Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information in Item 2.03 below is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Item 2.03        Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On June 7, 2018, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Alexion”) entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”), by and among Alexion, as Administrative Borrower, certain foreign subsidiaries party thereto as borrowers, the lenders and other financial institutions party thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent. The Credit Agreement amends and restates Alexion’s existing credit agreement dated as of June 22, 2015 (the “Existing Credit Agreement”).
The Credit Agreement provides for a $1.0 billion revolving credit facility, comprised of a $300 million domestic tranche and a $700 million global tranche, and a $2.6125 billion term loan facility. Alexion is the sole borrower of the domestic tranche of the revolving credit facility and the term facility. The global tranche of the revolving credit facility is available for borrowings by Alexion and the subsidiary borrowers. As of June 7, 2018, $250 million of borrowings and $1.84 million of letters of credit were outstanding under the revolving credit facility and the full amount of the term loan facility was outstanding.
The revolving credit facility and the term loan facility mature on June 7, 2023. Commencing on June 30, 2019, Alexion is required to make amortization payments of 5.00% of the aggregate principal amount of the term loan facility annually, payable in equal quarterly installments. The proceeds of the borrowing under the Credit Agreement were used to refinance amounts outstanding under the Existing Credit Agreement.
Loans under the Credit Agreement bear interest, at Alexion’s option, at either a base rate or a Eurodollar rate, in each case plus an applicable margin. Under the Credit Agreement, the applicable margins on base rate loans range from 0.25% to 1.00% and the applicable margins on Eurodollar loans range from 1.25% to 2.00%, in each case based on Alexion’s consolidated net leverage ratio. As of the closing date of the Credit Agreement, the applicable margin on base rate loans was 0.50% and on Eurodollar loans was 1.50%.
The loans under the Credit Agreement are guaranteed by certain of Alexion’s foreign and domestic subsidiaries and secured by liens on certain of Alexion subsidiaries’ equity interests, subject to certain exceptions.
Under the terms of the Credit Agreement, Alexion must maintain a ratio of total net debt to EBITDA, as defined in the Credit Agreement, (the “consolidated net leverage ratio”) of 3.50 to 1.00, subject to certain increases following designated material acquisitions. In addition, Alexion must maintain a ratio of EBITDA to cash interest expense of at least 3.50 to 1.00.
The Credit Agreement contains certain representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants and events of default. The negative covenants in the credit agreement restrict Alexion’s and its subsidiaries’ ability, subject to certain significant baskets and exceptions, to incur liens or indebtedness, make investments, enter into mergers and other fundamental changes, make dispositions or pay dividends. The restriction on Alexion paying dividends includes an exception that permits Alexion to pay dividends and make other restricted payments regardless of dollar amount so long as, after giving pro forma effect thereto, Alexion would have a consolidated net leverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement, no greater than 3.25 to 1.00, subject to certain increases following designated material acquisitions. As of the most recently ended fiscal quarter, Alexion’s consolidated net leverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement, was below 3.25 to 1.00. So long as Alexion’s consolidated total net leverage ratio remains below 3.25 to 1.00, the credit agreement does not restrict the ability of the Company to pay dividends.




The above summary of certain terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement does not purport to be a complete discussion of that agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this report as Exhibit 10.1.
The Credit Agreement attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K and the above description have been included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding the terms of such document. They are not intended to provide any other factual information about Alexion or its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, businesses or equity holders. The representations, warranties, covenants and events of default contained in the Credit Agreement were made only for purposes of the Credit Agreement and as of specific dates; were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Credit Agreement; and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made by each contracting party to the other for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between them that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors should be aware that the representations warranties and covenants or any description thereof may not reflect the actual state of facts or condition of Alexion or any of its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, businesses or equity holders. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties, covenants and events of default may change after the date of such documents, as applicable, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures by Alexion. Accordingly, investors should read the representations and warranties in the Credit Agreement not in isolation but only in conjunction with the other information about Alexion that it includes in reports, statements and other filings it makes with the SEC.

ARTICLE II.
THE COMMITMENTS AND CREDIT EXTENSIONS

2.01    The Loans. (a) Existing Term Loans; The Term Borrowing. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, all Existing Term Loans made to the Administrative Borrower shall be deemed to have been made pursuant hereto, and upon the Closing Date, all Existing Term Loans shall continue as Term Loans in Dollars made to the Administrative Borrower hereunder. The Term Borrowing on the Closing Date shall consist of Term Loans continued simultaneously by the Term Lenders in accordance with their respective Closing Date Term Commitment. Amounts borrowed under this Section 2.01(a) and repaid or prepaid may not be reborrowed. Term Loans may be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Rate Loans, as further provided herein. No Term Loan shall be denominated in an Alternative Currency.
(a)    The Revolving Credit Borrowings. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, (i) all Existing Revolving Credit Loans made to each Borrower shall be deemed to have been made pursuant hereto, and upon the Closing Date, shall continue as Revolving Credit Loans made to such Borrower hereunder (and shall continue, as applicable, as Global Revolving Credit Loans or Domestic Revolving Credit Loans hereunder in accordance with the Global Revolving Credit Commitments or Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable), (ii) each Global Revolving Credit Lender severally agrees to make loans (each such loan, a “Global Revolving Credit Loan”) to the Borrowers in Dollars or in one or more Alternative Currencies from time to time, on any Business Day during the applicable Availability Period, in an aggregate Dollar Equivalent amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of such Lender’s Global Revolving Credit Commitment and (iii) each Domestic Revolving Credit Lender severally agrees

- 62 -




to make loans (each such loan, a “Domestic Revolving Credit Loan” and, together with the Global Revolving Credit Loans, collectively, the “Revolving Credit Loans” or, each, a “Revolving Credit Loan”) to the Administrative Borrower in Dollars from time to time, on any Business Day during the applicable Availability Period, in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of such Lender’s Domestic Revolving Credit Commitment; provided, however, that after giving effect to any Revolving Credit Borrowing, each of the Revolving Credit Extension Requirements shall be satisfied. Within the limits of each Revolving Credit Lender’s applicable Revolving Credit Commitment, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers may borrow under this Section 2.01(b), prepay under Section 2.05, and reborrow under this Section 2.01(b). Revolving Credit Loans may be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Rate Loans, as further provided herein.
2.02    Borrowings, Conversions and Continuations of Loans. (a) Each Term Borrowing, each Revolving Credit Borrowing, each conversion of Term Loans or Revolving Credit Loans from one Type to the other, and each continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be made upon the applicable Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Administrative Agent, which may be given by (A) telephone or (B) a Committed Loan Notice; provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed promptly by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Committed Loan Notice. Each such Committed Loan Notice must be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 noon (i) three Business Days prior to the requested date of any Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans or of any conversion of Eurodollar Rate Loans to Base Rate Loans, (ii) four Business Days (or five Business Days in the case of a Special Notice Currency) prior to the requested date of any Borrowing or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies, and (iii) on the requested date of any Borrowing of Base Rate Loans; provided, however, that if the Borrowers wish to request Eurodollar Rate Loans having an Interest Period other than one, two, three or six months in duration as provided in the definition of “Interest Period,” the applicable notice must be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 noon (i) four Business Days prior to the requested date of such Borrowing, conversion or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, or (ii) five Business Days (or six Business days in the case of a Special Notice Currency) prior to the requested date of such Borrowing, conversion or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies, whereupon the Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice to the Appropriate Lenders of such request and determine whether the requested Interest Period is acceptable to all of them. Not later than 12:00 noon, (i) three Business Days before the requested date of such Borrowing, conversion or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, or (ii) four Business Days (or five Business days in the case of a Special Notice Currency) prior to the requested date of such Borrowing, conversion or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies, the Administrative Agent shall notify the applicable Borrower (which notice may be by telephone) whether or not the requested Interest Period has been consented to by all the Appropriate Lenders. Each Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount of $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $5,000,000 in excess thereof, or otherwise equal to the remaining balance of applicable Commitments. Except as provided in Sections 2.03(c) and 2.04(c), each Borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount of $2,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, or otherwise equal to the remaining balance of applicable Commitments. Each Committed Loan Notice shall specify (i) whether the

- 63 -




applicable Borrower is requesting a Term Borrowing, a Revolving Credit Borrowing, a conversion of Term Loans or Revolving Credit Loans from one Type to the other, or a continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans, (ii) in the case of any Revolving Credit Loan, whether such Revolving Credit Loan is to be a Domestic Revolving Credit Loan or Global Revolving Credit Loan, as applicable, (iii) the requested date of the Borrowing, conversion or continuation, as the case may be (which shall be a Business Day), (iv) the principal amount of Loans to be borrowed, converted or continued, (v) the Type of Loans to be borrowed or to which existing Term Loans or Revolving Credit Loans are to be converted, (vi) if applicable, the duration of the Interest Period with respect thereto, (vii) the currency of the Loans to be borrowed, (viii) if applicable, the Class of Loans and/or Commitments that is the subject of such request, and (ix) if applicable, the Designated Borrower. If the applicable Borrower fails to specify a Type of Loan in a Committed Loan Notice or if the applicable Borrower fails to give a timely notice requesting a conversion or continuation, then the applicable Term Loans or Revolving Credit Loans shall be made as, or converted to, Base Rate Loans; provided, however, that with respect to any such Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency, such Loan shall be automatically continued as a Eurodollar Rate Loan of the same currency with an Interest Period of one month. Any such automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans shall be effective as of the last day of the Interest Period then in effect with respect to the applicable Eurodollar Rate Loans. If any Borrower requests a Borrowing of, conversion to, or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans in any such Committed Loan Notice, but fails to specify an Interest Period, it will be deemed to have specified an Interest Period of one month. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (a) a Swing Line Loan may not be converted to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, (b) no Revolving Credit Loan may be converted into or continued as a Loan denominated in a different currency, but instead must be prepaid in the original currency of such Loan and reborrowed in the other currency and (c) no Term Loan may be converted into or continued as a Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, a Committed Loan Notice with respect to Loans to be made on the Closing Date may be conditioned upon the occurrence of the Closing Date and may be revoked if the Closing Date does not occur, subject to the reimbursement of any breakage costs (in respect of Eurodollar Rate Loans) as provided for in any funding indemnity agreement between the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent. If any Lender makes available to the Administrative Agent funds for any Loan to be made by such Lender as provided pursuant to any such conditional Committed Loan Notice, and such funds are not made available to the Borrowers by the Administrative Agent because the conditions to the Closing Date are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
(a)    Following receipt of a Committed Loan Notice, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Appropriate Lender of the amount (and currency) of its relevant Applicable Percentage under the applicable Facility of the applicable Term Loans or Revolving Credit Loans, and if no timely notice of a conversion or continuation is provided by the applicable Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the details of any automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans or continuation of Loans denominated in a currency other than Dollars, in each case as described in the preceding subsection. In the case of a Term Borrowing or a Revolving Credit Borrowing, each Appropriate Lender shall make the amount of its Loan available to the Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds at the Administrative Agent’s Office for the applicable currency not later than 1:00 p.m. in the case of any Loan denominated in Dollars, and not later than

- 64 -




the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent in the case of any Loan in an Alternative Currency, in each case on the Business Day specified in the applicable Committed Loan Notice. Upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (or, if such Borrowing is the initial Credit Extension, Section 4.01, or, if applicable, Section 2.17), the Administrative Agent shall make all funds so received available to the Borrowers in like funds as received by the Administrative Agent either by (i) crediting the account of the applicable Borrower on the books of Bank of America with the amount of such funds or (ii) wire transfer of such funds, in each case in accordance with instructions provided to (and reasonably acceptable to) the Administrative Agent by the applicable Borrower; provided, however, that if, (x) on the date a Committed Loan Notice with respect to a Revolving Credit Borrowing for the Administrative Borrower denominated in Dollars under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments is given by the Administrative Borrower, there are L/C Borrowings outstanding, then the proceeds of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, first, shall be applied to the payment in full of any such L/C Borrowings, and second, shall be made available to the Administrative Borrower as provided above and (y) on the date a Committed Loan Notice with respect to a Revolving Credit Borrowing under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments for any Designated Borrower is given by a Designated Borrower, there are Designated Borrower L/C Borrowings outstanding, then the proceeds of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, first, shall be applied to the payment in full of any such Designated Borrower L/C Borrowings, and second, shall be made available to the Designated Borrower as provided above, provided, however, that notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, no Revolving Credit Borrowing by a Designated Borrower that is a Foreign Obligor shall be used to pay any L/C Borrowings of or attributed to any U.S. Loan Party (or any other Subsidiary that is organized under the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof).
(b)    Except as otherwise provided herein, a Eurodollar Rate Loan may be continued or converted only on the last day of an Interest Period for such Eurodollar Rate Loan. During the existence of an Event of Default, no Loans may be requested as, converted to or continued as Eurodollar Rate Loans (whether in Dollars or any Alternative Currency) without the consent of the Required Lenders, and the Required Revolving Lenders may demand that any or all of the then outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency be prepaid, or redenominated into Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof, on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto.
(c)    The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for Eurodollar Rate Loans upon determination of such interest rate. At any time that Base Rate Loans are outstanding, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Administrative Borrower and the Lenders of any change in Bank of America’s prime rate used in determining the Base Rate promptly following the public announcement of such change.
(d)    After giving effect to all Term Borrowings, all conversions of Term Loans from one Type to the other, and all continuations of Term Loans as the same Type, there shall not be more than eight (8) Interest Periods in effect in respect of the Term Facility. After giving effect to all Revolving Credit Borrowings, all conversions of Revolving Credit Loans from one Type to the

- 65 -




other, and all continuations of Revolving Credit Loans as the same Type, there shall not be more than eight (8) Interest Periods in effect in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility.
(e)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Lender may exchange, continue or rollover all or a portion of its Loans in connection with any refinancing, extension, incremental increase, loan modification or similar transaction permitted by the terms of this Agreement, pursuant to a cashless settlement mechanism approved by the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and such Lender.
2.03    Letters of Credit. (a) The Letter of Credit Commitment. (i) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, (A) each L/C Issuer agrees, in reliance upon the agreements of the Revolving Credit Lenders set forth in this Section 2.03, (1) from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date until the applicable Letter of Credit Expiration Date, to issue Letters of Credit denominated in Dollars or in one or more Alternative Currencies for the account of any Borrower or any of its respective Restricted Subsidiaries (other than any Foreign Stock Holding Company), and to amend or extend Letters of Credit previously issued by it, in accordance with Section 2.03(b), and (2) to honor drawings under the Letters of Credit; and (B) the Revolving Credit Lenders severally agree to participate in Letters of Credit issued for the account of any Borrower or any of its respective Restricted Subsidiaries (other than any Foreign Stock Holding Company) and any drawings thereunder; provided that after giving effect to any L/C Credit Extension with respect to any Letter of Credit, (x) the Total Revolving Credit Outstandings shall not exceed the Revolving Credit Facility, (y) the Revolving Credit Exposure of any Revolving Credit Lender shall not exceed such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment, and (z) the Outstanding Amount of the L/C Obligations shall not exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit. Each request by any Borrower for the issuance or amendment of a Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be a representation by the Borrowers that the L/C Credit Extension so requested complies with the conditions set forth in the proviso to the preceding sentence. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained herein, no L/C Issuer shall be obligated to issue. amend or extend any Letter of Credit if, immediately after giving effect thereto, the outstanding L/C Obligations in respect of all Letters of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer would exceed such Person’s L/C Issuer Sublimit. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers’ and their Restricted Subsidiaries’ (other than, for the avoidance of any doubt, any Foreign Stock Holding Company) ability to obtain Letters of Credit (as provided herein) shall be fully revolving, and accordingly the Borrowers and their Restricted Subsidiaries (other than any Foreign Stock Holding Company) may, during the foregoing period, obtain Letters of Credit to replace Letters of Credit that have expired or that have been drawn upon and reimbursed in accordance with the terms hereof. All Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.
(i)    No L/C Issuer shall issue any Letter of Credit if:
(A)    subject to Section 2.03(b)(iii), the expiry date of the requested Letter of Credit would occur more than twelve months after the date of issuance or last extension, unless the applicable L/C Issuer and the Administrative Agent have approved such expiry date; or

- 66 -




(B)    the expiry date of such requested Letter of Credit would occur after the Letter of Credit Expiration Date of such L/C Issuer, unless the Administrative Agent and the applicable L/C Issuer have approved such expiry date (it being understood that in the event the expiry date of any requested Letter of Credit would occur after such Letter of Credit Expiration Date, from and after such Letter of Credit Expiration Date, the Borrowers shall immediately Cash Collateralize the then Outstanding Amount of all L/C Obligations in respect of such Letters of Credit in accordance with Section 2.18).
(ii)    No L/C Issuer shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if:
(A)    any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such L/C Issuer from issuing the Letter of Credit, or any Law applicable to such L/C Issuer or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such L/C Issuer shall prohibit, or request that such L/C Issuer refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such L/C Issuer with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which such L/C Issuer is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon such L/C Issuer any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing Date and which such L/C Issuer in good faith deems material to it;
(B)    the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such L/C Issuer applicable to letters of credit generally;
(C)    except as otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer, the Letter of Credit is in an initial stated amount less than $50,000;
(D)    the Letter of Credit is to be denominated in a currency other than Dollars or an Alternative Currency;
(E)    if other than in Dollars, such L/C Issuer does not as of the issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit issue Letters of Credit in the requested currency;
(F)    the Letter of Credit contains any provisions for automatic reinstatement of the stated amount after any drawing thereunder; or
(G)    any Global Revolving Credit Lender is at that time a Defaulting Lender, unless such L/C Issuer has entered into arrangements, including the delivery of Cash Collateral, satisfactory to such L/C Issuer (in its sole discretion) with the applicable Borrower or such Revolving Credit Lender to eliminate such L/C Issuer’s actual or potential Fronting Exposure (after giving effect to Section 2.19(a)(iv)) with respect to the Defaulting Lender arising from either the Letter of Credit then proposed to be issued or that Letter of Credit and all other L/C Obligations as to which such

- 67 -




L/C Issuer has actual or potential Fronting Exposure, as it may elect in its sole discretion.
(iii)    No L/C Issuer shall amend any Letter of Credit if such L/C Issuer would not be permitted at such time to issue the Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof.
(iv)    No L/C Issuer shall be under any obligation to amend any Letter of Credit if (A) such L/C Issuer would have no obligation at such time to issue the Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof, or (B) the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed amendment to the Letter of Credit.
(v)    Each L/C Issuer shall act on behalf of the Global Revolving Credit Lenders with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith, and each L/C Issuer shall have all of the benefits and immunities (A) provided to the Administrative Agent in Article IX with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by such L/C Issuer in connection with Letters of Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and Issuer Documents pertaining to such Letters of Credit as fully as if the term “Administrative Agent” as used in Article IX included each L/C Issuer with respect to such acts or omissions, and (B) as additionally provided herein with respect to the L/C Issuers.
(b)    Procedures for Issuance and Amendment of Letters of Credit; Auto-Extension Letters of Credit.
(i)    Each Letter of Credit shall be issued or amended, as the case may be, upon the request of the Administrative Borrower delivered to the applicable L/C Issuer (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) in the form of a Letter of Credit Application, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Administrative Borrower making such request. Such Letter of Credit Application may be sent by facsimile, by United States mail, by overnight courier, by electronic transmission using the system provided by the applicable L/C Issuer, by personal delivery or by any other means acceptable to the applicable L/C Issuer. Such Letter of Credit Application must be received by such L/C Issuer and the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 noon at least two Business Days (or such later date and time as the Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer may agree in a particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be. In the case of a request for an initial issuance of a Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Application shall specify in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the applicable L/C Issuer: (A) the proposed issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit (which shall be a Business Day); (B) the amount and currency thereof; (C) the expiry date thereof; (D) the name and address of the beneficiary thereof; (E) the documents to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (F) the full text of any certificate to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (G) the purpose and nature of the requested Letter of Credit; and (H) such other matters as such L/C Issuer may reasonably request. In the case of a request for an amendment of any outstanding Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Application shall specify in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the applicable L/C Issuer (1) the Letter of Credit to be

- 68 -




amended; (2) the proposed date of amendment thereof (which shall be a Business Day); (3) the nature of the proposed amendment; and (4) such other matters as such L/C Issuer may reasonably request. Additionally, the Borrowers shall furnish to the applicable L/C Issuer and the Administrative Agent such other documents and information pertaining to such requested Letter of Credit issuance or amendment, including any Issuer Documents, as such L/C Issuer or the Administrative Agent may reasonably require.
(ii)    Promptly after receipt of any Letter of Credit Application, the applicable L/C Issuer will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has received a copy of such Letter of Credit Application from the applicable Borrower and, if not, such L/C Issuer will provide the Administrative Agent with a copy thereof. Unless the applicable L/C Issuer has received written notice from the Required Revolving Lenders, the Administrative Agent or any Loan Party, at least one Business Day prior to the requested date of issuance or amendment of the applicable Letter of Credit, that one or more applicable conditions contained in Article IV shall not then be satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, such L/C Issuer shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of the applicable Borrower (or the applicable Restricted Subsidiary) or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with such L/C Issuer’s usual and customary business practices. Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Global Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the applicable L/C Issuer a risk participation in such Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the product of such Global Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage (determined without regard to any Class or Classes of Global Revolving Credit Commitments of such Lender) times the amount of such Letter of Credit.
(iii)    If any Borrower so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Application, the applicable L/C Issuer may, in its sole discretion, agree to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an “Auto-Extension Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Auto-Extension Letter of Credit must permit the applicable L/C Issuer to prevent any such extension at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the “Non-Extension Notice Date”) in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by such L/C Issuer, no Borrower shall be required to make a specific request to such L/C Issuer for any such extension. Once an Auto-Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Global Revolving Credit Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the applicable L/C Issuer to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than the applicable Letter of Credit Expiration Date of such L/C Issuer (except as contemplated under Section 2.03(a)(ii)(B)); provided, however, that such L/C Issuer shall not permit any such extension if (A) such L/C Issuer has determined that it would not be permitted, or would have no obligation at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its revised form (as extended) under the terms hereof (by reason of the provisions of clause (ii) or (iii) of Section 2.03(a) or otherwise), or (B) it has received notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is seven Business Days before the Non-

- 69 -




Extension Notice Date (1) from the Administrative Agent that the Required Revolving Lenders have elected not to permit such extension or (2) from the Administrative Agent or any Borrower that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 4.02 is not then satisfied, and in each such case directing such L/C Issuer not to permit such extension.
(iv)    Promptly after its delivery of any Letter of Credit or any amendment to a Letter of Credit to an advising bank with respect thereto or to the beneficiary thereof, the applicable L/C Issuer will also deliver to the applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent a true and complete copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment.
(c)    Drawings and Reimbursements; Funding of Participations. (i) Upon receipt from the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit of any notice of a drawing under such Letter of Credit, the applicable L/C Issuer shall notify the applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent thereof; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve the applicable Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such L/C Issuer and the Lenders with respect to any drawing under any Letter of Credit. In the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, the applicable Borrower shall reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer in such Alternative Currency, unless (A) such L/C Issuer (at its option) shall have specified in such notice that it will require reimbursement in Dollars, or (B) in the absence of any such requirement for reimbursement in Dollars, the applicable Borrower shall have notified the applicable L/C Issuer promptly following receipt of the notice of drawing that the applicable Borrower will reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer in Dollars. In the case of any such reimbursement in Dollars of a drawing under a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, the applicable L/C Issuer shall notify the applicable Borrower of the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of the drawing promptly following the determination thereof. If the applicable Borrower shall have received such notice from the applicable L/C Issuer on or prior to 11:00 a.m. on any Business Day, not later than 4:00 p.m. on such Business Day, or, if the applicable Borrower shall have received such notice later than 11:00 a.m. on any Business Day, not later than 11:00 a.m. on the immediately following Business Day (each such Business Day or immediately following Business Day, as the case may be, an “Honor Date”), the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such L/C Issuer through the Administrative Agent in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing and in the applicable currency. In the event that (A) a drawing denominated in an Alternative Currency is to be reimbursed in Dollars pursuant to the second sentence in this Section 2.03(c)(i) and (B) the Dollar amount paid by the applicable Borrower, whether on or after the Honor Date, shall not be adequate on the date of that payment to purchase in accordance with normal banking procedures a sum denominated in the Alternative Currency equal to the drawing, the applicable Borrower agrees, as a separate and independent obligation, to indemnify the applicable L/C Issuer for the loss resulting from its inability on that date to purchase the Alternative Currency in the full amount of the drawing. If the applicable Borrower fails to so reimburse such L/C Issuer by such time, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Global Revolving Credit Lender of the Honor Date, the amount of the unreimbursed drawing (expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency) (the “Unreimbursed Amount”), and the amount of such Global Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage thereof. In such event, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments to be disbursed on the Honor Date in an amount equal

- 70 -




to the Unreimbursed Amount, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified in Section 2.02 for the principal amount of Base Rate Loans, but subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the Global Revolving Credit Commitments and the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (other than the delivery of a Committed Loan Notice). Any notice given by any L/C Issuer or the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.03(c)(i) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.
(i)    Each Global Revolving Credit Lender shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) make funds available (and the Administrative Agent may apply Cash Collateral provided for this purpose) for the account of the applicable L/C Issuer, in Dollars, at the Administrative Agent’s Office for Dollar-denominated payments in an amount equal to its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage (determined without regard to any separate Class or Classes of Global Revolving Credit Commitments of such Lender) of the Unreimbursed Amount not later than 1:00 p.m. on the Business Day specified in such notice by the Administrative Agent, whereupon, subject to the provisions of Section 2.03(c)(iii), each Global Revolving Credit Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Loan to the applicable Borrower under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the applicable L/C Issuer in Dollars.
(ii)    With respect to any Unreimbursed Amount that is not fully refinanced by a Revolving Credit Borrowing of Base Rate Loans under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments because the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 cannot be satisfied or for any other reason, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have incurred from the applicable L/C Issuer an L/C Borrowing in the amount of the Unreimbursed Amount that is not so refinanced, which L/C Borrowing shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at the Default Rate. In such event, each Global Revolving Credit Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(ii) shall be deemed payment in respect of its participation in such L/C Borrowing and shall constitute an L/C Advance from such Lender in satisfaction of its participation obligation under this Section 2.03.
(iii)    Until each Global Revolving Credit Lender funds its Global Revolving Credit Loan or L/C Advance pursuant to this Section 2.03(c) to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for any amount drawn under any Letter of Credit, interest in respect of such Lender’s Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage of such amount shall be solely for the account of such L/C Issuer.
(iv)    Each Global Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Global Revolving Credit Loans or L/C Advances to reimburse each L/C Issuer for amounts drawn under Letters of Credit of such L/C Issuer, as contemplated by this Section 2.03(c), shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the applicable L/C Issuer, any Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the

- 71 -




occurrence or continuance of a Default, (C) any existing Class of Revolving Credit Commitments or (D) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Global Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Global Revolving Credit Loans pursuant to this Section 2.03(c) is subject to the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (other than delivery by the applicable Borrower of a Committed Loan Notice). No such making of an L/C Advance shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the applicable Borrower to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for the amount of any payment made by such L/C Issuer under any Letter of Credit, together with interest as provided herein.
(v)    If any Global Revolving Credit Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of any L/C Issuer any amount required to be paid by such Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.03(c) by the time specified in Section 2.03(c)(ii), then, without limiting the other provisions of this Agreement, the applicable L/C Issuer shall be entitled to recover from such Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the applicable L/C Issuer at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by such L/C Issuer in connection with the foregoing. If such Global Revolving Credit Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Global Revolving Credit Loan included in the relevant Committed Borrowing or L/C Advance in respect of the relevant L/C Borrowing, as the case may be. A certificate of any L/C Issuer submitted to any Global Revolving Credit Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this Section 2.03(c)(vi) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)    Repayment of Participations. (i) At any time after any L/C Issuer has made a payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any Global Revolving Credit Lender such Lender’s L/C Advance in respect of such payment in accordance with Section 2.03(c), if the Administrative Agent receives for the account of the applicable L/C Issuer any payment in respect of the related Unreimbursed Amount or interest thereon (whether directly from the applicable Borrower or otherwise, including proceeds of Cash Collateral applied thereto by the Administrative Agent), the Administrative Agent will distribute to such Lender its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage thereof in Dollars and in the same funds as those received by the Administrative Agent.
(i)    If any payment received by the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) is required to be returned under any of the circumstances described in Section 11.05 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such L/C Issuer in its discretion), each Global Revolving Credit Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such L/C Issuer its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned by such Lender, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect. The obligations

- 72 -




of the Global Revolving Credit Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
(e)    Obligations Absolute. The obligation of the applicable Borrower to reimburse each L/C Issuer for each drawing under each Letter of Credit and to repay each L/C Borrowing shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under all circumstances, including the following:
(i)    any lack of validity or enforceability of such Letter of Credit, this Agreement, or any other Loan Document;
(ii)    the existence of any claim, counterclaim, setoff, defense or other right that any Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), the applicable L/C Issuer or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by such Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated transaction;
(iii)    any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under such Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under such Letter of Credit;
(iv)    waiver by the applicable L/C Issuer of any requirement that exists for such L/C Issuer’s protection and not the protection of the Borrowers or any waiver by the applicable L/C Issuer which does not in fact materially prejudice the Borrowers;
(v)    honor of a demand for payment presented electronically even if such Letter of Credit requires that demand be in the form of a draft;
(vi)    any payment made by the applicable L/C Issuer in respect of an otherwise complying item presented after the date specified as the expiration date of, or the date by which documents must be received under such Letter of Credit if presentation after such date is authorized by the UCC, the ISP or the UCP, as applicable;
(vii)    any payment by the applicable L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by the applicable L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law;

- 73 -




(viii)    any adverse change in the relevant exchange rates or in the availability of the relevant Alternative Currency to the Borrowers or any Restricted Subsidiary or in the relevant currency markets generally; or
(ix)    any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Borrowers or any of their respective Restricted Subsidiaries.
The applicable Borrower shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to it and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with any of the applicable Borrower’s instructions or other irregularity, the applicable Borrower will immediately notify the applicable L/C Issuer. The Borrowers shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against the applicable L/C Issuer and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid.
(f)    Role of L/C Issuers. Each Lender and each Borrower agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, no L/C Issuer shall have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of the L/C Issuers, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Related Parties nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of any L/C Issuer shall be liable to any Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Global Revolving Credit Lenders or the Required Revolving Lenders, as applicable; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable judgment; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Issuer Document. The Borrowers hereby assume all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude any applicable Borrower pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of the L/C Issuers, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Related Parties nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of any L/C Issuer shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in clauses (i) through (ix) of Section 2.03(e); provided, however, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, the applicable Borrower may have a claim against the applicable L/C Issuer, and such L/C Issuer may be liable to the applicable Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential, special, indirect, punitive or exemplary, damages suffered by such Borrower which such Borrower proves were caused by such L/C Issuer’s willful misconduct or gross negligence or such L/C Issuer’s willful failure to pay under any letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit, in each case, by obtaining a final and nonappealable judgment in such Borrowers’ favor by a court of competent jurisdiction. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, each L/C Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to

- 74 -




the contrary, and no L/C Issuer shall be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason. Any L/C Issuer may send a Letter of Credit or conduct any communication to or from the beneficiary via the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (“SWIFT”) message or overnight courier, or any other commercially reasonable means of communicating with a beneficiary.
(g)    Certain Matters Regarding Irish Beneficiaries. Each L/C Issuer that may from time to time issue any Letter of Credit for the benefit of an Irish beneficiary represents and warrants to the Administrative Borrower that it is (and at all times while any such Letter of Credit remains outstanding shall be) authorized to Issue Letters of Credit and/or Lender Issued Guarantees by reason of being either: (i) a credit institution within the meaning of Directive 2013/36/EC (the Directive) who has obtained a valid and continuing authorization within the meaning of the Directive from a competent authority in a Member State of the European Union and that the authority responsible for the supervision of that entity under the Directive has notified the Central Bank of Ireland of the intention of that entity to carry on the business of issuing guarantees and letters of credit in Ireland; (ii) such entity is the holder of a valid and effective banking license granted by the Central Bank of Ireland pursuant to section 9 of the Central Bank Act 1971 (as amended) before the commencement of the European Union (Single Supervisory Mechanism) Regulations 2014 that is deemed, in accordance with Council Regulation (EU) No. 1024/2013 of 15 October 20139 conferring specific tasks on the European Central Bank (the “ECB”) concerning policies relating to the prudential supervision of credit institutions”, to be an authorisation granted by the ECB under that Regulation; or (iii) an insurance company authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland under the European Communities (Non-Life Insurance) Framework Regulations, 1994 (as amended).
(h)    Applicability of ISP; Limitation of Liability. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by an L/C Issuer and the applicable Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued (including any such agreement applicable to an Existing Letter of Credit and it being understood the applicable L/C Issuer and applicable Borrower may agree that the rules of the UCP shall apply to a Letter of Credit), the rules of the ISP shall apply to each Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no L/C Issuer shall be responsible to the applicable Borrower for, and each L/C Issuer’s rights and remedies against the applicable Borrower shall not be impaired by, any action or inaction of such L/C Issuer required or permitted under any law, order, or practice that is required or permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including the Law or any order of a jurisdiction where such L/C Issuer or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP, as applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the ICC Banking Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association (BAFT-IFSA), or the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit chooses such law or practice.
(i)    Letter of Credit Fees. The applicable Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account, subject to Section 2.19, of each Global Revolving Credit Lender in accordance with its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage, in Dollars, a Letter of Credit fee (the “Letter of Credit Fee”) for each Letter of Credit equal to the Applicable Rate times the Dollar Equivalent

- 75 -




of the daily amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. For purposes of computing the daily amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.09. Letter of Credit Fees shall be (i) due and payable on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December, commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on each applicable Letter of Credit Expiration Date and thereafter on demand and (ii) computed on a quarterly basis in arrears. If there is any change in the Applicable Rate during any quarter, the daily amount available to be drawn under each Letter of Credit shall be computed and multiplied by the Applicable Rate separately for each period during such quarter that such Applicable Rate was in effect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, upon the request of the Required Revolving Lenders, while any Event of Default exists, all Letter of Credit Fees shall accrue at the Default Rate.
(j)    Fronting Fee and Documentary and Processing Charges Payable to L/C Issuers. The applicable Borrower shall pay directly to the applicable L/C Issuer for its own account, in Dollars, a fronting fee with respect to each Letter of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer, at the rate per annum equal to 0.125% (or such lesser amount to any respective L/C Issuer as the applicable Borrower may agree in writing with such L/C Issuer), computed on the Dollar Equivalent of the daily amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit on a quarterly basis in arrears. Such fronting fee shall be due and payable on the tenth Business Day after the end of each March, June, September and December in respect of the most recently-ended quarterly period (or portion thereof, in the case of the first payment), commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on each applicable Letter of Credit Expiration Date and thereafter on demand. For purposes of computing the daily amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.09. In addition, the applicable Borrower shall pay directly to each L/C Issuer for its own account, in Dollars, the customary issuance, presentation, amendment and other processing fees, and other standard costs and charges, of such L/C Issuer relating to letters of credit as from time to time in effect. Such customary fees and standard costs and charges are due and payable on demand and are nonrefundable.
(k)    Release of Lenders’ Obligations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other Loan Document, in the event that (i) any L/C Issuer shall have issued, in accordance with Section 2.03(a)(ii)(B), a Letter of Credit with an expiry date occurring after the Letter of Credit Expiration Date and (ii) the applicable Borrower shall have Cash Collateralized the Outstanding Amount of all such L/C Obligations in respect of such Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 2.18, then, upon the provision of such Cash Collateral and without any further action, each Revolving Credit Lender hereunder shall be automatically released from any further obligation to such L/C Issuer in respect of such Letter of Credit, including, without limitation, any obligation of any such Revolving Credit Lender to reimburse such L/C Issuer for amounts drawn under such Letter of Credit or to purchase any risk participation therein; provided, however, that all such obligations of each applicable Revolving Credit Lender hereunder to such L/C Issuer in respect of such Letter of Credit shall be revived if any Cash Collateral provided by the relevant Borrower in respect of such Letter of Credit is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Administrative Agent or such L/C Issuer) to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party, in connection with any

- 76 -




proceeding under any Debtor Relief Laws or otherwise, all as if such Cash Collateral had not been provided. The obligations of the Revolving Credit Lenders under this paragraph shall survive termination of this Agreement.
(l)    Conflict with Issuer Documents. In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of any Issuer Document, the terms hereof shall control.
(m)    Letters of Credit and Lender Issued Guarantees Issued for Restricted Subsidiaries. Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit or Lender Issued Guarantee issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of any obligations of, or is for the account of, a Restricted Subsidiary of the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse each L/C Issuer or Guarantee Lender, as applicable, hereunder for any and all drawings under each Letter of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer or Lender Issued Guarantee (including, in the case of any Letter of Credit or Lender Issued Guarantee issued for the account of a Designated Borrower, to the extent such Designated Borrower fails to reimburse such L/C Issuer or Guarantee Lender for any drawing under any such Letter of Credit or Lender Issued Guarantee, as applicable, in accordance with the terms hereof). The Administrative Borrower hereby acknowledges that the issuance of Letters of Credit and Lender Issued Guarantees for the account of Restricted Subsidiaries of the Administrative Borrower inures to the benefit of the Administrative Borrower, and that the Administrative Borrower’s business derives substantial benefits from the businesses of such Restricted Subsidiaries.
(n)    Discretionary Issuance of Lender Issued Guarantees. Upon request of any Borrower, and at the sole discretion of the Administrative Agent, the Guarantee Lender shall issue Lender Issued Guarantees (within the Letter of Credit Sublimit) in support of obligations of the Administrative Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries, the form and substance of which shall be satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(o)    L/C Issuer Reports to the Administrative Agent. Unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent, each L/C Issuer shall, in addition to its notification obligations set forth elsewhere in this Section, provide the Administrative Agent a Letter of Credit Report, as set forth below:
(i)    on any Business Day, such other information as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request as to the Letters of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer; and
(ii)    for so long as any Letter of Credit issued by an L/C Issuer is outstanding, such L/C Issuer shall deliver to the Administrative Agent (A) on the last Business Day of each calendar month, (B) at all other times a Letter of Credit Report is required to be delivered pursuant to this Agreement, and (C) on each date that (1) an L/C Credit Extension occurs or (2) there is any expiration, cancellation and/or disbursement, in each case, with respect to any such Letter of Credit, a Letter of Credit Report appropriately completed with the information for every outstanding Letter of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer.
2.04    Swing Line Loans. (a) The Swing Line. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Swing Line Lender, in reliance upon the agreements of the other Global Revolving Credit Lenders set forth in this Section 2.04, may in its sole discretion make loans in Dollars (each

- 77 -




such loan, a “Swing Line Loan”) to the Borrowers from time to time on any Business Day during the Availability Period in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of the Swing Line Sublimit, notwithstanding the fact that such Swing Line Loans, when aggregated with the Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage of the Outstanding Amount of Global Revolving Credit Loans and L/C Obligations of the Lender acting as Swing Line Lender, may exceed the amount of such Lender’s Global Revolving Credit Commitment; provided, however, (x) after giving effect to any Swing Line Loan, each of the Revolving Credit Extension Requirements shall be satisfied, (y) the Borrowers shall not use the proceeds of any Swing Line Loan to refinance any outstanding Swing Line Loan and (z) the Swing Line Lender shall not be under any obligation to make any Swing Line Loan if it shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that it has, or by such Credit Extension may have, Fronting Exposure. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers may borrow under this Section 2.04, prepay under Section 2.05, and reborrow under this Section 2.04. Each Swing Line Loan shall bear interest only at a rate based on the Base Rate. Immediately upon the making of a Swing Line Loan, each Global Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swing Line Lender a risk participation in such Swing Line Loan in an amount equal to the product of such Global Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage (determined without regard to any separate Class or Classes of Revolving Credit Commitments of such Lender) times the amount of such Swing Line Loan. All Swing Line Loans shall be issued under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments and no Domestic Revolving Credit Lender shall have any obligation or be deemed to participate in any Swing Line Loan on account of its Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments.
(a)    Borrowing Procedures. Each Swing Line Borrowing shall be made upon any Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent, which may be given by (A) telephone or (B) by a Swing Line Loan Notice; provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed promptly by delivery to the Swing line Lender and the Administrative Agent of a Swing Line Loan Notice. Each such Swing Line Loan Notice must be received by the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, which shall be a minimum of $500,000, (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day, and (iii) if such request is made by the Administrative Borrower on behalf of a Designated Borrower, the applicable Designated Borrower. Promptly after receipt by the Swing Line Lender of any telephonic Swing Line Loan Notice, the Swing Line Lender will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has also received such Swing Line Loan Notice and, if not, the Swing Line Lender will notify the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof. Unless the Swing Line Lender has received notice from the Administrative Agent (including at the request of any Global Revolving Credit Lender) prior to 2:00 p.m. on the date of the proposed Swing Line Borrowing (A) directing the Swing Line Lender not to make such Swing Line Loan as a result of the limitations set forth in the first proviso to the first sentence of Section 2.04(a), or (B) that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Article IV is not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swing Line Lender shall be free to, not later than 3:00 p.m. on the borrowing date specified in such Swing Line Loan Notice, make the amount of its Swing Line Loan available to the Borrowers either at its office by crediting the account of a Borrower on the books

- 78 -




of the Swing Line Lender in Same Day Funds or by wire transfer of such funds, in each case in accordance with instructions provided to, and reasonably acceptable to, the Swing Line Lender by the applicable Borrower.
(b)    Refinancing of Swing Line Loans.
(i)    The Swing Line Lender at any time in its sole discretion may request, on behalf of the Borrowers (each of whom hereby irrevocably authorize the Swing Line Lender to so request on its behalf), that each Global Revolving Credit Lender make a Base Rate Loan in an amount equal to such Lender’s Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage of the amount of Swing Line Loans then outstanding for the account of such Borrower. Such request shall be made in writing (which written request shall be deemed to be a Committed Loan Notice for purposes hereof) and in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.02, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified therein for the principal amount of Base Rate Loans, but subject to the unutilized portion of the Revolving Credit Facility and the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (other than delivery of a Committed Loan Notice). The Swing Line Lender shall furnish the applicable Borrower with a copy of the applicable Committed Loan Notice promptly after delivering such notice to the Administrative Agent. Each Global Revolving Credit Lender shall make an amount equal to its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage of the amount specified in such Committed Loan Notice available to the Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds (and the Administrative Agent may apply Cash Collateral available with respect to the applicable Swing Line Loan) for the account of the Swing Line Lender at the Administrative Agent’s Office for Dollar-denominated payments not later than 1:00 p.m. on the day specified in such Committed Loan Notice, whereupon, subject to Section 2.04(c)(ii), each Global Revolving Credit Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Loan to the applicable Borrower in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Swing Line Lender.
(ii)    If for any reason any Swing Line Loan cannot be refinanced by such a Global Revolving Credit Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.04(c)(i), the request for Base Rate Loans submitted by the Swing Line Lender as set forth herein shall be deemed to be a request by the Swing Line Lender that each of the Global Revolving Credit Lenders fund its risk participation in the relevant Swing Line Loan and each Global Revolving Credit Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender pursuant to Section 2.04(c)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such participation.
(iii)    If any Global Revolving Credit Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender any amount required to be paid by such Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.04(c) by the time specified in Section 2.04(c)(i), the Swing Line Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the Swing Line Lender at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect, plus any administrative, processing

- 79 -




or similar fees customarily charged by the Swing Line Lender in connection with the foregoing. If such Global Revolving Credit Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Global Revolving Credit Loan included in the relevant Committed Borrowing or funded participation in the relevant Swing Line Loan, as the case may be. A certificate of the Swing Line Lender submitted to any Global Revolving Credit Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (iii) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(iv)    Each Global Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Global Revolving Credit Loans or to purchase and fund risk participations in Swing Line Loans pursuant to this Section 2.04(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, any Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default, (C) the Class of any such Loans or (D) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Global Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Global Revolving Credit Loans pursuant to this Section 2.04(c) is subject to the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (other than delivery of a Committed Loan Notice). No such funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of any Borrower to repay Swing Line Loans made for such Borrower’s account, together with interest as provided herein.
(c)    Repayment of Participations. (i) At any time after any Global Revolving Credit Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Swing Line Loan, if the Swing Line Lender receives any payment on account of such Swing Line Loan, the Swing Line Lender will distribute to such Global Revolving Credit Lender its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage (determined without regard to any separate Class or Classes of Global Revolving Credit Commitments of such Lender) thereof in the same funds as those received by the Swing Line Lender.
(i)    If any payment received by the Swing Line Lender in respect of principal or interest on any Swing Line Loan is required to be returned by the Swing Line Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 11.05 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Swing Line Lender in its discretion), each Global Revolving Credit Lender shall pay to the Swing Line Lender its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate. The Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the Swing Line Lender. The obligations of the Global Revolving Credit Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
(d)    Interest for Account of Swing Line Lender. The Swing Line Lender shall be responsible for invoicing the applicable Borrower for interest on the Swing Line Loans. Until each Global Revolving Credit Lender funds its Base Rate Loan or risk participation pursuant to this Section 2.04 to refinance such Global Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Global Revolving

- 80 -




Credit Percentage of any Swing Line Loan, interest in respect of such Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage shall be solely for the account of the Swing Line Lender.
(e)    Payments to Swing Line Lender. The applicable Borrower shall make all payments with respect to Swing Line Loans directly to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Swing Line Lender.
2.05    Prepayments. (a) Optional. (i) Subject to the last sentence of this Section 2.05(a)(i), the Borrowers may, upon notice to the Administrative Agent by the Administrative Borrower, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Term Loans or Revolving Credit Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (i) such notice must be in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. (A) three Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, (B) four Business Days (or five, in the case of prepayment of Loans denominated in Special Notice Currencies) prior to any date of prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies, and (C) on the date of prepayment of Base Rate Loans; (ii) any prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount of $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $5,000,000 in excess thereof, (iii)  any prepayment of Base Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount of $2,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof or, in each case, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding, (iv) the Borrowers shall cause any prepayment of the Term Facility to be made by such applicable Borrowers, in such a manner, and in such amounts as will result in the aggregate amount of such prepayment by all such Borrowers being applied ratably to each Class of Term Loans (or, with respect to Other Incremental Term Loans, less than ratably if so required by the terms thereof), (v) Borrowers may specify prepayments on account of Revolving Credit Loans be applied only to Global Revolving Credit Loans or Domestic Revolving Credit Loans, ratably within such Class. Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment, the Borrowers making such prepayments and the Type(s) of Loans of each such Borrower to be prepaid by such Borrower and, if Eurodollar Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Loans. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Appropriate Lender of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Lender’s ratable portion of such prepayment (based on such Lender’s relevant Applicable Percentage in respect of the relevant Facility). If such notice is given by any Borrower, the applicable Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein; provided that a notice of optional prepayment may state that such notice is conditional upon the effectiveness of any facility or instrument refinancing all or a portion of the outstanding Term Loans or Revolving Credit Commitments or upon the consummation of any other transaction or event, in which case such notice of prepayment may be revoked by the Administrative Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date) if such condition is not satisfied. Any prepayment of a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest on the amount prepaid, together with any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.05. Subject to Section 2.19, each prepayment of the outstanding Term Loans pursuant to this Section 2.05(a) shall be applied to the Term Loans of the Term Lenders (in the manner specified in Section 2.05(a)(iii)) in accordance with their respective relevant Applicable Percentages.

- 81 -




(i)    The applicable Borrower may, upon notice to the Swing Line Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay Swing Line Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (A) such notice must be received by the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. on the date of the prepayment, and (B) any such prepayment shall be in a minimum principal amount of $500,000. Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the relevant Class (if applicable) of the Loans being prepaid. If such notice is given by the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.
(ii)    Voluntary prepayments of Term Loans permitted hereunder shall be applied, subject to the requirements set forth in Section 2.05(a)(i), to the remaining scheduled installments of principal thereof in a manner determined and directed by the Borrowers, provided that in the event that the Borrowers do not specify the order in which to apply voluntary prepayments to reduce scheduled installments of principal, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have elected that such voluntary prepayment be applied on a pro rata basis among all Classes of Term Loans, and, within each Class of Term Loans, to reduce the remaining scheduled installments of principal thereof in direct order of maturity.
(b)    Mandatory.
(i)    If any Loan Party or any of its Subsidiaries Disposes of any property pursuant to Section 7.05(b)) and, in connection therewith, is required to prepay the outstanding principal amount of the Loans, the Borrowers shall prepay an aggregate principal amount of their respective Loans (in such proportionate amounts as the Borrowers shall determine in their discretion, subject to the limitations set forth herein) equal to 100% of such Net Cash Proceeds of such Disposition so required to be applied to the prepayment of Loans pursuant to Section 7.05(b) on or prior to the date that is five (5) Business Days after the date of receipt thereof by such Person (such prepayments to be applied as set forth in clause (ii) below); provided, however, that, with respect to any Net Cash Proceeds realized under a Disposition described in this Section 2.05(b)(i), at the election of the Borrowers (as notified by the Administrative Borrower to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date of such Disposition), and so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, such Loan Party or such Subsidiary may reinvest all or any portion of such Net Cash Proceeds in assets useful for its business so long as within 365 days after the receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds, such reinvestment shall have been consummated (as certified by the Administrative Borrower in writing to the Administrative Agent); and provided further, however, that any Net Cash Proceeds not so reinvested within such 365 day period shall be promptly applied to the prepayment of the Loans as set forth in Section 2.05(b)(ii).
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.05(b)(i), (A) to the extent that any or all of the Net Cash Proceeds of any Disposition by a Foreign Subsidiary giving rise to a prepayment event pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.05(b)(i) (a “Foreign Disposition”) are prohibited by applicable Law from being repatriated to the United States,

- 82 -




the portion of such Net Cash Proceeds so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Loans at the times provided in this Section 2.05(b) but may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary so long as applicable Law will not permit repatriation to the United States (the Borrowers hereby agreeing to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the applicable Foreign Subsidiary to promptly take all actions reasonably required by the applicable Law to permit such repatriation), and once such repatriation of any of such affected Net Cash Proceeds is permitted under the applicable Law, such repatriation will be immediately effected and such repatriated Net Cash Proceeds will be promptly applied to the repayment of the Loans pursuant to this Section 2.05(b) to the extent provided herein and (B) to the extent that the Borrowers have determined in good faith that repatriation of any of or all the Net Cash Proceeds of any Foreign Disposition would have material adverse tax consequences (taking into account any foreign tax credit or benefit actually realized in connection with such repatriation) with respect to such Net Cash Proceeds, the Net Cash Proceeds so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Loans at the times provided in this Section 2.05(b) but may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary.
(ii)    Each prepayment of Loans pursuant to Section 2.05(b)(i) shall be applied, first, to the Term Facility and second, to the Revolving Credit Facility in the manner set forth in clause (viii) of this Section 2.05(b). Mandatory prepayments of Term Loans required hereunder shall be applied on a pro rata basis among all Classes of Term Loans, and, within each Class of Term Loans, to reduce the remaining scheduled installments of principal thereof on a pro rata basis. The Borrowers shall cause any such mandatory prepayment of Term Loans to be made by such applicable Borrowers, in such a manner, and in such amounts as will result in the aggregate amount of such prepayment by all such Borrowers being applied to each Class of Term Loans, on a pro rata basis among all Classes of Term Loans.
(iii)    Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Section 2.05(b), so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, if, on any date on which a prepayment would otherwise be required to be made pursuant to this Section 2.05(b), the aggregate amount of Net Cash Proceeds required by such clause to be applied to prepay Loans on such date is less than or equal to $5,000,000, the Borrowers may defer such prepayment until the first date on which the aggregate amount of Net Cash Proceeds or other amounts otherwise required under this Section 2.05(b) to be applied to prepay Loans exceeds $5,000,000. During such deferral period the Borrowers may apply all or any part of such aggregate amount to prepay Revolving Credit Loans and may, subject to the fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in Article IV, reborrow such amounts (which amounts, to the extent originally constituting Net Cash Proceeds, shall be deemed to retain their original character as Net Cash Proceeds when so reborrowed) for application as required by this Section 2.05(b). Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default during any such deferral period, the Borrowers shall promptly prepay the Loans in the amount of all Net Cash Proceeds received by the Borrowers and other amounts, as applicable, that are required to be applied to prepay Loans under this Section 2.05(b) (without giving effect to the first sentence of this clause (iii)) but which have not previously been so applied.

- 83 -




(iv)    Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Section 2.05(b), so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, if any prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans is required to be made under this Section 2.05(b) prior to the last day of the Interest Period therefor, in lieu of making any payment pursuant to this Section 2.05(b) in respect of any such Eurodollar Rate Loan prior to the last day of the Interest Period therefor, the Borrowers may, in their sole discretion an upon prior notice to the Administrative Agent, deposit an amount sufficient to make any such prepayment otherwise required to be made thereunder together with accrued interest to the last day of such Interest Period into a segregated deposit account (which is subject to sole and exclusive control of the Administrative Agent) until the last day of such Interest Period, at which time the Administrative Agent shall be irrevocably authorized (without any further action by or notice to or from the Borrowers or any other Loan Party) to apply such amount in such deposit account to the prepayment of such Loans in accordance with this Section 2.05(b) (and to the extent requested by the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Borrower shall confirm in writing the authorization set forth herein). Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, the Administrative Agent shall also be irrevocably authorized (without any further action by or notice to or from the Borrowers or any other Loan Party) to apply such amount in such deposit account to the prepayment of the outstanding Loans in accordance with the relevant provisions of this Section 2.05(b).
(v)    If for any reason (other than as result of any fluctuation in currency exchange rates contemplated by clause (vi) below) the Total Global Revolving Credit Outstandings at any time exceed the Revolving Credit Facility comprised of Global Revolving Credit Commitments at such time, the applicable Borrowers shall immediately prepay their respective Global Revolving Credit Loans, Swing Line Loans and L/C Borrowings and/or Cash Collateralize their respective L/C Obligations (other than the L/C Borrowings) in an aggregate amount equal to such excess; provided, that the applicable Borrower shall not be required to Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations pursuant to this Section 2.05(b)(v) unless after the prepayment in full of the Global Revolving Credit Loans, Swing Line Loans and L/C Borrowings such Total Global Revolving Credit Outstandings exceeds the Revolving Credit Facility comprised of Global Revolving Credit Commitments then in effect.
(vi)    If, as result of any fluctuation in currency exchange rates, the Administrative Agent notifies the Administrative Borrower at any time (A) that the Total Global Revolving Credit Outstandings at such time exceed an amount equal to 105% of the Global Revolving Credit Commitments then in effect, (B) L/C Obligations at such time exceed an amount equal to 105% of any applicable L/C Issuer Sublimit or the Letter of Credit Sublimit (as applicable), or (C) L/C Obligations owing to any L/C Issuer at such time exceed an amount equal to 105% of such L/C Issuer’s L/C Issuer Sublimit, then (in each case), within two Business Days after receipt of such notice, the applicable Borrowers shall prepay Global Revolving Credit Loans and/or the applicable Borrowers shall Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations in an aggregate amount at least equal to such excess; provided, however, that, subject to the provisions of Section 2.18, the Borrowers shall not be required to Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations pursuant to this Section 2.05(b)(vi)(A) unless after the

- 84 -




prepayment in full of the Global Revolving Credit Loans, the Total Global Revolving Credit Outstandings exceed the Global Revolving Credit Commitments then in effect. Upon the drawing of any Letter of Credit that has been Cash Collateralized, the funds held as Cash Collateral shall be applied (without any further action by or notice to or from any Borrower or any other Loan Party) to reimburse the L/C Issuers or the Revolving Credit Lenders, as applicable.
(vii)    If for any reason the Total Domestic Revolving Credit Outstandings at any time exceed the Revolving Credit Facility comprised of Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments at such time, the applicable Borrowers shall immediately prepay their respective Domestic Revolving Credit Loans in an aggregate amount equal to such excess.
(viii)    Except as otherwise provided in clauses (v), (vi) or (vii), prepayments of the Revolving Credit Facility made pursuant to this Section 2.05(b), shall be applied to the first, shall be applied ratably to the L/C Borrowings and the Swing Line Loans, and second, shall be applied ratably across each outstanding Class of Revolving Credit Loans, in each case, without a corresponding reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitment, and the amount remaining, if any, after the prepayment in full of all L/C Borrowings, Swing Line Loans and Revolving Credit Loans may be retained by the applicable Borrower for use in the ordinary course of business.
(ix)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement (including this Section 2.05), no prepayment by a Foreign Obligor shall be used to pay or be applied against any obligations of or attributed to any U.S. Loan Party (or any other Subsidiary that is organized under the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof).
2.06    Termination or Reduction of Commitments. (a) Optional. The Borrowers may, upon notice to the Administrative Agent by the Administrative Borrower, terminate the Revolving Credit Facility, the Letter of Credit Sublimit or the Swing Line Sublimit, or from time to time permanently reduce the Revolving Credit Facility, the Letter of Credit Sublimit or the Swing Line Sublimit; provided that (i) any such notice shall be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. three (3) Business Days prior to the date of termination or reduction, (ii) any such partial reduction shall be in an aggregate amount of $5,000,000 or any whole multiple of $5,000,000 in excess thereof and (iii) the Borrowers shall not terminate or reduce (A) the Revolving Credit Facility if, after giving effect thereto and to any concurrent prepayments hereunder, (x) the Total Revolving Credit Outstandings would exceed the Revolving Credit Facility, (y) the Total Global Revolving Credit Outstandings would exceed the Global Revolving Credit Commitments then in effect, or (z) the Total Domestic Revolving Credit Outstandings would exceed the Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments then in effect, (B) the Letter of Credit Sublimit if, after giving effect thereto, the Outstanding Amount of L/C Obligations not fully Cash Collateralized hereunder would exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit, or (C) the Swing Line Sublimit if, after giving effect thereto and to any concurrent prepayments hereunder, the Outstanding Amount of Swing Line Loans would exceed the Swing Line Sublimit; and provided, further, that any notice of reduction or termination may state that such notice is conditional upon the effectiveness of any facility or instrument refinancing all or a portion of the outstanding Term Loans or Revolving Credit

- 85 -




Commitments or upon the consummation of any other transaction or event, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Administrative Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date) if such condition is not satisfied.
(a)    Mandatory. (i) The aggregate Closing Date Term Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero upon the continuation of each Term Lender’s Existing Term Loan as Term Loans hereunder on the Closing Date.
(i)    The aggregate Incremental Term Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the Term Facility Increase Effective Date applicable thereto upon the making of such Incremental Term Loans.
(ii)    If after giving effect to any reduction or termination of Revolving Credit Commitments under this Section 2.06, the Letter of Credit Sublimit or the Swing Line Sublimit exceeds the Revolving Credit Facility comprised of the Global Revolving Credit Commitments at such time, the Letter of Credit Sublimit or the Swing Line Sublimit, as the case may be, shall be automatically reduced by the amount of such excess.
(b)    Application of Commitment Reductions; Payment of Fees. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Appropriate Lenders of any termination or reduction of the Letter of Credit Sublimit, Swing Line Sublimit, the Revolving Credit Commitment or the Term Commitments under this Section 2.06. Upon any reduction of the Term Commitments of any Class, the Term Commitment of each Term Lender under a relevant Class, if any, shall be reduced by such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such reduction amount. Upon any reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments, the Revolving Credit Commitment of each Revolving Credit Lender shall be reduced on a pro rata basis across all Classes of Revolving Credit Commitments (including, without limitation, Global Revolving Credit Commitments and Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments) by such Lender’s Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of such reduction amount. All fees in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility accrued until the effective date of any termination of the Revolving Credit Facility shall be paid on the effective date of such termination.
2.07    Repayment of Loans. (a) Term Loans.
(i)    On the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December (commencing on June 30, 2019), the Administrative Borrower shall repay the Outstanding Amount of the Term Loans (other than Other Incremental Term Loans) in installments equal to the Term Loan Amortization Amount (after giving effect to the application of prepayments of Term Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement); provided that the final principal repayment installment of such Term Loans shall be repaid on the Term Facility Maturity Date and in any event shall be in an amount equal to the aggregate Outstanding Amount of all such Term Loans on such date.
(ii)    [Reserved].
(iii)    In the event that any Other Incremental Term Loans are made, the applicable Borrower shall repay each Class of Other Incremental Term Loans on the dates and in the

- 86 -




amounts set forth in the related Incremental Amendment for such class of Other Incremental Term Loans (after giving effect to the application of prepayments of Term Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement); provided that the final principal repayment installment of each such Class of Term Loans shall be repaid on the Term Facility Maturity Date for such Class and in any event shall be in an amount equal to the aggregate Outstanding Amount of all such Term Loans of such Class on such date.
(b)    Revolving Credit Loans. The applicable Borrower shall repay to the relevant Revolving Credit Lenders on the applicable Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date for each Class of Revolving Credit Loans of such Borrower the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Loans of such Class outstanding to such Borrower on such date (it being understood and agreed that, subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers may make Borrowings of Revolving Credit Loans under any remaining Revolving Credit Commitments of any other Class to effect such repayment).
(c)    Swing Line Loans. The applicable Borrower shall repay the Swing Line Loans of such Borrower on the earlier to occur of (i) the date ten Business Days after such Loan is made and (ii) the latest Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date for any Class of Revolving Credit Commitments maintained by the Swing Line Lender (in its capacity as a Revolving Credit Lender).
(d)    Reallocation of Applicable Percentages after Maturity. Upon the occurrence of a Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date for any applicable Class of Revolving Credit Loans, the relevant Applicable Percentages with respect to each remaining Class of Revolving Credit Commitments shall be readjusted without any further action or consent of any other party (calculated without regard to the Class of Revolving Credit Commitments as to which the Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date has occurred), to reflect the expiration of the Class of Revolving Credit Commitments as to which the Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date has occurred.
2.08    Interest. (a) Subject to the provisions of Section 2.08(b), (i) each Eurodollar Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof for each Interest Period at a rate per annum equal to the Eurodollar Rate for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Rate; (ii) each Base Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable borrowing date at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate; and (iii) each Swing Line Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable borrowing date at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate of the Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class.
(a)    (i)    If any amount of principal of any Loan is not paid when due (without regard to any applicable grace periods), whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, such amount shall thereafter bear interest at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.
(i)    If any Event of Default exists under Section 8.01(f) or 8.01(g), the applicable Borrowers shall pay interest on the principal amount of their outstanding Obligations hereunder at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.

- 87 -




(ii)    Upon the request of the Required Lenders, while any Event of Default exists (other than as set forth in clauses (b)(i) and (b)(ii) above), the applicable Borrowers shall pay interest on the principal amount of their outstanding Obligations hereunder at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.
(iii)    Accrued and unpaid interest on past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be due and payable upon demand.
(b)    Interest on each Loan shall be due and payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date applicable thereto and at such other times as may be specified herein. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law.
2.09    Fees. In addition to certain fees described in Sections 2.03(i) and 2.03(j):
(a)    Commitment Fee. The Administrative Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each (i) Global Revolving Credit Lender in accordance with its Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentage, a commitment fee in Dollars equal to the Applicable Rate times the actual daily amount by which the Revolving Credit Facility comprised of Global Revolving Credit Commitments exceeds the sum of (x) the Dollar Equivalent of the Outstanding Amount of Global Revolving Credit Loans and (y) the Dollar Equivalent of the Outstanding Amount of L/C Obligations (including Obligations under Lender Issued Guarantees), subject to adjustment as provided in Section 2.19, and (ii) Domestic Revolving Credit Lender in accordance with its Applicable Domestic Revolving Credit Percentage, a commitment fee in Dollars equal to the Applicable Rate times the actual daily amount by which the Revolving Credit Facility comprised of Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments exceeds the Outstanding Amount of Domestic Revolving Credit Loans. For the avoidance of doubt, the Outstanding Amount of Swing Line Loans shall not be counted towards or considered usage of the Aggregate Commitments for purposes of determining the commitment fee. The commitment fee shall accrue at all times during the Availability Period, including at any time during which one or more of the conditions in Article IV is not met, and shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December, commencing with the first such date to occur after the Closing Date, and on the last day of the Availability Period. The commitment fee shall be calculated quarterly in arrears, and if there is any change in the Applicable Rate during any quarter, the actual daily amount shall be computed and multiplied by the Applicable Rate separately for each period during such quarter that such Applicable Rate was in effect.
(b)    Other Fees. (i) The Administrative Borrower shall pay to the Persons entitled thereto, in Dollars, the fees in the amounts and at the times specified in the Fee Letter. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.
(i)    The Administrative Borrower shall pay to the Lenders, in Dollars, such fees as shall have been separately agreed upon in writing in the amounts and at the times so specified. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.

- 88 -




2.10    [Reserved].
2.11    Computation of Interest and Fees; Retroactive Adjustments of Applicable Rate. (a) All computations of interest for Base Rate Loans (including Base Rate Loans determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate) shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. All other computations of fees and interest shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year), or, in the case of interest in respect of Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies as to which market practice differs from the foregoing, in accordance with such market practice. Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which the Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Loan or such portion is paid, provided that any Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall, subject to Section 2.13(a), bear interest for one day. Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fee hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. With respect to all Non-LIBOR Quoted Currencies, the calculation of the applicable interest rate shall be determined in accordance with market practice.
(a)    If, as a result of any restatement of or other adjustment to the financial statements of the Administrative Borrower or for any other reason, any Borrower or the Lenders determine that (i) the Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio as calculated by the Administrative Borrower as of any applicable date was inaccurate and (ii) a proper calculation of the Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio would have resulted in higher pricing for such period, the applicable Borrowers shall immediately and retroactively be obligated to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders or applicable L/C Issuer, as the case may be, promptly on demand by the Administrative Agent (or, after the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief with respect to the Borrowers under the Bankruptcy Code, automatically and without further action by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any L/C Issuer), an amount equal to the excess of the amount of interest and fees that should have been paid for such period over the amount of interest and fees actually paid for such period. This paragraph shall not limit the rights of the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any L/C Issuer, as the case may be, under Section 2.03(c)(iii), 2.03(i) or 2.08(b) or under Article VIII. The Administrative Borrower’s obligations under this paragraph shall terminate upon the termination of all Commitments and the indefeasible repayment of all other Obligations hereunder.
2.12    Evidence of Debt. (a) The Credit Extensions made by each Lender shall be evidenced by one or more accounts or records maintained by such Lender and by the Administrative Agent in the ordinary course of business. The accounts or records maintained by the Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error of the amount of the Credit Extensions made by the Lenders to each applicable Borrower and the interest and payments thereon. Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligation of the Borrowers hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to their respective Obligations. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error. Upon the request of any Lender made through the Administrative Agent, each Borrower shall execute

- 89 -




and deliver to such Lender (through the Administrative Agent) a Note, which shall evidence such Lender’s Loans in addition to such accounts or records. Each Lender may attach schedules to its Note and endorse thereon the date, Type (if applicable), amount, currency and maturity of its Loans and payments with respect thereto.
(a)    In addition to the accounts and records referred to in Section 2.12(a) above, each Global Revolving Credit Lender and the Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by the Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Global Revolving Credit Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.
2.13    Payments Generally; Administrative Agent’s Clawback. (a) General. All payments to be made by the Borrowers shall be made free and clear of and without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein and except with respect to principal of and interest on Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, all payments by the Borrowers hereunder shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the applicable Administrative Agent’s Office in Dollars and in Same Day Funds not later than 2:00 p.m. on the date specified herein. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Borrowers hereunder with respect to principal and interest on Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the applicable Administrative Agent’s Office in such Alternative Currency and in Same Day Funds not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent on the dates specified herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may require that any payments due under this Agreement be made in the United States. If, for any reason, any Borrower is prohibited by any Law from making any required payment hereunder in an Alternative Currency, such Borrower shall make such payment in Dollars in the Dollar Equivalent of the Alternative Currency payment amount. The Administrative Agent will promptly distribute to each Appropriate Lender its relevant Applicable Percentage in respect of the relevant Facility (or other applicable share (including on account of Other Incremental Term Loans, Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, Global Revolving Credit Commitments and/or Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments) as provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such Lender’s Lending Office. All payments received by the Administrative Agent (i) after 2:00 p.m., in the case of payments in Dollars, or (ii) after the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent in the case of payments in an Alternative Currency, shall in each case be deemed received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue. If any payment to be made by any Borrower shall come due on a day other than a Business Day, payment shall be made on the next following Business Day, and such extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest or fees, as the case may be.
(a)    (i)    Funding by Lenders; Presumption by Administrative Agent. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing of Eurodollar Rate Loans (or, in the case of any Borrowing of Base Rate Loans, prior

- 90 -




to 12:00 noon on the date of such Borrowing) that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.02 (or, in the case of a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans, that such Lender has made such share available in accordance with and at the time required by Section 2.02) and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the applicable Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the applicable Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in Same Day Funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the applicable Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the applicable Overnight Rate, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing, and (B) in the case of a payment to be made by the Borrowers, the interest rate applicable to Base Rate Loans. If the applicable Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the applicable Borrower the amount of such interest paid by the applicable Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing to the Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by the applicable Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim any Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.
(i)    Payments by Borrowers; Presumptions by Administrative Agent. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Administrative Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or any L/C Issuer hereunder that the applicable Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the applicable Borrowers have made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Appropriate Lenders or applicable L/C Issuer, as the case may be, the amount due. In such event, if any applicable Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Appropriate Lenders or applicable L/C Issuer, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or applicable L/C Issuer, in Same Day Funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the applicable Overnight Rate.
A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Lender or the Administrative Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this subsection (b) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(b)    [Reserved].
(c)    Failure to Satisfy Conditions Precedent. If any Lender makes available to the Administrative Agent funds for any Loan to be made by such Lender as provided in the foregoing provisions of this Article II, and such funds are not made available to the applicable Borrower by the Administrative Agent because the conditions to the applicable Credit Extension set forth in

- 91 -




Article IV are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
(d)    Obligations of Lenders Several. The obligations of the Lenders hereunder to make Term Loans and Revolving Credit Loans, to fund participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans and to make payments pursuant to Section 11.04(c) are several and not joint. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan, to fund any such participation or to make any payment under Section 11.04(c) on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to so make its Loan, to purchase its participation or to make its payment under Section 11.04(c).
(e)    Funding Source. Nothing herein shall be deemed to obligate any Lender to obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner.
2.14    Sharing of Payments by Lenders. If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of (a) Obligations in respect of any of the Facilities due and payable to such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations due and payable to such Lender at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities due and payable to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time) of payments on account of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities due and payable to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time obtained by all the Lenders at such time or (b) Obligations in respect of any of the Facilities owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities owing (but not due and payable) to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Parties at such time) of payment on account of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities owing (but not due and payable) to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time obtained by all of the Lenders at such time then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall (a) notify the Administrative Agent of such fact, and (b) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and subparticipations in L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans of the other Lenders, or make such other adjustments as shall be equitable, so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of Obligations in respect of the Facilities then due and payable to the Lenders or owing (but not due and payable) to the Lenders, as the case may be, provided that:
(i)    if any such participations or subparticipations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations or subparticipations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest; and
(ii)    the provisions of this Section shall not be construed to apply to (x) any payment made by or on behalf of any Borrowers pursuant to and in accordance with the

- 92 -




express terms of this Agreement (including the application of funds arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender, Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, Incremental Term Loans, Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments and Global Revolving Credit Commitments), (y) the application of Cash Collateral provided for in Section 2.18, or (z) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or subparticipations in L/C Obligations or Swing Line Loans to any assignee or participant, other than an assignment to the Borrowers or any Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section shall apply).
It is acknowledged and agreed that the foregoing provisions of this Section reflect an agreement entered into solely among the Lenders (and not any Loan Party). Each Loan Party agrees that no consent of any Loan Party (under any Loan Document) shall be required with respect to any action taken by the Lenders pursuant to such provisions. Each Borrower agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation or subparticipation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against each Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation or subparticipation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Borrower, as the case may be, in the amount of such participation or subparticipation.
2.15    Designated Borrowers.
(a)    Effective as of the date hereof, APH and APIO shall each be a “Designated Borrower” hereunder and may receive Loans under the Revolving Credit Facility for its account on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
(b)    The Administrative Borrower may at any time, upon not less than 15 Business Days’ notice from the Administrative Borrower to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion), designate any additional wholly-owned Foreign Subsidiary (that is not an Immaterial Subsidiary or a Foreign Stock Holding Company) of the Administrative Borrower (an “Applicant Borrower”) as a Designated Borrower to receive Loans hereunder by delivering to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver counterparts thereof to each Lender) a duly executed notice and agreement in substantially the form of Exhibit G (a “Designated Borrower Request and Assumption Agreement”). The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that prior to any Applicant Borrower becoming entitled to utilize the credit facilities provided for herein the Administrative Agent shall have received such supporting resolutions, incumbency certificates, opinions of counsel and other documents or information, in form, content and scope reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, as may be required by the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders in their sole discretion (and, with respect to any Applicant Borrower that is a “legal entity customer” under the Beneficial Ownership Regulation, a Beneficial Ownership Certification with respect to such Applicant Borrower to the extent requested by any Lender and in form, content and scope satisfactory to such Lender), and Notes signed by such Applicant Borrower to the extent any Lenders so require. If the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders reasonably determine that an Applicant Borrower shall be entitled to receive Loans hereunder, then promptly following receipt of all such requested resolutions, incumbency certificates, opinions of counsel and other documents or information reasonably requested, the

- 93 -




Administrative Agent shall send a notice in substantially the form of Exhibit H (a “Designated Borrower Notice”) to the Administrative Borrower and the Lenders specifying the effective date upon which the Applicant Borrower shall constitute a Designated Borrower for purposes hereof, whereupon each of the Lenders agrees to permit such Designated Borrower to receive Loans hereunder, on the terms and conditions set forth herein, and each of the parties agrees that such Designated Borrower otherwise shall be a Borrower for all purposes of this Agreement; provided that (i) no Committed Loan Notice or Letter of Credit Application may be submitted by or on behalf of such Designated Borrower until the date five Business Days after such effective date and (ii) no Designated Borrower Request and Assumption Agreement shall become effective as to any Applicant Borrower if (x) it shall be unlawful for such Applicant Borrower to become a Borrower hereunder or (y) any Lender shall be prohibited under applicable Law or shall not be licensed to make Loans or otherwise extend credit to such Applicant Borrower as provided herein.
(c)    Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Obligations of each Designated Borrower are several in nature and not joint.
(d)    Each Foreign Subsidiary of the Administrative Borrower that is or becomes a “Designated Borrower” pursuant to this Section 2.15 hereby irrevocably appoints the Administrative Borrower as its non-exclusive agent for all purposes relevant to this Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents, including (i) the giving and receipt of notices, (ii) the execution and delivery of all documents, instruments and certificates contemplated herein and all modifications hereto, and (iii) the receipt of the proceeds of any Loans made by the Lenders to any such Designated Borrower hereunder, but such appointment does not limit the right of each Designated Borrower to take these actions directly for its own account; provided, that in the event that the Administrative Agent shall receive conflicting instructions from the Administrative Borrower and a Designated Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall follow the instruction of the Administrative Borrower. Any acknowledgment, consent, direction, certification or other action which might otherwise be valid or effective only if given or taken by all Borrowers, or by each Borrower acting singly, shall be valid and effective if given or taken only by the Administrative Borrower, whether or not any such other Borrower joins therein. Any notice, demand, consent, acknowledgement, direction, certification or other communication delivered to the Administrative Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been delivered to each Designated Borrower.
(e)    The Administrative Borrower may from time to time, upon not less than 15 Business Days’ notice from the Administrative Borrower to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion), terminate a Designated Borrower’s status as such, provided that there are no outstanding Loans payable by such Designated Borrower, or other amounts payable by such Designated Borrower on account of any Loans made to it, as of the effective date of such termination. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Lenders of any such termination of a Designated Borrower’s status.

2.16    Increase in Commitments.
(a)    Increase in Revolving Credit Facility.
(i)    Provided no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, upon notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify the Revolving Credit Lenders), the Administrative Borrower may, from time to time over the term of this Agreement, request an increase in the Revolving Credit Facility by an aggregate amount (for all such requests) not to exceed the Incremental Amount (any such increase in the Revolving Credit Facility, an “Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment”); provided that (i) any such request for an increase shall be in a minimum amount of $50,000,000, and (ii) in no event shall the aggregate amount of increases in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility effected under this Section 2.16(a), plus the aggregate amount of increases in respect of the Term Facility effected under Section 2.16(b) exceed the Incremental Amount. At the time of sending such notice, the Administrative Borrower (in consultation with the Administrative Agent) shall specify in such notice the time period within which each Lender is requested to respond.
(ii)    Each Revolving Credit Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent within such time period whether or not it agrees to increase its Revolving Credit Commitment and, if so, whether by an amount equal to, greater than, or less than its Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of such requested increase. Any Revolving Credit Lender not responding within such time period shall be deemed to have declined to increase its Revolving Credit Commitment.
(iii)    The Administrative Agent shall notify the Administrative Borrower and each Revolving Credit Lender of the Revolving Credit Lenders’ responses to each request made hereunder. To the extent existing Revolving Credit Lenders do not agree to provide the entire amount of such requested increase on the terms requested, the Administrative Borrower may also invite additional Eligible Assignees to provide such Revolving Credit Commitments, provided that any such Eligible Assignees who agree to do so (together with any existing Revolving Credit Lender participating in any such increase, each, an “Increasing Revolving Credit Lender”) enters into a joinder agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuers and the Swing Line Lender (to the extent the same would be required for an assignment under Section 11.06). Nothing contained herein shall constitute, or otherwise be deemed to be, a commitment on the part of any Revolving Credit Lender to increase its Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder.
(iv)    The Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower shall determine (in their sole discretion) (A) the final allocation of such increase (which allocation may be made to specific Lenders, and not others (despite the willingness of such other Lenders to provide any requested increase)) among Increasing Revolving Credit Lenders and Schedule 2.01 attached hereto shall be automatically updated to reflect the same and (B) the effective date (the “Revolving Facility Increase Effective Date”) of any such increase. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the

- 95 -




Revolving Credit Lenders of the final allocation of such increase and the Revolving Facility Increase Effective Date.
(b)    Increase in Term Facility.
(i)    Provided no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, upon notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify the Term Lenders), the Administrative Borrower may from time to time over the term of this Agreement, request an increase in the Term Facility by an aggregate amount (for all such requests) not to exceed the Incremental Amount; provided that (i) any such request for an increase shall be in a minimum amount of $50,000,000, and (ii) in no event shall the aggregate amount of increases in respect of the Term Facility effected under this Section 2.16(b), plus the aggregate amount of increases in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility effected under Section 2.16(a) exceed the Incremental Amount. At the time of sending such notice, the Administrative Borrower (in consultation with the Administrative Agent) shall specify in such notice (A) the time period within which each Term Lender is requested to respond and (B) whether such Incremental Term Commitments are to be (x) commitments to make term loans with terms identical to (and which shall together with any then outstanding Initial Term Loans form a single Class of) the Initial Term Loans or (y) commitments to make term loans with pricing, maturity, amortization, participation in mandatory prepayments and/or other terms different from the Initial Term Loans (“Other Incremental Term Loans”).
(ii)    Each Term Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent within such time period whether or not it agrees to participate in any such increase in the Term Facility and, if so, whether by an amount equal to, greater than, or less than its Applicable Percentage of the existing Term Loans. Any Term Lender not responding within such time period shall be deemed to have declined to participate in such increase in the Term Facility.
(iii)    The Administrative Agent shall notify the Administrative Borrower and each Term Lender of the Term Lenders’ responses to each request made hereunder. To the extent existing Term Lenders do not agree to provide the entire amount of such requested increase in the Term Facility on the terms requested, the Administrative Borrower may also invite additional Eligible Assignees to provide such increase, provided that any such Eligible Assignees who agree to do so (together with any existing Term Lender participating in any such increase, each, an “Increasing Term Lender”) enters into a joinder agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent (to the extent the same would be required for an assignment under Section 11.06). Nothing contained herein shall constitute, or otherwise be deemed to be, a commitment on the part of any Term Lender to participate in such increase in the Term Facility.
(iv)    The Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower shall determine (in their sole discretion) (A) the final allocation of such increase (which allocation may be made to specific Lenders, and not others (despite the willingness of such other Lenders to provide any requested Incremental Term loans)) among Increasing Term Lenders and Schedule 2.01 attached hereto shall be automatically updated to reflect the same and (B) the effective date (the “Term Facility Increase Effective Date”) of any such increase. The

- 96 -




Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the Term Lenders of the final allocation of such increase and the Term Facility Increase Effective Date.
(c)    Conditions to Effectiveness of Increase. As a condition precedent to increase in the Revolving Credit Facility and/or the Term Facility pursuant to this Section 2.16, and the Administrative Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent (i) a certificate of each Loan Party dated as of the Revolving Facility Increase Effective Date or the Term Facility Increase Effective Date, as the case may be, signed by a Responsible Officer of such Loan Party certifying and attaching the resolutions adopted by such Loan Party approving or consenting to such increase, (ii) a certificate of the Administrative Borrower dated as of the Revolving Facility Increase Effective Date or the Term Facility Increase Effective Date, as the case may be, signed by a Responsible Officer of the Administrative Borrower certifying that, before and after giving effect to such increase, (A) the representations and warranties contained in Article V and the other Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects (except to the extent such representations and warranties are qualified with respect to materiality, in which case such representations and warranties are true and correct in all respects) on and as of such Revolving Facility Increase Effective Date or the Term Facility Increase Effective Date, as the case may be, except to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct in all material respects (except to the extent such representations and warranties are qualified with respect to materiality, in which case such representations and warranties are true and correct in all respects) as of such earlier date, and except that for purposes of this Section 2.16, the representations and warranties contained in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 5.05 shall be deemed to refer to the most recent statements furnished pursuant to subsections (a) and (b), respectively, of Section 6.01; provided that in the event that the tranche of Incremental Term Loans is used to finance a Limited Condition Acquisition and to the extent the Incremental Term Lenders participating in such tranche of Incremental Term Loans agree, the foregoing clause (A) shall be limited to customary “specified representations” substantially consistent with the Specified Representations and those representations of the seller or the target company (as applicable) included in the acquisition agreement related to such Limited Condition Acquisition that are material to the interests of the Lenders and only to the extent that the Administrative Borrower or its applicable Subsidiary has the right to terminate its obligations under such acquisition agreement as a result of a failure of such representations to be accurate, (B) after giving effect to any such increase, the Borrowers shall be in compliance on a pro forma basis with each of its Financial Covenants (including, in the case of any increase in accordance with the definition of Incremental Amount, a calculation of the Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio on a Pro Forma Basis), and (C) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; provided, that in the event that any tranche of Incremental Term Loans is used to finance a Limited Condition Acquisition, to the extent the Incremental Term Lenders participating in such tranche of Incremental Term Loans agree, the foregoing clause (C) shall be tested at the time of the execution of the acquisition agreement related to such Limited Condition Acquisition (provided, that such Incremental Term Lenders shall not be permitted to waive any Default or Event of Default then existing or existing after giving effect to such tranche of Incremental Term Loans) and (iii) such other documents and legal opinions consistent with those delivered on the Closing Date as to such matters as are reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent. The parties hereto agree that, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Administrative

- 97 -




Agent, the Borrowers, each Increasing Revolving Credit Lender and each other Revolving Credit Lender, as applicable, may make arrangements reasonably satisfactory to such parties to cause an Increasing Revolving Credit Lender to temporarily hold risk participations in the Revolving Credit Loans of the other Revolving Credit Lenders (rather than fund its Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of all applicable outstanding Revolving Credit Loans concurrently with the applicable Revolving Facility Increase Effective Date) with a view toward minimizing breakage costs and transfers of funds in connection with any increase in the Revolving Credit Facility. The Borrowers acknowledges that if (despite any arrangements established pursuant to the foregoing sentence), as a result of a non-pro-rata increase in the Revolving Credit Commitments, any Eurodollar Rate Loans must be prepaid or converted (in whole or in part) on a day other than the last day of an Interest Period therefor in order to keep the applicable outstanding Revolving Credit Loans ratable with any revised Applicable Revolving Credit Percentages, then such prepayment or conversion shall be subject to the provisions of Section 3.05.
(d)    Terms of Increase.
(i)    Any increase in the Revolving Credit Facility shall be made on the same terms (including, without limitation, interest, payment and maturity terms), and shall be subject to the same conditions as existing Revolving Credit Commitments (or, if more than one Class of Revolving Credit Commitments is then outstanding, the Revolving Credit Commitments with the then latest Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date) (it being understood that (A) increases may be effected separately under Global Revolving Credit Commitments and Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments and (B) customary arrangement or commitment fees payable to Arrangers or one or more Increasing Revolving Credit Lenders, as the case may be, may be different from those paid with respect to the existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the existing Revolving Credit Lenders on or prior to the Closing Date or with respect to any other Increasing Revolving Credit Lender in connection with any other increase in the Revolving Credit Facility pursuant to this Section 2.16).
(ii)    Any increase in the Term Facility (except Other Incremental Term Loans) shall be made on the same terms (including, without limitation, interest, payment, amortization and maturity terms), and shall be subject to the same conditions as existing Term Commitments (it being understood that customary arrangement or commitment fees payable to the Arrangers or one or more Increasing Term Lenders, as the case may be, may be different from those paid with respect to the existing Term Commitments of the existing Term Lenders on or prior to the Closing Date or with respect to any other Increasing Term Lender in connection with any other increase in the Term Facility pursuant to this Section 2.16).
(iii)    Other Incremental Term Loans may be made on pricing, maturity, amortization, participation in mandatory prepayments and/or other terms different from the Initial Term Loans as set forth in the notice provided by the Administrative Borrower to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.16(b)(i); provided, that:

- 98 -




(A)    the Other Incremental Term Loans incurred pursuant to this Section 2.16 shall rank equally and ratably in right of security with the Initial Term Loans or, at the option of the Administrative Borrower, shall rank junior in right of security with the Initial Term Loans (provided, that if such Other Incremental Term Loans rank junior in right of security with the Initial Term Loans, such Other Incremental Term Loans shall be subject to a Permitted Junior Intercreditor Agreement and, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not be subject to clauses (D) and (H) below),
(B)    the final maturity date of any such Other Incremental Term Loans shall be no earlier than the Latest Maturity Date applicable to the Term Loans in effect at the date of incurrence of such Other Incremental Term Loans and, except as to pricing, amortization, final maturity date, participation in mandatory prepayments and ranking as to security (which shall, subject to the other clauses of this proviso, be determined by the Administrative Borrower and the Incremental Term Lenders in their sole discretion), shall have (x) the same terms as the Initial Loans or (y) such other terms as shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent,
(C)    the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of any such Other Incremental Term Loans shall be no shorter than the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Term Loans with the longest remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity,
(D)    with respect to any Other Incremental Term Loan, the All-in Yield shall be as agreed by the respective Incremental Term Lenders and the Administrative Borrower, except that the All-in Yield in respect of any such Other Incremental Term Loan may exceed the All-in Yield in respect of the Initial Term Loans by no more than 0.50%, or if it does so exceed such All-in Yield (such difference, the “Term Yield Differential”) then the Applicable Margin applicable to such Initial Term Loans shall be increased such that after giving effect to such increase, the Term Yield Differential shall not exceed 0.50%,
(E)    such Other Incremental Term Loans may participate on a pro rata basis or a less than pro rata basis (but not a greater than pro rata basis) than the Initial Term Loans in any mandatory prepayment hereunder,
(F)    there shall be no borrower (other than the Administrative Borrower) or guarantor (other than the Domestic Subsidiary Guarantors) in respect of any Incremental Term Loan Commitments,
(G)    Other Incremental Term Loans and Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments shall not be secured by any asset of the Administrative Borrower or its Subsidiaries other than the Collateral,
(H)    to the extent that any representation or warranty, affirmative covenant, negative covenant or event of default relating to any such Other

- 99 -




Incremental Term Loan is more restrictive than or is in addition to such respective terms and/or provisions applicable to the Initial Term Loans, as reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent (each such provision, an “Incorporated Provision”), then, upon written notice by the Administrative Agent to the Administrative Borrower, for so long as such Other Incremental Term Loan remains outstanding, each such Incorporated Provision shall be automatically (without any further action of any other Person) incorporated as an additional term and provision hereof applicable to each of the Initial Term Loans (it being understood that the provisions hereof that are applicable to the Initial Term Loans shall not be modified in any manner to make any other terms or provisions hereof less restrictive); and
(I)    to the extent the terms of such Other Incremental Term Loans are inconsistent with the Initial Term Facility, such terms shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(e)    Incremental Amendment. Other Incremental Term Loans shall be established pursuant to an amendment (each, a “Incremental Amendment”) to this Agreement among the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Agent and each Increasing Term Lender, if any, providing Other Incremental Term Loans thereunder, which shall be consistent with the provisions set forth in Section 2.16(d) (but which shall not require the consent of any other Lender). The effectiveness of any Incremental Amendment shall be subject to the satisfaction on the date thereof of each of the conditions set forth in Section 2.16(c), any other condition as may be agreed among the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Increasing Term Lender(s) providing the Other Incremental Term Loans. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Incremental Amendment and the matters specified therein. Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that this Agreement and the other Loan Documents may be amended pursuant to an Incremental Amendment, without the consent of any other Lender, to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to (i) reflect the existence and terms of the Other Incremental Term Loans incurred pursuant thereto, and (ii) effect such other amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.16, in each case, in a manner consistent with the terms of Section 2.16(d) and the Required Lenders hereby expressly authorize the Administrative Agent to enter into any such Incremental Amendment. Any amendment to this Agreement or any other Loan Document that is necessary to effect the provisions of this Section 2.16(e) and any such collateral and other documentation shall be deemed “Loan Documents”.
(f)    Conflicting Provisions. This Section shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.14 or 11.01 to the contrary.
2.17    Extensions of Revolving Credit Commitments.
(a)    Request for Extended Revolving Commitments. The Borrowers may at any time and from time to time, upon written request to and the consent of the Administrative Agent, request (each, a “Revolving Extension Request”) that an aggregate principal amount of not less than $100,000,000 of the then existing Revolving Credit Commitments of any Class (each, an “Existing

- 100 -




Revolving Tranche”) be amended to, among other things, extend the applicable Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date with respect thereto (the “Existing Revolving Maturity Date”) to a date that is no earlier than the then Latest Maturity Date of any other Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder (any such Revolving Credit Commitments so amended, “Extended Revolving Credit Commitments”); provided that (i) after giving effect to any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments under this Section 2.17, there shall be no more than three (3) Classes of Revolving Credit Commitments (without giving regard to Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments and Global Revolving Credit Commitments) outstanding at any time and (ii) any such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be offered on the same terms to each Revolving Credit Lender under the applicable Existing Revolving Tranche on a ratable basis. For the avoidance of doubt, the reference to “on the same terms” in the preceding sentence shall mean, that all of the Revolving Credit Lenders holding such Existing Revolving Tranche are offered to be extended for the same amount of time, offered the same type of Revolving Credit Commitment and that the interest rate changes and fees payable with respect to such extension are the same. Promptly after receipt of any Revolving Extension Request, the Administrative Agent shall provide a copy of such request to each of the Revolving Credit Lenders under the applicable Existing Revolving Tranche to be amended, which request shall set forth the proposed terms (which shall be determined in consultation with the Administrative Agent) of the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments to be established. Each Revolving Extension Request shall specify (A) the applicable Class of Revolving Credit Commitments and Revolving Credit Loans hereunder to be extended, (B) whether such Revolving Credit Commitments are Global Revolving Credit Commitments or Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments, (C) the date to which the applicable maturity date is sought to be extended, and (D) the changes, if any, to the Applicable Rate to be applied in determining the interest payable on the Revolving Credit Loans of, and fees payable hereunder to, Extending Revolving Credit Lenders in respect of that portion of their Revolving Credit Commitments and Revolving Credit Loans extended to such new maturity date; provided, however, that such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall, except as to interest rates, fees and any other pricing terms and final maturity, have the same terms (including borrowing terms and payment terms (other than payment on the applicable Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date)) as the existing Class of Revolving Credit Commitments from which they are extended. At the time of sending such notice, the Administrative Borrower (in consultation with the Administrative Agent) shall specify the time period within which each applicable Revolving Credit Lender is requested to respond to such request (which shall in no event be less than fifteen (15) calendar days (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent) from the date of delivery of such notice to such Revolving Credit Lenders) and shall agree to such procedures, if any, as may be established by, or reasonably acceptable to, the Administrative Agent to accomplish the purposes of this Section 2.17.
(b)    Election to Extend. Any Revolving Credit Lender wishing to have all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitments under the Existing Revolving Tranche amended into Extended Revolving Credit Commitments (each, an “Extending Revolving Credit Lender”) specified in the Revolving Extension Request shall notify the Administrative Agent on or prior to the response date specified in such Revolving Extension Request of the amount of its Revolving Credit Commitments it has elected to be amended (subject to any minimum denomination requirements imposed by the Administrative Agent not to exceed $25,000,000). No Revolving Credit Lender shall have any obligation to agree to provide any Extended Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to any

- 101 -




Revolving Extension Request. Any Revolving Credit Lender not responding on or prior to such response date shall be deemed to have declined such Revolving Extension Request. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Administrative Borrower and each Revolving Credit Lender under the applicable Existing Revolving Credit Tranche of responses to such Revolving Extension Request. In the event that the aggregate principal amount of existing Revolving Credit Commitments that the Extending Revolving Credit Lenders have elected to amend pursuant to the relevant Revolving Extension Request exceeds the amount of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments requested by the Borrowers, the principal amount of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments requested by the Borrowers shall be allocated to each Extending Revolving Credit Lender in such manner and in such amounts as may be agreed by Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower, in their sole discretion.
(c)    Revolving Extension Amendment. Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be established pursuant to an amendment (each, a “Revolving Extension Amendment”) to this Agreement among the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and each Extending Revolving Credit Lender, if any, providing an Extended Revolving Credit Commitment, which shall be consistent with the provisions set forth in Sections 2.17(a), (b) and (d) (but which shall not require the consent of any other Lender). The effectiveness of any Revolving Extension Amendment shall be subject to the satisfaction on the date thereof of each of the conditions set forth in Sections 4.02(a) and 4.02(b) (with all references in such Sections to a Borrowing being deemed to be references to such Revolving Extension Request) and receipt of a certificate to that effect and, any other condition as may be agreed among the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Extending Revolving Credit Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Revolving Extension Amendment and the matters specified therein. Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that this Agreement and the other Loan Documents may be amended pursuant to a Revolving Extension Amendment, without the consent of any other Lender, to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to (i) reflect the existence and terms of the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments incurred pursuant thereto, and (ii) effect such other amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.17, in each case, in a manner consistent with the terms of this Section 2.17 and the Required Lenders hereby expressly authorize the Administrative Agent to enter into any such Revolving Extension Amendment.
(d)    Terms of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments. Except as expressly provided herein, all Extended Revolving Credit Commitments effected pursuant to any Revolving Extension Request and Revolving Extension Amendment shall be subject to the same terms, and shall be subject to the same conditions as the Existing Revolving Tranche. After giving effect to any Extended Revolving Credit Commitment, all borrowings under the Global Revolving Credit Commitments (including any such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) or, as applicable, Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments and repayments thereunder shall be made on a pro rata basis (except for (x) any payments of interest and fees at different rates on any Revolving Extension Series (and related Loans thereunder), (y) repayments required upon the applicable Revolving Credit Facility Maturity Date of other Revolving Credit Commitments and (z) except as otherwise expressly set forth herein). If a Revolving Extension Amendment has become effective hereunder, not later than the third Business Day prior to the Existing Maturity Date, the Borrowers shall make prepayments

- 102 -




of Revolving Credit Loans and shall Cash Collateralize Letters of Credit, such that, after giving effect to such prepayments and such provision of Cash Collateral, the aggregate Total Global Revolving Credit Exposure and/or, as applicable, Total Domestic Revolving Credit Exposure as of such date will not exceed the aggregate applicable Extended Revolving Credit Commitments consisting of Global Revolving Credit Commitments and Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments of the Extended Revolving Lenders (and the Borrowers shall not be permitted thereafter to request any Revolving Credit Loan or any issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of a Letter of Credit if, after giving effect thereto, the applicable Revolving Credit Exposure would exceed the aggregate amount of the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments (consisting of, as applicable, Global Revolving Credit Commitments and Domestic Revolving Credit Commitments) then in effect).
(e)    Revolving Extension Series. Any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments effected pursuant to a Revolving Extension Request shall be designated a series (each, a “Revolving Extension Series”) of Extended Revolving Commitments for all purposes of this Agreement; provided that any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments effected from an Existing Revolving Tranche may, to the extent provided in the applicable Revolving Extension Amendment, be designated as an increase in any previously established Revolving Extension Series with respect to such Existing Revolving Tranche. In connection with the foregoing, Schedule 2.01 attached hereto shall be updated to reflect each applicable Revolving Extension Series, in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(f)    Conflicting Provisions. This Section shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.14 or 11.01 to the contrary.
2.18    Cash Collateral.
(a)    Certain Credit Support Events. If (i) any L/C Issuer has honored any full or partial drawing request under any Letter of Credit and such drawing has resulted in an L/C Borrowing, (ii) as of any Letter of Credit Expiration Date, any L/C Obligation of the relevant L/C Issuer for any reason remains outstanding, (iii) the Borrowers shall be required to provide Cash Collateral pursuant to Section 8.02(c), or (iv) there shall exist a Defaulting Lender, the applicable Borrowers shall, solely with respect to their respective outstanding Letters of Credit or L/C Borrowings, as applicable, immediately (in the case of clause (iii) above) or within two (2) Business Day (in all other cases) following any request by the Administrative Agent or the applicable L/C Issuer, provide Cash Collateral not less than the applicable Minimum Collateral Amount (determined in the case of Cash Collateral provided pursuant to clause (iv) above, after giving effect to Section 2.19(a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).
(b)    Grant of Security Interest. The Borrowers, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to (and subjects to the control of) the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the applicable L/C Issuer and the Lenders, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein, and all other property so provided as collateral pursuant hereto, and in all proceeds of the foregoing, all as security for the obligations to which such Cash Collateral may be applied pursuant to Section 2.18(c).

- 103 -




Agent or the applicable L/C Issuer as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the Minimum Collateral Amount, the applicable Borrower or, to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (it being understood and agreed that, except as a result of the application of Section 2.19(a)(ii), no Defaulting Lender shall be otherwise required to separately provide Cash Collateral). All Cash Collateral (other than credit support not constituting funds subject to deposit) shall be maintained in blocked, non-interest bearing deposit accounts of the Administrative Agent. The applicable Borrower shall pay on demand therefor from time to time all customary account opening, activity and other administrative fees and charges in connection with the maintenance and disbursement of Cash Collateral.

(d)    Release. Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce Fronting Exposure or to secure other obligations shall be released promptly following (i) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure or other obligations giving rise thereto (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Revolving Credit Lender (or, as appropriate, its assignee following compliance with Section 11.06(b)(vi)) or (ii) the Administrative Agent’s good faith determination that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided, however, (x) Cash Collateral furnished by or on behalf of a Loan Party shall not be released (other than to the application to the payment of Obligations) during the continuance of an Event of Default, (y) any such release shall be without prejudice to, and any disbursement or other transfer of Cash Collateral shall be and remain subject to, any other Lien conferred under the Loan Documents and the other applicable provisions of the Loan Documents, and (z) the Person providing Cash Collateral and the applicable L/C Issuer may agree that Cash Collateral shall not be released but instead held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations.

2.19    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as that Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable Law:
(i)    Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of “Required Lenders”, “Required Revolving Lenders”, “Required Term Lenders” and Section 11.01.
(ii)    Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VIII or otherwise) or received by the Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 11.08, shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender, if any, to the L/C Issuers or Swing Line Lender hereunder; third, to Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuers’ Fronting Exposure, if any, with respect to such Defaulting Lender according with Section 2.18; fourth, as the Administrative Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; fifth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement and (y) if applicable, Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuers’ future Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement, in accordance with Section 2.18; sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders, the L/C Issuers or Swing Line Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender, any L/C Issuer or the Swing Line Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrowers as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrowers against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or L/C Borrowings in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, or as applicable, L/C Obligations owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis with respect to any applicable Class prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or L/C Obligations owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Classes of the relevant

- 105 -




Classes of Loans and/or funded and unfunded participations in L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans (as applicable) are held by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the Commitments (including any applicable Class of Commitments) hereunder without giving effect to Section 2.19(a)(iv). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post Cash Collateral pursuant to this Section 2.19(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)    Certain Fees.
(A)    No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any fee payable under Section 2.09(a) or 2.09(b) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender).
(B)    Each Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive Letter of Credit Fees for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to the extent allocable to its relevant Applicable Percentage of the stated amount of Letters of Credit or for which it has provided Cash Collateral pursuant to Section 2.18.
(C)    With respect to any fee payable under Section 2.09(a) or any Letter of Credit Fee not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (A) or (B) above, the Borrowers shall (x) pay to each Non-Defaulting Lender (that is Global Revolving Credit Lender) that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participation in L/C Obligations or Swing Line Loans that has been reallocated to such Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iv) below, (y) pay to the applicable L/C Issuer and Swing Line Lender, as applicable, the amount of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to such applicable L/C Issuer’s or Swing Line Lender’s Fronting Exposure to such Defaulting Lender, and (z) not be required to pay the remaining amount of any such fee.
(iv)    Reallocation of Applicable Percentages to Reduce Fronting Exposure. During any period in which there is a Global Revolving Credit Lender that is a Defaulting Lender, all or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s participation in L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans shall be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Lenders that are Global Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Global Revolving Credit Percentages (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender’s Global Revolving Credit Commitment) but only to the extent that after giving effect to such reallocation (x) the Revolving Credit Extension Requirements are satisfied and (y) no Non-Defaulting Lender is allocated any Class of Revolving Credit Commitments which it does not maintain. Subject to Section 11.24, no reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Revolving Credit Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a Non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.

- 106 -




(v)    Cash Collateral, Repayment of Swing Line Loans. If the reallocation described in clause (a)(iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the applicable Borrowers shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under applicable Law, (x) first, prepay their respective Swing Line Loans in an amount equal to the Swing Line Lenders’ Fronting Exposure and (y) second, Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuers’ Fronting Exposure in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.18.
(b)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and in the case of a Global Revolving Credit Lender that is a Defaulting Lender, the Swing Line Lender and the L/C Issuers, agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any Cash Collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may reasonably determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and, as applicable, unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Applicable Revolving Credit Percentages (without giving effect to Section 2.19(a)(iv)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrowers while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
2.20    Foreign Obligors Not Obligated For U.S. Loan Party Obligations. Notwithstanding any contrary provisions in any Loan Document, all references in the Loan Documents to payments, proceeds, liabilities, Obligations, Loans, fees, collections, Guarantees, Collateral, security interests, pledges, L/C Advances, L/C Borrowings and any other arrangement affecting the payment obligations of the Borrowers and the other Loan Parties and their responsibilities to the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, Swing Line Lender, L/C Issuers and the other Secured Parties, shall mean, in the case of and as applied to any U.S. Loan Party, only such U.S. Loan Party and the other U.S. Loan Parties Guaranteeing the Obligations of such U.S. Loan Party, such that no payments received from, or collections on account of the property or assets of, a Foreign Obligor (or rights to such receipt or such collection) shall be applied to such U.S. Loan Party’s Obligations (or the Obligations of any other Subsidiary organized under the laws of the United States or any political subdivision thereof), it being the intention of the parties hereto to avoid adverse tax consequences due to the application of Section 956 of the Code. All provisions contained in any Loan Document or side letter shall be interpreted consistently with this Section 2.20 to the extent possible, and where such other provisions conflict with the provisions of this Section 2.20, the provisions of this Section 2.20 shall govern.

3.01    Taxes. (a) Payments Free of Taxes; Obligation to Withhold; Payments on Account of Taxes. (i) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party hereunder or under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable Laws. If any applicable Laws require the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by the Administrative Agent or a Loan Party, then the Administrative Agent or such Loan Party shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding, including upon the basis of the information and documentation to be delivered pursuant to subsection (e) below.
(i)    If any Loan Party or the Administrative Agent shall be required by the Code to withhold, deduct or remit any Taxes, including both United States Federal backup withholding and withholding taxes, from any payment, then (A) the applicable withholding agent shall withhold or make such deductions as are required under the Code (if applicable, based upon the information and documentation it has received pursuant to subsection (e) below), (B) the applicable withholding agent shall timely pay the full amount withheld or deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with the Code, and (C) to the extent that the withholding or deduction is made on account of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after any required withholding or deduction (including withholdings or deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.01) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such withholding or deduction been made.
(ii)    If any Loan Party or the Administrative Agent shall be required by any applicable Laws other than the Code to withhold or deduct any Taxes from any payment, then (A) the applicable withholding agent, as required by such Laws, shall withhold or make such deductions as are determined by it to be required based upon the information and documentation it has received pursuant to subsection (e) below, (B) the applicable withholding agent shall, to the extent required by such Laws, timely pay the full amount so withheld or deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with such Laws, and (C) to the extent that the withholding or deduction is made on account of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after any required withholding or deduction (including withholdings or deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.01) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such withholding or deduction been made; provided that no Loan Party shall be required to make an increased payment to a specific Recipient under paragraph (C) in connection with any withholding or deduction of (I) any amounts in respect of Irish Withholding Tax to the extent the relevant payment could have been made to such Recipient without such withholding or deduction if such Recipient were an Irish Qualifying Lender, but on that date the Recipient is not or has ceased to be an Irish Qualifying Lender (other than as a result of any Change in Law after the date on which such Recipient became party to this Agreement (or, if later, acquired the interest in the applicable Loan or Commitment) or (II) any amounts in respect of Taxes (including, without limitation, any Irish Withholding Tax) to the extent the relevant

- 108 -




payment could have been made to such Recipient without such withholding or deduction had had the Recipient complied with its obligations under Section 3.01(e).
(b)    Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrowers. Without limiting the provisions of subsection (a) above, but without duplication of any amounts in respect of which an additional payment was made pursuant to Section 3.01(a), the Administrative Borrower shall (or shall cause the applicable Loan Party to) timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes, excluding in each case, such amounts resulting from a Lender’s assignment, grant of a participation, transfer or assignment or designation of a new Lending Office or other office for receiving payments under any Loan Document.
(c)    Tax Indemnifications. (i) Without duplication of any amounts in respect of which an additional payment was made pursuant to Section 3.01(a), the Administrative Borrower shall (or shall cause the applicable Loan Party to), indemnify each Recipient, and shall (or shall cause the applicable Loan Party to) make payment in respect thereof within 10 Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 3.01) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto (except that no Loan Party shall be required to indemnify or pay any amounts to a specific Recipient under this Section 3.01(c) in connection with any withholding or deduction of (I) any amounts in respect of Irish Withholding Tax to the extent such Irish Withholding Tax would not have been imposed or required to be deducted, withheld or paid if the such Recipient were an Irish Qualifying Lender, but on that date the Recipient is not or has ceased to be an Irish Qualifying Lender other than as a result of any Change in Law after the date on which such Recipient became party to this Agreement or (II) any amounts in respect of Taxes (other than Taxes imposed under the Code, but including, without limitation, any Irish Withholding Tax) to the extent such Tax would not have been imposed or required to be deducted, withheld or paid had the Recipient complied with its obligations under Section 3.01(e)); provided that if the Administrative Borrower reasonably believes that such Taxes were not correctly or legally asserted, each Recipient will use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Administrative Borrower to obtain a refund of such Taxes so long as such efforts would not, in the sole good faith determination of such Recipient, (A) result in any unreimbursed additional costs, expenses or risks, (B) require such Recipient to disclose any confidential information, (C) require such Recipient to take any action that is inconsistent with its policies and procedures, or (D) be otherwise disadvantageous to it; provided further that no Loan Party shall be required to compensate or make any payment to any Recipient pursuant to this Section 3.01 for any amounts incurred in any fiscal year for which such Recipient is claiming compensation if such Recipient does not furnish notice of such claim within six (6) months from the end of such fiscal year; provided further that if the circumstances giving rise to such claim have a retroactive effect, then the beginning of such six (6) month period shall be extended to include such period of retroactive effect. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Administrative Borrower by a Lender or any L/C Issuer (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or any L/C Issuer, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

- 109 -




(i)    Each Lender and each L/C Issuer shall, and does hereby, severally indemnify, and shall make payment in respect thereof within 10 days after demand therefor, (x) the Administrative Agent against Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes attributable such Lender or such L/C Issuer, (but only to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, (but only to the extent that the Administrative Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Administrative Borrower to do so), (y) the Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties, as applicable, against any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 11.06(d) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (z) the Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties, as applicable, against any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, in each case, that are payable or paid by or asserted against the Administrative Agent or a Loan Party in connection with any Loan Document, and all related losses, claims, liabilities, penalties, interest and expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender or any L/C Issuer by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender and each L/C Issuer hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, under this Agreement or any other Loan Document against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this clause (ii).
(d)    Evidence of Payments.

(e)    Status of Lenders; Tax Documentation. Any Lender to which interest may be paid free of withholding Tax due to such Lender falling within paragraph (b) of the definition of an Irish Qualifying Lender shall, following a request from a Borrower, (x) provide details of its name, address and country of tax residence to such Borrower to enable it to comply with its reporting obligations under Section 891A of the TCA and (y) provide the Irish Borrower with any correct, complete and accurate information that may be required for the Irish Borrower to comply with its obligations under Section 891E of the TCA and any Recipient that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall (x) to the extent required under applicable Law, apply for such exemption or reduction with (and obtain any related clearances or documentation from) the applicable taxing authorities and (y) deliver to the Administrative Borrower and to the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by applicable Laws or reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition:

- 110 -




(i)    each Recipient shall deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent such other documentation or information prescribed by applicable laws or reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Recipient is subject to withholding or information reporting requirements under applicable law.
(ii)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
(A)    any Recipient that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent) on or prior to the date on which such Recipient becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 (or any successor forms) certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal withholding and backup withholding tax; and
(B)    any Recipient that is not a U.S. Person shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent) on or prior to the date on which such Recipient becomes a party to this Agreement and on or before the date, if any, a Lender changes its Lending Office (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

(C)    any Recipient that is not a U.S. Person shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Recipient becomes a party to this Agreement and on or before the date, if any, a Lender changes its Lending Office (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable: law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
(D)    if a payment made to a Recipient under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Recipient were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Recipient shall deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Recipient has complied with such Recipient’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for the purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
(iii)    Each Recipient agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered pursuant to this Section 3.01 expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so

- 112 -




(iv)    Each Recipient to which interest is payable by an Irish Borrower:
shall (x) prior to it becoming party to this Agreement and (y) within ten (10) Business Days after the request of the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent, confirm in writing to the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, such Person is:
(I)    not an Irish Qualifying Lender;
(II)    an Irish Qualifying Lender (other than a Treaty Lender); or
(III)    a Treaty Lender.
As provided in clause (iii) above, each Recipient agrees that if any certification previously delivered pursuant to this Section 3.01(e)(iv) expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such certification.
(f)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. Unless required by applicable Laws, at no time shall the Administrative Agent have any obligation to file for or otherwise pursue on behalf of a Lender or any L/C Issuer, or have any obligation to pay to any Lender or any L/C Issuer, any refund of Taxes withheld or deducted from funds paid for the account of such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be. If any Recipient determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund (including a refund applied as a credit against Taxes due) of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Administrative Borrower or a another Loan Party, as the case may be, or with respect to which the Administrative Borrower or such other Loan Party, as the case may be, has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 3.01, it shall promptly pay to the Administrative Borrower or such other Loan Party, as the case may be, an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Administrative Borrower or such other Loan Party, as the case may be, under this Section 3.01 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) and net of any loss or gain realized in the conversion of such funds from or to another currency incurred by such Recipient, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that Administrative Borrower, upon the request of the Recipient, agrees to repay (or cause the applicable Loan Party to repay) the amount paid over to Administrative Borrower or any other Loan Party, as the case may be, (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Recipient in the event the Recipient is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this subsection, in no event will the applicable Recipient be required to pay any amount to any Loan Party pursuant to this subsection the payment of which would place the Recipient in a less favorable net after-Tax position than such Recipient would have been in if the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This subsection shall not be construed to require the Recipient to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes that it deems confidential) to any Loan Party or any other Person.

- 113 -




(g)    Mitigation. Without limiting the obligations of any Lender or L/C Issuer under Section 3.06, if the Administrative Borrower or any other Loan Party shall be required pursuant to this Section 3.01 to pay any additional amount to, or indemnify, any Recipient, such Recipient shall use reasonable efforts to avoid or minimize any amounts which might otherwise be payable pursuant to this Section 3.01, provided, however, such efforts shall not, in the sole good faith determination of such Recipient, (A) result in any unreimbursed additional costs, expenses or risks, (B) require such Recipient to disclose any confidential information, (C) require such Recipient to take any action that is inconsistent with its policies and procedures, or (D) be otherwise disadvantageous to it.
(h)    FATCA. For purposes of determining withholding Taxes imposed under FATCA, from and after the effective date of this Agreement, the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent may treat (and the Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to treat) this Agreement as not qualifying as a “grandfathered obligation” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1471-2(b)(2)(i).
3.02    Illegality. If any Lender determines that any Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its applicable Lending Office to perform any of its obligations hereunder or make, maintain, fund or charge interest with respect to any Credit Extension, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, Dollars in the applicable offshore interbank market for any applicable currency, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Administrative Borrower through the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to make, maintain, fund or charge interest with respect to any such Credit Extension or to make or continue Eurodollar Rate Loans in the affected currency or currencies or, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans in Dollars, to convert such Eurodollar Rate Loans to Base Rate Loans to Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended, and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining Base Rate Loans the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate, the interest rate on which Base Rate Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (x) the applicable Borrower shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable and such Loans are denominated in Dollars, convert all Eurodollar Rate Loans of such Lender to Base Rate Loans (the interest rate on which Base Rate Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loans and (y) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Eurodollar Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine

- 114 -




or charge interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrowers shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.
3.03    Inability to Determine Rates. If in connection with any request for a Eurodollar Rate Loan or a conversion to or continuation thereof, (a) (i) the Administrative Agent determines that deposits (whether in Dollars or an Alternative Currency) are not being offered to banks in the applicable offshore interbank market for such currency for the applicable amount and Interest Period of such Eurodollar Rate Loan, or (ii) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan (whether denominated in Dollars or an Alternative Currency) or in connection with an existing or proposed Base Rate Loan, (in each case with respect to clause (a) above, “Impacted Loans”), or (b) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders determine that for any reason the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Eurodollar Rate Loan, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Administrative Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain Eurodollar Rate Loans in the affected currency or currencies shall be suspended, (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or Interest Periods), and (y) in the event of a determination described in the preceding sentence with respect to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate, the utilization of the Eurodollar Rate component in determining the Base Rate shall be suspended, in each case until the Administrative Agent (upon the instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice. Upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans in the affected currency or currencies (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans in the amount specified therein.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Administrative Agent has made the determination described in this Section 3.03, the Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Administrative Borrower and the affected Lenders, may establish an alternative interest rate for the Impacted Loans, in which case, such alternative rate of interest shall apply with respect to the Impacted Loans until (1) the Administrative Agent revokes the notice delivered with respect to the Impacted Loans under clause (a) of the first sentence of this Section 3.03, (2) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower that such alternative interest rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding the Impacted Loans, or (3) any Lender determines that any applicable Law has made it unlawful, or that any applicable Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to such alternative rate of interest or to determine or charge interest rates based upon such rate or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to do any of the foregoing and provides the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower written notice thereof.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Administrative Borrower or Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the

- 115 -




case of the Required Lenders, a copy to the Administrative Borrower) that the Administrative Borrower or Required Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that:
(i)    adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for any requested Interest Period, including, without limitation, because the LIBOR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or
(ii)    the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR or the LIBOR Screen Rate shall no longer be made available, or used for determining the interest rate of loans (such specific date, the “Scheduled Unavailability Date”), or
(iii)    syndicated loans currently being executed, or that include language similar to that contained in this Section, are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace LIBOR,
then, reasonably promptly after such determination by the Administrative Agent or receipt by the Administrative Agent of such notice, as applicable, the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Borrower may amend this Agreement to replace LIBOR with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein) (any such proposed rate, a “LIBOR Successor Rate”), together with any proposed LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes and any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. (New York time) on the fifth Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Administrative Borrower unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Required Lenders do not accept such amendment.
If no LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined and the circumstances under clause (i) above exist or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred (as applicable), the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Administrative Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or Interest Periods), and (y) the Eurodollar Rate component shall no longer be utilized in determining the Base Rate. Upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans (subject to the foregoing clause (y)) in the amount specified therein.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of LIBOR Successor Rate shall provide that in no event shall such LIBOR Successor Rate be less than zero for purposes of this Agreement.
3.04    Increased Costs; Reserves on Eurodollar Rate Loans. (a) Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law occurring after the date that such Lender or L/C Issuer first became a Lender or L/C Issuer, as applicable shall:

- 116 -




(i)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement contemplated by Section 3.04(e) other than as set forth below) or any L/C Issuer;
(ii)    subject any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clause (a) and clauses (c) through (e) of Excluded Taxes, (C) Connection Income Taxes or (D) Other Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or
(iii)    impose on any Lender or any L/C Issuer or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Eurodollar Rate Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein;
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan), or to increase the cost to such Lender or such L/C Issuer of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or such L/C Issuer hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, upon request of such Lender or such L/C Issuer, the Administrative Borrower will pay (or shall cause the applicable Loan Party to pay), not in duplication of amounts payable under Section 3.01, to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(b)    Capital Requirements. If any Lender or any L/C Issuer determines that any Change in Law occurring after the date that such Lender or L/C Issuer first became a Lender or L/C Issuer, as applicable, affecting such Lender or such L/C Issuer or any Lending Office of such Lender or such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swing Line Loans held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by an L/C Issuer, to a level below that which such Lender or such L/C Issuer or such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Borrowers will pay to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such L/C Issuer or such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c)    Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of a Lender or an L/C Issuer setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such L/C Issuer or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in subsection (a) or (b) of this Section and delivered to

- 117 -




the Administrative Borrower shall include a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating such amount or amounts and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrowers shall pay such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
(d)    Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or any L/C Issuer to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.04 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s right to demand such compensation, provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an L/C Issuer pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than six months prior to the date that such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, notifies the Administrative Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or such L/C Issuer’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the six-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
(e)    Additional Reserve Requirements. The Borrowers shall pay to each Lender, (i) as long as such Lender shall be required to maintain reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including Eurocurrency funds or deposits (currently known as “Eurocurrency liabilities”), additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Eurodollar Rate Loan equal to the actual costs of such reserves allocated to such Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive) and (ii) as long as such Lender shall be required to comply with any reserve ratio requirement or analogous requirement of any other central banking or financial regulatory authority imposed in respect of the maintenance of the Commitments or the funding of the Eurodollar Rate Loans, such additional costs (expressed as a percentage per annum and rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest five decimal places) equal to the actual costs allocated to such Commitment or Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive), which in each case shall be due and payable on each date on which interest is payable on such Loan, provided the Administrative Borrower shall have received at least 10 days’ prior notice (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of such additional interest or costs from such Lender, together with a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Lender under this Section 3.04(e). If a Lender fails to give notice 10 days prior to the relevant Interest Payment Date, such additional interest or costs shall be due and payable 10 days from receipt of such notice.
3.05    Compensation for Losses. Upon demand of any Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) from time to time, which demand shall include a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating amounts owed to such Lender pursuant to this Section 3.05, from time to time, the Administrative Borrower (with respect to any Borrowings made by the Administrative Borrower) and each of the Designated Borrowers (with respect to any Borrowings made by such Designated Borrowers) shall promptly compensate such Lender for and hold such Lender harmless from any loss, cost or expense actually incurred, without duplication of any amounts to which a Lender is otherwise entitled pursuant to the other provisions of this Article III, by it as a result of:

- 118 -




(a)    any continuation, conversion, payment or prepayment of any applicable Loan other than a Base Rate Loan on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period for such Loan (whether voluntary, mandatory, automatic, by reason of acceleration, or otherwise);
(b)    any failure by any such Borrower (for a reason other than the failure of such Lender to make a Loan) to prepay, borrow, continue or convert any Loan other than a Base Rate Loan on the date or in the amount notified by the applicable Borrower (or any other Borrower);
(c)    any failure by any Borrower to make payment of any Loan or drawing under any Letter of Credit (or interest due thereon) denominated in an Alternative Currency on its scheduled due date or any payment thereof in a different currency; or
(d)    any assignment of a Eurodollar Rate Loan on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period therefor as a result of a request by the Administrative Borrower pursuant to Section 11.13;
including any loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain such Loan or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained or from the performance of any foreign exchange contract (but excluding any loss of anticipated profit). The applicable Borrower shall also pay any customary administrative fees charged by such Lender in connection with the foregoing.
For purposes of calculating amounts payable by a Borrower to the Lenders under this Section 3.05, each Lender shall be deemed to have funded each Eurodollar Rate Loan made by it at the Eurodollar Rate for such Loan by a matching deposit or other borrowing in the offshore interbank market for such currency for a comparable amount and for a comparable period, whether or not such Eurodollar Rate Loan was in fact so funded.
Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, each of the undersigned Lenders, by execution of this Agreement, hereby waives reimbursement of any loss, cost or expense actually incurred by any such Person as a result of the payment or prepayment of any applicable Loan (including any Existing Term Loans) on the Closing Date (to the extent occurring on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period for such Loan) in connection with the Transactions occurring on the Closing Date.
3.06    Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) Designation of a Different Lending Office. Each Lender may make any Credit Extension to each Borrower through any Lending Office, provided that the exercise of this option shall not affect the obligation of such Borrower to repay the Credit Extension in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 3.04, or has invoked the provisions of Section 3.02, or requires the Borrowers to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender, any L/C Issuer, or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender or any L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 3.01, or if any Lender gives a notice pursuant to Section 3.02, then at the request of the Administrative Borrower such Lender or such L/C Issuer shall, as applicable, use reasonable efforts to designate a different Lending Office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender or such L/C Issuer, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce

- 119 -




amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.01 or 3.04, as the case may be, in the future, or eliminate the need for the notice pursuant to Section 3.02, as applicable, and (ii) in each case, would not subject such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be. The Borrowers hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender or any L/C Issuer in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(a)    Replacement of Lenders. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 3.04, or if the Borrowers are required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 3.01 and, in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different lending office in accordance with Section 3.06(a), the Borrowers may replace such Lender in accordance with Section 11.13.
3.07    Survival. All of the obligations of the Loan Parties under this Article III shall survive termination of the Aggregate Commitments, repayment of all other Obligations hereunder, and resignation of the Administrative Agent.

ARTICLE V.
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Each Borrower represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders that:
5.01    Existence, Qualification and Power.

(c)    With respect to each scheme or arrangement mandated by a government other than the United States (a “Foreign Government Scheme or Arrangement”) and with respect to any Pension Plan maintained or sponsored by any Loan Party or any Restricted Subsidiary of any Loan Party that is not subject to United States law (a “Foreign Plan”), except as would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Change:
