(b)           Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Extended Revolving Lender severally agrees to make Extended Revolving Loans to the Borrower from time to time during the Extended Revolving Availability Period, ratably in accordance with its Pro Rata Share (based on its Extended Revolving Commitment and the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount), in an aggregate principal amount outstanding at any time that will not result in (a) such Lender’s Extended Revolving Credit Exposure exceeding its Extended Revolving Commitment or (b) the sum of the aggregate Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Extended Revolving Lenders exceeding the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount.  During the Extended Revolving Availability Period, the Borrower shall be entitled to borrow, prepay and reborrow Extended Revolving Loans in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement; provided, that the Borrower may not borrow or reborrow should there exist a Default or Event of Default.
 
(c)           No Non-Extended Revolving Loans may be incurred after the Fourth Restatement Date unless the Extended Revolving Credit Exposure is equal to the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount (after giving effect to the issuance of any Letter of Credit or incurrence of any Extended Revolving Loans to be made contemporaneously with such Non-Extended Revolving Loans).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) if and to the extent that at any time there is insufficient Availability under the Extended Revolving Commitments to permit the issuance of a Letter of Credit that the Borrower desires to have issued, the Borrower may request, and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, receive a Borrowing of Non-Extended Revolving Loans in an amount that will permit the repayment of outstanding Extended Revolving Loans in an amount that will create sufficient Availability under the Extended Revolving Commitments to permit the issuance of such Letter of Credit, and (ii) if and to the extent that at any time there is insufficient Availability under the Extended Revolving Commitments to permit full utilization of the Swingline Commitment, the Borrower may request and, subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, receive a Borrowing of Non-Extended Revolving Loans in an amount that will permit the repayment of outstanding Extended Revolving Loans in an amount that will create sufficient Availability under the Extended Revolving Commitments to permit the requested utilization of the Swingline Commitment.  Each such request for Non-Extended Revolving Loans shall be made pursuant to Section 2.3.
 
Section 2.3 Procedure for Revolving Borrowings.
 
(a) The Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each Revolving Borrowing substantially in the form of Exhibit 2.3 attached hereto (a “Notice of Revolving Borrowing”) (x) prior to 12:00 noon on the requested date of each Base Rate Borrowing and (y) prior to 2:00 p.m. three (3) Business Days prior to the requested date of each Eurodollar Borrowing. Each Notice of Revolving Borrowing shall be irrevocable and shall specify: (i) the aggregate principal amount of such Borrowing, (ii) the date of such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day), (iii) the allocation of such Borrowing between Non-Extended Revolving Commitments and Extended Revolving Commitments pursuant to Section 2.2(c), (iv) the Type of Revolving Loans comprising such Borrowing and (v) in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, the duration of the initial Interest Period applicable thereto (subject to the provisions of the definition of Interest Period). Each Revolving Borrowing shall consist entirely of Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans, as the Borrower may request. The aggregate principal amount of each Revolving Eurodollar Borrowing shall be not less than $2,000,000 or a larger multiple of $1,000,000, and the aggregate principal amount of each Revolving Base Rate Borrowing shall not be less than $1,000,000 or a larger multiple of $100,000; provided, that Revolving Base Rate Loans made pursuant to Section 2.5 or Section 2.24(d) may be made in lesser amounts as provided therein. At no time shall the total number of Eurodollar Borrowings outstanding at any time exceed twelve. Promptly following the receipt of a Notice of Revolving Borrowing in accordance herewith, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender with a Commitment in such Tranche of the details thereof and the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Loan to be made as part of the requested Revolving Borrowing.
 
(b) To the extent that Non-Extended Revolving Loans are outstanding and Availability under the Extended Revolving Commitments exceeds the unused Swingline Commitment, then the Borrower will, within five (5) Business Days after receipt of a request from the Administrative Agent to do so, and pursuant to Sections 2.2 and Section 2.3, request that the Extended Revolving Lenders make Extended Revolving Loans in an amount not less than the amount by which Availability under the Extended Revolving Commitments exceeds the unused Swingline Commitment (the “True-Up Loan Amount”).  To the extent of the True-Up Loan Amount, the proceeds of such Extended Revolving Loans will be used to repay Non-Extended Revolving Loans in a manner that does not result in any amounts being due and payable pursuant to Section 2.20.
 
Section 2.4 Swingline Commitment. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Swingline Lender agrees to make Swingline Loans to the Borrower, from time to time during the Extended Revolving Availability Period, in an aggregate principal amount outstanding at any time not to exceed the lesser of (i) the Swingline Commitment then in effect and (ii) the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount less the aggregate Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Extended Revolving Lenders immediately prior to giving effect to such Swingline Loan; provided, that the Swingline Lender shall not be required to make a Swingline Loan to refinance an outstanding Swingline Loan. The Borrower shall be entitled to borrow, repay and reborrow Swingline Loans in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
 
Section 2.5 Procedure for Swingline Borrowing; Etc.
 
(a) The Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each Swingline Borrowing (“Notice of Swingline Borrowing”) prior to 2:00 p.m. on the requested date of each Swingline Borrowing, unless such Swingline Borrowing is a Eurodollar Loan and in such case the request shall be three Business Days prior to such Eurodollar Borrowing. Each Notice of Swingline Borrowing shall be irrevocable and shall specify: (i) the principal amount of such Swingline Loan, (ii) the date of such Swingline Loan (which shall be a Business Day) and the applicable Interest Period if it is a Eurodollar Loan and (iii) the account of the Borrower to which the proceeds of such Swingline Loan should be credited. The Administrative Agent will promptly advise the Swingline Lender, of each Notice of Swingline Borrowing. Each Swingline Loan shall accrue interest at the Swingline Rate.  The aggregate principal amount of each Swingline Loan shall be not less than $100,000 or a larger multiple of $50,000, or such other minimum amounts agreed to by the Swingline Lender and the Borrower. The Swingline Lender will make the proceeds of each Swingline Loan available to the Borrower in Dollars in immediately available funds at the account specified by the Borrower in the applicable Notice of Swingline Borrowing not later than 4:00 p.m. on the requested date of such Swingline Loan. The Administrative Agent will notify the Lenders on a quarterly basis if any Swingline Loans occurred during such quarter.
 
(b) The Swingline Lender, at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion, may, on behalf of the Borrower (which hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the Swingline Lender to act on its behalf), give a Notice of Revolving Borrowing to the Administrative Agent requesting the Extended Revolving  Lenders (including the Swingline Lender) to make Base Rate Loans under the Extended Revolving Commitments in an amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of any Swingline Loan.  Each Extended Revolving Lender will make the proceeds of its Base Rate Loan included in such Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender in accordance with Section 2.8, which will be used solely for the repayment of such Swingline Loan.
 
(c) If for any reason a Revolving Base Rate Borrowing may not be (as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrative Agent), or is not, made in accordance with the foregoing provisions, then each Extended Revolving Lender (other than the Swingline Lender) shall purchase an undivided participating interest in such Swingline Loan in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share thereof (based on its Extended Revolving Commitment and the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount) on the date that such Revolving Base Rate Borrowing should have occurred. On the date of such required purchase, each Extended Revolving Lender shall promptly transfer, in immediately available funds, the amount of its participating interest to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender. If such Swingline Loan bears interest at a rate other than the Base Rate, such Swingline Loan shall automatically become a Base Rate Loan on the effective date of any such participation and interest shall become payable on demand.
 
(d) Each Extended Revolving Lender’s obligation to make a Revolving Base Rate Loan pursuant to Section 2.5(b) or to purchase the participating interests pursuant to Section 2.5(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such Lender or any other Person may have or claim against the Swingline Lender, the Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the existence of a Default or an Event of Default or the termination of any Extended Revolving Lender’s Extended Revolving Commitment, (iii) the existence (or alleged existence) of any event or condition that has had or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, (iv) any breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any Extended Revolving Lender or (v) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. If such amount is not in fact made available to the Swingline Lender by any Extended Revolving Lender, the Swingline Lender shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Extended Revolving Lender, together with accrued interest thereon for each day from the date of demand thereof (i) at the Federal Funds Rate until the second Business Day after such demand and (ii) at the Base Rate at all times thereafter. Until such time as such Extended Revolving Lender makes its required payment, the Swingline Lender shall be deemed to continue to have outstanding Swingline Loans in the amount of the unpaid participation for all purposes of the Loan Documents. In addition, such Extended Revolving Lender shall be deemed to have assigned any and all payments made of principal and interest on its Loans and any other amounts due to it hereunder, to the Swingline Lender to fund the amount of such Extended Revolving Lender’s participation interest in such Swingline Loans that such Extended Revolving Lender failed to fund pursuant to this Section, until such amount has been purchased in full.
 
Section 2.6 Term Loans.  The term loans made by the Lenders to the Borrower pursuant to the Existing Credit Agreement (each, a “Term Loan”) continue to remain outstanding under this Agreement, in the amounts and held by such lenders as are listed in the Register.  The aggregate principal amount of all Term Loans on the Fourth Restatement Date is $194,000,000.  The Term Loans may be, from time to time, Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans or a combination thereof.
 
Section 2.7 Intentionally Omitted.
 
Section 2.8 Funding of Borrowings.
 
(a) Each Revolving Lender will make available each Revolving Loan to be made by it hereunder to the Administrative Agent at the Payment Office on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer in immediately available funds by 12:00 noon with respect to each Eurodollar Loan and by 2:00 p.m. with respect to each Base Rate Loan; provided, that the Swingline Loans will be made as set forth in Section 2.5. The Administrative Agent will give each applicable Revolving Lender reasonable notice of Borrower’s Notice of Revolving Borrowing and will make such Loans available to the Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts that it receives, in like funds by the close of business on such proposed date, to an account maintained by the Borrower with the Administrative Agent or at the Borrower’s option, by effecting a wire transfer of such amounts to an account designated by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent.
 
(b) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified by any Revolving Lender prior to 5 p.m. one (1) Business Day prior to the date of a Borrowing in which such Revolving Lender is participating that such Revolving Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Revolving Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Revolving Lender has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on such date, and the Administrative Agent, in reliance on such assumption, may make available to the Borrower on such date a corresponding amount. If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Revolving Lender on the date of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Revolving Lender together with interest at the Federal Funds Rate for up to two (2) days and thereafter at the rate specified for such Borrowing. If such Revolving Lender does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith upon the Administrative Agent’s demand therefor, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower, and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent together with interest at the rate specified for such Borrowing. Nothing in this subsection shall be deemed to relieve any Revolving Lender from its obligation to fund its Pro Rata Share of any Borrowing hereunder (to the extent such Revolving Lender has a Commitment in the applicable Tranche) or to prejudice any rights that the Borrower may have against any Revolving Lender as a result of any default by such Revolving Lender hereunder.
 
(c) All Loans (other than Swingline Loans) under any Tranche shall be made by the Lenders on the basis of their respective Pro Rata Shares of such Tranche. No Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in its obligations hereunder, and each Lender shall be obligated to make its Loans provided to be made by it hereunder, regardless of the failure of any other Lender to make its Loans hereunder.
 
Section 2.9 Interest Elections.
 
(a) Each Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Notice of Borrowing, and in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Notice of Borrowing. Thereafter, the Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing into a different Type or to continue such Borrowing, and in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section. The Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.  Swingline Borrowings may not be converted or continued.
 
(b) To make an election pursuant to this Section, the Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each Borrowing (a “Notice of Conversion/Continuation”) that is to be converted or continued, as the case may be, (x) prior to 12:00 noon on the requested date of a conversion into a Base Rate Borrowing and (y) prior to 2:00 p.m. three (3) Business Days prior to a continuation of or conversion into a Eurodollar Borrowing. Each such Notice of Conversion/Continuation shall be irrevocable and shall specify (i) the Borrowing and Tranche to which such Notice of Conversion/Continuation applies and if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof that are to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing); (ii) the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Notice of Conversion/Continuation, which shall be a Business Day, (iii) whether the resulting Borrowing is to be a Base Rate Borrowing or a Eurodollar Borrowing; and (iv) if the resulting Borrowing is to be a Eurodollar Borrowing, the Interest Period applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of “Interest Period”. If any such Notice of Conversion/Continuation requests a Eurodollar Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month. The principal amount of any resulting Borrowing shall satisfy the minimum borrowing amount for Eurodollar Borrowings and Base Rate Borrowings set forth in Section 2.3.
 
(c) If, on the expiration of any Interest Period in respect of any Eurodollar Borrowing, the Borrower shall have failed to deliver a Notice of Conversion/ Continuation, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to convert such Borrowing to a Base Rate Borrowing. No Borrowing may be converted into, or continued as, a Eurodollar Borrowing if a Default or an Event of Default exists, unless the Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders shall have otherwise consented in writing. No conversion of any Eurodollar Loans shall be permitted except on the last day of the Interest Period in respect thereof.
 
(d) Upon receipt of any Notice of Conversion/Continuation for any Tranche, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender with a Commitment or Loan in such Tranche of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
 
Section 2.10 Optional Reduction and Termination of Commitments.
 
(a) Unless previously terminated, all Non-Extended Revolving Commitments shall terminate on the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date.  Unless previously terminated, all Extended Revolving Commitments and the Swingline Commitment shall terminate on the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date.
 
(b) Upon at least three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) to the Administrative Agent (which notice shall be irrevocable), the Borrower may reduce the Non-Extended Revolving Commitments in part or terminate the Non-Extended Revolving Commitments in whole; provided, that (i) any partial reduction shall apply to reduce proportionately and permanently the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment of each Lender, (ii) any partial reduction pursuant to this Section shall be in an amount of at least $2,000,000 and any larger multiple of $1,000,000, and (iii) no such reduction shall be permitted that would reduce the Aggregate Non-Extended Revolving Commitments to an amount less than the outstanding Non-Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Non-Extended Revolving Lenders.
 
(c) Upon at least three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) to the Administrative Agent (which notice shall be irrevocable), the Borrower may reduce the Extended Revolving Commitments in part or terminate the Extended Revolving Commitments in whole; provided, that (i) any partial reduction shall apply to reduce proportionately and permanently the Extended Revolving Commitment of each Lender, (ii) any partial reduction pursuant to this Section shall be in an amount of at least $2,000,000 and any larger multiple of $1,000,000, (iii) no such reduction shall be permitted that would reduce the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount to an amount less than the outstanding Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Extended Revolving Lenders and (iv) no reduction in the Extended Revolving Commitments may be made under this Section 2.10(c) unless and until all Non-Extended Revolving Commitments have been terminated in full.  Any such reduction in the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount below the principal amount of the Swingline Commitment or the LC Commitment shall result in a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the Swingline Commitment or the LC Commitment, as the case may be.
 
(d) With the written approval of the Administrative Agent, the Borrower may terminate (on a non-ratable basis) the unused amount of the Revolving Commitment of a Defaulting Lender, and in such event the provisions of Section 2.22 will apply to all amounts thereafter paid by the Borrower for the account of any such Defaulting Lender under this Agreement (whether on account of principal, interest, fees, indemnity or other amounts), provided that such termination will not be deemed to be a waiver or release of any claim the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank, the Swingline Lender or any other Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender.
 
Section 2.11 Repayment of Loans.
 
(a) The outstanding principal amount of all Non-Extended Revolving Loans shall be due and payable (together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) on the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date.  The outstanding principal amount of all Extended Revolving Loans shall be due and payable (together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) on the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date
 
(b) The principal amount of each Swingline Borrowing shall be due and payable (together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) on the earlier of (i) the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Borrowing, if any, and (ii) the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date.
 
(c) The Borrower unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Lenders that have made Term Loans, the then unpaid principal amount of the Term Loans in equal quarterly installments of $500,000 each, payable on the last day of each March, June, September and December, commencing on March 31, 2007, each such installment to be allocated to the Lenders based upon their Pro Rata Shares of the Term Loans; provided, that, to the extent not previously paid, the aggregate unpaid principal balance of the Term Loans (together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) shall be due and payable on the Maturity Date.
 
Section 2.12 Evidence of Indebtedness.
 
(a) Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice appropriate records evidencing the indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan in each Tranche made by such Lender from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable thereon and paid to such Lender from time to time under this Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall maintain appropriate records in which shall be recorded (i) the Commitments of each Lender, (ii) the amount of each Loan made hereunder by each Lender, the Class, Tranche and Type thereof and the Interest Period applicable thereto, (iii) the date of each continuation thereof pursuant to Section 2.9, (iv) the date of each conversion of all or a portion thereof to another Type pursuant to Section 2.9, (v) the date and amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder in respect of such Loans and (vi) both the date and amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder from the Borrower in respect of the Loans, the Class (and, if applicable, Tranche) thereof and each Lender’s Pro Rata Share thereof. The entries made in such records shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Borrower therein recorded; provided, that the failure or delay of any Lender or the Administrative Agent in maintaining or making entries into any such record or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay the Loans (both principal and unpaid accrued interest) of such Lender in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
(b) Any Lender may request that Loans made by it be evidenced by a promissory note.  In such event, the Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to the order of such Lender for each Class (and, if applicable, Tranche) of Commitments of such Lender (or, if requested by such Lender, to such Lender and its registered assigns) and in a form approved by the Administrative Agent.  Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 10.4) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the order of the payee named therein (or, if such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its registered assigns) until such time as the promissory note requirement is waived by the holder thereof.
 
Section 2.13 Optional and Mandatory Prepayments.
 
(a) The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, by giving irrevocable written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) to the Administrative Agent no later than (i) in the case of prepayment of any Eurodollar Borrowing, 2:00 p.m. not less than three (3) Business Days prior to any such prepayment, (ii) in the case of any prepayment of any Base Rate Borrowing, 12:00 noon on the date of such prepayment, (iii) in the case of Swingline Borrowings, prior to 2:00 p.m. on the date of such prepayment and (iv) in the case of payments in any Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, no later than 11:00 a.m. (at the office of the Administrative Agent’s account for payments in such currency) in the Administrative Agent’s account.  Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the proposed date of such prepayment, the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid and the applicable Tranche thereof, if any.  Upon receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each affected Lender of the contents thereof and of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of any such prepayment. If such notice is given, the aggregate amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date designated in such notice, together with accrued interest to such date on the amount so prepaid in accordance with Section 2.14(d); provided, that if a Eurodollar Borrowing is prepaid on a date other than the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall also pay all amounts required pursuant to Section 2.20. Each partial prepayment of any Loan (other than a Swingline Loan) shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Revolving Borrowing of the same Type pursuant to Section 2.2 or in the case of a Swingline Loan pursuant to Section 2.5. If the Borrower does not, or is unable for any reason to, effect payment to any Issuing Bank or Lenders in the applicable currency or if the Borrower shall default in the payment when due of any payment in such currency, such Issuing Bank or Lenders may, at their option, require such payment to be made to such Issuing Bank or Lenders in the Dollar Equivalent of such currency determined in accordance with Section 10.16.  With respect to any amount due and payable in Euros, Pounds, or other Acceptable Currencies, the Borrower agrees to hold the Issuing Banks and the Lenders harmless from any losses, if any, that are actually incurred by the Issuing Banks and the Lenders arising from any change in the value of Dollars in relation to such currency between the date such payment became due and the date of payment thereof (other than losses incurred by any such Issuing Bank or Lender due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Bank or Lender).  Each prepayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and in the case of a prepayment of a Term Loan Borrowing, to principal installments as specified by the Borrower. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each prepayment of a Revolving Borrowing made prior to the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date shall be applied pro rata to the Non-Extended Revolving Commitments and the Extended Revolving Commitments.
 
(b) If on any date the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries shall receive Net Cash Proceeds in excess of $10,000,000 in any Fiscal Year from any Asset Sale or Recovery Event then, unless a Reinvestment Notice shall have been delivered previously to the Administrative Agent in respect thereof, such Net Cash Proceeds shall immediately be applied to the prepayment of the Obligations in accordance with clause (e) below; provided, that on each Reinvestment Prepayment Date, an amount equal to the Reinvestment Prepayment Amount with respect to the relevant Reinvestment Event shall be applied to the prepayment of Loans.
 
(c) If on any date the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries shall receive Net Cash Proceeds from any equity issuance (other than equity issuances pursuant to stock incentive plans or other equity award agreements for employees of the Borrower or a Subsidiary and Investments permitted under Section 7.4 that consist of equity issued on an intercompany basis among the Borrower and its Subsidiaries) or from the issuance of Permitted Subordinated Debt, and the proceeds thereof are not applied to an Acquisition permitted herein within ninety (90) days of such issuance, then in such event, such Net Cash Proceeds shall immediately be applied to the prepayment of the Obligations in accordance with clause (e) below.
 
(d) Within 15 days after the delivery to the Agent of the annual audited financial statements for any Fiscal Year, commencing with the 2007 Fiscal Year, and no later than 90 days after the last day of such Fiscal Year, Borrower shall immediately prepay the Obligations in accordance with clause (e) below by an amount equal to 50% of Excess Cash Flow for such Fiscal Year; provided, however, that no such prepayment shall be required if the ratio of Consolidated Total Funded Debt to Consolidated EBITDA as of the last day of such Fiscal Year is less than 3.50 to 1.0.
 
(e) Any prepayments made by the Borrower pursuant to Sections 2.13(b), (c) or (d) above shall be applied as follows: first, to Administrative Agent’s fees and reimbursable expenses then due and payable pursuant to any of the Loan Documents; second, to all reimbursable expenses of the Lenders and all fees and reimbursable expenses of the Issuing Banks then due and payable pursuant to any of the Loan Documents, pro rata to the Lenders and the Issuing Bank based on their respective pro rata shares of such fees and expenses; third, to interest and fees then due and payable hereunder, pro rata to the Lenders based on their respective pro rata shares of such interest and fees; fourth, to the principal balance of the Term Loans, until the same shall have been paid in full, pro rata to the Lenders based on their Pro Rata Shares of the Term Loans, and applied to installments of the Term Loans in inverse order of maturity; fifth, to the principal balance of the Swing Line Loans, until the same shall have been paid in full, to the Swingline Lender, sixth, to the principal balance of the Revolving Loans, until the same shall have been paid in full, pro rata to the Lenders based on their respective Revolving Commitments and seventh, to cash collateralize the Letters of Credit in accordance with Section 2.24(g) in an amount in cash equal to the LC Exposure as of such date plus any accrued and unpaid fees thereon.  The Revolving Commitments of the Lenders shall not be permanently reduced by the amount of any prepayments made pursuant to clauses fifth through seventh above, unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Required Revolving Lenders so request.
 
(f) If at any time the Non-Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Lenders exceeds the Aggregate Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Amount, as reduced pursuant to Section 2.10 or otherwise, the Borrower shall immediately repay Non-Extended Revolving Loans in an amount equal to such excess, together with all accrued and unpaid interest on such excess amount and any amounts due under Section 2.20, applied first to Base Rate Loans to the full extent thereof and then to Eurodollar Loans to the full extent thereof.  If at any time the Dollar Equivalent of the Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Lenders exceeds the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount, as reduced pursuant to Section 2.10 or otherwise, the Borrower shall immediately repay Swingline Loans and Extended Revolving Loans in an amount equal to such excess, together with all accrued and unpaid interest on such excess amount and any amounts due under Section 2.20, applied first to Swingline Loans to the full extent thereof, second to Base Rate Loans to the full extent thereof, and finally to Eurodollar Loans to the full extent thereof.  If after giving effect to prepayment of all Swingline Loans and Extended Revolving Loans, the Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Lenders exceeds the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount, the Borrower shall Cash Collateralize its reimbursement obligations with respect to the Letters of Credit by depositing cash collateral in an amount equal to such excess plus any accrued and unpaid fees thereon.  Such account shall be administered in accordance with Section 2.24(g) hereof.
 
Section 2.14 Interest on Loans.
 
(a) The Borrower shall pay interest (i) on each Base Rate Loan at the Base Rate in effect from time to time plus the applicable Base Rate Margin in effect from time to time and (ii) on each Eurodollar Loan at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the applicable Interest Period in effect for such Loan plus the applicable Eurodollar Rate Margin in effect from time to time.
 
(b) The Borrower shall pay interest on each Swingline Loan at the Swingline Rate.
 
(c) While an Event of Default exists or after acceleration, at the option of the Required Lenders, the Borrower shall pay interest (“Default Interest”) (i) with respect to Eurodollar Loans at the rate otherwise applicable to such Eurodollar Loans for the then-current Interest Period plus an additional 2% per annum until the last day of such Interest Period, and thereafter, (ii) with respect to Base Rate Loans at the rate otherwise applicable to such Base Rate Loans plus an additional 2% per annum and (iii) with respect to all other Obligations hereunder (other than Loans), at the rate in effect for Extended Revolving Base Rate Loans plus an additional 2% per annum.
 
(d) Interest on the principal amount of all Loans shall accrue from and including the date such Loans are made to but excluding the date of any repayment thereof. Interest on all outstanding Base Rate Loans shall be payable (i) quarterly in arrears on the last day of each March, June, September and December, (ii) on the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date with respect to all Non-Extended Revolving Loans, (iii) on the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date with respect to all Extended Revolving Loans and (iv) on the Maturity Date with respect to all Term Loans. Interest on all outstanding Eurodollar Loans shall be payable (i) on the last day of each Interest Period applicable thereto, and, in the case of any Eurodollar Loans having an Interest Period in excess of three months or 90 days, respectively, on each day that occurs every three months or 90 days, as applicable, after the initial date of such Interest Period, (ii) on the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date with respect to all Non-Extended Revolving Loans, (iii) on the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date with respect to all Extended Revolving Loans and (iv) on the Maturity Date with respect to all Term Loans.  Interest on each Swingline Loan shall be payable on the maturity of such Loan, which shall be the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, and on the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date. Interest on any Loan which is converted into a Loan of another Type or which is repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such conversion or on the date of any such repayment or prepayment (on the amount repaid or prepaid) thereof. All Default Interest shall be payable on demand.
 
(e) The Administrative Agent shall determine each interest rate applicable to the Loans hereunder and shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of such rate in writing (or by telephone, promptly confirmed in writing). Any such determination shall be presumed correct for all purposes, absent manifest error.
 
Section 2.15 Fees.
 
(a) Administrative Agent’s Fee. The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for its own account, fees in the amounts and at the times previously agreed upon by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent.
 
(b) Commitment Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay in Dollars to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Non-Extended Revolving Lender a commitment fee, which shall accrue at the Applicable Percentage for the Non-Extended Revolving Commitments (on an annualized basis but determined daily in accordance with Schedule I) on the daily amount of the Dollar Equivalent of the unused Non-Extended Revolving Commitment of such Lender during the Non-Extended Revolving Availability Period. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Extended Revolving Lender a commitment fee, which shall accrue at the Applicable Percentage for the Extended Revolving Commitments (on an annualized basis but determined daily in accordance with Schedule I) on the daily amount of the unused Extended Revolving Commitment of such Lender during the Extended Revolving Availability Period. For purposes of computing commitment fees with respect to the Revolving Commitments, the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment of each Lender shall be deemed used to the extent of the outstanding Non-Extended Revolving Loans of such Lender, and the Extended Revolving Commitment of each Lender shall be deemed used to the extent of the outstanding Extended Revolving Loans and LC Exposure of such Lender, however Swingline Loans shall not be deemed usage of the Extended Revolving Commitments.
 
(c) Letter of Credit Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay in Dollars (i) to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Extended Revolving Lender, a letter of credit fee with respect to its participation in each Letter of Credit, which shall accrue at the Applicable Percentage (on an annualized basis but determined daily in accordance with Schedule I) then in effect on the average daily amount of such Extended Revolving Lender’s LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) attributable to such Letter of Credit during the period from and including the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit to but excluding the date on which such Letter expires or is drawn in full (including any LC Exposure that remains outstanding after the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date) and (ii) to the relevant Issuing Bank for its own account a fronting fee, which shall accrue at the rate of 0.125% per annum on the average daily amount of the LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the Extended Revolving Availability Period (or until the date that such Letter of Credit is irrevocably canceled, whichever is later), as well as the relevant Issuing Bank’s standard fees with respect to issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or processing of drawings thereunder. For any Letter of Credit issued with a face amount in any Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, the fees shall be converted into Dollars using the applicable Exchange Rate in effect two (2) Business Days before the date any fee with respect thereto shall be due and payable hereunder.  Notwithstanding anything in this subsection to the contrary, while an Event of Default exists, to the extent that Default Interest is instituted by the Required Lenders pursuant to Section 2.14(c),  the Applicable Percentage for Letters of Credit shall accrue at Level VI of Schedule I.
 
(d) Payments. Accrued fees under subsection (b) and (c)(i) of this Section shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the last day of each March, June, September and December, commencing on March 31, 2010, and on the Non-Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date with respect to the Non-Extended Revolving Commitments and on the Extended Commitment Revolving Termination Date with respect to the Extended Revolving Commitments (and if later, the date the Loans and LC Exposure shall be repaid in their entirety); provided further, that any such fees accruing after the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date shall be payable on demand. Fees under subsection (c)(ii) of this Section shall be payable in advance on the date of the issuance of the Letter of Credit for the term of such Letter of Credit. Interest shall accrue on any unpaid fee at the rate in effect for Base Rate Loans, plus an additional 2% per annum.
 
(e) Defaulting Lenders. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, during any period that an Extended Revolving Lender is a Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender will not be entitled to commitment fees accruing with respect to its Extended Revolving Commitment during such period pursuant to Section 2.15(b) or letter of credit fees accruing during such period pursuant to Section 2.15(c)  (without prejudice to the rights of the Non-Defaulting Lenders in respect of such fees), provided that (a) to the extent that a portion of the LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender is reallocated to the Non-Defaulting Lenders, such fees that would have accrued for the benefit of such Defaulting Lender will instead accrue for the benefit of and be payable to such Non-Defaulting Lenders to the extent of such Non-Defaulting Lenders’ incremental additional LC Exposure and (b) to the extent that any portion of such LC Exposure cannot be so reallocated, such fees will instead accrue for the benefit of and be payable to the relevant Issuing Bank.
 
Section 2.16 Computation of Interest and Fees.
 
To the extent permitted by applicable law, all computations of fees and interest under this Agreement payable in respect of any period shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a 360-day year, in each case for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such fees or interest are payable; provided, however, that computations regarding interest accruing with reference to the Base Rate shall be made on the basis of a 365-day (or 366-day, as applicable) year and the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which interest is payable.  Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest amount or fee hereunder shall be made in good faith and, except for manifest error, shall be presumed correct for all purposes.
 
Section 2.17 Inability to Determine Interest Rates. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for any Eurodollar Borrowing,
            
             (i) the Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Borrower) that, by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant interbank market, adequate means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for such Interest Period, or
   
             (ii) the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Required Lenders that the Adjusted LIBO Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender, as the case may be) of making, funding or maintaining their (or its, as the case may be) Eurodollar Loans for such Interest Period,
 
the Administrative Agent shall give written notice (or telephonic notice, promptly confirmed in writing) to the Borrower and to the Lenders as soon as practicable thereafter. In the case of Eurodollar Loans, until the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) the obligations of the Lenders to make Eurodollar Revolving Loans or to continue or convert outstanding Loans as or into Eurodollar Loans shall be suspended and (ii) all such affected Loans shall be converted into Base Rate Loans on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto unless the Borrower prepays such Loans in accordance with this Agreement. Unless the Borrower notifies the Administrative Agent at least one Business Day before the date of any Eurodollar Revolving Borrowing for which a Notice of Revolving Borrowing has previously been given that it elects not to borrow on such date, then such Revolving Borrowing shall be made as a Base Rate Borrowing.
 
Section 2.18 Illegality. If any Change in Law shall make it unlawful or impossible for any Lender to make, maintain or fund any Eurodollar Loan and such Lender shall so notify the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall promptly give notice thereof to the Borrower and the other Lenders, whereupon until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligation of such Lender to make Eurodollar Revolving Loans, or to continue or convert outstanding Loans as or into Eurodollar Loans, shall be suspended. In the case of the making of a Eurodollar Revolving Borrowing, such Lender’s Revolving Loan shall be made as a Base Rate Loan as part of the same Revolving Borrowing for the same Interest Period and if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then outstanding, such Loan shall be converted to a Base Rate Loan either (i) on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Loan if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Loan to such date or (ii) immediately if such Lender shall determine that it may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Loan to such date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the affected Lender shall, prior to giving such notice to the Administrative Agent, designate a different Applicable Lending Office if such designation would avoid the need for giving such notice and if such designation would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender in the good faith exercise of its discretion.
 
Section 2.19 Increased Costs.
 
(a) If any Change in Law shall:
 
(i) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement that is not otherwise included in the determination of the Adjusted LIBO Rate hereunder against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate) or any Issuing Bank; or
 
(ii) impose on any Lender or any Issuing Bank or the eurodollar interbank market any other condition affecting this Agreement or any Eurodollar Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or any participation therein;
 
and the result of the foregoing is to increase the actual cost to such Lender of making, converting into, continuing or maintaining a Eurodollar Loan or to increase the actual cost to such Lender or Issuing Bank of participating in or issuing any Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount received or receivable by such Lender or Issuing Bank hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount), then the Borrower shall promptly pay, upon written notice from and demand by such Lender on the Borrower (with a copy of such notice and demand to the Administrative Agent), to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender, within five (5) Business Days after the date of such notice and demand, additional amount or amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, for such additional costs actually incurred or reduction actually suffered.
 
(b) If any Lender or any Issuing Bank shall have determined that on or after the date of this Agreement any Change in Law regarding capital requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s capital (or on the capital of the Parent Company of such Lender or Issuing Bank) as a consequence of its obligations hereunder or under or in respect of any Letter of Credit to a level below that which such Lender or Issuing Bank or the Parent Company of such Lender or Issuing Bank could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s policies or the policies of the Parent Company of such Lender or Issuing Bank with respect to capital adequacy) then, from time to time, within five (5) Business Days after receipt by the Borrower of written demand by such Lender (with a copy thereof to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amounts as will compensate such Lender or Issuing Bank or the Parent Company of such Lender or Issuing Bank for any such reduction suffered.
 
(c) A certificate of a Lender or an Issuing Bank setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender, such Issuing Bank or the Parent Company of such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be delivered to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) and shall be presumed correct, absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay any such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such amount or amounts within 10 days after receipt thereof.
 
(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or Issuing Bank to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s right to demand such compensation.
 
Section 2.20 Funding Indemnity. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of a Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion or continuation of a Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, or (c) the failure by the Borrower to borrow, prepay, convert or continue any Eurodollar Loan on the date specified in any applicable notice (regardless of whether such notice is withdrawn or revoked), then, in any such event, the Borrower shall compensate each Lender, within five (5) Business Days after written demand from such Lender, for any loss, cost or expense attributable to such event. In the case of a Eurodollar Loan, such loss, cost or expense shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (A) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of such Eurodollar Loan if such event had not occurred at the Adjusted LIBO Rate applicable to such Eurodollar Loan for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Eurodollar Loan) over (B) the amount of interest that would accrue on the principal amount of such Eurodollar Loan for the same period if the Adjusted LIBO Rate were set on the date such Eurodollar Loan was prepaid or converted or the date on which the Borrower failed to borrow, convert or continue such Eurodollar Loan. A certificate as to any additional amount payable under this Section submitted to the Borrower by any Lender shall be presumed correct, absent manifest error.
 
Section 2.21 Taxes.
 
(a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided, that if the Borrower shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Bank (as the case may be) shall receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(b) In addition, the Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(c) The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Lender and each Issuing Bank, within five (5) Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Administrative Agent or such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto as a result of the Borrower's failure to comply with this Section in a timely manner, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender or an Issuing Bank, or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or an Issuing Bank, shall be presumed correct absent manifest error.
 
(d) As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
 
(e) Any Foreign Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax under the Code or any treaty to which the United States is a party, with respect to payments under this Agreement shall deliver to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at the time or times prescribed by applicable law, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Foreign Lender agrees that it will deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower (or in the case of a Participant, to the Lender from which the related participation shall have been purchased), as appropriate, two (2) duly completed copies of (i) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 ECI, or any successor form thereto, certifying that the payments received from the Borrower hereunder are effectively connected with such Foreign Lender’s conduct of a trade or business in the United States; or (ii) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 BEN, or any successor form thereto, certifying that such Foreign Lender is entitled to benefits under an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party that reduces the rate of withholding tax on payments of interest; or (iii) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 BEN, or any successor form prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service, together with a certificate (A) establishing that the payment to such Foreign Lender qualifies as “portfolio interest” exempt from U.S. withholding tax under Code section 871(h) or 881(c), and (B) stating that (1) such Foreign Lender is not a bank for purposes of Code section 881(c)(3)(A), or the obligation of the Borrower hereunder is not, with respect to such Foreign Lender, a loan agreement entered into in the ordinary course of its trade or business, within the meaning of that section; (2) such Foreign Lender is not a 10% shareholder of the Borrower within the meaning of Code section 871(h)(3) or 881(c)(3)(B); and (3) such Foreign Lender is not a controlled foreign corporation that is related to the Borrower within the meaning of Code section 881(c)(3)(C); or (iv) such other Internal Revenue Service forms as may be applicable to such Foreign Lender, including Forms W-8 IMY or W-8 EXP.  Each such Foreign Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent such forms on or before the date that it becomes a party to this Agreement (or in the case of a Participant, on or before the date such Participant purchases the related participation).  In addition, each such Foreign Lender shall deliver such forms promptly upon the obsolescence or invalidity of any form previously delivered by such Foreign Lender.  Each such Foreign Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at any time that it determines that it is no longer in a position to provide any previously delivered certificate to the Borrower (or any other form of certification adopted by the Internal Revenue Service for such purpose).
 
Section 2.22 Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs; Application of Funds.
 
(a) The Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of LC Disbursements, or of amounts payable under Section 2.19, 2.20 or 2.21, or otherwise) prior to 2:00 p.m., on the Business Day when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent at the Payment Office, except payments to be made directly to an Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender as expressly provided herein and except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.19, 2.20 and 2.21 and 10.3 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. If the Borrower does not, or is unable for any reason to, effect payment to any Issuing Banks or Lenders in the applicable currency or if the Borrower shall default in the payment when due of any payment in such currency, such Issuing Banks or Lenders may, at their option, require such payment to be made to such Issuing Banks or Lenders in the Dollar Equivalent of such currency determined in accordance with Section 10.16.  With respect to any amount due and payable in any Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, the Borrower agrees to hold the Issuing Banks and Lenders harmless from any losses, if any, that are incurred by the Issuing Banks and Lenders arising from any change in the value of Dollars in relation to such currency between the date such payment became due and the date of payment thereof (other than losses incurred by any Issuing Bank or Lender due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Bank or Lender).  The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof.  If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be made payable for the period of such extension.  All payments hereunder shall be made in Dollars, or, in the case of any payment to an Issuing Bank in respect of an LC Disbursement made in an Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, in such Acceptable Currency.  The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be made payable for the period of such extension. All payments hereunder shall be made in Dollars.
 
(b) If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, unreimbursed LC Disbursements, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due to such parties.
 
(c) If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Revolving Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans that would result in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans and accrued interest thereon than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans; provided, that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to the Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply). The Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.
 
(d) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or an Issuing Bank hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, the amount or amounts due. In such event, if the Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or Issuing Bank with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
 
(e) If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.5(b) or (c), 2.8, 2.22(d), 2.24(c) or (d), or 10.3(d), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.
 
           (f)  Any amount paid by the Borrower for the account of any Defaulting Lender under this Agreement (whether on account of principal, interest, fees, indemnity payments or other amounts) will be retained by the Administrative Agent in a segregated non-interest bearing account until the termination of the Extended Revolving Commitments at which time the funds in such account will be applied by the Administrative Agent, to the fullest extent permitted by law, in the following order of priority:  first to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, second to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to an Issuing Bank or Swingline Lender under this Agreement, third to the payment of interest and fees due and payable to the Non-Defaulting Lenders, ratably in accordance with the  amounts of such interest and fees then due and payable to them, fourth to the payment of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due and payable to the Non-Defaulting Lenders hereunder ratably in accordance with the amounts thereof then due and payable to them, fifth to the ratable payment of other amounts then due and payable to the Non-Defaulting Lenders, and sixth to pay amounts owing under this Agreement to such Defaulting Lender or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.
 
Section 2.23 Mitigation of Obligations. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.19, or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.21, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the sole judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable under Section 2.19 or Section 2.21, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with such designation or assignment.
 
Section 2.24 Letters of Credit.
 
(a) During the Extended Revolving Availability Period, each Issuing Bank, in reliance upon the agreements of the Extended Revolving Lenders pursuant to Section 2.24(d), agrees to issue, at the request of the Borrower, Letters of Credit for the account of the Borrower on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth; provided, that (i) each Letter of Credit shall expire no later than five (5) Business Days prior to the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date; (ii) each Letter of Credit shall be in a stated amount of at least $50,000, or, if denominated in any Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, the Dollar Equivalent of $50,000; (iii) any Letter of Credit in an Acceptable Currency other than Dollars shall be issued in the sole discretion of the relevant Foreign Currency Issuing Bank, and any Letter of Credit in Dollars issued by any Issuing Bank other than SunTrust Bank shall be in the sole discretion of such Issuing Bank; and (iv) the Borrower may not request any Letter of Credit, if, after giving effect to such issuance (A) the aggregate LC Exposure would exceed the LC Commitment or (B) the aggregate Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of all Extended Revolving Lenders would exceed the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitment Amount or (C) the Dollar Equivalent amount of the principal amount of outstanding Letters of Credit in Acceptable Currencies other than Dollars, determined in accordance with Section 10.17, would exceed in the aggregate the Foreign Currency Sublimit. Upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Extended Revolving Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the relevant Issuing Bank without recourse a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Extended Revolving Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. Each issuance of a Letter of Credit shall be deemed to utilize the Extended Revolving Commitment of each Lender by an amount equal to the amount of such participation.  As of the Fourth Restatement Date, each of the Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued under the Extended Revolving Commitments pursuant to this Section, each Extended Revolving Lender is deemed to have purchased a participation in all Existing Letters of Credit in accordance with this Section 2.24, and no Non-Extended Revolving Lender shall have any participation in such Existing Letters of Credit.  The Administrative Agent shall provide the Extended Revolving Lenders with relevant information concerning the LC Exposure upon written request, no more frequently than quarterly.
 
(b) To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or any amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit), the Borrower shall give the relevant Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent irrevocable written notice at least three (3) Business Days prior to the requested date of such issuance specifying the date (which shall be a Business Day) such Letter of Credit is to be issued (or amended, extended or renewed, as the case may be), the expiration date of such Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit, the Acceptable Currency in which such Letter of Credit is to be issued (if other than Dollars), the name and address of the beneficiary thereof and such other information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, renew or extend such Letter of Credit. In addition to the satisfaction of the conditions in Article III, the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or any amendment that increases the amount of such Letter of Credit) will be subject to the further conditions that such Letter of Credit shall be in such form and contain such terms as the relevant Issuing Bank shall approve (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) and that the Borrower shall have executed and delivered any additional applications, agreements and instruments relating to such Letter of Credit as the relevant Issuing Bank shall reasonably require; provided, that in the event of any conflict between such applications, agreements or instruments and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control.
 
(c) At least two (2) Business Days prior to the issuance of any Letter of Credit, the relevant Issuing Bank will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has received such notice and if not, the relevant Issuing Bank will provide the Administrative Agent with a copy thereof. Unless the relevant Issuing Bank has received notice from the Administrative Agent on or before the Business Day immediately preceding the date such Issuing Bank is to issue the requested Letter of Credit directing such Issuing Bank not to issue the Letter of Credit because such issuance is not then permitted hereunder because of the limitations set forth in Section 2.24(a) or that one or more conditions specified in Article III are not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the relevant Issuing Bank shall issue such Letter of Credit on the requested date in accordance with its usual and customary business practices.
 
(d) Each Issuing Bank shall examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit promptly following its receipt thereof. Each Issuing Bank shall notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of such demand for payment and whether such Issuing Bank has made or will make a LC Disbursement thereunder; provided, that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve the Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such Issuing Bank and the Extended Revolving Lenders with respect to such LC Disbursement. The Borrower shall be irrevocably and unconditionally obligated to reimburse each Issuing Bank for any LC Disbursements paid by such Issuing Bank in respect of such drawing, without presentment, demand or other formalities of any kind, such reimbursement to be made in the Acceptable Currency in which such Letter of Credit was issued, or if requested by the Borrower and acceptable to such Issuing Bank, in Dollars as converted pursuant to Section 10.16.  Unless the Borrower shall have notified the relevant Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent prior to 12:00 noon on the Business Day immediately prior to the date on which such drawing is honored that the Borrower intends to reimburse such Issuing Bank for the amount of such drawing in funds other than from the proceeds of Extended Revolving Loans, the Borrower shall be deemed to have timely given a Notice of Revolving Borrowing to the Administrative Agent requesting the Lenders to make a Extended Revolving Base Rate Borrowing on the date on which such drawing is honored in an amount in Dollars (which, if such Letter of Credit was issued in an Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, shall be the amount determined pursuant to Section 10.16 for the conversion of such Acceptable Currency into Dollars); of the exact amount due to such Issuing Bank; provided, that for purposes solely of such Borrowing, the conditions precedent set forth in Section 3.2 hereof shall not be applicable. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Extended Revolving Lenders of such Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.3, and each Extended Revolving Lender shall make the proceeds of its Extended Revolving Base Rate Loan included in such Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuing Bank in accordance with Section 2.8. The proceeds of such Borrowing shall be applied directly by the Administrative Agent to reimburse such Issuing Bank for such LC Disbursement.
 
(e) If for any reason a Revolving Base Rate Borrowing may not be (as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrative Agent), or is not, made in accordance with the foregoing provisions, then each Extended Revolving Lender (other than the relevant Issuing Bank) shall be obligated to fund the participation that such Extended Revolving Lender purchased pursuant to subsection (a) in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share (such Pro Rata Share to be determined after converting any Acceptable Currency to Dollars pursuant to Section 10.16, as applicable) of such LC Disbursement on and as of the date that such Base Rate Borrowing should have occurred.  Each Extended Revolving Lender’s obligation to fund its participation shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such Lender or any other Person may have against the relevant Issuing Bank or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the existence of a Default or an Event of Default or the termination of the Aggregate Extended Revolving Commitments, (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, (iv) any breach of this Agreement by the Borrower or any other Lender, (v) any amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or (vi) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. On the date that such participation is required to be funded, each Lender shall promptly transfer, in immediately available funds, the amount of its participation to the Administrative Agent for the account of the relevant Issuing Bank.  Whenever, at any time after any Issuing Bank has received from any such Extended Revolving Lender the funds for its participation in a LC Disbursement, such Issuing Bank (or the Administrative Agent on its behalf) receives any payment on account thereof, the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, will distribute to such Extended Revolving Lender its Pro Rata Share of such payment; provided, that if such payment is required to be returned for any reason to the Borrower or to a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian or similar official in any bankruptcy proceeding, such Extended Revolving Lender will return to the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Bank any portion thereof previously distributed by the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Bank to it.
 
(f) To the extent that any Extended Revolving Lender shall fail to pay any amount required to be paid pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section on the due date therefor, such Extended Revolving Lender shall pay interest to the relevant Issuing Bank (through the Administrative Agent) on such amount from such due date to the date such payment is made at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Rate or a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, including the Overnight Foreign Currency Rate in the case of Letters of Credit denominated in Euros or in Pounds; provided, that if such Lender shall fail to make such payment to the relevant Issuing Bank within three (3) Business Days of such due date, then, retroactively to the due date, such Lender shall be obligated to pay interest on such amount at the rate set forth in Section 2.14(c).
 
(g) If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, on the Business Day that the Borrower receives notice from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders demanding that its reimbursement obligations with respect to the Letters of Credit be Cash Collateralized pursuant to this paragraph, the Borrower shall deposit in an account with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Issuing Banks and the Lenders, an amount in cash equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the LC Exposure as of such date plus any accrued and unpaid fees thereon; provided, that such obligation to Cash Collateralize the reimbursement obligations of the Borrower with respect to the Letters of Credit shall become effective immediately, and such deposit shall become immediately due and payable, without demand or notice of any kind, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default with respect to the Borrower described in clause (g) or (h) of Section 8.1; provided, further, that as of each Calculation Date occurring after the initial Cash Collateralization of Letters of Credit, the Administrative Agent and any Foreign Currency Issuing Bank may request that additional cash collateral be deposited to the extent that the value of such cash collateral is less than the Dollar Equivalent of the LC Exposure on such Calculation Date as a result of currency exchange rate fluctuations. Such deposit shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account. Borrower agrees to execute any documents and/or certificates to effectuate the intent of this paragraph.  Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of the Administrative Agent and at the Borrower’s risk and expense, such deposits shall not bear interest. Interest and profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account. Moneys in such account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse each Issuing Bank for LC Disbursements for which it had not been reimbursed and to the extent so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of the Borrower for the LC Exposure at such time or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated, with the consent of the Required Lenders, be applied to satisfy other obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. If the Borrower is required to Cash Collateralize its reimbursement obligations with respect to Letters of Credit as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, such cash collateral so posted (to the extent not so applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to the Borrower within three Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived.
 
(h) Intentionally Omitted.
 
(i) The Borrower’s obligation to reimburse LC Disbursements hereunder shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of any of the following circumstances:
 
(i) Any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement;
 
(ii) The existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right that the Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Borrower may have at any time against a beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Persons or entities for whom any such beneficiary or transferee may be acting), any Lender (including the relevant Issuing Bank) or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement or the Letter of Credit or any document related hereto or thereto or any unrelated transaction;
 
(iii) Any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, if such documents on their face appear to be in order;
 
(iv) Payment by an Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document to such Issuing Bank that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit;
 
(v) Any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, the Borrower’s obligations hereunder; or
 
(vi) The existence of a Default or an Event of Default.
 
None of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks, the Lenders or any Related Party of any of the foregoing shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to above), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of the relevant Issuing Bank; provided, that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse any Issuing Bank from liability to the Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by the Borrower that are caused by such Issuing Bank’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts or other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree, that in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of an Issuing Bank (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), such Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect to documents presented that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, an Issuing Bank may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.
 
(j) Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the relevant Issuing Bank and the Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued and subject to applicable laws, (i) each standby Letter of Credit shall be governed by the “International Standby Practices 1998” (ISP98) (or such later revision as may be published by the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice on the date such Letter of Credit is issued), and (ii) each documentary Letter of Credit shall be governed by the Uniform Customs and Practices for Documentary Credits (2007 Revision), International Chamber of Commerce Publication No. 600 (or such later revision as may be published by the International Chamber of Commerce on any date any Letter of Credit may be issued).
 
Section 2.25 Increase of Commitments; Additional Lenders.  At any time before the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Borrower may at any time and from time to time, by notice to the Administrative Agent (whereupon the Administrative Agent shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders), request to add additional term loans or additional Extended Revolving Commitments (together, the “Incremental Extensions of Credit”) in minimum principal amounts of $10,000,000 (or $25,000,000 if a new Class of Term Loans is being created); provided that such amount may be less than $10,000,000 (or $25,000,000, as applicable) if such amount represents all the remaining available principal amount set forth below; provided, further, that (i) immediately prior to and after giving effect to any Incremental Facility Amendment (as defined below), no Default or Event of Default has occurred or is continuing or shall result therefrom, and (ii) the Borrower shall be in compliance on a Pro Forma Basis with the financial covenants set forth in Article VI recomputed as of the last day of the most recently ended Fiscal Quarter for which financial statements are available.  The Incremental Extensions of Credit:
 
(a)           shall be in an aggregate principal amount (for this purpose, treating the full amount of all additional Extended Revolving Commitments as principal) not exceeding $200,000,000;
 
(b)           shall rank pari passu in right of payment and right of security in respect of the Collateral with the Revolving Loans and Term Loans;
 
(c)           in the case of additional Extended Revolving Commitments, shall, on the date of the effectiveness of the applicable Incremental Facility Amendment, be added to the then existing Extended Revolving Commitments, and all extensions of credit pursuant thereto shall have the same terms as those that apply to the extensions of credit pursuant to the existing Extended Revolving Commitments; and
 
(d)           in the case of additional term loans shall either (x) be added to, and form part of the same Class as, one or more Classes (as specified in the respective Incremental Facility Amendment) of theretofore outstanding Term Loans (in which case the same shall have the same terms as the respective Class or Classes to which it is added) or (y) shall represent a new Class of term loans, in which case such new Class of term loans shall have the same terms and be entitled to all of the same rights and privileges (other than amortization and maturity date, which shall be required to be in compliance with the following proviso, and other than pricing), as the Term Loans;  provided that (i) the Incremental Extensions of Credit in the form of term loans shall not have a final maturity date earlier than the Maturity Date or the Extended Revolving Commitment Termination Date then applicable to the latest-maturing Loans, and (ii) Incremental Extensions of Credit in the form of a new Class of term loans shall not have a weighted average life to maturity that is shorter than that of the then remaining weighted average life to maturity of the Class of Term Loans with the then longest remaining weighted average life to maturity.
 
The Borrower shall, in consultation with the Administrative Agent, determine whether to offer the opportunity to provide all or portions of the requested Incremental Extensions of Credit to one or more Lenders (the “Existing Lenders”) that have provided the then existing Extended Revolving Commitments (and extensions of credit pursuant thereto) and/or then outstanding Term Loans (collectively, the “Existing Extensions of Credit”), provided that no Existing Lender shall be obligated to provide any Incremental Extension of Credit unless it so agrees, and/or one or more additional banks, financial institutions or other Persons, it being understood that each bank, financial institution or other Person that elects to extend Incremental Extensions of Credit (each, an “Additional Lender”) shall be required to be reasonably satisfactory to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (unless the Additional Lender is an Existing Lender) and, in the case of Incremental Extensions of Credit in the form of Extended Revolving Loans, the Issuing Banks, and shall become a Lender under this Agreement (or in the case of an Existing Lender, shall become an Additional Lender with respect to its Incremental Extensions of Credit) pursuant to an amendment (an “Incremental Facility Amendment”) to this Agreement giving effect to the modifications permitted by this Section and, as appropriate, the other Loan Documents and executed only by each Loan Party, each Additional Lender and the Administrative Agent.  Commitments in respect of Incremental Extensions of Credit shall be Commitments under this Agreement.  An Incremental Facility Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section.  The effectiveness of any Incremental Facility Amendment shall be subject to the satisfaction on the date thereof (each, an “Incremental Facility Closing Date”) of each of the following conditions:  (i) the conditions set forth in Section 3.2 (it being understood that all references to “the date of such Borrowing” in such Section 3.2 shall be deemed to refer to the Incremental Facility Closing Date), (ii) the Borrower and the Subsidiary Loan Parties shall have delivered such amendments, modifications and/or supplements to the Security Documents as are necessary or, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent, desirable to ensure that the Incremental Extensions of Credit are secured by, and entitled to the benefits of, the Security Documents, (iii) the Administrative Agent shall have received copies of resolutions executed by (x) the Borrower, authorizing the incurrence of such Incremental Extensions of Credit and (y) each other Loan Party, stating that such Incremental Extensions of Credit are entitled to benefits of the Security Documents and other Loan Documents and (iv) the Borrower shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent an opinion or opinions, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, from counsel to the Borrower reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and dated such date, covering such of the matters set forth in the opinions of counsel delivered to the Administrative Agent on the Fourth Restatement Date pursuant to Section 3.1(b)(v) as may be reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, and such other matters as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request (including the matters described in immediately preceding clause (iii)).  At the time of any provision of Revolving Commitments constituting Incremental Extensions of Credit pursuant to this Section, the Borrower shall, in coordination with the Administrative Agent, repay outstanding Extended Revolving Loans of certain of the Lenders with outstanding Extended Revolving Loans, and incur additional Extended Revolving Loans from certain other Lenders with outstanding Extended Revolving Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments (including the Additional Lenders with outstanding Extended Revolving Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments), in each case to the extent necessary so that all of the Lenders with Extended Revolving Commitments participate in each outstanding Borrowing of Extended Revolving Loans pro rata on the basis of their respective Extended Revolving Commitments (after giving effect to any increase in the Extended Revolving Commitments pursuant to this Section) and with the Borrower being obligated to pay to the respective Lenders any costs of the type referred to in Section 2.20 in connection therewith.
 
Section 2.26 Replacement of a Lender. If (i) Borrower is required pursuant to Section 2.19 or 2.21 to make any additional payment to any Lender, (ii) any Lender refuses to consent to a proposed amendment, modification, waiver, discharge or termination with respect to this Agreement that requires the consent of all Lenders (or all affected Lenders) pursuant to Section 10.2 and the same has been approved by the Required Lenders or all other affected Lenders, as applicable, or (iii) any Lender is a Defaulting Lender (any Lender described in clause (i), clause (ii) or clause (iii) being an “Affected Lender”), the Borrower may elect to replace the Revolving Commitment and/or Term Loans, as applicable, of such Affected Lender, provided that no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such termination or replacement, and provided further that, concurrently with such replacement, (y) another bank or other Person that is satisfactory to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall agree, as of such date, to purchase for cash at par, the Revolving Credit Exposure and Term Loans of the Affected Lender pursuant to an Assignment and Acceptance and to become a Lender for all purposes under this Agreement and to assume all obligations of the Affected Lender to be terminated as of such date and to comply with the requirements of Section 10.4 applicable to assignments, and (z) the Borrower shall pay to such Affected Lender in immediately available funds on the day of such replacement (A) all interest, fees and other amounts then accrued and unpaid that are owing to such Affected Lender by the Borrower hereunder to and including the date of termination, including payments due to such Affected Lender under Sections 2.19 and 2.21, and (B) an amount, if any, equal to the payment that would have been due to such Lender on the day of such replacement under Section 2.20 had the Loans of such Affected Lender been prepaid on such date rather than sold to the replacement Lender, in each case to the extent not paid by the purchasing lender.
 
Section 2.27 Defaulting Lenders.
 
(a)           If any Extended Revolving Lender becomes, and during the period it remains, a Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender, the following provisions shall apply, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement:
 
(1)           the LC Exposure and Swingline Exposure of such Defaulting Lender will, subject to the limitation in the first proviso below, automatically be reallocated (effective on the day such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender) among the Non-Defaulting Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective Extended Revolving Commitments;  provided that (a) the sum of each Non-Defaulting Lender’s total Extended Revolving Credit Exposure may not in any event exceed the Extended Revolving Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender as in effect at the time of such reallocation and (b) neither such reallocation nor any payment by a Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant thereto will constitute a waiver or release of any claim the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank, the Swingline Lender or any other Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender or cause such Defaulting Lender to be a Non-Defaulting Lender; and
 
(2)           to the extent that any portion (the “unreallocated portion”) of the LC Exposure and Swingline Exposure of any Defaulting Lender cannot be so reallocated, for any reason, or with respect to the LC Exposure and Swingline Exposure of any Potential Defaulting Lender, the Borrower will, not later than two (2) Business Days after demand by the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the applicable Issuing Bank and/or the Swingline Lender), (a) Cash Collateralize the obligations of the Borrower to the Issuing Banks or Swingline Lender in respect of such LC Exposure or Swingline Exposure, as the case may be, in an amount at least equal to the aggregate amount of the unreallocated portion of the LC Exposure and Swingline Exposure of such Defaulting Lender or the LC Exposure and Swingline Exposure of such Potential Defaulting Lender, or (b) in the case of such Swingline exposure, prepay (subject to clause (4) below) and/or Cash Collateralize in full the unreallocated portion thereof, or (c) make other arrangements satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Swingline Lender in their sole discretion to protect them against the risk of non-payment by such Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender;

provided that (a) the sum of each Non-Defaulting Lender’s Extended Revolving Credit Exposure may not in any event exceed the Extended Revolving Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender, and (b) neither any such reallocation nor any payment by a Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant thereto nor any such Cash Collateralization or reduction will constitute a waiver or release of any claim the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank, the Swingline Lender or any other Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender, or cause such Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender to be a Non-Defaulting Lender;

(b)           If the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Swingline Lender agree in writing that any Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender or a Potential Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Potential Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein, the LC Exposure and the Swingline Exposure of the other Extended Revolving Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Extended Revolving Commitment, and such Lender will purchase at par such portion of outstanding Extended Revolving Loans of the other Lenders and/or make such other adjustments as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of the Lenders to be on a pro rata basis in accordance with their respective Extended Revolving Commitments, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender and will be a Non-Defaulting Lender (and such Extended Revolving Credit Exposure of each Lender will automatically be adjusted on a prospective basis to reflect the foregoing), and if any cash collateral has been posted with respect to such Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will promptly return such cash collateral to the Borrower; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while such Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender to Non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder.

provided that (a) the sum of each Non-Defaulting Lender’s Extended Revolving Credit Exposure may not in any event exceed the Extended Revolving Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender, and (b) neither any such reallocation nor any payment by a Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant thereto nor any such Cash Collateralization or reduction will constitute a waiver or release of any claim the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank, the Swingline Lender or any other Extended Revolving Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender, or cause such Defaulting Lender or Potential Defaulting Lender to be a Non-Defaulting Lender.

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
 
The Borrower represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and each Lender as follows:
 
Section 4.1 Existence; Power. The Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries (i) is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing as a corporation or limited liability company, as applicable, under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, (ii) has all requisite power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted, and (iii) is duly qualified to do business, and is in good standing, in each jurisdiction where such qualification is required, except where a failure to be so qualified could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

                 ARTICLE IX                                
 

 
THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT
 
Section 9.1 Appointment of Administrative Agent.
 
(a) Each Lender irrevocably appoints SunTrust Bank as the Administrative Agent and authorizes it to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, together with all such actions and powers that are reasonably incidental thereto. The Administrative Agent may perform any of its duties hereunder or under the other Loan Documents by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions set forth in this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and the Related Parties of the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent.
 
(b) Each Issuing Bank shall act on behalf of the Extended Revolving Lenders with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith until such time and except for so long as the Administrative Agent may agree at the request of the Required Lenders to act for each Issuing Bank with respect thereto; provided, that each Issuing Bank shall have all the benefits and immunities (i) provided to the Administrative Agent in this Article IX with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by such Issuing Bank in connection with Letters of Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and the application and agreements for letters of credit pertaining to the Letters of Credit as fully as though the term “Administrative Agent” as used in this Article IX included each Issuing Bank with respect to such acts or omissions and (ii) as additionally provided in this Agreement with respect to each Issuing Bank.
 
Section 9.2 Nature of Duties of Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) the Administrative Agent shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except those discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Loan Documents that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.2), and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.2) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of any Default or Event of Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower or any Lender, and the Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with any Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements, or other terms and conditions set forth in any Loan Document, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of any Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article III or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent.
 
Section 9.3 Lack of Reliance on the Administrative Agent. Each of the Lenders, the Swingline Lender and each Issuing Bank acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each of the Lenders, the Swingline Lender and the Issuing Banks also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking of any action under or based on this Agreement, any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
 
Section 9.4 Certain Rights of the Administrative Agent. If the Administrative Agent shall request instructions from the Required Lenders with respect to any action or actions (including the failure to act) in connection with this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to refrain from such act or taking such act, unless and until it shall have received instructions from such Lenders; and the Administrative Agent shall not incur liability to any Person by reason of so refraining. Without limiting the foregoing, no Lender shall have any right of action whatsoever against the Administrative Agent as a result of the Administrative Agent acting or refraining from acting hereunder in accordance with the instructions of the Required Lenders where required by the terms of this Agreement.
 
Section 9.5 Reliance by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person. The Administrative Agent may also rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made by the proper Person and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (including counsel for the Borrower), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts.
 
Section 9.6 The Administrative Agent in its Individual Capacity. The bank serving as the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement and any other Loan Document in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise or refrain from exercising the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent; and the terms “Lenders”, “Required Lenders”, “holders of notes”, or any similar terms shall, unless the context clearly otherwise indicates, include the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity. The bank acting as the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Borrower as if it were not the Administrative Agent hereunder.
 
Section 9.7 Successor Administrative Agent.
 
(a) The Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent, subject to the approval by the Borrower provided that no Default or Event of Default shall exist at such time. If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed, and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders and the Issuing Banks, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, which shall be a commercial bank organized under the laws of the United States of America or any state thereof or a bank which maintains an office in the United States, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000.
 
(b) Upon the acceptance of its appointment as the Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. If within 45 days after written notice is given of the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation under this Section no successor Administrative Agent shall have been appointed and shall have accepted such appointment, then on such 45th day (i) the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation shall become effective, (ii) the retiring Administrative Agent shall thereupon be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Loan Documents and (iii) the Required Lenders shall thereafter perform all duties of the retiring Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents until such time as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent as provided above. After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article IX shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Administrative Agent and its representatives and agents in respect of any actions taken or not taken by any of them while it was serving as the Administrative Agent.
 
(c)           In addition to the foregoing, if an Extended Revolving Lender becomes, and during the period it remains, a Defaulting Lender, and if any Default has arisen from a failure of the Borrower to comply with Section 2.27(a), then each Issuing Bank and the Swingline Lender may, upon prior written notice to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, resign as Issuing Bank or as Swingline Lender, as the case may be, effective at the close of business New York time on a date specified in such notice (which date may not be less than five Business Days after the date of such notice).
 
Section 9.8 Withholding Tax.  To the extent required by any applicable law, the Administrative Agent may withhold from any interest payment to any Lender an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding tax.  If the Internal Revenue Service or any authority of the United States or other jurisdiction asserts a claim that the Administrative Agent did not properly withhold tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender (because the appropriate form was not delivered, was not properly executed, or because such Lender failed to notify the Administrative Agent of a change in circumstances that rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax ineffective, or for any other reason), such Lender shall indemnify the Administrative Agent (to the extent that the Administrative Agent has not already been reimbursed by the Borrower and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so) fully for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Administrative Agent as tax or otherwise, including penalties and interest, together with all expenses incurred, including legal expenses, allocated staff costs and any out of pocket expenses.

Section 9.9 Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim.  In case of the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceeding relative to any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or any Revolving Credit Exposure shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on the Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:
 
(i)           to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans or Revolving Credit Exposure and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders, the Issuing Banks and the Administrative Agent under Section 10.3) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and
 
(ii)           to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same.
 
Any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender and each Issuing Bank to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, if the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders and the Issuing Banks, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent under Section 10.3.
 
Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender or Issuing Bank any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Lender or to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender or Issuing Bank in any such proceeding.
 
Section 9.10 Authorization to Execute other Loan Documents.  Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to execute on behalf of all Lenders all Loan Documents other than this Agreement.
 
Section 9.11 Documentation Agent; Syndication Agent.  Each Lender hereby designates U.S. Bank National Association and Regions Bank as Co-Documentation Agents and agrees that the Co-Documentation Agents shall have no duties or obligations as such to any Lender or any Loan Party under any Loan Documents.  Each Lender hereby designates JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and Fifth Third Bank, N.A. as Co-Syndication Agents and agrees that the Co-Syndication Agents shall have no duties or obligations as such to any Lender or any Loan Party under any Loan Documents.

All such notices and other communications shall, when transmitted by overnight delivery, or faxed, be effective when delivered for overnight (next-day) delivery, or transmitted in legible form by facsimile machine, respectively, or if mailed, upon the third Business Day after the date deposited into the mails or if delivered, upon delivery; provided, that notices delivered to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender shall not be effective until actually received by such Person at its address specified in this Section.
 
                      (ii)           Any agreement of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders herein to receive certain notices by telephone or facsimile is solely for the convenience and at the request of the Borrower. The Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders shall be entitled to rely on the authority of any Person purporting to be a Person authorized by the Borrower to give such notice and the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders shall not have any liability to the Borrower or other Person on account of any action taken or not taken by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks or the Lenders in reliance upon such telephonic or facsimile notice. The obligation of the Borrower to repay the Loans and all other Obligations hereunder shall not be affected in any way or to any extent by any failure of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders to receive written confirmation of any telephonic or facsimile notice or the receipt by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders of a confirmation which is at variance with the terms understood by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders to be contained in any such telephonic or facsimile notice.
 
(b)           Electronic Communications.  Notices and other communications to the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Issuing Banks hereunder may be delivered or furnished by electronic communication (including e-mail and Internet or intranet websites).  Without limiting the foregoing, such notices and other communications shall be deemed to have been delivered when the Borrower provides notice to the Administrative Agent by e-mail that such materials are posted on the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov or on another website accessible to the Administrative Agent.  The Borrower agrees that the Administrative Agent may make such materials, as well as any other written information, documents, instruments and other material relating to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or any other materials or matters relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby, available to the Lenders by posting such notices on Intralinks or a substantially similar electronic system.  The foregoing shall not apply to notices under Section 5.2 nor shall the foregoing apply to notices to any Lender or any Issuing Bank pursuant to Article II if such Lender or Issuing Bank, as applicable, has notified the Administrative Agent that it is incapable of receiving notices under such Article by electronic communication.
 
Section 10.2 Waiver; Amendments.
 
(a) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder or any other Loan Document, and no course of dealing between the Borrower and the Administrative Agent or any Lender, shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power hereunder or thereunder. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan or the issuance of a Letter of Credit shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default or Event of Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Issuing Bank may have had notice or knowledge of such Default or Event of Default at the time.
 
(b) No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, nor consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Borrower and the Required Lenders or the Borrower and the Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given; provided, that no amendment or waiver shall: (i) increase the Commitment of any Lender without the written consent of such Lender, (ii) reduce the principal amount of any Loan or LC Disbursement or reduce the rate of interest thereon, or reduce any fees payable hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (iii) postpone the date fixed for any payment of any principal of, or interest on, any Loan or LC Disbursement or interest thereon or any fees hereunder or reduce the amount of, waive or excuse any such payment, or postpone the scheduled date for the termination or reduction of any Commitment, without the written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (iv) change Section 2.22(b) or (c) in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby, without the written consent of each Lender, (v) change any of the provisions of this Section or the definition of “Required Lenders”, “Required Revolving Lenders” or any other provision hereof specifying the number or percentage of Lenders which are required to waive, amend or modify any rights hereunder or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder, without the consent of each Lender, (vi) release any guarantor or limit the liability of any such guarantor under any guaranty agreement without the written consent of each Lender, (vii) release all or substantially all collateral (if any) securing any of the Obligations without the written consent of each Lender or (viii) amend, waive or change the allocation of prepayments set forth in Section 2.13(e) or Section 8.2 without the consent of the holders of more than 50% of the aggregate outstanding Term Loans and the Required Revolving Lenders; provided further, that no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights, duties or obligations of the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender or the Issuing Bank without the prior written consent of such Person.  Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this Agreement may be amended and restated without the consent of any Lender (but with the consent of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent) if, upon giving effect to such amendment and restatement, such Lender shall no longer be a party to this Agreement (as so amended and restated), the Commitments of such Lender shall have terminated (but such Lender shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.19, 2.20, 2.21 and 10.3), such Lender shall have no other commitment or other obligation hereunder and shall have been paid in full all principal, interest and other amounts owing to it or accrued for its account under this Agreement.
 
Section 10.3 Expenses; Indemnification.
 
(a) The Borrower shall pay (i) all reasonable, out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein, the preparation and administration of the Loan Documents and any amendments, modifications or waivers thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated in this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be consummated), (ii) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by any Issuing Bank in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder and (iii) all out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of outside counsel and the allocated cost of inside counsel) incurred by the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender (provided that the Borrower shall not be obligated to pay fees and expenses for more than one counsel, other than special local counsel, for the Lenders) in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with this Agreement, including its rights under this Section, or in connection with the Loans made or any Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans or Letters of Credit.
 
(b) The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent (and any sub-agent thereof), each Lender and Issuing Bank, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee), and shall indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnitee from all reasonable fees and time charges and disbursements for attorneys who may be employees of any Indemnitee, incurred by any Indemnitee or asserted against any Indemnitee by any third party or by the Borrower or any other Loan Party arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, (ii) any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use or proposed use of the proceeds therefrom (including any refusal by any Issuing Bank to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit), (iii) any actual or alleged presence or Release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Environmental Liability related in any way to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory, whether brought by a third party or by the Borrower or any other Loan Party, and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto, provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses (x) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee or (y) result from a claim brought by the Borrower or any other Loan Party against an Indemnitee for breach of such Indemnitee’s obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document, if the Borrower or such Loan Party has obtained a final and nonappealable judgment in its favor on such claim as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.  No Indemnitee shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by others of any information or other materials obtained through Syntrak or any other Internet or intranet website, except as a result of such Indemnitee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and nonappealable judgment.
 
(c) The Borrower shall pay, and hold the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and each of the Lenders harmless from and against, any and all present and future stamp, documentary, and other similar taxes with respect to this Agreement and any other Loan Documents, any collateral described therein, or any payments due thereunder, and save the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and each Lender harmless from and against any and all liabilities with respect to or resulting from any delay or omission to pay such taxes.
 
(d) To the extent that the Borrower fails to pay any amount required to be paid to the Administrative Agent, an Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender under clauses (a), (b) or (c) hereof, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender, as the case may be, such Lender’s Pro Rata Share (determined as of the time that the unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided, that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified payment, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender in its capacity as such.
 
(e) To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Borrower shall not assert, and hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to actual or direct damages) arising out of, in connection with or as a result of, this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the transactions contemplated therein, any Loan or any Letter of Credit or the use of proceeds thereof.
 
(f) All amounts due under this Section shall be payable promptly after written demand therefor.
 
Section 10.4 Successors and Assigns.
 
(a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Borrower may not assign or transfer any of its rights hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by the Borrower without such consent shall be null and void).
 
(b) Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans and LC Exposure at the time owing to it); provided, that (i) except in the case of (x) an assignment of a Revolving Commitment to a Lender or (y) an assignment of a Term Loan to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund, each of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent must give their prior written consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), (ii) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund or an assignment of the entire amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitment or Loan hereunder or an assignment while an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the amount of the Commitment or Loan of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Acceptance with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than $1,000,000 (unless the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall otherwise consent), (iii) each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, except that this clause (iii) shall not prohibit any Lender from assigning all or a part of its rights and obligations in any Tranche of Loans without a pro rata assignment of its rights and obligations under any other Tranche; (iv) the assigning Lender and the assignee shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Acceptance, together with a processing and recordation fee payable by the assigning Lender or the assignee (as determined between such Persons) in an amount equal to $3,500 (unless waived by the Administrative Agent) and (v) such assignee, if it is not a Lender, shall deliver a duly completed Administrative Questionnaire to the Administrative Agent; provided, that any consent of the Borrower otherwise required hereunder shall not be required in connection with the initial syndication of the Loans or if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; provided, further that the Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within 5 Business Days after having received notice thereof from the Administrative Agent. Upon the execution and delivery of the Assignment and Acceptance and payment by such assignee to the assigning Lender of an amount equal to the purchase price agreed between such Persons, such assignee shall become a party to this Agreement and any other Loan Documents to which such assigning Lender is a party and, to the extent of such interest assigned by such Assignment and Acceptance, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender shall be released from its obligations hereunder to a corresponding extent (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.19, 2.20, 2.21 and 10.3. Upon the consummation of any such assignment hereunder, the assigning Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements to have new notes issued if so requested by either or both the assigning Lender or the assignee. Any assignment or other transfer by a Lender that does not fully comply with the terms of this clause (b) shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale of a participation pursuant to clause (c) below.  Contemporaneous assignments by or to related Approved Funds shall be treated as a single assignment for purposes of the minimum assignment amount and processing fees provided in this subsection.
 
(c) Any Lender may at any time, without the consent of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or the Swingline Lender, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment, the Loans owing to it and its LC Exposure); provided, that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of its obligations hereunder, and (iii) the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender, the Issuing Banks and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Any agreement between such Lender and the Participant with respect to such participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right and responsibility to enforce this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the sole right to approve any amendment, modification, consent or waiver regarding this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; provided, that such participation agreement may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification, consent or waiver regarding this Agreement described in the first proviso of Section 10.2(b) that affects the Participant. The Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.19, 2.20 and 2.21 to the same extent as if it were a Lender hereunder and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b); provided, that no Participant shall be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.19, 2.20 and 2.21 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant unless the sale of such participation is made with the Borrower’s prior written consent. To the extent permitted by law, the Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.22 as though it were a Lender, provided, that such Participant agrees to share with the Lenders the proceeds thereof in accordance with Section 2.22 as fully as if it were a Lender hereunder, further provided that no Participant shall be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.22 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant unless the sale of such participation is made with the Borrower's prior written consent.  A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.21 unless the Borrower is notified of such participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the benefit of the Borrower, to comply with Section 2.21(e) as though it were a Lender hereunder.
 
(d) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement and its notes (if any) to secure its obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank without complying with this Section; provided, that no such pledge or assignment shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.  Further, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any Lender that is an Approved Fund may create a security interest in all or any portion of the Loans owing to it and the related notes, if any, held by it to the trustee for holders of obligations owed by such Approved Fund or to other holders of obligations owed, or securities issued, by such Approved Fund as security for such obligations or securities; provided that unless and until such trustee or holder actually becomes a Lender in compliance with the other provisions of clause (b) of this Section, (i) no such pledge shall release the pledging Lender from any of its obligations under the Loan Documents, (ii) such trustee or holder shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of a Lender under the Loan Documents even though such trustee or holder may have acquired ownership rights with respect to the pledged interest through foreclosure or otherwise (unless such trustee or holder has complied with the requirements of clause (b) of this Section).
 
(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any Lender (a “Granting Lender”) may grant to a special purpose funding vehicle (an “SPV”), identified as such in writing from time to time by the Granting Lender to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, the option to provide to the Borrower all or any part of any Loan that such Granting Lender would otherwise be obligated to make to the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement; provided, that (i) nothing herein shall constitute a commitment by any SPV to make any Loan and (ii) if an SPV elects not to exercise such option or otherwise fails to provide all or any part of any Loan, the Granting Lender shall be obligated to make such Loan pursuant to the terms hereof. The making of a Loan by an SPV hereunder shall utilize the Commitment of the Granting Lender to the same extent, and as if such Loan were made by such Granting Lender. Each party hereto hereby agrees that no SPV shall be liable for any indemnity or similar payment obligation under this Agreement (all liability for which shall remain with the Granting Lender). In furtherance of the foregoing, each party hereto hereby agrees (which agreement shall survive the termination of this Agreement) that, prior to the date that is one year and one day after the payment in full of all outstanding commercial paper or other senior indebtedness of any SPV, it will not institute against, or join any other person in instituting against, such SPV any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings under the laws of the United States or any State.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, any SPV may (i) with notice to, but without the prior written consent of, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent and without paying any processing fee therefor, assign all or a portion of its interests in any Loans to the Granting Lender or to any financial institutions (consented to by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent) providing liquidity and/or credit support to or for the account of such SPV to support the funding or maintenance of Loans and (ii) disclose on a confidential basis any non-public information relating to its Loans to any rating agency, commercial paper dealer or provider of any surety, guarantee or credit or liquidity enhancement to such SPV. As this Section 10.4(e) applies to any particular SPV, this Section may not be amended without the written consent of such SPV.
 
(f) The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices in Atlanta, Georgia a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amount of the Loans, Extended Revolving Credit Exposure and Non-Extended Revolving Credit Exposure owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”).  Information contained in the Register with respect to any Lender shall be available for inspection by such Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice; information contained in the Register shall also be available for inspection by the Borrower at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.  The entries in the Register shall be presumed correct, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary.  In establishing and maintaining the Register, the Administrative Agent shall serve as the Borrower’s agent solely for tax purposes and solely with respect to the actions described in this Section 10.4(f), and the Borrower hereby agrees that, to the extent SunTrust Bank serves in such capacity, SunTrust Bank and its officers, directors, employees, agents, sub-agents and affiliates shall constitute “Indemnitees.”
 
Section 10.5 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.
 
(a) In accordance with Sections 5-1401 and 5-1402 of the New York General Obligations Law, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be construed in accordance with and be governed by the law (without giving effect to the conflict of law principles thereof) of the State of New York.
 
(b) The Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York court or, to the extent permitted by applicable law, such Federal court.  Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding  that is not subject to further appeal shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.  Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document against the Borrower or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.
 
(c) The Borrower irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such suit, action or proceeding described in paragraph (b) of this Section and brought in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
 
(d) Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to the service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 10.1. Nothing in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party hereto to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.
 
Section 10.6 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.
 
Section 10.7 Right of Setoff. In addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under applicable law and not by way of limitation of any such rights, each Lender and Issuing Bank shall have the right, at any time or from time to time upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, without prior notice to the Borrower, any such notice being expressly waived by the Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law, to set off and apply against all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) of the Borrower at any time held or other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Issuing Bank to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against any and all Obligations held by such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, irrespective of whether such Lender or Issuing Bank shall have made demand hereunder and although such Obligations may be unmatured. Each Lender and Issuing Bank agree promptly to notify the Administrative Agent and the Borrower after any such set-off and any application made by such Lender or Issuing Bank, as the case may be; provided, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.  Each Lender and Issuing Bank agrees to apply all amounts collected from any such set-off to the Obligations before applying such amounts to any other Indebtedness or other obligations owed by the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries to such Lender or Issuing Bank.
 
Section 10.8 Counterparts; Integration. This Agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Agreement on any number of separate counterparts (including by telecopy), and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument. This Agreement, the other Loan Documents, and any separate letter agreement(s) relating to any fees payable to the Administrative Agent, the Lead Arrangers or any of their Affiliates constitute the entire agreement among the parties hereto and thereto regarding the subject matters hereof and thereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, oral or written, regarding such subject matters.  Delivery of executed signature pages to any Loan Document by facsimile or electronic mail transmission shall be effective as delivery of manually executed counterparts thereof.
 
Section 10.9 Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Borrower herein and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the making of any Loans and issuance of any Letters of Credit, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid or any Letter of Credit is outstanding and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 2.19, 2.20, 2.21, 10.3 and Article IX shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof. All representations and warranties made herein and in the certificates, reports, notices and other documents delivered pursuant to this Agreement shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and the making of the Loans and the issuance of the Letters of Credit.
 
Section 10.10 Severability. Any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such illegality, invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof or thereof; and the illegality, invalidity or unenforceability of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
 
Section 10.11 Confidentiality. Each of the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and each Lender agrees to take normal and reasonable precautions to maintain the confidentiality of any information designated in writing as confidential and provided to it by the Borrower or any Subsidiary, except that such information may be disclosed (i) to any Related Party of the Administrative Agent, any such Issuing Bank or any such Lender, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors, (ii) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (iii) to the extent requested by any regulatory agency or authority having jurisdiction, (iv) to the extent that such information becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section, or which becomes available to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank, any Lender or any Related Party of any of the foregoing on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrower, (v) in connection with the exercise of any remedy hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights hereunder, (vi) subject to provisions substantially similar to this Section, to any pledgee referred to in Section 10.4(d), or any actual or prospective assignee or Participant, or (vii) with the consent of the Borrower. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of any information as provided for in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such information as such Person would accord its own confidential information.
 
Section 10.12 Interest and Loan Charges Not to Exceed Maximum Amounts Allowed by Law. Anything in this Agreement, the Security Documents or any of the other Loan Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, in no event whatsoever, whether by reason of advancement of proceeds of the Loans, acceleration of the maturity of the unpaid balance of the Loans or otherwise, shall the interest and loan charges agreed to be paid to any Lender for the use of the money advanced or to be advanced hereunder exceed the maximum amounts collectible under applicable laws in effect from time to time. It is understood and agreed by the parties that, if for any reason whatsoever the interest or loan charges paid or contracted to be paid by Borrower in respect of the Loans shall exceed the maximum amounts collectible under applicable laws in effect from time to time, then ipso facto, the obligation to pay such interest and/or loan charges shall be reduced to the maximum amounts collectible under applicable laws in effect from time to time, and any amounts collected by any Lender that exceed such maximum amounts shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance of the Loans and/or refunded to Borrower so that at no time shall the interest or loan charges paid or payable in respect of the Loans exceed the maximum amounts permitted from time to time by applicable law.
 
Section 10.13 U.S. Patriot Act Notification.  The Administrative Agent and each Lender hereby notifies the Loan Parties that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the “Patriot Act”), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each Loan Party, which information includes the name and address of such Loan Party and other information that will allow such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, to identify such Loan Party in accordance with the Patriot Act.
 
Section 10.14 Location of Closing.  Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that it has delivered, with the intent to be bound, its executed counterparts of this Agreement to the Administrative Agent, c/o King & Spalding LLP, 1185 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York  10036.  Borrower acknowledges and agrees that it has delivered, with the intent to be bound, its executed counterparts of this Agreement and each other Loan Document, together with all other documents, instruments, opinions, certificates and other items required under Section 3.1, to the Administrative Agent, c/o King & Spalding LLP, 1185 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York  10036.  All parties agree that closing of the transactions contemplated by this Credit Agreement has occurred in New York.
 
Section 10.15 Amendment and Restatement.  Effective upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3.1, this Agreement amends, restates, supersedes and replaces the Existing Credit Agreement in its entirety.  This Agreement constitutes an amendment and restatement of the Existing Credit Agreement and is not, and is not intended by the parties to be, a novation of the Existing Credit Agreement.  All rights and obligations of the parties shall continue in effect, except as otherwise expressly set forth herein.  Without limiting the foregoing, no Default or Event of Default existing under the Existing Credit Agreement as of the Fourth Restatement Date shall be deemed waived or cured by this amendment and restatement thereof, except to the extent that such Default or Event of Default would not otherwise be a Default or Event of Default hereunder after giving effect to the provisions hereof.  The Revolving Commitments of the Lenders under this Agreement after giving effect to this amendment and restatement are set forth on Schedule II.  All references in the other Loan Documents to the Credit Agreement shall be deemed to refer to and mean this Agreement, as the same may be further amended, supplemented, and restated from time to time.
 
Section 10.16 Currency Conversion.  All payments under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be made in Dollars, except for Reimbursement Obligations with respect to Letters of Credit issued in any Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, which shall be repaid, including interest thereon, in such Acceptable Currency.  If any payment by the Borrower or the proceeds of any collateral shall be in a currency other than the currency required hereunder, such amount shall be converted into the currency required hereunder at the rate reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Bank, as applicable, as the rate quoted by it in accordance with methods customarily used by such Person for such or similar purposes as the spot rate for the purchase by such Person of the required currency with the currency of actual payment through its principal foreign exchange trading office (including, in the case of the Administrative Agent, any Affiliate) at approximately 11:00 A.M. (local time at such office) two Business Days prior to the effective date of such conversion, provided that the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Bank, as applicable, may obtain such spot rate from another financial institution actively engaged in foreign currency exchange if the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Bank, as applicable, does not then have a spot rate for the required currency.  The parties hereto hereby agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so under applicable law, that (i) if for the purposes of obtaining any judgment or award it becomes necessary to convert from any currency other than the currency required hereunder into the currency required hereunder any amount in connection with the Obligations, then the conversion shall be made as provided above on the Business Day before the day on which the judgment or award is given, (ii) in the event that there is a change in the applicable conversion rate prevailing between the Business Day before the day on which the judgment or award is given and the date of payment, the Borrower will pay to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Issuing Banks and Lenders, such additional amounts (if any) as may be necessary to assure that the amount paid on such date is the amount in such other currency, which when converted at the conversion rate described herein on the date of payment, is the amount then due in the currency required hereunder, and (iii) any amount due from the Borrower under this Section 10.16 shall be due as a separate debt and shall not be affected by judgment or award being obtained for any other sum due.
 
Section 10.17 Exchange Rates.
 
(a)           Determination of Exchange Rates.  Not later than 11:00 a.m. on each Calculation Date or upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, if any Letters of Credit are outstanding on such date in any Acceptable Currency other than Dollars, the Administrative Agent shall (i) determine the Exchange Rate as of such Calculation Date with respect to such Acceptable Currency as applicable and (ii) give notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower.  The Exchange Rate so determined shall become effective on the first Business Day immediately following the relevant Calculation Date or upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (a “Reset Date”), as the case may be, and shall remain effective until the next succeeding Reset Date, and shall for all purposes of this Agreement (other than Section 10.16 or any other provision expressly requiring the use of a more current Exchange Rate) be the Exchange Rate employed in determining the Dollar Equivalent of any amounts of such Acceptable Currency (as applicable).

(b)           Notice of Foreign Currency Letters of Credit.   Not later than 11:00 a.m. on each date on which any Letter of Credit denominated in an Acceptable Currency other than Dollars is made or issued, the Administrative Agent shall (i) determine the Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate principal amounts of the Letters of Credit denominated in Acceptable Currencies other than Dollars and (ii) notify the Lenders and the Borrower of the results of such determination.
