Terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Credit Agreement defined below.

RECITALS

A. The Lenders, Agent and Borrower have previously entered into that certain Credit Agreement dated as of October 4, 2005, as amended as of October 21, 2005, as of August 11, 2006 and as of November 13, 2006 (as so amended, and as further amended, modified and supplemented from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), pursuant to which the Lenders have made certain loans and financial accommodations available to Borrower.

B. The Borrower has requested that the Lenders and the Agent agree to certain additional amendments to the Credit Agreement and the Fee Letter referred to therein, and the Lenders and the Agent have agreed to such request, subject to the terms and conditions hereof.

AGREEMENT

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the mutual covenants herein contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:

1. Amendments to Credit Agreement. Subject to and upon the conditions hereof, the Credit Agreement and the Fee Letter are hereby amended, effective as of the date of satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3, as follows:

(a) The definition of “Base Rate Margin” in Schedule 1.1 to the Credit Agreement is hereby amended in its entirety to read as follows:

Base Rate Margin” means, as of any date of determination:

(i) For the period from and including the Fourth Amendment Effective Date to but excluding the effective date of any determination of the Base Rate Margin pursuant to clause (ii) below, 0.75 percentage points per annum.

(ii) Thereafter, the relevant Base Rate Margin set forth in the table below that corresponds to the TTM EBITDA set forth opposite thereto (as determined in accordance with clauses (iii) and (iv) below).

 

TTM EBITDA

  

Base Rate Margin:

Less than $7,000,000    1.00 percentage points
Greater than or equal to $7,000,000 but less than $11,000,000    0.75 percentage points
Greater than or equal to $11,000,000    0.50 percentage points


(iii) The Base Rate Margin shall be determined from time to time pursuant to clause (ii) above on the first day of the quarter following the date on which Borrower delivers to Agent a certificate of a Responsible Officer of Borrower, in form and substance satisfactory to Agent, evidencing its TTM EBITDA as of the end of the most recent quarter. Such certificate shall be provided by the Borrower as soon as available, but in any event within 45 days of the end of each of Borrower’s fiscal quarters during each of Borrower’s fiscal years. In the event that such certificate is not provided to the Agent in accordance with this clause (iii), the Base Rate Margin shall be set at 1.0 percentage points as of the first day of the quarter following the date on which such quarterly certificate was required to be delivered until the date on which such quarterly certificate is delivered (on which date (but not retroactively) the Base Rate Margin shall be set at the relevant Base Rate Margin set forth in the table above based upon the calculation of TTM EBITDA set forth in such quarterly certificate).

(iv) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Borrower at any time restates or otherwise revises its financial statements (including as a result of an audit), such that TTM EBITDA was lower than as previously certified by Borrower in the quarterly certificate with respect to such quarter, then the Base Rate Margin for such quarter shall be adjusted retroactively (to the effective date of the determination of the Base Rate Margin that was based upon the delivery of such quarterly certificate) to reflect the correct Base Rate Margin, and Borrower shall make payments to Agent to reflect such adjustment. Any interest that is so recalculated shall be due and payable on demand.

(b) The definition of “LIBOR Rate Margin” in Schedule 1.1 to the Credit Agreement is hereby amended in its entirety to read as follows:

LIBOR Rate Margin” means, as of any date of determination:

(i) For the period from and including the Fourth Amendment Effective Date to but excluding the effective date of any determination of the LIBOR Rate Margin pursuant to clause (ii) below, 2.25 percentage points per annum.

(ii) Thereafter, the relevant LIBOR Rate Margin set forth in the table below that corresponds to the TTM EBITDA set forth opposite thereto (as determined in accordance with clauses (iii) and (iv) below).

 

TTM EBITDA

  

LIBOR Rate Margin:

Less than $7,000,000    2.50 percentage points

Greater than or equal to $11,000,000    2.00 percentage points

(iii) The LIBOR Rate Margin shall be determined from time to time pursuant to clause (ii) above on the first day of the quarter following the date on which Borrower delivers to Agent a certificate of a Responsible Officer of Borrower, in form and substance satisfactory to Agent,

 

2.


evidencing its TTM EBITDA as of the end of the most recent quarter. Such certificate shall be provided by the Borrower as soon as available, but in any event within 45 days of the end of each of Borrower’s fiscal quarters during each of Borrower’s fiscal years. In the event that such certificate is not provided to the Agent in accordance with this clause (iii), the LIBOR Rate Margin shall be set at 2.50 percentage points as of the first day of the quarter following the date on which such quarterly certificate was required to be delivered until the date on which such quarterly certificate is delivered (on which date (but not retroactively) the LIBOR Rate Margin shall be set at the relevant LIBOR Rate Margin set forth in the table above based upon the calculation of TTM EBITDA set forth in such quarterly certificate).

(iv) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Borrower at any time restates or otherwise revises its financial statements (including as a result of an audit), such that TTM EBITDA was lower than as previously certified by Borrower in the quarterly certificate with respect to such quarter, then the LIBOR Rate Margin for such quarter shall be adjusted retroactively (to the effective date of the determination of the LIBOR Rate Margin that was based upon the delivery of such quarterly certificate) to reflect the correct LIBOR Rate Margin, and Borrower shall make payments to Agent to reflect such adjustment. Any interest that is so recalculated shall be due and payable on demand.

(c) Schedule 5.2 to the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to read in its entirety as set forth on Schedule 1 attached to this Amendment.

(d) The following definition is hereby added to Schedule 1.1 to the Credit Agreement in its appropriate alphabetical order:

Fourth Amendment Effective Date” means the date of satisfaction of all conditions precedent to effectiveness of that certain Fourth Amendment to Credit Agreement, dated as of June 19, 2007, among the Lenders parties thereto, Agent and the Borrower.

(f) The proviso in paragraph 3 of the Fee Letter is amended in its entirety to read as follows:

; provided, however, that (i) so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Borrower shall not be obligated to reimburse Agent for more than 4 audits during any calendar year, and (ii) so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, and Borrower’s Excess Availability plus Qualified Cash is equal to or greater than $15,000,000, Borrower shall not be obligated to reimburse Agent for any appraisal of the Collateral or business valuation; and provided further, however, that if any Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, or Borrower’s Excess Availability plus Qualified Cash is less than $15,000,000 (each an “Appraisal/Valuation Reimbursement Triggering Event”), Agent shall be entitled to reimbursement for 1 appraisal of the Collateral or business valuation per calendar year in respect of an appraisal or valuation which is contracted while the Appraisal/Valuation Reimbursement Triggering Event exists (it being understood and agreed, however, that notwithstanding clause (i) or clause (ii) above, Agent reserves the right to cause an appraisal of the Collateral or a business valuation to be done at any time at its own expense).
