$100,000.00 and not less than $1,000,000.00. At the time that each ABR Borrowing is made, such ABR Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of $100,000.00 and not less than $1,000,000.00. Borrowings of more than one Type may be outstanding at the same time.

(d)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Borrower shall not be entitled to request, or to elect to convert or continue, any Borrowing if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto would end after the Maturity Date.

SECTION 2.03 Requests for Borrowings and Approval of Proposed Properties. To request a Borrowing, Lead Borrower (on behalf of the Borrower) shall notify the Agent of such request by telephone (a) in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, not later than 12:00 noon, Boston, Massachusetts time, three (3) Business Days before the date of the proposed Eurodollar Borrowing
or (b) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 12:00 noon, Boston, Massachusetts time, one (1) Business Day before the date of the proposed ABR Borrowing. Each such telephonic Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or telecopy to the Agent of a written Borrowing Request in the form of Exhibit E and a Borrowing Base Certificate,

32


each as attached hereto and hereby made a part hereof and signed by Lead Borrower, on behalf of the Borrower. Each such telephonic and written Borrowing Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:

(a)    the aggregate amount of the requested Borrowing;

(b)
the date of such Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;

(c)
whether such Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurodollar Borrowing;

(d)
in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”; and

(e)
the location and number of the Borrower’s account to which funds are to be disbursed.

If no election as to the Type of Borrowing is specified in the Borrowing Request, then the requested Borrowing shall be an ABR Borrowing. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Eurodollar Borrowing, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration, in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section 2.03, the Agent shall advise each Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Borrower must have complied with Section 5.12 prior to submitting such Borrowing Request if the proceeds of such Borrowing are being used to fund the direct or indirect purchase of a Mortgaged Property.

SECTION 2.04    Funding of Borrowings.

(a)    Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by 12:00 noon, Boston, Massachusetts time, to the account of the Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders. The Agent will make such Loans available to the Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of the Borrower maintained with the Agent in Boston, Massachusetts, or wire transferred to such other account or in such manner as may be designated by the Lead Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request.

(b)    Unless the Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.04(a) and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Agent, then the Agent shall notify the Borrower and such Lender of the funding by the Agent, and the applicable

33


Lender and the Borrower jointly and severally agree to pay to the Agent within three (3) Business Days after demand such corresponding amount (with demand to be first made on such Lender) with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation or (ii) in the case of the Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the corresponding Loan made to the Borrower. If the Borrower and such Lender pay such interest to the Agent for an overlapping period, the Agent shall credit the future interest payments of Borrower by an amount (as calculated by Agent in its reasonable discretion) equal to the interest paid by Borrower for such overlapping period. If such Lender pays such amount to the Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by the Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim the Borrower may have against a Defaulting Lender.

SECTION 2.05    Interest Elections.

(a)Each Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request. Thereafter, the Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a Eurodollar Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section 2.05. The Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.

(b)To make an election pursuant to this Section 2.05, the Lead Borrower shall notify the Agent of such election by telephone by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if the Borrower were requesting a Borrowing of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election. Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by delivery, by hand delivery, telecopy, or email, to the Agent of a written Interest Election Request in the form of a Borrowing Request (with proper election made for an interest rate election only) and signed by the Lead Borrower.

(c)Each telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:

(i)    the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
(ii)    the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;

(iii)    whether the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurodollar Borrowing; and





(iv)    if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurodollar Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”.

(v)    If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurodollar Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.

(d)Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Agent shall advise each Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.

(e)If the Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurodollar Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Eurodollar Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period such Eurodollar Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing. Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the Lead Borrower, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Borrowing may be converted to or continued as a Eurodollar Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, each Eurodollar Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto.

(f)After giving effect to all Borrowings, all conversions of Loans from one Type to the other, and all continuations of Loans as the same Type, there shall not be more than six (6) Interest Periods in effect with respect to the Loans.

SECTION 2.06    Termination, Reduction and Increase of Commitments.

(a)Unless previously terminated by the Agent or Borrower in accordance with this Agreement, the Commitments will terminate on the last day of the Termination Date.

(b)The Borrower may from time to time reduce the unused amount of the Commitments (which shall be deemed to include the aggregate amount of Letter of Credit Liabilities, without duplication), provided that each reduction in the Commitments shall be in an amount that is at least $5,000,000.00 and integrals thereof. The Borrower shall not reduce the Commitments if, after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of the Loans in accordance with Section 2.08, the Principal Obligation would exceed the Borrowing Base Availability. Upon any reduction in the Commitments, the Borrower’s option to increase the Commitments provided in Section 2.06(d) shall terminate.

(d)The Lead Borrower shall notify the Agent of any election to reduce the Commitments under Section 2.06(b) at least three (3) Business Days prior to the effective date of such reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Lead Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.06(c) shall be irrevocable. Any reduction of the Commitments shall be permanent. Each reduction in the Commitments shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments.

35



(e)So long as the Borrower is not then in Default, and the Borrower has not previously decreased the Commitments under Section 2.06(b), the Borrower may, at any time request that the Commitments be increased, so long as (a) each increase is in a minimum amount of $5,000,000.00 and an integral multiple of $5,000,000.00 (or such smaller amounts as the Agent may approve), (b) the aggregate Commitments do not exceed $100,000,000.00 (the “Maximum Commitment”), and (c) the aggregate amount of all such increases do not exceed $40,000,000.00. If the Borrower requests that the total Commitments be increased pursuant to this Section 2.06(c), the Agent shall use its best efforts to obtain increased or additional commitments up to the Maximum Commitment, and to do so the Agent may obtain additional lenders of its choice (and approved by Borrower, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, provided that Borrower shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any proposed lenders that are Competitors or tenants of any Real Property), and without the necessity of approval from any of the Lenders. The Borrower and each other Credit Party shall execute an amendment to this Agreement, additional Notes and other documents as the Agent may reasonably require to evidence the increase of the Commitments, the addition of new projects as Mortgaged Properties, if applicable, and the admission of additional Persons as Lenders, if necessary. No increase in the Commitments shall increase the Letter of Credit Sublimit.

SECTION 2.07    Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.

(a)Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of, and all accrued but unpaid interest on, the Loans on the Maturity Date.

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

(c)The Agent shall maintain accounts in which it shall record (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the Type thereof and the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof. Borrower shall be entitled to rely on the accounts prepared by Agent (in lieu of any accounts maintained by each Lender), and Agent agrees to provide Borrower with statements of such accounts following Borrower’s written request.

(d)The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to Section 2.07(b) or (c) shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein absent manifest error; provided that the failure of any Lender or the Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay the Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
SECTION 2.08    Prepayment of Loans.


36


(a)The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay, without penalty, any Borrowing in whole or in part, subject to prior notice in accordance with Section 2.08(b), and subject to Section 2.13, if applicable.

(b)The Lead Borrower shall notify the Agent by telephone (confirmed by telecopy) of any prepayment hereunder (i) in the case of prepayment of a Eurodollar Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Boston, Massachusetts time, three (3) Business Days before the date of prepayment, or (ii) in the case of prepayment of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Boston, Massachusetts time, one Business Day before the date of prepayment. Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid. Promptly following receipt of any such notice relating to a Borrowing, the Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $100,000 and not less than $500,000.00. Each prepayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in the prepaid Borrowing. Prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.10.

(c)In connection with the prepayment of any Loan, Borrower will pay all accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount prepaid, and, if such prepayment is prior to the expiration of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall also pay all any applicable expenses pursuant to Section 2.13.

(d)Amounts to be applied to the prepayment of Loans shall be applied, first, to reduce outstanding ABR Loans and next, to the extent of any remaining balance, to reduce outstanding Eurodollar Loans. Each such prepayment shall be applied to prepay ratably the Loans of each Lender.

(e)If at any time the Principal Obligation exceeds the then Borrowing Base Availability, then, within one (1) Business Day after such occurrence (i) (except to the extent that any such excess is addressed in the following clause (ii)) the Borrower shall pay such excess to the Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders, and/or (ii) if the amount of such excess exceeds the Principal Obligation attributable to Loans and Reimbursement Obligations plus any other then-due Obligations of the Borrower other than the Stated Amounts of any Letters of Credit, the Borrower shall cash collateralize the Stated Amount of Letters of Credit in the amount of such excess, such that, following any such payment and cash collateralization, no such excess will exist. Any cash collateral so provided shall be treated as if provided under Section 2.20(a).

SECTION 2.09    Fees.

(b)The Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent for the account of each Lender, according to its Applicable Percentage, an unused fee (the “Unused Fee”) based on the amount by which the total Commitments exceed the Principal Obligation (the Unused Amount”), for each day from the Effective Date to, but not including, the Termination Date. The Unused Fee shall accrue at the rate of (i) 0.30% per annum for any day on which the Unused Amount is equal to or greater than fifty percent (50%) of the total Commitments on such day, and (ii) 0.20% per annum for any day on which the Unused Amount is less than fifty percent (50%) of the total Commitments on such day, in each instance calculated daily (based on the number of days

37


elapsed in a 360-day year). Accrued Unused Fees shall be payable in arrears on the first Interest Payment Date after the end of each Calendar Quarter and on the Termination Date.

(c)The Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon in the fee letters executed between the Borrower, KeyBank, Lead Arranger and the Agent.

(d)Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent for the pro rata account of each Lender a letter of credit fee at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin for Eurodollar Loans for each day (while an Event of Default exists to be increased by 4% per annum, at the option of the Agent), times the daily average Stated Amount of each Letter of Credit for the period from and including the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit (x) through and including the date such Letter of Credit expires or is terminated or (y) to but excluding the date such Letter of Credit is drawn in full and is not subject to reinstatement, as the case may be. The fees provided for in the immediately preceding sentence shall be nonrefundable and payable in arrears on (i) each Interest Payment Date, (ii) the Termination Date, and (iii) thereafter from time to time on demand of the Agent. In addition, the Borrowers shall pay to the Agent for its own account and not the account of any Lender, an issuance fee (with such issuance fee being paid to any Lender other than Agent that issues a Letter of Credit hereunder) in respect of each Letter of Credit equal to the greater of (i) $1,000.00 or (ii) the product of (x) one-eighth of one percent (0.125%) and (y) initial Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit. The fees provided for in the immediately preceding sentence shall be nonrefundable and payable upon issuance (or in the case of an extension of the expiration date, on the previous expiration date). Borrower shall pay directly to the Agent from time to time on demand all commissions, charges, costs and expenses in the amounts customarily charged by the Agent from time to time in like circumstances with respect to the issuance of each Letter of Credit, drawings, amendments and other transactions relating thereto.

(e)All fees payable hereunder shall be paid on the dates due, in immediately available funds, to the Agent for distribution, in the case of Unused Fees and letter of credit fees to the Lenders. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances.

SECTION 2.10    Interest.

(a)The Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest for each day outstanding at the Alternate Base Rate for such day plus the Applicable Margin.

(b)The Loans comprising each Eurodollar Borrowing shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Margin.

(d)Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) if any principal of or interest on any Loan or any fee or other amount payable by the Borrower hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (A) in the case of principal or interest, 4% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 2.10, or (B) in the case of any other amount, 4% plus the rate

38


applicable to ABR Loans as provided in Section 2.10(a); and (ii) after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, at the option of the Agent, or if the Agent is directed in writing by the Required Lenders to do so, the Loans and all other amounts payable by the Borrower hereunder shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to 4% plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans from time to time as provided in Section 2.10(a).

(e)Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan and upon termination of the Commitments; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to Section 2.10(c) shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Loan prior to the end of the Availability Period), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of any Eurodollar Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.

(f)All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable Alternate Base Rate, Adjusted LIBO Rate or LIBO Rate shall be determined by the Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error. In the case of any Borrowing, interest shall begin to accrue when Lenders advance the Borrowing, whether such advance is made directly to Borrower or into escrow with the title company that will be issuing a Title Insurance Policy for the Mortgaged Property.

SECTION 2.11    Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Borrowing:

(a)the Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period; or

(b)the Agent determines or is advised by the Required Lenders that the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period; then the Agent shall give notice thereof to the Lead Borrower and the Lenders by telephone or telecopy as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Agent notifies the Lead Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurodollar Borrowing shall be ineffective, and (ii) if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurodollar Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing; provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type of Borrowings, then the other Type of Borrowings shall be permitted. In addition, any pending Borrowing Request for a Eurodollar Loan may be revoked by the Lead Borrower or it shall be deemed a request for an ABR Loan, and each outstanding Eurodollar Loan will automatically, on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto, become an ABR Loan; or

39


(c)at any other time after the date hereof, any Change in Law shall make it unlawful, or any Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over a Lender or its lending office shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender to make or maintain Eurodollar Loans, such Lender shall forthwith give notice of such circumstances to the Agent and the Borrower and thereupon (i) the commitment of the Lenders to make Eurodollar Loans shall forthwith be suspended and (ii) any Eurodollar Loans then outstanding shall be converted automatically to ABR Loans on the last day of each Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Loans or within such earlier period as may be required by Legal Requirements.

SECTION 2.12    Increased Costs.

(a)If any Change in Law shall:

(i)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate) or Agent;

(ii)    subject any Lender or the Agent to any Tax, levy, impost, duty, charge, fee, deduction or withholding of any nature with respect to this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, such Lender’s Commitment or the Loans or any Letter of Credit or participation therein (other than Taxes based upon or measured by the gross receipts, income or profits of such Lender or the Agent or its franchise tax);

(iii)    materially change the basis of taxation (except for changes in taxes on gross receipts, income or profits or its franchise tax) of payments to any Lender of the principal of or the interest on any Loans or any other amounts payable to any Lender under this Agreement (including with respect to any Letter of Credit or participation therein) or the other Loan Documents, or payable to the Agent with respect to Letters of Credit;

(iv)    impose on any Lender or the London interbank market any other condition cost or expense (other than one relating to Excluded Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Eurodollar Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein; and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan, or to increase the cost to such Lender or the Agent of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender of the Agent hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, upon request of such Lender or the Agent the Borrower will pay to such Lender and/or the Agent, as applicable, within fifteen (15) days of any written request by such Lender or the Agent, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Agent for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered, which amounts shall be determined by such Lender and/or

40


the Agent, as applicable, in its sole but reasonable judgment, after good faith and reasonable computation.

(b)If any Lender or the Agent determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or the Agent or any lending office of such Lender or the Agent or such Lender’s or the Agent’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or Agent’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or the Agent’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by the Agent, to a level below that which such Lender or the Agent or such Lender’s or the Agent’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or the Agent’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or the Agent’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time the Borrower will pay to such Lender and/or the Agent, as the case may be, within fifteen (15) days of any written request by such Lender, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender and/or the Agent or such Lender’s or the Agent’s holding company for any such reduction suffered, which amounts shall be determined by such Lender and/or the Agent in its sole but reasonable judgment, after good faith and reasonable computation.

(c)A certificate of a Lender and/or the Agent setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender, the Agent or their respective holding companies, as the case may be, as specified in Section 2.12(a) or (b) shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender and/or the Agent, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within fifteen (15) days after receipt thereof.

(d)Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or the Agent to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 2.12 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or the Agent’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender or the Agent pursuant to this Section 2.12 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender or the Agent notifies the Lead Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or the Agent’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.

SECTION 2.13 Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice may be revoked under Section 2.08(b)), or (d) the assignment of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Lead Borrower pursuant to Section 2.16, then, in any such event, the Borrower shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event. In the case of a Eurodollar Loan, such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be

41


deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate that would have been applicable to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest which would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which such Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for dollar deposits of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the Eurodollar market. A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.

SECTION 2.14    Taxes.

(a)Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that if the Borrower shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) the Agent or Lender (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(b)In addition, the Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(c)The Borrower shall indemnify the Agent and each Lender, within 10 days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower hereunder (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.14) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender or by the Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d)As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority, the Borrower shall deliver to the Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Agent.


42


(e)Any Foreign Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax under the law of the jurisdiction in which the Borrower is located, or any treaty to which such jurisdiction is a party, with respect to payments under this Agreement shall deliver to the Lead Borrower (with a copy to the Agent), at the time or times prescribed by applicable law, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Lead Borrower as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate.
SECTION 2.15    Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs.

(a)The Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or of amounts payable under Section 2.12, 2.13, 2.14, 9.03, or otherwise) prior to 1:00 p.m., Boston, Massachusetts time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Agent at its main offices in Cleveland, Ohio, except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14 and 9.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. If the Agent receives a payment for the account of a Lender prior to 1:00 p.m., Boston, Massachusetts time, such payment must be delivered to the Lender on the same day and if it is not so delivered due to the fault of the Agent, the Agent shall pay to the Lender entitled to the payment interest thereon for each day after payment should have been received by the Lender pursuant hereto until the Lender receives payment, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. Further, if there is no corresponding day for a payment in the given calendar month (i.e., there is no February 30th), the payment shall be due on the last Business Day of such calendar month. All payments hereunder shall be made in Dollars.

(b)If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied
(i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal then due to such parties.

(c)If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Loans or other obligations hereunder resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans and accrued interest thereon or other such obligations greater than its pro rata share thereof as provided herein, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall (i) notify the Agent of such fact, and (ii) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and such other obligations of the other Lenders, or make such other adjustments as shall be equitable, so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Loans and other amounts owing them; provided that:

43



(i)    if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest; and

(ii)
the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to
(x) any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including the application of funds arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender), or (y) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in Letter of Credit Liabilities to any assignee or participant, other than to the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply).

(d)Each Credit Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against each Credit Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of each Credit Party in the amount of such participation.

(e)Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the Lead Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders the amount due. In such event, if the Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders severally agrees to repay to the Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Agent, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate.

(f)If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to 2.04(b) or 2.15(d), then the Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.

SECTION 2.16 Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

(a)Each Lender will notify the Lead Borrower of any event occurring after the date of this Agreement which will entitle such Person to compensation pursuant to Sections 2.10 and 2.12 as promptly as practicable after it obtains knowledge thereof and determines to request such compensation, provided that such Person shall not be liable for the failure to provide such notice. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.10, or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any such Person or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.12, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to avoid or minimize the amounts payable, including, without limitation, the designation of a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or the assignment of its rights

44


and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.10 or 2.12, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable and documented costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

(a)If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.12, or if the Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14, or if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 2.12 or Section 2.14) and obligations under this Agreement and the Loan Documents to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) the Borrower shall have paid to the Agent the assignment fee specified in Section 9.04, (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and participations in Letter of Credit Liabilities, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (including any amounts under Section 2.13) from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts), (iii) such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments, and (iv) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

SECTION 2.17 Defaulting Lenders.

(b)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements:

(i)    Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Required Lenders.

(ii)    Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VII or otherwise) or received by the Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 9.08 shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Agent hereunder (including with respect to Letters of Credit participations); second, if so determined by the Agent, to be held as cash collateral for the Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender; third, as the Lead

45


Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Agent; fourth, if so determined by the Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement and (y) cash collateralize the future Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement; fifth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders or the Agent as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender or the Agent against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; sixth, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and seventh, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or Letter of Credit participations in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the applicable conditions set forth in Sections 4.01 and 4.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and Letter of Credit participation payments owed to, all Non- Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or Letter of Credit participation payments owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letter of Credit Liabilities are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments without giving effect to Section 2.17(a)(v). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this Section 2.17(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.

(iii)    No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any fees hereunder for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender), other than Letter of Credit fees for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to its Applicable Percentage of the Stated Amount of Letters of Credit for which it has provided cash collateral pursuant to Section 2.21.

(iv)    With respect to any fee not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iii) above, the Borrower shall (x) pay to each Non-Defaulting Lender that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participation in Letter of Credit Liabilities that has been reallocated to such Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (v) below, (y) pay to Agent the amount of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to

46


Agent’s Fronting Exposure to such Defaulting Lender, and (z) not be required to pay the remaining amount of any such fee.

(v)    All or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s participation in Letter of Credit Liabilities shall be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment) but only to the extent that (x) the applicable conditions set forth in Sections 4.01 and 4.02 are satisfied at the time of such reallocation (and, unless the Borrower shall have otherwise notified the Agent at such time, the Borrower shall be deemed to have represented and warranted that such conditions are satisfied at such time), and (y) such reallocation does not cause the aggregate Revolving Credit Exposure of any Non-Defaulting Lender to exceed such Non-Defaulting Lender’s Commitment. No reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a Non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.
(vi)    If the reallocation described in clause (v) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrower shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under law, cash collateralize the Agent’s Fronting Exposure in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.21.

(b)If the Borrowers and the Agent agree in writing in their sole discretion (with no consent required from the Borrowers if any Default or Event of Default exists) that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit to be held pro rata by the Lenders in accordance with the Commitments (without giving effect to Section 2.17(a)(v)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.

(c)So long as any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Agent shall not be required to issue, extend, renew or increase any Letter of Credit unless it is satisfied that it will have no Fronting Exposure after giving effect thereto.

SECTION 2.18 Existing Credit Agreement Loans. On the Effective Date, the Existing Credit Agreement Loans shall be deemed to be converted to Eurodollar Loans having an Interest Period of one (1) month commencing on the Effective Date. The Borrowers shall pay to the Agent any amounts which might be due and payable pursuant to Section 2.13(b) as a result of such deemed conversion. The Existing Credit Agreement Loans and all accrued and unpaid

47


interest thereon shall be due and payable at the same time as all other payments of principal and interest hereunder.



SECTION 2.19    Letters of Credit.

(a)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, agrees to issue for the account of any one or more of the Borrowers during the period from and including the Effective Date to, but excluding, the date 30 days prior to the Maturity Date one or more letters of credit (each a “Letter of Credit”); provided, however that after giving effect to the issuance of any Letter of Credit: (i) the Principal Obligation will not exceed the Borrowing Base Availability; (ii) the Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender shall not exceed such Lender’s Commitment; and (iii) the Letter of Credit Liabilities will not exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit. The initial Stated Amount of each Letter of Credit shall be at least $100,000.00.

(b)At the time of issuance, renewal or increase, the amount, form, terms and conditions of each Letter of Credit, and of any drafts or acceptances thereunder, shall be subject to the reasonable approval by the Agent and the Lead Borrower. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event may the expiration date of any Letter of Credit extend beyond the earlier of (i) the date one year from its date of issuance or (ii) the Maturity Date; provided, however, a Letter of Credit may contain a provision providing for the automatic extension of the expiration date in the absence of a notice of non-renewal from the Agent but in no event shall any such provision permit the extension of the expiration date of such Letter of Credit beyond the Maturity Date unless the Agent and all of the Lenders have approved such expiration date.

(c)The Lead Borrower shall give the Agent written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) at least 5 Business Days prior to the requested date of issuance of a Letter of Credit, such notice to describe in reasonable detail the proposed terms of such Letter of Credit and the nature of the transactions or obligations proposed to be supported by such Letter of Credit, and in any event shall set forth with respect to such Letter of Credit the proposed (i) Stated Amount, (ii) beneficiary, and (iii) expiration date. The Lead Borrower shall also execute and deliver such customary letter of credit application forms as requested from time to time by the Agent. Together with the notice to the Agent as specified immediately above, the Lead Borrower shall deliver to the Agent a completed, current Borrowing Base Certificate. Provided the Lead Borrower has given the notice prescribed by the first sentence of this subsection and subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the satisfaction of any applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article IV, the Agent shall issue the requested Letter of Credit on the requested date of issuance for the benefit of the stipulated beneficiary. Upon the written request of the Lead Borrower, the Agent shall deliver to the Lead Borrower a copy of each issued Letter of Credit within a reasonable time after the date of issuance thereof. To the extent any term of a Letter of Credit Document is inconsistent with a term of any Loan Document, the term of such Loan Document shall control.


48


(d)Upon receipt by the Agent from the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of any demand for payment under such Letter of Credit, the Agent shall promptly notify the Lead Borrower of the amount to be paid by the Agent as a result of such demand and the date on which payment is to be made by the Agent to such beneficiary in respect of such demand; provided, however, the Agent’s failure to give, or delay in giving, such notice shall not discharge the Borrowers in any respect from the applicable Reimbursement Obligation. The Borrowers hereby unconditionally and irrevocably agree to pay and reimburse the Agent for the amount of each demand for payment under such Letter of Credit on or prior to the date on which payment is to be made by the Agent to the beneficiary thereunder, without presentment, demand, protest or other formalities of any kind (other than notice as provided in this subsection). Upon receipt by the Agent of any payment in respect of any Reimbursement Obligation, the Agent shall promptly pay to each Lender that has acquired a participation therein under the second sentence of Section 2.19(j) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such payment.

(f)Upon its receipt of a notice referred to in the immediately preceding subsection (d), the Lead Borrower shall advise the Agent whether or not the Borrowers intend to borrow hereunder to finance its obligation to reimburse the Agent for the amount of the related demand for payment and, if they do, the Lead Borrower shall submit a timely request for such borrowing as provided in the applicable provisions of this Agreement. If the Lead Borrower fails to so advise the Agent, or if the Borrowers fail to reimburse the Agent for a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit by the date of such payment, then (i) if the applicable conditions contained in Article IV would permit the making of Loans, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have requested a borrowing of Loans in an amount equal to the unpaid Reimbursement Obligation and the Agent shall give each Lender prompt notice of the amount of the Loan to be made available to the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. or (ii) if such conditions would not permit the making of Loans, the provisions of subsection (j) of this Section shall apply. The limitations of Section 2.02(c) shall not apply to any borrowing of Loans under this subsection.

(g)Upon the issuance by the Agent of any Letter of Credit and until such Letter of Credit shall have expired or been terminated, the Commitment of each Lender shall be deemed to be utilized for all purposes of this Agreement in an amount equal to the product of (i) such Lender’s Applicable Percentage and (ii) the sum of (A) the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit plus (B) any related Reimbursement Obligations then outstanding.

(a)In examining documents presented in connection with drawings under Letters of Credit and making payments under Letters of Credit against such documents, the Agent shall only be required to use the same standard of care as it uses in connection with examining documents presented in connection with drawings under letters of credit in which it has not sold participations and making payments under such letters of credit. The Borrowers assume all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, neither the Agent nor any of the Lenders shall be responsible for, and the Borrowers’ obligations in respect of the Letters of Credit shall not be affected in any manner by, (i) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effects of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for and issuance of or any drawing honored under any Letter of Credit even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate,

49


fraudulent or forged; (ii) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any Letter of Credit, or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) failure of the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit to comply fully with conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telex, telecopy or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any Letter of Credit, or of the proceeds thereof; (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of any drawing under any Letter of Credit; or (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Agent or the Lenders. None of the above shall affect, impair or prevent the vesting of any of the Agent’s or any Lender’s rights or powers hereunder. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Agent under or in connection with any Letter of Credit, if taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment), shall not create against the Agent or any Lender any liability to the Borrowers or any Lender. In this regard, the obligation of the Borrowers to reimburse the Agent for any drawing made under any Letter of Credit, and to repay any Loan made pursuant to the second sentence of the preceding subsection (e), shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any other applicable Letter of Credit Document under all circumstances whatsoever, including without limitation, the following circumstances: (A) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit Document or any term or provisions therein; (B) any amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from all or any of the Letter of Credit Documents; (C) the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right which any Borrower may have at any time against the Agent, any Lender, any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or in the Letter of Credit Documents or any unrelated transaction; (D) any breach of contract or dispute between any Borrower, the Agent, any Lender or any other Person; (E) any demand, statement or any other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein or made in connection therewith being untrue or inaccurate in any respect whatsoever; (F) any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; (G) payment by the Agent under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate which does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and (H) any other act, omission to act, delay or circumstance whatsoever that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable defense to or discharge of the Borrowers’ Reimbursement Obligations.

(h)The issuance by the Agent of any amendment, supplement or other modification to any Letter of Credit shall be subject to the same conditions applicable under this Agreement to the issuance of new Letters of Credit (including, without limitation, that the request therefor be made through the Agent), and no such amendment, supplement or other modification shall be issued unless either (i) the respective Letter of Credit affected thereby would have complied with such conditions had it originally been issued hereunder in such amended, supplemented or modified form or (ii) the Requisite Lenders (or all of the Lenders if required by Section 9.02) shall have consented thereto. In connection with any such amendment,

50


supplement or other modification, the Borrowers shall pay the fees, if any, payable under the last sentence of Section 2.09(c).

(i)Immediately upon the issuance by the Agent of any Letter of Credit each Lender shall be deemed to have irrevocably and unconditionally purchased and received from the Agent, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation to the extent of such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the liability of the Agent with respect to such Letter of Credit, and each Lender thereby shall absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably assume, as primary obligor and not as surety, and shall be unconditionally obligated to the Agent to pay and discharge when due, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the Agent’s liability under such Letter of Credit. In addition, upon the making of each payment by a Lender to the Agent in respect of any Letter of Credit pursuant to the immediately following subsection (j), such Lender shall, automatically and without any further action on the part of the Agent or such Lender, acquire (i) a participation in an amount equal to such payment in the Reimbursement Obligation owing to the Agent by the Borrowers in respect of such Letter of Credit and (ii) a participation in a percentage equal to such Lender’s Applicable Percentage in any interest or other amounts payable by the Borrowers in respect of such Reimbursement Obligation (other than the fees payable solely to the Agent pursuant to Section 2.09(c)). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of a default in any Lender’s obligations to fund under this Agreement exists or any Lender is at such time a Defaulting Lender, the Agent shall have the right, but not the obligation, to refuse to issue any Letter of Credit unless the Agent has entered into satisfactory arrangements with the Borrowers and/or such Defaulting Lender to eliminate the Agent’s risk with respect to such Defaulting Lender.

(k)Each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Agent on demand in immediately available funds in Dollars the amount of such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of each drawing paid by the Agent under each Letter of Credit to the extent such amount is not reimbursed by the Borrowers pursuant to Section 2.19(d); provided, however, that in respect of any drawing under any Letter of Credit, the maximum amount that any Lender shall be required to fund, whether as a Loan or as a participation, shall not exceed such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such drawing. If the notice referenced in the second sentence of Section 2.19(e) is received by a Lender not later than 11:00 a.m., then such Lender shall make such payment available to the Agent not later than 2:00 p.m. on the date of demand therefor; otherwise, such payment shall be made available to the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. on the next succeeding Business Day. The obligation of each Lender to make such payments to the Agent under this subsection, and the Agent’s right to receive the same, shall be absolute, irrevocable and unconditional and shall not be affected in any way by any circumstance whatsoever, including without limitation, (i) the failure of any other Lender to make its payment under this subsection, (ii) the financial condition of any Borrower or any other Credit Party, (iii) the existence of any Default or Event of Default, or (iv) the termination of the Commitments. Each such payment to the Agent shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or deduction whatsoever.

(l)The Agent shall periodically deliver to the Lenders information setting forth the Stated Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit. Other than as set forth in this subsection, the Agent shall have no duty to notify the Lenders regarding the issuance or other matters regarding Letters of Credit issued hereunder. The failure of the Agent to perform its

51


requirements under this subsection shall not relieve any Lender from its obligations under Section 2.19(j).
SECTION 2.20 Expiration or Maturity Date of Letters of Credit Past Termination Date.

(a)If on the Termination Date there are any Letters of Credit outstanding hereunder (excluding any Letters of Credit for which cash collateral has been provided as provided herein), the Borrowers shall, on such date, pay to the Agent an amount of money equal to the Stated Amount of such Letter(s) of Credit for deposit into the Collateral Account.

(b)As collateral security for the prompt payment in full when due of all Letter of Credit Liabilities, the Borrowers hereby pledge and grant to the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Agent and the Lenders as provided herein, a security interest in all of their respective right, title and interest in and to the Collateral Account and the balances from time to time in the Collateral Account (including the investments and reinvestments therein provided for below). The balances from time to time in the Collateral Account shall not constitute payment of any Letter of Credit Liabilities until applied by the Agent as provided herein. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, funds held in the Collateral Account shall be subject to withdrawal only as provided in this Section.

(c)Amounts on deposit in the Collateral Account shall be invested and reinvested by the Agent in such cash equivalents as the Agent shall determine in its sole discretion. All such investments and reinvestments shall be held in the name of and be under the sole dominion and control of the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Lenders (but owned by Lead Borrower for tax purposes). The Agent shall exercise reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any funds held in the Collateral Account and shall be deemed to have exercised such care if such funds are accorded treatment substantially equivalent to that which the Agent accords other funds deposited with the Agent, it being understood that the Agent shall not have any responsibility for taking any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties with respect to any funds held in the Collateral Account.
(d)If a drawing pursuant to any Letter of Credit occurs on or prior to the expiration date of such Letter of Credit, the Borrowers and the Lenders authorize the Agent to use the monies deposited in the Collateral Account and proceeds thereof to make payment to the beneficiary with respect to such drawing or the payee with respect to such presentment.

(e)If an Event of Default exists, the Requisite Lenders may, in their discretion, at any time and from time to time, instruct the Agent to liquidate any such investments and reinvestments and apply proceeds thereof to the Obligations in accordance with Section 7.03.

(f)So long as no Default or Event of Default exists, and to the extent amounts on deposit in or credited to the Collateral Account exceed the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities then due and owing, the Agent shall, from time to time, at the request of the Borrowers, deliver to the Borrowers within 10 Business Days after the Agent’s receipt of such request from the Borrowers, against receipt but without any recourse, warranty or representation whatsoever, such amount of the credit balances in the Collateral Account as exceeds the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities at such time.

52



(g)The Borrowers shall pay to the Agent from time to time such fees as the Agent normally charges for similar services in connection with the Agent’s administration of the Collateral Account and investments and reinvestments of funds therein.

SECTION 2.21 Cash Collateral.

(a)At any time that there shall exist a Defaulting Lender, within one (1) Business Day following the written request of the Agent the Borrower shall cash collateralize the Agent’s Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender (determined after giving effect to Section 2.17(a)(v) and any cash collateral provided by such Defaulting Lender) in an amount not less than the amount of such Fronting Exposure. Any such cash collateral shall be maintained in the Collateral Account, subject to Section 2.20(c).

(b)The Borrower, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to the Agent, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash collateral as security for the Defaulting Lenders’ obligation to fund participations in respect of Letter of Credit Liabilities, to be applied pursuant to clause (c) below. If at any time the Agent determines that cash collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Agent as herein provided, or that the total amount of such cash collateral is less than the Fronting Exposure, the Borrower will, promptly upon demand by the Agent, pay or provide to the Agent additional cash collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (after giving effect to any cash collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).

(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, cash collateral provided under this Section or Section 2.17 in respect of Letters of Credit shall be applied to the satisfaction of the Defaulting Lender’s obligation to fund participations in respect of Letter of Credit Liabilities (including, as to cash collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) for which the cash collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein.

(d)Cash collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce any Fronting Exposure shall no longer be required to be held as cash collateral pursuant to this Section following (i) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender), or (ii) the determination by the Agent that there exists excess cash collateral; provided that, subject to Section 2.17 the Person providing cash collateral and the Agent may agree that cash collateral shall be held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations and provided further that to the extent that such cash collateral was provided by the Borrower, such cash collateral shall remain subject to the security interest granted pursuant to the Loan Documents.

ARTICLE III. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
The Credit Parties represent and warrant to the Lenders and the Agent that:

53



SECTION 3.01 Organization; Powers.

(ii)    A boiler and machinery insurance policy covering loss or damage to all portions of the Mortgaged Property comprised of air-conditioning and heating systems, other pressure vessels, machinery, boilers or high pressure piping.

(iii)    An all-risk policy of insurance covering loss of earnings and/or rents from the Mortgaged Property in the event that the Mortgaged Property is not available for use or occupancy due to casualty, damage or destruction required to be covered by the policies of insurance described in (i) and (ii) above.

(iv)    Commercial general liability, auto liability, umbrella or excess liability and worker’s compensation insurance against claims for bodily injury, death or property damage occurring on, in or about the Mortgaged Property in an amount and containing terms acceptable to the Agent.

(v)    Such other insurance against other insurable hazards, risks or casualties which at the time are commonly insured against in the case of owners and premises similarly situated, due regard being given to the financial condition of the Borrower, the height and type of the Mortgaged Property, its construction, location, use and occupancy.

(vi)    All required insurance will be written on forms acceptable to the Agent and by companies having a Best’s Insurance Guide Rating of not less than A or A+ (subject to the requirements of any Lease) and which are otherwise acceptable to the Agent, and such insurance (other than third party liability insurance) shall be written or endorsed so that all losses are payable to the Agent, as Agent for the Lenders. The original policies evidencing such insurance shall be delivered by the Borrower to the Agent and held by the Agent, unless Agent expressly consents to accept insurance certificates instead. Each such policy shall expressly prohibit cancellation or modification of insurance without thirty (30) days’ written notice to the Agent. The Borrower agrees to furnish (only to the extent available in the event such premiums are paid directly by tenants) due proof of payment of the premiums for all such insurance to Agent promptly after each such payment is made and in any case at least fifteen (15) days before payment becomes delinquent.

(c)Except as may be required under the terms of any Approved Lease, all net proceeds of insurance with respect to a Mortgaged Property shall be paid to Agent and, at Agent’s option, be applied to Borrower’s Obligations or released, in whole or in part, to pay for the actual cost of repair, restoration, rebuilding or replacement (collectively, “Cost to Repair”). If the Cost

66


to Repair does not exceed twenty percent (20%) of the Borrowing Base Pool Value attributable to the subject Mortgaged Property, provided no Event of Default is then in existence, Agent shall release so much of the insurance proceeds as may be required to pay for the actual Cost to Repair in accordance with and subject to the provisions of Section 5.06(d).

(d)If Agent elects or is required to release insurance proceeds, Agent may impose (subject to the requirements of any Approved Lease), reasonable conditions on such release which shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

(i)    Prior written approval by Agent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed of plans, specifications, cost estimates, contracts and bonds for the restoration or repair of the loss or damage;

(ii)    Waivers of lien, architect’s certificates, contractor’s sworn statements and other evidence of costs, payments and completion as Agent may reasonably require;
(iii)    If the Cost to Repair does not exceed $500,000.00, the funds to pay therefor shall be released to Borrower. Otherwise, funds shall be released upon final completion of the Repair Work, unless Borrower requests earlier funding, in which event partial monthly disbursements equal to the value of the work completed (less applicable retainage) shall be made prior to final completion of the repair, restoration or replacement and the balance of the disbursements shall be made upon full completion and the receipt by Agent of satisfactory evidence of payment and release of all liens;

(iv)    Determination by Agent in its reasonable discretion that the undisbursed balance of such proceeds on deposit with Agent, together with additional funds deposited for the purpose, shall be at least sufficient to pay for the remaining Cost to Repair, free and clear of all liens and claims for lien;

(v)    All work to comply with the standards, quality of construction and Legal Requirements applicable to the original construction of the Mortgaged Property;

(vi)    in Agent’s good faith and reasonable judgment the Repair Work is likely to be completed at least three (3) months prior to the Maturity Date;

(vii)    each tenant of the Property which might otherwise have a right to terminate its lease on account of such casualty or condemnation shall have waived its right to so terminate conditioned only upon the Repair Work being completed within a reasonable period of time acceptable to Agent or such period as is expressly provided in the applicable leases, whichever is longer, so long as the period does not exceed the period for which rent loss insurance is available; and

(viii)    no Event of Default is in existence as of the date of such casualty or condemnation or on the date of any applicable disbursement of any insurance proceeds or condemnation award to Borrower (excluding any Event of Default relating to such casualty or condemnation);

67


(ix)    Agent is reasonably satisfied that all payments to be made by Borrower under the Notes will be made in a timely manner;

(x)    Agent shall have received copies of all permits and approvals required in connection with the Repair Work; and

(xi)    Agent shall be satisfied that after the Repair Work is completed, the value of said Mortgaged Property, upon completion of the Repair Work, will equal or exceed such value immediately prior to the applicable casualty loss or condemnation.

(a)Subject to the requirements of any Approved Lease, if there is any condemnation for public use of a Mortgaged Property, the net proceeds on account thereof shall be paid to Agent and shall be applied to Borrower’s obligations, or at Agent’s discretion released to Borrower. If, in the case of a partial taking or a temporary taking, in the good faith and reasonable judgment of Agent the effect of such taking is such that there has not been a material and adverse impairment of the profitability of the Mortgaged Property, so long as no Event of Default exists Agent shall release awards on account of such taking to Borrower if such awards are sufficient (or amounts sufficient are otherwise made available) to repair or restore the Mortgaged Property to a condition reasonably satisfactory to Agent, subject to the requirements of Section 5.06(d).

SECTION 5.07 Books and Records; Inspection Rights.

(b)The Borrower will, and will cause each of its Subsidiaries to, keep proper books of record and account in which full, true and correct entries are made of all dealings and transactions in relation to its business and activities.

(c)The Borrower will, and will cause each of its Subsidiaries to, permit any representatives designated by the Agent or any Lender, upon reasonable prior notice and subject to rights of tenants, to visit and inspect the Mortgaged Properties and any of its properties where books and records are kept, to examine and make extracts from its books and records, and to discuss its affairs, finances and condition with its officers and independent accountants, all at such reasonable times and as often as reasonably requested.

SECTION 5.08 Compliance with Laws. The Borrower will, and will cause each of its Subsidiaries to, comply with all Legal Requirements applicable to it or its property, except where the failure to do so, individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

SECTION 5.09 Use of Proceeds; Letters of Credit. The proceeds of the Loans and the Letters of Credit will be used for Borrower’s working capital requirements and for general corporate purposes, including the acquisition, development and enhancement of real estate, capital expenditures and debt repayment. No part of the proceeds of any Loan or Letter of Credit will be used, whether directly or indirectly, for financing, funding or completing the hostile acquisition of publicly traded Persons or for any purpose that entails a violation of any of the Regulations of the Board, including Regulations U and X.


68


SECTION 5.10 Fiscal Year. Borrower shall maintain (and shall cause REIT to maintain) as its fiscal year the twelve (12) month period ending on December 31 of each year.

SECTION 5.11 Environmental Matters.

(a)Borrower shall comply and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries and each Mortgaged Property owned or leased by such parties to comply in all material respects with all applicable Environmental Laws currently or hereafter in effect, except to the extent noncompliance could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b)If the Agent or the Required Lenders at any time have a reasonable basis to believe that there may be a material violation of any Environmental Law related to any Mortgaged Property owned or leased by Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or real property immediately adjoining such Mortgaged Property, which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, then Borrower agrees, upon request from the Agent (which request may be delivered at the option of Agent or at the direction of Required Lenders), to provide the Agent, at the Borrower’s expense, with such reports, certificates, engineering studies or other written material or data as the Agent or the Required Lenders may reasonably require so as to reasonably satisfy the Agent and the Required Lenders that any Credit Party or Mortgaged Property owned or leased by them is in material compliance with all applicable Environmental Laws.

(c)Borrower shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, take such Remedial Action or other action as required by Environmental Law or any Governmental Authority with respect to Mortgaged Properties.

(d)If the Borrower fails to timely take, or to diligently and expeditiously proceed to complete, any action described in this Section 5.11 within the lesser of: (i) thirty (30) days following Borrower’s actual knowledge of the event in question or (ii) the period required for such actions by any applicable Environmental Laws, the Agent may, after notice to the Lead Borrower, with the consent of the Required Lenders, make advances or payments toward the performance or satisfaction of the same, but shall in no event be under any obligation to do so. All sums so advanced or paid by the Agent (including reasonable counsel and consultant and investigation and laboratory fees and expenses, and fines or other penalty payments) and all sums advanced or paid in connection with any judicial or administrative investigation or proceeding relating thereto, will become due and payable from the Borrower fifteen (15) Business Days after demand, and shall bear interest at the rate for past due interest provided in Section 2.10(c) from the date any such sums are so advanced or paid by the Agent until the date any such sums are repaid by the Borrower. Promptly upon request, the Borrower will execute and deliver such instruments as the Agent may deem reasonably necessary to permit the Agent to take any such action, and as the Agent may require to secure all sums so advanced or paid by the Agent. If a Lien is filed against the Mortgaged Property by any Governmental Authority resulting from the need to expend or the actual expending of monies arising from an action or omission, whether intentional or unintentional, of the Borrower or for which any Borrower is responsible, resulting in the Releasing of any Hazardous Material into the waters or onto land located within or without the State where the Mortgaged Property is located, then the Borrower will, within thirty (30) days from the date that the Borrower is first given notice that such Lien has been placed against the

69


Mortgaged Property (or within such shorter period of time as may be specified by the Agent if such Governmental Authority has commenced steps to cause the Mortgaged Property to be sold pursuant to such Lien), either (i) pay the claim and remove the Lien, or (ii) furnish a cash deposit, bond or such other security with respect thereto as is satisfactory in all respects to the Agent and is sufficient to effect a complete discharge of such Lien on the Mortgaged Property.

SECTION 5.12 Mortgaged Property Pool.

(a)(i) The Borrower owns, and subject to Section 5.21(c), will at all times own, in fee simple (or, if approved by the Agent and Required Lenders, in their sole discretion, leasehold title) a pool of Mortgaged Properties (the “Mortgaged Property Pool”).

Following Agent’s and Required Lenders’ approval of Proposed Mortgaged Property and the satisfaction of all Mortgaged Property Requirements, such Proposed Mortgaged Property shall be deemed to be a “Mortgaged Property.” If the Agent does not notify the Borrower of the Agent’s

73


and Required Lenders’ decision within such twenty (20) day period, they will be deemed to have rejected the Proposed Mortgaged Property.

Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Agreement to the contrary,

SECTION 5.13 Further Assurances. At any time upon the request of the Agent, each Credit Party will, promptly and at its expense, execute, acknowledge and deliver such further documents and perform such other acts and things as the Agent may reasonably request to evidence the Loans made hereunder and interest thereon in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The Agent has agreed in some instances that the maximum amount secured by a Deed of Trust may be limited in order to reduce fees or taxes paid by the Borrower in a particular jurisdiction. If an Appraisal reflects that the Appraised Value of a Mortgaged Property is in excess of the maximum amount secured by the Deed of Trust, then within ten (10) days after written notice from the Agent to the Lead Borrower, upon the reasonable request of the Agent, the Borrower will execute an amendment to the Deed of Trust and such other documentation as is necessary to increase the amount secured by the Deed of Trust to at least the Appraised Value of the subject Mortgaged Property.

SECTION 5.14 Partial Releases. The Borrower may obtain the release of any Mortgaged Property or portion thereof (the “Release Tract”) from the liens and security interests of the Loan Documents if it satisfies the following terms and conditions:

(a)No Default or Event of Default is in existence, and the release of the Release Tract will not cause there to be a Default (including under Sections 2.01, 5.02, 5.12, or 5.21) or Event of Default.

(b)Lead Borrower will deliver to the Agent a Borrowing Base Certificate with pro forma information without the Release Tract which shows that the Principal Obligation

74


after the release of the Release Tract will not exceed the Borrowing Base Availability; provided, however, that if the Principal Obligation after the release of the Release Tract will exceed the Borrowing Base Availability, the Borrower shall have the right, prior to or at the time of and as a condition to, the release of the Release Tract, to (i) (except to the extent that any such excess is addressed in the following clause (ii)) pay such excess to the Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders, and/or (ii) if the amount of such excess exceeds the Principal Obligation attributable to Loans and Reimbursement Obligations plus any other then-due Obligations of the Borrower other than the Stated Amounts of any Letters of Credit, cash collateralize such Stated Amounts in the amount of such excess, such that, following any such payment and cash collateralization, no such excess will exist. Any such cash collateral shall be treated as if provided pursuant to Section 2.20(a).

(c)The release will be for the complete Mortgaged Property, and not for just a portion thereof unless the additional requirements set forth in (h) are satisfied.

(d)No less than fifteen (15) days prior to the date of the requested release (“Partial Release Date”), the Borrower shall deliver to the Agent a written request for such partial release (the “Release Request”).

(e)The Borrower shall provide the Agent with an endorsement to the Title Insurance Policy, if required with respect to interrelated Title Insurance Policies, and such other documents as may be reasonably required by the Agent, to confirm that the liens and security interests of the Loan Documents remain valid and prior liens against the Mortgaged Properties (the “Remaining Projects”).

(f)The Borrower shall pay all costs and expenses incurred by the Agent in connection with such Partial Release, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, recording fees and any title policy endorsement fees.

(g)The Agent shall have received satisfactory evidence that each of the Remaining Projects which is adjoining or which shares access or easements with the Release Tract, if any, has adequate access and joint use easements, that there are no encroachments from or on to the Release Tract, and that there is no inability to use required facilities or amenities, which evidence may be provided by a Current Survey of the affected Remaining Projects.

(h)If the Release Tract is a portion of a Mortgaged Property, Agent shall have the right, in its sole discretion and at the Borrower’s expense, to require an updated Appraisal of the Mortgaged Property without the Release Tract, and Agent shall be satisfied, in its reasonable discretion, that the remaining portion of the subject Property will continue to qualify as a Mortgaged Property.

The Agent shall be solely responsible for determining whether the criteria set forth in this Section 5.14 have been met, and Agent shall not require the approval of any Lenders to release a Release Tract in accordance with this Section 5.14. Subject to the satisfaction of the provisions of this Section 5.14, on the applicable Partial Release Date, (i) any Borrower owning the Release Tract which has no other ownership interest in any of the Remaining Projects, will be released

75


from further payment and performance of the Loans (other than obligations under the Environmental Indemnity and obligations which, by their terms, survive the termination of the Loan Documents as set forth in Section 9.05); (ii) such Borrower will no longer be deemed a “Borrower” under the Loan Documents; and (iii) such Release Tract will no longer be deemed a “Mortgaged Property” under the Loan Documents. Agent and Lenders shall execute a deed of partial release or its equivalent with respect to the Release Tract, along with any other documents reasonably requested by Borrower to evidence the release, all at Borrower’s expense.

SECTION 6.05 Restricted Payments. REIT and the Borrower will not, and will not permit any of their Subsidiaries to, declare or make, or agree to pay or make, directly or

78


indirectly, during any Calendar Quarter, any Restricted Payment which is not approved by the prior written consent of the Required Lenders, provided that any of the following Restricted Payments are permitted so long as the aggregate amount of such Restricted Payments, without double counting for distributions by Holdings to Parent, by Parent to REIT, or by REIT to its shareholders, does not exceed 100% of REIT’s Adjusted Funds From Operations: (a) Restricted Payments by REIT to the extent necessary in order to maintain its status as a real estate investment trust under Section 856(c)(i) of the Code; (b) provided no Default or Event of Default is then in existence, Restricted Payments declared and paid ratably by Subsidiaries to Borrower or REIT with respect to their Equity Interests; and (c) provided no Default or Event of Default is then in existence, Restricted Payments declared and paid ratably by Holdings to Parent (and then by Parent to REIT) with respect to its Equity Interest. Borrower may reserve up to $2,000,000 of net sales proceeds from property dispositions to supplement the calculation of Adjusted Funds From Operations to maintain an annual distribution amount of $0.24 per share, provided that not Default or Event of Default exists.

SECTION 6.06 Transactions with Affiliates. The Borrower will not, and will not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, sell, lease or otherwise transfer any property or assets to, or purchase, lease or otherwise acquire any property or assets from, or otherwise engage in any other transactions with, any of its Affiliates, except (a) in the ordinary course of business at prices and on terms and conditions not less favorable to the Borrower or such Subsidiary than could be obtained on an arm’s-length basis from unrelated third parties (with in independent MAI appraisal delivered by a qualified third party appraiser being conclusive to establish compliance with this requirement), (b) transactions between or among the Borrower and its wholly owned Subsidiaries not involving any other Affiliate, (c) any Restricted Payment permitted by Section 6.05, or (d) as consented to by Agent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

SECTION 6.07 [Intentionally Deleted].

SECTION 6.08 Restrictive Agreements. REIT, the Parent and the Borrower will not, and will not permit any of Borrower’s Subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, enter into, incur or permit to exist any agreement or other arrangement that prohibits, restricts or imposes any condition upon (a) the ability of REIT, the Parent, the Borrower or any of Borrower’s Subsidiaries to create, incur or permit to exist any Lien upon any of its property or assets, or (b) the ability of any Subsidiary to pay dividends or other distributions with respect to any of its Equity Interests or to make or repay loans or advances to REIT, the Parent, the Borrower or any of Borrower’s Subsidiaries or to Guarantee Indebtedness of REIT, the Parent, the Borrower or any of Borrower’s Subsidiaries; provided that (i) the foregoing shall not apply to restrictions and conditions imposed by law or by this Agreement or as otherwise approved by the Agent, (ii) the foregoing shall not apply to customary restrictions and conditions contained in agreements relating to the sale of a Subsidiary pending such sale, provided such restrictions and conditions apply only to the Subsidiary that is to be sold and such sale is permitted hereunder, (iii) clause (a) of the foregoing shall not apply to restrictions or conditions imposed by any agreement relating to secured Indebtedness or Liens permitted by this Agreement if such restrictions or conditions apply only to the property or assets securing such Indebtedness and (iv) clause (a) of the foregoing shall not apply to customary provisions in leases restricting the assignment thereof.

79



SECTION 6.09 Indebtedness. Neither REIT nor any Borrower shall, without the prior written consent of the Agent and the Required Lenders, create, incur, assume, guarantee or be or remain liable, contingently or otherwise with respect to any Indebtedness on a recourse basis, except: (a) Indebtedness under this Agreement; (b) Indebtedness to the Agent; (c) Indebtedness under any Hedging Agreements permitted by this Agreement; and (d) individual property-level Indebtedness with recourse to REIT or Borrower in an aggregate amount outstanding at any one time not to exceed fifteen percent (15%) of Total Asset Value.

The Credit Parties shall not replace SRT Advisor as the external advisor of REIT or Glenborough as the property manager of any Mortgaged Property without the Agent’s prior written consent. At any time that any Event of Default exists under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, no property or asset or management fees shall be paid to a Management Company, any Credit Party or to any Subsidiary or Affiliate of a Management Company or a Credit Party. All such Persons (or any successor advisor or property manager but not any Sub-Manager) shall execute subordination agreements, which, in the case of any property manager, shall include an assignment of the property management agreement, in form and substance acceptable to the Agent (each, a “Subordination of Management Fees”) which shall provide (a) that such fees may be paid so long as no Event of Default exists; (b) that all such fees (or, in the case of property management fees to Glenborough only, those fees that are in excess of 3% of gross revenues) shall be expressly subordinate to the Loans; and (c) that such Management Company is not made a party to the Loans solely by executing such Subordination of Management Fees.

SECTION 6.11 Leases.

(a)    (i) As to any Major Lease executed after the Effective Date, the Agent’s prior written approval (provided, however that the prior written approval of the Required Lenders shall be required for Major Leases which exceed 25,000 square feet) shall be required in each instance as to: (A) the terms of such Major Lease; (B) each tenant; (C) each guarantor of a tenant’s obligations; (D) any consent to subletting or assignment; (E) any modification or amendment of the term (except for extension or renewal option contemplated in such Major Lease), rent and/or renewal option provisions of such Major Lease; and (F) any termination (excluding the expiration of the term of such lease on the expiration date, as set forth in the applicable lease agreement), cancellation or surrender of such Major Lease. Agent’s and/or Required Lenders’ approval shall not be required in connection with any Lease that is not a Major Lease, any subletting or assignment under such Lease, and any modification, amendment, termination, cancellation or surrender of any such Lease.

All references in this Agreement and/or the other Loan Documents to the term “Approved Lease” means, when such reference is applicable to the Mortgaged Property, (a) any Major Lease, or modification or amendment of the term, rent and/or renewal option provisions of such Major Lease, (i) which has been so approved by the Agent and/or the Required Lenders (as applicable) or which does not require Agent’s and/or the Required Lenders (as applicable) approval hereunder, and (ii) as to which the tenant has executed an SNDA Agreement and estoppel certificate in the forms described in Section 6.11(b),

80


(b) any Lease that is not a Major Lease, (c) any subletting or assignment under a Lease that is not a Major Lease, and (d) any modification, amendment, termination, cancellation or surrender of any Lease that is not a Major Lease.

(iii)    The Agent and/or the Lenders (as applicable) shall act on requests from the Borrower for any approval of a Major Lease in a commercially reasonable manner and shall respond to any such request within ten (10) Business Days following the Agent’s or such Lender’s receipt of all requested information in connection therewith. The Agent’s response may consist of an approval or disapproval of the request, or a conditional approval thereof subject to specified reasonable conditions, or any combination thereof. In the event that Agent requires additional information from Borrower to review any such request, Agent will request such additional information within five (5) Business Days following Agent’s receipt of such approved request. In order to expedite the processing of requests for such approvals, the Borrower agrees to provide the Agent and each of the Lenders with as much advance information as is possible in a commercially reasonable manner in advance of the Borrower’s formal request for an approval.

(b)    The Agent shall have the right to request that each tenant execute and deliver to the Agent, and upon such request the Borrower agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain from such tenant, a subordination, non-disturbance of possession and attornment agreement substantially in the form, attached hereto as Exhibit H or in such other form as reasonably approved by Agent (each, an “SNDA Agreement”), and, from time to time, but, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, no more frequently than once per calendar year, an estoppel certificate substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit I.

(c)    From time to time upon Agent’s reasonable request, Borrower shall promptly deliver to Agent (i) complete executed originals of each Lease, including any exhibits thereto and any guaranty(ies) thereof, (ii) a complete rent roll of the Real Property in such detail as Agent may require, together with such operating statements and leasing schedules and reports as Agent may require, (iii) any and all financial statements of the tenants, subtenants and any lease guarantors at the Real Property to the extent available to Borrower, and (iv) such other information regarding tenants and prospective tenants and other leasing information related to the Real Property as Agent may reasonably request which is in Borrower’s possession or control or can be obtained by Borrower using commercially reasonable efforts. In addition, Borrower shall provide Agent with a copy of all Leases and amendments thereto executed after the date hereof

81


promptly following their execution. Borrower shall have a reasonable time within which to respond to Agent’s request for information pursuant to this Section.

(d)    Borrower represents, covenants and warrants to the Agent and the Lenders that Borrower (i) will observe and perform all of the obligations imposed upon the landlord in the Leases of the Mortgaged Property and will not do or permit to be done anything to impair the security thereof; (ii) will use its best efforts to enforce or secure, or cause to be enforced or secured, the performance of each and every obligation and undertaking of the respective tenants under the Leases of the Mortgaged Property and will appear in and defend, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, any action or proceeding arising under, or in any manner connected with, the Leases of the Mortgaged Property; (iii) will not collect any of the Rents more than thirty (30) days in advance of the time when the same become due under the terms of the Leases of the Mortgaged Property; (iv) will not discount any future accruing Rents from the Mortgaged Property without Agent’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; (v) without the prior written consent of Agent, will not execute any assignment of the Leases or the Rents of the Mortgaged Property; (vi) will not add or modify any option or right of first refusal to purchase all or any portion of the Mortgaged Property or any present or future interest therein, without the prior written consent of Agent; (vii) will execute and deliver, at the request of Agent, all such assignments of the Leases and Rents of the Mortgaged Property in favor of Agent as Agent may from time to time require; and (viii) shall notify Agent promptly in writing in the event that Borrower obtains actual knowledge that a tenant under a Major Lease of the Mortgaged Property committed a material default under such Major Lease.

No Credit Party shall permit any Loan or the proceeds of any Loan, directly or indirectly: (a) to be lent, contributed or otherwise made available to fund any activity or business in any Designated Jurisdiction; (b) to fund any activity or business of any Person located, organized or residing in any Designated Jurisdiction or who is the subject of any Sanctions; or (c) in any other manner that will result in any violation by any Person (including any Lender or the Agent) of any Sanctions. The Credit Parties will maintain in effect and enforce policies and procedures designed to ensure compliance by the Credit Parties, their Subsidiaries, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents with Anti-Corruption Laws and applicable Sanctions.

Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, if a Default occurs based solely on the condition of, or facts or circumstances existing with respect to, a particular Mortgaged Property (a “Defaulting Property”), it shall not constitute an Event of Default if:

(a)    a release of such Defaulting Property as a Mortgaged Property pursuant to Section 5.14 would result in the cure of such Default; and

Borrower’s exercise of its rights set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph (the “Defaulting Property Cure Rights”) shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

(A)    There shall be no other Default or Event of Default in existence at the occurrence of the Default that causes Borrower to seek release of the Defaulting Property, or at any time thereafter, up to and including the date that such Defaulting Property is actually released from the liens and the security interests of the Loan Documents;

(B)    Agent and the Lenders shall not be obligated to make any Loans or issue any Letters of Credit during any period of time between the occurrence of a Default that causes Borrower to seek release of a Defaulting Property and the date that such Defaulting Property is actually released from the liens and the security interests of the Loan Documents; and

(C)    Borrower shall not be permitted to exercise the Defaulting Property Cure Rights any more often than once in any period of twelve (12) consecutive months during the term of the Loans.

Fourth: To all applicable Lenders and the Agent, until the Agent and all of the Lenders have been paid in full all other amounts due to the Agent and such Lenders under the Loans, Letters of Credit and Hedging Obligations, including, without limitation, (a) any costs and expenses incurred directly by such Lenders to the extent such costs and expenses are reimbursable to such Lenders by the Borrower under the Loan Documents, (b) payment of breakage, termination or other Hedging Obligations due under any Hedging Agreement between any Credit Party and the Agent or any Affiliate of the Agent, and (c) cash collateralize that portion of Letter of Credit Liabilities comprised of the aggregate undrawn amount of Letters of Credit, ratably among the Lenders and the Agent (and, in the case of such Hedging Agreements, Affiliates of the Agent) and the Agent (as the Letters of Credit issuer) in proportion to the respective amounts described in this clause Fourth held by them.

Fifth: To the Borrower or such other Person as may be entitled to claim Liquidation Proceeds.

ARTICLE VIII. THE AGENT
SECTION 8.01 Appointment and Authority. Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints KeyBank to act on its behalf as the Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and authorizes the Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Agent by the terms hereof or thereof, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. In the event of conflicting instructions or notices given to Borrower by Agent and any Lender, Borrower is hereby directed, and shall be entitled, to rely exclusively on the instruction or notice given by Agent. The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Agent and the Lenders, and neither the Borrower nor any other Credit Party shall have rights as a third-party beneficiary of any of such provisions. It is understood and agreed that the use of the term “agent” herein or in any other Loan Documents (or any other similar term) with reference to the Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties.

SECTION 8.02 Rights as a Lender. The Person serving as the Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires, include the Person serving as the Agent hereunder in its individual capacity. Such Person and its Affiliates may

87


accept deposits from, lend money to, own securities of, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for, and generally engage in any kind of business with, the Borrower or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not the Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders.

SECTION 8.03 Exculpatory Provisions.

(a)The Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, and its duties hereunder shall be administrative in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agent:

(i)    shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing;

(ii)    shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Loan Documents that the Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Loan Documents); provided that the Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose the Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or applicable law, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Debtor Relief Law or that may effect a forfeiture, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender in violation of any Debtor Relief Law; and

(iii)    shall not, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as the Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.

(b)The Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it (i) with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in Sections 9.02 and 7.02), or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment. The Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default or Event of Default unless and until notice describing such Default or Event of Default is given to the Agent in writing by the Borrower or a Lender.

(c)The Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth herein or therein or the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, (iv) the validity,

88


enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere herein, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Agent, or (vi) any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Agent’s Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Credit Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Agent be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.

SECTION 8.04 Reliance by Agent. The Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person. The Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan, or the issuance, extension, renewal or increase of a Letter of Credit, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender, the Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender unless the Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender prior to the making of such Loan or the issuance of such Letter of Credit. The Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.

SECTION 8.05 Delegation of Duties. The Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Agent. The Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facility under this Agreement as well as activities as Agent. The Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and nonappealable judgment that the Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents.

SECTION 8.06    Resignation of Agent.

(a)The Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders and the Lead Borrower. Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with the Borrower, to appoint a successor. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the “Resignation Effective Date”), then the retiring Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor

Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above. Whether or not a successor has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date.

(c)With effect from the Resignation Effective Date (i) the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (except that in the case of any collateral security held by the Agent on behalf of the Lenders under any of the Loan Documents, the retiring Agent shall continue to hold such collateral security until such time as a successor Agent is appointed), and (ii) except for any indemnity payments owed to the retiring Agent, all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through the Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly, until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Agent as provided for above. Upon the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent (other than any rights to indemnity payments owed to the retiring Agent), and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents. The fees payable by the Borrower to a successor Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrower and such successor. After the retiring Agent’s resignation hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions of this Article and Section 9.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring Agent was acting as Agent.

(d)Such successor Agent shall issue letters of credit in substitution for the Letters of Credit, if any, outstanding at the time of such succession or shall make other arrangements satisfactory to the current Agent, in either case, to assume effectively the obligations of the current Agent with respect to such Letters of Credit.

SECTION 8.07 Non-Reliance on Agent and Other Lenders. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.

SECTION 8.08 No Other Duties, etc. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Bookrunner and Arranger listed on the cover page hereof shall not have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Agent or a Lender hereunder.

(c)Notices sent by hand or overnight courier service, or mailed by certified or registered mail, shall be deemed to have been given when received; notices sent by fax shall be deemed to have been given when sent (except that, if not given during normal business hours for the recipient, shall be deemed to have been given at the opening of business on the next Business Day for the recipient). Notices sent via telephone, shall be deemed to have been given on the day and at the time reciprocal communication (i.e., direct communication between two or more individuals, which shall not include voice mail messages) with one of the individuals designated to receive notice occurs during a call to the telephone number or numbers indicated for such party. Notices delivered through electronic communications to the extent provided in subsection (d) below, shall be effective as provided in such subsection (d).

91



(d)Notices and other communications to the Agent and the Lenders hereunder may be delivered or furnished by electronic communication (including e-mail and Internet or intranet websites). The Agent or the Borrower may, each in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it, provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications.

(f)Unless the Agent otherwise prescribes: (i) notices and other communications sent to an e-mail address shall be deemed received upon the sender’s receipt of an acknowledgement from the intended recipient (such as by the “return receipt requested” function, as available, return e- mail or other written acknowledgement); and (ii) notices or communications posted to an Internet or intranet website shall be deemed received upon the deemed receipt by the intended recipient at its e- mail address as described in the foregoing clause (i) of notification that such notice or communication is available and identifying the website address therefor; provided that for both clauses (i) and (ii), if such notice, email or other communication is not sent during the normal business hours of the recipient, such notice, email or communication shall be deemed to have been sent at the opening of business on the next Business Day for the recipient.

(g)The Agent and the Lenders shall be entitled to rely and act upon any notices (including telephonic or electronic Borrowing Requests and Letter of Credit applications) purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrower even if: (i) such notices were not made in a manner specified herein, were incomplete or were not preceded or followed by any other form of notice specified herein; or (ii) the terms thereof, as understood by the recipient, varied from any confirmation thereof. The Borrower shall indemnify the Agent, each Lender and the Related Parties of each of them from all losses, costs, expenses and liabilities resulting from the reliance by such Person on each notice purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrower. All telephonic notices to and other telephonic communications with the Agent may be recorded by the Agent, and each of the parties hereto hereby consents to such recording.

SECTION 9.02 Waivers; Amendments.

(a)No failure or delay by the Agent or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Agent and the Lenders hereunder and under any other Loan Document are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by Section 9.02(b), and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan or issuance of a Letter of Credit shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default or Event of Default, regardless of whether the Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of such Default or Event of Default at the time.

92



(b)Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Borrower and the Required Lenders or by the Borrower and the Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such agreement shall (i) increase or reduce the Commitment of any Lender other than as otherwise provided herein, (ii) reduce the rate of interest thereon, or reduce any fees payable hereunder (other than a reduction or waiver of default interest or late charges), (iii) extend the Maturity Date, or (iv) change any of the provisions of this Section or the definition of “Required Lenders” or any other provision hereof specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to waive, amend or modify any rights hereunder or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender adversely affected thereby; provided further that no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Agent hereunder without the prior written consent of the Agent. Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Agreement to the contrary, in the event that the Lenders’ consent is requested under this Section 9.02(b), the Lenders shall have ten (10) Business Days to respond to such request so long as such request bears the following legend at the top of the page “RESPONSE NEEDED WITHIN TEN (10) DAYS FROM RECEIPT OR REQUEST WILL BE DEEMED APPROVED”. If any Lender fails to respond within the foregoing ten (10) Business Days period, such Lender shall be deemed to have approved the request.


(c)Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary none of the Lenders or the existing Borrower will be required to execute assumption or amendment documents to add a Person as a Borrower or as a Guarantor. If Real Property assets are added to the Pool in accordance with this Agreement and the owner is not already a Borrower, then such owner may be added as a Borrower as required by Section 5.12 pursuant to a Joinder Agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit F executed by such owner and delivered to the Agent, and in each case Borrower, Guarantor, such owner and the Agent will enter into an amendment to the Environmental Indemnity.

SECTION 9.03 Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver.

(a)The Borrower shall pay (i) all reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by the Agent and its Affiliates (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Agent), and shall pay all fees and time charges and disbursements for attorneys who may be employees of the Agent , in connection with the syndication of the credit facility provided herein, the preparation, negotiation, execution, delivery and administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof or thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated), (ii) all reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by the Agent in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder, and (iii) all out of pocket expenses incurred by the Agent or any Lender (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for the Agent or any Lender, and shall pay all fees and time charges for attorneys who may be employees of the or any Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights (A) in connection

93


with this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including its rights under this Section, or (B) in connection with the Loans made or Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such out of pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans or Letters of Credit. Borrower’s payment obligation under this Section 9.03(a) shall not apply to expenses (however characterized or of whatever type) incurred by Agent or its affiliates, or any Lender, in connection with any dispute solely between Agent and any one or more Lenders, or solely among Lenders, as to their respective rights, duties or obligations under Article 8 of this Agreement or otherwise.

(b)The Borrower shall indemnify the Agent (and any sub-agent thereof), each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses (including the fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee), and shall indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnitee from all fees and time charges and disbursements for attorneys who may be employees of any Indemnitee, incurred by any Indemnitee or asserted against any Indemnitee by any Person (including the Borrower or any other Credit Party) other than such Indemnitee and its Related Parties arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, (ii) any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use or proposed use of the


94


proceeds therefrom (including any refusal by the Agent to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit), (iii) any actual or alleged presence or Release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Environmental Liability related in any way to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory, whether brought by a third party or by the Borrower or any other Credit Party, and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses (x) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee or (y) result from a claim brought by the Borrower or any other Credit Party against an Indemnitee for breach in bad faith of such Indemnitee’s obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document, if the Borrower or such Credit Party has obtained a final and nonappealable judgment in its favor on such claim as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. This Section 9.03(b) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims, damages, etc. arising from any non-Tax claim. The foregoing indemnity and hold harmless on the part of Borrower shall not apply to losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses (however characterized or of whatever type) incurred by Agent or its affiliates, or any Lender, in connection with any dispute solely between Agent and any one or more Lenders, or solely among Lenders, as to their respective rights, duties or obligations under Article 8 of this Agreement or otherwise.

(c)Unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Borrower shall be entitled to assume the defense of any action for which indemnification is sought hereunder with counsel of its choice at its expense (in which case the Borrower shall not thereafter be responsible for the fees and expenses of any separate counsel retained by an Indemnitee except as set forth below); provided, however, that such counsel shall be subject to the reasonable approval of each such Indemnitee. Notwithstanding the Borrower’s election to assume the defense of such action, each Indemnitee shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such action, and the Borrower shall bear the reasonable fees, costs and expenses of such separate counsel, if (i) the use of counsel chosen by the Borrower to represent such Indemnitee would present such counsel with a conflict of interest; (ii) the actual or potential defendants in, or targets of, any such action include both the Borrower and such Indemnitee and such Indemnitee shall have reasonably concluded that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or additional to those available to the Borrower (in which case the Borrower shall not have the right to assume the defense or such action on behalf of such Indemnitee); (iii) the Borrower shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnitee to represent it within a reasonable time after notice of the institution of such action; or (iv) the Borrower shall authorize in writing such Indemnitee to employ separate counsel at the Borrower’s expense. The Borrower will not be liable under this Agreement for any amount paid by an Indemnitee to settle any claims or actions if the settlement is entered into without the Borrower’s consent, which consent may not be withheld or delayed unless such settlement is unreasonable in light of such claims or actions against, and defenses available to, such Indemnitee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event an Indemnitee

95


releases the Borrower from its indemnification obligations hereunder, such Indemnitee may assume the defense of any such action with respect to itself.

(d)To the extent that the Borrower for any reason fails to indefeasibly pay any amount required under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section to be paid by it to the Agent (or any sub- agent thereof) or any Related Party of any of the Agent, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Agent (or any such sub-agent) or such Related Party, as the case may be, such Lender’s pro rata share (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought based on each Lender’s share of the Principal Obligation at such time) of such unpaid amount (including any such unpaid amount in respect of a claim asserted by such Lender); provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Agent (or any such sub-agent) in its capacity as such, or against any Related Party of the Agent acting for the Agent (or any such sub-agent) in connection with such capacity.

(e)To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Borrower shall not assert, and hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit, or the use of the proceeds thereof. No Indemnitee referred to in paragraph (b) above shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.

(f)
All amounts due under this Section 9.03 shall be payable not later than fifteen (15) days after written demand therefor, which demand shall be accompanied by reasonable documentation with respect to the amounts claimed.

(g)Each party’s obligations under this Section shall survive the termination of the Loan Documents and payment of the obligations hereunder.

SECTION 9.04 Successors and Assigns.

(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 neither the Borrower nor any other Credit Party may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Agent and each Lender, and no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder except (i) to an assignee in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (b) of this Section, (ii) by way of participation in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (d) of this Section, or (iii) by way of pledge or assignment of a security interest subject to the restrictions of paragraph (f) of this Section (and any other attempted assignment or transfer by any party hereto shall be null and void). Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any

96


Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants to the extent provided in paragraph (d) of this Section and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of each of the Agent and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

(b)Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities at the time owing to it); provided that any such assignment shall be subject to the following conditions:

(i) (A)    in the case of an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitment and the Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities at the time owing to it or contemporaneous assignments to related Approved Funds that equal at least the amount specified in paragraph (b)(i)(B) of this Section in the aggregate or in the case of an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund, no minimum amount need be assigned; and

(B)    in any case not described in paragraph (b)(i)(A) of this Section, the aggregate amount of the Commitment (which for this purpose includes Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities outstanding thereunder) or, if the applicable Commitment is not then in effect, the principal outstanding balance of the Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Agent) shall not be less than $5,000,000.00, unless each of the Agent and, so long as no Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower otherwise consents (each such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

(ii)    Each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to the Loans, Letter of Credit Liabilities and Commitment assigned.

(iii)    No consent shall be required for any assignment except to the extent required by paragraph (b)(i)(B) of this Section and, in addition:

(A)    the consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required unless (x) an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at the time of such assignment, or (y) such assignment is to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund; provided, however, that (1) the Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received notice thereof; (2) no consent of the Borrower shall be required in connection with any assignment to a Person acquiring, or merging with, a

97


Lender; and (3) Borrower’s consent shall not be deemed to be unreasonably withheld if the Borrower reasonably believes that any proposed assignee (including an entity that becomes an assignee solely by virtue of its merger with or acquisition of a Lender) is a Competitor.

(B)    the consent of the Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required for assignments to a Person that is not a Lender, an Affiliate of such Lender or an Approved Fund with respect to such Lender.

(iv)    The parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500.00; provided that the Agent may, in its sole discretion, elect to waive such processing and recordation fee in the case of any assignment. The assignee, if it is not a Lender, shall deliver to the Agent an Administrative Questionnaire.

(v)    No such assignment shall be made to (A) the Borrower or any of the Borrower’s Affiliates or Subsidiaries or (B) to any Defaulting Lender or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Person who, upon becoming a Lender hereunder, would constitute any of the foregoing Persons described in this clause (B).

(vi)
No such assignment shall be made to a natural Person.

(vii)    In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder, no such assignment shall be effective unless and until, in addition to the other conditions thereto set forth herein, the parties to the assignment shall make such additional payments to the Agent in an aggregate amount sufficient, upon distribution thereof as appropriate (which may be outright payment, purchases by the assignee of participations or subparticipations, or other compensating actions, including funding, with the consent of the Borrower and the Agent, the applicable pro rata share of Loans previously requested but not funded by the Defaulting Lender, to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (x) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Defaulting Lender to the Agent, and each other Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon), and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full pro rata share of all Loans and participations in Letters of Credit in accordance with its Applicable Percentage. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder shall become effective under applicable law without compliance with the provisions of this paragraph, then the assignee of such interest shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.

Subject to acceptance and recording thereof by the Agent pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption, the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by

98


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 Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto) but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14, and 9.03 with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment; provided, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no assignment by a Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or

release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender. Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this paragraph shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Section.

(c)The Agent, acting for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, 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 Lenders, and the Commitment of, and principal amount of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, and the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

(d)Any Lender may, without the consent of the Borrower or the Agent, sell participations to any Person, other than a natural Person, the Borrower or any of the Borrower’s Affiliates or Subsidiaries, Competitors or Real Property Tenants (each, a Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans owing to it); provided that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) the Borrower, the Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and (iv) Borrower’s obligations hereunder shall not be increased. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender 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 or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 9.02(b) that affects such Participant. Subject to Section 9.04(e), the Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.12, 2.13 and 2.14 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to Section 9.04(b). To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 9.08 as though it were a Lender, provided such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.15(c) as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non- fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each

99


Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Agent (in its capacity as Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.

(e)A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.12 or 2.14 than the applicable Lender 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 Borrower’s prior written consent. A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.14 unless the Lead Borrower is notified of the participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the benefit of the Borrower, to comply with Section 2.14(e) as though it were a Lender.

(f)Any Lender may at any time pledge, assign, or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided that no such pledge, assignment, or grant shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee, assignee, or secured party for such Lender as a party hereto.

SECTION 9.05 Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Borrower herein and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the making of any Loans, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14 and 9.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.

SECTION 9.06 Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness; Joint and Several.


100


(a)This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract.

(b)This Agreement and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Agent constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof.

(c)Except as provided in Section 4.01, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Agent, and when the Agent shall have received counterparts hereof which, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by telecopy shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

(d)Each Person constituting the Borrower shall be bound jointly and severally with one another to make, keep, observe and perform the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements, obligations and liabilities imposed by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents upon the “Borrower.”

(e)Each Borrower agrees that it shall never be entitled to be subrogated to any of the Agent’s or any Lender’s rights against any Credit Party or other Person or any collateral or offset rights held by the Agent or the Lenders for payment of the Loans until the full and final payment of the Loans and all other obligations incurred under the Loan Documents and final termination of the Lenders’ obligations, if any, to make further advances under this Agreement or to provide any other financial accommodations to any Credit Party. The value of the consideration received and to be received by each Borrower is reasonably worth at least as much as the liability and obligation of each Borrower incurred or arising under the Loan Documents.

(f)Each Borrower has determined that such liability and obligation may reasonably be expected to substantially benefit each Borrower directly or indirectly. Each Borrower has had full and complete access to the underlying papers relating to the Loans and all of the Loan Documents, has reviewed them and is fully aware of the meaning and effect of their contents. Each Borrower is fully informed of all circumstances which bear upon the risks of executing the Loan Documents and which a diligent inquiry would reveal. Each Borrower has adequate means to obtain from each other Borrower on a continuing basis information concerning such other Borrower’s financial condition, and is not depending on the Agent or the Lenders to provide such information, now or in the future. Each Borrower agrees that neither the Agent nor any of the Lenders shall have any obligation to advise or notify any Borrower or to provide any Borrower with any data or information regarding any other Borrower.

SECTION 9.07 Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of

101


such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.

SECTION 9.08 Right of Setoff. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender, the Agent, and each of their respective Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final, in whatever currency) at any time held, and other obligations (in whatever currency) at any time owing, by such Lender, the Agent or any such Affiliate, to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower or any other Credit Party against any and all of the obligations of the Borrower or such Credit Party now or hereafter existing under this Agreement or any other Loan Document to such Lender or the Agent or their respective Affiliates, irrespective of whether or not such Lender, the Agent or Affiliate shall have made any demand under this Agreement or any other Loan Document and although such obligations of the Borrower or such Credit Party may be contingent or unmatured or are owed to a branch, office or Affiliate of such Lender or the Agent different from the branch, office or Affiliate holding such deposit or obligated on such indebtedness; provided that in the event that any Defaulting Lender shall exercise any such right of setoff, (x) all amounts so set off shall be paid over immediately to the Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of

Section 2.17 and, pending such payment, shall be segregated by such Defaulting Lender from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of the Agent and the Lenders, and (y) the Defaulting Lender shall provide promptly to the Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the Obligations owing to such Defaulting Lender as to which it exercised such right of setoff. The rights of each Lender, the Agent and their respective Affiliates under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) that such Lender, the Agent or their respective Affiliates may have. Each Lender and the Agent agrees to notify the Borrower promptly after any such setoff and application; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application.

SECTION 9.09 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.

(a)This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York.

(b)The Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in New York, New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing choice of law:

(i)    matters relating to the creation, perfection, priority and enforcement of the liens on and security interests in a Mortgaged Property or other assets situated in another jurisdiction(s), including by way of illustration, but not in limitation, actions for foreclosure, for injunctive relief, or for the appointment of a receiver, shall be governed by the laws of such state;

(ii)    Agent shall comply with applicable law in such state to the extent required by the law of such jurisdiction(s) in connection with the foreclosure of the security interests and liens created under the Deed of Trust or exercising any rights with respect to the Property directly, and the other Loan Documents with respect to the Property or other assets situated in another jurisdiction; and

(iii)    provisions of Federal law and the law of such other jurisdiction(s) shall apply in defining the terms Hazardous Materials, Environmental Laws and Legal Requirements applicable to the Property as such terms are used in this Loan Agreement, the Environmental Indemnity and the other Loan Documents.

(c)The Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.

(d)Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.01. Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

SECTION 9.10 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN

103


INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.

SECTION 9.11 Headings. Article and Section headings and the Table of Contents used herein are for convenience of reference only, are not part of this Agreement and shall not affect the construction of, or be taken into consideration in interpreting, this Agreement.

SECTION 9.12 Confidentiality. Each of the Agent and the Lenders agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined below), except that Information may be disclosed (a) to its and its Affiliates’ directors, officers, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential), (b) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority, (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights hereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to any Eligible Assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee (which is not a Competitor or Real Property Tenant) of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, (g) with the consent of the Borrower or (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to the Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrower. For the purposes of this Section, “Information” means all information received from any Credit Party relating to the Credit Party or its business, other than any such information that is available to the Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by any Credit Party; provided that, in the case of information received from any Credit Party after the date hereof, such information

is clearly identified at the time of delivery as confidential. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information.

SECTION 9.13 Interest Rate Limitation. If at any time there exists a maximum rate of interest which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by the Lenders in accordance with applicable law (the “Maximum Rate”), then notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, at any time the interest applicable to any Loan, together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on such Loan under applicable law (collectively, the Charges”), shall exceed such Maximum Rate, the rate of interest payable in respect of such Loan hereunder, together with all Charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would have been paid in respect of such Loan but were not payable as result of the operation of this Section shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to the Lenders in respect of other Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate to the date of

104


repayment, shall have been received by the Lenders. If, for any reason whatsoever, the Charges paid or received on the Loans produces a rate which exceeds the Maximum Rate, the Lenders shall credit against the principal of the Loans (or, if such indebtedness shall have been paid in full, shall refund to the payor of such Charges) such portion of said Charges as shall be necessary to cause the interest paid on the Loans to produce a rate equal to the Maximum Rate. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to the holders of the Loans for the use, forbearance or detention of the Loans shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread in equal parts throughout the full term of this Agreement, so that the interest rate is uniform throughout the full term of this Agreement. The provisions of this Section shall control all agreements, whether now or hereafter existing and whether written or oral, between the parties hereto. Without notice to the Borrower or any other person or entity, the Maximum Rate, if any, shall automatically fluctuate upward and downward as and in the amount by which such maximum nonusurious rate of interest permitted by applicable law fluctuates.

SECTION 9.14 USA PATRIOT Act. Each Lender hereby notifies the Borrower that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the “Act”), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Borrower, which information includes the name and address of the Borrower and other information that will allow such Lender to identify the Borrower in accordance with the Act.

SECTION 9.15 Joint and Several Liability.

(a)    Each Borrower hereby agrees that such Borrower is jointly and severally liable for, and hereby absolutely and unconditionally guarantees to the Agent and Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, the full and prompt payment (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) and performance of, all Obligations owed or hereafter owing to the Agent and Lenders by each other Borrower. Although it is the express agreement and intent of Agent, Lenders and Borrowers that each Borrower is and shall be a primary obligor with respect to the obligations set forth herein and not a guarantor, indemnitor, surety or otherwise only secondarily liable for such obligations, in the event and to the extent that the obligations of such Borrower undertaken herein might in the future be construed to consist, in whole or in part, of the guaranty of

obligations of the other Borrower, each Borrower consents and agrees that such guaranty obligation (as the same may be construed) is and shall be a continuing guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection, that its obligations under this Section 9.15 shall not be discharged until payment and performance, in full, of the Obligations has occurred, and that its obligations under this Section 9.15 shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, irrespective of, and unaffected by,
(i) the genuineness, validity, regularity, enforceability or any future amendment of, or change in, any Obligation or any Loan Document, agreement, document or instrument to which any Borrower is or may become a party; (ii) the absence of any action to enforce any Obligation or Loan Document or the waiver or consent by the Agent or any Lender with respect to any of the provisions governing any Obligation or Loan Document; (iii) the insolvency of any Borrower, Guarantor or other Obligor; and (iv) any other action or circumstances that might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor. Each Borrower shall

105


be regarded, and shall be in the same position, as principal debtor with respect to the Obligations guaranteed hereunder.

(b)    Each Borrower expressly waives all rights it may have now or in the future under any statute, or at common law, or at law or in equity, or otherwise, to compel the Agent or Lenders to marshal assets or to proceed in respect of the Obligations guaranteed hereunder against any other Borrower, Guarantor or Obligor, any other party or against any security for the payment and performance of the Obligations before proceeding against, or as a condition to proceeding against, such Borrower. Each Borrower consents and agrees that the Agent or the Lenders may, at any time and from time to time, without notice or demand, whether before or after an actual or purported termination, repudiation or revocation of this Agreement by any Borrower, and without affecting the enforceability or continuing effectiveness hereof as to such Borrower: (i) with the consent of each Borrower, supplement, restate, modify, amend, increase, decrease, extent, renew or otherwise change the time for payment or the terms of this Agreement, any Loan Document or any part thereof, including any increase or decrease of the rate(s) of interest thereon; (ii) with the consent of each Borrower, supplement, restate, modify, amend, increase, decrease, or enter into or give any agreement with respect to, this Agreement, any Loan Document or any part thereof, or any of the Security Documents; (iii) waive, approve or consent to any action, condition, covenant, default, remedy, right, representation or term of this Agreement or any other Loan Document; (iv) accept partial payments; (v) release, reconvey, terminate, waive, abandon, fail to perfect, subordinate, exchange, substitute, transfer or enforce any security or guarantees, and apply any security and direct the order or manner of sale thereof as the Agents or Lenders in their sole and absolute discretion may determine; (vi) release any person from any personal liability with respect to this Agreement or any part thereof; (vii) settle, release on terms satisfactory to the Required Lenders or by operation of applicable Legal Requirements or otherwise liquidate or enforce any security or guaranty in any manner, consent to the transfer of any security and bid and purchase at any sale; or (viii) consent to the merger, change or any other restructuring or termination of the corporate or partnership existence of any Borrower or any other person, and correspondingly restructure the obligations evidenced hereby, and any such merger, change, restructuring or termination shall not affect the liability of any Borrower or the continuing effectiveness hereof, or the enforceability hereof with respect to all or any part of the obligations evidenced hereby. It is agreed among each Borrower, the Agent and Lenders that the foregoing consents and waivers are of the essence of the transaction contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and that, but for the provisions of this Section 9.15 and such waivers, the Agent and Lenders would decline to enter into this Agreement.

(c)    Each Borrower agrees that the provisions of this Section 9.15 are for the benefit of the Agent and the other Lenders and their respective successors, transferees, endorsees and assigns, and nothing herein contained shall impair, as between any other Borrower and the Agent or the other Lenders, the obligations of such other Borrower under the Loan Documents.

(d)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document, and except as set forth in Section 9.15(g) of this Agreement, each Borrower hereby expressly and irrevocably waives any and all rights at law or in equity to subrogation, reimbursement, exoneration, contribution, indemnification or set off and any and all defenses

106


available to a surety, guarantor or accommodation co-obligor. Each Borrower acknowledges and agrees that this waiver is intended to benefit the Agent and Lenders and shall not limit or otherwise affect such Borrower’s liability hereunder or the enforceability of this Section 17, and that the Agent, Lenders and their respective successors and assigns are intended third party beneficiaries of the waivers and agreements set forth in this Section 9.15(d).

(e)    If the Agent or any Lender may, under applicable law, proceed to realize its benefits under any of the Loan Documents, the Agent or any Lender may, at its sole option, determine which of its remedies or rights it may pursue without affecting any of its rights and remedies under this Section 9.15. If, in the exercise of any of its rights and remedies, the Agent or any Lender shall forfeit any of its rights or remedies, including its right to enter a deficiency judgment against any Borrower or any other Person, whether because of any applicable laws pertaining to “election of remedies” or the like, each Borrower hereby consents to such action by the Agent or such Lender and waives any claim based upon such action, even if such action by the Agent or such Lender shall result in a full or partial loss of any rights of subrogation that each Borrower might otherwise have had but for such action by the Agent or such Lender. Any election of remedies that results in the denial or impairment of the right of the Agent or any Lender to seek a deficiency judgment against any Borrower shall not impair any other Borrower’s obligation to pay the full amount of the Obligations.

(f)    Notwithstanding any provision herein contained to the contrary, each Borrower’s liability under this Section 9.15 (which liability is in any event in addition to amounts for which such Borrower is primarily liable under Article II of this Agreement) shall be limited to an amount not to exceed as of any date of determination the greater of:

(i)    the net amount of all Loans advanced to any other Borrower under this Agreement and then re-loaned or otherwise transferred to, or for the benefit of, such Borrower; and

(ii)    the amount that could be claimed by the Agent and Lenders from such Borrower under this Section 9.15 without rendering such claim voidable or avoidable under Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code or under any applicable state Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act or similar statute or common law after taking into account, among other things, such Borrower’s right of contribution and indemnification from each other Borrower under Section 9.15(g) of this Agreement.

(g)
Contribution with Respect to Guaranty Obligations.

(i)    To the extent that any Borrower shall make a payment under this Section 9.15 of all or any of the Obligations (other than Obligations related to Loans and other extensions of credit made directly or indirectly to that Borrower, or on such Borrower’s behalf, in which case such Borrower shall be primarily liable) (a “Guarantor Payment”) that, taking into account all other Guarantor Payments then previously or concurrently made by any other Borrower, exceeds the amount that such Borrower would otherwise have paid if each Borrower had paid the aggregate Obligations satisfied by

107


such Guarantor Payment in the same proportion that such Borrower’s “Allocable Amount” (as defined below) (as determined immediately prior to such Guarantor Payment) bore to the aggregate Allocable Amounts of each of the Borrowers as determined immediately prior to the making of such Guarantor Payment, then, following indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Obligations and termination of the Commitments, such Borrower shall be entitled to receive contribution and indemnification payments from, and be reimbursed by, each other Borrower for the amount of such excess, pro rata based upon their respective Allocable Amounts in effect immediately prior to such Guarantor Payment.

(ii)    As of any date of determination, the Allocable Amount” of any Borrower shall be equal to the maximum amount of the claim that could then be recovered from such Borrower under this Section 9.15 without rendering such claim voidable or avoidable under Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code or under any applicable state Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act or similar statute or common law.

(iii)    This Section 9.15(g) is intended only to define the relative rights of Borrowers and nothing set forth in this Section 9.15(g) is intended to or shall impair the obligations of Borrowers, jointly and severally, to pay any amounts as and when the same shall become due and payable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, including Section 9.15(a) of this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Section 9.15(g) shall limit the liability of any Borrower to pay the Loans made directly or indirectly to that Borrower, or on such Borrower’s behalf, and accrued interest, fees and expenses with respect thereto for which such Borrower shall be primarily liable.

(iv)    The parties hereto acknowledge that the rights of contribution and indemnification hereunder shall constitute assets of the Borrower to which such contribution and indemnification is owing.

(v)    The rights of the indemnifying Borrowers against other Borrowers under this Section 9.15 shall be exercisable on or after the Termination Date, but shall in all respects be subordinate to any Obligations owing to the Lenders.

(vi)    The liability of Borrowers under this Section 9.15 is in addition to and shall be cumulative with all liabilities of each Borrower to the Agent and Lenders under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which such Borrower is a party or in respect of any Obligations or obligation of the other Borrower, without any limitation as to amount, unless the instrument or agreement evidencing or creating such other liability specifically provides to the contrary.

(vii)    If acceleration of the time for payment of any amount payable by the Borrowers under this Agreement is stayed upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any of the Borrowers, all such amounts otherwise subject to acceleration under the terms of this Agreement shall nonetheless be payable jointly and

108


severally by the Borrower hereunder forthwith on demand by the Agent made at the request of the Required Lenders.

(viii)    All of the Borrowers and the Entities are engaged in related businesses and integrated to such an extent that the financial strength and flexibility of each such Person has a direct impact on the success of each other Person. Each Borrower and each Entity will derive substantial direct and indirect benefit from the extension of credit hereunder.

SECTION 9.16 Additional Waivers and Agreements.

(a)Notwithstanding any provision contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the contrary, it is the intention and agreement of each Borrower, Guarantor, Obligor and the Agent that the obligations of each Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor under the Loan Documents shall be valid and enforceable against each Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, if any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document creating any obligation of a Borrower, Guarantor or Obligor in favor of any Lender shall be declared to be invalid or unenforceable in any respect or to any extent, it is the stated intention and agreement of each Borrower, Guarantor, Obligor and Lender that any balance of the obligation created by such provision and all other obligations of each Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor to Lenders created by other provisions of the Loan Documents shall remain valid and enforceable. Likewise, if any sums which a Lender may be otherwise entitled to collect from a Borrower, Guarantor or Obligor under the Loan Documents shall be declared to be in excess of those permitted under any law (including any federal or state fraudulent conveyance or like statute or rule of law) applicable to the Obligations and/or the Guaranteed Obligations (as defined in the Guaranty) of such Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor, it is the stated intention and agreement of such Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor and the Lenders that all sums not in excess of those permitted under such applicable law shall remain fully collectible by Lenders from such Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor and such excess sums shall nevertheless survive as a subordinate obligation of such Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor, junior in right to the claims of general unsecured creditors, but prior to the claims of equityholders in such Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor. This provision shall control every other provision of the Loan Documents.



(b)
Each Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor under the Loan Documents hereby waives:


(i)    any defense based upon Agent or any Lender’s election of any remedy against any Borrower, any Guarantor or any Obligor, including without limitation, the defense to enforcement of this Agreement (the “Gradsky” defense based upon Union Bank v. Gradsky, 265 Cal. App. 2d 40 (1968) or subsequent cases) which, absent this waiver, a guarantor or indemnitor would have by virtue of an election by Agent or any Lender to conduct a non-judicial foreclosure sale of any Property securing the Obligations, it being understood by each Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor that any such non-judicial foreclosure sale will destroy, by operation of California Civil Code of

109


Civil Procedure Section 580d, all rights of any party to a deficiency judgment against any Borrower, and, as a consequence,

will destroy all rights which a guarantor or indemnitor would otherwise have (including, without limitation, the right of subrogation, the right of reimbursement, and the right of contribution) to proceed against any Borrower and to recover any such amount, and that Agent and Lenders could be otherwise estopped from pursuing guarantor or indemnitor for a deficiency judgment after a non-judicial foreclosure sale on the theory that a guarantor or indemnitor should be exonerated if a lender elects a remedy that eliminates the guarantor’s or indemnitor’s subrogation, reimbursement or contribution rights;

(ii)    any rights under California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 580a and 726b, which provide, among other things: that a creditor must file a complaint for deficiency within three (3) months of non-judicial foreclosure sale or judicial foreclosure sale, as applicable; that a fair market value hearing must be held; and that the amount of the deficiency judgment shall be limited to the amount by which the unpaid debt exceeds the fair market value of the security, but not more that the amount by which the unpaid debt exceeds the sale price of the security;

(iii)    any rights, under Sections 2845 or 2850 of the California Civil Code, or otherwise, to require Agent to institute suit against, or to exhaust any rights and remedies which Agent or the Lenders has or may have against any Borrower, any Guarantor or any Obligor, or against any collateral for the Obligations provided by any Borrower, any Guarantor, or any Obligor and any defense arising by reason of any disability or other defense (other than the defense that the Obligations shall have been fully and finally performed and indefeasibly paid) of Borrowers, Guarantor, or Obligors or by reason of the cessation from any cause whatsoever of the liability of any Borrower, any Guarantor, or any Obligor in respect thereof; and

(iv)    (1) any rights to assert against Agent and Lenders any defense (legal or equitable), set-off, counterclaim, or claim which any Guarantor may now or at any time hereafter have against Borrowers or any other Person liable to Agent and Lenders; (2) any defense, set-off, counterclaim, or claim, of any kind or nature, arising directly or indirectly from the present or future lack of perfection, sufficiency, validity, or enforceability of the Obligations or any security therefor; (3) any defense any Guarantor has to performance hereunder, and any right any Guarantor has to be exonerated, provided by Sections 2819, 2822, or 2825 of the California Civil Code, or otherwise, arising by reason of: the impairment or suspension of the Agent’s or Lenders’ rights or remedies against any Borrower; the alteration by Agent or Lenders of the Obligations; any discharge of any Borrower’s obligations to Agent or Lenders by operation of law as a result of any intervention or omission; or the acceptance by Agent or Lenders of anything in partial satisfaction of the Obligations; (4) the benefit of any statute of limitations affecting any Guarantor’s liability under the Loan Documents or the enforcement thereof, and any act which shall defer or delay the operation of any statute of limitations applicable to the Obligations shall similarly operate to defer or delay the operation of such statute of limitations applicable to any Guarantor’s liability under the Loan Documents.





(v)    Each Guarantor absolutely, unconditionally, knowingly, and expressly waives any defense arising by reason of or deriving from election of remedies by the Agent

and Lenders including any election by Agent or any Lender under Bankruptcy Code Section 1111 (b) to limit the amount of, or any collateral securing, its claim against Borrowers.

(vi)    without limiting the generality of the foregoing or any other provision hereof, each Borrower, Guarantor and Obligor absolutely, knowingly, unconditionally, and expressly waives any and all benefits or defenses which might otherwise be available to such Borrower, Guarantor or Obligor under any one or more of California Civil Code Sections 2799, 2808, 2809, 2810, 2815, 2819, 2820, 2821, 2822, 2825, 2839, 2845, 2848, 2849, and 2850, California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 580a, 580b, 580c, 580d, and 726, California Uniform Commercial Code Sections 3116, 3118, 3119, 3419, 3605, 9504, and 9507, and Chapter 2 of Title 14 of Part 4 of Division 3 of the California Civil Code.

(vii)    Each Guarantor hereby acknowledges and agrees that neither Agent, any Lender nor any other Person shall be under any obligation (i) to marshal any assets in favor of Guarantors or in payment of any or all of the liabilities of Borrowers under the Guaranty or the obligations of Guarantors hereunder or (ii) to pursue any other remedy that Guarantors may or may not be able to pursue themselves, any right to which each Guarantor hereby waives.

(viii)    Each Guarantor warrants and agrees that each of the waivers set forth in this Section 17 is made with full knowledge of its significance and consequences and after consultation with legal counsel, and that if any of such waivers are determined to be contrary to any applicable law or public policy, such waivers shall be effective only to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

(ix)    Any and all rights of subrogation, reimbursement, indemnification and contribution and any other rights and defenses that are or may become available to Guarantor by reason of California Civil Code Sections 2787 to 2855, inclusive, 2899 and 3433 including, without limitation, any and all rights or defenses Guarantor may have by reason of protection afforded to the principal with respect to any of the Obligations or to any other guarantor of any of the Obligations with respect to such obligations under its guaranty, in either case, pursuant to the antideficiency or other laws of the state of California limiting or discharging the principal’s indebtedness or such other guarantor’s obligations, including, without limitation, California Code of Civil Procedure Sections 580a, 580b, 580d or 726;

(x)    all rights and defenses arising out of an election of remedies by the Lenders, even though that election of remedies, such as a nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to security for the Obligations, has destroyed Guarantor’s rights of subrogation and reimbursement against Borrower by the operation of California Code of Civil

111


Procedure Section 580d or otherwise, and even though that election of remedies by the Lenders has destroyed Guarantor’s rights of contribution against another guarantor of any of the Obligations; and

(xi)    any right Guarantor might otherwise have under Section 2822 of the California Civil Code or similar law or otherwise to have Borrower designate the portion of any such obligation to be satisfied in the event that Borrower provides partial satisfaction of such obligation. Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that Borrower may already have agreed

with the Lenders, or may hereafter agree, that in any such event the designation of the portion of the obligation to be satisfied shall, to the extent not expressly made by the terms of the Loan Documents, be made by the Lenders rather than by Borrower.

(c)The Loan Documents currently contain jury trial waivers. Such waivers shall continue to apply to the fullest extent now or hereafter permitted by applicable law. BORROWERS, AGENT AND LENDERS PREFER THAT ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM BE RESOLVED IN LITIGATION SUBJECT TO A JURY TRIAL WAIVER AS SET FORTH IN THE LOAN DOCUMENTS. IF, HOWEVER, UNDER THEN APPLICABLE LAW, A PRE-DISPUTE JURY TRIAL WAIVER OF THE TYPE PROVIDED FOR IN THE LOAN DOCUMENTS IS UNENFORCEABLE IN LITIGATION IF SUCH LITIGATION OCCURS IN CALIFORNIA (ALTHOUGH THE PARTIES DO NOT INTEND HEREBY TO WAIVE THEIR CONSENT TO JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK), TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM, CAUSE OF ACTION OR CONTROVERSY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE ENVIRONMENTAL INDEMNITY (EACH, A CLAIM”), THEN, UPON THE WRITTEN REQUEST OF ANY PARTY TO SUCH LITIGATION, SUCH CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS OF LAW OR FACT RELATING THERETO, SHALL BE DETERMINED EXCLUSIVELY BY A JUDICIAL REFERENCE PROCEEDING. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THE PREVIOUS PARAGRAPH, VENUE FOR ANY SUCH REFERENCE PROCEEDING SHALL BE IN THE STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE COUNTY OR DISTRICT WHERE VENUE IS APPROPRIATE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW (THE “COURT”). THE PARTIES SHALL SELECT A SINGLE NEUTRAL REFEREE, WHO SHALL BE A RETIRED STATE OR FEDERAL JUDGE. IF THE PARTIES CANNOT AGREE UPON A REFEREE, THE COURT SHALL APPOINT THE REFEREE. THE REFEREE SHALL REPORT A STATEMENT OF DECISION TO THE COURT. NOTHING IN THIS PARAGRAPH, HOWEVER, SHALL LIMIT THE RIGHT OF ANY PARTY AT ANY TIME TO EXERCISE SELF-HELP REMEDIES, FORECLOSE AGAINST COLLATERAL OR OBTAIN PROVISIONAL REMEDIES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, REPLEVIN, INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, ATTACHMENT OR THE APPOINTMENT OF A RECEIVER). THE PARTIES SHALL BEAR THE FEES AND EXPENSES OF THE REFEREE EQUALLY UNLESS THE REFEREE ORDERS OTHERWISE. THE REFEREE ALSO SHALL DETERMINE ALL ISSUES RELATING TO THE APPLICABILITY, INTERPRETATION, AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PARAGRAPH. THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY CLAIM DETERMINED BY REFERENCE PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL NOT BE ADJUDICATED BY A JURY.

112



SECTION 9.17 Effect on Existing Credit Agreement.
