Each Bank severally agrees, on the terms and conditions set forth herein, to make Revolving Credit Loans to the Borrower from time to time before the Revolving Credit Maturity Date; provided that, immediately after each such Revolving Credit Loan is made, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of Revolving Credit Loans by such Bank (together with, in the case of the Swing Line Lender, the aggregate principal amount of all Swing Line Loans) plus its pro rata share of the Letter of Credit Obligations shall not exceed the amount of its Revolving Credit Commitment, provided further that the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Credit Loans, together with the aggregate principal amount of all Swing Line Loans and the Letter of Credit Obligations, at any one time outstanding shall not exceed the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments of all of the Banks at such time, provided further that, subject to the foregoing limitations, from and after the Closing Date and continuing until such date, if any, as of which the Required Banks, in their sole discretion, shall have agreed in writing that the limitation contained in this proviso shall no longer be effective (at which time the limitation in the immediately foregoing proviso shall control), the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Credit Loans, together with the aggregate principal amount of all Swing Line Loans and the Letter of Credit Obligations, at any one time outstanding shall not exceed the Revolving Credit -19- Availability. Each Revolving Credit Borrowing that is a Euro-Dollar Borrowing under this Section shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $2,500,000 or any larger multiple of $500,000 and each Revolving Credit Borrowing that is a Base Rate Borrowing under this Section shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 or any larger multiple of $500,000 (except that any such Revolving Credit Borrowing may be in the aggregate amount of the Total Unused Revolving Credit Commitments) and shall be made from the several Banks ratably in proportion to their respective Revolving Credit Commitments. Within the foregoing limits, the Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.01, repay or, to the extent permitted by Section 2.09, prepay Revolving Credit Loans and reborrow under this Section 2.01 at any time before the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. SECTION 2.02. Method of Borrowing Revolving Credit Loans. (a) The Borrower shall give the Agent notice in the form attached hereto as Exhibit I (a "Notice of Borrowing") prior to 12:00 noon (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the Domestic Business Day of each Base Rate Borrowing and at least 3 Euro-Dollar Business Days before each Euro-Dollar Borrowing, specifying: (i) the date of the Revolving Credit Borrowing, which shall be a Domestic Business Day in the case of a Base Rate Borrowing or a Euro-Dollar Business Day in the case of a Euro-Dollar Borrowing; (ii) the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Borrowing; and (iii) whether the Revolving Credit Loans comprising a Revolving Credit Borrowing are to be Base Rate Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans, and the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto, subject to the provisions of the definition of Interest Period. (b) Upon receipt of a Notice of Borrowing, the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank of the contents thereof and of such Bank's ratable share of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, and such Notice of Borrowing shall not thereafter be revocable by the Borrower. (c) Not later than 2:00 P.M. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the date of each Revolving Credit Borrowing, referenced in the Notice of Borrowing, each Bank shall (except as provided in subsection (d) of this Section) make available its ratable share of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, in Federal or other funds immediately available in Atlanta, Georgia, to the Agent at its address referred to in or specified pursuant to Section 10.01. Unless the Agent determines that any applicable condition specified in Article IV has not been satisfied, the Agent will make the funds so received from the Banks available to the Borrower at the Agent's aforesaid address. Unless the Agent receives notice from a Bank, at the Agent's address referred to in Section 10.01, no later than: (i) 4:00 P.M. (local time at such address) on the Domestic Business Day before the date of a Euro-Dollar Borrowing stating that such Bank will not make the applicable Euro-Dollar Loan in connection with such Revolving Credit Borrowing; or (ii) -20- 1:00 P.M. (local time at such address) on the Domestic Business Day of a Base Rate Borrowing stating that such Bank will not make the applicable Base Rate Loan in connection with such Revolving Credit Borrowing, the Agent shall be entitled to assume that such Bank will make the Revolving Credit Loan in connection with such Revolving Credit Borrowing and, in reliance on such assumption, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) make available such Bank's ratable share of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, to the Borrower for the account of such Bank. If the Agent makes such Bank's ratable share available to the Borrower and such Bank does not in fact make its ratable share of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, available on such date, the Agent shall be entitled to recover such Bank's ratable share from such Bank or the Borrower (and for such purpose shall be entitled to charge such amount to any account of the Borrower with the Agent), together with interest thereon for each day during the period from the date of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, until such sum shall be paid in full at a rate per annum equal to the rate at which the Agent determines that it obtained (or could have obtained) overnight Federal funds to cover such amount for each such day during such period, provided that any such payment by the Borrower of such Bank's ratable share and interest thereon shall be without prejudice to any rights that the Borrower may have against such Bank. If such Bank shall repay to the Agent such corresponding amount, such amount so repaid shall constitute such Bank's Revolving Credit Loan included in such borrowing for purposes of this Agreement. (d) If any Bank makes a new Revolving Credit Loan hereunder on a day on which the Borrower is to repay all or any part of an outstanding Revolving Credit Loan from such Bank, such Bank shall apply the proceeds of its new Revolving Credit Loan to make such repayment and only an amount equal to the difference (if any) between the amount being borrowed and the amount being repaid shall be made available by such Bank to the Agent as provided in subsection (c) of this Section, or remitted by the Borrower to the Agent as provided in Section 2.11, as the case may be. (e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, no Euro-Dollar Borrowing may be made if there shall have occurred a Default or an Event of Default, which Default or Event of Default shall not have been cured or waived in writing. (f) In the event that a Notice of Borrowing fails to specify whether the Revolving Credit Loans comprising such Revolving Credit Borrowing are to be Base Rate Loans or Euro-Dollar Loans, such Revolving Credit Loans shall be made as Base Rate Loans. If the Borrower is otherwise entitled under this Agreement to repay any Revolving Credit Loans maturing at the end of an Interest Period applicable thereto with the proceeds of a new Revolving Credit Borrowing and the Borrower fails to repay such Revolving Credit Loans using its own moneys and fails to give a Notice of Borrowing in connection with a new corresponding Revolving Credit Borrowing, a new Revolving Credit Borrowing shall be deemed to be made on the date such Revolving Credit Loans mature in an amount equal to the principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans so maturing, and the Revolving Credit Loans comprising such new Revolving Credit Borrowing shall be Base Rate Loans. (g) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, (i) there shall not be more than nine (9) different Interest Periods outstanding at the same time (for which purpose Interest Periods described in different numbered clauses of the definition of the term "Interest Period" shall be deemed to be different Interest Periods even if they are coterminous) applicable to the Revolving Credit Loans and (ii) the proceeds of any Revolving Credit Borrowing that is a Base Rate Borrowing shall be applied first to repay the unpaid principal amount of all Revolving Credit Borrowings that are Base Rate Loans (if any) outstanding immediately before such Base Rate Borrowing. -21- SECTION 2.03. Notes. (a) The Revolving Credit Loans of each Bank shall be evidenced by a single Revolving Credit Note payable to the order of such Bank for the account of its Lending Office in an amount equal to the original principal amount of such Bank's Revolving Credit Commitment. (b) The Swing Line Loans made by the Swing Line Lender to the Borrower shall be evidenced by a single Swing Line Note payable to the order of the Swing Line Lender. (c) Upon receipt of each Bank's Notes pursuant to Section 4.01, the Agent shall deliver such Notes to such Bank. Each Bank shall record, and prior to any transfer of its Notes shall endorse on the schedule forming a part thereof appropriate notations to evidence, the date, amount and maturity of, and effective interest rate for, each Revolving Credit Loan, made by it, the date and amount of each payment of principal made by the Borrower with respect thereto and whether, in the case of such Bank's Revolving Credit Note, such Revolving Credit Loan, is a Base Rate Loan or Euro-Dollar Loan, and such schedule shall constitute rebuttable presumptive evidence of the principal amount owing and unpaid on such Bank's Notes; provided that the failure of any Bank to make, or any error in making, any such recordation or endorsement shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower hereunder or under the Notes or the ability of any Bank to assign its Notes. Each Bank is hereby irrevocably authorized by the Borrower so to endorse its Notes and to attach to and make a part of any Note a continuation of any such schedule as and when required. (d) Upon receipt of (i) an affidavit of an officer of any Bank as to the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any of its Notes or any other security document held by such Bank that is not of public record and (ii) appropriate indemnification of the Borrower for any loss it may suffer with respect to any such Note or security document, and, in the case of any such loss, theft, destruction or mutilation, upon cancellation of such Note or other security document, the Borrower will issue, in lieu thereof, a replacement note or other security document in the same principal amount and otherwise of like tenor. SECTION 2.04. Maturity of Revolving Credit Loans. Each Revolving Credit Loan included in any Revolving Credit Borrowing shall mature, and the principal amount thereof shall be due and payable, on the first to occur of: (i) the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Revolving Credit Borrowing; or (ii) the Revolving Credit Maturity Date; provided, however, that the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Revolving Credit Loans at any one time outstanding shall not exceed the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments of all of the Banks at such time. SECTION 2.05. Interest Rates. (a) "Applicable Margin" shall be determined quarterly based upon the Total Leverage Ratio (calculated as of the last day of each Fiscal Quarter), as follows: -22-
If the Total Leverage Ratio is: Base Rate Loans Euro-Dollar Loans ------------------ --------------- ----------------- Greater than or equal to 4.0 to 1.0 1.25% 3.25% Greater than or equal to 3.5 to 1.0 but less than 4.0 to 1.0 1.00% 2.75% Greater than or equal to 3.0 to 1.0 but less than 3.5 to 1.0 .625% 2.375% Greater than or equal to 2.5 to 1.0 but less than 3.0 to 1.0 .375% 2.125% Less than 2.5 to 1.0 .25% 1.75%
The Applicable Margin shall be determined effective as of the date (herein, the "Rate Determination Date") which is 45 days after the last day of the Fiscal Quarter as of the end of which the Total Leverage Ratio is being determined, based on the quarterly financial statements for such Fiscal Quarter, and the Applicable Margin so determined shall remain effective from such Rate Determination Date until the date which is 45 days after the last day of the Fiscal Quarter in which such Rate Determination Date falls (which latter date shall be a new Rate Determination Date); provided that (i) for the period from and including the Closing Date to but excluding the Rate Determination Date next following the Fiscal Quarter ending June 30, 2001, the Applicable Margin shall be: (A) 1.00% for Base Rate Loans, and (B) 2.75% for Euro-Dollar Loans, (ii) in the case of any Applicable Margin determined for the fourth and final Fiscal Quarter of a Fiscal Year, the Rate Determination Date shall be the date which is 90 days after the last day of such final Fiscal Quarter and such Applicable Margin shall be determined based upon the annual audited financial statements for the Fiscal Year ended on the last day of such final Fiscal Quarter, and (iii) if on any Rate Determination Date the Borrower shall have failed to deliver to the Banks the financial statements required to be delivered pursuant to Section 6.01(a) or 6.01(b) with respect to the Fiscal Year or Fiscal Quarter most recently ended prior to such Rate Determination Date, then for the period beginning on such Rate Determination Date and ending on the earlier of (A) the date on which the Borrower shall deliver to the Banks the financial statements to be delivered pursuant to Section 6.01(b) with respect to such Fiscal Quarter or any subsequent Fiscal Quarter, or (B) the date on which the Borrower shall deliver to the Banks annual financial statements required to be delivered pursuant to Section 6.01(a) with respect to the Fiscal Year which includes such Fiscal Quarter or any subsequent Fiscal Year, the Applicable Margin shall be determined as if the Total Leverage Ratio was greater than 4.0 to 1.0 at all times during such period. Any change in the Applicable Margin on any Rate Determination Date shall result in a corresponding change, effective on and as of such Rate Determination Date, in the interest rate applicable to each Revolving Credit Loan outstanding on such Rate Determination Date; provided that (i) for Euro-Dollar Loans, changes in the Applicable Margin shall only be effective for Interest Periods commencing on or after such Rate Determination Date, and (ii) no Applicable Margin shall be decreased pursuant to this Section 2.05(a) if a Default is in existence on such Rate Determination Date, unless and until such Default shall have been cured or waived in writing. (b) Each Revolving Credit Loan that is a Base Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day from the date such Base Rate Loan is made until it becomes due, at a rate per annum equal to the -23- Base Rate for such day plus the Applicable Margin. Such interest shall be payable for each Interest Period on the last day thereof. Any overdue principal of and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, overdue interest on any Base Rate Loan (excluding a Swing Line Loan) shall bear interest, payable on demand, for each day until paid in full at a rate per annum equal to the Default Rate. (c) Each Revolving Credit Loan that is a Euro-Dollar Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for the Interest Period applicable thereto, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Applicable Margin plus the applicable Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate for such Interest Period; provided that if any Euro-Dollar Loan shall, as a result of clause (1)(c) of the definition of Interest Period, have an Interest Period of less than one month, such Euro-Dollar Loan shall bear interest during such Interest Period at the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans during such period. Such interest shall be payable for each Interest Period on the last day thereof and, if such Interest Period is longer than 3 months, at intervals of 3 months after the first day thereof. Any overdue principal of and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, overdue interest on any Euro-Dollar Loan shall bear interest, payable on demand, for each day until paid in full at a rate per annum equal to the Default Rate. The "Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate" applicable to any Interest Period means a rate per annum equal to the quotient obtained (rounded upward, if necessary, to the next higher 1/100th of 1%) by dividing (i) the applicable London Interbank Offered Rate for such Interest Period by (ii) 1.00 minus the Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage. The "London Interbank Offered Rate" applicable to any Euro-Dollar Loan means for the Interest Period of such Euro-Dollar Loan the rate per annum determined on the basis of the rate for deposits in Dollars of amounts equal or comparable to the principal amount of such Euro-Dollar Loan offered for a term comparable to such Interest Period, which rate appears on the display designated as Page "3750" of the Telerate Service (or such other page as may replace Page 3750 of that service or such other service or services as may be nominated by the British Banker's Association for the purpose of displaying London Interbank Offered Rates for U.S. dollar deposits) determined as of 1:00 p.m. New York City time, 2 Euro-Dollar Business Days prior to the first day of such Interest Period. "Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage" means for any day that percentage (expressed as a decimal) which is in effect on such day, as prescribed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor) for determining the maximum reserve requirement for a member bank of the Federal Reserve System in respect of "Eurocurrency liabilities" (or in respect of any other category of liabilities which includes deposits by reference to which the interest rate on Euro-Dollar Loans is determined or any category of extensions of credit or other assets which includes loans by a non-United States office of any Bank to United States residents). The Adjusted London Interbank Offered Rate shall be adjusted automatically on and as of the effective date of any change in the Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage. (d) The Agent shall determine each interest rate applicable to the Swing Line Loans and Revolving Credit Loans hereunder. The Agent shall give prompt notice to the Borrower and the Banks by telecopy of each rate of interest so determined, and its determination thereof shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. (e) After the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, the principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans (excluding any Swing Line Loans) -24- (and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, all accrued interest thereon) may, at the election of the Required Banks, bear interest at the Default Rate; provided, however, that automatically whether or not the Required Banks elect to do so, any overdue principal of and, to the extent permitted by law, overdue interest on any Revolving Credit Loan (excluding any Swing Line Loan) shall bear interest payable on demand, for each day until paid at a rate per annum equal to the Default Rate. After the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, the principal amount of the Swing Line Loans (and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, all accrued interest thereon) may, at the election of the Swing Line Lender, bear interest at the Default Rate. (f) Each Swing Line Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for the Interest Period applicable thereto, at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate. Such interest shall be payable for such Interest Period on the last day thereof. Any overdue principal of and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, overdue interest on the Swing Line Loans may, at the election of the Swing Line Lender, bear interest, payable on demand, for each day until paid at a rate per annum equal to the Default Rate. SECTION 2.06. Fees. (a) The Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the ratable account of each Bank a commitment fee equal to the product of: (i) the aggregate of the daily average amounts of such Banks' Unused Revolving Credit Commitments during the applicable period, times (ii) a per annum percentage equal to the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate. Such commitment fee shall accrue from and including the Closing Date to and including the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. Commitment fees shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the first Commitment Fee Payment Date following each Commitment Fee Determination Date and on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date; provided that should the Revolving Credit Commitments be terminated at any time prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date for any reason, the entire accrued and unpaid commitment fee through the date of termination shall be paid on the date of such termination. The "Applicable Commitment Fee Rate" shall be determined quarterly based upon the Total Leverage Ratio (calculated as of the last day of each Fiscal Quarter), as follows:
If the Total Leverage Ratio is: Applicable Commitment Fee Rate ------------------------------- ------------------------------ Greater than or equal to 4.0 to 1.0 .625% Greater than or equal to 3.5 to 1.0 but less than 4.0 to 1.0 .625% Greater than or equal to 3.0 to 1.0 but less than 3.5 to 1.0 .525% Greater than or equal to 2.5 to 1.0 but less than 3.0 to 1.0 .425% Less than 2.5 to 1.0 .375%
The Applicable Commitment Fee Rate shall be determined effective as of the date (herein, the "Commitment Fee Determination Date") which is 45 days after the last day of the Fiscal Quarter as of the end of which the Total Leverage Ratio -25- is being determined, based on the quarterly financial statements for such Fiscal Quarter, and the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate so determined shall remain effective from such Commitment Fee Determination Date until the date which is 45 days after the last day of the Fiscal Quarter in which such Commitment Fee Determination Date falls (which latter date shall be a new Commitment Fee Determination Date); provided that (i) for the period from and including the Closing Date to but excluding the Commitment Fee Determination Date next following the Fiscal Quarter ending June 30, 2001, the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate shall be: 0.625%; (ii) in the case of any Applicable Commitment Fee Rate determined for the fourth and final Fiscal Quarter of a Fiscal Year, the Commitment Fee Determination Date shall be the date which is 90 days after the last day of such final Fiscal Quarter and such Applicable Commitment Fee Rate shall be determined based upon the annual audited financial statements for the Fiscal Year ended on the last day of such final Fiscal Quarter, and (iii) if on any Commitment Fee Determination Date the Borrower shall have failed to deliver to the Banks the financial statements required to be delivered pursuant to Section 6.01(a) or 6.01(b) with respect to the Fiscal Year or Fiscal Quarter most recently ended prior to such Commitment Fee Determination Date, then for the period beginning on such Commitment Fee Determination Date and ending on the earlier of (A) the date on which the Borrower shall deliver to the Banks the financial statements to be delivered pursuant to Section 6.01(b) with respect to such Fiscal Quarter or any subsequent Fiscal Quarter, and (B) the date on which the Borrower shall deliver to the Banks annual financial statements required to be delivered pursuant to Section 6.01(a) with respect to the Fiscal Year which includes such Fiscal Quarter or any subsequent Fiscal Year, the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate shall be determined as if the Total Leverage Ratio was greater than 4.0 to 1.0 at all times during such period; provided that the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate shall not be decreased pursuant to this Section 2.06(a) if a Default is in existence on the related Commitment Fee Determination Date, unless and until such Default shall have been cured or waived in writing. (b) The Borrower shall pay to the Agent, for the account and sole benefit of the Agent, such fees and other amounts at such times as set forth in the Agent's Letter Agreement. SECTION 2.07. Optional Termination or Reduction of Revolving Credit Commitments. The Borrower may, upon at least 3 Domestic Business Days' notice to the Agent, terminate at any time, or proportionately reduce from time to time by an aggregate amount of at least $5,000,000 or any larger multiple of $1,000,000, the Revolving Credit Commitments; provided, however, no such termination or reduction shall be in an amount greater than the Total Unused Revolving Credit Commitments on the date of such termination or reduction after giving effect to any repayment or prepayment made on such date. If the Revolving Credit Commitments are terminated in their entirety, all accrued fees (as provided under Section 2.06(a)) shall be payable on the effective date of such termination. SECTION 2.08. Mandatory Reduction and Termination of Commitments. (a) Revolving Credit Commitments. The Revolving Credit Commitments shall terminate on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date and any Revolving Credit Loan then outstanding (together with accrued interest thereon) shall be due and payable in full on such date. (b) Additional Reductions to Revolving Credit Commitments. (1) On each occasion that the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries shall issue any Stock, the Borrower shall immediately give the notice required by Section 2.08(c) on the date of such issuance and on the date which is three -26- Euro-Dollar Business Days after the date of the Borrower's or Subsidiary's, as the case may be, receipt of the Net Proceeds of Stock, the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be automatically reduced, in accordance with Section 2.08(b)(4), in an amount equal to 100% of the Net Proceeds of Stock. (2) In the event and on each occasion of a sale, lease, transfer or other disposition by the Borrower or any Subsidiary of any real or personal property (including, without limitation, the sale or other transfer of Securitization Assets and the sale, lease, transfer or other disposition of assets pursuant to a Sale/Leaseback Transaction) resulting in Net Disposition Proceeds that, when aggregated with all other Net Disposition Proceeds received by the Borrower or any Subsidiary since the Closing Date, are in excess of $2,500,000 (the "Disposition Threshold"), then simultaneously with each such sale, lease, transfer or other disposition, the Borrower shall immediately give the notice required by Section 2.08(c), and on the date which is three Euro-Dollar Business Days after the date of receipt of such Net Disposition Proceeds, the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be automatically reduced in accordance with Section 2.08(b)(4) in an amount equal to 100% of the Net Disposition Proceeds to the extent such Net Disposition Proceeds are in excess of the Disposition Threshold and the Revolving Credit Availability shall be reduced in an amount equal to the product of (i) the amount of such reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments multiplied by (ii) .742. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Revolving Credit Commitments and Revolving Credit Availability shall not be reduced pursuant to this Section 2.08(b)(2) by the proceeds from the sale, lease, transfer or other disposition by the Borrower or any Subsidiary of (A) any real or personal property resulting in Net Disposition Proceeds in an amount less than $1,000,000, (B) the Tapsco manufacturing/composition facility in Akron, Pennsylvania or (C) the warehouse facility on Manheim Pike in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, so long as an amount equal to the Net Disposition Proceeds of any disposition described in clauses (A), (B) or (C) are invested in manufacturing and production fixed assets within 90 days of receipt. The Borrower covenants and agrees that: (1) 100% of the gross proceeds payable to the Borrower or any Subsidiary in connection with any sale or other transfer of Securitization Assets shall be in cash or a Cash Equivalent or an increase in the principal balance of a Purchase Money Note; and (2) no less than 80% of the gross proceeds payable to the Borrower or any Subsidiary in connection with any sale, lease, transfer or other disposition of any real or personal property which is not permitted under Section 6.13 (but has been approved by the Required Banks) shall be in cash or a Cash Equivalent and received at the time of such disposition. (3) In the event there shall occur any casualty or condemnation with respect to any real or personal property of the Borrower or its Subsidiaries and if pursuant to Section 6.28 the proceeds arising from such casualty or condemnation are required to be used to reduce the Revolving Credit Commitments, then the Borrower shall immediately give the notice required by Section 2.08(c), and not more than three Euro-Dollar Business Days after such notice, the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be automatically reduced, in accordance with Section 2.08(b)(4) in an amount equal to 100% of such proceeds with a simultaneous pro rata reduction to the Revolving Credit Availability as provided in Section 2.08(b)(2). (4) Any reduction to the Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to Section 2.08(b) shall be applied to reduce the Revolving Credit Commitments of the several Banks ratably. No mandatory reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to any paragraph of this Section 2.08(b) shall reduce the amount of any subsequent mandatory reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to such paragraph or any other paragraph of this Section 2.08(b). -27- (c) The Borrower shall give the Agent written notice of any mandatory reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments to be made pursuant to paragraph (1), (2) or (3) of Section 2.08(b), specifying the date of such reduction, the amount of such reduction and that such reduction is being made pursuant to Section 2.08(b) (and specifying the paragraph of Section 2.08(b) pursuant to which such reduction is being made). Any such notice is irrevocable, once given. Any and all reductions to the Revolving Credit Commitments under this Agreement shall be permanent and irrevocable. SECTION 2.09. Optional Prepayments of Revolving Credit Loans. (a) The Borrower may, upon at least 1 Domestic Business Day's notice to the Agent, prepay any Revolving Credit Loan that is a Base Rate Borrowing (excluding a Swing Line Loan) in whole at any time, or from time to time in part in amounts aggregating at least $2,000,000 or any larger multiple of $1,000,000, by paying the principal amount to be prepaid together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment. Each such optional prepayment shall be applied to prepay ratably the Revolving Credit Loans of the several Banks included in such Base Rate Borrowing; provided that except as provided in and subject to the terms of Section 2.08(b) and (c), such prepayment shall be applied as directed by the Borrower. (b) Except as provided in Section 9.02, the Borrower may not prepay all or any portion of the principal amount of any Euro-Dollar Loan prior to the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto, unless such prepayment is accompanied by the amount due with respect thereto under Section 9.05(a). (c) The Borrower may prepay any Swing Line Loan in whole at any time, or from time to time in part in amounts aggregating at least $100,000 or any larger multiple thereof by paying the principal amount to be prepaid together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment. (d) Upon receipt of a notice of prepayment pursuant to this Section, the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank of the contents thereof and of such Bank's ratable share of such prepayment and such notice shall not thereafter be revocable by the Borrower. SECTION 2.10. Mandatory Prepayments. On each date on which the Revolving Credit Commitments are reduced or terminated pursuant to Section 2.07 or Section 2.08, the Borrower shall repay or prepay such principal amount of the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans, if any (together with interest accrued thereon and any amounts due under Section 9.05(a)), as may be necessary so that after such payment the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans does not exceed the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments as then reduced. Each such payment or prepayment shall be applied to repay or prepay ratably the Revolving Credit Loans of the several Banks. SECTION 2.11. General Provisions as to Payments. (a) The Borrower shall make each payment of principal of, and interest on, the Swing Line Loans and Revolving Credit Loans and of Reimbursement Obligations and commitment fees hereunder, not later than 12:00 noon (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the date when due, in Federal or other funds immediately available in Atlanta, Georgia, to the Agent at its address referred to in Section 10.01, and any such payment to the Agent in accordance with this Section 2.11 shall satisfy in full the Borrower's obligation to make such payment hereunder and under the -28- Notes. The Agent will promptly distribute to each Bank its ratable share of each such payment received by the Agent for the account of the Banks. (b) Whenever any payment of principal of, or interest on, the Base Rate Loans or of Reimbursement Obligations or fees shall be due on a day which is not a Domestic Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Domestic Business Day. Whenever any payment of principal of, or interest on, the Euro-Dollar Loans shall be due on a day which is not a Euro-Dollar Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Euro-Dollar Business Day unless such Euro-Dollar Business Day falls in another calendar month, in which case the date for payment thereof shall be the next preceding Euro-Dollar Business Day. If the date for any payment of principal is extended by operation of law or otherwise, interest thereon shall be payable for such extended time. (c) All payments of principal, interest and fees and all other amounts to be made by the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement with respect to any Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan, Reimbursement Obligation or fee relating thereto shall be paid without deduction for, and free from, any tax, imposts, levies, duties, deductions, or withholdings of any nature now or at anytime hereafter imposed by any governmental authority or by any taxing authority thereof or therein excluding in the case of each Bank, (i) taxes imposed on or measured by its net income, (ii) franchise taxes imposed on it, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Bank is organized or any political subdivision thereof, and (iii) taxes imposed on its income, and franchise taxes imposed on it, by the jurisdiction of such Bank's applicable Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof (all such non-excluded taxes, imposts, levies, duties, deductions or withholdings of any nature being "Taxes"). In the event that the Borrower is required by applicable law to make any such withholding or deduction of Taxes with respect to any Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan, Reimbursement Obligation or fee or other amount, promptly after receiving notice thereof, the Borrower shall pay such deduction or withholding to the applicable taxing authority, shall promptly furnish to any Bank in respect of which such deduction or withholding is made all receipts and other documents evidencing such payment and shall pay to such Bank additional amounts as may be necessary in order that the amount received by such Bank after the required withholding or other payment shall equal the amount such Bank would have received had no such withholding or other payment been made. If no withholding or deduction of Taxes are payable in respect of any Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan, Reimbursement Obligation or fee relating thereto, upon the request of any Bank having a reasonable belief or concern that such Bank may be subject to Taxes, the Borrower shall furnish, at such Bank's request, a certificate from each applicable taxing authority or an opinion of counsel acceptable to such Bank, in either case stating that such payments are exempt from or not subject to withholding or deduction of Taxes. If the Borrower fails to provide such original or certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment of Taxes or certificate(s) or opinion of counsel of exemption, the Borrower hereby agrees to compensate such Bank for, and indemnify it with respect to, the tax consequences of the Borrower's failure to provide evidence of tax payments or tax exemption. In the event any Bank receives a refund of any Taxes paid by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.11, it will pay to the Borrower the amount of such refund promptly upon receipt thereof; provided, however, if at any time thereafter it is required to return such refund, the Borrower shall promptly repay to it the amount of such refund. Each Bank organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States or any state thereof shall deliver to the Borrower, with a copy to -29- the Agent, on the Closing Date or concurrently with the delivery of the relevant Assignment and Acceptance, as applicable, (i) two United States Internal Revenue Service Forms 4224 or Forms 1001, as applicable (or successor forms) properly completed and certifying in each case that such Bank is entitled to a complete exemption from withholding or deduction for or on account of any United States federal income taxes, and (ii) an Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 or W-9 or successor applicable form, as the case may be, to establish an exemption from United States backup withholding taxes. Each such Bank further agrees to deliver to the Borrower, with a copy to the Agent, a Form 1001 or 4224 and Form W-8 or W-9, or successor applicable forms or manner of certification, as the case may be, on or before the date that any such form expires or becomes obsolete or after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form previously delivered by it to the Borrower, certifying in the case of a Form 1001 or 4224 that such Bank is entitled to receive payments under this Agreement without deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes (unless in any such case an event (including without limitation any change in treaty, law or regulation) has occurred prior to the date on which any such delivery would otherwise be required which renders such forms inapplicable or the exemption to which such forms relate unavailable and such Bank notifies the Borrower and the Agent that it is not entitled to receive payments without deduction or withholding of United States federal income taxes) and, in the case of a Form W-8 or W-9, establishing an exemption from United States backup withhold tax. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrower hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Borrower contained in this Section 2.11 shall be applicable with respect to any Participant, Assignee or other Transferee, and any calculations required by such provisions (i) shall be made based upon the circumstances of such Participant, Assignee or other Transferee, and (ii) constitute a continuing agreement and shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment in full or cancellation of the Notes. SECTION 2.12. Computation of Interest and Fees. Interest on Base Rate Loans shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). Interest on Euro-Dollar Loans shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and paid for the actual number of days elapsed, calculated as to each Interest Period from and including the first day thereof to but excluding the last day thereof. Commitment fees and any other fees payable hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). SECTION 2.13. Swing Line Loans. (a) The Borrower may prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date, as set forth in this Section, request the Swing Line Lender to make, and the Swing Line Lender prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date will make, Swing Line Loans to the Borrower, in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding, not exceeding $10,000,000, provided that: (i) there may be no more than two (2) different Interest Periods for Swing Line Loans outstanding at the same time; (ii) the aggregate principal amount of all Swing Line Loans, together with the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all outstanding -30- Revolving Credit Loans and Letter of Credit Obligations, at any one time outstanding shall not at any one time exceed the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments of all of the Banks at such time or the Revolving Credit Availability in effect at such time; and (iii) the aggregate principal amount of all Swing Line Loans, together with all outstanding Revolving Credit Loans made by the Swing Line Lender plus its pro rata share of the Letter of Credit Obligations, at any one time outstanding shall not exceed the Revolving Credit Commitment of the Swing Line Lender. (b) When the Borrower wishes to request a Swing Line Loan, it shall give the Agent notice substantially in the form of Exhibit O hereto (a "Swing Line Loan Request") so as to be received no later than 12:00 noon (Atlanta, Georgia time) on or before the date of the proposed Swing Line Borrowing proposed therein (or such other time and date as the Borrower and the Swing Line Lender may agree), specifying: (i) the proposed date of such Swing Line Borrowing, which shall be a Domestic Business Day (the "Borrowing Date"); (ii) the aggregate amount of such Swing Line Borrowing, which shall be at least $1,000,000 (or in larger multiples of $100,000) but shall not cause the limits specified in Section 2.13(a) to be violated; and (iii) the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto, which shall be 1 to 14 days. The Borrower may request Swing Line Loans for up to two (2) different Interest Periods in a single Swing Line Loan Request; provided that the request for each separate Interest Period shall be deemed to be a separate Swing Line Loan Request for a separate Swing Line Borrowing. (c) The Swing Line Lender shall make the amount of such Swing Line Loan available to the Borrower on such date by depositing the same, in immediately available funds, in an account of such Borrower maintained with the Swing Line Lender. (d) Subject to the limitations contained in this Agreement, the Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.13, prepay and reborrow under this Section 2.13 at any time before the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. Each Swing Line Loan included in any Swing Line Borrowing shall mature, and the principal amount thereof shall be due and payable, on the first to occur of: (i) the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Swing Line Borrowing; or (ii) the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. (e) At any time, upon the request of the Swing Line Lender, each Bank other than the Swing Line Lender shall, on the third Domestic Business Day after such request is made, purchase a participating interest in Swing Line Loans in an amount equal to its ratable share (based upon its respective Revolving Credit Commitment) of such Swing Line Loans. On such third Domestic Business Day, each -31- Bank will immediately transfer to the Swing Line Lender, in immediately available funds, the amount of its participation. Whenever, at any time after the Swing Line Lender has received from any such Bank its participating interest in a Swing Line Loan, the Agent receives any payment on account thereof, the Agent will distribute to such Bank its participating interest in such amount (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Bank's participating interest was outstanding and funded); provided, however, that in the event that such payment received by the Agent is required to be returned, such Bank will return to the Agent any portion thereof previously distributed by the Agent to it. Each Bank's obligation to purchase such participating interests shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including, without limitation: (i) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Bank or any other Person may have against the Swing Line Lender requesting such purchase or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or an Event of Default or the termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments, provided that no Bank shall be required to purchase a participating interest in any Swing Line Loan first advanced after the Swing Line Lender has actual knowledge of an Event of Default; (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Borrower or any other Person; (iv) any breach of this Agreement by the Borrower or any other Bank, provided that no Bank shall be required to purchase a participating interest in any Swing Line Loan, if the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Swing Line Loans exceeds $10,000,000; or (v) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. (f) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, the Swing Line Loan facility contained in this Section 2.13 shall terminate immediately upon: (i) Wachovia's removal or resignation as Agent; or (ii) termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments (whether at maturity or otherwise).

SECTION 3.04. Issuance of Letters of Credit. (a) Request for Issuance. At least two Domestic Business Days before the effective date for any Letter of Credit, the Borrower shall give the Letter of Credit Issuer a written notice containing the original signature of an authorized officer or employee of the Borrower. Such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the original face amount of the Letter of Credit requested (which original face amount shall not be less than $50,000), the effective date (which day shall be a Domestic Business Day) of issuance of such requested Letter of Credit, the date on which such requested Letter of Credit is to expire, the amount of then outstanding Letter of Credit Obligations, the purpose for which such Letter of Credit is to be issued, whether such Letter of Credit may be drawn in single or partial draws and the person for whose benefit the requested Letter of Credit is to be issued. (b) Issuance; Notice of Issuance. If the conditions set forth in Sections 3.02 and 3.03 are satisfied, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall issue the requested Letter of Credit. The Letter of Credit Issuer shall give each Bank written or telex notice in substantially the form of Exhibit P, or telephonic notice confirmed promptly thereafter in writing, of the issuance of a Letter of Credit and shall deliver to each Bank in connection with such notice a copy of the Letter of Credit issued by the Letter of Credit Issuer. (c) No Extension or Amendment. The Letter of Credit Issuer shall not extend or amend any Letter of Credit if the issuance of a new Letter of Credit having the same terms as such Letter of Credit as so amended or extended would be prohibited by Section 3.02 or Section 3.03. SECTION 3.05. Reimbursement Obligations; Duties of the Issuing Bank. (a) Reimbursement. Notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in any Letter of Credit Application Agreement: (i) the Borrower shall reimburse the Letter of Credit Issuer for drawings under a Letter of Credit issued by it no later than the earlier of (A) the time specified in such Letter of Credit Application Agreement, -33- or (B) 1 Domestic Business Day after the payment by the Letter of Credit Issuer; (ii) any Reimbursement Obligation with respect to any Letter of Credit shall bear interest from the date of the relevant drawing under the pertinent Letter of Credit until the date of payment in full thereof at a rate per annum equal to (A) prior to the date that is 3 Domestic Business Days after the date of the related payment by the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin and (B) thereafter, the Default Rate; and (iii) in order to implement the foregoing, upon the occurrence of a draw under any Letter of Credit, unless the Letter of Credit Issuer is reimbursed in accordance with Subsection (i) above, the Borrower irrevocably authorizes the Letter of Credit Issuer and the Agent to treat such nonpayment as a Notice of Borrowing in the amount of such Reimbursement Obligation and the Banks to make Base Rate Loans to Borrower in such amount regardless of whether the conditions precedent to the making of Base Rate Loans hereunder have been met. The Borrower further authorizes the Agent to credit the proceeds of such Base Rate Loan so as to immediately eliminate the liability of the Borrower for Reimbursement Obligations under such Letter of Credit. (b) Duties of the Letter of Credit Issuer. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Letter of Credit Issuer in connection with any Letter of Credit, if taken or omitted in the absence of willful misconduct or gross negligence, shall not put the Letter of Credit Issuer under any resulting liability to any Bank, or assuming that the Letter of Credit Issuer has complied with the procedures specified in Section 3.04 and such Bank has not given a notice contemplated by Section 3.06(a) that continues in full force and effect, relieve that Bank of its obligations hereunder to the Letter of Credit Issuer. In determining whether to pay under any Letter of Credit, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall have no obligation relative to the Banks, the Borrower, or any Loan Party, if applicable, other than to confirm that any documents required to have been delivered under such Letter of Credit appear to comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit. SECTION 3.06. Participations. (a) Purchase of Participations. Immediately upon issuance by the Letter of Credit Issuer of any Letter of Credit in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3.04, each Bank shall be deemed to have irrevocably and unconditionally purchased and received from the Letter of Credit Issuer, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such Bank's ratable share of the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments, in such Letter of Credit; provided, that a Letter of Credit shall not be entitled to the benefits of this Section 3.06 if the Letter of Credit Issuer shall have received written notice from any Bank on or before the Domestic Business Day immediately prior to the date of the Letter of Credit Issuer's issuance of such Letter of Credit that one or more of the conditions contained in Section 3.02 or 3.03 or Article IV is not then satisfied, and, in the event the Letter of Credit Issuer receives such a notice, it shall have no further obligation to issue any Letter of Credit until such notice is withdrawn by that Bank or until the Required Banks have effectively waived such condition in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. -34- (b) Sharing of Letter of Credit Payments. In the event that the Letter of Credit Issuer makes any payment under any Letter of Credit for which the Borrower shall not have repaid such amount to the Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to Section 3.07 or which cannot be paid by a Loan pursuant to Subsection (iii) of Section 3.05, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall promptly notify each Bank of such failure, and each Bank shall promptly and unconditionally pay to the Letter of Credit Issuer such Bank's ratable share of the amount of such payment in Dollars and in same day funds. If the Letter of Credit Issuer so notifies such Bank prior to 10:00 A.M. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on any Domestic Business Day, and otherwise on the next succeeding Domestic Business Day, such Bank shall make available to the Letter of Credit Issuer its ratable share of the amount of such payment on such Domestic Business Day in same day funds. If and to the extent such Bank shall not have so made its ratable share of the amount of such payment available to the Letter of Credit Issuer, such Bank agrees to pay to the Letter of Credit Issuer forthwith on demand such amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such payment was first due until the date such amount is paid to the Letter of Credit Issuer at the Federal Funds Rate for the first 3 days and thereafter at the Base Rate. The failure of any Bank to make available to the Letter of Credit Issuer its ratable share of any such payment shall neither relieve nor increase the obligation of any other Bank hereunder to make available to the Letter of Credit Issuer its ratable share of any payment on the date such payment is to be made. (c) Sharing of Reimbursement Obligation Payments. Whenever the Letter of Credit Issuer receives a payment on account of a Reimbursement Obligation, including any interest thereon, as to which the Letter of Credit Issuer has received any payments from the Banks pursuant to this Section 3.06, it shall promptly pay to each Bank which has funded its participating interest therein, in Dollars and in the kind of funds so received, an amount equal to such Bank's ratable share thereof. Each such payment shall be made by the Letter of Credit Issuer on the Domestic Business Day on which the funds are paid to the Letter of Credit Issuer, if received prior to 10:00 am. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on such Domestic Business Day, and otherwise on the next succeeding Domestic Business Day. (d) Documentation. Upon the request of any Bank, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall furnish to such Bank copies of any Letter of Credit, Letter of Credit Application Agreement and other documentation relating to Letters of Credit issued pursuant to this Agreement. (e) Obligations Irrevocable.

The Borrower agrees to pay to the Letter of Credit Issuer the amount of all Reimbursement Obligations, interest and other amounts payable to the Letter of Credit Issuer under or in connection with any Letter of Credit issued for the Borrower's or any Loan Party's account immediately when due, irrespective of: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents; (ii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right which the Borrower or any Loan Party may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a Letter of Credit or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such transferee may be acting), the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Agent, any Bank or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transactions; -36- (iii) any draft, certificate or any other document presented under the Letter of Credit proves to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; (iv) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of any of the Loan Documents; (v) payment by the Letter of Credit Issuer under any Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; (vi) payment by the Letter of Credit Issuer under any Letter of Credit against presentation of any draft or certificate that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, except payment resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Letter of Credit Issuer; or (vii) any other circumstances or happenings whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, except circumstances or happenings resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Letter of Credit Issuer. (b) Recovery or Avoidance of Payments. In the event any payment by or on behalf of the Borrower received by the Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to a Letter of Credit and distributed by the Letter of Credit Issuer to the Banks on account of their participations is thereafter set aside, avoided or recovered from the Letter of Credit Issuer in connection with any receivership, liquidation or bankruptcy proceeding, each Bank that received such distribution shall, upon demand by the Letter of Credit Issuer, contribute such Bank's ratable share of the amount set aside, avoided or recovered together with interest at the rate required to be paid by the Letter of Credit Issuer upon the amount required to be repaid by it. SECTION 3.08. Compensation for Letters of Credit and Letter of Credit Issuer Reporting Requirements. (a) Letter of Credit Fees. The Borrower shall pay to the Agent with respect to each Letter of Credit issued hereunder a letter of credit fee ("Letter of Credit Fee") equal to a per annum rate based upon the Applicable Margin for -37- Euro-Dollar Loans, or after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, at the election of the Required Banks, the Default Rate, multiplied by the face amount of such Letter of Credit, payable on the Domestic Business Day on which such Letter of Credit is issued or renewed. Letter of Credit Fees payable hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The Agent shall promptly remit such Letter of Credit Fees, when paid, to the Banks in accordance with their ratable shares thereof. (b) Letter of Credit Issuer Charges. The Borrower shall pay to the Letter of Credit Issuer, solely for its own account, a fronting fee due and payable on the date of issuance and the date of each renewal of each Letter of Credit issued hereunder in an amount equal to 0.125% multiplied by the face amount of each such Letter of Credit. Fronting fees shall be fully earned and non-refundable when paid. SECTION 3.09. Indemnification; Exoneration. (a) Indemnification. In addition to amounts payable as elsewhere provided in this Article III, the Borrower shall protect, indemnify, pay and save the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Agent and each Bank harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, charges and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) which the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Agent, or any Bank may incur or be subject to as a consequence of the issuance of any Letter of Credit for the Borrower's account other than as a result of its gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. (b) Assumption of Risk by Borrower. As between the Borrower, the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Agent and Banks, the Borrower assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit issued for the Borrower's or any Loan Party's account by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Agent and the Banks shall not be responsible for (i) 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 the Letters of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged, (ii) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason, (iii) failure of the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit to comply duly with conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit, (iv) 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, for errors in interpretation of technical terms, (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof, (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; and (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Agent and the Banks.

(b) The Borrower will, and will cause each of its Subsidiaries to, cause all such policies to be endorsed or otherwise amended to include a "standard" lender's loss payable endorsement, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory -53- to the Agent and the Collateral Agent, which endorsement shall provide that, from and after the Closing Date, if the insurance carrier shall have received written notice from the Agent or the Collateral Agent of the occurrence of an Event of Default, the insurance carrier shall pay all proceeds otherwise payable to the Borrower or the other Loan Parties under such policies directly to the Collateral Agent; cause all such policies to provide that neither the Borrower, the Agent, the Collateral Agent nor any other party shall be a coinsurer thereunder and to contain a "Replacement Cost Endorsement" without any deduction for depreciation, and such other provisions as the Agent or the Collateral Agent may reasonably require from time to time to protect their interests; deliver original or certified copies (or certificates evidencing the same) of all such policies to the Collateral Agent; cause each such policy to provide that it shall not be canceled, modified or not renewed (i) by reason or nonpayment of premium upon not less than 10 days' prior written notice thereof by the insurer to the Agent and the Collateral Agent giving the Agent and the Collateral Agent the right to cure defaults in the payment of premiums or (ii) for any other reason upon not less than 30 days' prior written notice thereof by the insurer to the Agent and the Collateral Agent; deliver to the Agent and the Collateral Agent, prior to the cancellation, modification or nonrenewal of any such policy of insurance, a copy of a renewal or replacement policy (or other evidence of renewal of a policy previously delivered to the Agent and the Collateral Agent) together with evidence satisfactory to the Agent and the Collateral Agent of payment of the premium therefor. (c) Notify the Agent and the Collateral Agent promptly whenever any separate insurance concurrent in form or contributing in the event of loss with that required to be maintained under this Section 6.16 or any of the Security Documents is taken out by the Borrower, and promptly deliver to the Agent and the Collateral Agent a duplicate original copy of such policy or policies. (d) In connection with the covenants set forth in this Section 6.16, it is understood and agreed that: (i) none of the Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Banks, or their respective agents or employees shall be liable for any loss or damage insured by the insurance policies required to be maintained under this Section 6.16, it being understood that (A) the Borrower and the other Loan Parties shall look solely to their insurance companies or any other parties other than the aforesaid parties for the recovery of such loss or damage and (B) such insurance companies shall have no rights of subrogation against the Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Banks, or their agents or employees. If, however, the insurance policies do not provide waiver of subrogation rights against such parties, as required above, then the Borrower hereby agrees, to the extent permitted by law, to waive its right of recovery, if any, against the Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Banks and their agents and employees; and (ii) the designation of any form, type or amount of insurance coverage by the Agent, the Collateral Agent or the Banks under this Section 6.16 shall in no event be deemed a representation, warranty or advice by the Agent, the Collateral Agent or the Banks that such insurance is adequate for the purposes of the business of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries or the protection of their properties and the Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Banks shall have the right from time to time to require the Borrower and the other Loan Parties to keep other insurance in such form and amounts the Agent, the Collateral Agent or the Banks may reasonably request, provided that such insurance shall be obtainable on commercially reasonable terms. -54- SECTION 6.17.

Subsidiaries. (a) The Borrower shall cause any Person which becomes a Significant Subsidiary after the Closing Date (other than a Receivables Subsidiary) to become a party to, and agree to be bound by the terms of, the Guaranty pursuant to an instrument in form and substance satisfactory to the Agent executed and delivered to the Collateral Agent within ten (10) Domestic Business Days after the day on which such Person became a Significant Subsidiary. The Borrower shall also cause the items specified in Section 4.01(c) and (f) to be delivered to the Collateral Agent concurrently with the instrument referred to above, modified appropriately to refer to such instrument and such Significant Subsidiary. (b) The Borrower shall, or shall cause any Subsidiary (the "Pledgor Subsidiary") to, pledge 100% of the shares of capital stock owned by the Borrower or such Pledgor Subsidiary in any Person which becomes a Significant Subsidiary or Receivables Subsidiary (to the extent the shares of capital stock of such Receivables Subsidiary may be pledged under the applicable Securitization Documents and applicable law) after the Closing Date pursuant to a pledge agreement in form and substance substantially identical to the Pledge Agreement by execution and delivery by the Borrower or such Pledgor Subsidiary to the Collateral Agent within ten (10) Domestic Business Days after the day on which such Person became a Significant Subsidiary and shall deliver to the Collateral Agent such shares of capital stock together with stock powers executed in blank. The Borrower shall also cause the items specified in Section 4.01(c) and (f) to be delivered to the Agent concurrently with the pledge agreement referred to above, modified appropriately to refer to such pledge agreement and such Significant Subsidiary. (c) Once any Subsidiary becomes a Significant Subsidiary and therefore becomes a party to the Guaranty in accordance with Section 4.01(g) or Section 6.23(a) or any shares of capital stock of such Subsidiary are pledged to the Agent in accordance with Sections 4.01(i), Section 4.01(j) or Section 6.23(b), such Subsidiary (including, without limitation, all initial Significant Subsidiaries) thereafter shall remain a party to the Guaranty and the shares of capital stock in such Subsidiary (including, without limitation, all initial Significant Subsidiaries) shall remain subject to the pledge to the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, even if such Significant Subsidiary ceases to be a Significant Subsidiary. (d) The Borrower will, and will cause the Subsidiaries to, execute any and all further documents, financing statements, agreements and instruments, and take all further action (including filing Uniform Commercial Code and other financing statements) that may be required under applicable law, or that the Agent or the Collateral Agent may reasonably request, in order to effectuate the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents and in order to grant, preserve, protect and perfect the validity and first priority of the Security Documents (subject to the existence of Liens permitted under this Agreement or any other Loan Document). The Borrower will (i) cause any subsequently acquired or organized Subsidiary to become a party to the Subsidiary Security Agreement in favor of the Collateral Agent and to enter into, if such Subsidiary owns any real property, a mortgage (or similar instrument) in substantially the form of the Mortgage, covering such real property, (ii) enter into, and cause each existing Subsidiary and Pledgor Subsidiary and such newly acquired or organized Subsidiary or Pledgor Subsidiary to enter into, the Indemnity, Subrogation and Contribution Agreement, and (iii) deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Agent and the Banks, the items specified in Sections 4.01(c) and (f), modified appropriately to refer to such Subsidiary Security Agreement, Mortgage and Indemnity, Subrogation and Contribution Agreement and such Subsidiary or Pledgor Subsidiary. In addition, from time to time, the Borrower will, at its cost and -56- expense, promptly secure the Obligations by pledging or creating, or causing to be pledged or created, perfected Liens with respect to such of its assets and properties as the Agent or the Collateral Agent shall designate (it being understood that it is the intent of the parties hereto that the Obligations shall be secured, by among other things, substantially all of the assets of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries (including assets acquired subsequent to the Closing Date)). Such Liens will be created under the Security Documents and other security agreements and other instruments and documents in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Agent and the Collateral Agent, and the Borrower shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Agent and the Collateral Agent all such instruments and documents (including legal opinions and lien searches) as the Agent and the Collateral Agent shall reasonably request to evidence compliance with this Section. The Borrower agrees to provide such evidence as the Agent and the Collateral Agent shall reasonably request as to the perfection and priority status of each such Lien. SECTION 6.24. Acquisitions.

SECTION 6.25. Subordinated Debt Documents and Seller Securities. (a) The Borrower shall not, and shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, redeem, purchase, discharge, pay, prepay or defease all or any portion of the principal or interest of the Subordinated Debt, prior to the indefeasible payment in full in cash of all Obligations, except that the Borrower may pay interest on the Subordinated Debt in accordance with the provisions of the Subordinated Debt Documents as in effect and in accordance with the terms of the Subordinated Debt Documents as approved by the Agent and the Banks pursuant to this Agreement, or as amended in accordance with the provisions of Section 6.25 so long as no Event of Default then exists. The Borrower shall not take any action in violation of the provisions of the Subordinated Debt Documents pursuant to which the indebtedness, liabilities and obligations evidenced by the Subordinated Debt Documents are subordinated and made junior to the Revolving Credit Loans, Swing Line Loans and all of the other Obligations. The Borrower shall not permit any Subsidiary to take any action which shall result in violation of the provisions of the Subordinated Debt Documents pursuant to which the indebtedness, liabilities and obligations evidenced by the Subordinated Debt Documents are subordinated and made junior to the Revolving Credit Loans, Swing Line Loans and all of the other Obligations. (b) The Borrower shall not, and shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, amend, alter or modify, or consent to or suffer any amendment, alteration or modification of, the Subordinated Debt Documents without the prior written consent of the Required Banks, if such amendment, alteration or modification adversely affects the subordination provisions thereof or imposes any more -57- onerous term or condition on the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries than is contained in such agreement, note or document as of the date hereof or is otherwise in any way adverse to the Borrower, any of its Subsidiaries or the Banks. The Borrower shall deliver to the Agent and the Banks notice and a copy of any proposed amendment, alteration or modification which, in the opinion of the Borrower, does not affect the subordination provisions of any such agreement, note or document or impose any more onerous term or condition on the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries than is contained in such agreement, note or document as of the date hereof and is not otherwise in any way adverse to the Borrower, any of its Subsidiaries or the Banks, at least 10 Domestic Business Days prior to the effective date of such proposed amendment, alteration or modification and, if at least three (3) Domestic Business Days prior to the effective date of such amendment, alteration or modification, the Requesting Banks shall deliver notice to the Agent and the Borrower stating that, in the opinion of such Requesting Banks (rendered in their sole discretion), such proposed amendment, alteration or modification requires the approval of the Required Banks, the Borrower shall not, and shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, enter into such amendment, alteration or modification without the prior written consent of the Required Banks.

SECTION 6.28. Casualty and Condemnation. (a) The Borrower will furnish to the Agent and the Banks prompt written notice of any casualty or other insured damage to any of the real property or personal property of the Borrower or any Subsidiary occurring in any Fiscal Year resulting in gross proceeds in excess of $250,000 or, when aggregated with all other casualties or damage which shall have previously occurred in such Fiscal Year, in excess of $250,000, or the commencement of any action or proceeding for the taking of any of the real property or personal property of the Borrower or any Subsidiary or any part thereof or interest therein under power of eminent domain or by condemnation or similar proceeding.

(d) If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and an event described in paragraph (a) of this Section shall have occurred, the provisions of the Mortgage affecting the damaged property shall supercede paragraphs (b) and (c) of this Section and shall control the application of such cash proceeds received or to be received.

Notice of Default. The Agent shall give notice to the Borrower of any Default under Section 7.01(c) promptly upon being requested to do so by any Bank and shall thereupon notify all the Banks thereof. -62- ARTICLE VIII THE AGENT SECTION 8.01. Appointment, Powers and Immunities. Each Bank hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Agent to act as its agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents with such powers as are specifically delegated to the Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The Agent: (a) shall have no duties or responsibilities except as expressly set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and shall not by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document be a trustee for any Bank; (b) shall not be responsible to the Banks for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or in any certificate or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by any Bank under, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or for the validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any other document referred to or provided for herein or therein or for any failure by the Borrower to perform any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder; (c) shall not be required to initiate or conduct any litigation or collection proceedings hereunder or under any other Loan Document except to the extent requested by the Required Banks, and then only on terms and conditions satisfactory to the Agent, and (d) shall not be responsible for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it hereunder or under any other Loan Document or any other document or instrument referred to or provided for herein or therein or in connection herewith or therewith, except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Agent may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact and shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in- fact selected by it with reasonable care. The provisions of this Article VIII are solely for the benefit of the Agent and the Banks, and the Borrower shall not have any rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions hereof. In performing its functions and duties under this Agreement and under the other Loan Documents, the Agent shall act solely as agent of the Banks and does not assume and shall not be deemed to have assumed any obligation (other than such obligations that are specifically described herein) towards or relationship of agency or trust with or for the Borrower. The duties of the Agent shall be ministerial and administrative in nature, and the Agent shall not have by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Bank. SECTION 8.02. Reliance by Agent. The Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any certification, notice or other communication (including any thereof by telephone, telefax, telegram or cable) believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by or on behalf of the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants or other experts selected by the Agent. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder and thereunder in accordance with instructions signed by the Required Banks, and such instructions of the Required Banks in any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all of the Banks. SECTION 8.03. Defaults. The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default (other than the non- payment of principal of or interest on the Swing Line Loans or the Revolving Credit Loans) unless the Agent has received notice from a Bank or the Borrower specifying such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a "Notice of Default". In the event that the Agent receives such a notice of the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default, the Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Banks. The Agent shall give each Bank prompt notice of -63- each non-payment of principal of or interest on the Swing Line Loans and the Revolving Credit Loans, whether or not it has received any notice of the occurrence of such non-payment. The Agent shall (subject to Section 10.05) take such action with respect to such Default or Event of Default as shall be directed by the Required Banks; provided that, unless and until the Agent shall have received such directions, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Banks. SECTION 8.04. Rights of Agent and its Affiliates as a Bank. With respect to any Swing Line Loan or Revolving Credit Loan made by Wachovia or an Affiliate of Wachovia, such Affiliate and Wachovia in their capacity as a Bank hereunder shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Bank and may exercise the same as though it were not an Affiliate of Wachovia (or in Wachovia's case, acting as the Agent), and the term "Bank" or "Banks" shall, unless the context otherwise indicates, include such Affiliate of Wachovia or Wachovia in its individual capacity. Such Affiliate and Wachovia may (without having to account therefor to any Bank) accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other business with the Borrower (and any of its Affiliates) as if they were not an Affiliate of the Agent or the Agent, respectively; and such Affiliate and Wachovia may accept fees and other consideration from the Borrower (in addition to any agency fees and arrangement fees heretofore agreed to between the Borrower and Wachovia) for services in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document or otherwise without having to account for the same to the Banks. SECTION 8.05. Indemnification. Each Bank severally agrees to indemnify the Agent, to the extent the Agent shall not have been reimbursed by the Borrower, ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of its Revolving Credit Commitment, for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, counsel fees and disbursements) or disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any other documents contemplated by or referred to herein or therein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby (excluding, unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the normal administrative costs and expenses incident to the performance of its agency duties hereunder) or the enforcement of any of the terms hereof or thereof or any such other documents; provided, however, that no Bank shall be liable for any of the foregoing to the extent they arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Agent. If any indemnity furnished to the Agent for any purpose shall, in the opinion of the Agent, be insufficient or become impaired, the Agent may call for additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against until such additional indemnity is furnished. SECTION 8.06. CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. THE AGENT SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO ANY BANK, THE BORROWER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHICH MAY BE ALLEGED AS A RESULT OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY. SECTION 8.07. Payee of Note Treated as Owner. The Agent may deem and treat the payee of any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes hereof unless and until a written notice of the assignment or transfer thereof shall have been filed with the Agent and the provisions of Section 10.07(c) have been satisfied. Any requests, authority or consent of any Person who at the time of making such -64- request or giving such authority or consent is the holder of any Note shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder, transferee or assignee of that Note or of any Note or Notes issued in exchange therefor or replacement thereof. SECTION 8.08. Non-Reliance on Agent and Other Banks. Each Bank agrees that it has, independently and without reliance on the Agent or any other Bank, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis of the Borrower and decision to enter into this Agreement and that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Bank, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own analysis and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents. The Agent shall not be required to keep itself (or any Bank) informed as to the performance or observance by the Borrower of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any other document referred to or provided for herein or therein or to inspect the properties or books of the Borrower or any other Person. Except for notices, reports and other documents and information expressly required to be furnished to the Banks by the Agent hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, the Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Bank with any credit or other information concerning the affairs, financial condition or business of the Borrower or any other Person (or any of their Affiliates) which may come into the possession of the Agent. The Borrower and each Bank acknowledges that each Bank designated as a "Documentation Agent" or "Syndication Agent" on the signature pages of this Agreement shall have no right, duty or responsibility, and shall incur no liability, under this Agreement in its capacity as a "Documentation Agent" or "Syndication Agent". SECTION 8.09. Failure to Act. Except for action expressly required of the Agent hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, the Agent shall in all cases be fully justified in failing or refusing to act hereunder and thereunder unless it shall receive further assurances to its satisfaction by the Banks of their indemnification obligations under Section 8.05 against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by the Agent by reason of taking, continuing to take, or failing to take any such action. SECTION 8.10. Resignation or Removal of Agent. Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Agent as provided below, the Agent may resign at any time by giving notice thereof to the Banks and the Borrower, and the Agent may be removed at any time with or without cause by the Required Banks. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Required Banks shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent. If no successor Agent that has been duly appointed by the Required Banks shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Agent's notice of resignation or the Required Banks' removal of the retiring Agent, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Banks, appoint a successor Agent. Any successor Agent shall be a bank which has a combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent hereunder by a successor Agent, such successor Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any retiring Agent's resignation or removal hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article VIII shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Agent hereunder. SECTION 8.11. Purchase Agreement. (a) The Banks hereby agree that until the Invested Amount (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement) and all other amounts owed under the Transaction Documents (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement) have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash in -65- accordance with the terms of the Transaction Documents, and the Purchase Agreement has terminated in accordance with its terms, the Banks will not, directly or indirectly, (A) exercise any right or remedy or take any action to enforce (including, without limitation, any right, remedy or action provided in this Agreement or any agreement or instrument executed in connection herewith) any lien or other security interest granted to the Agent or any Bank in any of the capital stock of Cadmus Receivables Corp. or any successor thereto or (B) take, obtain or hold (or permit anyone, acting on its behalf to take, obtain or hold) any assets of Cadmus Receivables Corp. or any successor thereto, whether as a result of any administrative, legal or equitable action, or, otherwise or (C) object to or contest in any administrative, legal or equitable action or proceeding (including, without limitation, any insolvency, bankruptcy, receivership, liquidation, reorganization, winding up, readjustment, composition or other similar proceeding relating to the Borrower or Cadmus Receivables Corp. or their respective, property) or object to or contest in any other manner the interests of the Agent, the Purchaser, or any Liquidity Bank (as such terms are defined in the Purchase Agreement) in the property and assets of Cadmus Receivables Corp. or (D) cause or permit Section 25 of the Pledge Agreement to be amended, modified, supplemented or deleted without the prior written consent of the Blue Ridge Agent. (b) The Blue Ridge Agent shall be a third party beneficiary with respect to this Section 8.11. (c) So long as the Capital Stock of Cadmus Receivables Corp. or any of its successors in interest is pledged to secure obligations of the Borrower hereunder, this Section 8.11 shall not be amended, modified or supplemented without the prior written consent of the Blue Ridge Agent, which consent shall be at the sole discretion of the Blue Ridge Agent, and the provisions of this Section 8.11 shall be contained in any agreement that amends and restates this Agreement. ARTICLE IX CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES; COMPENSATION SECTION 9.01. Basis for Determining Interest Rate Inadequate or Unfair. If on or prior to the first day of any Interest Period: (a) the Agent determines that deposits in Dollars (in the applicable amounts) are not being offered in the relevant market for such Interest Period, or (b) the Required Banks advise the Agent that the London Interbank Offered Rate, as determined by the Agent will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Banks of funding the relevant type of Euro-Dollar Loans for such Interest Period, the Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the Borrower and the Banks, whereupon until the Agent notifies the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligations of the Banks to make the Euro-Dollar Loans specified in such notice shall be suspended. Unless the Borrower notifies the Agent at least 2 Domestic Business Days before the date of any Euro-dollar Borrowing for which a Notice of Borrowing has previously been given that it elects not to borrow on such date, such borrowing shall instead be made as a Base Rate Borrowing. SECTION 9.02. Illegality. If, after the date hereof, the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change in any existing or future law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration -66- thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof (any such authority, bank or agency being referred to as an "Authority" and any such event being referred to as a "Change of Law"), or compliance by any Bank (or its Lending Office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any Authority shall make it unlawful or impossible for any Bank (or its Lending Office) to make, maintain or fund its Euro-Dollar Loans and such Bank shall so notify the Agent, the Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the other Banks and the Borrower, whereupon until such Bank notifies the Borrower and the Agent that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligation of such Bank to make Euro-Dollar Loans shall be suspended. Before giving any notice to the Agent pursuant to this Section, such Bank shall designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for giving such notice and will not, in the judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. If such Bank shall determine that it may not lawfully continue to maintain and fund any of its outstanding Euro-Dollar Loans to maturity and shall so specify in such notice, the Borrower shall immediately prepay in full the then outstanding principal amount of each Euro-Dollar Loan of such Bank, together with accrued interest thereon. Concurrently with prepaying each such Euro-Dollar Loan, the Borrower shall borrow a Base Rate Loan in an equal principal amount from such Bank (on which interest and principal shall be payable contemporaneously with the related Euro-Dollar Loans of the other Banks), and such Bank shall make such a Base Rate Loan. SECTION 9.03. Increased Cost and Reduced Return. (a) If after the date hereof, a Change of Law or compliance by any Bank (or its Lending Office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any Authority: (i) shall subject any Bank (or its Lending Office) to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to its Euro-Dollar Loans, its Notes, the Letters of Credit or its obligation to make Euro-Dollar Loans, or shall change the basis of taxation of payments to any Bank (or its Lending Office) of the principal of or interest on its Euro-Dollar Loans or any other amounts due under this Agreement in respect of its Euro-Dollar Loans or its obligation to make Euro-Dollar Loans (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of such Bank or its Lending Office imposed by the jurisdiction in which such Bank's principal executive office or Lending Office is located); or (ii) shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement (including, without limitation, any such requirement imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, but excluding with respect to any Euro-Dollar Loan any such requirement included in an applicable Euro-Dollar Reserve Percentage) against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Bank (or its Lending Office); or (iii) shall impose on any Bank (or its Lending Office) or on the London interbank market any other condition affecting its Euro-Dollar Loans, its Notes, the Letters of Credit or its obligation to make Euro-Dollar Loans; -67- and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Bank (or its Lending Office) of making or maintaining any Euro-Dollar Loan, permitting the issuance and maintenance of Letters of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Bank (or its Lending Office) under this Agreement or under its Notes with respect thereto, by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, then, within 15 days after demand by such Bank (with a copy to the Agent), the Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank for such increased cost or reduction. (b) If any Bank shall have determined that after the date hereof the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation regarding capital adequacy, or any change in any existing or future law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Bank (or its Lending Office) with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any Authority, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Bank's capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Bank could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration such Bank's policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, then from time to time, within 15 days after demand by such Bank, the Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank for such reduction. (c) Each Bank will promptly notify the Borrower and the Agent of any event of which it has knowledge, occurring after the date hereof, which will entitle such Bank to compensation pursuant to this Section and will designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and will not, in the judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. A certificate of any Bank claiming compensation under this Section and setting forth the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. In determining such amount, such Bank may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods. (d) The provisions of this Section 9.03 shall be applicable with respect to any Participant, Assignee or other Transferee, and any calculations required by such provisions shall be made based upon the circumstances of such Participant, Assignee or other Transferee. SECTION 9.04. Base Rate Loans Substituted for Euro-Dollar Loans. If (i) the obligation of any Bank to make or maintain Euro-Dollar Loans has been suspended pursuant to Section 9.02 or (ii) any Bank has demanded compensation under Section 9.03, and the Borrower shall, by at least 5 Euro-Dollar Business Days' prior notice to such Bank through the Agent, have elected that the provisions of this Section shall apply to such Bank, then, unless and until such Bank notifies the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension or demand for compensation no longer apply: (a) all Revolving Credit Loans which would otherwise be made by such Bank as Euro-Dollar Loans shall be made instead as Base Rate Loans (in all cases interest and principal on such Revolving Credit Loans shall be payable contemporaneously with the related Euro-Dollar Loans of the other Banks), and (b) after each of its Euro-Dollar Loans has been repaid, all payments of principal which would otherwise be applied to repay such Euro-Dollar Loans shall be applied to repay its Base Rate Loans instead. -68- In the event that the Borrower shall elect that the provisions of this Section shall apply to any Bank, the Borrower shall remain liable for, and shall pay to such Bank as provided herein, all amounts due such Bank under Section 9.03 in respect of the period preceding the date of conversion of such Bank's Revolving Credit Loans resulting from the Borrower's election. SECTION 9.05. Compensation. Upon the request of any Bank, delivered to the Borrower and the Agent, the Borrower shall pay to such Bank such amount or amounts as shall compensate such Bank for any loss, cost or expense incurred by such Bank as a result of: (a) any payment or prepayment (pursuant to Section 2.09, Section 2.10 or otherwise) of a Euro-Dollar Loan on a date other than the last day of an Interest Period for such Euro-Dollar Loan; (b) any failure by the Borrower to prepay a Euro-Dollar Loan on the date for such prepayment specified in the relevant notice of prepayment hereunder; or (c) any failure by the Borrower to borrow a Euro-Dollar Loan on the date for the Euro-Dollar Borrowing of which such Euro-Dollar Loan is a part specified in the applicable Notice of Borrowing delivered pursuant to Section 2.02; such compensation to include, without limitation, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (x) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the amount so paid or prepaid or not prepaid or borrowed for the period from the date of such payment, prepayment or failure to prepay or borrow to the last day of the then current Interest Period for such Euro-Dollar Loan (or, in the case of a failure to prepay or borrow, the Interest Period for such Euro-Dollar Loan which would have commenced on the date of such failure to prepay or borrow) at the applicable rate of interest for such Euro-Dollar Loan provided for herein over (y) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by such Bank) such Bank would have paid on deposits in Dollars of comparable amounts having terms comparable to such period placed with it by leading banks in the London interbank market. ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 10.01. Notices. All notices, requests and other communications to any party hereunder shall be in writing (including facsimile transmission or similar writing) and shall be given to such party at its address or telecopy number set forth on the signature pages hereof or such other address or telecopy number as such party may hereafter specify for the purpose by notice to each other party. Each such notice, request or other communication shall be effective (i) if given by telecopier, when such telecopy is transmitted to the telecopy number specified in this Section and the telecopy machine used by the sender provides a written confirmation that such telecopy has been so transmitted or receipt of such telecopy transmission is otherwise confirmed, (ii) if given by mail, 72 hours after such communication is deposited in the mails with first class postage prepaid, addressed as aforesaid, and (iii) if given by any other means, when delivered at the address specified in this Section; provided that notices to the Agent under Article II or Article IX shall not be effective until received. SECTION 10.02. No Waivers. No failure or delay by the Agent or any Bank in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder or under any Note or other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial -69- exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law. SECTION 10.03. Expenses; Documentary Taxes; Indemnification. (a) The Borrower shall pay (i) all out-of-pocket expenses of the Agent and the Collateral Agent, including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of special counsel for the Agent and the Collateral Agent, in connection with the preparation of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, all appraisals, surveys, title policies, environmental reports, filing and recordation fees and all other costs associated with due diligence and perfection of security interests in the Collateral, any waiver or consent hereunder or thereunder or any amendment hereof or thereof or any Default or alleged Default hereunder or thereunder and (ii) if a Default occurs, all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Agent or any Bank, including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, in connection with such Default and collection and other enforcement proceedings resulting therefrom, including out-of-pocket expenses incurred in enforcing this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

SECTION 10.04. Set-Offs; Sharing of Set-Offs. (a) The Borrower hereby grants to each Bank, as security for the full and punctual payment and performance of the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement, a continuing lien on and security interest in all deposits and other sums credited by or due from such Bank to the Borrower or subject to withdrawal by the Borrower; and regardless of the adequacy of any collateral or other means of obtaining repayment of such obligations, each Bank may at any time upon or after the occurrence of any Event of Default, and without notice to the Borrower, set off the whole or any portion or portions of any or all such deposits and other sums against such obligations, whether or not any other Person or Persons could also withdraw money therefrom. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this clause (a), the rights of setoff granted in this clause shall not be construed to include a right of setoff against any Receivables or -70- Related Assets (as such terms are defined in the Purchase Agreement) to the extent prohibited by the Purchase Agreement. (b) Each Bank agrees that if it shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, receive payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of principal and interest owing with respect to the Revolving Credit Notes held by it which is greater than the proportion received by any other Bank in respect of the aggregate amount of all principal and interest owing with respect to the Revolving Credit Note held by such other Bank, the Bank receiving such proportionately greater payment shall purchase such participations in the Revolving Credit Notes held by the other Banks owing to such other Banks, and/or such other adjustments shall be made, as may be required so that all such payments of principal and interest with respect to the Revolving Credit Notes held by the Banks owing to such other Banks shall be shared by the Banks pro rata; provided that (i) nothing in this Section shall impair the right of any Bank to exercise any right of set-off or counterclaim it may have and to apply the amount subject to such exercise to the payment of indebtedness of the Borrower other than its indebtedness under the Revolving Credit Notes, and (ii) if all or any portion of such payment received by the purchasing Bank is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Bank, such purchase from each other Bank shall be rescinded and such other Bank shall repay to the purchasing Bank the purchase price of such participation to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such other Bank's ratable share (according to the proportion of (x) the amount of such other Bank's required repayment to (y) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Bank) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Bank in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Borrower agrees, to the fullest extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any holder of a participation in a Revolving Credit Note, whether or not acquired pursuant to the foregoing arrangements, may exercise rights of set-off or counterclaim and other rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such holder of a participation were a direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation. SECTION 10.05. Amendments and Waivers. (a) Any provision of this Agreement, the Notes or any other Loan Documents may be amended or waived if, but only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and is signed by the Borrower and the Required Banks (and, if the rights or duties of the Agent are affected thereby, by the Agent); provided that no such amendment or waiver shall, unless signed by all of the Banks, (i) change the Revolving Credit Commitment of any Bank or subject any Bank to any additional obligation, (ii) change the principal of or reduce the rate of interest on any Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or the amount of any fees hereunder or the amount of the Obligations (as defined in the Guaranty) payable by any Guarantor under the Guaranty, (iii) change the date fixed for any payment of principal of or interest on any Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or any fees hereunder or any of the Obligations (as defined in the Guaranty) under the Guaranty, (iv) change the amount of principal or reduce the amount of interest or fees due on any date fixed for the payment thereof under this Agreement, the Notes or any other Loan Document, (v) change the percentage of the Revolving Credit Commitment or of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Notes, or the percentage of Banks, which shall be required for the Banks or any of them to take any action under this Section or any other provision of this Agreement or modify the definition of Required Banks, (vi) change the manner of application of any payments made under this Agreement, the Guaranty or the Notes, (vii) release or substitute all or any substantial part of the Collateral held as security for the Swing Line Loans, the Revolving Credit Loans, the Reimbursement Obligations or any of the Obligations, (viii) waive any of the conditions precedent contained in Section 4.01 or Section 4.02, or (ix) release, discharge or terminate any guaranty given -71- to support payment of the Revolving Credit Loans (including, without limitation, the Guaranty); provided further that no such amendment or waiver shall, unless signed by the Swing Line Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, change any provision of this Agreement relating to the Swing Line Loans (including without limitation Section 2.13) or the Letters of Credit, respectively. (b) The Borrower will not solicit, request or negotiate for or with respect to any proposed waiver or amendment of any of the provisions of this Agreement unless each Bank shall be informed thereof by the Borrower and shall be afforded an opportunity of considering the same and shall be supplied by the Borrower with sufficient information to enable it to make an informed decision with respect thereto. Executed or true and correct copies of any waiver or consent effected pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement shall be delivered by the Borrower to each Bank forthwith following the date on which the same shall have been executed and delivered by the requisite percentage of Banks. The Borrower will not, directly or indirectly, pay or cause to be paid any remuneration, whether by way of supplemental or additional interest, fee or otherwise, to any Bank (in its capacity as such) as consideration for or as an inducement to the entering into by such Bank of any waiver or amendment of any of the terms and provisions of this Agreement unless such remuneration is concurrently paid, on the same terms, ratably to all such Banks. SECTION 10.06. Margin Stock Collateral. Each of the Banks represents to the Agent and each of the other Banks that it in good faith is not, directly or indirectly (by negative pledge or otherwise), relying upon any Margin Stock as collateral in the extension or maintenance of the credit provided for in this Agreement. SECTION 10.07. Successors and Assigns. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns; provided that the Borrower may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights under this Agreement. (b) Any Bank may at any time sell to one or more Persons (each a "Participant") participating interests in any Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan or Reimbursement Obligation owing to such Bank, any Note held by such Bank, any Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder or any other interest of such Bank hereunder. In the event of any such sale by a Bank of a participating interest to a Participant, such Bank's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, such Bank shall remain solely responsible for the performance thereof, such Bank shall remain the holder of any such Note for all purposes under this Agreement, and the Borrower and the Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank in connection with such Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement. In no event shall a Bank that sells a participation be obligated to the Participant to take or refrain from taking any action hereunder except that such Bank may agree that it will not (except as provided below), without the consent of the Participant, agree to (i) the change of any date fixed for the payment of principal of or interest on the related Swing Line Loan, Revolving Credit Loan or Swing Line Loans or Revolving Credit Loans or Reimbursement Obligations, (ii) the change of the amount of any principal, or the reduction of any interest or fees due on any date fixed for the payment thereof with respect to the related Swing Line Loan or Revolving Credit Loan or Swing Line Loans or Revolving Credit Loans or Reimbursement Obligations, (iii) the change of the principal of the related Swing Line Loan or Revolving Credit Loan or Swing Line Loans or Revolving Credit Loans or Reimbursement Obligations, (iv) any reduction in the rate at which either interest is payable thereon or (if the Participant is entitled to any part -72- thereof) commitment fee is payable hereunder from the rate at which the Participant is entitled to receive interest or commitment fee (as the case may be) in respect of such participation, (v) the release or substitution of all or any substantial part of the Collateral held as security for the Swing Line Loans or Revolving Credit Loans or Reimbursement Obligations, or (vi) the release of any guaranty given to support payment of the Revolving Credit Loans. Each Bank selling a participating interest in any Swing Line Loan or Revolving Credit Loan, Reimbursement Obligation, Note, Revolving Credit Commitment or other interest under this Agreement shall, within 10 Domestic Business Days of such sale, provide the Borrower and the Agent with written notification stating that such sale has occurred and identifying the Participant and the interest purchased by such Participant. The Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Article IX with respect to its participation in Swing Line Loans, Letters of Credit and Revolving Credit Loans outstanding from time to time. (c) Any Bank may at any time assign to one or more banks or financial institutions (each an "Assignee") all, or a proportionate part of all, of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents, and such Assignee shall assume all such rights and obligations, pursuant to an Assignment and Acceptance in the form attached hereto as Exhibit H, executed by such Assignee, such transferor Bank and the Agent (and, in the case of (i) an Assignee that is not then a Bank or an Affiliate of a Bank; and (ii) an assignment not made during the existence of a Default or an Event of Default, by the Borrower); provided that (i) no interest may be sold by a Bank pursuant to this paragraph (c) unless the Assignee shall agree to assume ratably equivalent portions of the transferor Bank's Revolving Credit Commitment, (ii) the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitment of the assigning Bank subject to such assignment (determined as of the effective date of the assignment) shall be equal to or greater than $5,000,000, (iii) no interest may be sold by a Bank pursuant to this paragraph (c) to any Assignee that is not then a Bank or an Affiliate of a Bank without the consent of the Borrower, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, provided that the Borrower's consent shall not be necessary with respect to any assignment made during the existence of a Default or an Event of Default; and (iv) no interest may be sold by a Bank pursuant to this paragraph (c) to any Assignee that is not then a Bank or an Affiliate of a Bank, without the consent of the Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, provided, that, although the Agent's consent may not be necessary with respect to an Assignee that is then a Bank or an Affiliate of a Bank, no such assignment shall be effective until the conditions set forth in the following sentence are satisfied. Upon (A) execution of the Assignment and Acceptance by such transferor Bank, such Assignee, the Agent and (if applicable) the Borrower, (B) delivery of an executed copy of the Assignment and Acceptance to the Borrower and the Agent, (C) payment by such Assignee to such transferor Bank of an amount equal to the purchase price agreed between such transferor Bank and such Assignee, and (D) payment by the assigning Bank of a processing and recordation fee of $3,500 to the Agent, such Assignee shall for all purposes be a Bank party to this Agreement and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Bank under this Agreement to the same extent as if it were an original party hereto with a Revolving Credit Commitment as set forth in such instrument of assumption, and the transferor Bank shall be released from its obligations hereunder to a corresponding extent, and no further consent or action by the Borrower, the Banks or the Agent shall be required. Upon the consummation of any transfer to an Assignee pursuant to this paragraph (c), the transferor Bank, the Agent and the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that, if required, new Notes are issued to each of such Assignee and such transferor Bank. (d) Subject to the provisions of Section 10.08, the Borrower authorizes each Bank to disclose to any Participant, Assignee or other transferee (each a "Transferee") and any prospective Transferee any and all financial and other information in such Bank's possession concerning the Borrower which has been -73- delivered to such Bank by the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or which has been delivered to such Bank by the Borrower in connection with such Bank's credit evaluation prior to entering into this Agreement. (e) No Transferee shall be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 9.03 than the transferor Bank would have been entitled to receive with respect to the rights transferred, unless such transfer is made with the Borrower's prior written consent or by reason of the provisions of Section 9.02 or 9.03 requiring such Bank to designate a different Lending Office under certain circumstances or at a time when the circumstances giving rise to such greater payment did not exist. (f) Anything in this Section 10.07 to the contrary notwithstanding, any Bank may assign and pledge all or any portion of the Swing Line Loans, Revolving Credit Loans and/or obligations owing to it to any Federal Reserve Bank or the United States Treasury as collateral security pursuant to Regulation A of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and Operating Circular issued by such Federal Reserve Bank, provided that any payment in respect of such assigned Swing Line Loans, Revolving Credit Loans and/or obligations made by the Borrower to the assigning and/or pledging Bank in accordance with the terms of this Agreement shall satisfy the Borrower's obligations hereunder in respect of such assigned Swing Line Loans, Revolving Credit Loans and/or obligations to the extent of such payment. No such assignment shall release the assigning and/or pledging Bank from its obligations hereunder. SECTION 10.08. Confidentiality. Each Bank agrees to exercise its best efforts to keep any information delivered or made available by the Borrower to it which is clearly indicated to be confidential information, confidential from anyone other than persons employed or retained by such Bank who are or are expected to become engaged in evaluating, approving, structuring or administering the Swing Line Loans and Revolving Credit Loans; provided, however, that nothing herein shall prevent any Bank from disclosing such information (i) to any other Bank, (ii) upon the order of any court or administrative agency, (iii) upon the request or demand of any regulatory agency or authority having jurisdiction over such Bank, (iv) which has been publicly disclosed, (v) to the extent reasonably required in connection with any litigation to which the Agent, any Bank or their respective Affiliates may be a party, (vi) to the extent reasonably required in connection with the exercise of any remedy hereunder, (vii) to such Bank's legal counsel, Affiliates and independent auditors and (viii) to any actual or proposed Participant, Assignee or other Transferee of all or part of its rights hereunder which has agreed in writing to be bound by the provisions of this Section 10.08. SECTION 10.09. Representation by Banks. Each Bank hereby represents that it is a commercial lender or financial institution which makes loans in the ordinary course of its business and that it will make its Swing Line Loans and Revolving Credit Loans hereunder for its own account in the ordinary course of such business; provided, however, that, subject to Section 10.07, the disposition of the Note or Notes held by that Bank shall at all times be within its exclusive control. SECTION 10.10. Obligations Several. The obligations of each Bank hereunder are several, and no Bank shall be responsible for the obligations or commitment of any other Bank hereunder. Nothing contained in this Agreement and no action taken by the Banks pursuant hereto shall be deemed to constitute the Banks to be a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity. The amounts payable at any time hereunder to each Bank shall be a separate and independent debt, and each Bank shall be entitled to protect and enforce its rights arising out of this Agreement or any other Loan Document and it shall not be necessary for any other Bank to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose. -74- SECTION 10.11. Survival of Certain Obligations. Sections 9.03(a), 9.03(b), 9.05 and 10.03, and the obligations of the Borrower thereunder, shall survive, and shall continue to be enforceable notwithstanding the termination of this Agreement, the Revolving Credit Commitments, the Letters of Credit and the payment in full of the principal of and interest on all Swing Line Loans and Revolving Credit Loans and of the Reimbursement Obligations. SECTION 10.12. Georgia Law. This Agreement and each Note shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of Georgia. SECTION 10.13. Severability. In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement, the Notes or any of the other Loan Documents should be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein and therein shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby and shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law. SECTION 10.14. Interest. In no event shall the amount of interest due or payable hereunder or under the Notes exceed the maximum rate of interest allowed by applicable law, and in the event any such payment is inadvertently made to any Bank by the Borrower or inadvertently received by any Bank, then such excess sum shall be credited as a payment of principal, unless the Borrower shall notify such Bank in writing that it elects to have such excess sum returned forthwith. It is the express intent hereof that the Borrower not pay and the Banks not receive, directly or indirectly in any manner whatsoever, interest in excess of that which may legally be paid by the Borrower under applicable law. SECTION 10.15. Interpretation. No provision of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents shall be construed against or interpreted to the disadvantage of any party hereto by any court or other governmental or judicial authority by reason of such party having or being deemed to have structured or dictated such provision. SECTION 10.16. Consent to Jurisdiction. The Borrower (a) submits to personal jurisdiction in the State of Georgia, the courts thereof and the United States District Courts sitting therein, for the enforcement of this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents, (b) waives any and all personal rights under the law of any jurisdiction to object on any basis (including, without limitation, inconvenience of forum) to jurisdiction or venue within the State of Georgia for the purpose of litigation to enforce this Agreement, the Notes or the other Loan Documents, and (c) agrees that service of process may be made upon it in the manner prescribed in Section 10.01 for the giving of notice to the Borrower. Nothing herein contained, however, shall prevent the Agent from bringing any action or exercising any rights against any security and against the Borrower personally, and against any assets of the Borrower, within any other state or jurisdiction. SECTION 10.17. Counterparts. This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument. SECTION 10.18. Integration. This Agreement and the Loan Documents are intended by the parties as the final, complete and exclusive statement of the transactions evidenced by this Agreement and the Loan Documents. All prior or -75- contemporaneous promises, agreements and understandings, whether oral or written, are deemed to be superseded by this Agreement and the Loan Documents, and no party is relying on any promise, agreement or understanding not set forth in this Agreement or the Loan Documents.
