         not available from one of such rating  agencies,  the  Applicable  Margin shall be determined on the basis
         of the rating  from the other  rating  agency.  In the event  that,  at any time,  ratings  from each such
         rating  agency are not available for companies  generally,  the  Applicable  Margin shall be determined on
         the basis of the last  rating(s)  made  available.  In the event that,  at any time,  such ratings are not
         available for the Borrower but are generally  available for other  companies,  then the Applicable  Margin
         shall be as for Level 8.

                  "Approved Fund":  with respect to any Lender that is a fund that invests in bank loans, any
         other fund that invests in bank loans and is advised or managed by the same investment advisor as such

Lender severally agrees to make revolving credit loans to the Borrower from time to time during the Commitment
Period in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding that will not result in such Lender's
Exposure exceeding such Lender's Commitment.  During the Commitment Period the Borrower may use the Commitments
by borrowing, prepaying the Loans in whole or in part, and reborrowing, all in accordance with the terms and
conditions hereof.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, in no event may Loans be borrowed
under this Section 2 if, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate principal amount of the Total Exposures at
such time would exceed the Total Commitments then in effect.  The Loans may from time to time be Eurodollar Loans
or ABR Loans, as determined by the Borrower and notified to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Sections
2.2 and 2.6.

         (b)      In the event that the Borrower wishes from time to time to increase the Total Commitments, it
shall notify the Administrative Agent in writing of the amount (the "Commitment Increase Amount") of such
proposed increase (such notice, a "Commitment Increase Notice"), and the Administrative Agent shall notify each
Lender of such proposed increase.  The Borrower may, at its election (i) offer one or more of the Lenders the
opportunity to participate in all or a portion of the Commitment Increase Amount pursuant to paragraph (d) below
and/or (ii) with the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender (which consent shall not be
unreasonably withheld or delayed), offer one or more additional banks, financial institutions or other entities
the opportunity to participate in all or a portion of the Commitment Increase Amount pursuant to paragraph (c)
below.  Each Commitment Increase Notice shall specify which Lenders and/or banks, financial institutions or other
entities the Borrower desires to participate in such Commitment increase.  The Borrower or, if requested by the
Borrower, the Administrative Agent, will notify such Lenders and/or banks, financial institutions or other
entities of such offer.  Each Commitment Increase Amount shall be at least $50,000,000.

         (c)      Any additional bank, financial institution or other entity which the Borrower selects to offer
participation in the increased Commitments and which elects to become a party to this Agreement and provide a
Commitment in an amount so offered and accepted by it pursuant to Section 2.1(b)(ii) shall execute a New Lender
Supplement with the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit F, whereupon such
bank, financial institution or other entity (herein called a "New Lender") shall become a Lender for all purposes
and to the same extent as if originally a party hereto and shall be bound by and entitled to the benefits of this
Agreement, and Schedule 1.1 shall be deemed to be amended to add the name and Commitment of such New Lender,
provided that the Commitment of any such new Lender shall be in an amount not less than $10,000,000.

         (d)      Any Lender which accepts an offer to it by the Borrower to increase its Commitment pursuant to
Section 2.1(b)(i) shall, in each case, execute a Commitment Increase Supplement with the Borrower and the
Administrative Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit G, whereupon such Lender shall be bound by and
entitled to the benefits of this Agreement with respect to the full amount of its Commitment as so increased, and
Schedule 1.1 shall be deemed to be amended to so increase the Commitment of such Lender.


Page 12


         (e)      Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.1, (i) in no event shall any
increase effected pursuant to this Section 2.1 cause the Total Commitments hereunder to exceed $1,125,000,000 and
(ii) no Lender shall have any obligation to increase its Commitment unless it agrees to do so in its sole
discretion.

         (f)      On the effective date of each increase in the Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.1 and
notwithstanding other provisions of this Agreement to the contrary (i) the Lenders shall make such payments as
shall be directed by the Administrative Agent in order that the outstanding Loans shall be held ratably by the
Lenders based on their respective Commitments and (ii) participations in outstanding Letters of Credit shall be
deemed to be reallocated according to the respective Commitments of the Lenders.  Payments of interest, fees and
commissions with respect to the Loans and Letters of Credit shall be made to give effect to any adjustments in
the Loans and participations in the Letters of Credit made pursuant to this Section 2.1.

         (g)      On the effective date of each increase in the Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.1, the
conditions set forth in paragraphs (b), (c), (e) (with appropriate modifications) and (f) of Section 5.1 shall
have been satisfied with respect to such increased Commitments as if such paragraphs applied to such increase,
mutatis mutandis.

2.2.     Procedure for Borrowing.  The Borrower may borrow under the Commitments during the Commitment Period on
any Business Day, provided that the Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable notice, which notice
must be executed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower and received by the Administrative Agent prior to (a)
12:30 P.M., New York City time, three Business Days prior to the requested Borrowing Date, in the case of
Eurodollar Loans, or (b) 12:00 Noon, New York City time, on the requested Borrowing Date, in the case of ABR
Loans.  Each such notice shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, (ii) the requested Borrowing Date, (iii)
whether the borrowing is to be of Eurodollar Loans, ABR Loans, or a combination thereof and (iv) if the borrowing
is to be entirely or partly of Eurodollar Loans, the respective lengths of the initial Interest Periods
therefor.  Each borrowing under the Commitments shall be in an amount equal to (x) in the case of ABR Loans,
$5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof and (y) in the case of Eurodollar Loans,
$10,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof; provided that a borrowing under the Commitments
that is an ABR Loan may be in any aggregate amount that is required to finance the reimbursement of all or a part
of an LC Disbursement as contemplated by Section 3.5.  Upon receipt of any such notice from the Borrower, the
Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender thereof.  Each Lender will make the amount of its pro rata
share of each borrowing available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Borrower at the office of
the Administrative Agent specified in Section 9.2 prior to 1:00 P.M., New York City time, on the Borrowing Date
requested by the Borrower in funds immediately available to the Administrative Agent.  Such borrowing will then
be made available to the Borrower by the Administrative Agent crediting the account of the Borrower on the books
of such office with the aggregate of the amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by the Lenders
promptly upon receipt thereof and in like funds as received by the Administrative Agent; provided that Loans made
to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 3.5 shall be remitted by the
Administrative Agent to the applicable Issuing Lender.



Page 13


2.3.     Fees.  (a)  The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender a
Facility Fee for the period from and including the first day of the Commitment Period to and excluding the
Termination Date, computed at the Facility Fee Rate on the average daily amount of the Commitment of such Lender
(or, following termination of the Commitment of such Lender, on the average daily amount of the Loans and LC
Exposure of such Lender) during the period for which payment is made, payable in arrears on the last day of each
March, June, September and December and on the Termination Date and, following termination of the Commitments, on
demand.

(b)      The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for its own account any fees separately agreed to
by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing.

(c)      The Borrower agrees to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender (including the
Issuing Lender) a Letter of Credit Participation Fee with respect to its participations in Letters of Credit,
which shall accrue at the Letter of Credit Participation Fee Rate on the average daily amount of such Lender's LC
Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the period from and
including the Closing Date to but excluding the later of the date on which such Lender's Commitment terminates
and the date on which such Lender ceases to have any LC Exposure, and (ii) to the Issuing Lender a fronting fee
(the "Letter of Credit Fronting Fee"), which shall accrue at the rate per annum separately agreed with the
Issuing Lender on the average daily amount of the LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to
unreimbursed LC Disbursements) during the period from and including the Closing Date to but excluding the later
of the date of termination of the Commitments and the date on which there ceases to be any LC Exposure, as well
as the Issuing Lender's standard fees with respect to the issuance, amendment, renewal, extension or
administration of any Letter of Credit or processing of drawings thereunder, such standard fees of JPMorgan Chase
Bank as Issuing Lender as in effect as of the Closing Date having been disclosed in writing to Borrower prior to
the Closing Date.  Letter of Credit Participation Fees and Letter of Credit Fronting Fees accrued through and
including the last day of March, June, September and December of each year shall be payable on each such last
day, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Closing Date; provided that all such fees shall be
payable on the date on which the Commitments terminate and any such fees accruing after the date on which the
Commitments terminate shall be payable on demand.  Any other fees payable to the Issuing Lender pursuant to this
paragraph shall be payable within 15 Business Days after demand.

2.4.     Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.  (a)  The Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Loan of such Lender
on the Termination Date (or such earlier date on which the Loans become due and payable pursuant to Section 7).
The Borrower hereby further agrees to pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Loans from time to time
outstanding from the date hereof until payment in full thereof at the rates per annum, and on the dates, set
forth in Section 2.8.

(b)      Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing
indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan of such Lender from time to time, including
the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time under this Agreement.


Page 14


(c)      The Administrative Agent shall maintain the Register pursuant to Section 9.6(d), and a subaccount
therein for each Lender, in which shall be recorded (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the Type thereof
and each Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to
become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) both the amount of any sum received
by the Administrative Agent hereunder from the Borrower and each Lender's share thereof.

(d)      The entries made in the Register and the accounts of each Lender maintained pursuant to Section 2.4(b)
shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the
obligations of the Borrower therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender or the
Administrative Agent to maintain the Register or any such account, or any error therein, shall not in any manner
affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay (with applicable interest) the Loans made to such Borrower by such
Lender in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

(e)      The Borrower agrees that, upon the request to the Administrative Agent by any Lender, the Borrower will
execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note of the Borrower evidencing the Loans of such Lender,
substantially in the form of Exhibit A with appropriate insertions as to date and principal amount (a "Note").
                                                                                                       ----

2.5.     Prepayments and Termination or Reduction of Commitments.  (a)  The Borrower may, upon not less than
three Business Days' notice to the Administrative Agent, terminate or reduce the unutilized amount of the
Commitments.  Any reduction of the Commitments shall be in an amount equal to $10,000,000 or a whole multiple of
$1,000,000 in excess thereof and shall reduce permanently the Commitments then in effect.

(b)      The Borrower may at any time and from time to time prepay the Loans, in whole or in part, without
premium or penalty, upon at least three Business Days' irrevocable notice to the Administrative Agent.  Each such
notice shall specify the date and amount of prepayment and whether the prepayment is of Eurodollar Loans, ABR
Loans or a combination thereof, and, if of a combination thereof, the amount allocable to each.  Upon receipt of
any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender thereof.  If any such notice is given,
the amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein, together with any
amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.15 and (except in the case of ABR Loans) accrued interest to but excluding
such date on the amount prepaid.  Partial prepayments shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $5,000,000 or
a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof.

2.6.     Conversion and Continuation Options.  ABR Loans may, at any time, be converted into Eurodollar Loans and
Eurodollar Loans may, on the last day of any Interest Period applicable thereto, be converted into ABR Loans or
continued as Eurodollar Loans (the date of any such conversion, the "Conversion Date"), as follows:


Page 15

(a)      In order to continue outstanding Eurodollar Loans as Eurodollar Loans for another Interest Period, or to
         convert ABR Loans to Eurodollar Loans, the Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable
         notice thereof prior to 12:30 P.M. New York City time, three Business Days before the first day of the
         Interest Period to be applicable to such continued or converted Eurodollar Loans, which notice shall
         specify the length of the Interest Period requested by the Borrower to be applicable to such Loans.

(b)      No Loan may be converted into, or continued as, a Eurodollar Loan when any Event of Default has occurred
         and is continuing and the Administrative Agent has or the Required Lenders have determined in its or
         their sole discretion not to permit such a continuation.

(c)      If the Borrower fails to give a notice as described above in this Section 2.6 to continue an outstanding
         Eurodollar Loan or to convert such Loan to an ABR Loan, or if such continuation or conversion is not
         permitted pursuant to paragraph (b) above, such Loans shall be automatically converted to ABR Loans on
         the last day of the then expiring Interest Period applicable to such Loans.

(d)      The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender of each notice received by the Administrative
         Agent from the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.6.

2.7.     Minimum Amounts and Maximum Number of Tranches.  All borrowings, prepayments, conversions and
continuations of Loans hereunder and all selections of Interest Periods hereunder shall be in such amounts and be
made pursuant to such elections so that, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate principal amount of the Loans
comprising each Eurodollar Tranche shall be equal to $10,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess
thereof.  In no event shall there be more than five Eurodollar Tranches outstanding at any time.

2.8.     Interest Rates and Payment Dates.  (a)  Each Eurodollar Loan shall bear interest for each day during
each Interest Period with respect thereto at a rate per annum equal to the Eurodollar Rate determined for such
day plus the Applicable Margin therefor.

(b)      Each ABR Loan shall bear interest for each day from the applicable Borrowing Date at a rate per annum
equal to the ABR plus the Applicable Margin therefor.

(c)      If all or a portion of (i) the principal amount of any Loan or reimbursement obligation in respect of
any LC Disbursement, (ii) any interest payable thereon or (iii) any fee or other amount payable hereunder shall
not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall,
to the extent permitted by applicable law, bear interest at a rate per annum which is equal to the rate
applicable to ABR Loans pursuant to Section 2.8(b) plus 2% from the date of such non-payment to (but excluding)
the date on which such amount is paid in full (after as well as before judgment).

(d)      Interest shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date, provided that interest accruing
pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable from time to time on demand.


Page 16


2.9.     Computation of Interest and Fees.  (a)  Interest calculated on the basis of the Prime Rate shall be
calculated on the basis of a 365- (or 366-, as the case may be) day year for the actual days elapsed; and,
otherwise, interest and Facility Fees, Letter of Credit Participation Fees and Letter of Credit Fronting Fees
shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual days elapsed.  The Administrative Agent shall
as soon as practicable notify the Borrower and the Lenders of each determination of a Eurodollar Rate.

(b)      Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any provision of this
Agreement shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower and the Lenders in the absence of manifest error.  The
Administrative Agent shall deliver to the Borrower upon request a statement showing the quotations used by the
Administrative Agent in determining any interest rate pursuant to Section 2.8(a) or (b).

2.10.    Inability to Determine Interest Rate.  If prior to the first day of any Interest Period:

(a)      the Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon
the Borrower, absent manifest error) that the Eurodollar Rate can not be determined by any of the means set forth
in the definition of "Eurodollar Rate" and, by reason of circumstances affecting the eurodollar market,
quotations of interest rates for the relevant deposits are not being provided to JPMorgan Chase Bank in the
relevant amount or for the relevant maturities for purposes of determining the Eurodollar Rate for such Interest
Period, or

(b)      the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Required  Lenders that the Eurodollar Rate
determined or to be determined for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such
Lenders (as conclusively certified by such Lenders, absent manifest error) of making or maintaining their
affected Loans during such Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall give telecopy or telephonic notice
thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders as soon as practicable thereafter.  If such notice is given (x) any
Eurodollar Loans requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period shall be made as ABR Loans, (y)
any ABR Loans that were to have been converted on the first day of such Interest Period to Eurodollar Loans shall
be continued as ABR Loans and (z) any outstanding Eurodollar Loans shall be converted, on the first day of such
Interest Period, to ABR Loans.  Each such Lender shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent upon any change
in such determination of the adequacies and fairness of the Eurodollar Rate, and the Administrative Agent shall
promptly withdraw its notice to the Borrower following receipt of such notices from the Required Lenders.  Until
such withdrawal by the Administrative Agent, no further Eurodollar Loans shall be made or continued as such, nor
shall the Borrower have the right to convert ABR Loans to Eurodollar Loans.

2.11.    Pro Rata Treatment and Payments.  (a)  Each borrowing by the Borrower from the Lenders hereunder, each
payment by the Borrower of any Facility Fee or Letter of Credit Participation Fee hereunder, each payment
(including each prepayment) by the Borrower on account of principal of and interest on the Loans, and any
reduction of the Commitments of the Lenders shall be made pro rata according to the Percentages of the Lenders,
in each case except to the extent another provision of this Agreement specifies a different treatment.  All

Page 17


payments (including prepayments) to be made by the Borrower hereunder, whether on account of principal, interest,
fees or otherwise, shall be made without set off or counterclaim and shall be made prior to 4:00 P.M., New York
City time, on the due date thereof to the Administrative Agent (except payments to be made directly to the
Issuing Lender as expressly provided herein), for the account of the Lenders, at the Administrative Agent's
office specified in Section 9.2, in Dollars and in immediately available funds.  The Administrative Agent shall
distribute such payments to the Lenders promptly upon receipt in like funds as received.  If any payment
hereunder becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be extended to the next
succeeding Business Day, and, with respect to payments of principal, interest thereon shall be payable at the
then applicable rate during such extension.

(b)      Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by any Lender prior to a borrowing
that such Lender will not make the amount that would constitute its share of such borrowing available to the
Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender is making such amount available to the
Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the
Borrower a corresponding amount.  If such amount is not made available to the Administrative Agent by the
required time on the Borrowing Date therefor, such Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent, on demand, such
amount with interest thereon at a rate equal to the daily average Federal Funds Effective Rate for the period
until such Lender makes such amount immediately available to the Administrative Agent.  A certificate of the
Administrative Agent submitted to any Lender with respect to any amounts owing under this Section shall be
conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  If such Lender's pro rata share of such borrowing is not made
available to the Administrative Agent by such Lender within three Business Days of such Borrowing Date, the
Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to repayment of such amount with interest thereon at the rate per
annum otherwise applicable to such Loans hereunder, on demand, from the Borrower and, upon such payment, no
further interest shall be payable with respect to such amount.  The payment of interest by a Lender to the
Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.11(b) shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any right the
Borrower may have against such Lender for such Lender's failure to make Loans to the Borrower as required
hereunder.

2.12.    Illegality.  Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if the adoption of or any change in any
Requirement of Law or in the interpretation or application thereof shall make it unlawful for any Lender to make
or maintain Eurodollar Loans as contemplated by this Agreement (a) such Lender shall promptly give notice thereof
to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, (b) the commitment of such Lender hereunder to make Eurodollar
Loans, continue Eurodollar Loans as such and convert ABR Loans to Eurodollar Loans shall forthwith be cancelled
and (c) such Lender's outstanding Eurodollar Loans, if any, shall be converted automatically to ABR Loans on the
respective last days of the then current Interest Periods with respect to such Loans or within such earlier
period as required by law.

2.13.    Additional Costs.  (a)  If, as a result of any Regulatory Change:

(i)      any Lender or the Issuing Lender shall be subject to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to
         amounts payable to it under this Agreement or any Eurodollar Loan made by it, or the basis of taxation
         of payments to such Lender or the Issuing Lender in respect thereof is changed (except, in each case,
         for Non-Excluded Taxes covered by Section 2.14, net income taxes and franchise taxes, and changes in the
         rate of tax on the overall net income of such Lender); or
Page 18


(ii)     any reserve, special deposit, or capital adequacy, or similar requirements relating to any extensions of
         credit or other assets of, or any deposits with or other liabilities of, any Lender or the Issuing
         Lender are imposed, modified, or deemed applicable; or

(iii)    any other condition affecting this Agreement, any Eurodollar Loans or any Letter of Credit or
         participation therein is imposed on any Lender or the Issuing Lender after the date hereof; and

any Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, determines that, by reason thereof, the cost to such Lender
of making or maintaining its Commitment or any of its Eurodollar Loans to the Borrower, or the cost (including
reduced rate of return) to such Lender or the Issuing Lender of participating in, issuing or maintaining any
Letter of Credit, as the case may be, is increased or any amount receivable by such Lender or the Issuing Lender
hereunder in respect of any of such Loans or Letters of Credit is reduced, in each case by an amount reasonably
deemed by such Lender or the Issuing Lender to be material (such increases in cost and reductions in amounts
receivable being herein called "Additional Costs"), then the Borrower shall pay to such Lender or the Issuing
Lender, as the case may be, upon its request the additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or
the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, for such Additional Costs within 15 Business Days after written notice of
such Additional Costs is received by the Borrower; provided, however, that if all or any such Additional Costs
would not have been payable or incurred but for such Lender's voluntary decision to designate a new Lending
Office, the Borrower shall have no obligation under this Section 2.13 to compensate such Lender for such amount
relating to such Lender's decision; provided, further, that the Borrower shall not be required to make any
payments to such Lender or the Issuing Lender for Additional Costs resulting from capital adequacy requirements
incurred more than 60 days prior to the date that such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, notifies
the Borrower of such Lender's intention to claim compensation therefor.  Each Lender will notify the Borrower and
the Administrative Agent of any Regulatory Change occurring after the date of this Agreement which will entitle
such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, to compensation pursuant to this Section 2.13(a) as
promptly as practicable after it obtains knowledge thereof and determines to request such compensation.  If such
Lender or the Issuing Lender requests compensation under this Section 2.13(a) in respect of any Regulatory
Change, the Borrower may, by notice to such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as applicable, require that such Lender
or the Issuing Lender forward to the Borrower a statement setting forth the basis for requesting such
compensation and the method for determining the amount thereof.

(b)      Without limiting the effect of the provisions of Section 2.13(a) (but without duplication thereof), the
Borrower will pay to any Lender, within 15 Business Days of receipt by the Borrower of notice from such Lender,
for each day such Lender is required to maintain reserves against "Eurocurrency liabilities" under Regulation D
of the Board as in effect on the date of this Agreement, an additional amount determined by such Lender equal to
the product of the following:


Page 19


(i)      the principal amount of the Eurodollar Loan;

(ii)     the remainder of (x) a fraction the numerator of which is the Eurodollar Rate for such Eurodollar Loan
         and the denominator of which is one minus the rate at which such reserve requirements are imposed on
         such Lender on such day minus (y) such numerator; and

(iii)    1/360.

Such Lender shall request payment under this Section 2.13(b) by giving notice to the Borrower as of the last day
of each Interest Period for each Eurodollar Loan (and, if such Interest Period exceeds three months' duration,
also as of three months, or a whole multiple thereof, after the first day of such Interest Period).  Such notice
shall specify the basis for requesting such compensation and the method for determining the amount thereof.  Such
Lender shall provide any evidence of such requirement to maintain reserves as the Borrower may reasonably request.

(c)      Determinations by any Lender or the Issuing Lender for purposes of this Section 2.13 of the effect of
any Regulatory Change shall be conclusive, provided that such determinations are made absent manifest error.

2.14.    Taxes.  (a)  All payments made by the Borrower under this Agreement and any Notes shall be made free and
clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any present or future income, stamp or other
taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings, now or hereafter imposed, levied,
collected, withheld or assessed by any Governmental Authority, excluding net income taxes and franchise taxes
(imposed in lieu of net income taxes) imposed on the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or any Lender as a
result of a present or former connection between the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or such Lender and
the jurisdiction of the Governmental Authority imposing such tax or any political subdivision or taxing authority
thereof or therein (other than any such connection arising solely from the Administrative Agent, the Issuing
Lender or such Lender having executed, delivered or performed its obligations or received a payment under, or
enforced, this Agreement or any other Loan Document), unless the Borrower is compelled by law to make such
deduction or withholding.  If any such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees deductions or
withholdings ("Non-Excluded Taxes") or any Other Taxes are required to be withheld from any amounts payable to
the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or any Lender hereunder or under any Note, the amounts so payable to
the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or such Lender shall be increased to the extent necessary to yield
to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or such Lender (after payment of all Non-Excluded Taxes and Other
Taxes) interest or any such other amounts payable hereunder at the rates or in the amounts they would have
received had no such obligation been imposed on the Borrower; provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be
required to increase any such amounts payable to any Lender with respect to any Non-Excluded Taxes that are
attributable to such Lender's designation of a different Lending Office (provided that such Non-Excluded Taxes
are imposed at the time of the first payment to such Lender under this Agreement following such designation and
excluding any designation required by any Requirement of Law or occurring pursuant to Section 2.16) or failure to
comply with the requirements of paragraph (d) of this Section 2.14.


Page 20


(b)      In addition, the Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes (other than Other Taxes that are being or promptly
will be contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which the Borrower has set aside on its books
adequate reserves in accordance with GAAP, provided that the Borrower shall be permitted not to pay such Other
Taxes being so contested only so long as such nonpayment could not reasonably be expected to have any adverse
effect on the rights or remedies of the Lenders hereunder or under any other Loan Document) to the relevant
Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(c)      Whenever any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes (other than Other Taxes that are being or promptly will
be contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which the Borrower has set aside on its books
adequate reserves in accordance with GAAP, provided that the Borrower shall be permitted not to pay such Other
Taxes being so contested only so long as such nonpayment could not reasonably be expected to have any adverse
effect on the rights or remedies of the Lenders hereunder or under any other Loan Document) are payable by the
Borrower, as promptly as possible thereafter the Borrower shall send to the Administrative Agent for the account
of the Administrative Agent or the relevant Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, certificates or other
valid vouchers or receipts received by the Borrower showing payment thereof.  If the Borrower fails to pay any
such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the
Administrative Agent the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower shall indemnify
the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and the Lenders for any incremental taxes, interest or penalties
that may become payable by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender or any Lender as a result of any such
failure.

(d)      Each Lender (or Transferee) that is not a "United States person" as defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of
the Code (a "Non-U.S. Lender") shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of a
Participant, to the Lender from which the related participation shall have been purchased) two copies of either
U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN (certifying as to entitlement to treaty benefits) or Form W-8ECI
(claiming exemption from withholding because the income is effectively connected with a U.S. trade or business),
or, in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax under Section 871(h) or
881(c) of the Code with respect to payments of "portfolio interest", a statement substantially in the form of
Exhibit B and a Form W-8BEN (certifying as to beneficial ownership), or any subsequent versions thereof or
successors thereto properly completed and duly executed by such Non-U.S. Lender claiming complete exemption from
U.S. federal withholding tax on all payments by the Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
Such forms shall be delivered by each Non-U.S. Lender on or before the date it becomes a party to this Agreement
(or, in the case of any Participant, on or before the date such Participant purchases the related
participation).  In addition, each Non-U.S. Lender shall deliver such forms promptly upon the obsolescence or
invalidity of any form previously delivered by such Non-U.S. Lender, or upon the reasonable request by the
Borrower or the Administrative Agent.  Each Non-U.S. Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower at any time it
determines that it is no longer in a position to provide any previously delivered certificate to the Borrower (or
any other form of certification adopted by the U.S. taxing authorities for such purpose).  Each Non-U.S. Lender
agrees to (i) promptly notify the Administrative Agent and Borrower if any fact set forth in any such certificate
ceases to be true and correct and (ii) take such steps and may be reasonably necessary to avoid any applicable
Requirements of Law that Borrower make any deduction or withholding for taxes from amounts payable to the
Non-U.S. Lender under this Agreement.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this paragraph, a Non-U.S. Lender
shall not be required to deliver any form pursuant to this paragraph after the date it becomes a party to this

Page 21


Agreement (or, in the case of any Participant, after the date such Participant purchases the related
participation) that such Non-U.S. Lender is not legally able to deliver.

2.15.    Indemnity.  The Borrower agrees to indemnify each Lender and to hold each Lender harmless from any loss
or expense which such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) default by the Borrower in making a
borrowing of Eurodollar Loans or in the conversion into or continuation of Eurodollar Loans, after the Borrower
has given a notice requesting or accepting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (b)
default by the Borrower in making any prepayment of Eurodollar Loans after the Borrower has given a notice
thereof in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, or (c) the making of a prepayment of Eurodollar
Loans on a day which is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto.  Such indemnification may
include an amount equal to the excess, if applicable, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on
the amount so prepaid, or not so borrowed, converted or continued, for the period from the date of such
prepayment or of such failure to borrow, convert or continue to but excluding the last day of the relevant
Interest Period (or proposed Interest Period) at the applicable rate of interest for such Loans provided for
herein (excluding, however, the Applicable Margin) over (ii) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by
such Lender) which would have accrued to such Lender on such amount by placing such amount on deposit for a
comparable period with leading banks in the interbank eurodollar market.

2.16.    Change of Lending Office.  Each Lender agrees that if it makes any demand for payment under Sections
2.13 or 2.14(a), or if any adoption or change of the type described in Section 2.12 shall occur with respect to
it, it will use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions and
so long as such efforts would not be disadvantageous to it, as determined in its sole discretion) to designate a
different Lending Office if the making of such a designation would reduce or obviate the need for the Borrower to
make payments under Sections 2.13 or 2.14(a), or would eliminate or reduce the effect of any adoption or change
described in Section 2.12.

2.17.    Replacement of Lenders under Certain Circumstances.  The Borrower shall be permitted to replace any
Lender (a) which requests reimbursement for amounts owing pursuant to Sections 2.13 or 2.14 (for itself or its
Participant) or for which amounts are otherwise payable by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.14, (b) which is
affected in the manner described in Section 2.12 and as a result thereof any of the actions described in said
Section is required to be taken or (c) which defaults in its obligation to make Loans hereunder, with a
replacement bank or other financial institution; provided that (i) such replacement does not conflict with any
Requirement of Law, (ii) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such
replacement, (iii) the Borrower shall repay (or the replacement bank or institution shall purchase, at par),
without duplication, all Loans, participations in LC Disbursements and other amounts owing to such replaced
Lender on or prior to the date of replacement, (iv) the Borrower shall be liable to such replaced Lender under
Section 2.15 if any outstanding Eurodollar Loan owing to such replaced Lender shall be prepaid (or purchased)

Page 22


other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto, (v) the replacement bank or institution, if
not already a Lender, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (vi) the replaced Lender
shall be obligated to make such replacement in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.6 (c) and (e)
(provided that the Borrower or the replacement bank or institution shall be obligated to pay the registration and
processing fee referred to therein), (vii) until such time as such replacement shall be consummated, the Borrower
shall pay all additional amounts (if any) required pursuant to Sections 2.13 or 2.14, as the case may be, and
(viii) any such replacement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights which the Borrower, the
Administrative Agent or any other Lender shall have against the replaced Lender.

                                        SECTION 3. LETTERS OF CREDIT

3.1.     General.  Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Borrower may request the issuance of
Letters of Credit for its own account, in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the
Issuing Lender and in all respects consistent with the terms of this Agreement, at any time and from time to time
during the period from and including the Closing Date to the date which is 15 Business Days prior to the
Termination Date.  In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the
terms and conditions of any form of letter of credit application or other agreement submitted by the Borrower to,
or entered into by the Borrower with, the Issuing Lender relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and
conditions of this Agreement shall control.

3.2.     Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Renewal, Extension; Certain Conditions.  To request the issuance of a
Letter of Credit (or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit), the 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 the Administrative Agent (three Business Days in
advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension) a notice requesting the issuance of a
Letter of Credit, or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, renewed or extended, and specifying the date
of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (which shall be a Business Day), the date on which such Letter of
Credit is to expire (which shall comply with Section 3.3), the amount of such Letter of Credit, the name and
address of the beneficiary thereof and such other information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, renew or
extend such Letter of Credit.  If requested by the Issuing Lender, the Borrower also shall submit a letter of
credit application on the Issuing Lender's standard form (it being understood that this Agreement shall govern in
the event of any inconsistency between any such application and this Agreement) in connection with any request
for the issuance of a Letter of Credit.  A Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, renewed or extended only if
(and upon issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of each Letter of Credit the Borrower shall be deemed to
represent and warrant that), after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (i) the LC
Exposure shall not exceed $250,000,000 and (ii) the sum of the Total Exposures shall not exceed the Total
Commitments.

3.3.     Expiration Date.  No Letter of Credit shall expire later than the close of business on the earlier of
(i) the date one year after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or, in the case of any renewal or
extension thereof, one year after such renewal or extension) and (ii) the date that is one year following the
Termination Date; provided that with respect to any Letter of Credit having an expiration date beyond the

Page 23


Termination Date, the Borrower shall cash collateralize such Letter of Credit on the Termination Date in an
amount equal to the amount of such Letter of Credit and otherwise on terms satisfactory to the Administrative
Agent or the Borrower shall provide to the Issuing Lender a standby letter of credit in an amount equal to the
amount of such Letter of Credit and otherwise in form and substance satisfactory to the Issuing Lender.

3.4.     Participations.  By the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension 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, the Issuing Lender hereby grants to each Lender, and each Lender hereby acquires from the
Issuing Lender, a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Lender's Percentage of the aggregate
amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit.  In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing,
each Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of
the Issuing Lender, such Lender's Percentage of each LC Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender and not
reimbursed by the Borrower on the date due as provided in Section 3.5, or of any reimbursement payment required
to be refunded to the Borrower for any reason.  Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to
acquire participations pursuant to this paragraph in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute and unconditional
and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment,
defense or other right that such Lender may have against the Issuing Lender, the Borrower or any other Person for
any reason whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or an Event of Default or the failure to
satisfy any of the other conditions specified in Section 5, (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial
or otherwise) of the Borrower, the Issuing Lender, any Lender or any other Person, (iv) any breach of this
Agreement or any other Loan Document by the Borrower or any other Lender or (v) any other circumstance, happening
or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.

3.5.     Reimbursement.  If the Issuing Lender shall make any LC Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit,
the Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such
LC Disbursement not later than 4:00 P.M., New York City time, on the date that such LC Disbursement is made, if
the Borrower shall have received notice of such LC Disbursement prior to 12:00 P.M., New York City time, on such
date, or, if such notice has not been received by the Borrower prior to such time on such date, then not later
than 4:00 P.M., New York City time, on the Business Day immediately following the day that the Borrower receives
such notice; provided that (a) if the unreimbursed amount of such LC Disbursement is $5,000,000 or more or (b) if
the unreimbursed amount of all LC Disbursements made by the Issuing Lender on any given Business Day are, in the
aggregate, $5,000,000 or more, the Borrower may reimburse such unreimbursed amount or, if the Borrower does not
do so, the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion, finance such unreimbursed amount on behalf of the Lenders
with an ABR Loan in an equivalent amount (and shall notify the Lenders of the making of such ABR Loan).  If the
unreimbursed amount of such LC Disbursement(s) is less than $5,000,000 and the Borrower fails to reimburse such
LC Disbursement(s) when due, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the unreimbursed amount of each
applicable LC Disbursement and such Lender's Percentage thereof.  Promptly following receipt of such notice (or
notice that the Administrative Agent has funded an ABR Loan in accordance with the immediately preceding

Page 24

sentence), each Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent its Percentage of the unreimbursed amount of each
such LC Disbursement (it being understood that each Lender hereby agrees to pay such amount notwithstanding that
any condition to the making of a Loan hereunder may not be satisfied), in the same manner as provided in Section
2.2 with respect to Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.11(b) shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment
obligations of the Lenders to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 3.5), and the Administrative
Agent shall promptly pay to the Issuing Lender the amounts so received by it from the Lenders.  Any payment made
by a Lender pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the Issuing Lender for any LC Disbursement (other than the
funding of ABR Loans as contemplated above) shall be treated as an ABR Loan that is immediately due and payable
in the principal amount of such LC Disbursement.  Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any
payment from the Borrower pursuant to this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to
the Issuing Lender or, to the extent that Lenders have made payments pursuant to this Section to reimburse the
Issuing Lender, then to such Lenders and the Issuing Lender as their interests may appear.

3.6.     Obligations Absolute.  The Borrower's obligation to reimburse LC Disbursements as provided in Section
3.5 shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the
terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of (i) any lack of validity
or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or
other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or
any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by the Issuing Lender under a
Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such
Letter of Credit, or (iv) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the
foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or
provide a right of setoff against, the Borrower's obligations hereunder.  Neither the Administrative Agent, the
Lenders nor the Issuing Lender, nor any of their directors, officers, employees, affiliates and agents, shall
have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of
Credit or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances
referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or
delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any
document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any
consequence arising from causes beyond the control of the Issuing Lender; provided that the foregoing shall not
be construed to excuse the Issuing Lender from liability to the Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as
opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Borrower to the extent
permitted by applicable law) suffered by the Borrower that are caused by the Issuing Lender's gross negligence or
willful misconduct in (i) making payment under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other
document that on its face does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, (ii) failing to make payment
under any Letter of Credit against presentation of any draft or other document that is in strict compliance with
the terms of such Letter of Credit or (iii) retaining drafts or other documents presented under a Letter of
Credit.  In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that,
with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of
a Letter of Credit, the Issuing Lender may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such
documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the

Page 25

contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance
with the terms of such Letter of Credit.

3.7.     Disbursement Procedures.  The Issuing Lender shall, promptly following its receipt thereof, examine all
documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit.  The Issuing Lender shall
promptly notify the Administrative Agent and the Borrower by telephone (confirmed by telecopy) of such demand for
payment and whether the Issuing Lender has made or will make an LC Disbursement thereunder; provided that any
failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve the Borrower of its obligation to reimburse the
Issuing Lender and the Lenders with respect to any such LC Disbursement.

3.8.     Interim Interest.  If the Issuing Lender shall make any LC Disbursement, then, unless the Borrower shall
reimburse such LC Disbursement in full on the date such LC Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall
bear interest, for each day from and including the date such LC Disbursement is made to but excluding the date
that the Borrower reimburses such LC Disbursement by payment or by an ABR Loan, at the rate per annum then
applicable to ABR Loans; provided that, if the Borrower fails to reimburse such LC Disbursement within one
Business Day of the date when due pursuant to Section 3.5, then Section 2.8(c) shall apply.  Interest accrued
pursuant to this paragraph shall be for the account of the Issuing Lender, except that interest accrued on and
after the date of payment by any Lender pursuant to Section 3.5 to reimburse the Issuing Lender shall be for the
account of such Lender to the extent of such payment.

3.9.     Replacement of the Issuing Lender.  The Issuing Lender may be replaced at any time (i) by written
agreement among the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the replaced Issuing Lender and the successor Issuing
Lender or (ii) at the Borrower's election by written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender to
be replaced but only if the credit rating of the Lender then serving as Issuing Lender is not, at the time of
such election, reasonably acceptable to the Borrower.  The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any
such replacement of the Issuing Lender.  At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the Borrower
shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Issuing Lender pursuant to Section 2.3(c).
From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (i) the successor Issuing Lender shall have all the
rights and obligations of the Issuing Lender under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued
thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term "Issuing Lender" shall be deemed to refer to such successor or
to any previous Issuing Lender, or to such successor and all previous Issuing Lenders, as the context shall
require.  After the replacement of an Issuing Lender hereunder, the replaced Issuing Lender shall remain a party
hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Lender under this Agreement with
respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such replacement, but shall not be required to issue
additional Letters of Credit.

                                SECTION 4. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES


Page 26

                  To induce the Administrative Agent and the Lenders to enter into this Agreement and to make the
Loans and issue or participate in the Letters of Credit, as the case may be, the Borrower hereby represents and
warrants to the Administrative Agent and each Lender that:

4.1.     Financial Condition.  (i)  The consolidated balance sheet of the Borrower and its consolidated
Subsidiaries as at December 31, 2003 and the related consolidated statements of income and of cash flows for the
fiscal year ended on such date, reported on by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, and (ii) the consolidated balance
sheet of the Borrower and its consolidated Subsidiaries as at September 30, 2004 and the related consolidated
statements of income and of cash flows for the nine-month period ended on such date, copies of which have been
included, respectively, in the Borrower's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the
fiscal year and nine-month period, respectively, ended as of such dates, as filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission, present fairly in all material respects the consolidated financial condition of the Borrower
and its consolidated Subsidiaries as at such dates, and the consolidated results of their operations and their
consolidated cash flows for the fiscal year and nine-month period, respectively, then ended.  Such financial
statements, including the related schedules and notes thereto, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP applied
consistently throughout the period involved (subject, in the case of unaudited interim financial statements, to
normal year-end adjustments).

4.2.     No Change.  From September 30, 2004, there has been no development or event which has had a Material
Adverse Effect.

4.3.     Corporate Existence.  The Borrower (a) is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good
standing under the laws of the State of California and has the corporate power and authority, and the legal
right, to own and operate its property, to lease the property it operates as lessee and to conduct the business
in which it is currently engaged and (b) is in compliance with all Requirements of Law except to the extent that
the failure to comply therewith would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse
Effect.

4.4.     Corporate Power; No Legal Bar.  The execution, delivery, and performance by the Borrower of this
Agreement and any Note are within its corporate powers, have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate
action, and do not violate any provision of law or any agreement, indenture, note, or other instrument binding
upon or affecting it or its charter or by-laws or give cause for acceleration of any of its Indebtedness, except
to the extent that such violation or acceleration would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a
Material Adverse Effect.

4.5.     Authorization; Enforceability.  All authorizations, approvals, and other actions by, and notices to and
filings with all Governmental Authorities required for the due execution, delivery and performance of this
Agreement and any Note have been obtained or made and are in full force and effect, except to the extent that the
failure to obtain or make, or to have in full force and effect, such authorizations, approvals, other actions,
notices and filings would not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  Each
of this Agreement and each Note executed in connection herewith is a legally valid and binding obligation of the
Borrower enforceable in accordance with its terms except as enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency,
reorganization, moratorium or other laws or equitable principles relating to or limiting creditors' rights
generally.


Page 27


4.6.     ERISA.  No "prohibited transaction" (as defined in Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code) or
"accumulated funding deficiency" (as defined in Section 302 of ERISA) or "reportable event" (herein defined as any
of the events set forth in Section 4043(b) of ERISA or the regulations thereunder) has occurred in the last five
years with respect to any Plan which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect with respect
to the consolidated financial condition of the Borrower and its consolidated Subsidiaries.  The present value of
all benefits vested under all Plans maintained by the Borrower or any Commonly Controlled Entity (based on those
assumptions used to fund the Plans) did not, as of the last annual valuation date, exceed the value of the assets
of the Plan allocable to such vested benefits.

4.7.     No Material Litigation.  There are no legal or arbitral proceedings or any proceedings by or before any
governmental or regulatory authority or agency, now pending or, to the knowledge of the Borrower, threatened
against the Borrower or any Significant Subsidiary of the Borrower which have not been disclosed in public
filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (a) that would reasonably be expected to have a Material
Adverse Effect or (b) with respect to any of the Loan Documents.

4.8.     Taxes.  All United States Federal income tax returns of the Borrower and its Significant Subsidiaries
that file consolidated income tax returns with the Borrower have been examined and closed through the fiscal year
of the Borrower ended December 31, 1990.  The Borrower and such Significant Subsidiaries have filed all United
States Federal income tax returns and all other material tax returns which are required to be filed by them and
have paid all taxes due pursuant to such returns or pursuant to any assessment received by the Borrower or any
such Significant Subsidiary, except (a) any taxes that are being or promptly will be contested in good faith by
appropriate proceedings and for which the Borrower or such Significant Subsidiary, as applicable, has set aside
on its books adequate reserves in accordance with GAAP or (b) any taxes that are immaterial in amount.  The
charges, accruals and reserves on the books of the Borrower and such Significant Subsidiaries in respect of any
taxes and other governmental charges are, in the opinion of the Borrower, adequate.

4.9.     Purpose of Loans.  The proceeds of the Loans shall be used by the Borrower for general corporate and
working capital purposes (including to refinance and repay its commercial paper issuances).  Letters of Credit
shall be issued for general corporate purposes of the Borrower.  No part of the proceeds of any Loans, and no
other extensions of credit hereunder, will be used for "buying" or "carrying" any "margin stock" within the
respective meanings of each of the quoted terms under Regulation U as now and from time to time hereafter in
effect.

4.10.    No Default.  Neither the Borrower nor any of its Significant Subsidiaries is in default under or with
respect to any of its Contractual Obligations in any respect that would reasonably be expected to have a Material
Adverse Effect and no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.  The execution, delivery and
performance of the Loan Documents do not contravene any provision of the Indenture.


Page 28


4.11.    Environmental Matters.  The Borrower and its Significant Subsidiaries do not have liabilities under
Environmental Laws or relating to Materials of Environmental Concern that have not been disclosed in public
filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission as of the Closing Date that would reasonably be expected to
have a Material Adverse Effect.

4.12.    Projections.  The projections contained in any document, certificate or statement furnished as of the
date hereof by or on behalf of the Borrower to the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, or any of them, pursuant
to this Agreement or any other Loan Document are based, as of the date such document, certificate or statement
was so furnished, upon good faith estimates and assumptions believed by management of the Borrower to be
reasonable at the time made, it being recognized by the Lenders that such financial information as it relates to
future events is not to be viewed as fact and that actual results during the period or periods covered by such
financial information may differ from the projected results set forth therein by a material amount.

4.13.    Public Utility Holding Company Act.  The Borrower is a "holding company" under the Public Utility
Holding Company Act of 1935, as amended (the "PUHCA"), and is exempt from all provisions of the PUHCA except for
Section 9(a)(2) thereof.

                                        SECTION 5. CONDITIONS PRECEDENT

         determining compliance by the Borrower with the provisions of Section 6.8 of this Agreement as of the

(d)      The Borrower or SCE shall (a) apply for or consent to the appointment of, or the taking of possession

(e)      A case or other proceeding shall be commenced (including commencement of such case or proceeding by way
         of service of process on the Borrower or SCE), in any court of competent jurisdiction, seeking (a) the
         liquidation, reorganization, dissolution or winding-up, or the composition or readjustment of debts of
         the Borrower or SCE, (b) the appointment of a trustee, receiver, custodian, liquidator, or the like of
         the Borrower or any of its Significant Subsidiaries or of all or any substantial part of the assets of
         the Borrower or SCE or (c) similar relief in respect of the Borrower or SCE under any law relating to

Page 34

         property of the Borrower or SCE and such case, proceeding, warrant, or process shall continue
         undismissed or unstayed and in effect for a period of 45 days, or an order, judgment, or decree

(g)      The Borrower or SCE shall (i) default in any payment of principal or interest on any Indebtedness in an
         aggregate amount in excess of $75,000,000 or in the payment of any guarantee thereof beyond the period
         of grace, if any, provided in the instrument or agreement under which such indebtedness or guarantee
         thereof was created; or (ii) default beyond any applicable grace period in the observance or performance
         of any other agreement or condition relating to any such Indebtedness or guarantee thereof or contained
         in any instrument or agreement evidencing, securing or relating thereto, or any other event shall occur
         or condition exist, the effect of which default or other event or condition is to cause, or to permit
         the holder or holders of such Indebtedness to cause, with the giving of notice if required, such
         Indebtedness to become due prior to its stated maturity; provided, however, that if such default shall
         be cured by the Borrower or SCE or waived by the holders of such Indebtedness and any acceleration of
         maturity having resulted from such default shall be rescinded or annulled, in each case in accordance
         with the terms of such agreement or instrument, without any modification of the terms of such
         Indebtedness requiring the Borrower or SCE to furnish additional or other security therefor reducing the
         average life to maturity thereof or increasing the principal amount thereof, or any agreement by the
         Borrower or SCE to furnish additional or other security therefor or to issue in lieu thereof
         Indebtedness secured by additional or other collateral or with a shorter average life to maturity or in
         a greater principal amount, then any default hereunder by reason thereof shall be deemed likewise to
         have been thereupon cured or waived unless payment of the Loans hereunder has been accelerated prior to
         such cure or waiver;

(h)      There shall have been entered by a court of competent jurisdiction within the United States and shall
         not have been vacated, discharged or stayed within sixty (60) days from the entry thereof (or such
         longer period as may be provided by law) one or more final judgments or final decrees for payment of
         money against the Borrower or SCE involving in the aggregate a liability (to the extent not paid or
         covered by insurance) in excess of $75,000,000; or

(i)      A Change of Control shall occur;



Page 35


then, and in any such event, (A) if such event is an Event of Default specified in paragraph (d) or (e) of this
Section with respect to the Borrower, automatically the Commitments shall immediately terminate and the Loans
hereunder (with accrued interest thereon) and all other amounts owing under this Agreement and the other Loan
Documents (including all obligations in respect of LC Exposure, whether or not such obligations are contingent or
unmatured and whether or not the beneficiaries of the then outstanding Letters of Credit shall have presented the
documents required thereunder) shall immediately become due and payable, and (B) if such event is any other Event
of Default, either or both of the following actions may be taken:   (i) with the consent of the Required Lenders,
the Administrative Agent may, or upon the request of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent shall, by
notice to the Borrower declare the Commitments to be terminated forthwith, whereupon the Commitments shall
immediately terminate; and (ii) with the consent of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent may, or upon
the request of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent shall, by notice to the Borrower, declare the Loans
hereunder (with accrued interest thereon) and all other amounts owing under this Agreement and the other Loan
Documents (including all obligations in respect of LC Exposure, whether or not such obligations are contingent or
unmatured and whether or not the beneficiaries of the then outstanding Letters of Credit shall have presented the
documents required thereunder) to be due and payable forthwith, whereupon the same shall immediately become due
and payable.  With respect to all Letters of Credit with respect to which presentment for honor for the full
amount thereof shall not have occurred at the time of an acceleration pursuant to this paragraph, the Borrower
shall at such time deposit in a cash collateral account opened by the Administrative Agent an amount equal to the
aggregate then undrawn and unexpired amount of such Letters of Credit.  Amounts held in such cash collateral
account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to the payment of drafts drawn under such Letters of Credit,
and the unused portion thereof after all such Letters of Credit shall have expired or been fully drawn upon, if
any, shall be applied to repay other obligations of the Borrower hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.
After all such Letters of Credit shall have expired or been fully drawn upon, all obligations in respect of the
LC Exposure shall have been satisfied and all other obligations of the Borrower hereunder and under the other
Loan Documents shall have been paid in full, the balance, if any, in such cash collateral account shall be
returned to the Borrower (or such other Person as may be lawfully entitled thereto).  Except as expressly
provided above in this Section, presentment, demand, protest and all other notices of any kind are hereby
expressly waived.

                                        SECTION 8. THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT

8.1.     Appointment.  Each Lender hereby designates and appoints the Administrative Agent as the agent of such
Lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and each such Lender authorizes the Administrative
Agent, in such capacity, to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and the other
Loan Documents; and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to the
Administrative Agent by the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, together with such other powers
as are reasonably incidental thereto.   Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary elsewhere in this
Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set
forth herein, or 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 the Administrative Agent.

Page 36


8.2.     Delegation of Duties.  The Administrative Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement and
the other Loan Documents by or through agents or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel
concerning all matters pertaining to such duties.  The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible to the
Lenders for the negligence or misconduct of any agents or attorneys in-fact selected by it with reasonable care.

8.3.     Exculpatory Provisions.  Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees,
agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates shall be (i) liable to any Lender for any action lawfully taken or
omitted to be taken by it or such Person under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document
(except for its or such Person's own gross negligence or willful misconduct) or (ii) responsible in any manner to
any of the Lenders for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by the Borrower or any
officer thereof contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document or in any certificate, report, statement
or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by the Administrative Agent under or in connection
with, this Agreement or any other Loan Document or for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness,
enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or for any failure of the Borrower to
perform its obligations hereunder or thereunder.  The Administrative Agent shall not 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 properties, books or records of
the Borrower.

8.4.     Reliance by Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be
fully protected in relying, upon any Note, writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter,
telecopy, telex or teletype message, statement, order 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, without limitation, counsel to the Borrower), independent accountants and
other experts selected by the Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent may deem and treat the payee of any
Note as the owner thereof for all purposes unless a written notice of assignment, negotiation or transfer thereof
shall have been filed with the Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent shall be fully justified in
failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement or any other Loan Document unless it shall first
receive such advice or concurrence of the Required Lenders as it deems appropriate or it shall first be
indemnified to its satisfaction by the Lenders against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by
it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action.  The Administrative Agent shall in all cases be
fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents in
accordance with a request of the Required Lenders, and such request and any action taken or failure to act
pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all the Lenders and all future holders of the Loans.

8.5.     Notice of Default.  The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the
occurrence of any Default or Event of Default hereunder unless the Administrative Agent has received notice from
a Lender or the Borrower referring to this Agreement, describing such Default or Event of Default and stating

Page 37


that such notice is a "notice of default".  In the event that the Administrative Agent receives such a notice,
the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Lenders.  The Administrative Agent shall take such
action with respect to such Default or Event of Default as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Lenders;
provided that unless and until the Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, the Administrative
Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to
such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Lenders.

8.6.     Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders.  Each Lender expressly acknowledges that neither
the Administrative Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates
has made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by the Administrative Agent hereafter taken,
including any review of the affairs of the Borrower, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty
by the Administrative Agent to any Lender.  Each Lender represents to the Administrative Agent that it has,
independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents
and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business,
operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Borrower and made its own
decision to make its Loans hereunder and enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender also represents that it will,
independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent 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 analysis, appraisals
and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and to make such
investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, operations, property, financial and
other condition and creditworthiness of the Borrower.  Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly
required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall not
have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the
business, operations, property, condition (financial or otherwise), prospects or creditworthiness of the Borrower
which may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its officers, directors, employees,
agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates.

8.7.     Indemnification.  The Lenders agree to indemnify each Agent in its capacity as the Administrative Agent
or the Syndication Agent or a Documentation Agent, as the case may be (to the extent not reimbursed by the
Borrower and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), ratably according to their respective
Percentages in effect on the date on which indemnification is sought under this Section (or, if indemnification
is sought after the date upon which the Commitments shall have terminated, the Letters of Credit shall have
terminated or expired and the Loans shall have been paid in full, ratably in accordance with such Percentages
immediately prior to such date), from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages,
penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind whatsoever that may at any
time (whether before or after the payment of the Loans or the termination or expiration of the Letters of Credit)
be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Agent in any way relating to or arising out of, the

Page 38


Commitments, this Agreement, any of the other Loan Documents or any documents contemplated by or referred to
herein or therein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by such Agent
under or in connection with any of the foregoing; provided that no Lender shall be liable for the payment of any
portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses
or disbursements that are found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to
have resulted from such Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct.  The agreements in this Section shall
survive the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

8.8.     Administrative Agent in Its Individual Capacity.  The Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may make
loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower as though the
Administrative Agent were not the Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.  With
respect to the Loans made by it, the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents as any Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the
Administrative Agent, and the terms "Lender" and "Lenders" shall include the Administrative Agent in its
individual capacity.

8.9.     Successor Administrative Agent.  Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Administrative
Agent, the Administrative Agent may resign as Administrative Agent at any time upon 15 days notice by notifying
the Lenders and the Borrower.  If the Administrative Agent shall resign as Administrative Agent under this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents, then the Required Lenders shall appoint from among the Lenders a
successor agent for the Lenders, subject to approval by the Borrower, whereupon such successor agent shall
succeed to the rights, powers and duties of the Administrative Agent, and the term "Administrative Agent" shall
mean such successor agent effective upon such appointment and approval, and the former Administrative Agent's
rights, powers and duties as Administrative Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed
on the part of such former Administrative Agent or any of the parties to this Agreement or any holders of the
Loans.  In the event that no such successor Administrative Agent is so appointed by the Required Lenders within
30 days of the Administrative Agent's notice of resignation, the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of
the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent (subject to the approval of the Borrower).  After any
retiring Administrative Agent's resignation as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 8 shall inure
to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent under this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

8.10.    The Syndication Agent and Documentation Agents.  Neither the Syndication Agent nor the Documentation
Agents (nor any of them individually) in their respective capacities as such shall have any rights, duties or
responsibilities hereunder, or any fiduciary relationship with any Lender, and no implied covenants, functions,
responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or otherwise exist against
the Syndication Agent or either Documentation Agent in its capacity as such.

                                        SECTION 9. MISCELLANEOUS

9.1.     Amendments and Waivers.  The Required Lenders may, or, with the written consent of the Required Lenders,
the Administrative Agent may, from time to time, enter into with the Borrower written amendments, supplements,
modifications or waivers hereto and to the other Loan Documents; provided, however, that no such waiver and no
such amendment, supplement or modification shall (i) (A) reduce the amount or extend the scheduled date of

Page 39


maturity of any Loan or reimbursement obligation in respect of any LC Disbursement, (B) alter the pro rata
payment sharing requirements of the first sentence of Section 2.11(a), (C) reduce the stated rate of any interest
or fee payable hereunder or extend the scheduled date of any payment thereof or (D) increase the amount or extend
the termination date of any Lender's Commitment, in each case without the consent of each Lender affected
thereby, or (ii) amend, modify or waive any provision of this Section or reduce the percentage specified in the
definition of Required Lenders, in each case without the written consent of all the Lenders or (iii) amend,
modify or waive any provision of Section 8 without the written consent of the then Administrative Agent or any
provision directly affecting the rights or duties of the Issuing Lender without the written consent of the
Issuing Lender.

9.2.     Notices.  All notices, requests and demands to or upon the respective parties hereto to be effective
shall be in writing (including by facsimile transmission), and, unless otherwise expressly provided herein, shall
be deemed to have been duly given or made when delivered, addressed as follows in the case of the Borrower and

9.4.     Survival.  (a)  The agreements contained in Sections 2.13, 2.14, 2.15, 8.7 and 9.5 shall survive the
termination of this Agreement, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the payment of the
Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

(b)      All representations and warranties made hereunder, in the other Loan Documents and in any document,
certificate or statement delivered pursuant hereto or in connection herewith or therewith shall survive the
execution and delivery of this Agreement and the making of the Loans hereunder.

9.5.     Payment of Expenses and Taxes.  The Borrower agrees (a) to pay or reimburse the Administrative Agent for
all its reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with the development, preparation and
execution of, and any amendment, supplement or modification to, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents
including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of one joint counsel to the Agents in connection
with this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, (b) to pay or reimburse each Lender and the Administrative
Agent for all its out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement or preservation of
any rights under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents including, without limitation, the fees and
disbursements of one joint counsel to the Lenders and the Administrative Agent, provided that, notwithstanding
the foregoing, the Borrower agrees to pay or reimburse the fees and disbursements of separate counsel to any
Lender or the Administrative Agent to the extent of any conflict of interest among the Lenders or between the
Lenders and the Administrative Agent, (c) to pay, indemnify, or reimburse each Lender and the Administrative
Agent for, and hold each Lender and the Administrative Agent harmless from, any and all recording and filing fees
and any and all liabilities with respect to, or resulting from any delay in paying, stamp, excise and other taxes
(other than any net income or franchise taxes), if any, which may be payable or determined to be payable in
connection with the execution and delivery of, or consummation or administration of any of the transactions
contemplated by, or any amendment, supplement or modification of, or any waiver or consent under or in respect
of, this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any such other documents and (d) to pay, indemnify, and hold
each Lender, the Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent and their respective directors, officers, employees,
affiliates and agents (each, an "indemnified person") harmless from and against any and all other liabilities,
obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind
or nature whatsoever with respect to the execution, delivery, enforcement, performance and administration of this
Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the use of proceeds of the Loans or Letters of Credit (all the
foregoing in this clause (d), collectively, the "indemnified liabilities"), provided, that the Borrower shall
have no obligation hereunder to any indemnified person with respect to indemnified liabilities arising from the
gross negligence or willful misconduct of such indemnified person, from the breach by such indemnified person of
its Contractual Obligations to the Borrower or from negotiated settlements of pending or threatened legal actions
entered into by such indemnified person without the Borrower's consent (unless such consent has been unreasonably
withheld).

9.6.     Transfer Provisions.  (a)  Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to
the benefit of the Borrower, the Lenders, the Administrative Agent and their respective successors and assigns,
except that the Borrower may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without
the prior written consent of each Lender.


Page 41


(b)      Participations.  Any Lender may, in the ordinary course of its commercial lending business and in
accordance with applicable law, at any time sell to one or more banks or other entities ("Participants")
participating interests in any Loan owing to such Lender, any Commitment of such Lender or any other interest of
such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.  In the event of any such sale by a Lender of a
participating interest to a Participant, such Lender's obligations under this Agreement to the other parties to
this Agreement shall remain unchanged, such Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance thereof,
such Lender shall remain the holder of any such Loan for all purposes under this Agreement and the other Loan
Documents, and the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such
Lender in connection with such Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan
Documents.  The Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.13, 2.14 and
2.15 with respect to its participation in the Commitments and the Loans outstanding from time to time as if such
Participant were a Lender; provided that, in the case of Section 2.14, such Participant shall have complied with
the requirements of said Section, and provided, further that such Participant shall have complied with the
provisions of Section 2.16, and provided, further, that no Participant shall be entitled to receive any greater
amount pursuant to any such Section than the transferor Lender would have been entitled to receive in respect of
the amount of the participation transferred by such transferor Lender to such Participant had no such transfer
occurred.

(c)      Assignments.  Any Lender may, in the ordinary course of its commercial lending business and in
accordance with applicable law, at any time and from time to time, assign to any Lender or any Affiliate or
Approved Fund thereof or, with the consent of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender
(which consent of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender shall not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed and which consent shall not be required from the Borrower during the continuation of an Event
of Default), to an additional bank or financial institution (an "Assignee") all or any part of its rights and
obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents pursuant to an Assignment and Acceptance,
substantially in the form of Exhibit E (an "Assignment and Acceptance"), executed by such Assignee, such
assigning Lender, and (to the extent required by this paragraph) the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender
(and, in the case of an Assignee that is not then a Lender or an Affiliate thereof, by the Borrower) and
delivered to the Administrative Agent for its acceptance and recording in the Register, provided that, in the
case of any such assignment to an additional bank or financial institution, (i) the sum  (without duplication) of
the aggregate principal amount of the Commitments and Exposure being assigned shall not be less than $5,000,000
(or such lesser amount as may be agreed to by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent) and (ii) the sum
(without duplication) of the aggregate principal amount of the Commitments and Exposure retained by the assigning
Lender, if any, shall not be less than $5,000,000  (or such lesser amount as may be agreed to by the Borrower and
the Administrative Agent).  Upon such execution, delivery, acceptance and recording, from and after the effective
date determined pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, (x) the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto
and, to the extent provided in such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights and obligations of a Lender

Page 42



hereunder with a Commitment as set forth therein, and (y) the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent
provided in such Assignment and Acceptance, 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, such assigning Lender shall cease to be a party hereto), but shall retain its
rights pursuant to Sections 2.13, 2.14, 2.15 and 9.5 in respect of the period prior to such effective date.

(d)      The Register.  The Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Borrower, shall maintain at the address of the
Administrative Agent referred to in Section 9.2 a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to it and a
register (the "Register") for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitment of,
and principal amounts of the Loans and LC Exposure owing to, each Lender from time to time.  The entries in the
Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and
the Lenders may (and, in the case of any Loan or other obligation hereunder not evidenced by a Note, shall) treat
each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of a Loan or other obligation hereunder for all
purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.  Any
assignment of any Loan or other obligation hereunder not evidenced by a Note shall be effective only upon
appropriate entries with respect thereto being made in the Register.  The Register shall be available for
inspection by the Borrower or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior
notice.

(e)      Recordation.  Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Acceptance executed by an assigning Lender and an
Assignee, the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender (and, in the case of an Assignee that is not then a
Lender or an Affiliate thereof, by the Borrower) together with payment to the Administrative Agent of a
registration and processing fee of $3,500, the Administrative Agent shall (i) promptly accept such Assignment and
Acceptance and (ii) on the effective date determined pursuant thereto record the information contained therein in
the Register and give notice of such acceptance and recordation to the Lenders and the Borrower.

(f)      Disclosure.  Subject to Section 9.14, the Borrower authorizes each Lender to disclose to any Participant
or Assignee (each, a "Transferee") and any prospective Transferee, any and all financial information in such
Lender's possession concerning the Borrower and its Affiliates which has been delivered to such Lender by or on
behalf of the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or which has been delivered to such Lender by or on behalf of
the Borrower in connection with such Lender's credit evaluation of the Borrower and its Affiliates prior to
becoming a party to this Agreement.

(g)      Pledges.  For avoidance of doubt, the parties to this Agreement acknowledge that the provisions of this
Section concerning assignments of Loans and Notes relate only to absolute assignments and that such provisions do
not prohibit assignments creating security interests, including, without limitation, any pledge or assignment by
a Lender of any Loan or Note to any Federal Reserve Bank in accordance with applicable law.

9.7.     Adjustments; Set-Off.  (a)  Except to the extent that this Agreement expressly provides for payments to
be allocated to a particular Lender or Lenders, if any Lender (a "benefited Lender") shall at any time receive


Page 43


any payment of all or part of its Loans, or interest thereon, or LC Exposure, or receive any collateral in
respect thereof (whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by set-off, pursuant to events or proceedings of the
nature referred to in Section 7(d) or (e), or otherwise), in a greater proportion than any such payment to or
collateral received by any other Lender, if any, in respect of such other Lender's Loans, or interest thereon, or
LC Exposure, such benefited Lender shall purchase for cash from the other Lenders a participating interest in
such portion of each such other Lender's Loans and LC Exposure, or shall provide such other Lenders with the
benefits of any such collateral, or the proceeds thereof, as shall be necessary to cause such benefited Lender to
share the excess payment or benefits of such collateral or proceeds ratably with each of the Lenders; provided,
however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or benefits is thereafter recovered from such
benefited Lender, such purchase shall be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent
of such recovery, but without interest.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lender shall exercise any right of
set-off against the Borrower in connection with this Agreement without the consent of the Required Lenders.

(b)      In addition to any rights and remedies of the Lenders provided by law, each Lender shall have the right,
without prior notice to the Borrower, any such notice being expressly waived by the Borrower to the extent
permitted by applicable law, upon any amount becoming due and payable by the Borrower hereunder (whether at the
stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), to set off and appropriate and apply against such amount any and
all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other credits,
indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured
or unmatured, at any time held or owing by such Lender or any branch or agency thereof to or for the credit or
the account of the Borrower.  Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent
after any such setoff and application made by such Lender, provided that the failure to give such notice shall
not affect the validity of such setoff and application.

9.8.     Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Agreement on any
number of separate counterparts (including by facsimile transmission), and all of said counterparts taken
together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.  A set of the copies of this Agreement signed
by all the parties shall be lodged with the Borrower and the Administrative Agent.

9.9.     Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement which 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 not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

9.10.    Integration.  This Agreement and the other Loan Documents represent the agreement of the Borrower, the
Administrative Agent and the Lenders with respect to the subject matter hereof, and there are no promises,
undertakings, representations or warranties by the Administrative Agent or any Lender relative to subject matter
hereof not expressly set forth or referred to herein or in the other Loan Documents.

BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

SUPPLEMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT.

9.13.    Submission To Jurisdiction; Waivers.  The Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally:

(a)      submits for itself and its property in any legal action or proceeding relating to this Agreement and the
         other Loan Documents to which it is a party, or for recognition and enforcement of any judgment in
         respect thereof, to the non-exclusive general jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York, the
         courts of the United States for the Southern District of New York, and appellate courts from any thereof;

(b)      consents that any such action or proceeding may be brought in such courts and waives any objection that
         it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such action or proceeding in any such court or that
         such action or proceeding was brought in an inconvenient court and agrees not to plead or claim the same;

(c)      agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be effected by mailing a copy
         thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, to

         Administrative Agent shall have been notified pursuant thereto;

(d)      agrees that nothing herein shall affect the right to effect service of process in any other manner
         permitted by law or shall limit the right to sue in any other jurisdiction; and

         legal action or proceeding referred to in this Section any special, exemplary, punitive or consequential
         damages.

9.14.    Confidentiality.  Each of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders expressly agree, for the benefit of
the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information (as defined
below), except that Confidential Information may be disclosed (a) to its and its Affiliates' directors, officers,
employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the
Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Confidential

Page 45


Information and instructed to keep such Confidential Information confidential), (b) to the extent requested by
any regulatory authority, (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or
similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any
remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights
hereunder, (f) subject to an express agreement for the benefit of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries containing
provisions substantially the same as those of this Section 9.14, to any assignee of or participant in, or any
prospective assignee of or participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, (g) with the
prior express written consent of the Borrower or its Subsidiaries, as applicable, or (h) to the extent such
Confidential Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or
(ii) becomes available to the Administrative Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other
than the Borrower or its Subsidiaries.  For the purposes of this Section 9.14, "Confidential Information" means
all information, including material nonpublic information within the meaning of Regulation FD promulgated by the
SEC ("Regulation FD"), received from the Borrower or its Subsidiaries relating to such entities or their
respective businesses, other than any such information that is available to any Administrative Agent or any
Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by such entities; provided that, in the case of information
received from the Borrower or its Subsidiaries after the date hereof, such information is clearly identified at
the time of delivery as confidential.  Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Confidential
Information as provided in this Section 9.14 shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if
such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential
Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information; provided, however, that with respect
to disclosures pursuant to clauses (b) and (c) of this Section, unless prohibited by law or applicable court
order, each Lender and the Administrative Agent shall attempt to notify the Borrower and its Subsidiaries of any
request by any governmental agency or representative thereof or other Person for disclosure of Confidential
Information after receipt of such request, and if reasonable, practicable and permissible, before disclosure of
such Confidential Information.  It is understood and agreed that the Borrower, its Subsidiaries and their
respective Affiliates may rely upon this Section 9.14 for any purpose, including without limitation to comply
with Regulation FD.

9.15.    USA Patriot Act.  Each Lender hereby notifies the Borrower that pursuant to the requirements of the USA
Patriot Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the "Act"), it is required to
obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Borrower, which information includes the name and
address of the Borrower and other information that will allow such Lender to identify the Borrower in accordance
with the Act.
