         4. Representations and Warranties. Each Borrower and Obligor jointly
and severally represents and warrants to Lender the following, as applicable:

                   4.1. Organization and Qualification. Each of the Borrowers
         and Obligors is duly incorporated or formed, as applicable, validly
         existing, and in good standing under the laws of their respective
         jurisdictions of incorporation or formation, as applicable. Each
         Borrower and Obligor is duly qualified to do business and is in good
         standing as a foreign corporation or other applicable organization in
         all states and jurisdictions in which the failure to be so qualified
         would have a material adverse effect on the financial condition,
         business or properties of such Borrower or Obligor.

                   4.2. Power and Authority. Each Borrower and Obligor are duly
         authorized and empowered to enter, deliver, and perform this Sixteenth
         Amendment. The execution, delivery, and performance of this Sixteenth
         Amendment has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action of
         each of the applicable Borrowers and Obligors. The execution, delivery
         and performance of this Sixteenth Amendment do not and will not (i)
         require any consent or approval of the shareholders of the Borrowers or
         the Obligors; (ii) contravene the charter or by-laws or equivalent
         organizational documents of any of the Borrowers or Obligor; (iii)
         violate or cause any Borrower or Obligor to be in default under, any
         provision of any law, rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment,
         injunction, decree, determination or award in effect having
         applicability to such Borrower or Obligor; (iv) result in a breach of
         or constitute a default under any indenture or loan or credit agreement
         or any other agreement, lease or instrument to which any Borrower or
         Obligor is a party or by which such Borrower's or Obligor's properties
         may be bound or affected, which breach or default is reasonably likely
         to have a material adverse effect on the financial condition, business
         or properties of such Borrower or Obligor; or (v) result in, or
         require, the creation or imposition of any lien (other than the liens
         set forth in Schedule 8.4 to the Loan Agreement) upon or with respect
         to any of the properties now owned or hereafter acquired by any
         Borrower or Obligor.

                   4.3. Legally Enforceable Agreement. This Sixteenth Amendment
         is a legal, valid and binding obligation of each of the Borrowers and
         Obligors and is enforceable against each of the Borrowers and Obligors
         in accordance with the terms hereof subject to bankruptcy,
         reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of
         creditors' rights generally.

                   4.4. Continuous Nature of Representations and Warranties.
         Each Borrower confirms and agrees that, except for the amendments to
         the Loan Agreement provided herein and in the other previously executed
         amendments to the Loan Agreement, (a) all representations and
         warranties contained in the Loan Agreement and in the other Financing
         Agreements (as amended prior to the date hereof and pursuant to this
         Sixteenth Amendment) are on the date hereof true and



                                       3


         correct in all material respects (except with respect to deviations
         therefrom permitted under Article 9 of the Loan Agreement) except to
         the extent that such representations and warranties expressly relate to
         a specific earlier date in which case the Borrowers confirm, reaffirm
         and restate such representations and warranties as of such earlier
         date, (b) all Information Certificates delivered in conjunction with
         the Loan Agreement and the Twelfth Amendment to Loan and Security
         Agreement dated as of July 21, 2005, as the same may be amended and/or
         restated, remain true and correct in all material respects and (c) it
         is unconditionally, absolutely, and jointly and severally liable for
         the punctual and full performance and payment of all Obligations,
         including, without limitation, all termination fees under Section
         12.1(c) of the Loan Agreement, charges, fees, expenses and costs
         (including attorneys' fees and expenses) under the Financing
         Agreements, and that no Borrower has any defenses, counterclaims or
         setoffs with respect to full, complete and timely payment of all
         Obligations.

         5. Acknowledgement of Obligations. Each Obligor, for value received,
hereby consents to the Borrowers' execution and delivery of this Sixteenth
Amendment, and the performance by the Borrowers of their respective agreements
and obligations hereunder. The Borrowers' performance and/or consummation of any
transaction or matter contemplated under this Sixteenth Amendment shall not
limit, restrict, extinguish or otherwise impair any of the Obligors' obligations
to Lender with respect to the Financing Agreements, as applicable. Each Obligor
acknowledges that it is unconditionally liable to Lender for the full and
complete payment of all Obligations, including, without limitation, all charges,
fees, expenses and costs (including attorney's fees and expenses) under the
Financing Agreements and that such Obligor has no defenses, counterclaims or
setoffs with respect to full, complete and timely payment of any and all
Obligations.

         6. Confirmation of Liens. Each Borrower and Obligor acknowledges,
confirms and agrees that the Financing Agreements, as amended hereby, are
effective to grant to Lender duly perfected, valid and enforceable first
priority security interests in and liens on the Collateral described therein,
except for liens referenced in Sections 8.4 and 9.8 and Schedule 8.4 of the Loan
Agreement, and that the locations for such Collateral specified in the Financing
Agreements have not changed except as provided herein or as previously disclosed
to the Lender. Each Borrower and Obligor further acknowledges and agrees that
all Obligations of the Borrowers are and shall be secured by the Collateral.

         7. Miscellaneous. Lender, Borrowers and Obligors acknowledge and agree
that the Security Documents (as defined in the Twelfth Amendment) shall
constitute Financing Agreements under the Loan Agreement. Without limiting
Borrowers' other obligations under the Financing Agreements, Borrowers hereby
agree to pay to Lender all reasonable attorney's fees and costs which have been
incurred or may in the future be incurred by Lender in connection with the
negotiation, preparation, performance and enforcement of this Sixteenth
Amendment and any other documents and agreements prepared and/or reviewed in
connection herewith. The undersigned confirm that the Financing Agreements
remain in full force and effect without amendment or modification



                                       4


of any kind, except for as set forth in this Sixteenth Amendment (and as set
forth in any previously executed amendments to the Loan Agreement). The
Borrowers and Obligors further confirm that no Event of Default or events which
with notice or the passage of time or both would constitute an Event of Default
have occurred and are continuing. The execution and delivery of this Sixteenth
Amendment by Lender shall not be construed as a waiver by Lender of any Event of
Default under the Financing Agreements. This Sixteenth Amendment shall be deemed
to be a Financing Agreement and, together with the other Financing Agreements,
constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject
matter hereof and supersedes all prior dealings, correspondence, conversations
or communications between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.
