(d) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by the Company or any Affiliate prior to the date of any payment due to be made by the Company or any Affiliate hereunder that the Company or such Affiliate will not make such payment to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Company or such Affiliate is making such payment, and the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be required to, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Banks their respective pro rata shares of a corresponding amount. If such payment is not made to the Administrative Agent by the Company or such Affiliate within three Domestic Business Days after such due date, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover, on demand, from each Bank to which any amount which was made available pursuant to the preceding sentence (i) in the case of amounts denominated in United States dollars, such amount with interest thereon at the rate per annum equal to the daily average 35 Federal Funds Effective Rate and (ii) in the case of amounts denominated in Foreign Currencies, such amount with interest thereon at a rate per annum determined by the Administrative Agent to be the cost to it of funding such amount.

The amount of A Revolving Obligations and B Revolving Obligations comprising the Extensions of Credit of any Bank may fluctuate from time to time, but the sum of A Revolving Obligations and B Revolving Obligations of such Bank shall at all times equal the aggregate amount of such Bank's Extensions of Credit. (b) For purposes hereof: (i) the portion of any Loan constituting an "A Revolving Obligation" shall be that portion of such Loan equal to the lesser of (A) the excess, if any, of the amount equal to 15% of Consolidated Net Tangible Assets as shown on the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the most recently completed fiscal year, over the Utilized Secured Debt Amount on such date (without giving effect to such Loan) and (B) the principal amount or face amount, as applicable, of such Loan; (ii) the portion of any Loan constituting a "B Revolving Obligation" shall be that portion, if any, of such Loan equal to the difference between the principal amount or face amount, as applicable, of such Loan and the portion of such Loan constituting the A Revolving Obligation portion thereof, determined on the date such Loan is made; and (iii) the portion of any Extension of Credit of a Bank constituting an "A Revolving Obligation" or a "B Revolving Obligation" shall be equal to such Bank's Percentage of the A Revolving Obligation and the B Revolving Obligation of the applicable Loan. (c) Any Extensions of Credit made by any Bank shall be comprised of A Revolving Obligations to the maximum extent possible. (d) At any time when Extensions of Credit are comprised of both A Revolving Obligations and B Revolving Obligations, any prepayment of any Extension of Credit of any Bank shall be applied first to reduce the portion thereof constituting such Bank's B Revolving Obligations. 36 2.18 INDEMNITY The Company, or if an Affiliate is the borrower, such Affiliate agrees to indemnify each Bank for, and to hold each Bank harmless from, any loss or expense that such Bank may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) default by the Company or such Affiliate in making a borrowing of, conversion into or continuation of Eurocurrency Loans after the Company or such Affiliate has given a notice requesting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (b) default by the Company or such Affiliate in making any prepayment of or conversion from Eurocurrency Loans after the Company or such Affiliate has given a notice thereof in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or (c) the making of a prepayment of Eurocurrency Loans on a day that is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto. Such indemnification may include an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the amount so prepaid, or not so borrowed, converted or continued, for the period from the date of such prepayment or of such failure to borrow, convert or continue to the last day of such Interest Period (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, the Interest Period that would have commenced on the date of such failure) in each case at the applicable rate of interest for such Loans provided for herein (excluding, however, the Eurocurrency Margin included therein, if any) over (ii) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by such Bank) that would have accrued to such Bank on such amount by placing such amount on deposit for a comparable period with leading banks in the interbank eurodollar market. A certificate as to any amounts payable pursuant to this Section submitted to the Company or such Affiliate by any Bank shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. This covenant shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. SECTION 3. LETTERS OF CREDIT 3.1 L/C COMMITMENT (a) Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Issuing Bank, in reliance on the agreements of the other Banks set forth in Section 3.4(a), agrees to issue letters of credit ("Letters of Credit") for the account of the Company or Affiliate on any Domestic Business Day prior to the fifth Domestic Business Day preceding the Termination Date in such form as may be approved from time to time by such Issuing Bank; provided that an Issuing Bank (i) shall have no obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if, after giving effect to such issuance, the L/C Obligations would exceed the L/C Commitment and (ii) may not issue any Letter of Credit if, after giving effect to such issuance, the aggregate amount of Extensions of Credit would exceed the Aggregate Commitments. Each Letter of Credit shall (i) be denominated in United States dollars or a Foreign Currency and (ii) expire no later than the earlier of (x) the first anniversary of its date of issuance and (y) the date that is five Domestic Business Days prior to the Termination Date, provided that any Letter of Credit with a one-year term may provide for the renewal thereof for additional one-year periods (which shall in no event extend beyond the date referred to in clause (y) above). 37 (b) No Issuing Bank shall be obligated to issue any Letter of Credit if such issuance would conflict with, or cause the Issuing Bank or any L/C Participant to exceed any limits imposed by, any applicable Requirement of Law. 3.2 PROCEDURE FOR ISSUANCE OF LETTER OF CREDIT The Company or any Affiliate may from time to time request that a particular Issuing Bank issue a Letter of Credit by delivering to such Issuing Bank at its Domestic Lending Office (with a copy to the Administrative Agent at its Domestic Lending Office) an Application therefor, completed to the satisfaction of such Issuing Bank, and such other certificates, documents and other papers and information as such Issuing Bank may request. Upon receipt of any Application, the Issuing Bank will process such Application and the certificates, documents and other papers and information delivered to it in connection therewith in accordance with its customary procedures and shall promptly issue the Letter of Credit requested thereby (but in no event shall the Issuing Bank be required to issue any Letter of Credit earlier than three Domestic Business Days after its receipt of the Application therefor and all such other certificates, documents and other papers and information relating thereto) by issuing the original of such Letter of Credit to the beneficiary thereof or as otherwise may be agreed to by the Issuing Bank and the Company or Affiliate. The Issuing Bank shall furnish a copy of such Letter of Credit to the Company or any Affiliate promptly following the issuance thereof. The Issuing Bank shall promptly furnish to the Administrative Agent, which shall in turn promptly furnish to the Banks, notice of the issuance of each Letter of Credit (including the amount thereof). 3.3 FEES AND OTHER CHARGES (a) The Company or applicable Affiliate will pay a fee on all outstanding Letters of Credit at a per annum rate equal to the Applicable Margin then in effect with respect to Eurocurrency Loans, shared ratably among the Banks and payable quarterly in arrears on each Fee Payment Date after the issuance date (such fee to be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed). In addition, the Company or applicable Affiliate shall pay to the Issuing Bank for its own account a fronting fee in an amount equal to 0.25% per annum on the undrawn and unexpired amount of each Letter of Credit, payable quarterly in arrears on each Fee Payment Date after the issuance date. (b) In addition to the foregoing fees, the Company or applicable Affiliate shall pay or reimburse the Issuing Bank for such normal and customary costs and expenses as are incurred or charged by such Issuing Bank in issuing, negotiating, effecting payment under, amending or otherwise administering any Letter of Credit. 3.4 L/C PARTICIPATIONS (a) Each Issuing Bank irrevocably agrees to grant and hereby grants to each L/C Participant, and, to induce each Issuing Bank to issue Letters of Credit, each L/C Participant irrevocably agrees to accept and purchase and hereby accepts and purchases from each Issuing Bank, on the terms and conditions set forth below, for such L/C Participant's own account and risk an undivided interest equal to such L/C Participant's Revolving Percentage in each Issuing 38 Bank's obligations and rights under and in respect of each Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank and the amount of each draft paid by such Issuing Bank thereunder. Each L/C Participant unconditionally and irrevocably agrees with each Issuing Bank that, if a draft is paid under any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank for which such Issuing Bank is not reimbursed in full by the Company or any Affiliate in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, (i) if such draft is paid in a Foreign Currency, such amount shall be converted into United States dollars at the Exchange Rate then in effect as determined by the Administrative Agent (and such amount shall thereafter be denominated in United States dollars for all purposes of this Agreement) and (ii) such L/C Participant shall pay to such Issuing Bank upon demand at such Issuing Bank's address for notices specified herein an amount equal to such L/C Participant's Revolving Percentage of the amount of such draft, or any part thereof, as so converted, that is not so reimbursed. (b) If any amount required to be paid by any L/C Participant to any Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 3.4(a) in respect of any unreimbursed portion of any payment made by such Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit is paid to such Issuing Bank within three Domestic Business Days after the date such payment is due, such L/C Participant shall pay to such Issuing Bank on demand an amount equal to the product of (i) such amount, times (ii) the daily average Federal Funds Effective Rate during the period from and including the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such Issuing Bank, times (iii) a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days that elapse during such period and the denominator of which is 360. If any such amount required to be paid by any L/C Participant pursuant to Section 3.4(a) is not made available to the Issuing Bank by such L/C Participant within three Domestic Business Days after the date such payment is due, the Issuing Bank shall be entitled to recover from such L/C Participant, on demand, such amount with interest thereon calculated from such due date at the rate per annum applicable to Base Rate Loans. A certificate of the Issuing Bank submitted to any L/C Participant with respect to any amounts owing under this Section shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. (c) Whenever, at any time after an Issuing Bank has made payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any L/C Participant its pro rata share of such payment in accordance with Section 3.4(a), such Issuing Bank receives any payment related to such Letter of Credit (whether directly from the Company or any Affiliate or otherwise, including proceeds of collateral applied thereto by such Issuing Bank), or any payment of interest on account thereof, such Issuing Bank will distribute to such L/C Participant its pro rata share thereof; provided, however, that in the event that any such payment received by such Issuing Bank shall be required to be returned by such Issuing Bank, such L/C Participant shall return to such Issuing Bank the portion thereof previously distributed by the Issuing Bank to it. 3.5 REIMBURSEMENT OBLIGATION OF THE COMPANY OR AFFILIATE If any draft is paid under any Letter of Credit, the Company or any Affiliate shall reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank for the amount of (a) the draft so paid and (b) any taxes, fees, charges or other costs or expenses incurred by the Issuing Bank in connection with such payment, not later than 12:00 Noon, New York City time, on (i) the Domestic Business Day that the Company or any Affiliate receives notice of such draft, if such notice is received on such day 39 prior to 10:00 A.M., New York City time, or (ii) if clause (i) above does not apply, the Domestic Business Day immediately following the day that the Company or Affiliate receives such notice. Subject to Section 5, such reimbursement by the Company may be made with the proceeds of Loans made under this Agreement. Each such payment shall be made to the applicable Issuing Bank at its address for notices referred to herein in the relevant currency and in immediately available funds. Interest shall be payable on any such amounts from the date on which the relevant draft is paid until payment in full at the rate set forth in (x) until the Domestic Business Day next succeeding the date of the relevant notice, Section 2.14(a)(i) in the case of amounts denominated in United States dollars, and at the rate determined by the Issuing Bank to be the cost to it of funding such amount plus the Eurocurrency Margin in the case of amounts denominated in Foreign Currencies, and (y) thereafter, Section 2.16(a). 3.6 OBLIGATIONS ABSOLUTE The Company and Affiliate's obligations under this Section 3 shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment that the Company or Affiliate may have or have had against such Issuing Bank, any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit or any other Person. The Company and its Affiliates also agree with each Issuing Bank that such Issuing Bank shall not be responsible for, and neither the Company's Reimbursement Obligations nor the Affiliate's Reimbursement Obligations under Section 3.5 shall be affected by, among other things, the validity or genuineness of documents or of any endorsements thereon, even though such documents shall in fact prove to be invalid, fraudulent or forged, or any dispute between or among the Company and its Affiliates and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred or any claims whatsoever of the Company or Affiliate against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit or any such transferee. No Issuing Bank shall be liable for any error, omission, interruption or delay in transmission, dispatch or delivery of any message or advice, however transmitted, in connection with any Letter of Credit, except for errors or omissions found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Bank. The Company and its Affiliates agree that any action taken or omitted by an Issuing Bank under or in connection with any Letter of Credit or the related drafts or documents, if done in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct and in accordance with the standards of care specified in the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of New York, shall be binding on the Company and its Affiliates and shall not result in any liability of such Issuing Bank to the Company or its Affiliates. 3.7 LETTER OF CREDIT PAYMENTS If any draft shall be presented for payment under any Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Company or Affiliate of the date and amount thereof. The responsibility of such Issuing Bank to the Company or Affiliate in connection with any draft presented for payment under any Letter of Credit shall, in addition to any payment obligation expressly provided for in such Letter of Credit, be limited to determining that the documents (including each draft) delivered under such Letter of Credit in connection with such presentment are substantially in conformity with such Letter of Credit. 40 3.8 APPLICATIONS To the extent that any provision of any Application related to any Letter of Credit is inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement shall apply. SECTION 4. GUARANTEE OF LOANS TO AFFILIATES (a) The Company hereby guarantees to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Banks and their affiliates, the due and punctual payment of the principal of and interest on any Loans made to any Affiliate under this Agreement and any other Obligations of any Affiliate to the Administrative Agent or any Bank under this Agreement (including, in respect of any Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Affiliate, the related Reimbursement Obligations and any other obligations of such Affiliate related to such Letter of Credit) or its Accession Memorandum (the "Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations") when and as the same shall become due and payable, whether at maturity, upon declaration or otherwise, according to the terms thereof. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default or Event of Default - Bankruptcy with respect to an Affiliate under this Agreement, the Company shall on behalf of such Affiliate upon demand by the Administrative Agent punctually make any payment due and payable by such Affiliate under this Agreement or its Accession Memorandum, whether at maturity, upon declaration or otherwise; and any such payment shall be treated for the purposes of such Accession Memorandum and this Agreement (other than Section 10.4) as if such payment were made by the Affiliate. (b) The Company hereby agrees that its obligations under this Section 4 shall be irrevocable and unconditional and that the Company shall not have the right to assert any defenses based upon the validity, regularity or enforceability of any Accession Memorandum or this Agreement or any Note, the absence of any attempt to collect from the defaulting Affiliate or other action to enforce the same, the waiver or consent by the Administrative Agent or any Bank with respect to any provisions thereof or hereof (other than with respect to this Section 4), or any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of the Company or of a guarantor. (c) With respect to its obligations under this Section 4, the Company waives filing of claims with a court, trustee or receiver in the event of receivership or bankruptcy of the defaulting Affiliate, diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest or notice with respect to Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations and all demands whatsoever (other than that provided for in subsection (a) above), and covenants that this Guarantee is a continuing guarantee and will not be discharged except by complete performance of the Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations of the defaulting Affiliate and the obligations of the Company under this Guarantee.

(e) The Company's obligations under this Section 4 constitute a guarantee of payment and not of collection merely and shall remain in full force and effect with respect to any Affiliate until the Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations of such Affiliate shall have been paid in full in accordance with the terms of the relevant Accession Memorandum and of this Agreement. If at any time any payment of any of the Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations of an Affiliate is rescinded or must be otherwise restored or returned upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of such Affiliate or otherwise, the Company's obligations hereunder with respect to such payment shall be reinstated at such time as though such payment had not been made. (f) If demand for, or acceleration of the time for, payment by any Affiliate to the Administrative Agent or any Bank of any Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations of such Affiliate is stayed upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, reorganization or proposed compromise or arrangement with creditors of such Affiliate, all such Guaranteed Affiliate Obligations of which payment or performance is stayed that would otherwise be subject to demand for payment or acceleration shall nonetheless be payable by the Company under this Section 4 immediately on demand by the Administrative Agent or such Bank.

All such financial statements, including the related schedules and notes thereto, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP applied consistently throughout the periods involved (except as approved by the aforementioned firm of accountants and disclosed therein). No Group Member has any material Guarantee Obligations, contingent liabilities and liabilities for taxes, or any long term leases or unusual forward or long term commitments, including any interest rate or foreign currency swap or exchange transaction or other obligation in respect of derivatives, that are not reflected in the most recent financial statements referred to in this paragraph. During the period from December 31, 2004 to and including the date hereof there has been no Disposition by any Group Member of any material part of its business or property. (b) The Adjusted Balance Sheet, copies of which have heretofore been furnished to the Banks, has been adjusted to give effect to the consummation of the MOU Transactions (as if such transactions had been consummated on such date) and has been prepared based on the best information available to the Company as of the date of delivery thereof, and presents fairly the estimated financial position of the Company and its consolidated Subsidiaries as at September 30, 2005. 6.2 NO CHANGE Since December 31, 2004, there has been no development or event that has had or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. 6.3 EXISTENCE; COMPLIANCE WITH LAW Each Group Member (a) is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, (b) has the power and authority, and the legal right, to own and operate its property, to lease the property it operates as lessee and to conduct the business in which it is currently engaged, (c) is duly qualified as a foreign corporation or other organization and in good standing under the laws of each jurisdiction where its ownership, lease or operation of property or the conduct of its business requires such qualification, except to 48 the extent that all failures to be duly qualified and in good standing could not, in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect and (d) is in compliance with all Requirements of Law, except to the extent that the failure of any Foreign Subsidiary to be so organized, validly existing or in good standing or the failure of any Group Member to comply with the requirements of clauses (b), (c) or (d) above could not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. 6.4 POWER; AUTHORIZATION; ENFORCEABLE OBLIGATIONS Each Loan Party has the power and authority, and the legal right, to make, deliver and perform the Loan Documents to which it is a party and, in the case of the Company (or any Affiliate borrower), to obtain extensions of credit hereunder. Each Loan Party has taken all necessary organizational action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents to which it is a party and, in the case of the Company (or any Affiliate borrower), to authorize the extensions of credit on the terms and conditions of this Agreement. No consent or authorization of, filing with, notice to or other act by or in respect of, any Governmental Authority or any other Person is required in connection with the extensions of credit hereunder or with the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents, except (i) consents, authorizations, filings and notices described in Schedule 6.4, which consents, authorizations, filings and notices have been obtained or made and are in full force and effect and the consents described in Section 7.10 and (ii) the filings referred to in Section 6.19. Each Loan Document has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of each Loan Party party thereto. This Agreement constitutes, and each other Loan Document upon execution will constitute, a legal, valid and binding obligation of each Loan Party party thereto, enforceable against each such Loan Party in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law). 6.5 NO LEGAL BAR The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the issuance of Letters of Credit, the borrowings hereunder and the use of the proceeds thereof by each Loan Party (a) will not violate any of the organizational documents of such Loan Party, (b) will not violate any other Requirement of Law or any other Contractual Obligation of any Group Member, except to the extent that all such violations could not, in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect and (c) will not result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien on any of their respective properties or revenues pursuant to any Requirement of Law or any such other Contractual Obligation (other than the Liens created by the Security Documents).

Other than a potential adverse decision on the issue described in the first item on Schedule 6.6, the use of Intellectual Property by each Group Member does not infringe on the rights of any Person in any respect that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. 6.10 TAXES Each Group Member has filed or caused to be filed all Federal, state and other material tax returns that are required to be filed and has paid all taxes shown to be due and payable on said returns or on any assessments made against it or any of its property and all other taxes, fees or other charges imposed on it or any of its property by any Governmental Authority (other than any the amount or validity of which are currently being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and with respect to which reserves in conformity with GAAP have been provided on the books of the relevant Group Member) except to the extent the failure to file such tax returns or pay such taxes, fees or other charges could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect; no material tax Lien has been filed, and, to the knowledge of the Company, no claim is being asserted, with respect to any such tax, fee or other charge. 50 6.11 FEDERAL REGULATIONS No part of the proceeds of any Loans, and no other extensions of credit hereunder, will be used (a) for "buying" or "carrying" any "margin stock" within the respective meanings of each of the quoted terms under Regulation U as now and from time to time hereafter in effect for any purpose that violates the provisions of the Regulations of the Federal Reserve Board or (b) for any purpose that violates the provisions of the Regulations of the Federal Reserve Board.

No termination of a Single Employer Plan (other than a standard termination within the meaning of Section 4041(b) of ERISA) has occurred, and no Lien in favor of the PBGC or a Plan has arisen, during such five-year period. Except as disclosed in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004, as of December 31, 2004, the present value of all accrued benefits under each Single Employer Plan (based on those assumptions used to fund such Plans) did not exceed the value of the assets of such Plan allocable to such accrued benefits by a material amount.

SECTION 9. ASSIGNMENT; PARTICIPATIONS 9.1 SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS; PARTICIPATIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that (i) neither the Company nor any Affiliate may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Bank (and any attempted assignment or transfer by the Company or any Affiliate without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Bank may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section. (b) (i) Subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (b)(ii) below, any Bank may assign to one or more assignees (each, an "Assignee") all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans at the time owing to it) with the prior written consent of: 74 (A) the Company (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), provided that no consent of the Company shall be required for an assignment to a Bank, an affiliate of a Bank, an Approved Fund (as defined below) or, if an Event of Default or Event of Default - Bankruptcy under Section 8 has occurred and is continuing, any other Person; (B) the Administrative Agent; and (C) each Issuing Bank. (ii) Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions: (A) except in the case of an assignment to a Bank, an affiliate of a Bank or an Approved Fund or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Bank's Commitments or Loans hereunder, the amount of the Commitments or Loans of the assigning Bank subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than $5,000,000 unless each of the Company and the Administrative Agent otherwise consent, provided that (1) no such consent of the Company shall be required if an Event of Default or an Event of Default - Bankruptcy has occurred under Section 8 has occurred and is continuing and (2) such amounts shall be aggregated in respect of each Bank and its affiliates or Approved Funds, if any; (B) the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500; and (C) the Assignee, if it shall not be a Bank, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an administrative questionnaire. For the purposes of this Section 9.1, "Approved Fund" means any Person (other than a natural person) that is engaged in making, purchasing, holding or investing in bank loans and similar extensions of credit in the ordinary course of its business and that is administered or managed by (a) a Bank, (b) an affiliate of a Bank or (c) an entity or an affiliate of an entity that administers or manages a Bank. (iii) Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (b)(iv) below, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Bank under this Agreement, and the assigning Bank thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Bank shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.13(a), 10.2, 75 10.4 and 12.6). Any assignment or transfer by a Bank of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 9.1 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Bank of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (c) of this Section. (iv) The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as an agent of the Company, shall maintain at one of its offices a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Banks, and the Commitments of, and principal amount of the Loans and L/C Obligations owing to, each Bank pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the "Register"). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, and the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Banks may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Bank hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Company and any Bank, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. (v) Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Bank and an Assignee, the Assignee's completed administrative questionnaire (unless the Assignee shall already be a Bank hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register. No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph. (c) (i) Any Bank may, without the consent of the Company or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a "Participant") in all or a portion of such Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) such Bank's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Bank shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (C) the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the other Banks shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank in connection with such Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement pursuant to which a Bank sells such a participation shall provide that such Bank shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement may provide that such Bank will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver that (1) requires the consent of each Bank directly affected thereby pursuant to Section 12.8 and (2) directly affects such Participant. Subject to paragraph (c)(ii) of this Section, the Company agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.13(a), 10.2, 10.4 and 12.6 to the same extent as if it were a Bank and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 12.8(c) as though it were a Bank, provided such Participant shall be subject to Section 12.8(b) as though it were a Bank. 76 (ii) A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 10.4 or 12.6 than the applicable Bank would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Company's prior written consent. Any Participant that is a Non-U.S. Bank shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.4 unless such Participant complies with Section 10.4(d). (d) Any Bank may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Bank, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Bank from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or Assignee for such Bank as a party hereto. (e) The Company, upon receipt of written notice from the relevant Bank, agrees to issue Notes to any Bank requiring Notes to facilitate transactions of the type described in paragraph (d) above. (f) Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Conduit Bank may assign any or all of the Loans it may have funded hereunder to its designating Bank without the consent of the Company or the Administrative Agent and without regard to the limitations set forth in Section 9.1(b). Each of the Company, each Bank and the Administrative Agent hereby confirms that it will not institute against a Conduit Bank or join any other Person in instituting against a Conduit Bank any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceeding under any state bankruptcy or similar law, for one year and one day after the payment in full of the latest maturing commercial paper note issued by such Conduit Bank; provided, however, that each Bank designating any Conduit Bank hereby agrees to indemnify, save and hold harmless each other party hereto for any loss, cost, damage or expense arising out of its inability to institute such a proceeding against such Conduit Bank during such period of forbearance. SECTION 10. CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES 10.1 BASIS FOR DETERMINING INTEREST RATE INADEQUATE OR UNFAIR The Banks shall have no obligation to make a new Eurocurrency Loan, to extend an outstanding Eurocurrency Loan or to convert an outstanding Loan into a Eurocurrency Loan if the Administrative Agent determines that: (a) by reason of circumstances generally affecting all interbank markets for deposits in the currency in which the Eurocurrency Loan has been requested to be denominated (in the applicable amounts), LIBO Rates for such deposits are not being offered to the Banks for a term equal to any Interest Period for which such new Loan, extended Loan or converted Loan shall be requested by the Company or an Affiliate; 77 (b) based on notice received from the Required Banks, the LIBO Rate will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Banks of maintaining or funding such new Loan, extended Loan or converted Loan as shall be requested by the Company or an Affiliate; (c) deposits in the applicable currency are not generally available, or cannot be obtained by the Banks, in the applicable market (any Foreign Currency affected by the circumstances described in clause (a), (b) or (c) is referred to as an "Affected Foreign Currency"). Upon any such determination, the Administrative Agent shall give telecopy or telephonic notice thereof to the Company and the Banks as soon as practicable. If such notice is given (y) pursuant to clause (a) or (b) of this Section 10.1 in respect of Eurocurrency Loans denominated in United States dollars, then (i) any Eurocurrency Loans denominated in United States dollars requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period shall be made as Base Rate Loans, (ii) any Base Rate Loans that were to have been converted on the first day of such Interest Period to Eurocurrency Loans denominated in United States dollars shall be continued as Base Rate Loans and (iii) any outstanding Eurocurrency Loans denominated in United States dollars shall be converted, on the last day of the then-current Interest Period, to Base Rate Loans and (z) in respect of any Foreign Currency Loans, then (i) any Foreign Currency Loans in an Affected Foreign Currency requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period shall not be made and (ii) any outstanding Foreign Currency Loans in an Affected Foreign Currency shall be due and payable on the first day of such Interest Period. Until such relevant notice has been withdrawn by the Administrative Agent, no further Eurocurrency Loans denominated in United States dollars or Foreign Currency Loans in an Affected Foreign Currency shall be made or continued as such, nor shall the Company have the right to convert Base Rate Loans to Eurocurrency Loans denominated in United States dollars. 10.2 ILLEGALITY (a) If, after the date of this Agreement, the introduction of, or any change in, any applicable law or regulation or in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental, monetary, or regulatory authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof or compliance by any Bank with any request or directive of any such authority shall make it unlawful for such Bank to make, maintain or fund any Loan or issue or participate in any Letter of Credit, such Bank shall give notice thereof to the Company and, if the Loan or Letter of Credit is to an Affiliate, to such Affiliate (in each case with a copy to the Administrative Agent). Before giving any notice pursuant to this Section 10.2, the relevant Bank shall designate a different lending office if such designation would avoid the need for giving such notice and it would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Bank in its reasonable judgment. Upon receipt of such notice the Company shall or, if the Loan or Letter of Credit is to an Affiliate, the Affiliate shall on either (A) the last day of the then-current Interest Period applicable to such Loan or expiration of the Letter of Credit if such Bank may lawfully continue to maintain and fund such Loan or Letter of Credit to such day or (B) not later than the last date such Bank may lawfully continue to fund and maintain such Loan or Letter of Credit, either (i) prepay in full, without premium or penalty, the then outstanding principal amount of each affected Loan, together with accrued interest thereon, (ii) convert such Loan into another category of Loan (which would not be 78 unlawful for the relevant Banks to make) as provided in Section 2.7 or (iii) arrange for termination of the Letter of Credit. (b) Upon any prepayment or conversion of a Loan made pursuant to Section 10.2(a) other than at the end of an Interest Period, the Company or the Affiliate, as applicable, shall reimburse the Bank upon demand for any loss incurred by it as a result of the timing of such prepayment or conversion, in the manner provided in Section 2.18. 10.3 INCREASED COST (a) If (i) Regulation D of the Federal Reserve Board as in effect on the Effective Date ("Regulation D"), (ii) minimum reserve requirements of the Bank of England and/or the Financial Services Authority as in effect on the Effective Date ("Mandatory Cost Rate"), or (iii) after the date hereof, the adoption of any applicable law or regulation, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Bank with any request or directive of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency (a "Regulatory Change"): (A) shall subject any Bank to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to Eurocurrency Loans or its obligation to make Eurocurrency Loans, or shall change the basis of taxation of payments to such Bank of the principal of or interest on Eurocurrency Loans or any other amounts due under this Agreement in respect of Eurocurrency Loans or its obligation to make Eurocurrency Loans (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of such Bank or the Eurodollar Lending Office imposed by the jurisdictions in which such Bank's principal executive office or Eurodollar Lending Office are located); or (B) shall impose, modify or cause to be applicable any reserve (including, without limitation, any imposed by the Federal Reserve Board), special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, such Bank or the Eurodollar Lending Office or shall impose on such Bank (or the Eurodollar Lending Office) or all interbank markets applicable to such Eurocurrency Loans any other condition affecting the Eurocurrency Loans or its obligation to make Eurocurrency Loans; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Bank (or the Eurodollar Lending Office) of making or maintaining any Eurocurrency Loans or issuing or participating in Letters of Credit, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Bank (or the Eurodollar Lending Office) under this Agreement, by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, the Company shall pay or, if such Eurocurrency Loans are to Affiliates, such Affiliates shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank for any such increased cost or reduction incurred or suffered by such Bank from and after the later of (i) the date that is 15 days prior to receipt of notice from such Bank of such costs and (ii) the last date preceding receipt of such notice from such Bank on which interest was due and payable pursuant to Section 2.10 on any such Eurocurrency Loan. Any Bank which provides notice to the 79 Company of increased costs pursuant to this Section 10.3(a) shall also provide a copy of such notice to the Administrative Agent. (b) Without limiting the effect of the foregoing, so long as any Bank shall be required to maintain reserves against "Eurocurrency liabilities" under Regulation D (or, so long as such Bank may be required, by any Mandatory Cost Rate or by reason of any Regulatory Change, to maintain reserves against any other category of liabilities which includes deposits by reference to which the interest rate on Eurocurrency Loans is determined as provided in this Agreement or against any category of extensions of credit or other assets of such Bank which includes any Eurocurrency Loans) (such reserves are collectively called "Reserves") the Company shall pay or, if such Eurocurrency Loans are to Affiliates, such Affiliates shall pay to such Bank an amount (reasonably estimated by such Bank) for each day during each Interest Period for such Eurocurrency Loans equal to the product of the following: (i) the principal amount of each Eurocurrency Loan to which such Interest Period relates; multiplied by (ii) the difference between (A) a fraction, the numerator of which is the LIBO Rate (expressed as a decimal) applicable to such Eurocurrency Loan and the denominator of which is one (1) minus such Bank's Actual Reserve Cost (defined below) (expressed as a decimal) and (B) the LIBO Rate; multiplied by (iii) 1/360. For the purposes of this Section 10.3(b), the "Bank's Actual Reserve Cost" (which shall be reasonably estimated by the relevant Bank) shall be equal to the cost actually incurred by such Bank from time to time during such Interest Period as a result of the requirement that such Bank maintain Reserves with respect to such Eurocurrency Loan. (c) If any Governmental Authority of the jurisdiction of any Foreign Currency (or any other jurisdiction in which the funding operations of any Bank shall be conducted with respect to such Foreign Currency) shall have in effect any reserve, liquid asset or similar requirement with respect to any category of deposits or liabilities customarily used to fund loans in such Foreign Currency, or by reference to which interest rates applicable to loans in such Foreign Currency are determined, and the result of such requirement shall be to increase the cost to such Bank of making or maintaining any Foreign Currency Loan in such Foreign Currency, and such Bank shall deliver to the Company a notice requesting compensation under this paragraph, then the Company will pay or cause the relevant Affiliate to pay to such Bank on each Interest Payment Date with respect to each affected Foreign Currency Loan an amount that will compensate such Bank for such additional cost. (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if, after the date hereof, there shall have occurred any change in national or international financial, political or economic conditions (including the imposition of or any change in exchange controls, but excluding conditions otherwise covered by this Section 10.3) or currency exchange rates which would make it impracticable for the Required Banks to make or maintain Foreign Currency Loans 80 denominated in the relevant currency to, or for the account of, the Company or any Affiliate, then, by written notice to the Company or such Affiliate and to the Administrative Agent: (i) such Bank or Banks may declare that Foreign Currency Loans (in the affected currency or currencies) will not thereafter (for the duration of such unlawfulness) be made by such Bank or Banks hereunder (or be continued for additional Interest Periods), whereupon any request for a Foreign Currency Loan (in the affected currency or currencies) or to continue a Foreign Currency Loan (in the affected currency or currencies), as the case may be, for an additional Interest Period) shall, as to such Bank or Banks only, be of no force and effect, unless such declaration shall be subsequently withdrawn; and (ii) such Bank may require that all outstanding Foreign Currency Loans (in the affected currency or currencies), made by it be converted to Base Rate Loans or Loans denominated in United States dollars, as the case may be (unless repaid by the Company or the relevant Affiliate as described below), in which event all such Foreign Currency Loans (in the affected currency or currencies) shall be converted to Base Rate Loans or Loans denominated in United States dollars, as the case may be, as of the effective date of such notice as provided below and at the Exchange Rate on the date of such conversion or, at the option of the Company or the Affiliate, repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto or, if earlier, the date on which the applicable notice becomes effective. In the event any Bank shall exercise its rights under this paragraph (d), all payments and prepayments of principal that would otherwise have been applied to repay the converted Foreign Currency Loans of such Bank shall instead be applied to repay the Base Rate Loans or Loans denominated in United States dollars, as the case may be, made by such Bank resulting from such conversion. For purposes of Section 10.3(d), a notice to the Company or Affiliate by any Bank shall be effective as to each Foreign Currency Loan made by such Bank, if lawful, on the last day of the Interest Period currently applicable to such Foreign Currency Loan; in all other cases such notice shall be effective on the date of receipt thereof by the Company or Affiliate. (e) Each Bank shall take reasonable steps, including without limitation, the designation of a different Eurodollar Lending Office or Foreign Currency Lending Office (unless it would otherwise be disadvantageous to the Bank in its reasonable judgment) if such steps would avoid the need for or reduce the amount of any payment that otherwise would be due under Section 10.3(a), 10.3(b) or 10.3(c). Any amounts payable by the Company or any Affiliate under Sections 10.3(a), 10.3(b) or 10.3(c) shall be remitted after the end of each Interest Period, within 30 days after submission by the Bank to the Company and such Affiliate (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of a written statement setting forth the amount thereof. (f) From time to time during the term of this Agreement, upon the request of the Company, each Bank shall provide to the Company (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) its best estimate of such Bank's Actual Reserve Cost incurred or to be incurred with respect to Eurocurrency Loans in the principal amounts specified in the Company's request. 81 10.4 TAXES (a) All payments made by the Company or any Affiliate under this Agreement shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any present or future income, stamp or other taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings, now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any Governmental Authority, excluding net income taxes and franchise taxes (imposed in lieu of net income taxes) imposed on the Administrative Agent or any Bank as a result of a present or former connection between the Administrative Agent or such Bank and the jurisdiction of the Governmental Authority imposing such tax or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein (other than any such connection arising solely from the Administrative Agent or such Bank having executed, delivered or performed its obligations or received a payment under, or enforced, this Agreement or any other Loan Document). If any such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings ("Non-Excluded Taxes") or Other Taxes are required to be withheld from any amounts payable to the Administrative Agent or any Bank hereunder, the amounts so payable to the Administrative Agent or such Bank shall be increased to the extent necessary to yield to the Administrative Agent or such Bank (after payment of all Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes) interest or any such other amounts payable hereunder at the rates or in the amounts specified in this Agreement, provided, however, that neither the Company nor any Affiliate shall be required to increase any such amounts payable to any Bank with respect to any Non-Excluded Taxes (i) that are attributable to such Bank's failure to comply with the requirements of paragraph (d) or (e) of this Section or (ii) that are United States withholding taxes imposed on amounts payable to such Bank at the time such Bank becomes a party to this Agreement, except to the extent that such Bank's assignor (if any) was entitled, at the time of assignment, to receive additional amounts from the Company or any Affiliate with respect to such Non-Excluded Taxes pursuant to this paragraph. (b) In addition, each of the Company and the Affiliates shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law. (c) Whenever any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes are payable by the Company or any Affiliate, as promptly as possible thereafter the Company or such Affiliate, as applicable, shall send to the Administrative Agent for its own account or for the account of the relevant Bank, as the case may be, a certified copy of an original official receipt received by the Company showing payment thereof. If any of the Company or any Affiliate fails to pay any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the Administrative Agent the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Company or such Affiliate, as applicable, shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and the Banks for any incremental taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by the Administrative Agent or any Bank as a result of any such failure. (d) Each Bank (or Transferee) that is not a "U.S. Person" as defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code (a "Non-U.S. Bank") shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of a Participant, to the Bank from which the related participation shall have been purchased) two copies of either U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or Form W-8ECI, or, in the case of a Non-U.S. Bank claiming exemption from U.S. 82 federal withholding tax under Section 871(h) or 881(c) of the Code with respect to payments of "portfolio interest", a statement substantially in the form of Exhibit H and a Form W-8BEN, or any subsequent versions thereof or successors thereto, properly completed and duly executed by such Non-U.S. Bank claiming complete exemption from, or a reduced rate of, U.S. federal withholding tax on all payments by the Company under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Such forms shall be delivered by each Non-U.S. Bank on or before the date it becomes a party to this Agreement (or, in the case of any Participant, on or before the date such Participant purchases the related participation). In addition, each Non-U.S. Bank shall deliver such forms promptly upon the obsolescence or invalidity of any form previously delivered by such Non-U.S. Bank. Each Non-U.S. Bank shall promptly notify the Company at any time it determines that it is no longer in a position to provide any previously delivered certificate to the Company (or any other form of certification adopted by the U.S. taxing authorities for such purpose). Notwithstanding any other provision of this paragraph, a Non-U.S. Bank shall not be required to deliver any form pursuant to this paragraph that such Non-U.S. Bank is not legally able to deliver. (e) A Bank that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of non-U.S. withholding tax under the law of the jurisdiction in which the Company or any Affiliate borrower is located, or any treaty to which such jurisdiction is a party, with respect to payments under this Agreement shall deliver to the Company (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at the time or times prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Company or such Affiliate, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate, provided that such Bank is legally entitled to complete, execute and deliver such documentation and in such Bank's judgment such completion, execution or submission would not materially prejudice the legal position of such Bank. (f) If the Administrative Agent or any Bank determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Company or any Affiliate or with respect to which the Company or any Affiliate has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 10.4, it shall pay over such refund to the Company (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Company under this Section 10.4 with respect to the Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Bank and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided, that each of the Company and each Affiliate, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Bank, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Company or such Affiliate (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Bank in the event the Administrative Agent or such Bank is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. This paragraph shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Bank to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes which it deems confidential) to the Company or any other Person. (g) The agreements in this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. 83 10.5 REPLACEMENT OF BANKS. The Company shall be permitted to replace any Bank that (a) requests reimbursement for amounts owing pursuant to Section 10.3 or 10.4, (b) fails to consent to any amendment to this Agreement requested by the Company which requires the consent of all of the Banks and which is consented to by the Required Banks or (c) defaults in its obligation to make Loans hereunder, with a replacement financial institution; provided that (i) such replacement does not conflict with any Requirement of Law, (ii) no Event of Default or Event of Default-Bankruptcy shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such replacement, (iii) prior to any such replacement, such Bank shall have taken no action under Section 10.3(e) or 10.4 so as to eliminate the continued need for payment of amounts owing pursuant to Section 10.3 or 10.4, (iv) the replacement financial institution shall purchase, at par, all Loans and other amounts owing to such replaced Bank on or prior to the date of replacement, (v) to the extent the Company is making a replacement pursuant to clause (b) above, the replacement financial institution shall consent to the requested amendment, (vi) the Company shall be liable to such replaced Bank under Section 2.13(a) if any Eurocurrency Loan owing to such replaced Bank shall be purchased other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto, (vii) the replacement financial institution, if not already a Bank, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (viii) the replaced Bank shall be obligated to make such replacement in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.1 (provided that the Company shall be obligated to pay the registration and processing fee referred to therein), (ix) until such time as such replacement shall be consummated, the Company shall pay all additional amounts (if any) required pursuant to Section 10.3 or 10.4(b), as the case may be, and (x) any such replacement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights that the Company, the Administrative Agent or any other Bank shall have against the replaced Bank. SECTION 11. THE AGENTS 11.1 APPOINTMENT Each Bank hereby irrevocably designates and appoints the Administrative Agent as the agent of such Bank under this Agreement, and each such Bank irrevocably authorizes the Administrative Agent, in such capacity, to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of this Agreement, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary elsewhere in this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein, or any fiduciary relationship with any Bank, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or otherwise exist against the Administrative Agent. 11.2 DELEGATION OF DUTIES The Administrative Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement by or through agents or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable care in consultation with the Company. 84 11.3 EXCULPATORY PROVISIONS Neither any Agent nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates shall be (i) liable for any action lawfully taken or omitted to be taken by it or such person under or in connection with this Agreement (except to the extent that any of the foregoing are found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from its or such person's own gross negligence or willful misconduct) or (ii) responsible in any manner to any of the Banks for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by the Company or any Affiliate or any officer thereof contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by the Agents under or in connection with, this Agreement or for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or for any failure of the Company or any Affiliate to perform its obligations hereunder. The Agents shall not be under any obligation to any Bank to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Agreement, or to inspect the properties, books or records of the Company or any Affiliate. 11.4 RELIANCE BY ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any instrument, writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, telecopy, telex or teletype message, statement, order or other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper person or persons and upon advice and statements of legal counsel (including counsel to the Company or any Affiliate), independent accountants and other experts selected by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may deem and treat the payee of any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes unless a written notice of assignment, negotiation or transfer thereof shall have been filed with the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement unless it shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Required Banks (or, if so specified by this Agreement, all Banks) as it deems appropriate or it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Banks against any and all liability and expense that may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. The Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement in accordance with a request of the Required Banks (or, if so specified by this Agreement, all Banks), and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all the Banks and all future holders of the Loans. 11.5 NOTICE OF DEFAULT The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any default or Event of Default or Event of Default-Bankruptcy unless the Administrative Agent has received notice from a Bank, the Company or an Affiliate referring to this Agreement, describing such default or Event of Default or Event of Default-Bankruptcy and stating that such notice is a "notice of default". In the event that the Administrative Agent receives such a notice, the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Banks. The Administrative Agent shall take such action with respect to such default or Event of Default or 85 Event of Default-Bankruptcy as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Banks (or, if so specified by this Agreement, all Banks); provided that unless and until the Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such default or Event of Default or Event of Default-Bankruptcy as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Banks. 11.6 NON-RELIANCE ON AGENTS AND OTHER BANKS Each Bank expressly acknowledges that neither the Agents nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates have made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by any Agent hereafter taken, including any review of the affairs of the Company or any Affiliate, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by any Agent to any Bank. Each Bank represents to the Agents that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Bank, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company and its Affiliates and made its own decision to make its Loans hereunder and enter into this Agreement. Each Bank also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Bank, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement, and to make such investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company and its Affiliates. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Banks by the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Bank with any credit or other information concerning the business, operations, property, condition (financial or otherwise), prospects or creditworthiness of the Company and its Affiliates that may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates. 11.7 INDEMNIFICATION The Banks agree to indemnify each Agent in its capacity as such (to the extent not reimbursed by the Company and the Affiliates and without limiting the obligation of the Company and the Affiliates to do so), ratably according to their respective Aggregate Exposure Percentages in effect on the date on which indemnification is sought under this Section (or, if indemnification is sought after the date upon which the Commitments shall have terminated and the Loans shall have been paid in full, ratably in accordance with such Aggregate Exposure Percentages immediately prior to such date), from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind whatsoever that may at any time (whether before or after the payment of the Loans) be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Agent in any way relating to or arising out of, the Commitments, the Loans, this Agreement, any documents contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by such Agent under or in connection with any of the foregoing; provided that no Bank shall be liable for 86 the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements that are found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from such Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct. The agreements in this Section shall survive the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. 11.8 AGENT IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY Each Agent and its affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company or an Affiliate as though such Agent were not an Agent. With respect to Loans made or renewed by it, each Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any Bank and may exercise the same as though it were not an Agent, and the terms "Bank" and "Banks" shall include each Agent in its individual capacity. 11.9 SUCCESSOR ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT The Administrative Agent may resign as Administrative Agent upon 45 days' notice to the Banks and the Company. If the Administrative Agent shall resign as Administrative Agent under this Agreement, then the Required Banks shall appoint from among the Banks a successor administrative agent for the Banks, which successor administrative agent shall (unless an Event of Default or Event of Default-Bankruptcy shall have occurred and be continuing) be subject to approval by the Company (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), whereupon such successor administrative agent shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of the Administrative Agent, and the term "Administrative Agent" shall mean such successor administrative agent effective upon such appointment and approval, and the former Administrative Agent's rights, powers and duties as Administrative Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the part of such former Administrative Agent or any of the parties to this Agreement or any holders of the Loans. If no successor administrative agent has accepted appointment as Administrative Agent by the date that is 45 days following a retiring Administrative Agent's notice of resignation, the retiring Administrative Agent's resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective, and the Banks shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Required Banks appoint a successor administrative agent as provided for above. After any retiring Administrative Agent's resignation as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 11 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent under this Agreement. 11.10 SYNDICATION AGENT The Syndication Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities hereunder in its capacity as such. 87 SECTION 12. MISCELLANEOUS 12.1 NOTICES Unless otherwise specified herein all notices, requests, demands or other communications to or from the parties hereto shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given and made, in the case of a letter, upon delivery or three days after deposit in the mail registered first class mail, postage prepaid; and in the case of a facsimile, when a facsimile is sent and receipt is telephonically confirmed; provided, however, that notices pursuant to Section 2.6 or 2.7 or any other notices herein which are given by telephone shall not be effective until received by the party to whom notice is given.

(b) THE COMPANY AND THE AFFILIATES AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND THE BANKS EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY SUBMITS TO THE NON-EXCLUSIVE GENERAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, AND THE APPELLATE COURTS FROM ANY THEREOF, FOR PURPOSES OF ANY ACTION ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY ACCESSION MEMORANDUM, OR REGARDING ANY LOANS MADE HEREUNDER, AND EACH HEREBY AGREES THAT ANY DISPUTES RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY ACCESSION MEMORANDUM OR ANY LOANS MADE HEREUNDER MAY BE RESOLVED IN THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK OR OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK. EACH OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES HEREBY STIPULATES THAT THE VENUES REFERENCED IN THIS SECTION 12.4(B) ARE CONVENIENT AND EACH WAIVES ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE RELATING TO THE VENUE OR CONVENIENCE OF SUCH COURTS. (c) The Secretary of the Company shall be the agent for service of process with regard to all claims hereunder by the Administrative Agent or Banks against any Affiliate. (d) The Company and the Affiliates each hereby waives, to the maximum extent not prohibited by law, any right it may have to claim or recover in any legal action or proceeding referred to in this Section any special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages. 12.5 ENTIRE AGREEMENT This Agreement, together with any Accession Memoranda, constitutes the entire understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes any prior discussions, negotiations, agreements and understandings. The parties hereto acknowledge that the general banking or business conditions or any similar bank lending rules or requirements of any organization not having the force of law, now or hereafter in effect shall not be applicable to this Agreement, the Accession Memoranda or any Loans made hereunder to the Company or any Affiliate by the Banks. 12.6 PAYMENT OF CERTAIN EXPENSES The Company agrees (a) to pay or reimburse the Agents for all their reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with the development, preparation and execution of, and any amendment, supplement or modification to, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and any other documents prepared in connection herewith or therewith, and the consummation and administration of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including 89 the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel to the Agents and filing and recording fees and expenses, with statements with respect to the foregoing to be submitted to the Company prior to the Effective Date (in the case of amounts to be paid on the Effective Date) and from time to time thereafter on a quarterly basis or such other periodic basis as the Agents shall deem appropriate, (b) to pay or reimburse each Bank and each Agent for all its costs and expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement or preservation of any rights under this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any such other documents, including but not limited to the fees and disbursements of counsel (including the allocated fees and expenses of in-house counsel) to each Bank and of counsel to the Agents, (c) to pay, indemnify, and hold each Bank and the Agents harmless from, any and all recording and filing fees and any and all liabilities with respect to, or resulting from any delay in paying, stamp, excise and other taxes, if any, that may be payable or determined to be payable in connection with the execution and delivery of, or consummation or administration of any of the transactions contemplated by, or any amendment, supplement or modification of, or any waiver or consent under or in respect of, this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any such other documents, and (d) to pay, indemnify, and hold each Bank and each Agent and their respective officers, directors, employees, affiliates, agents and controlling persons (each, an "Indemnitee") harmless from and against any and all other liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever with respect to the execution, delivery, enforcement, performance and administration of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any such other documents, including any of the foregoing relating to the use of proceeds of the Loans or the violation of, noncompliance with or liability under, any Environmental Law applicable to the operations of any Group Member or any of the Properties and the reasonable fees and expenses of legal counsel in connection with claims, actions or proceedings by any Indemnitee against any Loan Party under any Loan Document (all the foregoing in this clause (d), collectively, the "Indemnified Liabilities"), provided, that the Company shall have no obligation hereunder to any Indemnitee with respect to Indemnified Liabilities to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities are found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee. Without limiting the foregoing, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, the Company agrees not to assert and to cause its Subsidiaries not to assert, and hereby waives and agrees to cause its Subsidiaries to waive, all rights for contribution or any other rights of recovery with respect to all claims, demands, penalties, fines, liabilities, settlements, damages, costs and expenses of whatever kind or nature, under or related to Environmental Laws, that any of them might have by statute or otherwise against any Indemnitee. All amounts due under this Section 12.6 shall be payable not later than 10 days after written demand therefor. Statements payable by the Company pursuant to this Section 12.6 shall be sent to the Company at the address of the Company set forth in Section 12.1, or to such other Person or address as may be hereafter designated by the Company in a written notice to the Administrative Agent. The agreements in this Section 12.6 shall survive repayment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. 12.7 JUDGMENT CURRENCY If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due from a party borrowing or making Loans hereunder in the currency expressed to be payable 90 hereunder (for purposes of this Section 12.7, the "specified currency") into another currency, the rate of exchange used shall be the Spot Rate on the day that final, nonappealable judgment is given. The obligations of such parties hereunder in respect of any sum due to another party hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than the specified currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the Eurodollar Business Day following receipt by a party of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency such party may in accordance with normal, reasonable banking or foreign exchange procedures purchase the specified currency with such other currency. If the amount of the specified currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to such party, in the specified currency, the party which owed such sum agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the party to which the sum was owed against such loss. 12.8 CHANGES, WAIVERS, ETC.; ADJUSTMENTS (a) Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be amended, supplemented, changed, waived, discharged or terminated orally, but only by a statement in writing signed by the Company and the Required Banks or, with the consent of the Required Banks, the Company and the Administrative Agent; provided, however, that no such waiver and no such amendment, supplement or modification shall (i) forgive the principal amount or extend the final scheduled date of maturity of any Loan, reduce the stated rate of any interest or fee payable hereunder or extend the scheduled date of any payment thereof, or increase the amount or extend the termination date of any Bank's Commitment, or require a Bank to make Loans in any additional currencies (other than those contemplated by this Agreement), in each case without the written consent of each Bank directly affected thereby; (ii) eliminate or reduce the voting rights of any Bank under this Section 12.8 without the written consent of such Bank; (iii) reduce any percentage specified in the definition of Required Banks, consent to the assignment or transfer by the Company of any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, or release the Company from its guarantee obligations under Section 4, subject to the Intercreditor Agreement, release all or substantially all of the Collateral (other than pursuant to the MOU Transactions or as otherwise permitted hereunder and under the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement) or release any significant Subsidiary Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement (other than in connection with the consummation of the MOU Transactions and except as otherwise permitted hereunder and under the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement), in each case without the written consent of all Banks; (iv) add currencies as Foreign Currencies under this Agreement without the written consent of all Banks; (v) amend, modify or waive any provision of Section 11 without the written consent of each Agent; or (vi) amend, modify or waive any provision of Section 3 without the written consent of each Issuing Bank. Any such waiver and any such amendment, supplement or modification shall apply equally to each of the Banks and shall be binding upon the Company, the Affiliates, the Banks, the Agents and all future holders of the Loans. In the case of any waiver, the Company, the Affiliates, the Banks and the Administrative Agent shall be restored to their former position and rights hereunder, and any Default or Event of Default or Event of Default - Bankruptcy waived shall be deemed to be cured and not continuing; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or Event of Default - Bankruptcy, or impair any right consequent thereon. 91 (b) Subject to the Intercreditor Agreement, except to the extent that this Agreement expressly provides for payments to be allocated to a particular Bank, if any Bank (a "Benefitted Bank") shall receive any payment of all or part of the Obligations owing to it in a greater proportion than any such payment to any other Bank, if any, in respect of the Obligations owing to such other Bank, such Benefitted Bank shall purchase for cash from the other Banks a participating interest in such portion of the Obligations owing to each such other Bank as shall be necessary to cause such Benefitted Bank to share the excess payment ratably with each of the Banks; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such Benefitted Bank, such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price returned, to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. (c) In addition to any rights and remedies of the Banks provided by law, each Bank shall have the right, without prior notice to the Company or any Loan Party, any such notice being expressly waived by any Loan Party to the extent permitted by applicable law, upon any amount becoming due and payable by the Company or any Loan Party hereunder (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), to set off and appropriate and apply against such amount any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by such Bank or any Affiliate or any branch or agency thereof to or for the credit or the account of such Loan Party. Each Bank agrees promptly to notify the Company or the applicable Loan Party and the Administrative Agent after any such setoff and application made by such Bank, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application. 12.9 SEVERABILITY If any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall be invalid or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of this Agreement, or the application of such provision to persons or circumstances other than those as to which it is invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby, and each provision of this Agreement shall be valid and enforceable to the extent permitted by law. 12.10 SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. 12.11 COUNTERPARTS This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument. Complete sets of counterparts shall be delivered to the Company, the Administrative Agent and the Banks. 92 12.12 THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES Each of the Affiliates of the Company and each office, branch or affiliate of the Administrative Agent and the Banks which make Loans or issue Letters of Credit hereunder shall be a third party beneficiary of this Agreement. 12.13 ELECTRONIC RECORDING The parties to this Agreement may electronically record any telephone communications with one another relating to any preliminary or final notices of any Borrowing or any extension and conversion of Loans pursuant to Section 2.6 or 2.7.
