     3. No Other Amendments. Except for the amendment set forth in Section 2 hereof, the text of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain unmodified and in full force and effect.
     4. Representations and Warranties. Borrower agrees, represents and warrants in favor of Lender as follows:
     (a) This Amendment has been executed and delivered by a duly authorized representative of Borrower, and the Credit Agreement, as modified and amended by this Amendment, constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of Borrower and is enforceable against Borrower in accordance with its terms, except as may be limited by (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws or (ii) general principles of equity;
     (b) Except as reflected on Exhibit 1, each representation or warranty of Borrower set forth in the Credit Agreement is hereby restated and reaffirmed as true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Effective Date, and after giving effect to this Amendment, as if such representation or warranty were made on and as of the Effective Date of, and after giving effect to, this Amendment;
     (c) No Event of Default (or other event which if not timely cured or corrected would with the passage of time become an Event of Default) with respect to Borrower has occurred and is continuing; and
     (d) As of the date hereof, Borrower is solvent after giving effect to the transactions contemplated herein.
     5. Conditions to Effectiveness. This Amendment will be effective as of the date first written above (the “Amendment Effective Date”), subject to the occurrence of each of the following on or before such date:
     (a) Lender shall have received counterparts hereof duly executed by Borrower; and

     7. Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of separate counterparts and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which, taken together, shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument. In proving this Amendment in any judicial proceedings, it shall not be necessary to produce or account for more than one such counterpart signed by the party against whom such enforcement is sought. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Amendment by telefacsimile or other electronic method of transmission shall be equally as effective as delivery or an original executed counterpart of this Amendment.
     8. Law of Contract. This Amendment shall be governed and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
