THIS SECURITY AGREEMENT (“Security Agreement”) is entered into as of September14, 2012 (“Effective Date”), by and among Magnetek, Inc. (“Magnetek” or “Grantor”), a Delaware corporation, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (“PBGC” or “Secured Party”, and collectively with Magnetek, the “Parties”), a wholly-owned United States government corporation created by Title IV of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), acting on behalf of the Magnetek FlexCare Plus Retirement Pension Plan (the “Plan”).
A.Magnetek, a Delaware corporation, which maintains its headquarters in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, is in the business of developing, manufacturing, and marketing digital power and motion control systems for material handling, people-moving, renewable energy, and mining applications.
B.Magnetek sponsors the Plan.
C.Magnetek sought a waiver of the minimum funding standards for the Plan's plan year which began on January 1, 2011, pursuant to Section 412(c) of the Code (as defined below) and Section 302(c) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”).
D.By letter dated October 21, 2011 (the “Waiver Letter”), the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) granted such waiver for the Plan (the “Waiver”).
E.The IRS required that Magnetek provide collateral acceptable to the PBGC as a condition of granting the Waiver, and pursuant to Section 412(c)(4)(A) of the Code and Section 302(c)(4)(A) of ERISA, such security may be perfected and enforced only by the PBGC on behalf of the Plan.
F.The aggregate amount of the outstanding balance of the Waiver equals $16.4 million, which amount will be amortized over a five plan year period under Section 430(e) of the Code, payable in quarterly installments and other required payments with interest thereon as prescribed by Section 430 of the Code (the “Obligations”).
G.Magnetek has agreed to provide to PBGC as collateral security for the Obligations a lien on all of Magnetek's currently owned and after-acquired personal property as provided in this Security Agreement in order to satisfy the condition of the Waiver.

All rights, remedies and powers granted to PBGC hereunder, under the UCC or other applicable law, are cumulative, not exclusive, and enforceable, in PBGC's sole discretion, alternatively, successively, or concurrently on any one or more occasions, and shall include, without limitation, the right to apply to a court of equity for an injunction to restrain a breach or threatened breach by Grantor of this Security Agreement.
(b) Without limiting the foregoing, at any time after a Default has occurred, PBGC may, in its sole discretion and without limitation: (1) accelerate the payment of all Secured Obligations and demand immediate payment thereof to PBGC (provided, that, upon the occurrence of a Default under Section 5(i) above, all Secured Obligations shall automatically become immediately due and payable) whereupon the Secured Obligations shall be immediately due and payable without presentment, demand, protest or formalities of any kind, all of which Grantor hereby waives, (2) with or without judicial process or the aid or assistance of others, enter upon any premises on or in which any of the Collateral may be located and take possession of the Collateral or any portion of the Collateral, (3) require Grantor, at its expense, to assemble and make available to PBGC any part or all of the Collateral at any place and time designated by PBGC, (4) collect, foreclose, receive, appropriate, setoff and realize upon any and all Collateral, (5) remove any or all of the Collateral from any premises on or in which the same may be located for the purpose of effecting the sale, foreclosure or other disposition thereof or for any other purpose, (6) sell, lease, transfer, assign, deliver or otherwise dispose of any and all Collateral (including entering into contracts with respect thereto, public or private sales at any exchange, broker's board, office of PBGC or elsewhere) at such prices or terms as PBGC may deem reasonable, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery, with the PBGC having the right to purchase the whole or any part of the Collateral at any such public sale, all of the foregoing being free from any right or equity of redemption of Grantor, which right or equity of redemption is hereby expressly waived and released by Grantor. If any of the Collateral is sold or leased by PBGC upon credit terms or for future delivery, the Secured Obligations shall not be reduced as a result thereof until payment therefor is finally collected by PBGC. If notice of disposition of Collateral is required by law, ten days prior notice by PBGC to Grantor designating the time and place of any public sale or the time after which any private sale or other intended disposition of Collateral is to be made, shall be deemed to be reasonable notice thereof and Grantor waives any other notice. In the event PBGC institutes an action to recover any Collateral or seeks recovery of any Collateral by way of prejudgment remedy, Grantor waives the posting of any bond which might otherwise be required.
(c) At any time after a Default has occurred, PBGC may, in its sole discretion, enforce Grantor's rights against any account debtor, in respect of any accounts or other Receivables. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, PBGC may at such time (1) notify any or all account debtors, secondary obligors or other obligors in respect thereof that Receivables have been assigned to PBGC and that PBGC has a security interest therein and PBGC may direct any or all accounts debtors to make payment of receivables directly to PBGC, (2) extend the time of payment of, compromise, settle or adjust for cash, credit, return of merchandise or otherwise, and upon any terms or conditions, any and all receivables or other obligations included in the Collateral and thereby discharge or release the account
debtor or any secondary obligors or other obligors in respect thereof without affecting any of the Secured Obligations, (3) demand, collect or enforce payment of any receivables or such other obligations, but without any duty to do so, and PBGC shall not be liable for its failure to collect or enforce the payment thereof nor for the negligence of its agents or attorneys with respect thereto, and (4) take whatever other action PBGC may deem necessary or desirable for the protection of its interests. At any time after a Default has occurred, at PBGC's request, Grantor shall cause all invoices and statements sent to any account debtor to state that the accounts and such other obligations have been assigned to PBGC and are payable directly and only to PBGC, and Grantor shall deliver to PBGC such originals of documents evidencing the sale and delivery of goods or the performance of services giving rise to any accounts as PBGC may require.
(d) To the extent that applicable law imposes duties on PBGC to exercise remedies in a commercially reasonable manner (and such duties cannot be waived under such law), Grantor acknowledges and agrees that it is not commercially unreasonable for PBGC: (1) to fail to incur expenses reasonably deemed significant by PBGC to prepare Collateral for disposition or otherwise to complete raw material or work in process into finished goods or other finished products for disposition, (2) to fail to obtain third party consents for access to Collateral to be disposed of, or to obtain or, if not required by other law, to fail to obtain consents of any governmental authority or other third party for the collection or disposition of Collateral to be collected or disposed of, (3) to fail to exercise collection remedies against account debtors, secondary obligors or other persons obligated on Collateral or to remove liens or encumbrances on or any adverse claims against Collateral, (4) to exercise collection remedies against account debtors and other persons obligated on Collateral directly or through the use of collection agencies and other collection specialists, (5) to advertise dispositions of Collateral through publications or media of general circulation, whether or not the Collateral is of a specialized nature, (6) to contact other persons, whether or not in the same business as Grantor, for expressions of interest in acquiring all or any portion of the Collateral, (7) to hire one or more professional auctioneers to assist in the disposition of Collateral, whether or not such Collateral is of a specialized nature, (8) to dispose of Collateral by utilizing Internet sites that provide for the auction of assets of the types included in the Collateral or that have the reasonable capability of doing so, or that match buyers and sellers of assets, (9) to dispose of assets in wholesale rather than retail markets, (10) to disclaim disposition warranties, (11) to purchase insurance or credit enhancements to insure PBGC against risks of loss, collection or disposition of Collateral or to provide to PBGC a guaranteed return from the collection or disposition of Collateral, or (12) to the extent deemed appropriate by PBGC, to obtain the services of other brokers, investment bankers, consultants and other professionals to assist PBGC in the collection or disposition of any of the Collateral. Grantor acknowledges that the purpose of this Section is to provide non-exhaustive indications of actions and omissions by the PBGC which would not be commercially unreasonable in PBGC's exercise of remedies against the Collateral and that other actions or omissions by PBGC shall not be deemed commercially unreasonable solely or partly on account of not being indicated in this Section. Without limitation of the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section shall be construed to grant any rights to Grantor or to impose any duties on PBGC that would not have been granted or imposed by this Security Agreement or by applicable law in the absence of this Section.
(e) At any time after a Default has occurred, PBGC shall apply the cash proceeds of Collateral actually received by PBGC from any sale, lease, foreclosure or other disposition of the Collateral to payment of the Secured Obligations, in whole or in part and in accordance with the terms hereof, whether or not then due or may hold such proceeds as cash collateral for the Secured Obligations.
