WHEREAS, each Lender under the Credit Agreement immediately prior to giving effect to the effectiveness of this Amendment (an “Existing Lender”) that has executed a consent to this Amendment in substantially the form attached to this Amendment (a “Consent”) will be deemed to have agreed to all of the amendments to the Credit Agreement set forth in this Amendment and to have instructed the Administrative Agent to enter into and consent to this Amendment on behalf of such Existing Lender (each such Existing Lender that has so executed a Consent, a “Consenting Lender”);

(e)    The New Term B-3 Lender hereby agrees to acquire, as assignee from each Non-Consenting Existing Term B-3 Lender, the Term B-3 Loans of such Non-Consenting Existing Term B-3 Lender.

Section 4.    Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness.

This Amendment constitutes the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. This Amendment shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof that, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Amendment by telecopy or other electronic imaging means shall be as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.

Each and every term, condition, obligation, covenant and agreement contained in the Credit Agreement, after giving effect to this Amendment, or any other Credit Document is hereby ratified and re-affirmed in all respects and shall continue in full force and effect. Each Credit Party reaffirms its obligations under the Credit Documents to which it is party and the validity of the Liens granted by it pursuant to the Collateral Documents. This Amendment shall constitute a Credit Document for purposes of the Credit Agreement and from and after the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, all references to the Credit Agreement in any Credit Document and all references in the Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, shall, unless expressly provided otherwise, refer to the Credit Agreement as amended by this Amendment. Each of the Credit Parties hereby (i) consents to this Amendment, (ii) confirms that all obligations of such Credit Party under the Credit Documents to which such Credit Party is a party shall continue to apply to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby and (iii) agrees that all security interests granted by it pursuant to any Credit Document (whether before, on or after the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date) shall secure (and continue to secure) the Obligations (including without limitation Obligations in respect of the Term B-3 Loans) under the Credit Documents as amended by this Amendment. The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the amendment of the Credit Agreement pursuant to this Amendment and all other Credit Documents amended and/or executed and delivered in connection herewith shall not constitute a novation of the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents as in effect prior to the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date.

(c)    If at any time any change in GAAP or in the consistent application thereof would affect the computation of any financial ratio or requirement set forth in any Credit Document, the Parent Borrower may, after giving written notice thereof to the Administrative Agent, determine all such computations on such a basis; provided that if any change in GAAP would affect the computation of any financial ratio or requirement set forth in any Credit Document, and either the Parent Borrower or the Required Lenders shall so request, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Parent Borrower shall negotiate in good faith to amend such ratio or requirement to preserve the original intent thereof in light of such change in GAAP (subject to the approval of the Required Lenders); provided further that, until so amended (i) such ratio or requirement shall continue to be computed in accordance with GAAP prior to such change therein and (ii) the Parent Borrower shall provide to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders financial statements and other documents required under this Credit Agreement or as reasonably requested hereunder setting forth a reconciliation between calculations of such ratio or requirement made before and after giving effect to such change in GAAP. Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein, all terms of an accounting or financial nature used herein shall be construed, and all computations of amounts and ratios referred to herein shall be made, without giving effect to any election under Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 825 (or any other Financial Accounting Standard having a similar result or effect) to value any Indebtedness or other liabilities of the Parent Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries at “fair value”, as defined therein.
(d)    Notwithstanding any change in GAAP after the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date that would require lease obligations that would be treated as operating leases as of the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date to be classified and accounted for as capital leases or otherwise reflected on the consolidated balance sheet of the Consolidated Group, such obligations shall continue to be treated as operating leases and be excluded from the definition of Indebtedness and other relevant definitions for all purposes under this Credit Agreement.
(e)    All references herein to consolidated financial statements of the Parent Borrower and its Subsidiaries or to the determination of any amount for the Parent Borrower and its Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis or any similar reference shall, in each case, be deemed to include each variable interest entity that the Parent Borrower is required to consolidate pursuant to Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 810 as if such variable interest entity were a Subsidiary as defined herein.
1.04
Rounding.
Any financial ratios required to be maintained by the Parent Borrower pursuant to this Credit Agreement shall be calculated by dividing the appropriate component by the other component, carrying the result to one place

-51-

    



more than the number of places by which such ratio is expressed herein and rounding the result up or down to the nearest number (with a rounding-up if there is no nearest number).
1.05
Times of Day.
Unless otherwise provided, all references herein to times of day shall be references to Eastern time (daylight or standard, as applicable).
1.06
Exchange Rates; Currency Equivalents.
The Applicable Agent or the applicable L/C Issuer, as applicable, shall determine the Spot Rates as of each Revaluation Date to be used for calculating Dollar Equivalent amounts of L/C Credit Extensions and Outstanding Amounts denominated in Alternative Currencies. Such Spot Rates shall become effective as of such Revaluation Date and shall be the Spot Rates employed in converting any amounts between the applicable currencies until the next Revaluation Date to occur. Except for purposes of financial statements delivered hereunder or calculating covenants hereunder or except as otherwise provided herein, the applicable amount of any currency (other than Dollars) for purposes of the Credit Documents shall be such Dollar Equivalent amount as so determined by the Applicable Agent or the applicable L/C Issuer. For purposes of complying with covenants whose limitations or thresholds are denominated in United States dollars, the Dollar Equivalent of all amounts necessary to compute such compliance shall be used.
1.07
Additional Alternative Currencies.
Any Borrower may from time to time request that an additional currency be added as “Alternative Currency”; provided that such requested currency is a lawful currency (other than Dollars) that is readily available and freely transferable and convertible into Dollars. Such request shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent and each Multicurrency Revolving Lender, and, to the extent such Alternative Currency is proposed to be available under the Limited Currency Revolving Facility, each Limited Currency Revolving Lender; provided that if such “Alternative Currency” is to be used for Letters of Credit only, such request shall be subject only to the approval of the Administrative Agent and the Multicurrency L/C Issuer.
1.08
Additional Borrowers.
Notwithstanding anything in Section 11.01 to the contrary, following the Closing Date, the Parent Borrower may add one or more of its Foreign Subsidiaries that is a Wholly Owned Subsidiary as an additional Foreign Borrower under the Limited Currency Revolving Facility or Multicurrency Revolving Facility by delivering to the Administrative Agent a Foreign Borrower Agreement executed by such Subsidiary and the Parent Borrower. After (i) five Business Days have elapsed after such delivery and (ii) receipt by the Lenders and the Administrative Agent of such documentation and other information reasonably requested by the Lenders or the Administrative Agent for purposes of complying with all necessary “know your customer” or other similar checks under all applicable laws and regulations, such Foreign Subsidiary shall for all purposes of this Credit Agreement be a Foreign Borrower hereunder; provided that each Foreign Borrower shall also be a Foreign Guarantor. Any obligations in respect of borrowings by any Foreign Subsidiary under the Credit Agreement will constitute “Obligations,” “Foreign Obligations” and “Secured Obligations” for all purposes of the Credit Documents. If the applicable additional Foreign Borrower is organized or incorporated under the laws of, or for applicable Tax purposes is resident of or treated as engaged in a trade or business in, or having a paying agent in, any jurisdiction other than a jurisdiction under the laws of which at least one of the then-existing Borrowers is organized or incorporated on the date such Foreign Borrower Agreement is delivered to the Applicable Agent, as a condition to adding such Foreign Borrower, there shall be an amendment to the Credit Documents (including, without limitation, Section 3.01 of this Credit Agreement and the definition of “Excluded Taxes”), if such amendment is reasonably necessary or appropriate as mutually determined by the Administrative Agent and Parent Borrower which amendment must be as mutually agreed by the Administrative Agent, the Parent Borrower, the applicable additional Foreign Borrower and each Limited Currency Revolving Lender and/or Multicurrency Revolving Lender (as applicable) (provided that no such amendment shall materially adversely affect the rights of any Lender that has not consented to such amendment).

-52-

    



Upon the execution by the Parent Borrower and a Foreign Borrower and delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Foreign Borrower Termination with respect to such Foreign Borrower, such Foreign Borrower shall cease to be a Foreign Borrower and a party to this Credit Agreement; provided that no Foreign Borrower Termination will become effective as to any Foreign Borrower (other than to terminate such Foreign Borrower’s right to make further Borrowings under this Credit Agreement) at a time when any Loan to, B/A on behalf of, or Letter of Credit issued to such Foreign Borrower shall be outstanding hereunder. Promptly following receipt of any Foreign Borrower Agreement or Foreign Borrower Termination, the Administrative Agent shall send a copy thereof to each Lender. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no such Foreign Subsidiary may become a Foreign Borrower if any Limited Currency Revolving Lender or Multicurrency Revolving Lender would be prohibited by applicable Law from making loans to such Foreign Subsidiary.
1.09
Change of Currency.
(a)    Each obligation of the Borrowers to make a payment denominated in the national currency unit of any member state of the European Union that adopts the Euro as its lawful currency after the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date shall be redenominated into Euro at the time of such adoption (in accordance with the EMU Legislation). If, in relation to the currency of any such member state, the basis of accrual of interest expressed in this Credit Agreement in respect of that currency shall be inconsistent with any convention or practice in the London interbank market for the basis of accrual of interest in respect of the Euro, such expressed basis shall be replaced by such convention or practice with effect from the date on which such member state adopts the Euro as its lawful currency; provided that if any Borrowing in the currency of such member state is outstanding immediately prior to such date, such replacement shall take effect, with respect to such Borrowing, at the end of the then current Interest Period.
(b)    Each provision of this Credit Agreement shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify to be appropriate to reflect the adoption of the Euro by any member state of the European Union and any relevant market conventions or practices relating to the Euro.
(c)    Each provision of this Credit Agreement also shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify to be appropriate to reflect a change in currency of any other country and any relevant market conventions or practices relating to the change in currency.
1.10
Letter of Credit Amounts.
Unless otherwise provided, all references herein to the amount of a Letter of Credit at any time shall be deemed to mean the Dollar Equivalent of the maximum face amount available to be drawn of such Letter of Credit after giving effect to all increases thereof contemplated by such Letter of Credit or the Issuer Documents related thereto, whether or not such maximum face amount is in effect at such time.
1.11
Limited Condition Acquisitions.
In connection with any action being taken in connection with a Limited Condition Acquisition for purposes of determining
(a)    whether any Indebtedness that is being incurred in connection with such Limited Condition Acquisition is permitted to be incurred in compliance with Section 8.03 or Section 2.01(f);
(b)    whether any Lien being incurred in connection with such Limited Condition Acquisition is permitted to be incurred in accordance with Section 8.01 or Section 2.01(f);
(c)    whether any other transaction undertaken or proposed to be undertaken in connection with such Limited Condition Acquisition complies with the covenants or agreements contained in this Credit Agreement; and

-53-

    



(d)    any calculation of the ratios or baskets, including the Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio, Senior Secured Leverage Ratio, Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio, Consolidated Net Income, Consolidated EBITDA and baskets determined by reference to Consolidated EBITDA or Consolidated Total Assets and whether a Default or Event of Default exists in connection with the foregoing (other than in the case of each of clause (a), (b), (c) and (d) above, with respect to any Credit Extension under the Revolving Facility):
at the option of the Borrower (the Borrower’s election to exercise such option in connection with any Limited Condition Acquisition, an “LCA Election”), the date that the definitive agreement for such Limited Condition Acquisition is entered into (the “Transaction Agreement Date”) may be used as the applicable date of determination, as the case may be, in each case with such pro forma adjustments as are appropriate and consistent with the pro forma adjustment provisions set forth in the definition of “Pro Forma Basis,” Consolidated EBITDA or “Consolidated Net Income”. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Parent Borrower makes an LCA Election, (a) any fluctuation or change in the Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio, Senior Secured Leverage Ratio, Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio, Consolidated Net Income, Consolidated EBITDA and/or Consolidated Total Assets of the Parent Borrower from the Transaction Agreement Date to the date of consummation of such Limited Condition Acquisition will not be taken into account for purposes of determining whether any Indebtedness or Lien that is being incurred in connection with such Limited Condition Acquisition is permitted to be incurred, or whether any other transaction undertaken in connection with such Limited Condition Acquisition by the Parent Borrower or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries complies with the Credit Documents and (b) after the Transaction Agreement Date and until such Limited Condition Acquisition is consummated or the definitive agreements in respect thereof are terminated or expire, such Limited Condition Acquisition and all transactions proposed to be undertaken in connection therewith (including without limitation the incurrence of Indebtedness and Liens) will be given Pro Forma Effect as if they occurred at the beginning of the most recently completed four consecutive fiscal quarter period for which financial statements have been delivered pursuant to Section 7.01(a) or (b) and ended on or prior to the Transaction Agreement Date when determining compliance of other transactions (including without limitation the incurrence of Indebtedness and Liens unrelated to such Limited Condition Acquisition) that are consummated after the Transaction Agreement Date and on or prior to the date of consummation of such Limited Condition Acquisition and any such transactions (including without limitation any incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof) will be deemed to have occurred on the Transaction Agreement Date and be outstanding thereafter for purposes of calculating any baskets or ratios under the Credit Documents after the Transaction Agreement Date and before the date of consummation of such Limited Condition Acquisition (or the date the definitive agreements in respect thereof are terminated or expire).

(viii)    the Effective Yield with respect to any Incremental Revolving Facility shall be determined by the Parent Borrower and the Lenders of the Incremental Revolving Facility; provided that with respect to any Incremental Revolving Facility incurred prior to the date that is twelve (12) months after the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, in the event that the Effective Yield for any such Incremental Revolving Facility is greater than the Effective Yield for the applicable Revolving Facility by more than 50 basis points, then the Applicable Percentage for the applicable Revolving Facility shall be increased to the extent necessary so that the Effective Yield for the Incremental Revolving Facility is not more than 50 basis points higher than the Effective Yield for the applicable Revolving Facility; provided, further, with respect to any adjustment to the Applicable Percentage required by the immediately preceding proviso, to the extent any Eurodollar Rate “floor” or Base Rate “floor” applicable to any Incremental Revolving Facility exceeds the Eurodollar Rate “floor” or Base Rate “floor” applicable to the applicable Revolving Facility, the Eurodollar Rate “floor” or Base Rate “floor” applicable to the applicable Revolving Facility shall be increased so that the Eurodollar Rate “floor” and Base Rate “floor” is the same for both the Incremental Revolving Facility and the applicable Revolving Facility but only to the extent an increase in such “floor” applicable to the applicable Revolving Facility would cause an increase in the interest rate then in effect for the applicable Revolving Facility, and in such case the applicable “floor” (but not the Applicable Percentage, except as set forth in the next parenthetical phrase) applicable to the applicable Revolving Facility shall be increased to the extent of such differential between the applicable “floors” (it being understood that the adjustment required pursuant to this proviso will only affect the component of any Applicable Percentage increase required by the immediately preceding proviso that is caused by the Eurodollar Rate or Base Rate “floors” for the Incremental Revolving Facility being higher than such “floors” for the applicable Revolving Facility and not any other component of any such required increase in the Applicable Percentage).    
Any Incremental Revolving Commitment established hereunder shall have terms identical to the Dollar Revolving Commitments, Limited Currency Revolving Commitments or Multicurrency Revolving Commitments, as the case may be, existing on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date; provided that, if required to consummate an Incremental Revolving Commitment, the pricing, interest rate margins, rate floors and undrawn fees on the Revolving Facility being increased may be increased for all Lenders of such Revolving Facility without the consent of any Lender, but additional upfront or similar fees may be payable to the Lenders participating in the Incremental Revolving Commitment without any requirement to pay such amounts to any existing Lenders, it being understood that the Credit Parties and the Administrative Agent may make (without the consent of or notice to any other party) any amendment to reflect such increase in the Revolving Commitments.
Any Incremental Revolving Facility established hereunder shall be on terms to be determined by the Parent Borrower and the Lenders thereunder (and the Parent Borrower and the Administrative Agent may, without the consent of any other Lender, enter into an amendment to this Credit Agreement to appropriately include the Incremental Revolving Facilities hereunder); provided that, to the extent that such terms and documentation are not consistent with the applicable Revolving Facilities (except to the extent permitted by clause (vi) or (viii) above), they shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; provided, further, that (x) without the consent of the Administrative Agent, such documentation may contain additional or more restrictive covenants than any then-existing Term Loans or Revolving Facility if such covenants are applicable only after the Final Maturity Date hereunder and (y) to the extent that any

If the applicable Borrower does not to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer on the Honor Date, the Administrative Agent, at the request of such L/C Issuer, shall promptly notify each L/C Revolving Lender as of the Honor Date the Dollar Equivalent of such unreimbursed drawing (an “Unreimbursed Amount”) and the amount of such L/C Revolving Lender’s L/C Commitment Percentage thereof.
(ii)    Each L/C Revolving Lender shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) make funds available to the Administrative Agent for the account of such L/C Issuer, in Dollars at the Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in Dollars in an amount equal to its L/C Commitment Percentage of such Unreimbursed Amount not later than 1:00 p.m. (Local Time) on the Business Day specified in such notice by the Administrative Agent. With respect to any Unreimbursed Amount, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have incurred from the applicable L/C Issuer an L/C Borrowing in the amount of such Unreimbursed Amount, which L/C Borrowing shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at (i) through and including the third Business Day following the Honor Date, the rate of interest applicable to Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans and (ii) thereafter, the Default Rate.

(iii)    Until an L/C Revolving Lender funds its L/C Advance pursuant to this Section 2.03(c) to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for any amount drawn under any Letter of Credit, interest in respect of such L/C Revolving Lender’s L/C Commitment Percentage of such amount shall be solely for the account of such L/C Issuer.
(iv)    Each L/C Revolving Lender’s obligation to make L/C Advances to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for amounts drawn under Letters of Credit, as contemplated by this Section 2.03(c), shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such L/C Revolving Lender may have against such L/C Issuer, the Parent Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Event of Default, (C) non-compliance with the conditions set forth in Section 5.02, or (D) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided that such L/C Issuer shall have complied with the provisions of Section 2.03(b)(ii). No such making of an L/C Advance shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of each

Borrower to reimburse any L/C Issuer for the amount of any payment made by such L/C Issuer under any Letter of Credit, together with interest as provided herein.
(v)    If any L/C Revolving Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer any amount required to be paid by such L/C Revolving Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.03(c) by the time specified in Section 2.03(c)(ii), such L/C Issuer shall be entitled to recover from such L/C Revolving Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such L/C Issuer at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by such L/C Issuer in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by such L/C Issuer in connection with the foregoing. If such Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s L/C Advance in respect of the relevant L/C Borrowing. A certificate of the applicable L/C Issuer submitted to any applicable L/C Revolving Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (v) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)    Repayment of Participations.
(i)    At any time after any L/C Issuer has made a payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any L/C Revolving Lender such L/C Revolving Lender’s L/C Advance in respect of such payment in accordance with Section 2.03(c), if the Administrative Agent receives for the account of such L/C Issuer any payment in respect of the related Unreimbursed Amount or interest thereon (whether directly from the applicable Borrower or otherwise, including proceeds of cash collateral applied thereto by the Administrative Agent), the Administrative Agent will distribute to such L/C Revolving Lender its L/C Commitment Percentage (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such L/C Revolving Lender’s L/C Advance was outstanding), in the same currency in which such L/C Revolving Lender’s L/C Advance was made and in the same type of funds as those received by the Administrative Agent.
(ii)    If any payment received by the Administrative Agent for the account of any L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) is required to be returned under any of the circumstances described in Section 11.05 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such L/C Issuer in its discretion), each L/C Revolving Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such L/C Issuer its L/C Commitment Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned by such L/C Revolving Lender, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Bank Funding Rate from time to time in effect. The obligations of the L/C Revolving Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Credit Agreement.
(e)    Obligations Absolute. The obligation of each Borrower to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for each drawing under each Letter of Credit and to repay each L/C Borrowing shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Credit Agreement under all circumstances, including the following:
(i)    any lack of validity or enforceability of such Letter of Credit, this Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document;
(ii)    the existence of any claim, counterclaim, setoff, defense or other right that any Borrower, any Subsidiary may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), any L/C Issuer or any other Person, whether in connection with this Credit Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by such Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated transaction;
(iii)    any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under such Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue

-67-

    



or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under such Letter of Credit;
(iv)    any payment by any L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by any L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law;
(v)    any adverse change in the relevant exchange rates or in the availability of the relevant Alternative Currency to any Borrower or any Subsidiary or in the relevant currency markets generally; or
(vi)    any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Borrower or any Subsidiary.
The applicable Borrower shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to such Borrower and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with such Borrower’s instructions or other irregularity, such Borrower will immediately notify the applicable L/C Issuer. The Borrowers shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against the applicable L/C Issuer and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid.
(f)    Role of the L/C Issuers in such Capacity. Each L/C Revolving Lender and each Borrower agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, no L/C Issuer shall have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of any L/C Issuer, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Related Parties nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of any L/C Issuer shall be liable to any L/C Revolving Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Required L/C Lenders; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment); or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Issuer Document. Each Borrower hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to such Borrower’s use of any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude such Borrower’s pursuing such rights and remedies as such Borrower may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of any L/C Issuer, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Related Parties nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of any L/C Issuer, shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in clauses (i) through (vi) of Section 2.03(e); provided, however, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, each Borrower shall have a claim against each L/C Issuer, and each L/C Issuer shall be liable to each Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by such Borrower that are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment to have been caused by such L/C Issuer’s willful misconduct or gross negligence (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment) or such L/C Issuer’s willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, each L/C Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and each L/C Issuer shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, that may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason.
(g)    Cash Collateral. Upon the request of the Administrative Agent or the applicable L/C Issuer, (i) if any L/C Issuer has honored any full or partial drawing request under any Letter of Credit and such drawing has

-68-

    



resulted in a L/C Borrowing, or (ii) if, as of the L/C Expiration Date, any Letter of Credit may for any reason remain outstanding and partially or wholly undrawn the applicable Borrower shall immediately Cash Collateralize the then Outstanding Amount of all L/C Obligations (in an amount equal to 103% of such Outstanding Amount determined as of the date of such L/C Borrowing or the L/C Expiration Date, as the case may be). The Administrative Agent may, at any time and from time to time after the initial deposit of cash collateral, request that additional cash collateral be provided in order to protect against the results of exchange rate fluctuations. For purposes hereof, “Cash Collateralize” means to pledge and deposit with or deliver to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the applicable L/C Issuer and the L/C Revolving Lenders, as collateral for such L/C Obligations, cash or deposit account balances pursuant to customary documentation in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer (which documents are hereby consented to by the Lenders). Derivatives of such term have corresponding meanings. Cash collateral shall be maintained in blocked, interest bearing deposit accounts or money market fund accounts at the Administrative Agent.
(h)    Applicability of ISP. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by any L/C Issuer and the applicable Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued, the rules of the ISP shall apply to each Letter of Credit.
(i)    Letters of Credit Issued for Subsidiaries. Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of any obligations of, or is for the account of any Subsidiary of the Parent Borrower, the Borrowers shall be obligated to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for any and all drawings under such Letter of Credit. The Borrowers hereby acknowledge that the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of the Parent Borrower’s Subsidiaries inures to the benefit of the Borrowers, and that each Borrower’s business derives substantial benefits from the businesses of such Subsidiaries.
(j)    Letter of Credit Fees. The Borrowers shall pay Letter of Credit Fees as set forth in Section 2.09(b).
(k)    Conflict with Issuer Documents. In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of any Issuer Document, the terms hereof shall control.
(l)    Addition of L/C Issuer. Parent Borrower may, at any time and from time to time, designate one or more additional Revolving Lenders to act as a Dollar L/C Issuer or a Multicurrency L/C Issuer under the terms of this Agreement, with the consent of the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) and such Revolving Lender.  Any Revolving Lender designated as a Dollar L/C Issuer or Multicurrency L/C Issuer, as the case may be, pursuant to this Section 2.03(l) shall have all the rights and obligations of the Dollar L/C Issuer and Multicurrency L/C Issuer, respectively, under the Credit Documents with respect to Letters of Credit issued or to be issued by it, and all references in the Credit Documents to the term “L/C Issuer,” “Dollar L/C Issuer” or “Multicurrency L/C Issuer” shall, with respect to such Letters of Credit, be deemed to refer to such Lender in its capacity as the L/C Issuer, as the context shall require.  The Administrative Agent shall notify the Revolving Lenders of any such additional L/C Issuer.  If at any time there is more than one L/C Issuer hereunder, Parent Borrower may, in its discretion, select which L/C Issuer is to issue any particular Letter of Credit.
2.04
Additional Provisions with Respect to Swingline Loans.
(a)    Borrowing Procedures. Each Swingline Borrowing shall be made upon the Parent Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent by delivery to the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent of a written Loan Notice, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Parent Borrower. Each such notice must be received by the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York time) on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, which shall be a minimum of $100,000, and (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day. Promptly after receipt by the Swingline Lender of any Loan Notice, the Swingline Lender will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has also received such Loan Notice and, if not, the Swingline Lender will notify the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof. Unless the Swingline Lender has received notice (by telephone or in writing) from the Administrative Agent prior to 3:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date of the proposed Swingline Borrowing (A)

-69-

    



directing the Swingline Lender not to make such Swingline Loan as a result of the limitations set forth in this Article II, or (B) that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 5.01 (if on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date) and Section 5.02 is not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swingline Lender will, not later than 4:00 p.m. (New York time) on the borrowing date specified in such Loan Notice, make the amount of its Swingline Loan available to the Parent Borrower at its office by crediting the account of the Parent Borrower on the books of the Swingline Lender in immediately available funds. The Swingline Lender shall not be required to make any Swingline Loan at any time when a Dollar Revolving Lender is a Defaulting Lender (except if all of the Swingline Exposure of such Defaulting Lender is reallocated pursuant to Section 2.16).
(b)    Refinancing.
(i)    The Swingline Lender at any time in its sole and absolute discretion may (and, in any event, within ten Business Days of the applicable Swingline Borrowing, shall) request that each Dollar Revolving Lender fund its risk participations in Swingline Loans in an amount equal to such Dollar Revolving Lender’s Dollar Revolving Commitment Percentage of Swingline Loans then outstanding. Each Dollar Revolving Lender shall make an amount equal to its Dollar Revolving Commitment Percentage of the amount specified in such notice available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds for the account of the Swingline Lender at the Administrative Agent’s Office not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the day specified in such notice. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Swingline Lender.
(ii)    Each Dollar Revolving Lender’s funding of its risk participation in the relevant Swingline Loan and each Dollar Revolving Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender pursuant to Section 2.04(b)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such participation.
(iii)    If any Dollar Revolving Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender any amount required to be paid by such Dollar Revolving Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.04(b) by the time specified in Section 2.04(b)(i), the Swingline Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Dollar Revolving Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the Swingline Lender at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Swingline Lender in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Swingline Lender in connection with the foregoing. If such Dollar Revolving Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Dollar Revolving Lender’s funded participation in the relevant Swingline Loan. A certificate of the Swingline Lender submitted to any Dollar Revolving Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (iii) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(iv)    Each Dollar Revolving Lender’s obligation to purchase and fund risk participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to this Section 2.04(b) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such Dollar Revolving Lender may have against the Swingline Lender, the Parent Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Event of Default, (C) non-compliance with the conditions set forth in Section 5.02, or (D) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided that Swingline Lender has complied with the provisions of Section 2.04(a). No such purchase or funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Parent Borrower to repay Swingline Loans, together with interest as provided herein.
(c)    Repayment of Participations.
(i)    At any time after any Dollar Revolving Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Swingline Loan, if the Swingline Lender receives any payment on account of such Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender will distribute to such Dollar Revolving Lender its Dollar Revolving Commitment Percentage of such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such

-70-

    



Dollar Revolving Lender’s risk participation was funded) in the same funds as those received by the Swingline Lender.
(ii)    If any payment received by the Swingline Lender in respect of principal or interest on any Swingline Loan is required to be returned by the Swingline Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 11.05 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Swingline Lender in its discretion), each Dollar Revolving Lender shall pay to the Swingline Lender its Dollar Revolving Commitment Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate. The Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the Swingline Lender. The obligations of the Dollar Revolving Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Credit Agreement.
(d)    Interest for Account of Swingline Lender. The Swingline Lender shall be responsible for invoicing the Parent Borrower for interest on the Swingline Loans. Until each Dollar Revolving Lender funds its risk participation pursuant to this Section 2.04 of any Swingline Loan, interest in respect thereof shall be solely for the account of the Swingline Lender.
(e)    Payments Directly to Swingline Lender. The Parent Borrower shall make all payments of principal and interest in respect of the Swingline Loans directly to the Swingline Lender.

-72-

    



(i)    in the case of B/A Drawings and Loans other than Swingline Loans, (A) notice thereof must be received by 12:00 noon (Local Time) by the Applicable Agent at least three (3) Business Days prior to the date of prepayment, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans, and one (1) Business Day prior to the date of prepayment, in the case of Base Rate Loans and B/A Drawings, (B) any such prepayment shall be a minimum principal amount of (n) $1.0 million and integral multiples of $1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, (o) €1.0 million and integral multiples of €1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Euros, (p) £1.0 million and integral multiples of £1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Sterling, (q) C$1.0 million and integral multiples of C$1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Canadian Dollars, (r) kr7.0 million and integral multiples of kr7.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Swedish Krona, (s) AU$1.0 million and integral multiples of AU$1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Australian Dollars, (t) ¥100.0 million and integral multiples of ¥100.0 million thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Japanese Yen, (u) CHF1.0 million and integral multiples of CHF1.0 million thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Swiss Francs, (v) C$1.0 and integral multiples of C$100,000 in excess thereof, in the case of Base Rate Loans denominated in Canadian Dollars and B/As Drawings, (w) Dkr2.0 million and integral multiples of Dkr1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Danish Krone, (x) MXN5.0 million and integral multiples of MXN1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Mexican Pesos, (y) R$1.0 million and integral multiples of R$1.0 million in excess thereof, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Brazilian Real and (z) $1.0 million and integral multiples of $100,000 in excess thereof, in the case of Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, or, in each case the entire remaining principal amount thereof, if less; and
(ii)    in the case of Swingline Loans, (A) notice thereof must be received by the Swingline Lender by 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date of prepayment (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), and (B) any such prepayment shall be in the same minimum principal amounts as for advances thereof (or any lesser amount that may be acceptable to the Swingline Lender).
Each such notice of voluntary prepayment hereunder shall be irrevocable and shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment, or amount owed in respect of an outstanding B/A Drawing or portion thereof to be cash collateralized, the Loans and Types of Loans that are being prepaid or B/A Drawings to be cash collateralized and, if Eurodollar Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Loans. The Applicable Agent will give prompt notice to the applicable Lenders of any prepayment on the Loans or cash collateralization of amounts owed in respect of outstanding B/As and the Lender’s interest therein. Prepayments of Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder shall be accompanied by accrued interest on the amount prepaid and breakage or other amounts due, if any, under Section 3.05. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a notice of voluntary prepayment delivered by the Parent Borrower may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Parent Borrower (by notice to the Applicable Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied. For the avoidance of doubt, all Original Revolving Commitments shall terminate on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date and Parent Borrower shall repay all outstanding Original Revolving Loans and Original Swingline Loans, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon.

Any such prepayment from any Net Cash Proceeds required by the previous sentence shall be made (x) in the case of a Major Disposition in respect of which the notice referred to in Section 7.02(g) has not been delivered on or before the fifteenth (15th) Business Day following the receipt of the Net Cash Proceeds from such Major Disposition or to the extent such notice does not indicate reinvestment is intended with the Net Cash Proceeds of such Major Disposition, on or before the twenty-fifth (25th) Business Day following receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds and (y) in any other case, promptly after the Parent Borrower determines that it will not reinvest such Net Cash Proceeds in accordance with the terms and limitations of the previous sentence, but in no event later than 366 days (or 546 days if a contractual commitment to reinvest such Net Cash Proceeds has been made within the initial 366-day period) following the receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds.
(iii)    Indebtedness. Prepayment will be made on the Loan Obligations in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Net Cash Proceeds received from any incurrence or issuance of Indebtedness after the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date (other than Indebtedness expressly permitted to be incurred or issued pursuant to Section 8.03, (other than (a) Refinancing Debt and (b) initial borrowings under Replacement Revolving Commitments)); provided that prepayments required by initial borrowings under Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be applied only to borrowings under the Replaced Revolving Commitments (with reduction or termination of Revolving Commitments being replaced as required by clause (i) of the proviso to Section 2.19(a)); provided, further, that prepayments required by initial borrowings or Refinancing Term Loans or incurrence of Refinancing Notes/Loans shall be applied only to borrowings under the Refinancing Term Loans (with reduction or termination of Revolving Commitments being replaced as required by clause (i) of the proviso to Section 2.18(a)). Any prepayment in respect of such Indebtedness hereunder will be payable on the Business Day following receipt by the Parent Borrower or other members of the Consolidated Group of the Net Cash Proceeds therefrom.
(iv)    Consolidated Excess Cash Flow. If for any fiscal year of the Parent Borrower ending after December 31, 2016 there shall be Consolidated Excess Cash Flow, then, on a date that is no later than five Business Days following the date that financial statements for such fiscal year are required to be delivered pursuant to Section 7.01(a), the Loan Obligations shall be prepaid by an amount equal to the ECF Application Amount for such fiscal year less any voluntary prepayments of Term Loans made during such fiscal year (other than such voluntary prepayments that are funded by the proceeds of Indebtedness and for the avoidance of doubt other than any prepayments made on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date).
(v)    Eurodollar Prepayment Account. If the Parent Borrower is required to make a mandatory prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans under this Section 2.06(b), so long as no Event of Default exists, the Parent Borrower shall have the right, in lieu of making such prepayment in full, to deposit an amount equal to such mandatory prepayment with the Applicable Agent in a cash collateral account maintained (pursuant to documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Applicable Agent) by and in the sole dominion and control of the Applicable Agent. Any amounts so deposited shall be held by the Applicable Agent as collateral for the prepayment of such Eurodollar Rate Loans and shall be applied to the prepayment of the applicable Eurodollar Rate Loans at the earliest of (x) the end of the current Interest Periods applicable thereto, (y) three months following the date of such deposit and (z) at the election of the Applicable Agent, upon the

-75-

    



occurrence of an Event of Default. At the request of the Parent Borrower, amounts so deposited shall be invested by the Applicable Agent in Cash Equivalents maturing on or prior to the date or dates on which it is anticipated that such amounts will be applied to prepay such Eurodollar Rate Loans; any interest earned on such Cash Equivalents will be for the account of the Parent Borrower and the Parent Borrower will deposit with the Applicable Agent the amount of any loss on any such Cash Equivalents to the extent necessary in order that the amount of the prepayment to be made with the deposited amounts may not be reduced.
(vi)    Foreign Dispositions and Consolidated Excess Cash Flow. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.06, (i) to the extent that any of or all the Net Cash Proceeds of any Subject Disposition or Involuntary Disposition by a Foreign Subsidiary (collectively, a “Foreign Disposition”) or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow attributable to Foreign Subsidiaries are prohibited or delayed by applicable local law from being repatriated to the United States, the portion of such Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow so affected will not be required to be applied to prepay Loan Obligations at the times provided in this Section 2.06 but may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary so long, but only so long, as the applicable local law will not permit repatriation to the United States (the Parent Borrower hereby agreeing to cause the applicable Foreign Subsidiary to promptly take all commercially reasonable actions available under applicable local law to permit such repatriation), and once such repatriation of any of such affected Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow that, in each case, would otherwise be required to be used to make a prepayment pursuant to Section 2.06(b)(ii) or 2.06(b)(iv), is permitted under the applicable local law, such repatriation will be immediately effected and such repatriated Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow will be promptly (and in any event not later than ten Business Days after such repatriation) applied (net of additional Taxes payable or reserved against as a result thereof) to the prepayment of the Loan Obligations pursuant to this Section 2.06 and (ii) to the extent that the Parent Borrower has determined in good faith that repatriation of any of or all the Net Cash Proceeds of any Foreign Disposition or Foreign Subsidiary Consolidated Excess Cash Flow would have material adverse Tax cost consequences with respect to such Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow, such Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow so affected may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary; provided that, in the case of this clause (ii), on or before the date on which any such Net Cash Proceeds so retained would otherwise have been required to be applied to reinvestments or prepayments pursuant to Section 2.06(b) or any such Consolidated Excess Cash Flow would have been required to be applied to prepayments pursuant to Section 2.06(b), the Parent Borrower applies an amount equal to such Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow to such reinvestments or prepayments, as applicable, as if such Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow had been received by the Parent Borrower rather than such Foreign Subsidiary, less the amount of additional Taxes that would have been payable or reserved against if such Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow had been repatriated (or, if less, the Net Cash Proceeds or Consolidated Excess Cash Flow that would be calculated if received by such Foreign Subsidiary).
(c)    Application. Within each Loan, prepayments will be applied first to Base Rate Loans, then to Eurodollar Rate Loans in direct order of Interest Period maturities. In addition:
(i)    Voluntary Prepayments of Loans. Prepayments of the Term A-2 Loans or Term B-3 Loans pursuant to Section 2.06(a) shall be applied to either tranche of Term Loans as directed by the Parent Borrower (and, within such tranche, shall be applied to the payments required under Section 2.05(c) (in the case of the Term A-2 Loans) and Section 2.05(d) (in the case of Term B-3 Loans) as directed by the Parent Borrower). Voluntary prepayments on the Loan Obligations will be paid by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective interests therein.
(ii)    Mandatory Prepayments of Loans. Mandatory prepayments on the Loan Obligations will be paid by the Applicable Agent to the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective interests therein; provided that:

-76-

    



(A)    Mandatory prepayments in respect of the Revolving Commitments under subsection (b)(i)(A) above shall be applied to the respective Revolving Obligations as appropriate.
(B)    Mandatory prepayments in respect of Subject Dispositions and Involuntary Dispositions under subsection (b)(ii) above, Indebtedness under subsection (b)(iii) and Consolidated Excess Cash Flow under subsection (b)(iv) above shall be applied (i) first to the Term A-2 Loans and Term B-3 Loans on a pro rata basis (in direct order of maturity and, within such tranche, shall be applied on a pro rata basis to the payments required under Section 2.05(c) (in the case of the Term A-2 Loans) and Section 2.05(d) (in the case of Term B-3 Loans)), then (ii) to the Revolving Obligations (without permanent reduction of the Revolving Commitments); provided that prepayments in respect of Indebtedness under subsection (b)(iii) with the proceeds of Refinancing Debt or Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be applied only to the Loan or Commitment being refinanced.
(iii)    Cash Collateralization of B/A Drawings. Amounts to be applied pursuant to this Section 2.06 or Article IX to cash collateralize amounts to become due with respect to outstanding B/As shall be deposited in the Prepayment Account (as defined below). The Canadian Agent shall apply any cash deposited in the Prepayment Account allocable to amounts to become due in respect of B/As on the last day of their respective Contract Periods until all amounts due in respect of outstanding B/As have been prepaid or until all the allocable cash on deposit has been exhausted. For purposes of this Credit Agreement, the term “Prepayment Account” means an account established by a Canadian Borrower with the Canadian Agent and over which the Canadian Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal for application in accordance with this paragraph (iii). The Canadian Agent will, at the request of such Canadian Borrower, invest amounts on deposit in the Prepayment Account in short-term, cash equivalent investments selected by the Canadian Agent in consultation with such Canadian Borrower that mature prior to the last day of the applicable Contract Periods of the B/As to be prepaid; provided that the Canadian Agent shall have no obligation to invest amounts on deposit in the Prepayment Account if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing. The Borrowers shall indemnify the Canadian Agent for any losses relating to the investments so that the amount available to prepay amounts due in respect of B/As on the last day of the applicable Contract Period is not less than the amount that would have been available had no investments been made pursuant thereto. Other than any interest earned on such investments (which shall be for the account of such Canadian Borrower, to the extent not necessary for the prepayment of B/As in accordance with this Section 2.06 and Article IX), the Prepayment Account shall not bear interest. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall be deposited in the Prepayment Account and reinvested and disbursed as specified above. If the maturity of the Loans and all amounts due hereunder has been accelerated pursuant to Article IX, the Canadian Agent may, in its sole discretion, apply all amounts on deposit in the Prepayment Account to satisfy any of the Obligations in respect of the Loans, Unreimbursed Amounts and B/As (and each Borrower hereby grants to the Canadian Agent a security interest in its Prepayment Account to secure such Obligations).
2.07
Termination or Reduction of Commitments.
The Commitments hereunder may be permanently reduced in whole or in part by notice from the Parent Borrower to the Administrative Agent; provided that (i) any such notice thereof must be received by 12:00 noon (New York time) at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date of reduction or termination and any such reduction or terminations shall be in a minimum amount of $1.0 million and integral multiples of $1.0 million in excess thereof; and (ii) the Commitments may not be reduced to an amount less than the Outstanding Amount of Loan Obligations then outstanding thereunder. The Administrative Agent will give prompt notice to the Lenders of any such reduction in Commitments. Any reduction of any Commitments shall be applied to the Commitment of each applicable Lender according to its Pro Rata Share. All commitment or other fees accrued with respect to any Commitment through the effective date of any termination thereof shall be paid on the effective date of such termination. A notice of termination of the Commitments delivered by the Parent Borrower may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by

-77-

    



the Parent Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.
2.08
Interest.
(a)    Subject to the provisions of subsection (b) below, (i) each Eurodollar Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof for each Interest Period at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Percentage; (ii) each Loan that is a Base Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable borrowing date at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Percentage; and (iii) each Swingline Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable borrowing date at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Percentage.
(b)    If any amount payable by the Borrowers under any Credit Document is not paid when due, then such amount shall thereafter bear interest at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law.
(c)    Accrued and unpaid interest on past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be due and payable upon demand.
(d)    Interest on each Loan shall be due and payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date applicable thereto and at such other times as may be specified herein. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law.
2.09
Fees.
(a)    Commitment Fees. The Parent Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of (x) each Dollar Revolving Lender in accordance with its Dollar Revolving Commitment Percentage, a commitment fee equal to the Commitment Fee Rate times the actual daily amount by which the Aggregate Dollar Revolving Committed Amount exceeds the sum of (i) the Outstanding Amount of Dollar Revolving Loans (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, any Swingline Loans) and (ii) the Outstanding Amount of Dollar Facility L/C Obligations, (y) each Limited Currency Revolving Lender in accordance with its Limited Currency Revolving Commitment Percentage, a commitment fee equal to the Commitment Fee Rate times the actual daily amount by which the Aggregate Limited Currency Revolving Committed Amount exceeds the sum of (i) the Outstanding Amount of Limited Currency Revolving Loans and (ii) the Outstanding Amount of Limited Currency Facility L/C Obligations and (z) each Multicurrency Revolving Lender in accordance with its Multicurrency Revolving Commitment Percentage, a commitment fee equal to the Commitment Fee Rate times the actual daily amount by which the Aggregate Multicurrency Revolving Committed Amount exceeds the Outstanding Amount of Multicurrency Revolving Loans other than Fronted Currency Loans (such fees, collectively, the “Commitment Fees”). The Commitment Fees shall accrue from and including the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, and shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December (and shall be due and payable on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date as set forth in the next sentence), commencing with the first such date to occur after the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date. The Parent Borrower shall pay all accrued and unpaid Commitment Fees that shall have accrued under this Agreement prior to giving effect to Amendment No. 3 on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date (the “Accrued Commitment Fees”). The Commitment Fees shall be calculated quarterly in arrears.
(b)    Letter of Credit Fees.
(i)    Letter of Credit Fees. The Parent Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each L/C Revolving Lender in accordance with its L/C Commitment Percentage, a Letter of Credit fee, in Dollars, for each Letter of Credit, an amount equal to the Applicable Percentage for Revolving Loans that are Eurodollar Loans multiplied by the daily maximum undrawn Outstanding Amount under such Letter of Credit (the “Letter of

-78-

    



Credit Fees”). For purposes of computing the daily undrawn Outstanding Amount under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.10. The Letter of Credit Fees shall be computed on a quarterly basis in arrears, and shall be due and payable on the tenth (10th) day of each January, April, July and October (for the Letter of Credit Fees accrued during the previous calendar quarter), commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the L/C Expiration Date and thereafter on demand. If there is any change in the Applicable Percentage during any quarter, the daily amount available to be drawn under each Letter of Credit shall be computed and multiplied by the Applicable Percentage separately for each period during such quarter that such Applicable Percentage was in effect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, while any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under Section 9.01(a), (f) or (h), all Letter of Credit Fees shall accrue at the Default Rate. The Parent Borrower shall pay all accrued and unpaid Letter of Credit Fees that shall have accrued under this Agreement prior to giving effect to Amendment No 2 on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date (the “Accrued Letter of Credit Fees”).
(ii)    Fronting Fee and Documentary and Processing Charges Payable to L/C Issuers. The Parent Borrower shall pay directly to each L/C Issuer for its own account a fronting fee with respect to each Letter of Credit issued by it, 0.125% of the daily undrawn Outstanding Amount under such Letter of Credit on a quarterly basis in arrears. Such fronting fee shall be due and payable on the tenth (10th) day of each January, April, July and October (for fronting fees accrued during the previous calendar quarter or portion thereof, in the case of the first payment), commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the L/C Expiration Date and thereafter on demand. For purposes of computing the daily undrawn Outstanding Amount under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.10. In addition, the applicable Borrower shall pay directly to each L/C Issuer for its own account the customary issuance, presentation, amendment and other processing fees, and other standard costs and charges, of the applicable L/C Issuer relating to letters of credit as from time to time in effect. Such customary fees and standard costs and charges are due and payable on demand and are nonrefundable. The Parent Borrower shall pay all accrued and unpaid fronting fees that shall have accrued under this Agreement prior to giving effect to Amendment No 2 on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date (the “Accrued Fronting Fees”).
(c)    B/A Fees. Each Canadian Borrower agrees to pay to the Canadian Agent, in Dollars, for the account of each Multicurrency Revolving Lender, on each date on which a B/A drawn by such Canadian Borrower is accepted hereunder an acceptance fee (the “B/A Fee”) computed by multiplying the Dollar Equivalent of the face amount of each such B/A by the product of (i) the Applicable Percentage for B/A Drawings on such date multiplied by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days in the Contract Period applicable to such B/A and the denominator of which is 365. The Parent Borrower shall pay all accrued and unpaid B/A Fees that shall have accrued under this Agreement prior to giving effect to Amendment No 2 on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date (the “Accrued B/A Fees”).
(d)    Alternative Currency Fronting Currency Lender Fees. The Parent Borrower shall pay each Alternative Currency Fronting Lender such fronting fees (if any) with respect to Fronted Currency Loans as may be agreed among the Administrative Agent, such Alternative Currency Fronting Lender and the Parent Borrower at such times as may be agreed among the Administrative Agent, such Alternative Currency Fronting Lender and the Parent Borrower.
(e)    Other Fees. The Parent Borrower shall pay to the Lead Arrangers, for their own respective accounts, fees in the amounts and at the times specified in the Engagement Letter. The Parent Borrower shall also pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, fees in the amounts and at the times specified in the Administrative Agent Fee Letter. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever. The Administrative Agent Fee Letter is hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects by JPMCB and Parent Borrower, and both such parties agree that it shall remain effective on and following the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date.
The applicable Borrower shall pay to the Lenders such fees as shall have been separately agreed upon in writing in the amounts and at the times so specified. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.

-79-

    



2.10
Computation of Interest and Fees.
All computations of interest for Base Rate loans denominated in Canadian Dollars and Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars when the Base Rate is determined by JPMCB’s prime rate shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. All other computations of fees and interest shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year), or, in the case of interest in respect of Eurodollar Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies as to which market practice differs from the foregoing, in accordance with such market practice. Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which the Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Loan or such portion is paid; provided that any Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall, subject to Section 2.11(a), bear interest for one (1) day. Each determination by the Applicable Agent of an interest rate or fee hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
2.11
Payments Generally; Applicable Agent’s Clawback.
(a)    General. All payments to be made by any Credit Party hereunder shall be made without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff. All payments of principal and interest on any Loan shall be payable in the same currency as such Loan is denominated. All payments of fees pursuant to Section 2.09 shall be payable in Dollars. All payments in respect of Unreimbursed Amounts shall be payable in the currency provided in Section 2.03. All other payments herein shall be payable in the currency specified with respect to such payment or, if the currency is not specified, in Dollars. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Borrowers shall be made to the Applicable Agent, for the account of the Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the Applicable Agent’s Office in Same Day Funds not later than 3:00 p.m. Local Time on the date specified herein. The Applicable Agent will promptly distribute to each Lender its Pro Rata Share of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such Lender’s Lending Office. All payments received by the Applicable Agent after 3:00 p.m. Local Time shall be deemed received on the immediately succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue. Subject to the definition of “Interest Period,” if any payment to be made by the Borrowers shall come due on a day other than a Business Day, payment shall be made on the next following Business Day, and such extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest or fees, as the case may be.
(b)    (i) Funding by Lenders; Presumption by Applicable Agent. Unless the Applicable Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed time of any Borrowing or acceptance and purchase of B/As that such Lender will not make available to the Applicable Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing or the applicable Discount Proceeds (net of applicable acceptance fees), the Applicable Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.02 and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the applicable Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing or the applicable Discount Proceeds (net of applicable acceptance fees) available to the Applicable Agent, then the applicable Lender and the applicable Borrower severally agree to pay to the Applicable Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in Same Day Funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Applicable Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, 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, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing and (B) in the case of a payment to be made by such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to Base Rate Loans. If such Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Applicable Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Applicable Agent shall promptly remit to such Borrower the amount of such interest paid by such Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing to the Applicable Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing or such Lender’s acceptance and purchase of B/As. Any payment by any Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim such Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Applicable Agent.

-80-

    



(ii)    Payments by the Borrowers; Presumptions by Applicable Agent. Unless the Applicable Agent shall have received notice from the applicable Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Applicable Agent for the account of the Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer hereunder that the applicable Borrower will not make such payment, the Applicable Agent may assume that the applicable Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the applicable Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer, as the case may be, the amount due. In such event, if the applicable Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders or the L/C Issuers, as the case may be, receiving any such payment severally agrees to repay to the Applicable Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or L/C Issuer, in Same Day Funds 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 Applicable Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Applicable Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
A notice of the Applicable Agent to any Lender or any Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this subsection (b) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(c)    Failure to Satisfy Conditions Precedent. If any Lender makes available to the Applicable Agent funds for any Loan to be made by such Lender as provided in the foregoing provisions of this Article II, and such funds are not made available to the applicable Borrower by the Applicable Agent because the conditions to the applicable Credit Extension set forth in Article V are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, the Applicable Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
(d)    Obligation of the Lenders Several. The obligations of the Lenders hereunder to make Loans, to accept and purchase B/As, to fund participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans and to make payments pursuant to Section 11.04(c) are several and not joint. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan, to fund any such participation or to make any payment under Section 11.04(c) on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to so make its Loan, to purchase its participation or to make its payment under Section 11.04(c).
(e)    Funding Source. Nothing herein shall be deemed to obligate any Lender to obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner.
(f)    Insufficient Funds. If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Applicable Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, L/C Borrowings, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, toward payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, toward payment of principal and L/C Borrowings then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal and L/C Borrowings then due to such parties.
2.12
Sharing of Payments by Lenders.
If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of the Loans made by it, amounts owing to it in respect of any B/A Drawing or the participations in L/C Obligations or in Swingline Loans held by it resulting in such Lender’s receiving payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of such Loans, amounts owing in respect of any B/A Drawing or participations and accrued interest thereon greater than its pro rata share thereof as provided herein, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall (a) notify the Applicable Agent of such fact, and (b) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans, amounts owing in respect of any B/A Drawing and subparticipations in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans of the other Lenders, or make such other adjustments as shall be equitable, so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Loans and other amounts owing them; provided that:

-81-

    



(i)    if any such participations or subparticipations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations or subparticipations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest; and
(ii)    the provisions of this Section shall not be construed to apply to (x) any payment made by any Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Credit Agreement, (y) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans, amounts owing to it in respect of any B/A Drawing or subparticipations in L/C Obligations or Swingline Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to any Borrower or any Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section shall apply) or (z) any payments made pursuant to Sections 2.17, 2.18 or 2.19.
Each Credit Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against such Credit Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Credit Party in the amount of such participation.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the provisions of this Section 2.12 shall be subject to the express provisions of this Credit Agreement which require, or permit, differing payments to be made to non-Defaulting Lenders as opposed to Defaulting Lenders.
2.13
Evidence of Debt.
(a)    The Credit Extensions made by each Lender shall be evidenced by one or more accounts or records maintained by such Lender and evidenced by one or more entries in the Register maintained by the Administrative Agent, acting solely for purposes of Treasury Regulation Section 5f.103-1(c) as a non-fiduciary agent for the Borrowers, in each case in the ordinary course of business. Each other Agent shall promptly provide the Administrative Agent with all information needed to maintain such accounts in respect of the Loans or B/A Drawings administered by such Agent. The accounts or records maintained by the Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error of the amount of the Credit Extensions made by the Lenders to the Borrowers and the interest and payments thereon. Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligation of any Borrower hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to the Obligations. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error. Upon the request of any Lender made through the Administrative Agent, the applicable Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent a Note for such Lender, which shall evidence such Lender’s Loans in addition to such accounts or records. Each Lender may attach schedules to its Note and endorse thereon the date, Type (if applicable), amount and maturity of its Loans and payments with respect thereto.
(b)    In addition to the accounts and records referred to in subsection (a) above, each Lender and the Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records and, in the case of the Administrative Agent, entries in the Register, evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by the Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.
(c)    Each Lender having sold a participation in any of its Obligations, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent for the Borrowers, shall maintain a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of such Participants (and each change thereto, whether by assignment or otherwise) and the rights, interest or obligation of such Participants in any Obligation, in any Commitment and in any right to receive any payments hereunder.
2.14
[Reserved].

2.15
Canadian Bankers’ Acceptances.
(a)    Each acceptance and purchase of B/As of a single Contract Period pursuant to Section 2.01 or 2.02 shall be made ratably by the Multicurrency Revolving Lenders in accordance with their Multicurrency Revolving Commitment Percentage. The failure of any Multicurrency Revolving Lender to accept any B/A required to be accepted by it shall not relieve any other Multicurrency Revolving Lender of its obligations hereunder; provided that the Multicurrency Revolving Commitments are several and no Multicurrency Revolving Lender shall be responsible for any other Multicurrency Revolving Lender’s failure to accept B/As as required.
(b)    The B/As of a single Contract Period accepted and purchased on any date shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of C$1.0 million and not less than C$5.0 million. The face amount of each B/A shall be C$100,000 or any whole multiple thereof. If any Multicurrency Revolving Lender’s ratable share of the B/As of any Contract Period to be accepted on any date would not be an integral multiple of C$100,000, the face amount of the B/As accepted by such Multicurrency Revolving Lender may be increased or reduced to the nearest integral multiple of C$100,000 by the Canadian Agent in its sole discretion. B/As of more than one Contract Period may be outstanding at the same time; provided that there shall not at any time be more than a total of five (5) B/A Drawings outstanding.
(c)    To request an acceptance and purchase of B/As, a Canadian Borrower shall notify the Canadian Agent of such request by telephone or by telecopy not later than 10:00 a.m., Local Time, one Business Day before the date of such acceptance and purchase. Each such Loan Notice shall be irrevocable and, if telephonic, shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or telecopy to the Canadian Agent of a written request in a form approved by the Canadian Agent and signed by such Canadian Borrower. Each such Loan Notice shall specify the following information:
(i)    the aggregate face amount of the B/As to be accepted and purchased;
(ii)    the date of such acceptance and purchase, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)    the Contract Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Contract Period” (and which shall in no event end after the Revolving Termination Date); and
(iv)    the location and number of the applicable Canadian Borrower’s account to which any funds are to be disbursed, which shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.02. If no Contract Period is specified with respect to any requested acceptance and purchase of B/As, then the Canadian Borrower shall be deemed to have selected a Contract Period of 30 days’ duration.
