Applicable Interest Rate Except as herein provided with respect to interest accruing at the Default Rate, interest on the principal balance of the Loan outstanding from time to time shall accrue from (and including) the Closing Date up to and including the end of the last Interest Period at the Applicable Interest Rate.
Applicable Interest Rates (a) Each Loan shall bear interest until maturity (whether by acceleration, declaration, extension or otherwise) at either the Base Rate or the Eurodollar Rate, as selected and specified by the Borrowers in an Interest Rate Election Notice furnished to the Lender in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.5.2(e), or as otherwise determined in accordance with the provisions of this ARTICLE II, and as may be adjusted from time to time in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.5.3 (Inability to Determine Eurodollar Base Rate).
Applicable Margin For each period commencing on an Adjustment Date through the date immediately preceding the next Adjustment Date (each a “Rate Adjustment Period”), the Applicable Margin shall be the applicable margin set forth below with respect to the Total Leverage Ratio, as determined for the Reference Period of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries ending on the fiscal quarter ended immediately prior to the applicable Rate Adjustment Period. Level Total Leverage Ratio Base Rate Loans Eurodollar Rate Loans Letter of Credit Fees Commitment Fee I Greater than or equal to 4.00:1.00 0.50 % 2.25 % 2.25 % 0.450 % II Less than 4.00:1.00 but greater than or equal to 3.25:1.00 0.25 % 2.00 % 2.00 % 0.400 % III Less than 3.25:1.00 but greater than or equal to 2.50:1.00 0.00 % 1.75 % 1.75 % 0.350 % IV Less than 2.50:1.00 but greater than or equal to 1.75:1.00 0.00 % 1.50 % 1.50 % 0.300 % V Less than 1.75:1.00 0.00 % 1.25 % 1.25 % 0.250 % Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) for the Loans outstanding and the Letter of Credit Fees and the Commitment Fee payable during the period commencing on the Closing Date through the date immediately preceding the Adjustment Date with respect to the receipt of a Compliance Certificate for the period ending December 31, 2006, the Applicable Margin shall be no lower than the Applicable Margin set forth in Level II above, and (b) if the Borrower fails to deliver any Compliance Certificate pursuant to §8.4(d) hereof, then for the period commencing on the next Adjustment Date to occur (or was to have occurred) subsequent to such failure through the date immediately following the date on which such Compliance Certificate is actually delivered, the Applicable Margin shall be the highest Applicable Margin set forth above (i.e., Level I above). Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary, in the event either the Borrower or the Administrative Agent determines, in good faith, that the calculation of the Total Leverage Ratio on which the Applicable Margin for any particular period was determined is inaccurate and, as a consequence thereof, the Applicable Margin was lower or higher than it would have been, (i) the Borrower shall promptly (but in any event within ten (10) Business Days) deliver (after the Borrower discovers such inaccuracy or the Borrower is notified by the Administrative Agent of such inaccuracy, as the case may be) to the Administrative Agent correct financial statements for such period (and if such financial statements are not accurately restated and delivered within thirty (30) days after the first discovery of such inaccuracy by the Borrower or such notice, as the case may be, and the Applicable Margin was lower than it should have been, then Pricing Level I shall apply retroactively for such period until such time as the correct financial statements are delivered and, upon the delivery of such corrected financial statements, thereafter the corrected Pricing Level shall apply for such period), (ii) the Administrative Agent shall determine and notify the Borrower of the amount of interest that would have been due in respect of outstanding Obligations, if any, during such period had the Applicable Margin been calculated based on the correct Total Leverage Ratio (or, to the extent applicable, the Level I Applicable Margin if such corrected financial statements were not delivered as provided herein) and (iii) the Borrower shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent the difference, if any, between that amount and the amount actually paid in respect of such period. The foregoing notwithstanding shall in no way limit the rights of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders to exercise their rights to impose the rate of interest applicable during an Event of Default as provided herein.
Applicable Margins The ABR Applicable Margin and the LIBOR Applicable Margin to be used in calculating the interest rate applicable to different Types of Advances shall vary from time to time in accordance with the long-term unsecured debt ratings from Xxxxx’x, and Fitch of the General Partner and the Borrower. In the event the General Partner and the Borrower have different ratings, the rating of the higher rated entity shall be used. In the event the rating agencies are split on the rating for the higher rated entity, the lower rating for such entity shall be deemed to be the applicable rating (e.g., if the higher rated entity’s Xxxxx’x debt rating is Baa1, and its Fitch’s rating is BBB, then the Applicable Margins shall be computed based on the Fitch rating), and the Applicable Margins shall be adjusted effective on the next Business Day following any change in the higher rated entity’s Xxxxx’x debt rating, and/or Fitch’s debt rating, as the case may be. The applicable debt ratings and the Applicable Margins are set forth in the table attached as Exhibit A. In the event that Fitch or Xxxxx’x shall discontinue their ratings of the REIT industry, the General Partner or the Borrower, a mutually agreeable substitute rating agency (or two mutually agreeable substitute agencies if both existing rating agencies discontinue such ratings) shall be selected by the Required Lenders and the Borrower. If the Required Lenders and the Borrower cannot agree on a substitute rating agency or substitute rating agencies within thirty (30) days after such discontinuance, or if Fitch and Xxxxx’x shall discontinue their ratings of the REIT industry, the Borrower, or the General Partner, the Applicable Margin to be used for the calculation of interest on Advances hereunder shall be the highest Applicable Margin for each Type. If a rating agency downgrade or discontinuance results in an increase in the ABR Applicable Margin, the LIBOR Applicable Margin, or Facility Fee Rate and if such downgrade or discontinuance is reversed and the affected Applicable Margin is restored within ninety (90) days thereafter, at the Borrower’s request, the Borrower shall receive a credit against interest next due the Lenders equal to interest accrued from time to time during such period of downgrade or discontinuance and actually paid by the Borrower on the Advances at the differential between such Applicable Margins, and the differential of the Facility Fee paid during such period of downgrade. If a rating agency upgrade results in a decrease in the ABR Applicable Margin, LIBOR Applicable Margin or Facility Fee Rate and if such upgrade is reversed and the affected Applicable Margin is restored within ninety (90) days thereafter, Borrower shall be required to pay an amount to the Lenders equal to the interest differential on the Advances and the differential on the Facility Fees during such period of upgrade.
Interest and Applicable Margins (a) Borrower shall pay interest to Agent, for the ratable benefit of Lenders in accordance with the various Loans being made by each Lender, in arrears on each applicable Interest Payment Date, at the following rates: (i) with respect to the Revolving Credit Advances, the Index Rate plus the Applicable Revolver Index Margin per annum or, at the election of Borrower, the applicable LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Revolver LIBOR Margin per annum, based on the aggregate Revolving Credit Advances outstanding from time to time; (ii) with respect to the Term Loan, the Index Rate plus the Applicable Term Loan Index Margin per annum or, at the election of Borrower, the applicable LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Term Loan LIBOR Margin per annum; and (iii) with respect to the Swing Line Loan, the Index Rate plus the Applicable Revolver Index Margin per annum. The Applicable Margins are as follows: Applicable Revolver Index Margin 3.00 % Applicable Revolver LIBOR Margin 4.00 % Applicable Term Loan Index Margin 3.00 % Applicable Term Loan LIBOR Margin 4.00 %
Interest Rates and Letter of Credit Fee Rates Payments and Calculations Interest Rates. (I) Except as provided in Section 2.6(c), all Obligations (except for undrawn Letters of Credit and Term Obligations) that have been charged to the Loan Account pursuant to the terms hereof shall bear interest on the Daily Balance thereof (from the date of incurrence through but excluding the date of repayment or prepayment (whether by acceleration or otherwise)) as follows: if the relevant Obligation is a LIBOR Rate Loan denominated in Dollars, at a per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Rate Loans, if the relevant Obligation is a LIBOR Rate Loan denominated in Euros, at a per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Rate Loans, if the relevant Obligation is a Swingline Loan, a per annum rate equal to the overnight LIBO Rate plus its Applicable Margin for Overnight LIBO Loans, and otherwise in respect of Revolver Obligations, at a per annum rate equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans.
Determination of Applicable Interest Rate As soon as practicable on each Interest Rate Determination Date, Bank shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error in calculation, be final, conclusive and binding upon all parties) the interest rate that shall apply to the LIBOR Advances for which an interest rate is then being determined for the applicable Interest Period and shall promptly give notice thereof (in writing or by telephone confirmed in writing) to Borrower.
Letter of Credit Fees, Interest Rate The Letter of Credit Fees and the rate of interest for each Loan otherwise applicable pursuant to Section 2.9.2 [Letter of Credit Fees] or Section 4.1 [Interest Rate Options], respectively, shall be increased by 2.0% per annum;
Borrower Information Used to Determine Applicable Interest Rates The parties understand that the applicable interest rate for the Obligations and certain fees set forth herein may be determined and/or adjusted from time to time based upon certain financial ratios and/or other information to be provided or certified to the Lenders by the Borrower (the “Borrower Information”). If it is subsequently determined that any such Borrower Information was incorrect (for whatever reason, including without limitation because of a subsequent restatement of earnings by the Borrower) at the time it was delivered to the Administrative Agent, and if the applicable interest rate or fees calculated for any period were lower than they should have been had the correct information been timely provided, then, such interest rate and such fees for such period shall be automatically recalculated using correct Borrower Information. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower in writing of any additional interest and fees due because of such recalculation, and the Borrower shall pay such additional interest or fees due to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Lender, within five (5) Business Days of receipt of such written notice. Any recalculation of interest or fees required by this provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement, and this provision shall not in any way limit any of the Administrative Agent’s, the Issuing Bank’s, or any Lender’s other rights under this Agreement.
Maximum Interest Rate No provision of this Agreement, the Note, or any other Loan Document shall require the payment or permit the collection of interest in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law (the "Maximum Rate"). If interest in excess of the Maximum Rate is provided for in this Agreement, in any other Loan Document, or otherwise in connection with the Loan, or is adjudicated to be so provided, the provisions of this section shall govern and prevail and Borrower shall be obligated to pay the excess amount of such interest or any other excess sum paid for the use, forbearance, or detention of Advances made under this Agreement. In the event Lender ever receives, collects or applies, as interest due and payable under the Note, any sum in excess of the Maximum Rate, the amount of the excess shall be applied as a payment and reduction of the principal of the indebtedness represented by the Note; and if the principal of the indebtedness represented by the Note has been fully paid, any remaining excess shall forthwith be paid to Borrower. In determining whether or not interest paid or payable exceeds the Maximum Rate, Borrower and Lender shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, (a) characterize any non-principal payment as an expense, fee or premium rather than as interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (c) amortize, prorate, allocate and spread, in equal or unequal parts, the total amount of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of the indebtedness represented by the Note so that interest for the entire term does not exceed the Maximum Rate.
