Incremental Auction Sample Clauses

Incremental Auction. Incremental Auction shall mean the First Incremental Auction, the Second Incremental Auction, the Third Incremental Auction, or the Conditional Incremental Auction, each as defined in Attachment DD to the PJM Tariff.
Incremental Auction. Revenue Rights (IARRs) are ARRs made available by physical transmission system upgrades from customer funded transmission projects or from merchant transmission or generation interconnection requests. In order for a transmission project to generate IARRs, the project must create simultaneously feasible incremental market flow capability in PJM’s ARR market model, over and above all system capability being used by existing allocated ARRs and/or would be used by granting any prorated outstanding ARR requests, in the ARR market model.17 There are three approaches to the creation and assigning of IARRs: IARRs can be requested by customers, which requires the customer to build sufficient transmission to support the request; IARRs can be the granted as a result of customer transmission projects such as merchant transmission or generation interconnection projects; and IARRs can be the result of RTEP upgrades. In each case, the customer(s) paying for the upgrades are allocated the IARR that are created. The direct customer request approach for creating and allocating IARR should be eliminated from PJM’s tariff. Given the current allocation of existing ARRs relative to system capability, the upgrades needed to produce any quantity of IARR under this approach are prohibitively expensive and impractical. The PJM process is not sufficiently transparent for a potential customer to make a rational decision about a potential IARR project. Much of the information required to determine whether a particular IARR project is economically viable is confidential and proprietary to incumbent transmission 17 See PJM Incremental Auction Revenue Rights Model Development and Analysis, PJM June 12, 2017. <xxxxx://xxx.xxx.xxx/~/media/markets-ops/ftr/pjm-iarr-model-development-and- analysis.ashx>. companies including the nature and cost of any required upgrades. IARRs are appropriately allocated to customers that have been assigned cost responsibility for certain upgrades included in the PJM’s Regional Transmission Expansion Plan (RTEP). These customers as defined in Schedule 12 of the Tariff are network service customers and/or merchant transmission facility owners that are assigned the cost responsibility for upgrades included in the PJM RTEP. PJM calculates IARRs for each regionally assigned facility and allocates the IARRs, if any are created by the upgrade, to eligible customers based on their percentage of cost responsibility. The customers may choose to decline the IARR allocati...

  • Incremental Loans Any Incremental Term Loans or Incremental Revolving Commitments effected through the establishment of one or more new term loans or new revolving credit commitments, as applicable, made on an Incremental Facility Closing Date (other than a Loan Increase) shall be designated a separate Class of Incremental Term Loans or Incremental Revolving Commitments, as applicable, for all purposes of this Agreement. On any Incremental Facility Closing Date on which any Incremental Term Commitments of any Class are effected (including through any Term Loan Increase), subject to the satisfaction of the terms and conditions in this Section 2.14, (i) each Incremental Term Lender of such Class shall make a Loan to the Borrower (an “Incremental Term Loan”) in an amount equal to its Incremental Term Commitment of such Class and (ii) each Incremental Term Lender of such Class shall become a Lender hereunder with respect to the Incremental Term Commitment of such Class and the Incremental Term Loans of such Class made pursuant thereto. On any Incremental Facility Closing Date on which any Incremental Revolving Commitments of any Class are effected through the establishment of one or more new revolving credit commitments (including through any Revolving Commitment Increase), subject to the satisfaction of the terms and conditions in this Section 2.14, (i) each Incremental Revolving Lender of such Class shall make its Commitment available to the Borrower (when borrowed, an “Incremental Revolving Loan” and collectively with any Incremental Term Loan, an “Incremental Loan”) in an amount equal to its Incremental Revolving Commitment of such Class and (ii) each Incremental Revolving Lender of such Class shall become a Lender hereunder with respect to the Incremental Revolving Commitment of such Class and the Incremental Revolving Loans of such Class made pursuant thereto.

  • Incremental Lenders Each notice from the Borrower pursuant to this Section shall set forth the requested amount and proposed terms of the relevant Incremental Increase. Incremental Increases may be provided by any existing Lender (but no existing Lender will have any obligation to make a portion of any Incremental Increase) or by any other Persons (each such Person referred to in this sentence that agrees to provide any portion of an Incremental Increase, an “Incremental Lender”); provided that the Administrative Agent, L/C Issuer and/or the Swing Line Lender, as applicable, shall have consented (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) to such Incremental Lender’s providing such Incremental Increases to the extent any such consent would be required under Section 10.06(b) for an assignment of Loans or Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable, to such Incremental Lender. At the time of sending such notice, the Borrower (in consultation with the Administrative Agent) shall specify the time period within which each Incremental Lender is requested to respond, which shall in no event be less than 10 Business Days from the date of delivery of such notice to the proposed Incremental Lenders (or such shorter period as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent and each Incremental Lender, in their sole discretion). Each proposed Incremental Lender may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, and shall notify the Administrative Agent within such time period whether it agrees, to provide an Incremental Increase and, if so, whether by an amount equal to, greater than or less than requested. Any Person not responding within such time period shall be deemed to have declined to provide an Incremental Increase.

  • Commitment Increase (i) On any date prior to the latest Termination Date, the Borrowers may increase the aggregate amount of the Commitments by an amount not less than $50,000,000 for any such increase but not more than $500,000,000 (the “Maximum Accordion Amount”) for all such increases (any such increase, a “Commitment Increase”) by designating one or more of the existing Lenders or one or more Affiliates thereof (each of which, in its sole discretion, may determine whether and to what degree to participate in such Commitment Increase) or one or more other Persons that at the time agree, in the case of any existing Lender, to increase its Commitment (an “Increasing Lender”) and, in the case of any other Person or an Affiliate of a Lender (an “Additional Lender”), to become a party to this Agreement; provided that (i) each Additional Lender shall be acceptable to the Administrative Agent, and each Increasing Lender and each Additional Lender shall be acceptable to the Fronting Banks, (ii) the allocations of the Commitment Increase among the Increasing Lenders shall be determined by the Administrative Agent in consultation with each Borrower, and (iii) the amount of the Commitment of each Additional Lender shall not be less than $5,000,000. The sum of the increases in the Commitments of the Increasing Lenders pursuant to this subsection (b) plus the Commitments of the Additional Lenders upon giving effect to the Commitment Increase shall not exceed the amount of the Commitment Increase. The Borrowers shall provide prompt notice of any proposed Commitment Increase pursuant to this Section 2.06(b) to the Administrative Agent, which shall promptly provide a copy of such notice to the Lenders and the Fronting Banks.

  • Incremental Facility Except as otherwise specifically set forth herein, all of the other terms and conditions applicable to such Incremental Facility shall be identical to the terms and conditions applicable to the Revolving Facility.

  • Incremental Term Loans The Borrower and any one or more Lenders (including any Person not previously a Lender hereunder who executes and delivers a joinder agreement executed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and such Lender, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to each of them), which Lenders are reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent (each such Lender, an “Incremental Term Loan Lender”), may agree, upon at least thirty (30) days’ prior notice to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period of time as the Administrative Agent may agree to in its sole discretion), that such Incremental Term Loan Lenders shall make one or more additional term loan credit facilities available to the Borrower under this Section 2.1.1(b) (each an “Incremental Term Loan Facility” and collectively, the “Incremental Term Loan Facilities”; each commitment thereunder an “Incremental Term Loan Commitment” and collectively, the “Incremental Term Loan Commitments”; and the loans thereunder, each an “Incremental Term Loan” and collectively, the “Incremental Term Loans”) on substantially the same terms and subject to substantially the same conditions as the Term Loans. Any Incremental Term Loan or Incremental Term Loan Commitment shall be documented by an amendment or supplement to, or a restatement of, this Agreement, setting forth the specific terms and conditions of the Incremental Term Loan Facility, which amendment, supplement or restatement shall be signed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and the Incremental Term Loan Lenders providing such Incremental Term Loan Commitments. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (i) the aggregate principal amount of all Incremental Term Loan Commitments shall not exceed the Maximum Incremental Amount; (ii) the Stated Maturity Date of any Incremental Term Loan shall be on or after the Stated Maturity Date for the Term A-1 Loans, determined as of the initial funding date for such Incremental Term Loans; (iii) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or would reasonably be expected to result after giving Pro Forma Effect to any Incremental Term Loan; (iv) the Borrower shall deliver a Compliance Certificate to the Administrative Agent evidencing compliance with the financial covenants set forth in Section 7.2.4 after giving Pro Forma Effect to any Incremental Term Loan; (v) the proceeds of any Incremental Term Loan shall be used solely for the purposes described in Section 4.10; (vi) to the extent Section 4.10 permits any proceeds of any Incremental Term Loan to be used to acquire any additional Real Property, each of the conditions set forth in Sections 5.2.1, 5.2.2, and 5.3 shall be fulfilled to the satisfaction of the Administrative Agent; (vii) the weighted average life of any Incremental Term Loan shall be equal to or greater than the remaining weighted average life of the Term A-1 Loans, determined as of the initial funding date for such Incremental Term Loan; (viii) to the extent that the applicable interest rate margin on any Incremental Term Loan exceeds by more than 0.25% the applicable interest rate margin for the Term A-3 Loans, determined as of the initial funding date for such Incremental Term Loan, (A) the applicable interest rate margin for the Term A-3 Loans shall be increased so that the applicable interest rate margin for such Incremental Term Loan does not exceed the applicable interest rate margin for the Term A-3 Loans by more than 0.25% and (B) the applicable interest rate margin for each of the other credit facilities existing on such date shall be increased by the same amount of basis points as the Term A-3 Loans are so increased, if any; (ix) any covenant or Event of Default applicable to any Incremental Term Loan that is more restrictive than the equivalent covenant or Event of Default set forth in this Agreement shall be deemed to be applicable to all Loans hereunder; (x) the aggregate of any original issue discount or upfront fees applicable to any such Incremental Term Loans shall not be more than 1% of the principal amount of such Incremental Term Loans; and (xi) the Borrower shall have delivered any modifications or additional Real Property Documents as the Administrative Agent shall have requested in its sole discretion pursuant to such Incremental Term Loans.

  • Incremental Term Loan Commitments (a) The Lead Borrower shall have the right, in consultation and coordination with the Administrative Agent as to all of the matters set forth below in this Section 2.15, but without requiring the consent of any of the Lenders, to request at any time and from time to time that one or more Lenders (and/or one or more other Persons which are Eligible Transferees and which will become Lenders) provide Incremental Term Loan Commitments to the Borrowers and, subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and in the relevant Incremental Term Loan Commitment Agreement, make Incremental Term Loans pursuant thereto; it being understood and agreed, however, that (i) no Lender shall be obligated to provide an Incremental Term Loan Commitment as a result of any such request by the Lead Borrower, (ii) any Lender (including any Eligible Transferee who will become a Lender) may so provide an Incremental Term Loan Commitment without the consent of any other Lender, (iii) each Tranche of Incremental Term Loan Commitments shall be denominated in U.S. Dollars, (iv) the amount of Incremental Term Loan Commitments made available pursuant to a given Incremental Term Loan Commitment Agreement shall be in a minimum aggregate amount for all Lenders which provide an Incremental Term Loan Commitment thereunder (including Eligible Transferees who will become Lenders) of at least $25,000,000, (v) the aggregate amount of all Incremental Term Loan Commitments provided pursuant to this Section 2.15 after the Closing Date and all Indebtedness incurred pursuant to Section 10.04(xxvii)(A) shall not exceed the sum of (x) $100,000,000 (the “Second Lien Fixed Dollar Incremental Amount”) less the aggregate amount of Indebtedness and commitments incurred under the First Lien Fixed Dollar Incremental Amount, plus (y) the sum of all voluntary prepayments of Term Loans, Refinancing Notes and Indebtedness incurred pursuant to Section 10.04(xxvii) that ranks pari passu with the Term Loans (limited, in the case of any voluntary prepayment in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.19 or Section 2.20 or similar provisions in the definitive documentation with respect to such Refinancing Notes or other Indebtedness, to the cash payment made by any Credit Party or Restricted Subsidiary therefor) (in each case other than with the proceeds of long-term Indebtedness (other than Indebtedness under the ABL Credit Agreement)) in each case prior to the date of incurrence of any such Incremental Term Loan Commitments plus (z) an unlimited amount so long as the Consolidated Senior Secured Net Leverage Ratio, determined on a Pro Forma Basis as of such date would not exceed 5.25 to 1.00; (vi) the proceeds of all Incremental Term Loans incurred by the Borrowers may be used for any purpose not prohibited under this Agreement, (vii) each Incremental Term Loan Commitment Agreement shall specifically designate, with the approval of the Administrative Agent, the Tranche of the Incremental Term Loan Commitments being provided thereunder (which Tranche shall be a new Tranche i.e., not the same as any existing Tranche of Incremental Term Loans, Incremental Term Loan Commitments or other Term Loans), unless the requirements of Section 2.15(c) are satisfied), (viii) if to be incurred as a new Tranche of Incremental Term Loans, such Incremental Term Loans shall have the same terms as each other Tranche of Term Loans as in effect immediately prior to the effectiveness of the relevant Incremental Term Loan Agreement, except as to purpose (which is subject to the requirements of preceding clause (vi)) and optional prepayment provisions and mandatory prepayment provisions (which are governed by Section 5.02; provided that each new Tranche of Incremental Term Loans shall be entitled to share in mandatory prepayments on a ratable basis with the other Tranches of Term Loans (unless the holders of the Incremental Term Loans of any Tranche agree to take a lesser share of any such prepayments)); provided, however, that (I) the maturity and amortization of such Tranche of Incremental Term Loans may differ, so long as such Tranche of Incremental Term Loans shall have (a) a Maturity Date of no earlier than the Latest Maturity Date as of the date such Indebtedness was incurred and (b) a Weighted Average Life to Maturity of no less than the Weighted Average Life to Maturity as then in effect for the Tranche of then outstanding Term Loans with the then longest Weighted Average Life to Maturity, (II) the Effective Yield applicable to such Tranche of Incremental Term Loans may differ from that applicable to the then outstanding Tranches of Term Loans, with the Effective Yield applicable thereto to be specified in the respective Incremental Term Loan Commitment Agreement; provided, however, that if the Effective Yield for any such Incremental Term Loans exceeds the Effective Yield then applicable to any then outstanding Initial Term Loans by more than 0.50% per annum, the Applicable Margins for all then outstanding Initial Term Loans shall be increased as of such date in accordance with the requirements of the definition of “Applicable Margin” and (III) such Tranche of Incremental Term Loans may have other terms (other than those described in preceding clauses (I) and (II)) that may differ from those of other Tranches of Term Loans, including, without limitation, as to the application of optional or voluntary prepayments among the Incremental Term Loans and the existing Term Loans and such other differences as may be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (ix) all Incremental Term Loans (and all interest, fees and other amounts payable thereon) incurred by the Borrowers shall be Obligations of the Borrowers under this Agreement and the other applicable Credit Documents and shall be secured by the Security Agreements, and guaranteed under each relevant Guaranty, on a pari passu basis with all other Term Loans secured by the Security Agreement and guaranteed under each such Guaranty, (x) each Lender (including any Eligible Transferee who will become a Lender) agreeing to provide an Incremental Term Loan Commitment pursuant to an Incremental Term Loan Commitment Agreement shall, subject to the satisfaction of the relevant conditions set forth in this Agreement, make Incremental Term Loans under the Tranche specified in such Incremental Term Loan Commitment Agreement as provided in Section 2.01(b) and such Term Loans shall thereafter be deemed to be Incremental Term Loans under such Tranche for all purposes of this Agreement and the other applicable Credit Documents and (xi) all Incremental Term Loan Commitment Requirements are satisfied.

  • Commitment Increases (a) At any time after the Closing Date, provided that no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Borrowers may request an increase of the aggregate Commitments by notice to the Administrative Agent in writing of the amount (the “Offered Increase Amount”) of such proposed increase (such notice, a “Commitment Increase Notice”). Any such Commitment Increase Notice must offer each Bank the opportunity to subscribe for its pro rata share of the increased Commitments; provided, however, the Borrowers may, with the consent of the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), without offering to each Bank the opportunity to subscribe for its pro rata share of the increased Commitments, offer to any existing Bank or any bank or other financial institution that is not an existing Bank the opportunity to provide a new Commitment pursuant to paragraph (b) below if the aggregate amount of all Commitments made hereunder pursuant to this proviso which will be in effect when such new Commitment becomes effective does not exceed $500,000,000 subject to subsection 2.20(f). If any portion of the increased Commitments offered to the Banks as contemplated in the immediately preceding sentence is not subscribed for by the Banks, the Borrowers may, with the consent of the Administrative Agent as to any bank or financial institution that is not at such time a Bank (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), offer to any existing Bank or to one or more additional banks or financial institutions the opportunity to provide all or a portion of such unsubscribed portion of the increased Commitments pursuant to paragraph (b) below. No Bank has an obligation to increase its Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.20 except in its sole discretion.

  • Increase in Revolving Commitments The Borrowers shall have the right to request increases in the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments by providing written notice to the Administrative Agent, which notice shall be irrevocable once given; provided, however, that after giving effect to any such increases the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments shall not exceed $200,000,000.00. Each such increase in the Revolving Commitments must be an aggregate minimum amount of $10,000,000 and integral multiples of $5,000,000 in excess thereof or in such other amounts as approved by Administrative Agent in its sole discretion. The Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrowers, shall manage all aspects of the syndication of such increase in the Revolving Commitments, including decisions as to the selection of the existing Lenders and/or other banks, financial institutions and other institutional lenders to be approached with respect to such increase and the allocations of the increase in the Revolving Commitments among such existing Lenders and/or other banks, financial institutions and other institutional lenders. No Lender shall be obligated in any way whatsoever to increase its Revolving Commitment or provide a new Revolving Commitment, and any new Lender becoming a party to this Agreement in connection with any such requested increase must be an Eligible Assignee. If a new Lender becomes a party to this Agreement, or if any existing Lender is increasing its Revolving Commitment, such Lender shall on the date it becomes a Lender hereunder (or in the case of an existing Lender, increases its Revolving Commitment) (and as a condition thereto) purchase from the other Lenders its Commitment Percentage (determined with respect to the Lenders’ respective Revolving Commitments and after giving effect to the increase of the Revolving Commitments) of any outstanding Revolving Loans, by making available to the Administrative Agent for the account of such other Lenders, in same day funds, an amount equal to (A) the portion of the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loans to be purchased by such Lender, plus (B) the aggregate amount of payments previously made by the other Revolving Lenders under Section 2.4.(j) that have not been repaid, plus (C) interest accrued and unpaid to and as of such date on such portion of the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loans. The Borrowers shall pay to the Revolving Lenders amounts payable, if any, to such Revolving Lenders under Section 5.4 as a result of the prepayment of any such Revolving Loans. Effecting the increase of the Revolving Commitments under this Section is subject to the following conditions precedent: (x) no Default or Event of Default shall be in existence on the effective date of such increase, (y) the representations and warranties made or deemed made by the Borrowers and each other Loan Party in any Loan Document to which any of them is a party shall be true and correct in all material respects (except in the case of a representation or warranty qualified by materiality, in which case such representation or warranty shall be true and correct in all respects) on the effective date of such increase except to the extent that such representations and warranties expressly relate solely to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties shall have been true and correct in all material respects (except in the case of a representation or warranty qualified by materiality, in which case such representation or warranty shall be true and correct in all respects) on and as of such earlier date) and except for changes in factual circumstances specifically and expressly permitted hereunder, and (z) the Administrative Agent shall have received each of the following, in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent: (i) if not previously delivered to the Administrative Agent, copies certified by the Secretary or Assistant Secretary of (A) all partnership and/or member, or other necessary action taken by the Borrowers to authorize such increase and (B) all corporate or other necessary action taken by the Guarantor authorizing the guaranty of such increase; and (ii) an opinion of counsel to the Borrowers and the Guarantor, and addressed to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders covering such matters as reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent; and (iii) new Revolving Notes executed by the Borrowers, payable to any new Revolving Lenders and replacement Revolving Notes executed by the Borrowers, payable to any existing Revolving Lenders increasing their Revolving Commitments, in the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitment at the time of the effectiveness of the applicable increase in the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments. In connection with any increase in the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.19 any Lender becoming a party hereto shall execute such documents and agreements as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request.

  • Incremental Commitments (a) The Borrower may, by written notice to the Administrative Agent from time to time, request Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments, as applicable, in an amount not to exceed the Incremental Amount available at the time such Incremental Commitments are established (or, at the option of the Borrower, at the time such Incremental Commitments are committed to) from one or more Incremental Term Lenders and/or Incremental Revolving Facility Lenders (which may include any existing Lender) willing to provide such Incremental Term Loans and/or Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments, as the case may be, in their own discretion; provided, that each Incremental Revolving Facility Lender providing a commitment to make revolving loans shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent and, to the extent the same would be required for an assignment under Section 9.04, the Issuing Bank and the Swingline Lender (which approvals shall not be unreasonably withheld) unless such Incremental Revolving Facility Lender is a Revolving Facility Lender, an Affiliate of a Revolving Facility Lender or an Approved Fund of a Revolving Facility Lender. Such notice shall set forth (i) the amount of the Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments being requested (which shall be in minimum increments of $5,000,000 and a minimum amount of $10,000,000, or equal to the remaining Incremental Amount or, in each case, such lesser amount approved by the Administrative Agent), (ii) the date on which such Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments are requested to become effective, (iii) in the case of Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments, whether such Incremental Revolving Facility Commitments are to be (x) commitments to make additional Revolving Facility Loans on the same terms as the Initial Revolving Loans or (y) commitments to make revolving loans with pricing terms, final maturity dates, participation in mandatory prepayments or commitment reductions and/or other terms different from the Initial Revolving Loans (“Other Revolving Loans”) and (iv) in the case of Incremental Term Loan Commitments, whether such Incremental Term Loan Commitments are to be (x) commitments to make term loans with terms identical to Term B Loans or (y) commitments to make term loans with pricing, maturity, amortization, participation in mandatory prepayments and/or other terms different from the Term B Loans (“Other Term Loans”).

  • Initial Borrowing The obligations of the Lenders to fund the initial Borrowing shall be subject to the prior or concurrent satisfaction of each of the conditions precedent set forth in this Section 5.1.
