(b)     All pro forma computations required to be made hereunder giving effect to any Material Acquisition, Material Disposition or other transaction shall be calculated after giving pro forma effect thereto as if such transaction had occurred on the first day of the Computation Period ending with the most recent Fiscal Quarter for which financial statements shall have been delivered pursuant to Section 5.01(a) or 5.01(b) (or, prior to the delivery of any such financial statements, ending with the last Fiscal Quarter included in the financial statements referred to in Section 3.04), and, to the extent applicable, to the historical earnings and cash flows associated with the assets acquired or disposed of and any related incurrence or reduction of Indebtedness, all in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act.

(a) The Administrative Agent shall determine the US Dollar Equivalent of any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency at the first day of the initial Interest Period therefor and as of the end of such initial Interest Period and each subsequent Interest Period therefor, in each case using the Exchange Rate for such currency in relation to US Dollars in effect on the date of determination, and each such amount shall, except as provided in the penultimate sentence of this Section, be the US Dollar Equivalent of such Borrowing until the next required calculation thereof pursuant to this sentence. The Administrative Agent shall determine the US Dollar Equivalent of any Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency (other than US Dollars) on the date such Letter of Credit is issued and as of the last Business Day of each calendar month thereafter, in each case using the Exchange Rate for such LC Currency in relation to US Dollars in effect on the date of determination, and each such amount shall, except as provided in the penultimate sentence of this Section, be the US Dollar Equivalent of such Letter of Credit until the next required calculation thereof pursuant to this sentence; provided that the Administrative Agent shall also determine the US Dollar Equivalent of any Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency other than US Dollars as provided in Section 2.20(f) and 2.20(l). The Administrative Agent may also determine the US Dollar Equivalent of any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency or any Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency (other than US Dollars) as of such other dates as the Administrative Agent shall select in its discretion, in each case using the Exchange Rate in effect on the date of determination, and each such amount shall be the US Dollar Equivalent of such Borrowing or such Letter of Credit until the next calculation thereof pursuant to this Section. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Company and the Revolving Lenders of each determination of the US Dollar Equivalent of each Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency and each Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency other than US Dollars.

50
Agreement at the time of, or at any time following, such transaction and (B) in the case of any Indebtedness outstanding under any clause of Section 6.01 or secured under any clause of Section 6.02 that contains a limitation expressed in US Dollars and that, as a result of changes in exchange rates, is so exceeded, such Indebtedness will be permitted to be refinanced notwithstanding that, after giving effect to such refinancing, such excess shall continue.

SECTION 1.06.   Effectuation of Transactions.  All references herein to the Company and the Subsidiaries on the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date shall be deemed to be references to such Persons, and all the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be deemed, on the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date, to be made, in each case, after giving effect to the GET Internal Reorganization, the GET SpinCo Transfer, the GET Direct Sale, the GET Distribution, the GET Acquisition (including the GET Merger) and the other Transactions to occur on the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date, unless the context otherwise expressly requires.

SECTION 1.07.   Most Favored Nation Provision. In the event any agreement or instrument evidencing, governing the rights of the holders of or otherwise relating to any GET Acquisition Indebtedness shall contain (a) any restrictive or financial covenant or any event of default that is either more restrictive (or more favorable to the holders of such GET Acquisition Indebtedness) than the corresponding restrictive or financial covenant or event of default set forth in this Agreement or is not comparable to any restrictive or financial covenant or event of default set forth in this Agreement or (b) any requirement that any Subsidiary of the Company guarantee any obligations of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in respect of such GET Acquisition Indebtedness that is more favorable to the holders of such GET Acquisition Indebtedness than the requirements with respect to the Guarantees to be provided by the Subsidiary Guarantors set forth herein, then, in each case, this Agreement shall automatically be deemed to have been amended to incorporate such restrictive or financial covenant or event of default or such requirement, mutatis mutandis, as if set forth fully herein, without any further action required on the part of any Person. The Company shall give prompt written notice to the Administrative Agent of the effectiveness of any such indenture or other agreement or instrument, providing to the Administrative Agent true and complete copies thereof, and shall execute any and all further documents and agreements, including amendments hereto, and take (and, if applicable, cause its Subsidiaries to take) all such further actions, as shall be reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent to give effect to the provisions of this paragraph. Failure by the Company or any Subsidiary to observe or perform any such incorporated restrictive or financial covenant shall constitute an Event of Default under Section 7.01(c)(i).

SECTION 1.08.  Divisions. For all purposes under the Loan Documents, in connection with any division or plan of division under Delaware law (or any comparable event under a different jurisdiction’s laws): (a) if any asset, right, obligation or liability of any Person becomes the asset, right, obligation or liability of a different Person, then it shall be deemed to have been transferred from


51
the original Person to the subsequent Person, and (b) if any new Person comes into existence, such new Person shall be deemed to have been organized and acquired on the first date of its existence by the holders of its equity interests at such time.

(a) Each Loan (other than a Swingline Loan) shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Loans of the same Class, Type and currency made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Commitments of the applicable Class.

Borrowings of more than one Type and Class may be outstanding at the same time; provided that there shall not at any time be more than a total of 12 (or such greater number as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent) LIBOR Borrowings and CDOR Borrowings outstanding.

To request a Revolving Borrowing or Term Borrowing, the applicable Borrower (or the Company on its behalf) shall submit a Borrowing Request, signed by its Senior Officer, to the Administrative Agent (a) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in US Dollars, not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, three Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing (or, in the case of any such LIBOR Borrowing to occur on the Effective Date or any LIBOR Term Borrowing, such shorter period of time as may be agreed to in writing by the Administrative Agent), (b) in the case of LIBOR Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency or a CDOR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, four Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing (or, in the case of any such Borrowing to occur on the Effective Date, such shorter period of time as may be agreed to in writing by the Administrative Agent) or (c) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, on the day of the proposed Borrowing. Each such Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable (except that the Borrowing Request for (x) Loans to be borrowed on the Effective Date may be conditioned on the occurrence of the Effective Date and (y) the Delayed Draw Term Loans may be conditioned on the consummation of the GET Acquisition) and shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:

(i)     the name of the applicable Borrower;

(ii)    whether the requested Borrowing is to be a Term Borrowing (specifying the Class thereof) or a Revolving Borrowing;

53
(v)    the Type of such Borrowing;

(vi)   in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing, the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”; an

If no currency is specified with respect to any requested LIBOR Borrowing, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected US Dollars. If no election as to the Type of Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be (A) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in US Dollars, an ABR Borrowing, (B) in the case of Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency (other than Canadian Dollars), a LIBOR Borrowing and (C) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in Canadian Dollars, a CDOR Borrowing. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested LIBOR Borrowing or CDOR Borrowing, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the applicable Class of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.

SECTION 2.04.   Funding of Borrowings. (a) Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds in the applicable currency by (i) in the case of Revolving Loans, 12:00 p.m., Local Time (or, in the case of ABR Revolving Loans, such later time as shall be two hours after the delivery by or on behalf of the applicable Borrower of a Borrowing Request therefor in accordance with Section 2.03), and (ii) in the case of Term Loans, 10:00 a.m., Local Time (or, in the case of ABR Term Loans, such later time as shall be two hours after the delivery by the Company of a Borrowing Request therefor in accordance with Section 2.03), in each case, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders; provided that Swingline Loans shall be made as provided in Section 2.21. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the applicable Borrower by promptly remitting the amounts so received, in like funds, to the account designated in the applicable Borrowing Request; provided that ABR Revolving Loans made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.20(f) shall be remitted by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Issuing Bank specified in the applicable Borrowing Request.

(b)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such


54
date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section and may, in reliance on 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 such Borrower severally agree, without duplication, to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, (A) if denominated in US Dollars, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation and (B) if denominated in an Alternative Currency, the greater of the applicable Alternative Currency Overnight Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, or (ii) in the case of a payment to be made by such Borrower, (A) if denominated in US Dollars, the interest rate applicable to ABR Loans of the applicable Class and (B) if denominated in an Alternative Currency, the interest rate applicable to the subject Loan pursuant hereto. If such 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 such Borrower the amount of such interest paid by such Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any such payment by such Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim such Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.

SECTION 2.05.   Interest Elections. (a) Each Revolving Borrowing and Term Borrowing initially shall be of the Type and, in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in the applicable Borrowing Request or as otherwise provided in Section 2.03. Thereafter, the applicable Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing (if such Borrowing is denominated in US Dollars) to a Borrowing of a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section. A Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, no Borrower shall be permitted to change the currency of any Borrowing or elect an Interest Period for a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing that does not comply with Section 2.02(d). This Section shall not apply to Swingline Loans, which may not be converted or continued.

(b)    To make an election pursuant to this Section, the applicable Borrower (or the Company on its behalf) shall submit an Interest Election Request, signed by its Senior Officer, to the Administrative Agent by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if such Borrower were requesting a Revolving Borrowing of the Type and in the currency resulting from such election to be made on the


55
effective date of such election. Each such Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:

(i)     the name of the applicable Borrower, the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);

(ii)    the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;

(iii)   the Type of the resulting Borrowing; and

(iv)   if the resulting Borrowing is to be a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”.

If any such Interest Election Request requests a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.

(c)     Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the applicable Class of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.

(d)     If the applicable Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period (i) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in US Dollars, such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Revolving Borrowing and (ii) in the case of any other LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be continued as a Borrowing of the applicable Type for an Interest Period of one month.

(e)     Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default under Section 7.01(i) has occurred and is continuing with respect to any Borrower, or if any other Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of a Majority in Interest of Lenders of any Class, has notified the Company of the election to give effect to this sentence on account of such other Event of Default, then, in each such case, so long as such Event of Default is continuing, (i) no outstanding Borrowing of such Class denominated in US Dollars may be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing, (ii) unless repaid, each LIBOR Borrowing of such Class denominated in US Dollars shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto and (iii) unless repaid, each


56
LIBOR Borrowing of such Class denominated in an Alternative Currency and each CDOR Borrowing of such Class shall be continued as a LIBOR Borrowing or CDOR Borrowing, as applicable, with an Interest Period of one month’s duration.

(c)     The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments under paragraph (b) of this Section at least three Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the applicable Class of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Company pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination or reduction of the Commitments of any Class under paragraph (b) of this Section may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of one or more events specified therein, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied. Any termination or reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be permanent. Each reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments of such Class.

SECTION 2.07.   Repayment of Loans; Amortization of Term Loans;  Evidence of Debt.

(c)      The Company shall repay Delayed Draw Term Loans on the first day of each of Fiscal Quarter, beginning with the first day of the first Fiscal Quarter commencing at least three months after the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date and ending with the last such day to occur prior to the Delayed Draw Term Maturity Date, in an aggregate principal amount for each such date equal to 2.50% of the aggregate principal amount of the Delayed Draw Term Loans outstanding on the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date (as such amount may be adjusted pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section).

(d)      Any prepayment of a Term Borrowing of any Class shall be applied to reduce the subsequent scheduled repayments of the Term Borrowings of such Class to be made pursuant to this Section in the manner specified by the Company in the notice of prepayment relating thereto (or, if no such manner is specified in such notice, in direct order of maturity). Prior to any repayment of any Term Borrowings of any Class under this Section, the Company shall select the Borrowing or Borrowings of the applicable Class to be repaid and shall notify the Administrative Agent by telephone (promptly confirmed in writing) of such selection not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, three Business Days before the scheduled date of such repayment.

notice of prepayment may be revoked (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date of prepayment) if such notice of termination or reduction is revoked in accordance with Section 2.06 and (B) a notice of optional prepayment of Term Borrowings may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of one or more events specified therein, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date of prepayment) if such condition is not satisfied. Promptly following receipt of any such notice (other than a notice relating solely to Swingline Loans), the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the applicable Class of the contents thereof. Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Borrowing of the same Type and currency as provided in Section 2.02 (or, if less, the outstanding principal amount of the Loans). Each prepayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in the prepaid Borrowing. Prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.10.

SECTION 2.09.   Fees. (a) The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, in US Dollars, for the account of each Revolving Lender a commitment fee (the “Revolving Commitment Fee”), which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate on the average daily unused amount of the Revolving Commitment of such Lender during the period from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the date on which such Revolving Commitment terminates. Revolving Commitment Fees accrued through and including the last day of March, June, September and December of each year shall be made payable in arrears on the first Business Day after such last day, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Effective Date, and accrued Revolving Commitment Fees shall also be payable in arrears on the date on which the Revolving Commitments terminate. All Revolving Commitment Fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). For purposes of computing Revolving Commitment Fees, (i) a Revolving Commitment of a Revolving Lender (other than PNC) shall be deemed to be used to the extent of the outstanding Revolving Loans and LC Exposure of such Revolving Lender (and the Swingline Exposure of such Revolving Lender shall be disregarded for such purpose) and (ii) the Revolving Commitment of PNC shall be deemed to be used to the extent of the outstanding Revolving Loans and LC Exposure of PNC and the outstanding Swingline Loans (except any portion of Swingline Loans that are subject to participations purchased by the Revolving Lenders pursuant to Section 2.22(c)).

(b)      The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, in US Dollars, for the account of each Delayed Draw Term Lender a ticking fee (the “Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fee”), which shall accrue at 0.175% per annum on the daily amount of the Delayed Draw Term Commitment of such Lender during the period (the “Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fee Accrual Period”) that (i) commences on the date that is 60 days after the Signing Date and (ii) ends on the earlier of (A) the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date and (B) the date on which the Delayed Draw Term Commitment of such Lender terminates. Accrued Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fees shall be payable in arrears on the last day of the Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fee Accrual Period. All Delayed Draw Term


60
Ticking Fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).

(c)      The Company agrees to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent, in US Dollars, for the account of each Revolving Lender a participation fee with respect to its participations in Letters of Credit, which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate used to determine the interest rate applicable to LIBOR Revolving Loans on the average daily amount of such Revolving Lender’s LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the period from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the later of the date on which such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitment terminates and the date on which such Revolving Lender ceases to have any LC Exposure, and (ii) to each Issuing Bank a fronting fee, in US Dollars, which shall accrue at 0.125% per annum on the average daily amount of the LC Exposure attributable to Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the period from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the later of the date of termination of the Revolving Commitments and the date on which there ceases to be any such LC Exposure, as well as such Issuing Bank’s standard fees with respect to the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or processing of drawings thereunder. Participation fees and fronting fees accrued through and including the last day of March, June, September and December of each year shall be payable in arrears on the first Business Day after such last day following such day, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Effective Date; provided that all such fees shall be payable on the date on which the Revolving Commitments terminate and any such fees accruing after the date on which the Revolving Commitments terminate shall be payable on demand. Any other fees payable to an Issuing Bank pursuant to this paragraph shall be payable within 15 days after demand. All participation fees and fronting fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).

(d)      The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Company and the Administrative Agent.

(e)      All fees payable hereunder shall be paid on the dates due, in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent (or to an Issuing Bank, in the case of fees payable to it) for distribution, in the case of the Revolving Commitment Fee, the Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fee and the Letter of Credit participation fees, to the Lenders entitled thereto. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances.

SECTION 2.10.   Interest. (a) The Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing (including each Swingline Loan) shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate.

(b)      The Loans comprising each LIBOR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.


61
(c)      The Loans comprising each CDOR Borrowing shall bear interest at the CDO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.

(d)      Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan or any fee or other amount payable by any Borrower hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of overdue principal of or interest on any Loan, 2.00% per annum plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section, (ii) in the case of overdue fees with respect to any Commitment, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans that are of the same Class as the Class of such Commitment, as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section, or (iii) in the case of any other overdue amount, (A) if such amount is payable in US Dollars, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to ABR Revolving Loans, as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section, and (B) if such amount is payable in any other currency, 2.00% per annum plus the Alternative Currency Overnight Rate plus the Applicable Rate applicable to ABR Revolving Loans as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section.

(e)      Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan and, in the case of a Revolving Loan or a Swingline Loan, upon termination of the Revolving Commitments; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Revolving Loan prior to the end of the Revolving Availability Period), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion or continuation of any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion or continuation. All interest shall be payable in the currency in which the applicable Loan is denominated.

(f)      All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that (i) interest on Borrowings denominated in Sterling or Canadian Dollars and (ii) interest computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or, in the case of clause (ii) above, 366 days in a leap year), and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable Alternate Base Rate, Adjusted LIBO Rate or CDO Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(g)     For purposes of the Interest Act (Canada), (i) whenever any interest or fee under this Agreement is calculated on the basis of a period other than a calendar year, such rate used in such calculation, when expressed as an annual rate, is equivalent to (A) such rate, multiplied by (B) the actual number of days in the calendar year in which the period for which such interest or fee is calculated ends, and divided by (C) the number of days in such period of time, (ii) the principle of deemed reinvestment of interest shall not


62
apply to any interest calculation under this Agreement, and (iii) the rates of interest stipulated in this Agreement are intended to be nominal rates and not effective rates or yields.

SECTION 2.11.    Alternate Rate of Interest. (a) If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a LIBOR Borrowing or a CDOR Borrowing of any Class:

(i)       the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the CDO Rate, as the case may be, for such Interest Period; or

(ii)      the Administrative Agent is advised by a Majority in Interest of the Lenders of such Class that the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the CDO Rate, as the case may be, for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;

then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Company and the Lenders of such Class as promptly as practicable, specifying in reasonable detail the basis for such notice, and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Company and the Lenders of such Class that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (A) in the case of Term Borrowings and Revolving Borrowings denominated in US Dollars, any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any such Borrowing of such Class to, or continuation of any such Borrowing of such Class as, an affected LIBOR Borrowing shall be ineffective, and such Borrowing shall be continued as an ABR Borrowing, (B) any affected LIBOR Revolving Borrowing (if denominated in an Alternative Currency) or CDOR Revolving Borrowing shall be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto and (C) any Borrowing Request for an affected LIBOR Revolving Borrowing or CDOR Revolving Borrowing shall (x) in the case of a Revolving Borrowing denominated in US Dollars, be deemed to be a request for an ABR Borrowing, or (y) in all other cases, be ineffective (and no Revolving Lender shall be obligated to make a Revolving Loan on account thereof).

(b)      If at any time the Administrative Agent determines or is advised by the Required Lenders that they shall have determined that (i) the circumstances set forth in paragraph (a)(i) of this Section have arisen (including because the applicable Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis) and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in paragraph (a)(i) of this Section have not arisen but either (w) the supervisor for the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate has made a public statement that the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate is insolvent (and there is no successor administrator that will continue publication of the applicable Screen Rate), (x) the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the applicable Screen Rate will permanently or indefinitely cease to be published by it (and there is no successor administrator that will continue publication of the applicable Screen Rate), (y) the


63
supervisor for the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the applicable Screen Rate will permanently or indefinitely cease to be published or (z) the supervisor or the administrator of the applicable Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the applicable Screen Rate may no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans denominated in the applicable currency, then the Administrative Agent and the Company shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the applicable Screen Rate for such currency that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention in the United States for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans denominated in the applicable currency at such time, and the Administrative Agent and the Company shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable (it being understood that such amendment shall not reduce the Applicable Rate); provided that if such alternate rate of interest shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for all purposes of this Agreement. Such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five Business Days of the date a copy of such amendment is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that the Required Lenders object to such amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this paragraph (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (ii) above, only to the extent the applicable Screen Rate for such Interest Period is not available or published at such time on a current basis), clauses (A), (B) and (C) of paragraph (a) of this Section shall be applicable.
 
SECTION 2.12.    Increased Costs; Illegality.     (a) If any Change in Law shall:
 
(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 such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate) or any Issuing Bank;
 
(ii)      impose on any Lender or any Issuing Bank or any Relevant Interbank Market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein; or
 
(iii)     subject any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of the term “Excluded Taxes” and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender or other Recipient of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan (or of maintaining


64
its obligation to make any Loan), to increase the cost to such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, from time to time following request of such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient (accompanied by a certificate in accordance with paragraph (e) of this Section), the Company will pay to such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient for such additional costs or expenses incurred or reduction suffered.
 
(b)     If any Lender or any Issuing Bank determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or Issuing Bank or any lending office of such Lender or such Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements has had or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank, to a level below that which such Lender or Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then, from time to time following the request of such Lender or Issuing Bank (accompanied by a certificate in accordance with paragraph (e) of this Section), the Company will pay to such Lender or Issuing Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
 
(c)      If the cost to any Lender of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Revolving Loan or Swingline Loan to (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or the cost to any Lender or any Issuing Bank of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or Swingline Loan issued for the account of or made to any Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or issue any such Letter of Credit or Swingline Loan) is increased (or the amount of any sum received or receivable by any Lender or any Issuing Bank (or its applicable lending office) is reduced) by reason of the fact that such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary is incorporated in, has its principal place of business in, or borrows from a jurisdiction outside the United States of America, then, from time to time following request of such Lender or Issuing Bank (accompanied by a certificate in accordance with paragraph (e) of this Section), the Company will pay to such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Revolving Lender or Issuing Bank or other Recipient for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
 
(d)      Without duplication of any reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the Company will pay to each Revolving Lender (i) as long as such
 

65
Revolving Lender shall be required by a central banking or financial regulatory authority with regulatory authority over such Revolving Lender to maintain reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including funds or deposits obtained in any Relevant Interbank Market, additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each LIBOR Revolving Loan or CDOR Revolving Loan equal to the actual costs of such reserves allocable to such Loan by such Revolving Lender (as determined by such Revolving Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), and (ii) as long as such Revolving 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 LIBOR Revolving Loans or CDOR Revolving 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 Revolving Commitment or Revolving Loan by such Revolving Lender (as determined by such Revolving Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), which in each case shall be due and payable on each date on which interest is payable on such Revolving Loan; provided that the Company shall have received the certificate referred to in paragraph (e) of this Section with respect to such additional interest or costs from such Revolving Lender at least 10 days prior to such date (and, in the event such certificate shall have been delivered after such time, then such additional interest or costs shall be due and payable as set forth in paragraph (e) of this Section).
 
(e)    A certificate of a Lender, Issuing Bank, or other Recipient setting forth the basis for and, in reasonable detail (to the extent practicable), computation of the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender, Issuing Bank, or other Recipient or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a), (b), (c) or (d) of this Section shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Company shall pay such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 30 days after receipt thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, no Lender or Issuing Bank shall demand compensation for any increased or other cost or reduction pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section if it shall not at the time be the general policy or practice of such Lender or Issuing Bank to demand (to the extent it is entitled to do so) such compensation from similarly situated borrowers in similar circumstances under comparable provisions of other credit agreements.
 
(f)     Failure or delay on the part of any Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s, Issuing Bank’s or other Recipient’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Company shall not be required to compensate a Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or expenses incurred or reductions suffered more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender, Issuing Bank or other Recipient, as the case may be, notifies the Company of the Change in Law or other circumstance giving rise to such increased costs or expenses or reductions and of such Lender’s, Issuing Bank’s or other Recipient’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that if the Change in Law or other circumstance giving rise to
 

66
such increased costs, expenses or reductions is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
 
(g)     If any Lender determines that any Change in Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or the applicable lending office of such Lender to make, maintain or fund any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan or to charge interest with respect to any Loan, or to determine or charge interest rates, based upon the LIBO Rate or CDO Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, the applicable currency in the Relevant Interbank Market, then, upon notice thereof by such Lender to the Company and the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to make, maintain or fund any LIBOR Loan (if applicable, in such currency) or CDOR Loan, or to continue any LIBOR Loan (if applicable, in such currency) or CDOR Loan or convert any ABR Loan into a LIBOR Loan, or to charge interest with respect to any Loan, or to determine or charge interest rates, based upon the LIBO Rate or CDO Rate, as the case may be, shall be suspended, and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining ABR Loans the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, the interest rate on ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Company that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (A) the applicable Borrowers shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay LIBOR Loans or CDOR Loans, as the case may be, of such Lender or, if applicable, convert all LIBOR Loans of such Lender to ABR Loans (the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans or CDOR Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans or CDOR Loans and (B) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Alternate Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Adjusted LIBO 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 or charge interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Company shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.
 
(h)     If any Lender determines that any Change in Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or the applicable lending office of such Lender to perform any of its obligations hereunder or under any Loan Document with respect to any Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary, to make, maintain or fund any Loan to any Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary or to charge interest with respect to any Loan to any Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary, or to
 

67
determine or charge interest rates with respect to any credit extension to any Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary, then, upon notice thereof by such Lender to the Company and the Administrative Agent, any obligation of such Lender to make, maintain or fund any such Loan (if applicable, in an affected currency), or to continue any such Loan (if applicable, in an affected currency) or convert any ABR Loan into a LIBOR Loan, or to charge interest with respect to any Loan, or to determine or charge interest rates with respect to any credit extensions, as the case may be, in each case with respect to such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary, shall be suspended (and to the extent required by applicable Law, cancelled). Upon receipt of such notice, the applicable Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay any such Loans of such Lender to such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary or, if applicable, convert all such LIBOR Loans of such Lender to such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary to ABR Loans (the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Loans. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Company shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted. The applicable Borrower shall also take all reasonable actions requested by the Administrative Agent or such Lender to mitigate or avoid such illegality.
 
SECTION 2.13.    Break Funding Payments.       In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert or continue any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (whether or not such notice may be revoked in accordance with the terms hereof), (d) the failure to prepay any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan on a date specified therefor in any notice of prepayment given by the Company (whether or not such notice may be revoked in accordance with the terms hereof) or (e) the assignment of any LIBOR Loan or CDOR Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Company pursuant to Section 2.16, then, in any such event, the Company shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense (but not lost profits) attributable to such event (including, to the extent that any of foregoing Loans are denominated in any Alternative Currency, the loss, cost and expense (but not lost profits) of such Lender attributable to the premature unwinding of any hedging agreement entered into by such Lender in respect to the foreign currency exposure attributable to such Loan), within 30 days following request of such Lender (accompanied by a certificate described below in this Section). Such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate or CDO Rate that would have been applicable to such Loan (but not including the Applicable Rate applicable thereto), for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the
 

68
case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate such Lender would bid if it were to bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in the applicable currency of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the Relevant Interbank Market. A certificate of any Lender delivered to the Company and setting forth the basis for and, in reasonable detail (to the extent practicable), computation of any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall, subject to the proviso in the next following sentence, be conclusive absent manifest error. The Company shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 30 days after receipt thereof.
 
SECTION 2.14.    Taxes. (a) Payments Free of Taxes. All payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) the applicable Lender (or, in the case of any amount received by the Administrative Agent for its own account, the Administrative Agent) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
 
(b)     Payment of Other Taxes by the Loan Parties.     Subject to and in accordance with Section 2.22(d), the Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse the Administrative Agent for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

(c)      Evidence of Payment.  As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.14, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(d)      Indemnification by the Loan Parties. Subject to and in accordance with Section 2.22(d), the Loan Parties shall indemnify each Recipient, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.14) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by
 

69
the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Company by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
(e)       [Reserved].
 
(f)       Status of Lenders. (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Company and the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.14(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
 
(ii)      Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in respect of any Loan to the Company or any Domestic Borrowing Subsidiary:
 
(A)     any Lender that is a US Person shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from US federal backup withholding Tax;
 
(B)     any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally eligible to do so, deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
 
(1)    in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party two executed originals of  IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form
 

70
W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, withholding Taxes pursuant to such tax treaty;
 
(2)    two executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;
 
(3)    in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) two executed originals of a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the applicable Loan Party within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code and that interest payments on the Loans are not effectively connected with the Lender’s conduct of a US trade or business (a “US Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) two executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable; or
 
(4)    to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, two executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, as applicable, a US Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-2 or Exhibit H-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a US Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
 
(C)     any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally eligible to do so, deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Company 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 US federal withholding Taxes, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Company or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
 
(D)     If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to withholding Taxes imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the
 

71
Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Company 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 Company or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Company and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine whether such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
 
(iii)     Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Company and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal ineligibility to do so.
 
(iv)     Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to deliver to the Loan Parties and to any successor Administrative Agent any documentation provided by such Lender to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.14(f).
 
(g)      Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.14 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.14), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 2.14 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph (g) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
 

72
(h)      VAT. (i) All amounts set out or expressed in any Loan Document to be payable by any party to any Loan Document (for the purposes of this paragraph (h), a “party”) to any Recipient that (in whole or in part) constitute the consideration for any supply for VAT purposes shall be deemed to be exclusive of any VAT that is chargeable on such supply. Subject to clause (ii) below, if VAT is or becomes chargeable on any supply made by any Recipient to any party under any Loan Document and such Recipient is required to account to the relevant tax authority for such VAT, such party shall pay to such Recipient (in addition to and at the same time as paying any other consideration for such supply), an amount equal to the amount of such VAT (and such Recipient shall promptly provide an appropriate VAT invoice to such party).
 
(ii)      If VAT is or becomes chargeable on any supply made by any Recipient (the “VAT Supplier”) to any other Recipient (the “VAT Recipient”) under any Loan Document, and any party other than the VAT Recipient (the “VAT Subject Party”) is required by the terms of any Loan Document to pay an amount equal to the consideration for such supply to the VAT Supplier (rather than being required to reimburse or indemnify the VAT Recipient in respect of such consideration):

(A)     to the extent the VAT Supplier is the Person required to account to the relevant tax authority for the VAT, the VAT Subject Party shall also pay to the VAT Supplier (in addition to and at the same time as paying such amount) an amount equal to the amount of such VAT, and the VAT Recipient shall, where this clause (A) applies, promptly pay to the VAT Subject Party an amount equal to any credit or repayment the VAT Recipient receives from the relevant tax authority which the VAT Recipient reasonably determines relates to the VAT chargeable on such supply; and

(B)     to the extent the VAT Recipient is the Person required to account to the relevant tax authority for the VAT, the VAT Subject Party shall promptly, following demand from the VAT Recipient, pay to the VAT Recipient an amount equal to the VAT chargeable on such supply but only to the extent that the VAT Recipient reasonably determines that it is not entitled to credit or repayment from the relevant tax authority in respect of such VAT.
 
(iii)     Where a Loan Document requires any party to reimburse or indemnify any Recipient for any cost or expense, such party shall reimburse or indemnify (as the case may be) such Recipient for the full amount of such cost or expense, including such part thereof as represents VAT, except to the extent that such Recipient reasonably determines that it is entitled to credit or repayment in respect of such VAT from the relevant tax authority.

(iv)     Any reference in this paragraph (h) to any party shall, at any time when such party is treated as a member of a group or unity (or fiscal unity) for VAT purposes, include (where appropriate and unless the context otherwise requires) a reference to the Person that is treated at that time as making the supply,
 

73
or (as appropriate) receiving the supply, under the grouping rules (provided for in Article 11 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC (or as implemented by the relevant member state of the European Union) or any other similar provision in any jurisdiction that is not a member state of the European Union) so that a reference to a party shall be construed as a reference to such party or the relevant group or unity (or fiscal unity) of which such party is a member for VAT purposes at the relevant time or the relevant representative member (or head) of such group or unity (or fiscal unity) at the relevant time (as the case may be).

(v)       In relation to any supply made by a Recipient to any party under any Loan Document, if reasonably requested by such Recipient, such party must promptly provide such Recipient with details of such party’s VAT registration and such other information as is reasonably requested in connection with such Recipient’s VAT reporting requirements in relation to such supply.
 
(i)       For purposes of this Section 2.14, the term “Lender” includes any Issuing Bank and the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.

SECTION 2.15.   Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Setoffs. (a) Each Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder or under any other Loan Document prior to the time required hereunder or under such other Loan Document for such payment (or, if no such time is expressly required, prior to 1:00 p.m., Local Time), on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without any defense, setoff, recoupment or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent to such account as may be specified by the Administrative Agent, except payments to be made directly to any Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender shall be so made and except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14, 10.03 and 10.18 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto and payments pursuant to other Loan Documents shall be made to the Persons specified therein. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment under any Loan Document shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. All payments hereunder of principal or interest in respect of any Loan or LC Disbursement shall, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, be made in the currency of such Loan or LC Disbursement; all other payments hereunder and under each other Loan Document shall be made in US Dollars. Any payment required to be made by the Administrative Agent hereunder shall be deemed to have been made by the time required if the Administrative Agent shall, at or before such time, have taken the necessary steps to make such payment in accordance with the regulations or operating procedures of the clearing or settlement system used by the Administrative Agent to make such payment.
 

74
(b)       If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, unreimbursed LC Disbursements, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, toward payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, toward payment of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due to such parties.

(c)       If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans and accrued interest thereon than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall notify the Administrative Agent of such fact and shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the amount of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amounts of principal of and accrued interest on their Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans; provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by the Borrowers pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (for the avoidance of doubt, as in effect from time to time) or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans to any Person that is an Eligible Assignee (as such term is defined herein from time to time). Each Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Borrowers rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Borrowers in the amount of such participation.
 
(d)      Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or the Issuing Banks hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the applicable Lenders or Issuing Banks, as the case may be, the amount due. In such event, if such Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the applicable Lenders or Issuing Banks, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or such Issuing Bank with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the
 

75
Administrative Agent at (i) if such amount is denominated in US Dollars, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation and (ii) if such amount is denominated in any other currency, the greater of the applicable Alternative Currency Overnight Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
 
(e)       If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it hereunder to or for the account of the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender, then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations in respect of such payment until all such unsatisfied obligations have been discharged or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender pursuant to Section 2.04(b), 2.14(e), 2.15(d), 2.20(d), 2.20(f), 2.21(c) or 10.03(c), in each case in such order as shall be determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.
 
(f)       In the event that any financial statements delivered under Section 5.01(a) or 5.01(b), or any Compliance Certificate delivered under Section 5.01(c), shall prove to have been inaccurate, and such inaccuracy shall have resulted in the payment of any interest or fees at rates lower than those that were in fact applicable for any period (based on the actual Leverage Ratio), then, if such inaccuracy is discovered prior to the termination of the Commitments and the repayment in full of the principal of all Loans and the reduction of the LC Exposure to zero, the Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to the Lenders (or former Lenders) as their interests may appear, the accrued interest or fees that should have been paid but were not paid as a result of such misstatement.
 
SECTION 2.16.   Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.12, or if any Loan Party is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or to any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14 (other than additional amounts arising from VAT that are recoverable from any Governmental Authority), then such Lender shall (at the request of the Company) use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign and delegate its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment and delegation (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.12 or 2.14, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Company hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment and delegation within 30 days following the written request of such Lender (accompanied by reasonable back-up documentation relating thereto).
 

76
(b)     If (i)  any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.12, is unable to make LIBOR Loans or CDOR Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(g) or is unable to make Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(h), (ii) any Loan Party is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14 (other than additional amounts arising from VAT that are recoverable from any Governmental Authority), (iii) any Lender has become a Defaulting Lender or (iv) any Lender has failed to consent to a proposed amendment, waiver, discharge or termination that under Section 10.02 requires the consent of all the Lenders (or all the affected Lenders or all the Lenders of the affected Class) and with respect to which the Required Lenders (or, in circumstances where Section 10.02 does not require the consent of the Required Lenders, a Majority in Interest of the Lenders of the affected Class) shall have granted their consent, then the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 10.04), all its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 2.12 or 2.14) and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (or, in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from a failure to provide a consent, all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as a Lender of a particular Class) to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment and delegation); provided that (A) the Company shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and, in circumstances where its consent would be required under Section 10.04, each Issuing Bank and the Swingline Lender, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, (B) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and, if applicable, participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder (if applicable, in each case only to the extent such amounts relate to its interest as a Lender of a particular Class) from the assignee (in the case of such principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Company (in the case of all other amounts), (C) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.12 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.14, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments, (D) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law and (E) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from the failure to provide a consent, the assignee shall have given such consent and, as a result of such assignment and delegation and any contemporaneous assignments and delegations and consents, the applicable amendment, waiver, discharge or termination can be effected. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver or consent by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation have ceased to apply. Each party hereto agrees that an assignment and delegation required pursuant to this paragraph may be effected pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption executed by the Company, the Administrative Agent and the assignee and that the Lender required to make such assignment and delegation need not be a party thereto.


77
SECTION 2.17.   Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
 
(a)       the Revolving Commitment Fees and the Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fees shall cease to accrue on the unused amount of the Revolving Commitment or on the Delayed Draw Term Commitment, as the case may be, of such Defaulting Lender;
 
(b)       the Revolving Commitment, the Revolving Exposure, the Term Commitment and the Term Loans of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether the Required Lenders or any other requisite Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder or under any other Loan Document (including any consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification pursuant to Section 10.02); provided that any amendment, waiver or other modification requiring the consent of all Lenders or all Lenders affected thereby shall, except as otherwise provided in Section 10.02, require the consent of such Defaulting Lender in accordance with the terms hereof;

(c)       if any Swingline Exposure or LC Exposure exists at the time any Revolving Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then:
 
(i)       the Swingline Exposure (other than any portion thereof with respect to which such Defaulting Lender shall have funded its participation as contemplated by Section 2.21(c)) and LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender (other than any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements with respect to which such Defaulting Lender shall have funded its participation as contemplated by Sections 2.20(d) and 2.20(f)) shall be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages but only to the extent that the sum of all Non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders’ Revolving Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Swingline Exposure (excluding the portion thereof referred to above) and LC Exposure (excluding the portion thereof referred to above) does not exceed the sum of all Non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders’ Revolving Commitments;
 
(ii)      if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, each Borrower shall within one Business Day following written notice by the Administrative Agent (A) first, prepay the portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Swingline Exposure attributable to Swingline Loans made to such Borrower (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical in such clause (i)) that has not been reallocated and (B) second, cash collateralize for the benefit of the Issuing Banks the portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure attributable to Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower (other than any portion thereof referred to in the parenthetical in such clause (i)) that has not been reallocated as set forth in such clause in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.20(n) for so long as such LC Exposure is outstanding;
 

78
(iii)      if the Borrowers cash collateralize any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Borrowers shall not be required to pay participation fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.09(c) with respect to such portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure for so long as such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure is cash collateralized;
 
(iv)      if any portion of the LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender is reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above, then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Sections 2.09(a) and 2.09(c) shall be adjusted to give effect to such reallocation; and
 
(v)       if all or any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure that is subject to reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above is neither reallocated nor cash collateralized pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of any Issuing Bank or any other Lender hereunder, all participation fees payable under Section 2.09(c) with respect to such portion of its LC Exposure shall be payable to the Issuing Banks (and allocated among them ratably based on the amount of such portion of the LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender attributable to Letters of Credit issued by each Issuing Bank) until and to the extent that such LC Exposure is reallocated and/or cash collateralized; and

(d)       so long as such Lender is a Defaulting  Lender, the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loan and no Issuing Bank shall be required to issue, amend, renew or extend any Letter of Credit, unless, in each case, it is satisfied that the related exposure and such Defaulting Lender’s then outstanding Swingline Exposure or LC Exposure will be fully covered by the Revolving Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders and/or cash collateral provided by the Borrowers in accordance with clause (c) above, and participating interests in any such funded Swingline Loan or in any such issued, amended, renewed or extended Letter of Credit will be allocated among the Non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders in a manner consistent with clause (c)(i) above (and such Defaulting Lender shall not participate therein).
 
In the event that (x) a Bankruptcy Event with respect to a Lender Parent of a Revolving Lender shall have occurred following the Effective Date and for so long as such Bankruptcy Event shall continue or (y) the Swingline Lender or any Issuing Bank has a good faith belief that any Revolving Lender has defaulted in fulfilling its obligations under one or more other agreements in which such Revolving Lender commits to extend credit, the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loan, and no Issuing Bank shall be required to issue, amend, renew or extend any Letter of Credit, unless, in each case, the Swingline Lender or such Issuing Bank shall have entered into arrangements with the Company and any other applicable Borrower or such Revolving Lender satisfactory to the Swingline Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, to defease any risk to it in respect of such Revolving Lender hereunder.


79
In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Company, the Swingline Lender and each Issuing Bank each agree that a Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Revolving Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then the Swingline Exposure and LC Exposure of the Revolving Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitment and on such date such Revolving Lender shall purchase at par such of the Revolving Loans of the other Revolving Lenders as the Administrative Agent shall determine to be necessary in order for such Revolving Lender to hold such Revolving Loans in accordance with its Applicable Percentage, and such Revolving Lender shall thereupon cease to be a Defaulting Lender (but shall not be entitled to receive any Revolving Commitment Fees accrued during the period when it was a Defaulting Lender, and all amendments, waivers or modifications effected without its consent in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.02 and this Section during such period shall be binding on it).
 
In the event that the Administrative Agent and the Company each agree that a Defaulting Lender that is a Term Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Term Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then on such date such Term Lender shall take such actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be appropriate in connection with such Term Lender ceasing to be a Defaulting Lender, and such Term Lender shall thereupon cease to be a Defaulting Lender (but (x) in the case of a Delayed Draw Term Lender, shall not be entitled to receive any Delayed Draw Term Ticking Fees accrued during the period when it was a Defaulting Lender, and (y) all amendments, waivers or modifications effected without its consent in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.02 and this Section during such period shall be binding on it).

The rights and remedies against, and with respect to, a Defaulting Lender under this Section are in addition to, and cumulative and not in limitation of, all other rights and remedies that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank, the Swingline Lender, any other Lender or any Loan Party may at any time have against, or with respect to, such Defaulting Lender.
 
SECTION 2.18.   Incremental Facilities. (a) The Company may on one or more occasions, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, request (i) the establishment of Incremental Revolving Commitments and/or (ii) the establishment of Incremental Term Commitments; provided that (A) the aggregate amount of all the Incremental Commitments established hereunder shall not exceed US$600,000,000 and (B) no Incremental Commitments may be established until after the earlier of (x) the Delayed Draw Term Funding Date and (y) the Delayed Draw Term Commitment Termination Date. Each such notice shall specify (1) the date on which the Company proposes that the Incremental Revolving Commitments or the Incremental Term Commitments, as applicable, shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than 10 Business Days (or such shorter period as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent) after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent and (2) the amount of the Incremental Revolving Commitments or Incremental Term Commitments, as applicable, being requested (it being agreed that (x) any Lender approached to provide any Incremental Revolving Commitment or Incremental Term Commitment may elect or


80
decline, in its sole discretion, to provide such Incremental Revolving Commitment or Incremental Term Commitment and (y) any Person that the Company proposes to become an Incremental Lender, if such Person is not then a Lender, must be an Eligible Assignee and must be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and, in the case of any proposed Incremental Revolving Lender, each Issuing Bank and the Swingline Lender, in each case not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned and solely to the extent the consent of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or the Swingline Lender, as the case may be, would be required for an assignment to such Person pursuant to Section 10.04).

(b)      The terms and conditions of any  Incremental Revolving Commitment and the Loans and other extensions of credit to be made thereunder shall be identical to those of the Revolving Commitments and the Revolving Loans and other extensions of credit made thereunder, and shall be treated as a single Class with such Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans. The terms and conditions of any Incremental Term Loans shall be such as the Company and the applicable Incremental Term Lenders shall agree upon; provided that (i) the Incremental Term Loans shall be extensions of credit to the Company that are guaranteed only by the Subsidiary Guarantors, (ii) the Incremental Term Loans shall rank pari passu in right of payment with the other Loans and the other Loan Document Obligations and shall not be secured by any Liens on any assets of the Company or its Subsidiaries, unless the Loan Document Obligations are equally and ratably secured pursuant to security documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (iii) the Incremental Facility Agreement with respect thereto shall not contain any affirmative, negative or financial covenant applicable to the Company or the Subsidiaries or any event of default that benefits the Incremental Term Lenders (but not the other Lenders), in each case, except if this Agreement is amended to include such affirmative, negative or financial covenant or event of default for the benefit of all Lenders and (iv) if any Class of Term Loans shall be outstanding immediately after giving effect to the incurrence of such Incremental Term Loans and the application of the proceeds thereof, (A) the Incremental Term Maturity Date with respect to such Incremental Term Loans shall be no earlier than the latest Maturity Date of any such Class of Term Loans, (B) the weighted average life to maturity of such Incremental Term Loans shall be no shorter than the longest remaining weighted average life to maturity of any such Class of Term Loans and (C) such Incremental Term Loans shall not be subject to any mandatory prepayment provisions. Any Incremental Term Commitments established pursuant to a single Incremental Facility Agreement that have identical terms and conditions, and any Incremental Term Loans made thereunder, shall be designated as a separate “Class” of Commitments or Loans for all purposes of this Agreement; provided that any Incremental Term Loans that have identical terms as any other Class of “term” Loans then outstanding (in each case, disregarding any differences in original issue discount or upfront fees if not affecting the fungibility thereof for US federal income tax purposes) may, at the election of the Company, be treated as a single Class with such outstanding “term” Loans.
 
(c)       The Incremental Commitments shall be effected pursuant to one or more Incremental Facility Agreements executed and delivered by the Company, each
 

81
Incremental Lender providing such Incremental Commitments and the Administrative Agent (with the Administrative Agent hereby agreeing that its consent thereto shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed); provided that no Incremental Commitments shall become effective unless (i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of effectiveness thereof, both immediately prior to and immediately after giving effect to such Incremental Commitments and the making of any Loans thereunder to be made on such date, (ii) on the date of effectiveness thereof, the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties set forth in the Loan Documents shall be true and correct in (A) in the case of the representations and warranties qualified as to materiality, in all respects and (B) otherwise, in all material respects, in each case on and as of such date of effectiveness, except in the case of any such representation or warranty that expressly relates to a prior date, in which case such representation or warranty shall be so true and correct on and as of such prior date, and (iii) the Company shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent such customary legal opinions, board resolutions, secretary’s certificates, officer’s certificates and other documents as shall have been reasonably be requested by the Administrative Agent in connection with any such transaction. Each Incremental Facility Agreement may, without the consent of any Lender, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Company, to give effect to the provisions of this Section, including any amendments necessary or appropriate to treat the Incremental Term Commitments and the Incremental Term Loans as a new Class of Commitments and Loans hereunder (including for purposes of voting).
 
(d)      Upon the effectiveness of an Incremental Commitment of any Incremental Lender, (i) such Incremental Lender shall be deemed to be a “Lender” (and a Lender in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder, and henceforth shall be entitled to all the rights of, and benefits accruing to, Lenders (or Lenders in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and shall be bound by all agreements, acknowledgements and other obligations of Lenders (or Lenders in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and (ii) in the case of any Incremental Revolving Commitment, (A) such Incremental Revolving Commitment shall constitute (or, in the event such Incremental Lender already has a Revolving Commitment, shall increase) the Revolving Commitment of such Incremental Lender and (B) the Aggregate Revolving Commitment shall be increased by the amount of such Incremental Revolving Commitment, in each case, subject to further increase or reduction from time to time as provided herein. For the avoidance of doubt, upon the effectiveness of any Incremental Revolving Commitment, the Applicable Percentages of all the Revolving Lenders shall automatically be adjusted to give effect thereto.
 
(e)     On the date of effectiveness of any Incremental Revolving Commitments, (i) the aggregate principal amount of the Revolving Loans outstanding (the “Existing Revolving Borrowings”) immediately prior to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments shall be deemed to be repaid, (ii) each Incremental Revolving Lender that shall have had a Revolving Commitment prior to the effectiveness
 

82
of such Incremental Revolving Commitments shall pay to the Administrative Agent in same day funds and in the applicable currency an amount equal to the difference between (A) the product of (1) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Resulting Revolving Borrowing (as hereinafter defined) and (B) the product of (1) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (calculated without giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments) multiplied by (2) the amount of each corresponding Existing Revolving Borrowing, (iii) each Incremental Revolving Lender that shall not have had a Revolving Commitment prior to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments shall pay to Administrative Agent in same day funds and in the applicable currency an amount equal to the product of (1) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Resulting Revolving Borrowing, (iv) after the Administrative Agent receives the funds specified in clauses (ii) and (iii) above, the Administrative Agent shall pay to each Revolving Lender the portion of such funds that is equal to the difference between (A) the product of (1) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (calculated without giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments) multiplied by (2) the amount of each Existing Revolving Borrowing, and (B) the product of (1) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments) multiplied by (2) the amount of each corresponding Resulting Revolving Borrowing, (v) after the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments, the applicable Borrowers shall be deemed to have made new Revolving Borrowings (the “Resulting Revolving Borrowings”) in amounts and currencies equal to the amount and currencies of the Existing Revolving Borrowings and of the Types and for the Interest Periods specified in a Borrowing Request delivered to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 2.03 (and the Company shall, on behalf of all applicable Borrowers, deliver such Borrowing Request), (vi) each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to hold its Applicable Percentage of each Resulting Revolving Borrowing (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments) and (vii) the applicable Borrowers shall pay each Revolving Lender any and all accrued but unpaid interest on its Revolving Loans comprising the Existing Revolving Borrowings. The deemed payments of the Existing Revolving Borrowings made pursuant to clause (i) above shall be subject to compensation by the Borrowers pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.13 if the date of the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments occurs other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto.
 
(f)       Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the applicable Incremental Facility Agreement, each Lender holding an Incremental Term Commitment of any Class shall make a Loan to the Company in an amount equal to such Incremental Term Commitment on the date specified in such Incremental Facility Agreement.
 
(g)       The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders promptly upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of any notice from the Company referred to in paragraph (a) of this Section and of the effectiveness of any Incremental Commitments, in

each case advising the Lenders of the details thereof and, in the case of effectiveness of any Incremental Revolving Commitments, of the Applicable Percentages of the Revolving Lenders after giving effect thereto.
 
SECTION 2.19.   Bridge Facility.      (a) The Company may, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, request the establishment of Bridge Commitments, provided that the aggregate amount of the Bridge Commitments established hereunder shall not exceed the Bridge Facility Amount. Each such notice shall specify (i) the date on which the Company proposes that the Bridge Commitments shall become effective and (ii) the amount of the Bridge Commitments being established (it being agreed that (A) except to the extent such Lender shall have separately agreed in writing to provide any Bridge Commitment, any Lender approached to provide any Bridge Commitment may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide such Bridge Commitment and (B) any Person that the Company proposes to become a Bridge Lender, if such Person is not then a Lender, must be an Eligible Assignee).
 
(b)       The terms and conditions  of the Bridge Commitments  and the Bridge Loans to be made thereunder shall be as set forth in the Bridge Facility Agreement, provided that (i) the Bridge Loans shall be extensions of credit to the Company that are guaranteed only by the Subsidiary Guarantors, (ii) the Bridge Loans shall rank pari passu in right of payment with the other Loans and other Loan Document Obligations and shall not be secured by any Liens on any assets of the Company or its Subsidiaries, unless the Loan Document Obligations are equally and ratably secured pursuant to security documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, and (iii) the Bridge Facility Agreement shall not contain any affirmative, negative or financial covenant applicable to the Company or the Subsidiaries or any event of default that benefits the Bridge Lenders (but not the other Lenders), in each case, except if this Agreement is amended to include such affirmative, negative or financial covenant or event of default for the benefit of all Lenders (it being understood that nothing in this clause (iii) shall limit the scheduled maturity date, interest rate, benchmark rate floors, fees, original issue discounts, commitment termination requirements (including mandatory reductions) and prepayment requirement (including mandatory prepayments) applicable to the Bridge Commitments or the Bridge Loans).
 
(c)      The Bridge Commitments shall be effected pursuant to a Bridge Facility Agreement executed and delivered by the Company, each Bridge Lender providing such Bridge Commitments and the Bridge Facility Agent, subject to the satisfaction of such conditions precedent thereto as may be set forth in the Bridge Facility Agreement. The Bridge Facility Agreement may, without the consent of any Lender, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Bridge Facility Agent and the Company, to give effect to the provisions of this Section, including any amendments necessary or appropriate to treat the Bridge Commitments and the Bridge Loans as a new Class of Commitments and Loans hereunder (including for purposes of voting) or to provide to the Bridge Facility Agent such rights (including indemnity and exculpation provisions) and obligations as are appropriate for its role and comparable to those of the Administrative
 

84
Agent in respect of the Delayed Draw Term Facility. Goldman Sachs, in its capacity as the Bridge Facility Agent, is an express third party beneficiary of the provisions of this Section.
 
(d)      Upon the effectiveness of the Bridge Commitment of any Bridge Lender, such Bridge Lender shall be deemed to be a “Lender” (and a Lender in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder, and henceforth shall be entitled to all the rights of, and benefits accruing to, Lenders (or Lenders in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and shall be bound by all agreements, acknowledgements and other obligations of Lenders (or Lenders in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.

(e)       The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders promptly upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of any notice from the Company referred to in paragraph (a) of this Section and of the effectiveness of the Bridge Commitments, in each case advising the Lenders of the details thereof.
 
SECTION 2.20.   Letters of Credit. (a) General. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, any Borrower may request any Issuing Bank to issue Letters of Credit (or to amend, renew or extend outstanding Letters of Credit) denominated in any LC Currency, for its own account or, so long as the Company is a joint and several co-applicant with respect thereto, for the account of any Subsidiary, in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Bank, at any time and from time to time during the Revolving Availability Period (but in any event not after the latest expiration date specified in Section 2.20(c)). In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any form of letter of credit application or other agreement submitted by any Borrower to, or entered into by any Borrower with, any Issuing Bank relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control. The Company unconditionally and irrevocably agrees that, in connection with any Letter of Credit issued for the account of any Subsidiary as provided in the first sentence of this paragraph, the Company will be fully responsible for the reimbursement of LC Disbursements, the payment of interest thereon and the payment of fees due under Section 2.09(c) to the same extent as if it were the sole account party in respect of such Letter of Credit (the Company hereby irrevocably waiving, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any defenses that might otherwise be available to it as a guarantor of the obligations of any Subsidiary that shall be an account party in respect of any such Letter of Credit). Each Existing Letter of Credit shall be deemed, for all purposes of this Agreement (including paragraphs (d) and (f) of this Section), to be a Letter of Credit issued hereunder on the Effective Date for the account of the applicable Borrower. This Section shall not be construed to impose an obligation upon any Issuing Bank to issue any Letter of Credit if (i) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such Issuing Bank from issuing such Letter of Credit, or any law applicable to such Issuing Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such Issuing Bank shall prohibit, or request that such
 

85
Issuing Bank refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or, in the case of any Borrowing Subsidiary, shall impose upon such Issuing Bank with respect to such Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital or liquidity requirement, or shall impose upon such Issuing Bank any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense, in each case for which such Issuing Bank is not otherwise compensated hereunder, (ii) the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of general applicability of such Issuing Bank or (iii) such Letter of Credit is not in the currency approved for issuance by such Issuing Bank. The issuance of Letters of Credit by any Issuing Bank shall be subject to customary procedures of such Issuing Bank. No Issuing Bank shall be required to issue (but if requested as set forth above, may issue) trade Letters of Credit or Letters of Credit in the form of bank guaranties. It is understood and agreed that the provisions of this Section (and any other provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document) in respect of Letters of Credit will apply to bank guaranties, mutatis mutandis, with the intention of having the same effect for both letters of credit and bank guaranties.

(b)       Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Renewal, Extension; Certain Conditions. To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit (other than an automatic annual renewal of such Letter of Credit in accordance with its terms), the applicable Borrower shall hand deliver or fax (or transmit by electronic communication, if arrangements for doing so have been approved by the recipient) to the applicable Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent, reasonably in advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, a notice requesting the issuance of a Letter of Credit, or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, renewed or extended, and specifying the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (which shall be a Business Day), the date on which such Letter of Credit is to expire (which shall comply with paragraph (c) of this Section), the amount of such Letter of Credit, the currency of such Letter of Credit (which shall be an LC Currency), the name and address of the beneficiary thereof and such other information as shall be necessary to enable the applicable Issuing Bank to prepare, amend, renew or extend such Letter of Credit. If requested by the applicable Issuing Bank, the applicable Borrower also shall submit a letter of credit or bank guaranty application on such Issuing Bank’s standard form in connection with any such request. A Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, renewed or extended only if (and upon each issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to represent and warrant that), after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, (i) the LC Exposure attributable to Letters of Credit issued by any Issuing Bank will not exceed the LC Commitment of such Issuing Bank, (ii) the LC Exposure will not exceed US$500,000,000 and (iii) the Revolving Exposure of each Revolving Lender will not exceed its Revolving Commitment. Each Issuing Bank agrees that it shall not permit any issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of a Letter of Credit to occur unless it shall have given to the Administrative Agent written notice thereof required under paragraph (k) of this Section.
 

86
(c)        Expiration Date. Each Letter of Credit shall by its terms expire at or prior to the close of business on the date that is 20 Business Days prior to the Revolving Maturity Date.
 
(d)       Participations.   By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the amount thereof) and without any further action on the part of the applicable Issuing Bank or the Revolving Lenders, the Issuing Bank that is the issuer thereof hereby grants to each Revolving Lender, and each Revolving Lender hereby acquires from such Issuing Bank, a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Revolving Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Revolving Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of such Issuing Bank, such Revolving Lender’s Applicable Percentage of each LC Disbursement made by such Issuing Bank and not reimbursed by the applicable Borrower on the date due as provided in paragraph (f) of this Section, or of any reimbursement payment required to be refunded to the applicable Borrower for any reason. Such payment by the Revolving Lenders shall be made (i) if the currency of the applicable LC Disbursement or reimbursement payment shall be US Dollars, in US Dollars and (ii) subject to paragraph (l) of this Section, if the currency of the applicable LC Disbursement or reimbursement payment shall be a currency other than US Dollars, in US Dollars in an amount equal to the US Dollar Equivalent of such LC Disbursement or reimbursement payment, calculated by the Administrative Agent using the LC Exchange Rate on the applicable LC Participation Calculation Date. Each Revolving Lender acknowledges and agrees that (i) its obligation to acquire participations pursuant to this paragraph in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit, any fluctuation in currency values, the occurrence and continuance of any Default, any reduction or termination of the Revolving Commitments or any force majeure or other event that under any rule of law or uniform practices to which any Letter of Credit is subject (including Section 3.14 of ISP 98 or any successor publication of the International Chamber of Commerce) permits a drawing to be made under such Letter of Credit after the expiration thereof or of the Revolving Commitments, and (ii) each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. Each Revolving Lender further acknowledges and agrees that, in issuing, amending, renewing or extending any Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Bank shall be entitled to rely, and shall not incur any liability for relying, upon the representation and warranty of the Borrowers deemed made pursuant to Section 4.03, unless, at least two Business Days prior to the time such Letter of Credit is issued, amended, renewed or extended (or, in the case of an automatic annual renewal of such Letter of Credit in accordance with its terms, at least two Business Days prior to the time by which the election not to extend must be made by the applicable Issuing Bank), a Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders shall have notified the applicable Issuing Bank (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) in writing that, as a result of one or more events or circumstances described in such notice, one or more of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.03(a) or 4.03(b) would not be satisfied if such Letter of Credit were then issued, amended, renewed or extended (it
 

87
being understood and agreed that, in the event any Issuing Bank shall have received any such notice, no Issuing Bank shall have any obligation to issue, amend, renew or extend any Letter of Credit until and unless it shall be satisfied that the events and circumstances described in such notice shall have been cured or otherwise shall have ceased to exist).
 
(e)       Disbursements.  Each Issuing Bank shall, promptly following its receipt thereof, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit issued by it and shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent and the applicable Borrower by telephone (confirmed by hand delivery or facsimile) of such demand for payment and whether such Issuing Bank has made or will make an LC Disbursement thereunder; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve any Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such LC Disbursement.
 
(f)        Reimbursement.If  an Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount in the currency of such LC Disbursement equal to such LC Disbursement not later than 12:00 p.m., Local Time, on the Business Day immediately following the day that such Borrower receives notice of such LC Disbursement; provided that, if such LC Disbursement is denominated in US Dollars and is not less than US$1,000,000, the applicable Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.03 that such payment be financed with an ABR Revolving Borrowing or a Swingline Loan in an equivalent amount and, to the extent so financed, such Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting ABR Revolving Borrowing or Swingline Loan. If the applicable Borrower fails to make any such reimbursement payment when due, (i) if such payment relates to a Letter of Credit denominated in any currency other than US Dollars, automatically and with no further action required, the obligation of such Borrower to reimburse the applicable LC Disbursement shall be permanently converted into an obligation to reimburse the US Dollar Equivalent, calculated using the LC Exchange Rate on the applicable LC Participation Calculation Date, of such LC Disbursement and (ii) in the case of each LC Disbursement, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Lender of the applicable LC Disbursement, the amount of the payment then due from such Borrower in respect thereof and such Revolving Lender’s Applicable Percentage thereof, and each Revolving Lender shall pay in US Dollars to the Administrative Agent on the date such notice is received its Applicable Percentage of the payment then due from such Borrower, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.04 with respect to Revolving Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.04 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Revolving Lenders pursuant to this paragraph), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable Issuing Bank the amounts so received by it from the Revolving Lenders. Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from a Borrower pursuant to this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the applicable Issuing Bank or, to the extent that Revolving Lenders have made payments pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse such Issuing Bank, then to such Revolving Lenders and such Issuing Bank as their interests may appear. Any payment made by a Revolving Lender pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse an Issuing Bank for any LC
 

88
Disbursement (other than the funding of an ABR Revolving Loan or a Swingline Loan as contemplated above) shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve the applicable Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such LC Disbursement. If the applicable Borrower’s reimbursement of, or obligation to reimburse, any amounts in any currency other than US Dollars would subject the Administrative Agent, the applicable Issuing Bank or any Revolving Lender to any stamp duty, ad valorem charge or similar tax that would not be payable if such reimbursement were made or required to be made in US Dollars, such Borrower shall pay the amount of any such tax requested by the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Bank or such Revolving Lender.

(g)       Obligations Absolute. Each Borrower’s obligation to reimburse LC Disbursements as provided in paragraph (f) of this Section is absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or any term or provision thereof or hereof, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by an Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, (iv) any force majeure or other event that under any rule of law or uniform practices to which any Letter of Credit is subject (including Section 3.14 of ISP 98 or any successor publication of the International Chamber of Commerce) permits a drawing to be made under such Letter of Credit after the stated expiration date thereof or of the Revolving Commitments or (v) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this paragraph, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, the applicable Borrower’s obligations hereunder. None of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the Issuing Banks or any of their Related Parties shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit, any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any other act, failure to act or other event or circumstance; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse any Issuing Bank from liability to the Borrowers to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Borrowers to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by the Borrowers that are caused by such Issuing Bank’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree that unless a court of competent jurisdiction shall have determined in a final and nonappealable judgment that in making any such determination the applicable Issuing Bank acted with gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct, such Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have exercised care in such determination. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect
 

89
to documents presented that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, an Issuing Bank may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.
 
(h)      Interim Interest.   If an Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement, then, unless the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement in full on the date such LC Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof (determined in accordance with the definition thereof) shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such LC Disbursement is made to but excluding the date that the applicable Borrower reimburses such LC Disbursement, (i) in the case of any LC Disbursement denominated in US Dollars, and at all times following the conversion to US Dollars of any LC Disbursement made in any other LC Currency pursuant to paragraph (f) or (l) of this Section, at the rate per annum then applicable to ABR Revolving Loans and (ii) if such LC Disbursement is made in an LC Currency other than US Dollars, at all times prior to its conversion to US Dollars pursuant to paragraph (f) or (l) of this Section, at a rate equal to the rate reasonably determined by the applicable Issuing Bank to be the cost to such Issuing Bank of funding such LC Disbursement (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error, it being understood that such Issuing Bank may deem the applicable Alternative Currency Overnight Rate to represent such cost of funding) plus the Applicable Rate applicable to LIBOR Revolving Loans at such time; provided that, if the applicable Borrower fails to reimburse such LC Disbursement when due pursuant to paragraph (f) of this Section, then Section 2.10(d) shall apply. Interest accrued pursuant to this paragraph shall be paid to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Revolving Lender pursuant to paragraph (f) of this Section to reimburse such Issuing Bank shall be paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Revolving Lender to the extent of such payment, and shall be payable on demand or, if no demand has been made, on the date on which the applicable Borrower reimburses the applicable LC Disbursement in full.
 
(i)       Designation of Additional Issuing Banks.    The Company may, at any time and from time to time, with the consent of the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned), designate as additional Issuing Banks one or more Revolving Lenders that agree to serve in such capacity as provided below. The acceptance by a Revolving Lender of an appointment as an Issuing Bank hereunder shall be evidenced by an agreement, which shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, executed by the Company, the Administrative Agent and such designated Revolving Lender and, from and after the effective date of such agreement, (i) such Revolving Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement and (ii) references herein and in the other Loan Documents to the term “Issuing Bank” shall be deemed to include such Revolving Lender in its capacity as an issuer of Letters of Credit hereunder.
 

90
(j)       Termination of an Issuing Bank.    The Company may terminate the appointment of any Issuing Bank as an “Issuing Bank” hereunder by providing a written notice thereof to such Issuing Bank, with a copy to the Administrative Agent. Any such termination shall become effective upon the earlier of (i) such Issuing Bank acknowledging receipt of such notice and (ii) the 10th Business Day following the date of the delivery thereof; provided that no such termination shall become effective until and unless the LC Exposure attributable to Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank (or its Affiliates) shall have been reduced to zero. At the time any such termination shall become effective, the Borrowers shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the terminated Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.09(c). Notwithstanding the effectiveness of any such termination, the terminated Issuing Bank shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such termination, but shall not issue any additional Letters of Credit.
 
(k)       Issuing Bank Reports to the Administrative Agent.     Unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank shall, in addition to its notification obligations set forth elsewhere in this Section, (i) report in writing to the Administrative Agent periodic activity (for such period or recurrent periods as shall be requested by the Administrative Agent) in respect of Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank, including all issuances, extensions, amendments and renewals, all expirations and cancellations and all disbursements and reimbursements, (ii) reasonably prior to the time that such Issuing Bank issues, amends, renews or extends any Letter of Credit, the date of such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, and the currency and stated amount of the Letters of Credit issued, amended, renewed or extended by it and outstanding after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (and whether the amounts thereof shall have changed), (iii) on any Business Day on which any Borrower fails to reimburse an LC Disbursement required to be reimbursed to such Issuing Bank on such day, the date of such failure and the currency and amount of such LC Disbursement and (iv) on any other Business Day, such other information as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request as to the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank.
 
(l)        Conversion. In the event that the Loans become immediately due and payable on any date pursuant to Section 7.01, all amounts (i) that the Borrowers are at the time or become thereafter required to reimburse or otherwise pay to the Administrative Agent in respect of LC Disbursements made under any Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency other than US Dollars (other than amounts in respect of which any Borrower has deposited cash collateral, if such cash collateral was deposited in the applicable currency), (ii) that the Revolving Lenders are at the time or become thereafter required to pay to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent is at the time or becomes thereafter required to distribute to the applicable Issuing Bank) pursuant to paragraph (f) of this Section in respect of unreimbursed LC Disbursements made under any Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency other than US Dollars and (iii) of each Revolving Lender’s participation in any Letter of Credit denominated in an LC Currency other than US Dollars under which an LC Disbursement has been made
 

91
shall, automatically and with no further action required, be converted into the US Dollar Equivalent, calculated using the LC Exchange Rate on the date that the Loans become immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 7.01 (or in the case of any LC Disbursement made after such date, on the date such LC Disbursement is made), of such amounts. On and after such conversion, all amounts accruing and owed to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Revolving Lender in respect of the obligations described in this paragraph shall accrue and be payable in US Dollars at the rates otherwise applicable hereunder.

(m)      Exposure Determination.   For all purposes of this Agreement, the amount of a Letter of Credit that, by its terms or the terms of any document related thereto, provides for one or more automatic increases in the stated amount thereof shall be deemed to be the maximum stated amount of such Letter of Credit after giving effect to all such increases (other than any such increase consisting of the reinstatement of an amount previously drawn thereunder and reimbursed), whether or not such maximum stated amount is in effect at the time of determination.
 
(n)      Cash Collateralization.   If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, on the Business Day that the Company receives notice from the Administrative Agent or a Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders demanding the deposit of cash collateral pursuant to this paragraph, each Borrower shall deposit in an account with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Revolving Lenders and the Issuing Banks, an amount in US Dollars equal to the LC Exposure attributable to Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower as of such date plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon; provided that (i) amounts required to be deposited in respect of any Letter of Credit or LC Disbursement shall be deposited in the currency of such Letter of Credit or LC Disbursement, except that amounts required to be deposited in respect of LC Disbursements in an LC Currency other than US Dollars in respect of which the applicable Borrower’s reimbursement obligations have been converted to obligations in US Dollars as provided in paragraph (f) or (l) of this Section and interest accrued thereon shall be deposited in US Dollars, and (ii) the obligation to deposit such cash collateral shall become effective immediately, and such deposit shall become immediately due and payable, without demand or other notice of any kind, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default with respect to any Borrower under Section 7.01(i). The Borrowers shall also deposit cash collateral in accordance with this paragraph as and to the extent required by Section 2.08(b) or 2.17(c). Each such deposit shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the obligations of the applicable Borrower under this Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account. Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be in Cash Equivalent Investments if any such investments are made (it being understood that any such investments shall be at the option and sole discretion of the Administrative Agent and at the applicable Borrower’s risk and expense), such deposits shall not bear interest. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account. Moneys in such account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse the Issuing Banks for LC Disbursements for which

they have not been reimbursed and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of the applicable Borrower for the LC Exposure at such time or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated (but subject to the consent of (A) a Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders and (B) in the case of any such application at a time when any Revolving Lender is a Defaulting Lender (but only if, after giving effect thereto, the remaining cash collateral shall be less than the total LC Exposure of all the Defaulting Lenders), the consent of each Issuing Bank), be applied to satisfy other obligations of such Borrower under this Agreement. If a Borrower is required to provide an amount of cash collateral hereunder as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to such Borrower within three Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived. If the Borrowers are required to provide an amount of cash collateral hereunder pursuant to Section 2.08(b), such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to the Borrowers to the extent that the applicable excess referred to in such Section shall have been eliminated and no Default shall have occurred and be continuing. If the Borrowers provide an amount of cash collateral hereunder pursuant to Section 2.17(c), such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to the Borrowers, upon request of the Borrowers, to the extent that, after giving effect to such return, no Issuing Bank shall have any exposure in respect of any outstanding Letter of Credit that is not fully covered by the Revolving Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders and/or the remaining cash collateral and no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing.
 
SECTION 2.21.   Swingline Loans. (a)Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Swingline Lender may, in its sole discretion, make Swingline Loans denominated in US Dollars to any Borrower from time to time during the Revolving Availability Period, provided that, after giving effect thereto, (i) the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Swingline Loans shall not exceed US$75,000,000, (ii) no Lender’s Revolving Exposure shall exceed such Lender’s Revolving Commitment and (iii) the Aggregate Revolving Exposure shall not exceed the Aggregate Revolving Commitment. Within the foregoing limits and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Borrowers may borrow, prepay and reborrow Swingline Loans. For the avoidance of doubt, any reference in this Agreement to the obligation of the Swingline Lender to make a Swingline Loan being subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions or to the Swingline Lender not being required to fund any Swingline Loan absent the occurrence of certain events (or words of similar import) shall not be deemed to create any obligation of the Swingline Lender to make or fund any Swingline Loan other than in its sole discretion.
 
(b)      To request a Swingline Loan, the applicable Borrower (or the Company on its behalf) shall submit to the Swingline Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) a Swingline Borrowing Request, signed by its Senior Officer, not later than 1:00 p.m., Local Time, on the day of the proposed Swingline Loan. Each such Swingline Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable and shall specify the name of the applicable Borrower, the requested date (which shall be a Business Day) and the amount of the requested Swingline Loan and the location and number of the account of the
 

93
applicable Borrower to which funds are to be disbursed or, in the case of any Swingline Loan requested to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.20(f), the identity of the Issuing Bank that has made such LC Disbursement. If the Swingline Lender shall have determined, in its sole discretion, to make the requested Swingline Loan, then the Swingline Lender shall make such Swingline Loan available to the applicable Borrower by means of a wire transfer to the account specified in the applicable Swingline Borrowing Request or to the applicable Issuing Bank, as the case may be, by 4:00 p.m., Local Time, on the requested date of such Swingline Loan.
 
(c)       The Swingline Lender may by written notice given to the Administrative Agent not later than 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on any Business Day require the Revolving Lenders to acquire participations on such Business Day in all or a portion of the Swingline Loans outstanding. Such notice shall specify the aggregate amount of the Swingline Loans in which the Revolving Lenders will be required to participate. Promptly upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent will give notice thereof to each Revolving Lender, specifying in such notice such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such Swingline Loan or Loans. Each Revolving Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay, upon receipt of notice as provided above, to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Swingline Lender, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such Swingline Loan or Loans. Each Revolving Lender acknowledges and agrees that, in making any Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender shall be entitled to rely, and shall not incur any liability for relying, upon the representation and warranty of the Borrowers deemed made pursuant to Section 4.03, unless, at least two Business Days prior to the time such Swingline Loan was made, the Majority in Interest of the Revolving Lenders shall have notified the Swingline Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) in writing that, as a result of one or more events or circumstances described in such notice, one or more of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.03(a) or 4.03(b) would not be satisfied if such Swingline Loan were then made (it being understood and agreed that, in the event the Swingline Lender shall have received any such notice, it shall have no obligation to make any Swingline Loan until and unless it shall be satisfied that the events and circumstances described in such notice shall have been cured or otherwise shall have ceased to exist). Each Revolving Lender further acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to this paragraph is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including the occurrence and continuance of a Default or any reduction or termination of the Revolving Commitments, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. Each Revolving Lender shall comply with its obligation under this paragraph by wire transfer of immediately available funds, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.04 with respect to Revolving Loans made by such Revolving Lender (and Section 2.04 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Revolving Lenders pursuant to this paragraph), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Swingline Lender the amounts so received by it from the Revolving Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers of any participations in any Swingline Loan acquired pursuant to this paragraph, and thereafter payments in respect of such Swingline Loan shall be made to the Administrative Agent and not to the Swingline Lender. Any amounts received by the
 

94
Swingline Lender from any Borrower (or other Person on behalf of any Borrower) in respect of a Swingline Loan after receipt by the Swingline Lender of the proceeds of a sale of participations therein shall be promptly remitted to the Administrative Agent; any such amounts received by the Administrative Agent shall be promptly remitted by the Administrative Agent to the Revolving Lenders that shall have made their payments pursuant to this paragraph and to the Swingline Lender, as their interests may appear; provided that any such payment so remitted shall be repaid to the Swingline Lender or to the Administrative Agent, as applicable, if and to the extent such payment is required to be refunded to the Borrower for any reason. The purchase of participations in a Swingline Loan pursuant to this paragraph shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve the applicable Borrower of its obligation to repay such Swingline Loan.
 
(d)      The Swingline Lender may be replaced at any time by written agreement among the Company, the Administrative Agent, the successor Swingline Lender and, except in the case of a resignation by the replaced Swingline Lender pursuant to Section 2.21(e), the replaced Swingline Lender. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Revolving Lenders of any such replacement of the Swingline Lender. At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the Borrower shall pay all unpaid interest accrued for the account of the replaced Swingline Lender pursuant to Section 2.10(a). From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (i) the successor Swingline Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of the replaced Swingline Lender under this Agreement with respect to Swingline Loans made thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term “Swingline Lender” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Swingline Lender, or to such successor and all previous Swingline Lenders, as the context shall require. After the replacement of the Swingline Lender hereunder, the replaced Swingline Lender shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of a Swingline Lender under this Agreement with respect to Swingline Loans made by it prior to its replacement, but shall not make additional Swingline Loans.
 
(e)      Subject to the appointment and   acceptance   of a successor Swingline Lender in accordance with Section 2.21(d), the Swingline Lender may resign as Swingline Lender at any time upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and the Revolving Lenders, in which case, the Swingline Lender shall be replaced in accordance with Section 2.21(d).
 
SECTION 2.22.   Borrowing Subsidiaries. (a) The Company may at any time and from time to time request the designation of any wholly owned Subsidiary as a Borrowing Subsidiary by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a written request therefor. The effectiveness of any such designation shall be subject to (i) the prior written consent thereto by the Administrative Agent and, other than in the case of such designation of an Approved Netherlands Borrower or any Domestic Borrowing Subsidiary, by each Revolving Lender (in each case, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), it being understood that a Revolving Lender shall be deemed to have acted reasonably in withholding its consent if (A) it is unlawful (or such Revolving Lender cannot or has not been able to determine that it is lawful) for such Revolving Lender to make Revolving Loans and other extensions of credit under this Agreement to
 

95
such Subsidiary, (B) the making of Revolving Loans or other extensions of credit under this Agreement to such Subsidiary might subject such Revolving Lender to adverse tax consequences for which it is not reimbursed hereunder, (C) such Revolving Lender would be required to, or has determined that it would be prudent to, register or file in the jurisdiction of formation, organization or location of such Subsidiary in order to make Revolving Loans or other extensions of credit under this Agreement to such Subsidiary, and such Revolving Lender does not wish to do so or (D) such Revolving Lender is restricted by operational or administrative procedures or other applicable internal policies from making Revolving Loans or other extensions of credit under this Agreement to Persons formed, organized or located in the jurisdiction in which such Subsidiary is formed, organized or located, (ii) (A) each Lender having received all documentation and other information with respect to such Subsidiary required by bank regulatory authorities under applicable “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including the USA PATRIOT Act, that shall have been requested by such Lender prior to a deadline notified by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders (which deadline shall be set by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion and in consultation with the Company) and (B) to the extent such Subsidiary qualifies as a “legal entity customer” under the Beneficial Ownership Regulation, the Administrative Agent having received a Beneficial Ownership Certification in relation to such Subsidiary prior to a deadline notified by the Administrative Agent (which deadline shall be set by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion and in consultation with the Company) and (iii) satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 4.04. Upon the execution and delivery of a Borrowing Subsidiary Accession Agreement by the Company and such Subsidiary, and the acceptance thereof by the Administrative Agent, such Subsidiary shall for all purposes of this Agreement be a Borrowing Subsidiary and a party to this Agreement.
 
(b)      Upon the execution by the Company and   delivery to   the Administrative Agent of a Borrowing Subsidiary Termination with respect to any Borrowing Subsidiary, such Subsidiary shall cease to be a Borrowing Subsidiary and a party to this Agreement; provided that no Borrowing Subsidiary Termination will become effective as to any Borrowing Subsidiary (other than to terminate such Borrowing Subsidiary’s right to make further Revolving Borrowings or Swingline Loans or obtain Letters of Credit under this Agreement) at a time when any principal of or interest on any Revolving Loan or Swingline Loan to such Borrowing Subsidiary, or any Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Borrowing Subsidiary, shall be outstanding hereunder or any fees or other amounts remain unpaid with respect thereto. As soon as practicable upon receipt of a Borrowing Subsidiary Termination, the Administrative Agent shall make a copy thereof available to each Revolving Lender.
 
(c)      Each Borrowing Subsidiary hereby irrevocably appoints the Company as its agent for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including (i) the giving and receipt of notices (including any Borrowing Request and any Interest Election Request) and (ii) the execution and delivery of all documents, instruments and certificates contemplated herein. Each Borrowing Subsidiary hereby acknowledges that any amendment or other modification to this Agreement or any other Loan Document may be effected as set forth in Section 10.02, that no consent of such
 

96
Borrowing Subsidiary shall be required to effect any such amendment or other modification and that such Borrowing Subsidiary shall be bound by this Agreement or any other Loan Document (if it is theretofore a party thereto) as so amended or modified.
 
(d)       Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents to the contrary, it is agreed, and the Loan Documents shall in all circumstances be interpreted to provide, that each Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary is liable only for Loans made to such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary, interest on such Loans, such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary’s reimbursement obligations with respect to any Letter of Credit issued for its account and for the account of its subsidiaries and interest thereon and its other Obligations, including, without limitation, general fees, reimbursements, indemnities and charges for which it is severally liable hereunder or under any other Loan Document. Nothing in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document (including, but not limited to, provisions which purport to impose joint and several liability on a Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary and the other Loan Parties) shall be deemed or operate to cause any Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary to Guarantee or assume liability with respect to any Loan made to the Company or any other Loan Party, any Letters of Credit issued for the account of the Company or any other Subsidiary (other than a subsidiary of such Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary) or other Obligation for which any other Loan Party is the primary obligor. Nothing in this paragraph is intended to limit, nor shall it be deemed to limit, any liability of the Company or any other Loan Party (other than a Foreign Borrowing Subsidiary) for any of the Obligations, whether in its primary capacity as a Borrower, as a guarantor, at law or otherwise.
 
SECTION 2.23.   Non-Public Lender. Any Loan extended to or for the account of a Borrower incorporated under the laws of the Netherlands shall at all times be provided by a Lender that is a Non-Public Lender.
