GUARANTEE
Section II.1.
Guarantee.
(a)
Each Guarantor unconditionally guarantees, jointly with the other Guarantors and severally, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, (i) the due and punctual payment of all Obligations of the Borrowers and the other Loan Parties, including (A) the principal of and premium, if any, and interest (including interest accruing during the pendency of any bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or other similar proceeding, regardless of whether allowed or allowable in such proceeding)

6609707.v9

4822-2187-5943 v2


EXHIBIT 10.2

on the Loans, when and as due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, upon one or more dates set for prepayment or otherwise, (B) each payment required to be made by the Borrowers under the Credit Agreement in respect of any Letter of Credit, when and as due, including payments in respect of reimbursement or disbursements, interest thereon and obligations to provide cash collateral, and (C) all other monetary obligations, including fees, costs, expenses and indemnities, whether primary, secondary, direct, contingent, fixed or otherwise (including monetary obligations incurred during the pendency of any bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or other similar proceeding, regardless of whether allowed or allowable in such proceeding), of the Loan Parties to Lender and any of Lender's Related Parties under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents; (ii) the due and punctual performance of all covenants, agreements, obligations and liabilities of the Loan Parties under or pursuant to the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents; (iii) the due and punctual payment of all Bank Product Obligations of any other Loan Party; and (iv) the due and punctual payment and performance of all Hedging Obligations owed by any other Loan Party to Lender or its Affiliates (all the monetary and other obligations referred to in the preceding clauses (i) through (iv) being collectively called the "Guaranteed Obligations"); provided, however, that in no event shall "Guaranteed Obligations" of any Guarantor include any Excluded Swap Obligation of such Guarantor. Each Guarantor further agrees that the Guaranteed Obligations may be extended or renewed, in whole or in part, without notice to or further assent from such Guarantor, and that such Guarantor will remain bound upon its guarantee notwithstanding any extension or renewal of any Guaranteed Obligations.

(b)
Each Guarantor further agrees that its guarantee constitutes a guarantee of payment when due and not of collection, and waives any right to require that any resort be had by Lender or any Secured Party to any of the security held for payment of the Guaranteed Obligations or to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of Lender or any Secured Party in favor of the Borrowers or any other Guarantor.
(c)
It is the intent of each Guarantor and Lender that the maximum obligations of the Guarantors hereunder shall be, but not in excess of:
(i)
in a case or proceeding commenced by or against any Guarantor under the provisions of Title 11 of the United States Code, 11 U.S.C. §§101 et seq., as amended and in effect from time to time (the "Bankruptcy Code"), on or within one year from the date on which any of the Guaranteed Obligations are incurred, the maximum amount which would not otherwise cause the Guaranteed Obligations (or any other obligations of such Guarantor owed to Lender or the Secured Parties) to be avoidable or unenforceable against such Guarantor under (i) Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code or (ii) any state fraudulent transfer or fraudulent conveyance act or statute applied in any such case or proceeding by virtue of Section 544 of the Bankruptcy Code; or
(ii)
in a case or proceeding commenced by or against any Guarantor under the Bankruptcy Code subsequent to one year from the date on which any of the Guaranteed Obligations are incurred, the maximum amount which would not otherwise cause the Guaranteed Obligations (or any other obligations of such Guarantor to Lender or the Secured Parties) to be avoidable or unenforceable against such Guarantor under any state fraudulent transfer or fraudulent conveyance act or statute applied in any such case or proceeding by virtue of Section 544 of the Bankruptcy Code; or
(iii)
in a case or proceeding commenced by or against any Guarantor under any law, statute or regulation other than the Bankruptcy Code (including any other bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, moratorium, readjustment of debt, dissolution, liquidation or similar debtor relief laws), the maximum amount which would not otherwise cause the Guaranteed Obligations (or any other obligations of such Guarantor to Lender or the Secured Parties) to be

6609707.v9

4822-2187-5943 v2


EXHIBIT 10.2

avoidable or unenforceable against such Guarantor under such law, statute or regulation, including any state fraudulent transfer or fraudulent conveyance act or statute applied in any such case or proceeding.

The substantive laws under which the possible avoidance or unenforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations (or any other obligations of such Guarantor to Lender or the Secured Parties) as may be determined in any case or proceeding shall hereinafter be referred to as the "Avoidance Provisions." To the extent set forth in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) of this subsection, but only to the extent that the Guaranteed Obligations would otherwise be subject to avoidance or found unenforceable under the Avoidance Provisions, if any Guarantor is not deemed to have received valuable consideration, fair value or reasonably equivalent value for the Guaranteed Obligations, or if the Guaranteed Obligations would render such Guarantor insolvent, or leave such Guarantor with an unreasonably small capital to conduct its business, or cause such Guarantor to have incurred debts (or to have intended to have incurred debts) beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature, in each case as of the time any of the Guaranteed Obligations are deemed to have been incurred under the Avoidance Provisions and after giving effect to the contribution by such Guarantor, the maximum Guaranteed Obligations for which such Guarantor shall be liable hereunder shall be reduced to that amount which, after giving effect thereto, would not cause the Guaranteed Obligations (or any other obligations of such Guarantor to Lender or the Secured Parties), as so reduced, to be subject to avoidance or unenforceability under the Avoidance Provisions.

 

This subsection is intended solely to preserve the rights of Lender and the Secured Parties hereunder to the maximum extent that would not cause the Guaranteed Obligations of such Guarantor to be subject to avoidance or unenforceability under the Avoidance Provisions, and neither the Grantors nor any other Person shall have any right or claim under this subsection as against Lender or any Secured Party that would not otherwise be available to such Person under the Avoidance Provisions.

 

(d)
Each Guarantor agrees that if the maturity of any of the Guaranteed Obligations is accelerated by bankruptcy or otherwise, such maturity shall also be deemed accelerated for the purpose of this guarantee without demand or notice to such Guarantor. The guarantee contained in this Article shall remain in full force and effect until all Guaranteed Obligations are irrevocably satisfied in full and all Commitments have been irrevocably terminated, notwithstanding that, from time to time during the term of the Credit Agreement, no Obligations may be outstanding.
Section II.2.
Payments. Each Guarantor hereby agrees and guarantees that payments hereunder will be paid to Lender without set-off or counterclaim in U.S. dollars at the office of Lender specified pursuant to the Credit Agreement.
ARTICLE III

Each Grantor (other than PubCo and Parent) hereby pledges, assigns and transfers to Lender, and grants to Lender, for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, a security interest in, all of the following property now owned or at any time hereafter acquired by such Grantor (other than PubCo and Parent) or in which such Grantor (other than PubCo and Parent) now has or at any time in the future may acquire any right, title or interest and whether now existing or hereafter coming into existence (collectively, the "Collateral"), as collateral security for the prompt and complete payment and performance when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of the Obligations (collectively, the "Secured Obligations"):

provided, that, (i) notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall "Secured Obligations" include any Excluded Swap Obligations of any Guarantor, (ii) notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lien or security interest is hereby granted on any Excluded Property, and, to the extent that any Collateral later becomes Excluded Property, the Lien granted hereunder will automatically be deemed to have been released and (iii) if and when any property shall cease to be Excluded Property, a Lien on and security interest in such property shall automatically be deemed granted therein.

EXHIBIT 10.2

For the avoidance of doubt, the parties hereto acknowledge that each of PubCo and Parent is an unsecured Guarantor hereunder and no covenant, representation, or other provision in this Agreement or any other Loan Document relating to the Collateral that is applicable to a Grantor shall be binding on PubCo or Parent unless and to the extent that such provision specifically references PubCo or Parent as being bound thereby.

 

Section III.2.

Neither Lender nor any other Secured Party shall have any obligation or liability under any Account, Chattel Paper or Payment Intangible (or any agreement giving rise thereto) by reason of or arising out of this Agreement or the receipt by Lender or any such other Secured Party of any payment relating to such Account, Chattel Paper or Payment Intangible pursuant hereto, nor shall Lender or any other Secured Party be obligated in any manner to perform any of the obligations of any Grantor under or pursuant to any Account, Chattel Paper or Payment Intangible (or any agreement giving rise thereto) to make any payment, to make any inquiry as to the nature or the sufficiency of any payment received by it or as to the sufficiency of any performance by any party under any Account, Chattel Paper or Payment Intangible (or any agreement giving rise thereto), to present or file any claim, to take any action to enforce any performance or to collect the payment of any amounts which may have been assigned to it or to which it may be entitled at any time or times.

[Intentionally Omitted].
Section VII.2.
Collections on Accounts. Subject to the cash management provisions set forth in the Credit Agreement, Lender hereby authorizes each Grantor to collect upon the Accounts, Instruments, Chattel Paper and Payment Intangibles subject to Lender's direction and control, and Lender may curtail or terminate said authority at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or Event of Default. Upon the request of Lender, each Grantor shall notify the applicable Account Debtors that the

6609707.v9

4822-2187-5943 v2


EXHIBIT 10.2

applicable Accounts, Chattel Paper and Payment Intangibles have been assigned to Lender for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties and that payments in respect thereof shall be made directly to Lender. Lender may at any time in its own name or in the name of others communicate with the applicable Account Debtors to verify with them to its satisfaction the existence, amount and terms of any applicable Accounts, Chattel Paper or Payment Intangibles.

Section VII.3.
Proceeds. As further set forth in the Credit Agreement (including Section 5.11 thereof), all payments of Accounts, Instruments, Chattel Paper and Payment Intangibles comprising a portion of the Collateral, when collected or received by each Grantor, and any other cash or non-cash Proceeds received by each Grantor upon the sale or other disposition of any Collateral, shall be forthwith (and, in any event, within two (2) Business Days) deposited by such Grantor in the exact form received, duly indorsed by such Grantor to Lender in a special collateral account maintained by Lender subject to withdrawal by Lender for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties only, as hereinafter provided, and, until so turned over, shall be held by such Grantor in trust for Lender for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties segregated from other funds of any such Grantor. Each deposit of any such Proceeds shall be accompanied by a report identifying in detail the nature and source of the payments included in the deposit. All Proceeds of the Collateral (including Proceeds constituting collections of Accounts, Chattel Paper, Instruments or Payment Intangibles comprising a portion of the Collateral) while held by Lender (or by any Grantor in trust for Lender for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties) shall continue to be collateral security for all of the Secured Obligations and shall not constitute payment thereof until applied as hereinafter provided. Lender shall apply all or any part of the funds or Proceeds on deposit in said special collateral account on account of the Secured Obligations in the order set forth in Section 5.11 (or Section 8.2 of the Credit Agreement at any time an Event of Default exists), and any part of such funds or Proceeds which Lender elects not so to apply and deems not required as collateral security for the Secured Obligations shall be paid over from time to time by Lender to each Grantor or to whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same.
Section VII.4.
UCC and Other Remedies.
(a)
If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, Lender, on behalf of the Secured Parties, may exercise in its discretion, in addition to all other rights, remedies, powers and privileges granted to them in this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, and in any other instrument or agreement securing, evidencing or relating to the Secured Obligations, all rights, remedies, powers and privileges of a secured party under the UCC (regardless of whether the UCC is in effect in the jurisdiction where such rights, remedies, powers or privileges are asserted) or any other applicable law or otherwise available at law or equity. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lender, without demand of performance or other demand, presentment, protest, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any notice required by law referred to below) to or upon any Grantor or any other Person (all and each of which demands, presentments, protests, advertisements and notices are hereby waived), may in such circumstances forthwith collect, receive, appropriate and realize upon the Collateral, or any part thereof, and/or may forthwith sell, lease, assign, give option or options to purchase, or otherwise dispose of and deliver the Collateral or any part thereof (or contract to do any of the foregoing), in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker's board or office of Lender or any other Secured Party or elsewhere upon such terms and conditions as it may deem advisable and at such prices as it may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. Lender or any other Secured Party shall have the right upon any such public sale or sales, and, to the extent permitted by law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase the whole or any part of the Collateral so sold, free of any right or equity of redemption in any Grantor, which right or equity is hereby waived and released. If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, each Grantor further agrees, at Lender's request, to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at places which Lender shall reasonably select, whether at such Grantor's premises or elsewhere. Any such sale or transfer by Lender either to itself or to any other Person shall be absolutely

6609707.v9

4822-2187-5943 v2


EXHIBIT 10.2

free from any claim of right by any Grantor, including any equity or right of redemption, stay or appraisal which such Grantor has or may have under any rule of law, regulation or statute now existing or hereafter adopted. Upon any such sale or transfer, Lender shall have the right to deliver, assign and transfer to the purchaser or transferee thereof the Collateral so sold or transferred. Lender shall apply the net proceeds of any action taken by it pursuant to this Section, after deducting all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind incurred in connection therewith or incidental to the care or safekeeping of any of the Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of Lender and the other Secured Parties hereunder, including reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements, to the payment in whole or in part of the Obligations, in accordance with Section 8.2 of the Credit Agreement, and only after such application and after the payment by Lender of any other amount required by any provision of law, including Section 9-615 of the UCC, need Lender account for the surplus, if any, to any Grantor. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Grantor waives all claims, damages and demands it may acquire against Lender or any other Secured Party arising out of the exercise by them of any rights hereunder. If any notice of a proposed sale or other disposition of Collateral shall be required by law, such notice shall be deemed reasonable and proper if given at least ten (10) days before such sale or other disposition.

(b)
In the event that Lender elects not to sell the Collateral, Lender retains its rights to dispose of or utilize the Collateral or any part or parts thereof in any manner authorized or permitted by law or in equity and to apply the proceeds of the same towards payment of the Secured Obligations. Each and every method of disposition of the Collateral described in this Agreement shall constitute disposition in a commercially reasonable manner. Lender may appoint any Person as agent to perform any act or acts necessary or incident to any sale or transfer of the Collateral.
Section VII.5.
.
Section VII.6.
Waiver; Deficiency. Each Grantor (including each Guarantor) waives and agrees not to assert any rights or privileges which it may acquire under the UCC or any other applicable law. Each Grantor (including each Guarantor) shall remain liable for any deficiency if the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay its Obligations or Guaranteed Obligations, as the case may be, and the fees and disbursements of any attorneys employed by Lender or any other Secured Party to collect such deficiency.
Section VII.7.
Non-Judicial Enforcement. Lender may enforce its rights hereunder without prior judicial process or judicial hearing, and, to the extent permitted by law, each Grantor (including each Guarantor) expressly waives any and all legal rights which might otherwise require Lender to enforce its rights by judicial process.

Section VIII.1.
Lender's Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact.
(a)
Each Grantor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Lender and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of such Grantor and in the name of such Grantor or in its own name, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, to take any and all reasonably appropriate action and to execute any and all documents and instruments which may be reasonably necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Grantor hereby gives Lender the power and right, on behalf of such Grantor, without notice to or assent by such Grantor, to do any or all of the following:

Anything in this subsection to the contrary notwithstanding, Lender agrees that it will not exercise any rights under the power of attorney provided for in this subsection unless and until an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing. Lender shall give the relevant Grantor notice of any action taken pursuant to this subsection when reasonably practicable; provided that Lender shall have no liability for the failure to provide any such notice.

 

(b)
If any Grantor fails to perform or comply with any of its agreements contained herein within the applicable grace periods, Lender, at its option, but without any obligation so to do, may perform or comply, or otherwise cause performance or compliance, with such agreement.
(c)
The expenses of Lender incurred in connection with actions undertaken as provided in this Section, together with interest thereon at the rate for Default Interest from the date of payment by

6609707.v9

4822-2187-5943 v2


EXHIBIT 10.2

Lender to the date reimbursed by the relevant Grantor, shall be payable by such Grantor to Lender on demand.

(d)
Each Grantor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof and in compliance herewith. All powers, authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until this Agreement is terminated and the security interests created hereby are released.
Section VIII.2.
Duty of Lender. Lender's sole duty with respect to the custody, safekeeping and physical preservation of the Collateral in its possession, under Section 9-207 of the UCC or otherwise, shall be to deal with it in the same manner as Lender deals with similar property for its own account, and Lender shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Collateral in its possession if the Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which comparable secured parties accord comparable collateral. Neither Lender, any other Secured Party nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon any of the Collateral or for any delay in doing so or shall be under any obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Collateral upon the request of any Grantor or any other Person or to take any other action whatsoever with regard to the Collateral or any part thereof. The powers conferred on Lender and the other Secured Parties hereunder are solely to protect Lender's and the other Secured Parties' interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon Lender or any other Secured Party to exercise any such powers. Lender and the other Secured Parties shall be accountable only for amounts that they actually receive as a result of the exercise of such powers, and neither they nor any of their officers, directors, employees or agents shall be responsible to any Grantor for any act or failure to act hereunder, except for their own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable judgment. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Lender shall be under no duty whatsoever to make or give any presentment, notice of dishonor, protest, demand for performance, notice of non-performance, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of acceleration, or other notice or demand in connection with any Collateral, or to take any steps necessary to preserve any rights against any Grantor or other Person or ascertaining or taking action with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders or other matters relative to any Collateral, whether or not it has or is deemed to have knowledge of such matters. Each Grantor, to the extent permitted by applicable law, waives any right of marshaling in respect of any and all Collateral, and waives any right to require Lender or any other Secured Party to proceed against any Grantor or other Person, exhaust any Collateral or enforce any other remedy which Lender or any other Secured Party now has or may hereafter have against any Grantor or other Person.
Section VIII.3.
Filing of Financing Statements. Pursuant to the UCC and any other applicable law, each Grantor (other than PubCo and Parent) authorizes Lender, its counsel or its representative, at any time and from time to time, to file or record financing statements, continuation statements, amendments thereto and other filing or recording documents or instruments with respect to the Collateral without the signature of such Grantor in such form and in such offices as Lender reasonably determines appropriate to perfect the security interests of Lender under this Agreement. Additionally, each Grantor (other than PubCo and Parent) authorizes Lender, its counsel or its representative, at any time and from time to time, to file or record such financing statements that describe the collateral covered thereby as "all assets of the Grantor", "all personal property of the Grantor" or words of similar effect. A photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement shall be sufficient as a financing statement or other filing or recording document or instrument for filing or recording in any jurisdiction.
Section VIII.4.
Authority of Lender. Each Grantor acknowledges that the rights and responsibilities of Lender under this Agreement with respect to any action taken by Lender or the exercise or non-exercise by Lender of any option, voting right, request, judgment or other right or remedy provided for herein or resulting or arising out of this Agreement shall, as between Lender and the other Secured

EXHIBIT 10.2

Parties, be governed by the Credit Agreement and by such other agreements with respect thereto as may exist from time to time among them, but, as between Lender and the Grantors, Lender shall be conclusively presumed to be acting as agent for the Secured Parties with full and valid authority so to act or refrain from acting, and no Grantor shall be under any obligation, or entitlement, to make any inquiry respecting such authority.

ARTICLE IX


SUBORDINATION OF INDEBTEDNESS
Section IX.1.
Subordination of All Guarantor Claims. As used herein, the term "Guarantor Claims" shall mean all debts and obligations of the Borrowers or any other Grantor (including Guarantors) to any Grantor (including Guarantors), whether such debts and obligations now exist or are hereafter incurred or arise, or whether the obligation of the debtor thereon be direct, contingent, primary, secondary, several, joint and several, or otherwise, and irrespective of whether such debts or obligations be evidenced by note, contract, open account, or otherwise, and irrespective of the Person or Persons in whose favor such debts or obligations may, at their inception, have been or may hereafter be created, or the manner in which they have been or may hereafter be acquired. After the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, no Grantor shall receive or collect, directly or indirectly, from any obligor in respect thereof any amount upon the Guarantor Claims.
Section IX.2.
Claims in Bankruptcy. In the event of receivership, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, debtor's relief or other insolvency proceedings involving any Grantor, Lender on behalf of the Secured Parties shall have the right to prove their claim in any proceeding, so as to establish their rights hereunder and receive directly from the receiver, trustee or other court custodian dividends and payments which would otherwise be payable upon Guarantor Claims. Each Grantor hereby assigns such dividends and payments to Lender for the benefit of the Secured Parties for application against the Secured Obligations as provided under Section 8.2 of the Credit Agreement. Should Lender or any other Secured Party receive, for application upon the Secured Obligations, any such dividend or payment which is otherwise payable to any Grantor, and which, as between such Grantor, shall constitute a credit upon the Guarantor Claims, then upon payment in full of the Secured Obligations and termination of all Commitments, the intended recipient shall become subrogated to the rights of Lender and the other Secured Parties to the extent that such payments to Lender and the other Secured Parties on the Guarantor Claims have contributed toward the liquidation of the Secured Obligations, and such subrogation shall be with respect to that proportion of the Secured Obligations which would have been unpaid if Lender and the other Secured Parties had not received dividends or payments upon the Guarantor Claims.
Section IX.3.
Payments Held in Trust. In the event that, notwithstanding Section 9.1 and Section 9.2, any Grantor should receive any funds, payments, claims or distributions which are prohibited by such Sections, then it agrees (a) to hold in trust for Lender and the other Secured Parties an amount equal to the amount of all funds, payments, claims or distributions so received, and (b) that it shall have absolutely no dominion over the amount of such funds, payments, claims or distributions except to pay them promptly to Lender, for the benefit of the Secured Parties; and each Grantor covenants promptly to pay the same to Lender.
Section IX.4.
Liens Subordinate. Each Grantor agrees that, until the Secured Obligations are paid in full and all Commitments have terminated, any Liens securing payment of the Guarantor Claims shall be and remain inferior and subordinate to any Liens securing payment of the Secured Obligations, regardless of whether such encumbrances in favor of such Grantor, Lender or any other Secured Party presently exist or are hereafter created or attach. Without the prior written consent of Lender, no Grantor, during the period in which any of the Secured Obligations are outstanding or any of the Commitments are

6609707.v9

4822-2187-5943 v2


EXHIBIT 10.2

in effect, shall (a) exercise or enforce any creditor's right it may have against any debtor in respect of the Guarantor Claims, or (b) foreclose, repossess, sequester or otherwise take steps or institute any action or proceeding (judicial or otherwise, including the commencement of or joinder in any liquidation, bankruptcy, rearrangement, debtor's relief or insolvency proceeding) to enforce any Lien held by it.

Section IX.5.
Notation of Records. Upon the request of Lender, all promissory notes and all accounts receivable ledgers or other evidence of the Guarantor Claims accepted by or held by any Grantor shall contain a specific written notice thereon that the indebtedness evidenced thereby is subordinated under the terms of this Agreement.

The rights, remedies, powers and privileges provided herein are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, remedies, powers and privileges provided by law.

Section X.3.
Payment of Expenses, Indemnities.
(a)
Each Grantor agrees to pay or promptly reimburse Lender and each other Secured Party for all advances, charges, costs and expenses (including all costs and expenses of holding, preparing for sale and selling, collecting or otherwise realizing upon the Collateral and all attorneys' fees, legal expenses and court costs) incurred by any Secured Party in connection with the exercise of its respective rights and remedies hereunder, including any advances, charges, costs and expenses that may be incurred in any effort to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement or any obligation of any Grantor in respect of the Collateral or in connection with (i) the preservation of the Lien of, or the rights of Lender or any other Secured Party under, this Agreement, (ii) any actual or attempted sale, lease, disposition, exchange, collection, compromise, settlement or other realization in respect of, or care of, the Collateral, including all such costs and expenses incurred in any bankruptcy, reorganization, workout or other similar proceeding, or (iii) collecting against such Grantor under the guarantee contained in Article II or otherwise enforcing or preserving any rights under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which such Grantor is a party.

Section X.6.
Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.
Section X.7.
Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument, and any of the parties hereto may execute this Agreement by signing any such counterpart. Delivery of an executed counterpart to this Agreement by facsimile transmission or by electronic mail in pdf format shall be as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart hereof.
Section X.8.
Survival.

To the extent that any payments on the Secured Obligations or proceeds of any Collateral are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid to a trustee, debtor in possession, receiver or other Person under any bankruptcy law, common law or equitable cause, then, to such extent, the Secured Obligations so satisfied shall be revived and continue as if such payment or proceeds had not been received and Lender's and the other Secured Parties' Liens, security interests, rights, powers and remedies under this Agreement and each other applicable Collateral Document shall continue in full force and effect. In such event, each applicable Collateral Document shall be automatically reinstated and each Grantor shall take such action as may be reasonably requested by Lender and the other Secured Parties to effect such reinstatement.

(ii)

Each Grantor warrants and agrees that each of the waivers and consents set forth in this Agreement are made voluntarily and unconditionally after consultation with outside legal counsel and with full knowledge of their significance and consequences, with the understanding that events giving rise to any defense or right waived may diminish, destroy or otherwise adversely affect rights which such Grantor otherwise may have against any other Grantor, Lender, the other Secured Parties or any other Person or against any Collateral. If, notwithstanding the intent of the parties that the terms of this Agreement shall control in any and all circumstances, any such waivers or consents are determined to be unenforceable under applicable law, such waivers and consents shall be effective to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Section X.14.
Additional Grantors. Each Person that is required to become a party to this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.12 of the Credit Agreement and is not a signatory hereto shall become a Grantor for all purposes of this Agreement upon execution and delivery by such Person of a Joinder Agreement in the form of Annex I.
Section X.15.
Set-Off. Each Grantor agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of set-off, bankers' lien or counterclaim a Secured Party may otherwise have, each Secured Party shall have the right and be entitled (after consultation with Lender), at its option, to offset (i) balances held by it or by any of its Affiliates for account of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries at any of its offices, in dollars or in any other currency, and (ii) Obligations then due and payable to such Secured Party (or any Affiliate of such Secured Party), which are not paid when due, in which case it shall promptly notify the Borrowers and Lender thereof; provided that such Secured Party's failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof.

EXHIBIT 10.2

Section X.16.
Releases.
(a)
Release Upon Payment in Full. Upon the complete payment in full of all Secured Obligations and the termination of the Credit Agreement, the Letters of Credit and all Commitments, Lender, at the written request and expense of the Borrowers, will promptly release, reassign and transfer the Collateral to the Grantors, without recourse, representation, warranty or other assurance of any kind, and declare this Agreement to be of no further force or effect. The grant of the security interest hereunder and all of the rights, powers and remedies in connection herewith shall remain in full force and effect until Lender has (i) retransferred and delivered all of the Collateral in its possession to the Grantors, and (ii) executed a written release or termination statement and reassigned to the Grantors without recourse or warranty any remaining Collateral and all rights conveyed hereby.
(b)
Further Assurances. If any of the Collateral shall be sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of by any Grantor in a transaction permitted by the Credit Agreement, then Lender, at the request and sole expense of such Grantor, shall promptly execute and deliver to such Grantor all releases or other documents reasonably necessary for the release of the Liens created hereby on such Collateral of such Grantor, made without recourse, representation, warranty or other assurance of any kind. At the request and sole expense of the Borrowers, a Grantor shall be released from its obligations hereunder in the event that all the Capital Stock of such Grantor shall be sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of in a transaction expressly permitted by the Credit Agreement; provided that the Borrowers shall have delivered to Lender, at least ten (10) Business Days prior to the date of the proposed release, a written request for release identifying the relevant Grantor and the terms of the sale or other disposition in reasonable detail, including the price thereof and any expenses in connection therewith, together with a certification by the Borrowers stating that such transaction is in compliance with the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
(c)
Retention in Satisfaction. Except as may be expressly applicable pursuant to Section 9-620 of the UCC, no action taken or omission to act by Lender or the other Secured Parties hereunder, including any exercise of voting or consensual rights or any other action taken or inaction, shall be deemed to constitute a retention of the Collateral in satisfaction of the Secured Obligations or otherwise to be in full satisfaction of the Secured Obligations, and the Secured Obligations shall remain in full force and effect, until Lender and the other Secured Parties shall have applied payments (including collections from Collateral) towards the Secured Obligations in the full amount then outstanding or until such subsequent time as is provided in subsection (a) of this Section.
Section X.17.
Reinstatement. The obligations of each Grantor under this Agreement (including with respect to the guarantee contained in Article II and the provision of collateral herein) shall continue to be effective, or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any of the Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned by Lender or any other Secured Party upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation or reorganization of the Borrowers or any other Grantor, or upon or as a result of the appointment of a receiver, intervenor or conservator of, or trustee or similar officer for, the Borrowers or any other Grantor or any substantial part of its property, or otherwise, all as though such payments had not been made.
Section X.18.
Acceptance. Each Grantor hereby expressly waives notice of acceptance of this Agreement, acceptance on the part of Lender and the other Secured Parties being conclusively presumed by their request for this Agreement and delivery of the same to Lender.
Section X.19.
Keepwell. 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 Loan Party to honor all of its obligations under this Guaranty and Security Agreement in respect of Swap Obligations (provided, however, that each Qualified ECP Guarantor

EXHIBIT 10.2

shall only be liable under this Section 10.19 for the maximum amount of such liability that can be hereby incurred without rendering its obligations under this Section 10.19, or otherwise under this Guaranty, as it relates to such other Loan Party, 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 Section shall remain in full force and effect until this Agreement has been terminated pursuant to Section 10.16(a). Each Qualified ECP Guarantor intends that this Section 10.19 constitute, and this Section 10.19 shall be deemed to constitute, a "keepwell, support, or other agreement" for the benefit of each other Loan Party for all purposes of Section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act.
