder and (iii) all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent or any Arranger, Issuing Bank or Lender, including the fees, charges and disbursements of any outside counsel for the Administrative Agent or such Arranger, Issuing Bank or Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with the Loan Documents, including its rights under this Section, or in connection with the Loans made, the B/As accepted and purchased or the Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans, B/As or Letters of Credit.
(b) The Company shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Arranger, each Issuing Bank and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, penalties, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any outside counsel for any Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the structuring, arrangement and syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein, (ii) the execution or delivery of any Loan Document or any other agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the performance by the parties to the Loan Documents of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or the consummation of the Transactions or any other transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, (iii) any Loan, B/A or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds therefrom (including any refusal by an Issuing Bank to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents

(c) To the extent that the Company fails to pay any amount required to be paid by it to the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) or any Issuing Bank or Swingline Lender, or any Related Party of any of the foregoing, under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent), such Issuing Bank or Swingline Lender, or such Related Party, as the case may be, such Lender’s pro rata share (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent (or such sub-agent), such Issuing Bank or such Swingline Lender in its capacity or in fulfilling its role as such, or against any Related Party of any of the foregoing acting for the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent), any Issuing Bank or any Swingline Lender in connection with such capacity. For purposes of this paragraph, a Lender’s “pro rata share” shall be determined based upon its share of the sum of the aggregate Revolving Credit Exposures (provided that, for purposes of this definition, the Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender that is a Swingline Lender shall be deemed to exclude any amount of its Tranche One Swingline Exposure in excess of its Tranche One Percentage of all outstanding Tranche One Swingline Loans and any amount of its Tranche Two Swingline Exposure in excess of its Tranche Two Percentage of all outstanding Tranche Two Swingline Loans, and the unused Commitments of such Lender shall be determined without regard to any such excess amounts) and unused Commitments at the time (or most recently outstanding and in effect).

(e) All amounts due under this Section shall be payable promptly after written demand therefor.



122

SECTION 11.04. Successors and Assigns. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby (including any Affiliate of any Issuing Bank that issues any Letter of Credit), except that (i) the Borrowers may not assign or otherwise transfer any of their rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by any Borrower without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby (including any Affiliate of any Issuing Bank that issues any Letter of Credit), Participants (to the extent provided in paragraph (f) of this Section), the Arrangers, the Syndication Agents, the Documentation Agents and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the sub-agents of the Administrative Agent and the Related Parties of any of the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers, the Syndication Agents, the Documentation Agents, any Issuing Bank and any Lender) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.
(b) (i) Subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (b)(ii) below, any Lender may assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments under any Tranche and the Loans and other amounts at the time owing to it under any Tranche) with the prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) of:
(A) the Company; provided that (x) no consent of the Company shall be required for an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender, an Approved Fund or, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any other assignee, and (y) the Company shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five Business Days after having received written notice thereof;
(B) the Administrative Agent;
(C) each Issuing Bank; and
(D) each Swingline Lender that shall have agreed to make Swingline Loans under the applicable Tranche.
(ii) Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:
(A) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of any Commitment of the assigning Lender, the amount of each Commitment of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than US$5,000,000 unless each of the Company and the Administrative Agent shall otherwise consent; provided that (x) no such consent of the Company shall be



123

required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and (y) the Company shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five Business Days after having received written notice thereof;
(B) each partial assignment of a Commitment and extensions of credit under a Tranche shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under such Tranche;
(C) the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Assumption (or an agreement incorporating by reference a form of Assignment and Assumption posted on the Electronic System), together with a processing and recordation fee of US$3,500; and
(D) the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent any tax forms required by Section 2.17 and an Administrative Questionnaire in which the assignee designates one or more credit contacts to whom all syndicate-level information (which may contain MNPI) will be made available and who may receive such information in accordance with the assignee’s compliance procedures and applicable laws, including Federal, State and foreign securities laws.
(c) Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption, the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.20 and 11.03). Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (f) of this Section.
(d) The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as an agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain at one of its offices in The City of New York a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and records of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amounts (and stated interest) owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for



124

inspection by any Borrower, Issuing Bank and Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
(e) Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption (or an agreement incorporating by reference a form of Assignment and Assumption posted on the Electronic System) executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register. No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph.
(f) Any Lender may, without the consent of the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or any other Lender, sell participations to one or more Eligible Assignees (each a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and its Loans and other extensions of credit hereunder); provided that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (iii) the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce the Loan Documents and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of the Loan Documents; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 11.02(b) that affects such Participant. Each Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17 and 2.20 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 2.17(f) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.17(f) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section; provided that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Sections 2.18 and 2.19 as if it were an assignee under paragraph (b) of this Section; and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.15, 2.17 or 2.20, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. Each Lender that sells a participation agrees, at the Company’s request and expense, to use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Company to effectuate the provisions of Section 2.19(b) with respect to any Participant. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 11.08 as though it were a Lender; provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.18(c) as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers,



125

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 the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any Commitments, Loans, Letters of Credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan, Letter of Credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, 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. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
(g) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or other central bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
SECTION 11.05. Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Loan Parties in the Loan Documents and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents and the making of any Loans, the acceptance and purchase of any B/As and the issuance of any Letters of Credit, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid or any Letter of Credit is outstanding and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything else to the contrary set forth in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, in the event that an Issuing Bank shall have provided to the Administrative Agent a written consent to the release of the Lenders from their obligations hereunder with respect to any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank (whether as a result of the obligations of the applicable Borrower in respect of such Letter of Credit having been collateralized in full by a deposit of cash with such Issuing Bank, or being supported by a letter of credit that names such Issuing Bank as the beneficiary thereunder, or otherwise), then from and after such time such Letter of Credit shall cease to be a “Letter of Credit” outstanding hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including for purposes of determining whether the Borrowers



126

are required to comply with Articles V and VI hereof, but excluding Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.20 and 11.03 and any expense reimbursement or indemnity provisions set forth in any other Loan Document), and the Lenders shall be deemed to have no participations in such Letter of Credit, and no obligations with respect thereto, under Section 2.05(d) or 2.05(e). The provisions of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.20 and 11.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans and B/As, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.
SECTION 11.06. Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness; Electronic Execution. (a) This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. This Agreement, the other Loan Documents, any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent or to the Arrangers and their Affiliates and any provisions in any commitment letter executed and delivered by the Company in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby that by the express terms of such commitment letter survive the execution or effectiveness of this Agreement constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement shall become effective as provided in the Restatement Agreement, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by facsimile or other electronic imaging means shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.
(b) The words “execution”, “signed”, “signature”, “delivery” and words of like import in or relating to any document to be signed in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include Electronic Signatures, deliveries 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, physical delivery thereof 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; provided that nothing herein shall require the Administrative Agent to accept electronic signatures in any form or format without its prior written consent.
SECTION 11.07. Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.



127

SECTION 11.08. Right of Setoff. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender and Issuing Bank and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender, Issuing Bank or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of the Company or any Borrower against any of and all the obligations of the Company, whether in its capacity as a Borrower or guarantor, or any other such Borrower now or hereafter existing under this Agreement held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender or Issuing Bank shall have made any demand under this Agreement and although such obligations may be unmatured. The rights of each Lender and Issuing Bank under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender or Issuing Bank may have.
SECTION 11.09. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process. (a) This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York.
(b) Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York and the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to any Loan Document, and each of the Borrowers hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding brought by it shall be brought, and heard and determined, exclusively in such Federal court or, in the event such Federal court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, such New York State court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document against any Borrower or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.
(c) Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
(d) Each Borrowing Subsidiary that is not a US Subsidiary hereby irrevocably designates, appoints and empowers the Company (with a mandatory copy to the Philadelphia office of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, having its address at 1701 Market Street, Philadelphia PA 19103, Attention of Michael Pedrick, Esq.), as its process agent to receive



128

for and on its behalf service of process in any legal action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement. It is understood that a copy of any such process served on the Company, as process agent, shall be promptly forwarded by registered mail by the Person commencing such proceeding to such Borrowing Subsidiary at the address specified in Section 11.01, but the failure of such Borrowing Subsidiary to receive such copy shall not affect in any way the service of such process as aforesaid.
(e) Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 11.01. Nothing in the Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.
(f) In the event any Loan Party or any of its assets has or hereafter acquires, in any jurisdiction in which judicial proceedings may at any time be commenced with respect to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, any immunity from jurisdiction, legal proceedings, attachment (whether before or after judgment), execution, judgment or setoff, such Loan Party hereby irrevocably agrees not to claim and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives such immunity.
SECTION 11.10. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.
SECTION 11.11. Headings. Article and Section headings and the Table of Contents used herein are for convenience of reference only, are not part of this Agreement and shall not affect the construction of, or be taken into consideration in interpreting, this Agreement.
SECTION 11.12. Confidentiality. The Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and each Lender agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined below), and will not use such confidential Information for any purpose or in any manner except in connection with this Agreement, except that Information may be disclosed (a) to its and its Affiliates’ Related Parties, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information



129

confidential or shall be subject to a professional obligation of confidentiality), (b) to the extent requested by any governmental, supervisory or regulatory authority purporting to have jurisdiction over it or its Affiliates (including any self-regulatory authority, such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners) (it being understood that, other than in the case of any request by any bank regulatory authority exercising examination or audit authority, it will to the extent reasonably practicable provide the Company with an opportunity to request confidential treatment from such authority), (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the enforcement of rights hereunder or thereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to the Company or any Subsidiary and its obligations, (g) with the written consent of the Company, (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or any other confidentiality agreement to which it is party with the Company or any Subsidiary or (ii) becomes available to the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Bank or such Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Company, (i) on a confidential basis to (i) any rating agency in connection with the rating of the Company or its Subsidiaries or this Agreement or (ii) the CUSIP Service Bureau or any similar agency in connection with the issuance and monitoring of CUSIP numbers with respect to this Agreement, (j) to market data collectors, similar service providers, including league table providers, to the lending industry, in each case, information of the type routinely provided to such providers and (k) to service providers to the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders in connection with the administration or servicing of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the Commitments (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential or shall be subject to a professional obligation of confidentiality). For the purposes of this Section, “Information” means all confidential information received from the Company relating to the Company or its businesses, other than any such information that is available to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by the Company. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information.
SECTION 11.13. Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the interest rate applicable to any extension of credit hereunder, together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on such extension of credit under applicable law (collectively, the “Charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the “Maximum Rate”) which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by the Lender that made such extension of credit in accordance with



130

applicable law, the rate of interest payable in respect of such extension of credit hereunder, together with all Charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would have been payable in respect of such extension of credit but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to such Lender in respect of other extensions of credit or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the NYFRB Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender.
SECTION 11.14. Certain Notices. Each Lender hereby notifies the Borrowers that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act and/or the Beneficial Ownership Regulation, it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Borrowers, which information includes the names and addresses of the Borrowers and other information that will allow such Lender to identify the Borrowers in accordance with the USA PATRIOT Act and the Beneficial Ownership Regulation. In addition, each Lender hereby notifies the Borrowers that under the Credit Reporting Act 2013 of Ireland, Lenders are required to provide personal and credit information for credit applications and credit agreements of €500 and above to the Central Credit Register of Ireland, and that this information will be held in such Central Credit Register and may be used by other lenders when making decisions on the credit applications and credit agreements of the Borrowers.
SECTION 11.15. Non-Public Information. (a) Each Lender acknowledges that all information furnished to it pursuant to this Agreement by the Company or on its behalf and relating to the Company, the Subsidiaries or their businesses may include MNPI, and confirms that it has developed compliance procedures regarding the use of MNPI and that it will handle MNPI in accordance with the procedures and applicable law, including Federal, state and foreign securities laws.
(b) All such information, including requests for waivers and amendments, furnished by the Company or the Administrative Agent pursuant to, or in the course of administering, this Agreement will be syndicate-level information, which may contain MNPI.

SECTION 11.16. Acknowledgment and Consent to Bail-In of EEA Financial Institutions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document or in any other agreement, arrangement or understanding among the parties hereto, each party hereto acknowledges that any liability of any EEA Financial Institution arising under any Loan Document, to the extent such liability is unsecured, may be subject to the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of an EEA Resolution Authority and agrees and consents to, and acknowledges to be bound by:



131

(a) the application of any Write-Down and Conversion Power by any EEA Resolution Authority to any such liabilities arising hereunder that may be payable to it by any party hereto that is an EEA Financial Institution; and
(b) the effects of any Bail-In Action on any such liability, including, if applicable, (i) a reduction in full or in part or cancelation of any such liability, (ii) a conversion of all, or a portion of, such liability into shares or other instruments of ownership in such EEA Financial Institution, its parent entity, or a bridge institution that may be issued to it or otherwise conferred on it, and that such shares or other instruments of ownership will be accepted by it in lieu of any rights with respect to any such liability under this Agreement or any other Loan Document or (iii) the variation of the terms of such liability in connection with the exercise of the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of any EEA Resolution Authority.
SECTION 11.17. No Fiduciary Duty. The Company agrees that in connection with all aspects of the Transactions and any communications in connection therewith, the Company and its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers, the Issuing Banks, the Lenders and their Affiliates, on the other hand, will have a business relationship that does not create, by implication or otherwise, any fiduciary duty on the part of the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers, the Issuing Banks, the Lenders or their Affiliates, and no such duty will be deemed to have arisen in connection with any such Transactions or communications.
SECTION 11.18. Conversion of Currencies. (a) If, for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum owing hereunder in one currency into another currency, each party hereto agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures in the relevant jurisdiction, the first currency could be purchased with such other currency on the Business Day immediately preceding the day on which final judgment is given.
(b) The obligations of each party hereto in respect of any sum due to any other party hereto or any holder of the obligations owing hereunder (the “Applicable Creditor”) shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the “Judgment Currency”) other than the currency in which such sum is stated to be due hereunder (the “Agreement Currency”), be discharged only to the extent that, on the Business Day following receipt by the Applicable Creditor of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Applicable Creditor may, in accordance with normal banking procedures in the relevant jurisdiction, purchase the Agreement Currency with the Judgment Currency; if the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Applicable Creditor in the Agreement Currency, the Company agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Applicable Creditor against such loss. The obligations of each party hereto contained in this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of all other amounts owing hereunder.



132

SECTION 11.19. Company as Agent of Borrowing Subsidiaries. Each Borrowing Subsidiary hereby irrevocably appoints the Company as its agent for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including (a) the giving and receipt of notices (including any Borrowing Request and any Interest Election Request) and (b) the execution and delivery of all documents, instruments and certificates contemplated herein. Each Borrowing Subsidiary hereby acknowledges that any amendment or other modification to this Agreement or any other Loan Document may be effected as set forth in Section 11.02, that no consent of such Borrowing Subsidiary shall be required to effect any such amendment or other modification and that such Borrowing Subsidiary shall be bound by this Agreement or any other Loan Document (if it is theretofore a party thereto) as so amended or modified.
