NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

 

1.                                      Definitions. All capitalized undefined terms used in this Agreement shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby.

 



 

2.                                      Incremental Revolving Commitments.

 

a.                                      Each of the Incremental Revolving Commitment Lenders that executes this Agreement hereby confirms, by its execution of this Agreement, its Incremental Revolving Commitment in an amount equal to such Lender’s Incremental Revolving Commitment set forth on Annex A attached hereto, and its obligation under the Credit Agreement, during the period from the Second Incremental Commitment Effective Date to the Revolving Commitment Termination Date, to make Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.1 of the Credit Agreement, to purchase participations in Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.3 of the Credit Agreement and to purchase participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to Section 2.2 of the Credit Agreement, in each case in accordance with and subject to the limitations set forth in the Credit Agreement.  If the undersigned Incremental Revolving Commitment Lender is already a Lender under the Credit Agreement, such Lender acknowledges and agrees that such Incremental Revolving Commitment is in addition to any existing Revolving Commitment and/or Term Commitment of such Lender under the Credit Agreement.  If the undersigned Lender is not already a Lender under the Credit Agreement, such Lender hereby acknowledges, agrees and confirms that, by its execution of this Agreement, such Lender will, as of the Second Incremental Commitment Effective Date (as defined in Section 4 below), be a party to the Credit Agreement and be bound by the provisions of the Credit Agreement and, to the extent of its new Revolving Commitment, have the rights and obligations of a Lender thereunder.  Each such Incremental Revolving Commitment Lender further acknowledges and agrees that after giving effect to all such additional Revolving Commitments on the Second Incremental Commitment Effective Date, the aggregate Revolving Commitment of such Lender shall be as set forth on Appendix A of the Credit Agreement, as amended by this Agreement.

 

b.                                      Upon giving effect to this Agreement and establishment of the Incremental Revolving Commitments in accordance with Section 2.19 of the Credit Agreement and pursuant hereto, each Incremental Revolving Commitment Lender shall automatically and without further act be deemed to have assumed a portion of the Revolving Lenders’ participations under the Credit Agreement in outstanding Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans such that, after giving effect to the Incremental Revolving Commitments and the deemed assignments and assumptions of participations, the percentage of the aggregate outstanding (i) participations under the Credit Agreement in Letters of Credit and (ii) participations hereunder in Swingline Loans held by each Revolving Lender (including the Incremental Revolving Commitment Lenders) will be equal to such Revolving Lender’s Applicable Revolving Percentage.

 

c.                                       The parties hereto acknowledge that Borrower’s request for the Incremental Revolving Commitments described herein constitutes Borrower’s first request for an increase in the Aggregate Revolving Commitments pursuant to Section 2.19 of the Credit Agreement.

 

3.                                      Amendments to Credit Agreement.  Effective as set forth in Section 4 below, the Credit Agreement is amended as follows:

Second Incremental Commitment Effective Date” means February 21, 2014.

 

b.                                      Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by restating the following definition in its entirety and inserting such definition in appropriate alphabetical order:

c.                                       Appendix A to the Credit Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as set forth on Annex B hereto.
