Quoted Rate At a fixed rate per annum to be quoted by Agent in its sole discretion in each instance. Under this option, rates may be fixed on such balances and for such periods, as may be agreeable to Agent in its sole discretion in each instance, provided that: (1) the minimum fixed period shall be 30 days; (2) amounts may be fixed in increments of $100,000.00 or multiples thereof; and (3) the maximum number of fixes in place at any one time shall be five.
LIBOR Rate The election of LIBOR Rates shall be subject to the following terms and requirements:
Base Rate The greater of (a) the fluctuating annual rate of interest announced from time to time by the Agent at the Agent’s Head Office as its “prime rate”, (b) one half of one percent (0.5%) above the Federal Funds Effective Rate, and (c) LIBOR for an Interest Period of one (1) month plus one percent (1.0%). The Base Rate is a reference rate used by the lender acting as Agent in determining interest rates on certain loans and is not intended to be the lowest rate of interest charged by the lender acting as the Agent or any other lender on any extension of credit to any debtor. Any change in the rate of interest payable hereunder resulting from a change in the Base Rate shall become effective as of 12:01 a.m. on the Business Day on which such change in the Base Rate becomes effective, without notice or demand of any kind.
Eurodollar Rate For any Interest Period with respect to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, the rate of interest equal to (i) the arithmetic average of the rates per annum (rounded upwards to the nearest 1/16 of one percent) of the rate at which BKB's Eurodollar Lending Office is offered Dollar deposits two Eurodollar Business Days prior to the beginning of such Interest Period in the interbank eurodollar market where the eurodollar and foreign currency and exchange operations of such Eurodollar Lending Office are customarily conducted, for delivery on the first day of such Interest Period for the number of days comprised therein and in an amount comparable to the amount of the Eurodollar Rate Loan of BKB to which such Interest Period applies, divided by (ii) a number equal to 1.00 minus the Eurocurrency Reserve Rate, if applicable. EURODOLLAR RATE LOANS. Loans bearing interest calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate.
LIBOR Borrower may prepay principal on any portion of this Note which bears interest determined in relation to LIBOR at any time and in the minimum amount of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00); provided however, that if the outstanding principal balance of such portion of this Note is less than said amount, the minimum prepayment amount shall be the entire outstanding principal balance thereof. In consideration of Bank providing this prepayment option to Borrower, or if any such portion of this Note shall become due and payable at any time prior to the last day of the Fixed Rate Term applicable thereto by acceleration or otherwise, Borrower shall pay to Bank immediately upon demand a fee which is the sum of the discounted monthly differences for each month from the month of prepayment through the month in which such Fixed Rate Term matures, calculated as follows for each such month:
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.
Alternate Rate of Interest; Illegality (a) If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Borrowing:
Alternative Rate of Interest Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 3.03(a) above, if the Administrative Agent has made the determination (such determination to be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances described in Section 3.03(a)(i) or (a)(ii) have arisen and that such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) any applicable interest rate specified herein is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in the syndicated loan market in the applicable currency or (iii) the applicable supervisor or administrator (if any) of any applicable interest rate specified herein or any Governmental Authority having, or purporting to have, jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which any applicable interest rate specified herein shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans in the syndicated loan market in the applicable currency, then the Administrative Agent may, to the extent practicable (in consultation with the Borrower and as determined by the Administrative Agent to be generally in accordance with similar situations in other transactions in which it is serving as administrative agent or otherwise consistent with market practice generally), establish a replacement interest rate (the “Replacement Rate”), in which case, the Replacement Rate shall, subject to the next two sentences, replace such applicable interest rate for all purposes under the Loan Documents unless and until (A) an event described in Section 3.03(a)(i), (a)(ii), (b)(i), (b)(ii) or (c)(iii) occurs with respect to the Replacement Rate or (B) the Required Lenders (directly, or through the Administrative Agent) notify the Borrower that the Replacement Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding the Loans bearing interest at the Replacement Rate; provided that if such determined rate shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for each Loan bearing interest at the Replacement Rate that has not been identified by the Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement as being subject to a Specified Swap Contract that provides a hedge against interest rate risk. In connection with the establishment and application of the Replacement Rate, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be amended solely with the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 3.03
Calculation of Reference Bank Rate (a) Subject to paragraph (b) below, if LIBOR is to be determined on the basis of a Reference Bank Rate but a Reference Bank does not supply a quotation by the Specified Time, the Reference Bank Rate shall be calculated on the basis of the quotations of the remaining Reference Banks.
Alternate Base Rate Loans During such periods as Revolving Loans shall be comprised of Alternate Base Rate Loans, each such Alternate Base Rate Loan shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the sum of the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Percentage; and
