    to the part of the relevant Receivables to which the Assignor is entitled to, the assignment of the other part shall be effective upon complete termination of the extended retention of title.
7.2   If and to the extent that the Receivables assigned pursuant to this Agreement arise from the sale of receivables of the Assignor pursuant to any factoring arrangement which are subject to extended retention of title arrangements (verlängerter Eigentumsvorbehalt), the assignment hereunder shall only become effective upon the complete satisfaction of the receivables which are secured by the respective extended retention of title.

8.   CHECKS AND BILLS OF EXCHANGE

- 10 -


 

10.   ENFORCEMENT
 
10.1   If (i) an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing and (ii) any of the Obligations has become due and payable, then the Collateral Agent is entitled to revoke the Authorisation, notify the debtors, enforce its rights under this Agreement and arrange for the collection of the Receivables in its own name and for its own account or for the sale of the Receivables.
10.2   The Collateral Agent will notify the Assignor in writing at least 5 (five) business days prior to the enforcement of any assignment pursuant hereto. No such notice shall be required if (i) the Assignor has generally ceased to make payments, (ii) an application for the institution of insolvency proceedings is filed by or against the Assignor or (iii) the Collateral Agent has reasonable grounds to believe that observance of the notice period would adversely affect the legitimate interests (berechtigte Interessen) of the Collateral Agent.
10.3   To the extent that the Authorisation is revoked, the Collateral Agent may request that all documents relating to the Receivables be handed over to it and the Assignor hereby agrees to promptly comply with any such request. In the case of checks and bills of exchange, the Assignor hereby further agrees to endorse such documents in blank and to deliver them to the Collateral Agent as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event upon request by the Collateral Agent.
10.4   While being entitled to enforce the security interest created hereunder in accordance with sub-Clause 10.1 the Collateral Agent may collect the Receivables in total or in part to the extent necessary to satisfy any outstanding Obligations, it being understood that the Collateral Agent shall apply the proceeds of such realisation towards the Obligations in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement.
10.5   While being entitled to enforce the security interest created hereunder in accordance with sub-Clause 10.1 the Collateral Agent may request the Assignor to collect the Receivables for and on behalf of the Collateral Agent and in accordance with the Collateral Agent’s instruction. The Assignor shall promptly comply with such request.
10.6   If the Collateral Agent collects any Receivables pursuant to sub-Clause 10.4 hereof, it may take all measures and enter into all agreements with such debtors which it considers to be expedient. In particular, the Collateral Agent may grant discounts or indulgence to any debtors and/or enter into settlement agreements in relation to existing Receivables at any time.
10.7   Notwithstanding sub-Clause 10.4, the Collateral Agent may, in its sole discretion, determine which of several security interests (created under this or other security agreements) shall be used to satisfy the Obligations.
10.8   Given the non-accessory nature of this security, the Assignor has no defences of revocation and set-off and no defences based on defences any Grantor might have against the Obligations. The Collateral Agent is not required to proceed against or enforce any other rights or security before enforcing the security created hereunder.
10.9   The Assignor shall not at any time before, on or after an enforcement of the security created hereunder and as a result of the Assignor entering into this Agreement, be

- 11 -

11.2   Besides an enforcement in respect of the Unlimited Enforcement Amount applicable to the Assignor pursuant to Clause 11.1 above, the Collateral Agent shall not be entitled to enforce the rights created under this Agreement against the Assignor if and to the extent that:

  (b)   the enforcement would have the effect of (x) reducing the Assignor’s net assets (Reinvermögen) (the “Net Assets”) to an amount of less than its stated share capital (Stammkapital) or, if the Net Assets are already an amount of less than its stated share capital, of causing such amount to be further reduced and (y) would thereby affect the assets required for the obligatory preservation of the Assignor’s stated share capital (Stammkapital) according to section 30, 31 German Limited Liability Companies Act (Gesetz betreffend die Gesellschaften mit beschränkter Haftung) provided that the amount of the stated share capital to be taken into consideration shall be the amount registered in the commercial register at the date hereof, and any increase of the stated share capital registered after the date of this Agreement shall only be taken into account if such increase has been effected with the prior written consent of the Agent.
11.3   The Net Assets shall be calculated as an amount equal to the sum of the values of the Assignor’s assets (consisting of all assets which correspond to the items set forth in section 266 sub-section(2) A, B and C of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch) less the aggregate amount of the Assignor’s liabilities (consisting of all liabilities and liability reserves which correspond to the items set forth in section 266 sub-section(3) B, C and D of the German Commercial Code), save that:

- 12 -


 

  (a)   any asset that is shown in the balance sheet with a book value (Buchwert) that is significantly lower than the market value of such asset and that is not necessary for the Assignor’s business (nicht betriebsnotwendig) shall be taken into account with its market value;
 
  (b)   obligations under loans provided to the Assignor by any member of the Group or any other affiliated company shall not be taken into account as liabilities as far as such loans are subordinated by law or by contract at least to the claims of the unsubordinated creditors of the Assignor; and
 
  (c)   obligations under loans or other contractual liabilities incurred by the Assignor in violation of the provisions of the Credit Documents shall not be taken into account as liabilities.
    The Net Assets shall be determined in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles applicable from time to time in Germany (Grundsätze ordnungsmäßiger Buchführung) and be based on the same principles that were applied by the Assignor in the preparation of its most recent annual balance sheet (Jahresbilanz).
    It being understood that the assets of the Assignor will be assessed at liquidation values (Liquidationswerte) if the managing directors of the Assignor at the time they prepare the Management Determination (as defined below) are, due to factual or legal circumstances at that time, in their opinion not able to make a positive prognosis as to whether the business of the Assignor can carry on as a going concern (positive Fortführungsprognose), in particular when the security created under this Agreement is enforced.
11.4   The limitations set out in Clause 11.2 above shall only apply if and to the extent that:
  (a)   without undue delay, but not later than within 5 business days, after receipt of a notification by the Collateral Agent of its intention to enforce any of the rights created under this Agreement (the “Notice”), the Assignor has confirmed in writing to the Collateral Agent (x) to what extent such rights are up-stream or cross-stream security as described in Clause 11.2 above and (y) which amount of such up-stream or cross-stream security cannot be enforced as it would cause the Net Assets of the Assignor to fall below its stated share capital (taking into account the adjustments set out in Clause 11.3 above) and such confirmation is supported by evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent (the “Management Determination”) and the Collateral Agent has not contested this and argued that no or a lesser amount would be necessary to maintain the Assignor’s stated share capital; or
 
  (b)   within 20 business days from the date the Collateral Agent has contested the Management Determination, the Collateral Agent receives from the Assignor an up to date balance sheet prepared by a firm of auditors of international standard and reputation (the “Determining Auditors”) which shows the value of the Assignor’s Net Assets (the “Balance Sheet”). The Balance Sheet shall be prepared in accordance with the principles set out in Clause 11.3 above, provided that the final sentence of Clause 11.3 above shall not apply unless the Determining Auditors have in an independent assessment determined that

- 13 -


 

      the assets of the Assignor should be evaluated at liquidation values (Liquidationswerte) in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable from time to time in Germany (Grundsätze ordnungsgemäßer Buchführung) and shall contain further information (in reasonable detail) relating to items to be adjusted pursuant to Clause 11.3 above. If the Assignor fails to deliver a Balance Sheet within the aforementioned time period, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to enforce the rights created under this Agreement irrespective of the limitations set out in Clause 11.2 above.
11.5   If the Collateral Agent disagrees with the Balance Sheet, it shall be entitled to enforce the rights created under this Agreement up to the amount which, according to the Balance Sheet, can be enforced in compliance with the limitations set out in Clause 11.2 above. In relation to any additional amounts for which the Assignor is liable under this Agreement, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to further pursue their claims (if any) and the Assignor shall be entitled to prove that this amount is necessary for maintaining its stated share capital (calculated as of the date the Collateral Agent has given notice of its intention to enforce the security created under this Agreement).
11.6   No reduction of the amount enforceable under this Clause 11 will prejudice the right of the Collateral Agent to continue enforcing the rights created under this Agreement (subject always to the operation of the limitations set out above at the time of such enforcement) until full satisfaction to the claims secured.
 
12.   BOOKKEEPING AND DATA-PROCESSING
12.1   The Assignor hereby assigns to the Collateral Agent, who accepts such assignment, any right it has against any third party (in particular any bookkeeping firm or tax consultant) in respect of the return of any proof or documents which the Assignor has handed over to such third party and which are necessary to identify the Receivables. The Collateral Agent will only make use of such right if an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing or if the Assignor has not complied with a request of the Collateral Agent to provide lists of Receivables following the occurrence of a Default which is continuing, or, as the case may be, an Enforcement Event which is continuing in accordance with Clause 5.1. The Assignor undertakes to instruct such third party to provide the Collateral Agent upon demand in accordance with the preceding sentence with such information, proof and documents which are necessary to check, assess or enforce the Receivables.
12.2   If an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing, the Assignor shall allow the Collateral Agent access to any electronic data-processing system, including peripheral equipment, in which data concerning the Receivables or any part thereof have been stored. Moreover, the Assignor shall provide any assistance required to the Collateral Agent (including by making software operators available). The Assignor hereby assigns to the Collateral Agent, who accepts such assignment, all its rights against any third party which handles the electronic processing of data concerning the Receivables and undertakes to instruct such third party, upon a respective demand of the Collateral Agent if an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing, to handle the processing of data for the Collateral Agent as it did for the Assignor

- 14 -


 

    provided that the Assignor shall continue to be given access to any data it requires in its ordinary course of business.
 
12.3   The Collateral Agent authorises the Assignor to exercise the rights assigned to the Collateral Agent pursuant to sub-Clause 12.1 and 12.2 above at all times if an Enforcement Event is not continuing.
 
13.   UNDERTAKINGS OF THE ASSIGNOR
 
    Unless otherwise permitted by the Principal Finance Documents, during the term of this Agreement, the Assignor undertakes to the Collateral Agent:
 
13.1   subject to Clause 9 of this Agreement, to refrain from any acts or omissions, the purpose or effect of which is or would be the material dilution of the value of the Receivables or the Receivables ceasing to be assignable or subjecting any Receivable to any law other than German law other than in the Assignor’s ordinary course of business;
 
13.2   to inform the Collateral Agent without undue delay in writing of any attachment (Pfändung) over any of the Receivables or part thereof and any third parties bringing claims in respect of any of the Receivables or part thereof or any other measures which would impair or jeopardize the Collateral Agent’s rights relating to any Receivable or materially impair its value, such notice to be accompanied by any documents the Collateral Agent might need to defend itself against any claim by a third party. In the event of an attachment, the Assignor undertakes to forward to the Collateral Agent without undue delay a copy of the attachment order (Pfändungsbeschluß), any transfer order (Überweisungsbeschluß) and all other documents necessary or expedient for a defence against such attachment. The Assignor shall inform the attaching creditor of the Collateral Agent’s security interests without undue delay;
 
14.   POWER OF ATTORNEY
 
    The Assignor, by way of security for its obligations under this Agreement, irrevocably appoints the Collateral Agent to be its attorney (Stellvertreter) (and the Collateral Agent may delegate that power on such terms as it sees fit) to do anything which the Assignor is required to do under this Agreement but has failed to do and to notify the debtors of the Receivables of the assignment of the Receivables in behalf of the Assignor, provided that the debtors which are not debtors of Intercompany Loan Receivables may only be notified if an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing. For this purpose the Assignor relieves the Collateral Agent from the restrictions set out in Section 181 of the German Civil Code. The Collateral Agent shall only make use of this authorisation in respect of any obligation of the Assignor under this Agreement which is required for the creation, perfection and enforcement of the security interest to be created hereunder, if the Assignor has not complied with such obligations imposed on the Assignor within 10 business days of being notified of such failure to comply (with a copy of such notice being sent to the Grantors’ Agent) and being requested to comply or if an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing. The Collateral Agent shall not be obliged to exercise the powers conferred upon it by the Assignor under this Clause 14 unless and until it shall have been (i)

- 15 -


 

    instructed to do so in accordance with the Principal Finance Documents and (ii) indemnified and/or secured and/or prefunded to its satisfaction.
 
15.   DELEGATION
    The Collateral Agent shall have full power to delegate (either generally or specifically) the powers, authorities and discretions conferred on it by this Agreement (including the power of attorney in Clause 14) on such terms and conditions as it shall see fit. The Collateral Agent shall only remain liable for diligently selecting and providing initial instructions to such delegate.
 
16.   INDEMNITY
    To the extent set out in the First Lien Intercreditor Credit Agreement, the Assignor shall, notwithstanding any release or discharge of all or any part of the security, indemnify the Collateral Agent, its agents its attorneys and any delegate against any action, proceeding, claims, losses, liabilities, damages, expenses, demands, taxes, losses and costs which it may sustain as a consequence of any breach by the Assignor of the provisions of this Agreement, the exercise or purported exercise of any of the rights and powers conferred on them by this Agreement or otherwise relating to the Receivables.
 
17.   NO LIABILITY
    Except to the extent provided in the Principal Finance Documents, none of the Collateral Agent, its nominee(s) or agent(s) or delegate(s) shall be liable by reason of (a) taking any action permitted by this Agreement or (b) any neglect or default in connection with the assets and rights subject to the security interest created hereunder, save in respect of any loss or damage which is suffered as a result of wilful misconduct (Vorsatz) or gross negligence (grobe Fahrlässigkeit) by the Collateral Agent, its nominee(s) or agent(s) or delegate(s), or (c) the enforcement or realisation of all or any part of the security interest created hereunder.
 
18.   DURATION AND INDEPENDENCE
18.1   This Agreement shall create a continuing security and no change, amendment, or supplement whatsoever in the Credit Documents or in any document or agreement relating to any of the Credit Documents shall affect the validity or the scope of this Agreement nor the obligations which are imposed on the Assignor pursuant to it.
 
18.2   This Agreement is independent from any other security or guarantee which may have been or will be given to the Secured Parties or the Collateral Agent. None of such other security shall prejudice, or shall be prejudiced by, or shall be merged in any way with this Agreement.
18.3   Waiving Section 418 of the German Civil Code (applied by analogy), the Assignor hereby agrees that the security created hereunder shall not be affected by any transfer or assumption of the Obligations to, or by, any third party.

- 16 -


 

19.   RELEASE OF SECURITY (SICHERHEITENFREIGABE)
19.1   Upon complete and irrevocable satisfaction of the Obligations, the Collateral Agent (as instructed in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement) will as soon as reasonably practicable, at the cost and expense of the Assignor, reassign to the Assignor the Receivables and surrender the excess proceeds, if any, resulting from any realisation thereof. The Collateral Agent will, however, transfer any Receivable or excess proceeds to a third person if so required by law.
19.2   At any time when the total value of the aggregate security granted by the Assignor and the other Grantor to secure the Obligations (the “Security”) which can be expected to be realised in the event of an enforcement of the Security (realisierbarer Wert) exceeds 110% of the Obligations (the “Limit”), the Collateral Agent shall on demand of the Assignor release such part of the Security (Sicherheitenfreigabe) as the Collateral Agent may in its reasonable discretion (as instructed in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement) determine so as to reduce the realisable value of the Security to the Limit.
19.3   The Collateral Agent (as instructed in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement) will as soon as reasonably practicable declare in writing the release of the security created hereunder and reassign the Receivables to the Assignor in accordance with, and to the extent required by, the Intercreditor Arrangements.
 
20.   PARTIAL INVALIDITY; WAIVER
20.1   If at any time, any one or more of the provisions hereof is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under the law of any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent necessary without affecting or impairing the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof or of such provisions in any other jurisdiction. The invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision shall be deemed replaced with a valid, legal or enforceable provision which comes as close as possible to the original intent of the parties and the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision. Should a gap (Regelungslücke) become evident in this Agreement, such gap shall, without affecting or impairing the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof, be deemed to be filled with such provision as comes as close as possible to the original intent of the parties.
20.2   No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of the Collateral Agent, any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy prevent any further or other exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. The rights and remedies provided hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.
 
21.   AMENDMENTS
    Changes and amendments to this Agreement including this Clause 21 shall be made in writing.
