The Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation, and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is required by law, other than those jurisdictions as to which the failure to be so qualified or in good standing would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The Company has the corporate power and authority to own or hold under lease the properties it purports to own or hold under lease, to transact the business it transacts and proposes to transact, to execute and deliver this Agreement and the Notes and to perform the provisions hereof and thereof.
Section 5.2.    Authorization, Etc. This Agreement and the Notes to be issued pursuant to the terms hereof have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of the Company, and this Agreement constitutes, and upon execution and delivery thereof each such Note will constitute, a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (ii) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).
Section 5.3.    Disclosure.

This Agreement, the Memorandum and the documents, certificates or other writings delivered to the Purchasers by or on behalf of the Company in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and identified in Schedule 5.3 and the financial statements listed in Section 5.5 (this Agreement, the Memorandum and such

-7-


documents, certificates or other writings and such financial statements in each case, delivered to the Purchasers prior to August 6, 2015 being referred to, collectively, as the “Disclosure Documents”), taken as a whole, do not, as of their respective dates, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances under which they were made. Except as disclosed in the Disclosure Documents, since December 28, 2014, there has been no change in the financial condition, operations, business or properties of the Company or any Subsidiary, except changes that individually or in the aggregate would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. There is no fact known to the Company that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect that has not been set forth herein or in the Disclosure Documents.
Section 5.4.    Organization and Ownership of Shares of Subsidiaries. (a) Schedule 5.4 contains (except as noted therein) complete and correct lists (i) of the Company’s Subsidiaries, showing, as to each Subsidiary, the correct name thereof, the jurisdiction of its organization, and the percentage of shares of each class of its Capital Stock or similar equity interests outstanding owned by the Company and each other Subsidiary and (ii) of the Company’s directors and senior officers.
(b)    All of the outstanding shares of capital stock or similar equity interests of each Subsidiary shown in Schedule 5.4 as being owned by the Company, its Material Subsidiaries and the Subsidiary Guarantors have been validly issued, are fully paid and nonassessable and are owned by the Company, a Material Subsidiary or a Subsidiary Guarantor free and clear of any Lien (except as otherwise disclosed in Schedule 5.4).
(c)    Each Material Subsidiary and Subsidiary Guarantor identified in Schedule 5.4 is a corporation or other legal entity duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization, and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation or other legal entity and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is required by law, other than those jurisdictions as to which the failure to be so qualified or in good standing would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Each such Material Subsidiary and Subsidiary Guarantor has the corporate or other power and authority to own or hold under lease the properties it purports to own or hold under lease and to transact the business it transacts and proposes to transact, except for such power or authority as to which the failure to have would not have a Material Adverse Effect.
(d)    Neither any Material Subsidiary nor any Subsidiary Guarantor is a party to, or otherwise subject to any legal, regulatory, contractual or other restriction (other than this Agreement, the agreements listed on Schedule 5.4 and customary limitations imposed by corporate law or similar statutes) restricting the ability of such Material Subsidiary or such Subsidiary Guarantor to pay

-8-


dividends out of profits or make any other similar distributions of profits to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries that owns outstanding shares of capital stock or similar equity interests of such Material Subsidiary or such Subsidiary Guarantor.

SECTION 8.
PAYMENT OF THE NOTES.
Section 8.1.    Maturity. (a) The entire unpaid principal amount of the Series A Notes shall become due and payable on November 5, 2020.
(b)    The entire unpaid principal amount of the Series B Notes shall become due and payable on November 5, 2022.
Section 8.2.    Optional Prepayments with Make-Whole Amount. (a) Subject to the terms of Section 8.2(b), the Company may, at its option, upon notice as provided below, prepay at any time all, or from time to time any part of, the Notes of any Series in an amount not less than 10% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes of such Series then outstanding in the case of a partial prepayment (or such lesser amount as shall be required to effect a partial prepayment resulting from an offer of prepayment pursuant to Section 10.5), at 100% of the principal amount so prepaid, together with interest accrued thereon to the date of such prepayment, plus the Make‑Whole Amount determined for the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount. The Company will give each holder of Notes of each applicable Series written notice of each optional prepayment under this Section 8.2 not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days prior to the date fixed for such prepayment. Each such notice shall specify such date (which shall be a Business Day), the aggregate

-23-


principal amount of the Notes of the applicable Series to be prepaid on such date, the principal amount of each Note held by such holder to be prepaid (determined in accordance with Section 8.3), and the interest to be paid on the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount being prepaid, and shall be accompanied by a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer as to the estimated respective Make-Whole Amount due in connection with such prepayment (calculated as if the date of such notice were the date of the prepayment), setting forth the details of such computation. Two Business Days prior to such prepayment, the Company shall deliver to each holder of Notes of the Series to be prepaid a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer specifying the calculation of each such Make‑Whole Amount as of the specified prepayment date.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything contained in Section 8.2(a) to the contrary, if and so long as any Default or Event of Default exists, or any full or partial prepayment is made in contemplation or avoidance of any Default or Event of Default, any full or partial prepayment of the Notes pursuant to the provisions of this Section 8.2 may not be made by the Company by Series but rather shall be made by the Company with respect to all of the Notes (without regard to Series) and, with respect to a partial prepayment, shall be allocated among all of the Notes at the time outstanding in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective unpaid principal amounts thereof (without regard to Series).
Section 8.3.    Allocation of Partial Prepayments. In the case of each partial prepayment of the Notes of any Series pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.2, the principal amount of the Notes of the Series to be prepaid shall be allocated among all of the Notes of such Series to be prepaid at the time outstanding in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective unpaid principal amounts thereof not theretofore called for prepayment. In the case of each partial prepayment made pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.8, the principal amount of the Notes to be prepaid shall be made to such holders who have accepted any offer of prepayment pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.8, and such partial prepayment shall be allocated among the Notes of such holders in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective unpaid principal amounts thereof of the Notes of all holders who have accepted such offer of prepayment.
Section 8.4.    Maturity; Surrender, Etc.     In the case of each prepayment of Notes pursuant to this Section 8, the principal amount of each Note to be prepaid shall mature and become due and payable on the date fixed for such prepayment (which shall be a Business Day), together with interest on such principal amount accrued to such date and the applicable Make‑Whole Amount, if any. From and after such date, unless the Company shall fail to pay such principal amount when so due and payable, together with the interest and Make‑Whole Amount as aforesaid, interest on such principal amount shall cease to accrue. Any Note paid or prepaid in full shall be surrendered to the Company and cancelled and shall not be reissued, and no Note shall be issued in lieu of any prepaid principal amount of any Note.

-24-


Section 8.5.    Purchase of Notes. The Company will not and will not permit any Affiliate to purchase, redeem, prepay or otherwise acquire, directly or indirectly, any of the outstanding Notes of any Series except (a) upon the payment or prepayment of the Notes in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Notes or (b) pursuant to a written offer to purchase any outstanding Notes made by the Company or an Affiliate pro rata to the holders of the Notes of any Series upon the same terms and conditions; provided however, if a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or would result from any offer to purchase the Notes of any Series, such offer to purchase Notes must be made pursuant to a written offer made by the Company or an Affiliate pro rata to the holders of the Notes of all Series upon the same terms and conditions. The Company will promptly cancel all Notes acquired by it or any Affiliate pursuant to any payment, prepayment or purchase of Notes pursuant to any provision of this Agreement and no Notes may be issued in substitution or exchange for any such Notes.
Section 8.6.    Make‑Whole Amount for the Notes‑. “Make-Whole Amount” means, with respect to any Note, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the Discounted Value of the Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to the Called Principal of such Note over the amount of such Called Principal, provided that the Make-Whole Amount may in no event be less than zero. For the purposes of determining the Make-Whole Amount, the following terms have the following meanings:
“Called Principal” means, with respect to any Note, the principal of such Note that is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 8.2 or has become or is declared to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1, as the context requires.
“Discounted Value” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, the amount obtained by discounting all Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to such Called Principal from their respective scheduled due dates to the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in accordance with accepted financial practice and at a discount factor (applied on the same periodic basis as that on which interest on the Notes is payable) equal to the Reinvestment Yield with respect to such Called Principal.
“Reinvestment Yield” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, 0.50% over the yield to maturity implied by (i) the yields reported as of 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, on the display designated as “Page PX1” (or such other display as may replace Page PX1) on Bloomberg Financial Markets for the most recently issued actively traded on the run U.S. Treasury securities having a maturity equal to the Remaining Average Life of such Called Principal as of such Settlement Date, or (ii) if such yields are not reported as of such time or the yields reported as of such time are not ascertainable (including by way of interpolation), the Treasury Constant Maturity Series Yields

-25-


reported, for the latest day for which such yields have been so reported as of the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H.15 (or any comparable successor publication) for U.S. Treasury securities having a constant maturity equal to the Remaining Average Life of such Called Principal as of such Settlement Date.
In the case of each determination under clause (i) or clause (ii), as the case may be, of the preceding paragraph, such implied yield will be determined, if necessary, by (a) converting U.S. Treasury bill quotations to bond equivalent yields in accordance with accepted financial practice and (b) interpolating linearly between (1) the applicable U.S. Treasury security with the maturity closest to and greater than such Remaining Average Life and (2) the applicable U.S. Treasury security with the maturity closest to and less than such Remaining Average Life. The Reinvestment Yield shall be rounded to the number of decimal places as appears in the interest rate of the applicable Note.
“Remaining Average Life” means, with respect to any Called Principal, the number of years (calculated to the nearest one-twelfth year) obtained by dividing (i) such Called Principal into (ii) the sum of the products obtained by multiplying (a) the principal component of each Remaining Scheduled Payment with respect to such Called Principal by (b) the number of years (calculated to the nearest one-twelfth year) that will elapse between the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal and the scheduled due date of such Remaining Scheduled Payment.
“Remaining Scheduled Payments” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, all payments of such Called Principal and interest thereon that would be due after the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal if no payment of such Called Principal were made prior to its scheduled due date, provided that if such Settlement Date is not a date on which interest payments are due to be made under the terms of the Notes, then the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued to such Settlement Date and required to be paid on such Settlement Date pursuant to Section 8.2 or Section 12.1. For the avoidance of doubt, the Applicable Interest Rate then in effect shall be used in connection with any computation of the Remaining Scheduled Payments.
“Settlement Date” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, the date on which such Called Principal is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 8.2 or 8.8 or has become or is declared to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1, as the context requires.

If such Proposed Prepayment Date is in connection with an offer contemplated by subparagraph (a) of this Section 8.7, such date shall be not less than 20 days and not more than 30 days after the date of such offer (if the Proposed Prepayment Date shall not be specified in such offer, the Proposed Prepayment Date shall be the 20th day after the date of such offer).
(c)    Rejection. A holder of Notes may accept or reject the offer to prepay made pursuant to this Section 8.7 by causing a notice of such acceptance or rejection to be delivered to the Company at least 5 Business Days prior to the Proposed Prepayment Date. A failure by a holder of Notes to respond to an offer to prepay made pursuant to this Section 8.7 shall be deemed to constitute a rejection of such offer by such holder.
(d)    Prepayment. Prepayment of the Notes to be prepaid pursuant to this Section 8.7 shall be at 100% of the principal amount of such Notes, together with interest on such Notes accrued to the date of prepayment but without any Make-Whole Amount or premium. The prepayment shall be made on the Proposed Prepayment Date except as provided in subparagraph (f) of this Section 8.7.
(e)    Officer’s Certificate. Each offer to prepay the Notes pursuant to this Section 8.7 shall be accompanied by a certificate, executed by a Senior Financial Officer of the Company and dated the date of such offer, specifying: (i) the Proposed Prepayment Date; (ii) that such offer is made pursuant to this Section 8.7; (iii) that the entire principal amount of each Note is offered to be prepaid; (iv) the interest that would be due on each Note is offered to be prepaid, accrued to the Proposed Prepayment Date; (v) that the conditions of this Section 8.7 have been fulfilled; and (vi) in reasonable detail, the nature and date or proposed date of the Change in Control.

-27-


(f)    “Change in Control” Defined. “Change in Control” means the occurrence of the following event or circumstance:
if any Person or Persons acting in concert, together with Affiliates thereof, shall become in the aggregate, directly or indirectly, the “beneficial owner” (as defined in Rules 13d-3 and 13d-5 under the Exchange Act) of more than 50% (by number of shares) of the issued and outstanding Voting Stock of the Company.
Section 8.8.    Prepayment in Connection with Asset Sales. If the Company is required, in accordance with Section 10.5, to offer to prepay the Notes of all Series using the proceeds of a sale of a substantial part of the assets of the Company and its Subsidiaries, the Company will give written notice thereof to each holder of a Note, which notice shall describe such sale in reasonable detail and (a) refer specifically to this Section 8.8, (b) specify the pro rata portion of each Note being so offered to be so prepaid (determined based on the unpaid principal amount of each Note in proportion to the aggregate unpaid principal of all Notes at the time outstanding), (c) specify a date not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days after the date of such notice (the “Asset Sale Prepayment Date”) and specify the Asset Sale Response Date (as defined below) and (d) offer to prepay on the Asset Sale Prepayment Date such pro rata portion of each Note, together with interest accrued thereon to the Asset Sale Prepayment Date. Each holder of a Note shall notify the Company of such holder’s acceptance or rejection of such offer by giving written notice thereof to the Company on a date at least 10 days prior to the Asset Sale Prepayment Date (such date 10 days prior to the Asset Sale Prepayment Date being the “Asset Sale Response Date”), and the Company shall prepay on the Asset Sale Prepayment Date such pro rata portion of each Note held by the holders who have accepted such offer in accordance with this Section 8.8 at a price in respect of each Note held by such holder equal to 100% of the principal amount of such pro rata portion, together with interest accrued thereon to the Asset Sale Prepayment Date but without any Make-Whole Amount or premium; provided, however, that the failure by a holder of any Note to respond to such offer in writing on or before the Asset Sale Response Date shall be deemed to be a rejection of such offer.

SECTION 12.
REMEDIES ON DEFAULT, ETC.

(a) If an Event of Default with respect to the Company described in Section 11(h) or (i) (other than an Event of Default described in clause (i) of Section 11(h) or described in clause (vi) of Section 11(h) by virtue of the fact that such clause encompasses clause (i) of Section 11(h)) has occurred, all the Notes of every Series then outstanding shall automatically become immediately due and payable.
(b)    If any other Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any holder or holders of more than 50% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes at the time outstanding may at any time at its or their option, by notice or notices to the Company, declare all the Notes then outstanding to be immediately due and payable.

Section 12.2.    Other Remedies. If any Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and irrespective of whether any Notes have become or have been declared immediately due and payable under Section 12.1, the holder of any Note at the time outstanding may proceed to protect and enforce the rights of such holder by an action at law, suit in equity or other appropriate proceeding, whether for the specific performance of any agreement contained herein or in any Note, or for an injunction against a violation of any of the terms hereof or thereof, or in aid of the exercise of any power granted hereby or thereby or by law or otherwise.

No right, power or remedy conferred by this Agreement or by any Note upon any holder thereof shall be exclusive of any other right, power or remedy referred to herein or therein or now or hereafter available at law, in equity, by statute or otherwise. Without limiting the obligations of the Company under Section 15, the Company will pay to the holder of each Note on demand such further amount as shall be sufficient to cover all costs and expenses of such holder incurred in any enforcement or collection under this Section 12, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses and disbursements.

This Agreement and the Notes may be amended, and the observance of any term hereof or of the Notes may be waived (either retroactively or prospectively), with (and only with) the written consent of (y) prior to the Closing Date, the Company and the Purchasers who will be purchasing at least 51% of the Notes to be issued on the Closing Date and (z) from and after the Closing Date, the Company and the Required Holders, except that (i) no amendment or waiver of any of the provisions of (A) Section 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 21 hereof, or any defined term (as it is used in any such Section), and (B) solely with respect to amendments and waivers occurring prior to the Closing Date, Section 10.1, 10.2 or 10.3 hereof, will be effective (1) prior to the Closing Date, as to any Purchaser, unless consented to by such Purchaser in writing and (2) from and after the Closing Date, any holder of Notes unless consented to by such holder of Notes in writing, and (ii) no such amendment or waiver may, without the written consent of (A) prior to the Closing Date, all of the Purchasers and (B) from and after the Closing Date, all of the holders of Notes at the time outstanding affected thereby, (1) subject to the provisions of Section 12 relating to acceleration or rescission, change the amount or time of any prepayment or payment of principal of, or reduce the rate or change the time of payment or method of computation of interest (if such change results in a decrease in the interest rate) or of the Make-Whole Amount on, the Notes, (2) change the percentage of the principal amount of the Notes the holders or the Purchasers, in each case, of which are required to consent to any such amendment or waiver, or (3) amend any of Sections 8, 11(a), 11(b), 12, 17 or 20.
Section 17.2.    Solicitation of Holders of Notes    .
(a)    Solicitation. The Company will provide each holder of the Notes (irrespective of the amount of Notes then owned by it) with sufficient information, sufficiently far in advance of the date a decision is required, to enable such holder to make an informed and considered decision with respect to any proposed amendment, waiver or consent in respect of any of the provisions hereof or of the Notes. The Company will deliver executed or true and correct copies of each amendment, waiver or consent effected pursuant to the provisions of this Section 17 to each holder of outstanding

-46-


Notes promptly following the date on which it is executed and delivered by, or receives the consent or approval of, the requisite holders of Notes.
(b)    Payment. The Company will not directly or indirectly pay or cause to be paid any remuneration, whether by way of supplemental or additional interest, fee or otherwise, or grant any security or provide other credit support, to any holder of Notes as consideration for or as an inducement to the entering into by any holder of Notes of any waiver or amendment of any of the terms and provisions hereof or of the Subsidiary Guaranty unless such remuneration is concurrently paid, or security is concurrently granted or other credit support is concurrently provided, on the same terms, ratably to each holder of Notes then outstanding even if such holder did not consent to such waiver or amendment.
(c)    Consent in Contemplation of Transfer. Any consent made pursuant to this Section 17 by a holder of Notes that has transferred or has agreed to transfer its Notes to the Company, any Subsidiary or any Affiliate of the Company and has provided or has agreed to provide such written consent as a condition to such transfer shall be void and of no force or effect except solely as to such holder, and any amendments effected or waivers granted or to be effected or granted that would not have been or would not be so effected or granted but for such consent (and the consents of all other holders of Notes that were acquired under the same or similar conditions) shall be void and of no force or effect except solely as to such holder.
Section 17.3.    Binding Effect, Etc. Any amendment or waiver consented to as provided in this Section 17 applies equally to all holders of Notes and is binding upon them and upon each future holder of any Note and upon the Company without regard to whether such Note has been marked to indicate such amendment or waiver. No such amendment or waiver will extend to or affect any obligation, covenant, agreement, Default or Event of Default not expressly amended or waived or impair any right consequent thereon. No course of dealing between the Company and the holder of any Note nor any delay in exercising any rights hereunder or under any Note shall operate as a waiver of any rights of any holder of such Note. As used herein, the term “this Agreement” and references thereto shall mean this Agreement as it may from time to time be amended or supplemented.
Section 17.4.    Notes Held by Company, Etc. Solely for the purpose of determining whether the holders of the requisite percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding approved or consented to any amendment, waiver or consent to be given under this Agreement or the Notes, or have directed the taking of any action provided herein or in the Notes to be taken upon the direction of the holders of a specified percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding, Notes directly or indirectly owned by the Company or any of its Affiliates shall be deemed not to be outstanding.

SECTION 19.
REPRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS.
This Agreement and all documents relating thereto, including, without limitation, (a) consents, waivers and modifications that may hereafter be executed, (b) documents received by any Purchaser at the Closing (except the Notes themselves), and (c) financial statements, certificates and other information previously or hereafter furnished to any Purchaser, may be reproduced by such Purchaser by any photographic, photostatic, electronic, digital, or other similar process and such Purchaser may destroy any original document so reproduced. The Company agrees and stipulates that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any such reproduction shall be admissible in evidence as the original itself in any judicial or administrative proceeding (whether or not the original is in existence and whether or not such reproduction was made by such Purchaser in the regular course of business) and any enlargement, facsimile or further reproduction of such reproduction shall likewise be admissible in evidence. This Section 19 shall not prohibit the Company or any other holder of Notes from contesting any such reproduction to the same extent

-48-


that it could contest the original, or from introducing evidence to demonstrate the inaccuracy of any such reproduction.
SECTION 20.
CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
For the purposes of this Section 20, “Confidential Information” means information delivered to any Purchaser by or on behalf of the Company or any Subsidiary in connection with the transactions contemplated by or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement that was clearly marked or labeled or otherwise adequately identified when received by such Purchaser as being confidential information of the Company or such Subsidiary, provided that such term does not include information that (a) was publicly known or otherwise known to such Purchaser prior to the time of such disclosure and not obtained from a source known by such Purchaser to be subject to a confidentiality or fiduciary obligation or to have been obtained through unlawful means, (b) subsequently becomes publicly known through no act or omission by such Purchaser or any Person acting on such Purchaser’s behalf, (c) otherwise becomes known to such Purchaser other than (i) through disclosure by the Company or any Subsidiary or (ii) from a source known by such Purchaser to be subject to a confidentiality or fiduciary obligation or to have obtained through unlawful means or (d) constitutes financial statements delivered to such Purchaser under Section 7.1 that are otherwise publicly available. Each Purchaser will maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential Information in accordance with procedures adopted by such Purchaser in good faith to protect confidential information of third parties delivered to such Purchaser, provided that such Purchaser may deliver or disclose Confidential Information to (i) such Purchaser’s Affiliates and its and their respective directors, trustees, officers, employees, agents, and attorneys (to the extent such disclosure reasonably relates to the administration of the investment represented by such Purchaser’s Notes and the Person to whom such information is disclosed is directed to hold such information confidential in accordance with the terms of this Section 20), (ii) such Purchaser’s financial advisors and other professional advisors who agree to hold confidential the Confidential Information substantially in accordance with the terms of this Section 20, (iii) any other holder of any Note, (iv) any Institutional Investor to which such Purchaser sells or offers to sell such Note or any part thereof or any participation therein (if such Person has agreed in writing prior to its receipt of such Confidential Information to be bound by the provisions of this Section 20), (v) any Person from which such Purchaser offers to purchase any security of the Company (if such Person has agreed in writing prior to its receipt of such Confidential Information to be bound by the provisions of this Section 20), (vi) any Federal or state regulatory authority having jurisdiction over such Purchaser to the extent required by such authority, (vii) the NAIC or the SVO or, in each case any similar organization, or any nationally recognized rating agency that requires access to information about such Purchaser’s investment portfolio, or (viii) any other Person to which such delivery or disclosure may be necessary or appropriate (w) to effect compliance with any law, rule, regulation or order applicable to such Purchaser, but only to the extent so required, (x) in response

-49-


to any subpoena or other legal process, but only after reasonable notice to the Company to permit the Company to obtain a protective order (unless such subpoena or process prohibits such notice) and then only to the extent required by such subpoena or process, (y) in connection with any litigation to which such Purchaser is a party or (z) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to the extent such Purchaser may reasonably determine such delivery and disclosure to be necessary or appropriate in the enforcement or for the protection of the rights and remedies under such Purchaser’s Notes, the Subsidiary Guaranty and this Agreement. Each holder of a Note, by its acceptance of a Note, will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by and to be entitled to the benefits of this Section 20 as though it were a party to this Agreement. On reasonable request by the Company in connection with the delivery to any holder of a Note of information required to be delivered to such holder under this Agreement or requested by such holder (other than a holder that is a party to this Agreement or its nominee), such holder will enter into an agreement with the Company embodying the provisions of this Section 20.
SECTION 21.
SUBSTITUTION OF PURCHASER.    
Each Purchaser shall have the right to substitute any one of its Affiliates as the purchaser of the Notes that it has agreed to purchase hereunder, by written notice to the Company, which notice shall be signed by both such Purchaser and such Affiliate, shall contain such Affiliate’s agreement to be bound by this Agreement and shall contain a confirmation by such Affiliate of the accuracy with respect to it of the representations set forth in Section 6. Upon receipt of such notice, any reference to such Purchaser in this Agreement (other than in this Section 21), shall be deemed to refer to such Affiliate in lieu of such original Purchaser. In the event that such Affiliate is so substituted as a Purchaser hereunder and such Affiliate thereafter transfers to such original Purchaser all of the Notes then held by such Affiliate, upon receipt by the Company of notice of such transfer, any reference to such Affiliate as a “Purchaser” in this Agreement (other than in this Section 21), shall no longer be deemed to refer to such Affiliate, but shall refer to such original Purchaser, and such original Purchaser shall again have all the rights of an original holder of the Notes under this Agreement.
SECTION 22.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Section 22.1.    Successors and Assigns    . All covenants and other agreements contained in this Agreement by or on behalf of any of the parties hereto bind and inure to the benefit of their respective successors and assigns (including, without limitation, any subsequent holder of a Note) whether so expressed or not.
Section 22.2.    Payments Due on Non-Business Days. Anything in this Agreement or the Notes to the contrary notwithstanding (but without limiting the requirement in Section 8.4 that the

-50-


notice of any optional prepayment specify a Business Day as the date fixed for such prepayment), any payment of principal of or Make-Whole Amount or interest on any Note that is due on a date other than a Business Day shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day without including the additional days elapsed in the computation of the interest payable on such next succeeding Business Day; provided that if the maturity date of any Note is a date other than a Business Day, the payment otherwise due on such maturity date shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and shall include the additional days elapsed in the computation of interest payable on such next succeeding Business Day.
Section 22.3.    Accounting Terms. All accounting terms used herein that are not expressly defined in this Agreement have the meanings respectively given to them in accordance with GAAP. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, (i) all computations made pursuant to this Agreement shall be made in accordance with Agreement Accounting Principles and (ii) all consolidated financial statements shall be prepared in accordance with GAAP. For purposes of determining compliance with the financial covenants set out in this Agreement, any election by the Company to measure an item of Indebtedness using fair value (as permitted by Accounting Standards Codification 825-10-25 (previously referred to as Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 159) or any other Accounting Standards Codification or Financial Accounting Standard having a similar result or effect) shall be disregarded and such determination shall be made by valuing indebtedness at 100% of the outstanding principal amount (except to the extent that such Indebtedness was issued at a discount or premium in which case the value of such indebtedness shall be valued at the 100% of the outstanding principal amount less any unamortized discount or plus any unamortized premium, as the case may be).
Section 22.4.    Severability. Any provision of this Agreement that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall (to the full extent permitted by law) not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
Section 22.5.    Construction. Each covenant contained herein shall be construed (absent express provision to the contrary) as being independent of each other covenant contained herein, so that compliance with any one covenant shall not (absent such an express contrary provision) be deemed to excuse compliance with any other covenant. Where any provision herein refers to action to be taken by any Person, or which such Person is prohibited from taking, such provision shall be applicable whether such action is taken directly or indirectly by such Person.
For the avoidance of doubt, all Schedules and Exhibits attached to this Agreement shall be deemed to be a part hereof.

-51-


Section 22.6.    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original but all of which together shall constitute one instrument. Each counterpart may consist of a number of copies hereof, each signed by less than all, but together signed by all, of the parties hereto.
Section 22.7.    Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and the rights of the parties shall be governed by, the law of the State of New York excluding choice-of-law principles of the law of such State that would permit the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than such State.
Section 22.8.    Jurisdiction and Process; Waiver of Jury Trial    . (a) The Company irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any New York State or Federal court sitting in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Notes. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Company irrevocably waives and agrees not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise, any claim that it is not subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court and any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
(b)    The Company consents to process being served by or on behalf of any holder of Notes in any suit, action or proceeding of the nature referred to in Section 22.8(a) by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to it at its address specified in Section 18 or at such other address of which such holder shall then have been notified pursuant to said Section. The Company agrees that such service upon receipt (i) shall be deemed in every respect effective service of process upon it in any such suit, action or proceeding and (ii) shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, be taken and held to be valid personal service upon and personal delivery to it. Notices hereunder shall be conclusively presumed received as evidenced by a delivery receipt furnished by the United States Postal Service or any reputable commercial delivery service.
(c)    Nothing in this Section 22.8 shall affect the right of any holder of a Note to serve process in any manner permitted by law, or limit any right that the holders of any of the Notes may have to bring proceedings against the Company in the courts of any appropriate jurisdiction or to enforce in any lawful manner a judgment obtained in one jurisdiction in any other jurisdiction.
(d)    THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION BROUGHT ON OR WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE NOTES OR ANY OTHER DOCUMENT EXECUTED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THEREWITH.

SECTION 2.
GUARANTY OF NOTES AND NOTE PURCHASE AGREEMENT.
(a)    Subject to the limitation set forth in Section 2(b) hereof, each Guarantor jointly and severally does hereby irrevocably, absolutely and unconditionally guarantee unto the Holders: (1) the full and prompt payment of the principal of, Make-Whole Amount, if any, interest on the Notes from time to time outstanding and all other amounts from time to time owing by the Company under the Note Agreement and the Notes, as and when such payments shall become due and payable whether by lapse of time, upon redemption or prepayment, by extension or by acceleration or declaration or otherwise (including (to the extent legally enforceable) interest due on overdue payments of principal, Make-Whole Amount, if any, or interest at the rate set forth in the Notes and interest accruing at the then applicable rate provided in the Notes after the filing of any petition in bankruptcy, or the commencement of any insolvency, reorganization or like proceeding, relating to the Company, whether or not a claim for post-filing or post-petition interest is allowed in such proceeding) in Federal or other immediately available funds of the United States of America which at the time of payment or demand therefor shall be legal tender for the payment of public and private debts, (2) the full and prompt performance and observance by the Company of each and all of the obligations, covenants and agreements required to be performed or owed by the Company under the terms of the Notes and the Note Purchase Agreement and (3) the full and prompt payment, upon demand by any Holder, of all reasonable costs and expenses, legal or otherwise (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), if any, as shall have been expended or incurred in the protection or enforcement of any rights, privileges or liabilities in favor of the Holders under or in respect of the Notes, the Note Purchase Agreement or under this Guaranty or in any consultation or action in connection therewith or herewith and in each and every case irrespective of the validity, regularity, or enforcement of any of the Notes or Note Purchase Agreement or any of the terms thereof or any other like circumstance or circumstances.

(c)    This Guaranty will terminate automatically (i) upon the indefeasible payment in full of the Notes and all other amounts owing under the Note Purchase Agreement, the Notes and this Guaranty and (ii) in part, as to any Guarantor, upon (1) the release of such Guarantor pursuant to Section 2.2(b) of the Note Purchase Agreement or (2) the consolidation, merger or transfer of substantially all of the assets of such Guarantor pursuant to Section 10.5 or Section 10.6 of the Note Purchase Agreement but subject to the terms of Section 2.2(b) of the Note Purchase Agreement; provided however, that notwithstanding clause (i) of this Section 2(c), after the indefeasible payment in full of the Notes and all other amounts then owing under the Note Purchase Agreement, the Notes and this Guaranty, this Guaranty shall continue with respect to any and all obligations (including any indemnification obligations) arising under the Note Purchase Agreement, the Notes or this Guaranty which by their express terms survive the indefeasible payment in full of the Notes and all other amounts then owing under the Note Purchase Agreement, the Notes and this Guaranty.

The covenants and agreements on the part of the Guarantors herein contained shall take effect as joint and several covenants and agreements, and references to the Guarantors shall take effect as references to each of them and none of them shall be released from liability hereunder by reason of the guarantee ceasing to be binding as a continuing security on any other of them.

(8)    the failure of any Guarantor to receive any benefit from or as a result of its execution, delivery and performance of this Guaranty; or

-7-



provided that the specific enumeration of the above-mentioned acts, failures or omissions shall not be deemed to exclude any other acts, failures or omissions, though not specifically mentioned above, it being the purpose and intent of this Guaranty and the parties hereto that the obligations of each Guarantor shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be discharged, impaired or varied except by the payment of the principal of, Make-Whole Amount, if any, and interest on the Notes in accordance with their respective terms whenever the same shall become due and payable as in the Notes provided and all other sums due and payable under the Note Purchase Agreement, at the place specified in and all in the manner and with the effect provided in the Notes and the Note Purchase Agreement, as each may be amended or modified from time to time. Without limiting the foregoing, it is understood that repeated and successive demands may be made and recoveries may be had hereunder as and when, from time to time, the Company shall default under or in respect of the terms of the Notes or the Note Purchase Agreement and that notwithstanding recovery hereunder for or in respect of any given default or defaults by the Company under the Notes or the Note Purchase Agreement, this Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect and shall apply to each and every subsequent default.
(d)    All rights of any Holder may be transferred or assigned at any time and shall be considered to be transferred or assigned at any time or from time to time upon the transfer of such Note whether with or without the consent of or notice to the Guarantors under this Guaranty or to the Company.
(e)    To the extent of any payments made under this Guaranty, the Guarantors shall be subrogated to the rights of the Holder or Holders upon whose Notes such payment was made, but each Guarantor covenants and agrees that such right of subrogation shall be junior and subordinate in right of payment to the prior indefeasible final payment in cash in full of all amounts due and owing by the Company with respect to the Notes and the Note Purchase Agreement and by the Guarantors under this Guaranty, and the Guarantors shall not take any action to enforce such right of subrogation, and the Guarantors shall not accept any payment in respect of such right of subrogation, until all amounts due and owing by the Company under or in respect of the Notes and the Note Purchase Agreement and all amounts due and owing by the Guarantors hereunder have indefeasibly been finally paid in cash in full. If any amount shall be paid to any Guarantor in violation of the preceding sentence at any time prior to the indefeasible payment in cash in full of the Notes and all other amounts payable under the Notes, the Note Purchase Agreement and this Guaranty, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Holders and shall forthwith be paid to the Holders to be credited and applied to the amounts due or to become due with respect to the Notes and all other amounts payable under the Note Purchase Agreement and this Guaranty, whether matured or unmatured. Each Guarantor acknowledges that it has received direct and indirect benefits from the financing arrangements contemplated by the Note Purchase Agreement and that

-8-



the waiver set forth in this paragraph (e) is knowingly made as a result of the receipt of such benefits.
(f)    The Guarantors hereby agree, as among themselves, that if any Guarantor shall become an Excess Funding Guarantor (as defined below) (but subject to the succeeding provisions of this Section 4(f)), pay to such Excess Funding Guarantor an amount equal to such Guarantor’s Pro Rata Share (as defined below and determined, for this purpose, without reference to the properties, assets, liabilities and debts of such Excess Funding Guarantor) of such Excess Payment (as defined below). The payment obligation of any Guarantor to any Excess Funding Guarantor under this Section 4(f) shall be subordinate and subject in right of payment to the prior payment in full of the obligations of such Guarantor under the other provisions of this Guaranty, and such Excess Funding Guarantor shall not exercise any right or remedy with respect to such excess until payment and satisfaction in full of all of such obligations. For purposes hereof, (a) “Excess Funding Guarantor” shall mean, in respect of any obligations arising under the other provisions of this Guaranty (hereafter, the “Guarantied Obligations”), a Guarantor that has paid an amount in excess of its Pro Rata Share of the Guarantied Obligations; (b) “Excess Payment” shall mean, in respect of any Guarantied Obligations, the amount paid by an Excess Funding Guarantor in excess of its Pro Rata Share of such Guarantied Obligations; and (c) “Pro Rata Share”, for the purposes of this Section 4(f), shall mean, for any Guarantor, the ratio (expressed as a percentage) of (i) the amount by which the aggregate present fair saleable value of all of its assets and properties exceeds the amount of all debts and liabilities of such Guarantor (including contingent, subordinated, unmatured, and unliquidated liabilities, but excluding the obligations of such Guarantor hereunder) to (ii) the amount by which the aggregate present fair saleable value of all assets and other properties of the Company and all of the Guarantors exceeds the amount of all of the debts and liabilities (including contingent, subordinated, unmatured, and unliquidated liabilities, but excluding the obligations of the Company under the Note Purchase Agreement and the Guarantors hereunder) of the Company and all of the Guarantors, all as of the date of the Closing (if any Guarantor becomes a party hereto subsequent to the date of the Closing, then for the purposes of this Section 4(f) such subsequent Guarantor shall be deemed to have been a Guarantor as of the date of the Closing and the information pertaining to, and only pertaining to, such Guarantor as of the date such Guarantor became a Guarantor shall be deemed true as of the date of the Closing).
(g)    Each Guarantor agrees that to the extent the Company, any other Guarantor or any other Person makes any payment on any Note, which payment or any part thereof is subsequently invalidated, voided, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside, recovered, rescinded or is required to be retained by or repaid to a trustee, receiver, or any other Person under any bankruptcy code, common law, or equitable cause, then and to the extent of such payment, the obligation or the part thereof intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect with respect to the Guarantors’ obligations hereunder, as if said payment had not been made. The liability

-9-



of the Guarantors hereunder shall not be reduced or discharged, in whole or in part, by any payment to any Holder from any source that is thereafter paid, returned or refunded in whole or in part by reason of the assertion of a claim of any kind relating thereto, including, but not limited to, any claim for breach of contract, breach of warranty, preference, illegality, invalidity, or fraud asserted by any account debtor or by any other Person.
(h)    No Holder shall be under any obligation: (1) to marshal any assets in favor of the Guarantors or in payment of any or all of the liabilities of the Company under or in respect of the Notes or the obligations of the Guarantors hereunder or (2) to pursue any other remedy that the Guarantors may or may not be able to pursue themselves and that may lighten the Guarantors’ burden, any right to which each Guarantor hereby expressly waives.
(i)    The obligations of each Guarantor under this Guaranty rank pari passu in right of payment with all other Indebtedness of such Guarantor which is not secured or which is not expressly subordinated in right of payment to any other Indebtedness of such Guarantor.
SECTION 5.
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE GUARANTORS.
Each Guarantor represents and warrants to each Holder that:
(a)    Such Guarantor is a corporation or other legal entity duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization, and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation or other legal entity and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which such qualification is required by law, other than those jurisdictions as to which the failure to be so qualified or in good standing would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Such Guarantor has the power and authority to own or hold under lease the properties it purports to own or hold under lease, to transact the business it transacts and proposes to transact, to execute and deliver this Guaranty and to perform the provisions hereof.
(b)    This Guaranty has been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of such Guarantor, and this Guaranty constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Guarantor enforceable against such Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by (1) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (2) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).
(c)    The execution, delivery and performance by such Guarantor of this Guaranty will not (1) contravene, result in any breach of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation of any Lien in respect of any property of such Guarantor under (i) any indenture, mortgage, deed of

-10-



trust, loan, purchase or credit agreement, (ii) charter document or by-laws (or similar organizational documents), or (iii) any other agreement or instrument to which such Guarantor is bound or by which such Guarantor may be bound or affected, (2) conflict with or result in a breach of any of the terms, conditions or provisions of any order, judgment, decree, or ruling of any court, arbitrator or Governmental Authority applicable to such Guarantor or (3) violate any provision of any statute or other rule or regulation of any Governmental Authority applicable to such Guarantor, except, in each case, in such instances that would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
(d)    No consent, approval or authorization of, or registration, filing or declaration with, any Governmental Authority is required in connection with the execution, delivery or performance by such Guarantor of this Guaranty.
(e)    After giving effect to the limitation set forth in Section 2(b) hereof, such Guarantor is solvent, has capital not unreasonably small in relation to its business or any contemplated or undertaken transaction and has assets having a value both at fair valuation and at present fair salable value greater than the amount required to pay its debts as they become due and greater than the amount that will be required to pay its probable liability on its existing debts as they become absolute and matured. Such Guarantor does not intend to incur, or believe or should have believed that it will incur, debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as they become due. After giving effect to the limitation set forth in Section 2(b) hereof, such Guarantor will not be rendered insolvent by the execution and delivery of, and performance of its obligations under, this Guaranty. Such Guarantor does not intend to hinder, delay or defraud its creditors by or through the execution and delivery of, or performance of its obligations under, this Guaranty.
SECTION 6.
GUARANTOR COVENANTS.
From and after the date of issuance of the Notes by the Company and continuing so long as any amount remains unpaid thereon each Guarantor agrees to comply with the terms and provisions of Sections 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 and 9.5 of the Note Purchase Agreement, insofar as such provisions apply to such Guarantor, as if said Sections were set forth herein in full.
SECTION 7.
PAYMENTS FREE AND CLEAR OF TAXES.
Each payment by any Guarantor shall be made, under all circumstances, without setoff, counterclaim or reduction for, and free from and clear of, and without deduction for or because of, any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, duties, fees, charges, deductions, withholding, restrictions or conditions of any nature whatsoever (hereinafter called “Relevant Taxes”) imposed, levied, collected, assessed, deducted or withheld by the government of any country or jurisdiction

-11-



(or any authority therein or thereof) other than the United States of America from or through which payments hereunder or on or in respect of the Notes are actually made (each a “Taxing Jurisdiction”), unless such imposition, levy, collection, assessment, deduction, withholding or other restriction or condition is required by law. If a Guarantor is required by law to make any payment under this Guaranty subject to such deduction, withholding or other restriction or condition, then such Guarantor shall forthwith (i) pay over to the government or taxing authority imposing such tax the full amount required to be deducted, withheld from or otherwise paid by such Guarantor (including the full amount required to be deducted or withheld from or otherwise paid by such Guarantor in respect of the Tax Indemnity Amounts (as defined below)); (ii) pay each Holder such additional amounts (“Tax Indemnity Amounts”) as may be necessary in order that the net amount of every payment made to each Holder, after provision for payment of such Relevant Taxes (including any required deduction, withholding or other payment of tax on or with respect to such Tax Indemnity Amounts), shall be equal to the amount which such holder would have received had there been no imposition, levy, collection, assessment, deduction, withholding or other restriction or condition. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7, no such Tax Indemnity Amounts shall be payable for or on account of any tax, assessment or other governmental charge that is imposed or withheld by reason of the failure of the Holder to complete, execute and deliver to such Guarantor any form or document to the extent applicable to such Holder that may be required by law or by reason of administration of such law and which is reasonably requested in writing to be delivered by such Guarantor in order to enable such Guarantor to make payments pursuant to this Section 7 without deduction or withholding for taxes, assessments or governmental charges, or with deduction or withholding of such lesser amount, which form or document shall be delivered within one hundred twenty days of a written request therefor by such Guarantor. If in connection with the payment of any such Tax Indemnity Amounts, any Holder that is a United States person within the meaning of the Code or a foreign person engaged in a trade or business within the United States of America, incurs taxes imposed by the United States of America or any political subdivision or taxing authority therein (“United States Taxes”) on such Tax Indemnity Amounts, such Guarantor shall pay to such Holder such further amount as will insure that the net amount actually received by that Holder (taking into account any withholding or deduction in respect of any such further amount) is equal to the amount which such Holder would have received after all United States Taxes on such Tax Indemnity Amounts and on any further amount had such withholding or deduction not been made. If any payment is made by any Guarantor to or for the account of the Holder of any Note after deduction for or on account of any Relevant Taxes, and increased payments are made by any Guarantor pursuant to this Paragraph, then, if such Holder determines that it has received or been granted a refund or received the benefit of a credit of such Relevant Taxes, such Holder shall, to the extent that it can do so without prejudice to the retention of the amount of such refund or credit, reimburse to the Guarantors such amount as such Holder shall determine to be attributable to the Relevant Taxes or deduction or withholding. Nothing herein contained shall interfere with the right

-12-



of the Holder of any Note to arrange its tax affairs in whatever manner it thinks fit and, in particular, no Holder of any Note shall be under any obligation to claim relief from its corporate profits or similar tax liability in respect of such Relevant Tax in priority to any other claims, reliefs, credits or deductions available to it or oblige any Holder of any Note to disclose any information relating to its tax affairs or any computations in respect thereof.
SECTION 8.
GOVERNING LAW.
(a)    This Guaranty shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of New York applicable therein.
(b)    Each Guarantor hereby (1) irrevocably submits and consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within the County of New York, State of New York (or if such court lacks jurisdiction, the State courts located therein), and irrevocably agrees that all actions or proceedings relating to this Guaranty may be litigated in such courts, and (2) waives any objection which it may have based on improper venue or forum non conveniens to the conduct of any proceeding in any such court and waives personal service of any and all process upon it, and (3) consents that all such service of process be made by delivery to it at the address of such Person set forth in Section 11 below or to its agent referred to below at such agent’s address set forth below (with a courtesy copy to such Guarantor at the address set forth in Section 11) and that service so made shall be deemed to be completed upon actual receipt. If any Guarantor who delivers a Guaranty Supplement is not organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, such Guarantor shall, in connection with the delivery of a Guaranty Supplement, irrevocably appoint an agent for the purpose of accepting service of any process within the State of New York. Nothing contained in this section shall affect the right of any Holder to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or to bring any action or proceeding in the courts of any jurisdiction against a Guarantor or to enforce a judgment obtained in the courts of any other jurisdiction.
(c)    The parties hereto waive any right to have a jury participate in resolving any dispute, whether sounding in contract, tort, or otherwise, between them arising out of, connected with, related to or incidental to the relationship established between them in connection with this Guaranty, any financing agreement, any loan party document or any other instrument, document or agreement executed or delivered in connection herewith or the transactions related hereto. The parties hereto hereby agree and consent that any such claim, demand, action or cause of action shall be decided by court trial without a jury and that any of them may file an original counterpart or a copy of this Guaranty with any court as written evidence of the consent of the parties hereto to the waiver of their right to trial by jury.
SECTION 9.
JUDGMENTS.

-13-



Any payment made by a Guarantor to any Holder for the account of any such Holder in respect of any amount payable by such Guarantor shall be made in the lawful currency of the United States of America (“U.S. Dollars”). Any amount received or recovered by such Holder other than in U.S. Dollars (whether as a result of, or of the enforcement of, a judgment or order of any court, or in the liquidation or dissolution of such Guarantor or otherwise) in respect of any such sum expressed to be due hereunder or under the Notes shall constitute a discharge of such Guarantor only to the extent of the amount of U.S. Dollars which such Holder is able, in accordance with normal banking procedures, to purchase with the amount so received or recovered in that other currency on the date of the receipt or recovery (or, if it is not practicable to make that purchase on such date, on the first date on which it is practicable to do so). If the amount of U.S. Dollars so purchased is less than the amount of U.S. Dollars expressed to be due hereunder or under the Notes, the Company shall indemnify such Holder against any loss sustained by such Holder as a result, and in any event, such Guarantor shall indemnify such Holder against the cost of making any such purchase. These indemnities shall constitute a separate and independent obligation from the other obligations herein, shall give rise to a separate and independent cause of action, shall apply irrespective of any indulgence granted by any such Holder, shall continue in full force and effect despite any judgment, order, claim or proof for a liquidated amount in respect of any such sum due hereunder or any judgment or order and shall survive the payment of the Notes and the termination of this Guaranty.
SECTION 10.
AMENDMENTS, WAIVERS AND CONSENTS.
(a)    This Guaranty may be amended, and the observance of any term hereof may be waived (either retroactively or prospectively), with (and only with) the written consent of each Guarantor and the Required Holders; provided, however, that any amendment hereof with respect to the liability of a Guarantor under this Guaranty pursuant to Section 2(b) hereof shall not require the written consent of the Guarantors or the Required Holders and shall be deemed to have been automatically consented to by the Guarantors and each Holder.
(b)    The Guarantors (or the Company) will provide each Holder (irrespective of the amount of Notes then owned by it) with sufficient information, sufficiently far in advance of the date a decision is required, to enable such Holder to make an informed and considered decision with respect to any proposed amendment, waiver or consent in respect of any of the provisions hereof. The Guarantors (or the Company) will deliver executed or true and correct copies of each amendment, waiver or consent effected pursuant to the provisions of this Section 10 to each Holder promptly following the date on which it is executed and delivered by, or receives the consent or approval of, the requisite Holders.

-14-



(c)    The Guarantors will not directly or indirectly pay or cause to be paid any remuneration, whether by way of fee or otherwise, or grant any security, to any Holder as consideration for or as an inducement to the entering into by any Holder of any waiver or amendment of any of the terms and provisions hereof unless such remuneration is concurrently paid, or security is concurrently granted, on the same terms, ratably to each Holder even if such Holder did not consent to such waiver or amendment.
(d)    Any amendment or waiver consented to as provided in this Section 10 applies equally to all Holders and is binding upon them and upon each future holder and upon the Guarantors. No such amendment or waiver will extend to or affect any obligation, covenant or agreement not expressly amended or waived or impair any right consequent thereon. No course of dealing between the Guarantors and any Holder nor any delay in exercising any rights hereunder shall operate as a waiver of any rights of any Holder. As used herein, the term “this Guaranty” and references thereto shall mean this Guaranty as it may from time to time be amended or supplemented.
(e)    Solely for the purpose of determining whether the Holders of the requisite percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Notes then outstanding approved or consented to any amendment, waiver or consent to be given under this Guaranty, Notes directly or indirectly owned by any Guarantor, the Company or any of their respective subsidiaries or Affiliates shall be deemed not to be outstanding.
SECTION 11.
NOTICES.
All notices and communications provided for hereunder shall be in writing and sent (a) by telefacsimile if the sender on the same day sends a confirming copy of such notice by a recognized overnight delivery service (charges prepaid), or (b) by registered or certified mail with return receipt requested (postage prepaid), or (c) by a recognized overnight delivery service (with charges prepaid). Any such notice must be sent:
(1)    if to an Initial Note Purchaser or such Initial Note Purchaser’s nominee, to such Initial Note Purchaser or such Initial Note Purchaser’s nominee at the address specified for such communications in Schedule A to the Note Purchase Agreement, or at such other address as such Initial Note Purchaser or such Initial Note Purchaser’s nominee shall have specified to any Guarantor or the Company in writing,
(2)    if to any other Holder, to such Holder at such address as such Holder shall have specified to any Guarantor or the Company in writing, or

-15-



(3)    if to any Guarantor, to such Guarantor c/o the Company at its address set forth at the beginning of the Note Purchase Agreement to the attention of John T. Kuelbs, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, or at such other address or to the attention of such other person as such Guarantor shall have specified to the Holders in writing.
Notices under this Section 11 will be deemed given only when actually received.
Each document, instrument, financial statement, report, notice or other communication delivered in connection with this Guaranty shall be in English or accompanied by an English translation thereof.
This Guaranty has been prepared and signed in English and the parties hereto agree that the English version hereof and thereof (to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law) shall be the only version valid for the purpose of the interpretation and construction hereof and thereof notwithstanding the preparation of any translation into another language hereof or thereof, whether official or otherwise or whether prepared in relation to any proceedings which may be brought in any jurisdiction in respect hereof or thereof.
SECTION 12.
MISCELLANEOUS.
(a)    No remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to any Holder is intended to be exclusive of any other available remedy or remedies, but each and every such remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given under this Guaranty now or hereafter existing at law or in equity. No delay or omission to exercise any right or power accruing upon any default, omission or failure of performance hereunder shall impair any such right or power or shall be construed to be a waiver thereof but any such right or power may be exercised from time to time and as often as may be deemed expedient. In order to entitle any Holder to exercise any remedy reserved to it under the Guaranty, it shall not be necessary for such Holder to physically produce its Note in any proceedings instituted by it or to give any notice, other than such notice as may be herein expressly required.
(b)    The Guarantors will pay all sums becoming due under this Guaranty by the method and at the address specified in the Note Purchase Agreement, or by such other method or at such other address as any Holder shall have from time to time specified to the Guarantors in writing for such purpose, without the presentation or surrender of this Guaranty or any Note.
(c)    Any provision of this Guaranty that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability

-16-



without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall (to the full extent permitted by law) not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
(d)    If the whole or any part of this Guaranty shall be now or hereafter become unenforceable against any one or more of the Guarantors for any reason whatsoever or if it is not executed by any one or more of the Guarantors, this Guaranty shall nevertheless be and remain fully binding upon and enforceable against each other Guarantor as if it had been made and delivered only by such other Guarantors.
(e)    This Guaranty shall be binding upon each Guarantor and its successors and assigns and shall inure to the benefit of each Holder and its successors and assigns so long as its Notes remain outstanding and unpaid.
(f)    This Guaranty may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original but all of which together shall constitute one instrument. Each counterpart may consist of a number of copies hereof, each signed by less than all, but together signed by all, of the parties hereto.
SECTION 13.
INDEMNITY.
To the fullest extent of applicable law, each Guarantor shall indemnify and save each Holder harmless from and against any losses which may arise by virtue of any of the obligations hereby guaranteed being or becoming for any reason whatsoever in whole or in part void, voidable, contrary to law, invalid, ineffective or otherwise unenforceable by the Holder or any of them in accordance with its terms (all of the foregoing collectively, an “Indemnifiable Circumstance”). For greater certainty, these losses shall include without limitation all obligations hereby guaranteed which would have been payable by the Company but for the existence of an Indemnifiable Circumstance, net of any withholding or deduction of or on account of any Relevant Tax in accordance with Section 7 hereof; provided, however, that the extent of the Guarantor’s aggregate liability under this Section 13 shall not at any time exceed the amount (but for any Indemnifiable Circumstance) otherwise guaranteed pursuant to Section 2.
