ANNEX I
 
to Local Currency Addendum
 
ASSOCIATED COST RATE FORMULAE
 
1.
The Associated Cost Rate is an addition to the interest rate to compensate the Local Currency Banks for the cost of compliance with (a) the requirements of the Bank of England and/or the Financial Services Authority (or, in either case, any other authority which replaces all or any of its functions) or (b) the requirements of the European Central Bank.
 
2.
On the first day of each Interest Period (or as soon as possible thereafter) the Local Currency Agent shall calculate, as a percentage rate, a rate (the "Associated Cost Rate") for the Alternate Currency Banks, in accordance with the paragraphs set out below.  The Associated Cost Rate so determined by the Local Currency Agent shall be the weighted average of the Additional Cost Rates of each of the Local Currency Banks, weighted in proportion that the Local Currency Commitment of each such Local Currency Bank bears to the Total Local Currency Commitment.  The Associated Cost Rate will be expressed as a percentage rate per annum.
 
3.
The Associated Cost Rate for a Local Currency Bank lending from a lending installation in a member state of the European Communities that adopts or has adopted the Euro as its lawful currency in accordance with legislation of the European Union relating to European Monetary Union, will be the cost (stated as a percentage) of complying with the minimum reserve requirements of the European Central Bank.
 
4.
The Associated Cost Rate for a Local Currency Bank lending from a lending installation in the United Kingdom will be calculated by the Local Currency Agent as follows:
 
(a)           in relation to a Local Currency Advance in Pounds Sterling:
AB + C (B - D) + E x 0.01                     percent per annum
100 - (A + C)

(b)           in relation to a Local Currency Advance in any currency other than Pounds Sterling:

  E x 0.01                                percent per annum
   300
Where:

 
A
is the percentage of Eligible Liabilities (assuming these to be in excess of any stated minimum) which the Local Currency Bank is from time to time required to maintain as an interest free cash ratio deposit with the Bank of England to comply with cash ratio requirements.

 
B
is the percentage rate of interest (excluding the Applicable Margin and the Associated Cost Rate) payable for the relevant Interest Period on the Advance.

 
C
is the percentage (if any) of Eligible Liabilities which the Local Currency Bank is required from time to time to maintain as interest bearing Special Deposits with the Bank of England.

 
D
is the percentage rate per annum payable by the Bank of England to the Local Currency Bank on interest bearing Special Deposits.

 
E
is the rate of charge payable by the Local Currency Bank to the Financial Services Authority pursuant to the Fees Regulations (but, for this purpose, ignoring any minimum fee required pursuant to the Fees Regulations) and expressed in Pounds Sterling per £1,000,000 of the Fee Base of the Local Currency Bank.
 
5.
For the purposes of this Schedule:
 
(a)      “Eligible Liabilities” and “Special Deposits” have the meanings given to them from time to time under or pursuant to the Bank of England Act 1998 or (as may be appropriate) by the Bank of England;
 
(b)      “Fees Regulations” means the Banking Supervision (Fees) Regulations 1999 or such other law or regulation as may be in force from time to time in respect of the payment of fees for banking supervision; and
 
(c)      “Fee Base” has the meaning given to it, and will be calculated in accordance with, the Fees Regulations.
 
6.
In application of the above formulae, A, B, C and D will be included in the formulae as percentages (i.e., 5 percent will be included in the formula as 5 and not as 0.05).  A negative result obtained by subtracting D from B shall be taken as zero.  The resulting figures shall be rounded to four decimal places.
 
7.
In particular, but without limitation, each Local Currency Bank shall supply to the Agent and the Local Currency Agent the following information in writing on or prior to the date on which it becomes a Local Currency Bank:
 
(a)      its jurisdiction of incorporation and the jurisdiction of its lending installation; and
 
(b)      any other information that the Agent and the Local Currency Agent may reasonably require for such purpose.
 
8.
The percentages or rates of charge of a Local Currency Bank for the purpose of A, C and E above shall be determined by such Local Currency Bank based upon the information supplied by it pursuant to paragraph 7 above and on the assumption that, unless the Local Currency Bank notifies the Local Currency Agent to the contrary, the Local Currency Bank’s obligations in relation to cash ratio deposits, Special Deposits and the Fees Regulations are the same as those of a typical bank from its jurisdiction of incorporation with a lending installation in the same jurisdiction as its lending installation.
 
9.
The Local Currency Agent shall have no liability to any person if such determination results in an Associated Cost Rate which over or under compensates a Local Currency Bank and shall be entitled to assume that the information provided by a Local Currency Bank pursuant to paragraphs 3 and 7 above is true and correct in all respects.
 
10.
Any determination by the Local Currency Agent pursuant to this Schedule in relation to a formula, the Associated Cost Rate or any amount payable to the Local Currency Banks shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on all of the parties to this Addendum.
 
Any Local Currency Bank may from time to time, after consultation with CFSC, CIF, the Local Currency Agent and the Agent, determine and notify to all parties any amendments which are required to be made to this Annex in order to comply with any change in law, regulation or any requirements from time to time imposed by the Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority or the European Central Bank (or, in any case, any other authority which replaces all or any of its functions) and any such determination shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on all the parties to this Addendum.
