ARTICLE II
COMMITMENTS AND BORROWING PROCEDURES

SECTION 2.1. Commitment
On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement (including Article V), each Lender severally agrees to make its portion of the Loan pursuant to its Commitment described in Section 2.2. No Lender's obligation to make its portion of the Loan shall be affected by any other Lender's failure to make its portion of the Loan.
SECTION 2.2. Commitment of the Lenders
(a)    Each Lender will make its portion of the Loan available to the Borrower in accordance with Section 2.4 either two (2) Business Days prior to the delivery of the Purchased Vessel to the Borrower under the Construction Contract (where the Loan is to be denominated in Dollars) or one (1) Business Day prior to the delivery of the Purchased Vessel to the Borrower under the Construction Contract (where the Loan is to be denominated in EUR). The commitment of each Lender described in this Section 2.2 (herein referred to as its "Commitment") shall be the commitment of such Lender to make available to the Borrower its portion of the Loan hereunder expressed as the initial amount set forth opposite such Lender's name on its signature page attached hereto or, in the case of any Lender that becomes a Lender pursuant to an assignment pursuant to Section 11.11.1, the amount set forth as such Lender's Commitment in the related Lender Assignment Agreement, in each case as such amount may be reduced from time to time pursuant to Section 2.3 or reduced or increased from time to time pursuant to assignments by or to such Lender pursuant to Section 11.11.1.
(b)    Each Lender's Commitment shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the Commitment Termination Date if the Purchased Vessel is not delivered to the Borrower prior to such date and (ii) the delivery to the Borrower of the Purchased Vessel.
(c)    If any Lender shall default in its obligations under Section 2.1, the Facility Agent shall, at the request of the Borrower or the Guarantor, use reasonable efforts to assist the Borrower and the Guarantor in finding a bank or financial institution acceptable to the Borrower and the Guarantor to replace such Lender.
Page 31

SECTION 2.3. Voluntary Reduction of Commitments
(a)    The Borrower may at any time terminate, or from time to time partially reduce, the Commitments upon written notice to the Facility Agent setting forth the amount of the reduction in the Commitments (the "Reduction Notice"). The requested reduction shall be effective two Business Days after the date of delivery of the Reduction Notice and shall be applied to the respective Commitments of the Lenders pro rata according to the amounts of their respective Commitments immediately prior to giving effect to such reduction.
(b)    If the Reduction Notice is delivered by the Borrower on or prior to the Election Date, the Borrower shall not incur any liability to make any payments pursuant to Section 4.4 or to incur any other indemnity or compensation obligation. If the Reduction Notice is delivered by the Borrower after the Election Date, the Borrower shall either (i) pay such compensation to the relevant Lender as required by, and in accordance with, Section 4.4 to the extent such Lender incurs a loss as set out in Section 4.4 or (ii) extend the Disbursement Date to a date that falls at least 65 days after the Reduction Notice was first delivered by the Borrower. In the event that the Borrower elects the option under the foregoing clause (ii), the Borrower shall deliver a Loan Request to the Facility Agent in accordance with Section 2.4(a), and the proposed Disbursement Date set out in such Loan Request shall be a date that falls at least 65 days after the Reduction Notice was first delivered by the Borrower.
Where the Commitments are terminated or reduced pursuant to this Section 2.3, the Borrower shall pay to the Facility Agent and the Lenders any fees and commissions that have accrued to but excluding the date of termination or partial reduction (but, in the case of a partial reduction of Commitments, only in respect of the amount of the partial reduction). Any such payment shall be made on the second (2nd) Business Day following receipt by the Borrower of an invoice setting forth the accrued fees and commissions so payable.
SECTION 2.4. Borrowing Procedure

(b)    The Facility Agent shall promptly notify each Lender of any Loan Request by forwarding a copy thereof to each Lender, together with its attachments.

To the extent funds are so received from the Lenders, the Facility Agent shall, without any set-off or counterclaim, make such funds available to the Borrower on the Business Day specified in the Loan Request by wire transfer of same day funds in accordance with Section 2.4(c) below.
(c)    If the Loan is denominated in EUR, the Facility Agent shall advance the Loan proceeds to the EUR Pledged Account.

(d)    Upon the date of delivery to the Borrower of the Purchased Vessel, the Facility Agent shall direct that moneys standing to the credit of the Pledged Accounts shall, in the manner set out in the Loan Request and in accordance with the requirements and provisions of the Pledge Agreement, be disbursed as follows:
i.    in EUR, to the account of the Builder, as designated by the Builder and identified by the Borrower in the Loan Request, to the extent necessary to meet the final instalment of the Contract Price (including any portion thereof attributable to the Buyer's Allowance); and
ii.    
A.    if the Loan is denominated in Dollars, in Dollars, (y) to Hermes in payment of the Second Fee; and (z) to the account of the Borrower, as
Page 33

designated by the Borrower and identified by the Borrower in the Loan Request, in reimbursement of the First Fee and in respect of any additional amounts standing to the Dollar Pledged Account as of the date of such disbursement; or
B.    if the Loan is denominated in EUR, in EUR, to the account of the Borrower, as designated by the Borrower and identified by the Borrower in the Loan Request, in reimbursement of the Hermes EUR Equivalent of the First Fee and the Second Fee,
    and such moneys shall be so disbursed on the said date of delivery.
(e)    At any time after the Effective Date, but no later than the Election Date, the Borrower may elect, by written notice delivered to the Facility Agent substantially in the form of Exhibit F hereto, to denominate the Loan in EUR. Such election will be irrevocable. The Facility Agent will notify the Lenders of any election made under this Section 2.4(e).
SECTION 2.5. Funding
Each Lender may, if it so elects, fulfil its obligation to make or continue its portion of the Loan hereunder by causing a branch or Affiliate (or an international banking facility created by such Lender) other than that indicated next to its signature to this Agreement or, as the case may be, in the relevant Lender Assignment Agreement, to make or maintain such portion of the Loan; provided that such portion of the Loan shall nonetheless be deemed to have been made and to be held by such Lender, and the obligation of the Borrower to repay such portion of the Loan shall nevertheless be to such Lender for the account of such foreign branch, Affiliate or international banking facility; provided, further, that the Borrower shall not be required to pay any amount under Sections 4.2(c), 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay had the Lender not caused such branch or Affiliate (or international banking facility) to make or maintain such portion of the Loan.
SECTION 2.6. Nomination of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. as Borrower
(a)    Silversea Cruise Holding Ltd. and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. may, by written notice to the Facility Agent delivered on or prior to the Election Date, nominate Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. to be the borrower under this Agreement.

(b)    If, on the date of delivery to the Borrower of the Purchased Vessel, the outstanding principal amount of the Loan exceeds the US Dollar Maximum Loan Amount or, as the case may be, the Maximum Loan Amount if an election is made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e) (as a result of a reduction in the Contract Price after the Disbursement Date and before the delivery of the Purchased Vessel), the Borrower shall repay the Loan in an amount equal to such excess within two (2) Business Days after the date of delivery to the Borrower of the Purchased Vessel. Any such partial prepayment shall be applied pro rata in satisfaction of the remaining scheduled repayment instalments of the Loan.

ii.    shall, immediately upon any acceleration of the repayment of the instalments of the Loan pursuant to Section 8.2 or 8.3 or the mandatory prepayment of the Loan pursuant to Section 9.2, repay the Loan.

Interest calculated at the Fixed Rate or the Floating Rate shall be payable semi-annually in arrears on the Repayment Dates. The Loan shall bear interest for each Interest Period, from and including the first day of such Interest Period up to but excluding the last day of such Interest Period, at the interest rate determined as applicable to the Loan for such Interest Period. All interest shall be calculated on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over a year comprised of 360 days.

(i)    By written notice to the Facility Agent delivered on or before the Election Date, the Borrower may, subject to the prior administrative approval of KfW acting on the instructions of the Federal Republic of Germany and where the Loan is to be denominated in EUR the election pursuant to Section 2.4(e) has been made before the date of such written notice, elect, without incurring any liability to make any payments pursuant to Section 4.4 or any other indemnity or compensation obligation, to pay interest on the Loan at the percentage rate per annum (the KfW Fixed Rate) equal to the aggregate of:
A.    the weighted average rate of interest (and having regard to the Percentage of the Commitment of each Lender) at which KfW (on behalf of each Option A Lender) and each Option B Lender is able to hedge its respective cost and fund its Commitment having regard to the currency and funding and payment profile of the Loan (and on the basis that the hedging by KfW shall be required to be approved by the Federal Republic of Germany), but which rate of interest shall, for this purpose, be neither a rate which is either (1) lower than (if an election has been made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e)) the EUR CIRR Floor, otherwise, the USD CIRR Floor or, (2) higher
Page 38

than (if an election has been made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e)) the EUR CIRR Cap, otherwise, the USD CIRR Cap; and
B.    the applicable Margin.
(ii)    In connection with the option to elect the KfW Fixed Rate set out above, at any time on or before the Election Date, the Borrower shall be entitled to consult with the Facility Agent and request that the Facility Agent obtains indicative quotes of the KfW Fixed Rate at or around the time of any such request and such indicative quotes (based on the relevant information provided by KfW and each Option B Lender) shall be forwarded by the Facility Agent to the Borrower. Each Option B Lender agrees to provide to the Facility Agent and KfW, promptly upon request, sufficient information and indicative rates of interest in relation to its hedging arrangements contemplated by this Section 3.4.1(b) to enable the indicative KfW Fixed Rate to be provided to the Borrower pursuant to this Section 3.4.1(b).
(c)    If, on or before the Election Date, the Borrower has neither elected the KfW Fixed Rate nor the Floating Rate in accordance with Section 3.4.1(b) above or Section 3.4.2 below, then it is acknowledged and agreed that on the date falling 64 days prior to the actual Disbursement Date (or, if such date is not a Business Day, the next Business Day following that date), the CIRR will be set by KfW (acting on the instructions of the Federal Republic of Germany in its sole discretion), with the CIRR to be a rate which is (i) equal to or higher than the USD CIRR Floor or, if an election has been made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e), the EUR CIRR Floor and (ii) equal to or lower than the USD CIRR Cap or, if an election has also been made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e), the EUR CIRR Cap. The Facility Agent shall notify the Borrower in writing by no later than the next Business Day of the CIRR so set by KfW. If notwithstanding the above arrangements, KfW does not set a CIRR on the date referred to above, then the USD CIRR Cap or, if an election has also been made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e), the EUR CIRR Cap shall be set as the CIRR for the purpose of the Fixed Rate.
SECTION 3.4.2. Election of Floating Rate.
(a)    At any time prior to the Disbursement Date, and provided that the Borrower has not elected the KfW Fixed Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.1(b), the Borrower may elect to pay interest on the Loan at the Floating Rate by written notice (the "Floating Rate Election Notice") to the Facility Agent. If the Floating Rate Election Notice is delivered by the Borrower on or prior to the Election Date, the Borrower shall not incur any liability to make any payments pursuant to Section 4.4 or to incur any other indemnity or compensation obligation. If the Floating Rate Election Notice is delivered by the Borrower after the Election Date, the Borrower shall either (i) pay such compensation to the relevant Lender as required by, and in accordance with,
Page 39

Section 4.4 to the extent such Lender incurs a loss as set out in Section 4.4 or (ii) extend the Disbursement Date to a date that falls at least 65 days after the Floating Rate Election Notice was first delivered by the Borrower. In the event that the Borrower elects the option under the foregoing clause (ii), the Borrower shall deliver a Loan Request to the Facility Agent in accordance with Section 2.4(a), and the proposed Disbursement Date set out in such Loan Request shall be a date that falls at least 65 days after the Floating Rate Election Notice was first delivered by the Borrower.
(b)    If the Borrower has not elected the Floating Rate prior to the Disbursement Date as permitted by Section 3.4.2(a), the Borrower may elect, by written notice to the Facility Agent no later than 2:00 p.m. Frankfurt time 32 days prior to the end of an Interest Period and subject to Section 4.4, to pay interest on the Loan for the remainder of the term of the Loan at the Floating Rate, with effect from the end of that Interest Period.
(c)    
(i)    If the Loan is denominated in Dollars and the Borrower has elected the Floating Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.2(a), provided that the Borrower has not elected the KfW Fixed Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.1(b), Interest Periods shall be for a duration of 6 months.
(ii)    If the Loan is denominated in EUR and the Borrower has elected the Floating Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.2(a), provided that the Borrower has not elected the KfW Fixed Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.1(b), Interest Periods shall be for a duration of 6 months.
(d)    Any election made under any of Section 3.4.2(a) or Section 3.4.2(b) may only be made one time during the term of the Loan and shall be irrevocable.
SECTION 3.4.3. Conversion to Floating Rate.
If, during any Interest Period, and where interest on the Loan is determined at the Fixed Rate, the CIRR Agreement in effect with any Lender is terminated for any reason (other than as a result of the negligence or wilful misconduct of such Lender), then the portion of the Loan held by such Lender shall convert to a Floating Rate Loan on the last day of such Interest Period, and the Borrower shall pay interest on such portion of the Loan at the Floating Rate on such portion for the remainder of the term of the Loan.
Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, the Borrower shall not be obligated to make any indemnity or compensation payment to any Lender in connection with any conversion to the Floating Rate unless (a) such conversion is a result of an election by the Borrower pursuant to Section 3.4.2 or (b) such conversion occurs as a result of any acceleration of the Loan due to the occurrence of an Event of Default.
Page 40

SECTION 3.4.4. Post-Maturity Rates.
After the date any principal amount of the Loan is due and payable (whether on any Repayment Date, upon acceleration or otherwise), or after any other monetary Obligation of the Borrower shall have become due and payable, the Borrower shall pay, but only to the extent permitted by law, interest (after as well as before judgment) on such amounts for each day during the period while such payment is overdue at a rate per annum certified by the Facility Agent to the Borrower (which certification shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error) to be equal to (a) in the case of (i) principal of and interest on the Loan payable to each Option A Lender or (ii) interest on the Loan payable to each Option B Lender, the sum of the Floating Rate plus 3% per annum and (b) in the case of any other monetary Obligation (including, without limitation, principal on the Loan payable to each Option B Lender), the sum of the Floating Rate plus 2% per annum.
SECTION 3.4.5. Payment Dates.
Interest accrued on the Loan shall be payable, without duplication, on the earliest of:
(a)    each Repayment Date;
(b)    the date of any prepayment, in whole or in part, of principal outstanding on the Loan (but only on the principal so prepaid);
(c)    on that portion of the Loan the repayment of which is accelerated pursuant to Section 8.2 or Section 8.3, immediately upon such acceleration; and
(d)    in the case of any interest on any principal, interest or other amount owing under this Agreement or any other Loan Document that is overdue, from time to time on demand of the Facility Agent until such overdue amount is paid in full.
SECTION 3.4.6. Interest Rate Determination; Replacement Reference Banks
The Facility Agent shall obtain from each Reference Bank timely information for the purpose of determining the LIBO Rate in the event that no relevant London interbank offered rate appears on Thomson Reuters LIBOR01 or LIBOR02 Page (or any successor page) and the LIBO Rate is to be determined by reference to quotations supplied by the Reference Banks. If any one or more of the Reference Banks shall fail to furnish in a timely manner such information to the Facility Agent for any such interest rate, the Facility Agent shall determine such interest rate on the basis of the information furnished by the remaining Reference Banks. If the Borrower or the Guarantor elects to add an additional Reference Bank hereunder or a Reference Bank ceases for any reason to be able and willing to act as such, the Facility Agent shall, at the direction of the Required Lenders and after consultation with the Guarantor and the Lenders, appoint a replacement for such Reference Bank reasonably acceptable to the Guarantor, and such replaced Reference Bank shall cease to be a Reference Bank hereunder. The Facility Agent shall
Page 41

furnish to the Borrower, to the Guarantor and to the Lenders each determination of the LIBO Rate made by reference to quotations of interest rates furnished by Reference Banks.
If an election is made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e), the Facility Agent shall obtain from each Reference Bank timely information for the purpose of determining the EURO Rate in the event that no relevant London interbank offered rate appears on Thomson Reuters EURIBOR01 Page (or any successor page) and the EURO Rate is to be determined by reference to quotations supplied by the Reference Banks. If any one or more of the Reference Banks shall fail to furnish in a timely manner such information to the Facility Agent for any such interest rate, the Facility Agent shall determine such interest rate on the basis of the information furnished by the remaining Reference Banks. If the Borrower or the Guarantor elects to add an additional Reference Bank hereunder or a Reference Bank ceases for any reason to be able and willing to act as such, the Facility Agent shall, at the direction of the Required Lenders and after consultation with the Guarantor and the Lenders, appoint a replacement for such Reference Bank reasonably acceptable to the Guarantor, and such replaced Reference Bank shall cease to be a Reference Bank hereunder. The Facility Agent shall furnish to the Borrower, to the Guarantor and to the Lenders each determination of the EURO Rate made by reference to quotations of interest rates furnished by Reference Banks.
SECTION 3.5. Commitment Fee.
The Borrower agrees to pay to the Facility Agent for the account of each Lender a commitment fee (the "Commitment Fee") on its daily unused portion of the Maximum Loan Amount (as such Maximum Loan Amount may be adjusted from time to time), for the period commencing on the Effective Date and continuing through the earliest to occur (the "Commitment Fee Termination Date") of (i) the Disbursement Date, (ii) the date upon which the Facility Agent has provided the Borrower with written notice that the Lenders will not advance the Loan because the Commitments have been terminated pursuant to Section 8.2 or 8.3, (iii) the Commitment Termination Date and (iv) the date the Commitments shall have been terminated pursuant to Section 2.3. Should the Facility Agent provide the Borrower notice that the Lenders will not advance the Loan because Hermes has cancelled the Hermes Insurance Policy, the Commitment Fee paid by the Borrower for the account of each Lender shall be promptly refunded to the Borrower by such Lender; provided however that (i) no Lender shall be obliged to refund any Commitment Fee to the Borrower in these circumstances if the cancellation of the Hermes Insurance Policy is primarily attributable to the Borrower and (ii) (where a refund is applicable) a Lender shall only be obliged to refund to the Borrower an amount equal to the sum of (x) the portion of the Commitment Fee that such Lender has not paid to KfW in accordance with the applicable CIRR Agreement and (y) the portion of the Commitment Fee that such Lender has so paid to KfW and that such Lender actually recovers from KfW in the event of the cancellation of the Hermes Insurance Policy (and each Lender agrees to request from KfW the amount of Commitment Fee that it has paid to KfW).
SECTION 3.5.1. Payment of Commitment Fee.
(a)    The Commitment Fee shall be payable by the Borrower to the Facility Agent for the account of each Lender quarterly in arrears, with the first such payment (the
Page 42

"First Commitment Fee Payment") to be made on the day falling three months following the Effective Date and the final such payment to be made on the Commitment Fee Termination Date (each date on which a Commitment Fee payment is required to be made in accordance with this Section 3.4.1 referred to herein as a "Commitment Fee Payment Date"). The Commitment Fee shall be in the amount in EUR equal to the product of the Applicable Commitment Rate, multiplied by, for each day elapsed since the preceding Commitment Fee Payment Date (or, in the case of the First Commitment Fee Payment, the Effective Date), the Maximum Loan Amount in effect on such day, divided by 360 days; provided that the Borrower may elect to pay the Commitment Fee on any Commitment Fee Payment Date in Dollars by giving notice to the Facility Agent five (5) Business Days before such date. If the Borrower elects to pay the Commitment Fee in Dollars, the exchange rate used to convert the fee from EUR to Dollars shall be the 10 A.M. midpoint market fixing for the conversion of EUR to Dollars set by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York two (2) Business Days prior to the relevant Commitment Fee Payment Date.
(b)    No commitment fee is payable to the Facility Agent (for the account of a Lender) on any Commitment of that Lender for any day on which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender.
SECTION 3.6. CIRR Guarantee Charge.
SECTION 3.6.1. Generally
The Borrower agrees to pay to the Facility Agent for the account of KfW a fee of 0.01% per annum (the "CIRR Guarantee Charge") on the Maximum Loan Amount (having regard to the paragraph below) as at the Effective Date for the period commencing on 16 October 2019 (being the date that is six months after the date of the Construction Contract) and continuing until the earliest of (i) the date falling 60 days prior to the Disbursement Date, (ii) the date falling 32 days after either the date on which the Borrower elects the Floating Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.2 or, as to any portion of the Loan converted to a Floating Rate Loan pursuant to Section 3.4.3, the date on which such portion so converts to a Floating Rate Loan, (iii) the date falling 32 days after the date on which the Borrower elects to cancel all or part of the Commitments pursuant to Section 2.3, (iv) the date upon which the Facility Agent has provided written notice to the Borrower that the Lenders will not advance the Loan because the Commitments shall have been terminated pursuant to Sections 8.2 or 8.3 and (v) any other date on which the Commitments shall have been terminated.
SECTION 3.6.2. Payment.
The CIRR Guarantee Charge shall be payable by the Borrower in EUR quarterly in arrears commencing with the date falling three months after the commencement of the period described in Section 3.5.1 and thereafter on each subsequent three-month anniversary of such period and finally on the date on which the CIRR Guarantee Charge ceases to accrue as described in Section 3.5.1.
Page 43

SECTION 3.7. Other Fees.
The Borrower agrees to pay to the Facility Agent the agreed-upon fees set forth in the Fee Letters on the dates and in the amounts set forth therein.
SECTION 3.8. Temporary Repayment.
If the proceeds of the Loan have not been utilised directly or indirectly to pay for delivery to the Borrower of the Purchased Vessel within 15 days after the initial Disbursement Date and have been deposited in accordance with Section 4.12, the Borrower may, by notice to the Facility Agent in accordance with Section 3.2(a) and specifying that such prepayment may be re-borrowed under this Agreement, prepay the Loan, together with accrued interest on the Loan so prepaid, and shall be entitled to utilise funds standing to the credit of the Pledged Accounts for the purpose of applying these in or towards satisfaction of such prepayment obligation. If the Purchased Vessel is subsequently delivered to the Borrower, the Borrower shall be permitted to submit one additional Loan Request in accordance with Section 2.4 to re-borrow the Loan previously prepaid under this Section; provided, however, that the date of funding of any such re-borrowed Loan shall not be later than the Commitment Termination Date and provided, further, that such date of funding shall be the Disbursement Date for all purposes hereunder with respect to such re-borrowed Loan. Prepayment of the Loan made pursuant to this Section shall be without premium or penalty, except as may be required by Section 4.4.
SECTION 3.9. Limit on Interest Make-Up.
If, in relation to any Interest Period during which any portion of the Loan held by a Lender carries interest at the Fixed Rate, the amount of the interest make-up to be received by such Lender pursuant to the applicable CIRR Agreement entered into by such Lender is limited to an annual rate of twelve per cent. (12%) per annum by virtue of the provisions of Section 1.1 of the Terms and Conditions, then the Borrower shall pay to the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender an additional amount by way of interest equal to the amount of the interest make-up forgone by the relevant Lender as a consequence of such limitation. Such additional amount shall be payable by the Borrower within five (5) Business Days following receipt by the Borrower from the Facility Agent of the relevant Lender's invoice accompanied by reasonable calculation and explanation of the additional amount in question.
SECTION 3.10. Cancellation of CIRR Agreements.
No Lender shall be entitled to cancel or terminate the CIRR Agreement to which it is a party without the prior written consent of the Borrower.
ARTICLE IV
CERTAIN LIBO RATE, EURO RATE AND OTHER PROVISIONS

Page 44

SECTION 4.1. LIBO Rate or EURO Rate Lending Unlawful.
If after the Effective Date the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law makes it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority having jurisdiction over such Lender asserts that it is unlawful, for such Lender to make, continue or maintain its portion of the Loan bearing interest at a rate based on the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, EURO Rate, the obligation of such Lender to make, continue or maintain its portion of the Loan bearing interest at a rate based on the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, EURO Rate shall, upon notice thereof to the Borrower, the Facility Agent and each other Lender, forthwith be suspended until the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, provided that such Lender's obligation to make, continue and maintain its portion of the Loan hereunder shall be automatically converted into an obligation to make, continue and maintain its portion of the Loan bearing interest at a rate to be negotiated between such Lender and the Borrower that is the equivalent of the sum of the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, EURO Rate for the relevant Interest Period plus the applicable Floating Rate Margin.
SECTION 4.2. Deposits Unavailable
If, on or after the date the Borrower elects the Floating Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.2 or if any Lender shall have entered into an Option B Interest Make-Up Agreement (an "Option B Lender"), the Facility Agent shall have determined that:
(a)    Dollar or EUR (if an election is made for the Loan to be denominated in EUR pursuant to Section 2.4(e)) deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant Interest Period are not available to each Reference Bank in its relevant market, or
(b)    by reason of circumstances affecting the Reference Banks' relevant markets, adequate means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable hereunder to LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, EURO Rate loans for the relevant Interest Period, or
(c)    the cost to Option B Lenders that in the aggregate hold more than 50% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Loan then held by Option B Lenders, if any Lender shall have entered into an Option B Interest Make-Up Agreement, of obtaining matching deposits in the relevant interbank market for the relevant Interest Period would be in excess of the LIBO Rate, or as the case may be, EURO Rate (provided that no Option B Lender may exercise its rights under this Section 4.2(c) for amounts up to the difference between such Option B Lender's cost of obtaining matching deposits on the date such Option B Lender becomes a Lender hereunder less the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, EURO Rate on such date),
then the Facility Agent shall give notice of such determination (hereinafter called a "Determination Notice") to the Borrower and each of the Lenders. The Borrower, the Lenders and the Facility Agent shall then negotiate in good faith in order to agree upon a mutually satisfactory interest rate and interest period (or interest periods) to be substituted for those which would otherwise have applied under this Agreement. If the Borrower, the Lenders and the
Page 45

Facility Agent are unable to agree upon an interest rate (or rates) and interest period (or interest periods) prior to the date occurring fifteen (15) Business Days after the giving of such Determination Notice, the Facility Agent shall (after consultation with the Lenders) set an interest rate and an interest period (or interest periods), in each case to take effect at the end of the Interest Period current at the date of the Determination Notice, which rate (or rates) shall be equal to the sum of the applicable Floating Rate Margin and the weighted average of the corresponding interest rates at or about 11:00 a.m. (London time) two (2) Business Days before the commencement of the relevant Interest Period on Thomson Reuters' pages KLIEMMM, GARBIC01 and FINA01 (or such other pages as may replace Thomson Reuters' pages KLIEMMM, GARBIC01 or FINA01 on Thomson Reuters' service) (or, in the case of clause (c) above, the lesser of (x) the respective cost to the Option B Lenders of funding the respective portions of the Loan held by such Option B Lenders and (y) such weighted average). The Facility Agent shall furnish a certificate to the Borrower as soon as reasonably practicable after the Facility Agent has given such Determination Notice setting forth such rate(s). In the event that the circumstances described in this Section 4.2 shall extend beyond the end of an interest period agreed or set pursuant hereto, the foregoing procedure shall be repeated as often as may be necessary.
SECTION 4.3. Increased Loan Costs, etc.
If after the Effective Date a change in any applicable treaty, law, regulation or regulatory requirement or in the interpretation thereof or in its application to the Borrower, or if compliance by any Lender with any applicable direction, request, requirement or guideline (whether or not having the force of law) of any governmental or other authority including, without limitation, any agency of the European Union or similar monetary or multinational authority insofar as it may be changed or imposed after the date hereof, shall:
(a)    subject any Lender to any taxes, levies, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings of any nature with respect to its portion of the Loan or any part thereof imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any jurisdiction or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof (other than (i) taxes as to which such Lender is indemnified under Section 4.6 and (ii) taxes excluded from the indemnity set forth in Section 4.6); or
(b)    change the basis of taxation to any Lender (other than a change in taxation on the overall net income of any Lender) of payments of principal or interest or any other payment due or to become due pursuant to this Agreement; or
(c)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve or capital adequacy requirements (other than the increased capital costs described in Section 4.5 and the reserve costs described in Section 4.7) or other banking or monetary controls or requirements which affect the manner in which a Lender shall allocate its capital resources to its obligations hereunder or require the making of any special deposits against or in respect of any assets or liabilities of, deposits with or for the account of, or loans by, any Lender (provided that such Lender shall, unless prohibited by law, allocate its
Page 46

capital resources to its obligations hereunder in a manner which is consistent with its present treatment of the allocation of its capital resources); or
(d)    impose on any Lender any other condition affecting its portion of the Loan or any part thereof,
and the result of any of the foregoing is either (i) to increase the cost to such Lender of making its portion of the Loan or maintaining its portion of the Loan or any part thereof, (ii) to reduce the amount of any payment received by such Lender or its effective return hereunder or on its capital or (iii) to cause such Lender to make any payment or to forego any return based on any amount received or receivable by such Lender hereunder, then and in any such case if such increase or reduction in the opinion of such Lender materially affects the interests of such Lender, (A) such Lender shall (through the Facility Agent) notify the Borrower of the occurrence of such event and use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid the effects of such law, regulation or regulatory requirement or any change therein or in the interpretation thereof and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender and (B) the Borrower shall forthwith upon such demand pay to the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender such amount as is necessary to compensate such Lender for such additional cost or such reduction and ancillary expenses, including taxes, incurred as a result of such adjustment unless such additional costs are attributable to a FATCA Deduction required to be made by a party to this Agreement or are otherwise excluded from the indemnity set forth in Section 4.6 or Section 11.4. Such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the event leading to such additional cost, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the amount of such additional cost, (iii) describe the manner in which such amount has been calculated, (iv) certify that the method used to calculate such amount is such Lender's standard method of calculating such amount, (v) certify that such request is consistent with its treatment of other borrowers that are subject to similar provisions, and (vi) certify that, to the best of its knowledge, such change in circumstance is of general application to the commercial banking industry in such Lender's jurisdiction of organisation or in the relevant jurisdiction in which such Lender does business. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than three months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender's intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the circumstance giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the three-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof, but not more than six months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such cost or reductions and of such Lender's intention to claim compensation therefor.

SECTION 4.4. Funding Losses.
SECTION 4.4.1. Indemnity.
In the event any Lender: (i) is required to liquidate or to re-deploy (at not less than the market rate) deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to fund any portion of the principal amount of its portion of the Loan or (ii) exercises such Lender's right to irrevocably terminate (in whole or in part) the CIRR Guarantee after the Latest Date in accordance with Section 8.1 of the Terms and Conditions or, as the case may be in the case of an Option A Lender, Section 8.2 of the Terms and Conditions, in each case, as a result of:
(a)    if at the time interest is calculated at the Floating Rate on such Lender's portion of the Loan, any conversion or repayment or prepayment or acceleration of the principal amount of such Lender's portion of the Loan on a date other than the scheduled last day of an Interest Period or otherwise scheduled date for repayment or payment (in each case, including payments made in accordance with Section 3.1(b), but excluding any prepayment made following an election by the Borrower to effect a prepayment pursuant to Section 3.2(d), or any repayment pursuant to Section 9.1.12, by reason of a Non-Guarantor Related Change in Law);
(b)    if at the time interest is calculated at the Fixed Rate on such Lender's portion of the Loan, any repayment or prepayment or acceleration of the principal amount of such Lender's portion of the Loan, other than any repayment made on the date scheduled for such repayment (in each case, excluding any prepayment made following an election by the Borrower to effect a prepayment pursuant to Section 3.2(d), or any repayment pursuant to Section 9.1.12, by reason of a Non-Guarantor Related Change in Law);
(c)    without prejudice to the rights of the Borrower to elect an option under Section 3.4.2(a), an election by the Borrower of the Floating Rate in accordance with Section 3.4.2(a) (where the Disbursement Date is a date that falls less than 65 days after the Floating Rate Election Notice was delivered by the Borrower) or Section 3.4.2(b);
(d)    a reduction or termination of the Commitments by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.3 and to the extent that the Borrower has a liability under this Section pursuant to Section 2.3(b)(i);
(e)    the Loan not being made in accordance with the Loan Request therefor due to the fault of an Obligor or as a result of any of the conditions precedent set forth in Article V not being satisfied;
(f)    any prepayment of the Loan by the Borrower pursuant to Section 3.7;
Page 48

(g)    where interest on the Loan is to be calculated at the Fixed Rate or where the Borrower has elected the KfW Fixed Rate in accordance with Section 3.3.1(b), the Loan not being made on or before the Commitment Termination Date; or
(h)    where Borrower has elected the KfW Fixed Rate in accordance with Section 3.3.1(b), the Disbursement Date of the Loan is not the same date as the anticipated Disbursement Date at the time the Borrower elected the KfW Fixed Rate (and which anticipated Disbursement Date was applied for the purpose of determining the KfW Fixed Rate),
(each, a "Funding Losses Event"), then, upon the written notice of such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Facility Agent), the Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days of its receipt of such notice and, where the KfW Fixed Rate applies, save as provided below:
a.    if at that time interest is calculated at the Floating Rate on such Lender's portion of the Loan, pay directly to the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender an amount (the "Floating Rate Indemnity Amount") equal to the amount, if any, by which:
(i)    interest (not including the Floating Rate Margin) calculated at the Floating Rate which such Lender would have received on its share of the amount of the Loan subject to such Funding Losses Event for the period from the date of receipt of any part of its share in the Loan to the last day of the applicable Interest Period,
exceeds:
(ii)    the amount which such Lender would be able to obtain by placing an amount equal to the amount received by it on deposit with a leading bank in the appropriate interbank market for a period starting on the Business Day following receipt and ending on the last day of the applicable Interest Period; or
b.    if at that time interest is calculated at the Fixed Rate on such Lender's portion of the Loan, pay to the Facility Agent the sum of:
(A)    an amount equal to the amount, if any, by which:
(i)    interest calculated at the rate per annum equal to (a) the CIRR which such Lender would have received on its share of the amount of the Loan subject to such Funding Losses Event minus (b) the administrative margin of 0.20%, for the period from the date of receipt of any part of its share of the Loan to the final scheduled date for the repayment of Loan in full pursuant to Section 3.1,
Page 49

exceeds:
(ii)    the amount by which such Lender would be able to obtain by placing for such remaining period an equal amount to the amount received by it on deposit and receiving interest equal to the money market rate then applicable to Dollars on the Reuters page "ICAP1" or, as the case may be, EUR on the Reuters page "ICAPEURO" (the "Reinvestment Rate"),
such amount to be discounted to present value at the Reinvestment Rate or, where the KfW Fixed Rate applies in the case of sections 4.4.1(g) and (h), the cost to KfW (on behalf of each Option A Lender) and each Option B Lender of adjusting, renewing, terminating or otherwise altering the hedging arrangements entered into by KfW and each Option B Lender in connection with the settling and provision of the KfW Fixed Rate; plus
(B)    only if KfW (where such Lender is an Option A Lender) or the Lender (where such Lender is an Option B Lender) is funding itself at a floating rate, an amount equal to the Floating Rate Indemnity Amount (and assuming for the purpose of this calculation that the interest on the Loan is calculated at the Floating Rate and not the Fixed Rate).
Any amounts received by the Facility Agent under b.(A) above shall, unless otherwise advised by KfW, be for the account of, and shall be payable to, KfW on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany; and any amounts received by the Facility Agent under b.(B) above in respect of a Lender's portion of the Loan shall be for the account of, and shall be payable to, KfW (where such Lender is an Option A Lender) or to that Lender (where such Lender is an Option B Lender).
If interest on the Loan is to be calculated at the Fixed Rate or the Borrower has elected the KfW Fixed Rate in accordance with Section 3.4.1(b), and the Borrower voluntarily cancels, terminates or partially reduces the Commitments in accordance with Section 2.3 or the amount of the Loan is less than the total Commitments as at the date of this Agreement, and such cancellation or reduction is due to the non-delivery or late delivery of the Purchased Vessel by the Builder due to of the bankruptcy or insolvency of the Builder then (1) no indemnity payments can be claimed by the Option A Lenders under b. above in these circumstances and (2) where the cancellation arises as a result of the late delivery of the Purchased Vessel by the Builder, the amounts that can be claimed by way of indemnity from the Borrower under this Section 4.4 in respect of the KfW Fixed Rate in these circumstances shall be limited to the aggregate of the costs actually incurred by KfW (on behalf of the Option A Lenders) and each Option B Lender in adjusting the hedging arrangements entered into by KfW and such Option B Lenders in connection with the KfW Fixed Rate to take account of the delayed delivery date.
Page 50

Such written notice shall include calculations in reasonable detail setting forth the loss or expense to such Lender.
SECTION 4.5. Increased Capital Costs.
If after the Effective Date any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase-in of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any court, central bank, regulator or other governmental authority increases the amount of capital required to be maintained by any Lender or any Person controlling such Lender, and the rate of return on its or such controlling Person's capital as a consequence of its Commitment or its portion of the Loan made by such Lender is reduced to a level below that which such Lender or such controlling Person would have achieved but for the occurrence of any such change in circumstance, then, in any such case upon notice from time to time by such Lender to the Borrower, the Borrower shall immediately pay directly to such Lender additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender or such controlling Person for such reduction in rate of return. Any such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the capital adequacy requirements which have been imposed, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the amount of such lowered return, (iii) describe the manner in which such amount has been calculated, (iv) certify that the method used to calculate such amount is such Lender's standard method of calculating such amount, (v) certify that such request for such additional amounts is consistent with its treatment of other borrowers that are subject to similar provisions and (vi) certify that, to the best of its knowledge, such change in circumstances is of general application to the commercial banking industry in the jurisdictions in which such Lender does business. In determining such amount, such Lender may use any method of averaging and attribution that it shall, subject to the foregoing sentence, deem applicable. Each Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would avoid such reduction in such rate of return and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than three months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such reductions and of such Lender's intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the circumstance giving rise to such reductions is retroactive, then the three-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof, but not more than six months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstance giving rise to such reductions and of such Lender's intention to claim compensation therefor.
SECTION 4.6. Taxes.
All payments by the Obligors of principal of, and interest on, the Loan and all other amounts payable under any Loan Document, including for the avoidance of doubt under any Fee Letter, shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any present or future income,
Page 51

excise, stamp or franchise taxes and other taxes, fees, duties, withholdings or other charges of any nature whatsoever imposed by any taxing authority, but excluding (i) franchise taxes and taxes imposed on or measured by any Lender's net income or receipts of such Lender and franchise taxes imposed in lieu of net income taxes or taxes on receipts, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Lender is organised or any political subdivision thereof or the jurisdiction of such Lender's Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof or any other jurisdiction unless such net income taxes are imposed solely as a result of the applicable Obligor's activities in such other jurisdiction, and (ii) any taxes imposed under FATCA (such non-excluded items being called "Covered Taxes"). In the event that any withholding or deduction from any payment to be made by any Obligor under any Loan Document is required in respect of any Covered Taxes pursuant to any applicable law, rule or regulation, then the relevant Obligor will:
(a)    pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required to be so withheld or deducted;
(b)    promptly forward to the Facility Agent an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to the Facility Agent evidencing such payment to such authority; and
(c)    pay to the Facility Agent for the account of the Lenders such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by each Lender will equal the full amount such Lender would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required.
Moreover, if any Covered Taxes are directly asserted against the Facility Agent or any Lender with respect to any payment received or paid by the Facility Agent or such Lender hereunder, the Facility Agent or such Lender may pay such Covered Taxes and the Borrower will promptly pay such additional amounts (including any penalties, interest or expenses) as is necessary in order that the net amount received by such person after the payment of such Covered Taxes (including any Covered Taxes on such additional amount) shall equal the amount such person would have received had no such Covered Taxes been asserted.
Any Lender claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Lending Office if the making of such a change would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.
If the Borrower or a relevant Obligor fails to pay any Covered Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the Facility Agent for the account of the respective Lenders the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders for any incremental withholding Covered Taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by any Lender as a result of any such failure (so long as such amount did not become payable as a result of the failure of such Lender to provide timely notice to the Borrower of the assertion of a liability related to the payment of Covered Taxes). For purposes
Page 52

of this Section 4.6, a distribution hereunder by the Facility Agent or any Lender to or for the account of any Lender shall be deemed a payment by the Borrower.
If any Lender is entitled to any refund, credit, deduction or other reduction in tax by reason of any payment made by the Borrower or a relevant Obligor in respect of any Covered Tax under this Section 4.6 or by reason of any payment made by the Borrower or a relevant Obligor pursuant to Section 4.3, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to obtain such refund, credit, deduction or other reduction and, promptly after receipt thereof, will pay to the Borrower or a relevant Obligor such amount (plus any interest received by such Lender in connection with such refund, credit, deduction or reduction) as is equal to the net after-tax value to such Lender of such part of such refund, credit, deduction or reduction as such Lender reasonably determines is allocable to such Covered Tax or such payment (less out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such Lender), provided that no Lender shall be obligated to disclose to the Obligors any information regarding its tax affairs or tax computations.
Each Lender (and each Participant) agrees with each Obligor and the Facility Agent that it will (i) (a) provide to the Facility Agent and each Obligor an appropriately executed copy of Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") Form W-9 (or any successor form) certifying the status of such Lender or such Participant as a US person, IRS Form W-8ECI (or any successor form) certifying that any payments made to or for the benefit of such Lender or such Participant are effectively connected with a trade or business in the United States or IRS Form W-8BEN (or any successor form) claiming the benefits of a tax treaty (but only if the applicable treaty described in such form provides for a complete exemption from U.S. federal income tax withholding), or any successor form, on or prior to the date hereof (or, in the case of any assignee Lender or Participant, on or prior to the date of the relevant assignment or participation), in each case attached to an IRS Form W-8IMY (or any successor form), if appropriate, (b) notify the Facility Agent and each Obligor if the certifications made on any form provided pursuant to this paragraph are no longer accurate and true in all material respects and (c) provide such other tax forms or other documents as shall be prescribed by applicable law, if any, or as otherwise reasonably requested, to demonstrate, to the extent applicable, the status of such Lender Party (or Participant) or that payments to such Lender Party (or Participant) hereunder are exempt from withholding under FATCA, and (ii) in all cases, provide such forms, certificates or other documents, as and when reasonably requested by any Obligor, necessary to claim any applicable exemption from, or reduction of, Covered Taxes, a FATCA Deduction or any payments made to or for benefit of such Lender Party or such Participant, provided that the Lender Party or Participant is legally able to deliver such forms, certificates or other documents. For any period with respect to which a Lender (or assignee Lender or Participant) has failed to provide the Obligors with the foregoing forms (other than if such failure is due to a change in law occurring after the date on which a form originally was required to be provided (which, in the case of an Assignee Lender, would be the date on which the original assignor was required to provide such form) or if such form otherwise is not required hereunder) such Lender (or assignee Lender or Participant) shall not be entitled to the benefits of this Section 4.6 with respect to Covered Taxes imposed by reason of such failure.
Page 53

SECTION 4.7. Reserve Costs.
Without in any way limiting the Borrower's obligations under Section 4.3, the Borrower shall, on and after the date on which the Borrower elects the Floating Rate pursuant to Section 3.4.2, pay to the Facility Agent for the account of each Lender on the last day of each Interest Period, so long as the relevant Lending Office of such Lender is required to maintain reserves against "Eurocurrency liabilities" under Regulation D of the F.R.S. Board, upon notice from such Lender, an additional amount equal to the product of the following for the Loan for each day during such Interest Period:
(a)    the principal amount of the Loan outstanding on such day; and
(b)    the remainder of (x) a fraction the numerator of which is the rate (expressed as a decimal) at which interest accrues on the Loan for such Interest Period as provided in this Agreement (less, if applicable, the applicable Floating Rate Margin) and the denominator of which is one minus any increase after the Effective Date in the effective rate (expressed as a decimal) at which such reserve requirements are imposed on such Lender minus (y) such numerator; and
(c)    1/360.
Such notice shall (i) describe in reasonable detail the reserve requirement that has been imposed, together with the approximate date of the effectiveness thereof, (ii) set forth the applicable reserve percentage, (iii) certify that such request is consistent with such Lender's treatment of other borrowers that are subject to similar provisions and (iv) certify that, to the best of its knowledge, such requirements are of general application in the commercial banking industry in the United States.
Each Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to avoid the requirement of maintaining such reserves (including by designating a different Lending Office) if such efforts would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.
SECTION 4.8. Payments, Computations, etc.
(a)    Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, all payments by an Obligor in respect of amounts of principal, interest and fees or any other applicable amounts owing to the Lenders under any Loan Document shall be made by such Obligor to the Facility Agent for the account of the Lenders entitled to receive such payments and ratably in accordance with the respective amounts then due and payable to the Lenders. All such payments required to be made to the Facility Agent shall be made, without set-off, deduction or counterclaim, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York time, on the date due, in same day or immediately available funds through the New York Clearing House Interbank Payments System (or such other funds as may be customary for the settlement of international banking transactions in Dollars, or as the case may be,
Page 54

EUR), to such account as the Facility Agent shall specify from time to time by notice to the Obligors. Funds received after that time shall be deemed to have been received by the Lenders on the next succeeding Business Day.
(b)    
i.    Each Option A Lender hereby instructs the Facility Agent to remit all payments of interest made with respect to any portion of the Loan held by such Option A Lender to KfW (A) less (x) the applicable Fixed Rate Margin and (y) the CIRR administrative fee of 0.20% but plus (z) an agreed KfW margin, if interest on the portion of the Loan made by that Lender is then calculated at the Fixed Rate, or (B) less (x) the applicable Floating Rate Margin but plus (y) an agreed KfW margin, if interest on that portion of the Loan is then calculated at the Floating Rate.
ii.    Each Option B Lender hereby instructs the Facility Agent, with respect to any portion of the Loan held by such Option B Lender, to pay directly to such Option B Lender interest thereon at the Fixed Rate or the Floating Rate (whichever is applicable), on the basis that, if interest on such portion of the Loan is then calculated at the Fixed Rate, such Option B Lender will, where amounts are payable to KfW by that Option B Lender under the CIRR Agreement, account directly to KfW on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany for any such amounts payable by that Lender under the CIRR Agreement to which such Lender is a party.
(c)    The Facility Agent shall promptly (but in any event on the same Business Day that the same are received or, as contemplated in clause (a) of this Section, deemed received) remit in same day funds to each Lender its share, if any, of such payments received by the Facility Agent for the account of such Lender without any set-off, deduction or counterclaim. All interest and fees shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring during the period for which such interest or fee is payable over a year comprised of 360 days. Whenever any payment to be made shall otherwise be due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall (except as otherwise required by clause (a) of the definition of the term "Interest Period") be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest and fees, if any, in connection with such payment.
SECTION 4.9. Replacement Lenders, etc.
If the Borrower or a relevant Obligor shall be required to make any payment to any Lender pursuant to Section 4.2(c), 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 or 4.7, the Borrower shall be entitled at any time (so long as no Default and no Prepayment Event shall have occurred and be continuing) within 180 days after receipt of notice from such Lender of such required payment to (a) terminate such Lender's Commitment (whereupon the Percentage of each other Lender shall automatically be adjusted to an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share of the remaining
Page 55

Commitments), (b) prepay the affected portion of such Lender's Loan in full, together with accrued interest thereon through the date of such prepayment (provided that the Borrower shall not terminate any Lender's Commitment pursuant to clause (a) or prepay any such Lender pursuant to this clause (b) without replacing such Lender pursuant to the following clause (c) until a 30-day period shall have elapsed during which the Borrower and the Facility Agent shall have attempted in good faith to replace such Lender), and/or (c) replace such Lender with one or more financial institutions (I) reasonably acceptable to the Facility Agent, (II) meeting the criteria set out in Section 2.2 of the Terms and Conditions, (III) acceptable to Hermes and (IV) in the case of a replacement of an Option A Lender, reasonably acceptable to KfW; provided that (x) in the case of a single assignment, any such assignment shall be either an assignment of all of the rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement or, in the case of more than one assignment, an assignment of a portion of such rights and obligations made concurrently with another such assignment or other such assignments that collectively cover all of the rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement and (y) no Lender shall be obligated to make any such assignment pursuant to this Section 4.9 unless and until such Lender shall have received one or more payments from one or more Assignee Lenders and/or the Borrower in an aggregate amount at least equal to the portion of the Loan held by such Lender, together with all unpaid interest and fees thereon accrued to but excluding the date of such assignment (and all other amounts then owing to such Lender under this Agreement). Each Lender represents and warrants to each Obligor that, as of the date of this Agreement (or, with respect to any Lender not a party hereto on the date hereof, on the date that such Lender becomes a party hereto), there is no existing treaty, law, regulation, regulatory requirement, interpretation, directive, guideline, decision or request pursuant to which such Lender would be entitled to request any payments under any of Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 to or for account of such Lender.
SECTION 4.10. Sharing of Payments
SECTION 4.10.1. Payments to Lenders
If a Lender (a "Recovering Lender") receives or recovers any amount from the Borrower or an Obligor other than in accordance with Section 4.8 (Payments, Computations, etc.) (a "Recovered Amount") and applies that amount to a payment due under the Loan Documents then:
(a)    the Recovering Lender shall, within three (3) Business Days, notify details of the receipt or recovery to the Facility Agent;
(b)    the Facility Agent shall determine whether the receipt or recovery is in excess of the amount the Recovering Lender would have been paid had the receipt or recovery been received or made by the Facility Agent and distributed in accordance with the said Section 4.8, without taking account of any taxes which would be imposed on the Facility Agent in relation to the receipt, recovery or distribution; and
(c)    the Recovering Lender shall, within three (3) Business Days of demand by the Facility Agent, pay to the Facility Agent an amount (the "Sharing Payment") equal
Page 56

to such receipt or recovery less any amount which the Facility Agent determines may be retained by the Recovering Lender as its share of any payment to be made, in accordance with any applicable provisions of this Agreement.
SECTION 4.10.2. Redistribution of payments
The Facility Agent shall treat the Sharing Payment as if it had been paid by the Borrower and distribute it between the Lenders (other than the Recovering Lender) (the "Sharing Lenders") in accordance with Section 4.8 of this Agreement towards the obligations of the Borrower to the Sharing Lenders.
SECTION 4.10.3. Recovering Lender's rights
On a distribution by the Facility Agent under Section 4.10.2 of a payment received by a Recovering Lender from the Borrower or relevant Obligor, solely as between the Borrower or relevant Obligor and the Recovering Lender, an amount of the Recovered Amount equal to the Sharing Payment will be treated as not having been paid by the Borrower or relevant Obligor.
SECTION 4.10.4. Reversal of redistribution
If any part of the Sharing Payment received or recovered by a Recovering Lender becomes repayable to the Borrower or relevant Obligor and is repaid by that Recovering Lender to the Borrower or relevant Obligor, then:
(a)    each Sharing Lender shall, upon request of the Facility Agent, pay to the Facility Agent for the account of that Recovering Lender an amount equal to the appropriate part of its share of the Sharing Payment (together with an amount as is necessary to reimburse that Recovering Lender for its proportion of any interest on the Sharing Payment which that Recovering Lender is required to pay) (the "Redistributed Amount"); and
(b)    solely as between the Borrower or relevant Obligor and each relevant Sharing Lender, an amount equal to the relevant Redistributed Amount will be treated as not having been paid by the Borrower or relevant Obligor.
SECTION 4.10.5. Exceptions
(a)    This Section 4.10 shall not apply to the extent that the Recovering Lender would not, after making any payment pursuant to this Section 4.10, have a valid and enforceable claim against the Borrower or relevant Obligor.
(b)    A Recovering Lender is not obliged to share with any other Lender any amount which the Recovering Lender has received or recovered as a result of taking legal or arbitration proceedings, if:
i.    it notified the other Lender of the legal or arbitration proceedings; and
Page 57

ii.    the other Lender had an opportunity to participate in those legal or arbitration proceedings but did not do so as soon as reasonably practicable having received notice and did not take separate legal or arbitration proceedings.
SECTION 4.11. Set-off
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default or a Prepayment Event, each Lender shall have, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the right to appropriate and apply to the payment of the Obligations then due and owing to it any and all balances, credits, deposits, accounts or moneys of any Obligor then or thereafter maintained with such Lender; provided that any such appropriation and application shall be subject to the provisions of Section 4.10. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the applicable Obligor and the Facility Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Lender; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of set-off under applicable law or otherwise) which such Lender may have.
SECTION 4.12. Use of Proceeds
The Borrower shall apply the proceeds of the Loan in accordance with Section 2.4(c) and (d) and, in relation to the Disbursement Date, prior to such application, such proceeds shall be held in an account or accounts of the Facility Agent in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.4(c); without limiting the foregoing, no proceeds of the Loan will be used to acquire any equity security of a class which is registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or any "margin stock", as defined in F.R.S. Board Regulation U. If the proceeds of the Loan have not been paid either (A) to the Builder or its order in accordance with Section 2.4(d)(i) and to Hermes and the Borrower in accordance with Section 2.4(d)(ii) or (B) to the Facility Agent (directly or indirectly) in prepayment of the Loan under Sections 3.2(a) or 3.8 by 9:59 p.m. (London time) on the first Business Day after the Disbursement Date (where the Loan is denominated in EUR) or the second Business Day after the Disbursement Date (where the Loan is denominated in Dollars), such proceeds shall continue to be pledged by the Borrower upon receipt in accordance with Section 2.4(c) as collateral pursuant to the Pledge Agreement. On or prior to the date that is 15 days after the Disbursement Date, the Borrower shall notify the Facility Agent whether the proceeds of the Loan are to be returned to the Facility Agent as prepayment in accordance with Section 3.8 or to be held as cash collateral in the Pledged Account pursuant to the Pledge Agreement until the earlier of (A) disbursement in accordance with Section 2.4(d) or (B) prepayment of the Loan pursuant to Sections 3.2(a) or 9.2.
SECTION 4.13. FATCA Deduction
(a)     Each party to the Agreement may make any FATCA Deduction it is required to make by FATCA, and any payment required in connection with that FATCA Deduction, and no party to the Agreement shall be required to increase any payment in respect of which it makes such a FATCA Deduction or otherwise compensate the recipient of the payment for that FATCA Deduction.
Page 58

(b)    Each party to the Agreement shall promptly, upon becoming aware that it must make a FATCA Deduction (or that there is any change in the rate or the basis of such FATCA Deduction), notify the other party to the Agreement to whom it is making the payment and, in addition, shall notify the Borrower and the Facility Agent, and the Facility Agent shall notify the other parties to the Agreement.
SECTION 4.14. FATCA Information.
(a)    Subject to paragraph (c) below, each party (other than the Borrower and the Guarantor) shall, within ten (10) Business Days of a reasonable request by another party (other than the Borrower and the Guarantor):
(i)    confirm to that other party whether it is:
(A)    a FATCA Exempt Party; or
(B)    not a FATCA Exempt Party;
(ii)    supply to that other party such forms, documentation and other information relating to its status under FATCA as that other party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other party's compliance with FATCA;
(iii)    supply to that other party such forms, documentation and other information relating to its status as that other party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other party's compliance with any other law, regulation, or exchange of information regime.
(b)    If a party confirms to another party pursuant to paragraph (a)(i) above that it is a FATCA Exempt Party and it subsequently becomes aware that it is not or has ceased to be a FATCA Exempt Party, that party shall notify that other party reasonably promptly.
(c)    Paragraph (a) above shall not oblige any Lender or the Facility Agent to do anything, and paragraph (a)(iii) above shall not oblige any other party to do anything, which would or might in its reasonable opinion constitute a breach of:
(i)    any law or regulation;
(ii)    any fiduciary duty; or
(iii)    any duty of confidentiality.
(d)    If a party fails to confirm whether or not it is a FATCA Exempt Party or to supply forms, documentation or other information requested in accordance with paragraph (a)(i) or (ii) above (including, for the avoidance of doubt, where paragraph (c) above applies), then such party shall be treated for the purposes of the Loan Documents (and payments under them) as if it is not a FATCA Exempt Party until such time as the party in question provides the requested confirmation, forms, documentation or other information.
Page 59

(e)     If the Borrower becomes a US Tax Obligor or the Facility Agent reasonably believes that its obligations under FATCA or any other applicable law or regulation require it, each Lender shall, within ten Business Days of:
(i)    where the Borrower is a US Tax Obligor and the relevant Lender is KfW IPEX, the date of this Agreement;
(ii)    where the Borrower is a US Tax Obligor on a date an assignment or transfer is made pursuant to Section 11.11.1 and the relevant Lender is an Assignee Lender that becomes a Lender in accordance with Section 11.11.1, the date on which such Assignee Lender becomes a Lender;
(iii)    where the Borrower is not a US Tax Obligor, the date of a request from the Facility Agent,
supply to the Facility Agent:
(A)    a withholding certificate on Form W-8 (or any successor form), Form W-9 (or any successor form) or any other relevant form; or
(B)    any withholding statement or other document, authorisation or waiver as the Facility Agent may require to certify or establish the status of such Lender under FATCA or that other law or regulation.
(f)    The Facility Agent shall provide any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver it receives from a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) above to the Borrower.
(g)    If any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver provided to the Facility Agent by a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) above is or becomes materially inaccurate or incomplete, that Lender shall promptly update it and provide such updated withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver to the Facility Agent unless it is unlawful for the Lender to do so (in which case the Lender shall promptly notify the Facility Agent). The Facility Agent shall provide any such updated withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver to the Borrower.
(h)    The Facility Agent may rely on any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver it receives from a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) or (g) above without further verification. The Facility Agent shall not be liable for any action taken by it under or in connection with paragraph (e), (f) or (g) above.
Page 60

SECTION 4.15. Resignation of the Facility Agent.
The Facility Agent shall resign (and, to the extent applicable, shall use reasonable endeavours to appoint a successor Facility Agent) if, either:
(a)    the Facility Agent fails to respond to a request under Section 4.14 and the Borrower or a Lender reasonably believes that the Facility Agent will not be (or will have ceased to be) a FATCA Exempt Party;
(b)    the information supplied by the Facility Agent pursuant to Section 4.14 indicates that the Facility Agent will not be (or will have ceased to be) a FATCA Exempt Party; or
(c)    the Facility Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the Facility Agent will not be (or will have ceased to be) a FATCA Exempt Party,
and (in each case) the Guarantor, the Borrower or a Lender reasonably believes that a party to this Agreement will be required to make a FATCA Deduction that would not be required if the Facility Agent were a FATCA Exempt Party, and the Borrower or that Lender, by notice to the Facility Agent, requires it to resign.

If any Prepayment Event shall occur and be continuing (and subject, in the case of Section 9.1.11, to Section 11.17), the Facility Agent, upon the direction of the Required Lenders, shall by notice to the Borrower either (i) if the Disbursement Date has occurred and the Loan disbursed (but without prejudice to the last paragraph of Section 9.1), require the Borrower to prepay in full on the date of such notice all principal of and interest on the Loan and all other Obligations (and, in such event, the Borrower agrees to so pay the full unpaid amount of the Loan and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and all other Obligations) or (ii) if the Disbursement Date has not occurred, terminate the Commitments; provided that, if such Prepayment Event arises under Section 9.1.12, the remedy available under this Section 9.2 shall be limited to that provided above in clause (i) and only with respect to the portion of the Loan held by the affected Lender that gave the relevant Illegality Notice.
ARTICLE X
THE FACILITY AGENT AND THE HERMES AGENT

SECTION 10.1. Actions.
Each Lender hereby appoints KfW IPEX, as Facility Agent and as Hermes Agent, as its agent under and for purposes of this Agreement and each other Loan Document (for purposes of this Article X, the Facility Agent and the Hermes Agent are referred to collectively as the "Agents"). Each Lender authorises the Agents to act on behalf of such Lender under this Agreement and each other Loan Document and, in the absence of other written instructions from the Required Lenders received from time to time by the Agents (with respect to which each Agent agrees that it will comply, except as otherwise provided in this Section 10.1 or as otherwise advised by counsel), to exercise such powers hereunder and thereunder as are specifically delegated to or required of the Agents by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as may be reasonably incidental thereto. Neither Agent shall be obliged to act on the instructions of any Lender or the Required Lenders if to do so would, in the opinion of such Agent, be contrary to any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or to any law, or would expose such Agent to any actual or potential liability to any third party.
Page 92

SECTION 10.2. Indemnity.
Each Lender hereby indemnifies (which indemnity shall survive any termination of this Agreement) each Agent, pro rata according to such Lender's Percentage, from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel) that be incurred by or asserted or awarded against, such Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement and any other Loan Document or any action taken or omitted by such Agent under this Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided that no Lender shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses which have resulted from such Agent's gross negligence or wilful misconduct. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Lender agrees to reimburse each Agent promptly upon demand for its ratable share of any out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable counsel fees) incurred by such Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement, to the extent that such Agent is not reimbursed for such expenses by the Borrower. In the case of any investigation, litigation or proceeding giving rise to any such indemnified costs, this Section applies whether any such investigation, litigation or proceeding is brought by any Agent, any Lender or a third party. Neither Agent shall be required to take any action hereunder or under any other Loan Document, or to prosecute or defend any suit in respect of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, unless it is expressly required to do so under this Agreement or is indemnified hereunder to its satisfaction. If any indemnity in favour of an Agent shall be or become, in such Agent's determination, inadequate, such Agent may call for additional indemnification from the Lenders and cease to do the acts indemnified against hereunder until such additional indemnity is given.
SECTION 10.3. Funding Reliance, etc.
Each Lender shall notify the Facility Agent by 4:00 p.m., Frankfurt time, one day prior to the advance of the Loan if it is not able to fund the following day. Unless the Facility Agent shall have been notified by telephone, confirmed in writing, by any Lender by 4:00 p.m., Frankfurt time, on the day prior to the advance of the Loan that such Lender will not make available the amount which would constitute its Percentage of the Loan on the date specified therefor, the Facility Agent may assume that such Lender has made such amount available to the Facility Agent and, in reliance upon such assumption, may, but shall not be obliged to, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If and to the extent that such Lender shall not have made such amount available to the Facility Agent, such Lender and the Borrower severally agree to repay the Facility Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date the Facility Agent made such amount available to the Borrower to the date such amount is repaid to the Facility Agent, at the interest rate applicable at the time to the Loan without premium or penalty.
SECTION 10.4. Exculpation.
Neither of the Agents nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable to any Lender for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it under this
Page 93

Agreement or any other Loan Document, or in connection herewith or therewith, except for its own wilful misconduct or gross negligence. Without limitation of the generality of the foregoing, each Agent (i) may consult with legal counsel (including counsel for the Borrower or the Guarantor), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it and in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts, (ii) makes no warranty or representation to any Lender and shall not be responsible to any Lender for any statements, warranties or representations (whether written or oral) made in or in connection with this Agreement, (iii) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance, observance or satisfaction of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement on the part of the Obligors or the existence at any time of any Default or Prepayment Event or to inspect the property (including the books and records) of the Obligors, (iv) shall not be responsible to any Lender for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto, (v) shall incur no liability under or in respect of this Agreement by action upon any notice, consent, certificate or other instrument or writing (which may be by telecopier) believed by it to be genuine and signed or sent by the proper party or parties, and (vi) shall have no responsibility to the Obligors or any Lender on account of (A) the failure of a Lender or an Obligor to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement or any Loan Document; (B) the financial condition of the Obligors; (C) the completeness or accuracy of any statements, representations or warranties made in or pursuant to this Agreement or any Loan Document, or in or pursuant to any document delivered pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement or any Loan Document; or (D) the negotiation, execution, effectiveness, genuineness, validity, enforceability, admissibility in evidence or sufficiency of this Agreement or any Loan Document or of any document executed or delivered pursuant to or in connection with any Loan Document.
SECTION 10.5. Successor.
The Facility Agent may resign as such at any time upon at least 30 days' prior notice to the Borrower and all Lenders, provided that any such resignation shall not become effective until a successor Facility Agent has been appointed as provided in this Section 10.5 and such successor Facility Agent has accepted such appointment. If the Facility Agent at any time shall resign, the Required Lenders shall, subject to the immediately preceding proviso and subject to the consent of the Guarantor and the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), appoint another Lender as a successor to the Facility Agent which shall thereupon become such Facility Agent's successor hereunder (provided that the Required Lenders shall, subject to the consent of the Guarantor and the Borrower unless an Event or Default or a Prepayment Event shall have occurred and be continuing (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) offer to each of the other Lenders in turn, in the order of their respective Percentages of the Loan, the right to become successor Facility Agent). If no successor Facility Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the Facility Agent's giving notice of resignation, then the Facility Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Facility Agent, which shall be one of the Lenders or a commercial banking institution having a combined capital and surplus of at least $1,000,000,000 (or the equivalent in other currencies), subject, in each case, to the consent of the Guarantor and
Page 94

the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld). Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Facility Agent hereunder by a successor Facility Agent, such successor Facility Agent shall be entitled to receive from the resigning Facility Agent such documents of transfer and assignment as such successor Facility Agent may reasonably request, and shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all rights, powers, privileges and duties of the resigning Facility Agent, and the resigning Facility Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Agreement. After any resigning Facility Agent's resignation hereunder as the Facility Agent, the provisions of:
(a)    this Article X shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Facility Agent under this Agreement; and
(b)    Section 11.3 and Section 11.4 shall continue to inure to its benefit.
If a Lender acting as the Facility Agent assigns its Loan to one of its Affiliates, such Facility Agent may, subject to the consent of the Guarantor and the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) assign its rights and obligations as Facility Agent to such Affiliate.
SECTION 10.6. Loans by the Facility Agent
The Facility Agent shall have the same rights and powers with respect to the Loan made by it or any of its Affiliates. The Facility Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Obligors or any Affiliate of the Obligors as if the Facility Agent were not the Facility Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders. The Facility Agent shall have no duty to disclose information obtained or received by it or any of its Affiliates relating to any Obligor or its Subsidiaries to the extent such information was obtained or received in any capacity other than as the Facility Agent.
SECTION 10.7. Credit Decisions.
Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently of each Agent and each other Lender, and based on such Lender's review of the financial information of the Obligors, this Agreement, the other Loan Documents (the terms and provisions of which being satisfactory to such Lender) and such other documents, information and investigations as such Lender has deemed appropriate, made its own credit decision to extend its Commitment. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently of each Agent and each other Lender, and based on such other documents, information and investigations as it shall deem appropriate at any time, continue to make its own credit decisions as to exercising or not exercising from time to time any rights and privileges available to it under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
SECTION 10.8. Copies, etc.
Each Agent shall give prompt notice to each Lender of each notice or request required or permitted to be given to such Agent by an Obligor pursuant to the terms of this Agreement
Page 95

(unless concurrently delivered to the Lenders by the relevant Obligor). Each Agent will distribute to each Lender each document or instrument received for its account and copies of all other communications received by such Agent from the Obligors for distribution to the Lenders by such Agent in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
SECTION 10.9. The Agents' Rights.
Each Agent may (i) assume that all representations or warranties made or deemed repeated by the Obligors in or pursuant to this Agreement or any Loan Document are true and complete, unless, in its capacity as the Facility Agent, it has acquired actual knowledge to the contrary, (ii) assume that no Default has occurred unless, in its capacity as an Agent, it has acquired actual knowledge to the contrary, (iii) rely on any document or notice believed by it to be genuine, (iv) rely as to legal or other professional matters on opinions and statements of any legal or other professional advisers selected or approved by it, (v) rely as to any factual matters which might reasonably be expected to be within the knowledge an Obligor on a certificate signed by or on behalf of that Obligor and (vi) refrain from exercising any right, power, discretion or remedy unless and until instructed to exercise that right, power, discretion or remedy and as to the manner of its exercise by the Lenders (or, where applicable, by the Required Lenders) and unless and until such Agent has received from the Lenders any payment which such Agent may require on account of, or any security which such Agent may require for, any costs, claims, expenses (including legal and other professional fees) and liabilities which it considers it may incur or sustain in complying with those instructions.
SECTION 10.10. The Facility Agent's Duties.
The Facility Agent shall (i) if requested in writing to do so by a Lender, make enquiry and advise the Lenders as to the performance or observance of any of the provisions of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by any Obligor or as to the existence of an Event of Default and (ii) inform the Lenders promptly of any Event of Default of which the Facility Agent has actual knowledge.
The Facility Agent shall not be deemed to have actual knowledge of the falsehood or incompleteness of any representation or warranty made or deemed repeated by the Obligors or actual knowledge of the occurrence of any Default unless a Lender or an Obligor shall have given written notice thereof to the Facility Agent in its capacity as the Facility Agent. Any information acquired by the Facility Agent other than specifically in its capacity as the Facility Agent shall not be deemed to be information acquired by the Facility Agent in its capacity as the Facility Agent.
The Facility Agent may, without any liability to account to the Lenders, generally engage in any kind of banking or trust business with the Obligors or with any Obligor's subsidiaries or associated companies or with a Lender as if it were not the Facility Agent.
Page 96

SECTION 10.11. Employment of Agents.
In performing its duties and exercising its rights, powers, discretions and remedies under or pursuant to this Agreement or the Loan Documents, each Agent shall be entitled to employ and pay agents to do anything which such Agent is empowered to do under or pursuant to this Agreement or the Loan Documents (including the receipt of money and documents and the payment of money); provided that, unless otherwise provided herein, including without limitation Section 11.3, the employment of such agents shall be for such Agent's account, and to act or refrain from taking action in reliance on the opinion of, or advice or information obtained from, any lawyer, banker, broker, accountant, valuer or any other person believed by such Agent in good faith to be competent to give such opinion, advice or information.
SECTION 10.12. Distribution of Payments.
The Facility Agent shall pay promptly to the order of each Lender that Lender's Percentage Share of every sum of money received by the Facility Agent pursuant to this Agreement or the Loan Documents (with the exception of any amounts payable pursuant to the Fee Letter and any amounts which, by the terms of this Agreement or the Loan Documents, are paid to the Facility Agent for the account of the Facility Agent alone or specifically for the account of one or more Lenders) and until so paid such amount shall be held by the Facility Agent on trust absolutely for that Lender.
SECTION 10.13. Reimbursement
The Facility Agent shall have no liability to pay any sum to a Lender until it has itself received payment of that sum. If, however, the Facility Agent does pay any sum to a Lender on account of any amount prospectively due to that Lender pursuant to Section 10.12 before it has itself received payment of that amount, and the Facility Agent does not in fact receive payment within two (2) Business Days after the date on which that payment was required to be made by the terms of this Agreement or the Loan Documents, that Lender will, on demand by the Facility Agent, refund to the Facility Agent an amount equal to the amount received by it, together with an amount sufficient to reimburse the Facility Agent for any amount which the Facility Agent may certify that it has been required to pay by way of interest on money borrowed to fund the amount in question during the period beginning on the date on which that amount was required to be paid by the terms of this Agreement or the Loan Documents and ending on the date on which the Facility Agent receives reimbursement.
SECTION 10.14. Instructions.
Where an Agent is authorised or directed to act or refrain from acting in accordance with the instructions of the Lenders or of the Required Lenders each of the Lenders shall provide such Agent with instructions within three (3) Business Days of such Agent's request (which request may be made orally or in writing). If a Lender does not provide such Agent with instructions within that period, that Lender shall be bound by the decision of such Agent. Nothing in this Section 10.14 shall limit the right of such Agent to take, or refrain from taking, any action without obtaining the instructions of the Lenders or the Required Lenders if such Agent in its
Page 97

discretion considers it necessary or appropriate to take, or refrain from taking, such action in order to preserve the rights of the Lenders under or in connection with this Agreement or the Loan Documents. In that event, such Agent will notify the Lenders of the action taken by it as soon as reasonably practicable, and the Lenders agree to ratify any action taken by the Facility Agent pursuant to this Section 10.14.
SECTION 10.15. Payments.
All amounts payable to a Lender under this Section 10.15 shall be paid to such account at such bank as that Lender may from time to time direct in writing to the Facility Agent.
SECTION 10.16. "Know your customer" Checks.
The Obligors will promptly on any Lender's request supply to it any documentation or other evidence that is reasonably required by that Lender for itself to enable that Lender:
(a)    to carry out and be satisfied it has complied with all necessary "know your customer" or other similar checks that that Lender or any such person is obliged to carry out under all applicable laws and regulations pursuant to the transactions contemplated in the Loan Documents; and
(b)    to comply with its obligations under all applicable laws and regulations to prevent money laundering and corruption and to conduct ongoing monitoring of the business relationship with the Obligors.
SECTION 10.17. No Fiduciary Relationship.
Except as provided in Section 10.12, no Agent shall have any fiduciary relationship with or be deemed to be a trustee of or for any other person and nothing contained in this Agreement or any Loan Document shall constitute a partnership between any two or more Lenders or between either Agent and any other person.
ARTICLE XI

The provisions of this Agreement and of each other Loan Document may from time to time be amended, modified or waived, if such amendment, modification or waiver is in writing and consented to by the Borrower and the Required Lenders; provided that no such amendment, modification or waiver which would:
(a)    modify any requirement hereunder that any particular action be taken by all the Lenders or by the Required Lenders shall be effective unless consented to by each Lender;
Page 98

(b)    modify this Section 11.1 or change the definition of "Required Lenders" shall be made without the consent of each Lender;
(c)    increase the Commitment of any Lender shall be made without the consent of such Lender;

(g)    affect adversely the interests, rights or obligations of the Facility Agent in its capacity as such shall be made without consent of the Facility Agent.
No failure or delay on the part of the Facility Agent or any Lender in exercising any power or right under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power or right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power or right. No notice to or demand on the Borrower or the Guarantor in any case shall entitle it to any notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. No waiver or approval by the Facility Agent or any Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall, except as may be otherwise stated in such waiver or approval, be applicable to subsequent transactions. No waiver or approval hereunder shall require any similar or dissimilar waiver or approval thereafter to be granted hereunder. The Lenders hereby agree, at any time and from time to time that the Nordea Agreement or the Bank of Nova Scotia Agreement is amended or refinanced, to negotiate in good faith to amend this Agreement to conform any representations, warranties, covenants or events of default in this Agreement to the amendments made to any substantively comparable provisions in the Nordea Agreement or the Bank of Nova Scotia Agreement or any refinancing thereof.
SECTION 11.2. Notices.
(a)    All notices and other communications provided to any party hereto under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be in writing, by facsimile or by electronic mail and addressed, delivered or transmitted to such party at its address, facsimile number or electronic mail address set forth below its signature hereto or set forth in the Lender Assignment Agreement or at such other address, or facsimile number as may be designated by such party in a notice to the other parties. Any notice, if mailed and properly addressed with postage prepaid or if properly addressed and sent by pre-paid courier service, shall be deemed given when received; any notice, if transmitted by facsimile, shall be deemed given when

(b)    So long as KfW IPEX is the Facility Agent, an Obligor may provide to the Facility Agent all information, documents and other materials that it furnishes to the Facility Agent hereunder or any other Loan Document (and any guaranties, security agreements and other agreements relating thereto), including, without limitation, all notices, requests, financial statements, financial and other reports, certificates and other materials, but excluding any such communication that (i) relates to a request for a new, or a conversion of an existing advance or other extension of credit (including any election of an interest rate or interest period relating thereto), (ii) relates to the payment of any principal or other amount due hereunder or any other Loan Document prior to the scheduled date therefor, (iii) provides notice of any Default or Event of Default or (iv) is required to be delivered to satisfy any condition precedent to the effectiveness of the Agreement and/or any advance or other extension of credit hereunder (all such non-excluded communications being referred to herein collectively as "Communications"), by transmitting the Communications in an electronic/soft medium in a format acceptable to the Facility Agent at celine.brochard@kfw.de and maritime-industries-administration@kfw.de (or such other email address notified by the Facility Agent to the Borrower); provided that any Communication requested pursuant to Section 7.1.1(h) shall be in a format acceptable to the Borrower and the Facility Agent.
(c)    Each Obligor agrees that the Facility Agent may make such items included in the Communications as the Borrower may specifically agree available to the Lenders by posting such notices, at the option of the Borrower, on Intralinks or any similar such platform (the "Platform") acceptable to the Borrower. Although the primary web portal is secured with a dual firewall and a User ID/Password Authorisation System and the Platform is secured through a single user per deal authorisation method whereby each user may access the Platform only on a deal-by-deal basis, each Obligor acknowledges that (i) the distribution of material through an electronic medium is not necessarily secure and that there are confidentiality and other risks associated with such distribution, (ii) the Platform is provided "as is" and "as available" and (iii) neither the Facility Agent nor any of its Affiliates warrants the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the Communications or the Platform and each expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in the Communications or the Platform. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including, without limitation, 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 the Facility Agent or any of its Affiliates in connection with the Platform.
(d)    The Facility Agent agrees that the receipt of Communications by the Facility Agent at its e-mail address set forth above shall constitute effective delivery of such
Page 100

Communications to the Facility Agent for purposes hereunder and any other Loan Document (and any guaranties, security agreements and other agreements relating thereto).
SECTION 11.3. Payment of Costs and Expenses.
The Borrower agrees to pay on demand all reasonable expenses of the Facility Agent and KfW (including the reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of counsel to the Facility Agent, and of local counsel, if any, who may be retained by counsel to the Facility Agent and, in the case of KfW, counsel retained by KfW with the Borrower's prior approval in connection with the initial syndication of the Loan) in connection with the initial syndication of the Loan and any amendments, waivers, consents, supplements or other modifications to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document as may from time to time hereafter be required, whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated. In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay (i) reasonable fees and out of pocket expenses of counsel to the Facility Agent and (if and to the extent that KfW uses the same counsel as that of the Facility Agent) of counsel to KfW in connection with the funding under this Agreement. The Borrower further agrees to pay, and to save the Facility Agent and the Lenders harmless from all liability for, any stamp, recording, documentary or other similar taxes arising from the execution, delivery or enforcement of this Agreement or the borrowing hereunder or any other Loan Documents. The Borrower also agrees to reimburse the Facility Agent and each Lender upon demand for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and legal expenses) incurred by the Facility Agent or such Lender in connection with (x) the negotiation of any restructuring or "work-out", whether or not consummated, of any Obligations and (y) the enforcement of any Obligations. For the purposes of this Section 11.3, references to "KfW" shall mean KfW only in its capacity as set out in sub-clauses (a) and (b) of the definition of "KfW".
SECTION 11.4. Indemnification.
In consideration of the execution and delivery of this Agreement by each Lender and the extension of the Commitments, the Borrower hereby indemnifies and holds harmless the Facility Agent, each Lender and each of their respective Affiliates and their respective officers, advisors, directors and employees (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel), joint or several, that may be incurred by or asserted or awarded against any Indemnified Party (including, without limitation, in connection with any investigation, litigation or proceeding or the preparation of a defence in connection therewith), in each case arising out of or in connection with or by reason of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any actual or proposed use of the proceeds of the Loans (collectively, the "Indemnified Liabilities"), except to the extent such claim, damage, loss, liability or expense (i) is found in a final, non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted primarily from such Indemnified Party's gross negligence or wilful misconduct or the material breach by such Indemnified Party of its obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document and which breach is not attributable to the Borrower's own breach of the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan
Page 101

Document or (ii) relates to a FATCA Deduction required to be made by a party to this Agreement. In the case of an investigation, litigation or other proceeding to which the indemnity in this paragraph applies, such indemnity shall be effective whether or not such investigation, litigation or proceeding is brought by the Borrower, any of its directors, security holders or creditors, an Indemnified Party or any other person or an Indemnified Party is otherwise a party thereto. Each Indemnified Party shall (a) furnish the Borrower with prompt notice of any action, suit or other claim covered by this Section 11.4, (b) not agree to any settlement or compromise of any such action, suit or claim without the Borrower's prior consent, (c) shall cooperate fully in the Borrower's defence of any such action, suit or other claim (provided that the Borrower shall reimburse such Indemnified Party for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred pursuant hereto) and (d) at the Borrower's request, permit the Borrower to assume control of the defence of any such claim, other than regulatory, supervisory or similar investigations, provided that (i) the Borrower acknowledges in writing its obligations to indemnify the Indemnified Party in accordance with the terms herein in connection with such claims, (ii) the Borrower shall keep the Indemnified Party fully informed with respect to the conduct of the defence of such claim, (iii) the Borrower shall consult in good faith with the Indemnified Party (from time to time and before taking any material decision) about the conduct of the defence of such claim, (iv) the Borrower shall conduct the defence of such claim properly and diligently taking into account its own interests and those of the Indemnified Party, (v) the Borrower shall employ counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party and at the Borrower's expense, and (vi) the Borrower shall not enter into a settlement with respect to such claim unless either (A) such settlement involves only the payment of a monetary sum, does not include any performance by or an admission of liability or responsibility on the part of the Indemnified Party, and contains a provision unconditionally releasing the Indemnified Party and each other indemnified party from, and holding all such persons harmless, against, all liability in respect of claims by any releasing party or (B) the Indemnified Party provides written consent to such settlement (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Notwithstanding the Borrower's election to assume the defence of such action, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defence of such action and the Borrower shall bear the fees, costs and expenses of such separate counsel if (i) the use of counsel chosen by the Borrower to represent the Indemnified Party would present such counsel with an actual or potential conflict of interest, (ii) the actual or potential defendants in, or targets of, any such action include both the Borrower and the Indemnified Party and the Indemnified Party shall have concluded that there may be legal defences available to it which are different from or additional to those available to the Borrower and determined that it is necessary to employ separate counsel in order to pursue such defences (in which case the Borrower shall not have the right to assume the defence of such action on the Indemnified Party's behalf), (iii) the Borrower shall not have employed counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party to represent the Indemnified Party within a reasonable time after notice of the institution of such action, or (iv) the Borrower authorises the Indemnified Party to employ separate counsel at the Borrower's expense. The Borrower acknowledges that none of the Indemnified Parties shall have any liability (whether direct or indirect, in contract, tort or otherwise) to the Borrower or any of its security holders or creditors for or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, except to the extent such liability is determined in a final non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted primarily from such Indemnified Party's gross negligence or wilful misconduct. In no
Page 102

event, however, shall any Indemnified Party be liable on any theory of liability for any special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (including, without limitation, any loss of profits, business or anticipated savings). If and to the extent that the foregoing undertaking may be unenforceable for any reason, the Borrower hereby agrees to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the Indemnified Liabilities which is permissible under applicable law.
SECTION 11.5. Survival.
The obligations of the Borrower under Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 11.3 and 11.4 and the obligations of the Lenders under Section 10.1, shall in each case survive any termination of this Agreement and the payment in full of all Obligations. The representations and warranties made by the Borrower in this Agreement and in each other Loan Document shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and each such other Loan Document.
SECTION 11.6. Severability; Independence of Obligations.
Any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such provision and such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Agreement or such Loan Document or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.
The Borrower agrees that the Borrower's obligations under this Agreement (including its obligation to repay the Loan) (a) are independent of the Construction Contract and (b) will not be invalidated, suspended or limited in any way by any termination, rescission, cancellation, invalidation, non-performance or non-completion of the Construction Contract or any other contract, agreement or arrangement relating thereto (other than the Loan Documents) or any dispute or claim between the Borrower and/or the Builder and/or any suppliers and/or any other third parties under or in connection with the Construction Contract, or any defence thereto, or any insolvency proceedings relating to the Builder or any other Person.
SECTION 11.7. Headings.
The various headings of this Agreement and of each other Loan Document are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement or such other Loan Document or any provisions hereof or thereof.
SECTION 11.8. Execution in Counterparts.
This Agreement may be executed by the parties hereto in several counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original and all of which shall constitute together but one and the same agreement.
Page 103

SECTION 11.9. Third Party Rights.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, no term of this Agreement is enforceable by a person who is not a party to it.

From and after the date that the Facility Agent accepts such Lender Assignment Agreement, (x) the Assignee Lender thereunder shall be deemed automatically to have become a party hereto and to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned or transferred to such Assignee Lender in connection with such Lender Assignment Agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, and (y) the assignor Lender, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned or transferred by it, shall be released from its obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, other than any obligations arising prior to the effective date of such assignment. Except to the extent resulting from a subsequent change in law, in no event shall the Borrower be required to pay to any Assignee Lender any amount under Sections 4.2(c), 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay had no such assignment been made. Such assignor Lender or such Assignee Lender must also pay a processing fee to the Facility Agent upon delivery of any Lender Assignment Agreement in the amount of $2,000 (and shall also reimburse the Facility Agent and KfW for any reasonable out-of-pocket costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, incurred in connection with the assignment).

(e)    the Borrower shall not be required to pay any amount under Sections 4.2(c), 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay had no participating interest been sold;
(f)    each Lender that sells a participation under this Section 11.11.2 shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts of (and stated interest on) each of the Participant's interest in that Lender's portion of the Loan, Commitments or other interests hereunder (the "Participant Register"). The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender may treat each person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes hereunder; and
(g)    KfW IPEX may not sell participating interests pursuant to this Section 11.11.2 that, when taken together with Loans and/or Commitments sold by KfW IPEX pursuant to Section 11.11.1, result in KfW IPEX's share of the aggregate principal amount of the Loan and/or the aggregate Commitments being less than 50% of the total Loan or total Commitments, without the written consent of the Borrower (which consent shall not be required following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default or a Prepayment Event).
Each Obligor acknowledges and agrees that each Participant, for purposes of Sections 4.2(c), 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and clause (e) of 7.1.1, shall be considered a Lender.

The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Facility Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this
Page 107

Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by any Obligor or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
SECTION 11.12. Other Transactions.
Nothing contained herein shall preclude the Facility Agent or any Lender from engaging in any transaction, in addition to those contemplated by this Agreement or any other Loan Document, with the Borrower or any of its Affiliates in which the Borrower or such Affiliate is not restricted hereby from engaging with any other Person.
SECTION 11.13. Hermes Insurance Policy.

(c)    The parties have entered into this Agreement on the basis that the Hermes Insurance Policy shall contain the following terms and should such terms not be included within the Hermes Insurance Policy, then the Borrower may cancel the Commitment(s):
(i)    25% of the Hermes Fee as in effect on the date of issuance of the Hermes Insurance Policy ("First Fee") will be payable to the Hermes Agent or Hermes in Dollars within two (2) Business Days of receipt by the Borrower of demand from the Hermes Agent following the later to occur of (i) the issue of the Hermes Insurance Policy and (ii) the Effective Date;
(ii)    the balance of the Hermes Fee (being the amount thereof under paragraph (b) above less the First Fee) ("Second Fee") will be payable in Dollars, to the Hermes Agent or Hermes on the Delivery Date;
(iii)    if the Commitments are cancelled in full by the Borrower or the Lenders on or prior to the Delivery Date (including, for the avoidance of doubt, subsequent to disbursement of the Loan and prepayment thereof by the Borrower under Section 3.7), Hermes shall be required to reimburse the Hermes Agent the amount of the First Fee less an administration fee (such administration fee to be no greater than 5% of the amount refunded but in any event not exceeding EUR2,500);
(iv)    if the Commitments are cancelled in part by the Borrower on or prior to the Delivery Date (including, for the avoidance of doubt, subsequent to disbursement of the Loan and prepayment thereof by the Borrower under Section 3.7), Hermes shall be required to reimburse the Hermes
Page 108

Agent an amount equal to a corresponding proportion of the First Fee, based on the proportion of the aggregate Commitments prior to such cancellation to the aggregate Commitments after giving effect to such cancellation, less an administration fee (such administration fee to be no greater than 5% of the amount refunded but in any event not exceeding EUR2,500); and
(v)    if, after the Delivery Date, the Borrower prepays all or part of the Loan in accordance with this Agreement, Hermes shall be required to reimburse the Hermes Agent an amount equal to a corresponding proportion of the unexpired portion of the Hermes Fee, having regard to the amount of the prepayment and the remaining term of the Loan less the sum of (x) a break funding fee equal to 20% of the unexpired portion of the Hermes Fee and (y) an administration fee (such fee to be no greater than 5% of the amount refunded but in any event not exceeding EUR2,500).
Where the Hermes Agent receives any reimbursement of any Hermes Fee, other than the First Fee prior to the date the Borrower is reimbursed out of proceeds of the Loan for that First Fee, such reimbursed amount received from Hermes shall be used in prepayment of the Loan without any further notice by the Hermes Agent to the Borrower or, where the Loan has already been prepaid in full, any such amount shall be paid directly to the Borrower or as it may direct. The Hermes Agent shall inform the Borrower as soon as reasonably possible after it becomes aware of any decrease in the Hermes Fee which may result in a reimbursement by Hermes of an excess amount to the Hermes Agent and a consequential prepayment of the Loan under this Section.
SECTION 11.13.2. Obligations of the Borrower.
(a)    Provided that the Hermes Insurance Policy complies with Section 11.13.1, the Borrower shall pay (a) the First Fee to the Hermes Agent in accordance with section 11.13.1(c)(i) and (b) the Second Fee to the Hermes Agent on the Delivery Date. In each case, if received by the Hermes Agent, the Hermes Agent shall pay such amount to Hermes.
(b)    Provided that the Hermes Insurance Policy complies with Section 11.13.1, the Borrower shall pay to the Hermes Agent an issue fee of EUR12,500 for the issue of the Hermes Insurance Policy at the same time that the First Fee is payable.
SECTION 11.13.3. Obligations of the Hermes Agent and the Lenders.
(a)    Promptly upon receipt of the Hermes Insurance Policy from Hermes, the Hermes Agent shall (subject to any confidentiality undertakings given to Hermes by the Hermes Agent pursuant to the terms of the Hermes Insurance Policy) send a copy thereof to the Borrower.
Page 109

(b)    The Hermes Agent shall perform such acts or provide such information which are, acting reasonably, within its power so to perform or so to provide, as required by Hermes under the Hermes Insurance Policy and as are necessary to ensure that the Lenders obtain the support of Hermes pursuant to the Hermes Insurance Policy.
(c)    The Hermes Agent shall (in the circumstances described in Section 11.13.1(c)(iii), (iv) or (v)):

(ii)    use its reasonable endeavours to maximise the amount of any reimbursement of the Hermes Fee to which the Hermes Agent is entitled;
(iii)    pay to the Borrower the full amount of any reimbursement of the Hermes Fee that the Hermes Agent receives from Hermes within two (2) Business Days of receipt with same day value; and
(iv)    relay the good faith concerns of the Borrower to Hermes regarding the amount it is required to pay to Hermes or the amount of any reimbursement to which the Hermes Agent is entitled, it being agreed that the Hermes Agent's obligation shall be no greater than simply to pass on to Hermes the Borrower's concerns.
(d)    Each Lender will cooperate with the Hermes Agent, the Facility Agent and each other Lender, and take such action and/or refrain from taking such action as may be reasonably necessary, to ensure that the Hermes Insurance Policy and each CIRR Agreement continue in full force and effect and shall indemnify and hold harmless each other Lender in the event that the Hermes Insurance Policy or such CIRR Agreement (as the case may be) does not continue in full force and effect due to its gross negligence or wilful default.

(a)    If the provisions of Section 3.2(c), 3.2(d) or 9.1.11 apply (and having regard to clause (b) below), the Facility Agent, the Borrower and the Lenders (or, in the case of Section 3.2(c) or 3.2(d), any affected Lender) shall discuss in good faith (but without obligation) for a period (the "Mitigation Period") of not less than 30 days (and which in the case of Section 3.2(d) shall commence on the first day of the 50-day period referred to in that Section and, in the case of Section 9.1.11, shall run concurrently with the 30 day period referred to in that Section) after (x) the date on which the Illegality Notice is given or (y) the date of Section 9.1.11 becomes applicable, as the case may be:
(i)    in the case of Section 3.2(c) or 3.2(d), what steps may be open to the relevant Lender to mitigate or remove such circumstances (including, without limitation, the possibility of assigning the Lender's Commitment to an Affiliate or another Lending Office); and
(ii)    in the case of Section 9.1.11, the circumstances in which Section 9.1.11 has become applicable and whether there are any steps or actions which can be taken to remove the effect of Section 9.1.11 and/or reinstate the Hermes Insurance Policy.
If the provisions of Section 3.2(d) apply, if requested by the Borrower, the affected Lender shall, without limiting such Lender's obligation to enter into discussions as set forth above in this Section 11.17(a), use commercially reasonable efforts to transfer its portion of the Loan to one or more third parties at par during the Mitigation Period in the manner contemplated by Section 3.2(d).
(b)    To the extent required by or considered necessary by any Party, the Lenders (and, in the case of Section 3.2(c) or 3.2(d), any affected Lender) shall use commercially reasonable efforts to include Hermes in all foregoing discussions.
(c)    If an Illegality Notice shall be given by any Lender during the period falling 20 days prior to the anticipated Delivery Date, the affected Lender will use all reasonable efforts to accelerate the mitigation steps of the type described or to be discussed pursuant to this Section to try and enable the Commitment of such Lender to still be available for drawing by the Borrower one (1) Business Day (where the
Page 113

Loan is to be denominated in EUR) or two (2) Business Days (where the Loan is to be denominated in Dollars) prior to the Delivery Date in the manner contemplated by this Agreement.
SECTION 11.18. Modification and/or discontinuation of benchmarks
(a)    If a Screen Rate Replacement Event has occurred then, promptly thereafter, the Facility Agent and the Borrower will enter into negotiations with a view to amend this Agreement to replace the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, the EURO Rate with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein), giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated syndicated credit facilities for such alternative benchmarks where such negotiations will take into account the then current market standards and will be conducted with a view to reducing or eliminating, to the extent reasonably practicable, any transfer of economic value from one party to another party (any such proposed rate, a "Benchmark Successor Rate"), together with any proposed Benchmark Successor Rate Conforming Changes and any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the fifth Business Day after the Facility Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrower unless, prior to such time, the Required Lenders have delivered to the Facility Agent written notice that such Lenders does not accept such amendment. Such Benchmark Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Facility Agent, such Benchmark Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner as otherwise reasonably determined by the Facility Agent.
(b)    If no Benchmark Successor Rate has been determined and either (x) the circumstances set out in paragraph (a) of the definition of "Screen Rate Replacement Event" in Section 1.1 exist or (y) the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred, the Facility Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, (i) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain the Loan shall be suspended and (ii) Screen Rate shall no longer be utilized in determining the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, the EURO Rate. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending Loan Request.
(c)    Until such time as a Benchmark Successor Rate and Benchmark Successor Rate Conforming Changes have been determined and agreed and without prejudice to the obligation of the parties to enter into negotiations with a view to determining or agreeing a Benchmark Successor Rate pursuant to paragraph (a) above, for any Interest Period starting after the Screen Rate Replacement Event, the LIBO Rate or, as the case may be, the EURO Rate shall be replaced by the weighted average of the rates notified to the Agent by each Lender five Business Days prior to the first day of that Interest Period, to be that which expresses as a percentage rate per annum the cost the relevant Lender would have of funding an amount equal to its participation
Page 114

in the Loan during the relevant Interest Period from whatever source it may reasonably select. If such amount is less than zero, it shall be deemed to be zero.
(d)    Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of Benchmark Successor Rate shall provide that in no event shall such Benchmark Successor Rate be less than zero for purposes of this Agreement.
(e)    Section 3.4.6 shall not apply following the Screen Rate Replacement Event.
(f)    Where paragraph (a) above applies, the Obligors shall, within three Business Days of demand, reimburse the Facility Agent for the amount of all costs and expenses (including legal fees) reasonably incurred by the Facility Agent in responding to, evaluating, negotiating or complying with the requirements set out in that paragraph.

ARTICLE XII
GUARANTEE

SECTION 12.1. Guarantee and Indemnity
(a)    The Guarantor irrevocably and unconditionally:
(i)    guarantees to each Lender punctual performance by the Borrower of the Borrower's obligations under the Loan Documents;
(ii)    undertakes with each Lender that whenever the Borrower does not pay any amount when due under or in connection with any Loan Document, the Guarantor shall on demand pay that amount as if it was the principal obligor within 2 Business Days of such demand; and
Page 115

(iii)    agrees with each Lender that if any obligation guaranteed by it is or becomes unenforceable, invalid or illegal, it will, as an independent and primary obligation, indemnify that Lender immediately on demand against any cost, loss or liability it incurs as a result of the Borrower not paying any amount which would, but for such unenforceability, invalidity or illegality, have been payable by it under any Loan Document on the date when it would have been due. The amount payable by the Guarantor under this indemnity will not exceed the amount it would have had to pay under this ARTICLE XII if the amount claimed had been recoverable on the basis of a guarantee.
SECTION 12.2. Continuing guarantee
This guarantee is a continuing guarantee and will extend to the ultimate balance of sums payable by the Borrower under the Loan Documents, regardless of any intermediate payment or discharge in whole or in part.
SECTION 12.3. Reinstatement
If any discharge, release or arrangement (whether in respect of the obligations of the Borrower or any security for those obligations or otherwise) is made by a Lender in whole or in part on the basis of any payment, security or other disposition which is avoided or must be restored in insolvency, liquidation, administration or otherwise, without limitation, then the liability of the Guarantor under this ARTICLE XII will continue or be reinstated as if the discharge release or arrangement had not occurred.
SECTION 12.4. Waiver of defences
The obligations of the Guarantor under this clause ARTICLE XII will not be affected by an act, omission, matter or thing which, but for this clause, would reduce, release or prejudice any of its obligations under this clause ARTICLE XII (without limitation and whether or not known to it or any Lender) including:

CRUISE DEBT HOLIDAY PRINCIPLES
This document sets out the key principles for a temporary suspension of repayments and testing of financial covenants (the “Debt Holiday”) for Hermes-covered loan agreements (“Loan Agreement” in connection with the financing of cruise vessels.
1    Preamble
The current Corona-pandemic impacts the global tourism industry including all cruise operators ("Companies" or if related to a individual operator "Company"). All cruise ship operation will be ceased or is already ceased globally mainly due to government order directly or indirectly by port or border closures. The shutdown of cruise operations may have substantial negative impact on European cruise related jobs as well as on the cruise yards with its vast supplier and subcontractor network.
Since all Companies are effected in the same manner governmental support shall apply to all Companies in a coordinated process with equal treatment of all cruise operators. The intention of the Debt Holiday Initiative is to provide an interim relief to the Companies in its debt service obligations under existing financings. Apart form supporting the Companies, it is the firm understanding of the Lenders together with the respective ECAs that Companies taking advantage of the relief shall use its best endeavors fulfilling their contractual obligations under their existing shipbuilding contracts with the yard, i.e. do not unreasonably, unduly, and without consultation delay instalments and scheduled vessel deliveries and work reasonably together with the yards to resolve any crisis-related construction delays. For the avoidance of doubt, all measures to maintain a sufficient liquidity position of the Company during the crisis and later recovery phase will be considered reasonably by ECA in regards to the below Terms and Conditions.
A support package which is based on the Terms and Conditions below has been coordinated with Hermes applicable to all disbursed and undisbursed Hermes-covered CIRR export financings ("Export Financing") for the cruise sector.
Individual amendments of loan agreements shall be based on the Terms and Conditions outlined below.
2    Effective Date and Term

This Guarantee is made with full recourse to the Guarantor and pursuant to and upon all the warranties, representations, covenants and agreements on the part of the Guarantor contained herein, in the Agreement and the other [Loan] Documents and otherwise in writing in connection herewith or therewith. It is the desire and intent of the Guarantor and the Agent that this Guarantee shall be enforced against the Guarantor to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.
Section 4.12. Judgment. If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum payable hereunder (the “Guaranty Currency”) into another currency (the “Other Currency”), the Guarantor agrees that the rate of exchange used will be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, the Agent could purchase the Guaranty Currency with the Other Currency on the business day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of the Guarantor in respect of any sum due hereunder will, notwithstanding any judgment in the Other Currency, be discharged only to the extent that, on the date the Guarantor makes payment to the Agent of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Other Currency, the Agent may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase the Guaranty Currency with the Other Currency; if the amount of the Guaranty Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Agent in the Guaranty Currency, the Guarantor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Agent against such loss, and if the

9


amount of the Guaranty Currency so purchased exceeds the amount originally due to the Agent in the Guaranty Currency, the Agent agrees to remit to the Guarantor such excess.

GUARANTEE
Section 2.01. Guarantee.
Each Guarantor irrevocably, absolutely and unconditionally guarantees, jointly with the other Guarantors party hereto and severally, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, the due and punctual payment and performance of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether such Guaranteed Obligations are now existing or hereafter incurred, and whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment, early termination or otherwise. Each of the Guarantors further agrees that the Guaranteed Obligations may be extended, increased or renewed, amended or modified, in whole or in part, without notice to, or further assent from, such Guarantor and that such Guarantor will remain bound upon its guarantee hereunder notwithstanding any such extension, increase, renewal, amendment or modification of any Guaranteed Obligation. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each of the Guarantors (a) waives promptness, diligence, presentment to, demand of payment from, and protest to, such Guarantor, any other




Guarantor or the Borrower of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and (b) also waives notice of acceptance of its guarantee and notice of protest for nonpayment.
Section 2.02. Guarantee of Payment.
Each of the Guarantors further agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, that its guarantee hereunder constitutes a guarantee of payment when due (whether or not any bankruptcy or similar proceeding shall have stayed the accrual of collection of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or operated as a discharge thereof) and not of collection, and waives any right to require that any resort be had by the Agent or any other Person to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of the Agent or any other Person in favor of any other Guarantor party hereto, any Other Guarantor or any other Person or any collateral security or other credit support. The obligations of each Guarantor hereunder are independent of the obligations of any other Guarantor party hereto, any Other Guarantor or the Borrower, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against each Guarantor whether or not action is brought against any other Guarantor party hereto, any Other Guarantor or the Borrower and whether or not any other Guarantor party hereto, any Other Guarantor or the Borrower is joined in any such action or actions. Any payment required to be made by a Guarantor hereunder may be required by the Agent on any number of occasions.
Section 2.03. No Limitations.
(a)    Except for termination or release of a Guarantor’s obligations hereunder as
expressly provided in Section 4.10 (but without prejudice to Section 2.04), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, 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 Guaranteed Obligations, any impossibility in the performance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and except for termination or release of a Guarantor’s obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms of Section 4.10 (but without prejudice to Section 2.04), the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be discharged impaired or otherwise affected by (i) the failure of the Agent or any other Person to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy under the provisions of any [Loan] Document or otherwise; (ii) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or any release from any of the terms or provisions of, any Guaranteed Obligation, any [Loan] Document or any other agreement, including with respect to any other Guarantor under this Guarantee or non-perfection or release of collateral; (iii) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of the Guaranteed Obligations; (iv) any change in the corporate existence, structure or ownership of the Borrower, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor, the lack of legal existence of the Borrower, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor or legal obligation to discharge any of the Guaranteed Obligations by the Borrower, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, in any insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of the Borrower, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor; (v) the existence of any claim, set-off or other rights that any Guarantor may have at any time against the Borrower, the Agent or any other Person, whether in connection




with the Agreement, the other [Loan] Documents or any unrelated transaction; (vi) this Guarantee having been determined (on whatsoever grounds) to be invalid, non-binding or unenforceable against any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor ab initio or at any time after the date hereof; or (vii) any other circumstance (including statute of limitations), any act or omission that may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of any Guarantor or otherwise operate as a defense to, or discharge of, the Borrower, such Guarantor, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor or other surety as a matter of law or equity (in each case, other than the occurrence of the Date of Full Satisfaction). Anything contained in this Guarantee to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of each Guarantor under this Guarantee shall be limited to an aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not render its obligations under this Guarantee subject to avoidance as a fraudulent transfer or conveyance under Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States or any comparable provisions of any similar federal, state or foreign law.
(b)    To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and except for termination or release of a Guarantor’s obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms of Section 4.10 (but without prejudice to Section 2.04), each Guarantor waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Borrower, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor or the unenforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Borrower, any other Guarantor party hereto or any Other Guarantor, other than the occurrence of the Date of Full Satisfaction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor waives any and all suretyship defenses.
(c)    Each Guarantor acknowledges that it will receive indirect benefits from the arrangements contemplated by the [Loan] Documents and that the waivers set forth in this Guarantee are knowingly made in contemplation of such benefits.
Section 2.04. Reinstatement.
Notwithstanding anything to contrary contained in this Guarantee, each of the Guarantors agrees that (a) its guarantee hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any Guaranteed Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by the Agent or any other Person upon the bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization (or any analogous proceeding in any jurisdiction) of the Borrower or any other Guarantor or otherwise and (b) the provisions of this Section 2.04 shall survive the termination of this Guarantee.
Section 2.05. Agreement To Pay; Subrogation.
In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right that the Agent or any other Person has at law or in equity against any Guarantor by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Borrower or any other Guarantor to pay any Guaranteed Obligation when and as the same shall become due (after giving effect to any applicable grace periods), whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, each Guarantor hereby promises to and will forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Agent for distribution to the applicable beneficiaries in cash the amount of such unpaid Guaranteed Obligation. Upon payment by any Guarantor of any sums to the Agent as provided above, all rights of such Guarantor against the Borrower or any




other Guarantor arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or otherwise shall in all respects be subject to Section 3.01.
Section 2.06. Information.
Each Guarantor assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of each Borrower’s and each other Guarantor’s financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Guaranteed Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks that such Guarantor assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that none of the Agent or any other Person will have any duty to advise such Guarantor of information known to it or any of them regarding such circumstances or risks.
Section 2.07. Limitation on Obligations Guaranteed.
(a)    Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, the right of recovery against each Guarantor under Article II hereof shall be limited to the maximum amount that can be guaranteed by such Guarantor without rendering such Guarantor’s obligations under Article II hereof void or voidable under applicable law, including, without limitation, the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act (“UFCA”), Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act (“UFTA”) or any similar foreign, federal or state law, in each case after giving full effect to the liability under such guarantee set forth in Article II hereof and its related contribution rights but before taking into account any liabilities under any other guarantee by such Guarantor. For purposes of the foregoing, all guarantees of such Guarantor other than the guarantee under Article II hereof will be deemed to be enforceable and payable after the guaranty under Article II hereof. If any payment shall be required to be made to the Agent under this Guarantee, each Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably agrees it will contribute, to the maximum extent permitted by law, such amounts to each other Guarantor and the Borrower so as to maximize the aggregate amount paid to the Agent under or in connection with this Guarantee and the Agreement. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, this Section 2.07 shall be for the benefit solely of creditors and representatives of creditors of each Guarantor and not for the benefit of such Guarantor or the holders of any Equity Interest in such Guarantor.
(b)    Each Guarantor agrees that Obligations may at any time and from time to time be incurred or permitted in an amount exceeding the maximum liability of such Guarantor under Section 2.07(a) without impairing the guarantee contained in this Article II or affecting the rights and remedies of the Agent or any other Person hereunder.
ARTICLE III
INDEMNITY, SUBROGATION AND SUBORDINATION Section 3.01. Indemnity, Subrogation and Subordination.
Upon payment by any Guarantor of any Guaranteed Obligations, all rights of such Guarantor against the Borrower or any other Guarantor arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or otherwise (whether at law or in equity) shall in all respects be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the prior payment in full of the Obligations until the Date of Full Satisfaction. If any amount shall erroneously be paid to the



Borrower or any other Guarantor on account of (a) such subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or similar right or (b) any such indebtedness of the Borrower or any other Guarantor, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Agent and shall promptly be paid to the Agent to be credited against the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and the other [Loan] Documents. Subject to the foregoing, to the extent that any Guarantor shall, under this Guarantee or the Agreement as a joint and several obligor, repay any of the Obligations (an “Accommodation Payment”), then the Guarantor making such Accommodation Payment shall be entitled to contribution and indemnification from, and be reimbursed by, each of the other Guarantors in an amount equal to a fraction of such Accommodation Payment, the numerator of which fraction is such other Guarantor’s Allocable Amount (as defined below) and the denominator of which is the sum of the Allocable Amounts of all of the Guarantors (including the other Guarantors); provided that such rights of contribution, subrogation, reimbursement and indemnification shall be subordinated to the prior payment of the Obligations until the Date of Full Satisfaction. As of any date of determination, the “Allocable Amount” of each Guarantor or any other Guarantor shall be equal to the maximum amount of liability for Accommodation Payments which could be asserted against such Guarantor hereunder and under the Agreement or any other guarantee to which such other Guarantor is a party in connection therewith without (i) rendering such Guarantor or other Guarantor “insolvent” within the meaning of Section 101 (31) of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States, Section 2 of the UFTA or Section 2 of the UFCA, (ii) leaving such Guarantor or other Guarantor with unreasonably small capital or assets, within the meaning of Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States, Section 4 of the UFTA, or Section 5 of the UFCA, or (iii) leaving such Guarantor or other Guarantor unable to pay its debts as they become due within the meaning of Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States or Section 4 of the UFTA, or Section 5 of the UFCA. No failure on the part of the Borrower, any Guarantor or any other Guarantor to make the payments required by this Section 3.01 (or any other payments required under applicable law or otherwise) shall in any respect limit the obligations and liabilities of any Guarantor with respect to its obligations under this Guarantee, and each Guarantor shall remain liable for the full amount of the obligations of such Guarantor hereunder.
ARTICLE IV

All communications and notices hereunder shall (except as otherwise expressly permitted herein) be in writing and given as provided in Section 11.2 of the Agreement. All communications and notice hereunder to a Guarantor shall be given in care of the Borrower.
Section 4.02. Waivers; Amendment.
(a)    No failure by the Agent or any other Person to exercise, and no delay by any such
Person in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder or under any other [Loan] Document shall operate as a waiver hereof or thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege. The rights, remedies, powers and




privileges herein provided, and provided under each other [Loan] Document, are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, remedies, powers and privileges provided by law. No waiver of any provision of this Guarantee or consent to any departure by any Guarantor therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by Section 4.02(b), and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given.
(b)    Neither this Guarantee nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Agent and the Guarantor or Guarantors with respect to which such waiver, amendment or modification is to apply, subject to any consent required in accordance with Section 11.1 of the Agreement.
Section 4.03. Agent’s Fees and Expenses; Indemnification.
(a)    Each Guarantor, jointly with the other Guarantors and severally, agrees to reimburse the Agent for its reasonable and documented out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred hereunder in accordance with Section 11.3 of the Agreement; provided that each reference therein to “the Borrower” shall be deemed to be a reference to “each Guarantor.”
(b)    Each Guarantor shall indemnify the Indemnified Parties as set forth in Section 11.4 of the Agreement.
Section 4.04. Successors and Assigns.
Whenever in this Guarantee any of the parties hereto is referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include the successors and permitted assigns of such party; and all covenants, promises and agreements by or on behalf of any Guarantor, the Agent or any other Person that are contained in this Guarantee shall bind and inure to the benefit of their respective successors and permitted assigns.

Section 4.05. Representations and Warranties.
All representations and warranties made hereunder shall survive the execution and delivery hereof. Such representations and warranties have been or will be relied upon by the Agent, regardless of any investigation made by the Agent or on its behalf, and shall continue in full force and effect until this Guarantee is terminated as provided in Section 4.10 hereof, or with respect to any individual Guarantor, until such Guarantor is otherwise released from its obligations under this Guarantee in accordance with the terms hereof.
Section 4.06. Counterparts; Effectiveness; Several Agreement.
This Guarantee may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. This Guarantee shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Guarantors and the Agent and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of each Guarantor, the Agent and their respective successors and permitted assigns, subject to Section 4.04. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Guarantee by email or other electronic (including in “.pdf” or “.tif” format) means shall be effective as delivery of a

The words “execute,” “execution,” “signed,” “signature,” and words of like import in or related to any document to be signed in connection with this Guarantee and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include electronic signatures, the electronic matching of assignment terms and contract formations on electronic platforms approved by the Agent, 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 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; provided that notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary the Agent is under no obligation to agree to accept electronic signatures in any form or in any format unless expressly agreed to by the Agent pursuant to procedures approved by it. This Guarantee shall be construed as a separate agreement with respect to each Guarantor and may be amended, restated, modified, supplemented, waived or released with respect to any Guarantor without the approval of any other Guarantor and without affecting the obligations of any other Guarantor hereunder.
Section 4.07. Severability.
If any provision of this Guarantee is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, (a) the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Guarantee shall not be affected or impaired thereby and (b) the parties shall endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions. The invalidity of a provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
Section 4.08. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.

Such service may be made by mailing or delivering a copy of such process to such Guarantor in care of the Process Agent, and each Guarantor hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the Process Agent to accept such service on its behalf. Nothing herein will affect the right of Agent to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or affect Agent’s right to bring any action or proceeding against each Guarantor or its property in the courts of other jurisdictions.
(e)    WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH GUARANTOR AND THE AGENT 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 GUARANTEE OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH GUARANTOR AND THE AGENT (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 GUARANTEE BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 4.08(E).
Section 4.09. Obligations Absolute.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, all rights of the Agent hereunder and all obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional irrespective of (a) any lack of validity or enforceability of the Agreement, any other [Loan] Document, any agreement with respect to any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other agreement or instrument relating to any of the foregoing, (b) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to any departure from the Agreement, any other [Loan] Document or any other agreement or instrument, (c) any release or amendment or waiver of or consent under or departure from any guarantee guaranteeing all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or (d) subject only to termination or release of a Guarantor’s obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms of Section 4.10, but without prejudice to reinstatement rights under Section 2.04, any other circumstance that might




otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Guarantor in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations or this Guarantee.
Section 4.10. Termination or Release.
(a)    This Guarantee and the guarantees made herein shall remain in full force and effect until the earlier of (i) the Date of Full Satisfaction and (ii) the occurrence of a Second Priority Release Event, at which time they shall automatically terminate with respect to all Guaranteed Obligations.
(b)    In connection with any termination or release pursuant to clause (a) above, the Agent shall promptly execute and deliver to any Guarantor, at such Guarantor’s expense, all documents or other instruments that such Guarantor shall reasonably request to evidence such termination or release and shall perform such other actions reasonably requested by such Guarantor to effect such release, including return of certificates, securities and instruments. Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section 4.10 shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Agent.
Section 4.11. Recourse; Limited Obligations.
This Guarantee is made with full recourse to each Guarantor and pursuant to and upon all the warranties, representations, covenants and agreements on the part of such Guarantor contained herein, in the Agreement and the other [Loan] Documents and otherwise in writing in connection herewith or therewith. It is the desire and intent of each Guarantor and the Agent that this Guarantee shall be enforced against each Guarantor to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.
Section 4.12. Judgment. If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum payable hereunder (the “Guaranty Currency”) into another currency (the “Other Currency”), each Guarantor agrees that the rate of exchange used will be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, the Agent could purchase the Guaranty Currency with the Other Currency on the business day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of each Guarantor in respect of any sum due hereunder will, notwithstanding any judgment in the Other Currency, be discharged only to the extent that, on the date such Guarantor makes payment to the Agent of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Other Currency, the Agent may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase the Guaranty Currency with the Other Currency; if the amount of the Guaranty Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Agent in the Guaranty Currency, each Guarantor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Agent against such loss, and if the amount of the Guaranty Currency so purchased exceeds the amount originally due to the Agent in the Guaranty Currency, the Agent agrees to remit to such Guarantor such excess.

GUARANTEE
Section 2.01. Guarantee.
The Guarantor irrevocably, absolutely and unconditionally guarantees, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, the due and punctual payment and performance of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether such Guaranteed Obligations are now existing or hereafter incurred, and whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment, early termination or otherwise. The Guarantor further agrees that the Guaranteed Obligations may be extended, increased or renewed, amended or modified, in whole or in part, without notice to, or further assent from, the Guarantor and that the Guarantor will remain bound upon its guarantee hereunder notwithstanding any such extension, increase, renewal, amendment or modification of any Guaranteed Obligation. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Guarantor (a) waives promptness, diligence, presentment to, demand of payment from, and protest to, the Guarantor or the Borrower of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and (b) also waives notice of acceptance of its guarantee and notice of protest for nonpayment.
Section 2.02. Guarantee of Payment.



The Guarantor further agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, that its guarantee hereunder constitutes a guarantee of payment when due (whether or not any bankruptcy or similar proceeding shall have stayed the accrual of collection of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or operated as a discharge thereof) and not of collection, and waives any right to require that any resort be had by the Agent or any other Person to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of the Agent or any other Person in favor of any Other Guarantor or any other Person or any collateral security or other credit support. The obligations of the Guarantor hereunder are independent of the obligations of any Other Guarantor or the Borrower, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against the Guarantor whether or not action is brought against any Other Guarantor or the Borrower and whether or not any Other Guarantor or the Borrower is joined in any such action or actions. Any payment required to be made by the Guarantor hereunder may be required by the Agent on any number of occasions.
Section 2.03. No Limitations.
(a)    Except for termination or release of the Guarantor’s obligations hereunder
as expressly provided in Section 4.10 (but without prejudice to Section 2.04), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the obligations of the Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, 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 Guaranteed Obligations, any impossibility in the performance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and except for termination or release of the Guarantor’s obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms of Section 4.10 (but without prejudice to Section 2.04), the obligations of the Guarantor hereunder shall not be discharged impaired or otherwise affected by (i) the failure of the Agent or any other Person to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy under the provisions of any [Loan] Document or otherwise; (ii) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or any release from any of the terms or provisions of, any Guaranteed Obligation, any [Loan] Document or any other agreement or non-perfection or release of collateral; (iii) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of the Guaranteed Obligations; (iv) any change in the corporate existence, structure or ownership of the Borrower or any Other Guarantor, the lack of legal existence of the Borrower or any Other Guarantor or legal obligation to discharge any of the Guaranteed Obligations by the Borrower or any Other Guarantor for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, in any insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of the Borrower or any Other Guarantor; (v) the existence of any claim, set-off or other rights that the Guarantor may have at any time against the Borrower, the Agent or any other Person, whether in connection with the Agreement, the other [Loan] Documents or any unrelated transaction; (vi) this Guarantee having been determined (on whatsoever grounds) to be invalid, non-binding or unenforceable against any Other Guarantor ab initio or at any time after the date hereof; or (vii) any other circumstance (including statute of limitations), any act or omission that may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of the Guarantor or otherwise operate as a defense to, or discharge of, the Borrower, the Guarantor or any Other Guarantor or any other surety as a matter of law or equity (in each case, other than the occurrence of the Date of Full Satisfaction). Anything contained in this Guarantee to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of the Guarantor under this Guarantee shall be limited to an aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not




render its obligations under this Guarantee subject to avoidance as a fraudulent transfer or conveyance under Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States or any comparable provisions of any similar federal, state or foreign law.
(b)    To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and except for termination or release of the Guarantor’s obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms of Section 4.10 (but without prejudice to Section 2.04), the Guarantor waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Borrower or any Other Guarantor or the unenforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Borrower or any Other Guarantor, other than the occurrence of the Date of Full Satisfaction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Guarantor waives any and all suretyship defenses.
(c)    The Guarantor acknowledges that it will receive indirect benefits from the arrangements contemplated by the [Loan] Documents and that the waivers set forth in this Guarantee are knowingly made in contemplation of such benefits.
Section 2.04. Reinstatement.
Notwithstanding anything to contrary contained in this Guarantee, the Guarantor agrees that (a) its guarantee hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any Guaranteed Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by the Agent or any other Person upon the bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization (or any analogous proceeding in any jurisdiction) of the Borrower or otherwise and (b) the provisions of this Section 2.04 shall survive the termination of this Guarantee.
Section 2.05. Agreement To Pay; Subrogation.
In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right that the Agent or any other Person has at law or in equity against the Guarantor by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Borrower to pay any Guaranteed Obligation when and as the same shall become due (after giving effect to any applicable grace periods), whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, the Guarantor hereby promises to and will forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Agent for distribution to the applicable beneficiaries in cash the amount of such unpaid Guaranteed Obligation. Upon payment by the Guarantor of any sums to the Agent as provided above, all rights of the Guarantor against the Borrower arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or otherwise shall in all respects be subject to Section 3.01.
Section 2.06. Information.
The Guarantor assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of the Borrower’s financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Guaranteed Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks that the Guarantor assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that none of the Agent or any other Person will have any duty to advise the Guarantor of information known to it or any of them regarding such circumstances or risks.




Section 2.07. Limitation on Obligations Guaranteed.
(a)    Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, the right of recovery against the Guarantor under Article II hereof shall be limited to the maximum amount that can be guaranteed by the Guarantor without rendering the Guarantor’s obligations under Article II hereof void or voidable under applicable law, including, without limitation, the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act (“UFCA”), Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act (“UFTA”) or any similar foreign, federal or state law, in each case after giving full effect to the liability under such guarantee set forth in Article II hereof and its related contribution rights but before taking into account any liabilities under any other guarantee by the Guarantor. For purposes of the foregoing, all guarantees of the Guarantor other than the guarantee under Article II hereof will be deemed to be enforceable and payable after the guaranty under Article II hereof. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, this Section 2.07 shall be for the benefit solely of creditors and representatives of creditors of the Guarantor and not for the benefit of the Guarantor or the holders of any Equity Interest in the Guarantor.
(b)    The Guarantor agrees that Obligations may at any time and from time to time be incurred or permitted in an amount exceeding the maximum liability of the Guarantor under Section 2.07(a) without impairing the guarantee contained in this Article II or affecting the rights and remedies of the Agent or any other Person hereunder.
ARTICLE III
INDEMNITY, SUBROGATION AND SUBORDINATION Section 3.01. Indemnity, Subrogation and Subordination.
Upon payment by the Guarantor of any Guaranteed Obligations, all rights of the Guarantor against the Borrower arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or otherwise (whether at law or in equity) shall in all respects be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the prior payment in full of the Obligations until the Date of Full Satisfaction. If any amount shall erroneously be paid to the Borrower on account of (a) such subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or similar right or (b) any such indebtedness of the Borrower, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Agent and shall promptly be paid to the Agent to be credited against the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and the other [Loan] Documents. No failure on the part of the Borrower to make the payments required by this Section 3.01 (or any other payments required under applicable law or otherwise) shall in any respect limit the obligations and liabilities of the Guarantor with respect to its obligations under this Guarantee, and the Guarantor shall remain liable for the full amount of the obligations of the Guarantor hereunder.
ARTICLE IV
MISCELLANEOUS

All communications and notices hereunder shall (except as otherwise expressly permitted herein) be in writing and given as provided in Section 11.2 of the Agreement. All communications and notice hereunder to the Guarantor shall be given in care of the Borrower.
Section 4.02. Waivers; Amendment.
(a)    No failure by the Agent or any other Person to exercise, and no delay by any such Person in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder or under any other [Loan] Document shall operate as a waiver hereof or thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege. The rights, remedies, powers and privileges herein provided, and provided under each other [Loan] Document, are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, remedies, powers and privileges provided by law. No waiver of any provision of this Guarantee or consent to any departure by the Guarantor therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by Section 4.02(b), and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given.
(b)    Neither this Guarantee nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Agent and the Guarantor, subject to any consent required in accordance with Section 11.1 of the Agreement.
Section 4.03. Agent’s Fees and Expenses; Indemnification.
(a)    The Guarantor agrees to reimburse the Agent for its reasonable and documented out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred hereunder in accordance with Section 11.3 of the Agreement; provided that each reference therein to “the Borrower” shall be deemed to be a reference to “the Guarantor.”
(b)    The Guarantor shall indemnify the Indemnified Parties as set forth in Section 11.4 of the Agreement.
Section 4.04. Successors and Assigns.
Whenever in this Guarantee any of the parties hereto is referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include the successors and permitted assigns of such party; and all covenants, promises and agreements by or on behalf of the Guarantor, the Agent or any other Person that are contained in this Guarantee shall bind and inure to the benefit of their respective successors and permitted assigns. Except as provided in Section 11.10 of the Agreement, no party hereto may assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder.
Section 4.05. Representations and Warranties.
All representations and warranties made hereunder shall survive the execution and delivery hereof. Such representations and warranties have been or will be relied upon by the Agent, regardless of any investigation made by the Agent or on its behalf, and shall continue in full force and effect until this Guarantee is terminated as provided in Section 4.10 hereof, or with respect to the Guarantor, until the Guarantor is otherwise released from its obligations under this Guarantee in accordance with the terms hereof.
Section 4.06. Counterparts; Effectiveness; Several Agreement.
This Guarantee may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken



together shall constitute a single contract. This Guarantee shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Guarantor and the Agent and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Guarantor, the Agent and their respective successors and permitted assigns, subject to Section 4.04. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Guarantee by email or other electronic (including in “.pdf” or “.tif” format) means shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Guarantee. The words “execute,” “execution,” “signed,” “signature,” and words of like import in or related to any document to be signed in connection with this Guarantee and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include electronic signatures, the electronic matching of assignment terms and contract formations on electronic platforms approved by the Agent, 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 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; provided that notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary the Agent is under no obligation to agree to accept electronic signatures in any form or in any format unless expressly agreed to by the Agent pursuant to procedures approved by it.
Section 4.07. Severability.
If any provision of this Guarantee is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, (a) the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Guarantee shall not be affected or impaired thereby and (b) the parties shall endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions. The invalidity of a provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
Section 4.08. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.
(a)    Governing Law. This Guarantee shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of New York without regard to conflicts of laws principles thereof that would result in the application of the law of any other jurisdiction.
(b)    Jurisdiction. Each of the Guarantor and the Agent hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any federal or state court located in the borough of Manhattan in the City of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Guarantee, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of such 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 such 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.
(c)    Venue. Each of the Guarantor and the Agent 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 Guarantee in any court referred to in Section 4.08(b). 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)    Service of Process. Each of the Guarantor and the Agent irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 11.14.4 of the Agreement to the extent permitted by applicable law. Nothing in this Guarantee or any other [Loan] Document will affect the right of any party to this Guarantee to serve process in any other manner permitted by law. As an alternative method of service, the Guarantor also irrevocably appoints the Borrower (the “Process Agent”) with an office on the date hereof at 1050 Caribbean Way, Miami, Florida 33132, United States of America, as its agent to receive on behalf of the Guarantor and its property service of copies of any process, summons, notice or document in any such action or proceeding. Such service may be made by mailing or delivering a copy of such process to the Guarantor in care of the Process Agent, and the Guarantor hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the Process Agent to accept such service on its behalf. Nothing herein will affect the right of Agent to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or affect Agent’s right to bring any action or proceeding against the Guarantor or its property in the courts of other jurisdictions.
(e)    WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH OF THE GUARANTOR AND THE AGENT 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 GUARANTEE OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH OF THE GUARANTOR AND THE AGENT (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 GUARANTEE BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 4.08(E).
Section 4.09. Obligations Absolute.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, all rights of the Agent hereunder and all obligations of the Guarantor hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional irrespective of (a) any lack of validity or enforceability of the Agreement, any other [Loan] Document, any agreement with respect to any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other agreement or instrument relating to any of the foregoing, (b) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other




term of, all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to any departure from the Agreement, any other [Loan] Document or any other agreement or instrument, (c) any release or amendment or waiver of or consent under or departure from any guarantee guaranteeing all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or (d) subject only to termination or release of the Guarantor’s obligations hereunder in accordance with the terms of Section 4.10, but without prejudice to reinstatement rights under Section 2.04, any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Guarantor in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations or this Guarantee.
Section 4.10. Termination or Release.
(a)    This Guarantee and the guarantees made herein shall remain in full force and effect until the earlier of (i) the Date of Full Satisfaction and (ii) the occurrence of a Third Priority Release Event, at which time they shall automatically terminate with respect to all Guaranteed Obligations.
(b)    In connection with any termination or release pursuant to clause (a) above, the Agent shall promptly execute and deliver to the Guarantor, at the Guarantor’s expense, all documents or other instruments that the Guarantor shall reasonably request to evidence such termination or release and shall perform such other actions reasonably requested by the Guarantor to effect such release, including return of certificates, securities and instruments. Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section 4.10 shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Agent.
Section 4.11. Recourse; Limited Obligations.
This Guarantee is made with full recourse to the Guarantor and pursuant to and upon all the warranties, representations, covenants and agreements on the part of the Guarantor contained herein, in the Agreement and the other [Loan] Documents and otherwise in writing in connection herewith or therewith. It is the desire and intent of the Guarantor and the Agent that this Guarantee shall be enforced against the Guarantor to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.
Section 4.12. Judgment. If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum payable hereunder (the “Guaranty Currency”) into another currency (the “Other Currency”), the Guarantor agrees that the rate of exchange used will be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, the Agent could purchase the Guaranty Currency with the Other Currency on the business day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of the Guarantor in respect of any sum due hereunder will, notwithstanding any judgment in the Other Currency, be discharged only to the extent that, on the date the Guarantor makes payment to the Agent of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Other Currency, the Agent may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase the Guaranty Currency with the Other Currency; if the amount of the Guaranty Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Agent in the Guaranty Currency, the Guarantor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Agent against such loss, and if the




amount of the Guaranty Currency so purchased exceeds the amount originally due to the Agent in the Guaranty Currency, the Agent agrees to remit to the Guarantor such excess.

Exhibit F
Form of Senior Parties Subordination Agreement




SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT
SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT, dated as of [•], 2020 (this “Agreement”), by and among each Agent (as defined below), in its capacity as facility agent under the applicable ECA Agreement (as defined below), RCI HOLDINGS LLC, a limited liability company formed and existing under the laws of Liberia (the “Guarantor”), ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISES LTD., a corporation incorporated and existing under the laws of Liberia (the “Company”), THE BANK OF NEW YORK MELLON TRUST COMPANY, N.A., in its capacity as trustee under the Indenture (as defined below) (the “Trustee”), for the benefit of the Holders (as defined in the Indenture) and, on and after the Joinder Date (as defined below), MORGAN STANLEY SENIOR FUNDING INC. (“MSSF”), in its capacity as administrative agent under the Credit Agreement (as defined below) (the “Administrative Agent”), for the benefit of the Lenders (as defined below).
Pursuant to that certain Indenture, dated as of June 9, 2020 (as amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Indenture”), by and among the Company, as issuer, the Guarantor and the Trustee, the Company has issued $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 9.125% Senior Notes due 2023 (collectively, the “Notes”).
Pursuant to that certain Commitment Letter, dated as of August 12, 2020, between the Company, and MSSF (the “Commitment Letter”), which attaches a form of 364-Day Term Loan Agreement (the “Draft Credit Agreement”), the Company may obtain Advances in a maximum aggregate principal amount not to exceed $1,000,000,000 pursuant to a definitive 364-Day Term Loan Agreement, which will be substantially consistent with the Draft Credit Agreement, with such changes as are agreed between the Company and MSSF (such definitive agreement, as amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”).
Pursuant to each agreement listed in Schedule I hereto (collectively, the “ECA Agreements”, and each, an “ECA Agreement”), the Guarantor is required to execute and deliver to each facility agent listed (as listed in Schedule I hereto, the “Agents”, and each an “Agent”) for the benefit of the lenders under reach of the ECA Agreements to which that Agent is a party (the agent and the lenders under the ECA Agreements being the “ECA Parties”) a guarantee of the obligations of the Company under each such ECA Agreement, each of which guarantees are dated as of [•], 2020, but each such guarantee must be subordinated to the Senior Obligations (as defined below) (collectively, the “Subordinated Guarantees”, and each, a “Subordinated Guarantee”).
The Guarantor’s execution and delivery of each Subordinated Guarantee in favor of an Agent, for the benefit of the applicable ECA Parties, is conditioned upon the execution and delivery by the Company, the Guarantor and that Agent, for the benefit of the applicable ECA Parties, of this Agreement pursuant to which each of the Agents and the ECA Parties (each such Agent and all such ECA Parties, together with each of their respective successors and assigns, collectively, the “Subordinated Parties”) agree, and with respect to each ECA Agreement on a several basis, to subordinate their respective rights with respect to the Subordinated Obligations (as defined below) to the rights of the Trustee, the Holders and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent and the lenders from time to time party to the Credit Agreement (the “Lenders”) with respect to the Senior Obligations, all on the terms set forth herein. For purposes




hereof, “Senior Parties” means (a) prior to the Joinder Date, the Trustee and the Holders, and (b) on and after the Joinder Date, the Trustee, the Holders, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders.
Accordingly, each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties (as defined below)), the Company, the Guarantor, the Trustee, on behalf of the Holders (and each of their respective successors or assigns), and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders (and each of their respective successors or assigns), hereby agrees as follows:
SECTION 1. Subordination.
(a)    Each Agent (on behalf of itself and its other Relevant Subordinated Parties) hereby agrees, on a several basis, that all of their respective right, title and interest in and to the Subordinated Obligations shall be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the rights of the Senior Parties in respect of the obligations of the Guarantor (whether now existing or from time to time after the date hereof incurred, assumed, created or arising) arising under the Senior Debt Documents (as defined below), including the payment of principal, premium (if any), interest (including, without limitation, interest accruing on or after the filing of any Insolvency Proceeding (as defined below) relating to the Company or the Guarantor pursuant to the terms of the Senior Debt Documents, whether or not a claim for post-filing interest is allowed or allowable in any such Insolvency Proceeding), fees, charges, expenses, indemnities, reimbursement obligations and all other amounts payable thereunder or in respect thereof, in each case whether or not any of the foregoing is allowed or allowable as a claim in any Insolvency Proceeding (collectively, the “Senior Obligations”). For the avoidance of doubt, (1) “payment in full” (or similar term used herein) of the Senior Obligations will not be deemed to have occurred so long as any Obligations under and as defined in the Senior Debt Documents remain outstanding (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted) and (2) nothing herein shall or shall be deemed to affect, alter or impair the rights of the Subordinated Parties under the relevant ECA Agreement and the Loan Documents (as defined in the relevant ECA Agreement) other than with respect to the Subordinated Guarantees entered into in connection with that ECA Agreement.
For purposes hereof:
(i)    “Relevant Subordinated Parties” means, in respect of an Agent, the Subordinated Parties under or in connection with the ECA Agreement pursuant to which that Agent has been appointed in such capacity.
(ii)    “Senior Debt Documents” means the Indenture, the Notes, the Note Guarantee (as defined in the Indenture), the Credit Agreement and any related promissory notes and that certain Limited Guaranty, to be dated the date of the Credit Agreement, made by the Guarantor in favor of the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders.
(iii)    “Subordinated Obligations” means, in respect of an ECA Agreement and the Relevant Subordinated Parties thereunder, all obligations of the Guarantor to those Relevant Subordinated Parties (whether now existing or from time to time after the date hereof incurred, assumed, created or arising) under each Subordinated Guarantee in respect of that ECA Agreement.




(b)    Except to the extent expressly permitted hereunder, the Company, the Guarantor
and each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant the applicable Subordinated Parties) agrees that no payment (whether directly, by purchase, redemption or exercise of any right of setoff or otherwise) in respect of the Subordinated Obligations, whether as principal, interest or otherwise, and whether in cash, securities or other property, shall be made by or on behalf of the Guarantor under the applicable Subordinated Guarantee to which that Agent is a party or received or accepted, directly or indirectly, by or on behalf of any Subordinated Party under that Subordinated Guarantee, until the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted). In the event that any payment by, or on behalf of, or distribution of the assets or other property of, or any equity securities or debt securities issued by, the Guarantor of any kind or character, whether in cash, securities or other property, and whether directly, by purchase, redemption, exercise of any right of setoff or otherwise, including without limitation, in connection with a plan of reorganization or other Insolvency Proceeding with respect to the Guarantor, shall be received on account of any Subordinated Obligations by or on behalf of any Subordinated Party or any Affiliate thereof at a time when such payment or distribution is prohibited by this Agreement, until the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), then such payment or distribution that has been received by a Subordinated Party shall be held by that Subordinated Party or Affiliate in trust (segregated from other property of such Subordinated Party or Affiliate) for the benefit of, and shall forthwith be paid over to, the Trustee, for the benefit of itself and the Holders, and, on and after the Joinder Date, to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of itself and the Lenders, in each case, according to the pro rata share of the Senior Obligations held by the Trustee and the Holders, on the one hand, and the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, on the other hand. If the Trustee or the Administrative Agent receives more than the pro rata share to which it is entitled pursuant to the foregoing sentence, then the Trustee or the Administrative Agent shall pay the excess over to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of itself and the Lenders, or to the Trustee, for the benefit of itself and the Holders, as the case may be; provided that such payment shall not be payable until the Trustee or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, has been able to determine the outstanding amount of the respective pro rata share of the Trustee or the Administrative agent, as applicable (such determination to be made in reliance on either the information provided by the Company pursuant to the penultimate sentence of this clause 1(b) or such other evidence as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems satisfactory). For the avoidance of doubt, the subordination of the Subordinated Obligations to the Senior Obligations pursuant to the provisions of this Section 1 does not, and nothing contained in this Section 1 or elsewhere in this Subordination Agreement shall, limit or be deemed to limit the liability of the Company to make payments of principal, premium (if any), interest, fees, charges, expenses, indemnities, reimbursement obligations and other amounts payable in respect of any ECA Agreement as and when due. For purposes hereof, the “pro rata share” of any Person as of any time shall be determined based upon the share of the sum of the total Senior Obligations held by such Person at such time. The Company agrees to advise the Trustee, the Administrative Agent or any Subordinated Party, as the case may be, promptly upon request as to the outstanding amount of all Senior Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations held by the Holders and the Lenders, in order to facilitate the Trustee, the Administrative Agent, or the relevant Subordinated Party receiving the pro rata payment to which it is entitled or making the payment required to be paid in accordance with the foregoing (as applicable). Each Subordinated Party may




conclusively rely on the aforementioned advice from the Company in complying with its obligations under this clause 1(b).
(c)    The provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding the occurrence of an Insolvency Proceeding against the Guarantor or any of its properties or assets until the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted). Upon any distribution of the assets of the Guarantor or upon any dissolution, winding up, liquidation or reorganization of the Guarantor, whether in bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement or receivership proceedings or otherwise, or upon any assignment for the benefit of creditors or any other marshalling of the assets and liabilities of the Guarantor, or otherwise (any of the foregoing, an “Insolvency Proceeding”):
(i)    the Senior Parties shall first be entitled to receive payment in full in cash of the Senior Obligations (whenever arising, and including, without limitation, interest accruing after the commencement of any Insolvency Proceeding at the rate set forth in the applicable Senior Debt Documents, whether or not allowed or allowable as a claim in any such Insolvency Proceeding) (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted) before any Subordinated Party shall be entitled to receive any payment or distribution on account of the Subordinated Obligations, whether of principal, interest or otherwise; and
(ii)    until the payment in full of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), any payment by, or on behalf of, or distribution of the assets of, or any debt or equity securities issued by, the Guarantor of any kind or character, whether in cash, securities or other property, to which any Subordinated Party would be entitled except for the provisions of this Section 1 shall be paid or delivered by the Person making such payment or distribution (whether a trustee in bankruptcy, a receiver, custodian or liquidating trustee or otherwise) directly to the Trustee, for the benefit of itself and the Holders, and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of itself and the Lenders, according to the pro rata share of the Senior Obligations held by the Trustee and the Holders, on the one hand, and the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, on the other hand. If the Trustee or the Administrative Agent receives more than the pro rata share to which it is entitled pursuant to the foregoing sentence, then the Trustee or the Administrative Agent shall pay the excess over to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of itself and the Lenders, or to the Trustee, for the benefit of itself and the Holders, as the case may be; provided that such payment shall not be payable until the Trustee or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, has been able to determine the outstanding amount of all Senior Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations represented by the Trustee or the Administrative Agent, as applicable (such determination to be made in reliance on either the information provided by the Company pursuant to the last sentence of this clause 1(c)(ii) or such other evidence as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems satisfactory). The Company agrees to advise the Trustee, the Administrative Agent or any Person making a payment or distribution pursuant to this clause, as the case may be, reasonably promptly upon request as to the outstanding amount of all Senior Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations held by the Holders and the Lenders, in order to facilitate the Trustee




or the Administrative Agent receiving the pro rata payment to which it is entitled or making the payment required to be paid in accordance with the foregoing (as applicable).
In addition, each Agent (in respect of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding (i) each of the Trustee, on behalf of the Holders, and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, is irrevocably authorized and empowered (in its own name or in the name of the Relevant Subordinated Parties or otherwise), but shall have no obligation, to demand, sue for, collect and receive every payment or distribution referred to in the preceding sentence and give acquittance therefor and to file claims and proofs of claim and take such other action as the Trustee or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, may deem necessary or advisable for the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights or interest of the Trustee, the Holders, the Administrative Agent or the Lenders and (ii) to the extent that a claim has been, or is, made under a Subordinated Guarantee, each of the Relevant Subordinated Parties in respect of that Subordinated Guarantee shall duly and promptly take such action as the Trustee, on behalf of the Holders, or, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, may reasonably request to (A) collect amounts in respect of the applicable Subordinated Obligations for the account of the Senior Parties and to file appropriate claims or proofs of claim in respect of such Subordinated Obligations, (B) execute and deliver to the Trustee or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, such documents as the Trustee, on behalf of the Holders, or the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, may reasonably request in order to enable the Trustee or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, to enforce any and all claims with respect to the applicable Subordinated Obligations for the account of the Senior Parties and (C) collect and receive any and all payments or distributions which may be payable or deliverable upon or with respect to the applicable Subordinated Obligations for the account of the Senior Parties (provided that the Company hereby agrees that it shall pay on demand all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses of each Relevant Subordinated Party in connection with any of the foregoing actions (including the reasonable and documented fees and expenses of counsel for each such Subordinated Party)). A copy of this Agreement may be filed with any court as evidence of the Senior Parties’ right, power and authority hereunder.
(d)    The Guarantor and each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties)
agree that, prior to the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), no Relevant Subordinated Party may take any Enforcement Action against the Guarantor (it being understood that this Agreement shall not affect any Subordinated Party’s rights or remedies against any other obligor under or with respect to the applicable ECA Agreement and/or the other Loan Documents (as defined therein)) without the prior written consent of the Trustee (acting upon the direction of the Required Holders) and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent (acting upon the direction of the Required Lenders (as defined in the Credit Agreement)), unless any of the following apply in which case each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) shall be permitted to take any such Enforcement Action without any requirement to obtain consent from the Trustee or the Administrative Agent:
(i)    the occurrence of, with respect to the Guarantor, an Insolvency Proceeding; or
(ii)    the holders of Senior Obligations have taken any Enforcement Action in relation to the Guarantor; or




(iii) a default has occurred under the applicable ECA Agreement (a “Subordinated Debt Default”); and
(A)    the Relevant Subordinated Parties have provided notice of the Subordinated Debt Default to the Senior Parties in accordance with Section 10 hereof; and
(B)    a period of not less than (i) 90 days (in the case of a payment default) or (ii) 179 days (in the case of a non-payment default) has passed from the date the Senior Parties were first notified of the Subordinated Debt Default (a “Standstill Period”); and
(C)    at the end of the Standstill Period, the Subordinated Debt Default is continuing and has not been waived.
For the purposes hereof, “Enforcement Action” means, any action taken by any Subordinated Party in relation to or with respect to the Guarantor under or in connection with the relevant Subordinated Guarantee granted in favor of that Subordinated Party (whether taken by the relevant creditor or creditors or an agent or trustee on its or their behalf) to: (i) demand payment under that Subordinated Guarantee of all or any part of the applicable Subordinated Obligations, (ii) recover all or any part of the applicable Subordinated Obligations (including, by exercising any rights of set-off or combination of accounts), (iii) exercise or enforce any rights under or pursuant to that Subordinated Guarantee, (iv) commence legal proceedings against the Guarantor or (v) commence, or take any other steps which could lead to the commencement of, an Insolvency Proceeding concerning Guarantor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that no Relevant Subordinated Party may in any Insolvency Proceeding concerning Guarantor: (i) oppose any sale of assets (including bidding procedures relating thereto) with respect to the Guarantor, (ii) propose any debtor in possession financing or oppose any debtor in possession financing or use of cash collateral with respect to the Guarantor, in each case without the consent of the Trustee, acting on behalf of itself and the Holders, and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, acting on behalf of itself and the Lenders, (iii) seek appointment of a trustee or examiner with respect to the Guarantor or (iv) propose, sponsor, vote in favor of, or otherwise support any plan of reorganization or liquidation with respect to the Guarantor unless such plan (a) provides for the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations on or before the effective date of such plan or (b) each of the Trustee, on behalf of the Holders, and, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, has provided its prior written consent with respect to such plan.
(e)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives all rights of
subrogation it may have with respect to the Senior Parties on account of payments made to the Senior Parties by virtue of this Agreement that would otherwise have been made to the applicable Subordinated Obligations until all amounts owing on the Senior Obligations shall be paid in full in cash (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted). For the avoidance of doubt, upon the payment in cash of the Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), the Relevant Subordinated Parties shall be subrogated to the rights of the Senior Parties with respect to such payments. As between and among the Guarantor, its creditors (other than the Senior Parties) and the Subordinated Parties, no such




payment or distribution made to the Senior Parties by virtue of this Agreement that otherwise would have been made to the Relevant Subordinated Parties shall be deemed to be a payment by the Guarantor on account of the applicable Subordinated Obligations, it being understood that the provisions of this paragraph (e) are intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights of the Relevant Subordinated Parties and the Senior Parties.
(f)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) and the Guarantor agree that any and all instruments or records (other than book entry records or other internal records) now or hereafter directly creating or evidencing the Subordinated Obligations, whether upon refunding, extension, renewal, refinancing, replacement or otherwise, shall contain the following legend:
“Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the obligations of the Guarantor (as defined herein) under this Guarantee shall not become due or be paid or payable by the Guarantor pursuant hereto, except to the extent permitted under the Subordination Agreement, dated as of [•], 2020, among KfW IPEX-Bank GmbH, RCI Holdings LLC, The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., in its capacity as Trustee, and, on and after the Joinder Date (as defined therein), Morgan Stanley Senior Funding Inc., in its capacity as Administrative Agent, which Subordination Agreement is incorporated herein with the same effect as if fully set
forth herein.    For the avoidance of doubt, restrictions imposed by the aforementioned Subordination Agreement on the rights of the beneficiary hereof to enforce the obligations of the Guarantor under this Guarantee shall not affect the rights of the beneficiary to enforce the obligations of the Guarantor under this Guarantee on and following such time as the aforementioned Subordination Agreement permits and those rights shall be fully preserved”;
or shall otherwise refer to and be subject in all respects to the terms of this Agreement.
(g)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, if for any reason (including, without limitation, in connection with any Insolvency Proceedings against any Guarantor or any of its properties or assets (or any similar proceedings against any other person)), any payment received by any Senior Party in respect of the Senior Obligations is rescinded or avoided or must otherwise be restored or returned by such Senior Party, that payment (including, without limitation, if that payment had constituted payment in full (or similar term used herein) for the purposes hereof) will not be considered to have been made for the purposes of this Agreement, and this Agreement will continue to be effective or will be reinstated (if necessary), as if that payment had not been made.
SECTION 2. Waivers and Consents. (a) Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives the right to compel that any assets or property of the Guarantor be applied in any particular order to discharge the Senior Obligations. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) expressly waives the right to require the Senior Parties to proceed against the Guarantor, or to pursue any other remedy in any Senior Party’s power which such Relevant Subordinated Parties cannot pursue and which would lighten the burden of those Relevant Subordinated Parties, notwithstanding that the failure of any Senior Party to do so may thereby prejudice each such Relevant Subordinated Party. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant




Subordinated Parties) agrees that it shall not be discharged, exonerated or have its obligations hereunder to the Senior Parties reduced by any Senior Party’s delay in proceeding against or enforcing any remedy against the Guarantor, by any Senior Party releasing the Guarantor from any part (but not all) of the Senior Obligations, or by the discharge of the Guarantor by operation of law or otherwise, with or without the intervention or omission of a Senior Party. A Senior Party’s vote to accept or reject any plan of reorganization relating to the Guarantor, or a Senior Party’s receipt on account of the Senior Obligations other than the payment in full in cash thereof (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted) of any cash, securities or other property distributed in any bankruptcy, reorganization, or insolvency case, shall not discharge, exonerate, or reduce the obligations of any Subordinated Party hereunder to the Senior Parties.
(b)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives all rights and defenses arising out of an election of remedies by the Senior Parties, even though that election of remedies, including any nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to security for the Senior Obligations, has impaired the value of each such Relevant Subordinated Party’s rights of subrogation, reimbursement or contribution against the Guarantor. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) expressly waives any rights or defenses it may have by reason of protection afforded to the Guarantor with respect to the Senior Obligations pursuant to any anti-deficiency laws or other laws of similar import which limit or discharge the principal debtor’s indebtedness upon judicial or nonjudicial foreclosure of real property or personal property securing the Senior Obligations.
(c)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that, without the necessity of any reservation of rights against it, and without notice to or further assent by it, any demand for payment of any Senior Obligations made by a Senior Party may be rescinded in whole or in part by such Senior Party, and any Senior Obligation may be continued, and the Senior Obligations, or the liability of the Guarantor or any other guarantor or any other party upon or for any part thereof or right of offset with respect thereto, may, from time to time, in whole or in part, be renewed, extended, modified, accelerated, compromised, waived, surrendered, or released by the Senior Parties, in each case without notice to or further assent by any Relevant Subordinated Party (to the extent contemplated by the Subordinated Guarantee to which that Agent is a party), which will remain bound under this Agreement and without impairing, abridging, releasing or affecting the subordination and other agreements provided for herein.
(d)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives any and all notice of the creation, renewal, extension or accrual of any of the Senior Obligations and notice of or proof of reliance by the Senior Parties upon this Agreement. The Senior Obligations, and any of them, shall be deemed conclusively to have been created, contracted or incurred and the consent given to create the obligations of the Guarantor in respect of the Subordinated Obligations in reliance upon this Agreement, and all dealings between the Guarantor and the Senior Parties shall be deemed to have been consummated in reliance upon this Agreement. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) acknowledges and agrees that the Senior Parties have relied upon the subordination and other agreements provided for herein in consenting to the applicable Subordinated Obligations. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives notice of or proof of reliance on this Agreement and protest, demand for payment and notice of default.




SECTION 3.    Senior Obligations Unconditional. All rights and interests of the Senior
Parties hereunder, and all agreements and obligations of each Subordinated Party and the Guarantor hereunder, shall remain in full force and effect irrespective of:
(a)    any lack of validity or enforceability of the Senior Debt Documents;
(b)    any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Senior Obligations, or any amendment or waiver or other modification, whether by course of conduct or otherwise, of, or consent to departure from, the Senior Debt Documents; or
(c)    any other circumstances that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Guarantor in respect of the Senior Obligations, or of any Subordinated Party or the Guarantor in respect of this Agreement.
SECTION 4. Representations and Warranties. Each Agent represents and warrants on a several basis to the Administrative Agent and the Trustee for the benefit of the applicable Senior Parties that:
(a)    It has the power and authority to execute and deliver and to perform its obligations under this Agreement and has taken all necessary action to authorize its execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement.
(b)    This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by such Agent and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Agent, enforceable against such Agent and its Relevant Subordinated Parties in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.
(c)    No consent or authorization of filing with, or other act by or in respect of, any Governmental Authority, is required to be obtained or made by it in connection with the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement.
SECTION 5. Waiver of Claims. (a) To the maximum extent permitted by law, each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives any claim it might have against the Senior Parties with respect to, or arising out of, any action or failure to act or any error of judgment, negligence, or mistake or oversight whatsoever on the part of the Senior Parties or their directors, officers, employees, agents or Affiliates with respect to any exercise of rights or remedies under the Senior Debt Documents. Neither the Senior Parties nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees, agents or Affiliates shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon the Senior Debt Documents or for any delay in doing so.
(b)    Each Agent (on behalf of the applicable Subordinated Parties), for itself and on
behalf of its successors and assigns, hereby waives any and all now existing or hereafter arising rights it may have to require the Senior Parties to marshal assets for the benefit of each such Relevant Subordinated Party, or to otherwise direct the timing, order or manner of any sale, collection or other enforcement of the Senior Obligations. The Senior Parties are under no duty or obligation, and each Agent (on behalf of the Relevant Subordinated Parties) hereby waives any




right it may have to compel the Senior Parties, to pursue the Company or other Person who may be liable for the Obligations (as defined in the Indenture) or the Obligations (as defined in the Credit Agreement).
SECTION 6. Further Assurances. Each Agent and the Guarantor shall, at the expense of the Company and at any time from time to time, upon the written request of the Trustee or, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, promptly and duly execute and deliver such further instruments and documents and take such further actions as the Trustee or, on and after the Joinder Date, the Administrative Agent, as applicable, reasonably may request for the purposes of obtaining or preserving the full benefits of this Agreement and of the rights and powers herein granted. Upon the written request of any other party hereto, the Company shall reasonably cooperate and provide such information as may be reasonably necessary to give full effect the provisions set forth in Section 1 of this Agreement.
SECTION 7. [Reserved].
SECTION 8. Provisions Define Relative Rights. This Agreement is intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights of the Senior Parties on the one hand and the Subordinated Parties and the Guarantor on the other, and neither the Company nor any other Person shall have any right, benefit or other interest under this Agreement.
SECTION 9. Powers Coupled with an Interest. All powers, authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until the Senior Obligations are paid in full in cash.
SECTION 10. Notices. Any notice or communication shall be in writing and delivered in person or mailed by first class mail addressed as follows:

Form of Other Senior Parties Subordination Agreement





[FORM OF] SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT
SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT, dated as of [•], 2020 (this “Agreement”), by and among each Agent (as defined below), in its capacity as facility agent under the applicable ECA Agreement (as defined below), ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISES LTD., a corporation incorporated and existing under the laws of Liberia (the “Company”), the subsidiaries of the Company listed in Schedule I hereto (each, a “Guarantor”, and collectively, the “Guarantors”) and [ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT], in its capacity as [administrative agent] under the Credit Agreement (as defined below) (the “Administrative Agent”), for the benefit of the Lenders (as defined below).
The Company, the Administrative Agent and certain lenders from time to time thereunder (the “Lenders” and referred to herein, collectively with the Administrative Agent, as the “Senior Parties”) are party to that certain [CREDIT AGREEMENT], dated as of [•] (as amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”).
Pursuant to each agreement listed in Schedule III hereto (collectively, the “ECA Agreements”, and each an “ECA Agreement”), (a) RCL Cruise Holdings LLC, Torcatt Enterprises Limitada, RCL Holdings Cooperatief UA, RCL Cruises Ltd., and RCL Investments Ltd. are required to execute and deliver to each facility agent (as listed in Schedule III hereto, the “Agents”, and each an “Agent”) for the benefit of the lenders under each of the ECA Agreements to which that Agent is a party (the Agents and the lenders under the ECA Agreements being the “ECA Parties”) a guarantee of the obligations of the Company under each such ECA Agreement, each of which guarantees are dated as of [•], 2020, but each such guarantee must be subordinated to the Senior Obligations (as defined below) and (b) RCI Holdings LLC (“RCI”) is required to execute and deliver to each Agent for the benefit of the relevant ECA Parties a guarantee of the obligations of the Company under each relevant ECA Agreement, each of which guarantees are dated as of [•], 2020, but each such guarantee must be subordinated to the Senior Obligations (collectively, the “Subordinated Guarantees”, and each a “Subordinated Guarantee”).
The Guarantors’ execution and delivery of each Subordinated Guarantee in favor of an Agent, for the benefit of the applicable ECA Parties, is conditioned upon the execution and delivery by the Company, each Guarantor and that Agent, for the benefit of the applicable ECA Parties, of this Agreement pursuant to which each of the Agents and the ECA Parties (each such Agent and all such ECA Parties, together with each of their respective successors and assigns, collectively, the “Subordinated Parties”) agree, and with respect to each ECA Agreement on a several basis, to subordinate their respective rights with respect to the Subordinated Obligations (as defined below) to the rights of the Senior Parties with respect to the Senior Obligations, all on the terms set forth herein.
Accordingly, each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties (as defined below)), the Company, each Guarantor and the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Senior Parties (and each of their respective successors or assigns), hereby agrees as follows:




SECTION 1. Subordination.
(a)    Each Agent (on behalf of itself and its other Relevant Subordinated Parties)
hereby agrees, on a several basis, that all of their respective right, title and interest in and to the Subordinated Obligations shall be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the rights of the Senior Parties in respect of the obligations of each Guarantor (whether now existing or from time to time after the date hereof incurred, assumed, created or arising) arising under the Senior Debt Documents (as defined below), including the payment of principal, premium (if any), interest (including, without limitation, interest accruing on or after the filing of any Insolvency Proceeding (as defined below) relating to the Company or any Guarantor pursuant to the terms of the Senior Debt Documents, whether or not a claim for post-filing interest is allowed or allowable in any such Insolvency Proceeding), fees, charges, expenses, indemnities, reimbursement obligations and all other amounts payable thereunder or in respect thereof, in each case whether or not any of the foregoing is allowed or allowable as a claim in any Insolvency Proceeding (collectively, the “Senior Obligations”). For the avoidance of doubt, (1) “payment in full” (or similar term used herein) of the Senior Obligations will not be deemed to have occurred so long as any Obligations under and as defined in the Senior Debt Documents remain outstanding (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted) and (2) nothing herein shall or shall be deemed to affect, alter or impair the rights of the Subordinated Parties under the relevant ECA Agreement and the [Loan] Documents (as defined in the relevant ECA Agreement) other than with respect to the Subordinated Guarantees entered into in connection with that ECA Agreement.
For purposes hereof:
(i) “Relevant Subordinated Parties” means, in respect of an Agent, the Subordinated Parties under or in connection with the ECA Agreement pursuant to which that Agent has been appointed in such capacity.
(ii)“Senior Debt Documents” means the Credit Agreement, that certain Guaranty, dated as of [•], made by RCL Cruise Holdings LLC, Torcatt Enterprises Limitada, RCL Holdings Cooperatief UA, RCL Cruises Ltd., and RCL Investments Ltd. in favor of the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders, and that certain Guaranty, dated as of [•], made by RCI in favor of the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders, and any related promissory notes.
(iii) “Subordinated Obligations” means, in respect of an ECA Agreement and the Relevant Subordinated Parties thereunder, all obligations of the Guarantors to those Relevant Subordinated Parties (whether now existing or from time to time after the date hereof incurred, assumed, created or arising) under each Subordinated Guarantee in respect of that ECA Agreement.
(b)    Except to the extent expressly permitted hereunder, the Company, each
Guarantor and each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that no payment (whether directly, by purchase, redemption or exercise of any right of setoff or otherwise) in respect of the Subordinated Obligations, whether as principal, interest or otherwise, and whether in cash, securities or other property, shall be made by or on behalf of any Guarantor under the applicable Subordinated Guarantee or received or accepted, directly or indirectly, by or on behalf of any Subordinated Party under that Subordinated Guarantee, until the payment in full in cash of ll Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted). In the event that any payment by, or on behalf of, or distribution of the assets or other property of, or any equity securities or debt securities issued



by, any Guarantor of any kind or character, whether in cash, securities or other property, and whether directly, by purchase, redemption, exercise of any right of setoff or otherwise, including without limitation, in connection with a plan of reorganization or other Insolvency Proceeding with respect to any Guarantor, shall be received on account of any Subordinated Obligations by or on behalf of any Subordinated Party or any Affiliate thereof at a time when such payment or distribution is prohibited by this Agreement, then such payment or distribution that has been received by a Subordinated Party shall be held by that Subordinated Party or Affiliate in trust (segregated from other property of such Subordinated Party or Affiliate) for the benefit of, and shall forthwith be paid over to the Administrative Agent as representative for the Senior Obligations and each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations, according to the pro rata share of the Senior Obligations represented by the Administrative Agent and the Pari Passu Obligations held by such agent, trustee or other representative and the other obligees under the applicable agreement until the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted); provided, if the applicable Guarantor is RCI and RCI continues to guarantee any obligations outstanding under any of the Unsecured Note Indebtedness, the DDTL Indebtedness or any Permitted Refinancing (as each such term is defined in the ECA Agreement as in effect on the date hereof) in respect thereof (collectively, the “Senior RCI Obligations”), then such payment or distribution shall be held by such Subordinated Party or Affiliate in trust (segregated from other property of such Subordinated Party or Affiliate) for the benefit of, and shall forthwith be paid over to, the relevant agent, trustee or other representative for the Senior RCI Obligations to the extent required under any other subordination agreement to which RCI is a party at such time. If the Administrative Agent receives more than the pro rata share to which it is entitled pursuant to the foregoing sentence, then the Administrative Agent shall pay the excess over to the applicable agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations; provided that such payment shall not be payable until the Administrative Agent has been able to determine the outstanding amount of all Pari Passu Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations represented by the Administrative Agent and Pari Passu Obligations held by each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations (such determination to be made in reliance on either the information provided by the Company pursuant to the penultimate sentence of this clause 1(b) or such other evidence as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems satisfactory). For the avoidance of doubt, the subordination of the Subordinated Obligations to the Senior Obligations pursuant to the provisions of this Section 1 does not, and nothing contained in this Section 1 or elsewhere in this Subordination Agreement shall, limit or be deemed to limit the liability of the Company to make payments of principal, premium (if any), interest, fees, charges, expenses, indemnities, reimbursement obligations and other amounts payable in respect of any ECA Agreement as and when due. The Company agrees to advise the Administrative Agent or any Subordinated Party, as the case may be, promptly upon request as to the outstanding amount of all Pari Passu Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations represented by the Administrative Agent and Pari Passu Obligations held (or represented) by each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations, in order to facilitate the Administrative Agent, each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations or the relevant Subordinated Party receiving the pro rata payment to which it is entitled or making the payment required to be paid in accordance with the foregoing (as applicable). Each Subordinated Party may



conclusively rely on the aforementioned advice from the Company in complying with its obligations under this clause 1(b).
For purposes hereof:
(i)    “Pari Passu Obligations” means the obligations of the Company
listed in Schedule II hereto (each such agreement, as it may be amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time) and under credit card processing arrangements or other similar payment processing arrangements.
(ii)    the “pro rata share” of any Person as of any time shall be determined based
upon the share of the sum of the total Pari Passu Obligations held by such Person at such time.
(c)    The provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect
notwithstanding the occurrence of an Insolvency Proceeding against any Guarantor or any of its properties or assets until the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted). Upon any distribution of the assets of any Guarantor or upon any dissolution, winding up, liquidation or reorganization of any Guarantor, whether in bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement or receivership proceedings or otherwise, or upon any assignment for the benefit of creditors or any other marshalling of the assets and liabilities of any Guarantor, or otherwise (any of the foregoing, an “Insolvency Proceeding”):
(i)    the Senior Parties shall first be entitled to receive payment in full in cash of the Senior Obligations (whenever arising, and including, without limitation, interest accruing after the commencement of any Insolvency Proceeding at the rate set forth in the applicable Senior Debt Documents whether or not allowed or allowable as a claim in any such Insolvency Proceeding) (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted) before any Subordinated Party shall be entitled to receive any payment or distribution on account of the Subordinated Obligations, whether of principal, interest or otherwise; and
(ii)    until the payment in full of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), any payment by, or on behalf of, or distribution of the assets of, or any debt or equity securities issued by, such Guarantor of any kind or character, whether in cash, securities or other property, to which any Subordinated Party would be entitled except for the provisions of this Section 1 shall be paid or delivered by the Person making such payment or distribution (whether a trustee in bankruptcy, a receiver, custodian or liquidating trustee or otherwise) directly to the Administrative Agent representing the Senior Obligations and each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations, according to the pro rata share of the Senior Obligations represented by the Administrative Agent and the Pari Passu Obligations held by such agent, trustee or other representative and the other obligees under the applicable agreement; provided, if the applicable Guarantor is RCI and RCI continues to guarantee any obligations outstanding under any of the Senior RCI Obligations, then such payment or distribution shall be paid or delivered by the Person making such payment or distribution (whether a trustee in bankruptcy, a receiver, custodian or liquidating trustee or otherwise) directly to, the



relevant agent, trustee or other representative for the Senior RCI Obligations to the extent required under any other subordination agreement to which RCI is a party at



such time. If the Administrative Agent receives more than the pro rata share to which it is entitled pursuant to the foregoing sentence, then the Administrative Agent shall pay the excess over to the applicable agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations; provided that such payment shall not be payable until the Administrative Agent has been able to determine the outstanding amount of all Pari Passu Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations represented by the Administrative Agent and Pari Passu Obligations held by each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations (such determination to be made in reliance on either the information provided by the Company pursuant to the last sentence of this clause 1(c)(ii) or such other evidence as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems satisfactory). The Company agrees to advise the Administrative Agent or any Person making a payment or distribution pursuant to this clause, as the case may be, reasonably promptly upon request as to the outstanding amount of all Pari Passu Obligations and the respective pro rata share of Senior Obligations represented by the Administrative Agent and Pari Passu Obligations held (or represented) by each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations, in order to facilitate the Administrative Agent, each agent, trustee or other representative for the Pari Passu Obligations receiving the pro rata payment to which it is entitled or making the payment required to be paid in accordance with the foregoing (as applicable).
In addition, each Agent (in respect of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding (i) the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Senior Parties, is irrevocably authorized and empowered (in its own name or in the name of the Relevant Subordinated Parties or otherwise), but shall have no obligation, to demand, sue for, collect and receive every payment or distribution referred to in the preceding sentence and give acquittance therefor and to file claims and proofs of claim and take such other action as the Administrative Agent may deem necessary or advisable for the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights or interest of the Senior Parties and (ii) to the extent that a claim has been, or is, made under a Subordinated Guarantee, each of the Relevant Subordinated Parties in respect of that Subordinated Guarantee shall duly and promptly take such action as the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Senior Parties, may reasonably request to (A) collect amounts in respect of the applicable Subordinated Obligations for the account of the Senior Parties and to file appropriate claims or proofs of claim in respect of such Subordinated Obligations, (B) execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent such documents as the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Senior Parties, may reasonably request in order to enable the Administrative Agent to enforce any and all claims with respect to the applicable Subordinated Obligations for the account of the Senior Parties and (C) collect and receive any and all payments or distributions which may be payable or deliverable upon or with respect to the applicable Subordinated Obligations for the account of the Senior Parties (provided that the Company hereby agrees that it shall pay on demand all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses of each Relevant Subordinated Party in connection with any of the foregoing actions (including the reasonable and documented fees and expenses of counsel for each such Subordinated Party)). A copy of this Agreement may be filed with any court as evidence of the Senior Parties’ right, power and authority hereunder.
(d)    Each Guarantor and each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties)
agrees that, prior to the payment in full in cash of all Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), no Relevant Subordinated Party



may take any Enforcement Action against any Guarantor (it being understood that this Agreement shall not affect any Subordinated Party’s rights or remedies against any other obligor under or with respect to the applicable ECA Agreement and/or the other [Loan] Documents (as defined therein) without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent (acting upon the direction of the Required Lenders (as defined in the Credit Agreement)), unless any of the following apply in which case each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) shall be permitted to take any such Enforcement Action without any requirement to obtain consent from the Administrative Agent:
(i)    the occurrence of, with respect to such Guarantor, an Insolvency Proceeding; or
(ii)    the holders of Senior Obligations have taken any Enforcement Action in relation to such Guarantor; or
(iii)    a default has occurred under the applicable ECA Agreement (a “Subordinated Debt Default”); and
(A)    the Relevant Subordinated Parties have provided notice of the Subordinated Debt Default to the Senior Parties in accordance with Section 10 hereof; and
(B)    a period of not less than (i) 90 days (in the case of a payment default) or (ii) 179 days (in the case of a non-payment default) has passed from the date the Senior Parties were first notified of the Subordinated Debt Default (a “Standstill Period”); and
(C)    at the end of the Standstill Period, the Subordinated Debt Default is continuing and has not been waived.
For the purposes hereof, “Enforcement Action” means, any action taken by any Subordinated Party in relation to or with respect to any Guarantor under or in connection with the relevant Subordinated Guarantee granted in favor of that Subordinated Party (whether taken by the relevant creditor or creditors or an agent or trustee on its or their behalf) to: (i) demand payment under that Subordinated Guarantee of all or any part of the applicable Subordinated Obligations, (ii) recover all or any part of the applicable Subordinated Obligations (including, by exercising any rights of set-off or combination of accounts), (iii) exercise or enforce any rights under or pursuant to that Subordinated Guarantee, (iv) commence legal proceedings against such Guarantor or (v) commence, or take any other steps which could lead to the commencement of, an Insolvency Proceeding concerning such Guarantor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that it will not and no Relevant Subordinated Party may in any Insolvency Proceeding concerning any Guarantor: (i) oppose any sale of assets (including bidding procedures relating thereto) with respect to such Guarantor, (ii) propose any debtor in possession financing or oppose any debtor in possession financing or use of cash collateral with respect to such Guarantor, in each case without the consent of the Administrative Agent, acting on behalf of the Senior Parties, (iii) seek appointment of a trustee or examiner with respect to such Guarantor or (iv) propose, sponsor, vote in favor of, or otherwise support any plan of reorganization or liquidation with respect to such Guarantor unless such plan (a) provides for the payment in full in cash of all



Senior Obligations on or before the effective date of such plan or (b) the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, has provided its prior written consent with respect to such plan.
(e)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives all rights of subrogation it may have with respect to the Senior Parties on account of payments made to the Senior Parties by virtue of this Agreement that would otherwise have been made to the applicable Subordinated Obligations until all amounts owing on the Senior Obligations shall be paid in full in cash (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted). For the avoidance of doubt, upon the payment in cash of the Senior Obligations (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted), the Relevant Subordinated Parties shall be subrogated to the rights of the Senior Parties with respect to such payments. As between and among any Guarantor, its creditors (other than the Senior Parties) and the Subordinated Parties, no such payment or distribution made to the Senior Parties by virtue of this Agreement that otherwise would have been made to the Relevant Subordinated Parties shall be deemed to be a payment by such Guarantor on account of the applicable Subordinated Obligations, it being understood that the provisions of this paragraph (e) are intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights of the Relevant Subordinated Parties and the Senior Parties.
(f)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) and each Guarantor agree that any and all instruments or records (other than book entry records or other internal records) now or hereafter directly creating or evidencing the Subordinated Obligations, whether upon refunding, extension, renewal, refinancing, replacement or otherwise, shall contain the following legend:
“Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the obligations of the Guarantors (as defined herein) under this Guarantee shall not become due or be paid or payable by any Guarantor pursuant hereto, except to the extent permitted under the Subordination Agreement, dated as of [•], 2020, among [AGENT], RCL Cruise Holdings LLC, Torcatt Enterprises Limitada, RCL Holdings Cooperatief UA, RCL Cruises Ltd., RCL Investments Ltd., RCI Holdings LLC, and [ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT], in its capacity as Administrative Agent, which Subordination Agreement is incorporated herein with the same effect as if fully set
forth herein.    For the avoidance of doubt, restrictions imposed by the aforementioned Subordination Agreement on the rights of the beneficiary hereof to enforce the obligations of the Guarantors under this Guarantee shall not affect the rights of the beneficiary to enforce the obligations of the Guarantors under this Guarantee on and following such time as the aforementioned Subordination Agreement permits and those rights shall be fully preserved”;
or shall otherwise refer to and be subject in all respects to the terms of this Agreement.
SECTION 2. Waivers and Consents. (a) Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives the right to compel that any assets or property of any Guarantor be applied in any particular order to discharge the Senior Obligations. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) expressly waives the right to require the Senior Parties to



proceed against any Guarantor, or to pursue any other remedy in any Senior Party’s power which such Relevant Subordinated Parties cannot pursue and which would lighten the burden of those




Relevant Subordinated Parties, notwithstanding that the failure of any Senior Party to do so may thereby prejudice each such Relevant Subordinated Party. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that it shall not be discharged, exonerated or have its obligations hereunder to the Senior Parties reduced by any Senior Party’s delay in proceeding against or enforcing any remedy against any Guarantor, by any Senior Party releasing any Guarantor from any part (but not all) of the Senior Obligations, or by the discharge of any Guarantor by operation of law or otherwise, with or without the intervention or omission of a Senior Party. A Senior Party’s vote to accept or reject any plan of reorganization relating to any Guarantor, or a Senior Party’s receipt on account of the Senior Obligations other than the payment in full in cash thereof (other than any inchoate obligations for which no claim has been asserted) of any cash, securities or other property distributed in any bankruptcy, reorganization, or insolvency case, shall not discharge, exonerate, or reduce the obligations of any Subordinated Party hereunder to the Senior Parties.
(b)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives all rights and defenses arising out of an election of remedies by the Senior Parties, even though that election of remedies, including any nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to security for the Senior Obligations, has impaired the value of each such Relevant Subordinated Party’s rights of subrogation, reimbursement or contribution against any Guarantor. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) expressly waives any rights or defenses it may have by reason of protection afforded to any Guarantor with respect to the Senior Obligations pursuant to any anti-deficiency laws or other laws of similar import which limit or discharge the principal debtor’s indebtedness upon judicial or nonjudicial foreclosure of real property or personal property securing the Senior Obligations.
(c)    Each Agent (on behalf of the Relevant Subordinated Parties) agrees that, without the necessity of any reservation of rights against it, and without notice to or further assent by it, any demand for payment of any Senior Obligations made by a Senior Party may be rescinded in whole or in part by such Senior Party, and any Senior Obligation may be continued, and the Senior Obligations, or the liability of any Guarantor or any other guarantor or any other party upon or for any part thereof or right of offset with respect thereto, may, from time to time, in whole or in part, be renewed, extended, modified, accelerated, compromised, waived, surrendered, or released by the Senior Parties, in each case without notice to or further assent by any Relevant Subordinated Party (to the extent contemplated by the Subordinated Guarantee to which that Agent is a party), which will remain bound under this Agreement and without impairing, abridging, releasing or affecting the subordination and other agreements provided for herein.
(d)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives any and all notice of the creation, renewal, extension or accrual of any of the Senior Obligations and notice of or proof of reliance by the Senior Parties upon this Agreement. The Senior Obligations, and any of them, shall be deemed conclusively to have been created, contracted or incurred and the consent given to create the obligations of each Guarantor in respect of the Subordinated Obligations in reliance upon this Agreement, and all dealings between each Guarantor and the Senior Parties shall be deemed to have been consummated in reliance upon this Agreement. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) acknowledges and agrees that the Senior Parties have relied upon the subordination and other agreements provided for herein in consenting to the applicable Subordinated Obligations. Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives







notice of or proof of reliance on this Agreement and protest, demand for payment and notice of default.
SECTION 3.    Senior Obligations Unconditional. All rights and interests of the Senior
Parties hereunder, and all agreements and obligations of each Subordinated Party and each Guarantor hereunder, shall remain in full force and effect irrespective of:
(a)    any lack of validity or enforceability of the Senior Debt Documents;
(b)    any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Senior Obligations, or any amendment or waiver or other modification, whether by course of conduct or otherwise, of, or consent to departure from, the Senior Debt Documents; or
(c)    any other circumstances that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Guarantor in respect of the Senior Obligations, or of any Subordinated Party or any Guarantor in respect of this Agreement.
SECTION 4. Representations and Warranties. Each Agent represents and warrants on a several basis to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Senior Parties that:
(a)    It has the power and authority to execute and deliver and to perform its obligations under this Agreement and has taken all necessary action to authorize its execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement.
(b)    This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by such Agent and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Agent, enforceable against such Agent and its Relevant Subordinated Party in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.
(c)    No consent or authorization of filing with, or other act by or in respect of, any Governmental Authority, is required to be obtained or made by it in connection with the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement.
SECTION 5. Waiver of Claims. (a) To the maximum extent permitted by law, each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties) waives any claim it might have against the Senior Parties with respect to, or arising out of, any action or failure to act or any error of judgment, negligence, or mistake or oversight whatsoever on the part of the Senior Parties or their directors, officers, employees, agents or Affiliates with respect to any exercise of rights or remedies under the Senior Debt Documents. Neither the Senior Parties nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees, agents or Affiliates shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon the Senior Debt Documents or for any delay in doing so.
(b)    Each Agent (on behalf of its Relevant Subordinated Parties), for itself and on behalf
of its successors and assigns, hereby waives any and all now existing or hereafter arising rights it may have to require the Senior Parties to marshal assets for the benefit of each such Relevant Subordinated Party, or to otherwise direct the timing, order or manner of any sale, collection or



other enforcement of the Senior Obligations. The Senior Parties are under no duty or obligation, and each Agent (on behalf of the Relevant Subordinated Parties) hereby waives any right it may have to compel the Senior Parties, to pursue the Company or other Person who may be liable for the Obligations (as defined in the Credit Agreement).
SECTION 6. Further Assurances. Each Agent and each Guarantor shall, at the expense of the Company and at any time from time to time, upon the written request of the Administrative Agent, promptly and duly execute and deliver such further instruments and documents and take such further actions as the Administrative Agent reasonably may request for the purposes of obtaining or preserving the full benefits of this Agreement and of the rights and powers herein granted. Upon the written request of any other party hereto, the Company shall reasonably cooperate and provide such information as may be reasonably necessary to give full effect the provisions set forth in Section 1 of this Agreement.
SECTION 7. [Reserved].
SECTION 8. Provisions Define Relative Rights. This Agreement is intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights of the Senior Parties on the one hand and the Subordinated Parties and each Guarantor on the other, and neither the Company nor any other Person shall have any right, benefit or other interest under this Agreement.
SECTION 9. Powers Coupled with an Interest. All powers, authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until the Senior Obligations are paid in full in cash.

SECTION 12. Severability.

SECTION 17. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.

EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO AGREES THAT A FINAL JUDGMENT IN ANY SUCH ACTION, LITIGATION 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.
(c)    EACH PARTY HERETO IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT IN ANY COURT REFERRED TO IN PARAGRAPH (b) OF THIS SECTION 17.

SECTION 18. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY 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 OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY).

SECTION 21. Several Nature of Agent’s Rights and Obligations. The obligations of each Agent under this Agreement are several and apply only in respect of itself and its Relevant Subordinated Parties.

Accordingly, no Agent or its Relevant Subordinated Parties shall be responsible for the obligations, actions or omissions of any other Agent or their respective Relevant Subordinated Parties.
The rights of each Agent (and its Relevant Subordinated Parties) under or in connection with this Agreement are separate and independent rights.
