(b)For purposes of the delivery and receipt of any Mandatory Prepayment Notice (including under Section 10.02), (i) the Borrower consents to the delivery of such Mandatory Prepayment Notice by electronic communications and (ii) the Borrower’s “normal business hours” shall be 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., each Business Day.

respective Applicable Percentages solely in respect of the Revolving Loans.

The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for the Loans upon determination of such interest rate.
(ii)PIK Interest.
(A)At the Borrower’s election, interest may be payable entirely as PIK Interest. If the Borrower has delivered a PIK Interest Election Notice in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.06(a)(ii)(A), on the applicable Interest Payment Date, all accrued and unpaid interest shall be added to the principal amount of the Loans and shall, thereafter, be deemed an extension of additional Loans pursuant to the terms of, and subject to, the Loan Documents. PIK Interest shall be allocated ratably to the principal amounts of the Loans of each Lender in accordance with the Ratable Share of the Loans of such Lender. Unless the context otherwise requires, for all purposes hereof, references to “principal amount” of Loans refers to the original face amount of the Loans plus any increase in the principal amount of the outstanding Loans as a result of payments of PIK Interest. The entire unpaid balance of all PIK Interest shall be immediately due and payable in full in immediately available funds on the Maturity Date. Unless the Borrower delivers a PIK Interest Election Notice to the Administrative Agent at least three (3) Business Days prior to an Interest Payment Date, the Borrower will, subject to the immediately succeeding clause (B) below, be deemed to have elected for each Interest Period, to make interest payments in cash as set forth in Section 2.06(a)(i).
(B)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the addition of PIK Interest to the aggregate principal amount of the Loans shall not result in a reduction of the aggregate principal amount of unused Commitments hereunder.
(b)(i) With the exception of any accrued and unpaid interest that is applied to increase the aggregate principal amount on the Loans pursuant to Section 2.06(a)(ii), if any amount due and payable by the Borrower under any Loan Document is not paid when due (without regard to any applicable grace periods), whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws, such amount shall thereafter bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of (x) the Floating Rate applicable to such amount and (y) 2.0% for each day until such amount and any interest thereon is paid in full.

(ii)With the exception of any accrued and unpaid interest that is applied to increase the aggregate principal amount on the Loans pursuant to Section 2.06(a)(ii), accrued and unpaid interest on past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be due and payable upon demand.
(c)Except as expressly provided 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.
(d)Commitment Fee. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of each Revolving Lender a commitment fee (the “Commitment Fee”) equal to (i) [__]% ([__] basis points) per annum on the daily unused amount of the Revolving Commitment of each Revolving Lender during the period from and including the Amendment No. 4 Effective Date to but excluding the earlier to occur of the date on which (i) the Availability Period with respect to such Revolving Commitment expires or (ii) the Revolving Commitment terminates. Accrued Commitment Fees shall be payable in arrears (x) on each Interest Payment Date and (y) on the date that the Revolving Commitment expires or terminates. Commitment Fees shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (including on the first day but excluding the last day). The Administrative Agent shall forward to each Lender its Applicable Percentage of such payment.
(e)Administrative Agent Fees. The Borrower shall pay the Administrative Agent the fees and other amounts at the times and in the amounts specified in, and in accordance with, the Agent Fee Letter.
(f)USD LIBOR Replacement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document:
(i)On March 5, 2021 the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”), the regulatory supervisor of USD LIBOR’s administrator (“IBA”), announced in a public statement the future cessation or loss of representativeness of overnight/Spot Next, 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and 12-month USD LIBOR tenor settings. On the earlier of (A) the date that all Available Tenors of USD LIBOR have either permanently or indefinitely ceased to be provided by IBA or have been announced by the FCA pursuant to public statement or publication of information to be no longer representative and (B) the Early Opt-in Effective Date, if the then-current Benchmark is USD LIBOR, the Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any setting of such Benchmark on such day and all subsequent settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document. If the Benchmark Replacement is Daily Simple SOFR, all interest payments will be payable on a quarterly basis.
(ii)Upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, the Benchmark Replacement will replace the then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Lenders without any amendment to, or further action or

57


consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from Lenders comprising the Required Lenders. At any time that the administrator of the then-current Benchmark has permanently or indefinitely ceased to provide such Benchmark or such Benchmark has been announced by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark pursuant to public statement or publication of information to be no longer representative of the underlying market and economic reality that such Benchmark is intended to measure and that representativeness will not be restored, the Borrower may revoke any request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Loans to be made, converted or continued that would bear interest by reference to such Benchmark until the Borrower’s receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent that a Benchmark Replacement has replaced such Benchmark, and, failing that, the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Loans. During the period referenced in the foregoing sentence, the component of Base Rate based upon the Benchmark will not be used in any determination of Base Rate.
(iii)In connection with the implementation and administration of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time with the consent of the Borrower and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement.
(iv)The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of (A) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement and (B) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent or, if applicable, the Borrower or any Lender (or group of Lenders) pursuant to this Section, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party hereto, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 2.06.
(v)At any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (A) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including Term SOFR or USD LIBOR), then the Administrative Agent may remove any tenor of such Benchmark that is unavailable or non-representative for Benchmark (including Benchmark Replacement) settings and (B) the Administrative Agent shall reinstate any such previously removed tenor for Benchmark (including Benchmark Replacement) settings.
2.07.Computations
. All 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

58


paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year); provided that all computations of interest for Base Rate Loans (including Base Rate Loans determined by reference to LIBOR) shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. Interest shall accrue on the Loans for the day on which the Loans are made, and shall not accrue on the Loans, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Loan or such portion is paid; provided that if the Loans are repaid on the same day on which it is made, the Loans shall, subject to Section 2.11(a), bear interest for one day. Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate hereunder, including pursuant to and in accordance with Section 2.06, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. Any Interest Period stated to end on a day numerically corresponding to a given day in a specified month thereafter shall, if there is no corresponding day, end on the last Business Day of such month.

2.08.Termination of Commitments
.
(a)The (i) Original Initial Loan Commitments automatically terminated upon the funding of the relevant Original Initial Loans and (ii) the Initial Loan Commitments automatically terminated upon the funding of the Initial Loans on the Amendment No. 4 Effective Date.
(b)Subject to Section 2.08(c) below, the Revolving Commitments and any Additional Loan Commitments shall automatically terminate at 5:00 p.m. on the last Business Day of the applicable Availability Period; provided that such termination shall not occur if the failure to fund within the applicable Availability Period results solely from the action or inaction of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders in violation of the terms of this Agreement. The Additional Loan Commitments of each applicable Additional Lender shall be reduced, Dollar for Dollar, by the amount of each Additional Loan made by such Additional Lender. Subject to Section 2.05, the Commitments of each Lender shall automatically and permanently be reduced to zero upon the delivery of a Mandatory Prepayment Notice.
(c)The Borrower may, upon notice to the Administrative Agent, terminate any unused Commitments, or from time to time permanently reduce any unused Commitments; provided that (i) any such notice shall be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 p.m. (Noon) two (2) Business Days prior to the date of termination or partial reduction, and (ii) any such partial reduction shall be in an aggregate amount of $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof. Subject to Section 2.11(j), any reduction of Commitments shall be applied to the Commitments of each Lender ratably, according to the Commitments held by each Lender. All fees accrued with respect thereto until the effective date of any termination or reduction of the Commitments shall be paid on the effective date of such termination or reduction.
2.09.LTV Maintenance; LTV Notice.
(a)If, upon the close of business on any Scheduled Trading Day, the Calculation Agent determines that the LTV Ratio exceeds the LTV Margin Call Level (a “Collateral Shortfall”), the Calculation Agent shall deliver a Collateral Shortfall Notice to the Borrower; provided that, subject to the last sentence of this Section 2.09(a), if the Calculation Agent has failed to deliver such Collateral Shortfall Notice by 5:30 p.m. on the date on which such Collateral Shortfall occurs, if any Lender determines that a Collateral Shortfall has occurred, such Lender may (subject

59


to the last sentence of this Section 2.09(a)) deliver or cause to be delivered a Collateral Shortfall Notice to the Borrower (with a copy thereof to each other Lender and Agent) with the same effect as if such Collateral Shortfall Notice had been delivered by the Calculation Agent; provided, further, that any failure to so deliver a copy of a Collateral Shortfall Notice to any Lender or Agent shall not invalidate the effectiveness of such Collateral Shortfall Notice. The Borrower shall:
(i)no later than 2:00 p.m. on the first Business Day following delivery of a Collateral Shortfall Notice from the Calculation Agent or a Lender (the Business Day of such delivery of such Collateral Shortfall Notice, a “Collateral Shortfall Notice Day”) inform the Calculation Agent (or such Lender, as applicable) that it intends to satisfy such Collateral Shortfall Notice;
(ii)no later than Noon on the second Business Day following a Collateral Shortfall Notice Day, provide the Calculation Agent with SWIFT or Fedwire instructions for delivery of any funds to be used to prepay the Loans, if applicable, as contemplated in clause (iii) below; provided that it is understood and agreed that so long as the Borrower otherwise complies with clause (iii) below, any failure of the Borrower to timely provide the Calculation Agent (or, if a Lender delivered such Collateral Shortfall Notice, such Lender) with SWIFT or Fedwire instructions as required in this clause (ii) shall not result in a Default or Event of Default; and
(iii)no later than 4:00 p.m. on the second Business Day after a Collateral Shortfall Notice Day, (A) voluntarily prepay the Loans in accordance with Section 2.04 (including payment of all accrued and unpaid interest on the Loans so prepaid, amounts owing under Section 3.04) and/or (B) cause Cash or Cash Equivalents, that will constitute Eligible Cash Collateral upon such delivery, and/or additional Shares, that will constitute Eligible Pledged Shares upon such delivery, to be delivered to the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender in accordance with Section 3 of the Security Agreement, in each case, in an amount sufficient to reduce the LTV Ratio to be equal to or less than the LTV Reset Level, as of the date or payment and/or delivery, all as determined by the Calculation Agent.

For purposes of delivery and receipt of any Collateral Shortfall Notice and Section 10.02 with respect to any such Collateral Shortfall Notice, (i) the Borrower consents to the delivery of such Collateral Shortfall Notice by electronic communications and (ii) the Borrower’s “normal business hours” shall be 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each Business Day. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the event that the LTV Ratio exceeds the LTV Margin Call Level, as determined by the Calculation Agent, following a Potential Adjustment Event, a Spin-Off Event or an Issuer Merger Event, then the Calculation Agent and the Lenders agree not to send a Collateral Shortfall Notice until such time as the Calculation Agent has made its (or, subject to the terms and conditions of the proviso to this sentence, the Required Lenders have made their) determination as to the appropriate adjustments, if any, to be made to (i) the Minimum Price, (ii) the Maximum Share Number, (iii) the LTV Margin Call Level and/or (iv) the LTV Reset Level, in each case, in accordance with and subject to the provisions of Section 1.02(d); provided that, if the Calculation Agent fails to make its determination with respect to such adjustments by 5:30 p.m. on such Collateral Shortfall Notice Day, the Required Lenders (provided that the outstanding Loans held

60


by, and unused Commitments of, the Calculation Agent and its Affiliates shall be excluded for purposes of making such determination of Required Lenders) may make such adjustments, if any, in each case, in accordance with and subject to the provisions of Section 1.02(d) with the same effect as if they were made by the Calculation Agent.

(b)Upon the reasonable request of the Borrower, the Calculation Agent shall notify the Borrower of the LTV Ratio, as determined in accordance with the definition of “Market Reference Price” within one (1) Exchange Day after the Borrower’s date of such request. It is understood and agreed that any determination of the LTV Ratio made by the Calculation Agent pursuant to this Section 2.09 or otherwise will be made in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner (and, if made in accordance with such standard will be conclusive).
(c)If, following the announcement (whether by an Issuer or any relevant third party) of (i) a Spin-Off Event or (ii) a firm intention to engage in a transaction (whether or not subsequently amended) that, if completed, would reasonably be expected to lead to an Issuer Merger Event, the Calculation Agent reasonably determines, following non-binding consultation with the Borrower during the same consultation period described in the definition of “Valuation Percentage”, that the securities or any other property that would be distributed to the holders of shares constituting the Pledged Shares, in connection with such Issuer Merger Event or Spin-Off Event, as the case may be, would not meet the criteria for a Valuation Percentage of 100% set forth in the proviso to the definition of “Valuation Percentage”, and in connection with the completion of such distribution, the Borrower would be required, pursuant to Section 2.09(a), to deliver any additional Cash or Cash Equivalents that will constitute Eligible Cash Collateral and/or additional Shares that will constitute Eligible Pledged Shares (based on the applicable Valuation Percentage reasonably determined by the Calculation Agent for purposes of determining the Collateral Value with respect to such Merger Shares or Spin-Off Shares, as the case may be, as set forth in the definition of “Valuation Percentage” and any other adjustments to be made pursuant to Section 1.02(d)), then the Calculation Agent shall determine the amount of Cash, Cash Equivalents and/or Shares that will constitute Eligible Cash Collateral and/or Eligible Pledged Shares, as applicable, upon such delivery, to be delivered to the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender in accordance with Section 3 of the Security Agreement for the LTV Ratio not to exceed the LTV Margin Call Level as a result of such distribution (the “LTV Event Amount”).

Within one (1) Business Day after the Calculation Agent determines the LTV Event Amount, which determination shall occur not more than eight (8) Business Days prior to the date on which such a distribution is scheduled to occur (or such shorter period of time if the scheduled distribution is less than eight (8) Business Days following the public announcement), the Calculation Agent shall deliver a notice to the Borrower setting forth the LTV Event Amount. No later than 4:00 p.m. on the earlier to occur of the (i) third Business Day after delivery of such notice and (ii) the date of such distribution, the Borrower shall cause Cash, Cash Equivalents and/or Shares that will constitute Eligible Cash Collateral and/or Eligible Pledged Shares, as applicable, upon such delivery, to be delivered to the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender in accordance with Section 3 of the Security Agreement, in an amount equal to the LTV Event Amount. With effect from such delivery of the LTV Event Amount, the Calculation Agent shall adjust the Collateral Value in its commercially reasonable sole discretion to give effect to the foregoing determinations, with such adjustment terminating upon the earliest to occur of (i) the determination of a Valuation Percentage

61


with respect to such securities upon their distribution and (ii) the announcement by any Issuer or relevant third party of the withdrawal or abandonment of such Issuer Merger Event or Spin-Off Event, as the case may be (it being understood that the withdrawal or abandonment of any such Issuer Merger Event or Spin-Off Event, as the case may be, does not preclude the occurrence of another Issuer Merger Event or Spin-Off Event).

If, following the delivery of Eligible Cash Collateral and/or Eligible Pledged Shares in the requisite LTV Event Amount, any Issuer or relevant third party announces the withdrawal or abandonment of such Issuer Merger Event or Spin-Off Event, or the Calculation Agent determines following consummation of such Issuer Merger Event or Spin-Off Event that the Valuation Percentage is greater than initially determined for purposes of calculating the LTV Event Amount, then, upon receipt of a written request therefor from the Borrower, the Calculation Agent shall promptly originate an instruction or entitlement order to the Custodian directing the release and transfer of any applicable Collateral constituting the LTV Event Amount from the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender to the Borrower (or the Borrower’s designee) such that the LTV Ratio does not exceed the LTV Margin Call Level as calculated by the Calculation Agent to correspond to the revised Valuation Percentage (provided that the Borrower may elect to maintain in the Collateral Account all or any portion of such LTV Event Amount permitted to be so released). Notwithstanding the foregoing, prior to the Calculation Agent sending notice of an LTV Event Amount, the Calculation Agent shall make all other adjustments pursuant to Section 1.02(d) hereof and any LTV Event Amount shall be calculated based on such adjustments.

(d)The Borrower may not withdraw any Collateral from the Collateral Accounts, except (i) in accordance with clauses (c) through (f) and/or clause (h) of this Section 2.09, (ii) with the prior written consent of each Lender or (iii) in connection with a Disposition and/or Restricted Payment, as applicable, of Pledged Shares held in the Collateral Accounts as permitted under Section 7.04 and Section 7.07, respectively; provided that, at the time of any such withdrawal, in the event the Collateral consists of Shares (other than Spin-Off Shares) and Spin-Off Shares, the Calculation Agent may, in an equitable manner as the Calculation Agent determines necessary to preserve for the Lenders and the Borrower the intent of the parties and the fair economic value and risks in the Loans before giving effect to the Spin-Off Event relating to such Spin-Off Shares, after non-binding consultation with the Borrower, determine the required ratio of the value (determined based on the Market Reference Price) of the Shares of the relevant Issuer relating to such Spin-Off Event constituting Collateral to the value (determined based on the Market Reference Price) of the Spin-Off Shares relating to such Spin-Off Event constituting Collateral, in each case, after giving effect to such withdrawal, to be withdrawn; provided, further, that, in the event such ratio results in the value (determined based on the Market Reference Price) of the Shares issued by a particular Issuer constituting [__]% or more of the value (determined based on the Market Reference Price) of the Collateral consisting of Pledged Shares remaining after giving effect to such withdrawal, then the Borrower may elect to include Shares issued by such Issuer in the Collateral in a percentage in excess of [__]% of the value (determined based on the Market Reference Price) of the Collateral consisting of Pledged Shares, and other Shares not issued by such Issuer shall be permitted to be released to the extent otherwise permitted under clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) of this clause (d).
(e)Collateral shall be released from the Liens created under the Collateral Documents as follows:

62


(i)the Calculation Agent and each Applicable Lender shall have received a written notice from the Borrower requesting a release of such Collateral on the date specified therein (which date shall be no earlier than the Business Day immediately following the first Business Day on which the Calculation Agent and the Applicable Lenders have received such notice by 1:00 p.m. (or such shorter period as the Calculation Agent and the Applicable Lenders may agree)), including the amount and type of Collateral requested to be released;
(ii)after giving effect to such release and any other release otherwise requested or effected pursuant to this Section 2.09(e) and any Disposition pursuant to Section 7.04, the LTV Ratio would be equal to or less than the Initial LTV Level;
(iii)no Event of Default shall exist or would occur immediately after giving effect to such release; and
(iv)on the date of such release the Borrower is not required to make any prepayment and/or provide additional Collateral under Section 2.05 or Section 2.09(a) (and will not be required to take any such action as a result of the proposed release).

Any such notice delivered pursuant to the immediately preceding clause (i) shall contain a representation and warranty by the Borrower to the items set forth in the immediately preceding clauses (ii) and (iii). Upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in this Section 2.09(e), the Calculation Agent shall be permitted, without the consent of the Lenders (but the Calculation Agent shall give each Applicable Lender prompt notice thereof), and hereby agrees, on the date specified in such written notice of the Borrower (which date shall be no earlier than the Business Day immediately following the first Business Day on which the Calculation Agent and the Applicable Lenders have received such notice by 1:00 p.m. (or such shorter period as the Calculation Agent and the Applicable Lenders may agree)), to release such Collateral from the Liens created under the Collateral Documents and send written directions to the Custodian, as provided and in accordance with the Collateral Account Control Agreement, to transfer such Collateral to an account or accounts as directed by the Borrower in such written notice; provided however, upon receiving written notice from the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.09(e)(i), if any Applicable Lender acting in a commercially reasonable manner disputes in good faith that the conditions set forth in Section 2.09(e) have been satisfied and subsequently notifies the Calculation Agent of such dispute prior to release, then absent manifest error on behalf of such Applicable Lender, the Calculation Agent shall not release such Lender’s Collateral from Liens under the Collateral Documents; provided, further, that the release of Collateral pursuant to Section 2.09(f) shall not be subject to the requirements of this Section 2.09(e). Collateral of the type requested to be released by the Borrower shall be released from any Lien created under the Collateral Documents (A) on a ratable basis among the Applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares of the amount and type of Collateral being released and (B) in an aggregate amount equal to the lowest of (I) the amount of Collateral requested to be released by the Borrower in such written notice, (II) an amount of Collateral with a value such that, after giving effect to such release and any other release otherwise requested or effected pursuant to this Section 2.09(e) and any Disposition pursuant to Section 7.04, the LTV Ratio would not be greater than the Initial LTV Level and (III)

63


the aggregate amount of such type of Collateral requested to be released by the Borrower held in the Collateral Accounts.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the case of an Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event, (i) upon receipt of a written request therefor from the Borrower, the Calculation Agent shall (and may, without the consent of any Lender) promptly originate an instruction or entitlement order to the Custodian directing the release and transfer of any Pledged Shares subject to such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event (but excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, (A) any Shares or other shares received or to be received by the Borrower or that the Borrower is entitled or otherwise has any right or a claim to receive in connection with any such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event and (B) any and all proceeds in respect of any such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event) upon or following the occurrence of such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event, regardless of whether the conditions to release of Collateral set forth in this Section 2.09(e) are otherwise met, (ii) to the extent it is necessary for the Calculation Agent or any Applicable Lender to take action under the Collateral Documents to cause the Pledged Shares subject to such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event to cease to be Pledged Shares upon the occurrence of such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event, then the Calculation Agent or such Applicable Lender shall take such action (and each Secured Party authorizes the taking of such actions by the Calculation Agent and such Applicable Lender), and (iii) to the extent it is necessary for the Borrower to take action to cause (x) any Shares, Permitted Assets, other assets, consideration or proceeds received in respect of such Issuer 251(g) Merger Event, Issuer Merger Event or Issuer Tender to Merger Event or (y) any Shares tendered in the tender offer relating to an Issuer Tender to Merger Event where (A) such tender offer is not settled within three (3) Business Days following any tender of Shares by the Borrower in such tender offer, (B) such Shares are properly withdrawn prior to expiration or (C) such tender offer is terminated prior to such Shares being accepted by the offeror, in the case of each of clause (x) and clause (y), to constitute Collateral pledged under the Security Agreement to each Applicable Lender, on a ratable basis, Borrower agrees to take such actions as may be reasonably requested by the Calculation Agent or any Lender to confirm or ensure that such Shares, Permitted Assets, other assets, consideration, proceeds or previously tendered Shares promptly constitute Collateral pledged under the Security Agreement to each Applicable Lender, on a ratable basis, and, if Shares, Permitted Assets, other assets, consideration, proceeds or previously tendered Shares are so pledged, then, to the extent such Shares, Permitted Assets, other assets, consideration, proceeds or previously tendered Shares may be held in an account subject to the Collateral Account Control Agreement, the Borrower will take such actions as may be reasonably requested by the Calculation Agent or any Lender to cause such Shares, Permitted Assets, other assets, consideration, proceeds or previously tendered Shares to be held in accounts subject to the Collateral Account Control Agreement.

(f)(i) Upon receipt by the Calculation Agent of written notice from the Borrower requesting the release and application of Eligible Cash Collateral for the purpose of either (1) making an interest payment on the Loans then due and payable or (2) repaying or prepaying any PIK Interest, the Calculation Agent shall be permitted, without the consent of the Lenders (but the Calculation Agent shall give each Applicable Lender and the Administrative Agent prompt notice

64


thereof), on the date specified in such notice (which date shall be no earlier than the Business Day immediately following the first Business Day on which the Calculation Agent has received such notice by 1:00 p.m.), to release such Eligible Cash Collateral from the Liens created under the Collateral Documents and cause the Administrative Agent to apply such released Eligible Cash Collateral as directed by the Borrower in such written notice.

(ii) Upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in this Section 2.09(f), Eligible Cash Collateral shall be released from any Lien created under the Collateral Documents (A) among the Applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective ratable basis of the Eligible Cash Collateral being released and (B) in an aggregate amount equal to the lowest of (I) the amount of Collateral requested to be released by the Borrower in such written notice and (II) the aggregate amount Eligible Cash Collateral requested to be released by the Borrower held in the Collateral Accounts, and an amount equal to the amount of Eligible Cash Collateral released by each Applicable Lender shall be applied by the Administrative Agent in accordance with the preceding clause (i) to the Obligations owing to such Applicable Lender and its Agented Lenders.

(g)In addition to transfers made pursuant to Section 2.09(a) or (c) or in connection with Dispositions under Section 7.04(a), (b) or (c), the Borrower may transfer (i) Cash, Cash Equivalents and/or Shares that will constitute Eligible Cash Collateral and Eligible Pledged Shares, as applicable, upon such transfer, and (ii) assets other than Cash, Cash Equivalents and Shares that each of the Lenders has consented to in writing to be included as Collateral (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), in each case of clauses (i) and (ii), into the Collateral Accounts on any Business Day, and the Calculation Agent shall adjust the LTV Ratio accordingly which shall become effective one (1) Business Day after the posting of such additional Collateral, as applicable (except in the case of Section 2.09(a) or (c) or in connection with a Disposition under Section 7.04(a), (b) or (c), which such adjustments shall be effective on the date of delivery of Eligible Cash Collateral and/or Eligible Pledged Shares); provided that, except in the case of Section 2.09(a) or (c) or Section 7.04(a), (b) or (c), the Calculation Agent shall only be required to make such adjustment with respect to a transfer by the Borrower having a Collateral Value of at least $1,000,000.
(h)If (i) any Constrictive Amendment referred to in clause (i)(ii) of the definition of “Potential Adjustment Event” is not approved in the applicable shareholder vote such that a Potential Adjustment Event shall be deemed not to have occurred and any adjustments made in connection therewith shall automatically cease to be effective (in each case, as provided in such clause (i)(ii)), then, upon receipt of a written request therefor from the Borrower, the Calculation Agent shall (without the consent of any Lender) promptly originate an instruction or entitlement order to the Custodian directing the release and transfer of any applicable Collateral posted as a result of such Potential Adjustment Event from the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender to the Borrower (or the Borrower’s designee) such that the LTV Ratio does not exceed the LTV Margin Call Level as calculated by the Calculation Agent without giving effect to such adjustments, (ii) there occurs a Triggering of an Issuer Event with respect to any Issuer of Spin-Off Shares, and such Spin-Off Shares shall cease to constitute Eligible Pledged Shares at all times thereafter, then, so long as the LTV Ratio does not exceed the LTV Margin Call Level or, if a Collateral Shortfall Notice is received, Borrower cures a Collateral Shortfall in accordance with Section 2.09(a), upon receipt of a written request therefor from the Borrower, the Calculation Agent shall (without the

65


consent of any Lender) promptly originate an instruction or entitlement order to the Custodian directing the release and transfer of such Spin-Off Shares from the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender to the Borrower (or the Borrower’s designee) or (iii) there occurs a Potential Adjustment Event with respect to any Spin-Off Shares and Borrower elects to exclude the Collateral Value of such Spin-Off Shares from the calculation of the LTV Ratio as provided in the last paragraph of the definition of “Potential Adjustment Event” and otherwise complies with the provisions of such paragraph, then, so long as the LTV Ratio does not exceed the LTV Margin Call Level, upon receipt of a written request therefor from the Borrower, the Calculation Agent shall (without the consent of any Lender) promptly originate an instruction or entitlement order to the Custodian directing the release and transfer of such Spin-Off Shares from the Collateral Account of each Applicable Lender to the Borrower (or the Borrower’s designee).
(i)To the extent that the Borrower elects or is required to transfer or deposit Shares, Cash, Cash Equivalents or any other item of Collateral into any Collateral Accounts, the Borrower shall effect such transfer or deposit by transferring or depositing into each Applicable Lender’s Collateral Account, such Shares, Cash, Cash Equivalents or any other item of Collateral in accordance with their Ratable Shares of such item of Collateral.
(j)At the reasonable request of any Agent, the Custodian, any Applicable Lender or the Borrower, the parties hereto agree to execute and deliver such documents, agreements or instruments as are reasonably requested to evidence and/or give effect to the release of Liens described in this Section 2.09.
(k)To the extent an assignment of Loans or Commitments by any Lender pursuant to Section 10.06 requires the distribution or reallocation of Collateral, the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.09 shall not apply to any such distribution or reallocation.
2.10.Evidence of Debt
.
(a)Register. The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower (and, to the extent the Borrower is disregarded for U.S. federal income tax purposes, of the Borrower’s regarded owner for U.S. federal income tax purposes), shall maintain in the United States a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of Lenders and each Lender’s Commitment and Ratable Share of the Loans (and stated interest with respect thereto) from time to time (the “Register”). The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower or any Lender (with respect to such Lender’s portion of any Loan) at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. The Administrative Agent shall record in the Register each Lender’s Commitment, the initial principal amount of each Loan, stated interest thereon, and each repayment or prepayment in respect of the principal amount thereof, and any assignment thereof, and any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower and each Lender, absent manifest error; provided that failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Obligations.
(b)Notes. No promissory note shall be required to evidence the Loans by the Lenders to the Borrower. Upon the request of a Lender, the Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Lender a Note (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), which shall evidence such Lender’s Ratable Share of the applicable Loans in addition to the foregoing accounts or records. A Lender

66


may attach schedules to a Note and endorse thereon the date, amount and maturity of its Ratable Share of such Loans and payments with respect thereto.
2.11.Payments Generally.
(a)All payments to be made by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder shall be made without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff, except with respect to Taxes as provided in Section 3.01. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder shall be made to the Administrative Agent at the Agent Account in Dollars and in immediately available funds not later than 3:00 p.m. on the date specified herein. All payments received by the Administrative Agent after 3:00 p.m. shall be deemed received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest shall continue to accrue.
(b)Except to the extent otherwise provided herein, the Loans, each payment or prepayment of principal of the Loans, each payment of interest on the Loans and each other payment hereunder shall be allocated among the Lenders pro rata in accordance with their Ratable Shares of the Loans (provided that, if the Borrower makes an election pursuant to Section 2.11(j), such payment shall be allocated to the Lenders holding Loans of the Type so prepaid pro rata in accordance with their Ratable Shares of the Loans of such Type). The Administrative Agent agrees to forward to the Lenders such principal, interest and other payments on the same Business Day as such amounts are received, collected or applied by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower, unless the Administrative Agent receives such amounts after 11:00 a.m., in which case such payments may be forwarded by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders on the next Business Day.
(c)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Loan that such Lender will not make available to Administrative Agent such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such Loan, Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such Applicable Percentage of such Loan available on such date in accordance with Section 2.02 and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its Applicable Percentage of such Loan available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation and (ii) in the case of a payment to be made by the Borrower, the Floating Rate. If the Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Borrower the amount of such interest paid by the Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays its Applicable Percentage of the applicable Loan to Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such borrowing. Any payment by the Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim the Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to Administrative Agent.
(d)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower

67


will not make such payment in full, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent on such date and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each Lender on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender. If and to the extent the Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent, each Lender shall repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender together with interest thereon at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to such Lender to but excluding the date such Lender or the Borrower repays such amount to the Administrative Agent. A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Lender with respect to any amount owing under this subsection (d) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(e)Except as expressly set forth herein, if any payment to be made by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower or the date for the performance of any covenant shall come due on a day other than a Business Day, payment or performance, as applicable, shall be made on the next following Business Day, and, for payments, such extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest.
(f)Nothing herein shall be deemed to obligate a Lender to obtain the funds for its Ratable Share of the Loans in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for its Ratable Share of the Loans in any particular place or manner.
(g)If any Lender makes available to the Administrative 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 Borrower by the Administrative Agent because the conditions to the applicable credit extension set forth in Article IV are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
(h)The obligations of Lenders hereunder to make Loans and to make payments pursuant to Section 10.04(c) are several and not joint. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan or to make any payment under Section 10.04(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 10.04(c).
(i)All payments (including prepayments and any other amounts received hereunder other than payments and amounts received in connection with the exercise of the Agents’ and each Applicable Lenders’ rights after an Event of Default) made by the Borrower to Administrative Agent or any Lender under any Loan Document shall be applied to amounts then due and payable in the following order: (i) to any expenses and indemnities payable by the Borrower to any Agent under any Loan Document, (ii) ratably to any expenses and indemnities payable by the Borrower to any Lender under any Loan Document, (iii) subject to Section 2.11(j), to any accrued and unpaid interest and fees due under this Agreement, (iv) subject to Section 2.11(j), to principal payments on the outstanding Initial Loans, Revolving Loans and/or Additional Loans (if any) pro

68


rata and (v) to the extent of any excess, to the payment of all other Obligations under the Loan Documents.
(j)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall apply to or restrict (i) the payment of the Commitment Fee, other fee or interest payable with respect to any Initial Loans, Revolving Commitment, Revolving Loans, Additional Loan Commitments and/or Additional Loans, as applicable, (ii) the reduction or termination of the Revolving Commitments and/or Additional Loan Commitments pursuant to Section 2.08 (and payments of Commitment Fees due on the date of any such termination) or (iii) the prepayment of any Initial Loans, Revolving Loans and/or Additional Loans (if any), whether in full or in part, pursuant to Section 2.04, Section 2.05 or Section 2.09(a), in each case, on a non-pro rata basis with respect to any other Type of Loans as the Borrower shall elect; provided that if the Borrower does not make such election prior to or concurrently with delivering a Voluntary Prepayment Notice, if applicable, any such payments will be applied on a pro rata basis to the outstanding Initial Loans, Revolving Loans and/or Additional Loans (if any).
2.12.Sharing of Payments, Etc.
(a)Each Lender agrees that, in the event that any Lender shall obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on the Loans owing to such Lender under this Agreement through the exercise of a right of setoff, banker’s lien, counterclaim or otherwise (including pursuant to a Debtor Relief Law) (excluding, in each case, any exercise of remedies by an Applicable Lender with respect to its Applicable Collateral or by amounts received by an Applicable Lender with respect to its Applicable Collateral under a Debtor Relief Law) in excess of its Ratable Share of the amounts owed to it hereunder (or, if the Borrower makes an election pursuant to Section 2.11(j), in excess of its Ratable Share of amounts owed to it hereunder with respect to Loans of the Type so prepaid), such Lender shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent of such fact and purchase (for cash at face value) from the other Lenders a participation in their portion of the Loans, in such amounts and with such other adjustments from time to time, as shall be equitable in order that all Lenders share such payment in accordance with their respective ratable portion as provided for in this Agreement. Each Lender further agrees that if a payment to a Lender (which is obtained by such Lender through the exercise of a right of setoff, banker’s lien, counterclaim or otherwise) shall be rescinded or must otherwise be restored, each Lender which shall have shared the benefit of such payment shall, by repurchase of a participation theretofore sold, return its share of that benefit to each Lender whose payment shall have been rescinded or otherwise restored. The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing such a participation may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all rights of payment, including setoff, banker’s lien or counterclaim, with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation. For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.12 shall not apply to any exercise by an Applicable Lender of remedies against the Collateral controlled by such Applicable Lender or the assignment or participation of Loans or Commitments otherwise permitted hereunder.
2.13.Defaulting Lender
. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable Law:
(a)Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or

69


disapprove any amendment, waiver, consent or adjustment with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of “Required Lenders” and in Section 8.01.
(b)Reallocation of Payments. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of a Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, or otherwise, and including any amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by that Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 10.08), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to any Agent hereunder; second, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Event of Default has occurred), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; third, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released in order to satisfy obligations of that Defaulting Lender to fund future Loans under this Agreement; fourth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; fifth, so long as no Event of Default has occurred, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and sixth, to that Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its Ratable Share and (y) such Loan were made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of all non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of that Defaulting Lender. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender pursuant to this Section 2.13(b) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(c)Commitment Fees. No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any fee payable under Section 2.06(d) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender).
(d)Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Borrower and the Administrative Agent agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein, that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Ratable Share of the Loans, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release

70


of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
2.14.Rebalancing
.
(a)If, on any date, any Applicable Lender gives written notice to the Calculation Agent, or the Calculation Agent otherwise becomes aware, that (i) any posting or release of Collateral did not occur on a ratable basis among the Applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares of the amount and type of Collateral being posted or released (other than in connection with any distribution of Collateral in connection with an assignment pursuant to Section 10.06), (ii) or the Collateral is not held among the Applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares (including with respect to the types of Collateral held by each Applicable Lender) for any other reason (other than as a result of a Lender exercising remedies in accordance with the Loan Documents) or (iii) Collateral needs to be distributed in connection with an assignment pursuant to Section 10.06, then on, or as promptly as practicable following, such date, the Calculation Agent shall notify the Applicable Lenders of such circumstances and, on, or as promptly as practicable following the date of such notice, the Applicable Lenders shall cause any transfers of Collateral from the Collateral Accounts that they control to Collateral Accounts controlled by other Applicable Lenders as may be necessary, as determined by the Calculation Agent, to ensure that the Collateral is held among the Applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares (including with respect to the types of Collateral held by each Applicable Lender). Each Lender agrees to cooperate in good faith with the Calculation Agent and the Custodian to effect such rebalancing, including, for the avoidance of doubt, by submitting written instructions to the Custodian to effect such transfers. The Borrower hereby consents to, and to the extent necessary will cooperate in good faith with, such transfers. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no rebalancing shall be required to the extent the circumstances described in clause (i) or (ii) of this Section 2.14(a) result from (x) a Lender waiving amounts owing to it, whether principal, interest or otherwise, in accordance with Section 10.01(a) or (y) a Lender releasing all or any portion of the Collateral, other than in connection with Section 2.09 or pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the other Loan Documents.
(b)Each of the Lenders and the Borrower hereby authorizes the Calculation Agent to deliver a Collateral Reallocation Instruction to the Custodian, with a copy to the Borrower, (i) in order to instruct the Custodian to effect any rebalancing described in the preceding clause (a) and (ii) in connection with any Subsequent Loan Borrowing to the extent necessary to ensure that the Collateral is held on a Pro Rata Basis. Each Lender agrees to cooperate in good faith with the Calculation Agent and the Custodian to effect any such reallocation, including, for the avoidance of doubt, by submitting written instructions to the Custodian to effect such reallocation and any related transfers of Collateral. The Borrower hereby consents to, and to the extent necessary will cooperate in good faith with, such transfers.
2.15.Additional Commitments and Loans.
(c)The Borrower may, at its option, from time to time following the Amendment No. 4 Effective Date, by delivery of a written notice to the Administrative Agent, obtain Additional Loan Commitments (any term loans made with respect to such Additional Loan Commitments being herein referred to as “Additional Loans”); provided that (i) the aggregate

71


amount of Additional Loan Commitments obtained since the Amendment No. 4 Effective Date shall not exceed $200,000,000, (ii) the Borrower shall not be permitted to obtain Additional Loan Commitments on more than nine (9) occasions (unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent) and (iii) there shall be no more than ten (10) Tranches of Loans and/or Commitments outstanding hereunder at any time. Each such notice (x) shall be delivered to the Administrative Agent at least ten (10) Business Days prior to the requested date on which such Additional Loan Commitments are to be effective (the “Additional Loans Closing Date”) (or such shorter time as the Administrative Agent may agree) and shall specify the amount of the Additional Loan Commitments to be obtained and the applicable Additional Loans Closing Date and (y) may not be delivered at any time that (1) there is an existing Event of Default or (2) a Mandatory Prepayment Notice has been delivered to the Borrower. Additional Loan Commitments may be made and provided by any existing Lender (but no existing Lender will have an obligation to provide Additional Loan Commitments, nor will the Borrower have any obligation to approach any existing Lenders to provide any Additional Loan Commitments) or by any Eligible Assignee; provided that the Administrative Agent shall have a consent right (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) with respect to the addition of any Eligible Assignee as an Additional Lender that is not a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund.
(d)The terms and provisions of any Additional Loan Commitments shall be identical to the Initial Loan Commitments and the terms and provisions of any Additional Loans made with respect thereto shall be identical to the Initial Loans; provided, however, that (i) the Base Spread and any upfront fees of or relating to any such Additional Loans may be at the then-market rates and (ii) the Maturity Date for such Additional Loans may be the same as or later than (but shall be no earlier than) the Maturity Date for any then-existing Loans.
(e)The effectiveness of any Additional Loan Commitments on the applicable Additional Loans Closing Date and the occurrence of any extension of credit thereunder shall be subject only to the satisfaction of the following conditions precedent, as applicable: (A) execution and delivery of an Incremental Agreement by the Borrower and each Person agreeing to provide such Additional Loan Commitment, as applicable, (B) notice of such Incremental Agreement, together with a copy of the executed Incremental Agreement and a certificate from a Responsible Officer certifying that the conditions set forth in this Section 2.15 with respect to such Additional Loan Commitments and Additional Loans have been satisfied shall have been delivered to the Agents, (C) each of the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 and (D) such other conditions as the Borrower and each Person agreeing to provide such Additional Loan Commitment, as applicable, shall agree in the applicable Incremental Agreement. In addition, in connection with the effectiveness of any Additional Loan Commitment, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent customary supplemental opinions, corporate resolutions, certificates and other customary documents, in each case as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request in connection therewith. The Borrower shall use the proceeds of any Additional Loans in accordance with Section 6.09. In connection with any Additional Loan Commitments, the Borrower and each Additional Lender agrees to (i) unless the applicable Additional Lender is an existing Applicable Lender and the establishment of a Collateral Account and the execution and delivery of joinders to the Security Agreement and the Collateral Account Control Agreement is not necessary due to such Additional Lender’s existing Collateral Account and Collateral Account Control Agreement, (x) establish a separate Collateral Account with the Custodian, (y) enter into a joinder to the Collateral

72


Account Control Agreement with respect to such Collateral Account and a joinder to the Security Agreement (which joinders shall be acknowledged by the Administrative Agent and the Calculation Agent) and (z) if reasonably requested by the Custodian, enter into a customer account agreement or other agreement with the Custodian and (ii) make appropriate amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to reflect any administrative, technical or similar changes as are reasonably requested by the Applicable Lenders, the Additional Lenders or the Administrative Agent. The Borrower shall deliver to such Additional Lender a Form U-1 or Form G-3 Purpose Statement or, if applicable, an amendment to a Form U-1 or Form G-3 Purpose Statement previously delivered to such Additional Lender in its capacity as a Lender hereunder, duly executed by a Responsible Officer (in each case, unless such Additional Lender has confirmed that it does not require either such form).
(f)Any Additional Loan Commitments shall become effective and become Commitments under this Agreement pursuant to an amendment (an “Incremental Agreement”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Loan Documents, executed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, each Person agreeing to provide such Additional Loan Commitments, as applicable (and, upon the effectiveness thereof, (i) any Person providing such Commitments that is not then a Lender shall become a Lender for all purposes in connection with this Agreement and (ii) any Person providing any Additional Loan Commitments shall become an Additional Lender for all purposes in connection with this Agreement). Notwithstanding anything in Section 10.01 to the contrary, each Incremental Agreement may, without the consent of any other Lender, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.15, including to reflect any new Lenders and their Commitments (it being understood and agreed that the consent of the Required Lenders shall not be required to establish Additional Loan Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.15 or to effect such amendments).
ARTICLE III
TAXES, YIELD PROTECTION AND ILLEGALITY
3.01.Taxes
.
(a)Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 3.01, the term “applicable Law” includes FATCA.
(b)Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding 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 or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.01) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

73


(c)Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
(d)Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify each Recipient, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 3.01(d)) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom 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 delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall also, and does hereby, jointly and severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, and shall make payment in respect thereof within 10 days after demand therefor, for any amount which a Lender for any reason fails to pay indefeasibly to the Administrative Agent as required pursuant to Section 3.01(e) below, net of any amounts the Administrative Agent has received as a set off against such Lender pursuant to Section 3.01(e) below; provided that if the Borrower is required to directly indemnify the Administrative Agent pursuant to this sentence, the Administrative Agent shall take all steps reasonably requested by the Borrower in order to ensure that the Borrower is subrogated to the Administrative Agent’s right to collect from the applicable Lender.
(e)Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify (i) the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), (ii) the Administrative Agent, and the Borrower, as applicable, against any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.06(c) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) the Administrative Agent, and the Borrower, as applicable, against any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or the Borrower in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this subsection (e).
(f)Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 3.01, 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.

74


(g)Status of Lenders
(i).
(ii)Any Lender or Agent 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 or Agent, 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 or Agent 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 Section 3.01(g)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s or Agent’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender or Agent to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender or Agent.
(iii)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
(A)any Lender or Agent that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender or Agent becomes a Lender or Agent under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender or Agent is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
(B)any Foreign Lender or Agent that is not a U.S. Person 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 or such Agent becomes a Lender or Agent 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:
(I)in the case of a Foreign Lender or Agent 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 copies 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, executed copies of 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;

75


(II)executed copies of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(III)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 I-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 (or, to the extent the Borrower is disregarded for U.S. federal income tax purposes, of the Borrower’s regarded owner for U.S. federal income tax purposes) 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 “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or
(IV)to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-2 or Exhibit I-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 U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
(C)any Foreign Lender and any Agent which is not a U.S. Person 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 or Agent becomes a Lender or Agent under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies 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
(D)if a payment made to a Lender or Agent under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender or Agent 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 or Agent 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

76


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 or Agent has complied with such Lender’s or Agent’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 date of this Agreement.

Each Lender and Agent 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.

(h)Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 3.01 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 3.01), 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 3.01 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 subsection (h) (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 subsection (h), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this subsection (h) 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.

3.02.Illegality
. If a Lender determines (after consultation with the Administrative Agent) that any Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for the Lender to make, maintain or fund any Loan, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the LIBOR component of the Floating Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of a Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, Dollars in the London interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, any obligation of such Lender to make or continue its portion of the Loans as Floating Rate Loans shall be suspended 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, the Borrower shall, upon demand from the Lender, either (i) convert such Lender’s portion of the Loans to a Base Rate Loan, either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain its portion of the Loans as Floating Rate Loans to such day or, immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain its portion of the Loans or (ii) prepay such Lender’s portion of the Loans, either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain its portion of the Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain its portion of the Loans as Floating Rate Loans. Upon any such prepayment, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid.
3.03.Increased Costs; Reserves
.
(a)Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:
(i)impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including eurocurrency funds or deposits (currently known as “eurocurrency liabilities”)), special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, a Lender;
(ii)subject any Lender or Agent 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, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or
(iii)impose on a Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement or the portion of the Loans made by such Lender;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender or Agent of making, continuing or maintaining its portion of the Loans (or of maintaining its obligation to make its portion of the Loan) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or Agent hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, upon request of such Lender or Agent, the Borrower will pay to such Lender or Agent such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

(b)Capital Requirements. If a Lender determines that any Change in Law

78


affecting such Lender or its holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of its holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or such Lender’s portion of the Loans to a level below that which such Lender or its holding company could have achieved on such Lender’s portion of the Loans but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of its holding company with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity), then from time to time the Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or its holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c)Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of an Agent or Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Agent or Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in subsection (a) or (b) of this Section 3.03 and delivered to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Agent or Lender, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.
(d)Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of an Agent or Lender to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.03 shall not constitute a waiver of such Agent’s or such Lender’s, as the case may be, right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate an Agent or Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.03 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than 180 days prior to the date that such Agent or Lender, as the case may be, notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except 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).
3.04.Compensation for Losses
. Upon demand of a Lender from time to time, the Borrower shall promptly compensate such Lender for and hold such Lender harmless from any loss, cost or expense incurred by it as a result of:
(a)any payment or prepayment of the Loans on a day other than an Interest Payment Date (whether voluntary, mandatory, automatic, by reason of acceleration, or otherwise); or
(b)any failure by the Borrower (for a reason other than the failure of such Lender to make available on any date specified herein its portion of the Loans) to prepay or borrow the Loans on any date or in the amount specified herein;

including any loss of anticipated profits (other than Base Spread) and any loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain its portion of the Loans or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained. The Borrower shall also pay any customary administrative fees charged by such Lender in connection with the foregoing.

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

79


the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Floating 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, over (ii) the amount of interest which 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 dollar deposits of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the eurodollar market.

3.05.Mitigation Obligations
.
(a)If a Lender requests compensation under Section 3.03, or the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to a Lender, an Agent or any Governmental Authority for the account of such Lender or Agent pursuant to Section 3.01, or if a Lender gives a notice pursuant to Section 3.02, then such Lender or Agent, as the case may be, at the request of the Borrower, shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking the Loans, or its portion thereof, hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates and to take any other actions reasonable in the sole judgment of such Lender or Agent, if, in the sole judgment of such Lender or Agent, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.01 or 3.03, as the case may be, in the future, or eliminate the need for the notice pursuant to Section 3.02, as applicable, and (ii) in each case, would not subject such Lender or Agent to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender or Agent. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by a Lender or Agent in connection with any such designation, assignment or action.

(b)If any Lender requests compensation under Section 3.03, or if the Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 3.01 and, in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different lending office in accordance with Section 3.05(a), or if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender or declines to approve an amendment, waiver or consent that is approved by the Required Lenders, 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 to the restrictions contained in, and consents required by, Section 10.06), all of its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 3.03 or Section 3.01) and obligations under this Agreement and the related Loan Documents to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that:

(i)the Borrower shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the assignment fee (if any) specified in Section 10.06(e);
(ii)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 and under the other Loan Documents from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts);

80


(iii)in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 3.03 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 3.01, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments thereafter;
(iv)such assignment does not conflict with applicable Law; and
(v)in the case of any assignment resulting from a Lender declining to approve an amendment, waiver or consent that is approved by the Required Lenders, the applicable assignee shall have consented to the applicable amendment, waiver or consent.

A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or 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.
