Successor Agent and Co Agents 13.8.1. Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Agent as provided below, Agent may resign at any time by giving at least 30 days written notice thereof to each Lender and Borrower Representative. Upon receipt of any notice of such resignation, the Required Lenders, after prior consultation with (but without having to obtain consent of) each Lender, shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent which shall be (i) a Lender, (ii) a United States based affiliate of a Lender, or (iii) a commercial bank that is organized under the laws of the United States or of any State thereof and has a combined capital surplus of at least $500,000,000 and, provided no Default or Event of Default then exists, is reasonably acceptable to Borrower Representative (and for purposes hereof, any successor to BofA shall be deemed acceptable to Borrower Representative). If no successor agent is appointed prior to the effective date of the resignation of Agent, then Agent may appoint, after consultation with Lenders and Borrower Representative, a successor agent from among Lenders. Upon the acceptance by a successor Agent of an appointment to serve as Agent hereunder, such successor Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent without further act, deed or conveyance, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder but shall continue to enjoy the benefits of the indemnification set forth in Sections 13.6 and 15.2. After any retiring Agent’s resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Section 13 (including the provisions of Section 13.6) shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Agent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, any successor by merger or acquisition of the stock or assets of BofA shall continue to be Agent hereunder without further act on the part of the parties hereto unless such successor shall resign in accordance with the provisions hereof.
Amendment of Administrative Agent’s Duties, Etc No amendment, waiver or consent unless in writing and signed by the Administrative Agent, in addition to the Lenders required hereinabove to take such action, shall affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents. No waiver shall extend to or affect any obligation not expressly waived or impair any right consequent thereon and any amendment, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose set forth therein. No course of dealing or delay or omission on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any right shall operate as a waiver thereof or otherwise be prejudicial thereto. Any Event of Default occurring hereunder shall continue to exist until such time as such Event of Default is waived in writing in accordance with the terms of this Section, notwithstanding any attempted cure or other action by the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Person subsequent to the occurrence of such Event of Default. Except as otherwise explicitly provided for herein or in any other Loan Document, no notice to or demand upon the Borrower shall entitle the Borrower to other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.

The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent or attorney-in-fact may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties.

The Administrative Agent’s Duties (a) The powers conferred on the Administrative Agent hereunder are solely to protect the Secured Parties’ interest in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers. Except for the safe custody of any Collateral in its possession and the accounting for moneys actually received by it hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall have no duty as to any Collateral, as to ascertaining or taking action with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders or other matters relative to any Collateral, whether or not any Secured Party has or is deemed to have knowledge of such matters, or as to the taking of any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties or any other rights pertaining to any Collateral. The Administrative Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any Collateral in its possession if such Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which it accords its own property.
