          SECTION 5.1. Optional Redemption.
          (1) The Company may, at its option, redeem the Notes, in whole or from time to time in part, prior to the Maturity Date at a Redemption Price equal to the greater of: (i) 100% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes to the Redemption Date; or (ii) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal of and interest on the Notes to be redeemed (exclusive of unpaid interest accrued thereon to the Redemption Date) discounted to the Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate plus 50 basis points, plus, unpaid interest on the Notes to be redeemed, accrued to the Redemption Date.

24


 

amount of the Notes of a denomination larger than the minimum authorized denomination for the Notes.
          The Trustee shall promptly notify the Company in writing of the Notes selected for redemption and, in the case of any Notes selected for partial redemption, the aggregate principal amount thereof to be redeemed.

25


 

interest on and after such Redemption Date and that the only remaining right of the Holders will be to receive payment of the Redemption Price.
          Notice of redemption of Notes to be redeemed shall be given by the Company or, on Company Request, by the Trustee at the expense of the Company.
          (4) On or before 11:00 a.m., New York time, on any Redemption Date, the Company shall deposit with the Trustee or with a Paying Agent (or, if the Company is acting as its own Paying Agent, segregate and hold in trust as provided in Section 1003 of the Indenture) an amount of money sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of all the Notes which are to be redeemed on that date.
          (5) Notice of redemption having been given as aforesaid, the Notes so to be redeemed shall, on the Redemption Date, become due and payable at the Redemption Price therein specified, and from and after such date (unless the Company shall default in the payment of the Redemption Price) such Notes shall cease to bear interest.

          (6) Any Note which is to be redeemed only in part shall be surrendered at an office or agency in accordance with the notice of redemption (with, if the Company or the Trustee shall so require, due endorsement by, or a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Trustee duly executed by, the Holder thereof or other appropriate person), and the Company shall execute, and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver to the Holder of such Note, without service charge, a new Note or Notes of any authorized denominations as requested by such Holder, in aggregate principal amount equal to and in exchange for the unredeemed portion of the principal of the Note so surrendered.

          (2) Each Guarantor hereby agrees that its obligations hereunder shall be unconditional, irrespective of the validity, regularity or enforceability of the Notes, this Second Supplemental Indenture or the Indenture, the absence of any action to enforce the same, any waiver or consent by any Holder of the Notes with respect to any provisions of this Second Supplemental Indenture, the Indenture or the Notes, any release of any other Guarantor, the recovery of any judgment against the Company, any action to enforce the same, whether or not a Guarantee is affixed to any particular Note, or any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a Guarantor.
          (3) Each Guarantor further agrees that, as between it, on the one hand, and the Holders of the Notes and the Trustee, on the other hand, (a) the maturity of the Obligations guaranteed hereby may be accelerated as provided in Article IV of this Second Supplemental Indenture for the purposes of the Guarantee, notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such acceleration in respect of the Obligations, and (b) in the event of any acceleration of such Obligations as provided in Article IV of this Second Supplemental Indenture, such Obligations (whether or not due and payable) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Guarantor for the purposes of its Guarantee.
          SECTION 9.2. Waiver.
          To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each of the Guarantors waives diligence, presentment, demand of, payment, filing of claims with a court in the event of insolvency or bankruptcy of the Company, any right to require a proceeding first against the Company, protest, notice and all demands whatsoever and covenants that the Guarantee will not be discharged except by complete performance of the Obligations contained in the Notes, this Second Supplemental Indenture and Indenture.
          SECTION 9.3. Guarantee of Payment.
          Each of the Guarantors further agrees that its Guarantee constitutes a guarantee of payment, performance and compliance when due and not a guarantee of

37


 

collection, and waives any right to require that any resort be had by the Trustee or any Holder of the Notes to the security, if any, held for payment of the Obligations.
          SECTION 9.4. No Discharge or Diminishment of Guarantee.
          Subject to Section 9.10 of this Second Supplemental Indenture, the obligations of each of the Guarantors hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, termination, impairment or for any reason (other than the payment in full in cash of the Obligations), including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise of any of the Obligations, and shall not be subject to any defense or setoff, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of the Obligations or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the obligations of each of the Guarantors hereunder shall not be discharged or impaired or otherwise affected by the failure of the Trustee or any Holder of the Notes to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any remedy under this Second Supplemental Indenture, the Indenture or the Notes, any other guarantee or any other agreement, by any waiver or modification of any provision thereof, by any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of the Obligations, or by any other act or omission or delay to do any other act that may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of any Guarantor or that would otherwise operate as a discharge of any Guarantor as a matter of law or equity (other than the payment in full in cash of all the Obligations).
          SECTION 9.5. Defenses of Company Waived.
          To the extent permitted by applicable law, each of the Guarantors waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Company or any other Guarantor or the unenforceability of the Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Company, other than final payment in full in cash of the Obligations. Each of the Guarantors waives any defense arising out of any such election even though such election operates to impair or to extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of each of the Guarantors against the Company or any security.
          SECTION 9.6. Continued Effectiveness.
          Subject to Section 9.10 of this Second Supplemental Indenture, each of the Guarantors further agrees that its Guarantee hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of principal of or interest on any Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by the Trustee or any Holder of the Notes upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of the Company or otherwise.
          SECTION 9.7. Subrogation.
          In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right of each of the Guarantors by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Company to pay any Obligation when and as the same shall become due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, each of the Guarantors hereby promises to and

38


 

will, upon receipt of written demand by the Trustee or any Holder of the Notes, forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Holders in cash the amount of such unpaid Obligations, and thereupon the Holders shall, assign (except to the extent that such assignment would render a Guarantor a “creditor” of the Company within the meaning of Section 547 of Title 11 of the United States Code as now in effect or hereafter amended or any comparable provision of any successor statute) the amount of the Obligations owed to it and paid by such Guarantor pursuant to this Guarantee to such Guarantor, such assignment to be pro rata to the extent the Obligations in question were discharged by such Guarantor, or make such other disposition thereof as such Guarantor shall direct (all without recourse to the Holders, and without any representation or warranty by the Holders). If (a) a Guarantor shall make payment to the Holders of all or any part of the Obligations and (b) all the Obligations and all other amounts payable under this Second Supplemental Indenture shall be paid in full, the Trustee will, at such Guarantor’s request, execute and deliver to such Guarantor appropriate documents, without recourse and without representation or warranty, necessary to evidence the transfer by subrogation to such Guarantor of an interest in the Obligations resulting from such payment by such Guarantor.
          SECTION 9.8. Information.
          Each of the Guarantors assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of the Company’s financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks that each of the Guarantors assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that the Trustee and the Holders of the Notes will have no duty to advise the Guarantors of information known to it or any of them regarding such circumstances or risks.
          SECTION 9.9. Subordination.
          Upon payment by any Guarantor of any sums to the Holders, as provided above, all rights of such Guarantor against the Company, arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation or otherwise, shall in all respects be subordinated and junior in right of payment to the prior payment in full in cash of all the Obligations to the Trustee; provided, however, that any right of subrogation that such Guarantor may have pursuant to this Second Supplemental Indenture is subject to Section 9.7 hereof.
          SECTION 9.10. Release of Guarantor.
          (1) A Guarantor shall, upon the occurrence of any of the following events, be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged from all obligations under this Second Supplemental Indenture and its Guarantee without any action required on the part of the Trustee or any Holder; provided that such Guarantor would not, immediately after such release and discharge, be required to become a Guarantor pursuant to Section 6.4 hereof if such Guarantor had incurred its then-existing guarantees, indebtedness for borrowed money (including capital leases) and Liens at the time of such release and discharge:

39


 

     (i) upon notice by the Company to the Trustee, at any time such Guarantor is not a borrower or guarantor under, and has not granted any then-existing Lien to secure any obligations pursuant to, the Existing Credit Facility as amended, or the Bridge Loan, any refinancing or replacement thereof (including as a result of any release from such obligations in connection with being designated an “exempt subsidiary” by the Company (as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement)) or any other Indebtedness for borrowed money (including capital leases) having an aggregate principal amount outstanding in excess of 15% of the Company’s Consolidated Net Worth (other than obligations arising under this Second Supplemental Indenture and the Notes, the 2012 Notes Supplemental Indenture and the 2012 Notes and the 2019 Notes Supplemental Indenture and the 2019 Notes) except where resulting from a discharge or release as a result of payment under such guarantee; provided, however, that no Guarantor shall be released under this subsection unless the Guarantor is substantially concurrently released from its guarantees under the 2012 Notes Supplemental Indenture and the 2012 Notes and the 2019 Notes Supplemental Indenture and the 2019 Notes, or such guarantees have previously been terminated or released;
     (ii) upon the occurrence of the circumstances described in Section 6.4 hereof, of which the Company shall promptly notify the Trustee; or
     (iii) upon the sale, transfer or disposition of all or substantially all of the equity interests or assets of the Guarantor to another Person (other than to the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates).
          (2) A Guarantor shall be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged from all obligations under this Second Supplemental Indenture and its Guarantee without any action required on the part of the Trustee or any Holder upon any Covenant Defeasance or Defeasance with respect to the Notes, subject to reinstatement pursuant to Section 1306 of the Indenture.
          (3) The Trustee shall deliver an appropriate instrument evidencing such release upon receipt of a request of the Company accompanied by an Officers’ Certificate certifying as to the compliance with this Section. Any Guarantor not so released will remain liable for the full amount of the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the Notes provided in this Second Supplemental Indenture and its Guarantee.
          SECTION 9.11. Limitation of Guarantor’s Liability.
          (1) Each Guarantor, and by its acceptance hereof each Holder, hereby confirms that it is the intention of all such parties that the Guarantee by such Guarantor not constitute a fraudulent transfer or conveyance for purposes of Title 11 of the United States Code, the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act, the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act or any similar federal or state law to the extent applicable to any Guarantor. To effectuate the foregoing intention, the Holders and such Guarantor hereby irrevocably agree that the obligations of such Guarantor under this Second Supplemental Indenture and its Guarantee shall be limited to the maximum aggregate amount which, after giving

40


 

effect to all other contingent and fixed liabilities of such Guarantor, and after giving effect to any collections from or payments made by or on behalf of, any other Guarantor in respect of the obligations of such Guarantor under its Guarantee or pursuant to its contribution obligations under this Second Supplemental Indenture, will result in the obligations of such Guarantor under its Guarantee not constituting such fraudulent transfer or conveyance.
          (2) The Guarantee is expressly limited so that in no event, including the acceleration of the maturity of the Securities, shall the amount paid or agreed to be paid in respect of interest on the Securities (or fees or other amounts deemed payment for the use of funds) exceed the maximum permissible amount under applicable law, as in effect on the date hereof and as subsequently amended or modified to allow a greater amount of interest (or fees or other amounts deemed payment for the use of funds) to be paid under the Guarantee. If for any reason the amount in respect of interest (or fees or other amounts deemed payment for the use of funds) required by the Guarantee exceeds such maximum permissible amount, the obligation to pay interest under the Guarantee (or fees or other amounts deemed payment for the use of funds) shall be automatically reduced to such maximum permissible amount and any amounts collected by any holder of any Security in excess of the permissible amount shall be automatically applied to reduce the outstanding principal on such Security.
          SECTION 9.12. Contribution from Other Guarantors.
          Each Guarantor that makes a payment or distribution under its Guarantee shall be entitled to seek contribution from each other non-paying Guarantor in a pro rata amount based on the net assets of each Guarantor, determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in effect in the United States of America as of the date hereof so long as the exercise of such right does not impair the rights of the Holders under the Guarantee.
          SECTION 9.13. No Obligation to Take Action Against the Company.
          Neither the Trustee, any Holder nor any other Person shall have any obligation to enforce or exhaust any rights or remedies or take any other steps under any security for the Obligations or against the Company or any other Person or any Property of the Company or any other Person before the Trustee, such Holder or such other Person is entitled to demand payment and performance by any or all Guarantors of their liabilities and obligations under their Guarantee.
          SECTION 9.14. Execution and Delivery of the Guarantee.
          (1) To further evidence the Guarantee set forth in this Article IX, each Guarantor hereby agrees that a notation of such Guarantee substantially in the form of Section 3.4 hereof shall be endorsed on each Note authenticated and delivered by the Trustee and executed by either manual or facsimile signature of an officer, manager or member, as applicable, of each Guarantor.

41


 

          (2) Each of the Guarantors hereby agrees that its Guarantee set forth in this Article IX shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any failure to endorse on each Note a notation of such Guarantee.
          (3) If an officer of a Guarantor whose signature is on this Second Supplemental Indenture or a Guarantee no longer holds that office or is no longer a manager or member, as applicable, at the time the Trustee authenticates such Guarantee or at any time thereafter, such Guarantor’s Guarantee of such Note shall be valid nevertheless.
          (4) The delivery of any Note by the Trustee, after the authentication thereof hereunder, shall constitute due delivery of any Guarantee set forth in this Second Supplemental Indenture on behalf of each Guarantor.
          SECTION 9.15. Successor Guarantor.
          Unless otherwise released and discharged from its obligations in accordance with this Second Supplemental Indenture, upon any consolidation or merger by any Guarantor with or into any other Person, the successor Person formed by such consolidation or merger shall sign a supplemental indenture and guarantee and succeed to, and be substituted for, and may exercise every right and power of, the Guarantor under this Second Supplemental Indenture and the Indenture with the same effect as if such successor Person has been named as a Guarantor herein, and thereafter the predecessor Person shall be relieved of all obligations and covenants under the Indenture, this Second Supplemental Indenture and the Notes (to the extent the Guarantor was the predecessor Person).
ARTICLE X
Discharge of Obligations Under the Second Supplemental Indenture,
the Indenture and the Notes; Defeasance
          SECTION 10.1. Termination of the Obligations of the Company.
          The obligations of the Company with respect to the Notes under this Second Supplemental Indenture, the Indenture and the Notes shall cease to be of further effect or, at the option of the Company, the Company shall no longer be under any obligation to comply with the covenants described in Articles VI, VII, VIII and IX of the Second Supplemental Indenture and Article 15 of the Indenture and the Events of Default relating to those covenants shall no longer apply to the Company if (a) either (i) all Outstanding Notes (other than Notes replaced pursuant to Section 306 of the Indenture) have been delivered to the Trustee for cancellation or (ii) all Outstanding Notes have become due and payable on the Maturity Date or pursuant to Article V or Section 6.3, and in any case the Company irrevocably deposits, prior to the applicable due date, with the Paying Agent or Trustee (if the Paying Agent is not the Company or any of its Affiliates) cash in money of the United States that at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts, sufficient to pay all amounts due and owing on

42


 

all Outstanding Notes (other than Notes replaced pursuant to Section 306 of the Indenture) on the Maturity Date, Redemption Date, Special Mandatory Redemption Date or Change of Control Payment Date, as the case may be; (b) the Company pays to the Trustee or Paying Agent all other sums payable hereunder by the Company; (c) no Default or Event of Default with respect to the Notes shall exist on the date of such deposit; (d) such deposit will not result in a breach or violation of, or constitute a Default or Event of Default under, this Second Supplemental Indenture or any other agreement or instrument of which the Company is a party or by which the Company is bound; and (e) the Company shall have delivered to the Trustee an Officers’ Certificate and Opinion of Counsel, each stating that all conditions precedent provided for in this Second Supplemental Indenture relating to the termination of the obligations of the Company hereunder have been complied with provided, however, that (i) Sections 303, 304, 305, 306, 308, 309, 606, 607, 610, 611, 1002 and 1003 of the Indenture, and (ii) Sections 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 of the Second Supplemental Indenture and Articles I and X of the Second Supplemental Indenture and (iii) the rights, powers, trusts, duties and immunities of the Trustee under the Indenture and the Second Supplemental Indenture shall survive any discharge of obligations pursuant to this Section 10.1 until such time as the Notes have been paid in full and there are no Notes Outstanding.
          SECTION 10.2. Repayment to Company.
          The Trustee and the Paying Agent shall promptly notify the Company of, and pay to the Company upon the request of the Company, any excess money held by them at any time. The Trustee or the Paying Agent, as the case may be, shall provide written notice to the Company of any money that has been held by it and has, for a period of two years, remained unclaimed for the payment of the principal of, or any accrued and unpaid interest on, the Notes. The Trustee and the Paying Agent shall pay to the Company upon the written request of the Company any money held by them for the payment of the principal of, premium, if any, or any accrued and unpaid interest on, the Notes that remains unclaimed for two years; provided, however, that the Trustee or such Paying Agent, before being required to make any such repayment, shall (in no event later than five days after the Company requests repayment pursuant to this Section 10.2), at the expense of the Company, cause to be published once in a newspaper of general circulation in the City of New York or cause to be mailed to each Holder, notice stating that such money remains unclaimed and that, after a date specified therein, which shall not be less than 30 days from the date of such publication or mailing, any unclaimed balance of such money then remaining will be repaid to the Company. After payment to the Company, Holders entitled to the money must look to the Company for payment as general creditors, subject to applicable law, and all liability of the Trustee and the Paying Agent with respect to such money and payment shall, subject to applicable law, cease.
          SECTION 10.3. Amendment to Section 1302; Survival of Provisions of Second Supplemental Indenture upon Defeasance.
          Section 1302 of the Indenture is hereby amended to delete all of the words following the colon and the words “hereunder:” in the second sentence of Section 1302 and to replace them with the following words “(i) Sections 303, 304, 305, 306, 308, 309,

43


 

606, 607, 610, 611, 1002 and 1003 of the Indenture and (ii) the rights, powers, trusts, duties and immunities of the Trustee under the Indenture.” In addition, upon Defeasance in accordance Section 1302 of the Indenture, (i) Sections 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 of the Second Supplemental Indenture and Articles I and X of the Second Supplemental Indenture and (ii) the rights, powers, trusts, duties and immunities of the Trustee under the Second Supplemental Indenture shall survive such Defeasance.
