SECTION 2. GUARANTEE.

2.1. Guarantee. Each Guarantor unconditionally guarantees, to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns, jointly with the other Guarantors and severally, as a primary obligor and not merely as a surety, the due and punctual payment and performance by the applicable Loan Party when due of the Loan Document Obligations (other than, with respect to any Guarantor, any Excluded Swap Obligations of such Guarantor). Each of the Guarantors further agrees that the Loan Document Obligations may be extended or renewed, in whole or in part, without notice to or further assent from it, and that it will remain bound upon its guarantee notwithstanding any extension or renewal of any Loan Document Obligation. Each of the Guarantors waives (but only during the term of this Agreement) (except with respect to such rights as are prohibited from being waived by applicable law) presentment to, demand of payment from and protest to the Borrower or any other Loan Party of any of the Loan Document Obligations, and also waives notice of acceptance of its guarantee and notice of protest for nonpayment.

2.2. Guarantee of Payment. Each of the Guarantors further agrees that its guarantee hereunder constitutes a guarantee of payment when due and not of collection, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, waives any right to require that any resort be had by the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party to any security held for the payment of the Loan Document Obligations or to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party in favor of the Borrower or any other Person.

 

-6-


2.3. No Limitations.

(a) Except for termination of a Guarantor’s obligations hereunder as expressly provided in Section 9.16, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, and shall not be subject to any defense (other than defense of payment or performance) or set-off, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of the Loan Document Obligations or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be discharged or impaired or otherwise affected by (i) the failure of the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy under the provisions of any Loan Document or otherwise; (ii) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or any release from any of the terms or provisions of, any Loan Document or any other agreement, including with respect to any other Guarantor under this Agreement; (iii) the release of any security held by the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party for the Loan Document Obligations or any of them; (iv) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of the Loan Document Obligations; or (v) any other act or omission that may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of any Guarantor or otherwise operate as a discharge of any Guarantor as a matter of law or equity (other than the payment in full of all the Loan Document Obligations or cash collateralization of Letters of Credit as permitted pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement). Each Guarantor expressly authorizes the Secured Parties to take and hold security for the payment and performance of the Obligations, to exchange, waive or release any or all such security (with or without consideration), to enforce or apply such security and direct the order and manner of any sale thereof in their sole discretion or to release or substitute any one or more other guarantors or obligors upon or in respect of the Obligations, all without affecting the obligations of any Guarantor hereunder.

(b) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Borrower or any other Loan Party or the unenforceability of the Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Borrower or any other Loan Party, other than the payment in full of all the Loan Document Obligations. The Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties may, at their election, foreclose on any security held by one or more of them by one or more judicial or nonjudicial sales, accept an assignment of any such security in lieu of foreclosure, compromise or adjust any part of the Obligations, make any other accommodation with the Borrower or any other Loan Party or exercise any other right or remedy available to them against the Borrower or any other Loan Party, without affecting or impairing in any way the liability of any Guarantor hereunder except to the extent the Loan Document Obligations have been paid in full. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor waives any defense arising out of any such election even though such election operates, pursuant to applicable law, to impair or to extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of such Guarantor against the Borrower or any other Loan Party, as the case may be, or any security.

 

-7-


2.4. Reinstatement. Each of the Guarantors agrees that its guarantee hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, to the extent at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of the Borrower, any other Loan Party or otherwise.

2.5. Agreement To Pay; Subrogation. In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right that the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party has at law or in equity against any Guarantor by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Borrower or any other Loan Party to pay any Loan Document Obligation when and as the same shall become due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, after notice of prepayment or otherwise, each Guarantor hereby promises to and will forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, to the Administrative Agent for distribution to the applicable Secured Parties in cash the amount of such unpaid Loan Document Obligation. Upon payment by any Guarantor of any sums to the Administrative Agent as provided above, all rights of such Guarantor against the Borrower or any other Loan Party arising as a result thereof by way of right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnity or otherwise shall in all respects be subject to Section 8.

2.6. Information. Each Guarantor assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of the Borrower’s and each other Loan Party’s financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Loan Document Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks that such Guarantor assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that none of the Administrative Agent or the other Secured Parties will have any duty to advise such Guarantor of information known to it or any of them regarding such circumstances or risks.

2.7. Savings. In any action or proceeding involving any state corporate limited partnership or limited liability company law, or any applicable state, federal or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other law affecting the rights of creditors generally, if the obligations of any Guarantor under Section 2.1 would otherwise be held or determined to be void, voidable, invalid or unenforceable, or subordinated to the claims of any other creditors, on account of the amount of its liability under Section 2.1, then, notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, the amount of such liability shall, without any further action by such Guarantor, any Loan Party or any other person, be automatically limited and reduced to the highest amount (after giving effect to the right of contribution established in Section 8.2) that is valid and enforceable and not subordinated to the claims of other creditors as determined in such action or proceeding.

2.8. Keepwell. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor hereby jointly and severally absolutely, unconditionally, and irrevocably undertakes to provide such funds or other support as may be needed from time to time by each other Guarantor to honor all of its obligations under this Section 2 in respect of any Swap Obligation (provided, however, that each Qualified ECP Guarantor shall only be liable under this Section 2.8 for the maximum amount of such liability that can be hereby incurred without rendering its obligations under this Section 2.8, or otherwise under this Section 2, voidable under applicable law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer, and not for any greater amount). The obligations of each Qualified ECP Guarantor under this Section 2.8 shall remain in full force and effect until a discharge of the

 

-8-


Guarantor Obligations. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor intends that this Section 2.8 constitute, and this Section 2.8 shall be deemed to constitute, a “keepwell, support, or other agreement” for the benefit of each other Guarantor for all purposes of section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act.

SECTION 3. GRANT OF SECURITY INTEREST. Each Grantor hereby collaterally assigns, pledges and grants to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, a security interest in, all of the following property now owned or at any time hereafter acquired by such Grantor or in which such Grantor now has or at any time in the future may acquire any right, title or interest (collectively, the “Collateral”), as collateral security for the prompt and complete payment and performance when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of such Grantor’s Obligations:

(a) all Accounts;

(b) Letter of Credit rights;

(c) all Chattel Paper;

(d) all Contracts;

(e) all Deposit Accounts;

(f) all Documents;

(g) all Equipment;

(h) all General Intangibles;

(i) all Instruments;

(j) all Intellectual Property;

(k) all Inventory;

(l) all Investment Property;

(m) all Receivables (including without limitation Government Receivables);

(n) commercial tort claims as listed on Schedule E;

(o) all books and records pertaining to the Collateral; and

(p) to the extent not otherwise included, all Proceeds and products of any and all of the foregoing and all collateral security and guarantees given by any Person with respect to any of the foregoing;

SECTION 4. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES. To induce the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties to make their respective extensions of credit to the Borrower under the Credit Agreement, each Grantor hereby represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and each Lender that:

4.1. Perfected First Priority Liens. The security interests granted pursuant to this Agreement with respect to Collateral in which a security interest may be perfected by filing, recording or registering financing statements in a filing office in the United States (or any political subdivision thereof) and its territories and possessions pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code in such jurisdictions (“U.S. Collateral”) (a) upon timely completion of the filings, recordings, and registrations specified on Schedule B and payment of all applicable filing fees in connection therewith will constitute valid perfected security interests in all such U.S. Collateral in favor of the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, as collateral security for such Grantor’s Obligations, enforceable (subject to the effect of bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, moratorium and other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and general equitable principles, whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) in accordance with the terms hereof under the applicable Uniform Commercial Code against all creditors of such Grantor and any Persons purporting to purchase such U.S. Collateral from such Grantor; provided, that additional filings may be required to perfect the Administrative Agent’s security interest in any Intellectual Property acquired after the Closing Date and (b) are prior to all other Liens on the U.S. Collateral in existence on the Closing Date except for Permitted Liens.

4.2. Organizational Information. On the Closing Date, such Grantor’s (i) chief executive office, (ii) exact legal name, (iii) jurisdiction of formation, organization or incorporation (as applicable) and (iv) organizational identification number (if any) is as specified on Schedule C.

4.3. Investment Property. The shares of Pledged Stock pledged by such Grantor hereunder constitute all the issued and outstanding shares of all classes of the Capital Stock of each Issuer owned by such Grantor (other than Capital Stock in Non-Profit Entities, Foreign Subsidiaries, Domestic Foreign Holding Companies, Insurance Subsidiaries and Unrestricted Subsidiaries not required to be pledged pursuant to the Loan Documents). The Pledged LLC Interests pledged by the Grantors constitute all the issued and outstanding Capital Stock of each Issuer that is a limited liability company in which any Grantor has any right, title or interest (other than Capital Stock in Non-Profit Entities, Foreign Subsidiaries, Domestic Foreign Holding Companies, Insurance Subsidiaries and Unrestricted Subsidiaries not required to be pledged pursuant to the Loan Documents). All the shares of the Pledged Stock and the Pledged LLC Interests have been duly and validly issued and in the case of the Pledged Stock are fully paid and nonassessable. To the knowledge of such Grantor, each of the Pledged Notes constitutes the legally valid and binding obligation of the obligor with respect thereto, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to the effects of bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws relating to or affecting creditors’ rights generally and general equitable principles (whether considered in a proceeding in equity or

 

-12-

4.4. Intellectual Property. Schedule D lists all U.S. federal registrations and applications for registration of Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor in its own name on the Closing Date. Except as set forth in Schedule D or as would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, on the Closing Date, all material Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor is subsisting, unexpired and, to the knowledge of the Grantor, valid and enforceable, has not been abandoned and does not infringe the intellectual property rights of any other Person. Except as set forth in Schedule D, on the Closing Date, none of the material Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor is the subject of any material exclusive licensing agreement pursuant to which such Grantor is the licensor. No holding, decision or judgment has been rendered by any Governmental Authority which would limit, cancel or question the validity of, or such Grantor’s rights in, any Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor in any respect that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. No action or proceeding is pending, or, to the knowledge of such Grantor, threatened, on the Closing Date (i) seeking to limit, cancel or question the validity of any material Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor or such Grantor’s ownership interest therein, or (ii) which, if adversely determined, would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on the value of any Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor.

SECTION 5. COVENANTS. Each Grantor covenants and agrees with the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties that, from and after the date of this Agreement until the Secured Obligations (other than obligations under or in respect of Swap Agreements) (excluding contingent indemnity obligations) shall have been paid in full, no Letter of Credit shall be outstanding (or shall have been cash collateralized or replaced in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent) and the Commitments shall have terminated:

5.1. Delivery of Instruments, Certificated Securities and Chattel Paper. If any material amount payable under or in connection with any of the Collateral owned by such Grantor shall be or become evidenced by any Instrument, Certificated Security or Chattel Paper, such Instrument (other than checks delivered in the ordinary course of business which will promptly be deposited for collection), Certificated Security or Chattel Paper shall be promptly delivered to the Administrative Agent, duly endorsed in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, to be held as Collateral pursuant to this Agreement; provided that no Grantor shall be obligated to deliver to the Administrative Agent any such Instrument, Certificated Securities (other than Pledged Securities issued by a Restricted Subsidiary of Holdings) or Chattel Paper held by such Grantor with a face amount less than $2,500,000.

5.2. Maintenance of Insurance. Each Grantor or an Affiliate on behalf of such Grantor will at all times maintain insurance, at such Grantor’s own expense to the extent and in the manner provided in the Credit Agreement.

5.3. Chief Executive Office, Name, etc. Such Grantor will not, except upon 10 days’ (or such shorter period as agreed to by the Administrative Agent) prior written notice to the Administrative Agent and delivery to the Administrative Agent of all additional financing statements and other documents reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent to maintain the validity, perfection and priority of the security interests provided for herein:

(i) change its jurisdiction of organization or the location of its chief executive office or sole place of business from that referred to in Section 4.2;

Except as a result of a transaction permitted under the Credit Agreement, any sums paid upon or in respect of such Investment Property upon the liquidation or dissolution of any Issuer shall be applied by the relevant Grantor as set forth in the Credit Agreement.

(b) Without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, such Grantor will not (i) Dispose of the Investment Property or Proceeds thereof constituting Collateral (except pursuant to a transaction permitted by the Credit Agreement) or (ii) create, incur or permit to exist any Lien with respect to, any of the Investment Property or Proceeds thereof constituting Collateral, or any interest therein, except for the Liens created by this Agreement or Permitted Liens.

(c) In the case of each Grantor which is an Issuer of Pledged Stock or Pledged LLC Interests, such Issuer agrees that (i) it will be bound by the terms of this Agreement relating to the Investment Property issued by it and will comply with such terms insofar as such terms are applicable to it and (ii) the terms of Sections 6.3(c) and 6.7 shall apply to it, mutatis mutandis, with respect to all actions that may be required of it pursuant to Section 6.3(c) or 6.7 with respect to the Investment Property issued by it.

5.5. Intellectual Property.

(a) Except as would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, such Grantor will (i) continue to use each material Trademark owned by such Grantor (based upon such Grantor’s offering of products and/or services) on each and every trademark class of goods for which such trademark is currently used, to the extent necessary in order to maintain such Trademark in full force free from any claim of abandonment for non-use, (ii) maintain at least the same standards of quality of products and services offered under such Trademark as are currently maintained, (iii) use such Trademark with the appropriate notice of registration and all other notices and legends required by applicable Requirements of Law, and (iv) not knowingly (and not permit any licensee or sublicensee thereof to) do any act or knowingly omit to do any act whereby such Trademark may become invalidated or materially destroyed, invalidated, harmed or impaired.

(c) Such Grantor will not knowingly do any act or knowingly omit to do any act whereby any material Copyright owned by Grantor may become invalidated or otherwise materially impaired or fall into the public domain for so long as such Copyright is material to the business of the Grantor, except at the end of its statutory term.

(d) Except as would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, such Grantor will not knowingly do any act that knowingly uses any material Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor to infringe the intellectual property rights of any other Person.

(g) Such Grantor will take commercially reasonable steps to maintain each registration of the material Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor for so long as such Intellectual Property is material to the business of such Grantor, except as would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, including, without limitation, filing of applications for renewal, affidavits of use and affidavits of incontestability.

(h) In the event that, to the knowledge of the Grantor, any material Intellectual Property owned by such Grantor is infringed, misappropriated or diluted by a third party, such Grantor shall (i) take such actions as such Grantor shall reasonably deem appropriate under the circumstances to protect such material Intellectual Property and (ii) if such infringement, misappropriation or dilution would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, promptly notify the Administrative Agent after it learns thereof and, if appropriate, sue for infringement, misappropriation or dilution, seek injunctive relief where appropriate and seek to recover any and all damages for such infringement, misappropriation or dilution.

Upon the cure or waiver of any Event of Default in accordance with the Credit Agreement, each Grantor shall have the right to receive the Proceeds that it would be authorized to receive and retain pursuant to this Agreement absent an Event of Default.

6.5. Application of Proceeds. At such intervals as may be agreed upon by the applicable Grantor and the Administrative Agent, or, if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, with the consent of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent may, or upon the request of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent shall, apply all or any part of Proceeds constituting Collateral held in the Collateral Account in payment of the Obligations in the following order: first, to all incurred and unpaid fees and reasonable expenses of the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party with respect to the Credit Agreement, the other Loan Documents, any Specified Swap Agreement, any agreement related to Cash Management Obligations or the Collateral; second, to the Administrative Agent, for application by it towards payment of amounts then due and owing and remaining unpaid in respect of the applicable Obligations, pro rata among the Secured Parties according to the amounts of the applicable Obligations then due and owing and remaining unpaid to the Secured Parties; third, to the Administrative Agent, for application by it towards prepayment of the applicable Obligations, pro rata among the Secured Parties according to the amounts of the applicable Obligations then

 

-20-


held by the Secured Parties; and fourth, any balance of such Proceeds remaining after the applicable Obligations (other than contingent obligations under general indemnification provisions as to which no claim is pending) shall have been paid in full, no Letters of Credit shall be outstanding (unless cash collateralized or subject to backstop letters of credit, in each case on terms satisfactory to the Issuing Bank) and the Commitments shall have terminated shall be paid over to the relevant Borrower or whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no amount received from any Guarantor shall be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligation of such Guarantor.

6.6. Code and Other Remedies.

(a) If any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders), on behalf of the Secured Parties, may exercise, in addition to all other rights and remedies granted to them in this Agreement and in any other instrument or agreement securing, evidencing or relating to the Obligations, all rights and remedies of a secured party under the New York UCC or any other applicable law (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights to the extent not permitted by applicable law). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders), without further demand of performance or other demand, presentment, protest, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any notice required by law referred to below), to or upon any Grantor or any other Person (all and each of which demands, defenses, advertisements and notices are hereby waived to the extent permitted by law), may in such circumstances forthwith collect, receive, appropriate and realize upon the Collateral, or any part thereof, and/or may forthwith sell, lease, assign, give option or options to purchase, or otherwise dispose of and deliver the Collateral or any part thereof (or contract to do any of the foregoing), in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker’s board or office of the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party or elsewhere upon such terms and conditions as it may deem advisable and at such prices as it may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. The Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) shall have the right upon any such public sale or sales, and, to the extent permitted by law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase the whole or any part of the Collateral so sold, free of any right or equity of redemption in any Grantor, which right or equity is hereby waived and released. Each Grantor further agrees, at the Administrative Agent’s request, to assemble the Collateral and make it available to the Administrative Agent at places which the Administrative Agent shall reasonably select, whether at such Grantor’s premises or elsewhere. The Administrative Agent shall apply the net proceeds of any action taken by it pursuant to this Section 6.6, after deducting all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind incurred in connection therewith or incidental to the care or safekeeping of any of the Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties hereunder, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, to the payment in whole or in part of the Obligations, in such order as set forth in Section 6.5, and only after such application and after the payment by the Administrative Agent of any other amount required by any provision of law, including, without limitation, Section 9-615 of the New York UCC, need the Administrative Agent account for the surplus, if any, to any Grantor. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Grantor waives all claims, damages and demands it may acquire against the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party arising

 

-21-


out of the exercise by them of any rights hereunder. If any notice of a proposed sale or other disposition of Collateral shall be required by law, such notice shall be deemed reasonable and proper if given at least ten days before such sale or other disposition.

(b) If at any time when the Administrative Agent shall determine to exercise its right to sell all or any part of the Pledged Stock pursuant to this Section, and if such Pledged Stock or the part thereof to be sold shall not, for any reason whatsoever, be effectively registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state, the Administrative Agent is hereby expressly authorized to sell such Pledged Stock or such part thereof by private sale in such manner and under such circumstances as the Administrative Agent may deem commercially reasonable in order that such sale may legally be effected without such registration. The Administrative Agent shall sell all or any part of the Pledged Stock at a price which the Administrative Agent deems commercially reasonable under the circumstances.

6.7. Deficiency. Each Grantor shall remain liable for any deficiency if the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay such Grantor’s Obligations and the reasonable fees and disbursements of any attorneys employed by the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party to collect such deficiency.

SECTION 7. THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT.

7.1. Administrative Agent’s Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact, etc.

(a) Until the termination of this Agreement or the release of such Grantor pursuant to Section 9.16, each Grantor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints the Administrative Agent and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of such Grantor and in the name of such Grantor or in its own name, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, to take any and all appropriate action and to execute any and all documents and instruments which may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Grantor hereby gives the Administrative Agent the power and right, on behalf of such Grantor, without notice to (except any notice otherwise required herein or in the other Loan Documents) or assent by such Grantor, to do any or all of the following:

(i) in the name of such Grantor or its own name, or otherwise, take possession of and endorse and collect any checks, drafts, notes, acceptances or other instruments for the payment of moneys due under any Receivable (except where such Receivables are subject to Retained Rights) or Contract or with respect to, any other Collateral and file any claim or take any other action or proceeding in any court of law or equity or otherwise deemed appropriate by the Administrative Agent for the purpose of collecting any and all such moneys due under any Receivable (except where such Receivables are subject to Retained Rights) or Contract or with respect to any other Collateral whenever payable;

(ii) in the case of any Intellectual Property owned by or licensed to the Grantor, execute and deliver, and have recorded, any and all agreements, instruments,

 

-22-


documents and papers as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request to evidence the Administrative Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ security interest in such Intellectual Property and the goodwill and general intangibles of such Grantor relating thereto or represented thereby;

(iii) pay or discharge taxes and Liens (other than Permitted Liens) levied or placed on or threatened against the Collateral, effect any repairs or any insurance called for by the terms of this Agreement and pay all or any part of the premiums therefor and the costs thereof;

(iv) execute, in connection with any sale provided for in Sections 6.6 or 6.7, any endorsements, assignments or other instruments of conveyance or transfer with respect to the Collateral; and

(v) (1) upon three (3) Business Days’ written notice to the applicable Grantor, direct any party liable for any payment under any of the Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights) to make payment of any and all moneys due or to become due thereunder directly to the Administrative Agent or as the Administrative Agent shall direct; (2) upon three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice to the applicable Grantor, ask or demand for, collect, and receive payment of and receipt for, any and all moneys, claims and other amounts due or to become due at any time in respect of or arising out of any Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights); (3) sign and endorse any invoices, freight or express bills, bills of lading, storage or warehouse receipts, drafts against Grantors, assignments, verifications, notices and other documents in connection with any of the Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights); (4) commence and prosecute any suits, actions or proceedings at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect the Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights) or any portion thereof and to enforce any other right in respect of any Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights); (5) defend any suit, action or proceeding brought against such Grantor with respect to any Collateral; (6) settle, compromise or adjust any such suit, action or proceeding and, in connection therewith, give such discharges or releases as the Administrative Agent may deem appropriate; (7) assign any Copyright, Patent or Trademark (along with the goodwill of the business to which any such Trademark pertains), throughout the world for such term or terms, on such conditions, and in such manner, as the Administrative Agent shall in its reasonable discretion determine; and (8) generally, sell, transfer, pledge and make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with any of the Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights) as fully and completely as though the Administrative Agent were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes, and do, at the Administrative Agent’s option and such Grantor’s expense, at any time, or from time to time, all acts and things which the Administrative Agent deems necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon the Collateral (except in respect of any Receivable subject to Retained Rights) and the Administrative Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ security interests therein and to effect the intent of this Agreement, all as fully and effectively as such Grantor might do.

 

-23-


Anything in this Section 7.1(a) to the contrary notwithstanding, the Administrative Agent agrees that it will not exercise any rights under the power of attorney provided for in this Section 7.1(a) unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and the Required Lenders have consented to or requested that the Administrative Agent exercise such rights.

(b) If any Grantor fails to perform or comply with any of its agreements contained herein, the Administrative Agent, at its option during the existence of an Event of Default, but without any obligation so to do, may perform or comply, or otherwise cause performance or compliance, with such agreement.

(c) The reasonable, out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent incurred in connection with actions undertaken as provided in this Section 7.1 shall be payable by such Grantor to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 10.5 of the Credit Agreement.

(d) Each Grantor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof. All powers, authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until this Agreement is terminated and the security interests created hereby are released.

7.2. Duty of Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent’s sole duty with respect to the custody, safekeeping and physical preservation of the Collateral in its possession, under Section 9-207 of the New York UCC or otherwise, shall be to deal with it in the same manner as the Administrative Agent deals with similar property for its own account. Neither the Administrative Agent, any Secured Party nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon any of the Collateral or for any delay in doing so or shall be under any obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Collateral upon the request of any Grantor or any other Person or to take any other action whatsoever with regard to the Collateral or any part thereof. The powers conferred on the Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties hereunder are solely to protect the Administrative Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party to exercise any such powers. The Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties shall be accountable only for amounts that they actually receive as a result of the exercise of such powers, and neither they nor any of their officers, directors, employees or agents shall be responsible to any Grantor for any act or failure to act hereunder, except for their own gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct or material breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.

7.3. Execution of Financing Statements. Pursuant to the New York UCC and any other applicable law, each Grantor authorizes the Administrative Agent to file or record financing statements and other filing or recording documents or instruments with respect to the Collateral without the signature of such Grantor in such form and in such offices as the Administrative Agent determines appropriate to perfect the security interests of the Administrative Agent under this Agreement; provided, that Administrative Agent shall provide the applicable Grantor (or the Borrower) with a photocopy of any such filings. Each Grantor authorizes the Administrative Agent to use the collateral description “all assets of the Debtor” (as the term Debtor is defined in such financing statement or words of similar effect). A photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement shall be sufficient as a financing statement or other filing or recording document or instrument for filing or recording in any jurisdiction.

 

-24-


7.4. Authority of Administrative Agent. Each Grantor acknowledges that the rights and responsibilities of the Administrative Agent under this Agreement with respect to any action taken by the Administrative Agent or the exercise or non-exercise by the Administrative Agent of any option, voting right, request, judgment or other right or remedy provided for herein or resulting or arising out of this Agreement shall, as between the Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties, be governed by the Credit Agreement and by such other agreements with respect thereto as may exist from time to time among them, but, as between the Administrative Agent and the Grantors, the Administrative Agent shall be conclusively presumed to be acting as agent for the Secured Parties with full and valid authority so to act or refrain from acting, and no Grantor shall be under any obligation, or entitlement, to make any inquiry respecting such authority.

SECTION 8. INDEMNITY, SUBROGATION AND SUBORDINATION.

8.1. Indemnity and Subrogation. In addition to all such rights of indemnity and subrogation as the Guarantors may have under applicable law (but subject to Section 8.3), the Borrower agrees that (a) in the event a payment of an obligation shall be made by any Guarantor under this Agreement, the Borrower shall indemnify such Guarantor for the full amount of such payment and such Guarantor shall be subrogated to the rights of the Person to whom such payment shall have been made to the extent of such payment and (b) in the event any assets of any Grantor shall be sold pursuant to this Agreement or any other Security Document to satisfy in whole or in part an obligation owed to any Secured Party, the Borrower shall indemnify such Grantor in an amount equal to the greater of the book value or the fair market value of the assets so sold.

8.2. Contribution and Subrogation. Each Guarantor and Grantor (a “Contributing Party”) agrees (subject to Section 8.3) that, in the event a payment shall be made by any other Guarantor hereunder in respect of any Obligation or assets of any other Grantor shall be sold pursuant to any Security Document to satisfy any Obligation owed to any Secured Party and such other Guarantor (the “Claiming Party”) shall not have been fully indemnified by the Borrower as provided in Section 8.1, the Contributing Party shall indemnify the Claiming Party in an amount equal to the amount of such payment or the greater of the book value or the fair market value of such assets, as the case may be, in each case multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the net worth of the Contributing Party on the Closing Date and the denominator shall be the aggregate net worth of all the Guarantors and Grantors on the Closing Date (or, in the case of any Guarantor or Grantor becoming a party hereto pursuant to Section 9.14, the date of the supplement hereto executed and delivered by such Guarantor or Grantor). Any Contributing Party making any payment to a Claiming Party pursuant to this Section 8.2 shall be subrogated to the rights of such Claiming Party under Section 8.1 to the extent of such payment.

8.3. Subordination. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, all rights of the Guarantors and Grantors under Sections 8.1 and 8.2 and all other rights of indemnity, contribution or subrogation under applicable law or otherwise shall be fully

 

-25-


subordinated to the payment in full of the Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations under general indemnification provisions as to which no claim is pending). No failure on the part of the Borrower or any Guarantor or Grantor to make the payments required by Sections 8.1 and 8.2 (or any other payments required under applicable law or otherwise) shall in any respect limit the obligations and liabilities of any Guarantor or Grantor with respect to its obligations hereunder, and each Guarantor and Grantor shall remain liable for the full amount of the obligations of such Guarantor or Grantor hereunder.

Each Guarantor and Grantor hereby agrees that all Indebtedness and other monetary obligations owed by it to any other Subsidiary that is not a Grantor shall be subordinated to the payment in full of the Obligations (other than contingent obligations under general indemnification provisions as to which no claim is pending); provided, that any Guarantor or Grantor may repay such Indebtedness at any time so long as no Event of Default pursuant to Sections 8(a) or (f) of the Credit Agreement has occurred and is continuing.

SECTION 9. MISCELLANEOUS.

9.1. Amendments in Writing. None of the terms or provisions of this Agreement may be waived, amended, supplemented or otherwise modified except in accordance with Section 10.1 of the Credit Agreement.

9.2. Notices. All notices, requests and demands to or upon the Administrative Agent or any Grantor hereunder shall be effected in the manner provided for in Section 10.2 of the Credit Agreement and shall be addressed to such Grantor, c/o the Borrower’s address set forth in the Credit Agreement.

9.3. No Waiver by Course of Conduct; Cumulative Remedies. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any other Secured Party shall by any act (except by a written instrument pursuant to Section 9.1), delay, indulgence, omission or otherwise be deemed to have waived any right or remedy hereunder or to have acquiesced in any Default or Event of Default. No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party, any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof. No single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. A waiver by the Administrative Agent or any Secured Party of any right or remedy hereunder on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar to any right or remedy which the Administrative Agent or such Secured Party would otherwise have on any future occasion. The rights and remedies herein provided are cumulative, may be exercised singly or concurrently and are not exclusive of any other rights or remedies provided by law.

9.4. Enforcement Expenses; Indemnification.

(a) Each Guarantor and Grantor agrees to pay or reimburse and indemnify each Lender, the Administrative Agent and the other Indemnitees to the extent the Borrower would be required to do so under Section 10.5 of the Credit Agreement.

(b) The agreements in this Section 9.4 shall survive repayment of each of the Borrower’s and the Guarantor’s Obligations and all other amounts payable under the Loan Documents.

 

-26-


9.5. Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon the permitted successors and assigns of each Grantor and shall inure to the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and their permitted successors and assigns; provided that no Grantor may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent.

9.6. Set-Off. Each Grantor hereby irrevocably authorizes the Administrative Agent and each Lender at any time and from time to time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to exercise its right of set-off in accordance with Section 10.7 of the Credit Agreement without prior notice to such Grantor, any such notice being expressly waived by such Grantor to the extent permitted by applicable law.

9.7. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Agreement on any number of separate counterparts (including by telecopy or .PDF), and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.

9.8. Severability. Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

9.9. Section Headings. The Section headings used in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and are not to affect the construction hereof or be taken into consideration in the interpretation hereof.

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

9.11. GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

9.12. Submission To Jurisdiction; Waivers. Each party hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally:

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

 

-27-


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

(c) agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be effected by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, at its address referred to in Section 9.2 or at such other address of which the Administrative Agent or the applicable Grantor (as the case may be) shall have been notified pursuant thereto;

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

(e) waives, to the maximum extent, not prohibited by law, any right it may have to claim or recover in any legal action or proceeding referred to in this Section any special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages.

9.13. Acknowledgments. Each Grantor hereby acknowledges that:

(a) it has been advised by counsel in the negotiation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which it is a party;

(b) neither the Administrative Agent nor any other Secured Party has any fiduciary relationship with or duty to any Grantor arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, and the relationship between the Grantors, on the one hand, and the Administrative Agent and other Secured Parties, on the other hand, in connection herewith or therewith is solely that of guarantor and lender; and

(c) no joint venture is created hereby or by the other Loan Documents or otherwise exists by virtue of the transactions contemplated hereby among the Secured Parties or among the Grantors and the Secured Parties.

9.14. Additional Grantors. Each Subsidiary of the Borrower that is required to become a party to this Agreement pursuant to Section 6.9(c) of the Credit Agreement shall become a Guarantor and Grantor for all purposes of this Agreement upon execution and delivery by such Subsidiary of an Assumption Agreement in the form of Annex 1 hereto.

9.15. Authorization to Release Guarantees and Liens. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Administrative Agent is hereby irrevocably authorized (without requirement of notice to or consent of any other Secured Party except as expressly required by Section 10.1 of the Credit Agreement) to take any action requested by the Grantors having the

 

-28-


effect of releasing any Guarantor, Collateral or Secured Obligations to the extent necessary to permit consummation of any transaction not prohibited by any Loan Document or that has been consented to in accordance with Section 10.1 of the Credit Agreement.

9.16. Termination or Release.

(a) At such time as the Loans and the other Obligations (other than obligations under or in respect of Specified Swap Agreements, Cash Management Obligations and contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim is pending), shall have been paid in full, the Commitments have been terminated and no Letters of Credit shall be outstanding (unless cash collateralized or subject to other arrangements reasonably acceptable to the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent), the Collateral shall be automatically released from the Liens created hereby, and this Agreement and all obligations (other than those expressly stated to survive such termination) of the Administrative Agent and each Grantor hereunder shall terminate, all without delivery of any instrument or performance of any act by any party, and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to the Grantors.

(b) A Subsidiary Guarantor shall automatically be released from its obligations hereunder and the security interest in the Collateral of such Subsidiary Guarantor shall be automatically released upon the consummation of any transaction permitted by the Credit Agreement as a result of which such Subsidiary Guarantor ceases to be a Subsidiary of the Borrower, ceases to be required to be a Loan Party pursuant to the terms of the Loan Documents or is designated as an Unrestricted Subsidiary or becomes an Excluded Subsidiary in accordance with the Credit Agreement. The security interest in the Pledged Stock of any Subsidiary Guarantor shall be automatically released if such Subsidiary Guarantor is designated an Unrestricted Subsidiary or becomes an Excluded Subsidiary in accordance with the Credit Agreement.

(c) Holdings shall automatically be released from its obligations hereunder subject to and pursuant to the terms of Section 10.18 of the Credit Agreement.

(d) Upon any sale or other transfer or disposal (including wind-up or dissolution) by any Grantor of any Collateral that is permitted under the Credit Agreement (including, without limitation, any fundamental change permitted under Section 7.4 of the Credit Agreement or a Subsidiary becoming an Excluded Subsidiary), or upon the effectiveness of any written consent to the release of the security interest granted hereby in any Collateral pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Credit Agreement, the security interest in such Collateral shall be automatically released from the Liens created hereby, all without delivery of any instrument or performance of any act by any party.

(e) In connection with any termination or release pursuant to paragraph (a), (b) or (c), the Administrative Agent shall execute and deliver to any Grantor, at such Grantor’s expense, all releases or other documents that such Grantor shall reasonably request to evidence such termination or release and assign, transfer and deliver to such Grantor such of the Collateral as is then being (or has been) so sold or otherwise disposed of, or released, and as may be in the possession of the Administrative Agent and has not theretofore been released pursuant to this Agreement. Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section 9.16 shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Administrative Agent.

 

-29-


9.17. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH GUARANTOR AND GRANTOR AND, BY THEIR ACCEPTANCE HEREOF, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND THE OTHER SECURED PARTIES, HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT AND FOR ANY COUNTERCLAIM THEREIN.

9.18. Subject to Intercreditor Agreement.
