The execution, delivery and performance of this Amendment has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of each Borrower.

        3.    No Conflict; Governmental Consents.    The execution and delivery by each of the Borrowers of this Amendment, and performance by each of the Borrowers of the Credit Agreement as amended hereby, will not (a) violate any Requirement of Law or Contractual Obligation of such Loan Party in any respect that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, or (b) result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien (other than any Lien permitted by subsection 8.3 of the Credit Agreement) on any of its properties or revenues pursuant to any such Requirement of Law or Contractual Obligation.

        4.    Binding Obligation.    (a) This Amendment constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of each of the Borrowers, enforceable against each such Borrower in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable domestic or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law).

        (b)   Each Consent, when executed and delivered by each applicable Guarantor, will constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Guarantor, enforceable against such Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable domestic or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law).

        5.    No Default.    As of the Amendment Effective Date, no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.


ARTICLE FOUR: MISCELLANEOUS

        1.     The provisions of this Amendment shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. Other than in accordance with Section 8.5 of the Credit Agreement, none of the Borrowers may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender. No Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with Section 11.6 of the Credit Agreement.

        2.     Except as expressly amended hereby, the Credit Agreement and all other documents, agreements and instruments relating thereto are and shall remain unmodified and in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed. On and after the Amendment Effective Date, each reference in the Credit Agreement to "this Agreement", "hereunder", "hereof", "herein" or words of like import, and each reference in the Notes to the Credit Agreement, shall mean and be a reference to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby, and this Amendment and the Credit Agreement shall be read together and construed as a single instrument.

        3.     Any provision of this Amendment which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without

10



invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

        4.     The execution, delivery and performance of this Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, constitute a waiver of any provision of, or operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of any Agent or Lender under, the Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents.

        5.     Section headings herein are included herein for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part hereof for any other purpose or be given any substantive effect.

        6.     THIS AMENDMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

        7.     This Amendment may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Amendment on any number of separate counterparts (including by telecopy), and all of such counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.
