Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 4, 2020, CDK Global, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into: (i) Amendment No. 1 (the “TLCA Amendment”) to the Term Loan Credit Agreement dated as of August 17, 2018 with Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and the other lenders party thereto; and (ii) Amendment No. 1 (the “RCA Amendment” and, together with the TLCA Amendment, the “CA Amendments”) to the Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of August 17, 2018 with Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and the other lenders party thereto. The CA Amendments temporarily increased the maximum consolidated indebtedness to consolidated EBITDA ratio of the Company (the “Leverage Ratio”) from 3.75 to 1.00 to: (i) 4.75 to 1.00 for any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending during the period from January 1, 2020 through and including March 31, 2021; (ii) 4.25 to 1.00 for any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters of the Company ending during the period from April 1, 2021 through and including September 30, 2021; and (iii) 3.75 to 1.00 for any period of four fiscal quarters ending thereafter.

Through March 21, 2022, if at any time: (i) the Leverage Ratio exceeds 4.25 to 1.00 as of the end of any period of four consecutive fiscal quarters; or (ii) the Company’s senior unsecured credit rating established by (a) S&P is BB or worse and (b) Moody’s is Ba2 or worse (a “Trigger Event”), the Company agrees that its wholly owned material subsidiaries will guarantee its obligations under the CA Amendments pursuant to springing guaranties (each, a “Guaranty” and collectively the “Guaranties”) and the Guaranties will be secured by a first priority lien and security interest, subject to customary exceptions, in substantially all of the personal property of the Company and the guarantors, pursuant to a Security and Pledge Agreement (the "Collateral Agreement").

Through the earlier of: (i) delivery of the financial statements for the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2021, provided certain conditions are met; and (ii) completing certain collateral requirements following the occurrence of a Trigger Event, the loans under the Credit Agreements will bear interest at the margins currently set forth in the Credit Agreements plus 0.50 percent, and the commitment fee payable on the unused portion of the commitments available under the Revolving Credit Agreement will increase by 0.05 percent. In addition, the Company agrees that it will not make repurchases of its common stock in excess of $40.0 million in any fiscal year through the earlier of: (i) delivery of the financial statements for the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2021, provided certain conditions are met; and (ii) the occurrence of a Trigger Event. The Company also agreed that following the occurrence of a Trigger Event it will not pay dividends to its common stockholders in excess of $0.15 per share per fiscal quarter.

The foregoing descriptions of the CA Amendments, the Guaranties and the Collateral Agreement do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in entirety by reference to the full text of each of the CA Amendments copies of which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, hereto and are incorporated by reference herein.

(ii)          the effective date of the election made pursuant to such notice and Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;

(iii)          whether the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a LIBOR Borrowing; and
(iv)        if the resulting Borrowing is to be a LIBOR 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”.
If any such notice and Interest Election Request requests a LIBOR Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Borrower may elect a Non-Standard Interest Period on only a single occasion, and only for the purpose of causing the
37

subsequent Interest Periods under this Agreement to end on the same dates as each “Interest Period” under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreements.  Each Lender waives any “breakage” costs that it would otherwise be entitled to pursuant to Section 2.15 of any of the Existing Credit Agreements in connection with the repayment of the Existing Credit Agreements on the Closing Date.
(d)          Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each applicable Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
(e)          If the Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a LIBOR Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing.  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 (provided, that, no such notice shall be required in the case of any Event of Default under clause (h) or (i) of Article VII with respect to the Borrower), then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Borrowing may be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, each LIBOR Borrowing shall, at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, be converted to an ABR Borrowing.
(f)          To the extent that any calculation of interest required to be paid under this Agreement shall be based on (or result in) a calculation that is less than zero, such calculation shall be deemed zero for purposes of this Agreement.
SECTION 2.06.         Termination of Commitments.  The aggregate 3-Year Term Loan Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the date of the initial 3-Year Term Loan Borrowing.  The aggregate 5-Year Term Loan Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the date of the initial 5-Year Term Loan Borrowing.
SECTION 2.07.          [Reserved].
SECTION 2.08.          Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.
 (a)          The Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Loan made by such Lender to the Borrower as provided in Section 2.09.

(b)          Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the Indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan made 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 hereunder, Type thereof and, if applicable, the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof.
(d)          The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraphs (b) or (c) of this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded
38

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 the Borrower to repay the Loans or pay any other amounts due hereunder in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(e)          Any Lender may request that the Loans made by it be evidenced by a promissory note.  In such event, the Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender such a promissory note payable to such Lender (or, if requested by such Lender, to such Lender and its registered assigns) and in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit C.  Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 10.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the payee named therein (or, if such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its registered assigns). Any such promissory note issued on or after the First Amendment Effective Date shall include the following legend:
FOR THE PURPOSES OF SECTIONS 1272, 1273 AND 1275 OF THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE OF 1986, AS AMENDED, THIS NOTE IS BEING ISSUED WITH ORIGINAL ISSUE DISCOUNT. THE LENDER MAY OBTAIN THE ISSUE PRICE, AMOUNT OF ORIGINAL ISSUE DISCOUNT, ISSUE DATE AND YIELD TO MATURITY FOR THIS NOTE BY SUBMITTING A WRITTEN REQUEST FOR SUCH INFORMATION TO THE BORROWER AT THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS: 1950 Hassell Road, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169.
SECTION 2.09.          Amortization of Borrowings.
(a)          (i)          The Borrower shall repay to the 3-Year Term Loan Lenders on the Maturity Date for the 3-Year Term Loans the aggregate principal amount of all 3-Year Term Loans outstanding on such date.
(ii)          The Borrower shall repay the 5-Year Term Loans to the 5-Year Term Loan Lenders on the last day of each calendar quarter, commencing December 31, 2018 (or, if the last day of any such quarter shall not be a Business Day, then on the next succeeding Business Day), in an amount for each such payment equal to 1.25% of the aggregate principal amount of the 5-Year Term Loans made on the Closing Date; provided, that, the
final principal repayment installment of the 5-Year Term Loans shall be repaid on the Maturity Date for the 5-Year Term Loans and in any event shall be in an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of all 5-Year Term Loans outstanding on such date.

(b)        Prior to any repayment of any 5-Year Term Loans under Section 2.09(a)(ii), the Borrower shall select the Borrowing or Borrowings to be repaid and shall notify the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 2.10(d) as if such repayment were an optional prepayment.  Each repayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the 5-Year Term Loans included in the repaid Borrowing.  Repayments of 5-Year Term Loans shall be accompanied by accrued interest on the amounts repaid.
SECTION 2.10.          Prepayment of Loans.
(a)          The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing in whole or in part, subject to the requirements of this Section.
(b)          [Reserved].
39

(c)          Prior to any optional prepayment of Borrowings hereunder, the 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 Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent by telephone (confirmed by hand delivery or fax or any other form approved by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, including any form on an electronic platform or electronic transmission system as shall be approved by the Administrative Agent) of any optional prepayment hereunder (i) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three Business Days before the date of prepayment or (ii) in the case of prepayment of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the date of prepayment, or, in each case, such shorter period of time as is acceptable to the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion.  Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid; provided, that, a notice of optional prepayment may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of subsequent events (including the effectiveness of other credit facilities), in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.  Promptly following receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof.  Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Borrowing of the same Type as provided in Section 2.02.  Each voluntary prepayment of the 5-Year Term Loans shall be applied to reduce the subsequent scheduled installments (including the balance due on the Maturity Date for the 5-Year Term Loans) of the 5-Year Term Loans to be made pursuant to Section 2.09(a)(ii) as specified by the Borrower in the notice of prepayment notice delivered to the Administrative Agent (or, in the absence of any such specification, ratably in accordance with the amounts of such installments).  Each prepayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in the prepaid Borrowing.  Prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.12.
SECTION 2.11.          Fees.
 (a)          The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Lender, on the Closing Date, an upfront fee in the amount separately agreed upon between the Borrower and the Arrangers.

(b)          The Borrower 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 Borrower and the Administrative Agent.
(c)           All fees payable hereunder shall be paid in US Dollars on the dates due, in immediately available funds.  Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances.
(d)          To the extent that any calculation of any fee required to be paid under this Agreement shall be based on (or result in) a calculation that is less than zero, such calculation shall be deemed zero for purposes of this Agreement.
SECTION 2.12.          Interest.
(a)          (i)          The 3-Year Term Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate set forth under the caption “3-Year Term Loan – ABR Spread” in the definition of such term.
40

(ii)          The 5-Year Term Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate set forth under the caption “5-Year Term Loan – ABR Spread” in the definition of such term.
(b)          (i)          The 3-Year Term Loans comprising each LIBOR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate set forth under the caption “3-Year Term Loan – LIBO Rate Spread” in the definition of such term.
(ii)          The 5-Year Term Loans comprising each LIBOR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate set forth under the caption “5-Year Term Loan – LIBO Rate Spread” in the definition of such term.
(c)          [Reserved].
(d)          Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan or any fee or other amount payable by the Borrower hereunder shall not be 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, 2.00% per annum plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section or (ii) in the case of any other amount, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to 5-Year Term Loans that are ABR Loans as provided in paragraph (a)(ii) of this Section.
(e)          Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan; provided, that, (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan, 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 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 US Dollars.

(f)          All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that interest computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on Bank of America’s “prime rate” shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 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 Alternate Base Rate or Adjusted LIBO Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(g)          To the extent that any calculation of interest or any fee required to be paid under this Agreement shall be based on (or result in) a calculation that is less than zero, such calculation shall be deemed zero for purposes of this Agreement.
SECTION 2.13.          Alternate Rate of Interest; Illegality.
(a)          If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a LIBOR Borrowing:
41

(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 for such Interest Period; or
(ii)          the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that the Adjusted LIBO Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of making or maintaining the Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice (which may be telephonic) thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders as promptly as practicable and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (A) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a LIBOR Borrowing shall be ineffective, (B) any LIBOR Borrowing shall be converted to, or continued as, on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, an ABR Borrowing, and (C) the utilization of the Adjusted LIBO Rate component in determining the Alternate Base Rate shall be suspended.
(b)          If any Lender determines that any law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its applicable lending office to perform any of its obligations hereunder or to make, maintain or fund or charge interest with respect to any Loan or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Adjusted LIBO Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, US Dollars in the London interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Borrower through the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to issue, make, maintain, fund or charge interest with respect to any such Loan or continue LIBOR Loans or to convert ABR Loans to LIBOR Loans shall be suspended, and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining ABR Loans the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist.  Upon receipt of such notice, (A) the Borrower shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable, convert all LIBOR Loans of such Lender to ABR Loans (the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans and (B) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Alternate Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Adjusted LIBO Rate.  Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.

SECTION 2.14.          Increased Costs.
(a)          If any Change in Law shall:
42

(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 by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate);
(ii)          impose on any Lender or any applicable interbank market any other condition (other than with respect to Taxes) affecting this Agreement or LIBOR Loans made by any Lender; or
(iii)         subject any Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making, continuing, converting into or maintaining any Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then, upon request of such Lender, the Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(b)          If any Lender reasonably determines that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has had or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(c)          Each Lender shall determine the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section using the methods customarily used by it for such purpose (and if such Lender uses more than one such method, the method used hereunder shall be that which most accurately determines such amount or amounts).  A certificate of a Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, and an explanation in reasonable detail of the method by which such amount shall have been determined, shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within fifteen (15) Business Days after receipt thereof.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lender shall be entitled to seek compensation for additional amounts or costs pursuant to this Section unless it is the general policy of such Lender at such time to seek compensation under similar circumstances from other similarly situated borrowers with credit agreements containing yield protection provisions that provide for such compensation.
(d)          Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided, that, the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and
43

delivers a certificate with respect thereto as provided in paragraph (c) above; 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.
SECTION 2.15.         Break Funding Payments.  In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any LIBOR Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default or an optional prepayment of Loans), (b) the conversion of any LIBOR Loan to a Loan of a different Type or Interest Period other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any LIBOR Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice is revoked under Section 2.10(d)) or (d) the assignment or deemed assignment of any LIBOR Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.18, the Borrower shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense 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) 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 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), over (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount 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 US Dollars of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the London interbank market.  A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section, and setting forth in reasonable detail the calculations used by such Lender to determine such amount or amounts, shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within thirty (30) days after receipt thereof.
SECTION 2.16.          Taxes.

(a)          Any and all payments by or on account of any Loan Party in respect of any Obligation hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law.  If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction of any Tax from any such payment, then the withholding agent shall make such deduction and timely pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law. If any applicable withholding agent shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes from such payments, then the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions for Indemnified Taxes (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative Agent or the applicable Lender, as the case may be, receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions for Indemnified Taxes been made.
(b)          In addition, the Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(c)          The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender, within fifteen (15) Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes paid by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, 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 (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom
44

or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability setting forth in reasonable detail the circumstances giving rise thereto and the calculations used by such Lender to determine the amount thereof delivered to the Borrower by a Lender, or by the Administrative Agent, on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)          As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority, the Borrower 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.
(e)          Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent for (i) any Taxes (but, in the case of any Indemnified Taxes, only to the extent that the Loan Parties have not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified 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 10.04(g) 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 penalties, interest and 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 fifteen (15) Business 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.
 (f)          (i)          Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 2.16(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D)) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable 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.

(ii)          Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
(A)          any Lender that is a US Person shall deliver to the Borrower 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 Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. Federal backup withholding tax;
45

(B)          any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower 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 Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
(1)          in the case of a Foreign 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 W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. 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 W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. 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 Foreign 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 D-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the 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 W-8BEN-E; or

(4)          to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a US Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit D-2 or Exhibit D-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided, that, if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a US Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit D-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
(C)          any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower 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 Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower 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 U.S. Federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
46

(D)          if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. 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 Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower 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 Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Closing Date.
Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(g)          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, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.
 (h)          If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund).  Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party 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 with respect to such Tax had never been paid.  This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

SECTION 2.17.          Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs.
(a)          The Borrower and each Loan Party shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder or under any other Loan Document (whether of principal, interest or fees, or of amounts payable under Section 2.14, 2.15 or 2.16, or otherwise) at or prior to the time expressly required hereunder or under such other Loan Document for such payment (or, if no such time is expressly
47

required, at or prior to 12:00 noon, New York City time), on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without any defense, set–off, recoupment, deduction 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 to the applicable account specified by it for the account of the Lenders or, in any such case, to such other account as the Administrative Agent shall from time to time specify in a notice delivered to the Borrower; provided, that, payments pursuant to Sections 2.14, 2.15, 2.16 and 10.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto and payments pursuant to other Loan Documents shall be made to the Persons specified therein (it being agreed that the Borrower and each Loan Party will be deemed to have satisfied its obligations with respect to payments referred to in this proviso if it shall make such payments to the persons entitled thereto in accordance with instructions provided by the Administrative Agent; the Administrative Agent agrees to provide such instructions upon request, and neither the Borrower nor any other Loan Party will be deemed to have failed to make such a payment if it shall transfer such payment to an improper account or address as a result of the failure of the Administrative Agent to provide proper instructions).  The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any Lender or other Person promptly, in accordance with customary banking practices, following receipt thereof at the appropriate lending office or other address specified by such Lender or other Person.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if any payment hereunder 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, including of principal or interest in respect of any Loan, shall, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, be made in US Dollars; 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 any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on its 3-Year Term Loan or its 5-Year Term Loan or other Obligations resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of its 3-Year Term Loan or its 5-Year Term Loan and accrued interest thereon or other such Obligations greater than its pro rata share thereof as provided herein, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the 3-Year Term Loans or 5-Year Term Loans, as applicable, of the other 3-Year Term Loan Lenders or 5-Year Term Loan Lenders, as applicable, to the extent necessary so that the amount of all such payments shall be shared by the 3-Year Term Loan Lenders or the 5-Year Term Loan Lenders, as applicable, ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective 3-Year Term Loans or the 5-Year Term Loans, as applicable, and other amounts owing to them; provided, that, (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of 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 the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (for the avoidance of doubt, as in effect 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 Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to the Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply).  The Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under
48

applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Borrower rights of set–off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.  Any purchaser of a participation under this paragraph shall have the benefit of Sections 2.14, 2.15 and 2.16 with respect to the participation purchased, but shall not be deemed by virtue of such purchase to have extended any Commitment that it had not extended prior to such purchase.
(c)          Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders the amount due.  In such event, if the Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender 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 the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
(d)        If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it hereunder to or for the account of the Administrative Agent, then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations in respect of such payment until all such unsatisfied obligations have been discharged or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender pursuant to this Agreement (including pursuant to Sections 2.04(b), 2.17(c) and 10.03(c)), in each case in such order as shall be determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.

SECTION 2.18.          Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.
(a)          If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.14, or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.16, then such Lender shall consult with the Borrower regarding any actions that could be taken to reduce amounts payable under such Sections and the costs of taking such actions and shall, at the request of the Borrower following such consultations, use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.14 or Section 2.16, 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 Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable, direct, out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(b)          If (i) any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.14, or (ii) the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.16, or (iii) any Lender is a Non-Consenting Lender, then the Borrower 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
49

to the restrictions contained in Section 10.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under the Loan Documents to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided, that, (A) the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, (B) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal, funded participations and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts), (C) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.14 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.16, such assignment will result (or is reasonably expected to result) in a reduction in such compensation or payments, and (D) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from the status of such Lender as a Non-Consenting Lender, such assignment, together with any assignments by other Non-Consenting Lenders, will enable the Borrower to obtain sufficient consents to cause the applicable amendment, modification or waiver to become effective.  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 Borrower 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 Assumption executed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the assignee and that the Lender required to make such assignment and delegation need not be a party thereto.
SECTION 2.19.         Successor LIBOR. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Borrower or Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the case of the Required Lenders, a copy to the Borrower) that the Borrower or Required Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that: (a) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the London interbank offered rate for any requested Interest Period, including because the Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or (b) the administrator of the Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the London interbank offered rate or the Screen Rate shall no longer be made available, or used for determining the interest rate of loans (such specific date, the “Scheduled Unavailability Date”); or (c) syndicated loans currently being executed, or that include language similar to that contained in this Section 2.19, are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace the London interbank offered rate; then, reasonably promptly after such determination by the Administrative Agent or receipt by the Administrative Agent of such notice, as applicable, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may amend this Agreement to replace the London interbank offered rate with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein), giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar syndicated credit facilities for such alternative benchmarks (any such proposed rate, a “LIBOR Successor Rate”), together with any proposed LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes and any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the fifth Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrower unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Required Lenders do not accept such amendment.

If no LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined and the circumstances under clause (a) above exist or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred (as applicable), the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain LIBOR Loans shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Loans or Interest Periods),
50

and (y) the Adjusted LIBO Rate component shall no longer be utilized in determining the Alternate Base Rate.  Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of LIBOR Loans (to the extent of the affected LIBOR Loans or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for an ABR Borrowing (subject to the foregoing clause (y)) in the amount specified therein.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of LIBOR Successor Rate shall provide that in no event shall such LIBOR Successor Rate be less than 0.75% for purposes of this Agreement.

SECTION 3.11.          ERISA.  No ERISA Event has occurred or is reasonably expected to occur that, when taken together with all other such ERISA Events for which liability is reasonably expected to occur, could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.  The present value of all accumulated benefit obligations under each Plan (based on the assumptions used for purposes of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 715) did not, as of the date of the most recent financial statements reflecting such amounts, exceed by more than $75,000,000 the fair market value of the assets of such Plan, and the present value of all accumulated benefit obligations of all Plans in the aggregate (based on the assumptions used for purposes of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 715) did not, as of the date of the most recent financial statements reflecting such amounts, exceed by more than $75,000,000 the fair market value of the assets of all such Plans.  As of the Closing Date, the Borrower is not, and the Borrower will not be, using its own “plan assets” (within the meaning of 29 CFR § 2510.3-101, as modified by Section 3(42) of ERISA) of one or more of its Benefit Plans in connection with the Loans or the Commitments.

SECTION 3.16.           Collateral Matters.  If any Collateral and Guarantee Trigger Event occurs:
 (a)          The Security and Pledge Agreement, upon execution and delivery thereof by the parties thereto, will be effective to create in favor of the Collateral Agent a valid and enforceable security interest in the Collateral and (i) when the Collateral constituting certificated securities (as defined in the UCC), solely to the extent required by the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement, is delivered to the Collateral Agent, together with instruments of transfer duly endorsed in blank, the security interest created under the Security and Pledge Agreement will constitute a valid and
54

perfected security interest in such Collateral (prior to all Liens on such Collateral, except for Liens (i) permitted by this Agreement which may have priority over the Liens of the Collateral Agent on such Collateral by operation of law (including the priority rules under the UCC) or (ii) which are otherwise permitted pursuant to Section 6.01 of this Agreement) and (ii) when financing statements in appropriate form are filed in the applicable filing offices, the security interest created under the Security and Pledge Agreement will constitute a valid and perfected security interest in the remaining Collateral (prior to all Liens on such Collateral, except for Liens (i) permitted by this Agreement which may have priority over the Liens of the Collateral Agent on such Collateral by operation of law (including the priority rules under the UCC) or (ii) which are otherwise permitted pursuant to Section 6.01 of this Agreement) to the extent perfection can be obtained by filing UCC financing statements.

(b)          Upon the recordation of the IP Security Agreements with the United States Patent and Trademark Office or the United States Copyright Office, as applicable, and the filing of the financing statements referred to in clause (a) of this Section, the security interest created under the Security and Pledge Agreement will constitute a valid and perfected security interest in the Intellectual Property (as defined in the Security and Pledge Agreement) (prior to all Liens on such Collateral, except for Liens (i) permitted by this Agreement which may have priority over the Liens of the Collateral Agent on such Collateral by operation of law (including the priority rules under the UCC) or (ii) which are otherwise permitted pursuant to Section 6.01 of this Agreement) in which a security interest may be perfected by filing in the United States (it being understood that subsequent recordings in the United States Patent and Trademark Office or the United States Copyright Office may be necessary to perfect a security interest in such Intellectual Property acquired by the Loan Parties after the Initial Collateral and Guarantee Requirement Satisfaction Date).
SECTION 3.17.          Subsidiaries; Loan PartiesIf any Collateral and Guarantee Trigger Event occurs, on and after the Initial Collateral and Guarantee Requirement Satisfaction Date:

(a)          Schedule 3.17(a) sets forth, as of the Initial Collateral and Guarantee Requirement Satisfaction Date, the name and jurisdiction of organization of, and the percentage of each class of Equity Interests owned by the Borrower or any other Subsidiary in, each Subsidiary and identifies each Designated Subsidiary, each Material Subsidiary and each Excluded Subsidiary.

In order to expedite the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, Bank of America is hereby appointed to act as Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders.  Each of the Lenders and each assignee of any Lender hereby irrevocably authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such actions on behalf of such Lender or assignee 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 Administrative Agent is hereby expressly authorized by the Lenders, without hereby limiting any implied authority, and by the Borrower with respect to clause (c) below, (a) to receive on behalf of the Lenders all payments of principal of and interest on the Loans and all other amounts due to the Lenders hereunder, and promptly to distribute to each Lender its proper share of each payment so received; (b) to give notice on behalf of each of the Lenders to the Borrower of any Default or Event of Default specified in this Agreement of which the Administrative Agent has actual knowledge acquired in connection with its agency hereunder; and (c) to distribute to each Lender copies of all notices, financial statements and other materials delivered by any Loan Party pursuant to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents as received by the Administrative Agent.

In order to expedite the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, effective automatically upon the occurrence of any Collateral and Guarantee Trigger Event, Bank of America is hereby appointed to act as Collateral Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents for purposes of acquiring, holding and enforcing any and all Liens on Collateral granted by any of the Loan Parties to secure any of the Obligations, any “Obligations” under and as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement and any applicable Senior Notes Indenture Secured Obligations, together with such powers and discretion as are reasonably incidental thereto.  In connection therewith, the Collateral Agent and any co-agents, sub-agents and attorneys-in-fact appointed by the Collateral Agent pursuant to this Article for purposes of holding or enforcing any Lien on the Collateral (or any portion thereof) granted under the Collateral Documents, or for exercising any rights and remedies thereunder at the direction of the Collateral Agent, shall be entitled to the benefits of all provisions of this Article and Article X (as though such co-agents, sub-agents and attorneys-in-fact were the Collateral Agent under the Loan Documents) as if set forth in full herein with respect thereto and all references to the Administrative Agent in this Article shall, where applicable, be read as including a reference to the Collateral Agent.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Lenders expressly authorize the Collateral Agent to execute any and all documents (including releases) with respect to the Collateral and the rights of the Lenders with respect thereto, as contemplated by and in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Collateral Documents and acknowledge and agree that any such action by the Collateral Agent shall bind the Lenders.  Each of the Lenders and each assignee of any Lender hereby irrevocably authorizes the Collateral Agent to take such actions on behalf of such Lender or assignee and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Collateral Agent by the terms of the Loan Documents, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.
With respect to the Loans made by it hereunder, the Person serving as the Administrative Agent and/or the Collateral Agent in its individual capacity and not as Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent shall have the same rights and powers as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent and/or the Collateral Agent, and such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or other Affiliates thereof as if it were not the Administrative Agent and/or the Collateral Agent.
73

The Agents shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Loan Documents.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing: (a) the Agents shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing; (b) the Agents shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Loan Documents that the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, is required to exercise upon receipt of notice in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02); provided, that, no Agent shall be required to take any action that, in its reasonable opinion or the reasonable opinion of its counsel, may expose such Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or applicable law, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any debtor relief law; and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, the Agents shall not have any duty to disclose, or be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by the institution serving as Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent or any of their respective Affiliates in any capacity.  No Agent shall 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 under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct.  No Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to it by the Borrower (in which case the applicable Agent shall give written notice to each Lender), and no Agent shall 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 hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth herein or therein, (iv) the 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 and/or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be.

Each Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or sent by the proper Person.  Each Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon.  Each Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the 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.
Each Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by such Agent.  Each Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties.  The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Agents 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 an Agent.  Neither the Administrative Agent nor the Collateral Agent shall 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 non-appealable judgment that such Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents.
Subject to the conditions set forth herein, any Agent may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders and the Borrower.  Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, with the consent of the Borrower (not to be unreasonably withheld and except during the continuance of an Event of Default
74

hereunder, when no consent shall be required), to appoint a successor.  If no successor to a retiring Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation (for purposes of this paragraph, the “Resignation Effective Date”), then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent which shall be a bank with an office in New York, New York, or an Affiliate of any such bank; provided, that, whether or not a successor shall have been appointed, the Agent’s resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date.  Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent hereunder by a successor and, during the Collateral and Guarantee Period with respect to the Collateral Agent, upon the execution and filing or recording of such financing statements, or amendments thereto, and such other instruments or notices, as may be necessary or desirable  in order to continue the perfection of the Liens granted or purported to be granted by the Collateral Documents, the Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as applicable, shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, discretion, privileges, and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent and such retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder.  After any Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article and Section 10.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring 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 an Agent.

Each Lender agrees (a) to reimburse each Agent, on demand, in the amount of its pro rata share (based on the amount of its Loans and available Commitments hereunder) of any expenses incurred for the benefit of the Lenders by such Agent, including counsel fees and compensation of agents and employees paid for services rendered on behalf of the Lenders, that shall not have been reimbursed by the Borrower and (b) to indemnify and hold harmless the Agents and their respective Related Parties, on demand, in the amount of such pro rata share, from and against any and all liabilities, Taxes, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever that may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against it in its capacity as an Agent or any of them in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or action taken or omitted by it or any of them under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, to the extent the same shall not have been reimbursed by the Borrower; provided, that, no Lender shall be liable to any Agent or any such other indemnified Person for any portion of such liabilities, Taxes, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements that are determined to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Agent, any of its Related Parties or any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents.
Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent, the Arrangers or any other Lender 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 also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent, the Arrangers or any other Lender 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 related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.  Each Lender represents and warrants that (i) the Loan Documents set forth the terms of a commercial lending facility and (ii) it is engaged in making, acquiring or holding commercial loans in the ordinary course and is entering into this Agreement as a Lender for the purpose of making, acquiring or holding commercial loans and providing other facilities set forth herein as may be applicable to such Lender, and not for the purpose of purchasing, acquiring or holding any other type of financial instrument, and each Lender agrees not to assert a claim in contravention of the foregoing.  Each Lender represents and warrants that it is sophisticated with respect to decisions to make, acquire and/or hold commercial loans and to provide other facilities set forth herein, as may be applicable to such Lender, and either it, or the Person exercising discretion in making its

In case of the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceeding relative to any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan 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 the Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered, 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 by the Loan Parties in respect of the Loans and all other Obligations 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 and the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders and the Administrative Agent) against the Loan Parties 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 judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent hereunder.  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 any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Lender or to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender in any such proceeding.

During the Collateral and Guarantee Period, each of the Lenders (including in its capacities as a potential Cash Management Bank and a potential Hedge Bank) irrevocably authorizes and directs the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent, at their respective options and in their respective discretion:
(a)          to release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under any Loan Document (i) upon the expiration or termination of the Commitments and the repayment in full of the principal of and interest on each Loan and all fees and other amounts payable hereunder, (ii) that is sold or otherwise disposed of or to be sold or otherwise disposed of as part of or in connection with any sale or other disposition not prohibited hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (iii) to the extent such property becomes Excluded Property, or (iv) if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Lenders in accordance with Section 10.02;
(b)          to subordinate any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under any Loan Document to the holder of any Lien on such property that is permitted by Section 6.01(d);
(c)          to enter into the Pari Passu Intercreditor Agreement;
76

(e)          to release any Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement and to release all Liens on its property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under any Loan Document if such Person ceases to be a Subsidiary (or otherwise becomes an Excluded Subsidiary) as a result of a transaction not prohibited under the Loan Documents; provided, that, no such release shall occur if such Guarantor continues to be a guarantor or a borrower in respect of any obligations under any Senior Notes Indenture or any “Obligations” under and as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement.

Upon request of the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent at any time, the Required Lenders will confirm in writing the Administrative Agent’s or the Collateral Agent’s, as the case may be, authority to release or subordinate its interest in particular types or items of property, or to release any Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph.  In each case as specified in the immediately preceding paragraph, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, will, at the Borrower’s expense, execute and deliver to the applicable Loan Party such documents as such Loan Party may reasonably request to evidence the release of such item of Collateral from the assignment and security interest granted under the Collateral Documents or to subordinate its interest in such item, or to release such Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement, in each case in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents and the immediately preceding paragraph.
Neither the Administrative Agent nor the Collateral Agent shall be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Collateral Agent’s Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall any Agent be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.
Each Lender (a) represents and warrants, as of the date such Person became a Lender party hereto, and (b) 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 not, for the avoidance of doubt, to or for the benefit of the Borrower, 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 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 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 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 Commitments and this Agreement, (C) the entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, 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
77

performance of the Loans,  the Commitments and this Agreement, or (iv) such other representation, warranty and covenant as may be agreed in writing between the Administrative Agent, in its sole discretion, and such Lender. In addition, unless either (1) clause (i) in the immediately preceding sentence is true with respect to a Lender or such Lender has provided another representation, warranty and covenant in accordance with clause (iv) in the immediately preceding sentence, 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 not, for the avoidance of doubt, to or for the benefit of the Borrower, that the Administrative Agent is not a fiduciary 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 Commitments and this Agreement (including in connection with the reservation or exercise of any rights by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, any Loan Document or any documents related hereto or thereto).

Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, no Cash Management Bank or Hedge Bank that obtains the benefit of the provisions of the Guarantee Agreement or any Collateral by virtue of the provisions of any Loan Document shall have any right to notice of any action or to consent to, direct or object to any action under any Loan Document or otherwise in respect of the Collateral (including the release or impairment of any Collateral) (or to notice of or to consent to any amendment, waiver or modification of the provisions any Loan Document) other than in its capacity as a Lender and, in such case, only to the extent expressly provided in the Loan Documents.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article VIII to the contrary, no Agent shall be required to verify the payment of, or that other satisfactory arrangements have been made with respect to, Obligations arising under Secured Cash Management Agreements and Secured Hedge Agreements, unless such Agent has received a Secured Party Designation Notice with respect to such Obligations, together with such supporting documentation as such Agent may request, from the applicable Cash Management Bank or the applicable Hedge Bank, as the case may be; provided, that, notwithstanding the foregoing, no Agent shall be required to verify the payment of, or that other satisfactory arrangements have been made with respect to, Obligations arising under Secured Cash Management Agreements and Secured Hedge Agreements in the case of the repayment in full of the principal and interest on the Loans and all fees and other amounts payable hereunder.

(b)          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 Borrower and the Required Lenders and acknowledged by the Administrative Agent or by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders or, in the case of any other Loan Document, pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the 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 or reduce the rate of interest thereon (other than as a result of any waiver of any increase in the interest rate applicable to any Loan pursuant to Section 2.12(d)), or reduce any fees payable hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender adversely affected thereby, (iii) postpone the date of any scheduled payment of the principal amount of any Loan, or any interest thereon, or any fees payable hereunder, or reduce the amount of, waive or excuse any such payment, or postpone the scheduled date of expiration of any Commitment, in each case, without the written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (iv) change Section 2.17(b), Section 2.17(c) or the last paragraph of Article VII in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby, without the written consent of each Lender, (v) change any of the provisions of this Section or the percentage set forth in the definition of the term “Required Lenders” or any other provision of this Agreement specifying the number or percentage of Lenders 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, (vi) subordinate the Obligations of the Borrower to any other Indebtedness without the consent of each affected Lender, or (vii)(A) make any change so as to alter the manner of application of proceeds of any mandatory prepayment required by this Agreement and owing to the 3-Year Term Loan Lenders, without the consent of the Required 3-Year Term Loan Lenders, (B) change any of the provisions of clause (vii)(A) above or this clause (vii)(B) or the percentage set forth in the definition of the term “Required 3-Year Term Loan Lenders” without the written consent of each 3-Year Term Loan Lender, (C) make any change so as to alter the manner of application of proceeds of any mandatory prepayment required by this Agreement and owing to the 5-Year Term Loan Lenders, without the consent of the Required 5-Year Term Loan Lenders, or (D) change any of the provisions of clause (vii)(C) above or this clause (vii)(D) or the percentage set forth in the definition of the term “Required 5-Year Term Loan Lenders” without the written consent of each 5-Year Term Loan Lender; provided, further, that, no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder or under any other Loan Document without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent.  Notwithstanding anything else in this Section to the contrary, (x) 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 Borrower and the Required Lenders, (y) no consent with respect to any waiver, amendment or modification of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be required of any Lender that receives payment in full of the principal of

80

and interest accrued on each Loan made by, and all other amounts owing to, such Lender or accrued for the account of such Lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents at the time such amendment, waiver or other modification becomes effective and whose Commitments terminate by the terms and upon the effectiveness of such waiver, amendment or other modification, and (z) any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document may be amended by an agreement in writing entered into by the Borrower 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 three Business Days prior written notice thereof and the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within three 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.

81

brought by an Indemnitee against another Indemnitee (other than any claim, action, suit, inquiry, litigation, investigation or proceeding against an Agent or an Arranger in its capacity as such).
 (c)          To the extent that the Borrower fails to pay any amount required to be paid by it under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, or any Loan Party fails to pay any amount required to be paid by such Loan Party under Section 5.03(a) or Section 5.03(b) of the Guarantee Agreement, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent 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 loss, liability, cost or expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against an Agent or against any Related Party acting for such Agent (or any sub-agent) in connection with such capacity.  For purposes hereof, a Lender’s “pro rata share” shall be determined based upon its share of the sum of the aggregate outstanding Loans and unused Commitments at the time (or most recently) in effect.

(d)          To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Borrower shall not assert, and the Borrower hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with or as a result of this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the Transactions, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof.  No Indemnitee referred to in paragraph (b) above shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or the Transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, other than for damages resulting from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee as determined by a final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.

(e)          The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amount of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”).  The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent 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 inspection by the Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

(f)           Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption 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 (c) of this Section (unless otherwise waived by the Administrative Agent) and any consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) or (c) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall record the information contained in such Assignment and Assumption 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.
(g)          Any Lender may, without the consent of, or notice to, the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (other than (x) any individual (or a holding company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit, of any individual), or (y) the Borrower or any Affiliate of the Borrower) (each a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans owing to it); 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 Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under the Loan Documents.  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 clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) of the first proviso to Section 10.02(b) that affects such Participant.  Subject to paragraph (h) of this Section, the Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.14, 2.15, and 2.16 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section.  To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.08 as though it were a Lender; provided, that, such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.17(b) 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 Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document (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 or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person other than a Governmental Authority except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan 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
84

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.

(h)          A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.14 or Section 2.16 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Borrower’s prior written consent.  A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.16 unless such Participant agrees, for the benefit of the Borrower, to comply with Section 2.16(f) as though it were a Lender.
(i)          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 any foreign 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 10.05.       Survival.  All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Borrower or any other Loan Party herein, in the other 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 or thereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents and the making of any Loans, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that any Agent, any Arranger, any Syndication Agent 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 and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated.  The provisions of Sections 2.14, 2.15, 2.16, 10.03, clause (b) of Section 10.18 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the Transactions or the other transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any provision hereof or thereof.
SECTION 10.06.       Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness.  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 and the other Loan Documents, any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent, the Lenders or the Arrangers, and any provisions in any engagement or commitment letter executed and delivered by the Borrower in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby that by the express terms of such engagement or 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.  Except as provided in Section 4.01, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof which, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto, 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 fax or other electronic image scan transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.
85

SECTION 10.07.       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.
SECTION 10.08.         Right of Setoff.  If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender 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 and in whatever currency denominated) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against any of and all the obligations of the Borrower now or hereafter existing under this Agreement held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement and although such obligations may be unmatured.  Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Administrative Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Lender; provided, that, the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.  The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender may have.
SECTION 10.09.         Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.
(a)          This Agreement and each other Loan Document (except, as to any other Loan Document, as expressly set forth therein) shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of New York.
(b)          Each party hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to any Loan Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal 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 or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement against any Loan Party or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.
(c)          Each party 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 or the Transactions 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 party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 10.01.  Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party hereto or thereto to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.
86

SECTION 10.10.        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 10.11.         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 10.12.         Confidentiality; Non-Public Information.
(a)          Each Agent and each Lender agree to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined below), except that Information may be disclosed (i) to its and its Affiliates’ directors, officers, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors, to Related Funds’ directors and officers and to any direct or indirect contractual counterparty in swap agreements (it being understood that each Person to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential), (ii) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority (including any self-regulatory authority) having jurisdiction over such Lender, (iii) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (iv) to any other party to this Agreement, (v) to the extent required or advisable in the judgment of counsel in connection with any suit, action or proceeding relating to the enforcement of rights of the Agents or the Lenders against the Borrower or any other Loan Party under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (vi) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (A) any assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (B) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction or any credit insurance provider relating to the Borrower and its obligations, (vii) with the consent of the Borrower or (viii) to the extent such Information (A) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section of which such Agent or such Lender is aware or (B) becomes available to any Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrower other than as a result of a breach of this Section of which such Agent or such Lender is aware.  For the purposes of this Section, “Information” means all information received from the Borrower relating to the Borrower or its business, other than any such information that is available to any Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by the Borrower other than as a result of a breach of this Section of which such Agent or such Lender is aware.  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.

(b)          Each Lender acknowledges that Information furnished to it pursuant to this Agreement may include material non-public information concerning the Borrower and its Related Parties or the Borrower’s securities, and confirms that it has developed compliance procedures
87

regarding the use of material non-public information and that it will handle such material non-public information in accordance with those procedures and applicable law, including Federal and state securities laws.
(c)          All information, including requests for waivers and amendments, furnished by the Borrower, the Subsidiaries or the Administrative Agent pursuant to, or in the course of administering, this Agreement will be syndicate-level information, which may contain material non-public information about the Borrower, the Subsidiaries and their Related Parties or the Borrower’s securities.  Accordingly, each Lender represents to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent that it has identified in its Administrative Questionnaire a credit contact who may receive information that may contain material non-public information in accordance with its compliance procedures and applicable law, including Federal and state securities laws.
SECTION 10.13.         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 the Borrower in respect of any sum due to any 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 Borrower agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Applicable Creditor against such loss.  The obligations of the Borrower contained in this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of all other amounts owing hereunder.
SECTION 10.14.        Interest Rate Limitation.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the interest rate applicable to any Loan, together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on such Loan 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 holding such Loan in accordance with applicable law, the rate of interest payable in respect of such Loan 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 Loan 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 Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender.

SECTION 10.15.         Patriot Act.  Each Lender and the Administrative Agent hereby notifies the Borrower that pursuant to the Patriot Act, it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each Loan Party, which information includes the name and address of the Borrower and other information that will allow such Lender and the Administrative Agent to identify the Borrower in
88

accordance with the Patriot Act.  The Borrower agrees to provide to each Lender and the Administrative Agent, upon request, with all documentation and other information reasonably requested by such Lender or the Administrative Agent for purposes of compliance with applicable “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including the Patriot Act and the Beneficial Ownership Regulation.
SECTION 10.16.         No Fiduciary Relationship.  The Borrower, on behalf of itself and the Subsidiaries, agrees that in connection with all aspects of the transactions contemplated hereby and any communications in connection therewith, the Borrower, the Subsidiaries and their Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Agents, 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 Agents, the Lenders or their Affiliates, and no such duty will be deemed to have arisen in connection with any such transactions or communications.  The Borrower, on behalf of itself, the Subsidiaries and its and their respective Affiliates, waives and releases, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any claims that the Borrower, the Subsidiaries or such Affiliates may have against any Agent, any Person identified on the facing page or signature pages of this Agreement or elsewhere herein as a “syndication agent”, any Lender or any Affiliate of any of the foregoing in respect of any breach or alleged breach of agency or fiduciary duty.
SECTION 10.17.        Electronic Execution.  This Agreement, any other Loan Document, and any other document, amendment, approval, consent, information, notice, certificate, request, statement, disclosure or authorization related to this Agreement or any other Loan Document (each a “Communication”), including Communications required to be in writing, may be in the form of an Electronic Record and may be executed using an Electronic Signature.  The Borrower agrees that any Electronic Signature on or associated with any Communication shall be valid and binding on the Borrower to the same extent as a manual, original signature, and that any Communication entered into by Electronic Signature, will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Borrower enforceable against the Borrower in accordance with the terms thereof to the same extent as if a manually executed original signature was delivered.  Any Communication may be executed in as many counterparts as necessary or convenient, including both paper and electronic counterparts, but all such counterparts are one and the same Communication.  For the avoidance of doubt, the authorization under this Section may include use or acceptance by the Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders of a manually signed paper Communication which has been converted into electronic form (such as scanned into .pdf format), or an electronically signed Communication converted into another format, for transmission, delivery and/or retention.  The Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders may, at its option, create one or more copies of any Communication in the form of an imaged Electronic Record (“Electronic Copy”), which shall be deemed created in the ordinary course of such Person’s business, and destroy the original paper document.  All Communications in the form of an Electronic Record, including an Electronic Copy, shall be considered an original for all purposes, and shall have the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a paper record to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.  Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Administrative Agent is under no obligation to accept an Electronic Signature in any form or in any format unless expressly agreed to by the Administrative Agent pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided, that, without limiting the foregoing, (a) to the extent the Administrative Agent has agreed to accept such Electronic Signature, the Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders shall be entitled to rely on any such Electronic Signature purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrower without further verification, and (b) upon the request of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, any Electronic Signature shall be promptly followed by such manually executed counterpart.  For purposes hereof, “Electronic Record” and “Electronic Signature” shall have the meanings assigned to them, respectively, by 15 USC §7006, as it may be amended from time to time.
SECTION 10.18.         Payments Set Aside.  To the extent that any payment by or on behalf of the Borrower is made to the Administrative Agent or any Lender, or the Administrative Agent or any Lender exercises any right of setoff, and such payment or the proceeds of such setoff or any part thereof is
89

subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Administrative Agent or such Lender in its discretion) to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party, in connection with any proceeding under any debtor relief law or otherwise, then (a) to the extent of such recovery, the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such setoff had not occurred, and (b) each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent upon demand its applicable share (without duplication) of any amount so recovered from or repaid by the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such payment is made at a rate per annum equal to the greater (i) the Federal Funds Effective Rate from time to time in effect and (ii) an overnight rate from time to time in effect and determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
SECTION 10.19.       Acknowledgement and Consent to Bail-In of Affected Financial Institutions.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document or in any other agreement, arrangement or understanding among any such parties, each party hereto acknowledges that any liability of any Lender that is an Affected 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 the applicable Resolution Authority and agrees and consents to, and acknowledges and agrees to be bound by:
(a)          the application of any Write-Down and Conversion Powers by the applicable Resolution Authority to any such liabilities arising hereunder which may be payable to it by any Lender that is an Affected 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 cancellation of any such liability;
(ii)         a conversion of all, or a portion of, such liability into shares or other instruments of ownership in such Affected Financial Institution, its parent undertaking, 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 the applicable Resolution Authority.
SECTION 10.20.          Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs.  To the extent that the Loan Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for any Hedging Agreement or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support, “QFC Credit Support”, and each such QFC, a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Loan Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States), in the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such
90

QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Loan Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Loan Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States.

ARTICLE II

GUARANTEE
SECTION 2.01.          Guarantee.  Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, the payment when and as due of the Obligations; provided, that, (a) the Obligations of a Guarantor shall exclude any Excluded Swap Obligations with respect to such Guarantor, and (b) the liability of each Guarantor individually with respect to such Guarantor’s obligations under this Section 2.01 shall be limited to an aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not render its obligations hereunder subject to avoidance under Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States or any comparable provisions of any applicable state law.  Each Guarantor 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.
Each Guarantor waives presentment to, demand of payment from and protest to the Borrower or any other Guarantor of any of the Obligations, and also waives notice of acceptance of its obligations and notice of protest for nonpayment.  The obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be affected by: (a) the failure of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy against the Borrower or any other Guarantor under the provisions of the Credit Agreement or 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 the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document; (d) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of any of the Obligations; or (e) 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 such Guarantor 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 such Guarantor to subrogation.
Each Guarantor 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 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 the Borrower or any other Person.
The obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, and shall not be subject to 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.
Each Guarantor 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 or any Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of the Borrower, any other Guarantor or otherwise.
In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right which the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have at law or in equity against any Guarantor by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Borrower or any other Guarantor to pay any Obligation when and as the same shall become due,
2

whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, each Guarantor hereby promises to and will, upon receipt of written demand by the Administrative Agent or any Lender, forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in cash an amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of such Obligations then due, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon.
Upon payment by the Guarantors of any sums as provided above, all rights of the Guarantors against the Borrower or any other Guarantor 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.

The obligations and undertakings of each Qualified ECP Guarantor under this Section 2.02 shall remain in full force and effect until the Obligations have been indefeasibly paid and performed in full.  Each Guarantor intends this Section 2.02 to constitute, and this Section 2.02 shall be deemed to constitute, a guarantee of the obligations of, and a “keepwell, support, or other agreement” for the benefit of, each Specified Loan Party for all purposes of the Commodity Exchange Act.

(b)          Each Grantor acknowledges and agrees that (i) to the extent any interest in any limited liability company or limited partnership controlled now or in the future by such Grantor (or by such Grantor and one or more other Grantors) and pledged hereunder is a “security” within the meaning of Article 8 of the UCC and is governed by Article 8 of the UCC, such interest shall be certificated (and such certificate shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in accordance with Section 2.02(a)), and (ii) each such interest shall at all times hereafter continue to be such a security and represented by such certificate.  Each Grantor further acknowledges and agrees that with respect to any interest in any limited liability company or limited partnership controlled now or in the future by such Grantor (or by such Grantor and one or more other Grantors) and pledged hereunder that is not a “security” within the meaning of Article 8 of the UCC, the terms of such interest shall at no time provide that such interest is a “security” within the meaning of Article 8 of the UCC, nor shall such interest be represented by a certificate, unless such Grantor provides prior written notification to the Collateral Agent that the terms of such interest so provide that such interest is a “security” within the meaning of Article 8 of the UCC and such interest is thereafter represented by a certificate (and, in such case, such certificate shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in accordance with Section 2.02(a)).
(c)          Upon delivery to the Collateral Agent, any Pledged Securities shall be accompanied by undated stock powers or such other proper instruments of assignment duly

SECTION 2.03          Representations and Warranties.  Each Grantor represents and warrants that:
(a)          As of the date of this Agreement, Schedule I sets forth a true and complete list, with respect to such Grantor, of (i) all the Pledged Equity Interests owned by such Grantor, the percentage of the issued and outstanding units of each class of the Equity Interests of the issuer thereof represented by the Pledged Equity Interests owned by such Grantor, and, in the case of any certificated Pledged Equity Interests, the certificate number (and number of units represented by each such certificate) for any certificate evidencing such Pledged Equity Interests, and (ii) all the Pledged Debt Securities owned by such Grantor.
(b)          The Pledged Equity Interests and Pledged Debt Securities issued by such Grantor have been duly and validly authorized and issued by such Grantor and (i) in the case of Pledged Equity Interests, are fully paid and nonassessable (to the extent applicable), and (ii) in the case of Pledged Debt Securities, are legal, valid and binding obligations of such Grantor, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principals of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.
(c)          Except for the security interests granted hereunder, such Grantor (i) is and, subject to any transfers made in compliance with the Loan Documents, will continue to be the direct owner, beneficially and of record, of the Pledged Equity Interests and Pledged Debt Securities owned by such Grantor, (ii) holds the Pledged Equity Interests and Pledged Debt Securities owned by such Grantor free and clear of all Liens, other than Liens created by this Agreement and other Liens permitted under the Loan Documents, (iii) will make no assignment, pledge, hypothecation or transfer of, or create or permit to exist any security interest in or other Lien on, the Pledged Collateral, other than (A) Liens created by this Agreement, (B) other Liens permitted under the Loan Documents, and (C) transfers made in compliance with the Loan Documents, and (iv) upon the reasonable written request of the Collateral Agent, or upon such Grantor obtaining knowledge thereof, will use commercially reasonable efforts to defend its title or interest in and to the Pledged Collateral against any and all Liens (other than the Liens created by this Agreement and other Liens permitted by the Loan Documents), however arising, of all Persons whomsoever.
(d)          Except for restrictions and limitations (i) imposed by (A) the Loan Documents, (B) securities laws, and (C) in the case of Equity Interests in Foreign Subsidiaries, applicable local laws, and (ii) existing as of the date of this Agreement (or in the case of any Subsidiary acquired after the date of this Agreement that is not a wholly-owned Subsidiary, as of the date the Equity Interests in such Subsidiary were acquired) in the articles or certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other organizational documents of any Subsidiary, (1) the Pledged Collateral is and will continue to be freely transferable and assignable, and (2) none of the Pledged Collateral is or will be subject to any option, right of first refusal, shareholders agreement, charter or by-law provisions or contractual restriction of any nature that might prohibit, impair, delay or otherwise affect the pledge of such Pledged Collateral hereunder, the sale or disposition thereof pursuant hereto or the exercise by the Collateral Agent of rights and remedies hereunder.
(e)          Such Grantor has the power and authority to pledge the Pledged Collateral pledged by it hereunder in the manner hereby done or contemplated.
13

(f)          No consent or approval of any Governmental Authority, any securities exchange or any other Person was, is or will be required for the validity of the pledge effected hereby (other than (i) such as have been obtained and are in full force and effect, (ii) registrations or filings necessary to perfect Liens created hereunder required by applicable law, and (iii) any consent or approval the failure to obtain or make, individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect).
(g)          This Agreement creates a legal and valid security interest in favor of the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, in the Pledged Collateral of such Grantor and when properly perfected by filing, shall constitute a valid and perfected, first priority (subject to Liens permitted by the Loan Documents) security interest in the Pledged Collateral of such Grantor, to the extent such security interest can be perfected by filing under the UCC.  Subject to applicable local laws in the case of Equity Interests in any Foreign Subsidiary, the taking of possession by the Collateral Agent of the Pledged Securities will perfect and establish the first priority of the Collateral Agent’s security interest in all Pledge Securities that are “securities” within the meaning of Article 8 of the UCC.
SECTION 2.04          Registration in Nominee Name; Denominations.  The Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, shall hold the Pledged Securities in the name of the applicable Grantor, endorsed or assigned in blank or in favor of the Collateral Agent or, if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Collateral Agent shall have the right to hold any Pledged Securities in its own name as pledgee or in the name of its nominee (as pledgee or as sub-agent).  If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Collateral Agent shall have the right to exchange the certificates representing Pledged Securities for certificates of smaller or larger denominations for any purpose consistent with this Agreement.
SECTION 2.05          Voting Rights; Dividends and Interest.
(a)          Unless and until an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and the Collateral Agent shall have provided notice to the Company that the Grantors rights, in whole or in part, under this Section 2.05 are being suspended:
(i)          each Grantor shall be entitled to exercise any and all voting and/or other consensual rights and powers inuring to an owner of Pledged Collateral or any part thereof in any manner not in violation of the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents;
(ii)          the Collateral Agent shall execute and deliver to each Grantor, or cause to be executed and delivered to such Grantor, all such proxies, powers of attorney and other instruments as such Grantor may reasonably request for the purpose of enabling such Grantor to exercise the voting and/or consensual rights and powers it is entitled to exercise pursuant to Section 2.05(a)(i); and
(iii)          each Grantor shall be entitled to receive and retain any and all dividends, interest, principal and other distributions paid on or distributed in respect of the Pledged Collateral, but only to the extent that such dividends, interest, principal and other distributions are permitted by, and are otherwise paid or distributed in accordance with, the terms and conditions of the Loan Documents and applicable law; provided, that, any non-cash dividends, interest, principal or other distributions that would constitute Pledged Equity Interests or Pledged Debt Securities held by a Grantor, whether resulting from a subdivision, combination or reclassification of the outstanding Equity Interests of the
14

issuer of any Pledged Securities or received in exchange for Pledged Securities or any part thereof, or in redemption thereof, or as a result of any merger, consolidation, acquisition or other exchange of assets to which such issuer may be a party or otherwise, shall be and become part of the Pledged Collateral and, if received by any Grantor and required to be delivered to the Collateral Agent hereunder, shall not be commingled by such Grantor with any of its other funds or property (but shall be held separate and apart therefrom), shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Collateral Agent and shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent promptly and in the form in which they shall have been received (with any endorsements, stock or note powers and other instruments of transfer reasonably requested by the Collateral Agent).
(b)          Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default and after the Collateral Agent shall have notified the Company of the suspension of the Grantors’ rights under Section 2.05(a)(iii), all rights of any Grantor to dividends, interest, principal or other distributions that such Grantor is authorized to receive pursuant to Section 2.05(a)(iii) shall cease, and all such rights shall thereupon become vested in the Collateral Agent, which shall have the sole and exclusive right and authority to receive and retain such dividends, interest, principal or other distributions.  All dividends, interest, principal and other distributions received by any Grantor contrary to the provisions of this Section 2.05(b) shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Collateral Agent, shall be segregated from other property or funds of such Grantor and shall be forthwith delivered to the Collateral Agent promptly and in the form in which they shall have been received (with any necessary endorsements, stock powers or other instruments of transfer reasonably requested by the Collateral Agent).  Any and all money and other property paid over to or received by the Collateral Agent pursuant to the provisions of this Section 2.05(b) shall be retained by the Collateral Agent in an account to be established by the Collateral Agent upon receipt of such money or other property, shall be held as security for the payment and performance of the Secured Obligations and shall be applied in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.04.
(c)          Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default and after the Collateral Agent shall have notified the Company of the suspension of the Grantors’ rights under Section 2.05(a)(i), all rights of any Grantor to exercise the voting and consensual rights and powers it is entitled to exercise pursuant to Section 2.05(a)(i), and the obligations of the Collateral Agent under Section 2.05(a)(i), shall cease, and all such rights shall thereupon become vested in the Collateral Agent, which shall have the sole and exclusive right and authority to exercise such voting and consensual rights and powers.
