Except as provided in this Section and in Section 306 of the Original Indenture, (i) the aggregate principal amount of the Notes shall be limited to $250,000,000, and (ii) the Issuer shall not execute and the Trustee shall not authenticate or deliver Notes in excess of such aggregate principal amount.

 

Nothing contained in this Section 2.2 or elsewhere in this Supplemental Indenture, or in the Notes, is intended to or shall limit execution by the Issuer or authentication or delivery by the Trustee of Notes under the circumstances contemplated by Sections 303, 304, 305, 306, 906, 1107 and 1305 of the Original Indenture.  Furthermore, the Issuer may from time to time, without the consent of existing Holders, create and issue further Securities having the same terms and conditions in all respects as the Notes issued as of the date hereof pursuant to this Supplemental Indenture, except for issue date, issue price and the first payment of interest thereon.  Additional Securities issued in this manner will be consolidated with and will form a single series with the previously outstanding Notes.

 

Section 2.3  Interest and Interest Rates; Maturity Date of Notes.

(b)           In addition to the limitation set forth in subsection (a) of this Section 2.4, the Issuer will not, and will not permit any Subsidiary to, incur any Indebtedness if the ratio of Consolidated Income Available for Debt Service to the Annual Service Charge for the four consecutive fiscal quarters most recently ended prior to the date on which such additional Indebtedness is to be incurred shall have been less than 1.5:1, on a pro forma basis after giving effect thereto and to the application of the proceeds therefrom, and calculated on the assumption that (i) such Indebtedness and any other Indebtedness incurred by the Issuer and its Subsidiaries since the first day of such four-quarter period and the application of the proceeds therefrom, including to refinance other Indebtedness, had occurred at the beginning of such period; (ii) the repayment or retirement of any other Indebtedness by the Issuer and its Subsidiaries since the first day of such four-quarter period had been repaid or retired at the beginning of such period (except that, in making such computation, the amount of Indebtedness under any revolving credit facility shall be computed based upon the average daily balance of such Indebtedness during such period); (iii) in the case of Acquired Indebtedness or Indebtedness incurred in connection with any acquisition since the first day of such four-quarter period, the related acquisition had occurred as of the first day of such period with the appropriate adjustments with respect to such acquisition being included in such pro forma calculation; and (iv) in the case of any acquisition or disposition by the Issuer or its Subsidiaries of any asset or group of assets since the first day of such four-quarter period, whether by merger, stock purchase or sale, or asset purchase or sale, such acquisition or disposition or any related repayment of Indebtedness had occurred as of the first day of such period with the appropriate adjustments with respect to such acquisition or disposition being included in such pro forma calculation.

 

(c)           In addition to the limitations set forth in subsections (a) and (b) of this Section 2.4, the Issuer will not, and will not permit any Subsidiary to, incur any Indebtedness secured by any Encumbrance upon any of the property of the Issuer or any Subsidiary, whether owned at the date of the Indenture or thereafter acquired, if, immediately after giving effect to the incurrence of such additional

Indebtedness secured by an Encumbrance and the application of the proceeds thereof, the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Indebtedness of the Issuer and its Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis which is secured by any Encumbrance on property of the Issuer or any Subsidiary is greater than 40% of the sum of (without duplication) (i) the Total Assets of the Issuer and its Subsidiaries as of the end of the calendar quarter covered in the Issuer’s Annual Report on Form 10-K or Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, as the case may be, most recently filed with the Commission (or, if such filing is not permitted under the Exchange Act, with the Trustee) prior to the incurrence of such additional Indebtedness and (ii) the purchase price of any assets included in the definition of Total Assets acquired, and the amount of any securities offering proceeds received (to the extent such proceeds were not used to acquire items included in the definition of Total Assets or used to reduce Indebtedness), by the Issuer or any Subsidiary since the end of such calendar quarter, including those proceeds obtained in connection with the incurrence of such additional Indebtedness.

 

(d)           The Issuer and its Subsidiaries may not at any time own Total Unencumbered Assets equal to less than 150% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Unsecured Indebtedness of the Issuer and its Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.

Section 2.5  Redemption.

 

The Notes may be redeemed at any time and from time to time at the option of the Issuer, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to the sum of (i) the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon up to but not including the Redemption Date and (ii) the Make-Whole Premium, if any, with respect to such Notes (the “Redemption Price”).
