Each Borrowing shall be made by an irrevocable written request by an Authorized Person delivered to Agent (which notice must be received by Agent no later than 10:00 a.m. (California time) on the Business Day prior to the date that is the requested Funding Date specifying (i) the amount of such Borrowing, and (ii) 40 the requested Funding Date, which shall be a Business Day; provided, however, that in the case of a request for Swing Loan in an amount of $1,000,000, or less, such notice will be timely received if it is received by Agent no later than 10:00 a.m. (California time) on the Business Day that is the requested Funding Date. At Agent's election, in lieu of delivering the above-described written request, any Authorized Person may give Agent telephonic notice of such request by the required time, with such telephonic notice to be confirmed in writing within 24 hours of the giving of such notice and the failure to provide such written confirmation shall not affect the validity of the request. Upon the making of any request for a Borrowing hereunder, Borrowers shall be deemed to have certified that all conditions set forth in Section 3.3 hereof have been satisfied. (b) AGENT'S ELECTION. Promptly after receipt of a request for a Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.3(a), Agent shall elect, in its discretion, (i) to have the terms of Section 2.3(c) apply to such requested Borrowing, or (ii) if the Borrowing is for an Advance, to request Swing Lender to make a Swing Loan pursuant to the terms of Section 2.3(d) in the amount of the requested Borrowing; provided, however, that if Swing Lender declines in its sole discretion to make a Swing Loan pursuant to Section 2.3(d), Agent shall elect to have the terms of Section 2.3(c) apply to such requested Borrowing. (c) MAKING OF ADVANCES. (i) In the event that Agent shall elect to have the terms of this Section 2.3(c) apply to a requested Borrowing as described in Section 2.3(b), then promptly after receipt of a request for a Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.3(a), Agent shall notify the Lenders, not later than 1:00 p.m. (California time) on the Business Day immediately preceding the Funding Date applicable thereto by telecopy, telephone, or other similar form of transmission, of the requested Borrowing. Each Lender shall make the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the requested Borrowing available to Agent in immediately available funds, to Agent's Account, not later than 10:00 a.m. (California time) on the Funding Date applicable thereto. After Agent's receipt of the proceeds of such Advances (or the Term Loan, as applicable), upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 hereof, Agent shall make the proceeds thereof available to Administrative Borrower on the applicable Funding Date by transferring immediately available funds equal to such proceeds received by Agent to Administrative Borrower's Designated Account; provided, however, that, subject to the provisions of Section 2.3(i), Agent shall not request any Lender to make, and no Lender shall have the obligation to make, any Advance (or its portion of the Term Loan) if Agent shall have actual knowledge that (1) one or more of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 will not be satisfied on the requested Funding Date for the applicable Borrowing unless such condition has been waived, or (2) the requested Borrowing would exceed the Availability on such Funding Date. (ii) Unless Agent receives notice from a Lender on or prior to the Closing Date or, with respect to any Borrowing after the Closing Date, prior to 9:00 a.m. (California time) on the date of such Borrowing, that such Lender will not make available as and when required hereunder to Agent for the account of 41 Borrowers the amount of that Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Borrowing, Agent may assume that each Lender has made or will make such amount available to Agent in immediately available funds on the Funding Date and Agent may (but shall not be so required), in reliance upon such assumption, make available to Borrowers on such date a corresponding amount. If and to the extent any Lender shall not have made its full amount available to Agent in immediately available funds and Agent in such circumstances has made available to Borrowers such amount, that Defaulting Lender shall on the Business Day following such Funding Date make such amount available to Agent, together with interest at the Defaulting Lender Rate for each day during such period. A notice submitted by Agent to any Lender with respect to amounts owing under this subsection shall be conclusive, absent manifest error. If such amount is so made available, such payment to Agent shall constitute such Lender's Advance (or portion of the Term Loan, as applicable) on the date of Borrowing for all purposes of this Agreement. If such amount is not made available to Agent on the Business Day following the Funding Date, Agent will notify Administrative Borrower of such failure to fund and, upon demand by Agent, Borrowers shall pay such amount to Agent for Agent's account, together with interest thereon for each day elapsed since the date of such Borrowing, at a rate per annum equal to the interest rate applicable at the time to the Advances (or portion of the Term Loan, as applicable) composing such Borrowing. The failure of any Lender to make any Advance (or portion of the Term Loan, as applicable) on any Funding Date shall not relieve any other Lender of any obligation hereunder to make an Advance (or portion of the Term Loan, as applicable) on such Funding Date, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make the Advance to be made by such other Lender on any Funding Date. (iii) Agent shall not be obligated to transfer to a Defaulting Lender any payments made by Borrowers to Agent for the Defaulting Lender's benefit, and, in the absence of such transfer to the Defaulting Lender, Agent shall transfer any such payments to each other non-Defaulting Lender member of the Lender Group ratably in accordance with their Commitments (but only to the extent that such Defaulting Lender's Advance was funded by the other members of the Lender Group) or, if so directed by Administrative Borrower and if no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing (and to the extent such Defaulting Lender's Advance was not funded by the Lender Group), retain the same to be re-advanced to Borrowers as if such Defaulting Lender had made Advances to Borrowers. Subject to the foregoing, Agent may hold and, in its Permitted Discretion, re-lend to Borrowers for the account of such Defaulting Lender the amount of all such payments received and retained by Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender. Solely for the purposes of voting or consenting to matters with respect to the Loan Documents, such Defaulting Lender shall be deemed not to be a "Lender" and such Lender's Commitment shall be deemed to be zero. This Section shall remain effective with respect to such Lender until (x) the Obligations under this Agreement shall have been declared or shall have become immediately due and payable, (y) the non-Defaulting Lenders, Agent, and Administrative Borrower shall have waived such 42 Defaulting Lender's default in writing, or (z) the Defaulting Lender makes its Pro Rata Share of the applicable Advance and pays to Agent all amounts owing by Defaulting Lender in respect thereof. The operation of this Section shall not be construed to increase or otherwise affect the Commitment of any Lender, to relieve or excuse the performance by such Defaulting Lender or any other Lender of its duties and obligations hereunder, or to relieve or excuse the performance by Borrowers of their duties and obligations hereunder to Agent or to the Lenders other than such Defaulting Lender. Any such failure to fund by any Defaulting Lender shall constitute a material breach by such Defaulting Lender of this Agreement and shall entitle Administrative Borrower at its option, upon written notice to Agent, to arrange for a substitute Lender to assume the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender, such substitute Lender to be acceptable to Agent. In connection with the arrangement of such a substitute Lender, the Defaulting Lender shall have no right to refuse to be replaced hereunder, and agrees to execute and deliver a completed form of Assignment and Acceptance in favor of the substitute Lender (and agrees that it shall be deemed to have executed and delivered such document if it fails to do so) subject only to being repaid its share of the outstanding Obligations (other than Bank Product Obligations) (including an assumption of its Pro Rata Share of the Risk Participation Liability) without any premium or penalty of any kind whatsoever; provided further, however, that any such assumption of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of any of the Lender Groups' or Borrowers' rights or remedies against any such Defaulting Lender arising out of or in relation to such failure to fund. (d) MAKING OF SWING LOANS. (i) In the event Agent shall elect, with the consent of Swing Lender, as a Lender, to have the terms of this Section 2.3(d) apply to a requested Borrowing as described in Section 2.3(b), Swing Lender as a Lender shall make such Advance in the amount of such Borrowing (any such Advance made solely by Swing Lender as a Lender pursuant to this Section 2.3(d) being referred to as a "Swing Loan" and such Advances being referred to collectively as "Swing Loans") available to Borrowers on the Funding Date applicable thereto by transferring immediately available funds to Administrative Borrower's Designated Account. Each Swing Loan shall be deemed to be an Advance hereunder and shall be subject to all the terms and conditions applicable to other Advances, except that no such Swing Loan shall be eligible for the LIBOR Option and all payments on any Swing Loan shall be payable to Swing Lender as a Lender solely for its own account (and for the account of the holder of any participation interest with respect to such Swing Loan). Subject to the provisions of Section 2.3(i), Agent shall not request Swing Lender, as a Lender, to make, and Swing Lender as a Lender shall not make, any Swing Loan if Agent has actual knowledge that (i) one or more of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 will not be satisfied on the requested Funding Date for the applicable Borrowing unless such condition has been waived, or (ii) the requested Borrowing would exceed the Availability on such Funding Date. Swing Lender as a Lender 43 shall not otherwise be required to determine whether the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 have been satisfied on the Funding Date applicable thereto prior to making, in its sole discretion, any Swing Loan. (ii) The Swing Loans shall be secured by the Agent's Liens, shall constitute Obligations hereunder, and shall bear interest at the rate applicable from time to time to Advances that are Base Rate Loans. (e) AGENT ADVANCES. (i) Agent is hereby authorized by Borrowers and the Lenders, from time to time in Agent's sole discretion, (1) after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or an Event of Default, or (2) at any time that any of the other applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 have not been satisfied, to make Advances to Borrowers on behalf of the Lenders that Agent, in its Permitted Discretion deems necessary or desirable (A) to preserve or protect the Collateral, or any portion thereof, (B) to enhance the likelihood of repayment of the Obligations (other than the Bank Product Obligations), or (C) to pay any other amount chargeable to Borrowers pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including Lender Group Expenses and the costs, fees, and expenses described in Section 10 (any of the Advances described in this Section 2.3(e) shall be referred to as "Agent Advances"), provided, that notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.3(e), the aggregate principal amount of Agent Advances outstanding at any one time, when taken together with the aggregate principal amount of Overadvances made in accordance with Section 2.3(i) outstanding at any time, shall not exceed an amount equal to the lesser of (x) 5.0% of the Borrowing Base then in effect and (y) $10,000,000. Each Agent Advance shall be deemed to be an Advance hereunder and shall be subject to all the terms and conditions applicable to other Advances, except that no such Agent Advance shall be eligible for the LIBOR Option and all payments thereon shall be payable to Agent solely for its own account (and for the account of the holder of any participation interest with respect to such Agent Advances). (ii) The Agent Advances shall be repayable on demand and secured by the Agent's Liens granted to Agent under the Loan Documents, shall constitute Advances and Obligations hereunder, and shall bear interest at the rate applicable from time to time to Advances that are Base Rate Loans. (f) SETTLEMENT. It is agreed that each Lender's funded portion of the Advances is intended by the Lenders to equal, at all times, such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the outstanding Advances. Such agreement notwithstanding, Agent, Swing Lender, and the other Lenders agree (which agreement shall not be for the benefit of or enforceable by Borrowers) that in order to facilitate the administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, settlement among them as to the Advances, the Swing Loans, and the Agent Advances shall take place on a periodic basis in accordance with the following provisions: 44 (i) Agent shall request settlement ("Settlement") with the Lenders on a weekly basis, or on a more frequent basis if so determined by Agent, (1) on behalf of Swing Lender, with respect to each outstanding Swing Loan, (2) for itself, with respect to each Agent Advance, and (3) with respect to Borrowers' or their Subsidiaries' Collections received, as to each by notifying the Lenders by telecopy, telephone, or other similar form of transmission, of such requested Settlement, no later than 2:00 p.m. (California time) on the Business Day immediately prior to the date of such requested Settlement (the date of such requested Settlement being the "Settlement Date"). Such notice of a Settlement Date shall include a summary statement of the amount of outstanding Advances (including Swing Loans and Agent Advances) for the period since the prior Settlement Date. Subject to the terms and conditions contained herein (including Section 2.3(c)(iii)): (y) if a Lender's balance of the Advances (including Swing Loans and Agent Advances) exceeds such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Advances (including Swing Loans and Agent Advances) as of a Settlement Date, then Agent shall, by no later than 12:00 p.m. (California time) on the Settlement Date, transfer in immediately available funds to a Deposit Account of such Lender (as such Lender may designate) an amount such that each such Lender shall, upon receipt of such amount, have as of the Settlement Date, its Pro Rata Share of the Advances (including Swing Loans and Agent Advances), and (z) if a Lender's balance of the Advances, Swing Loans, and Agent Advances is less than such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Advances (including Swing Loans and Agent Advances) as of a Settlement Date, such Lender shall no later than 12:00 p.m. (California time) on the Settlement Date transfer in immediately available funds to the Agent's Account, an amount such that each such Lender shall, upon transfer of such amount, have as of the Settlement Date, its Pro Rata Share of the Advances (including Swing Loans and Agent Advances). Such amounts made available to Agent under clause (z) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be applied against the amounts of the applicable Swing Loan or Agent Advance and, together with the portion of such Swing Loan or Agent Advance representing Swing Lender's Pro Rata Share thereof, shall constitute Advances of such Lenders. If any such amount is not made available to Agent by any Lender on the Settlement Date applicable thereto to the extent required by the terms hereof, Agent shall be entitled to recover for its account such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon at the Defaulting Lender Rate. (ii) In determining whether a Lender's balance of the Advances, Swing Loans, and Agent Advances is less than, equal to, or greater than such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Advances, Swing Loans, and Agent Advances as of a Settlement Date, Agent shall, as part of the relevant Settlement, apply to such balance the portion of payments actually received in good funds by Agent with respect to principal, interest, and fees payable by Borrowers and allocable to the Lenders hereunder, and proceeds of Collateral. To the extent that a net amount is owed to any such Lender after such application, such net amount shall be distributed by Agent to that Lender as part of such next Settlement. 45 (iii) Between Settlement Dates, Agent, to the extent no Agent Advances or Swing Loans are outstanding, may pay over to Swing Lender any payments received by Agent, that in accordance with the terms of this Agreement would be applied to the reduction of the Advances, for application to Swing Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Advances. If, as of any Settlement Date, Collections of Borrowers or their Subsidiaries received since the then immediately preceding Settlement Date have been applied to Swing Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Advances other than to Swing Loans, as provided for in the previous sentence, Swing Lender shall pay to Agent for the accounts of the Lenders, and Agent shall pay to the Lenders, to be applied to the outstanding Advances of such Lenders, an amount such that each Lender shall, upon receipt of such amount, have, as of such Settlement Date, its Pro Rata Share of the Advances. During the period between Settlement Dates, Swing Lender with respect to Swing Loans, Agent with respect to Agent Advances, and each Lender (subject to the effect of letter agreements between Agent and individual Lenders) with respect to the Advances other than Swing Loans and Agent Advances, shall be entitled to interest at the applicable rate or rates payable under this Agreement on the daily amount of funds employed by Swing Lender, Agent, or the Lenders, as applicable. (g) NOTATION. As more fully set forth in Section 2.16 and Section 14.1(h) Agent shall record on its books the principal amount of the Advances (or portion of the Term Loan, as applicable) owing to each Lender, including the Swing Loans owing to Swing Lender, and Agent Advances owing to Agent, and the interests therein of each Lender, from time to time and such records shall, absent manifest error, conclusively be presumed to be correct and accurate. In addition, each Lender is authorized, at such Lender's option, to note the date and amount of each payment or prepayment of principal of such Lender's Advances (or portion of Term Loan, as applicable) in its books and records, including computer records and such records shall, absent manifest error, conclusively be presumed to be correct and accurate. (h) LENDERS' FAILURE TO PERFORM. All Advances (other than Swing Loans and Agent Advances) shall be made by the Lenders contemporaneously and in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares. It is understood that (i) no Lender shall be responsible for any failure by any other Lender to perform its obligation to make any Advance (or other extension of credit) hereunder, nor shall any Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of any failure by any other Lender to perform its obligations hereunder, and (ii) no failure by any Lender to perform its obligations hereunder shall excuse any other Lender from its obligations hereunder. (i) OPTIONAL OVERADVANCES. Any contrary provision of this Agreement notwithstanding, the Lenders hereby authorize Agent or Swing Lender, as applicable, and Agent or Swing Lender, as applicable, may, but is not obligated to, knowingly and intentionally, continue to make Advances to Borrowers notwithstanding that an Overadvance exists or thereby would be created, so long as (i) after giving effect to such Advances, the sum of the outstanding Revolver Usage and the outstanding principal amount of the Term Loan does not exceed the Borrowing Base by an amount equal to the lesser of (x) 5.0% of the Borrowing Base and (y) $10,000,000, (ii) after giving effect to such Advances the outstanding Revolver Usage (except 46 for and excluding amounts charged to the Loan Account for interest, fees, or Lender Group Expenses) does not exceed the Maximum Revolver Amount, (iii) the aggregate principal amount of Overadvances made pursuant to this Section 2.3(i) when taken together with the aggregate principal amount of Agent Advances made pursuant to Section 2.3(e) does not exceed at any time an amount equal to the lesser of (x) 5.0% of the Borrowing Base then in effect and (y) $10,000,000, and (iv) at the time of the making of any such Advance (including a Swing Loan), Agent does not believe, in good faith, that the Overadvance created by such Advance will be outstanding for more than 90 days. The foregoing provisions are for the exclusive benefit of Agent, Swing Lender, and the Lenders and are not intended to benefit Borrowers in any way. The Advances and Swing Loans, as applicable, that are made pursuant to this Section 2.3(i) shall be subject to the same terms and conditions as any other Advance or Swing Loan, as applicable, except that they shall not be eligible for the LIBOR Option and the rate of interest applicable thereto shall be the rate applicable to Advances that are Base Rate Loans under Section 2.6(c) hereof without regard to the presence or absence of a Default or Event of Default. (i) In the event Agent obtains actual knowledge that the Revolver Usage exceeds the amounts permitted by the preceding paragraph, regardless of the amount of, or reason for, such excess, Agent shall notify Lenders as soon as practicable (and prior to making any (or any additional) intentional Overadvances (except for and excluding amounts charged to the Loan Account for interest, fees, or Lender Group Expenses) unless Agent determines that prior notice would result in imminent harm to the Collateral or its value), and the Lenders with Revolver Commitments thereupon shall, together with Agent, jointly determine the terms of arrangements that shall be implemented with Borrowers and intended to reduce, within a reasonable time, the outstanding principal amount of the Advances to Borrowers to an amount permitted by the preceding paragraph. In the event Agent or any Lender disagrees over the terms of reduction or repayment of any Overadvance, the terms of reduction or repayment thereof shall be implemented according to the determination of the Required Lenders. (ii) Each Lender with a Revolver Commitment shall be obligated to settle with Agent as provided in Section 2.3(f) for the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any unintentional Overadvances by Agent reported to such Lender, any intentional Overadvances made as permitted under this Section 2.3(i), and any Overadvances resulting from the charging to the Loan Account of interest, fees, or Lender Group Expenses. 2.4 PAYMENTS. (a) PAYMENTS BY BORROWERS. (i) Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by Borrowers shall be made to Agent's Account for the account of the Lender Group and shall be made in immediately available funds, no later than 11:00 a.m. (California time) on the date specified herein. Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (b)(iii) below, any payment received by Agent later than 11:00 a.m. (California time), shall be deemed to have been received on the following 47 Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue until such following Business Day. (ii) Unless Agent receives notice from Administrative Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Lenders that Borrowers will not make such payment in full as and when required, Agent may assume that Borrowers have made (or will make) such payment in full to Agent on such date in immediately available funds and Agent may (but shall not be so required), in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to each Lender on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender. If and to the extent Borrowers do not make such payment in full to Agent on the date when due, each Lender severally shall repay to Agent on demand such amount distributed to such Lender, together with interest thereon at the Defaulting Lender Rate for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender until the date repaid. (b) APPORTIONMENT AND APPLICATION OF PAYMENTS. (i) Except as otherwise provided with respect to Defaulting Lenders and except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents (including any letter agreements between Agent and individual Lenders), aggregate principal and interest payments shall be apportioned ratably among the Lenders (according to the unpaid principal balance of the Obligations to which such payments relate held by each Lender) and payments of fees and expenses (other than fees or expenses that are for Agent's separate account, after giving effect to any letter agreements between Agent and individual Lenders) shall be apportioned ratably among the Lenders having a Pro Rata Share of the type of Commitment or Obligation to which a particular fee relates. All payments shall be remitted to Agent and all such payments, and all proceeds of any Loan Party's Accounts, or Collateral received by Agent, shall be applied as follows: (A) first, to pay any Lender Group Expenses then due to Agent under the Loan Documents, until paid in full, (B) second, to pay any Lender Group Expenses then due to the Lenders under the Loan Documents, on a ratable basis, until paid in full, (C) third, to pay any fees then due to Agent (for its separate accounts, after giving effect to any letter agreements between Agent and the individual Lenders) under the Loan Documents until paid in full, (D) fourth, to pay any fees then due to any or all of the Lenders (after giving effect to any letter agreements between Agent and individual Lenders) under the Loan Documents, on a ratable basis, until paid in full, (E) fifth, to pay interest due in respect of all Agent Advances, until paid in full, 48 (F) sixth, ratably to pay interest due in respect of the Advances (other than Agent Advances), the Swing Loans, and the Term Loan until paid in full, (G) seventh, to pay the principal of all Agent Advances until paid in full, (H) eighth, so long as no Enforcement Event exists, ratably to pay all principal amounts then due and payable (other than as a result of an acceleration thereof) with respect to the Term Loan until paid in full, (I) ninth, to pay the principal of all Swing Loans until paid in full, (J) tenth, so long as no Enforcement Event exists, and at Agent's election (which election Agent agrees will not be made if an Overadvance would be created thereby), to pay amounts then due and owing by Administrative Borrower or its Subsidiaries in respect of Bank Products in an amount up to the amount of the Bank Product Reserves, until paid in full, (K) eleventh, so long as no Enforcement Event exists, to pay the principal of all Advances until paid in full, (L) twelfth, if an Enforcement Event exists, ratably (i) to pay the principal amount of all Advances until paid in full, (ii) to Agent, to be held by Agent, for the ratable benefit of Issuing Lender and those Lenders having a Revolver Commitment, as cash collateral in an amount up to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage until paid in full, and (iii) to pay the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan until the Term Loan is paid in full, (M) thirteenth, if an Enforcement Event exists, to Agent, to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers, as cash collateral in an amount up to the amount of the Bank Product Reserve established prior to the occurrence of, and not in contemplation of, the subject Event of Default until Administrative Borrower's and its Subsidiaries' obligations in respect of the then extant Bank Products have been paid in full or the cash collateral amount has been exhausted, (N) fourteenth, if an Enforcement Event exists, to pay any other Obligations (including Bank Product Obligations) until paid in full, and (O) fifteenth, to Borrowers (to be wired to the Designated Account) or such other Person entitled thereto under the Term Loan B Intercreditor Agreement or Applicable Laws. 49 (ii) Agent promptly shall distribute to each Lender, pursuant to the applicable wire instructions received from each Lender in writing, such funds as it may be entitled to receive, subject to a Settlement delay as provided in Section 2.3(h). (iii) In each instance, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Section 2.4(b) shall not be deemed to apply to any payment by Borrowers specified by Borrowers to be for the payment of specific Obligations then due and payable (or prepayable) under any provision of this Agreement. (iv) For purposes of the foregoing, "paid in full" means payment in cash of all amounts owing under the Loan Documents according to the terms thereof, including loan fees, service fees, professional fees, interest (and specifically including interest accrued after the commencement of any Insolvency Proceeding), default interest, interest on interest, and expense reimbursements, whether or not the same would be or is allowed or disallowed in whole or in part in any Insolvency Proceeding. (v) In the event of a direct conflict between the priority provisions of this Section 2.4 and other provisions contained in any other Loan Document, it is the intention of the parties hereto that such priority provisions in such documents shall be read together and construed, to the fullest extent possible, to be in concert with each other. In the event of any actual, irreconcilable conflict that cannot be resolved as aforesaid, the terms and provisions of this Section 2.4 shall control and govern. 2.5 OVERADVANCES. If, at any time or for any reason, the amount of Obligations (other than Bank Product Obligations) owed by Borrowers to the Lender Group pursuant to Sections 2.1 and 2.12 is greater than either the Dollar or percentage limitations set forth in Sections 2.1 or 2.12 (an "Overadvance"), Borrowers immediately shall pay to Agent, in cash, the amount of such excess, which amount shall be used by Agent to reduce the Obligations in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 2.4(b). In addition, Borrowers hereby promise to pay the Obligations (including principal, interest, fees, costs, and expenses) in Dollars in full to the Lender Group as and when due and payable under the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. 2.6 INTEREST RATES AND LETTER OF CREDIT FEE: RATES, PAYMENTS, AND CALCULATIONS. (a) INTEREST RATES. Except as provided in clause (c) below, all Obligations (except for undrawn Letters of Credit and except for Bank Product Obligations) that have been charged to the Loan Account pursuant to the terms hereof shall bear interest on the Daily Balance thereof as follows (i) if the relevant Obligation is an Advance that is a LIBOR Rate Loan, at a per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin, (ii) if the relevant Obligation is a portion of the Term Loan that is a LIBOR Rate Loan, at a per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin, (iii) if the relevant Obligation is a portion of the Term Loan that is a Base Rate Loan, at a per annum rate equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin, and (iv) otherwise, at a per annum rate equal to the Base Rate plus the 50 Application Margin. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, (x) for the period of 3 Business Days immediately following the Closing Date, all Advances shall be Base Rate Loans, and (y) the Term Loan shall be a LIBOR Rate Loan at all times after the Closing Date until such time as Agent may convert the Term Loan to a Base Rate Loan pursuant to Section 2.13(a) upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default. (b) LETTER OF CREDIT FEE. Borrowers shall pay Agent (for the ratable benefit of the Lenders with a Revolver Commitment, subject to any letter agreement between Agent and individual Lenders), a Letter of Credit fee (the "Letter of Credit Fee") (in addition to the charges, commissions, fees, and costs set forth in Section 2.12(f)) which shall accrue at a rate equal to the Applicable Margin for the Letter of Credit Fees times the Daily Balance of the undrawn amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit as of the date of determination. (c) DEFAULT RATE. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default (and at the election of Agent or the Required Lenders), (i) all Obligations (except for undrawn Letters of Credit and except for Bank Product Obligations) that have been charged to the Loan Account pursuant to the terms hereof shall bear interest on the Daily Balance thereof at a per annum rate equal to 2.00 percentage points above the per annum rate otherwise applicable hereunder (the "Default Rate"), and (ii) the Letter of Credit fee provided for above shall be increased to 2.00 percentage points above the per annum rate otherwise applicable hereunder. (d) PAYMENT. Interest (other than interest on LIBOR Rate Loans), Letter of Credit fees, and all other fees payable hereunder shall be due and payable, in arrears, on the first Business Day of each month at any time that Obligations or Commitments are outstanding. Borrowers hereby authorize Agent, from time to time, without prior notice to Borrowers, to charge all interest and fees, all Lender Group Expenses (as and when incurred), the charges, commissions, fees, and costs provided for in Section 2.12(f) (as and when accrued or incurred), the fees and costs provided for in Section 2.11 (as and when accrued or incurred), and all other payments as and when due and payable under any Loan Document (including the installments due and payable with respect to the Term Loan and including any amounts due and payable to Bank Product Providers in respect of Bank Products up to the amount of the then extant Bank Product Reserve) to Borrowers' Loan Account, which amounts thereafter shall constitute Advances hereunder and shall accrue interest at the rate then applicable to Advances hereunder. Any interest not paid when due shall be compounded by being charged to Borrowers' Loan Account and shall thereafter constitute Advances hereunder and shall accrue interest at the rate then applicable to Advances that are Base Rate Loans hereunder. (e) COMPUTATION. All interest and fees chargeable under the Loan Documents shall be computed on the basis of a 360 day year for the actual number of days elapsed. In the event the Base Rate is changed from time to time hereafter, the rates of interest hereunder based upon the Base Rate automatically and immediately shall be increased or decreased by an amount equal to such change in the Base Rate. 51 (f) INTENT TO LIMIT CHARGES TO MAXIMUM LAWFUL RATE. In no event shall the interest rate or rates payable under this Agreement, plus any other amounts paid in connection herewith, exceed the highest rate permissible under any law that a court of competent jurisdiction shall, in a final determination, deem applicable. Borrowers and the Lender Group, in executing and delivering this Agreement, intend legally to agree upon the rate or rates of interest and manner of payment stated within it; provided, however, that, anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, if said rate or rates of interest or manner of payment exceeds the maximum allowable under Applicable Laws, then, ipso facto, as of the date of this Agreement, Borrowers are and shall be liable only for the payment of such maximum as allowed by law, and payment received from Borrowers in excess of such legal maximum, whenever received, shall be applied to reduce the principal balance of the Obligations to the extent of such excess. 2.7 CASH MANAGEMENT. (a) Borrowers shall, and shall cause each of the Guarantors to, (i) establish and maintain cash management services of a type and on terms satisfactory to Agent at one or more of the banks set forth on Schedule 2.7(a) (each, a "Cash Management Bank"), and shall immediately after the Closing Date request in writing and otherwise take such reasonable steps to ensure that all of their Account Debtors forward payment of the amounts owed by them directly to such Cash Management Bank, and (ii) deposit or cause to be deposited promptly, and in any event no later than the first Business Day after the date of receipt thereof, all Collections (including those sent directly by their Account Debtors to a Cash Management Bank or Collections received at a retail location of any Borrower or any Guarantor) into a bank account in Agent's name (a "Cash Management Account") at one of the Cash Management Banks. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, the New AMERCO Notes Accounts shall not be deemed to be Cash Management Accounts. (b) The Cash Management Bank maintaining the Concentration Account and such other Cash Management Banks as may be required by Agent shall establish and maintain Cash Management Agreements with Agent and Borrowers, in form and substance acceptable to Agent. Each such Cash Management Agreement shall provide, among other things, that (i) all items of payment deposited in such Cash Management Account and proceeds thereof are held by such Cash Management Bank as agent or bailee-in-possession for Agent, (ii) the Cash Management Bank has no rights of setoff or recoupment or any other claim against the applicable Cash Management Account, other than for payment of its service fees and other charges directly related to the administration of such Cash Management Account and for returned checks or other items of payment, and (iii) it immediately will forward by daily sweep all amounts in the applicable Cash Management Account to the Concentration Account. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and in accordance with the terms of and subject to the conditions set forth in the Cash Management Agreement applicable to the Concentration Account, all amounts received in the Concentration Account shall be swept into the Agent's Account. (c) So long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Administrative Borrower may amend Schedule 2.7(a) to add or replace a Cash Management Account Bank or Cash Management Account; provided, however, that (i) such prospective Cash Management Bank shall be reasonably satisfactory to Agent and Agent shall have consented in 52 writing in advance to the opening of such Cash Management Account with the prospective Cash Management Bank, and (ii) prior to the time of the opening of such Cash Management Account, Borrowers or Guarantors, as applicable, and such prospective Cash Management Bank shall have executed and delivered to Agent a Cash Management Agreement. Borrowers or Guarantor, as applicable, shall close any of their Cash Management Accounts (and establish replacement cash management accounts in accordance with the foregoing sentence) promptly and in any event within 30 days of notice from Agent that the creditworthiness of any Cash Management Bank is no longer acceptable in Agent's reasonable judgment, or as promptly as practicable and in any event within 60 days of notice from Agent that the operating performance, funds transfer, or availability procedures or performance of the Cash Management Bank with respect to Cash Management Accounts or Agent's liability under any Cash Management Agreement with such Cash Management Bank is no longer acceptable in Agent's reasonable judgment. (d) The Cash Management Accounts shall be cash collateral accounts, with all cash, checks and similar items of payment in such accounts securing payment of the Obligations, and in which Borrowers are hereby deemed to have granted a Lien to Agent. (e) The parties hereby stipulate and agree that the Loan Parties shall be allowed to maintain those certain cash collateral accounts for the benefit of third parties, and in the amounts, set forth on Schedule 2.7(e); provided, however no Loan Party shall increase the amount held in any such cash collateral account without the prior written consent of Agent. (f) In no event shall any Loan Party deposit the proceeds of any Collateral into any New AMERCO Note Account. 2.8 CREDITING PAYMENTS. The receipt of any payment item by Agent (whether from transfers to Agent by the Cash Management Banks pursuant to the Cash Management Agreements or otherwise) shall not be considered a payment on account unless such payment item is a wire transfer of immediately available federal funds made to the Agent's Account or unless and until such payment item is honored when presented for payment. Should any payment item not be honored when presented for payment, then Borrowers shall be deemed not to have made such payment and interest shall be calculated accordingly. Anything to the contrary contained herein notwithstanding, any payment item shall be deemed received by Agent only if it is received into the Agent's Account on a Business Day on or before 11:00 a.m. (California time). If any item is received into the Agent's Account on a non-Business Day or after 11:00 a.m. (California time) on a Business Day, it shall be deemed to have been received by Agent as of the opening of business on the immediately following Business Day. 2.9 DESIGNATED ACCOUNT. Agent is authorized to make the Advances and the Term Loan, and Issuing Lender is authorized to issue the Letters of Credit, under this Agreement based upon telephonic or other instructions received from anyone purporting to be an Authorized Person, or without instructions if pursuant to Section 2.6(d). Administrative Borrower agrees to establish and maintain the Designated Account with the Designated Account Bank for the purpose of receiving the proceeds of the Advances requested by Borrowers and made by Agent or the Lenders hereunder. Unless otherwise agreed by Agent and Administrative Borrower, any Advance, Agent Advance, or Swing Loan requested by Borrowers and made by Agent or the Lenders hereunder shall be made to the Designated Account. 53 2.10 MAINTENANCE OF LOAN ACCOUNT; STATEMENTS OF OBLIGATIONS. Agent shall maintain an account on its books in the name of Borrowers (the "Loan Account") on which Borrowers will be charged with the Term Loan, all Advances (including Agent Advances and Swing Loans) made by Agent, Swing Lender, or the Lenders to Borrowers or for Borrowers' account, the Letters of Credit issued by Issuing Lender for Borrowers' account, and with all other payment Obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents (except for Bank Product Obligations), including, accrued interest, fees and expenses, and Lender Group Expenses. In accordance with Section 2.8, the Loan Account will be credited with all payments received by Agent from Borrowers or for Borrowers' account, including all amounts received in the Agent's Account from any Cash Management Bank. Agent shall render statements regarding the Loan Account to Administrative Borrower, including principal, interest, fees, and including an itemization of all charges and expenses constituting Lender Group Expenses owing, and such statements, absent manifest error, shall be conclusively presumed to be correct and accurate and constitute an account stated between Borrowers and the Lender Group unless, within 30 days after receipt thereof by Administrative Borrower, Administrative Borrower shall deliver to Agent written objection thereto describing the error or errors contained in any such statements. 2.11 FEES. Borrowers shall pay to Agent the following fees and charges, which fees and charges shall be fully earned and due and non-refundable when paid (irrespective of whether this Agreement is terminated thereafter): (a) UNUSED LINE FEE. On the first day of each fiscal quarter during the term of this Agreement, an unused line fee (the "Unused Line Fee"), for the benefit of the Lenders with a Revolver Commitment in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares, in the amount equal to 0.50% per annum times the result of (a) the Maximum Revolver Amount, less (b) the sum of (i) the average Daily Balance of Advances that were outstanding during the immediately preceding fiscal quarter, plus (ii) the average Daily Balance of the Letter of Credit Usage during the immediately preceding fiscal quarter; provided, however, the Unused Line Fee shall not begin to accrue until the earlier of the Closing Date and March 15, 2004, (b) FEE LETTER FEES. As and when due and payable under the terms of the Fee Letter, the fees set forth in the Fee Letter, and (c) AUDIT, APPRAISAL, AND VALUATION CHARGES. Audit, appraisal, and valuation fees and charges as follows, (i) a fee of $850 per day, per auditor, plus out-of-pocket expenses for each financial audit of a Borrower performed by personnel employed by Agent, and (ii) the actual charges paid or incurred by Agent if it elects to employ the services of one or more third Persons to perform financial audits of Borrowers, to appraise the Collateral, or any portion thereof, or to assess a Borrower's business valuation. 2.12 LETTERS OF CREDIT. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Issuing Lender agrees to issue letters of credit for the account of Borrowers (each, an "L/C") or to purchase participations or execute indemnities or reimbursement obligations (each such undertaking, an "L/C Undertaking") with respect to letters of credit issued by an Underlying Issuer (as of the Closing Date, the prospective Underlying Issuer is to be Wells Fargo) for the account of 54 Borrowers, including, without limitation, all Letters of Credit outstanding on the Closing Date and issued by Wells Fargo pursuant to the DIP Loan Agreement. As of the Closing Date, all Letters of Credit (as defined therein) under the DIP Loan Agreement are listed on Schedule 2.12 hereof, and such Letters of Credit shall be deemed to be Letters of Credit issued and outstanding pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. To request the issuance of an L/C or an L/C Undertaking (or the amendment, renewal, or extension of an outstanding L/C or L/C Undertaking), Administrative Borrower shall hand deliver or telecopy (or transmit by electronic communication, if arrangements for doing so have been approved by the Issuing Lender) to the Issuing Lender and Agent (reasonably in advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal, or extension) a notice requesting the issuance of an L/C or L/C Undertaking, or identifying the L/C or L/C Undertaking to be amended, renewed, or extended, the date of issuance, amendment, renewal, or extension, the date on which such L/C or L/C Undertaking is to expire, the amount of such L/C or L/C Undertaking, the name and address of the beneficiary thereof (or of the Underlying Letter of Credit, as applicable), and such other information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, renew, or extend such L/C or L/C Undertaking. If requested by the Issuing Lender, Borrowers also shall be an applicant under the application with respect to any Underlying Letter of Credit that is to be the subject of an L/C Undertaking. The Issuing Lender shall have no obligation to issue a Letter of Credit if any of the following would result after giving effect to the requested Letter of Credit: (i) the Letter of Credit Usage would exceed the Borrowing Base less the amount of outstanding Advances less the outstanding balance of the Term Loan, or (ii) the Letter of Credit Usage would exceed $50,000,000, or (iii) the Letter of Credit Usage would exceed the Maximum Revolver Amount less the then extant amount of outstanding Advances. (b) Borrowers and the Lender Group acknowledge and agree that certain Underlying Letters of Credit may be issued to support letters of credit that already are outstanding as of the Closing Date. Each Letter of Credit (and corresponding Underlying Letter of Credit) shall be in form and substance acceptable to the Issuing Lender (in the exercise of its Permitted Discretion), including the requirement that the amounts payable thereunder must be payable in Dollars. If Issuing Lender is obligated to advance funds under a Letter of Credit, Borrowers immediately shall reimburse such L/C Disbursement to Issuing Lender by paying to Agent an amount equal to such L/C Disbursement not later than 11:00 a.m. (California time), on the date that such L/C Disbursement is made, if Administrative Borrower shall have received written or telephonic notice of such L/C Disbursement prior to 10:00 a.m. (California time), on such date, or, if such notice has not been received by Administrative Borrower prior to such time on such date, then not later than 11:00 a.m. (California time), on (i) the Business Day that Administrative Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is received prior to 10:00 a.m. (California time), on the date of receipt, and, in the absence of reimbursement within such time frame, the L/C Disbursement immediately and automatically shall be deemed to be an Advance hereunder and, thereafter, shall bear interest at the rate then applicable to Advances that are Base Rate Loans under Section 2.6. To the extent an L/C Disbursement is deemed to be an Advance hereunder, Borrowers' obligation to reimburse such L/C Disbursement shall be discharged and 55 replaced by the resulting Advance. Promptly following receipt by Agent of any payment from Borrowers pursuant to this paragraph, Agent shall distribute such payment to the Issuing Lender or, to the extent that Lenders have made payments pursuant to Section 2.12(c) to reimburse the Issuing Lender, then to such Lenders and the Issuing Lender as their interest may appear. (c) Promptly following receipt of a notice of L/C Disbursement pursuant to Section 2.12(a), each Lender with a Revolver Commitment agrees to fund its Pro Rata Share of any Advance deemed made pursuant to the foregoing subsection on the same terms and conditions as if Borrowers had requested such Advance and Agent shall promptly pay to Issuing Lender the amounts so received by it from the Lenders. By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the amount thereof) and without any further action on the part of the Issuing Lender or the Lenders with a Revolver Commitment, the Issuing Lender shall be deemed to have granted to each Lender with a Revolver Commitment, and each Lender with a Revolver Commitment shall be deemed to have purchased, a participation in each Letter of Credit, in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the Risk Participation Liability of such Letter of Credit, and each such Lender agrees to pay to Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any payments made by the Issuing Lender under such Letter of Credit. In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Lender with a Revolver Commitment hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, such Lender's Pro Rata Share of each L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender and not reimbursed by Borrowers on the date due as provided in clause (a) of this Section, or of any reimbursement payment required to be refunded to Borrowers for any reason. Each Lender with a Revolver Commitment acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to deliver to Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, an amount equal to its respective Pro Rata Share of each L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender pursuant to this Section 2.12(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and such remittance shall be made notwithstanding the occurrence or continuation of an Event of Default or Default or the failure to satisfy any condition set forth in Section 3 hereof. If any such Lender fails to make available to Agent the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender in respect of such Letter of Credit as provided in this Section, such Lender shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender. Agent (for the account of the Issuing Lender) shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon at the Defaulting Lender Rate until paid in full. (d) Each Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify, save, defend, and hold the Lender Group harmless from any loss, cost, expense, or liability, and reasonable attorneys fees incurred by the Lender Group arising out of or in connection with any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that no Borrower shall be obligated hereunder to indemnify for any loss, cost, expense, or liability that is caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Lender or any other member of the Lender Group. Each Borrower agrees to be bound by the Underlying Issuer's regulations and interpretations of any Underlying Letter of Credit or by Issuing Lender's interpretations of any L/C issued by Issuing Lender to or for such Borrower's account, even though this interpretation may be different from such Borrower's own, and each Borrower understands and agrees that the Lender Group shall not be liable for any error, negligence, or mistake, whether of omission or commission, in following Borrowers' instructions or those contained in the Letter of Credit or any modifications, amendments, or supplements thereto. Each Borrower understands that the L/C Undertakings may require Issuing Lender to indemnify 56 the Underlying Issuer for certain costs or liabilities arising out of claims by Borrowers against such Underlying Issuer. Each Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify, save, defend, and hold the Lender Group harmless with respect to any loss, cost, expense (including reasonable attorneys fees), or liability incurred by the Lender Group under any L/C Undertaking as a result of the Lender Group's indemnification of any Underlying Issuer; provided, however, that no Borrower shall be obligated hereunder to indemnify for any loss, cost, expense, or liability that is caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Lender or any other member of the Lender Group. (e) Each Borrower hereby authorizes and directs any Underlying Issuer to deliver to the Issuing Lender all instruments, documents, and other writings and property received by such Underlying Issuer pursuant to such Underlying Letter of Credit and to accept and rely upon the Issuing Lender's instructions with respect to all matters arising in connection with such Underlying Letter of Credit and the related application. (f) Any and all charges, commissions, fees, and costs incurred by the Issuing Lender relating to Underlying Letters of Credit shall be Lender Group Expenses for purposes of this Agreement and immediately shall be reimbursable by Borrowers to Agent for the account of the Issuing Lender; it being acknowledged and agreed by each Borrower that, as of the Closing Date, the usage charge imposed by the prospective Underlying Issuer is .825% per annum times the face amount of each Underlying Letter of Credit, that such issuance charge may be changed from time to time, and that the Underlying Issuer also imposes a schedule of charges for amendments, extensions, drawings, and renewals. (g) If by reason of (i) any change after the Closing Date in any Applicable Law, treaty, rule, or regulation or any change in the interpretation or application thereof by any Governmental Authority, or (ii) compliance by the Underlying Issuer or the Lender Group with any direction, request, or requirement (irrespective of whether having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority or monetary authority including, Regulation D of the Federal Reserve Board as from time to time in effect (and any successor thereto): (i) any reserve, deposit, or similar requirement is or shall be imposed or modified in respect of any Letter of Credit issued hereunder, or (ii) there shall be imposed on the Underlying Issuer or the Lender Group any other condition regarding any Underlying Letter of Credit or any Letter of Credit issued pursuant hereto; and the result of the foregoing is to increase, directly or indirectly, the cost to the Lender Group of issuing, making, guaranteeing, or maintaining any Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount receivable in respect thereof by the Lender Group, then, and in any such case, Agent may (and at the direction of the Required Lenders, Agent shall), at any time within a reasonable period after the additional cost is incurred or the amount received is reduced, notify Administrative Borrower, and Borrowers shall pay on demand such amounts as Agent may specify to be necessary to compensate the Lender Group for such additional cost or reduced receipt, together with interest on such amount from the date of such demand until payment in full thereof at the rate then applicable to Base Rate Loans hereunder. The determination by Agent of any amount 57 due pursuant to this Section, as set forth in a certificate setting forth the calculation thereof in reasonable detail, shall, in the absence of manifest or demonstrable error, be final and conclusive and binding on all of the parties hereto. 2.13 LIBOR OPTION. (a) INTEREST AND INTEREST PAYMENT DATES. In lieu of having interest charged at the rate based upon the Base Rate, Borrowers shall have the option (the "LIBOR Option") to have interest on all or a portion of the Advances be charged at a rate of interest based upon the LIBOR Rate. The Term Loan shall be a LIBOR Rate Loan at all times after the Closing Date until such time as Agent may elect to convert the Term Loan to a Base Rate Loan upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default. Interest on LIBOR Rate Loans shall be payable on the earliest of (i) the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, unless the Interest Period is longer than 3 months, in which case interest shall be payable on (A) each 3-month anniversary of the commencement date of such Interest Period and (B) the last day of such Interest Period, (ii) the occurrence of an Event of Default in consequence of which the Required Lenders or Agent on behalf thereof elect to accelerate the maturity of all or any portion of the Obligations, or (iii) termination of this Agreement pursuant to the terms hereof. On the last day of each applicable Interest Period, unless Administrative Borrower properly has exercised the LIBOR Option with respect thereto, the interest rate applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loan automatically shall convert to the rate of interest then applicable to Base Rate Loans of the same type hereunder. At any time that an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrowers no longer shall have the option to request that Advances or the Term Loan bear interest at the LIBOR Rate and Agent shall have the right to convert the interest rate on all outstanding LIBOR Rate Loans to the rate then applicable to Base Rate Loans hereunder. (b) LIBOR ELECTION. (i) Administrative Borrower may, at any time and from time to time, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, elect to exercise the LIBOR Option by notifying Agent prior to 11:00 a.m. (California time) at least 3 Business Days prior to the commencement of the proposed Interest Period (the "LIBOR Deadline"). Notice of Administrative Borrower's election of the LIBOR Option for a permitted portion of the Advances (or, with respect to the selection of a new Interest Period, the Term Loan) and an Interest Period pursuant to this Section shall be made by delivery to Agent of a LIBOR Notice received by Agent before the LIBOR Deadline, or by telephonic notice received by Agent before the LIBOR Deadline (to be confirmed by delivery to Agent of a LIBOR Notice received by Agent prior to 5:00 p.m. (California time) on the same day). Promptly upon its receipt of each such LIBOR Notice, Agent shall provide a copy thereof to each of the Lenders having a Revolver Commitment. (ii) Each LIBOR Notice shall be irrevocable and binding on Borrowers. In connection with each LIBOR Rate Loan, each Borrower shall indemnify, defend, and hold Agent and the Lenders harmless against any loss, cost, or expense incurred by Agent or any Lender as a result of (a) the payment of any principal of any LIBOR Rate Loan other than on the last day of an Interest 58 Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any LIBOR Rate Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, or (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any LIBOR Rate Loan on the date specified in any LIBOR Notice delivered pursuant hereto (such losses, costs, and expenses, collectively, "Funding Losses"). Funding Losses shall, with respect to Agent or any Lender, be deemed to equal the amount determined by Agent or such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of such LIBOR Rate Loan had such event not occurred, at the LIBOR Rate that would have been applicable thereto, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period therefor), minus (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which Agent or such Lender would be offered were it to be offered, at the commencement of such period, Dollar deposits of a comparable amount and period in the London interbank market. A certificate of Agent or a Lender delivered to Administrative Borrower setting forth any amount or amounts that Agent or such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be conclusive absent manifest error. (iii) Borrowers shall have not more than 6 LIBOR Rate Loans in effect at any given time. Borrowers only may exercise the LIBOR Option for LIBOR Rate Loans of at least $1,000,000 and integral multiples of $500,000 in excess thereof. (c) PREPAYMENTS. Borrowers may prepay LIBOR Rate Loans at any time; provided, however, that in the event that LIBOR Rate Loans are prepaid on any date that is not the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, including as a result of any automatic prepayment through the required application by Agent of proceeds of Collections in accordance with Section 2.4(b) or for any other reason, including early termination of the term of this Agreement or acceleration of all or any portion of the Obligations pursuant to the terms hereof, each Borrower shall indemnify, defend, and hold Agent and the Lenders and their Participants harmless against any and all Funding Losses in accordance with clause (b) above. (d) SPECIAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO LIBOR RATE. (i) The LIBOR Rate may be adjusted by Agent with respect to any Lender on a prospective basis to take into account any additional or increased costs to such Lender of maintaining or obtaining any eurodollar deposits or increased costs due to changes in Applicable Laws occurring subsequent to the commencement of the then applicable Interest Period, including changes in tax laws (except changes of general applicability in corporate income tax laws) and changes in the reserve requirements imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor), excluding the Reserve Percentage, which additional or increased costs would increase the cost of funding loans bearing interest at the LIBOR Rate. In any such event, the affected Lender shall give Administrative Borrower and Agent notice of such a determination and 59 adjustment and Agent promptly shall transmit the notice to each other Lender and, upon its receipt of the notice from the affected Lender, Administrative Borrower may, by notice to the affected Lender (y) require such Lender to furnish to Administrative Borrower a statement setting forth the basis for adjusting such LIBOR Rate and the method for determining the amount of such adjustment, or (z) repay the LIBOR Rate Loans with respect to which such adjustment is made (together with any amounts due under clause (b)(ii) above). (ii) In the event that any change in market conditions or any law, regulation, treaty, or directive, or any change therein or in the interpretation of application thereof, shall at any time after the date hereof, in the reasonable opinion of any Lender, make it unlawful or impractical for such Lender to fund or maintain LIBOR Advances or to continue such funding or maintaining, or to determine or charge interest rates at the LIBOR Rate, such Lender shall give notice of such changed circumstances to Agent and Administrative Borrower and Agent promptly shall transmit the notice to each other Lender and (y) in the case of any LIBOR Rate Loans of such Lender that are outstanding, the date specified in such Lender's notice shall be deemed to be the last day of the Interest Period of such LIBOR Rate Loans, and interest upon the LIBOR Rate Loans of such Lender thereafter shall accrue interest at the rate then applicable to Base Rate Loans, and (z) Borrowers shall not be entitled to elect the LIBOR Option until such Lender determines that it would no longer be unlawful or impractical to do so. (e) NO REQUIREMENT OF MATCHED FUNDING. Anything to the contrary contained herein notwithstanding, neither Agent, nor any Lender, nor any of their Participants, is required actually to acquire eurodollar deposits to fund or otherwise match fund any Obligation as to which interest accrues at the LIBOR Rate. The provisions of this Section shall apply as if each Lender or its Participants had match-funded any Obligation as to which interest is accruing at the LIBOR Rate by acquiring eurodollar deposits for each Interest Period in the amount of the LIBOR Rate Loans. 2.14 CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS. If, after the date hereof, any Lender determines that (i) the adoption of or change in any law, rule, regulation or guideline regarding capital requirements for banks or bank holding companies, or any change in the interpretation or application thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the administration thereof, or (ii) compliance by such Lender or its parent bank holding company with any guideline, request or directive of any such entity regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law), will have the effect of reducing the return on such Lender's or such holding company's capital as a consequence of such Lender's Commitments hereunder to a level below that which such Lender or such holding company could have achieved but for such adoption, change, or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender's or such holding company's then existing policies with respect to capital adequacy and assuming the full utilization of such entity's capital) by any amount deemed by such Lender to be material, then such Lender may notify Administrative Borrower and Agent thereof. Following receipt of such notice, Borrowers agree to pay such Lender on demand the amount of such reduction of return of capital as and when such reduction is determined, payable within 90 days after presentation by such Lender of a statement in the amount and setting forth in reasonable detail such Lender's calculation thereof and the 60 assumptions upon which such calculation was based (which statement shall be deemed true and correct absent manifest error). In determining such amount, such Lender may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods. 2.15 JOINT AND SEVERAL LIABILITY OF BORROWERS. (a) Each Borrower is accepting joint and several liability hereunder and under the other Loan Documents in consideration of the financial accommodations to be provided by the Agent and the Lenders under this Agreement, for the mutual benefit, directly and indirectly, of each Borrower and in consideration of the undertakings of the other Borrowers to accept joint and several liability for the Obligations. (b) Each Borrower, jointly and severally, hereby irrevocably and unconditionally accepts, not merely as a surety but also as a co-debtor, joint and several liability with the other Borrowers, with respect to the payment and performance of all of the Obligations (including, without limitation, any Obligations arising under this Section 2.15), it being the intention of the parties hereto that all the Obligations shall be the joint and several obligations of each Borrower without preferences or distinction among them. (c) If and to the extent that any Borrower shall fail to make any payment with respect to any of the Obligations as and when due or to perform any of the Obligations in accordance with the terms thereof, then in each such event the other Borrowers will make such payment with respect to, or perform, such Obligation. (d) The Obligations of each Borrower under the provisions of this Section 2.15 constitute the absolute and unconditional, full recourse Obligations of each Borrower enforceable against each such Borrower to the full extent of its properties and assets, irrespective of the validity, regularity or enforceability of this Agreement or any other circumstances whatsoever. (e) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, each Borrower hereby waives notice of acceptance of its joint and several liability, notice of any Advances or Letters of Credit issued under or pursuant to this Agreement, notice of the occurrence of any Default, Event of Default, or of any demand for any payment under this Agreement, notice of any action at any time taken or omitted by Agent or Lenders under or in respect of any of the Obligations, any requirement of diligence or to mitigate damages and, generally, to the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, all demands, notices and other formalities of every kind in connection with this Agreement (except as otherwise provided in this Agreement). Each Borrower hereby assents to, and waives notice of, any extension or postponement of the time for the payment of any of the Obligations, the acceptance of any payment of any of the Obligations, the acceptance of any partial payment thereon, any waiver, consent or other action or acquiescence by Agent or Lenders at any time or times in respect of any default by any Borrower in the performance or satisfaction of any term, covenant, condition or provision of this Agreement, any and all other indulgences whatsoever by Agent or Lenders in respect of any of the Obligations, and the taking, addition, substitution or release, in whole or in part, at any time or times, of any security for any of the Obligations or the addition, substitution or release, in whole or in part, of any Borrower. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each 61 Borrower assents to any other action or delay in acting or failure to act on the part of any Agent or Lender with respect to the failure by any Borrower to comply with any of its respective Obligations, including, without limitation, any failure strictly or diligently to assert any right or to pursue any remedy or to comply fully with Applicable Laws or regulations thereunder, which might, but for the provisions of this Section 2.15, afford grounds for terminating, discharging or relieving any Borrower, in whole or in part, from any of its Obligations under this Section 2.15, it being the intention of each Borrower that, so long as any of the Obligations hereunder remain unsatisfied, the Obligations of such Borrower under this Section 2.15 shall not be discharged except by performance and then only to the extent of such performance. The Obligations of each Borrower under this Section 2.15 shall not be diminished or rendered unenforceable by any winding up, reorganization, arrangement, liquidation, reconstruction or similar proceeding with respect to any Borrower or any Agent or Lender. The joint and several liability of the Persons composing Borrowers hereunder shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding any absorption, merger, amalgamation or any other change whatsoever in the name, constitution or place of formation of any of the Persons composing Borrowers or any Agent or Lender. (f) Each Borrower represents and warrants to Agent and Lenders that such Borrower is currently informed of the financial condition of Borrowers and of all other circumstances which a diligent inquiry would reveal and which bear upon the risk of nonpayment of the Obligations. Each Borrower further represents and warrants to Agent and Lenders that such Borrower has read and understands the terms and conditions of the Loan Documents. Each Borrower hereby covenants that such Borrower will continue to keep informed of Borrowers' financial condition, the financial condition of other guarantors, if any, and of all other circumstances which bear upon the risk of nonpayment or nonperformance of the Obligations. (g) The provisions of this Section 2.15 are made for the benefit of the Agent, the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, and may be enforced by it or them from time to time against any or all of Borrowers as often as occasion therefor may arise and without requirement on the part of any such Agent, Lender, successor or assign first to marshal any of its or their claims or to exercise any of its or their rights against any of the other Borrowers or to exhaust any remedies available to it or them against any of the other Borrowers or to resort to any other source or means of obtaining payment of any of the Obligations hereunder or to elect any other remedy. The provisions of this Section 2.15 shall remain in effect until all of the Obligations shall have been paid in full. If at any time, any payment, or any part thereof, made in respect of any of the Obligations, is rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned by any Agent or Lender upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any Borrower, or otherwise, the provisions of this Section 2.15 will forthwith be reinstated in effect, as though such payment had not been made. (h) Each Borrower hereby agrees that it will not enforce any of its rights of contribution or subrogation against the other Borrowers with respect to any liability incurred by it hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents, any payments made by it to Agent or the Lenders with respect to any of the Obligations or any collateral security therefor until such time as all of the Obligations have been paid in full in cash. Any claim which any Borrower may have against any other Borrower with respect to any payments to Agent or Lender hereunder or under any other Loan Documents are hereby expressly made subordinate and junior in right of 62 payment, without limitation as to any increases in the Obligations arising hereunder or thereunder, to the prior payment in full in cash of the Obligations and, in the event of any insolvency, bankruptcy, receivership, liquidation, reorganization or other similar proceeding under the laws of any jurisdiction relating to any Borrower, its debts or its assets, whether voluntary or involuntary, all such Obligations shall be paid in full in cash before any payment or distribution of any character, whether in cash, securities or other property, shall be made to any other Borrower therefor. (i) Each Borrower hereby agrees that, after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Default or Event of Default, the payment of any amounts due with respect to the indebtedness owing by any Borrower to any other Borrower is hereby subordinated to the prior payment in full in cash of the Obligations. Each Borrower hereby agrees that after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Default or Event of Default, such Borrower will not demand, sue for or otherwise attempt to collect any indebtedness of any other Borrower owing to such Borrower until the Obligations shall have been paid in full in cash. If, notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, such Borrower shall collect, enforce or receive any amounts in respect of such indebtedness, such amounts shall be collected, enforced and received by such Borrower as trustee for the Agent, and the Agent shall deliver any such amounts to Agent for application to the Obligations in accordance with Section 2.4(b). 2.16 REGISTERED NOTES. Agent agrees to record each Advance and each Lender's Term Loan on the Register referenced in Section 14.1(h). Each Advance and each Lender's Term Loan recorded on the Register (each a "Registered Loan") may not be evidenced by promissory notes other than Registered Notes (as defined below). Upon the registration of any Advance or any Lender's Term Loan, Borrowers agree at the request of any Lender, to execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note, in conformity with the terms of this Agreement, in registered form to evidence such Registered Loan, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Lender, and registered as provided in Section 14.1(h) (a "Registered Note"), payable to the order of such Lender and otherwise duly completed, provided that any Registered Note issued to evidence Advances or any Lender's Term Loan shall be issued in the principal amount of the applicable Lender's Revolver Commitment or Term Loan Commitment. Once recorded on the Register, each Advance and each Lender's Term Loan may not be removed from the Register so long as it or they remain outstanding, and a Registered Note may not be exchanged for a promissory note that it is not a Registered Note. 3.

On the date of termination of this Agreement, all Obligations (including contingent reimbursement obligations of Borrowers with respect to any outstanding Letters of Credit but excluding all Bank Product Obligations unless so requested by the Bank Product Provider) shall immediately become due and payable without notice or demand (including (a) either (i) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent for the benefit of those Lenders with a Revolver Commitment in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (ii) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to the Issuing Lender, and (b) if the Bank Product Provider so requests, providing cash collateral (in an amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Product Obligations). No termination of this Agreement, however, shall relieve or discharge Borrowers of their duties, Obligations, or covenants hereunder and the Agent's Liens in the Collateral shall remain in effect until all Obligations have been fully and finally discharged and the Lender Group's obligations to provide additional credit hereunder have been terminated. When this Agreement has been terminated and all of the Obligations have been fully and finally discharged and the Lender Group's obligations to provide additional credit under the Loan Documents have been terminated irrevocably, Agent will, at Borrowers' sole expense, execute and deliver any Uniform Commercial Code termination statements, lien releases, mortgage releases, re-assignments of trademarks, Vehicle registration releases, discharges of security interests, and other similar discharge or release documents (and, if applicable, in recordable form) as are reasonably necessary to release, as of record, the Agent's Liens and all notices of security interests and liens previously filed by Agent with respect to the Obligations. 3.6 EARLY TERMINATION BY BORROWERS. Borrowers have the option, at any time upon 30 days' prior written notice by Administrative Borrower to Agent, to terminate this Agreement by paying to Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers, in cash on the applicable termination date, the Obligations (including (a) either (i) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent for the benefit of those Lenders with a Revolver Commitment in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (ii) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to the Issuing Lender, and (b) providing cash collateral (in an 69 amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider as sufficient to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Product Obligations), in full, together with the Applicable Prepayment Premium, to be allocated among the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares. If Administrative Borrower has sent a notice of termination pursuant to the provisions of this Section, then the Commitments shall terminate and Borrowers shall be obligated to repay the Obligations (including (a) either (i) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent for the benefit of those Lenders with a Revolver Commitment in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (ii) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to the Issuing Lender, and (b) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Product Obligations), in full, together with the Applicable Prepayment Premium, on the date set forth as the date of termination of this Agreement in such notice.

If any provision of any Loan Document shall at any time for any reason be declared to be null and void, or the validity or enforceability thereof shall be contested by any Loan Party, or a proceeding shall be commenced by any Loan Party, or by any Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over any Loan Party, seeking to establish the invalidity or unenforceability thereof, or any Loan Party shall deny that any Loan Party has any liability or obligation purported to be created under any Loan Document; 8.13. If suit or action is commenced against Agent or the Lenders and, as to any suit or action brought by any Person other than Borrowers or Guarantors or an officer or employee of Borrowers, is continued without dismissal for 30 days after service thereof on the Lenders, that asserts, by or on behalf of Borrowers or Guarantors, any claim or legal or equitable remedy which seeks subordination of the claim or Lien of the Lenders hereunder or under any other Loan Document; 8.14.

THE LENDER GROUP'S RIGHTS AND REMEDIES. 9.1 RIGHTS AND REMEDIES. (a) Upon the occurrence, and during the continuation, of an Event of Default, the Required Lenders (at their election but without notice of their election and without demand) may authorize and instruct Agent to do any one or more of the following on behalf of the Lender Group (and Agent, acting upon the instructions of the Required Lenders, shall do the same on behalf of the Lender Group), all of which are authorized by Borrowers: (i) Declare all Obligations (other than Bank Product Obligations), whether evidenced by this Agreement, by any of the other Loan Documents, or otherwise, immediately due and payable; (ii) Cease advancing money or extending credit to or for the benefit of Borrowers under this Agreement, under any of the Loan Documents, or under any other agreement between Borrowers and the Lender Group; (iii) Terminate this Agreement and any of the other Loan Documents as to any future liability or obligation of the Lender Group, but without affecting any of the Agent's Liens in the Collateral and without affecting the Obligations; (iv) Settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with Account Debtors of Borrowers for amounts and upon terms which Agent considers advisable, and in such cases, Agent will credit the Loan Account with only the net amounts received by Agent in payment of such disputed Accounts after deducting all Lender Group Expenses incurred or expended in connection therewith; (v) Cause Borrowers to hold all of their returned Inventory in trust for the Lender Group, segregate all returned Inventory from all other assets of Borrowers or in Borrowers' possession and conspicuously label said returned Inventory as the property of the Lender Group; (vi) Without notice to or demand upon any Borrower or any Guarantor, make such payments and do such acts as Agent considers necessary or reasonable to protect its security interests in the Collateral. Each Borrower agrees to assemble the Personal Property Collateral if Agent so requires, and to make the Personal Property Collateral available to Agent at a place that Agent may designate which is reasonably convenient to both parties. Each Borrower authorizes Agent to enter the premises where the Personal Property Collateral is located, to take and maintain possession of the Personal Property Collateral, or any part of it, and to pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien that in Agent's determination appears to conflict with the Agent's Liens and to pay all 103 expenses incurred in connection therewith and to charge Borrowers' Loan Account therefor. With respect to any of Borrowers' owned or leased premises, each Borrower hereby grants Agent a license to enter into possession of such premises and to occupy the same, without charge, in order to exercise any of the Lender Group's rights or remedies provided herein, at law, in equity, or otherwise; (vii) Without notice to any Borrower (such notice being expressly waived), and without constituting an acceptance of any collateral in full or partial satisfaction of an obligation (within the meaning of the Code), set off and apply to the Obligations any and all (i) balances and deposits of any Borrower held by the Lender Group (including any amounts received in the Cash Management Accounts), or (ii) Indebtedness at any time owing to or for the credit or the account of any Borrower held by the Lender Group; (viii) Hold, as cash collateral, any and all balances and deposits of any Borrower held by the Lender Group, and any amounts received in the Cash Management Accounts, to secure the full and final repayment of all of the Obligations; (ix) Ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell (in the manner provided for herein) the Personal Property Collateral. Each Borrower hereby grants to Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers, a license or other right to use, without charge, such Borrower's labels, patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service marks, and advertising matter, or any property of a similar nature, as it pertains to the Personal Property Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Personal Property Collateral and such Borrower's rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements shall inure to the Lender Group's benefit; (x) Sell the Personal Property Collateral at either a public or private sale, or both, by way of one or more contracts or transactions, for cash or on terms, in such manner and at such places (including Borrowers' premises) as Agent determines is commercially reasonable. It is not necessary that the Personal Property Collateral be present at any such sale; (xi) Agent shall give notice of the disposition of the Personal Property Collateral as follows: (A) Agent shall give Administrative Borrower (for the benefit of the applicable Borrower) a notice in writing of the time and place of public sale, or, if the sale is a private sale or some other disposition other than a public sale is to be made of the Personal Property Collateral, the time on or after which the private sale or other disposition is to be made; 104 (B) The notice shall be personally delivered or mailed, postage prepaid, to Administrative Borrower as provided in Section 12, at least 10 days before the earliest time of disposition set forth in the notice; no notice needs to be given prior to the disposition of any portion of the Personal Property Collateral that is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in value or that is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market; (C) Each Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that such notice, when given, shall constitute a reasonable "authenticated notification of disposition" within the meaning of Section 9-611 of the Uniform Commercial Code, as in effect from time to time in any applicable jurisdiction; (xii) Credit bid and purchase at any public sale; (xiii) Seek the appointment of a receiver or keeper to take possession of all or any portion of the Collateral or to operate same and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, may seek the appointment of such a receiver without the requirement of prior notice or a hearing; and (xiv) Cause any Loan Party to exercise any purchase right with respect to a Vehicle that such Loan Party may have at the termination of any TRAC Lease Transaction if Agent determines, in its Permitted Discretion, that such Loan Party has equity in such Vehicle. (b) Any deficiency that exists after disposition of the Personal Property Collateral as provided in Section 9.1(a) will be paid immediately by Borrowers. Any excess will be returned, without interest and subject to the rights of third Persons, by Agent to Administrative Borrower (for the benefit of the applicable Borrower). (c) Borrowers agree for themselves and on behalf of each of their Subsidiaries that it would not be commercially unreasonable for Agent to dispose of the Collateral or any portion thereof by using Internet sites that provide for the auction of assets of the types included in such Collateral or that have the reasonable capability of doing so, or that match buyers and sellers. 9.2 REMEDIES CUMULATIVE. The rights and remedies of the Lender Group under this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, and all other agreements shall be cumulative. The Lender Group shall have all other rights and remedies not inconsistent herewith as provided under any other Loan Document, the Code, by law, or in equity. No exercise by the Lender Group of one right or remedy shall be deemed an election, and no waiver by the Lender Group of any Event of Default shall be deemed a continuing waiver. No delay by the Lender Group shall constitute a waiver, election, or acquiescence by it. 10. TAXES AND EXPENSES. If any Borrower fails to pay any monies (whether taxes, assessments, insurance premiums, or, in the case of leased properties or assets, rents or other amounts payable under 105 such leases) due to third Persons, or fails to make any deposits or furnish any required proof of payment or deposit, all as required under the terms of this Agreement, then, Agent, in its sole discretion and without prior notice to any Borrower, may do any or all of the following, provided that, to the extent practicable, Agent shall give Administrative Borrower 10 days' prior notice before exercise: (a) make payment of the same or any part thereof, (b) set up such reserves in Borrowers' Loan Account as Agent deems necessary to protect the Lender Group from the exposure created by such failure, or (c) in the case of the failure to comply with Section 6.8 hereof, obtain and maintain insurance policies of the type described in Section 6.8 and take any action with respect to such policies as Agent deems prudent. Any such amounts paid by Agent shall constitute Lender Group Expenses and any such payments shall not constitute an agreement by the Lender Group to make similar payments in the future or a waiver by the Lender Group of any Event of Default under this Agreement. Agent need not inquire as to, or contest the validity of, any such expense, tax, or Lien and the receipt of the usual official notice for the payment thereof shall be conclusive evidence that the same was validly due and owing. 11. WAIVERS; INDEMNIFICATION. 11.1 DEMAND; PROTEST; ETC. Each Borrower waives demand, protest, notice of protest, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of documents, instruments, Chattel Paper, and guarantees at any time held by the Lender Group on which any such Borrower may in any way be liable. 11.2 THE LENDER GROUP'S LIABILITY FOR COLLATERAL. Each Borrower hereby agrees that: (a) so long as the Lender Group complies with its obligations, if any, under the Code, Agent shall not in any way or manner be liable or responsible for: (i) the safekeeping of the Collateral, (ii) any loss or damage thereto occurring or arising in any manner or fashion from any cause, (iii) any diminution in the value thereof, or (iv) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, forwarding agency, or other Person, and (b) all risk of loss, damage, or destruction of the Collateral shall be borne by Borrowers. 11.3 INDEMNIFICATION. Each Borrower shall pay, indemnify, defend, and hold the Agent-Related Persons, the Lender Related Persons with respect to each Lender, each Participant, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and attorneys-in-fact (each, an "Indemnified Person") harmless (to the fullest extent permitted by law) from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, actions, investigations, proceedings, and damages, and all reasonable attorneys fees and disbursements and other costs and expenses actually incurred in connection therewith (as and when they are incurred and irrespective of whether suit is brought), at any time asserted against, imposed upon, or incurred by any of them (a) in connection with or as a result of or related to the execution, delivery, enforcement, performance, or administration (including any restructuring or workout with respect hereto) of this Agreement, any of the other Loan Documents, or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or the monitoring of Borrowers' and their Subsidiaries' compliance with the terms of the Loan Documents, and (b) with respect to any investigation, litigation, or proceeding related to this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or the use of the proceeds of the credit provided hereunder (irrespective of whether any Indemnified Person is a party thereto), or any act, omission, event, or circumstance in any manner related thereto (all the foregoing, collectively, 106 the "Indemnified Liabilities"). The foregoing to the contrary notwithstanding, Borrowers shall have no obligation to any Indemnified Person under this Section 11.3 with respect to any Indemnified Liability that a court of competent jurisdiction finally determines to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Person. This provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the repayment of the Obligations. If any Indemnified Person makes any payment to any other Indemnified Person with respect to an Indemnified Liability as to which Borrowers were required to indemnify the Indemnified Person receiving such payment, the Indemnified Person making such payment is entitled to be indemnified and reimbursed by Borrowers with respect thereto. WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE FOREGOING INDEMNITY SHALL APPLY TO EACH INDEMNIFIED PERSON WITH RESPECT TO INDEMNIFIED LIABILITIES WHICH IN WHOLE OR IN PART ARE CAUSED BY OR ARISE OUT OF ANY NEGLIGENT ACT OR OMISSION OF SUCH INDEMNIFIED PERSON OR OF ANY OTHER PERSON. 12. NOTICES. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, all notices or demands by Borrowers or Agent to the other relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be in writing and (except for financial statements and other informational documents which may be sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid) shall be personally delivered or sent by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), overnight courier, electronic mail (at such email addresses as Administrative Borrower or Agent, as applicable, may designate to each other in accordance herewith), or telefacsimile to Borrowers in care of Administrative Borrower or to Agent, as the case may be, at its address set forth below: If to Administrative Borrower: AMERCO 1325 Airmotive Way, Suite 100 Reno, Nevada 89502-3239 Attn: Assistant Treasurer Fax No. 775.688.6338 107 with copies to: U-HAUL INTERNATIONAL, INC. 2727 North Central Phoenix, Arizona 85004 Attn: General Counsel Fax No. 602.263.6173 with copies to: SQUIRE, SANDERS & DEMPSEY, L.L.P.

CHOICE OF LAW AND VENUE; JURY TRIAL WAIVER. (a) THE VALIDITY OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS (UNLESS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED TO THE CONTRARY IN ANOTHER LOAN DOCUMENT IN RESPECT OF SUCH OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT), THE CONSTRUCTION, INTERPRETATION, AND ENFORCEMENT HEREOF AND THEREOF, AND THE RIGHTS OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND THERETO WITH RESPECT TO ALL MATTERS ARISING HEREUNDER OR THEREUNDER OR RELATED HERETO OR THERETO SHALL BE DETERMINED UNDER, GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, EXCEPT AS GOVERNED BY THE BANKRUPTCY CODE. (b) THE PARTIES AGREE THAT ALL ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS SHALL BE TRIED AND LITIGATED ONLY IN THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN THE COUNTY OF NEW YORK, STATE OF NEW YORK, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THE BANKRUPTCY COURT RETAINS JURISDICTION WITH RESPECT TO THE REORGANIZATION PLAN; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT ANY SUIT SEEKING ENFORCEMENT AGAINST ANY COLLATERAL OR OTHER PROPERTY MAY BE BROUGHT, AT AGENT'S OPTION, IN THE COURTS OF ANY JURISDICTION WHERE AGENT ELECTS TO BRING SUCH ACTION OR WHERE SUCH COLLATERAL OR OTHER PROPERTY MAY BE FOUND. BORROWERS AND THE LENDER GROUP WAIVE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, ANY RIGHT EACH MAY HAVE TO ASSERT THE DOCTRINE OF FORUM NON CONVENIENS OR TO OBJECT TO VENUE TO THE EXTENT ANY PROCEEDING IS BROUGHT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION 13(b). (c) BORROWERS AND THE LENDER GROUP HEREBY WAIVE THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED THEREIN, INCLUDING CONTRACT CLAIMS, TORT CLAIMS, BREACH OF DUTY CLAIMS, AND ALL OTHER COMMON LAW OR STATUTORY CLAIMS. BORROWERS AND THE LENDER GROUP REPRESENT THAT EACH HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER AND EACH KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVES ITS JURY TRIAL RIGHTS FOLLOWING CONSULTATION WITH LEGAL COUNSEL. IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, A COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE FILED AS A WRITTEN CONSENT TO A TRIAL BY THE COURT. 14. ASSIGNMENTS AND PARTICIPATIONS; SUCCESSORS. 14.1 ASSIGNMENTS AND PARTICIPATIONS. (a) Any Lender may, with the written consent of Agent (provided that no written consent of Agent shall be required in connection with any assignment and delegation by a Lender to an Eligible Transferee), assign and delegate to one or more assignees (each an "Assignee") all, or any ratable part of all, of the Obligations (other than Bank Product 109 Obligations), the Commitments and the other rights and obligations of such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, in a minimum amount of $5,000,000 (except that such minimum amount shall not apply to an Affiliate of a Lender or to a Related Fund or to an assignment of all of such Lender's rights and obligations); provided, however, that Borrowers and Agent may continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with the interest so assigned to an Assignee until (i) written notice of such assignment, together with payment instructions, addresses, and related information with respect to the Assignee, have been given to Administrative Borrower and Agent by such Lender and the Assignee, (ii) such Lender and its Assignee have delivered to Administrative Borrower and Agent an Assignment and Acceptance in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent, and (iii) the assignor Lender or Assignee has paid to Agent for Agent's separate account a processing fee in the amount of $5,000. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the consent of Agent shall not be required (and payment of any fees shall not be required) if (x) such assignment is in connection with any merger, consolidation, sale, transfer, or other disposition of all or any substantial portion of the business or loan portfolio of such Lender or (y) the assignee is an Affiliate (other than individual(s)) of a Lender or a Related Fund. Furthermore, for the avoidance of doubt, any assignment or delegation of any Bank Product Agreement may be effected by the parties thereto without the consent of the Lender Group. (b) Subject to recordation in accordance with Section 14.1(h) below, from and after the date that Agent notifies the assignor Lender (with a copy to Administrative Borrower) that it has received an executed Assignment and Acceptance and payment of the above-referenced processing fee, as applicable, (i) the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender under the Loan Documents, and (ii) the assignor Lender shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, relinquish its rights (except with respect to Section 11.3 hereof) and be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto and thereto), and such assignment shall effect a novation between Borrowers and the Assignee; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall release any assigning Lender from obligations that survive the termination of this Agreement, including such assigning Lender's obligations under Section 16 and Section 17.8 of this Agreement. (c) By executing and delivering an Assignment and Acceptance, the assigning Lender thereunder and the Assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows: (i) other than as provided in such Assignment and Acceptance, such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other Loan Document furnished pursuant hereto, (ii) such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to the financial condition of Borrowers or the performance or observance by Borrowers of any of their obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document furnished pursuant hereto, (iii) such Assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, together with such other 110 documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Acceptance, (iv) such Assignee will, independently and without reliance upon Agent, such assigning Lender or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement, (v) such Assignee appoints and authorizes Agent to take such actions and to exercise such powers under this Agreement as are delegated to Agent, by the terms hereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, and (vi) such Assignee agrees that it will perform all of the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement are required to be performed by it as a Lender. (d) Immediately upon each Assignee's making its processing fee payment under the Assignment and Acceptance and receipt and acknowledgment by Agent of such fully executed Assignment and Acceptance, this Agreement shall be deemed to be amended to the extent, but only to the extent, necessary to reflect the addition of the Assignee and the resulting adjustment of the Commitments arising therefrom. The Commitment allocated to each Assignee shall reduce such Commitments of the assigning Lender pro tanto. (e) Any Lender may at any time sell to one or more commercial banks, financial institutions, or other Persons not Affiliates of such Lender (a "Participant") participating interests in its Obligations, the Commitment, and the other rights and interests of that Lender (the "Originating Lender") hereunder and under the other Loan Documents; provided, however, that (i) the Originating Lender shall remain a "Lender" for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the Participant receiving the participating interest in the Obligations, the Commitments, and the other rights and interests of the Originating Lender hereunder shall not constitute a "Lender" hereunder or under the other Loan Documents and the Originating Lender's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) the Originating Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations, (iii) Borrowers, Agent, and the Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with the Originating Lender in connection with the Originating Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, (iv) no Lender shall transfer or grant any participating interest under which the Participant has the right to approve any amendment to, or any consent or waiver with respect to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, except to the extent such amendment to, or consent or waiver with respect to this Agreement or of any other Loan Document would (1) extend the final maturity date of the Obligations hereunder in which such Participant is participating, (2) reduce the interest rate applicable to the Obligations hereunder in which such Participant is participating, (3) release all or substantially all of the Collateral or guaranties (except to the extent expressly provided herein or in any of the Loan Documents) supporting the Obligations hereunder in which such Participant is participating, (4) postpone the payment of, or reduce the amount of, the interest or fees payable to such Participant through such Lender, or (5) change the amount or due dates of scheduled principal repayments or prepayments or premiums, and (v) all amounts payable by Borrowers hereunder shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold such participation; except that, if amounts outstanding under this Agreement are due and unpaid, or shall have been declared or shall have become due and payable upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of set-off in respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under this Agreement to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Lender under this Agreement. The rights of any Participant shall only be derivative 111 through the Originating Lender with whom such Participant participates and no Participant shall have any rights under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or any direct rights as to the other Lenders, Agent, Borrowers, the Collections, the Collateral, or otherwise in respect of the Obligations. No Participant shall have the right to participate directly in the making of decisions by the Lenders among themselves. (f) Pursuant to Section 17.10, if any proposed assignee or participant has agreed in writing to receive any documents or information subject to the confidentiality provisions contained in this Agreement, in connection with any such assignment or participation or proposed assignment or participation, a Lender may disclose all documents and information which it now or hereafter may have relating to Borrowers or Borrowers' business. (g) Any other provision in this Agreement notwithstanding, any Lender (i) may at any time create a security interest in, or pledge, all or any portion of its rights under and interest in this Agreement in favor of any Federal Reserve Bank in accordance with Regulation A of the Federal Reserve Bank or United States Treasury Regulation 31 C.F.R. SECTION 203.14, and such Federal Reserve Bank may enforce such pledge or security interest in any manner permitted under Applicable Laws, and (ii) that is a Fund may at any time create a security interest in, or pledge, all or any portion of its rights under and interest in this Agreement to its trustee to support its obligations to its trustee, on behalf of the holders of such obligations. (h) Subject to the last sentence of this Section 14.1(h), Agent shall maintain, or cause to be maintained, a register (the "Register") on which it enters the name of a Lender as the registered owner of each Advance, as the case may be, held by such Lender. A Registered Loan (and the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) may be assigned or sold in whole or in part only by registration of such assignment or sale on the Register (and each Registered Note shall expressly so provide). Subject to the last sentence of this Section 14.1(h), any assignment or sale of all or part of such Registered Loan (and the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) may be effected only by registration of such assignment or sale on the Register, together with the surrender of the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same duly endorsed by (or accompanied by a written instrument of assignment or sale duly executed by) the holder of such Registered Note, whereupon, at the request of the designated assignee(s) or transferee(s), one or more new Registered Notes in the same aggregate principal amount shall be issued to the designated assignee(s) or transferee(s). Prior to the registration of an assignment or sale of any Registered Loan (and the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same), Borrowers, Agent and the Lenders shall treat the Person in whose name such Registered Loan (and the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) is registered as the owner thereof for the purpose of receiving all payments thereon and for all other purposes, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. In the case of an assignment or delegation covered by Section 14.1(a)(y), the assigning Lender shall maintain a register comparable to the Register on behalf of Agent. (i) In the event that a Lender sells participations in a Registered Loan, such Lender shall maintain a register on which it enters the name of all participants in the Registered Loans held by it (the "Participant Register"). A Registered Loan (and the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) may be participated in whole or in part only by registration of such participation on the Participant Register (and each Registered Note shall expressly so provide). 112 Any participation of such Registered Loan (and the Registered Note, if any, evidencing the same) may be effected only by the registration of such participation on the Participant Register. (j) Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, the Lenders hereby consent to any Lender's pledge (a "Pledge") of its interest in the Obligations, the Commitment, and the other rights and interests of that Lender (a "Loan Pledgor") to any Eligible Transferee that has extended a credit facility to such Loan Pledgor (a "Loan Pledgee"), on the terms and conditions set forth in this paragraph. Upon written notice by any Loan Pledgor to Agent that the Pledge has been effected, Agent agrees to acknowledge receipt of such notice and thereafter agrees: (a) to use its best efforts to give Loan Pledgee written notice of any default by Loan Pledgor under this Agreement and any amendment, modification, waiver or termination of Loan Pledgor's rights under this Agreement; provided, however, Agent shall not have any liability to Loan Pledgee if Agent fails to give such notice; (b) that Agent shall deliver, at the expense of Loan Pledgor, to Loan Pledgee such information available to the Lenders hereunder as Loan Pledgee shall reasonably request; and (c) that, upon written notice (a "Redirection Notice") to Agent by Loan Pledgee that Loan Pledgor is in default, beyond applicable cure periods, under Loan Pledgor's obligations to Loan Pledgee pursuant to the applicable credit agreement between Loan Pledgor and Loan Pledgee (which notice need not be joined in or confirmed by all Lenders), and until such Redirection Notice is withdrawn or rescinded by Loan Pledgee, any payments to which Loan Pledgor is entitled from time to time pursuant to this Agreement, or any other Loan Document, shall be paid or directed to Loan Pledgee. The relevant Loan Pledgor hereby unconditionally and absolutely releases Agent and the other Lenders from any liability to the such Loan Pledgor on account of Agent's or any Lender's compliance with any Redirection Notice reasonably believed by Agent or the Lenders to have been delivered in good faith. Loan Pledgee shall be permitted fully to exercise its rights and remedies against the relevant Loan Pledgor, and realize on any and all collateral granted by such Loan Pledgor to Loan Pledgee (and accept an assignment in lieu of foreclosure as to such collateral), in accordance with Applicable Laws and the provisions of this Agreement. In such event, Agent and the Lenders shall recognize Loan Pledgee, and its successors and assigns that are Eligible Transferees, as the successor to the applicable Loan Pledgor's rights, remedies and obligations under this Agreement and the Loan Documents. The rights of Loan Pledgee under this paragraph shall remain effective unless and until such Loan Pledgee shall have notified Agent in writing that its interest in the Obligations, the Commitment, and the other rights and interests of the relevant Loan Pledgor has terminated. 14.2 SUCCESSORS. This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of each of the parties hereto including, with respect to each Borrower, the estate of such Borrower, any trustee or successor-in-interest in an Insolvency Proceeding; provided, however, that Borrowers may not assign this Agreement or any rights or duties hereunder without the Lenders' prior written consent and any prohibited assignment shall be absolutely void ab initio. No consent to assignment by the Lenders shall release any Borrower from its Obligations. A Lender may assign this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and its rights and duties hereunder and thereunder pursuant to Section 14.1 hereof and, except as expressly required pursuant to Section 14.1 hereof, no consent or approval by any Borrower is required in connection with any such assignment. 113 15. AMENDMENTS; WAIVERS. 15.1 AMENDMENTS AND WAIVERS. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, and no consent with respect to any departure by Borrowers therefrom, shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Required Lenders (or by Agent at the written request of the Required Lenders) and Administrative Borrower (on behalf of all Borrowers) and then any such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given; provided, however, that no such waiver, amendment, or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by all of the Lenders affected thereby and Administrative Borrower (on behalf of all Borrowers) and acknowledged by Agent, do any of the following: (a) increase or extend any Commitment of any Lender, (b) postpone or delay any date fixed by this Agreement or any other Loan Document for any payment of principal, interest, fees, or other amounts due hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (c) reduce the principal of, or the rate of interest on, any loan or other extension of credit hereunder, or reduce any fees or other amounts payable hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (d) change the percentage of the Commitments that is required to take any action hereunder, (e) amend, modify or waive this Section or any provision of the Agreement providing for consent or other action by all Lenders, (f) release Collateral other than as permitted by Section 16.12, (g) change the definition of "Required Lenders" or "Pro Rata Share", (h) contractually subordinate any of the Agent's Liens, (i) release any Borrower or any material Guarantor from any obligation for the payment of money, (j) change the definitions of Availability, Bank Product Reserves, Borrowing Base, Fair Market Valuation, Maximum Revolver Amount, or Term Loan Amount or amend, modify or waive any of the provisions of Section 2.1(a), Section 2.1(b), Section 2.2, Section 2.3(e), Section 2.3(i), Section 2.4(b) or Section 2.5, or (k) amend, modify or waive any of the provisions of Section 16. and, provided further, however, that no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by Agent, Issuing Lender, or Swing Lender, affect the rights or duties of Agent, Issuing Lender, or Swing Lender, as applicable, under this Agreement or any other Loan Document. The foregoing notwithstanding, any amendment, modification, waiver, consent, 114 termination, or release of, or with respect to, any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document that relates only to the relationship of the Lender Group among themselves, and that does not affect the rights or obligations of Borrowers, shall not require consent by or the agreement of Borrowers. Furthermore, for the avoidance of doubt, any amendment, modification, waiver, consent, termination, or release of, or with respect to, any provision of any Bank Product Agreement may be effected by the parties thereto without the consent of the Lender Group. 15.2 REPLACEMENT OF HOLDOUT LENDER. If any action to be taken by the Lender Group or Agent hereunder requires the unanimous consent, authorization, or agreement of all Lenders, and a Lender ("Holdout Lender") fails to give its consent, authorization, or agreement, then Agent, upon at least 5 Business Days prior irrevocable notice to the Holdout Lender, may permanently replace the Holdout Lender with one or more substitute Lenders (each, a "Replacement Lender"), and the Holdout Lender shall have no right to refuse to be replaced hereunder. Such notice to replace the Holdout Lender shall specify an effective date for such replacement, which date shall not be later than 15 Business Days after the date such notice is given. Prior to the effective date of such replacement, the Holdout Lender and each Replacement Lender shall execute and deliver an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, subject only to the Holdout Lender's being repaid its share of the outstanding Obligations (including an assumption of its Pro Rata Share of the Risk Participation Liability) without any premium or penalty of any kind whatsoever. If the Holdout Lender shall refuse or fail to execute and deliver any such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement prior to the effective date of such replacement, the Holdout Lender shall be deemed to have executed and delivered such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement. The replacement of any Holdout Lender shall be made in accordance with the terms of Section 14.1. Until such time as the Replacement Lenders shall have acquired all of the Obligations, the Commitments, and the other rights and obligations of the Holdout Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the Holdout Lender shall remain obligated to make the Holdout Lender's Pro Rata Share of Advances and to purchase a participation in each Letter of Credit, in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the Risk Participation Liability of such Letter of Credit. 15.3 NO WAIVERS; CUMULATIVE REMEDIES. No failure by Agent or any Lender to exercise any right, remedy, or option under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or delay by Agent or any Lender in exercising the same, will operate as a waiver thereof. No waiver by Agent or any Lender will be effective unless it is in writing, and then only to the extent specifically stated. No waiver by Agent or any Lender on any occasion shall affect or diminish Agent's and each Lender's rights thereafter to require strict performance by Borrowers of any provision of this Agreement. Agent's and each Lender's rights under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents will be cumulative and not exclusive of any other right or remedy that Agent or any Lender may have. 15.4 WP CAREY TRANSACTION. Each Loan Party, each Lender and Agent hereby stipulate and agree that in the event the Required Lenders approve the terms and conditions of any transaction constituting the WP Carey Transaction, any special purpose entity formed by a Loan Party after the Closing Date solely for the purpose of consummating such WP Carey 115 Transaction, as approved, shall not be subject to the representations, warranties and covenants in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. 16. AGENT; THE LENDER GROUP. 16.1 APPOINTMENT AND AUTHORIZATION OF AGENT. Each Lender hereby designates and appoints Foothill as its representative under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (other than the Bank Product Agreements) and each Lender hereby irrevocably authorizes Agent to execute and deliver each of the other Loan Documents (other than the Bank Product Agreements) on its behalf and to take such other action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and each other Loan Document (other than the Bank Product Agreements) and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to Agent by the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Agent agrees to act as such on the express conditions contained in this Section 16. The provisions of this Section 16 are solely for the benefit of Agent, and the Lenders, and Borrowers shall have no rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions contained herein. Any provision to the contrary contained elsewhere in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document notwithstanding, Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein, nor shall Agent have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Lender, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or any other Loan Document or otherwise exist against Agent; it being expressly understood and agreed that the use of the word "Agent" is for convenience only, that Foothill is merely the representative of the Lenders, and only has the contractual duties set forth herein. Except as expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement, Agent shall have and may use its sole discretion with respect to exercising or refraining from exercising any discretionary rights or taking or refraining from taking any actions that Agent expressly is entitled to take or assert under or pursuant to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, or of any other provision of the Loan Documents that provides rights or powers to Agent, Lenders agree that Agent shall have the right to exercise the following powers as long as this Agreement remains in effect: (a) maintain, in accordance with its customary business practices, ledgers and records reflecting the status of the Obligations, the Collateral, the Collections, and related matters, (b) execute or file any and all financing or similar statements or notices, amendments, renewals, supplements, documents, instruments, proofs of claim, notices and other written agreements with respect to the Loan Documents, (c) make Advances, for itself or on behalf of Lenders as provided in the Loan Documents, (d) exclusively receive, apply, and distribute the Collections as provided in the Loan Documents, (e) open and maintain such bank accounts and cash management accounts as Agent deems necessary and appropriate in accordance with the Loan Documents for the foregoing purposes with respect to the Collateral and the Collections, (f) perform, exercise, and enforce any and all other rights and remedies of the Lender Group with respect to Borrowers, the Obligations, the Collateral, the Collections, or otherwise related to any of same as provided in the Loan Documents, and (g) incur and pay such Lender Group Expenses as Agent may deem necessary or appropriate for the performance and fulfillment of its functions and powers pursuant to the Loan Documents. 16.2 DELEGATION OF DUTIES. Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement or any other Loan Document by or through agents, employees or attorneys-in-fact and shall be 116 entitled to advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agent or attorney-in-fact that it selects as long as such selection was made without gross negligence or willful misconduct. 16.3 LIABILITY OF AGENT. None of the Agent-Related Persons shall (i) be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by any of them under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the transactions contemplated hereby (except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct), or (ii) be responsible in any manner to any of the Lenders for any recital, statement, representation or warranty made by any Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of any Borrower, or any officer or director thereof, contained in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document, or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by Agent under or in connection with, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or the validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or for any failure of any Borrower or any other party to any Loan Document to perform its obligations hereunder or thereunder. No Agent-Related Person shall be under any obligation to any Lender to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or to inspect the Books or properties of Borrowers or the books or records or properties of any of Borrowers' Subsidiaries or Affiliates. 16.4 RELIANCE BY AGENT. Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, telegram, facsimile, telex or telephone message, statement or other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent, or made by the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel (including counsel to Borrowers or counsel to any Lender), independent accountants and other experts selected by Agent. Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement or any other Loan Document unless Agent shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Lenders as it deems appropriate and until such instructions are received, Agent shall act, or refrain from acting, as it deems advisable. If Agent so requests, it shall first be indemnified to its reasonable satisfaction by Lenders against any and all liability and expense that may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement or any other Loan Document in accordance with a request or consent of the requisite Lenders and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all of the Lenders. 16.5 NOTICE OF DEFAULT OR EVENT OF DEFAULT. Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, except with respect to defaults in the payment of principal, interest, fees, and expenses required to be paid to Agent for the account of the Lenders, except with respect to Defaults and Events of Default of which Agent has actual knowledge, unless Agent shall have received written notice from a Lender or Administrative Borrower referring to this Agreement, describing such Default or Event of Default, and stating that such notice is a "notice of default." Agent promptly will notify the Lenders of its receipt of any such notice or of any Event of Default of which Agent has actual knowledge. If any Lender obtains actual knowledge of any Event of Default, such Lender promptly shall notify the other Lenders and Agent of such Event of Default. Each Lender shall be solely responsible for giving any notices to its Participants, if any. Subject to Section 16.4, 117 Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default or Event of Default as may be requested by the Required Lenders in accordance with Section 9; provided, however, that unless and until Agent has received any such request, 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. 16.6 CREDIT DECISION. Each Lender acknowledges that none of the Agent-Related Persons has made any representation or warranty to it, and that no act by Agent hereinafter taken, including any review of the affairs of Borrowers and their Subsidiaries or Affiliates, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by any Agent-Related Person to any Lender. Each Lender represents to Agent that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of Borrowers and any other Person party to a Loan Document, and all applicable bank regulatory laws relating to the transactions contemplated hereby, and made its own decision to enter into this Agreement and to extend credit to Borrowers. Each Lender also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and to make such investigations as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of Borrowers and any other Person party to a Loan Document. Except for notices, reports, and other documents expressly herein required to be furnished to the Lenders by Agent, Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of Borrowers and any other Person party to a Loan Document that may come into the possession of any of the Agent-Related Persons. 16.7 COSTS AND EXPENSES; INDEMNIFICATION. Agent may incur and pay Lender Group Expenses to the extent Agent reasonably deems necessary or appropriate for the performance and fulfillment of its functions, powers, and obligations pursuant to the Loan Documents, including court costs, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, fees and expenses of financial accountants, advisors, consultants and appraisers, costs of collection by outside collection agencies and auctioneer fees and expenses and costs of security guards or insurance premiums paid to maintain the Collateral, whether or not Borrowers are obligated to reimburse Agent or Lenders for such expenses pursuant to the Loan Agreement or otherwise. Agent is authorized and directed to deduct and retain sufficient amounts from Collections received by Agent to reimburse Agent for such out-of-pocket costs and expenses prior to the distribution of any amounts to Lenders. In the event Agent is not reimbursed for such costs and expenses from Collections received by Agent, each Lender hereby agrees that it is and shall be obligated to pay to or reimburse Agent for the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share thereof. Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, the Lenders shall indemnify upon demand the Agent-Related Persons (to the extent not reimbursed by or on behalf of Borrowers and without limiting the obligation of Borrowers to do so), according to their Pro Rata Shares, from and against any and all Indemnified Liabilities; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for the payment to any Agent-Related Person of any portion of such Indemnified Liabilities 118 resulting solely from such Person's gross negligence or willful misconduct nor shall any Lender be liable for the obligations of any Defaulting Lender in failing to make an Advance or other extension of credit hereunder. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Lender shall reimburse Agent upon demand for such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any costs or out-of-pocket expenses (including attorneys fees and expenses) incurred by Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment, or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any document contemplated by or referred to herein, to the extent that Agent is not reimbursed for such expenses by or on behalf of Borrowers. The undertaking in this Section shall survive the payment of all Obligations hereunder and the resignation or replacement of Agent. 16.8 AGENT IN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY. The Lenders hereby acknowledge and agree that Foothill and its Affiliates may make loans to (including, without limitation, pursuant to the Term Loan B Note Documents), issue letters of credit for the account of, accept deposits from, acquire equity interests in, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust, financial advisory, underwriting, or other business with Borrowers and their Subsidiaries and Affiliates and any other Person party to any Loan Documents as though Foothill were not Agent hereunder, and, in each case, without notice to or consent of the other members of the Lender Group. The other members of the Lender Group acknowledge that, pursuant to such activities, Foothill or its Affiliates may receive information regarding Borrowers or their Affiliates and any other Person party to any Loan Documents that is subject to confidentiality obligations in favor of Borrowers or such other Person and that prohibit the disclosure of such information to the Lenders, and the Lenders acknowledge that, in such circumstances (and in the absence of a waiver of such confidentiality obligations, which waiver Agent will use its reasonable best efforts to obtain), Agent shall not be under any obligation to provide such information to them. The terms "Lender" and "Lenders" include Foothill in its individual capacity. 16.9 SUCCESSOR AGENT. Agent may resign as Agent upon 45 days' notice to the Lenders (and at least 15 days notice to Administrative Borrower). If Agent resigns under this Agreement, the Required Lenders shall appoint a successor Agent for the Lenders. If no successor Agent is appointed prior to the effective date of the resignation of Agent, Agent may appoint, after consulting with the Lenders, a successor Agent. If Agent has materially breached or failed to perform any material provision of this Agreement or of Applicable Laws, the Required Lenders may agree in writing to remove and replace Agent with a successor Agent from among the Lenders. In any such event, upon the acceptance of its appointment as successor Agent hereunder, such successor Agent shall succeed to all the rights, powers, and duties of the retiring Agent and the term "Agent" shall mean such successor Agent and the retiring Agent's appointment, powers, and duties as Agent shall be terminated. After any retiring Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Section 16 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement. If no successor Agent has accepted appointment as Agent by the date which is 45 days following a retiring Agent's notice of resignation, the retiring Agent's resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Lenders shall perform all of the duties of Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Lenders appoint a successor Agent as provided for above. 119 16.10 LENDER IN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY. Any Lender and its respective Affiliates may make loans to, issue letters of credit for the account of, accept deposits from, acquire equity interests in and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust, financial advisory, underwriting or other business with Borrowers and their Subsidiaries and Affiliates and any other Person party to any Loan Documents as though such Lender were not a Lender hereunder without notice to or consent of the other members of the Lender Group. The other members of the Lender Group acknowledge that, pursuant to such activities, such Lender and its respective Affiliates may receive information regarding Borrowers or their Affiliates and any other Person (other than the Lender Group) party to any Loan Documents that is subject to confidentiality obligations in favor of Borrowers or such other Person and that prohibit the disclosure of such information to the Lenders, and the Lenders acknowledge that, in such circumstances (and in the absence of a waiver of such confidentiality obligations, which waiver such Lender will use its reasonable best efforts to obtain), such Lender not shall be under any obligation to provide such information to them. With respect to the Swing Loans and Agent Advances, Swing Lender shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the sub-agent of the Agent. 16.11 WITHHOLDING TAXES. (a) If any Lender is a "foreign person" within the meaning of the IRC and such Lender claims exemption from, or a reduction of, United States withholding tax under Sections 1441 or 1442 of the IRC, such Lender agrees with and in favor of Agent and Borrowers, to deliver to Agent and Administrative Borrower: (i) if such Lender claims an exemption from withholding tax pursuant to its portfolio interest exception, (1) a statement of the Lender, signed under penalty of perjury, that it is not a (A) a "bank" as described in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the IRC, (B) a 10% shareholder of a Borrower (within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the IRC), or (C) a controlled foreign corporation related to a Borrower within the meaning of 864(d)(4) of the IRC, and (2) a properly completed and executed IRS Form W-8BEN, before the first payment of any interest under this Agreement and at any other time reasonably requested by Agent or Administrative Borrower; (ii) if such Lender claims an exemption from, or a reduction of, withholding tax under a United States tax treaty, properly completed and executed IRS Form W-8BEN before the first payment of any interest under this Agreement and at any other time reasonably requested by Agent or Administrative Borrower; (iii) if such Lender claims that interest paid under this Agreement is exempt from United States withholding tax because it is effectively connected with a United States trade or business of such Lender, two properly completed and executed copies of IRS Form W-8ECI before the first payment of any interest is due under this Agreement and at any other time reasonably requested by Agent or Administrative Borrower; and 120 (iv) such other form or forms as may be required under the IRC or other laws of the United States as a condition to exemption from, or reduction of, United States withholding tax. Such Lender agrees promptly to notify Agent and Administrative Borrower of any change in circumstances which would modify or render invalid any claimed exemption or reduction. (b) If any Lender claims exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax under a United States tax treaty by providing IRS Form W-8BEN and such Lender sells, assigns, grants a participation in, or otherwise transfers all or part of the Obligations of Borrowers to such Lender, such Lender agrees to notify Agent of the percentage amount in which it is no longer the beneficial owner of Obligations of Borrowers to such Lender. To the extent of such percentage amount, Agent will treat such Lender's IRS Form W-8BEN as no longer valid. (c) If any Lender is entitled to a reduction in the applicable withholding tax, Agent may withhold from any interest payment to such Lender an amount equivalent to the applicable withholding tax after taking into account such reduction. If the forms or other documentation required by subsection (a) of this Section are not delivered to Agent, then Agent may withhold from any interest payment to such Lender not providing such forms or other documentation an amount equivalent to the applicable withholding tax. (d) If the IRS or any other Governmental Authority of the United States or other jurisdiction asserts a claim that Agent did not properly withhold tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender (because the appropriate form was not delivered, was not properly executed, or because such Lender failed to notify Agent of a change in circumstances which rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax ineffective, or for any other reason) such Lender shall indemnify and hold Agent harmless for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by Agent as tax or otherwise, including penalties and interest, and including any taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on the amounts payable to Agent under this Section, together with all costs and expenses (including attorneys fees and expenses). The obligation of the Lenders under this subsection shall survive the payment of all Obligations and the resignation or replacement of Agent. (e) All payments made by Borrowers hereunder or under any note or other Loan Document will be made without setoff, counterclaim, or other defense, except as required by Applicable Laws other than for Taxes (as defined below). All such payments will be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, any present or future taxes, levies, imposts, duties, fees, assessments or other charges of whatever nature now or hereafter imposed by any jurisdiction (other than the United States) or by any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein (other than of the United States) with respect to such payments (but excluding, any tax imposed by any jurisdiction or by any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein (i) measured by or based on the net income or net profits of a Lender, or (ii) to the extent that such tax results from a change in the circumstances of the Lender, including a change in the residence, place of organization, or principal place of business of the Lender, or a change in the branch or lending office of the Lender participating in the transactions set forth herein) and all interest, penalties or similar liabilities with respect thereto (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, duties, fees, assessments or other charges being referred to collectively as 121 "Taxes"). If any Taxes are so levied or imposed, each Borrower agrees to pay the full amount of such Taxes, and such additional amounts as may be necessary so that every payment of all amounts due under this Agreement or under any note, including any amount paid pursuant to this Section 16.11(e) after withholding or deduction for or on account of any Taxes, will not be less than the amount provided for herein; provided, however, that Borrowers shall not be required to increase any such amounts payable to Agent or any Lender (i) that is not organized under the laws of the United States, if such Person fails to comply with the other requirements of this Section 16.11, or (ii) if the increase in such amount payable results from Agent's or such Lender's own willful misconduct or gross negligence. Borrowers will furnish to Agent as promptly as possible after the date the payment of any Taxes is due pursuant to Applicable Laws certified copies of tax receipts evidencing such payment by Borrowers. 16.12 COLLATERAL MATTERS. (a) The Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize Agent, at its option and in its sole discretion, to release any Lien on any Collateral (i) upon the termination of the Commitments and payment and satisfaction in full by Borrowers of all Obligations, (ii) constituting property being sold or disposed of if a release is required or desirable in connection therewith and if Administrative Borrower certifies to Agent that the sale or disposition is permitted under Section 7.4 of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents (and Agent may rely conclusively on any such certificate, without further inquiry), (iii) constituting property in which no Borrower and its Subsidiaries owned any interest at the time the Agent's Lien was granted or at any time thereafter, or (iv) constituting property leased to a Borrower and its Subsidiaries under a lease that has expired or is terminated in a transaction permitted under this Agreement. Except as provided above, Agent will not execute and deliver a release of any Lien on any Collateral without the prior written authorization of (y) if the release is of all or any substantial portion of the Collateral (which shall be deemed to include sales or other dispositions of Collateral with a Fair Market Valuation in excess of $35,000,000 over the Fair Market Valuation of the Collateral that may be sold or otherwise disposed of under Section 7.4 hereof), all of the Lenders, or (z) otherwise, the Required Lenders. Upon request by Agent or Administrative Borrower at any time, the Lenders will confirm in writing Agent's authority to release any such Liens on particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to this Section 16.12; provided, however, that (1) Agent shall not be required to execute any document necessary to evidence such release on terms that, in Agent's opinion, would expose Agent to liability or create any obligation or entail any consequence other than the release of such Lien without recourse, representation, or warranty, and (2) such release shall not in any manner discharge, affect, or impair the Obligations or any Liens (other than those expressly being released) upon (or obligations of Borrowers in respect of) all interests retained by Borrowers, including, the proceeds of any sale, all of which shall continue to constitute part of the Collateral. (b) Agent shall have no obligation whatsoever to any of the Lenders to assure that the Collateral exists or is owned by Borrowers or Guarantors or is cared for, protected, or insured or has been encumbered, or that the Agent's Liens have been properly or sufficiently or lawfully created, perfected, protected, or enforced or are entitled to any particular priority, or to exercise at all or in any particular manner or under any duty of care, disclosure or fidelity, or to continue exercising, any of the rights, authorities and powers granted or available to Agent pursuant to any of the Loan Documents, it being understood and agreed that in respect of the 122 Collateral, or any act, omission, or event related thereto, subject to the terms and conditions contained herein, Agent may act in any manner it may deem appropriate, in its sole discretion given Agent's own interest in the Collateral in its capacity as one of the Lenders and that Agent shall have no other duty or liability whatsoever to any Lender as to any of the foregoing, except as otherwise provided herein. (c) Notwithstanding any provision in the Loan Documents to the contrary, the Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize Agent, and Agent hereby agrees that it shall, upon the written request of Administrative Borrower, execute, have acknowledged as appropriate, and deliver to Administrative Borrower such release documents as are reasonably necessary or appropriate under the circumstances to effect the release of any Collateral to the extent the sale of such Collateral is permitted under this Agreement. Agent shall deliver any such release documents to Administrative Borrower (or, if applicable, any closing attorney) to hold in escrow pending the closing of the related transaction. In the event the closing of such transaction does not occur, Administrative Borrower shall promptly return to Agent the release documents executed and delivered by Agent. 16.13 RESTRICTIONS ON ACTIONS BY LENDERS; SHARING OF PAYMENTS. (a) Each of the Lenders agrees that it shall not, without the express written consent of Agent, and that it shall, to the extent it is lawfully entitled to do so, upon the written request of Agent, set off against the Obligations, any amounts owing by such Lender to Borrowers or any Deposit Accounts of Borrowers now or hereafter maintained with such Lender. Each of the Lenders further agrees that it shall not, unless specifically requested to do so in writing by Agent, take or cause to be taken any action, including, the commencement of any legal or equitable proceedings, to foreclose any Lien on, or otherwise enforce any security interest in, any of the Collateral. (b) If, at any time or times any Lender shall receive (i) by payment, foreclosure, setoff, or otherwise, any proceeds of Collateral or any payments with respect to the Obligations, except for any such proceeds or payments received by such Lender from Agent pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, or (ii) payments from Agent in excess of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of all such distributions by Agent, such Lender promptly shall (1) turn the same over to Agent, in kind, and with such endorsements as may be required to negotiate the same to Agent, or in immediately available funds, as applicable, for the account of all of the Lenders and for application to the Obligations in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement, or (2) purchase, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in the Obligations owed to the other Lenders so that such excess payment received shall be applied ratably as among the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares; provided, however, that if all or part of such excess payment received by the purchasing party is thereafter recovered from it, those purchases of participations shall be rescinded in whole or in part, as applicable, and the applicable portion of the purchase price paid therefor shall be returned to such purchasing party, but without interest except to the extent that such purchasing party is required to pay interest in connection with the recovery of the excess payment. 16.14 AGENCY FOR PERFECTION. Agent hereby appoints each other Lender as its agent (and each Lender hereby accepts such appointment) for the purpose of perfecting the Agent's 123 Liens in assets which, in accordance with Article 9 of the Code can be perfected only by possession or control. Should any Lender obtain possession or control of any such Collateral, such Lender shall notify Agent thereof, and, promptly upon Agent's request therefor shall deliver possession or control of such Collateral to Agent or in accordance with Agent's instructions. 16.15 PAYMENTS BY AGENT TO THE LENDERS. All payments to be made by Agent to the Lenders shall be made by bank wire transfer or internal transfer of immediately available funds pursuant to such wire transfer instructions as each party may designate for itself by written notice to Agent. Concurrently with each such payment, Agent shall identify whether such payment (or any portion thereof) represents principal, premium, or interest of the Obligations. 16.16 CONCERNING THE COLLATERAL AND RELATED LOAN DOCUMENTS. Each member of the Lender Group authorizes and directs Agent to enter into this Agreement and the other Loan Documents relating to the Collateral, for the benefit of the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers. Each member of the Lender Group agrees that any action taken by Agent in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents relating to the Collateral and the exercise by Agent of its powers set forth therein or herein, together with such other powers that are reasonably incidental thereto, shall be binding upon all of the Lenders. 16.17 FIELD AUDITS AND EXAMINATION REPORTS; CONFIDENTIALITY; DISCLAIMERS BY LENDERS; OTHER REPORTS AND INFORMATION. By becoming a party to this Agreement, each Lender: (a) is deemed to have requested that Agent furnish such Lender, promptly after it becomes available, a copy of each field audit or examination report (each a "Report" and collectively, "Reports") prepared by or at the request of Agent, and Agent shall so furnish each Lender with such Reports, (b) expressly agrees and acknowledges that Agent does not (i) make any representation or warranty as to the accuracy of any Report, and (ii) shall not be liable for any information contained in any Report, (c) expressly agrees and acknowledges that the Reports are not comprehensive audits or examinations, that Agent or other party performing any audit or examination will inspect only specific information regarding Borrowers and will rely significantly upon Loan Parties' Books, as well as on representations of Borrowers' personnel, (d) agrees to keep all Reports and other material, non-public information regarding Borrowers and their Subsidiaries and their operations, assets, and existing and contemplated business plans in a confidential manner in accordance with Section 17.10, and (e) without limiting the generality of any other indemnification provision contained in this Agreement, agrees: (i) to hold Agent and any such other Lender preparing a Report harmless from any action the indemnifying Lender may take or conclusion the indemnifying Lender may reach or draw from any Report in connection with any loans or other credit accommodations that the indemnifying Lender has made or may make to Borrowers, or the indemnifying Lender's participation in, or the indemnifying Lender's purchase of, a loan or loans of Borrowers; and (ii) to pay and protect, and indemnify, defend and hold Agent, and any 124 such other Lender preparing a Report harmless from and against, the claims, actions, proceedings, damages, costs, expenses, and other amounts (including, attorneys' fees and costs) incurred by Agent and any such other Lender preparing a Report as the direct or indirect result of any third parties who might obtain all or part of any Report through the indemnifying Lender. In addition to the foregoing: (x) any Lender may from time to time request in writing that Agent provide to such Lender a copy of any report or document provided by Borrowers to Agent that has not been contemporaneously provided by Borrowers to such Lender, and, upon receipt of such request, Agent shall provide a copy of same to such Lender, (y) to the extent that Agent is entitled, under any provision of the Loan Documents, to request additional reports or information from Borrowers, any Lender may, from time to time, reasonably request Agent to exercise such right as specified in such Lender's notice to Agent, whereupon Agent promptly shall request of Administrative Borrower the additional reports or information reasonably specified by such Lender, and, upon receipt thereof from Administrative Borrower, Agent promptly shall provide a copy of same to such Lender, and (z) any time that Agent renders to Administrative Borrower a statement regarding the Loan Account, Agent shall send a copy of such statement to each Lender. 16.18 SEVERAL OBLIGATIONS; NO LIABILITY. Notwithstanding that certain of the Loan Documents now or hereafter may have been or will be executed only by or in favor of Agent in its capacity as such, and not by or in favor of the Lenders, any and all obligations on the part of Agent (if any) or any Lender to make any credit available hereunder shall constitute the several (and not joint) obligations of the respective Lenders on a ratable basis, according to their respective Commitments, to make an amount of such credit not to exceed, in principal amount, at any one time outstanding, the amount of their respective Commitments. Nothing contained herein shall confer upon any Lender any interest in, or subject any Lender to any liability for, or in respect of, the business, assets, profits, losses, or liabilities of any other Lender. Each Lender shall be solely responsible for notifying its Participants of any matters relating to the Loan Documents to the extent any such notice may be required, and no Lender shall have any obligation, duty, or liability to any Participant of any other Lender. Except as provided in Section 16.7, no member of the Lender Group shall have any liability for the acts or any other member of the Lender Group. No Lender shall be responsible to any Borrower or any other Person for any failure by any other Lender to fulfill its obligations to make credit available hereunder, nor to advance for it or on its behalf in connection with its Commitment, nor to take any other action on its behalf hereunder or in connection with the financing contemplated herein. 16.19 [INTENTIONALLY OMITTED.] 16.20 ADDITIONAL AGENTS. None of the Lenders or other entities identified on the facing page of or elsewhere in this Agreement as a "Lead Arranger", "Syndication Agent" or "Co-Documentation Agent" shall have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under this Agreement or any other Loan Document other than those applicable to all Lenders as such. Without limiting the foregoing, none of the Lenders so identified shall have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any other Lender. Each Lender acknowledges that it has not relied, and will not rely, on any of the Lenders or other entities so identified in deciding to enter into this Agreement or any other Loan Document or in taking or not taking action hereunder or thereunder. 125 16.21 QUEBEC SECURITY. For greater certainty, and without limiting the powers of Agent or any other Person acting as an agent for the Lender Group hereunder or under any of the Loan Documents, each Borrower hereby acknowledges that, for purposes of holding any Liens, including hypothecs, granted or to be granted by any Borrower or any Guarantor on movable or immovable property pursuant to the laws of the Province of Quebec to secure obligations of any Borrower or any Guarantor under any bond issued by any Borrower or any Guarantor, Agent shall be the holder of an irrevocable power of attorney (fonde de pouvoir within the meaning of Article 2692 of the Civil Code of Quebec) (the "Fonde de pouvoir") for and on behalf of (i) all present and future Lenders (including the Issuing Lender), (ii) the Issuing Lender and the Underlying Issuer that may from time to time, and respectively, issue L/C and L/C Undertaking for the account of Borrowers, and (iii) any Bank Product Provider that may from time to time extend Bank Products to Administrative Borrower or its Subsidiaries. Each Lender (including the Issuing Lender), for itself and on behalf of any Underlying Issuer that issues or may issue L/C Undertaking for the account of Borrowers and any Bank Product Provider that extends or may extend Bank Products to Administrative Borrower or its Subsidiaries, hereby (i) irrevocably constitutes, to the extent necessary, Agent as the Fonde de pouvoir in order to hold Liens, including hypothecs, granted or to be granted by any Borrower or any Guarantor on movable and immovable property pursuant to the laws of the Province of Quebec to secure obligations of any Borrower or any Guarantor under any bond issued by any Borrower or any Guarantor; and (ii) appoints and agrees that Agent, acting as administrative agent for the Lenders (including the Issuing Lender) may act as the bondholder and mandatary with respect to any bond that may be issued and pledged from time to time for the benefit of the Lenders (including the Issuing Lender), any Underlying Issuer and any Bank Product Provider. The said constitution of the Fonde de pouvoir as the holder of such irrevocable power of attorney and of Agent as bondholder and mandatory with respect to any bond that may be issued and pledged from time to time for the benefit of the Lenders (including the Issuing Lender), the Underlying Issuer and the Bank Product Provider shall be deemed to have been ratified and confirmed as follows: (i) by any Assignee by the execution of an Assignment and Acceptance; (ii) by any Issuing Lender, Underlying Issuer or Bank Product Provider by the issuance or execution, as the case may be, of L/C, L/C Undertaking or Bank Product; and (iii) by any assignee of the Issuing Lender, the Underlying Issuer or of the Bank Product Provider by the execution of an assignment agreement. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 32 of the An Act respecting the special powers of legal persons (Quebec), Agent may purchase, acquire and be the holder of any bond issued by any Borrower or any Guarantor (i.e. the Fonde de pouvoir may acquire and hold the first bond issued under any deed of hypothec granted by any Borrower or any Guarantor). Each Borrower hereby acknowledges that any such bond shall constitute a title of indebtedness, as such term is used in Article 2692 of the Civil Code of Quebec. 126 Agent herein appointed as Fonde de pouvoir shall have the same rights, powers and immunities as the Agent as stipulated in this Section 16, which shall apply mutatis mutandis. Without limitation, the provisions of Section 16.9 shall apply mutatis mutandis to the resignation and appointment of a successor to Agent acting as Fonde de pouvoir. 17. GENERAL PROVISIONS. 17.1 EFFECTIVENESS. This Agreement shall be binding and deemed effective when executed by Borrowers, Agent, and each Lender whose signature is provided for on the signature pages hereof. 17.2 SECTION HEADINGS. Headings and numbers have been set forth herein for convenience only. Unless the contrary is compelled by the context, everything contained in each Section applies equally to this entire Agreement. 17.3 INTERPRETATION. Neither this Agreement nor any uncertainty or ambiguity herein shall be construed or resolved against the Lender Group or Borrowers, whether under any rule of construction or otherwise. On the contrary, this Agreement has been reviewed by all parties and shall be construed and interpreted according to the ordinary meaning of the words used so as to accomplish fairly the purposes and intentions of all parties hereto. 17.4 SEVERABILITY OF PROVISIONS. Each provision of this Agreement shall be severable from every other provision of this Agreement for the purpose of determining the legal enforceability of any specific provision. Furthermore, the provisions of any Loan Document shall be severable from the provisions of every other Loan Document for the purpose of determining the legal enforceability of any specific provision. 17.5 AMENDMENTS IN WRITING. This Agreement only can be amended by a writing in accordance with Section 15.1. 17.6 COUNTERPARTS; TELEFACSIMILE EXECUTION. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute but one and the same Agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Agreement by telefacsimile or via email transmission of an Adobe portable document format file (also known as a "PDF File") shall be equally as effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Agreement. Any party delivering an executed counterpart of this Agreement by telefacsimile or via email transmission of an Adobe portable document format file (also known as a "PDF File") also shall deliver an original executed counterpart of this Agreement but the failure to deliver an original executed counterpart shall not affect the validity, enforceability, and binding effect of this Agreement. The foregoing shall apply to each other Loan Document mutatis mutandis. 17.7 REVIVAL AND REINSTATEMENT OF OBLIGATIONS. If the incurrence or payment of the Obligations by any Borrower or any Guarantor or the transfer to the Lender Group of any property should for any reason subsequently be declared to be void or voidable under any state or federal law relating to creditors' rights, including provisions of the Bankruptcy Code relating to fraudulent conveyances, preferences, or other voidable or recoverable payments of money or 127 transfers of property (collectively, a "Voidable Transfer"), and if the Lender Group is required to repay or restore, in whole or in part, any such Voidable Transfer, or elects to do so upon the reasonable advice of its counsel, then, as to any such Voidable Transfer, or the amount thereof that the Lender Group is required or elects to repay or restore, and as to all reasonable costs, expenses, and attorneys fees of the Lender Group related thereto, the liability of Borrowers or Guarantors automatically shall be revived, reinstated, and restored and shall exist as though such Voidable Transfer had never been made. 17.8 INTEGRATION. This Agreement, together with the other Loan Documents, reflects the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby and shall not be contradicted or qualified by any other agreement, oral or written, before the date hereof. 17.9 PARENT AS AGENT FOR BORROWERS. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Parent as the borrowing agent and attorney-in-fact for all Borrowers ("Administrative Borrower") which appointment shall remain in full force and effect unless and until Agent shall have received prior written notice signed by each Borrower that such appointment has been revoked and that another Borrower has been appointed Administrative Borrower. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes Administrative Borrower (i) to provide Agent with all notices with respect to Advances and Letters of Credit obtained for the benefit of any Borrower and all other notices and instructions under this Agreement and (ii) to take such action as Administrative Borrower deems appropriate on its behalf to obtain Advances and Letters of Credit and to exercise such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto to carry out the purposes of this Agreement. It is understood that the handling of the Loan Account and Collateral in a combined fashion, as more fully set forth herein, is done solely as an accommodation to Borrowers in order to utilize the collective borrowing powers of Borrowers in the most efficient and economical manner and at their request, and that Lender Group shall not incur liability to any Borrower as a result hereof. Each Borrower expects to derive benefit, directly or indirectly, from the handling of the Loan Account and the Collateral in a combined fashion since the successful operation of each Borrower is dependent on the continued successful performance of the integrated group. To induce the Lender Group to do so, and in consideration thereof, each Borrower hereby jointly and severally agrees to indemnify each member of the Lender Group and hold each member of the Lender Group harmless against any and all liability, expense, loss or claim of damage or injury, made against the Lender Group by any Borrower or by any third party whosoever, arising from or incurred by reason of (a) the handling of the Loan Account and Collateral as herein provided, (b) the Lender Group's relying on any instructions of Administrative Borrower, or (c) any other action taken by the Lender Group hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, except that Borrowers will have no liability to the relevant Agent-Related Person or Lender-Related Person under this Section 17.9 with respect to any liability that has been finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Agent-Related Person or Lender-Related Person, as the case may be. 17.10 CONFIDENTIALITY. Agent and the Lenders each individually (and not jointly or jointly and severally) agree that material, non-public information regarding Borrowers and their Subsidiaries, their operations, assets, and existing and contemplated business plans shall be treated by Agent 128 and the Lenders in a confidential manner, and shall not be disclosed by Agent and the Lenders to Persons who are not parties to this Agreement, except: (a) to attorneys for and other advisors, accountants, auditors, and consultants to any member of the Lender Group, (b) to Subsidiaries and Affiliates of any member of the Lender Group (including the Bank Product Providers), provided that any such Subsidiary or Affiliate shall have agreed to receive such information hereunder subject to the terms of this Section 17.10, (c) as may be required by statute, decision, or the Court or other judicial or administrative order, rule, or regulation, or to the extent requested by any regulatory authority purporting to have jurisdiction over any Lender (including any self-regulatory authority, such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners), (d) as may be agreed to in advance by Administrative Borrower or its Subsidiaries or as requested or required by any Governmental Authority pursuant to any subpoena or other legal process, (e) as to any such information that is or becomes generally available to the public (other than as a result of prohibited disclosure by Agent or the Lenders), (f) in connection with any assignment, prospective assignment, sale, prospective sale, participation or prospective participations, or pledge or prospective pledge of any Lender's interest under this Agreement, provided that any such assignee, prospective assignee, purchaser, prospective purchaser, participant, prospective participant, pledgee, or prospective pledgee shall have agreed in writing to receive such information hereunder subject to the terms of this Section, and (g) in connection with any litigation or other adversary proceeding involving parties hereto which such litigation or adversary proceeding involves claims related to the rights or duties of such parties under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents. The provisions of this Section 17.10 shall survive for 2 years after the payment in full of the Obligations. Anything contained herein or in any other Loan Document to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of confidentiality contained herein and therein, as they relate to the transactions contemplated hereby, shall not apply to the federal tax structure or federal tax treatment of such transactions, and each party hereto (and any employee, representative, or agent of any party hereto) may disclose to any and all Persons, without limitation of any kind, the federal tax structure and federal tax treatment of such transactions (including all written materials related to such tax structure and tax treatment). The preceding sentence is intended to cause the transactions contemplated hereby to not be treated as having been offered under conditions of confidentiality for purposes of Section 1.6011-4(b)(3) (or any successor provision) of the Treasury Regulations promulgated under Section 6011 of the IRC and shall be construed in a manner consistent with such purpose. In addition, each party hereto acknowledges that it has no proprietary or exclusive rights to the tax structure of the transactions contemplated hereby or any tax matter or tax idea related thereto.

Guaranty. Each Guarantor hereby guarantees to Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers, the full and prompt payment and performance of (a) the Obligations and the other covenants, agreements and liabilities of the Borrowers under the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents and (b) all of the obligations of each Guarantor and the other Guarantors (as defined in the Loan Agreement) to Agent under (i) this Guaranty, (ii) that certain Guarantee as of even date herewith, given by U-Haul Co.

Joint and Several Liability. Regardless of whether any proposed guarantor, surety or any other Person or Persons is or are or shall become in any other way responsible to the Lender Group, the Bank Product Providers, or any of them, for or in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof, and regardless of whether or not any Person now or hereafter responsible to the Lender Group, the Bank Product Providers, or any of them, for the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof, whether under this Guaranty or otherwise, shall cease to be so liable, each Guarantor hereby declares and agrees that this Guaranty shall be a joint and several obligation, shall be a continuing guaranty and shall be operative and binding until the later of such time as indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations (including (i) either (A) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (B) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to Issuing Lender, and (ii) providing cash collateral (in an amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider as sufficient to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Products Obligations), termination of the Loan Agreement and termination of the Commitments, in each case to the reasonable satisfaction of the Lender Group. 3. Merger. Upon execution of this Guaranty and delivery thereof to Agent, this Guaranty shall be deemed to be finally executed and delivered by the Guarantors and shall not be subject to or affected by any promise or condition affecting or limiting any Guarantor's liability, and no statement, representation, agreement or promise on the part of the Lender Group, the Borrowers and the Guarantors, or any of them, or any officer, employee or agent thereof, unless contained herein, forms any part of this Guaranty or has induced the making thereof or shall be deemed in any way to affect any Guarantor's liability hereunder. Each of the Guarantors absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably waives any and all right to assert any defense, set-off, counterclaim or cross-claim of any nature whatsoever with respect to this Guaranty or the obligations of such Guarantor under this Guaranty or the obligations of any other Person or party (including, without limitation, the Borrowers) relating to this Guaranty or the obligations of any of the Guarantors under this Guaranty or otherwise with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations in - 2 - any action or proceeding brought by Agent hereof to collect the Guaranteed Obligations or any portion thereof or to enforce the obligations of any of the Guarantors under this Guaranty. 4. Rights of the Lender Group. Agent may from time to time, without exonerating or releasing any Guarantor in any way under this Guaranty, (i) take such further or other security or collateral for the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof as it may deem proper, (ii) release, discharge, abandon or otherwise deal with or fail to deal with any other Guarantor or other guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations or any collateral, security or securities therefor or any part thereof now or hereafter held by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group, (iii) amend, increase the amount owing under, modify, extend, accelerate or waive in any manner any of the provisions, terms, or conditions of the Loan Documents, pursuant to the provisions of such Loan Documents, or (iv) act or fail to act in any manner referred to in this Guaranty without regard to whether such action or inaction may deprive a Guarantor of its right to subrogation against the Borrowers to recover full indemnity for any payments made pursuant to this Guaranty. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, or of Section 5 hereof, it is understood that Agent may, without exonerating or releasing any Guarantor, give up, or modify or abstain from perfecting or taking advantage of any security or Collateral in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations and accept or make any compositions or arrangements, and realize upon any security for the Guaranteed Obligations when, and in such manner, and with or without notice, all as such Person or Persons may deem expedient. 5. Guaranteed Obligations of Each Guarantor Absolute. Each Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that no change in the nature or terms of the Guaranteed Obligations or any of the Loan Documents or other agreements, instruments or contracts evidencing, related to or attendant upon the Guaranteed Obligations (including any novation) shall discharge all or any part of the liabilities and obligations of such Guarantor pursuant to this Guaranty, it being the purpose and intent of each Guarantor and Agent that the covenants, agreements and all liabilities and obligations of such Guarantor hereunder are absolute, unconditional and irrevocable under any and all circumstances. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Guarantor agrees that until all of the covenants and agreements of this Guaranty are fully performed, and without possibility of recourse, whether by operation of law or otherwise, such Guarantor's undertakings hereunder shall not be released, in whole or in part, by any action or thing that might, but for this paragraph of this Guaranty, be deemed a legal or equitable discharge of a surety or guarantor, or by reason of any waiver, omission of Agent or any other member of the Lender Group, or its or their failure to proceed promptly or otherwise, or by reason of any action taken or omitted by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group, whether or not such action or failure to act varies or increases the risk of, or affects the rights or remedies of, such Guarantor or by reason of any further dealings between the Borrowers, on the one hand, and Agent or the Lender Group or any member thereof, on the other hand, or any other guarantor or surety, and such Guarantor hereby expressly waives and surrenders any defense to its liability hereunder, or any right of counterclaim or offset of any nature or description that it may have or may exist based upon, and shall be deemed to have consented to, any of the foregoing acts, omissions, things, agreements or waivers. 6. Setoff. Subject to Section 16.13 of the Loan Agreement, the Lender Group or any of them may, without demand or notice of any kind upon or to any Guarantor, at any time or from time to time when any amount shall be due and payable hereunder by any - 3 - Guarantor, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, setoff, appropriate and apply to any portion of the Guaranteed Obligations hereby guaranteed, and in such order of application as set forth in the Loan Agreement, any deposits, property, balances, credit accounts or moneys of any Guarantor in the possession of Agent or any other member of the Lender Group under their respective control for any purpose. If and to the extent that any Guarantor makes any payment to Agent or any other Person pursuant to or in respect of this Guaranty, any claim that such Guarantor may have against any Borrower by reason thereof shall be subject and subordinate to the prior payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations to the reasonable satisfaction of the Lender Group. 7. Maximum Guaranteed Amount. The creation or existence from time to time of Guaranteed Obligations in excess of the amount committed to or outstanding on the date of this Guaranty is hereby authorized, without notice to any Guarantor, and shall in no way impair or affect this Guaranty or the rights of Agent or any other member of the Lender Group herein. It is the intention of each Guarantor and Agent that each Guarantor's obligations hereunder shall be, but not in excess of, the Maximum Guaranteed Amount (as herein defined). The "Maximum Guaranteed Amount", with respect to any Guarantor, shall mean the maximum amount that could be paid out by such Guarantor without rendering this Guaranty void or voidable as would otherwise be held or determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in any Insolvency Proceeding involving any state or any federal bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance or other similar laws relating to the insolvency of debtors. 8. Insolvency. Upon the bankruptcy or winding up or other distribution of assets of any Borrower or any Subsidiary of a Borrower or of any surety or guarantor (other than a Guarantor) for any Obligations of the Borrowers to the Lender Group, the rights of any member of the Lender Group against any Guarantor shall not be affected or impaired by the omission of any member of the Lender Group to prove its claim, or to prove the full claim, as appropriate, and Agent may prove such claims as it sees fit and may refrain from proving any claim and in its discretion may value as it sees fit or refrain from valuing any security held by it without in any way releasing, reducing or otherwise affecting the liability to any member of the Lender Group of each of the Guarantors. 9. Application of Payments. Any amount received by Agent from whatsoever source and applied toward the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be applied in such order of application as set forth in the Loan Agreement. 10. Waiver of Presentment and Demand. (a) To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably expressly waives the following: (i) notice of acceptance of this Guaranty; (ii) notice of the existence or creation of all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations; (iii) notice of the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations, subject, however, to such Guarantor's right to make inquiry of Agent to ascertain the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations at any reasonable time; (iv) notice of any Event of Default under the Loan Agreement or the other Loan Documents; (v) presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, protest, and all other notices whatsoever; (vi) all diligence in collection or protection of or realization upon the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof, any obligation hereunder, or any - 4 - security for any of the foregoing; (vii) until indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations (including (A) either (1) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (2) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to Issuing Lender, and (B) providing cash collateral (in an amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider as sufficient to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Products Obligations), termination of the Loan Agreement and termination of the Commitments, in each case to the reasonable satisfaction of the Lender Group, and termination of this Guaranty, all rights to enforce any remedy that Agent or any other member of the Lender Group may have against the Borrowers; and (viii) any benefit of, or right to participate in, any collateral or security now or hereinafter held by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations. If a claim is ever made upon Agent or any other member of the Lender Group for the repayment or recovery of any amount or amounts received by such Person in payment of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and such Person repays all or part of such amount by reason of (i) any judgment, decree or order of any court or administrative body having jurisdiction over such Person or any of its property, or (ii) any settlement or compromise of any such claim effected by such Person with any such claimant, including any Borrower, then in such event each Guarantor agrees that any such judgment, decree, order, settlement or compromise shall be binding upon such Guarantor, notwithstanding any revocation hereof or the cancellation of any promissory note or other instrument evidencing any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and such Guarantor shall be and remain obligated to such Person hereunder for the amount so repaid or recovered to the same extent as if such amount had never originally been received by such Person. (b) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor hereby waives (i) the right by statute or otherwise to require Agent or any other member of the Lender Group to institute suit against any Borrower or any other Person or to exhaust any rights and remedies that Agent or any other member of the Lender Group has or may have against any Borrower or any other Person and (ii) any defense arising by reason of any disability or other defense (other than the defense that the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash and the Commitments have been terminated) of any Borrower or any other Person or by reason of the cessation from any cause (other than that the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash and the Commitments have been terminated) whatsoever of the liability of any Borrower or any other Person in respect thereof. (c) No Guarantor shall be released or discharged, either in whole or in part, by Agent's or any other member of the Lender Group's failure or delay to (i) perfect or continue the perfection of any lien or security interest in any collateral that secures the Guaranteed Obligations or any other obligations of the Borrowers, any Guarantor or any other Person, or (ii) protect the property covered by such lien or security interest. (d) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor hereby waives: (i) any rights to assert against Agent or any other member of the Lender Group any defense (legal or equitable), set-off, counterclaim, or claim that such Guarantor may now or at any time hereafter have against any Borrower or any other Person liable to Agent and any other member of the Lender Group on account of or with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations (other than the defense that the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash - 5 - and the Commitments have been terminated); (ii) any defense, set-off, counterclaim, or claim, of any kind or nature, arising directly or indirectly from the present or future sufficiency, validity, or enforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations (other than the defense that the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash and the Commitments have been terminated); (iii) any defense arising by reason of any claim or defense based upon an election of remedies by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group; and (iv) the benefit of any statute of limitations affecting such Guarantor's liability hereunder or the enforcement thereof. (e) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor hereby waives, until indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations (including (i) either (A) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (B) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to Issuing Lender, and (ii) providing cash collateral (in an amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider as sufficient to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Products Obligations), termination of the Loan Agreement and termination of the Commitments, in each case to the reasonable satisfaction of the Lender Group, and termination of this Guaranty, any right of subrogation such Guarantor has or may have as against any Borrower or any other Person with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations. In addition, each Guarantor hereby subordinates and postpones, until indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations (including (i) either (A) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (B) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to Issuing Lender, and (ii) providing cash collateral (in an amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider as sufficient to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Products Obligations), termination of the Loan Agreement and termination of the Commitments, in each case to the reasonable satisfaction of the Lender Group, and termination of this Guaranty, any right to proceed against any Borrower or any other Person, now or hereafter arising, for contribution, indemnity, reimbursement, or any other suretyship rights and claims (irrespective of whether direct or indirect, liquidated or contingent) with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations. Each Guarantor also hereby waives any right to proceed or to seek recourse against or with respect to any property or asset of any Borrower or any other Person. Each Guarantor hereby agrees that, in light of the waivers contained in this Section 10, such Guarantor shall not be deemed to be a "creditor" (as that term is defined in Title 11 of the United States Code, as in effect from time to time (the "Bankruptcy Code") or otherwise) of any Borrower or any other Person, whether for purposes of the application of Sections 547 or 550 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise. (f) Each Guarantor hereby waives any rights and defenses such Guarantor may have if all or part of the Guaranteed Obligations are secured by real property. These rights and defenses are based upon Section 580a, 580b, 580d, or 726 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, the Nevada one action rule NRS 40.430 or any similar laws of New York or any other jurisdiction. (g) WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF ANY OTHER WAIVER OR OTHER PROVISION SET FORTH IN THIS GUARANTY, EACH GUARANTOR HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT SUCH WAIVER IS - 6 - PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY AND ALL BENEFITS OR DEFENSES ARISING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY UNDER ANY ONE OR MORE OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTIONS 2787 THROUGH AND INCLUDING SECTION 2855, CALIFORNIA CODE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE SECTIONS 580a, 580b, 580c, 580d, AND 726, AND CHAPTER 2 OF TITLE 14 OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE OR ANY SIMILAR LAWS OF NEW YORK OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION. (h) WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF ANY OTHER WAIVER OR OTHER PROVISION SET FORTH IN THIS GUARANTY, EACH GUARANTOR WAIVES ALL RIGHTS AND DEFENSES ARISING OUT OF AN ELECTION OF REMEDIES BY AGENT, EVEN THOUGH THAT ELECTION OF REMEDIES, SUCH AS A NONJUDICIAL FORECLOSURE WITH RESPECT TO SECURITY FOR A GUARANTEED OBLIGATION, HAS DESTROYED SUCH GUARANTOR'S RIGHTS OF SUBROGATION AND REIMBURSEMENT AGAINST ANY BORROWER BY THE OPERATION OF SECTION 580d OF THE CALIFORNIA CODE OF CIVIL PROCEDURE OR ANY SIMILAR LAWS OF NEW YORK OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION OR OTHERWISE. (i) Without affecting the generality of this Section, each Guarantor hereby also agrees to the following waivers: (i) such Guarantor agrees that Agent's right to enforce this Guaranty is absolute and is not contingent upon the genuineness, validity or enforceability of any of the Loan Documents. Such Guarantor waives all benefits and defenses it may have under California Civil Code Section 2810 or any similar laws of New York or any other jurisdiction and agrees that Agent's rights under this Guaranty shall be enforceable even if no Borrower had any liability at the time of execution of the Loan Documents or later ceases to be liable; (ii) such Guarantor waives all benefits and defenses it may have under California Civil Code Section 2809 or any similar laws of New York or any other jurisdiction with respect to its obligations under this Guaranty and agrees that Agent's rights under the Loan Documents will remain enforceable even if the amount secured by the Loan Documents is larger in amount and more burdensome than that for which Borrowers are responsible. The enforceability of this Guaranty against such Guarantor shall continue until all sums due under the Loan Documents have been paid in full and shall not be limited or affected in any way by any impairment or any diminution or loss of value of any security or collateral for any Borrower's obligations under the Loan Documents, from whatever cause, the failure of any security interest in any such security or collateral or any disability or other defense of any Borrower, any other guarantor of any Borrower's obligations under the Loan Documents, any pledgor of collateral for any Person's obligations to Lender or any other Person in connection with the Loan Documents; and (iii) such Guarantor waives all benefits and defenses it may have under California Civil Code Sections 2845, 2849 and 2850 or any similar laws of New York or any other jurisdiction with respect to its obligations under this Guaranty, including the right to require Agent to (A) proceed against any Borrower, any guarantor of any Borrower's obligations under the Loan Documents, any other pledgor of collateral for any Person's obligations to any - 7 - member of the Lender Group or any other Person in connection with the Guaranteed Obligations, (B) proceed against or exhaust any other security or collateral Agent or any other member of the Lender Group may hold, or (C) pursue any other right or remedy for such Guarantor's benefit, and agrees that Agent may exercise its rights under this Guaranty without taking any action against any Borrower, any other guarantor of any Borrower's obligations under the Loan Documents, any pledgor of collateral for any Person's obligations to any member of the Lender Group or any other Person in connection with the Guaranteed Obligations, and without proceeding against or exhausting any security or collateral Lender holds. (j) The paragraphs in this Section 10 which refer to certain sections of the California Civil Code are included in this Guaranty solely out of an abundance of caution and shall not be construed to mean that any of the above-referenced provisions of California law are in any way applicable to this Guaranty. 11. Continuing Guaranty. This Guaranty is a continuing guaranty of the Guaranteed Obligations and all liabilities to which it applies or may apply under the terms hereof and shall be conclusively presumed to have been created in reliance hereon. No failure or delay by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group in the exercise of any right, power, privilege or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof, and no single or partial exercise by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group of any right or remedy shall preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy and no course of dealing between any Guarantor, Agent or any other member of the Lender Group shall operate as a waiver thereof. The obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall remain in full force and effect without regard to, and shall not be affected or impaired by the following, any of which may be taken without the consent of, or notice to, such Guarantor, nor shall any of the following give such Guarantor any recourse or right of action against Agent or any other member of the Lender Group: (a) Any Insolvency Proceeding relating to such Guarantor or any Borrower, any Affiliate of any Borrower or any other Person, or any action taken with respect to this Guaranty by any trustee or receiver, or by any court, in any such proceeding, regardless of whether such Guarantor shall have had notice or knowledge of any of the foregoing; (b) Any release or discharge of any Borrower from its liability under any of the Loan Documents or any release or discharge of any endorser or guarantor or of any other Person at any time directly or contingently liable for the Guaranteed Obligations; (c) Any subordination, compromise, release (by operation of law or otherwise), discharge, compound, collection or liquidation of any or all of the Collateral or other property described in any of the Loan Documents or otherwise in any manner, or any substitution with respect thereto; and (d) Any acceptance of partial performance of the Guaranteed Obligations. No action by Agent or any other member of the Lender Group permitted hereunder shall in any way impair or affect this Guaranty. For the purpose of this Guaranty, the Guaranteed Obligations shall include, without limitation, all Obligations of the Borrowers to Agent and the other members of the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers, notwithstanding any right - 8 - or power of any third party, individually or in the name of the Borrowers, the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers, or any of them, to assert any claim or defense as to the invalidity or unenforceability of any such Obligation, and no such claim or defense shall impair or affect the obligations of any Guarantor hereunder. 12. Successors and Assigns. (a) This Guaranty shall bind and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of each of the parties hereto, including, without limitation, any receiver or trustee of a Guarantor; provided, however, that no Guarantor may assign this Guaranty or any rights or duties hereunder without Agent's prior written consent, except as otherwise permitted by Section 7.3 of the Loan Agreement, and any prohibited assignment shall be absolutely void ab initio. No consent to assignment by Agent shall release any Guarantor from its obligations to the Lender Group and the Bank Product Providers. (b) Agent and the other members of the Lender Group may, to the extent permitted under the Loan Agreement or any other Loan Documents, and pursuant to the notice provisions thereunder, sell, assign or transfer all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations, and in such event each and every permitted assignee, transferee, or holder of all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall have the right to enforce this Guaranty, by suit or otherwise, for the benefit of such permitted assignee, transferee or holder as fully as if such assignee, transferee or holder were herein by name specifically given such rights, powers and benefits. In the event this Guaranty or the rights hereunder are so assigned by Agent, the term "Agent", wherever used herein, shall be deemed to refer to and include any such assignee. 13. Collection Costs and Fees; Notices. This is a guaranty of payment and not of collection. In the event Agent makes a demand upon any Guarantor in accordance with the terms of this Guaranty, such Guarantor shall be held and bound to Agent directly as debtor in respect of the payment of the amounts hereby guaranteed. The Guarantors shall be jointly and severally liable for the payment and performance of their obligations hereunder. All costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, incurred by Agent in obtaining performance of or collecting payments due under this Guaranty shall be deemed part of the Guaranteed Obligations guaranteed hereby. Any notice, demand or other communication that Agent may wish to give shall be served upon any Guarantor in the fashion prescribed for notices in the Loan Agreement at the address for such Guarantor given on Exhibit A attached hereto and the notice so sent shall be deemed to be served as set forth in the Loan Agreement. All notices or other communication to Agent shall be served upon Agent at its address set forth in Section 12 of the Loan Agreement and in the fashion prescribed thereunder. 14.

(d) Each Guarantor agrees that, for purposes of this Guaranty, all of the representations, warranties and covenants made by Borrowers on behalf of or relating to each "Subsidiary" or any "Guarantor" in the Loan Agreement shall be deemed incorporated by reference into and made an express part of this Guaranty, as fully and completely as if set forth expressly herein, and such Guarantor shall comply herewith and be bound thereby. Each Guarantor ratifies and affirms each representation and warranty made with respect to it or on its behalf by any Borrower in the Loan Agreement. 17. CHOICE OF LAW AND VENUE; JURY TRIAL WAIVER.

Upon the execution and delivery of Annex 1 by such new Subsidiary, such Subsidiary shall become a Guarantor hereunder with the same force and effect as if originally named as a Guarantor herein. The execution and delivery of any instrument adding an additional Guarantor as a party to this Guaranty shall not require the consent of any Guarantor hereunder. The rights and obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the addition of any new Guarantor hereunder. 22. Term. Upon indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations (including (a) either (i) providing cash collateral to be held by Agent in an amount equal to 105% of the then extant Letter of Credit Usage, or (ii) causing the original Letters of - 11 - Credit to be returned to Issuing Lender, and (b) providing cash collateral (in an amount determined by the applicable Bank Product Provider as sufficient to satisfy the reasonably estimated credit exposure) to be held by Agent for the benefit of the Bank Product Providers with respect to the then extant Bank Products Obligations), termination of the Loan Agreement and termination of the Commitments, in each case to the satisfaction of the Lender Group, this Guaranty shall terminate and Agent shall take all action reasonably requested by any Guarantor (at the expense of the Borrowers or such Guarantor) to evidence the termination of this Guaranty. 23. Severability of Provisions. Each provision of this Guaranty shall be severable from every other provision of this Guaranty for the purpose of determining the legal enforceability of any specific provision. 24. Counterparts; Telefacsimile Execution. This Guaranty may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute but one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Guaranty by telefacsimile shall be equally as effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Guaranty. 25. Survival of Provisions. All representations, warranties and covenants of each Guarantor contained herein shall survive the execution and delivery of this Guaranty. 26. Integration. This Guaranty, together with the other Loan Documents, reflects the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby and shall not be contradicted or qualified by any other agreement, oral or written, before the date hereof. 27. Section Headings. Headings and numbers have been set forth herein for convenience only. Unless the contrary is compelled by the context, everything contained in each Section applies equally to this entire Guaranty. 28. Voided Payments. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, to the extent that any Guarantor or any other party makes any payment on the Guaranteed Obligations that is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent, avoidable or preferential, set aside or is required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver, the estate of such Guarantor or any other party under any bankruptcy act, state or Federal law, common law or equitable cause (such payment being hereinafter referred to as a "Voided Payment"), then to the extent of such Voided Payment that portion of the Guaranteed Obligations that had been previously satisfied by such Voided Payment shall be revived and continue in full force and effect as if such Voided Payment had never been made. In the event that a Voided Payment is sought to be recovered from Agent or any other member of the Lender Group, an "Event of Default" under the Loan Agreement shall be deemed to have occurred and to be continuing from the date of such recovery from Agent or such other member of the Lender Group of such Voided Payment until the full amount of such Voided Payment is fully and finally restored to Agent or such other member of the Lender Group and until such time the provisions of this Guaranty, and the guaranty provided herein, shall be in full force and effect. - 12 - IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this Guaranty as of the date first above written.
