(iii)    the amount, Class and Type(s) of Advance(s) into which such Advance is to be converted or continued and, in the case of a conversion into or continuation of a LIBOR Advance, the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto.
2.12.    Changes in Interest Rate, Etc. Each ABR Advance shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day from and including the date such Advance is made or is converted from a LIBOR Advance into an ABR Advance pursuant to Section 2.11 to but excluding the date it becomes due or is converted into a LIBOR Advance pursuant to Section 2.11 hereof, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable ABR Rate for such day. Changes in the rate of interest on that portion of any Advance maintained as an ABR Advance will take effect simultaneously with each change in the Alternate Base Rate. Each LIBOR Advance shall bear interest from and including the first day of the Interest Period applicable thereto to (but not including) the last day of such Interest Period at the interest rate determined as applicable to such LIBOR Advance.
2.13.    Rates Applicable After Default. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 2.10, 2.11 or 2.12, during the continuance of a Default or Unmatured Default the Required Lenders may, at their option, by notice to the Borrower (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 9.2 requiring unanimous consent of the Lenders under a Facility to changes in interest rates with respect to such Facility), declare that no Advance may be made as, converted into or continued beyond its current term as a LIBOR Advance. During the continuance of a Default the Required Lenders may, at their option, by notice to the Borrower (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 9.2 requiring unanimous consent of the Lenders under a Facility to changes in interest rates with respect to such Facility), declare that (i) each LIBOR Advance shall bear interest for the remainder of the applicable Interest Period at the rate otherwise applicable to such Interest Period plus 2% per annum and (ii) each ABR Advance shall bear interest at a rate per annum

-31-




equal to the ABR Rate otherwise applicable to the ABR Advance plus 2% per annum and the Facility Letter of Credit Fee shall increase by 2% per annum; provided that such rates and increase in the Facility Letter of Credit Fee shall become applicable automatically without notice to the Borrower or an election or action by the Administrative Agent or any Lender if a Default occurs under Section 8.7 or Section 8.8, or a Default occurs relating to the payment of principal or interest, unless waived by the Required Lenders.
2.14.    Swing Line Loans. In addition to the other options available to the Borrower hereunder, up to $80,000,000 shall be available for Swing Line Loans subject to the following terms and conditions. Swing Line Loans shall be made available for same day borrowings provided that notice is given in accordance with Section 2.10 hereof. All Swing Line Loans shall bear interest at the ABR Rate applicable to the Revolving Credit Facility. In no event shall the Swing Line Lender be required to fund a Swing Line Loan if it would increase the sum of (i) the Swing Line Lender’s Revolving Credit Percentage of the total aggregate outstanding Swing Line Loans hereunder, plus (ii) its Revolving Credit Percentage of Facility Letter of Credit Obligations, plus (iii) its other outstanding Revolving Loans (other than Competitive Bid Loans) to an amount in excess of its Revolving Credit Commitment or if it would cause the Allocated Facility Amount to exceed the Aggregate Revolving Credit Commitment. Each Swing Line Loan shall be paid in full by the Borrower on or before the fifth (5th) day after the Borrowing Date for such Swing Line Loan. In addition, the Swing Line Lender (i) may at any time in its sole discretion with respect to any outstanding Swing Line Loan, or (ii) shall on the fifth (5th) day after the Borrowing Date of any Swing Line Loan, require each Revolving Credit Lender (including the Swing Line Lender) to make a Revolving Loan in the amount of such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Percentage of such Swing Line Loan (including, without limitation, any interest accrued and unpaid thereon), for the purpose of repaying such Swing Line Loan. Not later than noon (Chicago time) on the date of any notice received pursuant to this Section 2.14 (provided such notice is given by 10:00 A.M. Chicago time), each Revolving Credit Lender shall make available its required Revolving Loan, in funds immediately available in Chicago to the Administrative Agent at its address specified pursuant to Article XIV. Revolving Loans made pursuant to this Section 2.14 shall initially be ABR Loans and thereafter may be continued as ABR Loans or converted into LIBOR Loans in the manner provided in Section 2.11 and subject to the other conditions and limitations set forth in this Article II. Unless a Revolving Credit Lender shall have notified the Swing Line Lender, prior to its making any Swing Line Loan, that any applicable condition precedent set forth in Sections 5.1 or 5.2 had not then been satisfied, such Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans pursuant to this Section 2.14 to repay Swing Line Loans shall be unconditional, continuing, irrevocable and absolute and shall not be affected by any circumstances, including, without limitation, (a) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Revolving Credit Lender may have against the Administrative Agent, the Swing Line Lender or any other Person, (b) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Unmatured Default, (c) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Borrower, or (d) any other circumstances, happening or event whatsoever. In the event that any Revolving Credit Lender fails to make payment to the Administrative Agent of any amount due under this Section 2.14, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to receive, retain and apply against such obligation the principal and interest otherwise payable to such Revolving Credit Lender hereunder until the Administrative Agent receives such payment from such Revolving Credit Lender or such obligation is otherwise fully satisfied. In

-32-




addition to the foregoing, if for any reason any Revolving Credit Lender fails to make payment to the Administrative Agent of any amount due under this Section 2.14, such Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed, at the option of the Administrative Agent, to have unconditionally and irrevocably purchased from the Swing Line Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in the applicable Swing Line Loan in the amount of such payment not made by such Revolving Credit Lender, and such interest and participation may be recovered from such Revolving Credit Lender together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for each day during the period commencing on the date of demand and ending on the date such amount is received. Swing Line Loans may be outstanding for a maximum of ten (10) days during any calendar month. On the Revolving Credit Termination Date, the Borrower shall repay in full the outstanding principal balance of the Swing Line Loans.
2.15.    Competitive Bid Loans.
(a)    Competitive Bid Option. In addition to ratable Advances pursuant to Section 2.3, but subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including, without limitation the limitation set forth in Section 2.1 as to the maximum amount of all Revolving Loans and the Facility Letter of Credit Obligations not exceeding the Aggregate Revolving Credit Commitment), the Borrower may, as set forth in this Section 2.15, request the Revolving Credit Lenders, prior to the Revolving Credit Termination Date, to make offers to make Competitive Bid Loans to the Borrower. Each Revolving Credit Lender may, but shall have no obligation to, make such offers and the Borrower may, but shall have no obligation to, accept any such offers in the manner set forth in this Section 2.15. Competitive Bid Loans shall be evidenced by the Competitive Bid Notes.
(b)    Competitive Bid Quote Request. When the Borrower wishes to request offers to make Competitive Bid Loans under this Section 2.15, it shall transmit to the Administrative Agent by telecopy a Competitive Bid Quote Request substantially in the form of Exhibit C-1 hereto so as to be received no later than (i) 10:00 a.m. (Chicago time) at least five (5) Business Days prior to the Borrowing Date proposed therein, in the case of a request for a Competitive LIBOR Margin or (ii) 9:00 a.m. (Chicago time) at least one (1) Business Day prior to the Borrowing Date proposed therein, in the case of a request for an Absolute Rate specifying:
(i)    the proposed Borrowing Date for the proposed Competitive Bid Loan,
(ii)    the requested aggregate principal amount of such Competitive Bid Loan which must be at least $5,000,000 and an integral multiple of $1,000,000,
(iii)    whether the Competitive Bid Quotes requested are to set forth a Competitive LIBOR Margin or an Absolute Rate, or both, and
(iv)    the LIBOR Interest Period, if a Competitive LIBOR Margin is requested, or the Absolute Interest Period, if an Absolute Rate is requested.
The Borrower may request offers to make Competitive Bid Loans for more than one (1) (but not more than five (5)) Interest Periods in a single Competitive Bid Quote Request. No Competitive Bid Quote Request shall be given within five (5) Business Days (or such other number of days as

-33-




the Borrower and the Administrative Agent may agree) of any other Competitive Bid Quote Request. A Competitive Bid Quote Request that does not conform substantially to the form of Exhibit C-1 hereto shall be rejected, and the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower of such rejection by telecopy.
(c)    Invitation for Competitive Bid Quotes. Promptly and in any event before the close of business on the same Business Day of receipt of a Competitive Bid Quote Request that is not rejected pursuant to Section 2.15(b), the Administrative Agent shall send to each of the Revolving Credit Lenders by telecopy an Invitation for Competitive Bid Quotes substantially in the form of Exhibit C-2 hereto, which shall constitute an invitation by the Borrower to each Revolving Credit Lender to submit Competitive Bid Quotes offering to make the Competitive Bid Loans to which such Competitive Bid Quote Request relates in accordance with this Section 2.15.
(d)    Submission and Contents of Competitive Bid Quotes.
(i)    Each Revolving Credit Lender may, in its sole discretion, submit a Competitive Bid Quote containing an offer or offers to make Competitive Bid Loans in response to any Invitation for Competitive Bid Quotes. Each Competitive Bid Quote must comply with the requirements of this Section 2.15(d) and must be submitted to the Administrative Agent by telex or telecopy at its offices not later than (a) 9:00 a.m. (Chicago time) at least three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed Borrowing Date, in the case of a request for a Competitive LIBOR Margin or (b) 9:00 a.m. (Chicago time) on the proposed Borrowing Date, in the case of a request for an Absolute Rate (or, in either case upon reasonable prior notice to the Revolving Credit Lenders, such other time and rate as the Borrower and the Administrative Agent may agree); provided that Competitive Bid Quotes submitted by the Administrative Agent may only be submitted if the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower of the terms of the Offer or Offers contained therein no later than sixty (60) minutes prior to the latest time at which the relevant Competitive Bid Quotes must be submitted by the other Revolving Credit Lenders. Subject to the Borrower’s compliance with all other conditions to disbursement herein, any Competitive Bid Quote so made shall be irrevocable except with the written consent of the Administrative Agent given on the instructions of the Borrower.
(ii)    Each Competitive Bid Quote shall be in substantially the form of Exhibit C-3 hereto and shall in any case specify:
(1)    the proposed Borrowing Date, which shall be the same as that set forth in the applicable Invitation for Competitive Bid Quotes,
(2)    the principal amount of the Competitive Bid Loan for which each such offer is being made, which principal amount (x) may be greater than, less than or equal to the Revolving Credit Commitment of the quoting Revolving Credit Lender, (y) must be at least $5,000,000 and an integral multiple of $1,000,000, and (z) may not exceed the principal amount of Competitive Bid Loans for which offers are requested,

-34-




(3)    as applicable, the Competitive LIBOR Margin and Absolute Rate offered for each such Competitive Bid Loan,
(4)    the minimum amount, if any, of the Competitive Bid Loan which may be accepted by the Borrower, and
(5)    the identity of the quoting Revolving Credit Lender, provided that such Competitive Bid Loan may be funded by such Revolving Credit Lender’s Designated Lender as provided in Section 2.15(j), regardless of whether that is specified in the Competitive Bid Quote.
(iii)    The Administrative Agent shall reject any Competitive Bid Quote that:
(1)    is not substantially in the form of Exhibit C-3 hereto or does not specify all of the information required by Section 2.15(d)(ii),
(2)    contains qualifying, conditional or similar language, other than any such language contained in Exhibit C-3 hereto,
(3)    proposes terms other than or in addition to those set forth in the applicable Invitation for Competitive Bid Quotes, or
(4)    arrives after the time set forth in Section 2.15(d)(i).
If any Competitive Bid Quote shall be rejected pursuant to this Section 2.15(d)(iii), then the Administrative Agent shall notify the relevant Revolving Credit Lender of such rejection as soon as practical.
(e)    Notice to Borrower. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower of the terms (i) of any Competitive Bid Quote submitted by a Revolving Credit Lender that is in accordance with Section 2.15(d) and (ii) of any Competitive Bid Quote that amends, modifies or is otherwise inconsistent with a previous Competitive Bid Quote submitted by such Revolving Credit Lender with respect to the same Competitive Bid Quote Request. Any such subsequent Competitive Bid Quote shall be disregarded by the Administrative Agent unless such subsequent Competitive Bid Quote specifically states that it is submitted solely to correct a manifest error in such former Competitive Bid Quote. The Administrative Agent’s notice to the Borrower shall specify the aggregate principal amount of Competitive Bid Loans for which offers have been received for each Interest Period specified in the related Competitive Bid Quote Request and the respective principal amounts and Competitive LIBOR Margins or Absolute Rate, as the case may be, so offered.
(f)    Acceptance and Notice by Borrower. Not later than (i) 10:00 a.m. (Chicago time) at least three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed Borrowing Date in the case of a request for a Competitive LIBOR Margin or (ii) 10:00 a.m. (Chicago time) on the proposed Borrowing Date, in the case of a request for an Absolute Rate (or, in either case upon reasonable prior notice to the

-35-




Revolving Credit Lenders, such other time and date as the Borrower and the Administrative Agent may agree), the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of its acceptance or rejection of the offers so notified to it pursuant to Section 2.15(e); provided, however, that the failure by the Borrower to give such notice to the Administrative Agent shall be deemed to be a rejection of all such offers. In the case of acceptance, such notice (a “Competitive Bid Borrowing Notice”) shall specify the aggregate principal amount of offers for each Interest Period that are accepted. The Borrower may accept any Competitive Bid Quote in whole or in part (subject to the terms of Section 2.15(d)(iii)); provided that:
(i)    the aggregate principal amount of all Competitive Bid Loans to be disbursed on a given Borrowing Date may not exceed the applicable amount set forth in the related Competitive Bid Quote Request,
(ii)    acceptance of offers may only be made on the basis of ascending Competitive LIBOR Margins or Absolute Rates, as the case may be, and
(iii)    the Borrower may not accept any offer that is described in Section 2.15(d)(iii) or that otherwise fails to comply with the requirements of this Agreement.
(g)    Allocation by Administrative Agent. If offers are made by two (2) or more Revolving Credit Lenders with the same Competitive LIBOR Margins or Absolute Rates, as the case may be, for a greater aggregate principal amount than the amount in respect of which offers are accepted for the related Interest Period, the principal amount of Competitive Bid Loans in respect of which such offers are accepted shall be allocated by the Administrative Agent among such Revolving Credit Lenders as nearly as possible (in such multiples, not greater than $1,000,000, as the Administrative Agent may deem appropriate) in proportion to the aggregate principal amount of such offers provided, however, that no Revolving Credit Lender shall be allocated any Competitive Bid Loan which is less than the minimum amount which such Revolving Credit Lender has indicated that it is willing to accept. Allocations by the Administrative Agent of the amounts of Competitive Bid Loans shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. The Administrative Agent shall promptly, but in any event on the same Business Day, notify each Revolving Credit Lender of its receipt of a Competitive Bid Borrowing Notice and the principal amounts of the Competitive Bid Loans allocated to each participating Revolving Credit Lender.
(h)    Administration Fee. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent an administration fee of $2,500 per each Competitive Bid Quote Request transmitted by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.15(b). Such administration fee shall be payable monthly in arrears on the first Business Day of each month and on the Revolving Credit Termination Date (or such earlier date on which the Aggregate Revolving Credit Commitment shall terminate or be cancelled) for any period then ending for which such fee, if any, shall not have been theretofore paid.
(i)    Other Terms. Any Competitive Bid Loan shall not reduce the Revolving Credit Commitment of the Revolving Credit Lender making such Competitive Bid Loan, and each such Revolving Credit Lender shall continue to be obligated to fund its full Revolving Credit Percentage

-36-




of all pro rata Advances of Revolving Loans and participate in Swing Line Loans and Facility Letters of Credit under the Revolving Credit Facility. In no event can the aggregate amount of all Competitive Bid Loans at any time exceed fifty percent (50%) of the then Aggregate Revolving Credit Commitment. Competitive Bid Loans shall not be prepaid prior to the end of the applicable Interest Period. Competitive Bid Loans may not be continued and, if not repaid at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, shall (subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement) be replaced by new Competitive Bid Loans made in accordance with this Section 2.15 or by ratable Advances of Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.11.
(j)    Designated Lenders. A Revolving Credit Lender may designate its Designated Lender to fund a Competitive Bid Loan on its behalf as described in Section 2.15(d)(ii)(5). Any Designated Lender which funds a Competitive Bid Loan shall on and after the time of such funding become the obligee under such Competitive Bid Loan and be entitled to receive payment thereof when due. No Revolving Credit Lender shall be relieved of its obligation to fund a Competitive Bid Loan, and no Designated Lender shall assume such obligation, prior to the time such Competitive Bid Loan is funded.
2.16.    Method of Payment. All payments of the Obligations hereunder shall be made, without setoff, deduction, or counterclaim, in immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s address specified pursuant to Article XIV, or at any other Lending Installation of the Administrative Agent specified in writing by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower, by noon (Chicago time) on the date when due and shall be applied by the Administrative Agent among the applicable Lenders in accordance with the Class or Type of Obligation being paid. Each payment delivered to the Administrative Agent for the account of any Lender shall be delivered by the Administrative Agent to such Lender in the same type of funds that the Administrative Agent received at such Lender’s address specified pursuant to Article XIV or at any Lending Installation specified in a notice received by the Administrative Agent from such Lender promptly, which payment is expected to be made to such Lender by the close of business on the same Business Day received by Administrative Agent if received by noon (Chicago time) but shall in any event not be made to such Lender later than the next Business Day, provided that the Administrative Agent shall pay to each such Lender interest thereon, at the lesser of (i) the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (ii) the rate of interest applicable to such Loans, from the Business Day such funds are received by the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds (provided, if such funds are not received by the Administrative Agent by noon (Chicago time), such period shall commence on the Business Day immediately following the day such funds are received) until such funds are paid to each such Lender. The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to charge the account of the Borrower maintained with Administrative Agent for each payment of any of the Obligations as it becomes due hereunder.
2.17.    Notes; Telephonic Notices. Each Lender is hereby authorized to record the principal amount of each of its Loans and each repayment on the schedule attached to each of its Notes, provided, however, that the failure to so record shall not affect the Borrower’s obligations under such Note. Each Lender’s books and records, including without limitation, the information, if any, recorded by the Lender on the Schedule attached to each of its Notes, shall be deemed to be prima facia correct. The Borrower hereby authorizes the Lenders and the Administrative Agent to extend,

-37-




convert or continue Advances, effect selections of Types of Advances and to transfer funds based on telephonic notices made by any person or persons the Administrative Agent or any Lender in good faith believes to be acting on behalf of the Borrower. The Borrower agrees to deliver promptly to the Administrative Agent a written confirmation signed by an Authorized Officer of each telephonic notice, if such confirmation is requested by the Administrative Agent or any Lender. If the written confirmation differs in any material respect from the action taken by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Lenders, the records of the Administrative Agent and such Lenders shall govern absent manifest error.
2.18.    Interest Payment Dates; Interest and Fee Basis. Interest accrued on each ABR Advance shall be payable on each Payment Date, commencing with the first such date to occur after the date hereof, on any date on which such ABR Advance is prepaid, whether due to acceleration or otherwise, and at maturity. Interest accrued on that portion of the outstanding principal amount of any ABR Advance converted into a LIBOR Advance on a day other than a Payment Date shall be payable on the date of conversion. Interest accrued on each LIBOR Advance shall be payable on the last day of its applicable Interest Period, on any date on which such LIBOR Advance is prepaid, whether by acceleration or otherwise, and at maturity. Interest accrued on each LIBOR Advance having an Interest Period longer than three months shall also be payable on the last day of each three-month interval during such Interest Period. Interest accruing at the rate set forth in Section 2.13 shall be payable on demand. Interest, Facility Fees and Facility Letter of Credit Fees shall be calculated for actual days elapsed on the basis of a 360-day year. Interest shall be payable for the day an Advance is made but not for the day of any payment on the amount paid if payment is received prior to noon (Chicago time) at the place of payment. If any payment of principal of or interest on an Advance shall become due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of a principal payment, such extension of time shall be included in computing interest in connection with such payment.
2.19.    Notification of Advances, Interest Rates and Prepayments. Promptly after receipt thereof (but in no event later than one (1) Business Day prior to the proposed Borrowing Date for an ABR Advance or three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed Borrowing Date for a LIBOR Advance) the Administrative Agent will notify each applicable Lender of the contents of each Borrowing Notice, Conversion/Continuation Notice, and repayment notice received by it hereunder. The Administrative Agent will notify each applicable Lender of the interest rate applicable to each LIBOR Advance promptly upon determination of such interest rate and will give each applicable Lender prompt notice of each change in the Alternate Base Rate.
2.20.    Lending Installations. Each Lender may book its Loans and, if applicable, its participation in Facility Letters of Credit at any Lending Installation selected by such Lender and may change its Lending Installation from time to time. All terms of this Agreement shall apply to any such Lending Installation and the Notes shall be deemed held by each Lender for the benefit of such Lending Installation. Each Lender may, by written or telex notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, designate a Lending Installation through which Loans will be made by it or, if applicable, Facility Letters of Credit will be issued by it and for whose account Loan payments or payments with respect to Facility Letters of Credit are to be made.

-38-




2.21.    Non‑Receipt of Funds by the Administrative Agent. (a) Unless the Borrower or a Lender, as the case may be, notifies the Administrative Agent prior to the date on which it is scheduled to make payment to the Administrative Agent of (i) in the case of a Lender, the proceeds of a Loan or (ii) in the case of the Borrower, a payment of principal, interest or fees to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders, that it does not intend to make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such payment has been made. The Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, make the amount of such payment available to the intended recipient in reliance upon such assumption. If such Lender or the Borrower, as the case may be, has not in fact made such payment to the Administrative Agent, the recipient of such payment shall, on demand by the Administrative Agent, repay to the Administrative Agent the amount so made available together with interest thereon in respect of each day during the period commencing on the date such amount was so made available by the Administrative Agent until the date the Administrative Agent recovers such amount at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of payment by a Lender, the Federal Funds Effective Rate for such day or (ii) in the case of payment by the Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the relevant Loan.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2.23, if any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Sections 2.10, 2.14, 2.21(a), 3.5, 3.11 or 11.8 hereof, then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion and notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender and for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Swing Line Lender or the Issuing Bank, if applicable, to satisfy such Lender's obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid, and/or (ii) so long as such Lender has unsatisfied obligations under such Sections, hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any such unsatisfied obligations or any contingent reimbursement obligations of such Lender with respect to then outstanding Swing Line Loans and outstanding Facility Letters of Credit; in the case of each of (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.
2.22.    Usury. This Agreement and each Note are subject to the express condition that at no time shall the Borrower be obligated or required to pay interest on the principal balance of the Loans at a rate which could subject any Lender (including the Swing Line Lender or any Designated Lender) to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate. If by the terms of this Agreement or the Loan Documents, the Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the principal balance due hereunder at a rate in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate, the interest rate or the rate of interest set forth in Section 2.13, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to the Maximum Legal Rate and all previous payments in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to a Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the sums due under the Loans, shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term of the Loans until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Loans does not exceed the Maximum Legal Rate of interest from time to time in effect and applicable to the Loan for so long as the Loan is outstanding.

-39-




2.23.    Applications of Moneys Received. (a) After the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, all moneys collected or received by the Administrative Agent on account of the Revolving Credit Facility directly or indirectly, shall be applied in the following order of priority with respect to each payment so collected or received:
(i)    to the payment of all reasonable costs incurred in the collection of such moneys of which the Administrative Agent shall have given notice to the Borrower;
(ii)    to the reimbursement of any yield protection due to the Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with Section 4.1;
(iii)    (A) to the payment of any fee due pursuant to Section 3.12(b) in connection with the issuance of a Facility Letter of Credit to the Issuing Bank, (B) subject to Section 2.24, to the payment of the Facility Fee to the Revolving Credit Lenders, if then due, in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Percentages and (C) to the payment of the Administrative Agent’s fee to the Administrative Agent if then due;
(iv)    (a) in case the entire unpaid principal of the Obligations in connection with the Revolving Credit Facility shall not have become due and payable, the whole amount received as interest and the Facility Letter of Credit Fee then due to the Revolving Credit Lenders (other than Defaulting Lenders) as their respective Revolving Credit Percentages appear (except to the extent there are Swing Line Loans or Competitive Bid Loans outstanding in which event the full amount of interest attributable to the Swing Line Loans and Competitive Bid Loans shall be payable to the Swing Line Lender and Competitive Bid Lenders, respectively, unless the Swing Line Lender or Competitive Bid Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender), and the whole amount, if any, received as principal then due to the Revolving Credit Lenders, first to the Swing Line Lender, unless the Swing Line Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender, to repay any outstanding Swing Line Loans and then to the Revolving Credit Lenders as their respective Revolving Credit Funded Percentages appear, or (b) in case the entire unpaid principal of the Obligations in connection with the Revolving Credit Facility shall have become due and payable, as a result of a Default or otherwise, to the payment of the whole amount then due and payable on the Revolving Loans for principal, together with interest thereon or the rate of interest set forth in Section 2.13 or the interest rate, as applicable, first to the Swing Line Lender, unless the Swing Line Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender, for all such amounts due in connection with Swing Line Loans and then to the Revolving Credit Lenders (other than Defaulting Lenders) as their respective Revolving Credit Funded Percentages appear until paid in full and then to the Letter of Credit Collateral Account until the full amount of Facility Letter of Credit Obligations is on deposit therein;
(v)    subject to Section 2.24, to the payment of any principal, interest and fees due to each Defaulting Lender in connection with the Revolving Credit Facility

-40-




(provided that Administrative Agent shall have the right to setoff against such sums any amounts due from such Defaulting Lender); and
(vi)    to the payment of all other Obligations owing to the Revolving Credit Lenders.
(b)    After the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, all moneys collected or received by the Administrative Agent on account of the Term Loan Facility directly or indirectly, shall be applied in the following order of priority with respect to each payment so collected or received:
(i)    to the payment of all reasonable costs incurred in the collection of such moneys of which the Administrative Agent shall have given notice to the Borrower;
(ii)    to the reimbursement of any yield protection due to the Term Loan Lenders in accordance with Section 4.1;
(iii)    to the payment of the Administrative Agent’s fee to the Administrative Agent if then due;
(iv)    (a) in case the entire unpaid principal of the Obligations in connection with the Term Loan Facility shall not have become due and payable, the whole amount received as interest then due to the Term Loan Lenders (other than Defaulting Lenders) as their respective Term Loan Funded Percentages appear, and the whole amount, if any, received as principal then due to the Term Loan Lenders, to the Term Loan Lenders as their respective Term Loan Funded Percentages appear, or (b) in case the entire unpaid principal of the Obligations in connection with the Term Loan Facility shall have become due and payable, as a result of a Default or otherwise, to the payment of the whole amount then due and payable on the Term Loans for principal, together with interest thereon at the rate of interest set forth in Section 2.13 or the interest rate, as applicable, to the Term Loan Lenders (other than Defaulting Lenders) as their respective Term Loan Funded Percentages appear until paid in full;
(v)    subject to Section 2.24, to the payment of any principal, interest and fees due to each Defaulting Lender in connection with the Term Loan Facility (provided that Administrative Agent shall have the right to setoff against such sums any amounts due from such Defaulting Lender); and
(vi)    to the payment of all other Obligations owing to the term Loan Lenders.
(c)    After the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, if the Administrative Agent collects or receives any moneys and is unable to determine to which Facility such moneys

-41-




should be applied, the Administrative Agent shall apply such funds in the following order of priority with respect to each payment so collected or received:
(i)    to the payment of all reasonable costs incurred in the collection of such moneys of which the Administrative Agent shall have given notice to the Borrower;
(ii)    to the reimbursement of any yield protection due to the Lenders in accordance with Section 4.1;
(iii)    to the payment of the Administrative Agent’s fee to the Administrative Agent if then due; and
(iv)    to the Term Loan Lenders and the Revolving Credit Lenders on a pro-rata basis in accordance with the outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans and the Revolving Loans for further application to the Term Loan Facility or the Revolving Credit Facility in accordance with paragraph (a) or (b) above, as applicable.
2.24.    Defaulting Lenders.
Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
(a)    fees shall cease to accrue on the unused portion of the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.5, and fees shall continue to accrue on the used portion of the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.5, but shall not be payable to such Defaulting Lender by the Borrower until such Defaulting Lender ceases to be a Defaulting Lender;
(b)    the Commitments and Outstanding Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether all Lenders or the Required Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 9.2), provided that any waiver, amendment or modification that increases a Commitment of a Defaulting Lender, forgives all or any portion of the principal amount of any Loan or reimbursement obligation or interest thereon owing to a Defaulting Lender, reduces the Applicable Margin on the underlying interest rate options owing to a Defaulting Lender or extends a Termination Date shall require the consent of such Defaulting Lender;
(c)    if any Swing Line Exposure or Facility Letter of Credit Exposure exists at the time a Revolving Credit Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then:
(i)    all or any part of such Swing Line Exposure and Facility Letter of Credit Exposure shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Percentages but only to the extent

-42-




(x) the sum of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Outstanding Revolving Credit Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Swing Line Exposure and Facility Letter of Credit Exposure does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Credit Commitments, (y) the sum of each non-Defaulting Lender’s Outstanding Revolving Credit Exposures would not exceed its Revolving Credit Commitment and (z) the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 are satisfied at such time; and
(ii)    if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrower shall (x) first, within one (1) Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent, prepay such Swing Line Exposure and (y) second, within five (5) Business Days following notice by the Administrative Agent, cash collateralize such Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above) in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3.14 for so long as such Facility Letter of Credit Exposure is outstanding;
(iii)    if the Borrower cash collateralizes any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure pursuant to Section 2.24(c), the Borrower shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 3.12(a) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure during the period such Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure is cash collateralized;
(iv)    if the Facility Letter of Credit Exposure of the non-Defaulting Lenders is reallocated pursuant to Section 2.24(c), then the fees payable to the Revolving Credit Lenders pursuant to Section 2.5 and Section 3.12(a) shall be adjusted in accordance with such non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Credit Percentages; or
(v)    if any Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure is neither cash collateralized nor reallocated pursuant to Section 2.24(c), then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Issuing Bank or any Revolving Credit Lender hereunder, all Facility Fees that otherwise would have been payable to such Defaulting Lender (solely with respect to the portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment that was utilized by such Facility Letter of Credit Exposure) and Facility Letter of Credit Fees payable under Section 3.12(a) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure shall be payable to the Issuing Bank until such Facility Letter of Credit Exposure is cash collateralized and/or reallocated; and
(d)    so long as any Revolving Credit Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Swing Line Lender shall not be required to fund any Swing Line Loan and the Issuing Bank shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Facility Letter of Credit, unless it is satisfied that the related exposure will be 100% covered by the Revolving Credit Commitments of the non-Defaulting Lenders and/or cash collateral will be provided by the Borrower in the amount of the Defaulting Lender’s Facility Letter of Credit Exposure in accordance with Section 2.24(c), and participating interests in any such

-43-




newly issued or increased Facility Letter of Credit or newly made Swing Line Loan shall be allocated among non-Defaulting Lenders in a manner consistent with Section 2.24(c)(i) (and Defaulting Lenders shall not participate therein).
In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Borrower, and, if applicable, the Issuing Bank and the Swing Line Lender each agrees that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then the Swing Line Exposure and Facility Letter of Credit Exposure of the Revolving Credit Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment and on such date such Revolving Credit Lender shall purchase at par such of the Revolving Loans of the other Revolving Credit Lenders (other than Competitive Loans and Swing Line Loans) as the Administrative shall determine may be necessary in order for such Revolving Credit Lender to hold such Revolving Loans in accordance with its Revolving Credit Percentage.
2.25.    Incremental Loans. The Borrower may by written notice to the Administrative Agent, elect to establish (i) one or more new term loan commitments (the “New Term Loan Commitments”), in an aggregate amount up to $100,000,000 and/or (ii) one or more new revolving credit commitments (the “New Revolving Credit Commitments”), in an aggregate amount up to $400,000,000. Each such notice shall specify (A) the date (each, an “Increased Amount Date”) on which the New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than five (5) Business Days after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent, (B) the amount of such New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments, which must be at least $25,000,000, and (C) the identity of each (x) Lender or (y) other Purchaser that has been approved in writing by the Administrative Agent (which approval, in the case of the Administrative Agent, will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) and the Borrower (each such Lender or Purchaser, a “New Term Loan Lender” or a “New Revolving Credit Lender”, as applicable) to which such New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments will be allocated and the amounts of such allocations; provided that any Lender approached to provide all or a portion of the New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide a New Term Loan Commitment and/or a New Revolving Credit Commitment. Such New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments shall become effective as of such Increased Amount Date; provided that, both before and after giving effect to such New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments (1) no Default shall exist on such Increased Amount Date before or after giving effect to such New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable; (2) both before and after giving effect to the making of any New Term Loans and/or Revolving Loans, each of the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 shall be satisfied, unless waived by each New Term Loan Lender or New Revolving Credit Lender, as applicable; (3) the Borrower shall be in pro forma compliance with the covenants set forth in Section 7.20 after giving effect to such New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments as of the last day of the most recently ended fiscal quarter for which a compliance certificate has been delivered pursuant to Section 7.1(v); (4) the New Term Loan Commitments and/or New Revolving Credit Commitments shall be effected pursuant to one or more Additional Credit Extension Amendments executed and delivered by the Borrower, the New Term Loan Lender and/or the New Revolving Credit Lender and the

-44-




Administrative Agent, and each of which shall be recorded in the Register (as defined in Section 13.3.4); and (5) the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent that any increase to be effected under this Section 2.25 has been duly authorized by all appropriate action.
On any Increased Amount Date on which New Revolving Credit Commitments are effected, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (a) each of the Revolving Credit Lenders shall assign to each of the New Revolving Credit Lenders, and each of the New Revolving Credit Lenders shall purchase from each of the Revolving Credit Lenders, at the principal amount thereof (together with accrued interest), such interests in the Revolving Loans outstanding on such Increased Amount Date as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such assignments and purchases, such Revolving Loans will be held by existing Revolving Credit Lenders and New Revolving Credit Lenders ratably in accordance with their Revolving Credit Commitments after giving effect to the addition of such New Revolving Credit Commitments to the Revolving Credit Commitments, (b) each New Revolving Credit Commitment shall be deemed for all purposes a Revolving Credit Commitment and each Loan made thereunder shall be deemed, for all purposes, a Revolving Loan and (c) each New Revolving Credit Lender shall become a Lender with respect to its New Revolving Credit Commitment and all matters relating thereto.
On any Increased Amount Date on which any New Term Loan Commitments are effective, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (i) each New Term Loan Lender shall make a Term Loan to the Borrower (a “New Term Loan”) in an amount equal to its New Term Loan Commitment, and (ii) each New Term Loan Lender shall become a Term Loan Lender hereunder with respect to the New Term Loan Commitment and the New Term Loans made pursuant thereto.
The Administrative Agent shall notify applicable Lenders promptly upon receipt of the Borrower’s notice of each Increased Amount Date and in respect thereof the New Term Loan Commitments and the New Term Loan Lenders and/or the New Revolving Credit Commitments and the New Revolving Credit Lenders.
The terms and provisions of the New Term Loans and New Term Loan Commitments shall be identical to the existing Term Loans and the existing Term Loan Commitments. The terms and provisions of the New Revolving Credit Commitments shall be identical to the existing Revolving Credit Commitments. In any event, the upfront fees applicable to the New Term Loans and/or the New Revolving Credit Commitments shall be determined by the Borrower and the applicable New Term Loan Lenders and/or New Revolving Credit Lenders and shall be set forth in each applicable Additional Credit Extension Amendment. Each Additional Credit Extension Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders (unless the consent of such other Lenders is required by Section 9.2), effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provision of this Section 2.25.

(iii)    issue any Facility Letter of Credit having an expiration date after the Revolving Credit Termination Date; provided that (a) a Facility Letter of Credit may contain a provision providing for automatic extension of the expiration date in the absence of a non-renewal from the Administrative Agent, but in no event shall any such provision permit the extension of the expiration date of such Facility Letter of Credit beyond the Revolving Credit Termination Date except in accordance with clause (b) of this proviso, and (b) the Issuing Bank may issue a Facility Letter of Credit having an expiration date which is after the Revolving Credit Termination Date so long as such expiration date is not later than the first anniversary of the Revolving Credit Termination Date and the Borrower complies with Sections 3.13 and 3.14 hereof; or

-46-




(iv)    issue any Facility Letter of Credit having an expiration date which is more than fifteen (15) months after the date of its issuance; provided that (a) a Facility Letter of Credit may contain a provision providing for automatic extension of the expiration date in the absence of a non-renewal from the Administrative Agent, but in no event shall any such provision permit the extension of the expiration date of such Facility Letter of Credit beyond the Revolving Credit Termination Date except in accordance with clause (b) of this proviso, and (b) the Issuing Bank may issue a Facility Letter of Credit having an expiration date which is after the Revolving Credit Termination Date so long as such expiration date is not later than the first anniversary of the Termination Date and the Borrower complies with Sections 3.13 and 3.14 hereof.
3.3.    Conditions. In addition to being subject to the satisfaction of the conditions contained in Section 5.2 hereof, the obligation of the Issuing Bank to issue any Facility Letter of Credit is subject to the satisfaction in full of the following conditions:
(i)    the Borrower shall have delivered to the Issuing Bank at such times and in such manner as the Issuing Bank may reasonably prescribe such documents and materials as may be reasonably required pursuant to the terms of the proposed Facility Letter of Credit (it being understood that if any inconsistency exists between such documents and the Loan Documents, the terms of the Loan Documents shall control) and the proposed Facility Letter of Credit shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Issuing Bank as to form and content;
(ii)    as of the date of issuance, no order, judgment or decree of any court, arbitrator or governmental authority shall purport by its terms to enjoin or restrain the Issuing Bank from issuing the requested Facility Letter of Credit and no law, rule or regulation applicable to the Issuing Bank and no request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any governmental authority with jurisdiction over the Issuing Bank shall prohibit or request that the Issuing Bank refrain from the issuance of Letters of Credit generally or the issuance of the requested Facility Letter or Credit in particular; and
(iii)    there shall not exist any Default or Unmatured Default.
3.4.    Procedure for Issuance of Facility Letters of Credit.
(a)    Borrower shall give the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent at least five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice of any requested issuance of a Facility Letter of Credit under this Agreement (a “Letter of Credit Request”) (except that, in lieu of such written notice, the Borrower may give the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent telephonic notice of such request if confirmed in writing by delivery to the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent (i) immediately (A) of a telecopy of the written notice required hereunder which has been signed by an Authorized Officer, or (B) of a telex containing all information required to be contained in such written notice and (ii) promptly (but in no event later than the requested date of issuance) of the written notice

-47-




required hereunder containing the original signature of an authorized officer); such notice shall specify:
(1)    the stated amount of the Facility Letter of Credit requested (which stated amount shall not be less than $50,000);
(2)    the effective date (which day shall be a Business Day) of issuance of such requested Facility Letter of Credit (the “Issuance Date”);
(3)    the date on which such requested Facility Letter of Credit is to expire (which date shall be a Business Day and, except as otherwise permitted by Section 3.2(iii) or 3.2(iv), shall in no event be later than the earlier of fifteen months after the Issuance Date and the Revolving Credit Termination Date);
(4)    the purpose for which such Facility Letter of Credit is to be issued; and
(5)    the Person for whose benefit the requested Facility Letter of Credit is to be issued.
At the time such request is made, the Borrower shall also provide the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Bank with a copy of the form of the Facility Letter of Credit that the Borrower is requesting be issued, which shall be subject to the approval of the Issuing Bank and Administrative Agent. Such notice, to be effective, must be received by such Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent not later than 2:00 p.m. (Chicago time) on the last Business Day on which notice can be given under this Section 3.4(a). The Administrative Agent shall promptly give a copy of the Letter of Credit Request to the other Lenders.
(b)    Subject to the terms and conditions of this Article III and provided that the applicable conditions set forth in Section 4.2 hereof have been satisfied, such Issuing Bank shall, on the Issuance Date, issue a Facility Letter of Credit on behalf of the Borrower in accordance with the Letter of Credit Request and the Issuing Bank’s usual and customary business practices (including the execution of a letter of credit application on the Issuing Bank’s standard forms) unless the Issuing Bank has actually received (i) written notice from the Borrower specifically revoking the Letter of Credit Request with respect to such Facility Letter of Credit, (ii) written notice from a Revolving Credit Lender, which complies with the provisions of Section 3.11(a), or (iii) written or telephonic notice from the Administrative Agent stating that the issuance of such Facility Letter of Credit would violate Section 3.2.
(c)    The Issuing Bank shall give the Administrative Agent and the Borrower written or telex notice, or telephonic notice confirmed promptly thereafter in writing, of the issuance of a Facility Letter of Credit (the “Issuance Notice”) and the Administrative Agent shall promptly give a copy of the Issuance Notice to the other Revolving Credit Lenders.

-48-




(d)    The Issuing Bank shall not extend or modify any Facility Letter of Credit unless the requirements of this Section 3.4 are met as though a new Facility Letter of Credit was being requested and issued.
3.5.    Administration; Reimbursement by Revolving Credit Lenders. Upon receipt from the beneficiary of any Facility Letter of Credit of any demand for payment under such Facility Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank shall notify the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower and each Revolving Credit Lender as to the amount to be paid by the Issuing Bank as a result of such demand and the proposed payment date (the “LC Payment Date”). The responsibility of the Issuing Bank to the Borrower and each Revolving Credit Lender shall be only to determine that the documents (including each demand for payment) delivered under each Facility Letter of Credit in connection with such presentment shall be in conformity in all material respects with such Facility Letter of Credit. The Issuing Bank shall endeavor to exercise the same care in the issuance and administration of the Facility Letters of Credit as it does with respect to letters of credit in which no participations are granted, it being understood that in the absence of any gross negligence or willful misconduct by the Issuing Bank (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision), each Revolving Credit Lender shall be unconditionally and irrevocably liable without regard to the occurrence of any Default or any condition precedent whatsoever, to reimburse the Issuing Bank on demand for (i) such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Percentage of the amount of each payment made by the Issuing Bank under each Facility Letter of Credit to the extent such amount is not reimbursed by the Borrower pursuant to Section 3.6 below, plus (ii) interest on the foregoing amount to be reimbursed by such Revolving Credit Lender, for each day from the date of the Issuing Bank’s demand for such reimbursement (or, if such demand is made after 11:00 a.m. (Chicago time) on such date, from the next succeeding Business Day) to the date on which such Revolving Credit Lender pays the amount to be reimbursed by it, at a rate of interest per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate for the first three (3) days and, thereafter, at a rate of interest equal to the rate applicable to ABR Advances.
3.6.    Reimbursement by Borrower. The Borrower shall be irrevocably and unconditionally obligated to reimburse the Issuing Bank on or before the applicable LC Payment Date for any amounts to be paid by the Issuing Bank upon any drawing under any Facility Letter of Credit, without presentment, demand, protest or other formalities of any kind; provided that neither the Borrower nor any Revolving Credit Lender shall hereby be precluded from asserting any claim for direct (but not consequential) damages suffered by the Borrower or such Revolving Credit Lender to the extent, but only to the extent, caused by (i) the willful misconduct or gross negligence of the Issuing Bank (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) in determining whether a request presented under any Facility Letter of Credit issued by it complied with the terms of such Facility Letter of Credit or (ii) the Issuing Bank’s failure to pay under any Facility Letter of Credit issued by it after the presentation to it of a request strictly complying with the terms and conditions of such Facility Letter of Credit. All such amounts paid by the Issuing Bank and remaining unpaid by the Borrower shall bear interest, payable on demand, for each day until paid at a rate per annum equal to (x) the rate applicable to ABR Advances for such day if such day falls on or before the applicable LC Payment Date and (y) the sum of 2% plus the rate applicable to ABR Advances for such day if such day falls after such LC Payment

-49-




Date. The Issuing Bank will pay to each Revolving Credit Lender ratably in accordance with its Revolving Credit Percentage all amounts received by it from the Borrower for application in payment, in whole or in part, of the Reimbursement Obligation in respect of any Facility Letter of Credit issued by the Issuing Bank, but only to the extent such Revolving Credit Lender has made payment to the Issuing Bank in respect of such Facility Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 3.5. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including without limitation the submission of a Borrowing Notice in compliance with Section 2.10 and the satisfaction of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article V), the Borrower may request an Advance of Revolving Loans hereunder for the purpose of satisfying any Reimbursement Obligation.
3.7.    Obligations Absolute. The Borrower’s obligations under Section 3.6 shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment which the Borrower may have or have had against the Issuing Bank, any Revolving Credit Lender or any beneficiary of a Facility Letter of Credit. The Borrower further agrees with the Issuing Bank and the Revolving Credit Lenders that the Issuing Bank and the Revolving Credit Lenders shall not be responsible for, and the Borrower’s Reimbursement Obligation in respect of any Facility Letter of Credit shall not be affected by, among other things, the validity or genuineness of documents or of any endorsements thereon, even if such documents should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, fraudulent or forged, or any dispute between or among the Borrower, any of its Affiliates, the beneficiary of any Facility Letter of Credit or any financing institution or other party to whom any Facility Letter of Credit may be transferred or any claims or defenses whatsoever of the Borrower or of any of its Affiliates against the beneficiary of any Facility Letter of Credit or any such transferee. The Issuing Bank shall not be liable for any error, omission, interruption or delay in transmission, dispatch or delivery of any message or advice, however transmitted, in connection with any Facility Letter of Credit. The Borrower agrees that any action taken or omitted by the Issuing Bank or any Revolving Credit Lender under or in connection with each Facility Letter of Credit and the related drafts and documents, if done without gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision), shall be binding upon the Borrower and shall not put the Issuing Bank or any Revolving Credit Lender under any liability to the Borrower. Nothing in this Section 3.7 is intended to limit the right of the Borrower to make a claim against the Issuing Bank for damages as contemplated by the proviso to the first sentence of Section 3.6.
3.8.    Actions of Issuing Bank. The Issuing Bank shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any Facility Letter of Credit, draft, writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, cablegram, telegram, telecopy, telex or teletype message, statement, order or other document believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants and other experts selected by the Issuing Bank. The Issuing Bank shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement unless it shall first have received such advice or concurrence of the applicable Required Lenders as it reasonably deems appropriate or it shall first be indemnified to its reasonable satisfaction by the Revolving Credit Lenders against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 3.8, the Issuing Bank shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this

-50-




Agreement in accordance with a request of the applicable Required Lenders, and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon the Revolving Credit Lenders and any future holders of a participation in any Facility Letter of Credit.
3.9.    Indemnification. The Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Revolving Credit Lender, the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent, and their respective directors, officers, agents, attorneys, professional advisors and employees from and against any and all claims and damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including reasonable counsel fees and disbursements) which such Revolving Credit Lender, the Issuing Bank, the Administrative Agent or their respective directors, officers, agents, attorneys, professional advisors and employees, may incur (or which may be claimed against such Revolving Credit Lender, the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent by any Person whatsoever) by reason of or in connection with the issuance, execution and delivery or transfer of or payment or failure to pay under any Facility Letter of Credit or any actual or proposed use of any Facility Letter of Credit, including, without limitation, any claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses which the Issuing Bank may incur by reason of or in connection with (i) the failure of any other Revolving Credit Lender to fulfill or comply with its obligations to the Issuing Bank hereunder (but nothing herein contained shall affect any rights the Borrower may have against any Defaulting Lender) or (ii) by reason of or on account of the Issuing Bank issuing any Facility Letter of Credit which specifies that the term “Beneficiary” included therein includes any successor by operation of law of the named Beneficiary, but which Facility Letter of Credit does not require that any drawing by any such successor Beneficiary be accompanied by a copy of a legal document, satisfactory to the Issuing Bank, evidencing the appointment of such successor Beneficiary; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to indemnify any Revolving Credit Lender, the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent or their respective directors, officers, agents, attorneys, professional advisors and employees for any claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses to the extent, but only to the extent, caused by (x) the willful misconduct or gross negligence of the Issuing Bank (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) in determining whether a request presented under any Facility Letter of Credit complied with the terms of such Facility Letter of Credit or (y) the Issuing Bank’s failure to pay under any Facility Letter of Credit after the presentation to it of a request strictly complying with the terms and conditions of such Facility Letter of Credit. Nothing in this Section 3.9 is intended to limit the obligations of the Borrower under any other provision of this Agreement.
3.10.    Lenders’ Indemnification. Each Revolving Credit Lender shall, ratably in accordance with its Revolving Credit Percentage, indemnify the Issuing Bank, its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, agents, attorneys, professional advisors and employees (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower) against any cost, expense (including reasonable counsel fees and disbursements), claim, demand, action, loss or liability (except such as result from such indemnitees’ gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) or the Issuing Bank’s failure to pay under any Facility Letter of Credit after the presentation to it of a request strictly complying with the terms and conditions of the Facility Letter of Credit) that such indemnitees may suffer or incur in connection with this Article III or any action taken or omitted by such indemnitees hereunder.

-51-




3.11.    Participation.
(a)    Immediately upon issuance by the Issuing Bank of any Facility Letter of Credit or Modification in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3.4, each Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to have irrevocably and unconditionally purchased and received from the Issuing Bank, without recourse, representation or warranty, an undivided interest and participation equal to such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Percentage in such Facility Letter of Credit (including, without limitation, all obligations of the Borrower with respect thereto) and any security therefor or guaranty pertaining thereto; provided that a Letter of Credit issued by the Issuing Bank shall not be deemed to be a Facility Letter of Credit for purposes of this Section 3.11 if the Issuing Bank shall have received written notice from any Revolving Credit Lender on or before the Business Day prior to the date of its issuance of such Letter of Credit that one or more of the conditions contained in Section 5.2 is not then satisfied, and in the event the Issuing Bank receives such a notice it shall have no further obligation to issue any Facility Letter of Credit until such notice is withdrawn by that Revolving Credit Lender or the Issuing Bank receives a notice from the Administrative Agent that such condition has been effectively waived in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. Each Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to make further Revolving Credit to the Borrower (other than any payments such Revolving Credit Lender is required to make under subparagraph (b) below) or issue any letters of credit on behalf of Borrower shall be reduced by such Revolving Credit Lender’s pro rata share of each Facility Letter of Credit outstanding.
(b)    Whenever the Issuing Bank receives a payment on account of a Reimbursement Obligation, including any interest thereon, the Issuing Bank shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to each Revolving Credit Lender which has funded its participating interest therein, in immediately available funds, an amount equal to such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Percentage thereof.
(c)    Upon the request of the Administrative Agent or any Revolving Credit Lender, an Issuing Bank shall furnish to such Administrative Agent or Revolving Credit Lender copies of any Facility Letter of Credit to which that Issuing Bank is party and such other documentation as may reasonably be requested by the Administrative Agent or Revolving Credit Lender.
(d)    The obligations of a Revolving Credit Lender to make payments to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Issuing Bank with respect to a Facility Letter of Credit shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, not subject to any counterclaim, setoff, qualification or exception whatsoever other than a failure of any such Issuing Bank to comply with the terms of this Agreement relating to the issuance of such Facility Letter of Credit and shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement under all circumstances.
3.12.    Compensation for Facility Letters of Credit.
(a)    The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable account of the Revolving Credit Lenders, based upon the Revolving Credit Lenders’ respective Revolving Credit Percentages, a per annum fee (the “Facility Letter of Credit Fee”) with respect to each Facility Letter of Credit that is equal to the LIBOR Applicable Margin in effect from time to time. The Facility Letter of Credit Fee relating to any Facility Letter of Credit shall be due and payable quarterly in

-52-




arrears on the last day of each calendar quarter and, to the extent any such fees are then due and unpaid, on the Revolving Credit Termination Date. The Administrative Agent shall promptly remit such Facility Letter of Credit Fees, when paid, to the Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with their Revolving Credit Percentages thereof.
(b)    The Issuing Bank also shall have the right to receive solely for its own account an issuance fee of 0.125% of the face amount of each Facility Letter of Credit, payable by the Borrower on the Issuance Date for each such Facility Letter of Credit. The Issuing Bank shall also be entitled to receive its reasonable out‑of‑pocket costs and the Issuing Bank’s standard charges of issuing, amending and servicing Facility Letters of Credit and processing draws thereunder.
3.13.    Expiration after the Termination Date. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if any Facility Letters of Credit, by their terms, shall mature after the Revolving Credit Termination Date, then, on and after the Revolving Credit Termination Date, the provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect with respect to such Facility Letters of Credit, and the Borrower shall comply with the provisions of Section 3.14.
3.14.    Letter of Credit Collateral Account.
(a)    If, at any time and from time to time, any Facility Letter of Credit shall have been issued, renewed or extended hereunder so that such Facility Letter of Credit shall expire on a date after the Revolving Credit Termination Date, then, on the date that such Facility Letter of Credit is so issued, renewed or extended, the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Revolving Credit Lenders, in same day funds at the Administrative Agent’s office specified in Article XIV, for deposit in a special cash collateral account (the “Letter of Credit Collateral Account”) to be maintained in the name of the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Revolving Credit Lenders) and under its sole dominion and control at such place as shall be designated by the Administrative Agent, an amount equal to 100% of the amount of the Letter of Credit Obligations under such Facility Letter of Credit. Such Letter of Credit Account shall also be funded to the extent required by Section 9.1. Interest shall accrue on the Letter of Credit Collateral Account at a rate equal to the rate on overnight funds.
(b)    The Borrower hereby pledges, assigns and grants to the Administrative Agent, as Administrative Agent for its benefit and the ratable benefit of the Revolving Credit Lenders a lien on and a security interest in, the following collateral (the “Letter of Credit Collateral”):
(i)    the Letter of Credit Collateral Account, all cash deposited therein and all certificates and instruments, if any, from time to time representing or evidencing the Letter of Credit Collateral Account;
(ii)    all notes, certificates of deposit and other instruments from time to time hereafter delivered to or otherwise possessed by the Administrative Agent for or on behalf of the Borrower in substitution for or in respect of any or all of the then existing Letter of Credit Collateral;

-53-




(iii)    all interest, dividends, cash, instruments and other property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of the then existing Letter of Credit Collateral; and
(iv)    to the extent not covered by the above clauses, all proceeds of any or all of the foregoing Letter of Credit Collateral.
(c)    The lien and security interest granted hereby secures the payment of all obligations of the Borrower now or hereafter existing hereunder and under any other Loan Document.
(d)    The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent for the ratable benefit of the Revolving Credit Lenders to apply, from time to time after funds are deposited in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account and for so long as a Default has occurred and is continuing, funds then held in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account to the payment of any amounts, in such order as the Administrative Agent may elect, as shall have become due and payable by the Borrower to the Revolving Credit Lenders in respect of the Facility Letters of Credit.
(e)    Neither the Borrower nor any Person claiming or acting on behalf of or through the Borrower shall have any right to withdraw any of the funds held in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower may from time to time at the end of any fiscal quarter request that the Administrative Agent return to the Borrower any funds on deposit in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account in excess of the amounts required to be on deposit therein pursuant to Section 3.14(a), and, so long as no Default or Unmatured Default has occurred and is continuing, the Administrative Agent shall comply with such request.
(f)    The Borrower agrees that it will not (i) sell or otherwise dispose of any interest in the Letter of Credit Collateral or (ii) create or permit to exist any lien, security interest or other charge or encumbrance upon or with respect to any of the Letter of Credit Collateral, except for the security interest created by this Section 3.14.
(g)    If any Default shall have occurred and be continuing:
(i)    The Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, without notice to the Borrower except as required by law and at any time from time to time, charge, set off or otherwise apply all or any part of first, (x) amounts previously drawn on any Facility Letter of Credit that have not been reimbursed by the Borrower and (y) any Facility Letter of Credit Obligations described in clause (b) of the definition thereof that are then due and payable and second, any other unpaid Obligations then due and payable against the Letter of Credit Collateral Account or any part thereof, in such order as the Administrative Agent shall elect. The rights of the Administrative Agent under this Section 3.14 are in addition to any rights and remedies which any Lender may have.
(ii)    The Administrative Agent may also exercise, in its sole discretion, in respect of the Letter of Credit Collateral Account, in addition to the other rights and remedies provided herein or otherwise available to it, all the rights and remedies of a secured party

-54-




upon default under the Uniform Commercial Code in effect in the State of New York at that time.
(iii)    The Administrative Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Letter of Credit Collateral if the Letter of Credit Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which the Administrative Agent accords its own property, it being understood that, assuming such treatment, the Administrative Agent shall not have any responsibility or liability with respect thereto.
(iv)    At such time as all Defaults have been cured or waived in writing, all fees and expenses, if any, owing to the Revolving Credit Lenders paid in full, and all Facility Letters of Credit returned to the Issuing Bank and cancelled, all amounts remaining in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account shall be promptly returned to the Borrower. Absent such cure or written waiver, any surplus of the funds held in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account and remaining after return of all Facility Letters of Credit to the Issuing Bank and payment in full of all of the Obligations of the Borrower hereunder and under any other Loan Document after the Revolving Credit Termination Date shall be paid promptly to the Borrower or to whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such surplus.
The terms of this Section 3.14 shall only apply in the event that (a) a Facility Letter of Credit will expire by its terms after the Revolving Credit Termination Date or (b) the Borrower must otherwise cash-collateralize Facility Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.24(c) or Section 9.1.
3.15.    Existing Letters of Credit. It is hereby acknowledged and agreed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and all the Revolving Credit Lenders party hereto that on the Closing Date, the letters of credit previously issued by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and any other Revolving Credit Lender acting as “Issuing Bank” under the Existing Revolving Credit Agreement, and more particularly set forth on Schedule 3.15 hereto, shall be transferred to this Agreement and shall be deemed to be Letters of Credit hereunder.

ARTICLE IV    

CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES
4.1.    Yield Protection.
If any Change in Law:
(a)    imposes on any Lender or the Issuing Bank or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein, or
(b)    imposes or increases or deems applicable any reserve, assessment, insurance charge, special deposit, compulsory loan, liquidity or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with

-55-




or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation or the Issuing Bank (other than reserves and assessments taken into account in determining the interest rate applicable to LIBOR Advances), or
(c)    subjects any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, or
(d)    imposes any other condition the result of which is to increase the cost to any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation or the Issuing Bank of making, continuing, converting to, funding or maintaining its LIBOR Loans, or of issuing or participating in Facility Letters of Credit, or reduces any amount receivable by any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation or the Issuing Bank in connection with its LIBOR Loans, Facility Letters of Credit or participations therein, or requires any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation or the Issuing Bank to make any payment calculated by reference to the amount of LIBOR Loans, Facility Letters of Credit or participations therein held or interest or LC Fees received by it, by an amount deemed material by such Lender or the Issuing Bank as the case may be,
and the result of any of the foregoing would be to increase the cost to such Lender or applicable Lending Installation or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, of making or maintaining its LIBOR Loans or Commitments or of issuing or participating in Facility Letters of Credit or to reduce the return received by such Lender or applicable Lending Installation or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, in connection with such LIBOR Loans, Commitments, Facility Letters of Credit or participations therein, then, within fifteen (15) days after demand by such Lender or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, the Borrower shall pay such Lender or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, for such increased cost or reduction in amount received.
4.2.    Changes in Capital Adequacy Regulations.
If a Lender or the Issuing Bank in good faith determines the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by such Lender or the Issuing Bank, any Lending Installation of such Lender or the Issuing Bank or any corporation controlling such Lender or the Issuing Bank is increased as a result of a Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity adequacy, then, within fifteen (15) days after demand by such Lender or the Issuing Bank, the Borrower shall pay such Lender or the Issuing Bank the amount necessary to compensate for any shortfall in the rate of return on the portion of such increased capital or liquidity which such Lender or the Issuing Bank in good faith determines is attributable to this Agreement, its Outstanding Credit Exposure or its obligation to make Loans and issue or participate in Facility Letters of Credit, as the case may be, hereunder (after taking into account such Lender’s or the Issuing Bank’s policies as to capital adequacy).
4.3.    Availability of Types of Advances.
If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a LIBOR Advance:

-56-




(e)    the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR Base Rate for such Interest Period; or
(f)    the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders (or, in the case of a LIBOR Competitive Bid Loan, the Revolving Credit Lender that is required to make such Revolving Loan) that the LIBOR Base Rate or for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loans) included in such Advance for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and the applicable Lenders by telephone or telecopy as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the applicable Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Conversion/Continuation Notice that requests the conversion of any Advance to, or continuation of any Advance as, a LIBOR Advance shall be ineffective, (ii) if any Borrowing Notice requests a LIBOR Advance, such Advance shall be made as an Alternate Base Rate Advance and (iii) any request by the Borrower for a LIBOR Competitive Bid Loan shall be ineffective; provided that (A) if the circumstances giving rise to such notice do not affect all the Revolving Credit Lenders, then requests by the Borrower for Competitive Bid Loans may be made to Revolving Credit Lenders that are not affected thereby and (B) if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type or Class of Advance, then the other Types or Classes of Advance shall be permitted.
4.4.    Funding Indemnification.
If any payment of a ratable LIBOR Advance or a Competitive Bid Loan is made by the Borrower on a date which is not the last day of the applicable Interest Period, or otherwise occurs because of acceleration or prepayment, or a ratable LIBOR Advance or a Competitive Bid Loan is not made, continued, converted or prepaid on the date specified by the Borrower for any reason other than default by the Lenders or as a result of unavailability pursuant to Section 4.3, or the assignment of a LIBOR Advance or Competitive Bid Loan pursuant to Section 4.7 or the conversion of a LIBOR Advance shall occur on a day other than the last day of an Interest Period therefor, the Borrower will indemnify each applicable Lender for any loss or cost incurred by it resulting therefrom, including, without limitation, any loss or cost in liquidating or employing deposits acquired to fund or maintain the ratable LIBOR Advance or Competitive Bid Loan, as the case may be, and shall pay all such losses or costs within fifteen (15) days after written demand therefor. Nothing in this Section 4.4 shall authorize the prepayment of a Competitive Bid Loan prior to the end of the applicable Interest Period.
4.5.    (1) Payment Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such

-57-




Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 4.5) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
(a)    Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for, Other Taxes.
(b)    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 4.5, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(c)    Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)    Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender's failure to comply with the provisions of Section 13.2.4 relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (e).
(e)    Status of Lenders. (1) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably

-58-




requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 4.5(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if in the Lender's reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
(i)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
(A) any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. Federal backup withholding tax;

(B) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

(1) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the "interest" article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the "business profits" or "other income" article of such tax treaty;

(2) executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;

(3) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit L-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a "bank" within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a "10 percent shareholder" of the Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a "controlled foreign corporation" described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a "U.S. Tax Compliance

-59-




Certificate") and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or

(4) to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit L-2 or Exhibit L-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit L-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;

(C) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed originals of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. Federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(D) if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender's obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), "FATCA" shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(f)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 4.5 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 4.5),

-60-




it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 4.5 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(g)    Survival. Each party's obligations under this Section 4.5 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.
(h)    FATCA Acknowledgement. The Borrower, the Guarantor, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders acknowledge and agree that, solely for purposes of determining the applicability of U.S. Federal withholding Taxes imposed by FATCA, from and after the Effective Date, this Agreement will not be treated as a “grandfathered obligation” under FATCA. 
(i)    Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 4.5, the term "applicable law" includes FATCA.
4.6.    Lender Statements; Survival of Indemnity.
Each Lender shall use its reasonable efforts to designate an alternate Lending Installation with respect to its LIBOR Loans to reduce any liability of the Borrower to such Lender under Sections 4.1, 4.2 and 4.5 or to avoid the unavailability of Advances under Section 4.3, so long as such designation does not reduce such Lender’s income or increase such Lender’s liabilities and is made on terms that, in the sole judgment of such Lender, do not cause such Lender to suffer any economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage. Each Lender shall deliver a written statement of such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) as to the amount due, if any, under Section 4.1, 4.2, 4.4 or 4.5. Such written statement shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculations upon which such Lender determined such amount and shall be final, conclusive and binding on the Borrower in the absence of manifest error. Determination of amounts payable under such Sections in connection with a LIBOR Loan shall be calculated as though each Lender funded its LIBOR Loan through the purchase of a deposit of the type and maturity corresponding to the deposit used as a reference in determining the LIBOR Rate applicable to such Loan, whether in fact that is the case or not. Unless otherwise provided herein, the amount specified in the written

-61-




statement of any Lender shall be payable on demand after receipt by the Borrower of such written statement. The obligations of the Borrower under Sections 4.1, 4.2, 4.4 and 4.5 shall survive payment of the Obligations and termination of this Agreement.
4.7.    Replacement of Lenders under Certain Circumstances.
The Borrower shall be permitted to replace any Lender which (a) is subject to claims for additional payments under Section 4.1 or Section 4.2, (b) requires the Borrower to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts for the account of such Lender pursuant to Section 4.5, (c) cannot maintain its LIBOR Loans at a suitable Lending Installation pursuant to Section 4.6, (d) becomes a Defaulting Lender or (e) has failed to consent to a proposed amendment, waiver or modification that under Section 9.2 requires the consent of all the Lenders (or all the affected Lenders) and with respect to which the Required Lenders or the Required Facility Lenders, as applicable, shall have granted their consent, with a replacement bank or other financial institution; provided that (i) such replacement eliminates the circumstances giving rise to such replacement right and does not conflict with any applicable legal or regulatory requirements affecting the remaining Lenders, (ii) no Default or (after notice thereof to Borrower) no Unmatured Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such replacement, (iii) the replacement bank or institution shall purchase, at par, all Loans and other amounts owing to such replaced Lender prior to the date of replacement, (iv) the Borrower shall be liable to such replaced Lender under Sections 4.4 and 4.6 if any LIBOR Loan owing to such replaced Lender shall be prepaid (or purchased) other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto, (v) the replacement bank or institution, if not already a Lender, and the terms and conditions of such replacement, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (vi) the replaced Lender shall be obligated to make such replacement in accordance with the provisions of Section 13.3 (provided that the Borrower shall be obligated to pay the processing fee referred to therein), (vii) until such time as such replacement shall be consummated, the Borrower shall continue to pay all amounts payable hereunder without setoff, deduction, counterclaim or withholding and (viii) any such replacement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights which the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender shall have against the replaced Lender.

With respect to each Project identified from time to time as an Unencumbered Asset, except to the extent disclosed in writing to the Lenders and approved by the Required Lenders (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), the Borrower hereby represents and warrants as follows except to the extent the failure of such representation and warranty to be true would not materially adversely affect the use and operation of such Project for its intended use or its marketability or value:
6.20.1    No portion of any improvement on the Unencumbered Asset is located in an area identified by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development or any successor thereto as an area having special flood hazards pursuant to the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 or the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended, or any successor law, or, if located within any such area, the Borrower has obtained and will maintain the insurance prescribed in Section 7.6 hereof.

-71-




affecting the Unencumbered Asset except to the extent such items are being contested in good faith and as to which adequate reserves have been provided.
A breach of any of the representations and warranties contained in this Section 6.20 with respect to a Project shall disqualify such Project from being an Unencumbered Asset for so long as such breach continues (unless otherwise approved by the Required Lenders) but shall not constitute a Default (unless the elimination of such Property as an Unencumbered Asset and the failure to designate a replacement Unencumbered Asset or otherwise cure such breach in accordance with this Agreement results in a Default under one of the other provisions of this Agreement).
6.21.    Plan Assets; Prohibited Transactions. Neither the Borrower, any Subsidiary nor any member of the Controlled Group maintains any Plan. The Borrower is not an entity deemed to hold “plan assets” within the meaning of 29 C.F.R. § 2510.3-101 of an employee benefit plan (as defined in Section 3(3) of ERISA) which is subject to Title I of ERISA or any plan (within the meaning of Section 4975 of the Code), and neither the execution of this Agreement nor the making of Credit Extensions hereunder gives rise to a prohibited transaction within the meaning of Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code.

It is understood that (i) any information obtained by the Administrative Agent or any Lender in any visit or inspection pursuant to this shall be subject to the confidentiality requirements herein and (ii) so long as no Default or Unmatured Default exists, the Lenders will coordinate their visits through the Administrative Agent with a view to preventing the visits provided for by this Section from becoming unreasonably burdensome to the General Partner, Borrower and their Subsidiaries.
7.10.    Maintenance of Status. The General Partner shall at all times (i) remain a corporation listed and in good standing on the New York Stock Exchange, and (ii) maintain its status as a real estate investment trust in compliance with all applicable provisions of the Code.
7.11.    Dividends. The General Partner and its Subsidiaries shall be permitted to declare and pay dividends on their Capital Stock from time to time in amounts determined by the General Partner, provided, however, that if a Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower shall only be permitted to make distributions to its partners in amounts so that the pro rata share of such distributions received by the General Partner are no more that than the minimum amounts needed for the General Partner to make distributions to its shareholders necessary to maintain the General Partner’s tax status as a real estate investment trust, and the General Partner shall only be permitted to make distributions to its shareholders in the minimum amounts necessary to maintain the General Partner’s Tax status as a real estate investment trust.
7.12.    Merger; Sale of Assets. (a) The General Partner and the Borrower will not, nor will they permit any of their Subsidiaries to, enter into any merger, consolidation, reorganization or liquidation or transfer or otherwise dispose of all or a Substantial Portion of their Property, except for such transactions that occur between the General Partner, the Borrower and/or the Wholly‑Owned Subsidiaries of the Borrower or the General Partner, provided, however, the General Partner or the Borrower may merge with or acquire other companies as partnerships so long as:

-76-




(i)    after giving effect to such merger or acquisition, no provision of this Agreement will have been violated; and
(ii)    the General Partner or the Borrower will be the surviving entity.
The Borrower will notify all of the Lenders of all material acquisitions, dispositions, mergers or asset purchases regardless of whether or not the Required Lenders must first give their written consent.
(b)    The General Partner and the Borrower will not, and will not permit any of their Subsidiaries to, sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any Property unless after giving effect thereto no Default or Unmatured Default exists or would exist; provided that the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders written notice not less than five (5) Business Days prior to a sale, transfer or other disposition of any Unencumbered Assets, in a single transaction or series of related transactions, for consideration in excess of $500,000,000. In addition, simultaneously with delivery of any such notice, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of the General Partner’s and the Borrower’s chief financial officers or chief accounting officers certifying that the Borrower is in compliance in all material respects with this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and would be in compliance with the financial covenants set forth in Section 7.20 on a pro-forma basis using the most recent quarterly financial statements then available and after giving effect to the proposed transaction (or will be after making the required prepayments described in the next paragraph), along with a certification that the Borrower has no knowledge of any facts or circumstances that would make any such information inaccurate, incomplete or otherwise misleading in any material respect.
To the extent such proposed transaction would result in a failure to comply with the covenants set forth herein, the Borrower shall apply the proceeds of such transaction (together with such additional amounts as may be required), to prepay the Obligations in an amount, as determined by the Administrative Agent, equal to that which would be required to reduce the Obligations so that Borrower will be in compliance with the covenants set forth herein upon the consummation of the contemplated transaction. Such prepayments shall be applied to either the Revolving Credit Facility or the Term Loan Facility as directed by the Borrower; provided, however, that if the Borrower fails to give such direction, such prepayments shall first be applied to the Revolving Credit Facility and then to the Term Loan Facility if such prepayment amounts are needed for the Borrower to remain in compliance with this Agreement. Amounts so prepaid shall be applied to the Obligations in accordance with Section 2.23.
7.13.    [Reserved].
7.14.    [Reserved].

(iv)    Liens imposed by law, such as carriers’, warehousemen’s and mechanics’ liens and other similar liens arising in the ordinary course of business which secure payment of obligations not more than ninety (90) days past due or which are being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which adequate reserves shall have been set aside on its books;
(v)    Liens arising out of pledges or deposits under worker’s compensation laws, unemployment insurance, old age pensions, or other social security or retirement benefits, or similar legislation;

(vii)    Liens existing on the date hereof and described in Schedule 2 hereto;
(viii)    Liens arising in connection with any Indebtedness that does not result in a Default under Section 7.20 hereunder to the extent such Liens will not result in a violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement;
(ix)    Liens in favor of the Borrower, the General Partner or any Wholly-Owned Subsidiary granted by the Borrower, the General Partner or any Subsidiary in order to secure any intercompany obligations;

-78-




(xiii)    Liens not otherwise permitted pursuant to the preceding clauses (i) through (x) on Property (other than with respect to a Project) so long as same do not secure obligations (including Indebtedness) in excess of $5,000,000 in the aggregate at any time outstanding for the Borrower, the General Partners and the Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.
Liens permitted pursuant to this Section 7.15 shall be deemed to be “Permitted Liens”.
7.16.    Affiliates. The General Partner and the Borrower will not, nor will they permit any of their Subsidiaries to, enter into any transaction (including, without limitation, the purchase or sale of any Property or service) with, or make any payment or transfer to, any Affiliate except in the ordinary course of business and pursuant to the reasonable requirements of the General Partner’s, the Borrower’s or such Subsidiary’s business and upon fair and reasonable terms no less favorable to the General Partner, the Borrower or such Subsidiary than the General Partner, the Borrower or such Subsidiary would obtain in a comparable arms‑length transaction.
7.17.    Interest Rate Hedging. The General Partner and the Borrower will not enter into or remain liable upon, nor will they permit any Subsidiary to enter into or remain liable upon, any agreements, devices or arrangements designed to protect at least one of the parties thereto from the fluctuations of interest rates, exchange rates or forward rates applicable to such party’s assets, liabilities or exchange transactions, including, but not limited to, interest rate exchange agreements, forward currency exchange agreements, interest rate cap or collar protection agreements, forward rate currency or interest rate options unless such agreement, device or arrangement was entered into by the General Partner, the Borrower or any such Subsidiary in the ordinary course of its business for the purpose of hedging interest rate risk to the General Partner or the Borrower or any Subsidiary.

(a) The Borrower will cause any Subsidiary which (i) owns or ground leases an Unencumbered Asset and (ii) is liable for any Indebtedness (including any guarantees of debt of another person) to enter into a Subsidiary Guaranty, if the Borrower desires that the Project owned by such Subsidiary qualify as an Unencumbered Asset and be included in the calculation of the financial covenant in Section 7.20(iii), and will also deliver to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Lenders (concurrently with the inclusion of any Project as an Unencumbered Asset) the following items:
(i)    a Subsidiary Guaranty, or a joinder agreement in respect of any existing Subsidiary Guaranty;
(ii)    a certificate signed by the President, a Vice President, or a chief financial officer or chief accounting officer of the Borrower making representations and warranties to the effect of those contained in Section 6.1, Section 6.2 and Section 6.3, with respect to such Subsidiary Guarantor and the Subsidiary Guaranty and in Section 6.20 with respect to the Unencumbered Assets owned by such Subsidiary Guarantor, as applicable; and
(iii)    an opinion of counsel addressed to each Lender and reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, to the effect that the Subsidiary Guaranty

(b)    Other than during the continuance of a Default or an Unmatured Default, the Subsidiary Guaranty of any Subsidiary Guarantor shall be released without the further consent of the Lenders if and when (i) a Project is sold or transferred by a Subsidiary Guarantor and all of the Projects owned by such Subsidiary Guarantor shall thereby cease (not thereby creating a Default or an Unmatured Default) to be Unencumbered Assets or (ii) such Subsidiary becomes an Unencumbered Property Subsidiary and is therefore no longer required to be a Subsidiary Guarantor in order for the Projects owned by such Subsidiary to qualify as Unencumbered Assets, provided the foregoing shall never permit the release of the Guaranty of the General Partner. At the request and expense of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall execute and deliver an instrument confirming such release.

(vii)    defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Administrative Agent and each Lender, and their respective employees, agents, officers and directors, from and against any claims, demands, penalties, fines, liabilities, settlements, damages, costs and expenses of whatever kind or nature known or unknown, contingent or otherwise, arising out of, or in any way relating to the violation of, noncompliance with or liability under any Environmental Laws applicable to the operations of the General Partner, the Borrower, their Subsidiaries or the Projects, or any orders, requirements or demands of Governmental Authorities related thereto, including, without limitation, attorney’s and consultant’s fees, investigation and laboratory fees, response costs, court costs and litigation expenses, except to the extent that any of the foregoing arise out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) of the party seeking indemnification therefor.

ACCELERATION, WAIVERS, AMENDMENTS AND REMEDIES
9.1.    Acceleration. If any Default described in Section 8.7 or 8.8 occurs with respect to the Borrower, the Commitments and all other obligations of the Lenders to make Loans and of the Issuing Bank to issue Facility Letters of Credit hereunder shall automatically terminate and the Obligations shall immediately become due and payable without any election or action on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender and without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kind, all of which the Borrower hereby expressly waives. If any other Default occurs, the Administrative Agent may, and will if directed by the Required Lenders, terminate or suspend the Commitments and all other obligations of the Lenders to make Loans hereunder and to issue Facility Letters of Credit, whereupon (in the case of termination) the Commitments shall terminate, or declare the Obligations to be due and payable, or both, whereupon the Obligations shall become immediately due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kind, all of which the Borrower hereby expressly waives.
In addition to the foregoing, following the occurrence of a Default and so long as any Facility Letter of Credit has not been fully drawn and has not been cancelled or expired by its terms, upon demand by the Administrative Agent (which Administrative Agent agrees to make if requested to by the applicable Required Lenders) and automatically upon the occurrence of any Default described in Section 8.7 or 8.8 the Borrower shall deposit in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account cash in an amount equal to 100% of the aggregate undrawn face amount of all outstanding Facility Letters of Credit and all fees and other amounts due or which may become due with respect thereto. The funds in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account shall be subject to the provisions of Section 3.14 hereof.
If, within thirty (30) days after acceleration of the maturity of the Obligations or termination of the obligations of the Lenders to make Loans hereunder or to issue Facility Letters of Credit as a result of any Default (other than any Default as described in Section 8.7 or 8.8 with respect to the Borrower) and before any judgment or decree for the payment of the Obligations shall have been

-85-




obtained or entered, the Required Lenders (in their sole discretion) shall so direct, the Administrative Agent shall, by notice to the Borrower, rescind and annul such acceleration and/or termination.
9.2.    Amendments. Subject to the provisions of this Article IX, the Required Lenders (or the Administrative Agent with the consent in writing of the Required Lenders), the Borrower and the General Partner may enter into written agreements supplemental hereto for the purpose of amending or modifying any provisions to the Loan Documents or changing in any manner the rights of the Lenders or the Borrower hereunder or waiving any Default or any provision hereunder (and, if the rights or duties of only a specific Facility are affected thereby or if such amendment or waiver adversely affects the rights of a specific Facility in a manner that is different than such amendment or waiver affects the other Facility, the Required Facility Lenders for such Facility); provided, however, that no such supplemental agreement shall:
(xxvii)    Extend a Termination Date (except as expressly provided herein) or forgive all or any portion of the principal amount of any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or accrued interest thereon or the Facility Fee or Facility Letter of Credit Fee, reduce the Applicable Margins on the underlying interest rate options or otherwise modify or add to such Applicable Margins or interest rate options, or extend the time of payment of any of the Obligations, without the consent of all Lenders affected thereby.
(xxviii)    Release the General Partner from the Guaranty, or materially modify the Guaranty or waive a material provision of the Guaranty, without the consent of all Lenders.
(xxix)    Change the percentage specified in the definition of Required Lenders or Required Facility Lenders, without the consent of all Lenders.
(xxx)    (x) Increase the amount of the Aggregate Revolving Credit Commitment to an amount in excess of $1,600,000,000 or the aggregate Term Loans made under this Agreement to an amount in excess of $350,000,000, without the consent of all Lenders; or (y) increase the Commitment of any Lender without the consent of such Lender.
(xxxi)    Permit the Borrower to assign or allow another Person to assume its rights under this Agreement, without the consent of all Lenders.
(xxxii)    Amend this Section 9.2, without the consent of all Lenders.
(xxxiii)    Amend Section 2.23 such that the order of priority of payments is changed or payments that are now required to be applied in accordance with the Percentages or Funded Percentages of the Lenders shall be applied in any other manner, without the consent of all Lenders.
No amendment of any provision of this Agreement relating to the Administrative Agent shall be effective without the written consent of the Administrative Agent, no amendment of any provision relating to the Issuing Bank shall be effective without the consent of the Issuing Bank, and no amendment increasing the Commitment of any Lender shall be effective without the written consent

-86-




of such Lender. No amendment of Section 2.24 shall be effective without the written consent of the Administrative Agent, the Swing Line Lender and the Issuing Bank.
Notwithstanding the foregoing: (1) no amendment, waiver, or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by the Designating Lender on behalf of its respective Designated Lender affected thereby, (a) subject such Designated Lender to any additional obligations, (b) reduce the principal of, interest on, or the amounts due with respect to, the Competitive Bid Loan Note made payable to such Designated Lender, (c) postpone any date fixed for any payment of principal of, or interest on, or other amounts due with respect to, the Competitive Bid Note made payable to such Designated Lender, or (d) amend the definition of Required Lenders hereunder in a manner which adversely affects the rights of such Designated Lender.
9.3.    Preservation of Rights. No delay or omission of the Lenders or the Administrative Agent to exercise any right under the Loan Documents shall impair such right or be construed to be a waiver of any Default or an acquiescence therein, and the making of a Loan notwithstanding the existence of a Default or the inability of the Borrower to satisfy the conditions precedent to such Loan shall not constitute any waiver or acquiescence. Any single or partial exercise of any such right shall not preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, and no waiver, amendment or other variation of the terms, conditions or provisions of the Loan Documents whatsoever shall be valid unless in writing signed by the Lenders required pursuant to Section 9.2, and then only to the extent in such writing specifically set forth. All remedies contained in the Loan Documents or by law afforded shall be cumulative and all shall be available to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders until the Obligations have been paid in full.

This Agreement shall not be construed so as to confer any right or benefit upon any Person other than the parties to this Agreement and their respective successors and assigns.
10.6.    Expenses; Indemnification. The Borrower shall reimburse the Indemnified Parties on demand for any reasonable costs and reasonable out‑of‑pocket expenses (including, without limitation, all reasonable fees for consultants and reasonable fees and expenses for attorneys for the Indemnified Parties, which attorneys may be employees of the Indemnified Parties) paid or incurred by the Indemnified Parties (whether in their capacity as arrangers, or, in the case of JPMCB in its capacity as Administrative Agent) in connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution, delivery, review, amendment, modification, and administration of the Loan Documents. The Borrower also agrees to reimburse the Indemnified Parties, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders for any reasonable costs and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including, without limitation, all reasonable fees and expenses for attorneys for the Indemnified Parties, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders, which attorneys may be employees of the Indemnified Parties, the Issuing Bank or the Lenders) paid or incurred by the Indemnified Parties (whether in their capacity as arrangers, or, in the case of JPMCB, in its capacity as Administrative Agent), the Issuing Bank or any Lender in connection with the collection and enforcement of the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, any workout). The Borrower further agrees to indemnify the Indemnified Parties, the Issuing Bank and each Lender and their directors, officers, employees, agents, attorneys and professional advisors (each such Person, an “Indemnitee”) against all losses, claims, damages, penalties, judgments, liabilities and reasonable expenses (including, without limitation, all expenses of litigation or preparation therefor whether or not such entity is a party thereto) which any of them may pay or incur arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, the Projects, the Loans and the other transactions contemplated hereby or the direct or indirect application or proposed application of the proceeds of any Credit Extension hereunder, any actual or alleged presence or release of materials of Environmental Concern on or from any property owned or operated by the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory, whether brought by a third party or by the Borrower or an Affiliate of the Borrower; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, penalties, judgments, liabilities or related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and non-appealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee. To the extent permitted by applicable law, no party hereto shall assert, and each such party hereby waives, any claim against any other party, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the transactions contemplated hereby, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof, except, in the case of the Borrower, to the extent otherwise subject to indemnification pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth above. No Indemnitee shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other

-88-




materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, unless such damages are the result of such Indemnitee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision). The obligations of the Borrower under this Section 10.7 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
10.7.    Numbers of Documents. All statements, notices, closing documents, and requests hereunder shall be furnished to the Administrative Agent with sufficient counterparts so that the Administrative Agent may furnish one to each of the Lenders.
10.8.    Accounting. All computations of financial ratios and covenants to be made in this Agreement (including in the definitions) shall be made without giving effect to required GAAP adjustments regarding treatment of non-cash interest on Indebtedness that is convertible to Equity Interests. Except as provided to the contrary herein, all accounting terms used herein shall be interpreted and all accounting determinations hereunder shall be made in accordance with GAAP in a manner consistent with that used in preparing the financial statements referred to in Section 6.4. If at any time any change in GAAP would affect the computation of any financial ratio or requirement set forth in any Loan Document, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders shall so request, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Borrower shall negotiate in good faith to amend such ratio or requirement to preserve the original intent thereof in light of such change in GAAP (subject to the approval of the Required Lenders), provided that, until so amended, such ratio or requirement shall continue to be computed in accordance with GAAP prior to such change therein. If at any time any change in reporting on the consolidated financial statements of the General Partner, the Borrower and their Subsidiaries would affect the computation of any financial ratio or requirement set forth in any Loan Document, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders shall so request, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Borrower shall negotiate in good faith to amend such ratio or requirement to preserve the original intent thereof in light of such change in reporting (subject to the approval of the Required Lenders), provided that, until so amended, such ratio or requirement shall continue to be computed in accordance with the reporting prior to such change therein
10.9.    Severability of Provisions. Any provision in any Loan Document that is held to be inoperative, unenforceable, or invalid in any jurisdiction shall, as to that jurisdiction, be inoperative, unenforceable, or invalid without affecting the remaining provisions in that jurisdiction or the operation, enforceability, or validity of that provision in any other jurisdiction, and to this end the provisions of all Loan Documents are declared to be severable.
10.10.    Nonliability of Lenders. The relationship between the General Partner and the Borrower, on the one hand, and the Lenders, the Issuing Bank, the Arrangers and the Administrative Agent, on the other, shall be solely that of borrower and lender. Neither the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers, the Issuing Bank nor any Lender shall have any fiduciary responsibilities to the General Partner and the Borrower. Neither the Administrative Agent, the Arrangers, the Issuing Bank, nor any Lender undertakes any responsibility to the Borrower to review or inform the Borrower of any matter in connection with any phase of the Borrower’s business or operations.

-89-




10.11.    Publicity. The Lenders shall have the right to do a tombstone publicizing the transaction contemplated hereby without the consent of the Borrower or the General Partner.
10.12.    CHOICE OF LAW. THE LOAN DOCUMENTS (OTHER THAN THOSE CONTAINING A CONTRARY EXPRESS CHOICE OF LAW PROVISION) SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, BUT GIVING EFFECT TO FEDERAL LAWS APPLICABLE TO NATIONAL BANKS.
10.13.    CONSENT TO JURISDICTION. THE GENERAL PARTNER AND THE BORROWER EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK SITTING IN NEW YORK COUNTY AND OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT OF THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK AND ANY APPELLATE COURT FROM ANY THEREOF, IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR FOR RECOGNITION OR ENFORCEMENT OF ANY JUDGMENT AND THE GENERAL PARTNER AND THE BORROWER EACH HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AGREES THAT ALL CLAIMS IN RESPECT OF SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE HEARD AND DETERMINED IN ANY SUCH COURT AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY OBJECTION IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE AS TO THE VENUE OF ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT IN SUCH A COURT OR THAT SUCH COURT IS AN INCONVENIENT FORUM. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO AGREES THAT A FINAL JUDGMENT IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE AND MAY BE ENFORCED IN OTHER JURISDICTIONS BY SUIT ON THE JUDGMENT OR IN ANY OTHER MANNER PROVIDED BY LAW. NOTHING HEREIN SHALL LIMIT THE RIGHT OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT OR ANY LENDER TO BRING PROCEEDINGS AGAINST THE GENERAL PARTNER OR THE BORROWER IN THE COURTS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION. ANY JUDICIAL PROCEEDING BY THE GENERAL PARTNER OR THE BORROWER AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT OR ANY LENDER OR ANY AFFILIATE OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT OR ANY LENDER INVOLVING, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, ANY MATTER IN ANY WAY ARISING OUT OF, RELATED TO, OR CONNECTED WITH ANY LOAN DOCUMENT SHALL BE BROUGHT ONLY IN SUCH COURTS.
10.14.    WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. THE GENERAL PARTNER, THE BORROWER, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND EACH LENDER HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY JUDICIAL PROCEEDING INVOLVING, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, ANY MATTER (WHETHER SOUNDING IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE) IN ANY WAY ARISING OUT OF, RELATED TO, OR CONNECTED WITH ANY LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE RELATIONSHIP ESTABLISHED THEREUNDER OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED THEREUNDER.
10.15.    Agent Responsibilities. Borrower, the Administrative Agent and each Lender acknowledges and agrees that the obligations of the Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Managing Agents, and the Co-Agents (collectively, the “Other Agents”) hereunder shall be limited to those obligations that are expressly set forth herein, if any, or in any other written agreement

-90-




with such parties, and the Other Agents shall not be required to take any other action or assume any liability except as may be required in their capacity as a Lender hereunder. Borrower, the Administrative Agent and each Lender agrees that the indemnifications set forth herein for the benefit of the Administrative Agent shall also run to the benefit of each Other Agent to the extent such Other Agent incurs any loss, cost or damage arising from its agency capacity hereunder.
10.16.    USA PATRIOT ACT NOTIFICATION. The following notification is provided to Borrower and the Guarantor pursuant to Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act of 2001, 31 U.S.C. Section 5318:
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT. To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person or entity that opens an account, including any deposit account, treasury management account, loan, other extension of credit, or other financial services product. What this means for the Borrower and the Guarantor: When the Borrower or the Guarantor opens an account, if the Borrower or the Guarantor is an individual, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders will ask for the Borrower’s or the Guarantor’s, as applicable, name, residential address, tax identification number, date of birth, and other information that will allow the Administrative Agent and the Lenders to identify the Borrower or the Guarantor, and, if the Borrower or the Guarantor is not an individual, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders will ask for the Borrower’s or the Guarantor’s, as applicable, name, tax identification number, business address, and other information that will allow the Administrative Agent and the Lenders to identify the Borrower or the Guarantor. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders may also ask, if the Borrower or the Guarantor is an individual, to see the Borrower’s or the Guarantor’s driver’s license or other identifying documents, and, if the Borrower or the Guarantor is not an individual, to see the Borrower’s or the Guarantor’s legal organizational documents or other identifying documents.
10.17.    Service of Process. Each party hereto irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 14.1. Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party hereto to serve process in any other manner permitted by applicable law.
ARTICLE XI    

THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND AGREEMENTS AMONG LENDERS
11.1.    Administrative Agent. JPMCB is hereby appointed by each of the Lenders as its agent (herein referred to as the “Agent”) hereunder and under each other Loan Document, and each of the Lenders irrevocably authorizes the Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise the rights and duties expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents. The Agent agrees to act as such agent upon the express conditions contained in this Article XI. Notwithstanding the use of the defined term “Agent,” it is expressly understood and agreed that the Agent shall not have any fiduciary responsibilities to any Lender by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document and that the Agent is merely acting as the agent of the Lenders with only those duties as are expressly set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. In its capacity as the Lenders’ agent, the Agent (i) does not hereby assume any fiduciary duties to any of the Lenders, (ii) is a

-91-




“representative” of the Lenders within the meaning of the term “secured party” as defined in the New York Uniform Commercial Code and (iii) is acting as an independent contractor, the rights and duties of which are limited to those expressly set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Each of the Lenders hereby agrees to assert with respect to the Loan Documents and administration of the Loan, no claim against the Agent on any agency theory or any other theory of liability for breach of fiduciary duty, all of which claims each Lender hereby waives.
11.2.    Powers. The Administrative Agent shall have and may exercise such powers under the Loan Documents as are specifically delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of each thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The Administrative Agent shall have no implied duties to the Lenders, or any obligation to the Lenders to take any action thereunder except any action specifically provided by the Loan Documents to be taken by the Administrative Agent. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise in writing as directed by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 9.2), and (b) except as expressly set forth herein, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.
11.3.    General Immunity. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable to the Borrower, the Lenders or any Lender for any action lawfully taken or omitted to be taken by it or them hereunder or under any other Loan Document or in connection herewith or therewith except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision). The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 9.2).
11.4.    No Responsibility for Loans, Recitals, Etc. Except where the failure to do so constitutes gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision), neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into, or verify (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in connection with any Loan Document or any borrowing hereunder or the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or in connection herewith; (ii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants or agreements of any obligor under any Loan Document, including, without limitation, any agreement by an obligor to furnish information directly to each Lender; (iii) the satisfaction of any condition specified in Article V, except to confirm receipt of items required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent; (iv) the validity, effectiveness or genuineness of any Loan Document or any other instrument or writing furnished in connection therewith; or (v) the value, sufficiency, creation, perfection or priority of any interest in any collateral security.

-92-




11.5.    Action on Instructions of Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder and under any other Loan Document in accordance with written instructions signed by the Required Lenders or, where consent of all Lenders is required, all Lenders, and such instructions and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all of the Lenders and on all holders of Notes. The Administrative Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action hereunder and under any other Loan Document unless it shall first be indemnified to its reasonable satisfaction by the Lenders pro rata against any and all liability, cost and expense that it may incur by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action.
11.6.    Employment of Agents and Counsel. The Administrative Agent may execute any of its duties as Administrative Agent hereunder and under any other Loan Document by or through employees, agents, and attorneys-in-fact and so long as it exercises reasonable care in the selection of such parties, the Administrative Agent shall not be answerable to the Lenders, except as to money or securities received by it or its authorized agents, for the default or misconduct of any such parties. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to the agency hereby created and its duties hereunder and under any other Loan Document.
11.7.    Reliance on Documents; Counsel. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any Note, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, telegram, facsimile, telex, electronic mail message, statement, paper or document believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by the proper person or persons, and, in respect to legal matters, upon the opinion of counsel selected by the Administrative Agent, which counsel may be employees of the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. For purposes of determining compliance with the conditions specified in Section 5.1, each Lender that has signed this Agreement shall be deemed to have consented to, approved or accepted or to be satisfied with, each document or other matter required thereunder to be consented to or approved by or acceptable or satisfactory to a Lender unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from such Lender prior to the applicable date stating in reasonable detail its objection thereto.
11.8.    Administrative Agent’s Reimbursement and Indemnification. The Lenders agree to reimburse and indemnify the Administrative Agent ratably in proportion to their respective Commitments (determined at the time such reimbursement or indemnity is sought) for any reasonable amounts not reimbursed by the Borrower or Guarantor for which the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as such) is entitled to reimbursement or indemnification by the Borrower or Guarantor under the Loan Documents including reasonable out-of-pocket expenses in connection with the preparation, execution, and delivery of the Loan Documents, (ii) for any other reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders, in connection with the administration and enforcement of the Loan Documents and (iii) for any liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of the Loan Documents or any other document delivered in connection therewith or the transactions contemplated thereby, or the

-93-




enforcement of any of the terms thereof or of any such other documents, provided that no Lender shall be liable for (i) any of the foregoing to the extent they arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision), or (ii) any costs or expenses of the Administrative Agent’s in-house legal staff and personnel. The obligations of the Lenders under this Section 11.8 shall survive payment of the Obligations and termination of this Agreement, and shall not be reduced by the designation of a Designated Lender to fund Competitive Bid Loans on behalf of a Revolving Credit Lender, provided that each Designated Lender shall be jointly and severally liable with the Designating Lender for the Designating Lender’s share (as hereinafter determined) of the amounts due from such Designating Lender. The Designated Lender’s share of amounts due shall be equal to such amount due multiplied by a fraction whose numerator is the amount funded by the Designated Lender (but in no event more than the amount of Designating Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment) and whose denominator is the amount of the Designating Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment.
11.9.    Rights as a Lender. In the event the Administrative Agent is a Lender, the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers and the same duties and obligations hereunder and under any other Loan Document as any Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, at any time when the Administrative Agent is a Lender, unless the context otherwise indicates, include the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity. The Administrative Agent may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of trust, debt, equity or other transaction, in addition to those contemplated by this Agreement or any other Loan Document, with the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries in which the Borrower or such Subsidiary is not restricted hereby from engaging with any other Person.
11.10.    Lender Credit Decision. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on the financial statements prepared by the Borrower and such other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Except for any notice, report, document or other information expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent or Arrangers hereunder, neither the Administrative Agent nor the Arrangers shall have any duty or responsibility (either initially or on a continuing basis) to provide any Lender with any notice, report, document, credit information or other information concerning the affairs, financial condition or business of the Borrower or any of its Affiliates that may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or Arrangers (whether or not in their respective capacity as Administrative Agent or Arrangers) or any of their Affiliates.
11.11.    Successor Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower, and the Administrative Agent shall be deemed to have automatically resigned if it is no longer a Lender, such resignation in either

-94-




case to be effective upon the appointment of a successor Administrative Agent or, if no successor Administrative Agent has been appointed, forty-five (45) days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its intention to resign or ceases to be a Lender, as the case may be. The Administrative Agent may be removed at any time for its gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) by written notice received by the Administrative Agent from the Required Lenders, such removal to be effective on the date specified by the Required Lenders. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint, on behalf of the Borrower and the Lenders, a successor Administrative Agent. If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders within thirty (30) days after a resigning Administrative Agent’s giving notice of its intention to resign, then the resigning Administrative Agent may appoint, on behalf of the Borrower and the Lenders, a successor Administrative Agent. If the Administrative Agent has resigned or been removed and no successor Administrative Agent has been appointed within forty-five (45) days, the Lenders shall perform all the duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder and the Borrower shall make all payments in respect of the Obligations to the applicable Lenders and for all other purposes shall deal directly with the Lenders. No successor Administrative Agent shall be deemed to be appointed hereunder until such successor Administrative Agent has accepted the appointment. Any such successor Administrative Agent shall be a commercial bank (or a subsidiary thereof) having capital and retained earnings of at least $500,000,000, except that if the successor Administrative Agent is a subsidiary of a bank, such capital and retained earnings requirement shall apply only to the parent bank. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the resigning or removed Administrative Agent. Upon the effectiveness of the resignation or removal of the Administrative Agent, the resigning or removed Administrative Agent and the successor Administrative Agent shall pro rate any agency fees, and the resigning or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations thereafter arising hereunder and under the Loan Documents. After the effectiveness of the resignation or removal of an Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Article XI shall continue in effect for the benefit of such Administrative Agent in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.
11.12.    Notice of Defaults. The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of any Default or Unmatured Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower or a Lender. If a Lender becomes aware of a Default or Unmatured Default, such Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent of such fact provided that the failure to give such notice shall not create liability on the part of a Lender. Upon receipt of such notice that a Default or Unmatured Default has occurred, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each of the Lenders of such fact.
11.13.    Copies of Documents. Within fifteen (15) Business Days after a request by a Lender to the Administrative Agent for documents furnished to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall provide copies of such documents to such Lender.

-95-




11.14.    No Other Duties, Etc.. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, none of the bookrunners, Arrangers or other agents listed on the cover page hereof shall have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent, a Lender or an Issuing Bank hereunder.

ARTICLE XII    

SETOFF; RATABLE PAYMENTS
12.1.    Setoff. In addition to, and without limitation of, any rights of the Lenders under applicable law, if the Borrower becomes insolvent, however evidenced, or any Default occurs, any and all deposits (including all account balances, whether provisional or final and whether or not collected or available) and any other Indebtedness at any time held or owing by any Lender or any of its Affiliates to or for the credit or account of the Borrower may be offset and applied toward the payment of the Obligations owing to such Lender, whether or not the Obligations, or any part hereof, shall then be due.
12.2.    Ratable Payments. If any Lender, whether by setoff or otherwise, has payment made to it upon its Loans (other than payments received pursuant to Sections 4.1, 4.2 or 4.4) in a greater proportion than that received by any other Lender under the same Facility, such Lender agrees, promptly upon demand, to purchase a portion of the Loans held by the other Lenders under such Facility so that after such purchase each Lender will hold its ratable proportion of Loans under such Facility. If any Lender, whether in connection with setoff or amounts which might be subject to setoff or otherwise, receives collateral or other protection for its Obligations or such amounts which may be subject to setoff, such Lender agrees, promptly upon demand, to take such action necessary such that all Lenders share in the benefits of such collateral ratably in proportion to their Loans. In case any such payment is disturbed by legal process, or otherwise, appropriate further adjustments shall be made.
ARTICLE XIII    

BENEFIT OF AGREEMENT; ASSIGNMENTS; PARTICIPATIONS
13.1. Benefit of Agreement.     The terms and provisions of the Loan Documents shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Borrower and the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that (i) the Borrower shall not have the right to assign its rights or obligations under the Loan Documents without the prior written consent of each Lender, (ii) any assignment by any Lender must be made in compliance with Section 13.3, and (iii) any transfer by Participation must be made in compliance with Section 13.2. Any attempted assignment or transfer by any party not made in compliance with this Section 13.1 shall be null and void, unless such attempted assignment or transfer is treated as a participation in accordance with Section 13.2. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that clause (ii) of this Section 13.1 relates only to absolute assignments and this Section 13.1 does not prohibit assignments creating security interests, including, without limitation, (x) any pledge or assignment by any Lender of all or any portion of

-96-




its rights under this Agreement and any Note, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or other central reserve bank having jurisdiction over such Lender or (y) in the case of a Lender which is a Fund, any pledge or assignment of all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement and any Note to its trustee in support of its obligations to its trustee; provided, however, that no such pledge or assignment creating a security interest shall release the transferor Lender from its obligations hereunder unless and until the parties thereto have complied with the provisions of Section 13.3. The Administrative Agent may treat the Person which made any Loan or which holds any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes hereof unless and until such Person complies with Section 13.3; provided, however, that the Administrative Agent may in its discretion (but shall not be required to) follow instructions from the Person which made any Loan or which holds any Note to direct payments relating to such Loan or Note to another Person. Any assignee of the rights to any Loan or any Note agrees by acceptance of such assignment to be bound by all the terms and provisions of the Loan Documents. Any request, authority or consent of any Person, who at the time of making such request or giving such authority or consent is the owner of the rights to any Loan (whether or not a Note has been issued in evidence thereof), shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder or assignee of the rights to such Loan.
13.2.    Participations.
13.2.1    Permitted Participants; Effect. Any Lender may at any time, sell participating interests in any Outstanding Credit Exposure of such Lender, any Note held by such Lender, any Commitment of such Lender or any other interest of such Lender under the Loan Documents to any Person (other than the General Partner, the Borrower or any of their Affiliates or a natural person). Any Person to whom such a participating interest is sold is a “Participant”. In the event of any such sale by a Lender of participating interests to a Participant, such Lender’s obligations under the Loan Documents shall remain unchanged, such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, such Lender shall remain the holder of any such Note for all purposes under the Loan Documents, all amounts payable by the Borrower under this Agreement shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold such participating interests, and the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under the Loan Documents.
13.2.2    Voting Rights. Each Lender shall retain the sole right to approve, without the consent of any Participant, any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of the Loan Documents other than any amendment, modification or waiver with respect to any Loan or Commitment in which such Participant has an interest which forgives principal, interest or fees or reduces the interest rate or fees payable with respect to any such Loan or Commitment or postpones any date fixed for any regularly‑scheduled payment of principal of, or interest or fees on, any such Loan or Commitment or releases any guarantor of any such Loan or releases any substantial portion of collateral, if any, securing such Loan, or changes the definition of Required Lenders.
13.2.3    Benefit of Setoff. The General Partner and the Borrower each agrees that each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of setoff provided in Section 12.1 in

-97-




respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under the Loan Documents to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Lender under the Loan Documents, provided that each Lender shall retain the right of setoff provided in Section 12.1 with respect to the amount of participating interests sold to each Participant. The Lenders agree to share with each Participant, and each Participant, by exercising the right of setoff provided in Section 12.1, agrees to share with each Lender, any amount received pursuant to the exercise of its right of setoff, such amounts to be shared in accordance with Section 12.2 as if each Participant were a Lender.
13.2.4    Participant Register. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant's interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the "Participant Register"); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant's interest in any Commitments, Loans or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
13.3.    Assignments.
13.3.1    Permitted Assignments. Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more banks or other entities (other than the General Partner, the Borrower or any of their Affiliates or a natural person) (“Purchasers”) all or any part of its rights and obligations under the Loan Documents. Such assignment shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit H or in such other form as may be agreed to by the parties thereto. Each such assignment with respect to a Purchaser which is not a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund shall either be in an amount equal to the entire applicable Commitment and Loans of the assigning Lender or (unless each of the Borrower and the Agent otherwise consents) be in an aggregate amount not less than $5,000,000. The amount of the assignment shall be based on the Commitment or outstanding Loans (if the Commitment has been terminated) subject to the assignment, determined as of the date of such assignment or as of the “Trade Date,” if the “Trade Date” is specified in the assignment.
13.3.2    Effect; Effective Date. Upon (i) delivery to the Administrative Agent of a notice of assignment, substantially in the form attached as Exhibit I to Exhibit H hereto (a “Notice of Assignment”), together with any consents required by Section 13.3.3, and (ii) payment of a $3,500 fee to the Administrative Agent for processing such assignment (unless the assignment is to an affiliate of the Lender in which case no fee shall be charged), such

-98-




assignment shall become effective on the effective date specified in such Notice of Assignment. The Notice of Assignment shall contain a representation by the Purchaser to the effect that none of the consideration used to make the purchase of the Commitment and Outstanding Credit Exposure under the applicable assignment agreement are “plan assets” as defined under ERISA and that the rights and interests of the Purchaser in and under the Loan Documents will not be “plan assets” under ERISA. On and after the effective date of such assignment, such Purchaser shall for all purposes be a Lender party to this Agreement and any other Loan Document executed by the Lenders and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Lender under the Loan Documents, to the same extent as if it were an original party thereto, and the transferor Lender shall be released with respect to the Commitment and Outstanding Credit Exposure assigned to such Purchaser without any further consent or action by the Borrower, the other Lenders or the Administrative Agent. In the case of an assignment covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a Lender hereunder but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of, and subject to, those provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents which survive payment of the Obligations and termination of the applicable agreement. Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 13.3 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with Section 13.2. Upon the consummation of any assignment to a Purchaser pursuant to this Section 13.3.3, the transferor Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that replacement Notes are issued to such transferor Lender and new Notes or, as appropriate, replacement Notes, are issued to such Purchaser, in each case in principal amounts reflecting their Commitment, as adjusted pursuant to such assignment.
13.3.3    Consents. The consent of the Borrower shall be required prior to an assignment becoming effective unless the Purchaser is a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund, provided that the consent of the Borrower shall not be required if a Default has occurred and is continuing, and provided further that failure of the Borrower to explicitly approve or disapprove such assignment within such 10 Business Days of receipt of the Notice of Assignment shall be deemed to be approval of such assignment. The consent of the Administrative Agent shall be required prior to an assignment becoming effective unless (x) in the case of the Revolving Credit Facility, the Purchaser is a Lender (other than a Defaulting Lender) with a Revolving Credit Commitment immediately prior to giving effect to such assignment or (x) in the case of the Term Loan Facility, the Purchaser is a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund. The consent of the Issuing Bank and the Swing Line Lender shall also be required prior to any assignment under the Revolving Credit Facility becoming effective. Any consent required under this Section 13.3.3 shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
13.3.4    Register. The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices in New York, New York a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amounts of the Loans

-99-




owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
13.4.    Designation of Lender to Make Competitive Bid Loans. Any Revolving Credit Lender (each a “Designating Lender”) may at any time designate one or more Designated Lenders to fund Competitive Bid Loans which the Designating Lender is required to fund subject to the terms of this Section 13.4 and the provisions in Section 13.3 shall not apply to such designation. No Revolving Credit Lender shall be entitled to make more than two such designations. The parties to each such designation shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its acceptance, a Designation Agreement in the form of Exhibit I. Upon its receipt of an appropriately completed Designation Agreement executed by a Designating Lender and a Designee representing that it is a Designated Lender, the Administrative Agent will accept such Designation Agreement and give prompt notice thereof to the Borrower, whereupon, from and after the effective date specified in the Designation Agreement, the Designated Lender shall become a party to this Agreement with a right to make Competitive Bid Loans on behalf of its Designating Lender pursuant to Section 2.15 after the Borrower has accepted a Competitive Bid (or a portion thereof) of the Designating Lender. Each Designating Lender shall serve as the agent for the Designated Lender and shall on behalf of the Designated Lender give and receive all communications and notices and take all actions hereunder, including without limitation votes, approvals, waivers, consents and amendments under or relating to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents. Any such notice, communications, vote, approval, waiver, consent or amendment shall be signed by the Designating Lender as agent for the Designated Lender and shall not be signed by the Designated Lender. The Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may rely thereon without any requirement that the Designated Lender sign or acknowledge the same, and without any specific designation that the Designating Lender is signing in an agency capacity. The parties hereto agree not to institute or join any other person in instituting against any Designated Lender any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceeding, or other proceeding under any federal or state bankruptcy or similar law, for one year and a day after the Termination Date. This Section 13.4 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
13.5.    Dissemination of Information. The General Partner and the Borrower authorize each Lender to disclose any and all information in such Lender’s possession concerning the creditworthiness of the General Partner, the Borrower and their Subsidiaries to any Participant or Purchaser or any other Person acquiring an interest in the Loan Documents by operation of law (each a “Transferee”) and any prospective Transferee and any swap counterparty as prospective swap counterparty with whom a Lender has entered or is considering entering into a transaction to hedge such Lender’s credit risk in connection with this Facility.
13.6.    Tax Treatment. If any interest in any Loan Document is transferred to any Transferee which is organized under the laws of any jurisdiction other than the United States or any State

-100-




thereof, such Transferee shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such transfer, comply with the provisions of Section 2.22.
13.7.    Confidentiality. Each of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined below), except that Information may be disclosed (a) to the affiliates of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders and the respective directors, officers, employees, agents and attorneys of such Persons, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential), (b) to the extent required or requested by any regulatory authority purporting to have jurisdiction over such Persons described in clause (a) above, (c) to the extent required by Applicable Laws or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights hereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to the Borrower, the General Partner or any Subsidiary and its obligations, (g) with the consent of the Borrower, (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the Borrower, (i) to any rating agency when required by it in connection with rating the Borrower or the credit facility provided for herein, provided that prior to any disclosure, such rating agency shall undertake in writing to preserve the confidentiality of any confidential information relating to the Borrower received by it from the Administrative Agent or any Lender or (j) disclosure on a confidential basis to the CUSIP Service Bureau or any similar agency in connection with the issuance and monitoring of CUSIP numbers with respect to the Loans. For the purposes of this Section, “Information” means all information received from the Borrower, the General Partner or any Subsidiary relating to the Borrower, the General Partner or any Subsidiary or their businesses, other than any such information that is available to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender on a non-confidential basis prior to disclosure by the Borrower. In addition, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may disclose the existence of this Agreement and information about this Agreement to market data collectors, similar service providers to the lending industry and service providers to the agents and the Lenders in connection with the administration of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, and the Commitments.
