(b)    grant or permit any additional Liens on any asset or property to secure any Term Loan Obligations (other than any Term Loan Exclusive Real Property) unless such Obligor has granted or concurrently grants (or offered to grant with a reasonable opportunity for such Lien to be accepted) a Lien on such asset or property to secure the ABL Obligations.
To the extent any additional Liens are granted on any asset or property (other than the Term Loan Exclusive Real Property) pursuant to this Section 2.3, the priority of such additional Liens shall be determined in accordance with Section 2.1.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, unless and until the Discharge of ABL Obligations has occurred, except as expressly provided in Sections 3.1(a), 6.3(c)(1) and this Section 3.1(c), the sole right of the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party with respect to the ABL First Lien Collateral is to hold a Lien (if any) on such ABL First Lien Collateral pursuant to the applicable Term Loan Documents for the period and to the extent granted therein and to receive a share of the proceeds thereof, if any, after the Discharge of ABL Obligations has occurred.

(3)    the Term Loan Collateral Agent hereby acknowledges and agrees that no covenant, agreement or restriction contained in any Term Loan Document (other than this Agreement) shall be deemed to restrict in any way the rights and remedies of the ABL Collateral Agent or the ABL Secured Parties with respect to the enforcement of the Liens on the ABL First Lien Collateral as set forth in this Agreement and the ABL Loan Documents.

13

(f)    Nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit the receipt by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or Term Loan Secured Party of the required payments of interest, principal and other amounts owed in respect of its Term Loan Obligations, so long as such receipt is not the direct or indirect result of the exercise by Term Loan Collateral Agent or such Term Loan Secured Party of rights or remedies as a secured creditor in respect of the ABL First Lien Collateral (including set-off and recoupment) or enforcement in contravention of this Agreement of any Lien held by any of them. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to impair or otherwise adversely affect any rights or remedies the ABL Collateral Agent or the ABL Secured Parties may have against the Obligors under the ABL Loan Documents.

Access rights may apply to differing parcels of Term Loan Mortgaged Real Property at differing times (i.e. the Term Loan Collateral Agent may obtain possession of one property at a different time than it obtains possession of other properties), in which case, a differing ABL Access Period may apply to each such property. If the Term Loan Collateral Agent forecloses or otherwise sells any of such Term Loan Mortgaged Real Property, the Term Loan Collateral Agent will notify the buyer thereof of the existence of this Agreement and obtain a written acknowledgement from such buyer, in form and substance satisfactory to the ABL Collateral Agent, that the buyer is acquiring such Term Loan Mortgaged Real Property subject to the access rights of the ABL Collateral Agent under this Section 3.3.

(3)    modify (or have the effect of a modification of) the mandatory prepayment provisions of the ABL Agreement in a manner adverse in any material respect to the Term Loan Secured Parties; provided, that this clause (3) shall not prohibit any such modification requiring that proceeds of ABL First Lien Collateral be applied to repayment of the ABL Obligations; or
(4)    modify the definition of “Term” set forth in the ABL Agreement in a manner that would shorten the term or stated date of maturity of the ABL Obligations as in effect on the date hereof.

25




(b)    The Company agrees that each ABL Collateral Document and each Term Loan Collateral Document granting a security interest in any Collateral to (i) the Term Loan Collateral Agent or the Term Loan Secured Parties to secure the Term Loan Obligations or (ii) the ABL Collateral Agent or the ABL Secured Parties to secure the ABL Obligations, shall include the following language (or language to similar effect approved by both the Term Loan Collateral Agent and the ABL Collateral Agent):

(c)    The ABL Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Collateral Agent shall each use its best efforts to notify the other parties of any written amendment or modification to any ABL Loan Document or any Term Loan Document, as applicable, but the failure to do so shall not create a cause of action against the party failing to give such notice or create any claim or right on behalf of any third party or impact the effectiveness of any such amendment or modification. In connection with amendments or modifications permitted by Section 5.3, the ABL Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable shall, upon request of the other party, provide copies of all such modifications or amendments and copies of all other relevant documentation to the other Persons.
5.4    Bailees for Perfection.
(a)    The ABL Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Collateral Agent, as the case may be, each agree to hold that part of the Collateral (other than the Term Loan Exclusive Real Property) that is in its possession or control (or in the possession or control of its agents or bailees) to the extent that possession or control thereof is taken to perfect a Lien thereon under the UCC (such Collateral being the “Pledged Collateral”) as collateral agent for the ABL Secured Parties and Term Loan Secured Parties, as the case may be, and as bailee for the ABL Collateral Agent or the Term Loan Collateral Agent, as the case may be (such bailment being intended, among other things, to satisfy the requirements of Sections 8-106(d)(3), 8-301(a)(2) and 9-313(c) of the UCC), solely for the purpose of perfecting the security interest granted under the ABL Loan Documents and the Term Loan Documents, as applicable, subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 5.4.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein or in any Term Loan Document or ABL Loan Document, to the extent that (i) prior to the Discharge of ABL Obligations, any Obligor is required to deliver to the Term Loan Collateral Agent any Collateral that constitutes ABL First Lien Collateral for purposes of possession and control and is unable to do so as a result of having previously delivered such Collateral to the ABL Collateral Agent in accordance with the terms of the ABL Loan Documents, such Obligor’s obligations with respect to such delivery shall be deemed satisfied by the delivery to the ABL Collateral Agent, acting as a gratuitous bailee of the Term Loan Collateral Agent, and (ii) prior to the Discharge of Term Loan Obligations, any Obligor is required to deliver to the ABL Collateral Agent any Collateral that constitutes Term Loan First Lien Collateral for purposes of possession and control and is unable to do so as a result of having previously delivered such Collateral to the Term Loan Collateral Agent in accordance with the terms of the Term Loan Documents, such Obligor’s obligations with respect to such delivery shall be deemed satisfied by the delivery to the Term Loan Collateral Agent, acting as a gratuitous bailee of the ABL Collateral Agent.

26




(b)    No Person shall have any obligation whatsoever to any other Person to ensure that the Pledged Collateral is genuine or owned by any of the Obligors or to preserve rights or benefits of any Person except as expressly set forth in this Section 5.4.

The ABL Collateral Agent further agrees to take all other action reasonably required in connection with the Term Loan Collateral Agent obtaining a first-priority interest in such Pledged Collateral or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.
(e)    Upon the Discharge of Term Loan Obligations, except as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct or otherwise required by applicable law, the Term Loan Collateral Agent shall deliver the remaining Pledged Collateral (if any), together with any necessary endorsements without recourse and without any representation or warranty whatsoever, first, to the ABL Collateral Agent to the extent any ABL Obligations which are secured by such Pledged Collateral remain outstanding, and second, subject to any other intercreditor arrangements between the Term Loan Collateral Agent and any other Person who has a Lien on any of the Term Loan First Lien Collateral to secure any obligations owing by any Obligor to such Person, to the Company (in each case, so as to allow such Person to obtain possession or control of such Pledged Collateral). The Term Loan Collateral Agent further agrees to take all other action reasonably requested by the ABL Collateral Agent in connection with the ABL Collateral Agent obtaining a first-priority interest in such Pledged Collateral or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.

The ABL Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Collateral Agent shall promptly enter into such documents and agreements (including amendments or supplements to this Agreement) as the Company or such New Representative shall reasonably request to provide the New Representative the rights contemplated hereby, in each case consistent in all material respects with the terms of this Agreement (including entering into any collateral documentation reasonably requested in order to effectuate such successor collateral agency with respect to any Collateral). The New Representative shall agree pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement Joinder addressed to the ABL Collateral Agent, Term Loan Collateral Agent, the ABL Secured Parties, and Term Loan Secured Parties, as the case may be, to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.

If any successor ABL Collateral Agent or successor Term Loan Collateral Agent is elected or appointed pursuant to the terms of the ABL Loan Documents or the Term Loan Documents, as applicable, then such successor ABL Collateral Agent or successor Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable, shall automatically be treated as the ABL Collateral Agent or Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable, for all purposes of this Agreement. The successor ABL Collateral Agent or successor Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable, shall enter into such documents and agreements (including amendments or supplements to this Agreement) as the Company, the existing ABL Collateral Agent or the existing Term Loan Collateral Agent shall reasonably request in order to provide to the successor ABL Collateral Agent or successor Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable, the rights contemplated hereby, in each case consistent in all material respects with the terms of this Agreement. The successor ABL Collateral Agent or successor Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable, shall agree pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement Joinder addressed to the existing ABL Collateral Agent or existing Term Loan Collateral Agent, as applicable, to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
VI.    INSOLVENCY PROCEEDINGS.
6.1    Finance and Sale Issues.
(a)    Until the Discharge of ABL Obligations has occurred, if the Company or any other Obligor shall be subject to any Insolvency Proceeding and the ABL Collateral Agent shall, acting in accordance with the ABL Loan Documents, agree to permit the use of “Cash Collateral” (as such term is defined in Section 363(a) of the Bankruptcy Code), which constitutes ABL First Lien Collateral securing the ABL Obligations or to permit the Company or any other Obligor to obtain financing, whether from the ABL Secured Parties or any other Person under Section 364 of the Bankruptcy Code or any similar Bankruptcy Law (“DIP Financing”) to the extent such DIP Financing is secured solely by Liens on ABL First Lien Collateral, then the Term Loan Collateral Agent and each Term Loan Secured Party each agrees that it will raise no objection to such Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing so long as such Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing meets the following requirements: (i) it is on commercially reasonable terms, (ii) the Term Loan

28




Collateral Agent and each Term Loan Secured Party retain the right to object to any ancillary agreements or arrangements regarding the Cash Collateral use or the DIP Financing that are materially prejudicial to their interests in the Term Loan First Lien Collateral, and (iii) the terms of the DIP Financing (A) do not compel the Company to seek confirmation of a specific plan of reorganization for which all or substantially all of the material terms are set forth in the DIP Financing documentation or a related document, (B) do not expressly require the liquidation of the Collateral prior to a default under the DIP Financing documentation or Cash Collateral order, (C) if the ABL Secured Parties retain their Liens on the ABL First Lien Collateral securing the ABL Obligations, the Term Loan Collateral Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Term Loan Secured Parties, shall retain an immediately junior Lien on the ABL First Lien Collateral (to the extent such ABL Collateral is Term Loan Collateral), and (D) to the extent that the ABL Collateral Agent is granted an adequate protection lien in connection with such DIP Financing or use of Cash Collateral that constitutes ABL First Lien Collateral, the Term Loan Secured Parties also receive an adequate protection lien on the ABL First Lien Collateral with the same relative priority as set forth in this Agreement. To the extent the Liens on the ABL First Lien Collateral securing the ABL Obligations are subordinated to or pari passu with the Liens securing such DIP Financing which meets the requirements of clauses (i) through (iii) above, the Term Loan Collateral Agent will subordinate any Liens in the ABL First Lien Collateral to the Liens securing such DIP Financing, any adequate protection liens granted to the ABL Secured Parties on the ABL First Lien Collateral, and any “carve out” in favor of fees and expenses of professionals retained by the debtor(s) or creditors’ committee and fees owing to the United States Trustee, as agreed to by the ABL Collateral Agent, and will not request adequate protection or any other relief in connection therewith (except, as expressly agreed by the ABL Collateral Agent or to the extent permitted by Section 6.3) without affecting the subordination provided herein as to other ABL Obligations and Term Loan Obligations. The foregoing shall not prohibit the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party from objecting to the terms of any DIP Financing to the extent that such DIP Financing is secured by a senior or pari passu Lien on any Term Loan First Lien Collateral.
(b)    Until the Discharge of Term Loan Obligations has occurred, if the Company or any other Obligor shall be subject to any Insolvency Proceeding and the Term Loan Collateral Agent shall, acting in accordance with the Term Loan Documents, agree to permit the use of “Cash Collateral” (as such term is defined in Section 363(a) of the Bankruptcy Code), which constitutes Term Loan First Lien Collateral securing the Term Loan Obligations or to permit the Company or any other Obligor to obtain DIP Financing to the extent such DIP Financing is secured solely by Liens on Term Loan First Lien Collateral and/or the Term Loan Exclusive Real Property, then the ABL Collateral Agent and each ABL Secured Party agrees that it will raise no objection to such Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing so long as such Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing meets the following requirements: (i) it is on commercially reasonable terms, (ii) the ABL Collateral Agent and each ABL Secured Party retains the right to object to any ancillary agreements or arrangements regarding the Cash Collateral use or the DIP Financing that are materially prejudicial to their interests in the ABL Collateral, and (iii) the terms of the DIP Financing (A) do not compel the Company to seek confirmation of a specific plan of reorganization for which all or substantially all of the material terms are set forth in the DIP Financing documentation or a related document, (B) do not expressly require the liquidation of the Collateral prior to a default under the DIP Financing documentation or Cash Collateral order, (C) if the Term Loan Secured Parties retain their Liens on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral securing the Term Loan Obligations, the ABL Collateral Agent for the ratable benefit of each ABL Secured Party shall retain an immediately junior Lien on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral (to the extent such Term Loan First Lien Collateral is ABL Collateral), and (D) to the extent that the Term Loan Collateral Agent is granted an adequate protection lien in connection with such DIP Financing or use of Cash Collateral that constitutes Term Loan First Lien Collateral, the ABL Secured Parties also receive an adequate protection lien on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral with the same relative priority as set forth in this Agreement. To the extent the Liens on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral securing the Term Loan Obligations are subordinated to or pari passu with the Liens securing such DIP Financing which meets the requirements of clauses (i) through (iii) above, the ABL Collateral Agent and each ABL Secured Party will subordinate any Liens in the Term Loan First Lien Collateral to the Liens securing such DIP Financing, any adequate protection liens granted to the Term Loan Secured Parties on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral, and any “carve out” in favor of fees and expenses of professionals retained by the debtor(s) or creditors’ committee and fees owing to the United States Trustee, as agreed to by the Term Loan Collateral Agent, and will not request adequate protection or any other relief in connection therewith (except, as expressly agreed by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or to the extent permitted by Section 6.3) without affecting the subordination provided herein as to other ABL Obligations and Term Loan Obligations. The foregoing shall not prohibit the ABL Collateral Agent or any ABL Secured Party from objecting to the terms of any DIP Financing to the extent that such DIP Financing is secured by any senior or pari passu Lien on any ABL First Lien Collateral.

29




(c)    The Term Loan Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Term Loan Secured Parties, agrees that it will not oppose, and hereby consents to (i) any sale consented to by the ABL Collateral Agent of any ABL First Lien Collateral pursuant to Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision under the law applicable to any Insolvency Proceeding); provided that the order approving such sale states that the Claimholders’ respective Liens shall attach to the proceeds of such sale with the same relative priority as set forth in this Agreement and (ii) any bid by the ABL Collateral Agent on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties with respect to then outstanding ABL Obligations in connection with any such sale or any other sale or other disposition of the ABL First Lien Collateral.
(d)    The ABL Collateral Agent agrees, on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, that it will not oppose, and hereby consents to (i) any sale consented to by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party of any Term Loan First Lien Collateral pursuant to Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision under the law applicable to any Insolvency Proceeding); provided that the order approving such sale states that the Claimholders’ respective Liens shall attach to the proceeds of such sale with the same relative priority as set forth in this Agreement and (ii) any bid by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party with respect to then outstanding Term Loan Obligations in connection with any such sale or any other sale or other disposition of the Term Loan First Lien Collateral.
6.2    Relief from the Automatic Stay.
(a)    Until the Discharge of ABL Obligations has occurred, the Term Loan Collateral Agent and each Term Loan Secured Party, agrees that none of them shall seek (or support any other Person seeking) relief from the automatic stay or any other stay in any Insolvency Proceeding in respect of the ABL First Lien Collateral (other than to the extent such relief is required to exercise its rights under Section 3.3), without the prior written consent of the ABL Collateral Agent.
(b)    Until the Discharge of Term Loan Obligations has occurred, the ABL Collateral Agent, on behalf of itself and the ABL Secured Parties agrees that none of them shall seek (or support any other Person seeking) relief from the automatic stay or any other stay in any Insolvency Proceeding in respect of the Term Loan First Lien Collateral (other than to the extent such relief is required to exercise its rights under Section 3.3), without the prior written consent of the Term Loan Collateral Agent.
6.3    Adequate Protection.
(a)    The Term Loan Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Secured Parties, each agree that, prior to the Discharge of ABL Obligations, none of them shall contest (or support any other Person contesting):
(1)    any request by the ABL Collateral Agent for adequate protection with respect to the ABL First Lien Collateral; or
(2)    any objection by the ABL Collateral Agent to any motion, relief, action or proceeding based on the ABL Collateral Agent or the ABL Secured Parties claiming a lack of adequate protection with respect to the ABL First Lien Collateral.
(b)    The ABL Collateral Agent and the ABL Secured Parties, each agrees that, prior to the Discharge of Term Loan Obligations, none of them shall contest (or support any other Person contesting):
(1)    any request by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party for adequate protection with respect to the Term Loan First Lien Collateral; or
(2)    any objection by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party to any motion, relief, action or proceeding based on the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party claiming a lack of adequate protection with respect to the Term Loan Default.
(c)    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions in this Section 6.3, in any Insolvency Proceeding:

30




(1)    in the event the ABL Collateral Agent or any of the ABL Secured Parties (or any subset thereof) seeks or requests adequate protection in respect of ABL First Lien Collateral and such adequate protection is granted with respect to the ABL First Lien Collateral in the form of additional or replacement collateral (even if such collateral is not of a type which would otherwise have constituted ABL First Lien Collateral) in connection with any Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing or a superpriority claim in connection with any DIP Financing or otherwise, then the Term Loan Collateral Agent, on behalf of itself or any of the Term Loan Secured Parties, may seek or request adequate protection with respect to its interests in such ABL First Lien Collateral (if it is also Term Loan Collateral) in the form of a Lien on the same additional or replacement collateral, or a junior superpriority claim, as applicable, which Lien, or junior superpriority claim, shall be subordinated (except to the extent that such additional or replacement collateral was Term Loan First Lien Collateral (in which case the priorities established by Section 2.1 shall apply)) to the Liens or claims securing the ABL Obligations and such Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing (and all obligations relating thereto) on the same basis as the other Liens of the Term Loan Collateral Agent on ABL First Lien Collateral; and
(2)    in the event the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any of the Term Loan Secured Parties (or any subset thereof) seeks or requests adequate protection in respect of Term Loan First Lien Collateral and such adequate protection is granted with respect to the Term Loan First Lien Collateral (if it is also ABL Collateral) in the form of additional or replacement collateral (even if such collateral is not of a type which would otherwise have constituted Term Loan First Lien Collateral), in connection with any Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing or a superpriority claim in connection with any DIP Financing or otherwise, then the ABL Collateral Agent, on behalf of itself or any of the ABL Secured Parties, may seek or request adequate protection with respect to its interests in such Term Loan First Lien Collateral in the form of a Lien on the same additional or replacement collateral, or a junior superpriority claim, as applicable, which Lien or junior superpriority claim shall be subordinated (except to the extent that such additional or replacement collateral was ABL First Lien Collateral (in which case the priorities established by Section 2.1 shall apply)) to the Liens or claims securing the Term Loan Obligations and such Cash Collateral use or DIP Financing (and all obligations relating thereto) on the same basis as the other Liens of the ABL Collateral Agent on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral.
(d)    Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 6.1 or in connection with the exercise of remedies with respect to (i) the ABL First Lien Collateral, nothing herein shall limit the rights of the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party from seeking adequate protection with respect to their rights in the Term Loan First Lien Collateral in any Insolvency Proceeding (including adequate protection in the form of a cash payment, periodic cash payments or otherwise) or (ii) the Term Loan First Lien Collateral, nothing herein shall limit the rights of the ABL Collateral Agent or the ABL Secured Parties from seeking adequate protection with respect to their rights in the ABL First Lien Collateral in any Insolvency Proceeding (including adequate protection in the form of a cash payment, periodic cash payments or otherwise).
6.4    Avoidance Issues. If any ABL Secured Party or Term Loan Secured Party is required in any Insolvency Proceeding or otherwise to turn over or otherwise pay to the estate of the Company or any other Obligor any amount paid in respect of ABL Obligations or the Term Loan Obligations, as the case may be (a “Recovery”), then such ABL Secured Parties or Term Loan Secured Parties shall be entitled to a reinstatement of ABL Obligations or the Term Loan Obligations, as the case may be, with respect to all such recovered amounts. If this Agreement shall have been terminated prior to such Recovery, this Agreement shall be reinstated in full force and effect, and such prior termination shall not diminish, release, discharge, impair or otherwise affect the obligations of the parties hereto from such date of reinstatement.

31




6.5    Reorganization Securities. If, in any Insolvency Proceeding, debt obligations of the reorganized debtor secured by Liens upon any property of the reorganized debtor are distributed pursuant to a plan of reorganization or similar dispositive restructuring plan, both on account of ABL Obligations and on account of Term Loan Obligations, then, to the extent the debt obligations distributed on account of the ABL Obligations and on account of the Term Loan Obligations are secured by Liens upon the same property, the provisions of this Agreement will survive the distribution of such debt obligations pursuant to such plan and will apply with like effect to the debt obligations so distributed, to the Liens securing such debt obligations and the distribution of proceeds thereof.
6.6    Post-Petition Interest.
(a)    The Term Loan Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Secured Parties each agree that none of them shall oppose or seek to challenge any claim by the ABL Collateral Agent or any ABL Secured Party for allowance in any Insolvency Proceeding of ABL Obligations consisting of post-petition interest, fees or expenses to the extent of the value of the Lien on the ABL First Lien Collateral securing any ABL Secured Party’s claim, without regard to the existence of the Lien of the Term Loan Collateral Agent on behalf of the Term Loan Secured Parties on the ABL First Lien Collateral.
(b)    The ABL Collateral Agent and the ABL Secured Parties each agree that none of them shall oppose or seek to challenge any claim by the Term Loan Collateral Agent or any Term Loan Secured Party for allowance in any Insolvency Proceeding of Term Loan Obligations consisting of post-petition interest, fees or expenses to the extent of the value of the Lien on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral securing any Term Loan Secured Party’s claim, without regard to the existence of the Lien of the ABL Collateral Agent on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties on the Term Loan First Lien Collateral.
6.7    Waiver – 1111(b)(2) Issues.
(a)    The Term Loan Collateral Agent, for itself and/or on behalf of the Term Loan Secured Parties, waives any objection or claim it may hereafter have against any ABL Secured Party arising out of the election by any ABL Secured Party of the application of Section 1111(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code to any claims of such ABL Secured Party in respect of the ABL First Lien Collateral and agrees that in the case of any such election it shall have no claim or right to payment with respect to the ABL First Lien Collateral in or from such Insolvency Proceeding. Any reorganization securities issued with respect to such election shall be allocated solely to the ABL Secured Parties pursuant to Section 6.5 hereof.
(b)    The ABL Collateral Agent, for itself and/or on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, each waives any objection or claim it may hereafter have against any Term Loan Secured Party arising out of the election by any Term Loan Secured Party of the application of Section 1111(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code to any claims of such Term Loan Secured Party in respect of the Term Loan First Lien Collateral and agrees that in the case of any such election it shall have no claim or right to payment with respect to the Term Loan First Lien Collateral in or from such Insolvency Proceeding.

32




6.8    Separate Grants of Security and Separate Classification. The ABL Collateral Agent, on behalf each ABL Secured Party, and the Term Loan Collateral Agent, on behalf of each Term Loan Secured Party, acknowledges and agrees that (a) the grants of Liens pursuant to the ABL Loan Documents and the Term Loan Documents constitute separate and distinct grants of Liens and (b) because of, among other things, their differing rights in the Collateral, the Term Loan Obligations and the ABL Obligations are fundamentally different from each other and must be separately classified in any plan of reorganization or liquidation under the Bankruptcy Code (or other plan of similar effect under any Bankruptcy Law) proposed or adopted in an Insolvency Proceeding. To further effectuate the intent of the parties as provided in the immediately preceding sentence, if it is held that the claims of the ABL Secured Parties and the Term Loan Secured Parties in respect of the Collateral constitute only one secured claim (rather than separate classes of senior and junior secured claims), then the ABL Collateral Agent, on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, and the Term Loan Collateral Agent, on behalf of each Term Loan Secured Party, hereby acknowledge and agree that all distributions shall be made as if there were separate classes of ABL Obligation claims and Term Loan Obligation claims against the Obligors, with the effect being that, (i) to the extent that the aggregate value of the ABL First Lien Collateral is sufficient (for this purpose ignoring all claims held by the Term Loan Collateral Agent on behalf of the Term Loan Secured Parties), the ABL Collateral Agent and the ABL Secured Parties shall be entitled to receive, in addition to amounts distributed to them in respect of principal, pre-petition interest and other claims, all amounts owing in respect of post-petition interest that is available from the ABL First Lien Collateral (regardless of whether any such claims may or may not be allowed or allowable in whole or in part as against any Obligor in the applicable Insolvency Proceeding(s) pursuant to Section 506(b) of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise) before any distribution is made in respect of the claims held by the Term Loan Collateral Agent on behalf of the Term Loan Secured Parties, from such ABL First Lien Collateral, with the Term Loan Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Term Loan Secured Parties, hereby acknowledging and agreeing to turn over to the ABL Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the ABL Secured Parties, amounts otherwise received or receivable by them from such ABL First Lien Collateral to the extent necessary to effectuate the intent of this sentence, even if such turnover has the effect of reducing the aggregate recoveries of the Term Loan Secured Parties, and (ii) to the extent that the aggregate value of the Term Loan First Lien Collateral is sufficient (for this purpose ignoring all claims held by the ABL Collateral Agent on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties), the Term Loan Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Secured Parties shall be entitled to receive, in addition to amounts distributed to them in respect of principal, pre-petition interest and other claims, all amounts owing in respect of post-petition interest that is available from the Term Loan First Lien Collateral (regardless of whether any such claims may or may not be allowed or allowable in whole or in part as against any Obligor in the applicable Insolvency Proceeding(s) pursuant to Section 506(b) of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise) before any distribution is made in respect of the claims held by the ABL Collateral Agent, on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, from such Term Loan First Lien Collateral, with the ABL Collateral Agent, on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, hereby acknowledging and agreeing to turn over to the Term Loan Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Term Loan Secured Parties, amounts otherwise received or receivable by them from such Term Loan First Lien Collateral to the extent necessary to effectuate the intent of this sentence, even if such turnover has the effect of reducing the aggregate recoveries of the ABL Secured Parties.
6.9    Enforceability and Continuing Priority. This Agreement shall be applicable both before and after the commencement of any Insolvency Proceeding and all converted or succeeding cases in respect thereof. Accordingly, the provisions of this Agreement are intended to be and shall be enforceable as a subordination agreement within the meaning of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Term Loan Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Secured Parties will be entitled to manage and supervise their respective loans and extensions of credit under the Term Loan Documents in accordance with law and as they may otherwise, in their sole discretion, deem appropriate.

7.3    No Waiver of Lien Priorities.
(a)    No right of the ABL Collateral Agent, the ABL Secured Parties, the Term Loan Collateral Agent or the Term Loan Secured Parties to enforce any provision of this Agreement, any ABL Loan Document or any Term Loan Document shall at any time in any way be prejudiced or impaired by any act or failure to act on the part of the Company or any other Obligor or by any act or failure to act by such Persons or by any noncompliance by any such Person with the terms, provisions and covenants of this Agreement, any of the ABL Loan Documents or any of the Term Loan Documents, regardless of any knowledge thereof which such Persons, or any of them, may have or be otherwise charged with.
(b)    Without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing paragraph (but subject to the rights of the Company and the other Obligors under the ABL Loan Documents and Term Loan Documents and subject to the provisions of Sections 5.3 and 8.3), the ABL Collateral Agent, the ABL Secured Parties, the Term Loan Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Secured Parties may, at any time and from time to time in accordance with the ABL Loan Documents and Term Loan Documents and/or applicable law, without the consent of, or notice to, the other Persons (as the case may be), without incurring any liabilities to such Persons and without impairing or releasing the Lien priorities and other benefits provided in this Agreement (even if any right of subrogation or other right or remedy is affected, impaired or extinguished thereby) do any one or more of the following:

(4)    exercise or delay in or refrain from exercising any right or remedy against the Company or any security or any other Obligor or any other Person, elect any remedy and otherwise deal freely with the Company or any other Obligor, except, in each case, as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement.
7.4    Obligations Unconditional. All rights, interests, agreements and obligations of the ABL Collateral Agent and the ABL Secured Parties and the Term Loan Collateral Agent and the Term Loan Secured Parties, respectively, hereunder shall remain in full force and effect irrespective of:

This Agreement shall terminate and be of no further force and effect:
