NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises set forth above, the terms and conditions contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto have agreed to enter into this Amendment.
1.Amendments.



(a)Amendments to the Credit Agreement. From and after the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, the parties hereto agree that the Credit Agreement and the relevant Exhibits thereto are hereby amended to delete the stricken text (indicated in the same manner as the following example: stricken text) and to add the double-underlined text (indicated in the same manner as the following example: double-underlined text) as set forth on Exhibit A hereto (the Credit Agreement and such Exhibits as so amended being collectively referred to as the “Amended Credit Agreement”).
(b)Amendments to the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement. From and after the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, the parties hereto agree that the proviso to Section 5.6 of the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement is hereby amended to delete the stricken text (indicated in the same manner as the following example: stricken text) and to add the double-underlined text (indicated in the same manner as the following example: double-underlined text) as set forth below:
; provided, that this Section 5.6 shall not (i) apply to (A) any merger, amalgamation or disposition of a Dormant Subsidiary with and into or to another Dormant Subsidiary and (B) any merger, amalgamation or disposition of any Grantor with and into or to another Grantor, so long as (x) such other Grantor is the surviving or continuing Person, (y) any such merger, amalgamation or disposition with or into a Borrower shall result in such Borrower as the surviving or continuing Person and (z) any such merger, amalgamation or disposition with or into a Grantor that is a Domestic Subsidiary shall result in such Domestic Subsidiary as the surviving or continuing Person or (ii) restrict or otherwise prohibit any Subsidiary that is a Grantor and owns less than $50,000,000 in assets (up to an aggregate amount of $100,000,000 for all such Subsidiaries) from changing its legal name, jurisdiction of organization, structure or the location of its chief executive office or sole place of business, in each case so long as all such transactions and changes are specifically described in the next Compliance Certificate delivered to the Administrative Agent after such transactions and changes pursuant to Section 5.02 of the Credit Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 5.6 is a covenant of the Grantors for the purposes of maintaining the validity, perfection and priority of the security interests provided for herein, and shall not operate to restrict or prohibit any transaction otherwise permitted under the Credit Agreement (it being understood and agreed that any failure to comply with this Section 5.6 shall constitute an Event of Default in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement).
2.New Subsidiary Borrower.
(a)Under the Amended Credit Agreement, the Lenders have agreed, upon the terms and subject to the conditions therein set forth, to make Loans to certain Subsidiary Borrowers, and the Company and LKQ Europe GmbH, a Swiss limited liability company (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung) (the “New Subsidiary Borrower”), desire that the New Subsidiary Borrower become a Subsidiary Borrower under the Amended Credit Agreement. In addition, the New Subsidiary Borrower hereby authorizes the Company to act on its behalf as and to the extent provided for in Article II of the Amended Credit Agreement. The New Subsidiary Borrower is hereby designated as a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower.
(b)Each of the Company and the New Subsidiary Borrower represents and warrants that the representations and warranties of the Company in the Amended Credit Agreement relating to the New Subsidiary Borrower and this Amendment are true and correct on and as of the date hereof, other than representations given as of a particular date, in which case they shall be true and correct as of that
2


date. The Company agrees that the Guarantee Obligations of the Company contained in the Amended Credit Agreement will apply to the Obligations of the New Subsidiary Borrower. Upon the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, and immediately following the effectiveness of the amendments to the Credit Agreement pursuant to Section 1 above, the New Subsidiary Borrower shall be a party to the Amended Credit Agreement and shall constitute a “Subsidiary Borrower” and a “Foreign Subsidiary Borrower” for all purposes thereof, and the New Subsidiary Borrower hereby agrees to be bound by all provisions of the Amended Credit Agreement.
3.Conditions of Effectiveness. This Amendment shall become effective as of the date (the “Amendment No. 5 Effective Date”) each of the following conditions precedent have been satisfied upon the Administrative Agent’s receipt of:
(a)counterparts of this Amendment duly executed and delivered by authorized representatives of each Borrower, the New Subsidiary Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders;
(b)the Consent and Reaffirmation attached hereto duly executed by the Subsidiary Guarantors;

(d)favorable written opinions (addressed to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and dated the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date) of (i) Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP, U.S. counsel to the Loan Parties, and (ii) Baker McKenzie Zurich, Swiss counsel to the New Subsidiary Borrower, in each case, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and covering such matters relating to the Loan Parties, the Amended Credit Agreement, this Amendment and the transactions contemplated hereby as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request. The Company hereby requests such counsel to deliver such opinions;
(e)to the extent requested no later than one (1) Business Day prior to the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, promissory notes executed by the New Subsidiary Borrower in favor of each such requesting Lender;
(f)to the extent requested no later than five (5) Business Days prior to the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, such information requested by the Administrative Agent and the

(g)all amounts due and payable on or prior to the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, including, to the extent invoiced, reimbursement or payment of all out-of-pocket expenses required to be reimbursed or paid by the Borrowers under the Loan Documents.
The Administrative Agent shall notify in writing the Company and the Lenders of the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, and such notice shall be conclusive and binding.
4.Limited Waiver. The Company hereby notifies the Administrative Agent and the Lenders of the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default pursuant to clause (c) of Article VII of the Credit Agreement for failure to comply with Section 5.6 of the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement in connection with the re-domestication and name change of U-Pull-It, North, LLC, an Illinois limited liability company, to LKQ Pick Your Part Midwest, LLC, a Delaware limited liability (such Events of Default, collectively with any other Default or Event of Default that has arisen or may arise directly as a result thereof, the “Specified Events of Default”), and hereby requests that the Required Lenders agree to waive the Specified Events of Default. As of the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, subject to the satisfaction of the condition precedent set forth in Section 3 above and notwithstanding anything in the Credit Agreement to the contrary, by the execution of this Amendment by the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby waive the Specified Events of Default; provided, however, that such waiver shall only apply to the Specified Events of Default, and any other Default or Event of Default, whether now existing or hereafter occurring, shall not be subject to or receive the benefit of such waiver. The parties hereto agree that the foregoing does not establish a custom or course of dealing among the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the Loan Parties or any other Person and, except as expressly contemplated by this Amendment, shall not be deemed to be a consent to any amendment, waiver, modification or alteration of any other term, condition or covenant of the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, or waiver, release or limitation upon the exercise by the Administrative Agent or any Lender of any of its rights thereunder. For the avoidance of doubt, if this Amendment does not become effective pursuant to Section 3 above, nothing herein shall serve as a waiver by the Lenders of any Default or Event of Default, and the Lenders reserve all rights and remedies with respect to any Default or Event of Default.
5.Representations and Warranties of the Borrowers. Each of the Borrowers and the New Subsidiary Borrower hereby represents and warrants as follows:
(a)This Amendment and the Amended Credit Agreement constitute legal, valid and binding obligations of such Borrower or New Subsidiary Borrower, as applicable, enforceable in accordance with their terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law).
(b)As of the date hereof and giving effect to the terms of this Amendment and the Transactions to occur on the date hereof, (i) after giving effect to the waiver in Section 4 above, no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or would result therefrom and (ii) the representations and warranties of such Borrower or New Subsidiary Borrower, as applicable, set forth in Article III of the Amended Credit Agreement are true and correct in all material respects (or in all
4


respects if the applicable representation and warranty is qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect) on and as of the date hereof, except to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they shall be true and correct as of such earlier date.
6.Reference to and Effect on the Credit Agreement.
(a)Upon and after the effectiveness of this Amendment, each reference in the Amended Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, and each reference in the other Loan Documents to “the Credit Agreement”, “thereunder”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, shall mean and be a reference to the Amended Credit Agreement.
(b)The Amended Credit Agreement and all other documents, instruments and agreements executed and/or delivered in connection therewith shall remain in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed.
(c)Except with respect to the subject matter hereof, the execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of the Credit Agreement or any other documents, instruments and agreements executed and/or delivered in connection therewith.
(d)This Amendment is a Loan Document. This Amendment shall be deemed to constitute a “Borrowing Subsidiary Agreement” for purposes of the Amended Credit Agreement.
7.Reaffirmation. In connection with the execution and delivery of this Amendment, each of the undersigned Borrowers, as borrower, debtor, grantor, pledgor, guarantor, or in any other similar capacity in which such Borrower grants liens or security interests in its properties or otherwise acts as an accommodation party or guarantor, as the case may be, in each case under the Loan Documents heretofore executed and delivered in connection with or pursuant to the Credit Agreement (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date of the Amendment, all such agreements being collectively referred to hereinafter as the “Prior Agreements”), (a) hereby ratifies and reaffirms all of its remaining payment and performance obligations, contingent or otherwise, if any, under each of such Loan Documents (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified by this Amendment, as the case may be) to which it is a party, (b) to the extent such Borrower granted liens on or security interests in any of its properties pursuant to any such Loan Documents, hereby ratifies and reaffirms such grant of security and confirms that such liens and security interests continue to secure the Secured Obligations, including, without limitation, all additional Obligations resulting from or incurred pursuant to the Amendment and the Credit Agreement as amended thereby and (c) to the extent such Borrower guaranteed or was an accommodation party with respect to the Secured Obligations or any portion thereof, hereby ratifies and reaffirms such guaranties or accommodation liabilities.
8.Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Amendment shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of New York. Each Borrower and the New Subsidiary Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Amendment and any other Loan Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and
5


determined in such New York State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Amendment or any other Loan Document shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Amendment or any other Loan Document against any Loan Party or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.
9.WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AMENDMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AMENDMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.

If any Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the Company shall reimburse such LC Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent in Dollars the Dollar Amount equal to such LC Disbursement, calculated as of the date such Issuing Bank made such LC Disbursement (or if such Issuing Bank shall so elect in its sole discretion by notice to the Company, in such other Agreed Currency which was paid by such Issuing Bank pursuant to such LC Disbursement in an amount equal to such LC Disbursement) not later than 12:00 noon, Local Time, on the date that such LC Disbursement is made, if the Company shall have received notice of such LC Disbursement prior to 10:00 a.m., Local Time, on such date, or, if such notice has not been received by the Company prior to such time on such date, then not later than 12:00 noon, Local Time, on the Business Day immediately following the day that the Company receives such notice; provided that the Company may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.03 or 2.05 that such payment be financed with an ABR Revolving Borrowing or Swingline Loan denominated in Dollars in an equivalent Dollar Amount of such LC Disbursement and, to the extent so financed, the Company’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting ABR Revolving Borrowing or Swingline Loan. If the Company fails to make such payment when due, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Applicable Lender of the applicable LC Disbursement, the payment then due from the Company in respect thereof and such Lender’s Applicable Percentage thereof. Promptly following receipt of such notice, each Applicable Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent its Applicable Percentage of the payment then due from the Company, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.07 with respect to Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.07 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Applicable Lenders), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable Issuing Bank the amounts so received by it from the Applicable Lenders. Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from the Company pursuant to this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the applicable Issuing Bank or, to the extent that Applicable Lenders have made payments pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse such Issuing Bank, then to such Lenders and such Issuing Bank as their interests may appear. Any payment made by an Applicable Lender pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank for any LC Disbursement (other than the funding of ABR Revolving Loans or a Swingline Loan as contemplated above) shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve the Company of its obligation to reimburse such LC Disbursement. If the Company’s reimbursement of, or obligation to reimburse, any amounts in any Foreign Currency would subject the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Multicurrency Tranche Lender to any stamp duty, ad valorem charge or similar tax that would not be payable if such reimbursement were made or required to be made in Dollars, the Company shall, at its option, either (x) pay the amount of any such tax requested by the Administrative Agent, the relevant Issuing Bank or the relevant Multicurrency Tranche Lender or (y) reimburse each LC Disbursement made in such Foreign Currency in Dollars, in an amount equal to the Equivalent Amount, calculated using the applicable exchange rates, on the date such LC Disbursement is made, of such LC Disbursement.
(f)Obligations Absolute. The Company’s obligation to reimburse LC Disbursements as provided in paragraph (e) of this Section shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by any Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, or (iv) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a
69


right of setoff against, the Company’s obligations hereunder. Neither the Administrative Agent, the Revolving Lenders nor the Issuing Banks, nor any of their Related Parties, shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of an Issuing Bank; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse an Issuing Bank from liability to the Company to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Company to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by the Company that are caused by such Issuing Bank’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of an Issuing Bank (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment), such Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, each Issuing Bank may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Issuing Bank shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if (x) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such Issuing Bank from issuing the Letter of Credit, or any law applicable to such Issuing Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such Issuing Bank shall prohibit, or request that such Issuing Bank refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such Issuing Bank with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which such Issuing Bank is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Restatement Effective Date, or shall impose upon such Issuing Bank any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Restatement Effective Date and which such Issuing Bank in good faith deems material to it or (y) the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such Issuing Bank applicable to letters of credit generally.
(g)Disbursement Procedures. Each Issuing Bank shall, promptly following its receipt thereof, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit. Each Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent and the Company by telephone (confirmed by facsimile) of such demand for payment and whether such Issuing Bank has made or will make an LC Disbursement thereunder; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve the Company of its obligation to reimburse such Issuing Bank and the Applicable Lenders with respect to any such LC Disbursement.
(h)Interim Interest. If any Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement, then, unless the Company shall reimburse such LC Disbursement in full on the date such LC Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such LC Disbursement is made to but excluding the date that the Company reimburses such LC Disbursement, at the rate per annum then applicable to (i) in the case of any such LC disbursement denominated in Dollars, ABR Revolving Loans, (ii) in the case of any such LC disbursement denominated in Canadian Dollars, Canadian Base Rate Loans and (iii) in the case of any such LC Disbursement is denominated in a Foreign
70


Currency other than Canadian Dollars, at the Overnight Foreign Currency Rate for such Agreed Currency plus the then effective Applicable Rate with respect to Eurocurrency Revolving Loans) and such interest shall be due and payable on the date when such reimbursement is payable; provided that, if the Company fails to reimburse such LC Disbursement when due pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section, then Section 2.13(c) shall apply. Interest accrued pursuant to this paragraph shall be for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Applicable Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section to reimburse such Issuing Bank shall be for the account of such Applicable Lender to the extent of such payment.
(i)Replacement of Issuing Bank. Any Issuing Bank may be replaced at any time by written agreement among the Company, the Administrative Agent, the replaced Issuing Bank and the successor Issuing Bank. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Revolving Lenders of any such replacement of an Issuing Bank. At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the Company shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.12(b). From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (i) the successor Issuing Bank shall have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term “Issuing Bank” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Issuing Bank, or to such successor and all previous Issuing Banks, as the context shall require. After the replacement of an Issuing Bank hereunder, the replaced Issuing Bank shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit then outstanding and issued by it prior to such replacement, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.
(j)Cash Collateralization. If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, on the Business Day that the Company receives notice from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders (or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated, a Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders) demanding the deposit of cash collateral pursuant to this paragraph, the Company shall deposit in an account with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Revolving Lenders (the “LC Collateral Account”), an amount in cash equal to 105% of the Dollar Amount of the LC Exposure as of such date plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon; provided that (i) the portions of such amount attributable to undrawn Foreign Currency Letters of Credit or LC Disbursements in a Foreign Currency that the Company is not late in reimbursing shall be deposited in the applicable Foreign Currencies in the actual amounts of such undrawn Letters of Credit and LC Disbursements and (ii) the obligation to deposit such cash collateral shall become effective immediately, and such deposit shall become immediately due and payable, without demand or other notice of any kind, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default with respect to the Company described in clause (h) or (i) of Article VII. For the purposes of this paragraph, the Foreign Currency LC Exposure shall be calculated using the applicable Exchange Rate on the date notice demanding cash collateralization is delivered to the Company. The Company also shall deposit cash collateral pursuant to this paragraph as and to the extent required by Section 2.11(b). Such deposit shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the Secured Obligations. The Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account and the Company hereby grants the Administrative Agent a security interest in the LC Collateral Account. Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of the Administrative Agent and at the Company’s risk and expense (provided that the Administrative Agent may only invest in cash or Cash Equivalents), such deposits shall not bear interest. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account. Moneys in such account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse each Issuing Bank for LC Disbursements for which it has not been reimbursed and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the
71


reimbursement obligations of the Company for the LC Exposure at such time or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated (but subject to the consent of the Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders), be applied to satisfy other Secured Obligations. If the Company is required to provide an amount of cash collateral hereunder as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to the Company within three (3) Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived.
(k)Reporting of Letter of Credit Information and LC Exposure. At any time that there is an Issuing Bank that is not also the financial institution acting as Administrative Agent, then (i) on the last Business Day of each calendar month, (ii) on each date that a Letter of Credit is amended, terminated or otherwise expires, (iii) on each date that a Letter of Credit is issued or the expiry date of a Letter of Credit is extended, and (iv) upon the request of the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank (or, in the case of clauses (ii), (iii) or (iv) hereof, the applicable Issuing Bank) shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a report setting forth in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent information (including, without limitation, any reimbursement, cash collateral, or termination in respect of Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank) with respect to each Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank that is outstanding hereunder. In addition, each Issuing Bank shall provide notice to the Administrative Agent of its LC Exposure, or any change thereto, promptly upon it becoming an Issuing Bank or making any change to its LC Exposure. No failure on the part of any Issuing Bank to provide such information pursuant to this clause shall limit the obligations of the Company or any Lender hereunder with respect to its reimbursement and participation obligations hereunder.
(l)Applicability of ISP and UCP. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the applicable Issuing Bank and the Company when a Letter of Credit is issued (including any such agreement applicable to an Existing Letter of Credit), (i) the rules of the ISP shall apply to each standby Letter of Credit, and (ii) the rules of the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, as most recently published by the International Chamber of Commerce at the time of issuance shall apply to each commercial Letter of Credit.
SECTION 2.08.Funding of Borrowings. (a) Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds (i) in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars to the applicable Borrower, by 12:00 noon, New York City time, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders, (ii) in the case of each Loan denominated in Canadian Dollars, by 10:00 a.m., Local Time, in the city of the Administrative Agent’s Applicable Payment Office for Canadian Dollars and at such Applicable Payment Office for Canadian Dollars and (iii) in the case of each Loan denominated in a Foreign Currency (other than Canadian Dollars) or to a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, by 12:00 noon, Local Time, in the city of the Administrative Agent’s Applicable Payment Office for such currency and Borrower and at such Applicable Payment Office for such currency and Borrower; provided that (i) Additional Term Loans shall be made as provided in Section 2.01(c) and (ii) Swingline Loans shall be made as provided in Section 2.05. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the relevant Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to (x) an account of the applicable Borrower maintained with the Administrative Agent in New York City or Chicago and designated by the applicable Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request, in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars to the applicable Borrower and (y) an account of such Borrower in the relevant jurisdiction and designated by such Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request, in the case of Loans denominated in a Foreign Currency or to a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower; provided that ABR Revolving
72


Loans made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.06(e) shall be remitted by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Issuing Bank.
(b)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the relevant Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and such Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, 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 (including without limitation the Overnight Foreign Currency Rate in the case of Loans denominated in a Foreign Currency) or (ii) in the case of such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to ABR Loans. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing.
SECTION 2.08.Interest Elections. (a) Each Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request. Thereafter, the relevant Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section. A Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing. This Section shall not apply to Swingline Borrowings, which may not be converted or continued.
(b)To make an election pursuant to this Section, a Borrower, or the Company on its behalf, shall notify the Administrative Agent of such election (by telephone or irrevocable written notice in the case of a Borrowing denominated in Dollars or Canadian Dollars or by irrevocable written notice (via an Interest Election Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by such Borrower, or the Company on its behalf) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency other than Canadian Dollars) by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if such Borrower were requesting a Borrowing of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election. Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or facsimile to the Administrative Agent of a written Interest Election Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by the relevant Borrower, or the Company on its behalf. Notwithstanding any contrary provision herein, this Section shall not be construed to permit any Borrower to (i) change the currency of any Borrowing, (ii) elect an Interest Period for Eurocurrency Loans, LIBOR Market Rate Loans or BA Equivalent Loans that does not comply with Section 2.02(d), (iii) convert any Borrowing to a Borrowing of a Type not available under the Class of Commitments pursuant to which such Borrowing was made or (vi) convert any Canadian Revolving Borrowing to a Type other than a Canadian Base Rate Borrowing or a BA Equivalent Borrowing.
73


(c)Each telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)the name of the applicable Borrower and the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
(ii)the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)whether such Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing, a LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing and, if such Borrowing is a Revolving Borrowing, whether such Borrowing is to be a Dollar Tranche Revolving Borrowing or Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Borrowing (and, in the case of a Canadian Revolving Borrowing, a Canadian Base Rate Borrowing or a BA Equivalent Borrowing);
(iv)if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurocurrency Borrowing or a LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing, the Interest Period and Agreed Currency to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which Interest Period shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”; and
(v)if the resulting Borrowing is a BA Equivalent Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which Interest Period shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”.
If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.
(d)Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
(e)If the relevant Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period (i) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in Dollars borrowed by the Company, such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing, (ii) in the case of a Canadian Revolving Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be converted to a Canadian Base Rate Borrowing and (iii) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency other than Canadian Dollars (or in Dollars by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) in respect of which the applicable Borrower shall have failed to deliver an Interest Election Request prior to the third (3rd) Business Day preceding the end of such Interest Period, such Borrowing shall automatically continue as a Eurocurrency Borrowing in the same Agreed Currency with an Interest Period of one month unless such Eurocurrency Borrowing is or was repaid in accordance with Section 2.11. Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the Company, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Borrowing borrowed by the Company may be converted to or continued as a Eurocurrency Borrowing or BA
74


Equivalent Borrowing, (ii) unless repaid, each Eurocurrency Borrowing (other than a Eurocurrency Borrowing in a Foreign Currency) borrowed by the Company shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (iii) unless repaid, each BA Equivalent Revolving Borrowing borrowed by a Canadian Borrower shall be converted to an Canadian Base Rate Borrowing and (iii) unless repaid, each Eurocurrency Borrowing by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower and each Eurocurrency Borrowing in a Foreign Currency shall automatically be continued as a Eurocurrency Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month.
SECTION 2.10.Termination and Reduction of Commitments. (a) Unless previously terminated, (i) the Additional Term Loan Commitments shall terminate at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Restatement Effective Date if the Company fails to meet the conditions precedent in Section 4.01 and in Section 4 of the Amendment and Restatement Agreement by such time or, if earlier, immediately after they are fully funded and (ii) all other Commitments shall terminate on the Maturity Date.
(b)The Company may at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Commitments of any Class; provided that (i) each reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and not less than $5,000,000, (ii) the Company shall not terminate or reduce the Dollar Tranche Commitments if, after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.11, the Dollar Amount of the sum of the total Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures would exceed the aggregate Dollar Tranche Commitments and (iii) the Company shall not terminate or reduce the Multicurrency Tranche Commitments if, after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.11, the Dollar Amount of the sum of the total Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures would exceed the aggregate Multicurrency Tranche Commitments.
(c)The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments of any Class under paragraph (b) of this Section at least three (3) Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Company pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of the Commitments of any Class delivered by the Company may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied. Any termination or reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be permanent. Each reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be made ratably among the applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments of such Class.
SECTION 2.10.Repayment and Amortization of Loans; Evidence of Debt. (a) Each Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan made to such Borrower on the Maturity Date in the currency of such Loan and (ii) in the case of the Company, to the Swingline Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Swingline Loan on the earlier of the Maturity Date and the sixth (6th) Business Day after such Swingline Loan is made. With respect to the Term Loans, the Company shall repay the Term Loans then owing by the Company on the last day of (x) each of the first four fiscal quarters of the Company ending on or after March 31, 2019 in the aggregate principal amount equal to $2,187,500 for each such fiscal quarter and (y) each fiscal quarter of the Company ending
75


thereafter in the aggregate principal amount equal to $4,375,000 for each such fiscal quarter, in each case, as adjusted from time to time pursuant to Section 2.11(a). To the extent not previously repaid, all unpaid Term Loans then owing by the applicable Borrower shall be paid in full in the same currency of such Term Loan by such Borrower on the Maturity Date.
(b)Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of each Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan made by such Lender, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder.
(c)The Administrative Agent shall maintain accounts in which it shall record (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the Class, Agreed Currency and Type thereof and the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from each Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof.
(d)The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraph (b) or (c) of this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of any Borrower to repay the Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(e)Any Lender may request that Loans made by it to any Borrower be evidenced by a promissory note. In such event, the relevant Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to the order of such Lender (or, if requested by such Lender, to such Lender and its registered assigns) and in a form approved by the Administrative Agent. Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 9.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the order of the payee named therein (or, if any such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its registered assigns).
SECTION 2.11.Prepayment of Loans.
(a)Any Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing in whole or in part, subject to prior notice in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.11(a). The applicable Borrower, or the Company on behalf of the applicable Borrower, shall notify the Administrative Agent (and, in the case of prepayment of a Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender) by telephone (confirmed by facsimile) of any prepayment hereunder (i) in the case of prepayment of a Eurocurrency Revolving Borrowing or a BA Equivalent Revolving Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, three (3) Business Days (in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars or a BA Equivalent Borrowing) or four (4) Business Days (in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency other than Canadian Dollars), in each case before the date of prepayment, (ii) in the case of prepayment of an ABR Borrowing, a LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or a Canadian Base Rate Borrowing, but other than any Swingline Loan, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, one (1) Business Day before the date of prepayment or (iii) in the case of prepayment of a Swingline Loan, not later than 12:00 noon, Local time, on the date of prepayment. Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid; provided that, if a notice of prepayment is given in connection with a conditional notice of termination of the Commitments as contemplated by Section 2.09, then such notice
76


of prepayment may be revoked if such notice of termination is revoked in accordance with Section 2.09. Promptly following receipt of any such notice relating to a Borrowing, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Borrowing of the same Type as provided in Section 2.02.

(c)In the event and on each occasion that any Net Cash Proceeds are received by or on behalf of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in respect of any Asset Sale or Recovery Event, the Company shall, immediately after such Net Cash Proceeds are received, prepay the Obligations as set forth in Section 2.11(d) below in an aggregate amount equal to 100% of such Net Cash Proceeds; provided that if the Company shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of a Responsible Officer to the effect that the Company or its relevant Subsidiaries intend to apply or have applied the Net Cash Proceeds from such event (or a portion thereof specified in such certificate), within twelve (12) months after receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds, to acquire (or replace or rebuild) real property, equipment or other tangible assets (including inventory) to be used in the business of the Company and/or its Subsidiaries (a “Reinvestment”), and certifying that no Default has occurred and is continuing, then no prepayment shall be required pursuant to this paragraph in respect of the Net Cash Proceeds specified in such certificate; provided that to the extent of any such Net Cash Proceeds therefrom that have not been so applied by the end of such twelve (12) month period, at which time a prepayment shall be required in an amount equal to such Net Cash Proceeds that have not been so applied; provided, further that the Company shall not be required to make any prepayments during any fiscal year pursuant to this Section 2.11(c) to the extent the aggregate amount of Net Cash Proceeds received for all Asset Sales and Recovery Events in such fiscal year that was not applied to a Reinvestment does not exceed $125,000,000 (and only such amounts in excess of $125,000,000 shall be subject to this mandatory prepayment or Reinvestment).
(d)All such amounts pursuant to Section 2.11(c) shall be applied to prepay the Term Loans on a pro rata basis based on the remaining outstanding principal amount of installments thereon.

(a) The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender a commitment fee, which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate on the daily amount of the Available Revolving Commitment of such Lender during the period from and including the Original Effective Date to but excluding the date on which such Commitment terminates; provided that, if such Lender continues to have any Revolving Credit Exposure after its Revolving Commitment terminates, then such commitment fee shall continue to accrue on the daily amount of such Lender’s Revolving Credit Exposure from and including the date on which its Revolving Commitment terminates to but excluding the date on which such Lender ceases to have any Revolving Credit Exposure. Accrued commitment fees shall be payable in arrears on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year and on the date on which the Revolving Commitments terminate, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Original Effective Date.

(b)The Company agrees to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender a participation fee with respect to its participations in Letters of Credit, which shall accrue at the same Applicable Rate used to determine the interest rate applicable to Eurocurrency Revolving Loans on the average daily Dollar Amount of such Lender’s LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the period from and including the Original Effective Date to but excluding the later of the date on which such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitment terminates and the date on which such Lender ceases to have any LC Exposure and (ii) to each Issuing Bank for its own account a fronting fee, which shall accrue at the rate of 0.125% per annum on the average daily Dollar Amount of the LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) attributable to Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank during the period from and including the Original Effective Date to but excluding the later of the date of termination of the Revolving Commitments and the date on which there ceases to be any LC Exposure, as well as such Issuing Bank’s standard fees and commissions with respect to the issuance, amendment, cancellation, negotiation, transfer, presentment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or processing of drawings thereunder. Unless otherwise specified above, participation fees and fronting fees accrued through and including the last day of March, June, September and December of each year shall be payable on the third (3rd) Business Day following such last day, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Original Effective Date; provided that all such fees shall be payable on the date on which the Revolving Commitments terminate and any such fees accruing after the date on which the Revolving Commitments terminate shall be payable on demand. Any other fees payable to the Issuing Banks pursuant to this paragraph shall be payable within ten (10) days after demand.

SECTION 2.13.Interest. (a) The Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing (including each Swingline Loan denominated in Dollars) shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate. The Loans comprising each LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing (including each Swingline Loan denominated in Pounds Sterling or euro) shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the sum of the LIBOR Market Rate plus the Applicable Rate. The Canadian Revolving Loans comprising each Canadian Base Rate Borrowing shall bear interest at the Canadian Prime Rate plus the Applicable Rate.
(b)The Loans comprising each Eurocurrency Borrowing shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate. The Canadian Revolving Loans comprising each BA Equivalent Borrowing shall bear interest at the BA Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.
(c)Notwithstanding the foregoing, during the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders may, at their option, by notice to the Company (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 9.02 requiring the consent of “each Lender directly affected thereby” for reductions in interest rates), declare that (i) all Loans shall bear interest at 2% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loans as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section or (ii) in the case of any other amount outstanding hereunder, such amount shall accrue at 2% plus the rate applicable to such fee or other obligation as provided hereunder.
(d)Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan and, in the case of Revolving Loans, upon termination of the Revolving Commitments; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Revolving Loan or Canadian Base Rate Loan prior to the end of the Availability Period), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.
(e)All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that interest (i) computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), (ii) for Borrowings denominated in Pounds Sterling shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days, and (iii) for Canadian Revolving Borrowings shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable Alternate Base Rate, Adjusted LIBO Rate, LIBO Rate, LIBOR Market Index Rate or BA Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
SECTION 2.14.Alternate Rate of Interest; Laws Affecting Availability. (a) Unless and until a Replacement Rate is implemented in accordance with clause (c) below, if prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or a BA Equivalent Borrowing:
(i)the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining (x) in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for
79


such Interest Period and currency, (y) in the case of a LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing, the LIBOR Market Index Rate for such currency or (z) in the case of a BA Equivalent Borrowing, the BA Rate for such Interest Period;
(ii)the Administrative Agent is advised by a Majority in Interest of the Lenders of any Class that the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the LIBO Rate, the LIBOR Market Index Rate or BA Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period and currency will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period and currency;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the applicable Borrower and the Lenders by telephone or facsimile as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the applicable Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (A) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing, as applicable, shall be ineffective and any such Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing, as applicable, shall be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto, (B) any Eurocurrency Borrowing by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or BA Equivalent Borrowing by a Canadian Borrower, as applicable, that is requested to be continued shall be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto, (C) if any Borrowing Request by the Company requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing or a LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing in Dollars or a BA Equivalent Borrowing, as applicable, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing or a Canadian Base Rate Borrowing, as applicable (and if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurocurrency Revolving Borrowing by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or denominated in a Foreign Currency (other than Canadian Dollars), such Borrowing Request shall be ineffective); provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type of Borrowings, then the other Type of Borrowings shall be permitted.
(b)If, after the date hereof, any Change in Law shall make it unlawful or impossible for any of the Lenders (or any of their respective lending offices) to honor its obligations hereunder to make or maintain any Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or a BA Equivalent Borrowing (any such Lender being referred to as an “Affected Lender”), then such Affected Lender shall promptly give notice thereof to the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly give notice to the Company and the other Lenders. Commencing four (4) Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Company shall, upon demand from such Affected Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) and subject to the following sentence, convert all affected Eurocurrency Borrowings, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowings or BA Equivalent Borrowings, as applicable, of such Affected Lender to ABR Borrowings or Canadian Base Rate Borrowings, either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Affected Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Borrowing, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowing or BA Equivalent Borrowing, as applicable, to such day, or immediately, if such Affected Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Loans. Upon any such conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so converted. Commencing four (4) Business Days after receipt of such notice and thereafter, until such Affected Lender notifies the Administrative Agent (who shall promptly notify the Company) that such circumstances no longer exist, (i) any obligation of such Affected Lender to issue, make, maintain, fund or charge interest with respect to any such Credit Event or continue such affected Eurocurrency Borrowings, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowings or BA Equivalent Borrowings, as the case may be, or to convert ABR Borrowings or Canadian Base Rate Borrowings to such affected Eurocurrency Borrowings, LIBOR Market Rate Borrowings or BA Equivalent Borrowings, as the case may be, shall be suspended and (ii) if such notice
80


asserts the illegality of such Affected Lender making or maintaining ABR Borrowings or Canadian Base Rate Borrowings, as the case may be, the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate or to the CDOR Rate component of the Canadian Prime Rate, as the case may be, the interest rate on which ABR Borrowings or Canadian Base Rate Borrowings of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate or to the CDOR Rate component of the Canadian Prime Rate, as the case may be.
(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2.14(a) above, if the Administrative Agent has made the determination (such determination to be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances described in Section 2.14(a)(i) have arisen with respect to Eurocurrency Borrowings and that such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) any applicable interest rate specified herein is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in the U.S. syndicated loan market in the applicable currency or (iii) the applicable supervisor or administrator (if any) of any applicable interest rate specified herein or any Governmental Authority having or purporting to have jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which any applicable interest rate specified herein shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans in the U.S. syndicated loan market in the applicable currency, then the Administrative Agent may, to the extent practicable (with the consent of the Company and as determined by the Administrative Agent to be generally in accordance with similar situations in other transactions in which it is serving as administrative agent or otherwise consistent with market practice generally), establish a replacement interest rate (the “Replacement Rate”), in which case, the Replacement Rate shall, subject to the next two sentences, replace such applicable interest rate for all purposes under the Loan Documents unless and until (A) an event described in Section 2.14(a)(i) (with respect to Eurocurrency Borrowings), (c)(i), (c)(ii) or (c)(iii) occurs with respect to the Replacement Rate or (B) the Administrative Agent (or the Required Lenders through the Administrative Agent) notifies the Company that the Replacement Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding the Loans bearing interest at the Replacement Rate. In connection with the establishment and application of the Replacement Rate, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be amended solely with the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Company, as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.14(c). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents (including, without limitation, Section 9.02), (x) the Administrative Agent and the Company may, without the consent of any Lender or any other Borrower, enter into amendments or modifications to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or to enter into additional Loan Documents as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems appropriate in order to implement any Replacement Rate or otherwise effectuate the terms of Section 2.14(c) in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.14(c) and (y) such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Business Days of the delivery of such amendment to the Lenders, a written notice signed by Lenders constituting Required Lenders stating that such Lenders object to such amendment (which such notice shall note with specificity the particular provisions of the amendment to which such Lenders object). To the extent the Replacement Rate is approved by the Administrative Agent in connection with this clause (c), the Replacement Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that, in each case, to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent, such Replacement Rate shall be applied as otherwise reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent (it being understood that any such modification by the Administrative Agent shall not require the consent of, or consultation with, any of the Lenders).
SECTION 2.15.Increased Costs. (a)If any Change in Law shall:
81


(i)impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, liquidity, compulsory loan, insurance charge or other assessment or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate) or any Issuing Bank;
(ii)impose on any Lender or any Issuing Bank or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement or Eurocurrency Loans or BA Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein; or
(iii)subject any Recipient to any Taxes or UK Taxes on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Excluded Taxes, (C) Other Connection Taxes on gross or net income, profits or receipts (including value added or similar Taxes) and (D) UK Taxes consisting of a Tax Deduction required by law to be made by a Borrower or compensated for under any of the provisions of Section 2.17A));
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Person of making, continuing, converting into or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan (including, without limitation, pursuant to any conversion of any Borrowing denominated in an Agreed Currency into a Borrowing denominated in any other Agreed Currency) or to increase the cost to such Person of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (including, without limitation, pursuant to any conversion of any Borrowing denominated in an Agreed Currency into a Borrowing denominated in any other Agreed Currency) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Person hereunder, whether of principal, interest or otherwise (including, without limitation, pursuant to any conversion of any Borrowing denominated in an Agreed Currency into a Borrowing denominated in any other Agreed Currency), then the applicable Borrower will pay to such Person such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Person for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered (such compensation to be requested in good faith (and not on an arbitrary or capricious basis) and consistent with similarly situated customers of the applicable Lender after consideration of such factors as such Person then reasonably determines to be relevant).
(b)If any Lender or any Issuing Bank determines (which determination shall be made in good faith (and not on an arbitrary or capricious basis) and consistent with similarly situated customers of the applicable Lender after consideration of such factors as such Lender or such Issuing Bank then reasonably determines to be relevant) that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank, to a level below that which such Lender or such Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the applicable Borrower will pay to such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c)A certificate of a Lender or an Issuing Bank setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such Issuing Bank or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive
82


absent manifest error. The Company shall pay, or cause the other Borrowers to pay, such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.
(d)Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or any Issuing Bank to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Company shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 270 days prior to the date that such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, notifies the Company of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 270-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
(e)With respect to a Swiss Borrower, (i) the interest rates provided for in this Agreement are minimum interest rates, (ii) when entering into this Agreement, the parties have assumed that the interest payable at the rates set out in this Agreement is not and will not become subject to the Swiss Withholding Tax, (iii) notwithstanding that the parties do not anticipate that any payment of interest will be subject to the Swiss Withholding Tax, they agree that, in the event that the Swiss Withholding Tax should be imposed on interest payments, the payment of interest due by a Swiss Borrower shall be increased to an amount which (after making any deduction of the Non-Refundable Portion (as defined below) of the Swiss Withholding Tax) results in a payment to the respective Lender of an amount equal to the payment which would have been due had no deduction of Swiss Withholding Tax been required, (iv) for this purpose, the Swiss Withholding Tax shall be calculated on the full grossed-up interest amount (for the purposes of this Section, “Non-Refundable Portion” shall mean Swiss Withholding Tax at the standard rate (being, as at the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date, 35%) unless in relation to the relevant Lender based on an applicable double tax treaty (or based on Swiss domestic tax laws), the Non-Refundable Portion is a specified lower rate in which case such lower rate shall be applied in relation to the respective Lender), and (v) such Swiss Borrower and each relevant Lender shall cooperate and use commercially reasonable efforts to provide to the Administrative Agent the documents required by law or applicable double taxation treaties for the respective Lender to claim a refund of any Swiss Withholding Tax so deducted. If and to the extent a Lender receives a refund of Swiss Withholding Tax, it shall forward such amount, after deduction of costs, to the applicable Swiss Borrower.
SECTION 2.16.Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurocurrency Loan or BA Equivalent Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default or as a result of any prepayment pursuant to Section 2.11), (b) the conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan or BA Equivalent Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto (other than as a result of Section 2.14(b)), (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurocurrency Loan or BA Equivalent Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice may be revoked under Section 2.11(a) and is revoked in accordance therewith, but excluding as a result of Section 2.14(b)) or (d) the assignment of any Eurocurrency Loan or BA Equivalent Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Company pursuant to Section 2.19 or the CAM Exchange, then, in any such event, the Borrowers shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event. Such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at
83


the Adjusted LIBO Rate or BA Equivalent Rate, as applicable, that would have been applicable to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest 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 deposits in the relevant currency of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the eurocurrency market or (with respect to BA Equivalent Loans) the Canadian bank market. A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the applicable Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The applicable Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.
SECTION 2.17.Taxes. (a) Withholding of Taxes; Gross-Up. Each payment by any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made without withholding for any Taxes, unless such withholding is required by applicable law. If any Withholding Agent determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it is so required to withhold Taxes, then such Withholding Agent may so withhold and shall timely pay the full amount of withheld Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law. If such Taxes are Indemnified Taxes, then the amount payable by such Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that, net of such withholding (including such withholding applicable to additional amounts payable under this Section), the applicable Recipient receives the amount it would have received had no such withholding been made.
(b)Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrowers. The relevant Borrower shall timely pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(c)Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(d)Indemnification by the Borrowers. The relevant Borrower shall indemnify each Recipient for any Indemnified Taxes that are paid or payable by such Recipient in connection with any Loan Document (including amounts paid or payable under this Section 2.17(d)) 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. The indemnity under this Section 2.17(d) shall be paid within ten (10) days after the Recipient delivers to the relevant Borrower a certificate stating the amount of any Indemnified Taxes so paid or payable by such Recipient and describing the basis for the indemnification claim. Such certificate shall be conclusive of the amount so paid or payable absent manifest error. Such Recipient shall deliver a copy of such certificate to the Administrative Agent.
(e)Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent for any Taxes (but, in the case of any Indemnified Taxes, only to the extent that any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Loan Parties to do so) attributable to such Lender that are paid or payable by the Administrative Agent or the applicable Loan Party (as applicable) in connection with any Loan Document and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. The
84


indemnity under this Section 2.17(e) shall be paid within ten (10) days after the Administrative Agent delivers to the applicable Lender a certificate stating the amount of Taxes so paid or payable by the Administrative Agent. Such certificate shall be conclusive of the amount so paid or payable absent manifest error.
(f)Status of Lenders. (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from, or reduction of, any applicable withholding Tax with respect to any payments under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without, or at a reduced rate of, withholding. In addition, any Lender, if requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by law or reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to any withholding (including backup withholding) or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.17(f)(ii)(A) through (E) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender. Upon the reasonable request of any Borrower or the Administrative Agent, any Lender shall update any form or certification previously delivered pursuant to this Section 2.17(f). If any form or certification previously delivered pursuant to this Section expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect with respect to a Lender, such Lender shall promptly (and in any event within ten (10)��days after such expiration, obsolescence or inaccuracy) notify the Company and the Administrative Agent in writing of such expiration, obsolescence or inaccuracy and update the form or certification if it is legally eligible to do so.
(ii)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if any Borrower is a U.S. Person, any Lender with respect to such Borrower shall, if it is legally eligible to do so, deliver to such Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies reasonably requested by such Borrower and the Administrative Agent) on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a party hereto, duly completed and executed copies of whichever of the following is applicable:
(A)in the case of a Lender that is a U.S. Person, IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. Federal backup withholding tax;
(B)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (1) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (2) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
(C)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender for whom payments under any Loan Document constitute income that is effectively connected with such Lender’s conduct of a trade or business in the United States, IRS Form W-8ECI;

(D)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code both (1) IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable and (2) a certificate substantially in the relevant form of Exhibit G-1, G-2, G-3 or G-4, as applicable (a “U.S. Tax Certificate”), to the effect that such Lender is not (a) a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (b) a “10 percent shareholder” of such Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, (c) a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code and (d) conducting a trade or business in the United States with which the relevant interest payments are effectively connected;
(E)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender that is not the beneficial owner of payments made under this Agreement (including a partnership or a participating Lender) (1) an IRS Form W-8IMY on behalf of itself and (2) the relevant forms prescribed in clauses (A), (B), (C), (D) and (F) of this paragraph (f)(ii) that would be required of each such beneficial owner or partner of such partnership if such beneficial owner or partner were a Lender; provided, however, that if the Lender is a partnership and one or more of its partners are claiming the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, such Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Certificate on behalf of such partners; or
(F)any other form prescribed by law as a basis for claiming exemption from, or a reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax together with such supplementary documentation necessary to enable such Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the amount of Tax (if any) required by law to be withheld.
(iii)If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Withholding Agent, at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Withholding Agent, such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Withholding Agent as may be necessary for the Withholding Agent to comply with its obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Lender has or has not complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA and, as necessary, to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 2.17(f)(iii), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Original Effective Date.
(g)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 2.17 (including additional amounts paid pursuant to this Section 2.17), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including any Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid to such indemnified party pursuant to the previous sentence (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.17(g), in no event will any indemnified party be required to pay any amount to any indemnifying party pursuant
86


to this Section 2.17(g) if such payment would place such indemnified party in a less favorable position (on a net after-Tax basis) than such indemnified party would have been in if the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This Section 2.17(g) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(h)Defined Terms. For purposes of Section 2.17, the term “Lender” includes the Issuing Banks and the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.
(i)FATCA. For purposes of determining withholding Taxes imposed under the FATCA, from and after the November 14, 2014, the Company and the Administrative Agent shall treat (and the Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to treat) this Agreement as not qualifying as a “grandfathered obligation” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1471-2(b)(2)(i).
SECTION 2.17A. UK Tax.
(a)Unless a contrary indication appears, in this Section 2.17A a reference to “determines” or “determined” means a determination made in the absolute discretion of the person making the determination.
(b)A Borrower shall make all payments to be made by it under a Loan Document without any Tax Deduction, unless a Tax Deduction is required by law.
(c)A Borrower shall promptly upon becoming aware that it must make a Tax Deduction (or that there is any change in the rate or the basis of a Tax Deduction) notify the Administrative Agent accordingly. Similarly, a Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent on becoming so aware in respect of a payment payable to that Lender. If the Administrative Agent receives such notification from a Lender it shall notify the relevant Borrower.
(d)If a Tax Deduction is required by law to be made by a Borrower under any Loan Document, the amount of the payment due from a Borrower shall be increased to an amount which (after making any Tax Deduction) leaves an amount equal to the payment which would have been due if no Tax Deduction had been required.
(e)A Borrower is not required to make an increased payment to a Lender under clause (d) above for a Tax Deduction in respect of tax imposed by the United Kingdom from a payment of interest on a Loan, if on the date on which the payment falls due:
(i)the payment could have been made to the relevant Lender without a Tax Deduction if it was a Qualifying Lender, but on that date that Lender is not or has ceased to be a Qualifying Lender other than as a result of any change after the date it became a Lender under this Agreement in (or in the interpretation, administration, or application of) any law or any published practice or concession of any relevant taxing authority; or
(ii)the relevant Lender is a Qualifying Lender solely under sub-paragraph (i)(b) of the definition of Qualifying Lender and:
(A)an officer of H.M. Revenue & Customs has given (and not revoked) a direction (a “Direction”) under section 931 of the ITA which relates to that payment and that Lender has received from a Borrower a certified copy of that Direction; and
87


(B)the payment could have been made to the Lender without any Tax Deduction if that Direction had not been made; or
(iii)the relevant Lender is a Qualifying Lender solely by virtue of paragraph (i)(B) of the definition of Qualifying Lender and:
(A)the relevant Lender has not given a Tax Confirmation to the Company; and
(B)the payment could have been made to the Lender without any Tax Deduction if the Lender had given a Tax Confirmation to the Company, on the basis that the Tax Confirmation would have enabled the Company to have formed a reasonable belief that the payment was an “excepted payment” for the purpose of section 930 of the ITA; or
(iv)the relevant Lender is a Treaty Lender and a Borrower is able to demonstrate that the payment could have been made to the Lender without the Tax Deduction had that Lender complied with its obligations under clause (h) below.
(f)If a Borrower is required to make a Tax Deduction, such Borrower shall make that Tax Deduction and any payment required in connection with that Tax Deduction within the time allowed and in the minimum amount required by law.
(g)Within 30 days of making either a Tax Deduction or any payment required in connection with that Tax Deduction, a Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent for the Lender entitled to the payment a statement under section 975 of the ITA or other evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Lender that the Tax Deduction has been made or (as applicable) any appropriate payment paid to the relevant taxing authority.
(h)(i) Subject to paragraph (ii) below, a Treaty Lender and a Borrower which makes a payment to which that Treaty Lender is entitled shall co-operate in completing any procedural formalities necessary for that Borrower to obtain authorisation to make that payment without a Tax Deduction.
(i)Nothing in paragraph (i) above shall require a Treaty Lender to:
(A)register under the HMRC DT Treaty Passport scheme;
(B)apply the HMRC DT Treaty Passport scheme to any Loan if it has so registered; or
(C)file Treaty forms if it has included an indication to the effect that it wishes the HMRC DT Treaty Passport scheme to apply to this Agreement in accordance with paragraph (i) below and the Borrower making that payment has not complied with its obligations under paragraph (j) below.
(i)A Treaty Lender which holds a passport under the HMRC DT Treaty Passport scheme, and which wishes that scheme to apply to this Agreement, shall provide an indication to that effect by notifying the Borrower of its scheme reference number and its jurisdiction of tax residence (and, in the case of a Treaty Lender that is a party to this Agreement on the Restatement Effective Date, it may
88


provide such notification by including such details on its signature page to the Amendment and Restatement Agreement.
(j)Where a Lender includes the indication described in paragraph (i) above the relevant Borrower shall file a duly completed form DTTP2 in respect of such Lender with HM Revenue & Customs, within 30 days of the date such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement or, within 30 days of the date such Borrower becomes a Borrower under this Agreement (as the case may be), and shall promptly provide the Lender with a copy of that filing.
(k)A Borrower shall (within 3 Business Days of demand by the Administrative Agent) pay to a Protected Party an amount equal to the loss, liability or cost which that Protected Party determines will be or has been (directly or indirectly) suffered for or on account of UK Tax by that Protected Party in respect of any Loan Document.
(l)Clause (k) above shall not apply with respect to any UK Tax assessed on a Protected Party:
(i)under the law of the jurisdiction in which that Protected Party is incorporated or, if different, the jurisdiction (or jurisdictions) in which that Protected Party is treated as resident for tax purposes; or
(ii)under the law of the jurisdiction in which that Protected Party’s facility office is located in respect of amounts received or receivable in that jurisdiction,
if that UK Tax is imposed on or calculated by reference to the net income received or receivable (but not any sum deemed to be received or receivable) by that Protected Party.
(m)Furthermore, clause (k) above shall not apply to the extent a loss, liability or cost:
(i)is compensated for by an increased payment under clause (d) above; or
(ii)would have been compensated for by an increased payment under clause (d) above but was not so compensated solely because one of the exclusions in clause (e) applied.
(n)A Protected Party making, or intending to make a claim under clause (k) above shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent of the event which will give, or has given, rise to the claim, following which the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower.
(o)A Protected Party shall, on receiving a payment from a Borrower under clause (i) above, notify the Administrative Agent.
(p)If a Borrower makes a Tax Payment and the relevant Lender determines that:
(i)a Tax Credit is attributable either to an increased payment of which that Tax Payment forms part or to that Tax Payment; and
(ii)that Lender has obtained, utilized and retained that Tax Credit,
89


the relevant Lender shall pay an amount to that Borrower which that Lender determines will leave it (after that payment) in the same after-tax position as it would have been in had the Tax Payment not been made by that Borrower.
(q)A Borrower shall pay and, within three (3) Business Days of demand, indemnify each Credit Party against any cost, loss or liability that Credit Party incurs in relation to all stamp duty, registration and other similar UK Taxes payable in respect of any Loan Document (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any such UK Tax arising in connection with an assignment or transfer by that Credit Party of its rights under any Loan Document).
This Section 2.17A shall be deemed to constitute an integral part of Section 2.17.
SECTION 2.17B. VAT.
(a)All amounts set out, or expressed to be payable under a Loan Document by any party to a Credit Party which (in whole or part) constitute the consideration for a supply or supplies for VAT purposes shall be deemed to be exclusive of any VAT which is chargeable on such supply or supplies, and accordingly, subject to clause (b) below, if VAT is or becomes chargeable on any supply made by any Credit Party to any party under a Loan Document and such Credit Party is required to account to the relevant tax authority for the VAT, that party shall pay to the Credit Party (in addition to and at the same time as paying the consideration for such supply) an amount equal to the amount of such VAT (and such Credit Party shall promptly provide an appropriate VAT invoice to such party).
(b)If VAT is or becomes chargeable on any supply made by any Credit Party (the “Supplier”) to any other Credit Party (the “Recipient”) under a Loan Document, and any party other than the Recipient (the “Subject Party”) is required by the terms of any Loan Document to pay an amount equal to the consideration for such supply to the Supplier (rather than being required to reimburse the Recipient in respect of that consideration), such party shall also pay to the Supplier (in addition to and at the same time as paying such amount) an amount equal to the amount of such VAT. The Recipient will promptly pay to the Subject Party an amount equal to any credit or repayment obtained by the Recipient from the relevant tax authority which the Recipient reasonably determines is in respect of such VAT.
(c)Where a Loan Document requires any party to reimburse a Credit Party for any costs or expenses, that party shall also at the same time pay and indemnify the Credit Party against all VAT incurred by the Credit Party in respect of the costs or expenses to the extent that the Credit Party reasonably determines that neither it nor any other member of any group of which it is a member for VAT purposes is entitled to credit or repayment from the relevant tax authority in respect of the VAT.
(d)Any reference in this Section 2.17B to any party shall, at any time when such party is treated as a member of a group for VAT purposes, include (where appropriate and unless the context otherwise requires) a reference to the representative member or “parent” of such group at such time (the term “representative member” and “parent” to have the same meaning as in the relevant legislation of any jurisdiction having implemented Council Directive 2006/112/EC on the common system of value added tax.
(e)In relation to any supply made by a Credit Party under a Loan Document if reasonably requested by such Credit Party, the party receiving the supply must promptly provide such Credit Party with details of that party’s VAT registration and such other information is reasonably requested in connection with such Credit Party’s VAT reporting requirements in relation to such supply.
90


This Section 2.17B shall be deemed to constitute an integral part of Section 2.17.
SECTION 2.17C. Certain Swiss Tax Matters.
(a)A payment to a specific Lender shall not be increased under Section 2.17 or under Section 2.15(e), if on the date on which the payment falls due the payment could have been made to the relevant Lender without a deduction of Swiss Withholding Tax if the Swiss Non-Bank Rules would not have been violated if:
(i)such Lender had been a Qualifying Bank, but on that date that Lender is not or has ceased to be a Qualifying Bank (other than as a result of any change after the date it became a Lender under this Agreement in (or in the interpretation, administration, or application of) any law, treaty or any published practice of any relevant taxing authority); or
(ii)such Lender had complied with its obligations in accordance with Section 9.04(b)(ii)(G); or
(iii)such Lender, in relation to which a Swiss Borrower makes the payment, became a Lender as a result of such breach of Section 9.04(b)(ii)(G);
(iv)the representations of the Lenders included in this Section 2.17C would be accurate; or
(v)in case the Lenders have been indemnified under another provision of this Agreement.
(b)Each Swiss Borrower represents to the Lenders on the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date that it is compliant with the Swiss Non-Bank Rules; it being understood that for the purpose of this representation, each Swiss Borrower has assumed that the aggregate number of Lenders under this Agreement which are Non-Qualifying Banks is ten (10) (irrespective of whether or not there are, at any time, any such Lenders).
(c)Each Swiss Borrower undertakes to the Lenders that it shall be compliant with the Swiss Non-Bank Rules; it being understood that each Swiss Borrower shall assume that the aggregate number of Lenders under this Agreement which are Non-Qualifying Banks is ten (10) (irrespective of whether or not there are, at any time, any such Lenders).
(d)Each Lender confirms on the Amendment No. 5 Effective Date that it is a Qualifying Bank and it did not enter into any arrangement with another Person which is a Non-Qualifying Bank under which such Lender substantially transferred its exposure under this Agreement to a Participant unless under such arrangement and at all times while such arrangement is in effect (i) the relationship between such Lender and the applicable Participant is that of a debtor and creditor (including in the bankruptcy or similar event of such Lender or any Borrower), (ii) the applicable Participant has no proprietary interest in the benefit of this Agreement or in any monies received by such Lender under or in relation to this Agreement and (iii) the applicable Participant will under no circumstances (x) be subrogated to, or substituted in respect of, such Lender’s claims under this Agreement or (y) have otherwise any contractual relationship with, or rights against, any Borrower under, or in relation to, this Agreement.
91


(e)Any Lender which becomes a party to this Agreement in accordance with Section 2.20 or Section 9.04 after the date of Amendment No. 5 Effective Date represents and warrants in its applicable Augmentation Lender Supplement in the form of Exhibit D or in its applicable Assignment and Assumption, as the case may be, which it executes on becoming a Lender, that it is (i) a Qualifying Bank or (ii) a Non-Qualifying Bank qualifying as one Lender only for purposes of the Swiss Non-Bank Rules and that each Swiss Borrower has confirmed that by becoming a Lender the Swiss Non-Bank Rules will still be complied with, unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing. If such Lender fails to indicate its status in accordance with this paragraph such Lender shall be treated for the purposes of this Agreement as if it is a Non-Qualifying Bank.
SECTION 2.18.Payments Generally; Allocations of Proceeds; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs.
(a)Each Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of LC Disbursements, or of amounts payable under Section 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.17A or 2.17B, or otherwise) prior to (i) in the case of payments denominated in Dollars by the Company, 12:00 noon, New York City time, (ii) in the case of payments denominated in Canadian Dollars, 12:00 noon, Eastern time, in the city of the Administrative Agent’s Applicable Payment Office for Canadian Dollars and (iii) in the case of payments denominated in a Foreign Currency (other than Canadian Dollars) or by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, 12:00 noon, Local Time, in the city of the Administrative Agent’s Applicable Payment Office for such currency, in each case on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made (i) in the same currency in which the applicable Credit Event was made (or where such currency has been converted to euro, in euro) and (ii) to the Administrative Agent at its offices at 10 South Dearborn Street, Chicago, Illinois 60603 or, in the case of a Credit Event denominated in a Foreign Currency or to a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, the Administrative Agent’s Applicable Payment Office for such currency, except payments to be made directly to the Issuing Banks or Swingline Lender as expressly provided herein and except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.17A, 2.17B and 9.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments denominated in the same currency received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, if, after the making of any Credit Event in any Foreign Currency, currency control or exchange regulations are imposed in the country which issues such currency with the result that the type of currency in which the Credit Event was made (the “Original Currency”) no longer exists or any Borrower is not able to make payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders in such Original Currency, then all payments to be made by such Borrower hereunder in such currency shall instead be made when due in Dollars in an amount equal to the Dollar Amount (as of the date of repayment) of such payment due, it being the intention of the parties hereto that the Borrowers take all risks of the imposition of any such currency control or exchange regulations.
(b)Any proceeds of Collateral, or any other proceeds of any payment by any Borrower or any other Loan Party, received by the Administrative Agent (i) not constituting (A) a specific payment of principal, interest, fees or other sum payable under the Loan Documents (which shall be applied as specified by the Company) or (B) a mandatory prepayment (which shall be applied in
92


accordance with Section 2.11) or (ii) after an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent so elects or the Required Lenders so direct, such funds shall be applied ratably first, to pay any fees, indemnities, or expense reimbursements including amounts then due to the Administrative Agent and any Issuing Bank from any Borrower, second, to pay any fees or expense reimbursements then due to the Lenders from any Borrower, third, to pay interest then due and payable on the Loans ratably, fourth, to prepay principal on the Loans and unreimbursed LC Disbursements and any other amounts owing with respect to Banking Services Obligations and Swap Obligations ratably, fifth, to pay an amount to the Administrative Agent equal to one hundred five percent (105%) of the aggregate undrawn face amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit and the aggregate amount of any unpaid LC Disbursements, to be held as cash collateral for such Obligations and sixth, to the payment of any other Secured Obligation due to the Administrative Agent or any Lender by any Borrower. Notwithstanding the foregoing, amounts received from any Loan Party shall not be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligation of such Loan Party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, unless so directed by the Company, or unless a Default is in existence, none of the Administrative Agent or any Lender shall apply any payment which it receives to any Eurocurrency Loan, LIBOR Market Rate Loan or BA Equivalent Loan, except (a) on the expiration date of the Interest Period applicable to any such Eurocurrency Loan, LIBOR Market Rate Loan or BA Equivalent Loan, as applicable or (b) in the event, and only to the extent, that there are no outstanding ABR Loans of the same Class or Canadian Base Rate Loan, as applicable, and, in any event, the Borrowers shall pay the break funding payment required in accordance with Section 2.16. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have the continuing and exclusive right to apply and reverse and reapply any and all such proceeds and payments to any portion of the Secured Obligations.
(c)At the election of the Administrative Agent, all payments of principal, interest, LC Disbursements, fees, premiums, reimbursable expenses (including, without limitation, all reimbursement for fees and expenses pursuant to Section 9.03), and other sums payable by a Borrower under the Loan Documents, may be paid from the proceeds of Borrowings made by such Borrower hereunder whether made following a request by such Borrower (or the Company on behalf of such Borrower) pursuant to Section 2.03 or a deemed request by such Borrower as provided in this Section or may be deducted from any deposit account of such Borrower maintained with the Administrative Agent. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes (i) the Administrative Agent to make a Borrowing by such Borrower for the purpose of paying each payment of principal, interest and fees owed by such Borrower as it becomes due hereunder or any other amount due under the Loan Documents and agrees that all such amounts charged shall constitute Loans (including Swingline Loans) of such Borrower and that all such Borrowings by such Borrower shall be deemed to have been requested pursuant to Sections 2.03, 2.04 or 2.05, as applicable and (ii) the Administrative Agent to charge any deposit account of the relevant Borrower maintained with the Administrative Agent for each payment of principal, interest and fees owed by such Borrower as it becomes due hereunder or any other amount due under the Loan Documents.
(d)If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans and accrued interest thereon than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans; provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the
93


payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by any Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to the Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply). Each Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against such Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Borrower in the amount of such participation.
(e)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the relevant Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or the Issuing Banks hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders or the Issuing Banks, as the case may be, the amount due. In such event, if such Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders or the Issuing Banks, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or such Issuing Bank with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation (including without limitation the Overnight Foreign Currency Rate in the case of Loans denominated in a Foreign Currency).
(f)If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.05(c), 2.06(d) or (e), 2.07(b), 2.18(e) or 9.03(c), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender and for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender or the Issuing Banks to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender under such Sections; in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.
SECTION 2.19.Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15, or if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, 2.17A or 2.17B, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.15, 2.17, 2.17A or 2.17B, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Company hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(b)If (i) any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15, (ii) any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of
94


any Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, 2.17A or 2.17B, (iii) any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender or (iv) any Lender shall deliver notice to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.24(b)(i) that it shall be unlawful for such Lender to perform its obligations hereunder or to fund or maintain any participation or any Loan to any Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or Eligible Foreign Subsidiary, then the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under the Loan Documents to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) the Company shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent (and if a Revolving Commitment is being assigned, the Issuing Banks and the Swingline Lender), which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld, (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Company (in the case of all other amounts) and (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.15 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.17, 2.17A or 2.17B, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.
SECTION 2.20.Expansion Option. The Borrowers may from time to time (other than during the Covenant Relief Period) elect to increase (an “Incremental Increase”) the total Dollar Tranche Commitments or the total Multicurrency Tranche Commitments or enter into one or more tranches of term loans (each an “Incremental Term Loan”), in each case in minimum increments of $10,000,000 so long as, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate amount of such increases and all such Incremental Term Loans (other than the Incremental US Term Loans) plus the aggregate principal amount of all Incremental Equivalent Debt incurred on or prior to such date does not exceed the Incremental Amount then in effect. The Borrowers may arrange for any such increase or tranche to be provided by one or more Lenders (each Lender so agreeing to an increase in its Revolving Commitment, or to participate in such Incremental Term Loans, an “Increasing Lender”), or by one or more new banks, financial institutions or other entities (each such new bank, financial institution or other entity that constitutes a Qualifying Bank, an “Augmenting Lender”), other than an Ineligible Institution, to increase their existing Revolving Commitments, or to participate in such Incremental Term Loans, or extend Revolving Commitments, as the case may be; provided that (i) each Augmenting Lender, shall be subject to the approval of the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks (in the case of an increase in the Revolving Commitments) and the Swingline Lender (in the case of an increase in the Revolving Commitments), (ii) no Augmenting Lender shall be the Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company and (iii) (x) in the case of an Increasing Lender, the applicable Borrower and such Increasing Lender execute an agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit C hereto, and (y) in the case of an Augmenting Lender, the applicable Borrower and such Augmenting Lender execute an agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit D hereto. No consent of any Lender (other than the Lenders participating in the increase or any Incremental Term Loan) shall be required for any increase in Revolving Commitments or Incremental Term Loan pursuant to this Section 2.20. Increases and new Revolving Commitments and Incremental Term Loans created pursuant to this Section 2.20 shall become effective on the date agreed by the applicable Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the relevant Increasing Lenders or Augmenting Lenders, and the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no increase in the Revolving Commitments (or in the Revolving Commitment of any Lender) or tranche of Incremental Term Loans shall become effective under this paragraph unless, (i) on the proposed date of
95


the effectiveness of such increase or Incremental Term Loans, (A) the conditions set forth in paragraphs (a) and (b) of Section 4.02 shall be satisfied or waived by the Required Lenders and the Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate to that effect dated such date and executed by a Responsible Officer of the Company; provided, however that in the case of any Incremental Increase the proceeds of which are to be used to finance a substantially concurrent Permitted Acquisition that is not conditioned upon the availability of, or obtaining, third-party financing (any such Permitted Acquisition being a “Limited Conditionality Acquisition”), to the extent agreed by the Lenders providing such Incremental Increase, (1) the representations and warranties the accuracy of which are a condition to the availability of such Incremental Increase shall be limited to customary “SunGuard” or other applicable “certain funds” conditionality provisions and (2) the condition to availability of such Incremental Increase requiring that no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing shall be limited to (I) at the time of the execution and delivery of the definitive agreement for such Limited Conditionality Acquisition no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or shall occur as a result thereof and (II) no Event of Default under clauses (a) or (f) of Article VII shall exist immediately prior to or after giving effect to such Incremental Increase (which Event of Default under this clause (II), for the avoidance of doubt, cannot be waived without the written consent of the Required Lenders); and (B) the Company shall be in compliance (on a Pro Forma Basis) with the covenants contained in Section 6.18; provided that in the case of any Incremental Increase the proceeds of which are to be used to finance a Limited Conditionality Acquisition, to the extent agreed by the Lenders providing such Incremental Increase, there shall be no condition to the availability of the Incremental Increase related to the financial covenants contained in Section 6.18 (other than, to the extent applicable, the incurrence test with respect thereto contained in the definition of Incremental Amount); and (ii) the Administrative Agent shall have received documents consistent with those delivered on the Original Effective Date as to the organizational power and authority of the Borrowers to borrow hereunder after giving effect to such increase. On the effective date of any increase in the Revolving Commitments of any Class or any Incremental Term Loans being made, (i) each relevant Increasing Lender and Augmenting Lender shall make available to the Administrative Agent such amounts in immediately available funds as the Administrative Agent shall determine, for the benefit of the other Lenders of such Class, as being required in order to cause, after giving effect to such increase and the use of such amounts to make payments to such other Lenders, each Lender’s portion of the outstanding Revolving Loans of such Class of all the Lenders to equal its Dollar Tranche Percentage or Multicurrency Tranche Percentage, as applicable, of such outstanding Revolving Loans, and (ii) except in the case of any Incremental Term Loans, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have repaid and reborrowed all outstanding Revolving Loans of such Class as of the date of any increase in the Revolving Commitments of such Class (with such reborrowing to consist of the Types of Revolving Loans of such Class, with related Interest Periods if applicable, specified in a notice delivered by the applicable Borrower, or the Company on behalf of the applicable Borrower, in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.03). The deemed payments made pursuant to clause (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be accompanied by payment of all accrued interest on the amount prepaid and, in respect of each Eurocurrency Loan and BA Equivalent Loan, shall be subject to indemnification by the Borrowers pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.16 if the deemed payment occurs other than on the last day of the related Interest Periods. The Incremental Term Loans (a) shall rank pari passu in right of payment with the Revolving Loans and the Term Loans, (b) shall not mature earlier than the Maturity Date (but may have amortization prior to such date) and (c) shall be treated substantially the same as (and in any event no more favorably than) the Revolving Loans and the Term Loans; provided that (i) the terms and conditions applicable to any tranche of Incremental Term Loans maturing after the Maturity Date may provide for material additional or different financial or other covenants or prepayment requirements applicable only during periods after the Maturity Date and (ii) the Incremental Term Loans may be priced differently than the Revolving Loans and the Term Loans. Incremental Term Loans may be made hereunder pursuant to an amendment or restatement (an “Incremental Term Loan Amendment”)
96


of this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Loan Documents, executed by the Borrowers, each Increasing Lender participating in such tranche, each Augmenting Lender participating in such tranche, if any, and the Administrative Agent. The Incremental Term Loan Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.20. Nothing contained in this Section 2.20 shall constitute, or otherwise be deemed to be, a commitment on the part of any Lender to increase its Revolving Commitment hereunder, or provide Incremental Term Loans, at any time. In connection with any increase of the Revolving Commitments or Incremental Term Loans pursuant to this Section 2.20, any Augmenting Lender becoming a party hereto shall (1) execute such documents and agreements as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request and (2) in the case of any Augmenting Lender that is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside of the United States of America, provide to the Administrative Agent, its name, address, tax identification number and/or such other information as shall be necessary for the Administrative Agent to comply with “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including without limitation, the Patriot Act. For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall this Section 2.20 be available to the Borrowers during the Covenant Relief Period.
SECTION 2.21.Incremental Equivalent Debt. The Borrowers may, upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent, at any time after the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, issue, incur or otherwise obtain Indebtedness in respect of one or more series of senior or subordinated notes or term loans (which may be unsecured or secured on a junior lien basis or a pari passu basis with the Secured Obligations), and, in the case of notes, issued in a public offering, Rule 144A or other private placement or bridge in lieu of the foregoing, in each case, that are issued or made in lieu of an Incremental Increase and/or Incremental Term Loans (any such Indebtedness, “Incremental Equivalent Debt”); provided that (a) after giving effect (including on a Pro Forma Basis) to both (x) the issuance or incurrence of such Incremental Equivalent Debt (assuming a borrowing of the maximum credit thereunder and without netting the proceeds of such Incremental Equivalent Debt) and (y) the transactions consummated in connection therewith, (i) the aggregate amount of all Incremental Increases, Incremental Term Loans and Incremental Equivalent Debt incurred on or prior to such date does not exceed the Incremental Amount then in effect, (ii) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or would exist immediately after giving effect to such incurrence and (iii) the Company shall be in compliance with the covenants contained in Section 6.18 and (b) such Incremental Equivalent Debt shall satisfy the Permitted Other Debt Conditions.
SECTION 2.23.Interest Act (Canada), Etc. (a) For the purposes of the Interest Act (Canada) and disclosure thereunder, whenever any interest or any fee to be paid hereunder or in connection herewith by any Canadian Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor incorporated or otherwise organized under the laws of Canada or any province or territory thereof is to be calculated on the basis of a 360-day or 365-day year, the yearly rate of interest to which the rate used in such calculation is equivalent is the rate so used multiplied by the actual number of days in the calendar year in which the same is to be ascertained and divided by 360 or 365, as applicable. The rates of interest under this Agreement are nominal rates, and not effective rates or yields. The principle of deemed reinvestment of interest does not apply to any interest calculation under this Agreement.
(b)If any provision of this Agreement would oblige any Canadian Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor incorporated or otherwise organized under the laws of Canada or any province or territory thereof to make any payment of interest or other amount payable to any Secured Party in an amount or calculated at a rate which would be prohibited by law or would result in a receipt by that Secured Party of “interest” at a “criminal rate” (as such terms are construed under the Criminal Code
97


(Canada)), then, notwithstanding such provision, such amount or rate shall be deemed to have been adjusted with retroactive effect to the maximum amount or rate of interest, as the case may be, as would not be so prohibited by applicable law or so result in a receipt by that Secured Party of “interest” at a “criminal rate”, such adjustment to be effected, to the extent necessary (but only to the extent necessary), as follows:
(i)    first, by reducing the amount or rate of interest; and
(ii)    thereafter, by reducing any fees, commissions, costs, expenses, premiums and other amounts required to be paid which would constitute interest for purposes of section 347 of the Criminal Code (Canada).
SECTION 2.23.Judgment Currency. If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due from any Borrower hereunder in the currency expressed to be payable herein (the “specified currency”) into another currency, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent could purchase the specified currency with such other currency at the Administrative Agent’s main New York City office on the Business Day preceding that on which final, nonappealable judgment is given. The obligations of each Borrower in respect of any sum due to any Lender or the Administrative Agent hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than the specified currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) may in accordance with normal, reasonable banking procedures purchase the specified currency with such other currency. If the amount of the specified currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, in the specified currency, each Borrower agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, against such loss, and if the amount of the specified currency so purchased exceeds (a) the sum originally due to any Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, in the specified currency and (b) any amounts shared with other Lenders as a result of allocations of such excess as a disproportionate payment to such Lender under Section 2.18, such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, agrees to remit such excess to such Borrower.
SECTION 2.24.Designation of Subsidiary Borrowers. (a) Subject to Section 2.24(b), the Company may at any time and from time to time upon not less than five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent may agree) designate any Domestic Subsidiary and any Eligible Foreign Subsidiary as a Subsidiary Borrower by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Borrowing Subsidiary Agreement executed by such Subsidiary and the Company and the satisfaction of the other conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.03, and upon such delivery and satisfaction such Subsidiary shall for all purposes of this Agreement be a Subsidiary Borrower and a party to this Agreement until the Company shall have executed and delivered to the Administrative Agent a Borrowing Subsidiary Termination with respect to such Subsidiary, whereupon such Subsidiary shall cease to be a Subsidiary Borrower and a party to this Agreement. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, (i) no Subsidiary may become a Subsidiary Borrower at any time such Subsidiary constitutes an Excluded Acquired Subsidiary and (ii) no Borrowing Subsidiary Termination will become effective as to any Subsidiary Borrower at a time when any principal of or interest on any Loan to such Borrower shall be outstanding hereunder, provided that such Borrowing Subsidiary Termination shall be effective to terminate the right of such Subsidiary Borrower to make further Borrowings under this
98


Agreement. As soon as practicable upon receipt of a Borrowing Subsidiary Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall furnish a copy thereof to each Lender. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall be liable for any Loan, or shall grant any Lien securing any Loan or have its Equity Interests pledged to secure any Loan, not made directly to such Borrower to the extent it would make such a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower an Affected Foreign Subsidiary and no Subsidiary Guarantor shall be liable for any Loan, or shall grant any Lien securing any Loan or have its Equity Interests pledged to secure any Loan, made to a Borrower to the extent it would make such Subsidiary Guarantor an Affected Foreign Subsidiary.
(b)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if any Lender determines that, as a result of any applicable law, rule, regulation or treaty or any applicable request, rule, requirement, guideline or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority, it is or it becomes unlawful for such Lender to perform any of its obligations as contemplated by this Agreement with respect to any Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or any Eligible Foreign Subsidiary or for such Lender to fund or maintain any participation or any Loan to any Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or any Eligible Foreign Subsidiary:
(i)such Lender shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent upon becoming aware of such event;
(ii)(x) such Eligible Foreign Subsidiary shall not be permitted to become a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower and (y) the obligations of all Lenders to make, convert or continue any participations and Loans to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall be suspended, as the case may be, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Company that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist; and
i.the Borrowers shall repay any outstanding participations or Loans made to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower on the last day of the Interest Period for each Loan occurring after the Administrative Agent has notified the Company or, if earlier, the date specified by the Lender in the notice delivered to the Administrative Agent (being no earlier than the last day of any applicable grace period permitted by law).
SECTION 2.01.Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
(a)fees shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.12(a);
(b)the Commitment and Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether the Required Lenders, the Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders or the Majority in Interest of the Term Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification pursuant to Section 9.02); provided, that, except as otherwise provided in Section 9.02, this clause (b) shall not apply to the vote of a Defaulting Lender in the case of an amendment, waiver or other modification requiring the consent of such Lender or each Lender directly affected thereby;
(c)if any Swingline Exposure or LC Exposure exists at the time such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then:
99


(i)so long as at the time of such reallocation (x) no Default has occurred and is continuing and (y) the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 are satisfied: all or any part of the Swingline Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Multicurrency Tranche Lenders in accordance with their respective Multicurrency Tranche Percentages but only to the extent (A) the sum of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Swingline Exposure does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Multicurrency Tranche Lenders’ Multicurrency Tranche Commitments and (B) each non-Defaulting Lender’s Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Credit Exposure does not exceed such non-Defaulting Lender’s Multicurrency Tranche Commitment; and all or any part of the Dollar Tranche LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Dollar Tranche Lenders in accordance with their respective Dollar Tranche Percentages but only to the extent (C) the sum of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Dollar Tranche LC Tranche Exposure does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Dollar Tranche Lenders’ Dollar Tranche Commitments and (D) each non-Defaulting Lender’s Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposure does not exceed such non-Defaulting Lender’s Dollar Tranche Commitment; and all or any part of the Multicurrency Tranche LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Multicurrency Tranche Lenders in accordance with their respective Multicurrency Tranche Percentages but only to the extent (E) the sum of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Multicurrency Tranche LC Tranche Exposure does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Multicurrency Tranche Lenders’ Multicurrency Tranche Commitments and (F) each non-Defaulting Lender’s Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Credit Exposure does not exceed such non-Defaulting Lender’s Multicurrency Tranche Commitment;
(ii)if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Company shall within one (1) Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent (x) first, prepay such Swingline Exposure and (y) second, cash collateralize for the benefit of the Issuing Banks only the Borrowers’ obligations corresponding to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above) in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.06(j) for so long as such LC Exposure is outstanding;
(iii)if the Company cash collateralizes any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.12(b) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure during the period such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure is cash collateralized;
(iv)if the LC Exposure of the non-Defaulting Lenders is reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above, then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Sections 2.12(a) and Section 2.12(b) shall be adjusted in accordance with such non-Defaulting Lenders’ Applicable Percentages; and
(v)if all or any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure is neither reallocated nor cash collateralized pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Issuing Banks or any other Lender hereunder, all letter of credit fees payable under Section 2.12(b) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure shall be payable to the applicable Issuing Bank until and to the extent that such LC Exposure is reallocated and/or cash collateralized; and
100


(d)so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loan and the Issuing Banks shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless it is satisfied that the related exposure and the Defaulting Lender’s then outstanding LC Exposure will be 100% covered by the Revolving Commitments of the nonDefaulting Lenders and/or cash collateral will be provided by the Company in accordance with Section 2.25(c), and participating interests in any such newly made Swingline Loan or any newly issued or increased Letter of Credit shall be allocated among non-Defaulting Lenders in a manner consistent with Section 2.25(c)(i) (and such Defaulting Lender shall not participate therein).
If (i) a Bankruptcy Event or a Bail-In Action with respect to a Parent of any Lender shall occur following the Original Effective Date and for so long as such event shall continue or (ii) the Swingline Lender or any Issuing Bank has a good faith belief that any Lender has defaulted in fulfilling its obligations under one or more other agreements in which such Lender commits to extend credit, the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loan and the Issuing Banks shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless the Swingline Lender or the applicable Issuing Bank, as the case may be, shall have entered into arrangements with the Company or such Lender, satisfactory to the Swingline Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, to defease any risk to it in respect of such Lender hereunder.
In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Company, the Swingline Lender and the Issuing Banks each agrees that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then the Swingline Exposure and LC Exposure of the Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Commitment and on such date such Lender shall purchase at par such of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans and/or Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans of the other Lenders (other than Swingline Loans) as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Lender to hold such Loans in accordance with its Applicable Percentage.
ARTICLE III

Representations and Warranties
Each Borrower represents and warrants to the Lenders that:
SECTION 3.01.Financial Condition. The (a) audited consolidated balance sheets of the Company as of December 31, 2012, December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2014, and the related consolidated statements of income and of cash flows for the fiscal years ended on such dates, reported on by and accompanied by an unqualified report from Deloitte & Touche LLP, and (b) consolidated balance sheets of the Company as of and for the fiscal quarter and the portion of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015, and the related consolidated statements of income and of cash flows for such dates, in each case, present fairly the consolidated financial condition of the Company as at such date, and the consolidated results of its operations and its consolidated cash flows for the respective periods then ended. All such financial statements, including the related notes thereto, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP applied consistently throughout the periods involved (except as approved by the aforementioned firm of accountants and disclosed therein), subject to year-end audit adjustments and the absence of footnotes in the case of the statements referred to in clause (a) above. As of the Restatement Effective Date, the Company and its Subsidiaries do not have outstanding any material Guarantee Obligations, contingent liabilities and liabilities for taxes, or any long term leases or unusual forward or long term commitments, including, without limitation, any interest rate or foreign currency swap or exchange
101


transaction or other obligation in respect of derivatives that are not reflected on its most recent financial statements referred to in this paragraph, other than those items in the ordinary course of business that are not reflected or disclosed in the most recent financial statements referred to in this paragraph. During the period from December 31, 2014 to and including the Restatement Effective Date, there has been no Disposition by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of any material part of its business or Property.
SECTION 3.02.No Change. Since December 31, 2014, there has been no development or event that has had or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
SECTION 3.03.Corporate Existence; Compliance with Law. Each of the Company and its Subsidiaries (a) is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing (or the equivalent in the applicable jurisdiction) under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, (b) has the corporate, company or partnership power and authority, and the legal right, to own and operate its Property, to lease the Property it operates as lessee and to conduct the business in which it is currently engaged, (c) is duly qualified as a foreign corporation, company or partnership and in good standing (or the equivalent in the applicable jurisdiction) under the laws of each jurisdiction where its ownership, lease or operation of Property or the conduct of its business requires such qualification, except to the extent that the failure to be so qualified or in good standing (or the equivalent in the applicable jurisdiction) could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect and (d) is in compliance with all Requirements of Law, except to the extent that the failure to comply therewith could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Each Borrower organized under the laws of any member of the European Union represents and warrants to the Lenders that its centre of main interest (as that term is used in Article 3(1) of the Regulation) is in its jurisdiction of incorporation.
SECTION 3.04.Corporate Power; Authorization; Enforceable Obligations. Each Loan Party has the corporate, company or partnership power and authority, and the legal right, to make, deliver and perform the Loan Documents to which it is a party and, in the case of each Borrower, to borrow hereunder. Each Loan Party has taken all necessary corporate, company or partnership or other action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents to which it is a party and, in the case of each Borrower, to authorize the borrowings on the terms and conditions of this Agreement. No consent or authorization of, filing with, notice to or other act by or in respect of, any Governmental Authority or any other Person is required in connection with the Transactions, the borrowings hereunder or the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, except (i) such consents, authorizations, filings and notices as shall have been obtained or made and are in full force and effect, (ii) routine filings to be made after the Restatement Effective Date in the ordinary course of business (e.g., good standing filings), (iii) the filings referred to in Section 3.19. Each Loan Document has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of each Loan Party that is a party thereto and (iv) in the case of a UK Relevant Entity, any registrations that may be required under Section 860 Companies Act 2006 (which registrations shall be carried out by the Administrative Agent or its counsel). This Agreement constitutes, and each other Loan Document upon execution will constitute, a legal, valid and binding obligation of each Loan Party that is a party thereto, enforceable against each such Loan Party in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law).
SECTION 3.05.No Legal Bar. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the issuance of Letters of Credit, the borrowings hereunder and the use of the proceeds thereof will not violate any Requirement of Law or any Contractual Obligation of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries and will not result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien on any of their respective properties or revenues pursuant to any Requirement of
102


Law or any such Contractual Obligation (other than the Liens created by the Collateral Documents). Except as reflected in the risk factors section of the Company’s most recent 10-K filed with the SEC prior to the Restatement Effective Date, no Requirement of Law or Contractual Obligation applicable to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
SECTION 3.06.No Material Litigation. No litigation, investigation or proceeding of or before any arbitrator or Governmental Authority is pending or, to the knowledge of any Borrower, threatened by or against the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or against any of their respective properties or revenues (a) with respect to any of the Loan Documents or any of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or (b) that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
SECTION 3.07.No Default. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is in default under or with respect to any of its Contractual Obligations in any respect that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. No Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
SECTION 3.08.Ownership of Property; Liens. Except as disclosed on Schedule 3.08, each of the Company and its Subsidiaries is the sole owner of, legally and beneficially, and has good marketable and insurable title in fee simple to, or a valid leasehold interest in, all its real property, and good title to, or a valid leasehold interest in, all its other Property, and none of such Property is subject to any claims, liabilities, obligations, charges or restrictions of any kind, nature or description or to any Lien except for Permitted Liens. None of the Pledged Stock is subject to any Lien except for Permitted Liens.
SECTION 3.09.Intellectual Property. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries owns, or is licensed to use, all Intellectual Property necessary for the conduct of its business as currently conducted without conflict in any material respect with the rights of any other Person. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.09, no material claim has been asserted or is pending by any Person challenging or questioning the use of any Intellectual Property or the validity or effectiveness of any Intellectual Property, nor does any Borrower know of any valid basis for any such claim. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.09, the use of Intellectual Property by the Company and its Subsidiaries does not infringe on the rights of any Person in any material respect.
SECTION 3.10.Taxes.
(a). The Company and each of its Subsidiaries has filed or caused to be filed all Federal, state, provincial and other material tax returns that are required to be filed and has paid all taxes shown to be due and payable on said returns or on any assessments made against it or any of its Property and all other material taxes, fees or other charges imposed on it or any of its Property by any Governmental Authority (other than (i) the amounts or the validity of which are currently being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and with respect to which reserves in conformity with GAAP have been provided on the books of the Company or its Subsidiaries, as the case may be or (ii) to the extent the failure to do so could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect); and, to the knowledge of any Borrower, no tax Lien has been filed and no claim for overdue amounts is being asserted, with respect to any such tax, fee or other charge. No Loan Party and no Subsidiary thereof (i) intends to treat the Loans or any other transaction contemplated hereby as being a “reportable transaction” (within the meaning of Treasury Regulation 1.6011-4) or (ii) is aware of any facts or events that would result in such treatment.
103


(b)Each Swiss Borrower represents to the Lenders that it is compliant with the Swiss Non-Bank Rules (it being understood that, for the purpose of this representation, each Swiss Borrower has assumed that the aggregate number of Lenders under this Agreement which are Non-Qualifying Banks is ten (10) (irrespective of whether or not there are, at any time, any such Lenders)). This representation shall not be breached if the number of Lenders being Non-Qualifying Banks under the Swiss Non-Bank Rules is exceeded solely as a result of:
(i)a Lender had been a Qualifying Bank, but on that date that Lender is not or has ceased to be a Qualifying Bank as a result of any reason attributable to such Lender or as a result of any change after the date it became a Lender under this Agreement in (or in the interpretation, administration, or application of) any law, treaty or any published practice of any relevant taxing authority);
(ii)any non-compliance by a Lender with its obligations in accordance with Section 9.04(b)(ii)(G);
(iii)a Lender making a misrepresentation as to its status as a Qualifying Bank; or
(iv)any transfer to new Lenders which are Non- Qualifying Banks after the occurrence of an Event of Default.
SECTION 3.11.Federal Regulations. No part of the proceeds of any Loans or Letter of Credit will be used for, and no Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries is engaged principally, or as one of its activities, in the business of extending credit for the purposes of, “purchasing” or “carrying” any “margin stock” within the respective meanings of each of the quoted terms under Regulation U as now and from time to time hereafter in effect or for any purpose that violates the provisions of the Regulations of the Board. If requested by any Lender or the Administrative Agent, each Borrower will furnish to the Administrative Agent and each Lender a statement to the foregoing effect in conformity with the requirements of FR Form G-3 or FR Form U 1 referred to in Regulation U.

Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13, the present value of all accrued benefits under each Single Employer Plan (based on those assumptions used to fund such Plans) did not, as of the last annual valuation date prior to the date on which this representation is made or deemed made, exceed the value of the assets of such Plan allocable to such accrued benefits by a material amount. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13, none of the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any Commonly Controlled Entity has had a complete or partial withdrawal from any Multiemployer Plan that has resulted or could reasonably be expected to result in a material liability under ERISA, and none of the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any Commonly Controlled Entity would become subject to any material liability under ERISA if the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any such Commonly Controlled Entity were to withdraw completely from all Multiemployer Plans as of the valuation date most closely preceding the date on which this representation is made or deemed made. No such Multiemployer Plan is in Reorganization or Insolvent. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13, neither the Company nor its Subsidiaries maintain or contribute to any employee welfare benefit plan (as defined in Section 3(1) of ERISA) which provides benefits to retired employees or other former employees (other than as required by Section 601 of ERISA) or any Plan the obligations with respect to which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on the ability of the Borrowers to perform their obligations under this Agreement.
(b)Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13, each Non-US Plan is in compliance with all requirements of law applicable thereto and the respective requirements of the governing documents for such plan except to the extent such non-compliance could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. With respect to each Non-US Plan, none of the Company, its Affiliates or any of their directors, officers, employees or agents has engaged in a transaction, or other act or omission (including entering into this Agreement and any act done or to be done in connection with this Agreement), that has subjected, or could reasonably be expected to subject, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, directly or indirectly, to any penalty (including any tax or civil penalty), fine, claim or other liability (including any liability under a contribution notice or financial support direction (as those terms are defined in the United Kingdom Pensions Act 2004), or any liability or amount payable under section 75 or 75A of the United Kingdom Pensions Act 1995), that could reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to have a Material Adverse Effect and there are no facts or circumstances which may give rise to any such penalty, fine, claim, or other liability. With respect to each Non-US Plan, reserves
105


have been established in the financial statements furnished to Lenders in respect of any unfunded liabilities in accordance with applicable law or, where required, in accordance with ordinary accounting practices in the jurisdiction in which such Non-US Plan is maintained. The aggregate unfunded liabilities, with respect to such Non-US Plans could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. There are no actions, suits or claims (other than routine claims for benefits) pending or threatened against the Company or any of its Affiliates with respect to any Non-US Plan which could reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

ARTICLE VIII

The Administrative Agent
Each of the Lenders, on behalf of itself and any of its Affiliates that are Secured Parties, and the Issuing Banks hereby irrevocably appoints the Administrative Agent as its agent and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such actions on its behalf, including execution of the other Loan Documents, and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of the Loan Documents, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. In furtherance of the foregoing, and not in limitation, each of the Lenders authorizes the Administrative Agent to enter into one or more intercreditor agreements acceptable to the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion with parties to any Permitted Receivables Facility. Such intercreditor agreements may provide for, among other things, (i) the Administrative Agent’s and the Lenders’ forbearance of, and other limitations on, any exercise of remedies in respect of any equity interests in any Receivables Entity and/or any notes issued by any Receivables Entity to any Receivables Seller in connection with any Permitted Receivables Facility, in any case, that have been pledged to secure the Obligations and/or (ii) disclaimers of interests on, and releases of security interests in, any Receivables and Permitted Receivables Facility Assets. The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders (including the Swingline Lender and each Issuing Bank), and neither the Company nor any other Loan Party shall have rights as a third party beneficiary of any of such provisions. It is understood and agreed that the use of the term “agent” as used herein or in any other Loan Documents (or any similar term) with reference to the Administrative Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead, such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties.
142


The bank serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and such bank and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if it were not the Administrative Agent hereunder.
The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) the Administrative Agent shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Loan Documents that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise in writing as directed by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 9.02), and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 9.02) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. The Administrative Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to the Administrative Agent by the Company or a Lender, and the Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with any Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or in connection with any Loan Document, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth in any Loan Document, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of any Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, (v) the creation, perfection or priority of Liens on the Collateral or the existence of the Collateral or (vi) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent.
The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or sent by the proper Person. The Administrative Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Company), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.
The Administrative Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent.
143


Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Administrative Agent as provided in this paragraph, the Administrative Agent may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Company. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with the Company, to appoint a successor. If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders and the Issuing Banks, appoint a successor Administrative Agent which shall be a bank with an office in New York, New York, or an Affiliate of any such bank. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. The fees payable by any Borrower to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between such Borrower and such successor. After the Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article and Section 9.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Administrative Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as Administrative Agent.
Each Lender acknowledges that the extensions of credit made hereunder are commercial loans and letters of credit and not investments in a business enterprise or securities. Each Lender further acknowledges that it is engaged in making, acquiring or holding commercial loans in the ordinary course of its business and has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement as a Lender, and to make, acquire or hold Loans hereunder. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder and in deciding whether or the extent to which it will continue as a Lender or assign or otherwise transfer its rights, interests and obligations hereunder.
None of the Lenders, if any, identified in this Agreement as a Syndication Agent or Documentation Agent shall have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under this Agreement other than those applicable to all Lenders as such. Without limiting the foregoing, none of such Lenders shall have or be deemed to have a fiduciary relationship with any Lender. Each Lender hereby makes the same acknowledgments with respect to the relevant Lenders in their respective capacities as Syndication Agent or Documentation Agents, as applicable, as it makes with respect to the Administrative Agent in the preceding paragraph.
The Lenders are not partners or co-venturers, and no Lender shall be liable for the acts or omissions of, or (except as otherwise set forth herein in case of the Administrative Agent) authorized to act for, any other Lender. The Administrative Agent shall have the exclusive right on behalf of the Lenders to enforce the payment of the principal of and interest on any Loan after the date such principal or interest has become due and payable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
In its capacity, the Administrative Agent is a “representative” of the Secured Parties within the meaning of the term “secured party” as defined in the New York Uniform Commercial Code. Each Lender authorizes the Administrative Agent to enter into each of the Collateral Documents to which it is a party and to take all action contemplated by such documents. Each Lender agrees that no Secured
144


Party (other than the Administrative Agent) shall have the right individually to seek to realize upon the security granted by any Collateral Document, it being understood and agreed that such rights and remedies may be exercised solely by the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties upon the terms of the Collateral Documents. In the event that any Collateral is hereafter pledged by any Person as collateral security for the Secured Obligations, the Administrative Agent is hereby authorized, and hereby granted a power of attorney, to execute and deliver on behalf of the Secured Parties any Loan Documents necessary or appropriate to grant and perfect a Lien on such Collateral in favor of the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties. The Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its discretion, to release any Lien granted to or held by the Administrative Agent upon any Collateral (i) as described in Section 9.02(d); (ii) as permitted by, but only in accordance with, the terms of the applicable Loan Document; or (iii) if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Lenders, unless such release is required to be approved by all of the Lenders hereunder. Upon request by the Administrative Agent at any time, the Lenders will confirm in writing the Administrative Agent’s authority to release particular types or items of Collateral pursuant hereto. Upon any sale or transfer of assets constituting Collateral which is permitted pursuant to the terms of any Loan Document, or consented to in writing by the Required Lenders or all of the Lenders, as applicable, and upon at least five (5) Business Days’ prior written request by the Company to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall (and is hereby irrevocably authorized by the Lenders to) execute such documents as may be necessary to evidence the release of the Liens granted to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties herein or pursuant hereto upon the Collateral that was sold or transferred; provided, however, that (i) the Administrative Agent shall not be required to execute any such document on terms which, in the Administrative Agent’s opinion, would expose the Administrative Agent to liability or create any obligation or entail any consequence other than the release of such Liens without recourse or warranty, and (ii) such release shall not in any manner discharge, affect or impair the Secured Obligations or any Liens upon (or obligations of the Company or any Subsidiary in respect of) all interests retained by the Company or any Subsidiary, including (without limitation) the proceeds of the sale, all of which shall continue to constitute part of the Collateral. Any execution and delivery by the Administrative Agent of documents in connection with any such release shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Administrative Agent.
In case of the pendency of any proceeding with respect to any Loan Party under any Federal, state or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or similar law now or hereafter in effect, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or any LC Disbursement shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on the Company or any other Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered (but not obligated) by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:
(a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, LC Exposure and all other Secured Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Administrative Agent (including any claim under Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.15, 2.16, 2.17 and 9.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and
(b) collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;
and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender, each Issuing Bank and each other Secured Party to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent
145


to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders, the Issuing Banks or the other Secured Parties, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due to it, in its capacity as the Administrative Agent, under the Loan Documents (including under Section 9.03).
For greater certainty and without limiting the powers of the Administrative Agent, each Borrower, on its behalf and on behalf of its Subsidiaries, and each Lender, on its behalf and on the behalf of its affiliated Secured Parties, hereby irrevocably constitute the Administrative Agent as the holder of an irrevocable power of attorney (fondé de pouvoir within the meaning of Article 2692 of the Civil Code of Québec) in order to hold hypothecs and security granted by each Borrower or any Subsidiary on property pursuant to the laws of the Province of Quebec to secure obligations of any Borrower or any Subsidiary under any bond, debenture or similar title of indebtedness issued by any Borrower or any Subsidiary in connection with this Agreement, and agrees that the Administrative Agent may act as the bondholder and mandatary with respect to any shares, capital stock or other securities or any bond, debenture or similar title of indebtedness that may be issued by any Borrower or any Subsidiary and pledged in favor of the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties in connection with this Agreement. The execution by Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, acting as fondé de pouvoir and mandatary, prior to the Credit Agreement of any deeds of hypothec or other security documents is hereby ratified and confirmed. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 32 of An Act respecting the special powers of legal persons (Québec), Wells Fargo Bank, National Association as Administrative Agent may acquire and be the holder of any bond issued by any Borrower or any Subsidiary in connection with this Agreement (i.e., the fondé de pouvoir may acquire and hold the first bond issued under any deed of hypothec by any Borrower or any Subsidiary). The constitution of Wells Fargo Bank, National Association as fondé de pouvoir, and of the Administrative Agent as bondholder and mandatary with respect to any bond, debenture, shares, capital stock or other securities that may be issued and pledged from time to time to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties, shall be deemed to have been ratified and confirmed by each Person accepting an assignment of, a participation in or an arrangement in respect of, all or any portion of any Secured Parties’ rights and obligations under this Agreement by the execution of an assignment, including an Assignment and Assumption Agreement or other agreement pursuant to which it becomes such assignee or participant, and by each successor Administrative Agent. Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, acting as fondé de pouvoir shall have the same rights, powers, immunities, indemnities and exclusions from liability as are prescribed in favor of the Administrative Agent, which shall apply mutatis mutandis to Wells Fargo Bank, National Association acting as fondé de pouvoir.
The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to execute and deliver any documents necessary or appropriate to create and perfect the rights of pledge over assets governed by the laws of The Netherlands for the benefit of the Secured Parties (a “Dutch Pledge”). Without prejudice to the provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the parties hereto acknowledge and agree with the creation of parallel debt obligations of the Company or any relevant Subsidiary as will be described in any Dutch Pledge (the “Parallel Debt”), including that any payment received by the Administrative Agent in respect of the Parallel Debt will - conditionally upon such payment not subsequently being avoided or reduced by virtue of any provisions or enactments relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, preference, liquidation or similar laws of general application - be deemed a satisfaction of a pro rata portion of the corresponding amounts of the Obligations. The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that, for purposes of any Dutch Pledge, any resignation by the Administrative Agent is not effective until its rights under the Parallel Debt are assigned to the successor Administrative Agent.
The parties hereto acknowledge and agree for the purposes of taking and ensuring the continuing validity of German law governed pledges (Pfandrechte) with the creation of parallel debt
146


obligations of the Company and its Subsidiaries as will be further described in a separate German law governed parallel debt undertaking. The Administrative Agent shall (i) hold such parallel debt undertaking as fiduciary agent (Treuhänder) and (ii) administer and hold as fiduciary agent (Treuhänder) any pledge created under a German law governed Collateral Document which is created in favor of any Secured Party or transferred to any Secured Party due to its accessory nature (Akzessorietät), in each case in its own name and for the account of the Secured Parties. Each Lender (on behalf of itself and its affiliated Secured Parties) hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to enter as its agent in its name and on its behalf into any German law governed Collateral Document, accept as its agent in its name and on its behalf any pledge or other creation of any accessory security right in relation to this Agreement and to agree to and execute on its behalf as its representative in its name and on its behalf any amendments, supplements and other alterations to any such Collateral Document and to release on behalf of any such Lender or Secured Party any such Collateral Document and any pledge created under any such Collateral Document in accordance with the provisions herein and/or the provisions in any such Collateral Document.

Notices delivered through Electronic Systems, to the extent provided in paragraph (b) below, shall be effective as provided in said paragraph (b).
(b)Notices and other communications to the Lenders and the Issuing Banks hereunder may be delivered or furnished by using Electronic Systems pursuant to procedures approved by the Administrative Agent; provided that the foregoing shall not apply to notices pursuant to Article II unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Lender. The Administrative Agent, any applicable Issuing Bank, or the Company may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications.
Unless the Administrative Agent otherwise prescribes, (i) notices and other communications sent to an e-mail address shall be deemed received upon the sender’s receipt of an acknowledgement from the intended recipient (such as by the “return receipt requested” function, as available, return e-mail or other written acknowledgement), and (ii) notices or communications posted to an Internet or intranet website shall be deemed received upon the deemed receipt by the intended recipient, at its e-mail address as described in the foregoing clause (i), of notification that such notice or communication is available and identifying the website address therefor; provided that, for both clauses (i) and (ii) above, if such notice, email or other communication is not sent during the normal business hours of the recipient, such notice or communication shall be deemed to have been sent at the opening of business on the next business day for the recipient.

(i)The Company agrees that the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, make Communications (as defined below) available to the Issuing Banks and the other Lenders by posting the Communications on Debt Domain, Intralinks, Syndtrak, ClearPar or a substantially similar Electronic System.
(ii)Any Electronic System used by the Administrative Agent is provided “as is” and “as available.” The Agent Parties (as defined below) do not warrant the adequacy of such Electronic Systems and expressly disclaim liability for errors or omissions in the Communications. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third-party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects, is made by any Agent Party in connection with the Communications or any Electronic System. In no event shall the Administrative Agent or any of its Related Parties (collectively, the “Agent Parties”) have any liability to any Loan Party, any Lender, any Issuing Bank or any other Person or entity for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) arising out of any Loan Party’s or the Administrative Agent’s transmission of Communications through an Electronic System, other than any such direct damages, losses and expenses caused by the Administrative Agent’s or any of its Related Parties’ own gross
148


negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. “Communications” means, collectively, any notice, demand, communication, information, document or other material provided by or on behalf of any Loan Party pursuant to any Loan Document or the transactions contemplated therein which is distributed by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Bank by means of electronic communications pursuant to this Section, including through an Electronic System.
SECTION 9.02.Waivers; Amendments. (a) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by any Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan or issuance of a Letter of Credit shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Bank may have had notice or knowledge of such Default at the time.
(b)Except as provided in Section 2.20 with respect to an Incremental Term Loan Amendment or as otherwise provided in Section 9.02(c), (f) or (g), neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Borrowers and the Required Lenders or by the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such agreement shall (i) increase the Commitment of any Lender without the written consent of such Lender, (ii) reduce the principal amount of any Loan or LC Disbursement or reduce the rate of interest thereon, or reduce any fees payable hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (iii) postpone the scheduled date of payment of the principal amount of any Loan or LC Disbursement (other than any reduction of the amount of, or any extension of the payment date for, the mandatory prepayments required under Section 2.11(b) or (c), in each case which shall only require the approval of the Required Lenders), or any interest thereon, or any fees payable hereunder, or reduce the amount of, waive or excuse any such payment, or postpone the scheduled date of expiration of any Commitment or extend the stated expiration date of any Letter of Credit beyond the Maturity Date, in each case without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (iv) change Section 2.18(b) or (d) in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby, without the written consent of each Lender, (v) change any of the provisions of this Section or the definition of “Required Lenders” or any other provision hereof specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to waive, amend or modify any rights hereunder or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender (it being understood that, solely with the consent of the parties prescribed by Section 2.20 to be parties to an Incremental Term Loan Amendment, Incremental Term Loans may be included in the determination of Required Lenders on substantially the same basis as the Commitments and the Revolving Loans are included on the Original Effective Date), (vi) reduce the percentage specified in the definition of Majority in Interest with respect to any Class of Lenders without the written consent of all the Lenders of such Class, (vii) release any Borrower or all or substantially all of the Subsidiary Guarantors from their Guarantee Obligations under Article X or the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement without the written consent of each Lender, (viii) except as provided in clause (d) of this
149


Section or in any Collateral Document, release all or substantially all of the Collateral, without the written consent of each Lender, (ix) increase the stated maximum Dollar Amount of Revolving Credit Exposures with respect to Mexican Pesos without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (x) change any provisions of any Loan Document in a manner that by its terms adversely affects the rights in respect of payments due to Lenders holding Loans of any Class differently than those holding Loans of any other Class without the written consent of Lenders representing a Majority in Interest of each affected Class or (xi) amend, waive or otherwise change any of the provisions of Section 2.24, without the written consent of each Lender directly and adversely affected thereby; provided further that no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or the Swingline Lender hereunder without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or the Swingline Lender, as the case may be (it being understood that any change to Section 2.25 shall require the consent of the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and the Swingline Lender). Notwithstanding the foregoing, no consent with respect to any amendment, waiver or other modification of this Agreement shall be required of any Defaulting Lender, except with respect to any amendment, waiver or other modification referred to in clause (i), (ii) or (iii) of the first proviso of this paragraph and then only in the event such Defaulting Lender shall be directly affected by such amendment, waiver or other modification.
(c)Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement and any other Loan Document may be amended (or amended and restated) with the written consent of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers to each relevant Loan Document (x) to add one or more credit facilities (in addition to the Incremental Term Loans pursuant to an Incremental Term Loan Amendment) to this Agreement and to permit extensions of credit from time to time outstanding thereunder and the accrued interest and fees in respect thereof to share ratably in the benefits of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents with the Revolving Loans, the Term Loans, Incremental Term Loans and the accrued interest and fees in respect thereof and (y) to include appropriately the Lenders holding such credit facilities in any determination of the Required Lenders and Lenders.
(d)The Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its sole discretion, to release any Liens granted to the Administrative Agent by the Loan Parties on any Collateral (i) upon the termination of all the Commitments, payment and satisfaction in full in cash of all Secured Obligations (other than Unliquidated Obligations), and the cash collateralization of all Unliquidated Obligations in a manner satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (ii) constituting property being sold or disposed of if the Company certifies to the Administrative Agent that the sale or disposition is made in compliance with the terms of this Agreement (and the Administrative Agent may rely conclusively on any such certificate, without further inquiry), (iii) constituting property leased to the Company or any Subsidiary under a lease which has expired or been terminated in a transaction permitted under this Agreement, (iv) as required to effect any sale or other disposition of such Collateral in connection with any exercise of remedies of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders pursuant to Article VII or (v) upon the occurrence of a Collateral Release Date in accordance with the terms and conditions of Section 5.09(f). Any such release shall not in any manner discharge, affect, or impair the Obligations or any Liens (other than those expressly being released) upon (or obligations of the Loan Parties in respect of) all interests retained by the Loan Parties, including the proceeds of any sale, all of which shall continue to constitute part of the Collateral so long as a Collateral Period is then in effect.
(e)If, in connection with any proposed amendment, waiver or consent requiring the consent of “each Lender” or “each Lender directly affected thereby,” the consent of the Required Lenders is obtained, but the consent of other necessary Lenders is not obtained (any such Lender whose consent is necessary but not obtained being referred to herein as a “Non-Consenting Lender”), then the Company
150


may elect to replace a Non-Consenting Lender as a Lender party to this Agreement, provided that, concurrently with such replacement, (i) another bank or other entity which is reasonably satisfactory to the Company and the Administrative Agent shall agree, as of such date, to purchase for cash the Loans and other Obligations due to the Non-Consenting Lender pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption and to become a Lender for all purposes under this Agreement and to assume all obligations of the Non-Consenting Lender to be terminated as of such date and to comply with the requirements of clause (b) of Section 9.04, and (ii) each Borrower shall pay to such Non-Consenting Lender in same day funds on the day of such replacement (1) the outstanding principal amount of its Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and all interest, fees and other amounts then accrued but unpaid to such NonConsenting Lender by such Borrower hereunder to and including the date of termination, including without limitation payments due to such Non-Consenting Lender under Sections 2.15, 2.17, 2.17A and 2.17B, and (2) an amount, if any, equal to the payment which would have been due to such Lender on the day of such replacement under Section 2.16 had the Loans of such Non-Consenting Lender been prepaid on such date rather than sold to the replacement Lender.
(f)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein the Administrative Agent may, with the consent of the Borrowers only, amend, modify or supplement this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents to cure any ambiguity, omission, mistake, defect or inconsistency.
(g)The Administrative Agent may, without the consent of any Lender, enter into amendments or modifications to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or to enter into additional Loan Documents as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems appropriate in order to implement any Replacement Rate or otherwise effectuate the terms of Section 2.14 in accordance with the terms of Section 2.14.
SECTION 9.03.Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. (a) The Company shall pay (i) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of counsels for the Administrative Agent, in connection with the syndication and distribution (including, without limitation, via the internet or through a service such as Syndtrak) of the credit facilities provided for herein, the preparation and administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof or thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated), (ii) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Issuing Banks in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder and (iii) all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, including the fees, charges and disbursements of one U.S. counsel, one Canadian counsel and one additional local counsel and regulatory counsel in each applicable jurisdiction for the Administrative Agent and one additional counsel for all the Lenders other than the Administrative Agent and additional counsel in light of actual or potential conflicts of interest or the availability of different claims or defenses for the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with this Agreement and any other Loan Document, including its rights under this Section, or in connection with the Loans made or Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans or Letters of Credit. The Administrative Agent shall use its reasonable efforts to cause its counsels to provide invoices to the Company covering all fees, charges and disbursements of such counsel within ninety (90) days of the incurrence of any time or expense by such counsel.

(b)The Company shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including the fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of any Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations thereunder or the consummation of the Transactions or any other transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds therefrom (including any refusal by an Issuing Bank to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit), (iii) any actual or alleged presence or release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Environmental Liability related in any way to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory, whether brought by a third party or by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or its or their respective equity holders, Affiliates or creditors, and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee. This Section 9.03(b) shall not apply with respect to Taxes or UK Taxes other than any Taxes or UK Taxes that represent losses, claims or damages arising from any non-Tax or non-UK Tax claim.
(c)To the extent that the Company fails to pay any amount required to be paid by it to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or the Swingline Lender under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, and each Revolving Lender severally agrees to pay to the applicable Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender, as the case may be, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount (it being understood that the Company’s failure to pay any such amount shall not relieve the Company of any default in the payment thereof); provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender in its capacity as such.
(d)To the extent permitted by applicable law, no Borrower shall assert, and each Borrower hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee (i) for any damages arising from the use by others of information or other materials obtained through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems (including the Internet), other than claims based on the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee, or (ii) on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the Transactions, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof.
(e)All amounts due under this Section shall be payable not later than fifteen (15) days after written demand therefor.
SECTION 9.04.Successors and Assigns. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns
152


permitted hereby (including any Affiliate of any Issuing Bank that is a Qualifying Bank and issues any Letter of Credit), except that (i) no Borrower may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by any Borrower without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section.

(b)(i) Subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (b)(ii) below, any Lender may assign to one or more assignees (provided that, if no Event of Default is then occurring and continuing, such assignee is a Qualifying Bank, or, if it is a Non-Qualifying Bank, that after such assignment each Swiss Borrower would still be in compliance with the Swiss Non-Bank Rules) all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans at the time owing to it) with the prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed (it being understood and agreed that withholding consent in the case of an assignment or transfer to a Non-Qualifying Bank shall not be considered unreasonable)) of:
(A)the Company (provided that the Company shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received notice thereof); provided, further, that no consent of the Company shall be required for an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender which is a Qualifying Bank, an Approved Fund which is a Qualifying Bank or, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any other assignee;

(D)the Swingline Lender; provided that no consent of the Swingline Lender shall be required for an assignment of all or any portion of a Term Loan to a Qualfiying Bank.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the assignor with respect to any assignment that does not require the Company’s consent under the foregoing provisions shall nevertheless use commercially reasonable efforts to provide notice to the Company thereof promptly after such assignment; provided that the failure of any assignor to provide such notice of any assignment shall not affect the validity or effectiveness of such assignment.
(ii)Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:
(A)except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender (which, if no Event of Default is then occurring and continuing, is a Qualifying Bank) or an Approved Fund or an(which, if no Event of Default is then occurring and
153


continuing, is a Qualifying Bank) or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitment or Loans of any Class, the amount of the Commitment or Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than $5,000,000 (in the case of Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans) or $1,000,000 (in the case of a Term Loan) unless each of the Company and the Administrative Agent otherwise consent, provided that no such consent of the Company shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing;
(B)each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, provided that this clause shall not be construed to prohibit the assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations in respect of one Class of Commitments or Loans;
(C)the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent (x) an Assignment and Assumption or (y) to the extent applicable, an agreement incorporating an Assignment and Assumption by reference pursuant to a Platform as to which the Administrative Agent and the parties to the Assignment and Assumption are participants, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500, such fee to be paid by either the assigning Lender or the assignee Lender or shared between such Lenders; provided that, with respect to any assignment entered into pursuant to Section 9.02(e) in respect of any Non-Consenting Lender, (1) such assignment may become effective without the execution or delivery by such Non-Consenting Lender of an Assignment and Assumption (or, to the extent applicable, an agreement incorporating an Assignment and Assumption by reference pursuant to a Platform as to which the Administrative Agent and the parties to the applicable Assignment and Assumption are participants) and (2) such Non-Consenting Lender shall be deemed to have consented to and be bound by the terms of such Assignment and Assumption (or such other agreement incorporating an Assignment and Assumption by reference pursuant to a Platform as to which the Administrative Agent and the parties to the applicable Assignment and Assumption are participants), in each case, so long as (I) each of the other requirements set forth in Section 9.02(e) for such assignment are satisfied, including, without limitation, the payment in full of all outstanding Obligations owing to such Non-Consenting Lender and (II) such assignment becomes effective immediately prior to the effectiveness of the proposed amendment, waiver or consent that requires the consent of such Non-Consenting Lender; provided further that, following the effectiveness of any assignment described in the foregoing proviso, the other parties to such assignment agree to execute and deliver such documents necessary to evidence such assignment as reasonably requested by the applicable Non-Consenting Lender, provided that any such documents shall be without recourse to or warranty by the parties thereto.;
(D)the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire in which the assignee designates one or more credit contacts to whom all syndicate-level information (which may contain material non-public information about the Company and its Affiliates and their Related Parties or their respective securities) will be made available and who may receive such
154


information in accordance with the assignee’s compliance procedures and applicable laws, including Federal and state securities laws;
(E)the assignee shall not be (x) the Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company, (y) a Defaulting Lender or its Parent or (z) any natural person or any a company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural person or relative(s) thereof (any such Person described in this clause (E), an “Ineligible Institution”); and
(F)assignments to Lenders that will acquire a position of the Obligations of any Dutch Borrower shall at all times be to a Non-Public Lender.; and
(G)notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document, a transfer or assignment by a Lender under this Agreement (including any arrangements under Section 9.04(c) and (d)) may only be made if it would not result in any non-compliance with the Swiss Non-Bank Rules (it being agreed that each of the Administrative Agent and the Company may, without independent verification, rely on the status confirmation made by a new Lender), unless the transfer is made at a time when an Event of Default is continuing.
For the purposes of this Section 9.04(b), the term “Approved Fund” has the following meaning:
Approved Fund” means any Person (other than a natural person) that is engaged in making, purchasing, holding or investing in bank loans and similar extensions of credit in the ordinary course of its business and that is administered or managed by (a) a Lender, (b) an Affiliate of a Lender or (c) an entity or an Affiliate of an entity that administers or manages a Lender.
(iii)Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (b)(iv) of this Section, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.17A, 2.17B and 9.03). Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 9.04 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (c) of this Section.
(iv)The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of each Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitment of, and principal amount (and stated interest) of the Loans and LC Disbursements owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The
155


Register shall be available for inspection by the Company, any Issuing Bank and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
(v)Upon its receipt of (x) a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee or (y) to the extent applicable, an agreement incorporating an Assignment and Assumption by reference pursuant to a Platform as to which the Administrative Agent and the parties to the Assignment and Assumption are participants, the assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register; provided that if either the assigning Lender or the assignee shall have failed to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.05(c), 2.06(d) or (e), 2.07(b), 2.18(e) or 9.03(c), the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information therein in the Register unless and until such payment shall have been made in full, together with all accrued interest thereon. No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph.
(c)Any Lender may, without the consent of any Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or the Swingline Lender, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”), other than an Ineligible Institution, in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A), if no Event of Default is then occurring and continuing, (A) no Lender shall enter into any arrangement with another Person pursuant to this Section 9.04(c) under which such Lender substantially transfers its exposure under this Agreement to a Participant unless under such arrangement and at all times while such arrangement is in effect (i) the relationship between such Lender and the applicable Participant is that of a debtor and creditor (including in the bankruptcy or similar event of such Lender or any Borrower), (ii) the applicable Participant will have no proprietary interest in the benefit of this Agreement or in any monies received by such Lender under or in relation to this Agreement and (iii) the applicable Participant will under no circumstances (x) be subrogated to, or substituted in respect of, such Lender’s claims under this Agreement or (y) have otherwise any contractual relationship with, or rights against, any Borrower under, or in relation to, this Agreement, (B) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged;, (BC) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations; and (CD) the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 9.02(b) that affects such Participant. Each Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 2.17A and 2.17B (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 2.17(f) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.17(f) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section; provided that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Sections 2.18 and 2.19 as if it were an assignee under paragraph (b) of this Section; and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.15, 2.17, 2.17A or 2.17B, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such
156


entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 9.08 as though it were a Lender, provided such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.18(d) as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under this Agreement (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register to any Person (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any Commitments, Loans, Letters of Credit or its other obligations under any this Agreement) except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan, Letter of Credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
(d)Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including without limitation any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
SECTION 9.05.Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Loan Parties in the Loan Documents and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents and the making of any Loans and issuance of any Letters of Credit, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement or any other Loan Document is outstanding and unpaid or any Letter of Credit is outstanding and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17 and 9.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any provision hereof or thereof.
SECTION 9.06.Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness; Electronic Execution; Dutch Power of Attorney. This Agreement, the Amendment and Restatement Agreement and the other Loan Documents and any separate letter agreements with respect to (i) fees payable to the Administrative Agent and (ii) the reductions or increases of the Letter of Credit Commitment of any Issuing Bank constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement shall become effective on the Restatement Effective Date. The words “execution,” “signed,” “signature,” “delivery,” and words of like import in or relating to any document to be signed in
157


connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include Electronic Signatures, deliveries or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature, physical delivery thereof or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any applicable law, including the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, the New York State Electronic Signatures and Records Act, or any other similar state laws based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act. If a Dutch Borrower is represented by an attorney in connection with the signing and/or execution of this Agreement (including by way of accession to this Agreement) or any other agreement, deed or document referred to in or made pursuant to this Agreement, it is hereby expressly acknowledged and accepted by the other parties to this Agreement that the existence and extent of the attorney’s authority and the effects of the attorney’s exercise or purported exercise of his or her authority shall be governed by the laws of the Netherlands.
SECTION 9.07.Severability. Any provision of any Loan Document held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions thereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.
SECTION 9.08.Right of Setoff. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final and in whatever currency denominated) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of any Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor against any of and all of the Secured Obligations due from such entity to such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under the Loan Documents and although such obligations may be unmatured; provided, however, that the deposits of a Foreign Subsidiary and the obligations owed to a Foreign Subsidiary may only be set off and applied to the Secured Obligations of such Foreign Subsidiary or other Foreign Subsidiaries to the extent such set off and application would not cause a Deemed Dividend Problem or any other materially adverse tax consequence under applicable law to any Loan Party as determined by the Company in its commercially reasonable judgment acting in good faith and in consultation with its legal and tax advisors. The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender may have.
SECTION 9.09.Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process. (a) This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of New York.
(b)Each Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to any Loan Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to
158


this Agreement or any other Loan Document against any Loan Party or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.
(c)Each Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
(d)Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.01. Each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower irrevocably designates and appoints the Company, as its authorized agent, to accept and acknowledge on its behalf, service of any and all process which may be served in any suit, action or proceeding of the nature referred to in Section 9.09(b) in any federal or New York State court sitting in New York City. The Company hereby represents, warrants and confirms that the Company has agreed to accept such appointment (and any similar appointment by a UK Guarantor or a Subsidiary Guarantor which is a Foreign Subsidiary). Said designation and appointment shall be irrevocable by each such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower until all Loans, all reimbursement obligations, interest thereon and all other amounts payable by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall have been paid in full in accordance with the provisions hereof and thereof and such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall have been terminated as a Borrower hereunder pursuant to Section 2.24. Each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereby consents to process being served in any suit, action or proceeding of the nature referred to in Section 9.09(b) in any federal or New York State court sitting in New York City by service of process upon the Company as provided in this Section 9.09(d); provided that, to the extent lawful and possible, notice of said service upon such agent shall be mailed by registered or certified air mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to the Company and (if applicable to) such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower at its address set forth in the Borrowing Subsidiary Agreement to which it is a party or to any other address of which such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall have given written notice to the Administrative Agent (with a copy thereof to the Company). Each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all claim of error by reason of any such service in such manner and agrees that such service shall be deemed in every respect effective service of process upon such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower in any such suit, action or proceeding and shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be taken and held to be valid and personal service upon and personal delivery to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower. To the extent any Foreign Subsidiary Borrower has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether from service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution of a judgment, execution or otherwise), each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its obligations under the Loan Documents. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY).

Each Canadian Borrower shall promptly provide all such information, including supporting documentation and other evidence, as may be reasonably requested by any Lender or the Administrative Agent, or any prospective assign or participant of a Lender or the Administrative Agent, in order to comply with any applicable AML Legislation, whether now or hereafter in existence.
If the Administrative Agent has ascertained the identity of any Canadian Borrower or any authorized signatories of any Canadian Borrower for the purposes of applicable AML Legislation, then the Administrative Agent:
(i)    shall be deemed to have done so as an agent for each Lender, and this Agreement shall constitute a “written agreement” in such regard between each Lender and the Administrative Agent within the meaning of applicable AML Legislation; and
(ii)    shall provide to each Lender copies of all information obtained in such regard without any representation or warranty as to its accuracy or completeness.
Notwithstanding the preceding sentence and except as may otherwise be agreed in writing, each of the Lenders agrees that the Administrative Agent has no obligation to ascertain the identity of any Canadian Borrower or any authorized signatories of any Canadian Borrower on behalf of
161


any Lender, or to confirm the completeness or accuracy of any information it obtains from any Canadian Borrower or any such authorized signatory in doing so.
SECTION 9.14.Appointment for Perfection. Each Lender hereby appoints each other Lender as its agent for the purpose of perfecting Liens, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties, in assets which, in accordance with Article 9 of the UCC or any other applicable law can be perfected only by possession. Should any Lender (other than the Administrative Agent) obtain possession of any such Collateral, such Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent thereof, and, promptly upon the Administrative Agent’s request therefor shall deliver such Collateral to the Administrative Agent or otherwise deal with such Collateral in accordance with the Administrative Agent’s instructions.
SECTION 9.15.Releases of Subsidiary Guarantors.
(a)A Subsidiary Guarantor shall automatically be released from its obligations under the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement upon the consummation of any transaction permitted by this Agreement as a result of which such Subsidiary Guarantor ceases to be a Subsidiary; provided that, if so required by this Agreement, the Required Lenders shall have consented to such transaction and the terms of such consent shall not have provided otherwise. In connection with any termination or release pursuant to this Section, the Administrative Agent shall (and is hereby irrevocably authorized by each Lender to) execute and deliver to any Loan Party, at such Loan Party’s expense, all documents that such Loan Party shall reasonably request to evidence such termination or release. Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Administrative Agent.
(b)Further, the Administrative Agent may (and is hereby irrevocably authorized by each Lender to), upon the request of the Company, release any Subsidiary Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement if such Subsidiary Guarantor is no longer a Subsidiary.
(c)At such time as the principal and interest on the Loans, all LC Disbursements, the fees, expenses and other amounts payable under the Loan Documents and the other Secured Obligations (other than Swap Obligations, Banking Services Obligations, and other Obligations expressly stated to survive such payment and termination) shall have been paid in full, the Commitments shall have been terminated and no Letters of Credit shall be outstanding, the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement and all obligations (other than those expressly stated to survive such termination) of each Subsidiary Guarantor thereunder shall automatically terminate, all without delivery of any instrument or performance of any act by any Person.
SECTION 9.16.Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the interest rate applicable to any Loan, together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on such Loan under applicable law (collectively the “Charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the “Maximum Rate”) which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by the Lender holding such Loan in accordance with applicable law, the rate of interest payable in respect of such Loan hereunder, together with all Charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would have been payable in respect of such Loan but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to such Lender in respect of other Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount,
162


together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender.
SECTION 9.17.No Advisory or Fiduciary Responsibility. In connection with all aspects of each transaction contemplated hereby (including in connection with any amendment, waiver or other modification hereof or of any other Loan Document), each Borrower acknowledges and agrees that: (i) (A) the arranging and other services regarding this Agreement provided by the Lenders are arm’s-length commercial transactions between such Borrower and its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Lenders and their Affiliates, on the other hand, (B) such Borrower has consulted its own legal, accounting, regulatory and tax advisors to the extent it has deemed appropriate, and (C) such Borrower is capable of evaluating, and understands and accepts, the terms, risks and conditions of the transactions contemplated hereby and by the other Loan Documents; (ii) (A) each of the Lenders and their Affiliates is and has been acting solely as a principal and, except as expressly agreed in writing by the relevant parties, has not been, is not, and will not be acting as an advisor, agent or fiduciary for such Borrower or any of its Affiliates, or any other Person and (B) no Lender or any of its Affiliates has any obligation to such Borrower or any of its Affiliates with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby except, in the case of a Lender, those obligations expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents; and (iii) each of the Lenders and their respective Affiliates may be engaged in a broad range of transactions that involve interests that differ from those of such Borrower and its Affiliates, and no Lender or any of its Affiliates has any obligation to disclose any of such interests to such Borrower or its Affiliates. To the fullest extent permitted by law, each Borrower hereby waives and releases any claims that it may have against each of the Lenders and their Affiliates with respect to any breach or alleged breach of agency or fiduciary duty in connection with any aspect of any transaction contemplated hereby.
SECTION 9.18.Acknowledgement and Consent to Bail-In of Affected Financial Institutions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document or in any other agreement, arrangement or understanding among any such parties, each party hereto acknowledges that any liability of any Affected Financial Institution arising under any Loan Document, to the extent such liability is unsecured, may be subject to the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of the applicable Resolution Authority and agrees and consents to, and acknowledges and agrees to be bound by:
(a)the application of any Write-Down and Conversion Powers by the applicable Resolution Authority to any such liabilities arising hereunder which may be payable to it by any party hereto that is an Affected Financial Institution; and
(b)the effects of any Bail-In Action on any such liability, including, if applicable:
(i)a reduction in full or in part or cancellation of any such liability;
(ii)a conversion of all, or a portion of, such liability into shares or other instruments of ownership in such Affected Financial Institution, its parent undertaking, or a bridge institution that may be issued to it or otherwise conferred on it, and that such shares or other instruments of ownership will be accepted by it in lieu of any rights with respect to any such liability under this Agreement or any other Loan Document; or
(iii)the variation of the terms of such liability in connection with the exercise of the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of the applicable Resolution Authority.
SECTION 9.19.Certain ERISA Matters.
163


(a)Each Lender (x) represents and warrants, as of the date such Person became a party hereto, and (y) covenants, from the date such Person became a Lender party hereto to the date such Person ceases being a Lender party hereto, for the benefit of, the Administrative Agent and not, for the avoidance of doubt, to or for the benefit of any Borrower or any other Loan Party, that at least one of the following is and will be true:
(i)such Lender is not using “plan assets” (within the meaning of Section 3(42) of ERISA or otherwise) of one or more Benefit Plans with respect to such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments or this Agreement,
(ii)the transaction exemption set forth in one or more PTEs, such as PTE 84-14 (a class exemption for certain transactions determined by independent qualified professional asset managers), PTE 95-60 (a class exemption for certain transactions involving insurance company general accounts), PTE 90-1 (a class exemption for certain transactions involving insurance company pooled separate accounts), PTE 91-38 (a class exemption for certain transactions involving bank collective investment funds) or PTE 96-23 (a class exemption for certain transactions determined by in-house asset managers), is applicable with respect to such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement,
(iii)(A) such Lender is an investment fund managed by a “Qualified Professional Asset Manager” (within the meaning of Part VI of PTE 84-14), (B) such Qualified Professional Asset Manager made the investment decision on behalf of such Lender to enter into, participate in, administer and perform the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement, (C) the entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement satisfied the requirements of sub-sections (b) through (g) of Part I of PTE 84-14 and (D) to the best knowledge of such Lender, the requirements of subsection (a) of Part I of PTE 84-14 are satisfied with respect to such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement, or
(iv)such other representation, warranty and covenant as may be agreed in writing between the Administrative Agent, in its sole discretion, and such Lender.
(b)In addition, unless either (1) sub-clause (i) in the immediately preceding clause (a) is true with respect to a Lender or (2) a Lender has provided another representation, warranty and covenant in accordance with sub-clause (iv) in the immediately preceding clause (a), such Lender further (x) represents and warrants, as of the date such Person became a Lender party hereto, and (y) covenants, from the date such Person became a Lender party hereto to the date such Person ceases being a Lender party hereto, for the benefit of, the Administrative Agent and not, for the avoidance of doubt, to or for the benefit of any Borrower or any other Loan Party, that the Administrative Agent is not a fiduciary with respect to the assets of such Lender involved in such Lender’s entrance into, participation in, administration of and performance of the Loans, the Letters of Credit, the Commitments and this Agreement (including in connection with the reservation or exercise of any rights by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, any Loan Document or any documents related hereto or thereto).
SECTION 9.20.Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs. To the extent that the Loan Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for Swap Agreements or any
164


other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support “QFC Credit Support” and each such QFC a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Loan Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States):
In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Loan Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Loan Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that rights and remedies of the parties with respect to a Defaulting Lender shall in no event affect the rights of any Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.
For purposes of this Section 9.219.20, the following terms have the following meanings:
BHC Act Affiliate” of a party means an “affiliate” (as such term is defined under, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 1841(k)) of such party.
Covered Entity” means:
(i)a “covered entity” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 252.82(b);
(ii)a “covered bank” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 47.3(b); or
(iii)a “covered FSI” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 382.2(b).
Default Right” has the meaning assigned to that term in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. §§ 252.81, 47.2 or 382.1, as applicable.
QFC” has the meaning assigned to the term “qualified financial contract” in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 5390(c)(8)(D).
SECTION 9.21.Limitation for Swiss Borrowers
165


.
(a)If and to the extent a Swiss Borrower becomes liable under this Agreement or any other Loan Document for obligations of any other Loan Party (other than the wholly owned direct or indirect Subsidiaries of such Swiss Borrower) (the “Restricted Obligations”) and performing the relevant Restricted Obligations would not be permitted under Swiss corporate law then applicable, then payment under such Restricted Obligations shall be limited to the amount permitted to be paid under applicable Swiss law at the time or times performance of the relevant Restricted Obligation is due by or requested from such Swiss Borrower; provided that such limitation shall not (generally or definitively) release the relevant Swiss Borrower from its obligations in excess thereof, but merely postpone the performance date therefore until such times as performance is again permitted notwithstanding such limitation.
(b)In case a Swiss Borrower who must make a payment in respect of Restricted Obligations under this Agreement is obliged to withhold Swiss Withholding Tax in respect of such payment, such Swiss Borrower shall:
(i)procure that such payments can be made without deduction of Swiss Withholding Tax, or with deduction of Swiss Withholding Tax at a reduced rate, by discharging the liability to such tax by notification pursuant to applicable law (including double tax treaties) rather than payment of the tax;
(ii)if the notification procedure pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) above does not apply, deduct Swiss Withholding Tax at the rate of 35 per cent (or such other rate as in force from time to time), or if the notification procedure pursuant to sub-paragraph (i) above applies for a part of the Swiss Withholding Tax only, deduct Swiss Withholding Tax at the reduced rate resulting after the discharge of part of such tax by notification under applicable law, from any payment made by it in respect of Restricted Obligations and promptly pay any such taxes to the Swiss Federal Tax Administration;
(iii)notify the Administrative Agent that such notification, or as the case may be, deduction has been made and provide the Administrative Agent with evidence that such a notification of the Swiss Federal Tax Administration has been made or, as the case may be, such taxes deducted have been paid to the Swiss Federal Tax Administration;
(iv)in the case of a deduction of Swiss Withholding Tax:
(i)use its best efforts to ensure that any person other than a Lender which is entitled to a full or partial refund of the Swiss Withholding Tax deducted from such payment in respect of Restricted Obligations, will, as soon as possible after such deduction (y) request a refund of the Swiss Withholding Tax under applicable law (including tax treaties) and (z) pay to the Administrative Agent upon receipt any amounts so refunded; and
(ii)if a Lender is entitled to a full or partial refund of the Swiss Withholding Tax deducted from such payment, and if requested by the Administrative Agent, provide the Administrative Agent (on its behalf or on behalf of any Lender) those documents that are required by law and applicable tax treaties to be provided by the payer of such tax, for each relevant Lender, to prepare a claim for refund of Swiss Withholding Tax.
(c)If a Swiss Borrower is obliged to withhold Swiss Withholding Tax in accordance with Section 9.21(b) above, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to further enforce any obligations assumed by such Swiss Borrower and apply proceeds therefrom against the Restricted Obligations up to
166


an amount which is equal to that amount which would have been obtained if no withholding of Swiss Withholding Tax were required, whereby such further enforcements shall always be limited to the maximum amount permitted to be paid as set out in Section 9.21(a) above. For the avoidance of doubt, in accordance with Section 9.21(a), any obligation under this Section 9.21(c) that is in excess of the amount permitted to be paid under Swiss law shall only be postponed until such time or times as performance is again permitted under then applicable law.
(d)If and to the extent requested by the Administrative Agent and required and permitted under Swiss law, the relevant Swiss Borrower shall, and any parent company of such Swiss Borrower being a party to this Agreement shall procure that such Swiss Borrower will , promptly implement all such measures necessary and/or promptly procure the fulfilment of all prerequisites to allow the relevant Swiss Borrower to perform the Restricted Obligations with a minimum of limitations, including:
(i)preparation of an up-to-date audited balance sheet of the relevant Swiss Borrower;
(ii)confirmation of the auditors of the relevant Swiss Borrower that the relevant amount represents (the maximum of) freely distributable equity of the relevant Swiss Borrower;
(iii)approval by a shareholders meeting of the relevant Swiss Borrower of the relevant distribution of assets;
(iv)writing up or realizing any of its assets that are shown in its balance sheet with a book value that is significantly lower than the market value of the assets, in case of realization, however, only if such assets are not necessary for the relevant Swiss Borrower's business (nicht betriebsnotwendig); and
(v)reduction of its share capital/quota capital to the minimum allowed under then applicable law.
ARTICLE X

Cross-Guarantee
In order to induce the Lenders to extend credit to the other Borrowers hereunder, but subject to the last sentence of this Article X, each Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, the payment when and as due of the Secured Obligations of such other Borrowers. Each Borrower further agrees that the due and punctual payment of such Secured Obligations may be extended or renewed, in whole or in part, without notice to or further assent from it, and that it will remain bound upon its guarantee hereunder notwithstanding any such extension or renewal of any such Secured Obligation.
Each Borrower irrevocably and unconditionally jointly and severally agrees that if any obligation guaranteed by it is or becomes unenforceable, invalid or illegal, it will, as an independent and primary obligation, indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders immediately on demand against any cost, loss or liability they incur as a result of any Borrower not paying any amount which would, but for such unenforceability, invalidity or illegality, have been payable by it under this Article X on the date when it would have been due (but so that the amount payable by a Borrower under
167


this indemnity will not exceed the amount it would have had to pay under this Article X if the amount claimed had been recoverable on the basis of a guarantee).
Each Borrower waives presentment to, demand of payment from and protest to any Borrower of any of the Secured Obligations, and also waives notice of acceptance of its obligations and notice of protest for nonpayment. The obligations of each Borrower hereunder shall not be affected by (a) the failure of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy against any Borrower under the provisions of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or otherwise; (b) any extension or renewal of any of the Secured Obligations; (c) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or release from, any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement, or any other Loan Document or agreement; (d) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of any of the Secured Obligations; (e) the failure of the Administrative Agent to take any steps to perfect and maintain any security interest in, or to preserve any rights to, any security or collateral for the Secured Obligations, if any; (f) any change in the corporate, partnership or other existence, structure or ownership of any Borrower or any other guarantor of any of the Secured Obligations; (g) the enforceability or validity of the Secured Obligations or any part thereof or the genuineness, enforceability or validity of any agreement relating thereto or with respect to any collateral securing the Secured Obligations or any part thereof, or any other invalidity or unenforceability relating to or against any Borrower or any other guarantor of any of the Secured Obligations, for any reason related to this Agreement, any Swap Agreement, any Banking Services Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any provision of applicable law, decree, order or regulation of any jurisdiction purporting to prohibit the payment by such Borrower or any other guarantor of the Secured Obligations, of any of the Secured Obligations or otherwise affecting any term of any of the Secured Obligations; or (h) any other act, omission or delay to do any other act which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of such Borrower or otherwise operate as a discharge of a guarantor as a matter of law or equity or which would impair or eliminate any right of such Borrower to subrogation.
Each Borrower further agrees that its agreement hereunder constitutes a guarantee of payment when due (whether or not any bankruptcy or similar proceeding shall have stayed the accrual or collection of any of the Secured Obligations or operated as a discharge thereof) and not merely of collection, and waives any right to require that any resort be had by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in favor of any Borrower or any other Person.
The obligations of each Borrower hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, and shall not be subject to any defense or set-off, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever, by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of any of the Secured Obligations, any impossibility in the performance of any of the Secured Obligations or otherwise.
Each Borrower further agrees that its obligations hereunder shall constitute a continuing and irrevocable guarantee of all Secured Obligations of such other Borrowers now or hereafter existing and shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any Secured Obligation (including a payment effected through exercise of a right of setoff) is rescinded or is or must otherwise be restored or returned by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of any Borrower or otherwise (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by a Secured Party in its discretion).
168


In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right which the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may have at law or in equity against any Borrower by virtue hereof, upon the failure of any other Borrower to pay any Secured Obligation when and as the same shall become due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, each Borrower hereby promises to and will, upon receipt of written demand by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in cash an amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of such Secured Obligations then due, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon. Each Borrower further agrees that if payment in respect of any Secured Obligation shall be due in a currency other than Dollars and/or at a place of payment other than New York, Chicago or any other Applicable Payment Office and if, by reason of any Change in Law, disruption of currency or foreign exchange markets, war or civil disturbance or other event, payment of such Secured Obligation in such currency or at such place of payment shall be impossible or, in the reasonable judgment of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, disadvantageous to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in any material respect, then, at the election of the Administrative Agent, such Borrower shall make payment of such Secured Obligation in Dollars (based upon the applicable Equivalent Amount in effect on the date of payment) and/or in New York, Chicago or such other Applicable Payment Office as is designated by the Administrative Agent and, as a separate and independent obligation, shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank and any Lender against any losses or reasonable out-of-pocket expenses that it shall sustain as a result of such alternative payment.
Upon payment by any Borrower of any sums as provided above, all rights of such Borrower against any Borrower arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation or otherwise shall in all respects be subordinated and junior in right of payment to the prior indefeasible payment in full in cash of all the Secured Obligations owed by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders.
Nothing shall discharge or satisfy the liability of any Borrower hereunder except the full performance and payment of the Secured Obligations.
Each Qualified ECP Guarantor hereby jointly and severally absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably undertakes to provide such funds or other support as may be needed from time to time by each other Borrower to honor all of its obligations under this Article X or the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, as applicable, in respect of Specified Swap Obligations (provided, however, that each Qualified ECP Guarantor shall only be liable under this paragraph for the maximum amount of such liability that can be hereby incurred without rendering its obligations under this paragraph or otherwise under this Article X or the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, as applicable, voidable under applicable law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer, and not for any greater amount). The obligations of each Qualified ECP Guarantor under this Article X or the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement, as applicable, shall remain in full force and effect until a discharge of such Qualified ECP Guarantor’s Secured Obligations in accordance with the terms hereof and the other Loan Documents. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor intends that this paragraph constitute, and this paragraph shall be deemed to constitute, a “keepwell, support, or other agreement” for the benefit of each other Borrower for all purposes of Section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act.
Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement (including, without limitation, Article X) to the contrary, (a) no Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall be liable hereunder for any of the Loans made to, or any other Secured Obligation incurred solely by or on behalf of, any other Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor to the extent such liability for such Obligations would make such Foreign
169


Subsidiary Borrower an Affected Foreign Subsidiary, (b) no UK Borrower shall be required to guarantee or be liable for any Loans other than the Loans of the UK Borrowers nor shall any UK Borrower or any UK Guarantor be required to pledge or grant a security interest on any of their assets to secure any Loans (other than the pledge or grant of a security interest by a UK Borrower or a UK Guarantor of its applicable Equity Interests in its subsidiaries) and (c) the obligations and liabilities of any Swedish Borrower in its capacity as a Borrower, guarantor and/or security provider (each a “Swedish Obligor”) under the Loan Documents shall be limited, if (and only if) required by the provisions of the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. Aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)) regulating distribution of assets (Chapter 17, Section 1-4 (or their equivalents from time to time)) and unlawful loans, security, guarantees and financial assistance (Chapter 21, Section 1-5 (or their equivalents from time to time)), and it is understood that the liability of each Swedish Obligor under the Loan Documents only applies to the extent permitted by the above mentioned provisions of the Swedish Companies Act, provided that all steps available to each Swedish Obligor and its shareholders to authorize its obligations and liabilities under the Loan Documents have been taken.

Each Borrower incorporated or established in Jersey waives any right it may have (whether by virtue of the droit de discussion or division or otherwise) to require that any Secured Party, before enforcing this guarantee, takes any action, exercises any recourse or seeks a declaration of bankruptcy against any other Borrower or any other Person, makes any claim in a bankruptcy, liquidation, administration or insolvency of any other Borrower or any other Person or enforces or seeks to enforce any other right, claim, remedy or recourse against any other Loan Party or any other Person or that any Secured Party, in order to preserve any of its rights against a guarantor under this Article X or under any other Loan Document, joins another Borrower as a party to any proceedings against any Loan Party or any Loan Party as a party to any proceedings against a guarantor or takes any other procedural steps or that any Secured Party divides the liability of another Borrower under the guarantee given under this Article X or under any other Loan Document with any other Person.
ARTICLE XI

Collection Allocation Mechanism
(a) On the CAM Exchange Date, (i) the Commitments shall automatically and without further act be terminated as provided in Article VII, (ii) the principal amount of each Revolving Loan and LC Disbursement denominated in a Foreign Currency shall automatically and without any further action required, be converted into Dollars determined using the Exchange Rates calculated as of the CAM Exchange Date, equal to the Dollar Amount of such amount and on and after such date all amounts accruing and owed to any Revolving Lender in respect of such Obligations shall accrue and be payable in Dollars at the rates otherwise applicable hereunder and (iii) the Revolving Lenders shall automatically and without further act be deemed to have made reciprocal purchases of interests in the Designated Obligations such that, in lieu of the interests of each Revolving Lender in the particular Designated Obligations that it shall own as of such date and immediately prior to the CAM Exchange, such Revolving Lender shall own an interest equal to such Revolving Lender’s CAM Percentage in each Specified Obligation. Each Revolving Lender, each Person acquiring a participation from any Revolving Lender as contemplated by Section 9.04, and each Borrower hereby consents and agrees to the CAM Exchange. Each of the Borrowers and the Revolving Lenders agrees from time to time to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent all such promissory notes and other instruments and documents as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request to evidence and confirm the respective interests and obligations of the Revolving Lenders after giving effect to the CAM Exchange, and each Revolving Lender agrees to surrender any promissory notes originally received by it hereunder to the Administrative
170


Agent against delivery of any promissory notes so executed and delivered; provided that the failure of any Borrower to execute or deliver or of any Revolving Lender to accept any such promissory note, instrument or document shall not affect the validity or effectiveness of the CAM Exchange.
(b) As a result of the CAM Exchange, on and after the CAM Exchange Date, each payment received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any Loan Document in respect of the Designated Obligations shall be distributed to the Revolving Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective CAM Percentages (to be redetermined as of each such date of payment or distribution to the extent required by paragraph (c) below).
In the event that, after the CAM Exchange, the aggregate amount of the Designated Obligations shall change as a result of the making of an LC Disbursement by any Issuing Bank that is not reimbursed by any Borrower, then (i) each Revolving Lender shall, in accordance with Section 2.06(d), promptly purchase from such Issuing Bank the Dollar equivalent of a participation in such LC Disbursement in the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such LC Disbursement (without giving effect to the CAM Exchange), (ii) the Administrative Agent shall redetermine the CAM Percentages after giving effect to such LC Disbursement and the purchase of participations therein by the applicable Revolving Lenders, and the Revolving Lenders shall automatically and without further act be deemed to have made reciprocal purchases of interests in the Designated Obligations such that each Revolving Lender shall own an interest equal to such Revolving Lender’s CAM Percentage in each of the Designated Obligations and (iii) in the event distributions shall have been made in accordance with clause (i) of paragraph (b) above, the Revolving Lenders shall make such payments to one another in Dollars as shall be necessary in order that the amounts received by them shall be equal to the amounts they would have received had each LC Disbursement been outstanding immediately prior to the CAM Exchange. Each such redetermination shall be binding on each of the Revolving Lenders and their successors and assigns in respect of the Designated Obligations held by such Persons and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
Nothing in this Article shall prohibit the assignment by any Revolving Lender of interests in some but not all of the Designated Obligations held by it after giving effect to the CAM Exchange; provided, that in connection with any such assignment such Revolving Lender and its assignee shall enter into an agreement setting forth their reciprocal rights and obligations in the event of a redetermination of the CAM Percentages as provided in the immediately preceding paragraph.
