Each Revolving Loan which is an LIBOR Rate Loan shall be in a minimum aggregate Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of $1,000,000 and in integral multiples of $500,000 in excess thereof (or the remaining amount of the Revolving Committed Amount, if less).

(iv) Foreign Funding Subsidiaries. Each Lender (a “Designating Lender”) shall have the right to designate a Subsidiary or Affiliate (a “Designated Funding Subsidiary”) to fund any Loan to any Foreign Borrower; provided that (i) the Designated Funding Subsidiary shall become a Lender under this Credit Agreement pursuant to documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (ii) the Designating Lender shall be responsible for funding its Revolving Commitment Percentage and/or Term Commitment Percentage of any Revolving Loan and/or Term Loan to such Foreign Borrower to the extent such Designated Funding Subsidiary fails to fund such Loan, (iii) the Credit Parties, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall continue to deal with the Designating Lender rather than the Designated Funding Subsidiary for all purposes of this Credit Agreement, including for purposes of any notification to the Lenders (other than Notices of Borrowing and Notices of Conversion/Extension, which shall be sent to any Designated Funding Subsidiary to the extent applicable), (iv) any consent given by such Designating Lender with respect to any amendment, waiver or other modification of any term of a Credit Document shall be deemed given on behalf of itself and the Designated Funding Subsidiary and (v) unless otherwise directed in writing by such Designating Lender, any payments with respect to a Loan funded by the Designated Funding Subsidiary shall be made to such Designated Funding Subsidiary.

      Section 2.2 Letter of Credit Subfacility.

(a) Issuance. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and of the LOC Documents, if any, and any other terms and conditions which the Issuing Lender may reasonably require, during the Commitment Period the Issuing Lender shall issue, and the Revolving Lenders shall participate in, Letters of Credit for the account of the Company from time to time upon request in a form acceptable to the Issuing Lender; provided, however, that (i) the aggregate Dollar Amount of LOC Obligations shall not at any time exceed TEN MILLION DOLLARS ($10,000,000) (the “LOC Committed Amount”), (ii) the sum of the aggregate principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of outstanding Revolving Loans plus outstanding Swingline Loans plus outstanding LOC Obligations shall not at any time exceed the Revolving Committed Amount then in effect, (iii) all Letters of Credit shall be denominated in Dollars or a Foreign Currency and (iv) Letters of Credit shall be issued for lawful corporate purposes and may be issued as standby letters of credit, including in connection with workers’ compensation and other insurance programs, and trade letters of credit. Except as otherwise expressly agreed upon by all the Revolving Lenders, no Letter of Credit shall have an original expiry date more than twelve (12) months from the date of issuance; provided, however, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and subject to the other terms and conditions to the issuance of Letters of Credit hereunder, the expiry dates of Letters of Credit may be extended annually or periodically from time to time on the request of the Company or by operation of the terms of the applicable Letter of Credit to a date not more than twelve (12) months from the date of extension; provided, further, that no Letter of Credit, as originally issued or as extended, shall have an expiry date extending beyond the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the Revolving Commitment Termination Date. Each Letter of Credit shall comply with the related LOC Documents. The issuance and expiry date of each Letter of Credit shall be a Business Day. Any Letters of Credit issued hereunder shall be in a minimum original face amount acceptable to the Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent. The Company’s reimbursement obligations in respect of each Existing Letter of Credit, and each Revolving Lender’s participation obligations in connection therewith, shall be governed by the terms of this Credit Agreement.

(b) Notice and Reports. The request for the issuance of a Letter of Credit shall be submitted to the Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent at least five (5) Business Days prior to the requested date of issuance. Each Issuing Lender will provide to the Administrative Agent each month and otherwise promptly upon the request of the Administrative Agent, for dissemination to the Revolving Lenders, a detailed report specifying the Letters of Credit which are then issued and outstanding and any activity with respect thereto which may have occurred since the date of any prior report, and including therein, among other things, the account party, the beneficiary, the face amount, expiry date as well as any payments or expirations which may have occurred. The Issuing Lender will further provide to the Administrative Agent promptly upon request copies of the Letters of Credit. The Issuing Lender will provide to the Administrative Agent promptly upon request a summary report of the nature and extent of LOC Obligations then outstanding.

(c) Participations. Each Revolving Lender, (i) on the Closing Date with respect to each Existing Letter of Credit and (ii) upon issuance of any other Letter of Credit, shall be deemed to have purchased without recourse a risk participation from the Issuing Lender in such Letter of Credit and the obligations arising thereunder and any collateral relating thereto, in each case in an amount equal to its Revolving Commitment Percentage of the obligations under such Letter of Credit and shall absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably assume, as primary obligor and not as surety, and be obligated to pay to the Issuing Lender therefor and discharge when due, its Revolving Commitment Percentage of the obligations arising under such Letter of Credit. Without limiting the scope and nature of each Revolving Lender’s participation in any Letter of Credit, to the extent that the Issuing Lender has not been reimbursed as required hereunder or under any LOC Document, each such Revolving Lender shall pay to the Issuing Lender, in Dollars, the Dollar Amount of its Revolving Commitment Percentage of such unreimbursed drawing pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of subsection (d) hereof. The obligation of each Revolving Lender to so reimburse the Issuing Lender shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by the occurrence of a Default, an Event of Default or any other occurrence or event. Any such reimbursement shall not relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Company to reimburse the Issuing Lender under any Letter of Credit, together with interest as hereinafter provided.

(d) Reimbursement. In the event of any drawing under any Letter of Credit, the Issuing Lender will promptly notify the Company and the Administrative Agent. The Company shall reimburse the Issuing Lender on the day of drawing under any Letter of Credit (with the proceeds of a Revolving Loan obtained hereunder or otherwise), in Dollars, in the Dollar Amount and in same day funds as provided herein or in the LOC Documents. If the Company shall fail to reimburse the Issuing Lender as provided herein, the unreimbursed amount of such drawing shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Percentage for Revolving Loans that are Alternate Base Rate Loans plus two percent (2%) for so long as such amount shall be unreimbursed. Unless the Company shall immediately notify the Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent of its intent to otherwise reimburse the Issuing Lender, the Company shall be deemed to have requested a LOC Mandatory Borrowing, in Dollars, in the Dollar Amount of the drawing as provided in subsection (e) hereof, the proceeds of which will be used to satisfy the Reimbursement Obligations. Subject to the terms of Section 2.19, the Company’s Reimbursement Obligations hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional under all circumstances irrespective of any rights of set off, counterclaim or defense to payment the Company may claim or have against the Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit drawn upon or any other Person, including without limitation any defense based on any failure of the Company to receive consideration or the legality, validity, regularity or unenforceability of the Letter of Credit. The Issuing Lender will promptly notify the other Revolving Lenders of the amount of any unreimbursed drawing and each Revolving Lender shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Lender in Dollars and in immediately available funds, the Dollar Amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of such unreimbursed drawing. Such payment shall be made on the day such notice is received by such Revolving Lender from the Issuing Lender if such notice is received at or before 2:00 p.m. EST, otherwise such payment shall be made at or before 12:00 Noon EST on the Business Day next succeeding the day such notice is received. If such Revolving Lender does not pay such amount to the Issuing Lender in full upon such request, such Revolving Lender shall, on demand, pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Lender interest on the unpaid amount during the period from the date of such drawing until such Revolving Lender pays such amount to the Issuing Lender in full at a rate per annum equal to, if paid within two (2) Business Days of the date of drawing, the Federal Funds Effective Rate and thereafter at a rate equal to the Alternate Base Rate. Each Revolving Lender’s obligation to make such payment to the Issuing Lender, and the right of the Issuing Lender to receive the same, shall be absolute and unconditional, shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever and without regard to the termination of this Credit Agreement or the Commitments hereunder, the existence of a Default or Event of Default or the acceleration of the Credit Party Obligations hereunder and shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever.

(e) Repayment with Revolving Loans. On any day on which the Company shall have requested, or been deemed to have requested, a Revolving Loan to reimburse a drawing under a Letter of Credit, the Administrative Agent shall give notice to the Revolving Lenders that a Revolving Loan has been requested or deemed requested in connection with a drawing under a Letter of Credit, in which case a Revolving Loan borrowing comprised entirely of Alternate Base Rate Loans in Dollars (each such borrowing, a “LOC Mandatory Borrowing”) shall be made (without giving effect to any termination of the Commitments pursuant to Section 7.2) pro rata based on each Revolving Lender’s respective Revolving Commitment Percentage (determined before giving effect to any termination of the Commitments pursuant to Section 7.2) and the proceeds thereof shall be paid directly to the Issuing Lender for application to the respective LOC Obligations. Each Revolving Lender hereby irrevocably agrees to make such Revolving Loans on the day such notice is received by the Revolving Lenders from the Administrative Agent if such notice is received at or before 2:00 P.M. EST, otherwise such payment shall be made at or before 12:00 Noon EST on the Business Day next succeeding the date such notice is received, in each case notwithstanding (i) the amount of LOC Mandatory Borrowing may not comply with the minimum amount for borrowings of Revolving Loans otherwise required hereunder, (ii) whether any conditions specified in Section 4.2 are then satisfied, (iii) whether a Default or an Event of Default then exists, (iv) the failure of any such request or deemed request for Revolving Loan to be made by the time otherwise required in Section 2.1(c), (v) the date of such LOC Mandatory Borrowing, or (vi) any reduction in the Revolving Committed Amount after any such Letter of Credit may have been drawn upon. In the event that any LOC Mandatory Borrowing cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required above (including, without limitation, as a result of the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event), then each such Revolving Lender hereby agrees that it shall forthwith fund (as of the date the LOC Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, but adjusted for any payments received from the Company on or after such date and prior to such purchase), in Dollars, the Dollar Amount of its Participation Interests in the outstanding LOC Obligations; provided, further, that in the event any Lender shall fail to fund its Participation Interest on the day the LOC Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, then the amount of such Revolving Lender’s unfunded Participation Interest therein shall bear interest payable by such Revolving Lender to the Issuing Lender upon demand, at the rate equal to, if paid within two (2) Business Days of such date, the Federal Funds Effective Rate, and thereafter at a rate equal to the Alternate Base Rate.

(f) Modification, Extension. The issuance of any supplement, modification, amendment, renewal, or extension to any Letter of Credit shall, for purposes hereof, be treated in all respects the same as the issuance of a new Letter of Credit hereunder.

(g) ISP98 and UCP. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the Issuing Lender and the Company when a Letter of Credit is issued, (i) the rules of “International Standby Practices 1998,” as most recently published by the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice at the time of issuance, shall apply to each standby Letter of Credit and (ii) the rules of The Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, as most recently published by the International Chamber of Commerce at the time of issuance, shall apply to each trade Letter of Credit.

(h) Conflict with LOC Documents. In the event of any conflict between this Credit Agreement and any LOC Document (including any letter of credit application and any LOC Documents relating to the Existing Letters of Credit), this Credit Agreement shall control.

(i) Designation of Subsidiaries as Account Parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Credit Agreement, including without limitation Section 2.2(a), a Letter of Credit issued hereunder may contain a statement to the effect that such Letter of Credit is issued for the account of a Subsidiary of the Company so long as such Letter of Credit and the Issuing Lender’s issuance thereof complies with all applicable Requirements of Law; provided that, notwithstanding such statement, the Company shall be the actual account party for all purposes of this Credit Agreement for such Letter of Credit and such statement shall not affect the Company’s Reimbursement Obligation hereunder with respect to such Letter of Credit.

(j) Existing Letters of Credit. On the Closing Date, the Existing Letters of Credit shall automatically, and without any action on the part of any Person, be deemed to be Letters of Credit issued hereunder, and from and after the Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof. In connection therewith, each Revolving Lender shall automatically, and without any action on the part of any Person, be deemed to have acquired from the Issuing Lender a participation in each such Existing Letter of Credit in accordance with Section 2.2(c).

      Section 2.3 Swingline Loan Subfacility.

(a) Swingline Commitment. During the Commitment Period, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swingline Lender, in its individual capacity, agrees to make certain revolving credit loans in Dollars to the Company (each a “Swingline Loan” and, collectively, the “Swingline Loans”) for the purposes hereinafter set forth; provided, however, (i) the aggregate principal amount of Swingline Loans outstanding at any time shall not exceed TEN MILLION DOLLARS ($10,000,000) (the “Swingline Committed Amount”) and (ii) the sum of the aggregate principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of outstanding Revolving Loans plus outstanding Swingline Loans plus outstanding LOC Obligations shall not exceed the Revolving Committed Amount. Swingline Loans hereunder may be repaid and reborrowed in accordance with the provisions hereof.

(b) Swingline Loan Borrowings.

(i) Notice of Borrowing and Disbursement. Upon receiving a Notice of Borrowing from the Company not later than 12:00 Noon EST on any Business Day requesting that a Swingline Loan be made, the Swingline Lender will make Swingline Loans in Dollars available to the Company on the same Business Day such request is received by the Administrative Agent. Swingline Loan borrowings hereunder shall be made in minimum amounts of $100,000 and in integral amounts of $100,000 in excess thereof.

(ii) Repayment of Swingline Loans. Each Swingline Loan borrowing shall be due and payable on the Revolving Commitment Termination Date. The Swingline Lender may, at any time, in its sole discretion, by written notice to the Company and the Administrative Agent, demand repayment of its Swingline Loans by way of a Revolving Loan borrowing, in which case the Company shall be deemed to have requested a Revolving Loan borrowing comprised entirely of Alternate Base Rate Loans in the amount of such Swingline Loans; provided, however, that, in the following circumstances, any such deemed request shall also be deemed to have been given one Business Day prior to each of (i) the Revolving Commitment Termination Date, (ii) the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event, (iii) upon acceleration of the Credit Party Obligations hereunder, whether on account of a Bankruptcy Event or any other Event of Default, and (iv) the exercise of remedies in accordance with the provisions of Section 7.2 hereof (each such Revolving Loan borrowing made on account of any such deemed request therefor as provided herein being hereinafter referred to as “Swingline Mandatory Borrowing”). Each Revolving Lender hereby irrevocably agrees to make such Revolving Loans promptly upon any such request or deemed request on account of each Mandatory Swingline Borrowing in the amount and in the manner specified in the preceding sentence on the date such notice is received by the Revolving Lenders from the Administrative Agent if such notice is received at or before 2:00 P.M. EST, otherwise such payment shall be made at or before 12:00 EST Noon on the Business Day next succeeding the date such notice is received notwithstanding (I) the amount of Swingline Mandatory Borrowing may not comply with the minimum amount for borrowings of Revolving Loans otherwise required hereunder, (II) whether any conditions specified in Section 4.2 are then satisfied, (III) whether a Default or an Event of Default then exists, (IV) failure of any such request or deemed request for Revolving Loans to be made by the time otherwise required in Section 2.1(c)(i), (V) the date of such Swingline Mandatory Borrowing, or (VI) any reduction in the Revolving Committed Amount or termination of the Revolving Commitments immediately prior to such Swingline Mandatory Borrowing or contemporaneously therewith. In the event that any Swingline Mandatory Borrowing cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required above (including, without limitation, as a result of the commencement of a proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code), then each Revolving Lender hereby agrees that it shall forthwith purchase (as of the date the Swingline Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, but adjusted for any payments received from the Company on or after such date and prior to such purchase) from the Swingline Lender such participations in the outstanding Swingline Loans as shall be necessary to cause each such Revolving Lender to share in such Swingline Loans ratably based upon its respective Revolving Commitment Percentage (determined before giving effect to any termination of the Commitments pursuant to Section 7.2); provided that (A) all interest payable on the Swingline Loans shall be for the account of the Swingline Lender until the date as of which the respective participation is purchased, and (B) at the time any purchase of participations pursuant to this sentence is actually made, the purchasing Revolving Lender shall be required to pay to the Swingline Lender interest on the principal amount of such participation purchased for each day from and including the day upon which the Swingline Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred to but excluding the date of payment for such participation, at the rate equal to, if paid within two (2) Business Days of the date of the Swingline Mandatory Borrowing, the Federal Funds Effective Rate, and thereafter at a rate equal to the Alternate Base Rate.

(c) Interest on Swingline Loans. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.9, Swingline Loans shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Percentage, if any, for Revolving Loans that are Alternate Base Rate Loans. Interest on Swingline Loans shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date.

(d) Swingline Note. The Swingline Loans shall be evidenced by a duly executed promissory note of the Company to the Swingline Lender in the original amount of the Swingline Committed Amount and substantially in the form of Schedule 2.3(d).

      Section 2.4 Increase in Facility.

(a) Request for Increase. Provided there exists no Default or Event of Default, the Company may from time to time, upon notice to the Administrative Agent (who shall promptly notify the Lenders), request (an “Increase Request”) (i) one or more incremental Term Loans and/or (ii) an increase in the Revolving Commitments (each such incremental Term Loan and/or increase under clause (ii), an “Increase” or an “Incremental Facility” and, collectively, the “Incremental Facilities”), in an aggregate amount for all such Incremental Facilities of up to but not exceeding $65,000.000; provided that (i) any such Increase Request shall be in a minimum amount of $10,000,000, and (ii) the Company may make a maximum of three such requests. If the Company delivers an Increase Request, each Lender shall have the option, but not any obligation, to participate in such Increase Request to the extent of its Revolving Commitment Percentage and/or Term Commitment Percentage thereof (as applicable) by delivering a written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Company within ten Business Days of such Lender’s receipt of the Increase Request (it being agreed and understood that such Lender shall be deemed to have elected not to participate in the Increase Request if it does not respond to the Increase Request within ten Business Days of its receipt thereof). Neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender shall have any obligation or other commitment to participate in any such increase in the Revolving Commitments or in an Incremental Facility. If one or more of the Lenders elect not to participate in the Increase Request, then the Lenders participating in the Increase Request may, at their option (but without any obligation), elect to participate in such remaining portion of the Increase Request (with such remaining portion to be allocated ratably among such participating Lenders based on their respective Revolving Commitment Percentages and/or Term Commitment Percentages thereof, as applicable, (as such percentages are adjusted to reflect the absence of the Lenders not participating in such Increase Request so that the total percentages shall equal 100% of such remaining amount being allocated) or as otherwise may be agreed by such participating Lenders). To achieve the full amount of an Increase Request, and subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender and the Issuing Lender, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, the Company may invite other banks, financial institutions and investment funds to join this Credit Agreement as Lenders hereunder, provided that such other banks, financial institutions and investment funds shall enter into such joinder agreements to give effect thereto as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request. The Administrative Agent, the Borrower and the Lenders participating in such Increase may amend this Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document solely as may be necessary to reflect the increase in the Revolving Commitment or the Term Facilities, and the Borrowers will execute replacement Notes for each participating Lender or new Notes for each new Lender who requests a Note, reflecting the increased amount of such Lender’s share of the Revolving Commitment or such Lender’s Term Loans, as applicable, or, in the case of a new Lender, the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment or Term Loans. The Borrowers agree to execute such amendments and supplements to the Security Documents as the Administrative Agent reasonably deems necessary in connection with an Increase Request.

(b) Effective Date and Allocations. If the Revolving Commitments are increased in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent and the Company shall determine the effective date (the “Increase Effective Date”) and the final allocation of such increase and any such allocations shall share ratably from the guarantees and security interests created by the applicable Security Documents. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Company and the Lenders of the final allocation of such increase and the Increase Effective Date.

(c) Conditions to Effectiveness of Increase. It shall be a condition precedent to any such Increase, that (a) no Default or Event of Default exists or would exist after giving effect to such Increase, (b) all financial covenants would be satisfied on a pro forma basis after giving effect to any such Increase, (c) the Administrative Agent consents to any new Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), (d) the Swingline Lender and the Issuing Lender consent to any new Lender participating in the Revolving Credit Facility, (e) [omitted], (f) such Incremental Facilities will share pari passu in the Collateral, (g) all fees and expenses owing in respect of such Increase to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders (other than any Defaulting Lender) shall have been paid, (h) if such Incremental Facility is a term loan facility, (i) the maturity date applicable to such Incremental Facility will not be earlier than the Term Loan Maturity Date, (ii) the weighted average life to maturity of such Incremental Facility will not be shorter than the weighted average life to maturity of the existing Term Facility and (iii) all other terms of such Incremental Facility, if not consistent with the terms of the existing Term Facility, will be as agreed between the Borrowers and the Lenders providing such Incremental Facility, (i) if such Incremental Facility is a revolving facility, such Incremental Facility will be documented solely as an increase to the Revolving Commitment, and (j) the Company shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of each Credit Party dated as of the Increase Effective Date (in sufficient copies for each Lender) signed by an authorized officer of such Credit Party (i) certifying and attaching the resolutions adopted by such Credit Party approving or consenting to such increase, (ii) in the case of the Company, certifying that, before and after giving effect to such increase, (A) the representations and warranties contained in Article 3 and the other Credit Documents are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Increase Effective Date, except to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date, (B) all financial covenants will be satisfied on a pro forma basis after giving effect to such Increase, and (C) no Default or Event of Default exists, and (iii) all fees and expenses of the Administrative Agent owing in respect of such Increase shall have been paid.

(d) Conflicting Provisions. This Section shall supersede any provisions in Section 9.01 to the contrary.

      Section 2.5 Fees.

(a) Commitment Fee. In consideration of the Revolving Commitments, the Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the ratable benefit of the Revolving Lenders a commitment fee (the “Commitment Fee”) in an amount equal to the Applicable Percentage per annum on the average daily unused Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of the Revolving Committed Amount. For purposes of computation of the Commitment Fee, LOC Obligations shall be considered usage of the Revolving Committed Amount but Swingline Loans shall not be considered usage of the Revolving Committed Amount. The Commitment Fee shall be payable in arrears quarterly on the first Business Day of each calendar quarter.

(b) Letter of Credit Fees. In consideration of the LOC Commitments, the Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Revolving Lenders, a fee (the “Letter of Credit Fee”) equal to the Applicable Percentage per annum then in effect for LIBOR Rate Loans on the average daily maximum amount available to be drawn under each Letter of Credit from the date of issuance to the date of expiration. The Letter of Credit Fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the first Business Day of each calendar quarter, and with respect to any Foreign Currency Letters of Credit, payable in Dollars based on the Spot Rate as of the prior quarter end.

(c) Issuing Lender Fees. In addition to the Letter of Credit Fees payable pursuant to subsection (b) hereof, the Company shall pay to the Issuing Lender for its own account without sharing by the other Lenders the reasonable and customary charges from time to time of the Issuing Lender with respect to the amendment, transfer, administration, cancellation and conversion of, and drawings under, such Letters of Credit (collectively, the “Issuing Lender Fees”). The Issuing Lender may charge, and retain for its own account without sharing by the other Lenders, an additional facing fee (the “Letter of Credit Facing Fee”) of one-tenth of one percent (0.10%) per annum on the average daily maximum amount available to be drawn under each such Letter of Credit issued by it. The Issuing Lender Fees and the Letter of Credit Facing Fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the first Business Day of each calendar quarter.

(d) Fee Letter.

(i) The Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent and the Arranger for its own account, in Dollars, fees in the amounts and at the times specified in the Fee Letter. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.

(ii) The Borrowers shall pay to the Lenders, in Dollars, such fees as are provided in the Fee Letter in the amounts and at the times so specified. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.

The obligations of the Borrowers to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders pursuant to this Section shall survive the resignation or removal of the Administrative Agent and the satisfaction or termination of this Agreement.

      Section 2.6 Commitment Reductions.

(a) Voluntary Reductions. The Company shall have the right to terminate or permanently reduce the unused portion of the Revolving Committed Amount at any time or from time to time upon not less than five Business Days’ prior notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall notify the Lenders thereof as soon as practicable) of each such termination or reduction, which notice shall specify the effective date thereof and the amount of any such reduction which shall be in a minimum Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof and shall be irrevocable and effective upon receipt by the Administrative Agent, provided that no such reduction or termination shall be permitted if after giving effect thereto, and to any prepayments of the Loans made on the effective date thereof, the sum of the aggregate principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of outstanding Revolving Loans plus outstanding Swingline Loans plus LOC Obligations would exceed the Revolving Committed Amount.

(b) Swingline Committed Amount. If the Revolving Committed Amount is reduced pursuant to Section 2.7(c) below the then Swingline Committed Amount, the Swingline Committed Amount shall automatically be reduced by an amount such that the Swingline Committed Amount equals the Revolving Committed Amount.

(c) Revolving Commitment Termination Date. The Revolving Commitments, the Swingline Commitment and the LOC Commitment shall automatically terminate on the Revolving Commitment Termination Date.

      Section 2.7 Repayment; Prepayments.

Term Loan Maturity Date
  The remaining unpaid principal balance of the Term
Loans, if any
 
       

For the avoidance of doubt, the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loans, and all interest and fees payable thereon, shall be paid in full on the Term Loan Maturity Date.

(b) Revolving Loans. The principal amount of all Revolving Loans, and all interest and fees payable thereon, shall be due and payable in full on the Revolving Commitment Termination Date, unless accelerated sooner pursuant to Section 7.2.

(c) Optional Prepayments. The Borrowers shall have the right to prepay Loans in whole or in part from time to time; provided, however, that each partial prepayment of a Revolving Loan or a Term Loan shall be in a minimum principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of $1,000,000 and integral multiples of $500,000 in excess thereof (or the remaining outstanding principal amount), and each partial prepayment of a Swingline Loan shall be in a minimum principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of $100,000 and integral multiples of $100,000 in excess thereof (or the remaining outstanding principal amount). The Company shall give three Business Days’ irrevocable notice in the case of LIBOR Rate Loans and same-day irrevocable notice on any Business Day in the case of Alternate Base Rate Loans, to the Administrative Agent (which shall notify the Lenders thereof as soon as practicable). All prepayments under this Section 2.7(c) shall be subject to Section 2.17, but otherwise without premium or penalty. Interest on the principal amount prepaid shall be payable on the next occurring Interest Payment Date that would have occurred had such loan not been prepaid or, at the request of the Administrative Agent, interest on the principal amount prepaid shall be payable on any date that a prepayment is made hereunder through the date of prepayment. Any such optional prepayments under this Section 2.7(c) shall be applied as directed by the Borrowers. Amounts prepaid on the Revolving Loans and the Swingline Loans may be reborrowed in accordance with the terms hereof, but amounts prepaid on the Term Loans may not be reborrowed.

(d) Hedging Obligations Unaffected. Any repayment or prepayment made pursuant to this Section 2.7 shall not affect the Borrower’s obligation to continue to make payments under any Secured Hedging Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding such repayment or prepayment, subject to the terms of such Secured Hedging Agreement.

(e) Mandatory Prepayments. If at any time, (i) other than as a result of fluctuations in Foreign Currency exchange rates, the aggregate principal Dollar Amount of the sum of the Lenders’ outstanding Revolving Loans, plus the Lenders’ Revolving Commitment Percentage of outstanding Swingline Loans, plus the Lenders’ Revolving Commitment Percentage of LOC Obligations (calculated, with respect to Revolving Loans and LOC Obligations denominated in Foreign Currencies, as of the most recent Revaluation Date with respect to each such Revolving Loan and Letter of Credit) exceeds the Revolving Committed Amount or (ii) to the extent solely as a result of fluctuations in Foreign Currency exchange rates, the aggregate principal Dollar Amount of the sum of the Lenders’ outstanding Revolving Loans, plus the Lenders’ Revolving Commitment Percentage of outstanding Swingline Loans, plus the Lenders’ Revolving Commitment Percentage of LOC Obligations (so calculated), as of the most recent Revaluation Date, exceeds one hundred five percent (105%) of all Revolving Lenders’ Commitments, then the Company shall, in each case, repay within one (1) Business Day, Revolving Loans, in an aggregate principal amount sufficient to cause the aggregate principal Dollar Amount of the sum of the Lenders’ outstanding Revolving Loans, plus the Lenders’ Revolving Commitment Percentage of outstanding Swingline Loans, plus the Lenders’ Revolving Commitment Percentage of LOC Obligations (so calculated) to be less than or equal to the Revolving Committed Amount.

(f) Repayment of Term Loans if CLS Acquisition Fails to Close. In the event that the CLS Acquisition does not close by January 9, 2015, or such later date as may be consented to by the Required Lenders, then the Borrowers shall promptly repay to the Lenders the Term Loans extended on the Closing Date, and in any event, within ten (10) Business Days of demand therefor by the Agent or the Required Lenders; provided, however, that no Foreign Borrower shall be obligated to repay any Term Loans extended to a US Credit Party.

      Section 2.8 Lending Offices.

LIBOR Rate Loans shall be made by each Lender at its LIBOR Lending Office and Alternate Base Rate Loans at its Domestic Lending Office.

      Section 2.9 Default Rate.

Upon the occurrence, and during the continuance, of an Event of Default, at the discretion of the Required Lenders, the principal of and, to the extent permitted by law, interest on the Loans and any other amounts owing hereunder or under the other Credit Documents shall bear interest, payable on demand, at a per annum rate 2% greater than the rate which would otherwise be applicable (or, in respect of interest, fees or for other amounts if no rate is applicable, then the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Percentage, if any, for Alternate Base Rate Revolving Loans plus 2%).

      Section 2.10 Conversion Options.

(a) The Company may, in the case of Loans, elect from time to time to convert Alternate Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars to LIBOR Rate Loans, by delivering a Notice of Conversion/Extension to the Administrative Agent at least three Business Days prior to the proposed date of conversion. In addition, the Company may elect from time to time to convert all or any portion of a LIBOR Rate Loan denominated in Dollars to an Alternate Base Rate Loan by delivering a Notice of Conversion/Extension to the Administrative Agent by 11:00 A.M. EST three Business Days prior to the proposed date of conversion. If the date upon which an Alternate Base Rate Loan is to be converted to a LIBOR Rate Loan is not a Business Day, then such conversion shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and during the period from such last day of an Interest Period to such succeeding Business Day such Loan shall bear interest as if it were an Alternate Base Rate Loan. If the Company shall convert LIBOR Rate Loans to Alternate Base Rate Loans on a date other than the last day of the applicable Interest Period, then the Company shall pay breakage costs associated with such conversion as provided in Section 2.17. If the date upon which a LIBOR Rate Loan is to be converted to an Alternate Base Rate Loan is not a Business Day, then such conversion shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and during the period from such last day of an Interest Period to such succeeding Business Day such Loan shall bear interest as if it were an Alternate Base Rate Loan. All or any part of outstanding Alternate Base Rate Loans may be converted as provided herein, provided that (i) no Loan may be converted into a LIBOR Rate Loan when any Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and (ii) partial conversions shall be in an aggregate principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof. All or any part of outstanding LIBOR Rate Loans may be converted as provided herein, provided that partial conversions shall be in an aggregate principal Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof.

(b) Any LIBOR Rate Loans may be continued as such upon the expiration of an Interest Period with respect thereto by compliance by the Company with the notice provisions contained in Section 2.10(a); provided, that no LIBOR Rate Loan may be continued as such when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, in which case such Loan shall be automatically converted to an Alternate Base Rate Loan denominated in Dollars at the end of the applicable Interest Period with respect thereto. If the Company shall fail to give timely notice of an election to continue a LIBOR Rate Loan, or the continuation of LIBOR Rate Loans is not permitted hereunder, such LIBOR Rate Loans shall be automatically converted to Alternate Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars at the end of the applicable Interest Period with respect thereto.

(c) Unless otherwise agreed to by the Required Lenders, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, all Foreign Currency Loans then outstanding shall be redenominated into Dollars (based on the Dollar Amount (determined as of the most recent Revaluation Date) of such Foreign Currency Loans on the date of redenomination) on the last day of the then current Interest Periods of such Foreign Currency Loans; provided that in each case the Company shall be liable for any currency exchange loss related to such payments and shall promptly pay to each Lender upon receipt of notice thereof by the Company from such Lender the amount of any such loss incurred by such Lender.

      Section 2.11 Computation of Interest and Fees; Usury.

(a) Interest payable hereunder with respect to Alternate Base Rate Loans based on the Prime Rate and Foreign Currency Loans shall be calculated on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days, as applicable) for the actual days elapsed. All other fees, interest and all other amounts payable hereunder shall be calculated on the basis of a 360 day year for the actual days elapsed. The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Company and the Lenders of each determination of a LIBOR Rate or Adjusted LIBO Rate, as applicable, on the Business Day of the determination thereof. Any change in the interest rate on a Loan resulting from a change in the Alternate Base Rate shall become effective as of the opening of business on the day on which such change in the Alternate Base Rate shall become effective. The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Company and the Lenders of the effective date and the amount of each such change.

(b) Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any provision of this Credit Agreement shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers and the Lenders in the absence of manifest error. The Administrative Agent shall, at the request of the Company, deliver to the Company a statement showing the computations used by the Administrative Agent in determining any interest rate.

(c) It is the intent of the Lenders and the Credit Parties to conform to and contract in strict compliance with applicable usury law from time to time in effect. All agreements between the Lenders and the Credit Parties are hereby limited by the provisions of this subsection which shall override and control all such agreements, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral. In no way, nor in any event or contingency (including but not limited to prepayment or acceleration of the maturity of any Credit Party Obligation), shall the interest taken, reserved, contracted for, charged, or received under this Credit Agreement, under the Notes or otherwise, exceed the maximum nonusurious amount permissible under applicable law. If, from any possible construction of any of the Credit Documents or any other document, interest would otherwise be payable in excess of the maximum nonusurious amount, any such construction shall be subject to the provisions of this paragraph and such interest shall be automatically reduced to the maximum nonusurious amount permitted under applicable law, without the necessity of execution of any amendment or new document. If any Lender shall ever receive anything of value which is characterized as interest on the Loans under applicable law and which would, apart from this provision, be in excess of the maximum nonusurious amount, an amount equal to the amount which would have been excessive interest shall, without penalty, be applied to the reduction of the principal amount owing on the Loans and not to the payment of interest, or refunded to the applicable Borrower or the other payor thereof if and to the extent such amount which would have been excessive exceeds such unpaid principal amount of the Loans. The right to demand payment of the Loans or any other Indebtedness evidenced by any of the Credit Documents does not include the right to receive any interest which has not otherwise accrued on the date of such demand, and the Lenders do not intend to charge or receive any unearned interest in the event of such demand. All interest paid or agreed to be paid to the Lenders with respect to the Loans shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term (including any renewal or extension) of the Loans so that the amount of interest on account of such Indebtedness does not exceed the maximum nonusurious amount permitted by applicable law.

      Section 2.12 Pro Rata Treatment and Payments.

(a) Allocation of Payments Prior to Exercise of Remedies. Each borrowing of Revolving Loans and any reduction of the Revolving Commitments shall be made pro rata according to the respective Revolving Commitment Percentages of the Revolving Lenders. Unless otherwise required by the terms of this Credit Agreement, each payment (other than prepayments pursuant to Section 2.7) under this Credit Agreement or any Note shall be applied to such Loans as the Company may elect, or if the Company shall make no such election, (i) first, to any fees then due and owing by the Company pursuant to Section 2.5, (ii) second, to interest then due and owing hereunder and under the Notes of the Borrowers, and, (iii) third, to the outstanding principal of the Term Loans and/or the Revolving Loans, as the Borrower shall elect and, if no election is made by the Borrower, to the Revolving Loans and thereafter to the Term Loans in inverse order of maturity. Each payment on account of any fees pursuant to Section 2.5 shall be made pro rata in accordance with the respective Revolving Commitment Percentages of the Revolving Lenders (except as to the Letter of Credit Facing Fee and the Issuing Lender Fees). Each payment (other than prepayments) by the Borrowers on account of principal of and interest on the Revolving Loans shall be made pro rata according to the respective amounts due and owing hereunder in the currency in which such amount is denominated and in such funds as are customary at the place and time of payment for the settlement of international payments in such currency. Without limiting the terms of the preceding sentence, accrued interest on any Loans denominated in a Foreign Currency shall be payable in the same Foreign Currency as such Loan. Each optional prepayment of the Loans shall be applied in accordance with Section 2.7(a). Payments made pursuant to Section 2.15 shall be applied in accordance with such Section. All payments (including prepayments) to be made by the Borrowers on account of principal, interest and fees shall be made without defense, set off or counterclaim (except as provided in Section 2.18(c)), shall be made to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders in immediately available funds at the Administrative Agent’s Office and (i) in the case of Loans or other amounts denominated in Dollars, shall be made in Dollars not later than 12:00 Noon EST on the date when due and (ii) in the case of Loans or other amounts denominated in a Foreign Currency, unless otherwise specified herein, shall be made in such Foreign Currency not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent on the date when due. Any payment received after the foregoing deadlines shall be deemed received on the next Business Day. The Administrative Agent shall distribute such payments to the Lenders entitled thereto promptly upon receipt in like funds as received. If any payment hereunder (other than payments on the LIBOR Rate Loans) becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, with respect to payments of principal, interest thereon shall be payable at the then applicable rate during such extension. If any payment on a LIBOR Rate Loan becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, such payment date shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless the result of such extension would be to extend such payment into another calendar month, in which event such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day. ) If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied in the manner set forth in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) of this Section 2.12(a) ratably among the parties entitled thereto in the order specified in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), and (x) paying the amounts due pursuant to clause (i) first until all such amounts have been paid in full, and if the amount received is insufficient to pay such amounts in full, ratably among the parties entitled thereto, (y) paying the amounts due pursuant to clause (ii) second until all such amounts have been paid in full, and if the amount received is insufficient to pay such amounts in full, ratably among the parties entitled thereto, and (z) finally in accordance with clause (iii) until all such amounts have been paid in full, and if the amount received is insufficient to pay such amounts in full, ratably among the parties entitled thereto. In no event shall the Administrative Agent be required in any such circumstance to pay to the Lenders an amount in excess of the partial amount received from the Borrowers.

(b) Allocation of Payments After Exercise of Remedies. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Credit Agreement to the contrary, after the exercise of remedies (other than the invocation of default interest pursuant to Section 2.9) by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders pursuant to Section 7.2 (or after the Commitments shall automatically terminate and the Loans (with accrued interest thereon) and all other amounts under the Credit Documents (including without limitation the maximum amount of all contingent liabilities under Letters of Credit) shall automatically become due and payable in accordance with the terms of such Section), all amounts collected or received by the Administrative Agent or any Lender on account of the Credit Party Obligations or any other amounts outstanding under any of the Credit Documents or in respect of the Collateral shall be paid over or delivered as follows (irrespective of whether the following costs, expenses, fees, interest, premiums, scheduled periodic payments or Credit Party Obligations are allowed, permitted or recognized as a claim in any proceeding resulting from the occurrence of a Bankruptcy Event):

FIRST, to the payment of all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) of the Administrative Agent in connection with enforcing the rights of the Lenders under the Credit Documents and any protective advances made by the Administrative Agent with respect to the Collateral under or pursuant to the terms of the Security Documents;

SECOND, to the payment of any fees owed to the Administrative Agent;

THIRD, to the payment of all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) of each of the Lenders in connection with enforcing its rights under the Credit Documents or otherwise with respect to the Credit Party Obligations owing to such Lender;

FOURTH, to the payment of all of the Credit Party Obligations consisting of accrued fees and interest, and including with respect to any Secured Hedging Agreement, any fees, premiums and scheduled periodic payments due under such Secured Hedging Agreement and any interest accrued thereon, provided, however, that amounts received from any Credit Party that is not a Qualified ECP Guarantor shall not be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligation;

FIFTH, to the payment of the outstanding principal amount of the Credit Party Obligations and the payment or cash collateralization of the outstanding LOC Obligations, and including with respect to any Secured Hedging Agreement, any breakage, termination or other payments due under such Secured Hedging Agreement and any interest accrued thereon;

SIXTH, to all other Credit Party Obligations and other obligations which shall have become due and payable under the Credit Documents or otherwise and not repaid pursuant to clauses ”FIRST” through “FIFTH” above; and

SEVENTH, to the payment of the surplus, if any, to whoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such surplus.

In carrying out the foregoing, (i) amounts received shall be applied in the numerical order provided until exhausted prior to application to the next succeeding category; (ii) each of the Lenders shall receive an amount equal to its pro rata share (based on the proportion that the then outstanding Loans and LOC Obligations held by such Lender bears to the aggregate then outstanding Loans and LOC Obligations) of amounts available to be applied pursuant to clauses “THIRD”, “FOURTH”, “FIFTH” and “SIXTH” above; and (iii) to the extent that any amounts available for distribution pursuant to clause ”FIFTH” above are attributable to the issued but undrawn amount of outstanding Letters of Credit, such amounts shall be held by the Administrative Agent in a cash collateral account and applied (A) first, to reimburse the Issuing Lender from time to time for any drawings under such Letters of Credit and (B) then, following the expiration of all Letters of Credit, to all other obligations of the types described in clauses ”FIFTH” and “SIXTH” above in the manner provided in this Section 2.12. Notwithstanding the foregoing terms of this Section 2.12, neither the Foreign Borrowers nor any other Foreign Credit Party shall be required to repay or prepay, or to guarantee, nor shall any amount paid by the Foreign Borrowers or any other Foreign Credit Party be applied to, the Credit Party Obligations of the Company and the US Guarantors.

      Section 2.13 Non Receipt of Funds by the Administrative Agent.

(a) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by a Lender prior to the date a Loan is to be made by such Lender (which notice shall be effective upon receipt) that such Lender does not intend to make the proceeds of such Loan available to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such proceeds available to the Administrative Agent on such date, and the Administrative Agent may in reliance upon such assumption (but shall not be required to) make available to the Borrowers a corresponding amount. If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the Borrowers severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to a Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, and (ii) in the case of a payment to be made by the Borrowers, the interest rate applicable to Alternate Base Rate Loans. If the Borrowers and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Borrowers the amount of such interest paid by the Borrowers for such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Extension of Credit to the Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such borrowing. Any payment by the Borrowers shall be without prejudice to any claim the Borrowers may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.

(b) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by the Company, prior to the date on which any payment is due from a Borrower hereunder (which notice shall be effective upon receipt) that the applicable Borrower does not intend to make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the applicable Borrower has made such payment when due, and the Administrative Agent may in reliance upon such assumption (but shall not be required to) make available to each Lender and Issuing Lender on such payment date an amount equal to the portion of such assumed payment to which such Lender is entitled hereunder. In such event, if the applicable Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders or the Issuing Lenders, 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 Lender, 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 Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.

(c) A certificate of the Administrative Agent submitted to the Company or any Lender with respect to any amount owing under this Section 2.13 shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

      Section 2.14 Inability to Determine Interest Rate.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Credit Agreement, if (a) the Administrative Agent shall reasonably determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that, by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant market, deposits in the relevant amount in the relevant currency and for the relevant Interest Period are not available in the relevant market to any Lender or reasonable and adequate means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for such Interest Period, or (b) the Required Lenders shall reasonably determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the LIBOR Rate or Adjusted LIBO Rate, as applicable, does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding LIBOR Rate Loans that the Company has requested be outstanding as a LIBOR Tranche during such Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give telephone notice of such determination, confirmed in writing, to the Company, and the Lenders at least two Business Days prior to the first day of such Interest Period. If such notice is given (i) any affected Foreign Currency Loans requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period shall be made, at the sole option of the applicable Borrower, in Dollars as Alternate Base Rate Loans or such request shall be cancelled, (ii) any affected LIBOR Rate Loans requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period shall be made in Dollars as Alternate Base Rate Loans and (iii) any affected Loans that were to have been converted on the first day of such Interest Period to or continued as LIBOR Rate Loans shall be converted to or continued in Dollars as Alternate Base Rate Loans. Until any such notice has been withdrawn by the Administrative Agent, no further Loans shall be made as, continued as, or converted into, LIBOR Rate Loans for the Interest Periods so affected.

      Section 2.15 Illegality.

(a) Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if (i) the adoption of, or any change in, any Requirement of Law or in the interpretation or application thereof by the relevant Governmental Authority after the date of this Credit Agreement shall make it unlawful for any Lender or its LIBOR Lending Office to make or maintain LIBOR Rate Loans denominated in Dollars or in any Foreign Currency as contemplated by this Credit Agreement, or (ii) there shall have occurred any change after the date of this Credit Agreement in national or international financial, political or economic conditions (including the imposition of or any change in exchange controls) or currency exchange rates which would make it unlawful or impossible for any Lender to make Loans denominated in any Foreign Currency to the Borrowers, as contemplated by this Credit Agreement (any such affected LIBOR Rate Loans or Foreign Currency Loans, the “Affected Loans”), then such Lender shall be an “Affected Lender” and by written notice to the Company and to the Administrative Agent:

(i) may declare that Affected Loans will not thereafter (for the duration of such unlawfulness or impossibility) be made by such Lender hereunder, whereupon any request for an Affected Loan shall, as to such Lender only (A) if such Affected Loan is not a Foreign Currency Loan, be deemed a request for an Alternate Base Rate Loan (unless it should also be illegal for the Affected Lender to provide an Alternate Base Rate Loan, in which case such Loan shall bear interest at a commensurate rate to be agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the Affected Lender, and so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Company), unless such declaration by the Affected Lender shall be subsequently withdrawn and (B) if such Affected Loan is a Foreign Currency Loan, be made as an Alternate Base Rate denominated in Dollars, unless such declaration by the Affected Lender shall be subsequently withdrawn; and

(ii) may require that all outstanding Affected Loans, as the case may be, made by it be (A) if such Affected Loans are not Foreign Currency Loans, converted to Alternate Base Rate Loans, in which event all such Affected Loans shall be automatically converted to Alternate Base Rate Loans as of the effective date of such notice as provided in subsection (b) below or (B) if such Affected Loans are Foreign Currency Loans, converted to Alternate Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars, in which event all such Affected Loans shall be converted to Alternate Base Rate Loans denominated in Dollars as of the effective date of such notice as provided in subsection (b) below; provided that the applicable Borrower shall be liable for any currency exchange loss related to such conversion.

In the event any Lender shall exercise its rights under (i) or (ii) above with respect to any Affected Loans which are not Foreign Currency Loans, all payments and prepayments of principal which would otherwise have been applied to repay the Affected Loans of such Lender shall instead be applied to repay the Alternate Base Rate Loans made by such Lender in lieu of, or resulting from the conversion of, such Affected Loans.

(b) For purposes of this Section 2.15, a notice to the Company by any Lender shall be effective as to each such Affected Loan, if lawful, on the last day of the Interest Period currently applicable to such Affected Loan; in all other cases such notice shall be effective on the date of receipt by the Company.

      Section 2.16 Requirements of Law.

(a) If any Change in Law shall:

(i) subject such Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) whatsoever with respect to any Letter of Credit or any application relating thereto, any Loan made by it, any Commitment or any other obligation, or any of its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, in each case, that is attributable to any of the foregoing,

(ii) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement reflected in the LIBOR Rate or Adjusted LIBO Rate) or any Issuing Lender; or

(iii) impose on such Recipient or on the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Credit Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Recipient of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan, or to increase the cost to such Lender, such Issuing Lender or such other Recipient of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender, Issuing Lender or other Recipient hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, upon request of such Lender, Issuing Lender or other Recipient, the Borrower will pay to such Lender, Issuing Lender or other Recipient, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender, Issuing Lender or other Recipient, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

(b) If any Lender or Issuing Lender determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or Issuing Lender or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by any Issuing Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or Issuing Lender or such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time the Borrowers will pay to such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or Issuing Lender or such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(c) Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of a Lender or Issuing Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or Issuing Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section and delivered to the Company, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrowers shall pay such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.

(d) Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or Issuing Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender or Issuing Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than six months prior to the date that such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, notifies the Company of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions, and of such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the six-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).

(e) The agreements in this Section 2.16 shall survive the termination of this Credit Agreement and payment of the Credit Party Obligations.

      Section 2.17 Indemnity.

Each of the Borrowers hereby agree to indemnify each Lender and to hold such Lender harmless from any funding loss or expense which such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) default by such Borrower in payment of the principal amount of or interest on any Loan by such Lender in accordance with the terms hereof, (b) default by such Borrower in accepting a borrowing after such Borrower has given a notice in accordance with the terms hereof, (c) default by such Borrower in making any prepayment after such Borrower has given a notice in accordance with the terms hereof, and/or (d) the making by such Borrower of a prepayment of a Loan, or the conversion thereof, on a day which is not the last day of the Interest Period with respect thereto, in each case including, but not limited to, any such loss or expense arising from interest or fees payable by such Lender to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to maintain its Loans hereunder. A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section submitted by any Lender, through the Administrative Agent, to the Company (which certificate must be delivered to the Administrative Agent within thirty days following such default, prepayment or conversion) shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. The agreements in this Section shall survive termination of this Credit Agreement and payment of the Credit Party Obligations; provided, that any claim by a Lender for indemnification under this Section 2.17 shall be made no later than 90 days after such Lender becomes aware of such loss or expense.

      Section 2.18 Taxes.

(a) All payments made by the Credit Parties hereunder or under any Note shall be, except as provided herein, made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, any Taxes. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount of any such Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Credit Party shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding for Indemnified Taxes been made. The applicable Credit Party will furnish to the Administrative Agent as soon as practicable after the date of payment of any Taxes by an applicable Credit Party to a Governmental Authority certified copies (to the extent reasonably available and required by law) of tax receipts evidencing such payment by such Credit Party. The applicable Credit Parties agree to jointly and severally indemnify and hold harmless each Lender, and reimburse such Lender upon its written request, for the amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) so levied or imposed and paid by such Lender and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority; provided, however, that in no event shall a Foreign Borrower or Foreign Guarantor be jointly and severally liable for the obligations hereunder of any US Credit Party. A reasonably detailed certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the applicable Credit Party or Credit Parties by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. If the Administrative Agent is, in respect of any payment in respect of the Loans, required to withhold or deduct any amount for or on account of any Taxes, the Lender shall give written notice of that fact to the Administrative Agent as soon as the Lender becomes aware of the requirement to make the withholding or deduction and shall give to the Administrative Agent such information as the Administrative Agent shall require to enable it to assess and comply with the requirement. The Borrowers shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

(b) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Credit Document shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.18(b)(i), (iii) and (iv), shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:

(i) Each Foreign Lender agrees to deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the Closing Date, or in the case of a Lender that is an assignee or transferee of an interest under this Credit Agreement pursuant to Section 9.6(d) (unless the respective Lender was already a Lender hereunder immediately prior to such assignment or transfer), on the date of such assignment or transfer to such Lender two accurate and complete original signed copies of (a) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable (if such Lender is claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party) establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax, (b) IRS Form W-8ECI, (c) if such Lender is claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, and a certificate to the effect that such Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the Company within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code or (d) IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable;

(ii) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(iii) Each Lender that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) agrees to deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the Closing Date, or in the case of a Lender that is an assignee or transferee of an interest under this Credit Agreement pursuant to Section 9.6(d) (unless the respective Lender was already a Lender hereunder immediately prior to such assignment or transfer), on the date of such assignment or transfer to such Lender, two accurate and complete original signed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (or successor forms) certifying such Lender is exempt from United States backup withholding tax.

(iv) If a payment made to a Lender under any Credit Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Company and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Without limiting the foregoing, each Lender agrees to provide to the Administrative Agent, and consents to the collection and processing by the Administrative Agent of, any authorisations, waivers, forms, documentation and other information, relating to its status (or the status of its direct or indirect owners or holders of any Notes) or otherwise required to be reported, under FATCA (the “FATCA Information”).  Each Lender further consents to the disclosure, transfer and reporting of such FATCA Information to any relevant government or taxing authority, any Affiliate the Administrative Agent, any sub-contractors, agents, service providers or associates of the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, and any person making payments to the Administrative Agent or an Affiliate of the Administrative Agent, including transfers to jurisdictions which do not have strict data protection or similar laws, to the extent that the Administrative Agent reasonably determines that such disclosure, transfer or reporting is necessary or warranted to facilitate compliance with FATCA.  Each Lender agrees to inform the Administrative Agent promptly, and in any event, within 30 days in writing if there are any changes to the FATCA Information supplied to the Administrative Agent from time to time. Each Lender warrants that each person whose FATCA Information it provides (or has provided) to the Administrative Agent has been notified of and agreed to, and has been given such other information as may be necessary to permit, the collection, processing, disclosure, transfer and reporting of their information as set out in this paragraph. In addition, each Lender hereby covenants with the Administrative Agent that following the receipt of a request from the Administrative Agent for a determination as to the source and character for U.S. federal income tax purposes of any payment to be made by it pursuant to this Agreement, any Note, or under any of the Security Documents to enable the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not it is obliged, in respect of any payments to be made by it hereunder or under any Security Document or in respect of any Note, to make any withholding under FATCA, to use reasonable efforts to make such determination and to notify the Administrative Agent the outcome of such determination. Solely for purposes of this clause (iv), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

(v) For purposes of determining withholding Taxes imposed under FATCA, from and after the effective date of this Agreement, the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent shall treat (and the Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to treat) the Credit Agreement as not qualifying as a “grandfathered obligation” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1471-2(b)(2)(i).

(vi) The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to deduct withholding as required under FATCA and shall have no obligation to gross-up any payment hereunder or to pay any additional amount as a result of such FATCA withholding.

In addition, each Lender agrees that it will deliver updated versions of the foregoing, as applicable, whenever the previous certification expires or has become obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect.

(c) If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.16, or requires the Borrowers to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to this Section 2.18, then such a Lender shall, at the request of the Borrowers, 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 judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.16 or this 2.18, 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 Borrowers hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

(d) If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.18 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.18), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments or additional amounts made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (d) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (d), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (d) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(e) Each party’s obligations under this Section 2.18 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Credit Document.

      Section 2.19 Indemnification; Nature of Issuing Lender’s Duties.

(a) In addition to its other obligations under Section 2.2, the applicable Borrower hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, pay and save the Issuing Lender harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, charges and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that the Issuing Lender may incur or be subject to as a consequence, direct or indirect, of (i) the issuance of any Letter of Credit on behalf such Borrower or one of its Subsidiaries or (ii) the failure of the Issuing Lender to honor a drawing under a Letter of Credit issued on behalf of such Borrower or one of its Subsidiaries as a result of any act or omission, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto government or Governmental Authority (all such acts or omissions, herein called “Government Acts”).

(b) As between the Credit Parties and the Issuing Lender, the Credit Parties shall assume all risks of the acts, omissions or misuse of any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof. The Issuing Lender shall not be responsible: (i) for the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for and issuance of any Letter of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged; (ii) for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, that may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) for payment to the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit on a drawing by a beneficiary that substantially (but not strictly) complies with conditions required in order to draw upon a Letter of Credit; (iv) for errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) for errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) for any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under a Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; and (vii) for any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Issuing Lender, including, without limitation, any Government Acts. None of the above shall affect, impair, or prevent the vesting of the Issuing Lender’s rights or powers hereunder.

(c) In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions hereinabove set forth, any action taken or omitted by the Issuing Lender, under or in connection with any Letter of Credit or the related certificates, if taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct, shall not put such Issuing Lender under any resulting liability to the Credit Parties. It is the intention of the parties that this Credit Agreement shall be construed and applied to protect and indemnify the Issuing Lender against any and all risks involved in the issuance of the Letters of Credit, all of which risks are hereby assumed by the Credit Parties, including, without limitation, any and all risks of the acts or omissions, whether rightful or wrongful, of any Government Authority. The Issuing Lender shall not, in any way, be liable for any failure by the Issuing Lender or anyone else to pay any drawing under any Letter of Credit as a result of any Government Acts or any other cause beyond the control of the Issuing Lender.

(d) Except as provided in subsection (e) below, nothing in this Section 2.19 is intended to limit the Reimbursement Obligation of the Company contained in Section 2.2(d) hereof. The obligations of the Credit Parties under this Section 2.19 shall survive the termination of this Credit Agreement. No act or omissions of any current or prior beneficiary of a Letter of Credit shall in any way affect or impair the rights of the Issuing Lender to enforce any right, power or benefit under this Credit Agreement.

(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.19 the Credit Parties shall have no obligation to indemnify the Issuing Lender in respect of any liability incurred by the Issuing Lender arising out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Lender (including action not taken by the Issuing Lender), as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.

      Section 2.20 Replacement of Lenders.

If any Lender has given notice under Section 2.15 or requests compensation under Section 2.16, or if the Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.18 and, in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different lending office in accordance with Section 2.18(c), or if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender or a Non-Consenting Lender, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in, and consents required by, Section 9.6), all of its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 2.16 or Section 2.18) and obligations under this Agreement and the related Credit Documents to an assignee eligible to become an assignee pursuant to Section 9.6 that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that:

(i) the Borrowers shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the assignment fee (if any) specified in Section 9.06;

(ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and participations in L/C Disbursements, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Credit Documents (including any amounts under Section 2.17(d)) from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrowers (in the case of all other amounts);

(iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.16 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.18, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments thereafter;

(iv) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law; and

(v) in the case of any assignment resulting from a Lender becoming a Non-Consenting Lender, the applicable assignee shall have consented to the applicable amendment, waiver or consent.

A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrowers to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

      Section 2.21 Obligations of Borrowers.

Notwithstanding anything in this Credit Agreement or in the other Credit Documents to the contrary (including, without limitation, Section 2.7, Section 2.12, Article X and, except as set forth below in this paragraph, Article XI), the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that (a) each of the Borrowers, in its capacity as a Borrower hereunder, is not jointly and severally liable for the Credit Party Obligations of the other Borrower; provided that it is acknowledged and agreed that (i) the Company has guaranteed the Credit Party Obligations of the Foreign Borrowers pursuant to Article XI and that the Foreign Borrowers have not guaranteed the Credit Party Obligations of the Company and (ii) to the extent provided in, and subject to the terms and conditions of, Section 11.10, each Foreign Borrower is jointly and severally liable for the Credit Party Obligations of each other Foreign Borrower, and (b) neither the Foreign Borrowers nor any other Foreign Credit Party shall be required to repay or prepay, or to guarantee, nor shall any amount paid by any Foreign Borrower or any other Foreign Credit Party be applied to, any Credit Party Obligations of the Company and the US Guarantors.

      Section 2.22 Defaulting Lender.

(a) Defaulting Lender Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Credit Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law:

(i) Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Credit Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Required Lenders.

(ii) Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VII or otherwise) or received by the Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 9.7 shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: FIRST, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; SECOND, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to any Issuing Lender or Swingline Lender hereunder; THIRD, to cash collateralize the Issuing Lenders’ Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender; FOURTH, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Credit Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; FIFTH, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Credit Agreement and (y) cash collateralize the Issuing Lenders’ future Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Credit Agreement; SIXTH, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders or Swingline Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender, the Issuing Lender or Swingline Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Credit Agreement; SEVENTH, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Credit Agreement; and EIGHTH, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.2 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of such Defaulting Lender, until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in LOC Obligations and Swingline Loans are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments under the applicable facility without giving effect to Section 2.22(a)(iv). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this Section 2.22(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.

(iii) Certain Fees.

(A) No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any Commitment Fee for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender).

(B) Each Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive a Letter of Credit Fee for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to the extent allocable to its Commitment Percentage of the stated amount of Letters of Credit for which it has provided cash collateral.

(C) With respect to any Commitment Fee or Letter of Credit Fee not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (A) or (B) above, the Borrower shall (x) pay to each Non-Defaulting Lender that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participation in LOC Obligations or Swingline Loans that has been reallocated to such Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iv) below, (y) pay to each Issuing Lender and Swingline Lender, as applicable, the amount of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to such Issuing Lender’s or Swingline Lender’s Fronting Exposure to such Defaulting Lender, and (z) not be required to pay the remaining amount of any such fee.

(iv) Reallocation of Participations to Reduce Fronting Exposure. All or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s participation in LOC Obligations and Swingline Loans shall be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment) but only to the extent that (x) the conditions set forth in Section 4.2 are satisfied at the time of such reallocation (and, unless the Company shall have otherwise notified the Administrative Agent at such time, the Company shall be deemed to have represented and warranted that such conditions is satisfied at such time) provided that, on any date thereafter during such period, to the extent that such conditions set forth in Section 4.2 are satisfied, such reallocation shall occur at such later date, and (y) such reallocation does not cause the sum of the aggregate principal Dollar Amount of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s outstanding Revolving Loans plus such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of outstanding Swingline Loans plus such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of LOC Obligations to exceed such Non-Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Commitment. No reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a Non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.

(v) Cash Collateral, Repayment of Swingline Loans. If the reallocation described in clause (iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Company shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under law, within one Business Day following the written request of the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) (x) first, prepay Swingline Loans in an amount equal to the Swingline Lenders’ Fronting Exposure and (y) second, cash collateralize the Issuing Lender’s Fronting Exposure.

(vi) Grant of Security Interest. The Company, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Issuing Lenders, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash collateral as security for the Defaulting Lenders’ obligation to fund participations in respect of LOC Obligations, to be applied pursuant to clause (vii) below. If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that such cash collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lenders as herein provided, or that the total amount of such cash collateral is less than the amount under clause (iv) above, the Company will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional cash collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (after giving effect to any cash collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).

(vii) Application. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, cash collateral provided under this Section in respect of Letters of Credit shall be applied to the satisfaction of the Defaulting Lender’s obligation to fund participations in respect of LOC Obligations (including, as to cash collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) for which the cash collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein.

(viii) Termination of Requirement. Cash collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce any Issuing Lender’s Fronting Exposure shall no longer be required to be held as cash collateral pursuant to this Section following (i) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender), or (ii) the determination by the Administrative Agent and each Issuing Lender that there exists excess cash collateral; provided that, subject to this Section 2.22, the Person providing cash collateral and each Issuing Lender may agree that cash collateral shall be held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations, and provided further that to the extent that such cash collateral was provided by the Company, such cash collateral shall remain subject to the security interest granted pursuant to the Credit Documents.

(b) Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender and each Issuing Lender agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, 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 (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans to be held pro rata by the Lenders in accordance with the Revolving Commitments (without giving effect to Section 2.22(a)(iv)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that 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 to Non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.

(c) New Swingline Loans/Letters of Credit. So long as any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, (i) the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loans unless it is satisfied that it will have no Fronting Exposure after giving effect to such Swingline Loan and (ii) no Issuing Lender shall be required to issue, extend, renew or increase any Letter of Credit unless it is satisfied that it will have no Fronting Exposure after giving effect thereto.

Each of the Credit Parties has full power and authority and the legal right to make, deliver and perform the Credit Documents to which it is party and has taken all necessary limited liability company or corporate action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance by it of the Credit Documents to which it is party. No consent or authorization of, filing with, notice to or other act by or in respect of, any Governmental Authority or any other Person is required in connection with the borrowings hereunder or with the execution, delivery or performance of any Credit Document by the Credit Parties (other than those that have been obtained) or with the validity or enforceability of any Credit Document against the Credit Parties (except such filings as are necessary in connection with the perfection of the Liens created by such Credit Documents). Each Credit Document to which it is a party has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of each Credit Party. Each Credit Document to which it is a party constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of each Credit Party, enforceable against such Credit Party in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law).

      Section 3.5 No Legal Bar; No Default.

No Credit Party is in default under or with respect to any of its Contractual Obligations to the extent such default could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. No Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.

      Section 3.6 No Material Litigation.

No litigation, investigation, claim, criminal prosecution, civil investigative demand, imposition of criminal or civil fines and penalties, or any other proceeding of or before any arbitrator or Governmental Authority is pending or, to the best knowledge of the Credit Parties, threatened by or against any Credit Party or any of its Subsidiaries or against any of its or their respective properties or revenues (a) with respect to the Credit Documents or any Loan or any of the transactions contemplated hereby, or (b) which would, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

      Section 3.8 Margin Regulations.

No part of the proceeds of any Extension of Credit hereunder will be used directly or indirectly for any purpose that violates, or that would be inconsistent with, the provisions of Regulation T, U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as now and from time to time hereafter in effect. The Credit Parties and their Subsidiaries are not engaged, principally or as one of their important activities, in the business of extending credit for the purpose of “purchasing” or “carrying” “margin stock” within the respective meanings of each of such terms under Regulation U. The Credit Parties and their Subsidiaries shall not engage in any activities, including the purchase of Margin Stock, which would result in a violation of Regulation U. If the Company owns Margin Stock at any time, it will nevertheless comply with this Section 3.8.

The present value of all accrued benefits under each Single Employer Plan (based on those assumptions used to fund such Plans) did not, as of the last annual valuation date prior to the date on which this representation is made or deemed made, exceed the value of the assets of such Plan allocable to such accrued benefits.

THE AGENT

      Section 8.1 Appointment.

Each Lender and Issuing Lender hereby irrevocably designates and appoints HSBC to act on its behalf as the Administrative Agent of such Lender under this Credit Agreement, and each such Lender irrevocably authorizes HSBC, as the Administrative Agent for such Lender, to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Credit Agreement and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of this Credit Agreement, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders, and neither the Borrowers nor any other Credit Party shall have rights as a third-party beneficiary of any of such provisions. It is understood and agreed that the use of the term “agent” herein or in any other Credit Documents (or any other similar term) with reference to the Administrative Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties. In addition, in acting hereunder and in connection with the Notes, the Administrative Agent shall act solely as an agent of the issuer and will not thereby assume any obligations towards or relationship of agency or trust for or with any of the holders of the Notes or any other third party.

Any entity into which the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity shall be a party, or any corporation to which substantially all of the corporate trust business of the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity may be transferred, shall be the Administrative Agent under this Agreement without further action by any party hereto.

      Section 8.2 Delegation of Duties.

The Administrative Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Credit Document 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 by or through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to 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 loan facilities as well as activities as Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and nonappealable judgment that the Administrative Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents.

In relation to the Foreign Pledge Agreements governed by Swiss law, each present and future Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent:

(a) to (i) accept and execute in its name and for its account as its direct representative (direkter Stellvertreter) any Swiss law pledge for the benefit of such Lender and (ii) hold, administer and, if necessary, enforce any such security on behalf of each relevant Lender which has the benefit of such security;

(b) to agree as its direct representative (direkter Stellvertreter) to amendments and alterations to any Foreign Pledge Agreement governed by Swiss law;

(c) to effect as its direct representative (direkter Stellvertreter) any release of a security created or evidenced or expressed to be created or evidenced under a Foreign Pledge Agreement governed by Swiss law in accordance with this Agreement; and

(d) to exercise as its direct representative (direkter Stellvertreter) such other rights granted to the Administrative Agent hereunder or under the relevant Foreign Pledge Agreement governed by Swiss law.

The Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender and a holder of Notes as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires, include the Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder in its individual capacity. Such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, own securities of, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for, and such Person, its Affiliates, and its officers, directors and employees may generally engage in any kind of business with, the Borrower or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not the Administrative Agent hereunder or affiliated with the Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders.

      Section 8.4 Exculpatory Provisions.

(a) Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys in fact, Subsidiaries or affiliates shall be (i) liable to any Lender for any action lawfully taken or omitted to be taken by it or such Person under or in connection with this Credit Agreement (except for its or such Person’s own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and nonappealable judgment) or (ii) responsible in any manner to any of the Lenders for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by any Credit Party or any officer thereof contained in this Credit Agreement or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by the Administrative Agent under or in connection with, this Credit Agreement or for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of any of the Credit Documents or for any failure of any Credit Party to perform its obligations hereunder or thereunder. The Administrative Agent shall not be under any obligation to any Lender to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance by any Credit Party of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Credit Agreement, or to inspect the properties, books or records of any Credit Party.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent:

(i) shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing;

(ii) shall not (x) have any duty to expend or risk any of its own funds or otherwise incur any liability, financial or otherwise, in the performance of any of its duties hereunder or in the exercise of any of its rights or powers or (y) have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers except (with respect to this clause (y)) discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Credit Documents that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Credit Documents); provided that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose the Administrative Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Credit Document or applicable law or any regulation or fiscal requirement, court order, or the rules, operating procedures or market practice of any relevant stock exchange or any other applicable market or clearing system, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Debtor Relief Law or that may effect a forfeiture, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender in violation of any Debtor Relief Law and provided further that if any applicable law or any regulation or fiscal requirement, court order, or the rules, operating procedures or market practice of any relevant stock exchange or any other applicable market or clearing system shall require the Administrative Agent to take any action, the Administrative Agent shall be permitted to take such action; and

(iii) shall not, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Credit Documents, 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 Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.

(b) The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it (i) with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in Sections 9.1 and 7.2) or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment. The Administrative Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default or Event of Default unless and until notice describing such Default or Event of Default is given to the Administrative Agent in writing by a Credit Party, a Lender or an Issuing Lender.

(c) 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 this Agreement or any other Credit 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 or conditions set forth herein or therein or the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere herein, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent.

      Section 8.5 Reliance by Administrative Agent.

(a) The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any instruction, notice, request, order, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, resolution, direction, affidavit, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting, telex cable or other paper, document or electronic distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person. The Administrative Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan, or the issuance, extension, renewal or increase of a Letter of Credit, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender or an Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender or Issuing Lender unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender or Issuing Lender prior to the making of such Loan or the issuance of such Letter of Credit. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Borrowers), independent 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 any such counsel, accountants or experts.

(b) For purposes of determining compliance with the conditions specified in Section 4.1, each Lender that has signed this Credit Agreement shall be deemed to have consented to, approved or accepted or to be satisfied with, each document or other matter required thereunder to be consented to or approved by or acceptable or satisfactory to a Lender.

      Section 8.6 Non Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders.

Each Lender and Issuing Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties 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 Lender and Issuing Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.

      Section 8.7 Indemnification.

The Lenders agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and their Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, representatives, agents and employees (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrowers and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers to do so), ratably according to their respective Revolving Commitment Percentages in effect on the date on which indemnification is sought under this Section, from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, stamp or other similar taxes, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses) or disbursements of any kind whatsoever, regardless of their merit, which may at any time (including, without limitation, at any time following the payment of the Credit Party Obligations) be demanded, claimed, imposed on, incurred by or asserted against any such indemnitee in any way directly or indirectly relating to or arising out of any Credit Document or any documents contemplated by or referred to herein or therein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by any such indemnitee under or in connection with any of the foregoing, including without limitation all reasonable costs required to be associated with claims for damages to persons or property and reasonable attorneys’ and consultants’ fees and expenses and court costs; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements to the extent resulting from such indemnitee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. In no event shall the Agent be liable for special, indirect, punitive or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever (including but not limited to loss of profit, goodwill, reputation, business opportunity or anticipated saving), even if the Agent has been advised as to the likelihood of such loss or damage and regardless of the form of action. The agreements in this Section 8.7 shall survive the termination of this Credit Agreement and payment of the Notes and all other amounts payable hereunder and shall also survive, as to any Administrative Agent, the resignation or removal of such Administrative Agent.

      Section 8.8 Resignation of Administrative Agent.

(a) The Administrative Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders and the Company. Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, subject to the approval of the Company, with such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, to appoint a successor, which shall be a bank with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of any such bank with an office in the United States; provided, however, that if an Event of Default should exist at such time, no approval of the Company shall be required hereunder. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the “Resignation Effective Date”), then the retiring Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), on behalf of the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above; provided that in no event shall any such successor Administrative Agent be a Defaulting Lender. Whether or not a successor has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date.

(b) If the Person serving as Administrative Agent is a Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (d) of the definition thereof, the Required Lenders may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, by notice in writing to the Company and such Person remove such Person as Administrative Agent and, subject to the approval of the Company, with such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, appoint a successor; provided, however, that if an Event of Default should exist at such time, no approval of the Company shall be required hereunder. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the “Removal Effective Date”), then such removal shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice on the Removal Effective Date.

(c) With effect from the Resignation Effective Date or the Removal Effective Date (as applicable) (i) the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Credit Documents and (ii) except for any indemnity payments owed to the retiring or removed Administrative Agent, all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender and Issuing Lender directly, until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent as provided for above. Upon the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Administrative Agent (other than any rights to indemnity payments owed to the retiring or removed Administrative Agent), and the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Credit Documents. The fees payable by the Borrowers to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrowers and such successor. After the retiring or removed Administrative Agent’s resignation or removal hereunder and under the other Credit Documents, the provisions of this Article and Sections 2.17 and 9.5 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring or removed Administrative Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring or removed Administrative Agent was acting as Administrative Agent.

      Section 8.9 Nature of Duties; Several Obligations.

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, none of the Bookrunners, Arrangers, Documentation Agents or Syndication Agents listed on the cover page hereof shall have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents, except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent, a Lender or an Issuing Lender hereunder. In the event there are two or more Administrative Agents at any time hereunder, each Administrative Agent’s obligations hereunder shall be several and not joint.

      Section 8.10 Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claims.

In case of the pendency of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law or any other judicial proceeding relative to any Credit Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or LOC Obligation 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 Borrowers) shall be entitled and empowered (but not obligated) by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:

(a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, LOC Obligations 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 Lenders, the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders, the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders, the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent under Sections 2.5, 2.17 and 9.5) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and

(b) to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;

and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender and Issuing Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders, 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 Sections 2.5, 2.17 and 9.5.

      Section 8.11 Releases.

(a) The Lenders and the Issuing Lenders irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its discretion,

(i) to release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent under any Credit Document (x) upon termination of all Commitments and payment in full of all Credit Party Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations) and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit, (y) that is sold or otherwise disposed of or to be sold or otherwise disposed of as part of or in connection with any sale or other disposition permitted under the Credit Documents, or (z) subject to Section 9.1, if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Lenders; and

(iii) to release any Guarantor from its obligations under its Guaranty if such Person ceases to be a Subsidiary as a result of a transaction permitted under the Credit Documents.

In addition, the Administrative Agent shall release the pledge of any first-tier Foreign Subsidiary of a US Credit Party to the extent that such Foreign Subsidiary ceases to be a first-tier Foreign Subsidiary.

Upon request by the Administrative Agent at any time, the Required Lenders will confirm in writing the Administrative Agent’s authority to release its interest in particular types or items of property, or to release any Guarantor from its obligations under it Guaranty pursuant to this Section 8.11.

(b) The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Administrative Agent’s Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Credit Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Administrative Agent be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.

      Section 8.12 Force Majeure.

The Administrative Agent shall not incur any liability for not performing any act or fulfilling any duty, obligation or responsibility hereunder by reason of any occurrence beyond the control of the Administrative Agent (including but not limited to any act or provision of any present or future law or regulation or governmental  authority, any act of God or war, civil unrest, local or national disturbance or disaster, any act of terrorism, or the unavailability of the Federal Reserve Bank wire or facsimile or other wire or communication facility).

The Required Lenders may, or with the written consent of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent may, from time to time, (x) enter into with the Credit Parties written amendments, supplements or modifications hereto and to the other Credit Documents for the purpose of adding any provisions to this Credit Agreement or the other Credit Documents or changing in any manner the rights of the Lenders or of the Credit Parties hereunder or thereunder or (b) waive or consent to the departure from, on such terms and conditions as the Required Lenders may specify in such instrument, any of the requirements of this Credit Agreement or the other Credit Documents or any Default or Event of Default and its consequences; provided, however, that no such amendment, supplement, modification, release, waiver or consent shall:

(i) reduce the amount or extend the scheduled date of maturity of any Loan or Note or any installment thereon, or reduce the stated rate of any interest or fee payable hereunder (except in connection with a waiver of interest at the increased post-default rate set forth in Section 2.9 which shall be determined by a vote of the Required Lenders) or extend the scheduled date of any payment thereof or increase the amount or extend the expiration date of any Lender’s Commitment, in each case without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby; provided that, it is understood and agreed that (x) any reduction in the stated rate of interest on Revolving Loans shall only require the written consent of each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment and (y) any reduction in the stated rate of interest on Term Loans shall only require the written consent of each Lender holding a Term Commitment or Term Loan; or

This Section 9.5(b) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims, damages, etc. arising from any non-Tax claim.

The obligations of the Lenders under this paragraph (c) are several and not joint.

(d) Waiver of Consequential Damages, Etc. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, none of the Borrowers shall assert, and each of the Borrowers hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit, or the use of the proceeds thereof. No Indemnitee referred to in paragraph (b) above shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Credit Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment.

(e) Payments. All amounts due under this Section shall be payable not later than five (5) Business Days after demand therefor.

(f) Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section shall survive the termination of the Credit Documents and payment of the Credit Party Obligations hereunder.

      Section 9.6 Successors and Assigns; Participations; Purchasing Lenders.

(a) This Credit Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Credit Parties, the Lenders, the Administrative Agent, all future holders of the Notes and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Credit Parties may not assign or transfer any of their rights or obligations under this Credit Agreement or the other Credit Documents without the prior written consent of each Lender.

(b) Any Lender may, in the ordinary course of its business and in accordance with applicable law, without the consent of, or notice to the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, at any time sell to one or more banks or other entities (“Participants”), but not to entities prohibited to receive assignments under Section 9.6(c)(iv), participating interests in any Loan owing to such Lender, any Note held by such Lender, any Commitment of such Lender, or any other interest of such Lender hereunder. In the event of any such sale by a Lender of participating interests to a Participant, such Lender’s obligations under this Credit Agreement to the other parties to this Credit Agreement shall remain unchanged, such Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance thereof, such Lender shall remain the holder of any such Note for all purposes under this Credit Agreement, and the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Credit Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, each Lender shall be responsible for the indemnity under Section 8.7 with respect to any payments made by such Lender to its Participant(s). No Lender shall transfer or grant any participation under which the Participant shall have rights to approve any amendment to or waiver of this Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document except to the extent such amendment or waiver would (i) extend the scheduled maturity of any Loan or Note or any installment thereon in which such Participant is participating, or reduce the stated rate or extend the time of payment of interest or fees thereon (except in connection with a waiver of interest at the increased post-default rate set forth in Section 2.9 which shall be determined by a vote of the Required Lenders) or reduce the principal amount thereof, or increase the amount of the Participant’s participation over the amount thereof then in effect; provided that, it is understood and agreed that (A) a waiver of any Default or Event of Default shall not constitute a change in the terms of such participation, and (B) an increase in any Commitment or Loan shall be permitted without consent of any participant if the Participant’s participation is not increased as a result thereof, (ii) except as provided in Section 8.11, release a Borrower or all or substantially all of the Guarantors from their obligations under the US Guaranty or the Foreign Guaranty, as applicable, (iii) release all or substantially all of the Collateral, or (iv) consent to the assignment or transfer by the Borrowers of any of their rights and obligations under this Credit Agreement. In the case of any such participation, the Participant shall not have any rights under this Credit Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents (the Participant’s rights against such Lender in respect of such participation to be those set forth in the agreement executed by such Lender in favor of the Participant relating thereto) and all amounts payable by the Borrowers hereunder shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold such participation; provided that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.16, 2.17, 2.18 and 9.5 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 2.18 (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.18 shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section; provided, further that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Sections 2.18(c) and 2.20 as if it were an assignee under paragraph (c) of this Section; and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.16 or 2.18, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive if the participating Lender were still the owner of such interest as of the date of such Change in Law . Each Lender that sells a participation agrees, at the Company’s request and expense, to use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Borrowers to effectuate the provisions of Section 2.20 with respect to any Participant. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 9.7(b) as though it were a Lender; provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 9.7(a) as though it were a Lender.

(c) Any Lender may, in accordance with applicable law, at any time, sell or assign to any Lender or any Affiliate or Approved Fund thereof and to one or more additional banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, investment funds or other entities (“Purchasing Lenders”), all or any part of its rights and obligations under this Credit Agreement and the Notes (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans at the time owing to it) in minimum amounts of (x) $5,000,000 with respect to its Revolving Commitment and its Revolving Loans (or, if less, the entire amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment and Revolving Loans), and (y) $1,000,000 in the case of Term Loans, and in each such case, subject to the following conditions:

(i) Such assignment shall be pursuant to an Assignment Agreement, executed by such Purchasing Lender, such transferor Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Company (to the extent required) and delivered to the Administrative Agent for its acceptance and recording in the Register,

(ii) any assignment shall require the consent of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) for assignments in respect of the Revolving Loans or any unfunded Commitment to any Person who is not a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund,

(iii) so long as no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, any sale or assignment of all or any portion of the Revolving Loans, Term Loans, a Term Loan Commitment or a Revolving Loan Commitment shall require the consent of the Company, provided, however. that any sale or assignment to an existing Lender, or Affiliate or Approved Fund thereof, shall not require the consent of the Company nor shall any such sale or assignment be subject to the minimum assignment amounts specified herein, and provided further that the Company shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received notice thereof.

(iv) No assignment of any Loans or Commitment shall be made to (A) any Borrower or any of the Borrowers’ Affiliates or Subsidiaries, or (B) to any Defaulting Lender or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Person who, upon becoming a Lender hereunder, would constitute a Defaulting Lender or a Subsidiary thereof, or (C) to a natural Person (or a holding company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural Person).

(v) Upon such execution, delivery, acceptance and recording, from and after the Transfer Effective Date specified in such Assignment Agreement, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, (1) the Purchasing Lender thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent provided in such Assignment Agreement, have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder with a Commitment as set forth therein, and (2) the transferor Lender thereunder shall, to the extent provided in such Assignment Agreement, be released from its obligations under this Credit Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment Agreement covering all or the remaining portion of a transferor Lender’s rights and obligations under this Credit Agreement, such transferor Lender shall cease to be a party hereto; provided, however, that such Lender shall continue to be entitled to any rights under Sections 2.16, 2.17, 2.18 and 9.5 with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment), and provided further that, except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed to by the affected parties, no assignment by a Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender. Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this paragraph shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (b) of this Section. Such Assignment Agreement shall be deemed to amend this Credit Agreement to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to reflect the addition of such Purchasing Lender and the resulting adjustment of Commitment Percentages arising from the purchase by such Purchasing Lender of all or a portion of the rights and obligations of such transferor Lender under this Credit Agreement and the Notes. On or prior to the Transfer Effective Date specified in such Assignment Agreement, the Borrowers, at their own expense, shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent in exchange for the Notes delivered to the Administrative Agent pursuant to such Assignment Agreement new Notes to the order of such Purchasing Lender in an amount equal to the Commitment assumed by it pursuant to such Assignment Agreement and, unless the transferor Lender has not retained a Commitment hereunder, new Notes to the order of the transferor Lender in an amount equal to the Commitment retained by it hereunder. Such new Notes shall be dated the Closing Date and shall otherwise be in the form of the Notes replaced thereby.

(vi) Certain Additional Payments. In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder, no such assignment shall be effective unless and until, in addition to the other conditions thereto set forth herein, the parties to the assignment shall make such additional payments to the Administrative Agent in an aggregate amount sufficient, upon distribution thereof as appropriate (which may be outright payment, purchases by the assignee of participations or subparticipations, or other compensating actions, including funding, with the consent of the Company and the Administrative Agent, the applicable pro rata share of Loans previously requested but not funded by the Defaulting Lender, to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (x) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender, each Swingline Lender and each other Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon), and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full pro rata share of all Loans and participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans in accordance with its pro rata share thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder shall become effective under applicable law without compliance with the provisions of this paragraph, then the assignee of such interest shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.

(d) The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain at its address referred to in Section 9.2 a copy of each Assignment Agreement delivered to it and a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitment of, and principal amount (and stated interest) of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time. A Loan (and the related Note) recorded on the Register may only be assigned or sold in whole or in part upon registration of such assignment or sale on the Register. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender for all purposes of this Credit Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Company or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. In the event that any Lender sells participations in a Loan recorded on the Register, such Lender, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each participant in such Loans held by it and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Credit Documents (the “Participant Register”), provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any participant or any information relating to a participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Credit Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.. A Loan recorded on the Register (and the registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) may be participated in whole or in part only by registration of such participation on the Participant Register (and each registered Note shall expressly so provide). Any participation of such Loan recorded on the Register (and the registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) may be effected only by the registration of such participation on the Participant Register. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, (i) the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register, and (ii) the Administrative Agent may treat the holder in whose name a Note is registered as the owner of such Note for all purposes, whether or not such Note is overdue, and the Administrative Agent shall not be affected by notice to the contrary except as required by applicable law.

(e) Upon its receipt of a duly executed Assignment Agreement, together with payment to the Administrative Agent by the transferor Lender or the Purchasing Lender, as agreed between them, of a registration and processing fee of $3,500 (which registration and processing fee shall not be payable in connection with an assignment to an Affiliate) for each Purchasing Lender listed in such Assignment Agreement and the Notes subject to such Assignment Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall (i) accept such Assignment Agreement, (ii) record the information contained therein in the Register and (iii) give prompt notice of such acceptance and recordation to the Lenders and the Company.

(f) The Borrowers authorize each Lender to disclose to any Participant or Purchasing Lender (each, a “Transferee”) and any prospective Transferee any and all financial information in such Lender’s possession concerning the Company and its Subsidiaries which has been delivered to such Lender by or on behalf of the Borrowers pursuant to this Credit Agreement or which has been delivered to such Lender by or on behalf of the Borrowers in connection with such Lender’s credit evaluation of the Borrowers and their Affiliates prior to becoming a party to this Credit Agreement, in each case subject to Section 9.15.

(g) At the time of each assignment pursuant to this Section 9.6 to a Person which is not already a Lender hereunder, the respective assignee Lender shall provide to the Company and the Administrative Agent the appropriate Internal Revenue Service Forms described in Section 2.18.

(h) Nothing herein shall prohibit any Lender from pledging or assigning any of its rights under this Credit Agreement (including, without limitation, any right to payment of principal and interest under any Note) to secure obligations of such Lender, including without limitation, any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and such pledge and assignment may be made without the consent of the Borrowers; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

(i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, any Lender may exchange, continue or rollover all or a portion of its Loans in connection with any refinancing, extension, loan modification or similar transaction permitted by the terms of this Agreement, pursuant to a cashless settlement mechanism approved by the Company, the Administrative Agent and such Lender.

      Section 9.7 Adjustments; Set off; Sharing of Payments by Lenders.

(a) Sharing of Payments. If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Loans or other obligations hereunder resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans and accrued interest thereon or other such obligations greater than its pro rata share thereof as provided herein, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall (a) notify the Administrative Agent of such fact, and (b) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and such other obligations of the other Lenders, or make such other adjustments as shall be equitable, 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 Loans and other amounts owing them; 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 (x) any payment made by the Borrowers pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including the application of funds arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender), or (y) 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 LOC Obligations to any assignee or participant, other than to the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply).

Each Credit Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that (subject to Section 9.7(b)) any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against each Credit Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of each Credit Party in the amount of such participation.

(b) Right of Setoff. In addition to any rights and remedies of the Lenders provided by law (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off), each Lender shall have the right, at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, without prior notice to the Borrowers or the applicable Credit Party, any such notice being expressly waived by the Credit Parties to the extent permitted by applicable law, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, to setoff and appropriate and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held by or owing to such Lender , such Issuing Lender or any such Affiliate or any branch or agency thereof to or for the credit or the account of the Borrowers or any other Credit Party, or any part thereof in such amounts as such Lender may elect, against and on account of the Loans and other Credit Party Obligations of the Borrowers and the other Credit Parties to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and claims of every nature and description of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders against the Borrowers and the other Credit Parties, in any currency, whether arising hereunder, under any other Credit Document or any Secured Hedging Agreement pursuant to the terms of this Credit Agreement, as such Lender may elect, whether or not the Administrative Agent or the Lenders have made any demand for payment and although such obligations, liabilities and claims may be contingent or unmatured or are owed to a branch, office or Affiliate of such Lender or such Issuing Lender different from the branch, office or Affiliate holding such deposit or obligated on such indebtedness; provided that in the event that any Defaulting Lender shall exercise any such right of setoff, (x) all amounts so set off shall be paid over immediately to the Administrative Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.22 and, pending such payment, shall be segregated by such Defaulting Lender from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders, and the Lenders, and (y) the Defaulting Lender shall provide promptly to the Administrative Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the Credit Party Obligations owing to such Defaulting Lender as to which it exercised such right of setoff. The aforesaid right of set-off may be exercised by such Lender against the Borrowers, any other Credit Party or against any trustee in bankruptcy, debtor in possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver or execution, judgment or attachment creditor of the Borrowers or any other Credit Party, or against anyone else claiming through or against the Borrowers, any other Credit Party or any such trustee in bankruptcy, debtor in possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver, or execution, judgment or attachment creditor, notwithstanding the fact that such right of set-off shall not have been exercised by such Lender prior to the occurrence of any Event of Default. The rights of each Lender, each Issuing Lender and their respective Affiliates under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) that such Lender, such Issuing Lender or their respective Affiliates may have. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Company and the Administrative Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Lender; provided, however, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. Notwithstanding the terms of this Section to the contrary, each of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent acknowledge and agree that it will not set-off any account of any Foreign Borrower to repay Credit Party Obligations of a US Credit Party.

      Section 9.8 Table of Contents and Section Headings.

The table of contents and the Section and subsection headings herein are intended for convenience only and shall be ignored in construing this Credit Agreement.

      Section 9.9 Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness; Electronic Execution.

(a) Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. This Agreement and the other Credit Documents, and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent or the Arranger, constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. Except as provided in Section 4.1, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof that, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by facsimile or in electronic (i.e., “pdf” or “tif”) format shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

(b) Electronic Execution of Assignments. The words “execution,” “signed,” “signature,” and words of like import in any Assignment Agreement shall be deemed to include electronic signatures or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any applicable law, including the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, the New York State Electronic Signatures and Records Act, or any other similar state laws based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act.

      Section 9.10 Effectiveness.

This Credit Agreement shall become effective on the date on which all of the parties have signed a copy hereof (whether the same or different copies) and shall have delivered the same to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 9.2 or, in the case of the Lenders, shall have given to the Administrative Agent written, telecopied or telex notice (actually received) at such office that the same has been signed and mailed to it.

      Section 9.11 Severability.

Any provision of this Credit Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

      Section 9.12 Integration.

This Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents represent the agreement of the Borrowers, the other Credit Parties, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders with respect to the subject matter hereof, and there are no promises, undertakings, representations or warranties by the Administrative Agent, the Borrowers, the other Credit Parties, or any Lender relative to the subject matter hereof not expressly set forth or referred to herein or therein.

      Section 9.13 Governing Law.

This Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents and any claims, controversy, dispute or cause of action (whether in contract or tort or otherwise) based upon, arising out of or relating to this Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document (except, as to any other Credit Document, as expressly set forth therein) and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby shall be governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the law of the State of New York without regard to conflict of laws principles thereof (other than Sections 5-1401 and 5-1402 of The New York General Obligations Law).

      Section 9.14 Consent to Jurisdiction and Service of Process.

(a) Jurisdiction. The Borrowers and each other Credit Party irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that it will not commence any action, litigation or proceeding of any kind or description, whether in law or equity, whether in contract or in tort or otherwise, against the Administrative Agent, any Lender, any Issuing Lender, or any Related Party of the foregoing in any way relating to this Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document or the transactions relating hereto or thereto, in any forum other than the courts of the State of New York sitting in New York County, and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, and each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the jurisdiction of such  courts and agrees that all claims in respect of any such action, litigation or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State court or, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in such federal court.  Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action, litigation or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Borrowers or another Credit Party are unable to pursue any action, litigation or proceeding in one of the forums set forth above because the applicable Administrative Agent, Lender, Issuing Lender or Related Party is not subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of such forum, then such Borrower or Credit Party may bring such action, litigation or proceeding in the courts of a forum having jurisdiction over such applicable counterparty. Nothing in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Credit Document against the Borrower or any other Credit Party or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.

(b) Waiver of Venue. Each Borrower and each other Credit Party irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document in any court referred to in paragraph (a) of this Section. Each of the parties hereto hereby 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.

(c) Service of Process. Each party hereto irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.2. Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party hereto to serve process in any other manner permitted by applicable law.

      Section 9.15 Confidentiality.

Each of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and each of the Lenders agree to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined below), except that Information may be disclosed (a) to its Affiliates and to its Related Parties (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential); (b) to the extent required or requested by any regulatory authority purporting to have jurisdiction over such Person or its Related Parties (including any self-regulatory authority, such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners); (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process; (d) to any other party hereto; (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or under any other Credit Document or any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Credit Document or the enforcement of rights hereunder or thereunder; (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective party (or its Related Parties) to any swap, derivative or other transaction under which payments are to be made by reference to the Borrower and its obligations, this Agreement or payments hereunder; (g) on a confidential basis to (i) any rating agency in connection with rating the Borrowers or their Subsidiaries or the Loans and Revolving Credit Commitment or (ii) the CUSIP Service Bureau or any similar agency in connection with the issuance and monitoring of CUSIP numbers with respect to the facilities contemplated by this Agreement; (h) with the consent of the Company ; or (i) to the extent such Information (x) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section, or (y) becomes available to the Administrative Agent, any Lender, any Issuing Lender or any of their respective Affiliates on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrowers. In addition, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may disclose the existence of this Agreement and information about this Agreement to market data collectors, similar service providers to the lending industry and service providers to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in connection with the administration of this Agreement, the other Credit Documents, and the Commitments.

For purposes of this Section, “Information” means all information received from the Borrowers or any of their Subsidiaries relating to the Borrowers or any of their Subsidiaries or any of their respective businesses, other than any such information that is available to the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by a Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries of a Borrower. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided 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 to its own confidential information.

      Section 9.16 Acknowledgments.

The Company and the other Credit Parties each hereby acknowledges that:

(a) it has been advised by counsel in the negotiation, execution and delivery of each Credit Document;

(b) neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender has any fiduciary relationship with or duty to the Company or any other Credit Party arising out of or in connection with this Credit Agreement and the relationship between the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, on one hand, and the Company and the other Credit Parties, on the other hand, in connection herewith is solely that of debtor and creditor; and

(c) no joint venture exists among the Lenders or among the Company or the other Credit Parties and the Lenders.

      Section 9.17 Waivers of Jury Trial; Waiver of Consequential Damages.

THE BORROWERS, THE OTHER CREDIT PARTIES, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, THE ISSUING LENDER AND THE LENDERS HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS CREDIT AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PERSON HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PERSON 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 CREDIT DOCUMENTS BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.

      Section 9.18 Patriot Act Notice.

Each Lender and the Administrative Agent (for itself and not on behalf of any other party) hereby notifies the Company 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 the Borrowers, which information includes the name and address of the Borrowers and other information that will allow such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, to identify the Borrowers in accordance with the Patriot Act. Accordingly, each of the parties agrees to provide to the Administrative Agent upon its request from time to time such identifying information and documentation as may be available for such party in order to enable the Administrative Agent to comply with applicable law.

      Section 9.19 Release of Collateral.

Each Lender hereby directs the Administrative Agent to release, and the Administrative Agent agrees to release, any Lien held by it under the Security Documents on the Termination Date; provided, however, that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to execute any such document on terms which, in its opinion, would expose it to liability or create any obligation or entail any consequence other than the release of such Liens without recourse or warranty.

      Section 9.20 Judgment Currency.

If, for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder or under any other Credit Document in one currency into another currency, the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent could purchase the first currency with such other currency on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of each of the Credit Parties in respect of any such sum due from it to the Administrative Agent or any Lender hereunder or under the other Credit Documents shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the “Judgment Currency”) other than Dollars, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by the Administrative Agent or such Lender of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Administrative Agent or such Lender may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase Dollars with the Judgment Currency. If the amount of Dollars so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in Dollars, the Company agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Administrative Agent or such Lender or the Person to whom such obligation was owing against such loss. If the amount of Dollars so purchased is greater than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in such currency, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders agree to apply such excess to any Credit Party Obligations then due and payable in accordance with the terms of Section 2.12.

      Section 9.21 Foreign Subsidiary Restructuring.

After the Closing Date, the Company intends to restructure its Foreign Subsidiaries to improve corporate management efficiency, reduce expenses and minimize tax obligations. The reorganization will be accomplished by consolidating the ownership of some of the Foreign Subsidiaries (including possibly some Foreign Credit Parties). Therefore, notwithstanding any provision to the contrary within this Credit Agreement, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders agree that the Credit Parties shall be permitted, without seeking an amendment or waiver under this Credit Agreement, to effect this restructuring by contributing, distributing, selling or otherwise transferring the Capital Stock of certain existing Foreign Subsidiaries (including Foreign Credit Parties) to one or more Foreign Subsidiaries; provided that (a) any Foreign Subsidiary that is a Foreign Credit Party prior to such contribution, distribution, sale, merger or other transfer shall remain a Foreign Credit Party after giving effect thereto, if still existing, and (b) if a Foreign Credit Party existing prior to such contribution, distribution, sale, merger or other transfer does not exist thereafter, the Foreign Subsidiary to which such Foreign Credit Party was contributed, distributed, sold, merged or otherwise transferred shall join this Credit Agreement as a Foreign Credit Party. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders further agree that they will, pursuant to Section 8.11, release any existing pledges of Capital Stock of a Foreign Subsidiary that, after the restructuring, is no longer a first-tier Foreign Subsidiary of the Company; provided, however, that 65% of the voting Capital Stock of any first-tier Foreign Subsidiaries of the Company, if any, resulting from such restructuring will be pledged to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders.

      Section 9.22 Amendment and Restatement.

This Credit Agreement amends and restates the Existing Agreement in its entirety. All loans and advances evidenced by the Existing Agreement shall be deemed to be included in, and refinanced by, the Loan pursuant to this Credit Agreement. All the obligations pursuant to the Existing Agreement shall continue to be the obligations under this Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents. Nothing herein shall be a discharge of the loans and advances pursuant to the Existing Agreement.

      Section 9.23 No Novation or Satisfaction.

AT NO TIME SHALL THIS CREDIT AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS CONSTITUTE, OR BE DEEMED OR CONSTRUED TO CONSTITUTE, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, A NOVATION, SATISFACTION, RELEASE, DISCHARGE OR TERMINATION (EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN SEPARATE TERMINATION AGREEMENTS ENTERED INTO IN CONNECTION WITH THIS CREDIT AGREEMENT) OF THE ORIGINAL LOAN OR THE CREDIT DOCUMENTS ENTERED INTO IN CONNECTION WITH THE EXISTING AGREEMENT OR OF ANY OF THE LIENS AND SECURITY INTEREST CREATED PURSUANT THERETO OR IN CONNECTION THEREWITH. INSTEAD, AT ALL TIMES, THIS CREDIT AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS SHALL CONSTITUTE, AND SHALL BE DEEMED AND CONSTRUED TO CONSTITUTE, A CONTINUATION OF THE ORIGINAL LOAN AND THE CREDIT DOCUMENTS ENTERED INTO IN CONNECTION WITH THE EXISTING AGREEMENT IN MODIFIED FORM AND A REAFFIRMATION OF THE CONTINUING EFFECTIVENESS OF ALL LIENS AND SECURITY INTERESTS CREATED PURSUANT THERETO OR IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.

Each Foreign Borrower hereby agrees that after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, such Foreign Borrower will not demand, sue for or otherwise attempt to collect any Indebtedness of any other Foreign Borrower owing to such Foreign Borrower until the Credit Party Obligations shall have been paid in full in cash. If, notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, such Foreign Borrower shall collect, enforce or receive any amounts in respect of such Indebtedness before payment in full in cash of the Credit Party Obligations, such amounts shall be collected, enforced, received by such Foreign Borrower as trustee for the Administrative Agent and be paid over to the Administrative Agent for the pro rata accounts of the relevant Lenders to be applied to repay (or be held as security for the repayment of) the Credit Party Obligations of the Foreign Borrowers.

(i) The provisions of this Section 11.10 are made for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and the Lenders and their successors and assigns, and may be enforced in good faith by them from time to time against any or all of the Foreign Borrowers as often as the occasion therefor may arise and without requirement on the part of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or the Lenders first to marshal any of their claims or to exercise any of their rights against any other Borrower or to exhaust any remedies available to them against any other Borrower or to resort to any other source or means of obtaining payment of any of the Credit Party Obligations hereunder or to elect any other remedy. The provisions of this Section 11.10 shall remain in effect until all of the Credit Party Obligations shall have been paid in full or otherwise fully satisfied. If at any time, any payment, or any part thereof, made in respect of any of the Credit Party Obligations of the Foreign Borrowers, is rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing or the Lenders upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any of the Foreign Borrowers or is repaid in good faith settlement of a pending or threatened avoidance claim, or otherwise, the provisions of this Section 11.10 will forthwith be reinstated in effect, as though such payment had not been made.

(j) It is the intention and agreement of the Borrowers and the Lenders that the obligations of the Borrowers under this Agreement shall be valid and enforceable against the Borrowers to the maximum extent permitted by Applicable Law. Accordingly, if any provision of this Agreement creating any obligation of the Foreign Borrowers in favor of the Lenders shall be declared to be invalid or unenforceable in any respect or to any extent, it is the stated intention and agreement of the Foreign Borrowers and the Lenders that any balance of the obligation created by such provision and all other obligations of the Foreign Borrowers to the Lenders created by other provisions of this Agreement shall remain valid and enforceable. Likewise, if by final order a court of competent jurisdiction shall declare any sums which the Lenders may be otherwise entitled to collect from the Foreign Borrowers under this Agreement to be in excess of those permitted under any Applicable Law (including any fraudulent conveyance or like statute or rule of law) applicable to the Foreign Borrowers’ obligations under this Agreement, it is the stated intention and agreement of the Foreign Borrowers and the Lenders that all sums not in excess of those permitted under such Applicable Law shall remain fully collectible by the Lenders from the Foreign Borrowers.

(k) The foregoing notwithstanding, in no event shall any Foreign Guarantor that is not a US Credit Party be deemed to be liable for any Credit Party Obligations of any of the US Credit Parties, and no payments by any such Foreign Guarantor shall be applied to any amounts owed by any of the US Credit Parties.
