The Borrowers have requested a revolving credit facility, which the Lenders have agreed to extend to the Borrowers on the terms and conditions of this Agreement for use by the Borrowers to refinance certain existing indebtedness of the Borrowers, to pay associated fees and expenses, and to finance ongoing working capital needs, capital expenditures, and other general corporate purposes of the Borrowers.

Changes in the rate of interest on that portion of any Loans maintained as Base Rate Loans will take effect simultaneously with each change in the Adjusted Base Rate.

Unless otherwise specified, references in a Credit Document to any Article or Section are references to such Article or Section of such Credit Document, and references in any Article, Section or definition to any clause are references to such clause of such Article, Section or definition.

Section 1.4 Accounting and Financial Determinations. Unless otherwise specified, all accounting terms used in each Credit Document shall be interpreted, and all accounting determinations and computations thereunder (including under Article IX and the definitions used in such calculations) shall be made, in accordance with GAAP applied in the preparation of the most recent financial statements referred to in Section 5.1(e). If any preparation in the financial statements referred to in Section 7.1 hereafter occasioned by the promulgation of rules, regulations, pronouncements and opinions by or required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (or successors thereto or agencies with similar functions) results in a change in any results, amounts, calculations, ratios, standards or terms found in this Agreement from those which would be derived or be applicable absent such changes, LEAF Financial may reflect such changes in the financial statements required to be delivered pursuant to Section 7.1, but calculations of the financial covenants set forth in Article IX shall be made without giving effect to any such changes. Upon the request of LEAF Financial or any Secured Party, the parties hereto agree to enter into negotiations in order to amend the financial covenants and other terms of this Agreement if there occur any changes in GAAP that have a material effect on the financial statements of LEAF Financial, so as to equitably reflect such changes with the desired result that the criteria for evaluating the financial condition of LEAF Financial and such other terms shall be the same in all material respects after such changes as if the changes had not been made. Unless otherwise expressly provided, all financial covenants and defined financial terms shall be computed on a consolidated basis for LEAF Financial, in each case without duplication.

ARTICLE II

REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY

Section 2.1 Revolving Loans. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, from time to time on any Business Day occurring from and after the Closing Date but prior to the Termination Date, each Lender agrees, severally but not jointly, that it will make Revolving Loans to the Borrowers, on a joint and several basis, equal to such Lender’s Percentage of the aggregate amount of each Borrowing of Revolving Loans requested by the Borrowers; provided, that (a) the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Loans (after giving effect to any amount requested) shall not exceed the lower of (i) the Borrowing Base and (ii) the Aggregate Commitment; and (b) the principal amount of outstanding Revolving Loans (after giving effect to any amount requested) from any Lender to the Borrowers plus (i) such Lender’s Percentage multiplied by (ii) the aggregate outstanding amount of Swingline Loans, shall not at any time exceed such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment as set forth on Schedule I hereto. Each Revolving Loan by a Lender shall be in a principal amount equal to such Lender’s Percentage of the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans requested on such occasion. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers may borrow, repay and reborrow Revolving Loans hereunder prior to the Termination Date.

Section 2.2 Reduction of Aggregate Commitment Amount. The Borrowers may (without premium or penalty), from time to time on any Business Day occurring after the Closing Date, voluntarily reduce the amount of the Aggregate Commitment on the Business Day so specified by the Borrowers; provided, however, that all such reductions shall require at least three (3) Business Days’ prior notice to the Agent and be permanent, and any partial reduction of the Aggregate Commitment shall be in a minimum amount of $5,000,000 and in any integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof. Any optional or mandatory reduction of the Aggregate Commitment pursuant to the terms of this Agreement which reduces the Aggregate Commitment below the Swingline Commitment shall result in an automatic and corresponding reduction of the Swingline Commitment to an amount equal to the Aggregate Commitment, as so reduced, without any further action on the part of the Swingline Lender. Each Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment shall be reduced by its Percentage of the reduction of the Aggregate Commitment.

Section 2.3 Borrowing Procedures. The Borrowers shall give the Agent irrevocable prior written notice in the form of a Borrowing Request (a) not later than 3:30 p.m. on the day a Borrowing of a Swingline Loan is to be made and not later than 1:00 p.m. on the day a Borrowing of a Base Rate Loan is to be made and (b) at least three (3) Business Days prior to the date that a LIBOR Loan is to be made. Each Borrowing Request shall be (i) in the case of Base Rate Loans, in a minimum amount of $100,000 and any integral multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof, and (ii) in the case of LIBOR Loans, in a minimum amount of $1,000,000 and any integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof, or, in either case, in the unused amount of the Revolving Loan Commitment. On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, each Borrowing shall be comprised of the Type of Loans, and shall be made on the Business Day, specified in such Borrowing Request. Promptly upon receipt, the Agent will notify all Lenders of the receipt of the Borrowing Request. By 4:00 p.m. on the date of such Borrowing, each Lender that has a Commitment to make the Loans being requested shall deposit with the Agent same day funds in an amount equal to such Lender’s Percentage of the requested Borrowing. Such deposit will be made to an account which the Agent shall specify from time to time by written notice to the Lenders. To the extent funds are received from the Lenders, the Agent shall make such funds available to the Borrowers by wire transfer to the accounts the Borrowers shall have specified in their Borrowing Request. No Lender’s obligation to make any Loan shall be affected by any other Lender’s failure to make any Loan.

-23-


Section 2.4 Continuation and Conversion Elections. By delivering a Continuation/Conversion Notice to the Agent on or before 12:00 noon on a Business Day, the Borrowers may from time to time irrevocably elect, on not less three (3) Business Days’ (but not more than five (5) Business Days) notice, that all, or any portion of any Borrowing of one Type of Revolving Loan may be converted into the other Type of Revolving Loan (or continued, as to any LIBOR Loan), in minimum amounts of $1,000,000 and any integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof; provided that, in the absence of delivery of a Continuation/Conversion Notice with respect to any LIBOR Loan at least three (3) Business Days before the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto, such LIBOR Loan shall, on such last day, automatically convert to a Base Rate Loan; provided further, that, that (x) each such conversion or continuation shall be pro rated among the applicable outstanding Loans of all Lenders that have made such Loans, and (y) no portion of the outstanding principal amount of any Loans may be continued as, or be converted into, LIBOR Loans when any Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.

Section 2.5 Funding. Each Lender may, if it so elects, fulfill its obligation to make, continue or convert LIBOR Loans hereunder by causing one of its foreign branches or Affiliates (or an international banking facility created by such Lender) to make or maintain such LIBOR Loan; provided, however, that such LIBOR Loan shall nonetheless be deemed to have been made and to be held by such Lender, and the obligation of the Borrowers to repay such LIBOR Loan shall nevertheless be to such Lender for the account of such foreign branch, Affiliate or international banking facility. In addition, the Borrowers hereby consent and agree that, for purposes of any determination to be made for purposes of Sections 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4, it shall be conclusively assumed that each Lender elected to fund all LIBOR Loans by purchasing Dollar deposits in the interbank eurodollar market.

Section 2.6 Swingline Loans.

(a) Availability. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Swingline Lender agrees to make Swingline Loans to the Borrowers from time to time from the Closing Date through, but not including, the Termination Date; provided, that the aggregate principal amount of all Swingline Loans (after giving effect to any amount requested), shall not exceed the lesser of (i) the Aggregate Commitment less the sum of all outstanding Loans, (ii) the Borrowing Base less the sum of all outstanding Loans, and (iii) the Swingline Commitment.

(b) Refunding.

(i) Swingline Loans shall be refunded by the Lenders on demand by the Swingline Lender. Such refundings shall be made by the Lenders in accordance with their respective Percentages and shall thereafter be reflected as Revolving Loans of the Lenders on the books and records of the Agent. Each Lender shall fund its respective Percentage of Revolving Loans as required to repay Swingline Loans outstanding to the Swingline Lender upon demand by the Swingline Lender but in no event later than 2:00 p.m. on the next succeeding Business Day after such demand is made. No Lender’s obligation to fund its respective Percentage of a Swingline Loan shall be affected by any other Lender’s failure to fund its Percentage of a Swingline Loan, nor shall any Lender’s Percentage be increased as a result of any such failure of any other Lender to fund its Percentage.

-24-


(ii) The Borrowers shall pay to the Swingline Lender within three (3) Business Days of demand the amount of such Swingline Loans to the extent amounts received from the Lenders are not sufficient to repay in full the outstanding Swingline Loans requested or required to be refunded pursuant to clause (i) above. In addition, the Borrowers hereby authorize the Agent to charge any account maintained with the Swingline Lender (up to the amount available therein) in order to immediately pay the Swingline Lender the amount of such Swingline Loans to the extent amounts received from the Lenders are not sufficient to repay in full the outstanding Swingline Loans requested or required to be refunded. If any portion of any such amount paid to the Swingline Lender shall be recovered by or on behalf of the Borrowers from the Swingline Lender in bankruptcy or otherwise, the loss to the Swingline Lender of the amount so recovered shall be ratably shared among all the Lenders that have not reimbursed the Swingline Lender pursuant to clause (i) above in accordance with their respective ratable share.

(iii) Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to refund Swingline Loans in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.6(b) is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including, without limitation, non-satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Article V hereof, except with respect to any Swingline Loan extended after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default of which the Agent has received actual written notice from the Borrowers or a Lender stating that it is a “Notice of Default” and with respect to which such Event of Default has not been waived by the Required Lenders or the Lenders, as applicable. Further, each Lender agrees and acknowledges that if prior to the refunding of any outstanding Swingline Loans pursuant to this Section 2.6(b), one of the events described in Section 11.1(j) or Section 11.1(k) hereof shall have occurred, each Lender will, on the date the applicable Revolving Loan would have been made pursuant to Section 2.6(b) hereof, purchase an undivided participating interest in the Swingline Loan to be refunded in an amount equal to its Percentage of the aggregate amount of such Swingline Loan. Each Lender will immediately transfer to the Swingline Lender, in immediately available funds, the amount of its participation of any Swingline Loan. Whenever, at any time after the Swingline Lender has received from any Lender such Lender’s participating interest in a Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender receives any payment on account thereof, the Swingline Lender will distribute to such Lender its participating interest in such amount (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Lender’s participating interest was outstanding and funded).

-25-


Section 2.7 Notes. The Borrowers agree that, upon the request to the Agent by any Lender, the Borrowers will execute and deliver to such Lender one or more Notes evidencing the Loans made by, and payable to the order of, such Lender in a maximum principal amount equal to such Lender’s Percentage of each original applicable Commitment. The Borrowers hereby irrevocably authorize each Lender to make (or cause to be made) appropriate notations on any grid attached to such Notes (or on any continuation of such grid), which notations, if made, shall evidence, inter alia, the date of, the outstanding principal of, and the interest rate and Interest Period applicable to the Loans evidenced thereby. Such notations shall, to the extent not inconsistent with notations made by the Agent in the Register, be conclusive and binding on each Borrower absent manifest error; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender to make any such notations or any error in any such notation shall not limit or otherwise affect any Obligations of any Borrower.

Section 2.8 Appointment of Agent for the Borrowers. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints LEAF Financial as its agent hereunder to make requests on such Borrower’s behalf under Article II hereof for Borrowings, to give and receive notices as contemplated by the Credit Documents and to take any other action contemplated by the Credit Documents with respect to the credit extended hereunder to such Borrower. The Agent and the Lenders shall be entitled to conclusively presume that any action by LEAF Financial under the Credit Documents is taken on behalf of the Borrowers whether or not LEAF Financial so indicates.

Section 2.9 Absolute Obligations. Each Borrower acknowledges and agrees that its joint and several liability under this Agreement and on all Obligations under the Credit Documents is absolute and unconditional and shall not in any manner be affected or impaired by any of acts or omissions whatsoever by any Secured Party, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Borrower’s joint and several liability under this Agreement and the Credit Documents shall not be impaired by any acceptance by any Secured Party of any other security for or guarantors upon this Agreement or any Obligations under the Credit Documents or by any failure, neglect or omission on any Secured Party’s part to resort to any one or all of the Borrowers for payment of the Notes or the Obligations under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents or to realize upon or protect any collateral security therefor. Each Borrower’s joint and several liability under this Agreement and the Credit Documents shall not in any manner be impaired or affected by who receives or uses the proceeds of the loans evidenced by the Notes and other Credit Documents or for what purposes such proceeds are used, and each Borrower waives notice of Borrowing requests issued by, and loans made to, other Borrowers. Such joint and several liability of each Borrower shall also not be impaired or affected by (and the Agent, without notice to anyone, is hereby authorized to make from time to time) any sale, pledge, surrender, compromise, settlement, release, renewal, extension, indulgence, alteration, substitution, exchange, change in, modification or disposition of any collateral security for this Agreement and all Obligations under the Credit Documents or of any guaranty thereof. In order to enforce payment of the Notes and the Borrowers’ obligations under this Agreement, foreclose or otherwise realize on any collateral security therefor, and to exercise the rights granted to the Agent hereunder and thereunder and under applicable law, the Agent shall be under no obligation at any time to first resort to any collateral security, property, liens or any other rights or remedies whatsoever, and the Lenders shall have the right to enforce this Agreement and all Obligations under the Credit Documents irrespective of whether or not other proceedings or steps are pending seeking resort to or realization upon or from any of the foregoing. Each Borrower hereby expressly waives and surrenders any defense to its joint and several liability on the Notes or under this Agreement based upon any of the foregoing. In furtherance thereof, each Borrower agrees that wherever in this Agreement it is provided that a Borrower is liable for a payment such obligation is the joint and several obligation of each Borrower.

-26-


Section 2.10 Partial Releases. The Security Agreement shall provide that the Agent’s lien and security interest in certain Contracts and related Equipment granted thereunder, shall be released automatically and with no further action by Agent upon a sale of such Contracts pursuant to a Purchase Agreement and receipt by the Borrower of the proceeds of such sale. The Agent from time to time shall confirm such release if requested by a Borrower, and shall promptly release such Contracts and related Equipment and other Collateral from the liens and security interests granted under the Credit Documents in connection with any other sale of such Collateral by a Borrower, and the Agent agrees, in either case, promptly to execute and deliver such documentation as is reasonably required to evidence each such release (in such form and substance as may be acceptable to the Agent), and shall promptly return the applicable instruments and other documents to the Borrowers or their designee, in each case subject to receipt of evidence and documentation in such form and substance as may be acceptable to the Agent that those terms and conditions have been satisfied; provided that no Event of Default or Default then exists or could result therefrom. Any and all actions under this Section shall be without any recourse to or representation or warranty by the Agent and shall be at the sole cost and expense of the Borrowers.

ARTICLE III

Section 3.1 Repayments and Prepayments; Application. The Borrowers shall repay in full the unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan on the Termination Date. Prior thereto, payments and prepayments of Loans shall or may be made as set forth below.

(a) Principal Repayments. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Borrowers shall repay the outstanding principal amount of each Swingline Loan on the earlier to occur of (i) the Termination Date or (ii) within three (3) Business Days of demand.

(b) Voluntary Prepayments. From time to time on any Business Day, the Borrowers may make a voluntary prepayment, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, of the outstanding principal amount of any Loan; provided, however, that: (i) any such prepayment shall be applied, first, to any outstanding Swingline Loans, second, to any other Base Rate Loans, and, third, pro rata among LIBOR Loans having the same Interest Period, in the direct order of maturity of such Interest Periods; (ii) any such voluntary prepayment of any Loan made in part, and not in whole, shall be in a minimum amount of $500,000 and any integral multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof; and (iii) the Borrowers shall comply with Section 4.4 in the event any LIBOR Loan is prepaid on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period for such LIBOR Loan.

(c) Mandatory Prepayments.

(i) Revolving Loan Prepayments. On any date when the sum of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of (A) all Revolving Loans and (B) all Swingline Loans, exceeds the lesser of (A) the Aggregate Commitment (as it may be reduced from time to time pursuant to this Agreement), and (B) the Borrowing Base, the Borrowers shall make a mandatory prepayment of Revolving Loans in an aggregate amount equal to such excess.

-27-


(ii)     Prepayments of Net Disposition Proceeds. Immediately upon the receipt by any Borrower of any Net Disposition Proceeds, the Borrowers shall make a mandatory prepayment of the Loans in an amount equal to 100% of such Net Disposition Proceeds, to the extent necessary to comply with paragraph (i) above.

(iii)    Prepayments upon Acceleration. Immediately upon any acceleration of any Loans pursuant to Section 11.2 or Section 11.3, the Borrowers shall repay all the Loans, unless, pursuant to Section 11.3, only a portion of all the Loans is so accelerated (in which case the portion so accelerated shall be so repaid). Such amounts shall be applied in accordance with Section 11.4.

Section 3.2 Interest Provisions. Interest on the outstanding principal amount of Loans shall accrue and be payable in accordance with the terms set forth below.

(a) Rates. Subject to Sections 2.3 and 2.4, pursuant to an appropriately delivered Borrowing Request or Continuation/Conversion Notice, the Borrowers may elect that Loans comprising a Borrowing accrue interest at a rate per annum:

(i) on that portion maintained from time to time as a Base Rate Loan, equal to the sum of the Adjusted Base Rate from time to time in effect plus the Applicable Margin; and

(ii) on that portion maintained as a LIBOR Loan, during each Interest Period applicable thereto, equal to the sum of LIBOR (Reserve Adjusted) for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin,

All LIBOR Loans shall bear interest from and including the first day of the applicable Interest Period to (but not including) the last day of such Interest Period at the interest rate determined as applicable to such LIBOR Loan. Notwithstanding anything set forth above, all Swingline Loans shall be issued and maintained solely as Base Rate Loans.

(b) Default Rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower will pay to the Agent, for the account of the party entitled thereto, interest, at a rate per annum (the “Default Rate”) equal to the Adjusted Base Rate from time to time in effect (or, as to any LIBOR Loan then outstanding, the LIBOR (Reserve Adjusted) rate applicable to such LIBOR Loan during the remainder of the related Interest Period prior to conversion thereof pursuant to Section 2.4), plus the sum of (i) the Applicable Margin applicable thereto and (ii) an additional margin of 3% per annum, to the fullest extent permitted by law, on any amount payable by the Borrowers under any Credit Document to or for the account of the Agent or any Lender that is not paid in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration, or otherwise) or that is outstanding after the Agent has notified the Borrowers that any other Event of Default exists and that the Default Rate will apply, for the period from and including the due date thereof, or in the case of other Events of Default, the date the Agent has notified the Borrower that the Default Rate will begin to accrue, to but excluding the date the same is paid in full (or in the case of any other Event of Default, until the Event of Default no longer exists). Interest payable at the Default Rate shall be payable from time to time on demand or, if not earlier demanded, on each Quarterly Payment Date.

-28-


(c) Payment Dates. Interest accrued on each Loan shall be payable, without duplication:

(i) on the date of any payment or prepayment, in whole or in part, of principal outstanding on such Loan on the principal amount so paid or prepaid;

(ii) with respect to Base Rate Loans, on each Quarterly Payment Date;

(iii) with respect to LIBOR Loans, on the last Business Day of each applicable Interest Period (and, if such Interest Period shall exceed three months, on the date occurring on each three-month interval occurring after the first day of such Interest Period);

(iv) with respect to any Base Rate Loans converted into LIBOR Loans on a day when interest would not otherwise have been payable pursuant to clause (iii) above, on the date of such conversion; and

(v) on that portion of any Loan which is accelerated pursuant to Section 11.2 or Section 11.3, immediately upon such acceleration.

Interest accrued on Loans or other monetary Obligations after the date such amount is due and payable (whether upon maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise) shall be payable upon demand.

(d) Maximum Rate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any Credit Document, the interest paid or agreed to be paid under the Credit Documents shall not exceed the maximum rate of non-usurious interest permitted by applicable law (the “Maximum Rate”). If the Agent or any Lender shall receive interest in an amount that exceeds the Maximum Rate, the excess interest shall be applied to the principal of the Loans or, if it exceeds such unpaid principal, refunded to the Borrowers. In determining whether the interest contracted for, charged, or received by the Agent or a Lender exceeds the Maximum Rate, such Person may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, (a) characterize any payment that is not principal as an expense, fee, or premium rather than interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (c) amortize, prorate, allocate, and spread in equal or unequal parts the total amount of interest throughout the contemplated term of the Obligations hereunder.

Section 3.3 Fees. The Borrowers agree to pay the fees set forth below. All such fees shall be non-refundable.

(a) Commitment Fee. The Borrowers agree to pay to the Agent for the account of each Lender, for the period commencing on the Closing Date and continuing through the Termination Date, a commitment fee in an amount equal to 3/8 of 1% per annum, in each case on such Lender’s Percentage of the Average Availability. All such commitment fees shall be payable by the Borrowers in arrears on each Quarterly Payment Date, commencing with the first Quarterly Payment Date following the Closing Date, and on the Termination Date.

-29-


(b) Agent’s Fee. The Borrowers agree to pay to the Agent, for its own account, the fees in the amounts and on the dates set forth in the Fee Letter.

ARTICLE IV

CERTAIN LIBOR AND OTHER PROVISIONS

Section 4.1 LIBOR Lending Unlawful. If any Lender shall determine (which determination shall, upon notice thereof to the Borrowers and the Agent, be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers) that the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law makes it unlawful, or any Governmental Authority asserts that it is unlawful, for such Lender to make or continue any Loan as, or to convert any Loan into, a LIBOR Loan, the obligations of such Lender to make, continue or convert any such LIBOR Loan shall, upon such determination, forthwith be suspended until such Lender shall notify the Agent that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, and all outstanding LIBOR Loans payable to such Lender shall automatically convert into Base Rate Loans at the end of the then current Interest Periods with respect thereto or sooner, if required by such law or assertion.

Section 4.2 Deposits Unavailable. If the Agent shall have determined that:

(a) Dollar deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant Interest Period are not available to it in the relevant market; or

(b) by reason of circumstances affecting its relevant market, adequate means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable hereunder to LIBOR Loans;

then, upon notice from the Agent to the Borrowers and the Lenders, the obligations of all Lenders under Section 2.1 to make or continue any Loans as, or to convert any Loans into, LIBOR Loans shall forthwith be suspended until the Agent shall notify the Borrowers and the Lenders that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist.

Section 4.3 Increased LIBOR Loan Costs, etc. The Borrowers agree to reimburse each Lender for any increase in the cost to such Lender of, or any reduction in the amount of any sum receivable by such Secured Party in respect of, such Secured Party’s Commitments and the making of Loans hereunder (including the making, continuing or maintaining (or of its obligation to make or continue) any Loans as, or of converting (or of its obligation to convert) any Loans into, LIBOR Loans) that arise in connection with any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase-in after the date hereof of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority, except for such changes with respect to increased capital costs and Taxes which are governed by Sections 4.5 and 4.6, respectively. Each affected Secured Party shall promptly notify the Agent and the Borrowers in writing of the occurrence of any such event, such notice stating in reasonable detail the reasons therefor and the additional amount required fully to compensate such Secured Party for such increased cost or reduced amount. Such additional amounts shall be payable by the Borrowers directly to such Secured Party within five days of its receipt of such notice, and such notice shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on the Borrower.

-30-


Section 4.4 Funding Losses. In the event any Lender shall incur any loss or expense (including any loss or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to make or continue any portion of the principal amount of any Loan as, or to convert any portion of the principal amount of any Loan into, a LIBOR Loan) as a result of:

(a) any conversion or repayment or prepayment of the principal amount of any LIBOR Loan on a date other than the scheduled last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, whether pursuant to Article III or otherwise;

(b) any Loans not being made as LIBOR Loans in accordance with the Borrowing Request therefor; or

(c) any Loans not being continued as, or converted into, LIBOR Loans in accordance with the Continuation/Conversion Notice therefor;

then, upon the written notice of such Lender to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Agent), the Borrowers shall, within five days of its receipt thereof, pay directly to such Lender such amount as will (in the reasonable determination of such Lender) reimburse such Lender for such loss or expense. Such written notice shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers.

Section 4.5 Increased Capital Costs. If any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase-in of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority (other than any law, regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request relating to Taxes which are governed by Section 4.6) affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by any Secured Party or any Person controlling such Secured Party, as a consequence of this Agreement, and such Secured Party determines (in good faith but in its sole and absolute discretion) that the rate of return on its or such controlling Person’s capital as a consequence of the Commitments or the Loans made by such Secured Party is reduced to a level below that which such Secured Party or such controlling Person could have achieved but for the occurrence of any such circumstance, then upon notice from time to time by such Secured Party to the Borrowers, the Borrowers shall within five (5) days following receipt of such notice pay directly to such Secured Party additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Secured Party or such controlling Person for such reduction in rate of return. A statement of such Secured Party as to any such additional amount or amounts (including calculations thereof in reasonable detail) shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers. In determining such amount, such Secured Party may use any method of averaging and attribution that it (reasonably determined in good faith in its sole and absolute discretion) shall deem applicable.

-31-


Section 4.6 Taxes The Borrowers covenant and agree as follows with respect to Taxes:

(a) Except as otherwise provided herein, any and all payments by the Borrowers under any Credit Document shall be made without setoff, counterclaim or other defense, and free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any Taxes. In the event that any Taxes are required by law to be deducted or withheld from any payment required to be made by the Borrowers to or on behalf of the Agent or any Lender under any Credit Document, then:

(i) subject to clause (f), only if such Taxes are Non-Excluded Taxes, the amount of such payment shall be increased as may be necessary such that such payment is made, after withholding or deduction for or on account of such Taxes, in an amount that is not less than the amount provided for in this Agreement or such Credit Document; and

(ii) the Borrowers shall withhold the full amount of such Taxes from such payment (as increased pursuant to clause (a)(i)) and shall pay such amount to the Governmental Authority imposing such Taxes in accordance with applicable law.

(b) In addition, the Borrowers shall pay any and all Other Taxes imposed to the relevant Governmental Authority imposing such Other Taxes in accordance with applicable law.

(c) As promptly as practicable after the payment of any Taxes or Other Taxes, and in any event within 30 days of any such payment being due, the Borrowers shall furnish to the Agent a copy of an official receipt (or a certified copy thereof) or other applicable documentation evidencing the payment of such Taxes or Other Taxes. The Agent shall make copies thereof available to any Lender upon request therefor.

(d) Subject to clause (f), the Borrowers shall indemnify the Agent and each Lender for any Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes levied, imposed or assessed on (and whether or not paid directly by) the Agent or such Lender (whether or not such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes are correctly or legally asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority). Promptly upon receiving written notice from the Agent or any Lender or otherwise upon having knowledge that any such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes have been levied, imposed or assessed, the Borrowers shall pay such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes directly to the relevant Governmental Authority. In addition, the Borrowers shall indemnify the Agent and each Lender for any incremental Taxes that may become payable by the Agent or such Lender as a result of any failure of the Borrowers to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate Governmental Authority or to deliver to the Agent, pursuant to clause (c), documentation evidencing the payment of Taxes or Other Taxes. With respect to indemnification for Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes actually paid by the Agent or any Lender or the indemnification provided in the immediately preceding sentence, such indemnification shall be made within 30 days after the date the Agent or such Lender makes written demand therefor, which demand shall include a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the amount of such indemnification and the determination thereof. Such a certificate shall be presumed to be correct in the absence of demonstrable error. The Borrowers acknowledge that any payment made to the Agent or any Lender or to any Governmental Authority in respect of the indemnification obligations of the Borrowers provided in this clause shall constitute a payment in respect of which the provisions of clause (a) above and this clause shall apply.

-32-


(e) Each Non-U.S. Lender, on or prior to the date on which such non-U.S. Lender becomes a Lender hereunder (and from time to time thereafter upon the request of the Borrowers or the Agent or as otherwise required by law, but only for so long thereafter as such non-U.S. Lender is legally entitled to do so), shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Agent, but only to the extent that it is permitted to do so under applicable tax law, either:

(i) two duly completed copies of either (x) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or (y) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 ECI, or in either case an applicable successor form; or

(ii) in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender that is not legally entitled to deliver either form listed in clause (e)(i) above, (x) a certificate of a duly authorized officer of such Non-U.S. Lender to the effect that such Non-U.S. Lender is not (A) a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a “10 percent shareholder” of any Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or (C) a controlled foreign corporation receiving interest from a related person within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (such certificate, an “Exemption Certificate”) and (y) two duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or applicable successor form to establish an exemption from United States backup withholding tax.

(f) In addition, each Non-U.S. Lender agrees that from time to time after the Closing Date, when a lapse in time or change in circumstances unique to the situation of such Lender renders the form or forms and/or Exemption Certificate provided under clause (e) above obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect, it will deliver to the Borrowers a new, accurate form or forms and/or Exemption Certificate, as applicable to such Non-U.S. Lender, and such other forms as may be prescribed by law in order to confirm or establish the entitlement of such Non-U.S. Lender to an exemption from or reduction in United States federal withholding tax with respect to payments by the Borrowers under the applicable Credit Document, but only to the extent that it is permitted to do so under applicable tax law.

(g) The Borrowers shall not be obligated to gross up any payments to any Lender pursuant to clause (a)(i) above, or to indemnify any Lender pursuant to clause (d) above, in respect of United States federal withholding taxes to the extent that such taxes are imposed as a result of (x) the failure of such Lender to deliver to the Borrowers the form or forms and/or an Exemption Certificate, as applicable to such Lender, pursuant to clause (e) above, or, (y) such form or forms and/or Exemption Certificate not establishing a complete exemption from United States federal withholding tax or the information or certifications made therein by the Lender being untrue or inaccurate on the date delivered in any material respect; provided, however, that the Borrowers shall be obligated to gross up any payments to any such Lender pursuant to clause (a)(i) above, and to indemnify any such Lender pursuant to clause (d), in respect of United States federal withholding taxes if any such failure to deliver a form or forms or an Exemption Certificate or the failure of such form or forms or Exemption Certificate to establish a complete exemption from United States federal withholding tax or inaccuracy or untruth contained therein resulted from a change in any applicable statute, treaty, regulation or other applicable law or any interpretation of any of the foregoing occurring after the date hereof, which change rendered such Lender no longer legally entitled to deliver such form or forms or Exemption Certificate or otherwise ineligible for a complete exemption from United States federal withholding tax, or rendered the information or certifications made in such form or forms or Exemption Certificate untrue or inaccurate in any material respect.

-33-


(h) If the Agent or any Lender receives a refund in respect of Taxes as to which it has been grossed up by the Borrowers pursuant to clause (a)(i) above or indemnified by the Borrowers pursuant to clause (d) above and the Agent or Lender, as applicable determines in its sole, good faith judgment that such refund is attributable to such gross up or indemnification, then the Lender or the Agent, as the case may be, shall pay such amount to the Borrowers as the Lender or Agent determines to be the proportion of the refund as will leave it, after such payment, in no better or worse financial position with respect to Tax liabilities and related expenses than it would have been in absent such payment. Neither the Lenders nor the Agent shall be obligated to disclose information regarding its tax affairs or computations to the Borrowers in connection with this clause (g) or any other provision of this Section 4.6.

Section 4.7 Payments, Computations, etc Unless otherwise expressly provided in a Credit Document, all payments by the Borrowers pursuant to each Credit Document shall be made by the Borrowers to the Agent for the pro rata account of the Secured Parties entitled to receive such payment. All payments shall be made without setoff, deduction or counterclaim not later than 12:00 noon on the date due in same day or immediately available funds to such account as the Agent shall specify from time to time by notice to the Borrowers. Funds received after that time but before 5:00 p.m. on such date shall be deemed to have been received by the Agent on such date for purposes of Section 11.1(a), but for all other purposes shall be deemed to have been received by the Agent on the next succeeding Business Day. The Agent shall promptly remit in same day funds to each Secured Party its share, if any, of such payments received by the Agent for the account of such Secured Party. Interest payable hereunder with respect to Base Rate Loans shall be calculated on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days, as applicable) for the actual days elapsed. All other fees, interest and all other amounts payable hereunder shall be calculated on the basis of a 360 day year for the actual days elapsed. Payments due on a day other than a Business Day shall (except as otherwise required by the definition of the term “Interest Period”) be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest and fees in connection with that payment.

Section 4.8 Sharing of Payments. If any Secured Party shall obtain any payment or other recovery (whether voluntary, involuntary, by application of setoff or otherwise) on account of any Loan (other than pursuant to the terms of Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 or 4.6) in excess of its pro rata share of payments obtained by all Secured Parties, such Secured Party shall purchase from the other Secured Parties such participations in Loans made by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Secured Party to share the excess payment or other recovery ratably (to the extent such other Secured Parties were entitled to receive a portion of such payment or recovery) with each of them; provided, however, that if all or any portion of the excess payment or other recovery is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Secured Party, the purchase shall be rescinded and each Secured Party which has sold a participation to the purchasing Secured Party shall repay to the purchasing Secured Party the purchase price to the ratable extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such selling Secured Party’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (a) the amount of such selling Secured Party’s required repayment to the purchasing Secured Party to (b) total amount so recovered from the purchasing Secured Party) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Secured Party in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Borrowers agree that any Secured Party purchasing a participation from another Secured Party pursuant to this Section may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including pursuant to Section 4.9) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Secured Party were the direct creditor of the Borrowers in the amount of such participation. If under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law any Secured Party receives a secured claim in lieu of a setoff to which this Section applies, such Secured Party shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a manner consistent with the rights of the Secured Parties entitled under this Section to share in the benefits of any recovery on such secured claim.

-34-


Section 4.9 Setoff. Each Secured Party shall, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default described in Section 11.1(i) or, with the consent of the Required Lenders, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any other Event of Default, have the right to appropriate and apply to the payment of the Obligations owing to it (whether or not then due), and (as security for such Obligations) the Borrowers hereby grant to each Secured Party a continuing security interest in, any and all balances, credits, deposits, accounts or moneys of the Borrowers then or thereafter maintained with such Secured Party; provided, however, that any such appropriation and application shall be subject to the provisions of Section 4.8. Each Secured Party agrees promptly to notify the Borrowers and the Agent after any such setoff and application made by such Secured Party; provided, however, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application. The rights of each Secured Party under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff under applicable law or otherwise) which such Secured Party may have.

Section 4.10 Mitigation; Time Limitation.

(a) Each Lender agrees that if any demand for payment under Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, or 4.6, or if any adoption or change of the type described in Section 4.1 shall occur with respect to it, it will use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions and so long as such efforts would not be disadvantageous to it, as determined in its reasonable discretion) to designate a different lending office if the making of such a designation would reduce or obviate the need for the Borrowers to make payments under Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 or 4.6, or would eliminate or reduce the effect of any adoption or change described in Section 4.1.

(b) Failure or delay on the part of any Secured Party to demand compensation pursuant to Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 or 4.6 shall not constitute a waiver of such Secured Party’s right to demand such compensation, provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Secured Party pursuant to the Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 or 4.6 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than six months prior to the date that such Secured Party notifies the Borrowers of the change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Secured Party’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the six month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).

-35-


Section 4.11 Replacement of Lenders. Each Lender hereby severally agrees as set forth in this Section.

(a) If any Lender (an “Affected Lender”) makes demand upon any Borrower for (or if any Borrower is otherwise required to pay to such Lender) amounts pursuant to Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 or 4.6 and the payment of such additional amounts are, and are likely to continue to be, materially more onerous in the reasonable judgment of the Borrowers with respect to the other Lenders or any Lender defaults under the terms hereunder (a “Defaulting Lender”), the Borrowers may, within 30 days of receipt by the Borrowers of such demand or notice (or the occurrence of such other event causing the Borrowers to be required to pay such compensation) or from the date that such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, give notice in writing to the Agent and such Affected Lender or such Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, of its intention to replace such Affected Lender or Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, with a financial institution designated in such notice, subject to the other terms of this Agreement. If the Agent shall, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion and within 30 days of its receipt of such notice, notify the Borrowers and such Affected Lender or such Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, in writing that the designated financial institution is satisfactory to the Agent (such consent not being required where such financial institution is already a Lender), then such Affected Lender or such Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, shall, subject to the payment of any amounts due pursuant to Section 4.4 by the Borrowers, assign, in accordance with Section 13.11(a), all of its Commitments, Loans, Notes, and other rights and obligations under this Agreement and all other Credit Documents to such designated financial institution; provided, however, that (i) such assignment shall be without recourse, representation or warranty (except, with respect to representations and warranties, as to (A) such Affected Lender’s or such Defaulting Lender’s, as the case may be, then existing Commitment Amount(s) and the outstanding principal amount of Loans held by such Affected Lender or such Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, and (B) the absence of Liens arising by, through and under the Affected Lender or Defaulting Lender, as the case may be) and shall be on terms and conditions reasonably satisfactory to such Affected Lender and such designated financial institution, (ii) the purchase price paid by such designated financial institution shall be in the amount of such Affected Lender’s or such Defaulting Lender’s Loans, together with all accrued and unpaid interest and fees in respect thereof, plus all other amounts (including the amounts demanded and unreimbursed under Section 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 13.3, and 13.4), owing to such Affected Lender or such Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, hereunder and (iii) the Borrowers shall pay to such Affected Lender or Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, and the Agent all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such Affected Lender or such Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, and the Agent in connection with such assignment and assumption (including the processing fees described in Section 13.11(a)).

(b) Upon the effective date of an assignment described in clause (a) above, the Borrowers shall issue a replacement Note or Notes, as the case may be, to such replacement Lender (but only if such replacement Lender requests such Note or Notes) and such institution shall become a “Lender” for all purposes under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents. Upon any such termination or assignment, such replaced Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of any provisions of this Agreement which by their terms survive the termination of this Agreement.

ARTICLE XII

THE AGENT

Section 12.1 Actions. Each Lender hereby irrevocably appoints National City as its Agent. Each Lender authorizes the Agent to act on behalf of such Lender under each Credit Document and, in the absence of other written instructions from the Required Lenders received from time to time by the Agent (with respect to which the Agent agrees that it will comply, except as otherwise provided in this Section or as otherwise advised by counsel in order to avoid contravention of applicable law), to exercise such powers hereunder and thereunder as are specifically delegated to or required of the Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as may be reasonably incidental thereto. Each Lender hereby indemnifies (which indemnity shall survive any termination of this Agreement) the Agent, pro rata according to such Lender’s proportionate Total Exposure Amount, from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, claims, costs or expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever which may at any time be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against, the Agent in any way relating to or arising out of any Credit Document, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, and as to which the Agent is not reimbursed by the Borrowers; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, claims, costs or expenses which are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final proceeding to have resulted from the Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Agent shall not be required to take any action under any Credit Document, or to prosecute or defend any suit in respect of any Credit Document, unless it is indemnified hereunder to its satisfaction. If any indemnity in favor of the Agent shall be or become, in the Agent’s determination, inadequate, the Agent may call for additional indemnification from the Lenders and cease to do the acts indemnified against hereunder until such additional indemnity is given.

Section 12.2 Funding Reliance, etc. Unless the Agent shall have been notified in writing by any Lender by 5:00 p.m. on the Business Day prior to the date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available the amount which would constitute its Percentage of such Borrowing on the date specified therefor, the Agent may assume that such Lender has made such amount available to the Agent and, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrowers a corresponding amount. If and to the extent that such Lender shall not have made such amount available to the Agent, when all conditions to borrowing have been satisfied such Lender and the Borrowers severally agree to repay the Agent forthwith within three (3) Business Days of demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date the Agent made such amount available to the Borrowers to the date such amount is repaid to the Agent, at the interest rate applicable at the time to Loans comprising such Borrowing (in the case of the Borrowers) and (in the case of a Lender), at the Federal Funds Rate for the first two (2) Business Days after which such amount has not been repaid, and thereafter at the interest rate applicable to Loans comprising such Borrowing.

-63-


Section 12.3 Exculpation. Neither the Agent nor any of its respective directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable to any Lender for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it under any Credit Document, or in connection herewith or therewith, nor responsible for any recitals or warranties herein or therein, nor for the effectiveness, enforceability, validity or due execution of any Credit Document, nor for the creation, perfection or priority of any Liens purported to be created by any of the Credit Documents, or the validity, genuineness, enforceability, existence, value or sufficiency of any collateral security, nor to make any inquiry respecting the performance by any Obligor of its Obligations, except, in each case, to the extent determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final proceeding to have resulted from their own gross negligence or willful misconduct. Any such inquiry which may be made by the Agent shall not obligate it to make any further inquiry or to take any action. The Agent shall be entitled to rely upon advice of counsel concerning legal matters and upon any notice, consent, certificate, statement or writing which the Agent believes to be genuine and to have been presented by a proper Person.

Section 12.4 Successor. The Agent may resign as such at any time upon at least 10 days’ prior notice to the Borrowers and the Lenders. If the Agent at any time shall resign, the Required Lenders may appoint another Lender as a successor Agent (with, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the consent of the Borrowers, provided that the resignation of the Agent is not contingent upon such consent), which Lender, upon such appointment (and all applicable consents), thereupon shall become the Agent hereunder. If no successor Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the retiring Agent’s giving notice of resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent, which shall be one of the Lenders or a commercial banking institution organized under the laws of the United States (or any State thereof) or a United States branch or agency of a commercial banking institution, and having a combined capital and surplus of at least $250,000,000; provided, however, that if, such retiring Agent is unable to find a commercial banking institution which is willing to accept such appointment and which meets the qualifications set forth above, the retiring Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Lenders shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor as provided for above. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent hereunder by a successor Agent, such successor Agent shall be entitled to receive from the retiring Agent such documents of transfer and assignment as such successor Agent may reasonably request, and shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Credit Documents. After any retiring Agent’s resignation hereunder as the Agent, the provisions of this Article XII shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Agent under the Credit Documents, and Section 13.3 and Section 13.4 shall continue to inure to its benefit.

Section 12.5 Loans by Agent. Agent shall have the same rights and powers with respect to (x) the Loans made by it or any of its Affiliates, and (y) the Notes held by it or any of its Affiliates as any other Lender and may exercise the same as if it were not Agent. Agent and each of its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with any Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of any Borrower or Obligor as if Agent were not Agent hereunder.

-64-


Section 12.6 Credit Decisions. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently of the Agent and each other Lender, and based on such Lender’s review of the financial information of the Borrowers, the Credit Documents (the terms and provisions of which being satisfactory to such Lender) and such other documents, information and investigations as such Lender has deemed appropriate, made its own credit decision to extend its Commitments. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently of the Agent and each other Lender, and based on such other documents, information and investigations as it shall deem appropriate at any time, continue to make its own credit decisions as to exercising or not exercising from time to time any rights and privileges available to it under the Credit Documents.

Section 12.7 Reliance by Agent. The Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any certification, notice or other communication (including any thereof by telephone, telecopy, telegram or cable) believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by or on behalf of the proper Person, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants and other experts selected by the Agent. As to any matters not expressly provided for by the Credit Documents, the Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder or thereunder in accordance with instructions given by the Required Lenders or all of the Lenders as is required in such circumstance, and such instructions of such Lenders and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all Secured Parties. For purposes of applying amounts in accordance with this Section, the Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any Secured Party that has entered into a Secured Hedging Agreement for a determination (which such Secured Party agrees to provide or cause to be provided upon request of each Agent) of the outstanding Obligations owed to such Secured Party under any Secured Hedging Agreement. Unless it has actual knowledge evidenced by way of written notice from any such Secured Party and the Borrowers to the contrary, the Agent, in acting in such capacity under the Credit Documents, shall be entitled to assume that no Secured Hedging Agreements or Obligations in respect thereof are in existence or outstanding.

Section 12.8 Defaults. The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of a Default unless the Agent has received a written notice from a Lender or any Obligor specifying such Default and stating that such notice is a “Notice of Default”. In the event that the Agent receives such a notice of the occurrence of a Default, the Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders. The Agent shall (subject to Section 13.1) take such action with respect to such Default as shall be directed by the Required Lenders; provided, that unless and until the Agent shall have received such directions, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interest of the Lenders except to the extent that this Agreement expressly requires that such action be taken, or not be taken, only with the consent or upon the authorization of the Required Lenders or all Lenders.

MISCELLANEOUS

Section 13.1 Waivers, Amendments, etc.

(a) Waivers and Amendments.

(i) modify this Section without the consent of all Lenders;

(ii) increase the aggregate amount of any Loans required to be made by a Lender pursuant to its Commitments, extend the maturity date of any Loan made (or participated in) by any Lender or reduce any fees described in Article III payable to any Lender without the consent of such Lender or change the date or the amount of any principal repayment described in Section 3.1(a), without the consent of each Lender to be adversely affected by such amendment, modification or waiver;

(iii) forgive, or otherwise reduce, the principal amount of or reduce the rate of interest on any Lender’s Loan or extend the date on which interest or fees are payable in respect of any Lender’s Loans, in each case, without the consent of such Lender (it being understood and agreed, however, that any vote to rescind any acceleration made pursuant to Section 11.2 and Section 11.3 of amounts owing with respect to the Loans and other Obligations shall only require the vote of the Required Lenders);

(iv) reduce the percentage set forth in the definition of “Required Lenders” or modify any requirement hereunder that any particular action be taken by all Lenders without the consent of all Lenders;

-66-


(c) No Waiver. No failure or delay on the part of the Agent or any Lender in exercising any power or right under any Credit Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power or right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power or right. No notice to or demand on any Obligor in any case shall entitle it to any notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. No waiver or approval by the Agent or any Lender under any Credit Document shall, except as may be otherwise stated in such waiver or approval, be applicable to subsequent transactions. No waiver or approval hereunder shall require any similar or dissimilar waiver or approval thereafter to be granted hereunder.

(d) Replacement of Lender. In the event that any Lender or Lenders refuse to approve any waiver or amendment the Agent deems advisable, then the Agent may or, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrowers may (but neither shall be obligated to), upon notice to such Lender (and the Agent, if applicable), require such Lender to assign and delegate without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 13.11), all of its interests, rights, duties and obligations under this Agreement and the Credit Documents to an Assignee Lender that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be a Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) if it is an assignment at the request of the Borrowers, the Borrowers shall have received the prior written consent of the Agent, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, (ii) if it is an assignment at the request of the Agent and no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrowers shall have consented to such assignment which consents shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed and (iii) such assigning Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Credit Documents, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal, accrued interest and accrued fees) or Borrowers (in the case of all other amounts).

the presence on or under, or the escape, seepage, leakage, spillage, discharge, emission, discharging or releases from, any real property owned or operated by any Obligor or any Subsidiary thereof of any Hazardous Material (including any losses, liabilities, damages, injuries, costs, expenses or claims asserted or arising under any Environmental Law), regardless of whether caused by, or within the control of, such Obligor or Subsidiary;

except for Indemnified Liabilities arising for the account of a particular Indemnified Party which are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final proceeding to have resulted from the such Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, each Obligor and its successors and assigns hereby waive, release and agree not to make any claim or bring any cost recovery action against, any Indemnified Party under CERCLA or any state equivalent, or any similar law now existing or hereafter enacted. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, it is expressly understood and agreed that to the extent that any Indemnified Party is strictly liable under any Environmental Laws, each Obligor’s obligation to such Indemnified Party under this indemnity shall likewise be without regard to fault on the part of any Obligor with respect to the violation or condition which results in liability of an Indemnified Party. If and to the extent that the foregoing undertaking may be unenforceable for any reason, each Obligor agrees to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the Indemnified Liabilities which is permissible under applicable law.

-69-

The obligations of the Borrowers under Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 13.3 and 13.4, and the obligations of the Lenders under Section 13.1, shall in each case survive any assignment from one Lender to another (in the case of Sections 13.3 and 13.4) and the occurrence of the date on which all Obligations have been paid in full in cash, all Secured Hedging Agreements have been terminated and all Commitments shall have terminated. The representations and warranties made by the Borrowers in each Credit Document to which it is a party shall survive the execution and delivery of such Credit Document.

Section 13.6 Severability. Any provision of any Credit Document which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such provision and such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions of such Credit Document or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

Section 13.7 Headings. The various headings of each Credit Document are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of such Credit Document or any provisions thereof.

Section 13.10 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns; provided, however, that no Borrower nor any other Obligor may assign or transfer its rights or obligations hereunder without the consent of all Lenders (except as permitted by the Credit Documents).

Section 13.11 Assignments and Participations in Loans; Register. Each Lender may assign, or sell participations in, its Loans and Commitments to one or more other Persons in accordance with this the terms set forth below.

(a) Assignments. Any Lender, pursuant to a Lender Assignment Agreement, with the consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably delayed or withheld) of (i) the Borrowers, to the extent no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and (ii) the Agent, may at any time assign and delegate to any one or more commercial banks, funds or other financial institutions, and upon notice to the Borrowers and the Agent, upon the Agent’s acknowledgment on a Lender Assignment Agreement, may assign and delegate to any of its Affiliates or to any other Lender or to a Related Fund of any Lender (pursuant to applicable law) (each Person described in either of the foregoing clauses as being the Person to whom such assignment and delegation is to be made, being hereinafter referred to as an “Assignee Lender”), all or any fraction of such Lender’s Loans and Commitments in a minimum aggregate amount of $500,000 (or, if less, the entire remaining amount of such Lender’s Loans and Commitments). Each Obligor and the Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with a Lender in connection with the interests so assigned and delegated to an Assignee Lender until:

(i) notice of such assignment and delegation, together with (A) payment instructions, (B) the Internal Revenue Service forms or other statements contemplated or required to be delivered pursuant to Section 4.6, if applicable, and (C) addresses and related information with respect to such Assignee Lender, shall have been delivered to the Borrowers and the Agent by such assignor Lender and such Assignee Lender;

(ii) such Assignee Lender shall have executed and delivered to (A) the Borrowers and the Agent a Lender Assignment Agreement, accepted by the Agent, and (B), if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Agent an Administrative Questionnaire in which the assignee designates one or more credit contacts to whom all syndicate-level information (which may contain material non-public information about the Borrowers and their Subsidiaries and Affiliates or their respective securities) will be made available and who may receive such information in accordance with the such Assignee Lender’s compliance procedures and applicable laws, including Federal and state securities laws; and

(iii) the processing fees described below shall have been paid.

From and after the date that the Agent accepts such Lender Assignment Agreement, (x) the Assignee Lender thereunder shall be deemed automatically to have become a party hereto and to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned and delegated to such Assignee Lender in connection with such Lender Assignment Agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender under the Credit Documents, and (y) the assignor Lender, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned and delegated by it in connection with such Lender Assignment Agreement, shall be released from its obligations hereunder and under the other Credit Documents.

-71-


Within five (5) Business Days after its receipt of notice that the Agent has received and accepted an executed Lender Assignment Agreement, if requested by the Assignee Lender, the Borrowers shall execute and deliver to the Agent (for delivery to the relevant Assignee Lender) a new Note evidencing such Assignee Lender’s assigned Loans and Commitments and, if the assignor Lender has retained Loans and Commitments hereunder, if requested by such Lender, a replacement Note in the principal amount of the Loans and Commitments retained by the assignor Lender hereunder (such Note to be in exchange for, but not in payment of, the Note then held by such assignor Lender). Each such Note shall be dated the date of the predecessor Note. The assignor Lender shall mark each predecessor Note “exchanged” and deliver each of them to the Borrowers. Accrued interest on that part of each predecessor Note evidenced by a new Note, and accrued fees, shall be paid as provided in the Lender Assignment Agreement. Accrued interest on that part of each predecessor Note evidenced by a replacement Note shall be paid to the assignor Lender. Accrued interest and accrued fees shall be paid at the same time or times provided in the predecessor Note and in this Agreement.

Such assignor Lender or such Assignee Lender must also pay a processing fee in the amount of $3,500 to the Agent upon delivery of any Lender Assignment Agreement; provided, however, that no such fee shall be payable in the case of an assignment to an Affiliate of the assignor Lender or a Related Fund with respect to such assignor Lender; and provided, further that, in the case of contemporaneous assignments by a Lender to more than one fund managed by the same investment advisor (which funds are not then Lenders hereunder), only a single such processing fee shall be payable for all such contemporaneous assignments.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth above, (A) any Lender may (without requesting the consent of the Borrowers or the Agent) pledge its Loans and all or any portion of its rights in connection with this Agreement and the Credit Documents to a Federal Reserve Bank in support of borrowings made by such Lender from such Federal Reserve Bank and (B) any Lender that is a fund that invests in bank loans may (without the consent of the Borrowers or the Agent) pledge its Loans and all or any portion of its rights in connection with this Agreement and the Credit Documents to the holders (or to the trustees for such holders) of obligations owed, or securities issued, by such fund as security for such obligations or securities, provided, that any foreclosure or other exercise of remedies by such holder (or such trustee) shall be subject to the provisions of this Section regarding assignments in all respects. No pledge described in the immediately preceding clause (ii) shall release such Lender from its obligations hereunder.

(b) Participations. Any Lender may sell to one or more commercial banks or other Persons (each of such commercial banks and other Persons being herein called a “Participant”) participating interests in any of the Loans, Commitments, or other interests of such Lender hereunder; provided, however, that

-72-


(i) no participation contemplated in this Section shall relieve such Lender from its Commitments or its other obligations under any Credit Document;

(ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance of its Commitments and such other obligations;

(iii) each Obligor and the Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under each Credit Document;

(iv) no Participant, unless such Participant is an Affiliate of such Lender or is itself a Lender, shall be entitled to require such Lender to take or refrain from taking any action under any Credit Document, except that such Lender may agree with any Participant that such Lender will not, without such Participant’s consent, take any actions of the type described in clauses (a), (b), or (f) or, to the extent requiring the consent of such Lender, clause (c) of Section 13.1 with respect to Obligations participated in by such Participant; and

(v) the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any amount under this Agreement that is greater than the amount which it would have been required to pay had no participating interest been sold.

Subject to clause (v) of this Section 13.11(b), the Borrowers acknowledge and agree that each Participant, for purposes of Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.8, and 4.9, shall be considered a Lender. Each Participant shall be entitled to all information regarding the Borrowers that has been provided to the Lender selling the participation. Each Participant shall only be indemnified for increased costs pursuant to Section 4.3, 4.5 or 4.6 if and to the extent that the Lender which sold such participating interest to such Participant concurrently is entitled to make, and does make, a claim on the Borrowers for such increased costs. Any Lender that sells a participating interest in any Loan, Commitment or other interest to a Participant under this Section shall indemnify and hold harmless the Borrowers and the Agent from and against any taxes, penalties, additions, interest or other costs or losses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) incurred or payable by the Borrowers or the Agent as a result of the failure of the Borrowers or the Agent to comply with its obligations to deduct or withhold any Taxes from any payments made pursuant to this Agreement or the relevant Credit Documents to such Lender or the Agent, as the case may be, which Taxes would not have been incurred or payable if such Participant had been a Non-U.S. Lender that was entitled to deliver to the Borrowers, the Agent or such Lender, and did in fact so deliver, a duly completed and valid Form 1001 or 4224 (or applicable successor form) or Exemption Certificate entitling such Participant to receive payments under this Agreement or the relevant Credit Documents without deduction or withholding of any United States federal taxes.

(c) Register. The Borrowers hereby designates the Agent to serve as the Borrowers’ agent, solely for the purpose of this Section, to maintain a register (the “Register”) on which the Agent will record each Lender’s Commitment, the Loans made by each Lender and the Notes evidencing such Loans, and each repayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans of each Lender and annexed to which the Agent shall retain a copy of each Lender Assignment Agreement delivered to the Agent pursuant to this Section. Failure to make any recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Obligor’s Obligations in respect of such Loans or Notes. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person in whose name a Loan and related Note is registered as the owner thereof for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice or any provision herein to the contrary. A Lender’s Commitment and the Loans made pursuant thereto and the Notes evidencing such Loans may be assigned or otherwise transferred in whole or in part only by registration of such assignment or transfer in the Register. Any assignment or transfer of a Lender’s Commitment or the Loans or the Notes evidencing such Loans made pursuant thereto shall be registered in the Register only upon delivery to the Agent of a Lender Assignment Agreement duly executed by the assignor thereof. No assignment or transfer of a Lender’s Commitment or the Loans made pursuant thereto or the Notes evidencing such Loans shall be effective unless such assignment or transfer shall have been recorded in the Register by the Agent as provided in this Section.

-73-


Section 13.12 Other Transactions.

EACH BORROWER HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY OBJECTION WHICH IT MAY HAVE OR HEREAFTER MAY HAVE TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY SUCH LITIGATION BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT REFERRED TO ABOVE AND ANY CLAIM THAT ANY SUCH LITIGATION HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM. TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY BORROWER HAS OR HEREAFTER MAY ACQUIRE ANY IMMUNITY FROM JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT OR FROM ANY LEGAL PROCESS (WHETHER THROUGH SERVICE OR NOTICE, ATTACHMENT PRIOR TO JUDGMENT, ATTACHMENT IN AID OF EXECUTION OR OTHERWISE) WITH RESPECT TO ITSELF OR ITS PROPERTY, SUCH BORROWER HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW SUCH IMMUNITY IN RESPECT OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE CREDIT DOCUMENTS.

-74-


Section 13.14 Waiver of Jury Trial. THE AGENT, EACH LENDER AND EACH BORROWER HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ANY RIGHTS IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION BASED HEREON, OR ARISING OUT OF, UNDER, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, ANY CREDIT DOCUMENT, OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, COURSE OF DEALING, STATEMENTS (WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN) OR ACTIONS OF THE AGENT, ANY LENDER OR ANY BORROWER IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.
