(e)           In the event that any Term Loan Agent or the Term Loan Lenders enter into any amendment, waiver or consent in respect of or replace any of the Term Loan Collateral Documents for the purpose of adding to, or deleting from, or waiving or consenting to any departures from any provisions of, any Term Loan Collateral Document or changing in any manner the rights of any Term Loan Agent, the Term Loan Lenders, the Borrower or any other Grantor thereunder in respect of the Term Facility First Priority Collateral, then such amendment, waiver or consent (other than those effecting any release of any Liens in Term Facility First Priority Collateral except as provided in Section 5.1) shall apply automatically to any comparable provision of each comparable ABL Collateral Document (but solely as to Term Facility First Priority Collateral) without the consent of the ABL Agent or any ABL Lender and without any action by the ABL Lenders, the Borrower or any other Grantor; provided that such amendment, waiver or consent does not materially adversely affect the rights of the ABL Lenders or the interests of the ABL Lenders in the Term Facility First Priority Collateral unless the rights and interests of the Term Lenders are affected in a like and similar manner (without regard to the fact that the Lien of such Term Loan Collateral Document is senior to the Lien of the comparable ABL Collateral Document).  The Designated Term Loan Agent shall give written notice of such amendment, waiver or consent to the ABL Agent; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the effectiveness of such amendment, waiver or consent with respect to the provisions of any ABL Collateral Document as set forth in this Section 5.3(e).
 
31

(f)            The Borrower may designate additional agreements governing or evidencing Obligations of the Grantors that are to be secured with a Lien senior to the Lien on Term Facility First Priority Collateral securing the ABL Claims as a “Term Additional Agreement” pursuant to this Section 5.3(f) if (x) the incurrence of the obligations thereunder is not prohibited under any of the ABL Loan Documents or Term Loan Documents then in effect and (y) the Borrower shall have delivered a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Borrower to the ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent party hereto at such time setting forth the information and including any documentation required by Section 8.3(b).

5.4          Rights As Unsecured Creditors.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Second Priority Agents and the Second Priority Lenders may exercise rights and remedies as an unsecured creditor against the Borrower or any Subsidiary that has guaranteed the Second Priority Claims in accordance with the terms of the applicable Second Priority Documents and applicable law, in each case to the extent not inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement.  Nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit the receipt by any Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender of the required payments of interest and principal so long as such receipt is not the direct or indirect result of (a) the exercise by any Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender of rights or remedies as a secured creditor in respect of the applicable portion of the Common Collateral or (b) enforcement in contravention of this Agreement of any Lien in respect of Second Priority Claims held by any of them.  In the event any Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender becomes a judgment lien creditor or other secured creditor in respect of Common Collateral as a result of its enforcement of its rights as an unsecured creditor in respect of Second Priority Claims or otherwise, such judgment or other lien shall be subordinated to the Liens securing First Priority Claims on the same basis as the other Liens securing the Second Priority Claims are so subordinated to such Liens securing First Priority Claims under this Agreement.  Nothing in this Agreement impairs or otherwise adversely affects any rights or remedies the ABL Agent or the ABL Lenders may have with respect to the ABL Facility First Priority Collateral, or any rights or remedies the Term Loan Agents or the Term Loan Lenders may have with respect to the Term Facility First Priority Collateral.

5.5          First Priority Agent as Gratuitous Bailee for Perfection.

(a)           The ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent agrees to hold that part of the Common Collateral that is in its possession or control (or in the possession or control of its agents or bailees) to the extent that possession or control thereof is taken to perfect a Lien thereon under the UCC (such Common Collateral being the “Pledged Collateral”) as
 
32

(i)            in the case of the ABL Agent, the collateral agent for the ABL Lenders under the ABL Loan Documents for which such ABL Agent is acting as agent or, in the case of each Term Loan Agent, the collateral agent for the Term Lenders under the Term Loan Documents for which such Term Loan Agent is acting as agent and

(ii)           non-fiduciary, gratuitous bailee for the benefit of each other Agent (such bailment being intended, among other things, to satisfy the requirements of Sections 8-106(d)(3), 8-301(a)(2) and 9-313(c) of the UCC) and any assignee solely for the purpose of perfecting the security interest granted under the ABL Loan Documents and the Term Loan Documents, respectively, subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 5.5.

Each Agent hereby appoints each other Agent as their non-fiduciary gratuitous bailee for the purposes of perfecting their security interest in all Pledged Collateral in which such other Agent has a perfected security interest under the UCC.  Solely with respect to any Deposit Accounts under the control of the ABL Agent, such ABL Agent agrees to also hold such control as gratuitous agent for the Term Loan Agents subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 5.5.  Solely with respect to any Deposit Accounts under the control of any Term Loan Agent, such Term Loan Agent agrees to also hold such control as gratuitous agent for the ABL Agent and each other Term Loan Agent subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 5.5.  The ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent hereby accepts such appointments pursuant to this Section 5.5(a) and acknowledges and agrees that it shall hold the Pledged Collateral for the benefit of the other Lenders with respect to any Pledged Collateral and that any proceeds received by such Agent under any Pledged Collateral shall be applied in accordance with Section 4.

(b)          Except as otherwise specifically provided herein (including Sections 3.1 and 4), until the Discharge of ABL Priority Claims has occurred, the ABL Agent shall be entitled to deal with the Pledged Collateral constituting ABL Facility First Priority Collateral in accordance with the terms of the ABL Loan Documents as if the Liens under the Term Loan Collateral Documents did not exist.  The rights of the Term Loan Agents and the Term Loan Lenders with respect to such Pledged Collateral shall at all times be subject to the terms of this Agreement.  Except as otherwise specifically provided herein (including Sections 3.1 and 4), until the Discharge of Term Priority Claims has occurred, each Term Loan Agent shall be entitled to deal with the Pledged Collateral constituting Term Facility First Priority Collateral in accordance with the terms of the Term Loan Documents as if the Liens under the ABL Collateral Documents did not exist.  The rights of the ABL Agent and the ABL Lenders with respect to such Pledged Collateral shall at all times be subject to the terms of this Agreement.

(c)           Each Agent shall have no obligation whatsoever to any Lender or other Agents to ensure that the Pledged Collateral is genuine or owned by any of the Grantors, to perfect the security interest of any other Agent or any other Lender or to protect or preserve rights or benefits of any Person or any rights pertaining to the applicable portion of the Common Collateral except as expressly set forth in this Section 5.5.  The duties or responsibilities of the ABL Agent under this Section 5.5 shall be limited solely to holding the Pledged Collateral as gratuitous bailee (and with respect to Deposit Accounts under the ABL Agent’s control, gratuitous agent) in accordance with this Section 5.5 and delivering the Pledged Collateral upon a Discharge of ABL Priority Claims as provided in Section 5.5(e) below.  The duties or responsibilities of each Term Loan Agent under this Section 5.5 shall be limited solely to holding the Pledged Collateral as gratuitous bailee (and with respect to Deposit Accounts under such Term Loan Agent’s control, gratuitous agent) in accordance with this Section 5.5 and delivering the Pledged Collateral upon a Discharge of Term Priority Claims as provided in Section 5.5(f) below.
 
33

(d)          None of the Agents shall have by reason of the ABL Collateral Documents or Term Loan Collateral Documents, this Agreement or any other document a fiduciary relationship in respect of the any other Agent or Lender represented by such other Agent.  Each Agent and the respective Lenders represented by it hereby waives and releases each other Agent and the respective Lenders represented by it from all claims and liabilities arising pursuant to such Agent’s role under this Section 5.5 as gratuitous bailee and gratuitous agent with respect to the Pledged Collateral.  It is understood and agreed that the interests of the ABL Agent and the ABL Lenders, on the one hand, and the Term Loan Agents and the Term Loan Lenders on the other hand, may differ and the ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent and each of the ABL Lenders and Term Loan Lenders shall be fully entitled to act in their own interest without taking into account the interests of any other Agents or Lenders represented by such other Agent.

(e)           Upon the Discharge of ABL Priority Claims, such ABL Agent shall deliver or retain, as set forth below, the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representations or warranties) in the following order:

first, if a Discharge of the Term Priority Claims has not already occurred, the ABL Agent shall deliver the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representations or warranties) to the Designated Term Loan Agent until a Discharge of Term Priority Claims has occurred,

second, if a Discharge of Term Priority Claims has occurred and there are any ABL Other Claims (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made), the ABL Agent shall retain the remaining Pledge Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representations or warranties) for application to any ABL Other Claims until no ABL Other Claims remain outstanding (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made),

34

fourth, to the extent both a Discharge of ABL Priority Claims and Discharge of Term Priority Term Loan Claims has occurred and no ABL Other Claims or Term Loan Other Claims remain outstanding (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made), the ABL Agent shall deliver the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representations or warranties) to the Borrower or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.

Upon such Discharge of ABL Priority Claims, the ABL Agent further agrees to take all other action reasonably requested by the Designated Term Loan Agent at the expense of the Designated Term Loan Agent or the Borrower in connection with each Term Loan Agent obtaining a first-priority interest in the ABL Facility First Priority Collateral.  The Borrower shall take such further action as is required to effectuate the transfers contemplated hereby and shall indemnify the ABL Agent for loss or damage suffered by the ABL Agent as a result of such transfer except for loss or damage suffered by the ABL Agent primarily as a result of its own willful misconduct, gross negligence or bad faith.  The ABL Agent has no obligation to follow instructions from the Designated Term Loan Agent in contravention of this Agreement.

(f)            Upon the Discharge of Term Priority Claims, each Term Loan Agent shall deliver or retain, as set forth below, the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representation or warranty) in the following order:

second, if a Discharge of ABL Priority Claims has occurred and there are any Term Loan Other Claims (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made), each Term Loan Agent (other than the Designated Term Loan Agent) shall deliver (and in the case of the Designated Term Loan Agent, the Designated Term Loan Agent shall retain) the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representation or warranty) to the Designated Term Loan Agent for application to any Term Loan Other Claims until no Term Loan Other Claims remain outstanding (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made),

third, if a Discharge of ABL Priority Claims has occurred, no Term Loan Other Claims remain outstanding (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made) and there are any ABL Other Claims (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made), each Term Loan Agent shall deliver the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representation or warranty) to the ABL Agent for application to any ABL Other Claims until no ABL Other Claims remain outstanding (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made), and
 
35

fourth, to the extent both a Discharge of Term Priority Claims and Discharge of ABL Priority Claims has occurred and no ABL Other Claims or Term Loan Other Claims remain outstanding (other than indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made), each Term Loan Agent shall deliver the remaining Pledged Collateral in its possession (if any) together with any necessary endorsements (such endorsement shall be without recourse and without any representation or warranty) to the Borrower or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.

Upon such Discharge of Term Priority Claims, each Term Loan Agent further agrees to take all other action reasonably requested by the ABL Agent at the expense of the ABL Agent or the Borrower in connection with the ABL Agent obtaining a first-priority interest in the Term Facility First Priority Collateral.  The Borrower shall take such further action as is required to effectuate the transfers contemplated hereby and shall indemnify each Term Loan Agent for loss or damage suffered by such Term Loan Agent as a result of such transfer except for loss or damage suffered by such Term Loan Agent primarily as a result of its own willful misconduct, gross negligence or bad faith.  Each Term Loan Agent has no obligation to follow instructions from the ABL Agent in contravention of this Agreement.

(g)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, any obligation of any Agent to make any delivery to any other Agent under Section 5.5(e), Section 5.5(f) or Section 5.7 is subject to (i) the order of any court of competent jurisdiction or (ii) any automatic stay imposed in connection with any Insolvency or Liquidation Proceeding.

provided, further, however, the royalty-free, rent-free license and lease granted in clause (e) with respect to the applicable Term Facility First Priority Collateral shall be subject to Section 5.6(a) and shall only apply during, and immediately expire upon the end of, such 180 day period (provided that such expiration shall be without prejudice to the sale or other disposition of the ABL Facility First Priority Collateral in accordance with applicable law) and that such license shall apply to the use of the Trademarks in connection with goods and services of similar type and quality to those theretofore sold by Grantor under such Trademark.

6.5          Application.  This Agreement, which the parties hereto expressly acknowledge as a “subordination agreement” within the meaning of, and enforceable under, Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, shall be applicable prior to and after the commencement of any Insolvency or Liquidation Proceeding.  All references herein to any Grantor shall apply to any trustee for such Person and such Person as debtor in possession.  The relative rights as to the Common Collateral and proceeds thereof shall continue after the filing thereof on the same basis as prior to the date of the petition, subject to any court order approving the financing of, or use of cash collateral by, any Grantor.

6.6          Waivers.  Until the Discharge of ABL Priority Claims has occurred, each Term Loan Agent, each on behalf of itself and each applicable Term Loan Lender, (a) will not assert or enforce any claim under, Section 506(c) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any successor provision) senior to or on a parity with the Liens on ABL Facility First Priority Collateral securing the ABL Priority Claims for costs or expenses of preserving or disposing of any ABL Collateral and (b) waives any claim it may now or hereafter have arising out of the election by any ABL Lender of the application of Section 1111(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any successor provision) with respect to any ABL Facility First Priority Collateral.  Until the Discharge of Term Priority Claims has occurred, the ABL Agent, on behalf of itself and each ABL Lender, (a) will not assert or enforce any claim under Section 506(c) of the United States Bankruptcy Code senior to or on a parity with the Liens on Term Facility First Priority Collateral securing the Term Loan Priority Claims for costs or expenses of preserving or disposing of any Term Loan Collateral and (b) waives any claim it may now or hereafter have arising out of the election by any Term Loan Lender of the application of Section 1111(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code with respect to any Term Facility First Priority Collateral.

6.7          Separate Grants of Liens.  Each Term Loan Lender and each ABL Lender acknowledges and agrees that (a) the grants of Liens pursuant to the ABL Collateral Documents and the Term Loan Collateral Documents constitute two separate and distinct grants of Liens and (b) because of, among other things, their differing rights in the Common Collateral, the Term Loan Claims are fundamentally different from the ABL Claims and must be separately classified in any plan of reorganization (or other plans of similar effect under any Bankruptcy Law) proposed or adopted in an Insolvency or Liquidation Proceeding.  To further effectuate the intent of the parties as provided in the immediately preceding sentence, if it is held that the claims of the ABL Lenders and the Term Loan Lenders in respect of the Common Collateral constitute only one secured claim (rather than separate classes of senior and junior secured claims), then the ABL Lenders and the Term Loan Lenders hereby acknowledge and agree that all distributions shall be made as if there were separate classes of ABL Claims and Term Loan Claims against the Grantors, with the effect being that, to the extent that the aggregate value of the ABL Facility First Priority Collateral or Term Facility First Priority Collateral is sufficient, the ABL Lenders or the Term Loan Lenders, respectively, shall be entitled to receive, in addition to amounts distributed to them in respect of principal, pre-petition interest and other claims, all amounts owing in respect of post-petition interest that is available from each pool of Priority Collateral for each of the ABL Lenders and the Term Loan Lenders, respectively, before any distribution is made in respect of the claims held by the other Lenders from such Priority Collateral, with the other Lenders hereby agreeing to turn over to the respective other Lenders amounts otherwise received or receivable by them to the extent necessary to effectuate the intent of this sentence, even if such turnover has the effect of reducing the aggregate recoveries.

Section 7.          Reliance; Waivers; etc.

7.1          Reliance.  The consent by the First Priority Lenders to the execution and delivery of the Second Priority Documents to which the First Priority Lenders have consented and all loans and other extensions of credit made or deemed made on and after the date hereof by the First Priority Lenders to the Borrower or any Subsidiary shall be deemed to have been given and made in reliance upon this Agreement.  The Second Priority Agent, on behalf of itself and each applicable Second Priority Lender, acknowledges that it and the applicable Second Priority Lenders are not entitled to rely on any credit decision or other decisions made by the First Lien Agent or any First Priority Lender in taking or not taking any action under the applicable Second Priority Document or this Agreement.

7.2          No Warranties or Liability.  Except as set forth in Section 8.15, neither the First Priority Agent nor any First Priority Lender shall have been deemed to have made any express or implied representation or warranty, including with respect to the execution, validity, legality, completeness, collectibility or enforceability of any of the First Priority Documents, the ownership of any Common Collateral or the perfection or priority of any Liens thereon.  The First Priority Lenders will be entitled to manage and supervise their respective loans and extensions of credit under the First Priority Documents in accordance with law and as they may otherwise, in their sole discretion, deem appropriate, and the First Priority Lenders may manage their loans and extensions of credit without regard to any rights or interests that any Second Priority Agent or any of the Second Priority Lenders have in the Common Collateral or otherwise, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement.  Neither the First Priority Agent nor any First Priority Lender shall have any duty to any Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender to act or refrain from acting in a manner that allows, or results in, the occurrence or continuance of an event of default or default under any agreements with the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof (including the Second Priority Documents), regardless of any knowledge thereof that they may have or be charged with.  Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the First Priority Agent, the First Priority Lenders, the Second Priority Agent and the Second Priority Lenders have not otherwise made to each other, nor do they hereby make to each other, any warranties, express or implied, nor do they assume any liability to each other with respect to (a) the enforceability, validity, value or collectibility of any of the First Priority Claims, the Second Priority Claims or any guarantee or security which may have been granted to any of them in connection therewith, (b) the Borrower’s title to or right to transfer any of the Common Collateral or (c) any other matter except as expressly set forth in this Agreement.

7.3          Obligations Unconditional.  All rights, interests, agreements and obligations of the First Lien Agent and the First Priority Lenders, and the Second Priority Agent and the Second Priority Lenders, respectively, hereunder shall remain in full force and effect irrespective of:
 
45

(a)           any lack of validity or enforceability of any First Priority Documents or any Second Priority Documents;

(b)           any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other terms of, all or any of the First Priority Claims or Second Priority Claims, or any amendment or waiver or other modification, including any increase in the amount thereof, whether by course of conduct or otherwise, of the terms of the ABL Credit Agreement or any other ABL Loan Document or of the terms of the Term Loan Agreement, any Term Additional Agreement or any other Term Loan Document;

(c)           any exchange of any security interest in any Common Collateral or any other collateral, or any amendment, waiver or other modification, whether in writing or by course of conduct or otherwise, of all or any of the First Priority Claims or Second Priority Claims or any guarantee thereof;

(d)           the commencement of any Insolvency or Liquidation Proceeding in respect of the Borrower or any other Grantor; or

(e)           any other circumstances that otherwise might constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Borrower or any other Grantor in respect of the First Priority Claims, or of any Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lenders in respect of this Agreement.

Section 8.          Miscellaneous.

8.1          Conflicts.  Subject to Section 8.18, in the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and the provisions of any ABL Loan Document or any Term Loan Document, the provisions of this Agreement shall govern.  Solely as among Term Loan Lenders, in the event of any conflict between this Agreement and the Term Loan Intercreditor Agreement, the Term Loan Intercreditor Agreement shall govern.

8.2          Term of this Agreement; Severability.  Subject to Section 5.7 and Section 6.4, (i) if no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under any Credit Agreement (as such term is defined in the applicable Credit Agreement), this Agreement shall terminate upon the first to occur of the Discharge of the ABL Priority Claims or the Discharge of the Term Priority Claims and (ii) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under any Credit Agreement (as such term is defined in the applicable Credit Agreement), this Agreement shall terminate upon the Discharge of ABL Priority Claims, the Discharge of Term Priority Claims and the payment in full in cash of all ABL Other Claims and Term Loan Other Claims (other than, in each case, indemnification and contingent obligations for which no claim has been made).  This is a continuing agreement of lien subordination and the First Priority Lenders may continue, at any time and without notice to the Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender, to extend credit and other financial accommodations and lend monies to or for the benefit of the Borrower or any other Grantor constituting First Priority Claims in reliance hereon.  The terms of this Agreement shall survive, and shall continue in full force and effect, in any Insolvency or Liquidation Proceeding.  Any provision of this Agreement that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate 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.
 
46

8.3          Amendments; Waivers.

(a)           No amendment, modification or waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement by the ABL Agent or any Term Loan Agent shall be deemed to be made unless the same shall be in writing signed on behalf of the party making the same or its authorized agent (and, subject to the following sentence, the Borrower, but in any event with notice to the Borrower) and each waiver, if any, shall be a waiver only with respect to the specific instance involved and shall in no way impair the rights of the parties making such waiver or the obligations of the other parties to such party in any other respect or at any other time.  The Borrower shall have the right to consent to or approve any amendment, modification or waiver of (i) Sections 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.7, 6.1 and 8 of this Agreement and (ii) any provision of this Agreement to the extent (A) the rights or obligations of the Borrower or any other Grantor are affected by the terms thereof, (B) that any term thereof changes, alters, modifies or otherwise affects any power, privilege, right, remedy, liability or obligation of, or otherwise adversely affects in any manner, any Other Term Loan Agent that is not then party hereto, or any Term Loan Lender not then represented by an Other Term Loan Agent that is then party hereto (including but not limited to any change, alteration, modification or other effect upon any power, privilege, right, remedy, liability or obligation of or other adverse effect upon any such Other Term Loan Agent or additional Term Loan Lender that may at any subsequent time become a party or beneficiary hereof) regardless of whether any such Other Term Loan Agent or additional Term Loan Lender ever becomes a party or beneficiary hereof or (C) that any term thereof changes, alters, modifies or otherwise affects any power, privilege, right, remedy, liability or obligation of, or otherwise adversely affects in any manner, a holder of an ABL Designated Additional Obligation, ABL Designated Banking Services Obligation, ABL Designated Swap Obligation, Term Loan Designated Additional Obligation, Term Loan Designated Banking Services Obligation or Term Loan Designated Swap Obligation (including but not limited to any change, alteration, modification or other effect upon any power, privilege, right, remedy, liability or obligation of or other adverse effect upon any such holder).

(b)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, this Agreement may be amended from time to time at the request of the Borrower, at the Borrower’s expense and without the consent of the ABL Agent, any Term Loan Agent, any Lenders or any other Person, to

(i)            add other parties holding other Term Loan Claims (or any agent or trustee therefor) the extent such indebtedness is not prohibited by the ABL Loan Documents or Term Loan Documents,

(ii)           establish that the Liens on the Term Facility First Priority Collateral securing such Term Loan Claims shall be superior in all respects to all Liens on the Term Facility First Priority Collateral securing any ABL Claims and shall share in the benefits of the Term Facility First Priority Collateral equally and ratably with all Liens on the Term Facility First Priority Collateral securing any Term Loan Claims (subject to the terms of the Term Loan Documents), and
 
47

(iii)          provide to the holders of such Term Loan Claims (or any agent or trustee thereof) the comparable rights and benefits as are provided to the comparable holders of Term Loan Claims under this Agreement (subject to the terms of the Term Loan Documents), in each case so long as such modifications are not prohibited by the ABL Loan Documents or Term Loan Documents; provided that, in connection with any such amendment contemplated by this Section 8.3(b), the Borrower shall deliver to the ABL Agent, and each Term Loan Agent party hereto at such time a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Borrower (the “Additional Claims Certificate”):

(A)          describing the indebtedness and other obligations being added as Term Loan Claims pursuant to this Section 8.3(b) (the “Additional Term Loan Claims”) and including a statement of the maximum aggregate principal amount of such Additional Term Loan Claims as of the date of such certificate;

(B)          setting forth the Term Additional Agreement (or the replacement Term Loan Agreement) under which such Additional Term Loan Claims are issued or incurred or the guarantees of or Liens securing such Additional Term Loan Claims are, or are to be, created, and attaching copies of such Term Additional Agreement (or the replacement Term Loan Agreement) and the other material Term Loan Documents related thereto as each Grantor has executed and delivered to the Term Loan Agent for the holders of such Additional Term Loan Claims (such Person being referred to as an “Additional Term Loan Agent” with respect thereto) with respect to such Additional Term Loan Claims on the closing date of such Additional Term Loan Claims, certified as being true and complete by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower;

(C)           identifying the Person that serves as the Additional Term Loan Agent for such Additional Term Loan Claims;

(D)          certifying that the incurrence of such Additional Term Loan Claims, the creation of the Liens securing such Additional Term Loan Claims and the designation of such Additional Term Loan Claims as “Term Loan Claims” hereunder do not violate or result in a default under Section 2.3 of this Agreement or any other provision of the ABL Loan Documents and the Term Loan Documents in effect at such time;

(E)           certifying that the Term Loan Documents relating to such Additional Term Loan Claims authorize the Additional Term Loan Agent to become a party hereto by executing and delivering an Intercreditor Joinder Agreement and provide that upon such execution and delivery, such Additional Term Loan Claims and the holders thereof shall become subject to and bound by the provisions of this Agreement; and
 
48

(F)           attaching a fully completed Intercreditor Joinder Agreement executed and delivered by such Additional Term Loan Agent, the Borrower and Holdings.

The ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent shall be entitled to rely on the Additional Claims Certificate.  At the request (and sole expense) of the Borrower, without the consent of any Lender, the ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent are hereby authorized to execute and deliver an acknowledgment and confirmation of such modifications and/or enter into an amendment, a restatement or a supplement to this Agreement to facilitate such modifications (it being understood that such actions shall not be required for the effectiveness of any such modifications).

8.4          Information Concerning Financial Condition of the Borrower and the Subsidiaries.  Neither the First Priority Agent nor any First Priority Lender shall have any obligation to the Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender to keep the Second Priority Agent or any Second Priority Lender informed of, and the Second Priority Agent and the Second Priority Lenders shall not be entitled to rely on the First Priority Agent or the First Priority Lenders with respect to, (a) the financial condition of the Borrower and the Subsidiaries and all endorsers and/or guarantors of the First Priority Claims or the Second Priority Claims and (b) all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the First Priority Claims or the Second Priority Claims.  The ABL Agent, the ABL Lenders, the Term Loan Agents and the Term Loan Lenders shall have no duty to advise any other party hereunder of information known to it or them regarding such condition or any such circumstances or otherwise.  In the event that the ABL Agent, any ABL Lender, any Term Loan Agent or any Term Loan Lender, in its or their sole discretion, undertakes at any time or from time to time to provide any such information to any other party, it or they shall be under no obligation (w) to make, and the ABL Agent, the ABL Lenders, the Term Loan Agents and the Term Loan Lenders shall not make, any express or implied representation or warranty, including with respect to the accuracy, completeness, truthfulness or validity of any such information so provided, (x) to provide any additional information or to provide any such information on any subsequent occasion, (y) to undertake any investigation or (z) to disclose any information that, pursuant to accepted or reasonable commercial finance practices, such party wishes to maintain confidential or is otherwise required to maintain confidential.  Nothing in this section shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the confidentiality obligations of the ABL Agent and the ABL Lenders under the ABL Credit Agreement and of the Term Loan Agents and the Term Loan Lenders under the Term Loan Agreement or any Term Additional Agreement.

8.5          Subrogation.  Each Term Loan Agent, for and on behalf of itself and the applicable Term Loan Lenders, agrees that no payment to the ABL Agent or any ABL Lender pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement shall entitle any Term Loan Agent or any Term Loan Lender to exercise any rights of subrogation in respect thereof until the Discharge of ABL Priority Claims shall have occurred.  Following the Discharge of ABL Priority Claims, the ABL Agent agrees to execute such documents, agreements, and instruments as any Term Loan Agent or any Term Loan Lender may reasonably request to evidence the transfer by subrogation to any such Person of an interest in the ABL Priority Claims resulting from payments to the ABL Agent by such Person, so long as all costs and expenses (including all reasonable legal fees and disbursements) incurred in connection therewith by the ABL Agent are paid by such Person upon request for payment thereof.  The ABL Agent, for and on behalf of itself and the ABL Lenders, agrees that no payment to any Term Loan Agent or any Term Loan Lender pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement shall entitle the ABL Agent or any ABL Lender to exercise any rights of subrogation in respect thereof until the Discharge of Term Priority Claims shall have occurred.  Following the Discharge of Term Priority Claims, each Term Loan Agent agrees to execute such documents, agreements, and instruments as the ABL Agent or any ABL Lender may reasonably request to evidence the transfer by subrogation to any such Person of an interest in the Term Loan Claims resulting from payments to any Term Loan Agent by such Person, so long as all costs and expenses (including all reasonable legal fees and disbursements) incurred in connection therewith by the Term Loan Agent are paid by such Person upon request for payment thereof.

8.9          Further Assurances.  The ABL Agent, on behalf of itself and each ABL Lender, and each Term Loan Agent, on behalf of itself and each applicable Term Loan Lender, agrees that each of them shall take such further action and shall execute and deliver to the ABL Agent, the ABL Lenders, the Term Loan Agents and the Term Loan Lenders such additional documents and instruments (in recordable form, if requested) as the ABL Agent, the ABL Lenders, the Term Loan Agents or the Term Loan Lenders may reasonably request, at the expense of the Borrower, to effectuate the terms of and the Lien priorities contemplated by this Agreement.

8.19        Supplements.  Upon the execution by any Subsidiary of the Borrower of a supplement hereto in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B or in form and substance satisfactory to the ABL Agent and the Designated Term Loan Agent, such Subsidiary shall be a party to this Agreement and shall be bound by the provisions hereof to the same extent as the Borrower and each other Grantor are so bound.
 
53

8.20        Other Intercreditor Agreements.  In the event that the Borrower or any Subsidiary incurs any obligations secured by a Lien on any Common Collateral that is junior to all Liens thereon securing all Term Loan Claims and the ABL Claims, then the ABL Agent and each Term Loan Agent shall enter into an intercreditor agreement (the terms of which are consistent with market terms governing security arrangements for the sharing of liens on a junior basis at the time such intercreditor agreement is proposed to be established in light of the type of Indebtedness to be secured by such liens, as determined in good faith by the Borrower, the ABL Agent and the Designated Term Loan Agent) with the agent or trustee for the secured parties with respect to such secured obligation to reflect the relative Lien priorities of such parties with respect to the Common Collateral and governing the relative rights, benefits and privileges as among such parties in respect of the Common Collateral, including as to application of proceeds of the Common Collateral, voting rights, control of the Common Collateral and waivers with respect to the Common Collateral, in each case so long as such secured obligations are not prohibited by, and the terms of such intercreditor agreement do not violate or conflict with, the provisions of this Agreement or the other ABL Loan Documents or Term Loan Documents, as the case may be.  Each party hereto agrees that the ABL Lenders (as among themselves) and the Term Loan Lenders (as among themselves) may each enter into intercreditor agreements (or similar arrangements) governing the rights, benefits and privileges as among the ABL Lenders or as among the Term Loan Lenders, as the case may be, in respect of any or all of the Common Collateral, this Agreement and the applicable other documents, as the case may be, including as to the application of proceeds of the Common Collateral, voting rights, control of the Common Collateral and waivers with respect to the Common Collateral, in each case so long as the terms thereof do not violate or conflict with the provisions of this Agreement or the other applicable ABL Loan Documents or Term Loan Documents, as the case may be.  If any such intercreditor agreement (or similar arrangement) is entered into, the provisions thereof shall not be (or be construed to be) an amendment, modification or other change to this Agreement or any other ABL Loan Document or Term Loan Document, and the provisions of this Agreement and the other ABL Loan Documents and Term Loan Documents shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof (as such provisions may be amended, modified or otherwise supplemented from time to time in accordance with the terms thereof, including to give effect to any intercreditor agreement (or similar arrangement)).
