(a) Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Revolving Commitments may be utilized, upon the request of Borrower, in addition to the Revolving Loans provided for by Section 2.01(a), for standby and commercial documentary letters of credit (herein collectively called “Letters of Credit”) issued by the applicable L/C Lender (which L/C Lenders agree to the terms and provisions of this Section 2.03 in reliance upon the agreements of the other Lenders set forth herein) for the account of Borrower or its Subsidiaries or, with respect to the Specified Letters of Credit (and any replacements thereof), its Affiliates; provided, however, that in no event shall (i) the aggregate amount of all L/C Liabilities, plus the aggregate principal amount of all the Revolving Loans then outstanding, exceed at any time the Total Revolving Commitments as in effect at such time, (ii) the sum of the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans of any Revolving Lender then outstanding, plus such Revolving Lender’s L/C Liability exceed at any time such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitment as in effect at such time, (iii) the outstanding aggregate amount of all L/C Liabilities exceed the L/C Sublimit and, in respect of each L/C Lender, the outstanding aggregate amount of L/C Liabilities in respect of such L/C Lender exceed its L/C Sublimit, (iv) the Dollar Equivalent of the Stated Amount of any Letter of Credit be less than $100,000 or such lesser amount as is acceptable to the L/C Lender, (v) the expiration date of any Letter of Credit extend beyond the earlier of (x) the third Business Day preceding the latest R/C Maturity Date then in effect and (y) the date twelve (12) months following the date of such issuance, unless in the case of this clause (y) the Required Revolving Lenders have approved such expiry date in writing (but never beyond the third Business Day prior to the latest R/C Maturity Date then in effect), except for any Letter of Credit that Borrower has agreed to Cash Collateralize in an amount equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount or otherwise backstop (with a letter of credit on customary terms) to the applicable L/C Lender’s and the Administrative Agent’s reasonable satisfaction, on or prior to the third Business Day preceding the latest R/C Maturity Date then in effect, subject to the ability of Borrower to request Auto-Extension Letters of Credit in accordance with Section 2.03(b), (vi) any L/C Lender issue any Letter of Credit after it has received notice from Borrower or the Required Revolving Lenders stating that a Default exists until such time as such L/C Lender shall have received written notice of (x) rescission of such notice from the Required Revolving Lenders, (y) waiver or cure of such Default in accordance with this Agreement or (z) Administrative Agent’s good faith determination that such Default has ceased to exist, (vii) any Letter of Credit be issued in a currency other than Dollars or an Alternate Currency nor at a tenor other than sight, or (viii) the L/C Lender be obligated to issue any Letter of Credit, amend or modify any outstanding Letter of Credit or extend the expiry date of any outstanding Letter of Credit at any time when a Revolving Lender is a Defaulting Lender if such Defaulting Lender’s L/C Liability cannot be reallocated to Non-Defaulting Lenders pursuant to Section 2.14(a) unless arrangements reasonably satisfactory to the L/C Lender and Borrower have been made to eliminate the L/C Lender’s risk with respect to the participation in Letters of Credit by all such Defaulting Lenders, including by Cash Collateralizing in an amount equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount, or obtaining a backstop letter of credit from an issuer reasonably satisfactory to the L/C Lender to support, each such Defaulting Lender’s L/C Liability. (b) Whenever Borrower requires the issuance of a Letter of Credit it shall give the applicable L/C Lender and Administrative Agent at least three (3) Business Days written notice (or such shorter period of notice


 
-54- acceptable to the L/C Lender). Such Letter of Credit application may be sent by facsimile, by United States mail, by overnight courier, by electronic transmission using the system agreed to by the applicable L/C Lender, by personal delivery or by any other means acceptable to the applicable L/C Lender. Each notice shall be in the form of Exhibit K or such other form as is reasonably acceptable to the applicable L/C Lender appropriately completed (each a “Letter of Credit Request”) and shall specify a date of issuance not beyond the fifth Business Day prior to the latest R/C Maturity Date then in effect. Each Letter of Credit Request must be accompanied by documentation describing in reasonable detail the proposed terms, conditions and format of the Letter of Credit to be issued, and if so requested by any L/C Lender each Letter of Credit Request shall be accompanied by such L/C Lender’s form of application but which application shall not contain any operating or financial covenants or any provisions inconsistent with this Agreement. If Borrower so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Request, the applicable L/C Lender may, in its sole discretion, agree to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an “Auto-Extension Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Auto-Extension Letter of Credit must permit the L/C Lender to decline any such extension at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the “Non- Extension Notice Date”) in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the L/C Lender at the time of the original issuance or automatic extension of a Letter of Credit, Borrower shall not be required to make a specific request to the L/C Lender for any such extension. Once an Auto-Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the L/C Lender to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than the third Business Day preceding the latest R/C Maturity Date then in effect (provided, that such three (3) Business Day limitation shall not apply to any Letter of Credit that Borrower has agreed to Cash Collateralize in an amount equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount or otherwise backstop (with a letter of credit on customary terms) to the applicable L/C Lender’s and the Administrative Agent’s reasonable satisfaction prior to the extension thereof); provided, however, that the L/C Lender shall not permit any such extension if (A) the L/C Lender has determined that it would not be permitted, or would have no obligation, at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its revised form (as extended) under the terms hereof (by reason of the provisions of Section 2.03(a) or otherwise), or (B) it has received notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is seven Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date (1) from the Administrative Agent that the Required Lenders have elected not to permit such extension or (2) from the Administrative Agent, any Lender or Borrower that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 7.02 is not then satisfied, and in each such case directing the L/C Lender not to permit such extension. If there is any conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and condition of any application, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall govern. Each Lender hereby authorizes each L/C Lender to issue and perform its obligations with respect to Letters of Credit and each Letter of Credit shall be issued in accordance with the customary procedures of such L/C Lender. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the failure of any L/C Lender to require an application at any time and from time to time shall not restrict or impair such L/C Lender’s right to require such an application or agreement as a condition to the issuance of any subsequent Letter of Credit. (c) On each day during the period commencing with the issuance by the applicable L/C Lender of any Letter of Credit and until such Letter of Credit shall have expired or been terminated, the Revolving Commitment of each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to be utilized for all purposes hereof in an amount equal to such Lender’s R/C Percentage of the Dollar Equivalent of the then Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit plus the amount of any unreimbursed drawings thereunder (the amount of such unreimbursed drawings shall be expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency). Each Revolving Lender (other than the applicable L/C Lender) severally agrees that, upon the issuance of any Letter of Credit hereunder, it shall automatically acquire from the L/C Lender that issued such Letter of Credit, without recourse, a participation in such L/C Lender’s obligation to fund drawings and rights under such Letter of Credit in an amount equal to such Lender’s R/C Percentage of such obligation (such obligation to fund drawings shall be expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency) and rights, and each Revolving Lender (other than such L/C Lender) thereby shall absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably assume, as primary obligor and not as surety, and shall be unconditionally obligated to such L/C Lender to pay and discharge when due, its R/C Percentage of such L/C Lender’s obligation to fund drawings (such obligation to fund drawings shall be expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency) under such Letter of Credit. Such L/C Lender shall be deemed to hold an L/C Liability in an amount equal to its retained


 
-55- interest in the related Letter of Credit after giving effect to such acquisition by the Revolving Lenders other than such L/C Lender of their participation interests. (d) In the event that any L/C Lender has determined to honor a drawing under a Letter of Credit, such L/C Lender shall promptly notify (the “L/C Payment Notice”) Administrative Agent and Borrower of the amount paid by such L/C Lender and the date on which payment is to be made to such beneficiary. In the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency, Borrower shall reimburse the L/C Lender that issued such Letter of Credit in Dollars. In the case of any such reimbursement in Dollars of a drawing under a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency, the applicable L/C Lender shall notify Administrative Agent and Borrower of the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of the drawing following the determination thereof in accordance with Section 1.05. Borrower hereby unconditionally agrees to pay and reimburse such L/C Lender, through the Administrative Agent, for the amount of payment under such Letter of Credit in Dollars, together with interest thereon at a rate per annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate in effect from time to time plus the Applicable Margin applicable to Revolving Loans that are maintained as ABR Loans as are in effect from time to time (determined based on a weighted average if multiple Tranches of Revolving Commitments are then outstanding) from the date payment was made to such beneficiary to the date on which payment is due, such payment to be made not later than the second Business Day after the date on which Borrower receives the applicable L/C Payment Notice (or the third Business Day thereafter if such L/C Payment Notice is received on a date that is not a Business Day or after 1:00 p.m., New York time, on a Business Day). Any such payment due from Borrower and not paid on the required date shall thereafter bear interest at rates specified in Section 3.02(b) until paid. Promptly upon receipt of the amount paid by Borrower pursuant to the immediately prior sentence, the applicable L/C Lender shall notify Administrative Agent of such payment and whether or not such payment constitutes payment in full of the Reimbursement Obligation under the applicable Letter of Credit. (e) Promptly upon its receipt of a L/C Payment Notice referred to in Section 2.03(d), Borrower shall advise the applicable L/C Lender and Administrative Agent whether or not Borrower intends to borrow hereunder to finance its obligation to reimburse such L/C Lender for the amount of the related demand for payment under the applicable Letter of Credit and, if it does so intend, submit a Notice of Borrowing for such borrowing to Administrative Agent as provided in Section 4.05. In the event that Borrower fails to reimburse any L/C Lender, through the Administrative Agent, for a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit by the second Business Day after the date of the applicable L/C Payment Notice (or the third Business Day thereafter if such L/C Payment Notice is received on a date that is not a Business Day or after 1:00 p.m., New York time on a Business Day), such L/C Lender shall promptly notify Administrative Agent of such failure by Borrower to so reimburse and of the amount of the demand for payment (expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency). In the event that Borrower fails to either submit a Notice of Borrowing to Administrative Agent as provided above or reimburse such L/C Lender, through the Administrative Agent, for a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit by the second Business Day after the date of the applicable L/C Payment Notice (or the third Business Day thereafter if such L/C Payment Notice is received on a date that is not a Business Day or after 1:00 p.m., New York time, on a Business Day), Administrative Agent shall give each Revolving Lender prompt notice of the amount of the demand for payment (expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency) including the interest therein owed by Borrower (the “Unreimbursed Amount”), specifying such Lender’s R/C Percentage thereof and requesting payment of such amount. (f) Each Revolving Lender (other than the applicable L/C Lender) shall pay to Administrative Agent for account of the applicable L/C Lender at the Principal Office in Dollars and in immediately available funds, an amount equal to such Revolving Lender’s R/C Percentage of the Unreimbursed Amount upon not less than one Business Day’s actual notice by Administrative Agent as described in Section 2.03(e) to such Revolving Lender requesting such payment and specifying such amount. Administrative Agent will promptly remit the funds so received to the applicable L/C Lender in Dollars. Each such Revolving Lender’s obligation to make such payments to Administrative Agent for the account of L/C Lender under this Section 2.03(f), and the applicable L/C Lender’s right to receive the same, shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including (i) the failure of any other Revolving Lender to make its payment under this Section 2.03(f), (ii) the financial condition of Borrower or the existence of any Default or (iii) the termination of the Commitments.


 
-56- Each such payment to any L/C Lender shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. (g) Upon the making of each payment by a Revolving Lender, through the Administrative Agent, to an L/C Lender pursuant to Section 2.03(f) in respect of any Letter of Credit, such Revolving Lender shall, automatically and without any further action on the part of Administrative Agent, such L/C Lender or such Revolving Lender, acquire (i) a participation in an amount equal to such payment in the Reimbursement Obligation owing to such L/C Lender by Borrower hereunder and under the L/C Documents relating to such Letter of Credit and (ii) a participation equal to such Revolving Lender’s R/C Percentage in any interest or other amounts (such interest and other amounts expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency) (other than cost reimbursements) payable by Borrower hereunder and under such L/C Documents in respect of such Reimbursement Obligation. If any L/C Lender receives directly from or for the account of Borrower any payment in respect of any Reimbursement Obligation or any such interest or other amounts (including by way of setoff or application of proceeds of any collateral security), such L/C Lender shall promptly pay to Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender which has satisfied its obligations under Section 2.03(f), such Revolving Lender’s R/C Percentage of the Dollar Equivalent of such payment, each such payment by such L/C Lender to be made in Dollars. In the event any payment received by such L/C Lender and so paid to the Revolving Lenders hereunder is rescinded or must otherwise be returned by such L/C Lender, each Revolving Lender shall, upon the request of such L/C Lender (through Administrative Agent), repay to such L/C Lender (through Administrative Agent) the amount of such payment paid to such Revolving Lender, with interest at the rate specified in Section 2.03(j). (h) Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent, for the account of each Revolving Lender, and with respect to each Tranche of Revolving Commitments, in respect of each Letter of Credit and each Tranche of Revolving Commitments for which such Revolving Lender has a L/C Liability, a letter of credit commission equal to (x) the rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans of such Tranche made by such Revolving Lender that are LIBOR Loans in effect from time to time, multiplied by (y) the daily Dollar Equivalent of the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit allocable to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitments of such Tranche (such Dollar Equivalent to be determined in accordance with Section 1.05) for the period from and including the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit (i) in the case of a Letter of Credit which expires in accordance with its terms, to and including such expiration date and (ii) in the case of a Letter of Credit which is drawn in full or is otherwise terminated other than on the stated expiration date of such Letter of Credit, to and excluding the date such Letter of Credit is drawn in full or is terminated. Such commission will be non-refundable and is to be paid (1) quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Date and (2) on each R/C Maturity Date. In addition, Borrower shall pay to each L/C Lender, for such L/C Lender's account a fronting fee with respect to each Letter of Credit (whether commercial or standby) at the rate of 0.125% per annum, computed on the Dollar Equivalent of the daily amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit, or increase thereof, on a quarterly basis in arrears. Such fronting fee shall be due and payable on each Quarterly Date in respect of the most recently-ended quarterly period (or portion thereof, in the case of the first payment), commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the latest R/C Maturity Date and thereafter on demand. For purposes of computing the daily amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.07. In addition Borrower agrees to pay to each L/C Lender all charges, costs and expenses in the amounts customarily charged by such L/C Lender, from time to time in like circumstances, with respect to the issuance, amendment, transfer, payment of drawings, and other transactions relating thereto. (i) Upon the issuance of or amendment or modification to a Letter of Credit, the applicable L/C Lender shall promptly deliver to Administrative Agent and Borrower a written notice of such issuance, amendment or modification and such notice shall be accompanied by a copy of such Letter of Credit or the respective amendment or modification thereto, as the case may be. Promptly upon receipt of such notice, Administrative Agent shall deliver to each Revolving Lender a written notice regarding such issuance, amendment or modification, as the case may be, and, if so requested by a Revolving Lender, Administrative Agent shall deliver to such Revolving Lender a copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment or modification, as the case may be.


 
-57- (j) If and to the extent that any Revolving Lender fails to pay an amount required to be paid pursuant to Section 2.03(f) or 2.03(g) on the due date therefor, such Revolving Lender shall pay to the applicable L/C Lender (through Administrative Agent) interest on such amount with respect to each Tranche of Revolving Commitments held by such Revolving Lender for each day from and including such due date to but excluding the date such payment is made at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate (as in effect from time to time) for the first three days and at the interest rate (in effect from time to time) applicable to Revolving Loans under such Tranche made by such Revolving Lender that are maintained as ABR Loans for each date thereafter. If any Revolving Lender holds Revolving Commitments of more than one Tranche and such Revolving Lender makes a partial payment of amounts due by it under Section 2.03(f) or 2.03(g), such partial payment shall be allocated pro rata to each Tranche based on the amount of Revolving Commitments of each Tranche held by such Revolving Lender. (k) The issuance by any L/C Lender of any amendment or modification to any Letter of Credit hereunder that would extend the expiry date or increase the Stated Amount thereof shall be subject to the same conditions applicable under this Section 2.03 to the issuance of new Letters of Credit, and no such amendment or modification shall be issued hereunder (i) unless either (x) the respective Letter of Credit affected thereby would have complied with such conditions had it originally been issued hereunder in such amended or modified form or (y) the Required Revolving Lenders (or other specified Revolving Lenders to the extent required by Section 13.04) shall have consented thereto or (ii) if the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed terms of the Letter of Credit. (l) Notwithstanding the foregoing, no L/C Lender shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if at the time of such issuance, (i) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such L/C Lender from issuing the Letter of Credit, or any Law applicable to such L/C Lender or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such L/C Lender shall prohibit, or request that such L/C Lender refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such L/C Lender with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which such L/C Lender is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon such L/C Lender any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing Date and which such L/C Lender in good faith deems material to it or (ii) the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such L/C Lender applicable to letters of credit generally. (m) The obligations of Borrower under this Agreement and any L/C Document to reimburse any L/C Lender for a drawing under a Letter of Credit, and to repay any drawing under a Letter of Credit converted into Revolving Loans, shall be unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and each such other L/C Document under all circumstances, including the following: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement, any Credit Document or any L/C Document; (ii) the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right that Borrower may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), any L/C Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by the L/C Documents or any unrelated transaction; (iii) any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any Letter of Credit; or any defense based upon the failure of any drawing under a Letter of Credit to conform to the terms of the Letter of Credit or any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such drawing;


 
-58- (iv) waiver by a L/C Lender of any requirement that exists for the L/C Lender’s protection and not the protection of Borrower or any waiver by the L/C Lender which does not in fact materially prejudice Borrower; (v) honor of a demand for payment presented electronically even if such Letter of Credit requires that demand be in the form of a draft; (vi) any payment made by a L/C Lender in respect of an otherwise complying item presented after the date specified as the expiration date of, or the date by which documents must be received under such Letter of Credit if presentation after such date is authorized by the UCC, the ISP or the UCP, as applicable; (vii) any payment by a L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by a L/C Lender under such Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in- possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law; or (viii) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, Borrower or a Guarantor. To the extent that any provision of any L/C Document is inconsistent with the provisions of this Section 2.03, the provisions of this Section 2.03 shall control. (n) On the last Business Day of each month, Borrower and each L/C Lender shall provide to Administrative Agent such information regarding the outstanding Letters of Credit as Administrative Agent shall reasonably request, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent (and in such standard electronic format as Administrative Agent shall reasonably specify), for purposes of Administrative Agent’s ongoing tracking and reporting of outstanding Letters of Credit. Administrative Agent shall maintain a record of all outstanding Letters of Credit based upon information provided by Borrower and the L/C Lenders pursuant to this Section 2.03(n), and such record of Administrative Agent shall, absent manifest error, be deemed a correct and conclusive record of all Letters of Credit outstanding from time to time hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if and to the extent Administrative Agent determines that there are one or more discrepancies between information provided by Borrower and any L/C Lender hereunder, Administrative Agent will notify Borrower and such L/C Lender thereof and Borrower and such L/C Lender shall endeavor to reconcile any such discrepancy. In addition to and without limiting the foregoing, with respect to commercial documentary Letters of Credit, on the first Business Day of each week the applicable L/C Lender shall deliver to Administrative Agent, by facsimile or electronic mail, a report detailing the daily outstanding commercial documentary Letters of Credit for the previous week for such Letters of Credit issued in Dollars and for such Letters of Credit issued in an Alternate Currency. (o) Each Lender and Borrower agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, the L/C Lender shall not have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of the L/C Lenders, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents and advisors nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of any L/C Lender shall be liable to any Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Lenders or the Required Lenders, as applicable; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit. Borrower hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude Borrower’s pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of the L/C Lenders, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Affiliates,


 
-59- directors, officers, employees, agents and advisors nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of the L/C Lenders shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in clauses (i) through (viii) of Section 2.03(m); provided, however, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, Borrower may have a claim against a L/C Lender, and a L/C Lender may be liable to Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by Borrower which Borrower proves were caused by such L/C Lender’s willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence or such L/C Lender’s willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the L/C Lenders may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and the L/C Lenders shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason. The L/C Lenders may send a Letter of Credit or conduct any communication to or from the beneficiary via the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (“SWIFT”) message or overnight courier, or any other commercially reasonable means of communicating with a beneficiary. (p) Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the applicable L/C Lender and Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued (including any such agreement applicable to an Existing Letter of Credit), (i) the rules of the ISP shall apply to each standby Letter of Credit, and (ii) the rules of the UCP shall apply to each commercial Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the L/C Lenders shall not be responsible to Borrower for, and the L/C Lenders’ rights and remedies against Borrower shall not be impaired by, any action or inaction of the L/C Lenders required or permitted under any law, order, or practice that is required or permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including the law or any order of a jurisdiction where such L/C Lender or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP, as applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the ICC Banking Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association (BAFT-IFSA), or the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit chooses such law or practice. (q) Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of any obligations of, or is for the account of, a Subsidiary, Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse the applicable L/C Lender hereunder for any and all drawings under such Letter of Credit. Borrower hereby acknowledges that the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of Subsidiaries inures to the benefit of Borrower, and that Borrower’s business derives substantial benefits from the businesses of such Subsidiaries. (r) A Revolving Lender may become an additional L/C Lender hereunder with the approval of the Administrative Agent (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), Borrower and such Revolving Lender, pursuant to an agreement with, and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to, the Administrative Agent, Borrower and such Revolving Lender. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Revolving Lenders of any such additional L/C Lender. SECTION 2.04. Termination and Reductions of Commitment. (a) (i) In addition to any other mandatory commitment reductions pursuant to this Section 2.04, the aggregate amount of the Term Facility Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced by the amount of Term Facility Loans made in respect thereof from time to time. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, any outstanding Term Facility Commitments shall automatically terminate upon the earlier of (x) the Term Facility Commitments being fully funded pursuant to Section 2.01(b) and (y) at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the last Business Day of the Term Facility Availability Period. (ii) The aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments of any Tranche shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the R/C Maturity Date applicable to such Tranche, and the L/C Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the last R/C Maturity Date.


 
-60- (b) Borrower shall have the right at any time or from time to time (without premium or penalty except breakage costs (if any) pursuant to Section 5.05) (i) so long as no Revolving Loans or L/C Liabilities will be outstanding as of the date specified for termination (after giving effect to all transactions occurring on such date), to terminate the Revolving Commitments in their entirety, (ii) to reduce the aggregate amount of the Unutilized R/C Commitments (which shall be pro rata among the Revolving Lenders), (iii) to reduce the aggregate amount of the unutilized Term Facility Commitments (which shall be pro rata among the Term Facility Lenders) and (iv) so long as the remaining Total Revolving Commitments will equal or exceed the aggregate amount of outstanding Revolving Loans and L/C Liabilities, to reduce the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments (which shall be pro rata among the Revolving Lenders); provided, however, that (x) Borrower shall give notice of each such termination or reduction as provided in Section 4.05, and (y) each partial reduction shall be in an aggregate amount at least equal to $5.0 million (or any whole multiple of $1.0 million in excess thereof) or, if less, the remaining Unutilized R/C Commitments or unutilized Term Facility Commitments, as applicable. (c) Any Commitment once terminated or reduced may not be reinstated. (d) Each reduction or termination of any of the Commitments applicable to any Tranche pursuant to this Section 2.04 shall be applied ratably among the Lenders with such a Commitment, as the case may be, in accordance with their respective Commitment, as applicable. SECTION 2.05. Fees. (a) Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender (other than a Defaulting Lender), with respect to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Commitments of each Tranche and for the account of each Term Facility Lender (other than a Defaulting Lender), with respect to such Term Facility Lender’s Term Facility Commitments, a commitment fee for the period from and including the Closing Date (or, following the conversion of any such Revolving Commitment into another Tranche, the applicable Extension Date) to but not including (x) for Revolving Commitments the earlier of (i) the date such Revolving Commitment is terminated or expires (or is modified to constitute another Tranche) and (ii) the R/C Maturity Date applicable to such Revolving Commitment, and (y) for Term Facility Commitments the date such Term Facility Commitment is terminated or expires, in each case, computed at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Fee Percentage in respect of such Tranche in effect from time to time during such period on the actual daily amount of such Revolving Lender’s Unutilized R/C Commitment in respect of such Tranche or such Term Facility Lender’s unutilized Term Facility Commitment, as applicable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the definition of “Unutilized R/C Commitments,” for purposes of determining Unutilized R/C Commitments in connection with computing commitment fees with respect to Revolving Commitments, a Revolving Commitment of a Revolving Lender shall be deemed to be used to the extent of the outstanding Revolving Loans and L/C Liability of such Revolving Lender. Any accrued commitment fee under this Section 2.05(a) in respect of any Revolving Commitment or Term Facility Commitment shall be payable in arrears on each Quarterly Date and on the earlier of (i) the date the applicable Revolving Commitment is modified to constitute another Tranche or Term Facility Commitment is terminated or expires, as applicable, and (ii) for any Revolving Commitment, the R/C Maturity Date applicable to such Revolving Commitment and, for any Term Facility Commitment, the termination of the Term Facility Availability Period. (b) Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent for its own account the administrative fee separately agreed to in the Fee Letter. (c) Borrower shall pay to Auction Manager for its own account, in connection with any Borrower Loan Purchase, such fees as may be agreed between Borrower and Auction Manager. SECTION 2.06. Lending Offices. The Loans of each Type made by each Lender shall be made and maintained at such Lender’s Applicable Lending Office for Loans of such Type. Each Lender may, at its option but subject to Section 5.06 as if such branch or Affiliate was deemed a “Lender” thereunder for purposes of documentation delivered to the Administrative Agent and payments required to be made to Borrower thereunder, make any Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect in any manner the obligation of Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.


 
-61- SECTION 2.07. Several Obligations of Lenders. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan to be made by it on the date specified therefor shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation to make its Loan on such date, but neither any Lender nor Administrative Agent shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make a Loan to be made by such other Lender, and no Lender shall have any obligation to Administrative Agent or any other Lender for the failure by such Lender to make any Loan required to be made by such Lender. No Revolving Lender will be responsible for failure of any other Lender to fund its participation in Letters of Credit. SECTION 2.08. Notes; Register. (a) At the request of any Lender, its Loans of a particular Class shall be evidenced by a promissory note, payable to such Lender or its registered assigns and otherwise duly completed, substantially in the form of Exhibits A-1 and A-2 of such Lender’s Revolving Loans and Term Facility Loans, respectively; provided that any promissory notes issued in respect of Other Term Loans, Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Loans shall be in such form as mutually agreed by Borrower and Administrative Agent. (b) The date, amount, Type, interest rate and duration of the Interest Period (if applicable) of each Loan of each Class made by each Lender to Borrower and each payment made on account of the principal thereof, shall be recorded by such Lender or its registered assigns on its books and, prior to any transfer of any Note evidencing the Loans of such Class held by it, endorsed by such Lender (or its nominee) on the schedule attached to such Note or any continuation thereof; provided, however, that the failure of such Lender (or its nominee) to make any such recordation or endorsement or any error in such recordation or endorsement shall not affect the obligations of Borrower to make a payment when due of any amount owing hereunder or under such Note. (c) Borrower hereby designates Administrative Agent to serve as its nonfiduciary agent, solely for purposes of this Section 2.08, to maintain a register (the “Register”) on which it will record the name and address of each Lender, the Commitment from time to time of each of the Lenders, the principal and interest amounts of the Loans made by each of the Lenders and each repayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans of each Lender. Failure to make any such recordation or any error in such recordation shall not affect Borrower’s obligations in respect of such Loans. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive of the information noted therein (absent manifest error), and the parties hereto shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of a Loan or other obligation hereunder as the owner thereof for all purposes of the Credit Documents, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. No assignment shall be effective unless recorded in the Register; provided that Administrative Agent agrees to record in the Register any assignment entered into pursuant to the term hereof promptly after the effectiveness of such assignment. SECTION 2.09. Optional Prepayments and Conversions or Continuations of Loans. (a) Subject to Section 4.04, Borrower shall have the right to prepay Loans (without premium or penalty), or to convert Loans of one Type into Loans of another Type or to continue Loans of one Type as Loans of the same Type, at any time or from time to time. Borrower shall give Administrative Agent notice of each such prepayment, conversion or continuation as provided in Section 4.05 (and, upon the date specified in any such notice of prepayment, the amount to be prepaid shall become due and payable hereunder; provided that Borrower may make any such notice conditional upon the occurrence of a Person’s acquisition or sale or any incurrence of indebtedness or issuance of Equity Interests). Each Notice of Continuation/Conversion shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit C. If LIBOR Loans are prepaid or converted other than on the last day of an Interest Period therefor, Borrower shall at such time pay all expenses and costs required by Section 5.05. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and without limiting the rights and remedies of the Lenders under Article XI, in the event that any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Administrative Agent may (and, at the request of the Required Lenders, shall), upon written notice to Borrower, have the right to suspend the right of Borrower to convert any Loan into a LIBOR Loan, or to continue any Loan as a LIBOR Loan, in which event all Loans shall be converted (on the last day(s) of the respective Interest Periods therefor) or continued, as the case may be, as ABR Loans. (b) Application.


 
-62- (i) The amount of any optional prepayments described in Section 2.09(a) shall be applied to prepay Loans outstanding in order of amortization, in amounts and to Tranches, all as determined by Borrower. (ii) In addition to the foregoing, following the earlier of the Wynn Las Vegas Reorganization and the Wynn Massachusetts Project Opening Date and provided that (I) prior to the Initial Test Date, the Consolidated Senior Secured Net Leverage Ratio is less than 2.50 to 1.00 on a Pro Forma Basis (calculated assuming all amounts offered pursuant to this clause (b)(ii) were accepted as prepayment for the Loans and applied thereto) as of the most recent Calculation Date and (II) from and after the Initial Test Date, Borrower shall be in compliance on a Pro Forma Basis with the Financial Maintenance Covenant (whether or not then in effect) (calculated assuming all amounts offered pursuant to this clause (b)(ii) were accepted as prepayment for the Loans and applied thereto) as of the most recent Calculation Date, Borrower shall have the right to elect to offer to prepay at par the Loans pro rata to the Term Facility Loans, the Extended Term Loans and the Other Term Loans then outstanding and apply any amounts rejected for such prepayment to repurchase, prepay, redeem, retire, acquire, defease or cancel Indebtedness or make Restricted Payments notwithstanding any then applicable limitations set forth in Section 10.09 or 10.06, respectively. If Borrower makes such an election, it shall provide notice thereof to Administrative Agent, who shall promptly, and in any event within one Business Day of receipt, provide such notice to the holders of the Term Loans. Any such notice shall specify the aggregate amount offered to prepay the Term Loans. Each holder of a Term Facility Loan, an Other Term Loan or an Extended Term Loan may elect, in its sole discretion, to reject such prepayment offer with respect to an amount equal to or less than (w) with respect to holders of Term Facility Loans, an amount equal to the aggregate amount so offered to prepay Term Facility Loans times a fraction, the numerator of which is the principal amount of Term Facility Loans owed to such holder and the denominator of which is the principal amount of Term Facility Loans outstanding, (x) with respect to holders of Other Term Loans, an amount equal to the aggregate amount so offered to prepay Other Term Loans times a fraction, the numerator of which is the principal amount of Other Term Loans owed to such holder and the denominator of which is the principal amount of Other Term Loans outstanding and (y) with respect to holders of Extended Term Loans, an amount equal to the aggregate amount so offered to prepay Extended Term Loans times a fraction, the numerator of which is the principal amount of Extended Term Loans owed to such holder and the denominator of which is the principal amount of Extended Term Loans outstanding. Any rejection of such offer must be evidenced by written notice delivered to Administrative Agent within five Business Days of receipt of the offer for prepayment, specifying an amount of such prepayment offer rejected by such holder, if any. Failure to give such notice will constitute an election to accept such offer. Any portion of such prepayment offer so accepted will be used to prepay the Term Loans held by the applicable holders within ten Business Days of the date of receipt of the offer to prepay. Any portion of such prepayment rejected may be used by Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries to repurchase, prepay, redeem, retire, acquire, defease or cancel Indebtedness or make Restricted Payments notwithstanding any then applicable limitations set forth in Section 10.09 or 10.06, respectively. SECTION 2.10. Mandatory Prepayments. (a) Borrower shall prepay the Loans as follows (each such prepayment to be effected in each case in the manner, order and to the extent specified in Section 2.10(b) below): (i) Casualty Events. Within five (5) Business Days after Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary receives any Net Available Proceeds from any Casualty Event or any disposition pursuant to Section 10.05(l) (or notice of collection by Administrative Agent of the same), in an aggregate principal amount equal to 100% of such Net Available Proceeds (it being understood that applications pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(i) shall not be duplicative of Section 2.10(a)(iii) below); provided, however, that: (x) if no Event of Default then exists or would arise therefrom, the Net Available Proceeds thereof shall not be required to be so applied on such date to the extent that Borrower delivers an Officer’s Certificate to Administrative Agent stating that an amount equal to such proceeds is intended to be used to fund the acquisition of Property used or usable in the business


 
-63- of any Credit Party or repair, replace or restore the Property or other Property used or usable in the business of any Credit Party (in accordance with the provisions of the applicable Security Document in respect of which such Casualty Event has occurred, to the extent applicable), in each case within (A) twelve (12) months following receipt of such Net Available Proceeds or (B) if Borrower or the relevant Restricted Subsidiary enters into a legally binding commitment to reinvest such Net Available Proceeds within twelve (12) months following receipt thereof, within the later of (1) one hundred and eighty (180) days following the date of such legally binding commitment and (2) twelve (12) months following receipt of such Net Available Proceeds, and (y) if all or any portion of such Net Available Proceeds not required to be applied to the prepayment of Loans pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(i) is not so used within the period specified by clause (x) above, such remaining portion shall be applied on the last day of such period as specified in Section 2.10(b). Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10(a)(i) or otherwise, no mandatory prepayment shall be required pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(i) in any fiscal year until the date on which the Net Available Proceeds required to be applied as mandatory prepayments pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(i) in such fiscal year shall exceed $15.0 million (and thereafter only Net Available Proceeds in excess of such amount shall be required to be applied as mandatory prepayments pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(i)). (ii) Debt Issuance. Within five (5) Business Days after any Debt Issuance on or after the Closing Date, in an aggregate principal amount equal to 100% of the Net Available Proceeds of such Debt Issuance. (iii) Asset Sales. Within five (5) Business Days after receipt by Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of any Net Available Proceeds from any Asset Sale pursuant to Section 10.05(c), in an aggregate principal amount equal to 100% of the Net Available Proceeds from such Asset Sale (it being understood that applications pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(iii) shall not be duplicative of Section 2.10(a)(i) above); provided, however, that: (x) an amount equal to the Net Available Proceeds from any Asset Sale pursuant to Section 10.05(c) shall not be required to be applied as provided above on such date if (1) no Event of Default then exists or would arise therefrom and (2) Borrower delivers an Officer’s Certificate to Administrative Agent stating that an amount equal to such Net Available Proceeds is intended to be reinvested, directly or indirectly, in assets (which may be pursuant to an acquisition of Equity Interests of a Person that directly or indirectly owns such assets) otherwise permitted under this Agreement of (A) if such Asset Sale was effected by any Credit Party, any Credit Party, and (B) if such Asset Sale was effected by any other Company, any Company, in each case within (x) twelve (12) months following receipt of such Net Available Proceeds or (y) if Borrower or the relevant Restricted Subsidiary enters into a legally binding commitment to reinvest such Net Available Proceeds within twelve (12) months following receipt thereof, within the later of (A) one hundred and eighty (180) days following the date of such legally binding commitment and (B) twelve (12) months following receipt of such Net Available Proceeds (which certificate shall set forth the estimates of the proceeds to be so expended); and (y) if all or any portion of such Net Available Proceeds is not reinvested in assets in accordance with the Officer’s Certificate referred to in clause (x) above within the period specified by clause (x) above, such remaining portion shall be applied on the last day of such period as specified in Section 2.10(b). Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10(a)(iii) or otherwise, no mandatory prepayment shall be required pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(iii) in any fiscal year until the date on which the Net Available Proceeds required to be applied as mandatory prepayments pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(iii) in such fiscal year shall exceed $15.0 million (and thereafter only Net Available Proceeds in


 
-64- excess of such amount shall be required be applied as mandatory prepayments pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(iii)). (iv) Prepayments Not Required. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.10(a), to the extent that any of or all the Net Available Proceeds of any Asset Sale or Casualty Event with respect to any property or assets of Foreign Subsidiaries are prohibited or delayed by applicable local law from being repatriated to the United States, the portion of such Net Available Proceeds so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Term Loans at the times provided in this Section 2.10(a) but may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary so long as applicable local law does not permit repatriation to the United States (Borrower hereby agreeing to cause the applicable Foreign Subsidiary to promptly take all commercially reasonable actions required by the applicable local law to permit such repatriation), and once such repatriation of any of such affected Net Available Proceeds is permitted under the applicable local law, any such Net Available Proceeds shall be reinvested pursuant to Section 2.10(a)(i) or (iii), as applicable, or applied pursuant to Section 2.10(b) within five (5) Business Days of such repatriation. To the extent Borrower determines in good faith that repatriation of any of or all the Net Available Proceeds of any Asset Sale or Casualty Event with respect to any property or assets of Foreign Subsidiaries would have a material adverse tax costs or consequences to Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, such Net Available Proceeds so affected may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary; provided that, on or before the date on which the Net Available Proceeds so retained would otherwise have been required to be applied to reinvestments or prepayments pursuant to Section 2.10(a)(i) or (iii), as applicable, unless previously repatriated (in which case, any such Net Available Proceeds shall be reinvested pursuant to Section 2.10(a)(i) or (iii), as applicable, or applied pursuant to Section 2.10(b) within five (5) Business Days of such repatriation), (A) Borrower shall apply an amount equal to such Net Available Proceeds to such reinvestments or prepayments as if such Net Available Proceeds had been received by Borrower rather than such Foreign Subsidiary, minus, the amount of additional taxes that would have been payable or reserved against if such Net Available Proceeds had been repatriated (or, if less, the Net Available Proceeds that would be calculated if received by such Foreign Subsidiary) pursuant to Section 2.10(b) or (B) such Net Available Proceeds shall be applied to the repayment of Indebtedness of a Foreign Subsidiary. (v) Prepayments of Other First Lien Indebtedness. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of Section 2.10(a)(i), (ii), (iii) or otherwise, any Net Available Proceeds from any such Casualty Event, Debt Issuance or Asset Sale otherwise required to be applied to prepay the Loans may, at Borrower’s option, be applied to prepay the principal amount of Other First Lien Indebtedness only to (and not in excess of) the extent to which a mandatory prepayment in respect of such Casualty Event, Debt Issuance or Asset Sale is required under the terms of such Other First Lien Indebtedness (with any remaining Net Available Proceeds applied to prepay outstanding Loans in accordance with the terms hereof), unless such application would result in the holders of Other First Lien Indebtedness receiving in excess of their pro rata share (determined on the basis of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of Term Loans and Other First Lien Indebtedness at such time) of such Net Available Proceeds relative to Lenders, in which case such Net Available Proceeds may only be applied to prepay the principal amount of Other First Lien Indebtedness on a pro rata basis with outstanding Term Loans. To the extent the holders of Other First Lien Indebtedness decline to have such indebtedness repurchased, repaid or prepaid with any such Net Available Proceeds, the declined amount of such Net Available Proceeds shall promptly (and, in any event, within ten (10) Business Days after the date of such rejection) be applied to prepay Loans in accordance with the terms hereof (to the extent such Net Available Proceeds would otherwise have been required to be applied if such Other First Lien Indebtedness was not then outstanding). Any such application to Other First Lien Indebtedness shall reduce any prepayments otherwise required hereunder by an equivalent amount. (b) Application. The amount of any required prepayments described in Section 2.10(a) shall be applied to prepay Loans as follows: (i) First, to the reduction of Amortization Payments on the Term Loans required by Sections 3.01(b) and 3.01(c) and, in the case of the Term Facilities, to the remaining principal installments with respect thereto in direct order of maturity over the next succeeding four (4) quarterly installments and,


 
-65- thereafter, on a pro rata basis; provided that, each such prepayment shall, subject to the last paragraph of this Section 2.10(b), be applied to such Term Loans that are ABR Loans to the fullest extent thereof before application to Loans that are LIBOR Loans, and such prepayments of LIBOR Loans shall be applied in a manner that minimizes the amount of any payments required to be made by Borrower pursuant to Section 5.05; (ii) Second, after such time as no Term Loans or Permitted First Priority Refinancing Debt remain outstanding, to prepay all outstanding Revolving Loans (in each case, without any reduction in Revolving Commitments); and (iii) Third, after application of prepayments in accordance with clauses (i) and (ii) above, Borrower shall be permitted to retain any such remaining excess. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Term Facility Lender may elect, by written notice to Administrative Agent at least one (1) Business Day prior to the prepayment date, to decline all or any portion of any prepayment of its Term Loans, pursuant to this Section 2.10, in which case the aggregate amount of the prepayment that would have been applied to prepay such Term Loans, but was so declined shall be ratably offered to each Term Facility Lender that initially accepted such prepayment. Any such re-offered amounts rejected by such Lenders shall be retained by Borrower (any such retained amounts, “Declined Amounts”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the amount of any prepayment of Loans required under this Section 2.10 shall be in excess of the amount of the ABR Loans at the time outstanding, only the portion of the amount of such prepayment as is equal to the amount of such outstanding ABR Loans shall be immediately prepaid and, at the election of Borrower, the balance of such required prepayment shall be either (i) deposited in the Collateral Account and applied to the prepayment of LIBOR Loans on the last day of the then next-expiring Interest Period for LIBOR Loans (with all interest accruing thereon for the account of Borrower) or (ii) prepaid immediately, together with any amounts owing to the Lenders under Section 5.05. Notwithstanding any such deposit in the Collateral Account, interest shall continue to accrue on such Loans until prepayment. (c) Revolving Credit Extension Reductions. Until the final R/C Maturity Date, Borrower shall from time to time immediately prepay the Revolving Loans (and/or provide Cash Collateral in an amount equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount for, or otherwise backstop (with a letter of credit on customary terms reasonably acceptable to the applicable L/C Lender and the Administrative Agent), outstanding L/C Liabilities) in such amounts as shall be necessary (I) so that at all times (a) the aggregate outstanding amount of thFe Revolving Loans, plus, the aggregate outstanding L/C Liabilities shall not exceed the Total Revolving Commitments as in effect at such time and (b) the aggregate outstanding amount of the Revolving Loans of any Tranche allocable to such Tranche, plus the aggregate outstanding L/C Liabilities under such Tranche shall not exceed the aggregate Revolving Commitments of such Tranche as in effect at such time and (II) to comply with Section 7.02(a)(iii). (d) Outstanding Letters of Credit. If any Letter of Credit is outstanding on the 30th day prior to the next succeeding R/C Maturity Date which has an expiry date later than the third Business Day preceding such R/C Maturity Date (or which, pursuant to its terms, may be extended to a date later than the third Business Day preceding such R/C Maturity Date), then (i) if one or more Tranches of Revolving Commitments with a R/C Maturity Date after such R/C Maturity Date are then in effect, such Letters of Credit shall automatically be deemed to have been issued (including for purposes of the obligations of the Lenders with Revolving Commitments to purchase participations therein and to make Revolving Loans and payments in respect thereof and the commissions applicable thereto), effective as of such R/C Maturity Date, solely under (and ratably participated by Revolving Lenders pursuant to) the Revolving Commitments in respect of such non-terminating Tranches of Revolving Commitments, if any, up to an aggregate amount not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of the unutilized Revolving Commitments thereunder at such time, and (ii) to the extent not capable of being reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above, Borrower shall, on such 30th day (or on such later day as such Letters of Credit become incapable of being reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above due to the termination, reduction or utilization of any relevant Revolving Commitments), either (x) Cash Collateralize all such Letters of Credit in an amount not less than the Minimum Collateral Amount with respect to such Letters of Credit (it being understood that such Cash Collateral shall be released to the extent that the aggregate Stated Amount of such Letters of Credit is reduced upon the


 
-66- expiration or termination of such Letters of Credit, so that the Cash Collateral shall not exceed the Minimum Collateral Amount with respect to such Letters of Credit outstanding at any particular time) or (y) deliver to the applicable L/C Lender a standby letter of credit (other than a Letter of Credit) in favor of such L/C Lender in a stated amount not less than the Minimum Collateral Amount with respect to such Letters of Credit, which standby letter of credit shall be in form and substance, and issued by a financially sound financial institution, reasonably acceptable to such L/C Lender and the Administrative Agent. Except to the extent of reallocations of participations pursuant to clause (i) above, the occurrence of a R/C Maturity Date shall have no effect upon (and shall not diminish) the percentage participations of the Revolving Lenders of the relevant Tranche in any Letter of Credit issued before such R/C Maturity Date. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties hereto agree that upon the occurrence of any reallocations of participations pursuant to clause (i) above and, if necessary, the taking of the actions in described clause (ii) above, all participations in Letters of Credit under the terminated Revolving Commitments shall terminate. SECTION 2.11. Replacement of Lenders. (a) Borrower shall have the right to replace any Lender (the “Replaced Lender”) with one or more other Eligible Assignees (collectively, the “Replacement Lender”), if (x) such Lender is charging Borrower increased costs pursuant to Section 5.01 or 5.06 or such Lender becomes incapable of making LIBOR Loans as provided in Section 5.03 when other Lenders are generally able to do so, (y) such Lender is a Defaulting Lender or (z) such Lender is subject to Disqualification (and such Lender is notified by Borrower and Administrative Agent in writing of such Disqualification); provided, however, that (i) at the time of any such replacement, the Replacement Lender shall enter into one or more Assignment Agreements (and with all fees payable pursuant to Section 13.05(b) to be paid by the Replacement Lender or Borrower) pursuant to which the Replacement Lender shall acquire all of the Commitments and outstanding Loans of, and in each case L/C Interests of, the Replaced Lender (or if the Replaced Lender is being replaced as a result of being a Defaulting Lender, then the Replacement Lender shall acquire all Revolving Commitments, Revolving Loans and L/C Interests of such Replaced Lender under one or more Tranches of Revolving Commitments or, at the option of Borrower and such Replacement Lender, all other Loans and Commitments held by such Defaulting Lender), (ii) at the time of any such replacement, the Replaced Lender shall receive an amount equal to the sum of (A) the principal of, and all accrued interest on, all outstanding Loans of such Lender (other than any Loans not being acquired by a Replacement Lender), (B) all Reimbursement Obligations (expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternate Currency) owing to such Lender, together with all then unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time, in the event Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments owing to such Lender are being repaid and terminated or acquired, as the case may be, and (C) all accrued, but theretofore unpaid, fees owing to the Lender pursuant to Section 2.05 with respect to the Loans being assigned, as the case may be and (iii) all obligations of Borrower owing to such Replaced Lender (other than those specifically described in clause (i) above in respect of Replaced Lenders for which the assignment purchase price has been, or is concurrently being, paid, and other than those relating to Loans or Commitments not being acquired by a Replacement Lender, but including any amounts which would be paid to a Lender pursuant to Section 5.05 if Borrower were prepaying a LIBOR Loan), as applicable, shall be paid in full to such Replaced Lender, as applicable, concurrently with such replacement, as the case may be. Upon the execution of the respective Assignment Agreement, the payment of amounts referred to in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above, as applicable, the receipt of any consents that would be required for an assignment of the subject Loans and Commitments to such Replacement Lender in accordance with Section 13.05, the Replacement Lender, if any, shall become a Lender hereunder and the Replaced Lender, as applicable, shall cease to constitute a Lender hereunder and be released of all its obligations as a Lender, except with respect to indemnification provisions applicable to such Lender under this Agreement, which shall survive as to such Lender and, in the case of any Replaced Lender, except with respect to Loans, Commitments and L/C Interests of such Replaced Lender not being acquired by the Replacement Lender; provided, that if the applicable Replaced Lender does not execute the Assignment Agreement within three (3) Business Days after Borrower’s request, execution of such Assignment Agreement by the Replaced Lender shall not be required to effect such assignment. (b) If any Lender is subject to a Disqualification (and such Lender is notified by Borrower and Administrative Agent in writing of such Disqualification), Borrower shall have the right to replace such Lender with a Replacement Lender in accordance with Section 2.11(a) or prepay the Loans held by such Lender, in each case, in accordance with any applicable provisions of Section 2.11(a), even if a Default or an Event of Default exists


 
-67- (notwithstanding anything contained in such Section 2.11(a) to the contrary). Any such prepayment shall be deemed an optional prepayment, as set forth in Section 2.09 and shall not be required to be made on a pro rata basis with respect to Loans of the same Tranche as the Loans held by such Lender. Notice to such Lender shall be given at least ten (10) days before the required date of transfer or prepayment (unless a shorter period is required by any Requirement of Law), as the case may be, and shall be accompanied by evidence demonstrating that such transfer or redemption is required pursuant to Gaming Laws. Upon receipt of a notice in accordance with the foregoing, the Replaced Lender shall cooperate with Borrower in effectuating the required transfer or prepayment within the time period set forth in such notice, not to be less than the minimum notice period set forth in the foregoing sentence (unless a shorter period is required under any Requirement of Law). Further, if the transfer or prepayment is triggered by notice from the Gaming Authority that the Lender is disqualified, commencing on the date the Gaming Authority provides the disqualification notice to Borrower, to the extent prohibited by law: (i) such Lender shall no longer receive any interest on the Loans; (ii) such Lender shall no longer exercise, directly or through any trustee or nominee, any right conferred by the Loans; and (iii) such Lender shall not receive any remuneration in any form from Borrower for services or otherwise in respect of the Loans. SECTION 2.12. [Reserved]. SECTION 2.13. Extensions of Loans and Commitments. (a) Borrower may, at any time request that all or a portion of the Term Loans of any Tranche (an “Existing Term Loan Tranche”) be modified to constitute another Tranche of Term Loans in order to extend the scheduled final maturity date thereof (any such Term Loans which have been so modified, “Extended Term Loans”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.13. In order to establish any Extended Term Loans, Borrower shall provide a notice to Administrative Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders of the applicable Existing Term Loan Tranche) (a “Term Loan Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Term Loans to be established, which terms shall be identical to those applicable to the Term Loans of the Existing Term Loan Tranche from which they are to be modified except (i) the scheduled final maturity date shall be extended to the date set forth in the applicable Extension Amendment and the amortization shall be as set forth in the Extension Amendment, (ii) (A) the Applicable Margins with respect to the Extended Term Loans may be higher or lower than the Applicable Margins for the Term Loans of such Existing Term Loan Tranche and/or (B) additional fees (including prepayment or termination premiums) may be payable to the Lenders providing such Extended Term Loans in addition to or in lieu of any increased Applicable Margins contemplated by the preceding clause (A), in each case, to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Amendment, (iii) any Extended Term Loans may participate on a pro rata basis or a less than pro rata basis (but not greater than a pro rata basis) in any optional or mandatory prepayments or prepayment of Term Loans hereunder in each case as specified in the respective Term Loan Extension Request, (iv) the final maturity date and the scheduled amortization applicable to the Extended Term Loans shall be set forth in the applicable Extension Amendment and the scheduled amortization of such Existing Term Loan Tranche shall be adjusted to reflect the amortization schedule (including the principal amounts payable pursuant thereto) in respect of the Term Loans under such Existing Term Loan Tranche that have been extended as Extended Term Loans as set forth in the applicable Extension Amendment; provided, however, that the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of such Extended Term Loans shall be no shorter than the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Term Loans of such Existing Term Loan Tranche and (v) the covenants set forth in Section 10.08 may be modified in a manner acceptable to Borrower, Administrative Agent and the Lenders party to the applicable Extension Amendment, such modifications to become effective only after the Final Maturity Date in effect immediately prior to giving effect to such Extension Amendment (it being understood that each Lender providing Extended Term Loans, by executing an Extension Amendment, agrees to be bound by such provisions and waives any inconsistent provisions set forth in Section 4.02, 4.07(b) or 13.04). Except as provided above, each Lender holding Extended Term Loans shall be entitled to all the benefits afforded by this Agreement (including, without limitation, the provisions set forth in Section 2.09(b) and 2.10(b) applicable to Term Loans) and the other Credit Documents, and shall, without limiting the foregoing, benefit equally and ratably from the Guarantees and security interests created by the Security Documents. The Credit Parties shall take any actions reasonably required by Administrative Agent to ensure and/or demonstrate that the Lien and security interests granted by the Security Documents continue to secure all the Obligations and continue to be perfected under the UCC or otherwise after giving effect to the extension of any Term Loans, including, without limitation, the procurement of title insurance endorsements reasonably requested by and satisfactory to the


 
-68- Administrative Agent. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Term Loans of any Existing Term Loan Tranche modified to constitute Extended Term Loans pursuant to any Term Loan Extension Request. Any Extended Term Loans of any Extension Tranche shall constitute a separate Tranche and Class of Term Loans from the Existing Term Loan Tranche from which they were modified. (b) Borrower may, at any time request that all or a portion of the Revolving Commitments of any Tranche (an “Existing Revolving Tranche” and any related Revolving Loans thereunder, “Existing Revolving Loans”) be modified to constitute another Tranche of Revolving Commitments in order to extend the termination date thereof (any such Revolving Commitments which have been so modified, “Extended Revolving Commitments” and any related Revolving Loans, “Extended Revolving Loans”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.13. In order to establish any Extended Revolving Commitments, Borrower shall provide a notice to Administrative Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders of the applicable Existing Revolving Tranche) (a “Revolving Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Revolving Commitments to be established, which terms shall be identical to those applicable to the Revolving Commitments of the Existing Revolving Tranche from which they are to be modified except (i) the scheduled termination date of the Extended Revolving Commitments and the related scheduled maturity date of the related Extended Revolving Loans shall be extended to the date set forth in the applicable Extension Amendment, (ii) (A) the Applicable Margins with respect to the Extended Revolving Loans may be higher or lower than the Applicable Margins for the Revolving Loans of such Existing Revolving Tranche and/or (B) additional fees may be payable to the Lenders providing such Extended Revolving Commitments in addition to or in lieu of any increased Applicable Margins contemplated by the preceding clause (A), in each case, to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Amendment, (iii) the Applicable Fee Percentage with respect to the Extended Revolving Commitments may be higher or lower than the Applicable Fee Percentage for the Revolving Commitments of such Existing Revolving Tranche and (iv) the covenants set forth in Section 10.08 may be modified in a manner acceptable to Borrower, Administrative Agent and the Lenders party to the applicable Extension Amendment, such modifications to become effective only after the Final Maturity Date in effect immediately prior to giving effect to such Extension Amendment (it being understood that each Lender providing Extended Revolving Commitments, by executing an Extension Amendment, agrees to be bound by such provisions and waives any inconsistent provisions set forth in Section 4.02, 4.07(b) or 13.04). Except as provided above, each Lender holding Extended Revolving Commitments shall be entitled to all the benefits afforded by this Agreement (including, without limitation, the provisions set forth in Sections 2.09(b) and 2.10(b) applicable to existing Revolving Loans) and the other Credit Documents, and shall, without limiting the foregoing, benefit equally and ratably from the Guarantees and security interests created by the Security Documents. The Credit Parties shall take any actions reasonably required by Administrative Agent to ensure and/or demonstrate that the Lien and security interests granted by the Security Documents continue to secure all the Obligations and continue to be perfected under the UCC or otherwise after giving effect to the extension of any Revolving Commitments, including, without limitation, the procurement of title insurance endorsements reasonably requested by and satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Revolving Commitments of any Existing Revolving Tranche modified to constitute Extended Revolving Commitments pursuant to any Revolving Extension Request. Any Extended Revolving Commitments of any Extension Tranche shall constitute a separate Tranche and Class of Revolving Commitments from the Existing Revolving Tranche from which they were modified. If, on any Extension Date, any Revolving Loans of any Extending Lender are outstanding under the applicable Existing Revolving Tranche, such Revolving Loans (and any related participations) shall be deemed to be allocated as Extended Revolving Loans (and related participations) and Existing Revolving Loans (and related participations) in the same proportion as such Extending Lender’s Extended Revolving Commitments bear to its remaining Revolving Commitments of the Existing Revolving Tranche. (c) Borrower shall provide the applicable Extension Request at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date on which Lenders under the Existing Tranche are requested to respond (or such shorter period as is agreed to by Administrative Agent in its sole discretion). Any Lender (an “Extending Lender”) wishing to have all or a portion of its Term Loans or Revolving Commitments of the Existing Tranche subject to such Extension Request modified to constitute Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable, shall notify Administrative Agent (an “Extension Election”) on or prior to the date specified in such Extension Request of the amount of its Term Loans or Revolving Commitments of the Existing Tranche that it has elected to modify to constitute Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable. In the event that the aggregate amount of Term Loans or Revolving Commitments of the Existing Tranche subject to Extension Elections


 
-69- exceeds the amount of Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable, requested pursuant to the Extension Request, Term Loans or Revolving Commitments subject to such Extension Elections shall be modified to constitute Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable, on a pro rata basis based on the amount of Term Loans or Revolving Commitments included in such Extension Elections. Borrower shall have the right to withdraw any Extension Request upon written notice to Administrative Agent in the event that the aggregate amount of Term Loans or Revolving Commitments of the Existing Tranche subject to such Extension Request is less than the amount of Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable, requested pursuant to such Extension Request. (d) Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable, shall be established pursuant to an amendment (an “Extension Amendment”) to this Agreement (which shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit P or Exhibit Q to this Agreement, as applicable, or, in each case, such other form as is reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent). Each Extension Amendment shall be executed by Borrower, Administrative Agent and the Extending Lenders (it being understood that such Extension Amendment shall not require the consent of any Lender other than (A) the Extending Lenders with respect to the Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable, established thereby and (B) with respect to any extension of the Revolving Commitments that results in an extension of an L/C Lender’s obligations with respect to Letters of Credit, the consent of such L/C Lender). An Extension Amendment may, subject to Sections 2.13(a) and (b), without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents as may be necessary or advisable, in the reasonable opinion of Administrative Agent and Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.13 (including, without limitation, (A) amendments to Section 2.04(b)(iii) and Section 2.09(b)(i) to permit reductions of Tranches of Revolving Commitments (and prepayments of the related Revolving Loans) with an R/C Maturity Date prior to the R/C Maturity Date applicable to a Tranche of Extended Revolving Commitments without a concurrent reduction of such Tranche of Extended Revolving Commitments and (B) such other technical amendments as may be necessary or advisable, in the reasonable opinion of Administrative Agent and Borrower, to give effect to the terms and provisions of any Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Commitments, as applicable). SECTION 2.14. Defaulting Lender Provisions. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if a Lender becomes, and during the period it remains, a Defaulting Lender, the following provisions shall apply: (i) the L/C Liabilities of such Defaulting Lender will, subject to the limitation in the first proviso below, automatically be reallocated (effective on the day such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender) among the Non-Defaulting Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective Revolving Commitments; provided that (i) the sum of each Non-Defaulting Lender’s total Revolving Exposure may not in any event exceed the Revolving Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender as in effect at the time of such reallocation, (ii) neither such reallocation nor any payment by a Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant thereto will constitute a waiver or release of any claim Borrower, Administrative Agent, any L/C Lender or any other Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender or cause such Defaulting Lender to be a Non- Defaulting Lender and (iii) no Event of Default shall exist and be continuing at the time of such reallocation (and, unless Borrower shall have otherwise notified the Administrative Agent at such time, Borrower shall be deemed to have represented and warranted that no Event of Default exists and is continuing at such time); (ii) to the extent that any portion (the “un-reallocated portion”) of the Defaulting Lender’s L/C Liabilities cannot be so reallocated, whether by reason of the first proviso in clause (a) above or otherwise, Borrower will, not later than three (3) Business Days after demand by Administrative Agent (at the direction of any L/C Lender), (i) Cash Collateralize the obligations of Borrower to the L/C Lender in respect of such L/C Liabilities, in an amount at least equal to the aggregate amount of the un-reallocated portion of such L/C Liabilities, or (ii) make other arrangements satisfactory to Administrative Agent, and to the applicable L/C Lender, as the case may be, in their sole discretion to protect them against the risk of non-payment by such Defaulting Lender;


 
-70- (iii) Borrower shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender under Section 2.05(a); and (iv) any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article 11 or otherwise) or received by Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 4.07 shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to any L/C Lender hereunder; third, if so determined by Administrative Agent or requested by the applicable L/C Lender, to be held as Cash Collateral for future funding obligations of that Defaulting Lender of any participation in any Letter of Credit; fourth, as Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by Administrative Agent; fifth, if so determined by Administrative Agent and Borrower, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released pro rata in order to satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement; sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders or the L/C Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender or any L/C Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or L/C Liabilities in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 7.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and L/C Liabilities owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or L/C Liabilities owed to, such Defaulting Lender. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post Cash Collateral pursuant to this Section 2.14(a)(iv) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto. (b) Cure. If Borrower, Administrative Agent, each L/C Lender agree in writing in their discretion that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any amounts then held in the segregated account referred to in Section 2.14(a)), (x) such Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par such portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders and/or make such other adjustments as Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Exposure and L/C Liabilities of the Lenders to be on a pro rata basis in accordance with their respective Commitments, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender and will be a Non-Defaulting Lender (and such exposure of each Lender will automatically be adjusted on a prospective basis to reflect the foregoing); provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of Borrower while such Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender, and (y) all Cash Collateral provided pursuant to Section 2.14(a)(ii) shall thereafter be promptly returned to Borrower. (c) Certain Fees. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, during such period as a Lender is a Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender will not be entitled to any fees accruing during such period pursuant to Section 2.05 or Section 2.03(h) (without prejudice to the rights of the Non-Defaulting Lenders in respect of such fees), provided that (i) to the extent that all or a portion of the L/C Liability of such Defaulting Lender is reallocated to the Non-Defaulting Lenders pursuant to Section 2.14, such fees that would have accrued for the benefit of such Defaulting Lender will instead accrue for the benefit of and be payable to such Non-Defaulting Lenders, pro rata in accordance with their respective Commitments, and (ii) to the extent that all or any portion of such L/C Liability


 
-71- cannot be so reallocated, such fees will instead accrue for the benefit of and be payable to the L/C Lender except to the extent of any un-reallocated portion that is Cash Collateralized (and the pro rata payment provisions of Section 4.02 will automatically be deemed adjusted to reflect the provisions of this Section 2.14(c)). SECTION 2.15. Refinancing Amendments. (a) At any time after the Closing Date, Borrower may obtain Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of all or any portion of the Term Loans and the Revolving Loans (or unused Revolving Commitments) then outstanding under this Agreement (which for purposes of this clause (a) will be deemed to include any then outstanding Other Term Loans or Other Revolving Loans), in the form of Other Term Loans, Other Term Loan Commitments, Other Revolving Loans or Other Revolving Commitments pursuant to a Refinancing Amendment; provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.15 or otherwise, (1) the borrowing and repayment (except for (A) payments of interest and fees at different rates on Other Revolving Commitments (and related outstanding), (B) repayments required upon the maturity date of the Other Revolving Commitments or any other Tranche of Revolving Commitments and (C) repayment made in connection with a permanent repayment and termination of commitments (subject to clause (2) below)) of Loans with respect to Other Revolving Commitments after the date of obtaining any Other Revolving Commitments shall be made on a pro rata basis with all other Revolving Commitments (subject to clauses (2) and (3) below), (2) the permanent repayment of Revolving Loans with respect to, and termination of, Other Revolving Commitments after the date of obtaining any Other Revolving Commitments shall be made on a pro rata basis with all other Revolving Commitments, except that Borrower shall be permitted to permanently repay and terminate commitments of any Class with an earlier maturity date on a better than a pro rata basis as compared to any other Class with a later maturity date than such Class and (3) assignments and participations of Other Revolving Commitments and Other Revolving Loans shall be governed by the same assignment and participation provisions applicable to other Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans. Each issuance of Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness under this Section 2.15(a) shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is (x) not less than $5.0 million and (y) an integral multiple of $1.0 million in excess thereof. (b) The effectiveness of any such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness shall subject to the consent required pursuant to Section 2.15(d), be subject solely to the satisfaction of the following conditions to the reasonable satisfaction of Administrative Agent: (i) any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of Revolving Commitments or Other Revolving Commitments will have a maturity date that is not prior to the maturity date of the Revolving Loans (or unused Revolving Commitments) being refinanced; (ii) any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of Term Loans will have a maturity date that is not prior to the maturity date of, and a Weighted Average Life to Maturity that is not shorter than the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of, the Term Loans being refinanced (determined without giving effect to the impact of prepayments on amortization of Term Loans being refinanced); (iii) the aggregate principal amount of any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness shall not exceed the principal amount so refinanced, plus, accrued interest, plus, any premium or other payment required to be paid in connection with such refinancing, plus, the amount of reasonable and customary fees and expenses of Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries incurred in connection with such refinancing, plus, any unutilized commitments thereunder; (iv) to the extent reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, receipt by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders of customary legal opinions and other documents; (v) to the extent reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, execution of amendments to the Mortgages by the applicable Credit Parties and Collateral Agent, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent; (vi) to the extent reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, delivery to the Administrative Agent of title insurance endorsements reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; and (vii) execution of a Refinancing Amendment by the Credit Parties, Administrative Agent and Lenders providing such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness. (c) The Loans and Commitments established pursuant to this Section 2.15 shall constitute Loans and Commitments under, and shall be entitled to all the benefits afforded by, this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, and shall, without limiting the foregoing, benefit equally and ratably from the Guarantees and security interests created by the Security Documents. The Credit Parties shall take any actions reasonably required by Administrative Agent to ensure and/or demonstrate that the Lien and security interests granted by the Security


 
-72- Documents continue to secure all the Obligations and continue to be perfected under the UCC or otherwise after giving effect to the applicable Refinancing Amendment. (d) Upon the effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment pursuant to this Section 2.15, any Person providing the corresponding Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness that was not a Lender hereunder immediately prior to such time shall, subject to consent of each L/C Lender in the case of Other Revolving Loans or Other Revolving Commitments, become a Lender hereunder. Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of such Refinancing Amendment, and (i) in the case any Other Revolving Commitments resulting from such Refinancing Amendment, the Total Revolving Commitments under, and for all purpose of this Agreement, shall be increased by the aggregate amount of such Other Revolving Commitments (net of any existing Revolving Commitments being refinanced by such Refinancing Amendment), (ii) any Other Revolving Loans resulting from such Refinancing Amendment shall be deemed to be additional Revolving Loans hereunder, (iii) any Other Term Loans resulting from such Refinancing Amendment shall be deemed to be Term Loans hereunder (to the extent funded) and (iv) any Other Term Loan Commitments resulting from such Refinancing Amendment shall be deemed to be Term Loan Commitments hereunder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Borrower, Collateral Agent and Administrative Agent may (and each of Collateral Agent and Administrative Agent are authorized by each other Secured Party to) execute such amendments and/or amendments and restatements of any Credit Documents as may be necessary or advisable to effectuate the provisions of this Section 2.15. Such amendments may include provisions allowing any Other Term Loans to be treated on the same basis as Term Facility Loans in connection with declining prepayments. (e) Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that, upon the effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment, this Agreement shall be deemed amended to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of the Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness incurred pursuant thereto (including any amendments necessary to treat the Loans and Commitments subject thereto as Other Term Loans, Other Term Loan Commitments, Other Revolving Loans and/or Other Revolving Commitments). Any Refinancing Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of Administrative Agent and Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.15. This Section 2.15 shall supersede any provisions in Section 4.02, 4.07(b) or 13.04 to the contrary. (f) To the extent the Revolving Commitments are being refinanced on the effective date of any Refinancing Amendment, then each of the Revolving Lenders having a Revolving Commitment prior to the effective date of such Refinancing Amendment (such Revolving Lenders the “Pre-Refinancing Revolving Lenders”) shall assign or transfer to any Revolving Lender which is acquiring an Other Revolving Commitment on the effective date of such amendment (the “Post-Refinancing Revolving Lenders”), and such Post-Refinancing Revolving Lenders shall purchase from each such Pre-Refinancing Revolving Lender, at the principal amount thereof, such interests in Revolving Loans and participation interests in L/C Liabilities (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, the related Revolving Commitments) outstanding on the effective date of such Refinancing Amendment as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such assignments or transfers and purchases, such Revolving Loans and participation interests in L/C Liabilities will be held by Pre-Refinancing Revolving Lenders and Post-Refinancing Revolving Lenders ratably in accordance with their Revolving Commitments and Other Revolving Commitments, as applicable, after giving effect to such Refinancing Amendment (and after giving effect to any Revolving Loans made on the effective date of such Refinancing Amendment). Such assignments or transfers and purchases shall be made pursuant to such procedures as may be designated by Administrative Agent and shall not be required to be effectuated in accordance with Section 13.05. For the avoidance of doubt, Revolving Loans and participation interests in L/C Liabilities assigned or transferred and purchased pursuant to this Section 2.15(f) shall, upon receipt thereof by the relevant Post-Increase Revolving Lenders, be deemed to be Other Revolving Loans and participation interests in L/C Liabilities in respect of the relevant Other Revolving Commitments acquired by such Post-Increase Revolving Lenders on the relevant amendment effective date and the terms of such Revolving Loans and participation interests (including, without limitation, the interest rate and maturity applicable thereto) shall be adjusted accordingly.


 
-73- SECTION 2.16. Cash Collateral. (a) Certain Credit Support Events. Without limiting any other requirements herein to provide Cash Collateral, if (i) any L/C Lender has honored any full or partial drawing request under any Letter of Credit and such drawing has resulted in an extension of credit hereunder which has not been refinanced as a Revolving Loan or reimbursed, in each case, in accordance with Section 2.03(d) or (ii) Borrower shall be required to provide Cash Collateral pursuant to Section 11.01, Borrower shall, within one (1) Business Day (in the case of clause (i) above) or immediately (in the case of clause (ii) above) following any request by the Administrative Agent or the applicable L/C Lender, provide Cash Collateral in an amount not less than the applicable Minimum Collateral Amount. (b) Grant of Security Interest. Borrower, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to (and subjects to the control of) the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the L/C Lenders and the Lenders, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein, and all other property so provided as Cash Collateral pursuant hereto, and in all proceeds of the foregoing, all as security for the obligations to which such Cash Collateral (including Cash Collateral provided in accordance with Sections 2.03, 2.10(d), 2.10(d), 2.14, 2.16 or 11.01) may be applied pursuant to Section 2.16(c). If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person prior to the right or claim of the Administrative Agent or the L/C Lenders as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the Minimum Collateral Amount, Borrower will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (after giving effect to any Cash Collateral provided by any Defaulting Lenders). All Cash Collateral (other than credit support not constituting funds subject to deposit) shall be maintained in blocked, non-interest bearing deposit accounts at the Administrative Agent or as otherwise agreed to by the Administrative Agent. Borrower shall pay on demand therefor from time to time all customary account opening, activity and other administrative fees and charges in connection with the maintenance and disbursement of Cash Collateral in accordance with the account agreement governing such deposit account. (c) Application. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under any of this Section 2.16 or Sections 2.03, 2.10(d), 2.10(d), 2.14 or 11.01 in respect of Letters of Credit shall be held and applied to the satisfaction of the specific L/C Liabilities, obligations to fund participations therein (including, as to Cash Collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) and other obligations for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein. (d) Release. Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce un-reallocated portions or to secure other obligations shall, so long as no Event of Default then exists, be released promptly following (i) the elimination of the applicable un-reallocated portion or other obligations giving rise thereto (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender (or, as appropriate, the assignment of such Defaulting Lender’s Loans and Commitments to a Replacement Lender)) or (ii) the determination by the Administrative Agent and the L/C Lenders that there exists excess Cash Collateral (which, in any event, shall exist at any time that the aggregate amount of Cash Collateral exceeds the Minimum Collateral Amount); provided, however, (x) any such release shall be without prejudice to, and any disbursement or other transfer of Cash Collateral shall be and remain subject to, any other Lien conferred under the Credit Documents and the other applicable provisions of the Credit Documents, and (y) Borrower and the L/C Issuer may agree that Cash Collateral shall not be released but instead held to support future anticipated un-reallocated portions or other obligations. ARTICLE III. PAYMENTS OF PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST SECTION 3.01. Repayment of Loans. (a) Revolving Loans. Borrower hereby promises to pay to Administrative Agent for the account of each applicable Revolving Lender on each R/C Maturity Date, the entire outstanding principal amount of such


 
-74- Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loans of the applicable Tranche, and each such Revolving Loan shall mature on the R/C Maturity Date applicable to such Tranche. (b) Term Facility Loans. Borrower hereby promises to pay to Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders with Term Facility Loans in repayment of the principal of the Term Facility Loans, on each date set forth on Annex B, that principal amount of Term Facility Loans, to the extent then outstanding, as is set forth opposite such date (subject to adjustment for any prepayments made under Section 2.09 or Section 2.10 or Section 2.11(b) or Section 13.04(b)(B) or as provided in Section 2.12, in Section 2.13 or in Section 2.15), and the remaining principal amount of Term Facility Loans on the Term Facility Maturity Date. (c) Extended Term Loans; Other Term Loans. Extended Term Loans shall mature in installments as specified in the applicable Extension Amendment pursuant to which such Extended Term Loans were established, subject, however, to Section 2.13(a). Other Term Loans shall mature in installments as specified in the applicable Refinancing Amendment pursuant to which such Other Term Loans were established, subject, however, to Section 2.15(a). SECTION 3.02. Interest. (a) Borrower hereby promises to pay to Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Loan made or maintained by such Lender to Borrower for the period from and including the date of such Loan to but excluding the date such Loan shall be paid in full at the following rates per annum: (i) during such periods as such Loan is an ABR Loan, the Alternate Base Rate (as in effect from time to time), plus the Applicable Margin applicable to such Loan, and (ii) during such periods as such Loan is a LIBOR Loan, for each Interest Period relating thereto, the LIBO Rate for such Loan for such Interest Period, plus the Applicable Margin applicable to such Loan. (b) To the extent permitted by Law, (i) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default (other than Events of Default under Sections 11.01(g) or 11.01(h)), overdue principal and overdue interest in respect of each Loan and all other Obligations not paid when due and (ii) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default under Section 11.01(g) or Section 11.01(h), all Obligations shall, in each case, automatically and without any action by any Person, bear interest at the Default Rate. Interest which accrues under this paragraph shall be payable on demand. (c) Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable (i) in the case of each ABR Loan, (x) quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Date, (y) on the date of any repayment or prepayment in full of all outstanding ABR Loans of any Tranche of Loans (but only on the principal amount so repaid or prepaid), and (z) at maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) and, after such maturity, on demand, and (ii) in the case of each LIBOR Loan, (x) on the last day of each Interest Period applicable thereto and, if such Interest Period is longer than three months, on each date occurring at three-month intervals after the first day of such Interest Period, (y) on the date of any repayment or prepayment thereof or the conversion of such Loan to a Loan of another Type (but only on the principal amount so paid, prepaid or converted) and (z) at maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) and, after such maturity, on demand. Promptly after the determination of any interest rate provided for herein or any change therein, Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Lenders to which such interest is payable and to Borrower. ARTICLE IV. PAYMENTS; PRO RATA TREATMENT; COMPUTATIONS; ETC. SECTION 4.01. Payments.


 
-75- (a) All payments of principal, interest, Reimbursement Obligations and other amounts to be made by Borrower under this Agreement and the Notes, and, except to the extent otherwise provided therein, all payments to be made by the Credit Parties under any other Credit Document, shall be made in Dollars, in immediately available funds, without deduction, set-off or counterclaim, to Administrative Agent at its account at the Principal Office, not later than 2:00 p.m., New York time, on the date on which such payment shall become due (each such payment made after such time on such due date may, at the discretion of Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been made on the next succeeding Business Day). Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. (b) Borrower shall, at the time of making each payment under this Agreement or any Note for the account of any Lender, specify (in accordance with Sections 2.09 and 2.10, if applicable) to Administrative Agent (which shall so notify the intended recipient(s) thereof) the Class and Type of Loans, Reimbursement Obligations or other amounts payable by Borrower hereunder to which such payment is to be applied. (c) Except to the extent otherwise provided in the third sentence of Section 2.03(h), each payment received by Administrative Agent or by any L/C Lender (directly or through Administrative Agent) under this Agreement or any Note for the account of any Lender shall be paid by Administrative Agent or by such L/C Lender (through Administrative Agent), as the case may be, to such Lender, in immediately available funds, (x) if the payment was actually received by Administrative Agent or by such L/C Lender (directly or through Administrative Agent), as the case may be, prior to 12:00 p.m. (Noon), New York time on any day, on such day and (y) if the payment was actually received by Administrative Agent or by such L/C Lender (directly or through Administrative Agent), as the case may be, after 12:00 p.m. (Noon), New York time, on any day, by 1:00 p.m., New York time, on the following Business Day (it being understood that to the extent that any such payment is not made in full by Administrative Agent or by such L/C Lender (through Administrative Agent), as the case may be, Administrative Agent or such Lender (through Administrative Agent), as applicable, shall pay to such Lender, upon demand, interest at the Federal Funds Rate from the date such amount was required to be paid to such Lender pursuant to the foregoing clauses until the date Administrative Agent or such L/C Lender (through Administrative Agent), as applicable, pays such Lender the full amount). (d) If the due date of any payment under this Agreement or any Note would otherwise fall on a day that is not a Business Day, such date shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and interest shall be payable for any principal so extended for the period of such extension at the rate then borne by such principal. SECTION 4.02. Pro Rata Treatment. Except to the extent otherwise provided herein: (a) each borrowing of Loans of a particular Class from the Lenders under Section 2.01 shall be made from the relevant Lenders, each payment of commitment fees under Section 2.05 in respect of Commitments of a particular Class shall be made for account of the relevant Lenders, and each termination or reduction of the amount of the Commitments of a particular Class under Section 2.04 shall be applied to the respective Commitments of such Class of the relevant Lenders pro rata according to the amounts of their respective Commitments of such Class; (b) except as otherwise provided in Section 5.04, LIBOR Loans of any Class having the same Interest Period shall be allocated pro rata among the relevant Lenders according to the amounts of their respective Revolving Commitments and Term Loan Commitments (in the case of the making of Loans) or their respective Revolving Loans and Term Loans (in the case of conversions and continuations of Loans); (c) except as otherwise provided in Section 2.09(b), Section 2.10(b), Section 2.12, Section 2.13, Section 2.14, Section 2.15, Section 13.04 or Section 13.05(d), each payment or prepayment of principal of any Class of Revolving Loans or of any particular Class of Term Loans shall be made for the account of the relevant Lenders pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid outstanding principal amounts of the Loans of such Class held by them; and (d) except as otherwise provided in Section 2.09(b), Section 2.10(b), Section 2.12, Section 2.13, Section 2.14, Section 2.15, Section 13.04 or Section 13.05(d), each payment of interest on Revolving Loans and Term Loans shall be made for account of the relevant Lenders pro rata in accordance with the amounts of interest on such Loans then due and payable to the respective Lenders. SECTION 4.03. Computations. Interest on LIBOR Loans, commitment fees and Letter of Credit fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and actual days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such amounts are payable and interest on ABR Loans and Reimbursement Obligations shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and


 
-76- actual days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such amounts are payable. SECTION 4.04. Minimum Amounts. Except for mandatory prepayments made pursuant to Section 2.10 and conversions or prepayments made pursuant to Section 5.04, and Borrowings made to pay Reimbursement Obligations, each Borrowing, conversion and partial prepayment of principal of Loans shall be in an amount at least equal to (a) in the case of Term Loans (x) with respect to Borrowings, $50.0 million and (y) with respect to conversions and partial repayments of principal, $5.0 million and, in each case, in multiples of $100,000 in excess thereof or, if less, the remaining Term Loans and (b) in the case of Revolving Loans, $2.5 million with respect to ABR Loans and $2.5 million with respect to LIBOR Loans and in multiples of $100,000 in excess thereof (borrowings, conversions or prepayments of or into Loans of different Types or, in the case of LIBOR Loans, having different Interest Periods at the same time hereunder to be deemed separate borrowings, conversions and prepayments for purposes of the foregoing, one for each Type or Interest Period) or, if less, the remaining Revolving Loans. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the aggregate principal amount of LIBOR Loans having the same Interest Period shall be in an amount at least equal to $1.0 million and in multiples of $100,000 in excess thereof and, if any LIBOR Loans or portions thereof would otherwise be in a lesser principal amount for any period, such Loans or portions, as the case may be, shall be ABR Loans during such period. SECTION 4.05. Certain Notices. Notices by Borrower to Administrative Agent of terminations or reductions of the Commitments, of Borrowings, conversions, continuations and optional prepayments of Loans and of Classes of Loans, of Types of Loans and of the duration of Interest Periods shall be irrevocable and shall be effective only if received by Administrative Agent by telephone not later than 1:00 p.m., New York time (promptly followed by written notice via facsimile or electronic mail), on at least the number of Business Days prior to the date of the relevant termination, reduction, Borrowing, conversion, continuation or prepayment or the first day of such Interest Period specified in the table below (unless otherwise agreed to by Administrative Agent in its sole discretion), provided that Borrower may make any such notice conditional upon the occurrence of a Person’s acquisition or sale or any incurrence of indebtedness or issuance of Equity Interests. NOTICE PERIODS Notice Number of Business Days Prior Termination or reduction of Commitments 3 Optional prepayment of, or conversions into, ABR Loans 1 Borrowing or optional prepayment of, conversions into, continuations as, or duration of Interest Periods for, LIBOR Loans 3 Borrowing of ABR Loans same day Each such notice of termination or reduction shall specify the amount and the Class of the Commitments to be terminated or reduced. Each such Notice of Borrowing, conversion, continuation or prepayment shall specify the Class of Loans to be borrowed, converted, continued or prepaid and the amount (subject to Section 4.04) and Type of each Loan to be borrowed, converted, continued or prepaid and the date of borrowing, conversion, continuation or prepayment (which shall be a Business Day). Each such notice of the duration of an Interest Period shall specify the Loans to which such Interest Period is to relate. Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Lenders of the contents of each such notice. In the event that Borrower fails to select the Type of Loan within the time period and otherwise as provided in this Section 4.05, such Loan (if outstanding as a LIBOR Loan) will be automatically converted into an ABR Loan on the last day of the then current Interest Period for such Loan or (if outstanding as an ABR Loan) will remain as, or (if not then outstanding) will be made as, an ABR Loan. In the event that Borrower has elected to borrow or convert Loans into LIBOR Loans but fails to select the duration of any Interest Period for any LIBOR Loans within the time period and otherwise as provided in this Section 4.05, such LIBOR Loan shall have an Interest Period of one month.


 
-77- SECTION 4.06. Non-Receipt of Funds by Administrative Agent. (a) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing of LIBOR Loans (or, in the case of any Borrowing of ABR Loans, prior to 12:00 noon on the date of such Borrowing) that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.02 (or, in the case of a Borrowing of ABR Loans, that such Lender has made such share available in accordance with and at the time required by Section 2.02) and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the Federal Funds Rate, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing, and (B) in the case of a payment to be made by Borrower, the interest rate applicable to ABR Loans. If Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to Borrower the amount of such interest paid by Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing to the Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent. (b) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or the L/C Lenders hereunder that Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders or the L/C Lenders, as the case may be, the amount due. In such event, if Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders or the L/C Lenders, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or L/C Lender, in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate. A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Lender or Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this subsection (b) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error. SECTION 4.07. Right of Setoff, Sharing of Payments; Etc. (a) If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Credit Party agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of setoff, banker’s lien or counterclaim a Lender may otherwise have, each Lender shall be entitled, at its option (to the fullest extent permitted by law), subject to obtaining the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any deposit (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), or other indebtedness, held by it for the credit or account of such Credit Party at any of its offices, in Dollars or in any other currency, against any principal of or interest on any of such Lender’s Loans, Reimbursement Obligations or any other amount payable to such Lender hereunder that is not paid when due (regardless of whether such deposit or other indebtedness is then due to such Credit Party), in which case it shall promptly notify such Credit Party thereof; provided, however, that such Lender’s failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof; and provided further that no such right of setoff, banker’s lien or counterclaim shall apply to any funds held for further distribution to any Governmental Authority. (b) Each of the Lenders agrees that, if it should receive (other than pursuant to Section 2.09(b), Section 2.10(b), Section 2.11, Section 2.12, Section 2.13, Section 2.15, Article V, Section 13.04 or Section 13.05(d) or as otherwise specifically provided herein or in the Fee Letter) any amount hereunder (whether by voluntary payment, by realization upon security, by the exercise of the right of setoff or banker’s lien, by counterclaim or cross action, by the enforcement of any right under the Credit Documents (including any guarantee), or otherwise) which is applicable to the payment of the principal of, or interest on, the Loans, Reimbursement Obligations or fees, the sum of which with respect to the related sum or sums received by other Lenders is in a greater proportion than the


 
-78- total of such amounts then owed and due to such Lender bears to the total of such amounts then owed and due to all of the Lenders immediately prior to such receipt, then such Lender receiving such excess payment shall purchase for cash without recourse or warranty from the other Lenders an interest in the Obligations of the respective Credit Party to such Lenders in such amount as shall result in a proportional participation by all of the Lenders in such amount; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess amount is thereafter recovered from such Lender, such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. Borrower consents to the foregoing arrangements. (c) Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing such participation may exercise all rights of setoff, banker’s lien, counterclaim or similar rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct holder of Loans or other amounts (as the case may be) owing to such Lender in the amount of such participation. (d) Nothing contained herein shall require any Lender to exercise any such right or shall affect the right of any Lender to exercise, and retain the benefits of exercising, any such right with respect to any other Indebtedness or obligation of any Credit Party. If, under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, any Lender receives a secured claim in lieu of a setoff to which this Section 4.07 applies, such Lender shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a manner consistent with the rights of the Lenders entitled under this Section 4.07 to share in the benefits of any recovery on such secured claim. (e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 4.07, in the event that any Defaulting Lender exercises any right of setoff, (i) all amounts so set off will be paid over immediately to Administrative Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.14 and, pending such payment, will be segregated by such Defaulting Lender from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of Administrative Agent, each L/C Lender and the Lenders and (ii) the Defaulting Lender will provide promptly to Administrative Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the Obligations owing to such Defaulting Lender as to which it exercised such right of setoff. ARTICLE V. YIELD PROTECTION, ETC. SECTION 5.01. Additional Costs. (a) If any Change in Law shall: (i) subject any Lender or L/C Lender to any Taxes with respect to this Agreement, any Note, any Letter of Credit or any Lender’s participation therein, any L/C Document or any Loan made by it (except for (1) any reserve requirement reflected in the LIBO Rate, (2) Covered Taxes and (3) Excluded Taxes); (ii) impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets held by, deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances, loans or other extensions of credit by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender or L/C Lender, in each case, that is not otherwise included in the determination of the LIBO Rate hereunder; or (iii) impose on any Lender or L/C Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or LIBOR Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein; and the result of any of the foregoing is to materially increase the cost to such Lender or L/C Lender of making, converting into, continuing or maintaining LIBOR Loans (or of maintaining its obligation to make any LIBOR Loans) or issuing, maintaining or participating in Letters of Credit (or maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit), then, in any such case, Borrower shall, within 10 days of written demand therefor, pay


 
-79- such Lender or L/C Lender any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or L/C Lender for such increased cost. If any Lender or L/C Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this subsection, it shall promptly notify Borrower, through Administrative Agent, of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled. (b) A certificate as to any additional amounts setting forth the calculation of such additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5.01 submitted by such Lender or L/C Lender, through Administrative Agent, to Borrower shall be conclusive in the absence of clearly demonstrable error. Without limiting the survival of any other covenant hereunder, this Section 5.01 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Notes and all other Obligations payable hereunder. (c) In the event that any Lender shall have determined that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or any Lending Office of such Lender or the Lender’s holding company with regard to capital or liquidity requirements, does or shall have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such holding company’s capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder, the Commitments of such Lender, the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such L/C Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or such holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time, after submission by such Lender or Borrower (with a copy to Administrative Agent) of a written request therefor (setting forth in reasonable detail the amount payable to the affected Lender and the basis for such request), Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such reduction. (d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 5.01 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided, however, that Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section 5.01 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than ninety (90) days prior to the date that such Lender notifies Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs incurred or reductions suffered and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided, further, that if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 90-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof. SECTION 5.02. Inability To Determine Interest Rate. If prior to the first day of any Interest Period: (a) Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon Borrower) that, by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBO Base Rate for such Interest Period or (b) Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Required Lenders that Dollar deposits are not available in the relevant amount and for the relevant Interest Period available to the Required Lenders in the London interbank market or (c) the Required Lenders determine that the LIBO Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such LIBOR Loans (in each case, “Impacted Loans”), Administrative Agent shall give electronic mail or telephonic notice thereof to Borrower and the Lenders as soon as practicable thereof. If such notice is given, (x) any LIBOR Loans requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period shall be made as ABR Loans, (y) any Loans that were to have been converted on the first day of such Interest Period to LIBOR Loans shall be converted to, or continued as, ABR Loans and (z) any outstanding LIBOR Loans shall be converted, on the first day of such Interest Period, to ABR Loans. Until such notice has been withdrawn by Administrative Agent (which the Administrative Agent agrees to do if the circumstances giving rise to such notice cease to exist), no further LIBOR Loans shall be made, or continued as such, nor shall Borrower have the right to convert Loans to, LIBOR Loans. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there are Impacted Loans as provided above, the Administrative Agent, in consultation with Borrower and the affected Lenders, may establish an alternative interest rate for the Impacted Loans, in which case, such alternative rate of interest shall apply with respect to the Impacted Loans (to the extent Borrower does not elect to maintain such Impacted Loans as ABR Loans) until (1) the Administrative Agent revokes the notice delivered with respect to the Impacted Loans (which the Administrative Agent agrees to do if the circumstances giving rise to Impacted Loans cease to exist), (2) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders


 
-80- notify the Administrative Agent and Borrower that such alternative interest rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding the Impacted Loans, or (3) any Lender determines that any Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to such alternative rate of interest or to determine or charge interest rates based upon such rate or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to do any of the foregoing and provides the Administrative Agent and Borrower written notice thereof. SECTION 5.03. Illegality. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, in the event that any change after the date hereof in any Requirement of Law or in the interpretation or application thereof shall make it unlawful for any Lender or its Applicable Lending Office to honor its obligation to make or maintain LIBOR Loans or issue Letters of Credit hereunder (and, in the sole opinion of such Lender, the designation of a different Applicable Lending Office would either not avoid such unlawfulness or would be disadvantageous to such Lender), then such Lender shall promptly notify Borrower thereof (with a copy to Administrative Agent) and such Lender’s obligation to make or continue, or to convert Loans of any other Type into, LIBOR Loans or issue Letters of Credit shall be suspended until such time as such Lender or L/C Lender may again make and maintain LIBOR Loans or issue Letters of Credit (in which case the provisions of Section 5.04 shall be applicable). SECTION 5.04. Treatment of Affected Loans. If the obligation of any Lender to make LIBOR Loans or to continue, or to convert ABR Loans into, LIBOR Loans shall be suspended pursuant to Section 5.03, such Lender’s LIBOR Loans shall be automatically converted into ABR Loans on the last day(s) of the then current Interest Period(s) for such LIBOR Loans (or on such earlier date as such Lender may specify to Borrower with a copy to Administrative Agent as is required by law) and, unless and until such Lender gives notice as provided below that the circumstances specified in Section 5.03 which gave rise to such conversion no longer exist: (i) to the extent that such Lender’s LIBOR Loans have been so converted, all payments and prepayments of principal which would otherwise be applied to such Lender’s LIBOR Loans shall be applied instead to its ABR Loans; and (ii) all Loans which would otherwise be made or continued by such Lender as LIBOR Loans shall be made or continued instead as ABR Loans and all ABR Loans of such Lender which would otherwise be converted into LIBOR Loans shall remain as ABR Loans. If such Lender gives notice to Borrower with a copy to Administrative Agent that the circumstances specified in Section 5.03 which gave rise to the conversion of such Lender’s LIBOR Loans pursuant to this Section 5.04 no longer exist (which such Lender agrees to do promptly upon such circumstances ceasing to exist) at a time when LIBOR Loans are outstanding, such Lender’s ABR Loans shall be automatically converted, on the first day(s) of the next succeeding Interest Period(s) for such outstanding LIBOR Loans, to the extent necessary so that, after giving effect thereto, all Loans held by the Lenders holding LIBOR Loans and by such Lender are held pro rata (as to principal amounts, Types and Interest Periods) in accordance with their respective Commitments. SECTION 5.05. Compensation. (a) Borrower agrees to indemnify each Lender and to hold each Lender harmless from any loss or expense (excluding any loss of profits or margin) which such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of (1) default by Borrower in payment when due of the principal amount of or interest on any LIBOR Loan, (2) default by Borrower in making a borrowing of, conversion into or continuation of LIBOR Loans after Borrower has given a notice requesting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (3) Borrower making any prepayment other than on the date specified in the relevant prepayment notice, or (4) the conversion or the making of a payment or a prepayment (including any repayments or prepayments made pursuant to Sections 2.09 or 2.10 or as a result of an acceleration of Loans pursuant to Section 11.01 or as a result of the replacement of a Lender pursuant to Section 2.11 or 13.04(b)) of LIBOR Loans on a day which is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto, including in each case, any such loss (excluding any loss of profits or margin) or expense arising from the reemployment of funds obtained by it or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained.


 
-81- (b) For the purpose of calculation of all amounts payable to a Lender under this Section 5.05 each Lender shall be deemed to have actually funded its relevant LIBOR Loan through the purchase of a deposit bearing interest at the LIBO Base Rate in an amount equal to the amount of the LIBOR Loan and having a maturity comparable to the relevant Interest Period; provided, however, that each Lender may fund each of its LIBOR Loans in any manner it sees fit, and the foregoing assumption shall be utilized only for the calculation of amounts payable under this subsection. Any Lender requesting compensation pursuant to this Section 5.05 will furnish to Administrative Agent and Borrower a certificate setting forth the basis and amount of such request and such certificate, absent manifest error, shall be conclusive. Without limiting the survival of any other covenant hereunder, this covenant shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Obligations and all other amounts payable hereunder. SECTION 5.06. Net Payments. (a) Except as provided in this Section 5.06(a), all payments made by or on account of any obligation of any Credit Party hereunder or under any Note, Guarantee or other Credit Document will be made without setoff, counterclaim or other defense. Except as required by law, all such payments will be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, any Taxes (including Taxes imposed or asserted on amounts payable under this Section 5.06). If, however, applicable laws require any withholding agent to withhold or deduct any Tax, such Tax shall be withheld or deducted in accordance with such laws as reasonably determined by such withholding agent. The applicable withholding agent shall timely pay the amount of any Taxes deducted or withheld in respect of a payment made by a Credit Party hereunder or under any note, Guarantee or other Credit Document to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law. If any Credit Party is the applicable withholding agent, Borrower shall furnish to Administrative Agent within 45 days after the date the payment of any Taxes is due pursuant to applicable law documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent evidencing such payment by the applicable Credit Party. If any Covered Taxes are so deducted or withheld by any applicable withholding agent, then the applicable Credit Party agrees to increase the sum payable by such Credit Party so that, after such deduction or withholding (including such deduction or withholding on account of Covered Taxes applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5.06) the amount received by each Lender or, in the case of payments made to the Administrative Agent for its own account, the Administrative Agent, will not be less than the amount such recipient would have received had no such withholding or deduction been made. The Credit Parties agree to jointly and severally indemnify and hold harmless the Administrative Agent and each Lender, and reimburse any of them upon written request, for the amount of any Covered Taxes that are levied or imposed and paid by such indemnitee (including Covered Taxes imposed or asserted on amounts payable under this Section 5.06) and for any reasonable expenses arising therefrom in each case, whether or not such Covered Taxes were correctly or legally imposed, other than any interest or penalties that are determined by a final and nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the indemnitee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Such written request shall include a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis of such request and such certificate, absent manifest error, shall be conclusive. (b) (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to any payments made under any Credit Document shall deliver to Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation reasonably requested by Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 5.06(b)(ii), (c), and (d) below) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.06(b), no Lender shall be required to provide any documentation that such Lender is not legally eligible to deliver.


 
-82- (ii) any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower or the Administrative Agent), two executed original copies of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding. Any Foreign Lender shall deliver to Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower or the Administrative Agent), two executed original copies of whichever of the following is applicable: (1) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to an applicable income tax treaty; (2) IRS Form W-8ECI; (3) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit D-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and that no interest payments in connection with any Credit Documents are effectively connected with such Foreign Lender’s conduct of a U.S. trade or business and (y) IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or (4) to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner (for example, where the Foreign Lender is a partnership or participating Lender), IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit D-2 or Exhibit D-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and not a participating Lender and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit D-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner. Any Foreign Lender shall deliver to Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower or the Administrative Agent), two executed original copies of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made. Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal ineligibility to do so. (c) On the Closing Date, the Administrative Agent shall provide Borrower with two executed original copies of IRS Form W-8IMY (or any applicable successor forms) properly completed and duly executed to treat the Administrative Agent as a U.S. person (as described in U.S. Treasury Regulations Section 1.1441-1T(e)(3)(v). (d) If a payment made to a Lender under any Credit Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to Borrower and Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by Borrower or Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Borrower or Administrative Agent as may be necessary for Borrower and Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA, to determine whether such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount, if any, to deduct and withhold from such payment. (e) In addition, Borrower agrees to timely pay any present or future stamp, documentary, recording, intangible, filing or similar Taxes which arise from any payment made hereunder or under any other Credit Document or from the execution, delivery, filing, performance, enforcement, recordation or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, any Credit Document, except any such Taxes that are imposed with respect to an assignment (other than an assignment made pursuant to Section 2.11(a) at the request of Borrower) if such Tax is imposed as a result of a present or former connection of the transferor or transferee with the jurisdiction imposing such Tax (other than connections arising from having executed, delivered, become a party to, performed its


 
-83- obligations under, received payments under, received or perfected a security interest under, engaged in any other transaction pursuant to or enforced any Credit Document) (hereinafter referred to as “Other Taxes”). (f) Any Lender claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 5.06 agrees to use (at the Credit Parties’ expense) reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Applicable Lending Office if the making of such change would avoid the need for, or in the opinion of such Lender, materially reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the sole judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender. (g) If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 5.06 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5.06), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person. ARTICLE VI. GUARANTEES SECTION 6.01. The Guarantees. Each (a) Guarantor, jointly and severally with each other Guarantor, hereby guarantees as primary obligor and not as surety to each Secured Party and its successors and assigns the prompt payment and performance in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration, demand or otherwise) of the principal of and interest (including any interest, fees, costs or charges that would accrue but for the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code after any bankruptcy or insolvency petition under the Bankruptcy Code) on the Loans made by the Lenders to, and the Notes held by each Lender of, Borrower, and (b) Credit Party, jointly and severally with each other Credit Party, hereby guarantees as primary obligor and not as surety to each Secured Party and its successors and assigns the prompt payment and performance in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of the principal of and interest (including any interest, fees, costs or charges that would accrue but for the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code after any bankruptcy or insolvency petition under the Bankruptcy Code) of all other Obligations from time to time owing to the Secured Parties by any other Credit Party under any Credit Document, any Swap Contract entered into with a Swap Provider or any Cash Management Agreement entered into with a Cash Management Bank, in each case now or hereinafter created, incurred or made, whether absolute or contingent, liquidated or unliquidated and strictly in accordance with the terms thereof; provided, that (i) the obligations guaranteed shall exclude obligations under any Swap Contract or Cash Management Agreements with respect to which the applicable Swap Provider or Cash Management Bank, as applicable, provides notice to Borrower that it does not want such Swap Contract or Cash Management Agreement, as applicable, to be secured, and (ii) as to each Guarantor the obligations guaranteed by such Guarantor hereunder shall not include any Excluded Swap Obligations in respect of such Guarantor (such obligations being guaranteed pursuant to clauses (a) and (b) above being herein collectively called the “Guaranteed Obligations” (it being understood that the Guaranteed Obligations of Borrower shall be limited to those referred to in clause (b) above)). Each Credit Party, jointly and severally with each other Credit Party, hereby agrees that if any other Credit Party shall fail to pay in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) any of the Guaranteed


 
-84- Obligations, such Credit Party will promptly pay the same, without any demand or notice whatsoever, and that in the case of any extension of time of payment or renewal of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the same will be promptly paid in full when due (whether at extended maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) in accordance with the terms of such extension or renewal. SECTION 6.02. Obligations Unconditional. The obligations of the Credit Parties under Section 6.01 shall constitute a guaranty of payment (and not of collection) and are absolute, irrevocable and unconditional, joint and several, irrespective of the value, genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations under this Agreement, the Notes or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein, or any substitution, release or exchange of any other guarantee of or security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, irrespective of any other circumstance whatsoever that might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor (except for payment in full). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of any of the Credit Parties with respect to its respective guaranty of the Guaranteed Obligations which shall remain absolute, irrevocable and unconditional under any and all circumstances as described above: (i) at any time or from time to time, without notice to the Credit Parties, the time for any performance of or compliance with any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be extended, or such performance or compliance shall be waived; (ii) the maturity of any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be accelerated, or any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be amended in any respect, or any right under the Credit Documents or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein shall be amended or waived in any respect or any other guarantee of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any security therefor shall be released or exchanged in whole or in part or otherwise dealt with; (iii) the release of any other Credit Party pursuant to Section 6.08; (iv) any renewal, extension or acceleration of, or any increase in the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any amendment, supplement, modification or waiver of, or any consent to departure from, the Credit Documents; (v) any failure or omission to assert or enforce or agreement or election not to assert or enforce, delay in enforcement, or the stay or enjoining, by order of court, by operation of law or otherwise, of the exercise or enforcement of, any claim or demand or any right, power or remedy (whether arising under any Credit Documents, at law, in equity or otherwise) with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations or any agreement relating thereto, or with respect to any other guaranty of or security for the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations; (vi) any settlement, compromise, release, or discharge of, or acceptance or refusal of any offer of payment or performance with respect to, or any substitutions for, the Guaranteed Obligations or any subordination of the Guaranteed Obligations to any other obligations; (vii) the validity, perfection, non-perfection or lapse in perfection, priority or avoidance of any security interest or lien, the release of any or all collateral securing, or purporting to secure, the Guaranteed Obligations or any other impairment of such collateral; (viii) any exercise of remedies with respect to any security for the Guaranteed Obligations (including, without limitation, any collateral, including the Collateral securing or purporting to secure any of the Guaranteed Obligations) at such time and in such order and in such manner as the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties may decide and whether or not every aspect thereof is commercially reasonable and whether or not such action constitutes an election of remedies and even if such action operates to impair or extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy that any Credit Party would otherwise have; or


 
-85- (ix) any other circumstance whatsoever which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of any Credit Party as a guarantor in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations or which constitutes, or might be construed to constitute, an equitable or legal discharge of any Credit Party as a guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations, or of such Credit Party under the guarantee contained in this Article 6 or of any security interest granted by any Credit Party in its capacity as a guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether in a proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code or under any other federal, state or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, or similar law, or in any other instance. The Credit Parties hereby expressly waive diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest, marshaling and all notices whatsoever, and any requirement that any Secured Party thereof exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against any Credit Party under this Agreement or the Notes or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein, or against any other Person under any other guarantee of, or security for, any of the Guaranteed Obligations. The Credit Parties waive any and all notice of the creation, renewal, extension, waiver, termination or accrual of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and notice of or proof of reliance by any Secured Party thereof upon this guarantee or acceptance of this guarantee, and the Guaranteed Obligations, and any of them, shall conclusively be deemed to have been created, contracted or incurred in reliance upon this guarantee, and all dealings between the Credit Parties and the Secured Parties shall likewise be conclusively presumed to have been had or consummated in reliance upon this guarantee. This guarantee shall be construed as a continuing, absolute, irrevocable and unconditional guarantee of payment and performance without regard to any right of offset with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations at any time or from time to time held by the Secured Parties, and the obligations and liabilities of the Credit Parties hereunder shall not be conditioned or contingent upon the pursuit by the Secured Parties or any other Person at any time of any right or remedy against any Credit Party or against any other Person which may be or become liable in respect of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations or against any collateral security or guarantee therefor or right of offset with respect thereto. This guarantee shall remain in full force and effect and be binding in accordance with and to the extent of its terms upon the Credit Parties and the successors and assigns thereof, and shall inure to the benefit of the Secured Parties, and their respective successors and assigns, notwithstanding that from time to time during the term of this Agreement there may be no Guaranteed Obligations outstanding. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 6.02 shall permit amendments to the Credit Documents or an acceleration of the Obligations other than as set forth in the Credit Documents. SECTION 6.03. Reinstatement. The obligations of the Credit Parties under this Article VI shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of any Credit Party in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations is rescinded or must be otherwise restored by any holder of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise. The Credit Parties jointly and severally agree that they will indemnify each Secured Party on demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable fees of counsel) incurred by such Secured Party in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such costs and expenses incurred in defending against any claim alleging that such payment constituted a preference, fraudulent transfer or similar payment under any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law, other than any costs or expenses resulting from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of, or material breach by, such Secured Party. SECTION 6.04. Subrogation; Subordination. Each Credit Party hereby agrees that until the payment and satisfaction in full in cash of all Guaranteed Obligations and the expiration and termination of the Commitments of the Lenders under this Agreement it shall not exercise any right or remedy arising by reason of any performance by it of its guarantee in Section 6.01, whether by subrogation, contribution or otherwise, against any Credit Party of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations. The payment of any amounts due with respect to any indebtedness of any Credit Party now or hereafter owing to any Credit Party by reason of any payment by such Credit Party under the Guarantee in this Article VI is hereby subordinated to the prior payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Credit Party agrees that it will not demand, sue for or otherwise attempt to collect any such indebtedness of any other Credit Party to such Credit Party until the Obligations shall have been paid in full in cash. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and any amounts are paid to the Credit Parties in violation of the foregoing limitation, such amounts shall be collected, enforced and received by such Credit Party as trustee for


 
-86- the Secured Parties and be paid over to Administrative Agent on account of the Guaranteed Obligations without affecting in any manner the liability of such Credit Party under the other provisions of the guaranty contained herein. SECTION 6.05. Remedies. The Credit Parties jointly and severally agree that, as between the Credit Parties and the Lenders, the obligations of any Credit Party under this Agreement and the Notes may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided in Article XI (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable in the circumstances provided in said Article XI) for purposes of Section 6.01, notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such declaration (or such obligations from becoming automatically due and payable arising under the Bankruptcy Code or any other federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or other law providing for protection from creditors) as against such other Credit Parties and that, in the event of such declaration (or such obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such obligations (whether or not due and payable by Borrower) shall forthwith become due and payable by the other Credit Parties for purposes of Section 6.01. SECTION 6.06. Continuing Guarantee. The guarantee in this Article VI is a continuing guarantee of payment, and shall apply to all Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising. SECTION 6.07. General Limitation on Guarantee Obligations. In any action or proceeding involving any state corporate law, or any state, federal or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other law affecting the rights of creditors generally, if the obligations of any Credit Party under Section 6.01 would otherwise be held or determined to be void, voidable, invalid or unenforceable, or subordinated to the claims of any other creditors, on account of the amount of its liability under Section 6.01, then, notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, the amount of such liability shall, without any further action by such Credit Party, any Secured Party or any other Person, be automatically limited and reduced to the highest amount that is valid and enforceable and not subordinated to the claims of other creditors as determined in such action or proceeding. SECTION 6.08. Release of Guarantors. If, in compliance with the terms and provisions of the Credit Documents, (i) the Equity Interests of any Guarantor are directly or indirectly sold or otherwise transferred such that such Guarantor no longer constitutes a Restricted Subsidiary (a “Transferred Guarantor”) to a Person or Persons, none of which is Borrower or a Restricted Subsidiary, or (ii) any Restricted Subsidiary is designated as or becomes an Unrestricted Subsidiary, Transferred Guarantor, upon the consummation of such sale or transfer, and such Person so designated or which becomes such an Unrestricted Subsidiary, shall be automatically released from its obligations under this Agreement (including under Section 13.03 hereof) and the other Credit Documents, and its obligations to pledge and grant any Collateral owned by it pursuant to any Security Document, and the pledge of Equity Interests in any Transferred Guarantor or any Unrestricted Subsidiary to Collateral Agent pursuant to the Security Documents shall be automatically released, and, so long as Borrower shall have provided the Agents such certifications or documents as any Agent shall reasonably request, Collateral Agent shall take such actions as are necessary to effect and evidence each release described in this Section 6.08 in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Security Documents and this Agreement. SECTION 6.09. Keepwell. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor hereby jointly and severally absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably undertakes to provide such funds or other support as may be needed from time to time by each other Credit Party to honor all of its obligations under the Guarantee in respect of Swap Obligations (provided, however, that each Qualified ECP Guarantor shall only be liable under this Section 6.09 for the maximum amount of such liability that can be hereby incurred without rendering its obligations under this Section 6.09, or otherwise under the Guarantee, as it relates to such Credit Party, voidable under applicable law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer, and not for any greater amount). The obligations of each Qualified ECP Guarantor under this Section shall remain in full force and effect until a discharge of Guaranteed Obligations. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor intends that this Section 6.09 constitute, and this Section 6.09 shall be deemed to constitute, a "keepwell, support, or other agreement" for the benefit of each other Credit Party for all purposes of Section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act. SECTION 6.10. Right of Contribution. Each Credit Party hereby agrees that to the extent that a Credit Party (a “Funding Credit Party”) shall have paid more than its Fair Share (as defined below) of any payment made hereunder, such Credit Party shall be entitled to seek and receive contribution from and against any


 
-87- other Credit Party hereunder which has not paid its Fair Share of such payment. Each Credit Party’s right of contribution shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Section 6.04. The provisions of this Section 6.10 shall in no respect limit the obligations and liabilities of any Credit Party to the Secured Parties, and each Credit Party shall remain liable to the Secured Parties for the full amount guaranteed by such Credit Party hereunder. “Fair Share” means, with respect to a Credit Party as of any date of determination, an amount equal to (i) the ratio of (A) the Adjusted Maximum Amount (as defined below) with respect to such Credit Party to (B) the aggregate of the Adjusted Maximum Amounts with respect to all Credit Parties multiplied by (ii) the aggregate amount paid or distributed on or before such date by all Funding Credit Parties under this Article VI in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations. “Fair Share Shortfall” means, with respect to a Credit Party as of any date of determination, the excess, if any, of the Fair Share of such Credit Party over the Aggregate Payments of such Credit Party. “Adjusted Maximum Amount” means, with respect to a Credit Party as of any date of determination, the maximum aggregate amount of the obligations of such Credit Party under this Article VI; provided that, solely for purposes of calculating the “Adjusted Maximum Amount” with respect to any Credit Party for purposes of this Section 6.10, any assets or liabilities of such Credit Party arising by virtue of any rights to subrogation, reimbursement or indemnification or any rights to or obligations of contribution hereunder shall not be considered as assets or liabilities of such Credit Party. “Aggregate Payments” means, with respect to a Credit Party as of any date of determination, an amount equal to (i) the aggregate amount of all payments and distributions made on or before such date by such Credit party in respect of this Article VI (including in respect of this Section 6.10) minus (ii) the aggregate amount of all payments received on or before such date by such Credit Party from the other Credit Parties as contributions under this Section 6.10. The amounts payable as contributions hereunder shall be determined as of the date on which the related payment or distribution is made by the applicable Funding Credit Party. ARTICLE VII.

Borrower hereby agrees that it will use commercially reasonable efforts to identify that portion of Borrower Materials that may be distributed to the Public Lenders and that (w) all such Borrower Materials shall be clearly and conspicuously marked “PUBLIC” which, at a minimum, shall mean that the word “PUBLIC” shall appear prominently on the first page thereof; (x) by marking Borrower Materials “PUBLIC,” Borrower shall be deemed to have authorized Administrative Agent, the L/C Lenders and the Lenders to treat such Borrower Materials as not containing any material non-public information (although it may be sensitive and proprietary) with respect to Borrower or its securities for purposes of United States Federal and state securities laws (provided however, that to the extent such Borrower Materials constitute information of the type subject to Section 13.10, they shall be treated as set forth in Section 13.10); (y) all Borrower Materials marked “PUBLIC” are permitted to be made available through a portion of the Platform designated “Public Side Information;” and (z) Administrative Agent shall be entitled to treat any Borrower Materials that are not marked “PUBLIC” as being suitable only for posting on a portion of the Platform not designated “Public Side Information.” SECTION 9.05.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no Company will be required to disclose, permit the inspection, examination or making of extracts, or discussion of, any document, information or other matter that (i) in respect of which disclosure to Administrative Agent (or its designated representative) is then prohibited by law or contract or (ii) is subject to attorney-client or similar privilege or constitutes attorney work product. SECTION 9.06. Use of Proceeds; FCPA. Borrower shall use the proceeds of the Loans only for the purposes set forth in Section 8.11.

SECTION 9.12. Limitation on Designations of Unrestricted Subsidiaries. (a) Borrower may, on or after the earlier of the Wynn Las Vegas Reorganization and the Wynn Massachusetts Project Opening Date, designate any Subsidiary of Borrower (other than a Subsidiary of Borrower which owns one or more Principal Assets) as an “Unrestricted Subsidiary” under this Agreement (a “Designation”) only if: (i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of or immediately after giving effect to such Designation; (ii) Borrower would be permitted under this Agreement to make an Investment at the time of Designation (assuming the effectiveness of such Designation) in an amount (the “Designation Amount”) equal to the sum of (A) the fair market value of the Equity Interest of such Subsidiary owned by Borrower and/or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries on such date and (B) the aggregate amount of Indebtedness of such Subsidiary owed to Borrower and the Restricted Subsidiaries on such date; and (iii) after giving effect to such Designation, (x) prior to the Initial Test Date, the Consolidated Senior Secured Net Leverage Ratio calculated on a Pro Forma Basis shall not exceed 2.50 to 1.00 as of the most recent Calculation Date and (y) from and after the Initial Test Date, Borrower shall be in compliance on a Pro Forma Basis with the Financial Maintenance Covenant (whether or not then in effect) as of the most recent Calculation Date. Upon any such Designation, Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries shall be deemed to have made an Investment in such Unrestricted Subsidiary in an amount equal to the Designation Amount. (b) Borrower may revoke any Designation of a Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary (a “Revocation”), whereupon such Subsidiary shall then constitute a Restricted Subsidiary, if: (i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time and immediately after giving effect to such Revocation; (ii) after giving effect to such Revocation, (x) prior to the Initial Test Date, the Consolidated Senior Secured Net Leverage Ratio calculated on a Pro Forma Basis shall not exceed 2.50 to 1.00 as of the most recent Calculation Date and (y) from and after the Initial Test Date, Borrower shall be in compliance on a Pro Forma Basis with the Financial Maintenance Covenant (whether or not then in effect) as of the most recent Calculation Date; and (iii) all Liens and Indebtedness of such Unrestricted Subsidiary and its Subsidiaries outstanding immediately following such Revocation would, if incurred at the time of such Revocation, have been permitted to be incurred for all purposes of this Agreement. (c) All Designations and Revocations occurring after the Closing Date must be evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate of Borrower delivered to Administrative Agent with the Responsible Officer so executing such certificate certifying compliance with the foregoing provisions of Section 9.12(a) (in the case of any such Designations) and of Section 9.12(b) (in the case of any such Revocations).


 
-105- (d) If Borrower designates a Guarantor as an Unrestricted Subsidiary in accordance with this Section 9.12, the Obligations of such Guarantor under the Credit Documents shall terminate and be of no further force and effect and all Liens granted by such Guarantor under the applicable Security Documents shall terminate and be released and be of no further force and effect, and all Liens on the Equity Interests and debt obligations of such Guarantor shall be terminated and released and of no further force and effect, in each case, without any action required by Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent.

Any such foregoing actions taken by Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent shall be at the sole cost and expense of Borrower. SECTION 9.13. Limitation on Designation of Immaterial Subsidiaries. (a) If for any reason the aggregate fair market value of the assets of all the Immaterial Subsidiaries exceeds the Immaterial Subsidiary Threshold Amount, then, promptly after the occurrence of such event that causes the aggregate fair market value of all Immaterial Subsidiaries to exceed the Immaterial Subsidiary Threshold Amount, Borrower shall designate (an “Excluded Designation”) one or more Immaterial Subsidiaries as no longer constituting Immaterial Subsidiaries for all purposes of this Agreement (an “Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary”) as may be necessary to ensure that the Immaterial Subsidiary Threshold is satisfied. Borrower may redesignate (a “Redesignation”) an Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary as constituting an Immaterial Subsidiary for purposes of this Agreement so long as such redesignated Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary is in compliance with the requirements of the definition of Immaterial Subsidiary and such Redesignation does not cause or otherwise result in the aggregate fair market value of the assets of all Immaterial Subsidiaries (after giving effect to the Redesignation of the Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary as an Immaterial Subsidiary) to exceed the Immaterial Subsidiary Threshold Amount. For purposes of this Section 9.13(a), fair market value shall be determined as of the most recent Calculation Date. (b) Any such Excluded Designation or Redesignation must be evidenced by an Officer’s Certificate of Borrower delivered to Administrative Agent with the Responsible Officer executing such certificate certifying compliance with the foregoing provisions of Section 9.13(a). (c) If Borrower redesignates an Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary as an Immaterial Subsidiary in accordance with this Section 9.13, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, the Obligations of such Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary (as a Guarantor) under the Credit Documents shall terminate and be of no further force and all Liens granted by such Excluded Immaterial Subsidiary (as a Guarantor) under the applicable Security Documents shall terminate and be released and be of no further force and effect, in each case, without any action required by Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent. At Borrower’s request, Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent will execute and deliver any instrument evidencing such termination and Collateral Agent shall take all actions appropriate in order to effect the termination and release of such Lien and without recourse or warranty by Collateral Agent (including the execution and delivery of appropriate UCC termination statements and such other instruments and releases as may be necessary and appropriate to effect such release). Any such foregoing actions taken by Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent shall be at the sole cost and expense of Borrower. SECTION 9.14. Wynn Las Vegas Distributions.

SECTION 11.02. Application of Proceeds. The proceeds received by Collateral Agent in respect of any sale of, collection from or other realization upon all or any part of the Collateral pursuant to the exercise by Collateral Agent of its remedies, or otherwise received after acceleration of the Loans, shall be applied, in full or in part, together with any other sums then held by Collateral Agent pursuant to this Agreement, promptly by Collateral Agent as follows: (a) First, to the payment of all reasonable costs and expenses, fees, commissions and Taxes of such sale, collection or other realization including compensation to Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent and their respective agents and counsel, and all expenses, liabilities and advances made or incurred by Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent in connection therewith and all amounts for which Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as applicable is entitled to indemnification pursuant to the provisions of any Credit Document; (b) Second, to the payment of all other reasonable costs and expenses of such sale, collection or other realization and of any receiver of any part of the Collateral appointed pursuant to the applicable Security Documents including compensation to the other Secured Parties and their agents and counsel and all costs, liabilities and advances made or incurred by the other Secured Parties in connection therewith; (c) Third, without duplication of amounts applied pursuant to clauses (a) and (b) above, to the indefeasible payment in full in cash, pro rata, of interest and other amounts constituting Obligations (other than principal, reimbursement obligations in respect of L/C Liabilities and obligations to Cash Collateralize L/C Liabilities) and any fees, premiums and scheduled periodic payments due under Obligations arising under Secured Cash Management Agreements and Swap Contracts that constitute Secured Obligations (as defined in the Security Agreement) and any interest accrued thereon, in each case equally and ratably in accordance with the respective amounts thereof then due and owing; (d) Fourth, to the indefeasible payment in full in cash, pro rata, of principal amount of the Obligations and any premium thereon (including reimbursement obligations in respect of L/C Liabilities and obligations to Cash Collateralize L/C Liabilities) and any breakage, termination or other payments under Obligations arising under Secured Cash Management Agreements and Swap Contracts that constitute Secured Obligations (as defined in the Security Agreement) and any interest accrued thereon; and (e) Fifth, the balance, if any, to the Person lawfully entitled thereto (including the applicable Credit Party or its successors or assigns) or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 10.08, in the event that Borrower shall fail to comply with the financial maintenance covenants set forth in Section 10.08, any equity contribution (in the form of common equity or other equity having terms reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent) made or contributed to Borrower, or cash proceeds of Intercompany Contribution Indebtedness incurred by Borrower, after the last day of any fiscal quarter and on or prior to the day that is ten (10) Business Days after the day on which financial statements are required to be delivered for that fiscal quarter (such date, the “Cure Expiration Date”) will, at the request of Borrower, be included in the calculation of Consolidated EBITDA solely for the purposes of determining compliance with such financial maintenance covenants at the end of such fiscal quarter and any subsequent period that includes such fiscal quarter (any such equity contribution or cash proceeds, a “Specified Equity Contribution”); provided that (a) no Lender shall be required to make any extension of credit during the ten (10) Business Day period referred to above if Borrower has not received the proceeds of such Specified Equity Contribution, (b) Borrower shall not be permitted to so request that a Specified Equity Contribution be included in the calculation of Consolidated EBITDA with respect to any fiscal quarter unless, after giving effect to such requested Specified Equity Contribution, there will be a period of at least two (2) fiscal quarters in the Relevant Four Fiscal Quarter Period in which no Specified Equity Contribution has been made and there shall be no more than five (5) Specified Equity Contributions in total, (c) the amount of any Specified Equity Contribution and the use of proceeds therefrom will be no greater than the amount required to cause Borrower to be in compliance with such financial maintenance covenants, (d) all proceeds of Specified Equity Contributions will be disregarded for all other purposes under the Credit Documents (including calculating Consolidated EBITDA for purposes of determining basket levels and other items governed by reference to Consolidated EBITDA, and for purposes of negative covenants (other than such financial maintenance covenants)), (e) the proceeds of each Specified Equity Contributions shall have been contributed to Borrower as equity solely in exchange for Qualified Capital Stock of Borrower or as Intercompany Contribution Indebtedness and (f) there shall be no reduction in Indebtedness (whether on a pro forma basis or otherwise) with the proceeds of any Specified Equity Contribution for purposes of determining compliance with such financial maintenance covenants for the fiscal quarter for which such Specified Equity Contribution was made. ARTICLE XII. AGENTS SECTION 12.01. Appointment. Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints DB to act on its behalf as the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent hereunder and under the other Credit Documents, and authorizes the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent by the terms hereof or thereof, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, including pursuant to regulatory requirements of any Gaming Authority consistent with the intents and purposes of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents. DB is hereby appointed Auction Manager hereunder, and each Lender hereby authorizes the Auction Manager to act as its agent in accordance with the terms hereof and of the other Credit Documents; provided, that Borrower shall have the right to select and appoint a replacement Auction Manager from time to time by written notice to Administrative Agent, and any such replacement shall also be so authorized to act in such capacity. Each Lender agrees that the Auction Manager shall have solely the obligations in its capacity as the Auction Manager as are specifically described in this Agreement and shall be entitled to the benefits of Article XII, as applicable. Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize each of the Agents (other than the Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent and the Auction Manager) to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to such Agent by the terms of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders, and neither


 
-125- Borrower nor any other Credit Party shall have rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions of this Article XII, except to the extent set forth in this Section 12.01, Section 12.06 and Section 12.07(b). It is understood and agreed that the use of the term “agent” herein or in any other Credit Documents (or any other similar term) with reference to any Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable Law. Instead such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties. SECTION 12.02. Rights as a Lender. Any Person serving as an Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender (if applicable) as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not an Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires, include the Person serving as such Agent hereunder in its individual capacity. Such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, own securities of, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for and generally engage in any kind of business with Borrower or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not an Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders. SECTION 12.03. Exculpatory Provisions. No Agent shall have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in the other Credit Documents, and each Agent’s duties hereunder shall be administrative in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no Agent: (a) shall be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties with respect to any Credit Party, any Lender or any other Person, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing; (b) shall have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Credit Documents that the Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Credit Documents), provided that no Agent shall be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose such Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Credit Document or applicable law, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Debtor Relief Law or that may effect a forfeiture, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender in violation of any Debtor Relief Law; and (c) shall, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Credit Documents, have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to any of Borrower or any of its respective Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as such Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. No Agent shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it (i) with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or, such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in Sections 11.01 and 13.04) or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment. No Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge of any Default unless and until notice describing such Default is given in writing to such Agent by Borrower or a Lender. No Agent shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth herein or therein or the occurrence of any Default, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any other agreement, instrument or document or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article VII or elsewhere herein, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to such Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for, and shall not incur any liability with respect to, determining whether any assignee or potential assignee of the Loans or Commitments hereunder is a Competitor or a


 
-126- Disqualified Lender. The Administrative Agent does not warrant, nor accept responsibility, nor shall the Administrative Agent have any liability with respect to the administration, submission or any other matter related to the rates in the definition of “LIBO Rate” or with respect to any comparable or successor rate thereto. SECTION 12.04. Reliance by Agents. Each Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person. Each Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan, or the issuance, extension, renewal or increase of a Letter of Credit, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender, each Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender unless such Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender prior to the making of such Loan or the issuance of such Letter of Credit. Each Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts. SECTION 12.05. Delegation of Duties. Each Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Credit Document by or through any one or more sub agents appointed by such Agent. Each Agent and any such sub agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of this Article shall apply to any such sub agent and to the Related Parties of each Agent and any such sub agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as an Agent. No Agent shall be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and non appealable judgment that an Agent acted with gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents. SECTION 12.06. Resignation of Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent. (a) The Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent may at any time give notice of their resignation to the Lenders and Borrower. Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, with the prior written consent of Borrower (unless an Event of Default specified in Section 11.01(b) or 11.01(c) or an Event of Default specified in Section 11.01(g) or 11.01(h) with respect to Borrower has occurred and is continuing) to appoint a successor, which shall be a bank with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of any such bank with an office in the United States. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent gives notice of their resignation (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders and Borrower (unless an Event of Default specified in Section 11.01(b) or 11.01(c) or an Event of Default specified in Section 11.01(g) or 11.01(h) with respect to Borrower has occurred and is continuing)) (the “Resignation Effective Date”), then the retiring Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above. Whether or not a successor has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date. (b) If the Person serving as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent is a Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iii) of the definition thereof, the Required Lenders may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, by notice in writing to Borrower and such Person remove such Person as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent and, in consultation with Borrower, appoint a successor. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the “Removal Effective Date”), then such removal shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice on the Removal Effective Date. (c) With effect from the Resignation Effective Date or the Removal Effective Date (as applicable) (1) the retiring or removed Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Credit Documents (except that in the case of any collateral security held


 
-127- by the Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties under any of the Credit Documents, the retiring or removed Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as applicable, shall continue to hold such collateral security until such time as a successor Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent is appointed) and (2) except for any indemnity payments or other amounts then owed to the retiring or removed Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent shall instead be made by or to each Secured Party directly, until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent as provided for above. Upon the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring (or removed) Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent (other than any rights to indemnity payments or other amounts owed to the retiring or removed Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent as of the Resignation Effective Date or the Removal Effective Date, as applicable), and the retiring or removed Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Credit Documents (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this Section). The fees payable by Borrower to a successor Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between Borrower and such successor. After the retiring or removed Administrative Agent’s and Collateral Agent’s resignation or removal hereunder and under the other Credit Documents, the provisions of this Article and Section 13.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring or removed Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, their sub agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring or removed Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent was acting as Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent. (d) Any resignation by DB as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent pursuant to this Section shall also constitute its resignation as L/C Lender. If DB resigns as an L/C Lender, it shall retain all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of an L/C Lender hereunder with respect to all of its Letters of Credit outstanding as of the effective date of its resignation as L/C Lender and all L/C Liability with respect thereto, including the right to require the Revolving Lenders to make ABR Loans or fund risk participations in Unreimbursed Amounts pursuant to Sections 2.03(e) and (f). Upon the appointment by Borrower of a successor L/C Lender hereunder and such successor’s acceptance of such appointment (which successor shall in all cases be a Lender other than a Defaulting Lender), (a) such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring L/C Lender, (b) the retiring L/C Lender shall be discharged from all of their respective duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Credit Documents, and (c) the successor L/C Lender shall issue letters of credit in substitution for the Letters of Credit of the retiring L/C Lender, if any, outstanding at the time of such succession or make other arrangements satisfactory to the retiring L/C Lender to effectively assume the obligations of the retiring L/C Lender with respect to such Letters of Credit. SECTION 12.07. Nonreliance on Agents and Other Lenders. (a) Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder. (b) Each Lender acknowledges that in connection with Borrower Loan Purchases, (i) Borrower may purchase or acquire Term Loans or Revolving Loans hereunder from the Lenders from time to time, subject to the restrictions set forth in the definition of Eligible Assignee and in Section 13.05(d), (ii) Borrower currently may have, and later may come into possession of, information regarding such Term Loans or Revolving Loans or the Credit Parties hereunder that is not known to such Lender and that may be material to a decision by such Lender to enter into an assignment of such Loans hereunder (“Excluded Information”), (iii) such Lender has independently and without reliance on any other party made such Lender’s own analysis and determined to enter into an assignment of such Loans and to consummate the transactions contemplated thereby notwithstanding such Lender’s lack of knowledge of the Excluded Information and (iv) Borrower shall have no liability to such Lender, and such Lender


 
-128- hereby waives and releases, to the extent permitted by law, any claims such Lender may have against Borrower, under applicable laws or otherwise, with respect to the nondisclosure of the Excluded Information; provided, however, that the Excluded Information shall not and does not affect the truth or accuracy of the representations or warranties of Borrower in the Standard Terms and Conditions set forth in the applicable assignment agreement. Each Lender further acknowledges that the Excluded Information may not be available to Administrative Agent, Auction Manager or the other Lenders hereunder. SECTION 12.08. Indemnification. The Lenders agree to reimburse and indemnify each Agent in its capacity as such ratably according with its “percentage” as used in determining the Required Lenders at such time or, if the Commitments have terminated and all Loans have been repaid in full, as determined immediately prior to such termination and repayment (with such “percentages” to be determined as if there are no Defaulting Lenders), from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, reasonable expenses or disbursements of any kind whatsoever which may at any time (including, without limitation, at any time following the payment of the Obligations) be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Agent in its capacity as such in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Credit Document, or any documents contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby or any action taken or omitted to be taken by such Agent under or in connection with any of the foregoing, but only to the extent that any of the foregoing is not paid by Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable to any Agent for the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements (x) resulting primarily from the gross negligence, or willful misconduct of such Agent (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) or (y) relating to or arising out of the Fee Letter. If any indemnity furnished to any Agent for any purpose shall, in the opinion of such Agent be insufficient or become impaired, such Agent may call for additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against until such additional indemnity is furnished. The agreements in this Section 12.08 shall survive the payment of all Obligations. SECTION 12.09. No Other Duties. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, none of the Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent, Documentation Agent, Syndication Agents, Lead Arrangers, or Arrangers shall have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents, except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, an L/C Lender, the Auction Manager or a Lender hereunder. SECTION 12.10. Holders. Administrative Agent may deem and treat the payee of any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes hereof unless and until a written notice of the assignment, transfer or endorsement thereof, as the case may be, shall have been filed with Administrative Agent. Any request, authority or consent of any Person or entity who, at the time of making such request or giving such authority or consent, is the holder of any Note shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder, transferee, assignee or indorsee, as the case may be, of such Note or of any Note or Notes issued in exchange therefor. SECTION 12.11. Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law or any other judicial proceeding relative to any Credit Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or L/C Liability shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise: (a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, L/C Liabilities and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Secured Parties (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Secured Parties and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Secured Parties under Sections 2.03, 2.05 and 13.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and (b) to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;


 
-129- and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender (and each Secured Party by accepting the benefits of the Collateral) to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Secured Parties, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent under Sections 2.03, 2.05 and 13.03. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Secured Party any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Secured Party to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Secured Party in any such proceeding. SECTION 12.12. Collateral Matters. (a) Each Lender (and each other Secured Party by accepting the benefits of the Collateral) authorizes and directs Collateral Agent to enter into the Security Documents for the benefit of the Secured Parties and to hold and enforce the Liens on the Collateral on behalf of the Secured Parties. Collateral Agent is hereby authorized on behalf of all of the Lenders, without the necessity of any notice to or further consent from any Lender, from time to time prior to an Event of Default, to take any action with respect to any Collateral or Security Documents which may be necessary to perfect and maintain perfected the security interest in and liens upon the Collateral granted pursuant to the Security Documents. The Lenders hereby authorize Collateral Agent to take the actions set forth in Section 13.04(g). Upon request by Administrative Agent at any time, the Lenders will confirm in writing Collateral Agent’s authority to release particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to Section 13.04(g). (b) Collateral Agent shall have no obligation whatsoever to the Lenders, the other Secured Parties or any other Person to assure that the Collateral exists or is owned by any Credit Party or is cared for, protected or insured or that the Liens granted to Collateral Agent pursuant to the applicable Security Documents have been properly or sufficiently or lawfully created, perfected, protected or enforced or are entitled to any particular priority, or to exercise or to continue exercising at all or in any manner or under any duty of care, disclosure or fidelity any of the rights, authorities and powers granted or available to Collateral Agent in Section 12.01 or in this Section 12.12 or in any of the Security Documents, it being understood and agreed that in respect of the Collateral or any part thereof, or any act, omission or event related thereto, Collateral Agent may act in any manner it may deem appropriate, in its sole discretion, given Collateral Agent’s own interest in the Collateral or any part thereof as one of the Lenders and that Collateral Agent shall have no duty or liability whatsoever to the Lenders or the other Secured Parties, except for its gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision). SECTION 12.13. Withholding Tax. To the extent required by any applicable Requirement of Law, the Administrative Agent may withhold from any payment to any Lender, an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding tax. Without limiting or expanding the provisions of Section 5.06, each Lender shall, indemnify the relevant Administrative Agent (to the extent that Administrative Agent has not already been reimbursed by the Credit Parties and without limiting or expanding the obligation of the Credit Parties to do so), and shall make payable in respect thereof within thirty (30) calendar days after demand therefor, against any and all Taxes and any and all related losses, claims, liabilities and expenses (including fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for Administrative Agent) incurred by or asserted against Administrative Agent by the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority as a result of the failure of Administrative Agent to properly withhold tax from amounts paid to or for the account of such Lender for any reason (including, without limitation, because the appropriate form was not delivered or not property executed, or because such Lender failed to notify Administrative Agent of a change in circumstance that rendered the exemption from, or reduction of withholding tax ineffective). A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under this Agreement or any other Security Document against any amount due Administrative Agent under this Section 12.13. The agreements in this Section 12.13 shall survive the resignation and/or replacement of Administrative Agent, any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of any Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein or in any Security Document, no Cash Management Bank or Swap Provider that obtains the benefits of Section 11.02, Article VI or any Collateral by virtue of the provisions hereof or of any Security Document shall have any right to notice of any action or to consent to, direct or object to any action hereunder or under any other Credit Document or otherwise in respect of the Collateral (including the release or impairment of any Collateral) other than in its capacity as a Lender and, in such case, only to the extent expressly provided in the Credit Documents.

ARTICLE XIII. MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 13.01. Waiver. No failure on the part of Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party to exercise and no delay in exercising, and no course of dealing with respect to, any right, power or privilege under any Credit Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege under any Credit Document preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.

Notices and other communications to the Lenders hereunder may be delivered or furnished by electronic communication (including e-mail and Internet or intranet websites) pursuant to procedures approved by Administrative Agent; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not apply to notices to any Lender pursuant to Article II, Article III or Article IV if such Lender has notified Administrative Agent that it is incapable of receiving notices under such Article by electronic communication. Each Agent or any Credit Party may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it, provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications.

Borrower shall indemnify each Indemnitee from all Losses resulting from the reliance by such Indemnitee on each notice purportedly given by or on behalf of Borrower (except to the extent resulting from such Indemnitee’s own gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct or material breach of any Credit Document) and believed by such Indemnitee in good faith to be genuine. All telephonic notices to and other communications with Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent may be recorded by Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as the case may be, and each of the parties hereto hereby consents to such recording.

SECTION 13.03. Expenses, Indemnification, Etc. (a) The Credit Parties, jointly and severally, agree to pay or reimburse: (i) Agents for all of their reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including, but limited to in the case of counsel, the reasonable fees, expenses and disbursements of one primary legal counsel for Lenders and Agents selected by Administrative Agent and one local counsel in each applicable jurisdiction reasonably deemed necessary by Agents and any “ClearPar” costs and


 
-132- expenses) in connection with (1) the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of the Credit Documents and the extension and syndication of credit (including the Loans and Commitments) hereunder and (2) the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of any modification, supplement, amendment or waiver of any of the terms of any Credit Document (whether or not consummated or effective) requested by the Credit Parties; (ii) each Agent and each Lender for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses of such Agent or Lender (provided that any legal expenses shall be limited to the reasonable fees, expenses and disbursements of one primary legal counsel for Lenders and Agents selected by Administrative Agent and of one local counsel in each applicable jurisdiction reasonably deemed necessary by Agents) (and solely in the case of an actual or perceived conflict of interest, where the Persons affected by such conflict inform Borrower in writing of the existence of an actual or perceived conflict of interest prior to retaining additional counsel, one additional of each such counsel for each group of similarly situated Secured Parties)) in connection with (1) any enforcement or collection proceedings resulting from any Event of Default, including all manner of participation in or other involvement with (x) bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, foreclosure, winding up or liquidation proceedings, (y) judicial or regulatory proceedings and (z) workout, restructuring or other negotiations or proceedings (whether or not the workout, restructuring or transaction contemplated thereby is consummated), (2) following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the enforcement of any Credit Document and (3) the enforcement of this Section 13.03; and (iii) Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent, as applicable but without duplication, for all reasonable and documented costs, expenses, assessments and other charges (including reasonable fees and disbursements of one counsel in each applicable jurisdiction) incurred in connection with any filing, registration, recording or perfection of any security interest contemplated by any Credit Document or any other document referred to therein. Without limiting the rights of any Agent under this Section 13.03(a), each Agent, promptly after a request of Borrower from time to time, will advise Borrower of an estimate of any amount anticipated to be incurred by such Agent and reimbursed by Borrower under this Section 13.03(a). (b) The Credit Parties, jointly and severally, hereby agree to indemnify each Agent, each Lender and their respective Affiliates, directors, trustees, officers, employees, representatives, advisors, partners and agents (each, an “Indemnitee”) from, and hold each of them harmless against, any and all Losses incurred by, imposed on or asserted against any of them directly or indirectly arising out of or by reason of or relating to the negotiation, execution, delivery, performance, administration or enforcement of any Credit Document, any of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Documents (including the Transactions), any breach by any Credit Party of any representation, warranty, covenant or other agreement contained in any Credit Document in connection with any of the Transactions, the use or proposed use of any of the Loans or Letters of Credit, the issuance of or performance under any Letter of Credit or, the use of any collateral security for the Obligations (including the exercise by any Agent or Lender of the rights and remedies or any power of attorney with respect thereto or any action or inaction in respect thereof), including all amounts payable by any Lender pursuant to Section 12.08, but excluding (i) any such Losses relating to matters referred to in Sections 5.01 or 5.06 (which shall be the sole remedy in respect of matters referred to therein), (ii) any such Losses arising from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct or material breach of any Credit Documents by such Indemnitee or its Related Indemnified Persons (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) and (iii) any such Losses relating to any dispute between and among Indemnitees that does not involve an act or omission by any Company (other than any claims against Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent, any other agent or bookrunner named on the cover page hereto or any L/C Lender, in each case, acting in such capacities or fulfilling such roles). For purposes of this Section 13.03(b), a “Related Indemnified Person” of an Indemnitee means (1) any controlling person or controlled affiliate of such Indemnitee, (2) the respective directors, officers, or employees of such Indemnitee or any of its controlling persons or controlled Affiliates and (3) the respective agents of such Indemnitee or any of its controlling persons or controlled Affiliates, in the case of this clause (3), acting at the instructions of such Indemnitee, controlling person or such controlled Affiliate; provided that each reference to a controlled Affiliate or controlling


 
-133- person in this sentence pertains to a controlled Affiliate or controlling person involved in the performance of the Indemnitee’s obligations under the facilities. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Credit Parties, jointly and severally, will indemnify each Agent, each Lender and each other Indemnitee from, and hold each Agent, each Lender and each other Indemnitee harmless against, any Losses incurred by, imposed on or asserted against any of them arising under any Environmental Law as a result of (i) the past, present or future operations of any Company (or any predecessor-in- interest to any Company), (ii) the past, present or future condition of any site or facility owned, operated, leased or used at any time by any Company (or any such predecessor-in-interest) to the extent such Losses arise from or relate to the parties’ relationship under the Credit Documents or to any Company’s (or such predecessor-in-interest’s) (A) ownership, operation, lease or use of such site or facility or (B) any aspect of the respective business or operations of such parties, and, in each case shall include, without limitation, any and all such Losses for which any Company could be found liable, or (iii) any Release or threatened Release of any Hazardous Materials at, on, under or from any such site or facility to the extent such Losses arise from or relate to the parties’ relationship under the Credit Documents or to any Company’s (or such predecessor-in-interest’s) (A) ownership, operation, lease or use of such site or facility or (B) any aspect of the respective business or operations of such parties, and, in each case shall include, without limitation, any and all such Losses for which any Company could be found liable, including any such Release or threatened Release that shall occur during any period when any Agent or Lender shall be in possession of any such site or facility following the exercise by such Agent or Lender, as the case may be, of any of its rights and remedies hereunder or under any of the Security Documents; provided, however, that the indemnity hereunder shall be subject to the exclusions from indemnification set forth in the preceding sentence. To the extent that the undertaking to indemnify and hold harmless set forth in this Section 13.03 or any other provision of any Credit Document providing for indemnification is unenforceable because it is violative of any law or public policy or otherwise, the Credit Parties, jointly and severally, shall contribute the maximum portion that each of them is permitted to pay and satisfy under applicable law to the payment and satisfaction of all indemnified liabilities incurred by any of the Persons indemnified hereunder. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no party hereto shall assert, and the parties hereto hereby waive, any claim against any Person, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Credit Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof; provided that nothing contained in this sentence shall limit the Credit Parties’ indemnity and reimbursement obligations to the extent set forth in this Section 13.03 (including the Credit Parties’ indemnity and reimbursement obligations to indemnify the Indemnitees for indirect, special, punitive or consequential damage that are included in any third party claim in connection with which such Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification hereunder). No Indemnitee referred to in subsection (b) above shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed to such unintended recipients by such Indemnitee through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Credit Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby other than for direct or actual damages resulting from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct or material breach of any Credit Document by such Indemnitee as determined by a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. SECTION 13.04. Amendments and Waiver. (a) Neither this Agreement nor any other Credit Document nor any terms hereof or thereof may be amended, modified, changed or waived, unless such amendment, modification, change or waiver is in writing signed by the respective Credit Parties party thereto and the Required Lenders (or Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders); provided, however, that no such amendment, modification, change or waiver shall (and any such amendment, modification, change or waiver set forth below in clauses (i) through (vi) of this Section 13.04(a) shall only require the approval of the Agents and/or Lenders whose consent is required therefor pursuant to such clauses):


 
-134- (i) extend the date for any scheduled payment of principal on any Loan or Note or extend the stated maturity of any Letter of Credit beyond any R/C Maturity Date (unless such Letter of Credit is required to be cash collateralized or otherwise backstopped (with a letter of credit on customary terms) to the Administrative Agent’s and applicable L/C Lender’s reasonable satisfaction or the participations therein are required to be assumed by Lenders that have Revolving Commitments which extend beyond such R/C Maturity Date) or extend the termination date of any of the Commitments, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest (other than as a result of any waiver of the applicability of any post-default increase in interest rates) or fees thereon, or forgive or reduce the principal amount thereof, without the consent of each Lender directly affected thereby (it being understood that any amendment or modification to the financial definitions in this Agreement shall not constitute a reduction in any rate of interest or fees for purposes of this clause (i), notwithstanding the fact that such amendment or modification actually results in such a reduction); (ii) release (x) all or substantially all of the Collateral (except as provided in the Security Documents) under all the Security Documents or (y) all or substantially all of the Guarantors from the Guarantees, without the consent of each Lender; (iii) amend, modify, change or waive (x) any provision of Section 11.02 or this Section 13.04 without the consent of each Lender, (y) any other provision of any Credit Document or any other provision of this Agreement that expressly provides that the consent of all Lenders is required, without the consent of each Lender or (z) any provision of any Credit Document that expressly provides that the consent of the Required Tranche Lenders of a particular Tranche or Required Revolving Lenders is required, without the consent of the Required Tranche Lenders of such Tranche or the Required Revolving Lenders, as the case may be (in each case, except for technical amendments with respect to additional extensions of credit (including Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Loans) pursuant to this Agreement which afford the benefits or protections to such additional extensions of credit of the type provided to the Term Loans and/or the Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans, as applicable); (iv) (x) reduce the percentage specified in the definition of Required Lenders or Required Tranche Lenders or otherwise amend the definition of Required Lenders or Required Tranche Lenders without the consent of each Lender or (y) reduce the percentage specified in the definition of Required Revolving Lenders or otherwise amend the definition of Required Revolving Lenders without the consent of each Revolving Lender (provided that, (x) no such consent shall be required for technical amendments with respect to additional extensions of credit pursuant to this Agreement, and (y) with the consent of the Required Lenders, additional extensions of credit (including Extended Term Loans and Extended Revolving Loans) pursuant to this Agreement may be included in the determination of the Required Lenders, Required Tranche Lenders and/or Required Revolving Lenders on substantially the same basis as the extensions of Loans and Commitments are included on the Closing Date); (v) amend, modify, change or waive Section 4.02 or Section 4.07(b) in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby, without the consent of each Lender directly affected thereby (except for technical amendments with respect to additional extensions of credit (including Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Loans) pursuant to this Agreement which afford the protections to such additional extensions of credit of the type provided to the Term Loans and/or the Revolving Commitments and Revolving Loans, as applicable); (vi) impose any greater restriction on the ability of any Lender under a Tranche to assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the written consent of the Required Tranche Lenders for such Tranche; or (vii) amend, modify, change or waive any provision in Section 7.02 or waive any Default or Event of Default (or amend any Credit Document to effectively waive any Default or Event of Default), excluding any general waiver of any Default or Event of Default by the Required Lenders (as opposed to a waive only for the purpose of making such extension of credit), if the effect of such amendment, modification, change or waiver would require Lenders under a Tranche to fund its Loans when such


 
-135- Lenders would otherwise not be required to do so, without the written consent of the Required Tranche Lenders for such Tranche; provided, further, that no such amendment, modification, change or waiver shall (A) increase the Commitments of any Lender over the amount thereof then in effect without the consent of such Lender (it being understood that waivers or modifications of conditions precedent, covenants, Defaults or Events of Default or of a mandatory reduction in the total Commitments or Total Revolving Commitments or a waiver of a mandatory prepayment shall not constitute an increase of the Commitment of any Lender), (B) without the consent of each L/C Lender, amend, modify, change or waive any provision of Section 2.03 or alter such L/C Lender’s rights or obligations with respect to Letters of Credit, (C) without the consent of any applicable Agent, amend, modify, change or waive any provision as same relates to the rights or obligations of such Agent, (D) amend, modify, change or waive Section 2.10(b) in a manner that by its terms adversely affects the rights in respect of prepayments due to Lenders holding Loans of one Tranche differently from the rights of Lenders holding Loans of any other Tranche without the prior written consent of the Required Tranche Lenders of each adversely affected Tranche (such consent being in lieu of the consent of the Required Lenders required above in this Section 13.04(a)) (except for technical amendments with respect to additional extensions of credit pursuant to this Agreement (including Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Loans) so that such additional extensions may share in the application of prepayments (or commitment reductions) with any Tranche of Term Loans or Revolving Loans, as applicable); provided, however, the Required Lenders may waive, in whole or in part, any prepayment so long as the application, as between Tranches, of any portion of such prepayment which is still required to be made is not altered or (E) amend or modify the definition of “Alternate Currency” or Section 1.05 without the prior written consent of all the Revolving Lenders (such consent being in lieu of the consent of the Required Lenders required above in this Section 13.04(a)). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Defaulting Lender shall have any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent hereunder, except that (x) the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender may not be increased or extended without the consent of such Defaulting Lender, (y) the principal and accrued and unpaid interest of such Defaulting Lender’s Loans shall not be reduced or forgiven (other than as a result of any waiver of the applicability of any post-default increase in interest rates), nor shall the date for any scheduled payment of any such amounts be postponed, without the consent of such Defaulting Lender (it being understood that any amendment or modification to the financial definitions in this Agreement shall not constitute a reduction in any rate of interest or fees for purposes of this clause (y), notwithstanding the fact that such amendment or modification actually results in such a reduction) and (z) any waiver, amendment or modification requiring the consent of all Lenders or each affected Lender that by its terms affects any Defaulting Lender more adversely than other affected Lenders shall require the consent of such Defaulting Lender (other than in the case of a consent by the Administrative Agent to permit Borrower and its Subsidiaries to purchase Revolving Commitments (and Revolving Loans made pursuant thereto) of Defaulting Lenders in excess of the amount permitted pursuant to Section 13.04(h)). In addition, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Fee Letter may only be amended or changed, or rights or privileges thereunder waived, only by the parties thereto in accordance with the respective provisions thereof. (b) If, in connection with any proposed amendment, modification, change or waiver of or to any of the provisions of this Agreement, the consent of the Required Lenders (or in the case of a proposed amendment, modification, change or waiver affecting a particular Class or Tranche, the Lenders holding a majority of the Loans and Commitments with respect to such Class or Tranche) is obtained but the consent of one or more of such other Lenders whose consent is required is not obtained, then Borrower shall have the right, so long as all non-consenting Lenders whose individual consent is required are treated as described in either clause (A) or (B) below, to either: (A) replace each such non-consenting Lender or Lenders (or, at the option of Borrower, if such non-consenting Lender’s consent is required with respect to a particular Class or Tranche of Loans (or related Commitments), to replace only the Classes or Tranches of Commitments and/or Loans of such non- consenting Lender with respect to which such Lender’s individual consent is required (such Classes or Tranches, the “Affected Classes”)) with one or more Replacement Lenders, so long as, at the time of such replacement, each such Replacement Lender consents to the proposed amendment, modification, change or


 
-136- waiver; provided, further, that (i) at the time of any such replacement, the Replacement Lender shall enter into one or more Assignment Agreements (and with all fees payable pursuant to Section 13.05(b) to be paid by the Replacement Lender) pursuant to which the Replacement Lender shall acquire all of the Commitments and outstanding Loans of, and in each case L/C Interests of, the Replaced Lender (or, at the option of Borrower if the respective Lender’s consent is required with respect to less than all Tranches of Loans (or related Commitments), the Commitments, outstanding Loans and L/C Interests of the Affected Classes), (ii) at the time of any replacement, the Replaced Lender shall receive an amount equal to the sum of (A) the principal of, and all accrued interest on, all outstanding Loans of such Lender (other than any Loans not being acquired by the Replacement Lender), (B) all Reimbursement Obligations (expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in the Alternate Currency) owing to such Lender, together with all then unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time, in the event Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments owing to such Lender are being acquired and (C) all accrued, but theretofore unpaid, fees and other amounts owing to the Lender with respect to the Loans being so assigned and (iii) all obligations of Borrower owing to such Replaced Lender (other than those specifically described in clause (ii) above in respect of Replaced Lenders for which the assignment purchase price has been, or is concurrently being, paid, and other than those relating to Loans or Commitments not being acquired by the Replacement Lender, but including any amounts which would be paid to a Lender pursuant to Section 5.05 if Borrower were prepaying a LIBOR Loan), as applicable, shall be paid in full to such Replaced Lender, as applicable, concurrently with such replacement. Upon the execution of the respective Assignment Agreement, the payment of amounts referred to in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above, as applicable, the receipt of any consents that would be required for an assignment of the subject Loans and Commitments to such Replacement Lender in accordance with Section 13.05, the Replacement Lender, if any, shall become a Lender hereunder and the Replaced Lender, as applicable, shall cease to constitute a Lender hereunder and be released of all its obligations as a Lender, except with respect to indemnification provisions applicable to such Lender under this Agreement, which shall survive as to such Lender and, in the case of any Replaced Lender, except with respect to Loans, Commitments and L/C Interests of such Replaced Lender not being acquired by the Replacement Lender; provided, that if the applicable Replaced Lender does not execute the Assignment Agreement within three (3) Business Days after Borrower’s request, execution of such Assignment Agreement by the Replaced Lender shall not be required to effect such assignment; or (B) terminate such non-consenting Lender’s Commitment and/or repay Loans held by such Lender (or, if such non-consenting Lender’s consent is required with respect to a particular Class or Tranche of Loans, the Commitment and Loans of the Affected Class) and, if applicable, Cash Collateralize its applicable R/C Percentage of the L/C Liability, in either case, upon three (3) Business Days’ (or such shorter period as is acceptable to Administrative Agent) prior written notice to Administrative Agent at the Principal Office (which notice Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the Lenders). Any such prepayment of the Loans or termination of the Commitments of such Lender shall be made together with accrued and unpaid interest, fees and other amounts owing to such Lender (including all amounts, if any, owing pursuant to Section 5.05) (or if the applicable consent requires approval of all Lenders of a particular Tranche but not all Lenders, then Borrower shall terminate all Commitments and/or repay all Loans, in each case together with payment of all accrued and unpaid interest, fees and other amounts owing to such Lender (including all amounts, if any, owing pursuant to Section 5.05) under such Tranche), so long as (i) in the case of the repayment of Revolving Loans of any Lender pursuant to this Section 13.04(b)(B), (A) the Revolving Commitment of such Lender is terminated concurrently with such repayment and (B) such Lender’s R/C Percentage of all outstanding Letters of Credit is Cash Collateralized or backstopped by Borrower in a manner reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent and the L/C Lenders. Immediately upon any repayment of Loans by Borrower pursuant to this Section 13.04(b)(B), such Loans repaid or acquired pursuant hereto shall be cancelled for all purposes and no longer outstanding (and may not be resold, assigned or participated out by Borrower) for all purposes of this Agreement and all other Credit Documents (provided, that such purchases and cancellations shall not constitute prepayments or repayments of the Loans for any purpose hereunder (except for purposes of Section 2.09(c))), including, but not limited to (A) the making of, or the application of, any payments to the Lenders under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (B) the making of any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent or waiver under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (C) the providing of any


 
-137- rights to Borrower as a Lender under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, and (D) the determination of Required Lenders, or for any similar or related purpose, under this Agreement or any other Credit Document; provided, however, that, unless the Commitments which are terminated and Loans which are repaid pursuant to this clause (B) are immediately replaced in full at such time through the addition of new Lenders or the increase of the Commitments and/or outstanding Loans of existing Lenders (who in each case must consent thereto), then, in the case of any action pursuant to this clause (B), the Required Lenders (determined after giving effect to the proposed action) shall specifically consent thereto; provided, that Borrower shall not have the right to replace a Lender, or terminate the Commitments of or repay the Loans of a Lender under this Section 13.04(b), solely as a result of the exercise of such Lender’s rights (and the withholding of any required consent by such Lender) pursuant to clauses (A) through (F) of the second proviso to Section 13.04(a). (c) Administrative Agent and Borrower may (without the consent of Lenders) amend any Credit Document to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of Other Term Loans, Other Revolving Loans, Extended Term Loans and Extended Revolving Loans. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, such amendment shall become effective without any further consent of any other party to such Credit Document. In addition, upon the effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment, Administrative Agent, Borrower and the Lenders providing the relevant Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness may amend this Agreement to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of the Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness incurred pursuant thereto (including any amendments necessary to treat the Loans and Commitments subject thereto as Other Term Loans, Other Revolving Loans, Other Revolving Commitments and/or Other Term Loan Commitments). Administrative Agent and Borrower may effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of Administrative Agent and Borrower, to effect the terms of any Refinancing Amendment. Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent may enter into amendments to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents with Borrower as may be necessary in order to establish new tranches or sub-tranches in respect of the Loans and/or Commitments extended pursuant to Section 2.13 or incurred pursuant to Sections 2.12 or 2.15 and such technical amendments as may be necessary or appropriate in the reasonable opinion of Administrative Agent and Borrower in connection with the establishment of such new tranches or sub-tranches, in each case on terms consistent with Section 2.13, Section 2.12 or Section 2.15. (d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement may be amended (or amended and restated) with the written consent of the Required Lenders, Administrative Agent and Borrower (a) to add one or more additional credit facilities to this Agreement and to permit extensions of credit from time to time outstanding thereunder and the accrued interest and fees in respect thereof to share ratably in the benefits of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents with the Term Loans (or any Tranche thereof in the case of additional Term Loans) and the Revolving Loans (or any Tranche of Revolving Commitments in the case of additional Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments) and the accrued interest and fees in respect thereof and (b) to include appropriately the Lenders holding such credit facilities in any determination of the Required Lenders.

(g) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent shall (A) release any Lien granted to or held by Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent upon any Collateral (i) upon Payment in Full of the Obligations (other than (x) obligations under any Swap Contracts as to which acceptable arrangements have been made to the satisfaction of the relevant counterparties and (y) Cash Management Agreements not yet due and payable), (ii) upon the sale, transfer or other disposition of Collateral to the extent required pursuant to the last paragraph in Section 10.05 (and Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent may rely conclusively on a certificate to that effect provided to it by any Credit Party upon its reasonable request without further inquiry) to any Person other than a Credit Party, (iii) if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Lenders (or all of the Lenders to the extent required by Section 13.04(a)), (iv) if the property subject to such Lien is owned by a Guarantor, upon release of such Guarantor from its obligations under its Guarantee pursuant to Section 6.08, (v) constituting Equity Interests in or property of an Unrestricted Subsidiary, (vi) subject to Liens permitted under Sections 10.02(i) or 10.02(k), in each case, to the extent the documents governing such Liens do not permit such Collateral to secure the Obligations, or (vii) as otherwise may be provided herein or in the relevant Security Documents, and (B) consent to and enter into (and execute documents permitting the filing and recording, where appropriate) the grant of easements and covenants and subordination rights with respect to real property, conditions, restrictions and declarations on customary terms, and subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreements on customary terms reasonably requested by Borrower with respect to leases entered into by Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries, to the extent requested by Borrower and not materially adverse to the interests of the Lenders. (h) If any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, Borrower shall have the right to terminate such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Commitment and repay the Loans related thereto as provided below so long as Borrower Cash Collateralizes or backstops such Defaulting Lender’s applicable R/C Percentage of the L/C Liability to the reasonable satisfaction of the L/C Issuer and the Administrative Agent; provided that such terminations of Revolving Commitments shall not exceed 20% of the initial aggregate principal amount of the Revolving Commitments on the Closing Date; provided, further, that Borrower and its Subsidiaries may terminate additional Revolving Commitments of Defaulting Lenders and repay the Loans related thereto pursuant to this Section 13.04(h) with the consent of the Administrative Agent.

-139- fees owing to the Lender pursuant to Section 2.05 with respect to the Loans being so repaid, as the case may be and all other obligations of Borrower owing to such Replaced Lender (other than those relating to Loans or Commitments not being terminated or repaid) shall be paid in full to such Defaulting Lender concurrently with such termination. At such time, unless the respective Lender continues to have outstanding Loans or Commitments hereunder, such Lender shall no longer constitute a “Lender” for purposes of this Agreement, except with respect to indemnifications under this Agreement (including, without limitation, Sections 4.02, 5.01, 5.03, 5.05, 5.06 and 13.03), which shall survive as to such repaid Lender. Immediately upon any repayment of Loans by Borrower pursuant to this Section 13.04(h), such Loans repaid pursuant hereto shall be cancelled for all purposes and no longer outstanding (and may not be resold, assigned or participated out by Borrower) for all purposes of this Agreement and all other Credit Documents (provided; that such purchases and cancellations shall not constitute prepayments or repayments of the Loans (including, without limitation, pursuant to Section 2.09, Section 2.10 or Article IV) for any purpose hereunder), including, but not limited to (A) the making of, or the application of, any payments to the Lenders under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (B) the making of any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent or waiver under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (C) the providing of any rights to Borrower as a Lender under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, and (D) the determination of Required Lenders, or for any similar or related purpose, under this Agreement or any other Credit Document. SECTION 13.05. Benefit of Agreement; Assignments; Participations. (a) This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto; provided, however, no Credit Party may assign or transfer any of its rights, obligations or interest hereunder or under any other Credit Document (it being understood that a merger or consolidation not prohibited by this Agreement shall not constitute an assignment or transfer) without the prior written consent of all of the Lenders and provided, further, that, although any Lender may transfer, assign or grant participations in its rights hereunder, such Lender shall remain a “Lender” for all purposes hereunder (and may not transfer or assign all or any portion of its Commitments, Loans or related Obligations hereunder except as provided in Section 13.05(b)) and the participant shall not constitute a “Lender” hereunder; and provided, further, that no Lender shall transfer, assign or grant any participation (w) to a natural person, (x) to a Competitor (unless consented to by Borrower), (y) to a Disqualified Lender (unless consented to by Borrower) or (z) under which the participant shall have rights to approve any amendment to or waiver of this Agreement or any other Credit Document except to the extent such amendment or waiver would (i) extend the date for any scheduled payment on, or the final scheduled maturity of, any Loan, Note or Letter of Credit (unless such Letter of Credit is not extended beyond any applicable R/C Maturity Date (unless such Letter of Credit is required to be cash collateralized or otherwise backstopped (with a letter of credit on customary terms) to the applicable L/C Lender’s and the Administrative Agent’s reasonable satisfaction or the participations therein are required to be assumed by Lenders that have commitments which extend beyond such R/C Maturity Date)) in which such participant is participating, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest or fees thereon (except in connection with a waiver of applicability of any post-default increase in interest rates) or reduce the principal amount thereof, or increase the amount of the participant’s participation over the amount thereof then in effect (it being understood that a waiver of any Default or Event of Default or of a mandatory reduction in the total Commitments or Total Revolving Commitments or of a mandatory prepayment shall not constitute a change in the terms of such participation, that an increase in any Commitment (or the available portion thereof) or Loan shall be permitted without the consent of any participant if the participant’s participation is not increased as a result thereof and that any amendment or modification to the financial definitions in this Agreement shall not constitute a reduction in any rate of interest or fees for purposes of this clause (i), notwithstanding the fact that such amendment or modification actually results in such a reduction), (ii) consent to the assignment or transfer by any Credit Party of any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or other Credit Document to which it is a party or (iii) release all or substantially all of the Collateral under all of the Security Documents (except as expressly provided in the Credit Documents) supporting the Loans or Letters of Credit hereunder in which such participant is participating. In the case of any such participation, the participant shall not have any rights under this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents (the participant’s rights against such Lender in respect of such participation to be those set forth in the agreement executed by such Lender in favor of the participant relating thereto). Subject to the last sentence of this paragraph (a), Borrower agrees that each participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 5.01, and 5.06 (subject to the obligations and limitations of such Sections, including Section 5.06(b), (c) and (d) (it being


 
-140- understood that the documentation required under Section 5.06(b), (c) and (d) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section 13.05. To the extent permitted by law, each participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 4.07 as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each participant and the principal amounts (and related interest amounts) of each participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under this Agreement (the “Participant Register”). The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive, absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. No Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of a Participant Register (including the identity of any participant or any information relating to a participant's interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Credit Document) to any Person except to the extent such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. A participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 5.01 or 5.06 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such participant, unless the entitlement to a greater payment results from any change in applicable Laws after the date the participant became a participant. (b) No Lender (or any Lender together with one or more other Lenders) may assign all or any portion of its Commitments, Loans and related outstanding Obligations (or, if the Commitments with respect to the relevant Tranche have terminated, outstanding Loans and Obligations) hereunder, except to one or more Eligible Assignees (treating any fund that invests in loans and any other fund that invests in loans and is managed or advised by the same investment advisor of such fund or by an Affiliate of such investment advisor as a single Eligible Assignee) with the consent of Administrative Agent and in the case of an assignment of Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments, the consent of each L/C Lender and, so long as no Event of Default pursuant to Section 11.01(b) or 11.01(c), or, with respect to Borrower, 11.01(g) or 11.01(h), has occurred and is continuing, Borrower (each such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided that (x) except in the case of an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitments and Loans at the time owing to it, the aggregate amount of the Commitments or Loans subject to such assignment shall not be less than $5.0 million; (y) no such consent of Borrower shall be necessary in the case of (i) an assignment of Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments by a Revolving Lender to another Revolving Lender and (ii) an assignment of Term Facility Loans by a Lender to (A) its parent company and/or any Affiliate of such Lender which is at least 50% owned by such Lender or its parent company or (B) one or more other Lenders or any Affiliate of any such other Lender which is at least 50% owned by such other Lender or its parent company (provided that any fund that invests in loans and is managed or advised by the same investment advisor of another fund which is a Lender (or by an Affiliate of such investment advisor) shall be treated as an Affiliate that is at least 50% owned by such other Lender or its parent company for the purposes of this sub-clause (x)(ii)(B)), or (C) in the case of any Lender that is a fund that invests in loans, any other fund that invests in loans and is managed or advised by the same investment advisor of any Lender or by an Affiliate of such investment advisor, and (y) Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to Administrative Agent within ten (10) Business Days after having received notice thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, so long as no Event of Default pursuant to Section 11.01(b) or 11.01(c), or, with respect to Borrower, 11.01(g) or 11.01(h), has occurred and is continuing, no assignment will be permitted to any Lender that will result in such Lender holding, collectively with its Affiliates (including any Person deemed to be an Affiliate for purposes of sub-clause (x)(ii)(B) above), Loans and Commitments having an aggregate principal amount of $100.0 million, or greater, without the prior written consent of Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed); provided that Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to Administrative Agent within ten (10) Business Days after a Responsible Officer has received notice thereof. Each assignee shall become a party to this Agreement as a Lender by execution of an Assignment Agreement; provided that (I) Administrative Agent shall, unless it otherwise agrees in its sole discretion, receive at the time of each such assignment, from the assigning or assignee Lender, the payment of a non-refundable assignment fee of $3,500, (II) no such transfer or assignment will be effective until recorded by Administrative Agent on the Register pursuant to Section 2.08, and (III) such assignments may be made on a pro rata basis among Commitments and/or Loans (and related Obligations). To the extent of any assignment permitted pursuant to this Section 13.05(b), the assigning Lender shall be relieved of its obligations hereunder with respect to its assigned Commitments and outstanding Loans (provided that such


 
-141- assignment shall not release such Lender of any claims or liabilities that may exist against such Lender at the time of such assignment). At the time of each assignment pursuant to this Section 13.05(b) to a Person which is not already a Lender hereunder, the respective assignee Lender shall, to the extent legally eligible to do so, provide to Borrower and Administrative Agent the appropriate Internal Revenue Service Forms and other information as described in Sections 5.06(b) and 5.06(d), as applicable. To the extent that an assignment of all or any portion of a Lender’s Commitments, Loans and related outstanding Obligations pursuant to Section 2.11, Section 13.04(b)(B) or this Section 13.05(b) would, under the laws in effect at the time of such assignment, result in increased costs under Section 5.01 or 5.03 from those being charged by the respective assigning Lender prior to such assignment, then Borrower shall not be obligated to pay such increased costs (although Borrower, in accordance with and pursuant to the other provisions of this Agreement, shall be obligated to pay any other increased costs of the type described above resulting from Changes in Law after the date of the respective assignment). (c) Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent or prohibit any Lender from pledging or assigning a security interest in its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment of a security interest to a Federal Reserve Bank or other central banking authority. No pledge pursuant to this Section 13.05(c) shall release the transferor Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or permit the pledgee to become a lender hereunder without otherwise complying with Section 13.05(b). (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 13.05 or any other provision of this Agreement, Borrower and its Subsidiaries may, but shall not be required to, purchase (x) outstanding Loans pursuant to the Auction Procedures established for each such purchase in an auction managed by Auction Manager and (y) outstanding Term Loans through open market purchases, subject solely to the following conditions: (i) (x) with respect to any Borrower Loan Purchase pursuant to the Auction Procedures, at the time of the applicable Purchase Notice (as defined in Exhibit N), no Event of Default under Section 11.01(a) or 11.01(b) or, with respect to Borrower, Section 11.01(g) or 11.01(h), has occurred and is continuing or would result therefrom, and (y) with respect to any Borrower Loan Purchase consummated through an open market purchase, at the time of the applicable assignment, no Event of Default under Section 11.01(a) or 11.01(b) or, with respect to Borrower, Section 11.01(g) or 11.01(h) has occurred and is continuing or would result therefrom; (ii) immediately upon any Borrower Loan Purchase, the Loans purchased pursuant thereto shall be cancelled for all purposes and no longer outstanding (and may not be resold, assigned or participated out by Borrower) for all purposes of this Agreement and all other Credit Documents (provided; that such purchases and cancellations shall not constitute prepayments or repayments of the Loans (including, without limitation, pursuant to Section 2.09, Section 2.10 or Article IV) for any purpose hereunder), including, but not limited to (A) the making of, or the application of, any payments to the Lenders under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (B) the making of any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent or waiver under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, (C) the providing of any rights to Borrower as a Lender under this Agreement or any other Credit Document, and (D) the determination of Required Lenders, or for any similar or related purpose, under this Agreement or any other Credit Document; (iii) with respect to each Borrower Loan Purchase, Administrative Agent shall receive (x) if such Borrower Loan Purchase is consummated pursuant to the Auction Procedures, a fully executed and completed Borrower Assignment Agreement effecting the assignment thereof, and (y) if such Borrower Loan Purchase is consummated pursuant to an open market purchase, a fully executed and completed Open Market Assignment and Assumption Agreement effecting the assignment thereof; (iv) with respect to any Borrower Loan Purchase of Revolving Loans under any Revolving Facility (x) there shall occur a corresponding reduction in the Revolving Commitments of each applicable Revolving Lender and (y) after giving effect to such Borrower Loan Purchase, there shall be sufficient aggregate Revolving Commitments among the Revolving Lenders to apply to the aggregate amount of L/C Liabilities outstanding as of such date, unless Borrower shall concurrently with the payment of the


 
-142- purchase price by Borrower for such Revolving Loans, deposit cash collateral in an account with the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.16 in the amount of any such excess L/C Liabilities; (v) open market purchases of Term Loans by Borrower and its Subsidiaries shall not in the aggregate exceed 25% of the sum of the initial aggregate principal amount of the Term Loans on the Closing Date; and (vi) Borrower may not use the proceeds of any Revolving Loan to fund the purchase of outstanding Loans pursuant to this Section 13.05(d). The assignment fee set forth in Section 13.05(b) shall not be applicable to any Borrower Loan Purchase consummated pursuant to this Section 13.05(d). (e) Each Lender who is an Affiliate of Borrower (excluding (x) Borrower and its Subsidiaries and (y) any Debt Fund Affiliate Lenders) (each, an “Affiliate Lender”; it being understood that (x) neither Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries may be Affiliate Lenders and (y) Debt Fund Affiliate Lenders and Affiliate Lenders may be lenders in accordance with this Section 13.05 subject, in the case of Affiliate Lenders, to this Section 13.05(e) and Section 13.05(f)), in connection with any (i) consent (or decision not to consent) to any amendment, modification, waiver, consent or other action with respect to any of the terms of any Credit Document, (ii) other action on any matter related to any Credit Document or (iii) direction to the Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent or any Lender to undertake any action (or refrain from taking any action) with respect to or under any Credit Document, agrees that, except with respect to any amendment, modification, waiver, consent or other action (1) described in clauses (i) through (vi) of Section 13.04(a) or (2) that adversely affects such Affiliate Lender (in its capacity as a Lender) in a disproportionately adverse manner as compared to other Lenders, such Affiliate Lender shall be deemed to have voted its interest as a Lender without discretion in such proportion as the allocation of voting with respect to such matter by Lenders who are not Affiliate Lenders. Each Affiliate Lender hereby irrevocably appoints the Administrative Agent (such appointment being coupled with an interest) as such Affiliate Lender’s attorney-in-fact, with full authority in the place and stead of such Affiliate Lender and in the name of such Affiliate Lender, from time to time in the Administrative Agent’s discretion to take any action and to execute any instrument that the Administrative Agent may deem reasonably necessary to carry out the provisions of this clause (e). (f) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no Affiliate Lender shall have any right to (i) attend (including by telephone) any meeting or discussions (or portion thereof) among the Administrative Agent or any Lender to which representatives of Borrower are not then present, (ii) receive any information or material prepared by Administrative Agent or any Lender or any communication by or among Administrative Agent and/or one or more Lenders, except to the extent such information or materials have been made available to Borrower or its representatives, (iii) make or bring (or participate in, other than as a passive participant in or recipient of its pro rata benefits of) any claim, in its capacity as a Lender, against Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any other Lender with respect to any duties or obligations or alleged duties or obligations of such Agent or any other such Lender under the Credit Documents, (iv) purchase any Term Loan if, immediately after giving effect to such purchase, Affiliate Lenders in the aggregate would own Term Loans with an aggregate principal amount in excess of 25% of the aggregate principal amount of all Term Loans then outstanding or (v) purchase any Revolving Loans or Revolving Credit Commitments. SECTION 13.06. Survival. The obligations of the Credit Parties under Sections 5.01, 5.05, 5.06, 13.03 and 13.20, the obligations of each Guarantor under Section 6.03, and the obligations of the Lenders and Administrative Agent under Sections 5.06 and 12.08, in each case shall survive the repayment of the Loans and the other Obligations and the termination of the Commitments and, in the case of any Lender that may assign any interest in its Commitments, Loans or L/C Interest (and any related Obligations) hereunder, shall (to the extent relating to such time as it was a Lender) survive the making of such assignment, notwithstanding that such assigning Lender may cease to be a “Lender” hereunder. In addition, each representation and warranty made, or deemed to be made by a notice of any extension of credit, herein or pursuant hereto shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the Notes and the making of any extension of credit hereunder, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its

Severability. Wherever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provisions or the remaining provisions of this Agreement. SECTION 13.13. Gaming Laws. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Credit Document, this Agreement and the other Credit Documents are subject to the Gaming Laws and the laws involving the sale, distribution and possession of alcoholic beverages and/or tobacco, as applicable (the “Liquor Laws”). Without limiting the foregoing, Administrative Agent, each other Agent, each Lender and each participant acknowledges that (i) it is the subject of being called forward by any Gaming Authority or any Governmental Authority enforcing the Liquor Laws (the “Liquor Authority”), in each of their discretion, for licensing or a finding of suitability or to file or provide other information, and (ii) all rights, remedies and powers under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, including with respect to Pledged Collateral and the entry into and ownership and operation of the Gaming Facilities, and the possession or control of gaming equipment, alcoholic beverages or a gaming or liquor license, may be exercised only to the extent that the exercise thereof does not violate any applicable provisions of the Gaming Laws and Liquor Laws and only to the extent that required approvals (including prior approvals) are obtained from the requisite Governmental Authorities. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Credit Document, Administrative Agent, each other Agent, each Lender and each participant agrees to cooperate with each Gaming Authority and each Liquor Authority (and, in each case, to be subject to Section 2.11) in connection with the administration of their regulatory jurisdiction over Borrower and the other Credit Parties, including, without limitation, the provision of such documents or other information as may be requested by any such Gaming Authorities and/or Liquor Authorities relating to Administrative Agent, any other Agent, any of the Lenders or participants, Borrower and its Subsidiaries or to the Credit Documents. (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Credit Document, to the extent any provision of this Agreement or any other Credit Document excludes any assets from the scope of the Pledged Collateral, or from any requirement to take any action to make effective or perfect any security interest in favor of Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party in the Pledged Collateral, the representations, warranties and covenants made by Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary in this Agreement with respect to the creation, perfection or priority (as applicable) of the security interest granted in favor of Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party (including, without limitation, Article VIII of this Agreement) shall be deemed not to apply to such assets. (d) The Collateral Agent, Administrative Agent, Secured Parties and their respective successors and assignees are subject to being called forward by the Gaming Authorities, in their discretion, for licensing or findings of suitability in order to remain entitled to the benefits of this Agreement or any other Credit Document.

L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the “Act”), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies Borrower and the Guarantors, which information includes the name and address of Borrower and the Guarantors and other information that will allow such Lender to identify Borrower and the Guarantors in accordance with the Act, and Borrower and the Guarantors agree to provide such information from time to time to any Lender.


 
-146- SECTION 13.15. Judgment Currency. (a) Borrower’s obligations hereunder and under the other Credit Documents to make payments in Dollars (the “Obligation Currency”) shall not be discharged or satisfied by any tender or recovery pursuant to any judgment expressed in or converted into any currency other than the Obligation Currency, except to the extent that such tender or recovery results in the effective receipt by Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent, the respective L/C Lender or the respective Lender of the full amount of the Obligation Currency expressed to be payable to Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent, such L/C Lender or such Lender under this Agreement or the other Credit Documents. If, for the purpose of obtaining or enforcing judgment against Borrower in any court or in any jurisdiction, it becomes necessary to convert into or from any currency other than the Obligation Currency (such other currency being hereinafter referred to as the “Judgment Currency”) an amount due in the Obligation Currency, the conversion shall be made at the Dollar Equivalent thereof and, in the case of other currencies the rate of exchange (as quoted by Administrative Agent or if Administrative Agent does not quote a rate of exchange on such currency, by a known dealer in such currency designated by Administrative Agent) determined, in each case, as of the day on which the judgment is given (such day being hereinafter referred to as the “Judgment Currency Conversion Date”). (b) If there is a change in the rate of exchange prevailing between the Judgment Currency Conversion and the date of actual payment of the amount due by Borrower, Borrower covenants and agrees to pay, or cause to be paid, such additional amounts, if any (but in any event not a lesser amount), as may be necessary to ensure that the amount paid in the Judgment Currency, when converted at the rate of exchange prevailing on the date of payment, will produce the amount of the Obligation Currency which could have been purchased with the amount of Judgment Currency stipulated in the judgment or judicial award at the rate or exchange prevailing on the Judgment Currency Conversion Date. (c) For purposes of determining the Dollar Equivalent or any other rate of exchange for this Section 13.15, such amounts shall include any premium and costs payable in connection with the purchase of the Obligation Currency. SECTION 13.16. Waiver of Claims. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or the other Credit Documents to the contrary, the Credit Parties hereby agree that Borrower shall not acquire any rights as a Lender under this Agreement as a result of any Borrower Loan Purchase and may not make any claim as a Lender against any Agent or any Lender with respect to the duties and obligations of such Agent or Lender pursuant to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents; provided, however, that, for the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing shall not impair Borrower’s ability to make a claim in respect of a breach of the representations or warranties or obligations of the relevant assignor in a Borrower Loan Purchase, including in the standard terms and conditions set forth in the assignment agreement applicable to a Borrower Loan Purchase. SECTION 13.17. No Advisory or Fiduciary Responsibility. In connection with all aspects of each transaction contemplated hereby (including in connection with any amendment, waiver or other modification hereof or of any other Credit Document), Borrower and each other Credit Party acknowledges and agrees, and acknowledges its Affiliates’ understanding, that: (i) (A) the arranging and other services regarding this Agreement provided by the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers and the Lenders are arm’s-length commercial transactions between Borrower, each other Credit Party and their respective Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers and the Lenders, on the other hand, (B) each of Borrower and the other Credit Parties has consulted its own legal, accounting, regulatory and tax advisors to the extent it has deemed appropriate, and (C) Borrower and each other Credit Party is capable of evaluating, and understands and accepts, the terms, risks and conditions of the transactions contemplated hereby and by the other Credit Documents; (ii) (A) the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers and the Lenders is and has been acting solely as a principal and, except as expressly agreed in writing by the relevant parties, has not been, is not, and will not be acting as an advisor, agent or fiduciary for Borrower, any other Credit Party or any of their respective Affiliates, or any other Person and (B) none of the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers or the Lenders has any obligation to Borrower, any other


 
-147- Credit Party or any of their respective Affiliates with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby except those obligations expressly set forth herein and in the other Credit Documents or in other written agreements between the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers or any Lender on one hand and Borrower, any other Credit Party or any of their respective Affiliates on the other hand; and (iii) the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers and the Lenders and their respective Affiliates may be engaged in a broad range of transactions that involve interests that differ from, or conflict with, those of Borrower, the other Credit Parties and their respective Affiliates, and none of the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers or the Lenders has any obligation to disclose any of such interests to Borrower, any other Credit Party or any of their respective Affiliates. Each Credit Party agrees that nothing in the Credit Documents will be deemed to create an advisory, fiduciary or agency relationship or fiduciary or other implied duty between the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers and the Lenders, on the one hand, and such Credit Party, its stockholders or its affiliates, on the other. To the fullest extent permitted by law, each of Borrower and each other Credit Party hereby waives and releases any claims that it may have against the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Arrangers or any Lender with respect to any breach or alleged breach of agency or fiduciary duty in connection with any aspect of any transaction contemplated hereby (other than any agency or fiduciary duty expressly set forth in an any engagement letter referenced in clause (ii)(A)). SECTION 13.18. Lender Action. Each Lender agrees that it shall not take or institute any actions or proceedings, judicial or otherwise, for any right or remedy against any Credit Party or any other obligor under any of the Credit Documents or the Swap Contracts or (with respect to the exercise of rights against the collateral) Cash Management Agreements (including the exercise of any right of setoff, rights on account of any banker’s lien or similar claim or other rights of self-help), or institute any actions or proceedings, or otherwise commence any remedial procedures, with respect to any Collateral or any other property of any such Credit Party, without the prior written consent of Administrative Agent. The provisions of this Section 13.18 are for the sole benefit of the Agents and Lenders and shall not afford any right to, or constitute a defense available to, any Credit Party. SECTION 13.19. Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any Credit Document, the interest paid or agreed to be paid under the Credit Documents (collectively, the “Charges”) shall not exceed the maximum rate of non-usurious interest permitted by applicable Law (the “Maximum Rate”). If any Agent or any Lender shall receive interest in an amount that exceeds the Maximum Rate, the excess interest shall be applied to the principal of the Loans or, if it exceeds such unpaid principal, refunded to Borrower. In determining whether the interest contracted for, charged, or received by an Agent or a Lender exceeds the Maximum Rate, such Person may, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, (a) characterize any payment that is not principal as an expense, fee, or premium rather than interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (c) amortize, prorate, allocate, and spread in equal or unequal parts the total amount of interest throughout the contemplated term of the Obligations hereunder. To the extent permitted by applicable Law, the interest and other Charges that would have been payable in respect of such Loan but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section 13.19 shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to such Lender in respect of other Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender. Thereafter, interest hereunder shall be paid at the rate(s) of interest and in the manner provided in this Agreement, unless and until the rate of interest again exceeds the Maximum Rate, and at that time this Section 13.19 shall again apply. In no event shall the total interest received by any Lender pursuant to the terms hereof exceed the amount that such Lender could lawfully have received had the interest due hereunder been calculated for the full term hereof at the Maximum Rate. If the Maximum Rate is calculated pursuant to this Section 13.19, such interest shall be calculated at a daily rate equal to the Maximum Rate divided by the number of days in the year in which such calculation is made. If, notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 13.19, a court of competent jurisdiction shall finally determine that a Lender has received interest hereunder in excess of the Maximum Rate, Administrative Agent shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, promptly apply such excess in the order specified in this Agreement and thereafter shall refund any excess to Borrower or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise order.


 
-148- SECTION 13.20. Payments Set Aside. To the extent that any payment by or on behalf of Borrower is made to any Agent, any L/C Lender or any Lender, or any Agent, any L/C Lender or any Lender exercises its right of setoff, and such payment or the proceeds of such setoff or any part thereof is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Agent, such L/C Lender or such Lender in its discretion) to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party, in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law or otherwise, then (a) to the extent of such recovery, the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such setoff had not occurred and the Agents’, the L/C Lender’s and the Lenders’ Liens, security interests, rights, powers and remedies under this Agreement and each Credit Document shall continue in full force and effect, and (b) each Lender severally agrees to pay to Administrative Agent upon demand its applicable share of any amount so recovered from or repaid by any Agent or L/C Lender, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such payment is made at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. In such event, each Credit Document shall be automatically reinstated (to the extent that any Credit Document was terminated) and Borrower shall take (and shall cause each other Credit Party to take) such action as may be requested by Administrative Agent, the L/C Lenders and the Lenders to effect such reinstatement.
