WHEREAS, the Company and the other Grantors desire to amend certain provisions of the Intercreditor Agreement as set forth herein, and the Term Loan Administrative Agent, Term Loan Agent, the Working Capital Administrative Agent, the Working Capital Agent and the Control Agent are willing to agree to such amendments on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein; and
WHEREAS, by this Amendment, the Company, the other Grantors, the Term Loan Administrative Agent, Term Loan Agent, the Working Capital Administrative Agent, the Working Capital Agent and the Control Agent desire and intend to evidence such amendments;
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the mutual agreements and covenants contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1.Amendment to Intercreditor Agreement. The Intercreditor Agreement is, effective as of the satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 6 below, hereby amended as follows:

(a)Section 1.1 of the Intercreditor Agreement is amended by amending and restating the definition of “Collateral” as follows:

““Collateral means all of the assets and property of any Grantor, whether tangible or intangible, constituting both Working Capital Collateral and Term Loan Collateral; provided that Collateral shall include any such assets and property constituting Opt-Out Collateral pursuant to Section 2.5(d), with respect to any Agent for which such assets and property do not so constitute Opt-Out Collateral.”
(b)Section 1.1 of the Intercreditor Agreement is amended by adding the following definition therein:

““Opt-Out Collateral” has the meaning set forth in Section 2.5(d).”
(c)Section 2.5 of the Intercreditor Agreement is amended by adding to the end a new clause (d) as follows:

“(d)     Notwithstanding the foregoing subsections (a) through (c) above, or any other provision of this Agreement, (i) the Working Capital Agent may, in its discretion and subject to the terms of the Working Capital Credit Documents, determine to exclude from the Working Capital Collateral any assets or property of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries constituting Term Loan Priority Collateral (and forego or release any Lien thereon or security interest therein), and any assets or property of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries constituting Term Loan Priority Collateral may be expressly excluded from the Working Capital Collateral pursuant to the terms of the Working Capital Credit Documents, (ii) any Additional Agent may, in its





discretion and subject to the terms of any Additional Documents, determine to exclude from the applicable Additional Collateral any assets or property of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries constituting Term Loan Priority Collateral or Working Capital Priority Collateral, as applicable (and forego or release any Lien thereon or security interest therein), and any assets or property of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries constituting Term Loan Priority Collateral or Working Capital Priority Collateral may be expressly excluded from such Additional Collateral pursuant to the terms of such Additional Documents, and (iii) the Term Loan Agent may, in its discretion and subject to the terms of the applicable Term Loan Credit Documents (including Section 11.1 of the Term Loan Credit Agreement initially entered into as of June 22, 2012, or any equivalent provision of any other Term Loan Credit Agreement), determine to exclude from the applicable Term Loan Collateral any assets or property of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries constituting Working Capital Priority Collateral (and forego or release any Lien thereon or security interest therein), and any assets or property of any Grantor or any of its Subsidiaries constituting Working Capital Priority Collateral may be expressly excluded from such Term Loan Collateral pursuant to the terms of the applicable Term Loan Credit Documents (any such assets or property that are so excluded from the Working Capital Collateral, the applicable Additional Collateral or the applicable Term Loan Collateral, as applicable, the “Opt-Out Collateral”). In the event that any Agent so determines to exclude any assets or property, or any assets or property are so excluded from the Collateral with respect to such Agent and the applicable Claimholders, as Opt-Out Collateral pursuant to this Section 2.5(d), such Agent shall (or if permitted pursuant to the applicable Credit Documents, the Company may) give prompt written notice thereof to any other Agent and (unless given by the Company) to the Company.”
(d)The first sentence of Section 2.6 of the Intercreditor Agreement is amended and restated as follows:
“Except as provided in Section 2.5(d), the parties hereto agree that it is their intention that the Working Capital Collateral, the Term Loan Collateral and the Additional Collateral be identical.”
(e)Section 4.1(a) of the Intercreditor Agreement is amended to add the following as the penultimate sentence therein:

“Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 4.1(a), there shall not be any obligation on the Term Loan Agent or any other Term Loan Claimholder, or any Additional Agent or any other Additional Claimholder, to deliver the proceeds of any Term Loan Priority Collateral to the Working Capital Agent solely to the extent that such assets or property constitute Opt-Out Collateral in respect of which the Working Capital Agent has made a determination to exclude pursuant to Section 2.5(d), and such proceeds shall be delivered to the relevant Grantor or to whosoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same or as a court of competent jurisdictions may direct.”
(f)Section 4.1(b) of the Intercreditor Agreement is amended to add the following as the penultimate sentence therein:

“Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 4.1(b), there shall not be any obligation on the Working Capital Agent or any other Working Capital Claimholder, to deliver the proceeds of any Working Capital Priority Collateral to the Term Loan Agent or any Additional Agent solely to the extent that such assets or property constitute Opt-Out Collateral in respect of which such Agent has made a determination to exclude pursuant to Section 2.5(d), and such proceeds shall be delivered to the relevant Grantor or to whosoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same or as a court of competent jurisdictions may direct.”
2.Interpretation. For purposes of this Amendment, all terms used herein which are not otherwise defined herein, including but not limited to, those terms used in the recitals hereto, shall have the respective meanings assigned thereto in the Intercreditor Agreement as amended by this Amendment. It is understood and agreed that the terms “Working Capital Credit Agreement”, “Working Capital Credit Documents”, “Working Capital Obligations” shall not be construed to be limited to agreements or obligations the proceeds of which are used for working capital purposes.

3.Conditions Precedent. The amendments contained herein shall only be effective upon the due execution of a counterpart of this Amendment by each of the Company, the other Grantors, the Term Loan Administrative Agent, the Term Loan Agent, the Working Capital Administrative Agent, the Working Capital Agent, and the Control Agent, and the delivery of such executed counterpart to each of the other parties to this Amendment.

4.Effect of this Amendment. Except as expressly set forth herein, no other amendments, changes or modifications to the Intercreditor Agreement are intended or implied, and in all other respects the Intercreditor Agreement is





hereby specifically ratified, restated and confirmed by all parties hereto as of the effective date hereof and no party to the Intercreditor Agreement shall be entitled to any other or further amendment by virtue of the provisions of this Amendment or with respect to the subject matter of this Amendment. To the extent of conflict between the terms of this Amendment and the Intercreditor Agreement, the terms of this Amendment shall control. The Intercreditor Agreement and this Amendment shall be read and construed as one agreement. On and after the date that all conditions set forth in Section 3, above, shall have been satisfied and this Amendment has become effective, each reference in the Intercreditor Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof”, “herein” or words of like import, and each reference in the Working Capital Credit Documents, the Term Loan Credit Documents or any Additional Documents to the Intercreditor Agreement, shall mean and be a reference to the Intercreditor Agreement as amended hereby.

5.Governing Law. The validity, interpretation and enforcement of this Amendment and any dispute arising out of the relationship between the parties hereto whether in contract, tort, equity or otherwise, shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of New York but excluding any principles of conflicts of law or other rule of law that would cause the application of the law of any jurisdiction other than the laws of the State of New York.

6.Binding Effect. This Amendment shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of each of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.

7.Entire Agreement. This Amendment represents the entire agreement and understanding concerning the subject matter hereof among the parties hereto, and supersedes all other prior agreements, understandings, negotiations and discussions, representations, warranties, commitments, proposals, offers and contracts concerning the subject matter hereof, whether oral or written.

8.Headings. The headings listed herein are for convenience only and do not constitute matters to be construed in interpreting this Amendment.

9.Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Amendment by telefacsimile or other electronic method of transmission shall have the same force and effect as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Amendment. Any party delivering an executed counterpart of this Amendment by telefacsimile or other electronic method of transmission shall also deliver an original executed counterpart of this Amendment, but the failure to do so shall not affect the validity, enforceability, and binding effect of this Amendment.
