THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT is dated as of March 2, 2004 (the “Closing Date”), among PRENTISS PROPERTIES ACQUISITION PARTNERS, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Borrower”), each of the lenders that are a signatory hereto (each such lender, together with each lender that becomes a signatory hereto as provided in Section 13.11(b), being individually, together with its successors and assigns, a “Lender” and collectively, the “Lenders”), and EUROHYPO AG, NEW YORK BRANCH, as Administrative Agent (in such capacity, together with its successors and assigns, “Administrative Agent”).

 

R E C I T A L S:

2. Borrower, Administrative Agent, and the Lenders desire to amend, modify, renew, and restate the Original Agreement in the form of this Agreement to modify certain terms, conditions, and covenants contained in the Original Agreement.

 

3. Upon and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the parties hereto are willing to amend and restate the Original Agreement.

Adjusted Aggregate EBITDA” means, for any period, (a) Aggregate EBITDA, minus (b) the EBITDA Adjustments, on a Consolidated Basis, for all Properties.

 

Adjusted Property EBITDA” means, for any Property, the product of (a) the difference between (i) the EBITDA of such Property, minus (ii) the EBITDA Adjustments for such Property, in each case for the three (3) month period ending on the last day of the fiscal quarter immediately preceding such determination date, times (b) four (4). For Properties owned for less than three (3) months as of the date of determination, EBITDA of all such Properties shall be equal to the lesser of (I) the product of (x) the Approved Costs of such Properties, times (y) eight percent (8%), and (II) Borrower’s most-recent asset manager’s forecasts for the EBITDA of such Properties for the first (1st) calendar quarter following acquisition thereof; provided that if Administrative Agent shall reasonably determine that such amount is not an appropriate computation of EBITDA of any such Property, then EBITDA for all such Properties shall be based upon the most recent three (3) month period available.

(b) Beginning with the period commencing on the date of delivery by Borrower to Administrative Agent of notice that Borrower achieved an Investment Grade Rating, and continuing until the public announcement of a downgrade resulting in Borrower no longer having an Investment Grade Rating the interest margin over the Eurodollar Rate and the Base Rate, as the case may be, shall be based upon the Applicable Rating as follows:

(b) Term Loans Generally. If Borrower pays or prepays any portion of the Term Loans under this Agreement, then that portion may not be reborrowed. The Term Loans shall bear interest from time to time in accordance with selections made by Borrower from time to time pursuant to Section 3.4.

 

SECTION 3

 

TERMS OF PAYMENT

 

3.1 Notes and Payments.

 

(a) The Total Principal Debt shall be evidenced by the Notes, which Notes shall be payable to Lenders in the aggregate stated principal amount of the Term Loans.

 

(b) Borrower must make each payment and prepayment on the Obligation, without offset, counterclaim, or deduction, to Administrative Agent’s principal office in New York, New York, in funds that will be available for immediate use by Administrative Agent by 12:00 noon on the day due. Payments received after such time shall be deemed received on the next Business Day. Administrative Agent shall pay to each Lender any payment to which such Lender is entitled on the same day Administrative Agent receives the funds from Borrower if Administrative Agent receives the payment or prepayment before 12:00 noon, and otherwise before 12:00 noon on the following Business Day. If and to the extent that Administrative Agent does not make payments to Lenders when due, then Administrative Agent shall be obligated to pay to Lenders such unpaid amounts together with interest at the Federal Funds Rate from the due date until (but not including) the payment date.

 

3.2 Interest and Principal Payments

 

(a) Interest Payments. Accrued interest on each Borrowing is due and payable on the first (1st) day of each calendar month during the term of this Agreement, commencing on April 1, 2004, and on the Termination Date.

 

(b) Principal Payments. The Total Principal Debt is due and payable on the Termination Date.

 

(c) Voluntary Prepayment. Borrower may voluntarily repay or prepay all or any part of the Total Principal Debt at any time after May 22, 2004 without premium or penalty, subject to the following conditions:

 

(i) Administrative Agent must receive Borrower’s written payment notice by 11:00 a.m. on (A) the Business Day preceding the date of payment of a Eurodollar Borrowing, and (B) the Business Day preceding the date of payment of a Base Rate Borrowing, which shall specify the payment date and the Type and amount of the Borrowing(s) to be paid, and which shall constitute an irrevocable and binding obligation of Borrower to make a repayment or prepayment on the designated date;

 

(ii) each partial repayment or prepayment must be in a minimum amount of at least $1,000,000 or a greater integral multiple of $100,000, or, if less, the Total Principal Debt; and

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    26     


(iii) Borrower shall pay any related Funding Loss upon demand.

 

3.3 Interest Options. Except as specifically otherwise provided, Borrowings shall bear interest at an annual rate equal to the lesser of (a) the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin, or the Eurodollar Rate plus the Applicable Margin (in each case as designated or deemed designated by Borrower and, in the case of Eurodollar Borrowings, for the Interest Period designated by Borrower), and (b) the Maximum Rate. Each change in the Base Rate and Maximum Rate is effective, without notice to Borrower or any other Person, upon the effective date of change.

 

3.4 Quotation of Rates. A Representative of Borrower may call Administrative Agent before delivering a Borrowing Request to receive an indication of the interest rates then in effect, but the indicated rates do not bind Administrative Agent or Lenders or affect the interest rate that is actually in effect when Borrower delivers its Borrowing Request or on the Borrowing Date.

 

3.5 Default Rate. At the option of the Required Lenders at any time while a Default exists and to the extent permitted by applicable law, all Principal Debt, accrued interest thereon, and fees and expenses payable hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall bear interest at the Default Rate until paid, regardless of whether such payment is made before or after entry of a judgment.

 

3.6 Interest Recapture. If the designated interest rate applicable to any Borrowing exceeds the Maximum Rate, then the interest rate on that Borrowing is limited to the Maximum Rate, provided that any subsequent reductions in the designated rate shall not reduce the interest rate thereon below the Maximum Rate until the total amount of accrued interest equals the amount of interest that would have accrued if the designated rate had always been in effect. If at maturity (stated or by acceleration), or at final payment of the Notes, the total interest paid or accrued is less than the interest that would have accrued if the designated rates had always been in effect, then, at that time and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Borrower shall pay an amount equal to the difference between (a) the lesser of the amount of interest that would have accrued if the designated rates had always been in effect and the amount of interest that would have accrued if the Maximum Rate had always been in effect, and (b) the amount of interest actually paid or accrued on the Notes.

 

3.7 Interest Calculation

 

(a) Interest shall be calculated on the basis of actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) but computed as if each calendar year consisted of 360 days for all Borrowings (unless the calculation would result in an interest rate greater than the Maximum Rate, in which event interest shall be calculated on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be). All interest rate determinations and calculations by Administrative Agent are conclusive and binding absent manifest error.

 

(b) The provisions of this Agreement relating to calculation of the Base Rate and the Eurodollar Rate are included only for the purpose of determining the rate of interest or other amounts to be paid under this Agreement that are based upon those rates. Each Lender may fund and maintain its funding of all or any part of each Borrowing as it selects.

 

3.8 Maximum Rate. Regardless of any provision contained in any Loan Document or any document related thereto, it is the intent of the parties to this Agreement that no Credit Party may contract

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    27     


for, charge, take, reserve, receive or apply, as interest on all or any part of the Obligation any amount in excess of the Maximum Rate or the Maximum Amount or receive any unearned interest in violation of any applicable law, and, if any Credit Party ever does so, then any excess shall be treated as a partial repayment or prepayment of principal and any remaining excess shall be refunded to Borrower. In determining if the interest paid or payable exceeds the Maximum Rate, Borrower and the Credit Parties shall, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, (a) treat all Borrowings as but a single extension of credit (and Lenders and Borrower agree that this is the case and that provision in this Agreement for multiple Borrowings is for convenience only), (b) characterize any non-principal payment as an expense, fee or premium rather than as interest, (c) exclude voluntary repayments or prepayments and their effects, and (d) amortize, prorate, allocate and spread the total amount of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of the Obligation. If, however, the Obligation is paid in full before the end of its full contemplated term, and if the interest received for its actual period of existence exceeds the Maximum Amount, then Lenders shall refund any excess (and Lenders may not, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be subject to any penalties provided by any Governmental Requirements for contracting for, charging, taking, reserving or receiving interest in excess of the Maximum Amount).

 

3.9 Interest Periods. When Borrower requests any Eurodollar Borrowing, Borrower may elect the applicable interest period (each an “Interest Period”), which may be, at Borrower’s option, one (1), two (2), three (3), or six (6) months, subject to the following conditions: (a) each Interest Period applicable to any Eurodollar Borrowing commences on the day on or after the day when the next preceding applicable Interest Period expires; (b) if any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Borrowing begins on a day for which there exists no numerically corresponding Business Day in the calendar month at the end of the Interest Period (“Ending Calendar Month”), then the Interest Period ends on the next succeeding Business Day of the Ending Calendar Month, unless there is no succeeding Business Day in the Ending Calendar Month in which case the Interest Period ends on the next preceding Business Day of the Ending Calendar Month; (c) no Interest Period for any portion of Principal Debt may extend beyond the scheduled repayment date for that portion of Principal Debt; and (d) there may not be in effect at any one time more than five (5) Interest Periods.

 

3.10 Conversions and Continuations. Borrower may (a) on the last day of the applicable Interest Period (or at any other time, subject to payment of any Funding Loss) convert all or part of a Eurodollar Borrowing to a Base Rate Borrowing, (b) at any time convert all or part of a Base Rate Borrowing to a Eurodollar Borrowing, and (c) on the last day of an Interest Period, elect a new Interest Period for a Eurodollar Borrowing; provided that no conversions to or elections of new Interest Periods for any Eurodollar Borrowings shall be permitted while a Default exists unless the Required Lenders otherwise consent in writing. Any such conversion is subject to the dollar limits and denominations of Section 2.1 and may be accomplished by delivering a Borrowing Request to Administrative Agent no later than 11:00 a.m. (i) on the third (3rd) Business Day before (A) the conversion date for conversion to a Eurodollar Borrowing, and (B) the last day of the Interest Period, for the election of a new Interest Period, and (ii) one (1) Business Day before the last day of the Interest Period for conversion to a Base Rate Borrowing. Absent Borrower’s notice of conversion or election of a new Interest Period, a Eurodollar Borrowing shall be automatically continued as a Eurodollar Borrowing with a new Interest Period of one (1) month, with the expiration of such Eurodollar Borrowing to occur on the first (1st) day of a calendar month; provided however, if a Default exists, such Eurodollar Borrowing shall be automatically converted to a Base Rate Borrowing.

 

3.11 Order of Application

 

(a) No Default. If no Default exists, then except as otherwise specifically provided in the

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    28     


Loan Documents, any payment shall be applied to the Obligation in the order and manner as Borrower directs.

 

(b) Default. If a Default exists, any payment (including proceeds from the exercise of any Rights) shall be applied in the following order: (i) to all fees and expenses for which any Credit Party have not been paid or reimbursed in accordance with the Loan Documents (and if such payment is less than all unpaid or unreimbursed fees and expenses, then the payment shall be paid against unpaid and unreimbursed fees and expenses in the order of incurrence or due date); (ii) to accrued interest on the Principal Debt; and (iii) to the remaining Obligation in the order and manner as the Required Lenders deem appropriate.

 

(c) Pro Rata. Each payment or prepayment shall be distributed to each Lender in accordance with its Pro Rata Share of such payment or prepayment.

 

3.12 Sharing of Payments, Etc. If any Lender obtains any amount (whether voluntary, involuntary or otherwise) that exceeds the part of that payment that such Lender is then entitled to receive under the Loan Documents, then such Lender shall purchase from the other Lenders participations that will cause the purchasing Lender to share the excess amount ratably with each other Lender. If all or any portion of any excess amount is subsequently recovered from the purchasing Lender, then the purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of the recovery. Borrower agrees that any Lender purchasing a participation from another Lender under this Section may, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, exercise all of its Rights of payment with respect to that participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of Borrower in the amount of that participation.

 

3.13 Booking Borrowings. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any Lender may make, carry or transfer its Borrowings at, to, or for the account of any of its branch offices or the office of any of its Affiliates. However, no Affiliate is entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 3.15 than the transferor Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to those Borrowings, and a transfer may not be made if, as a direct result of it, Section 3.15 or 3.16 would apply to any of the Obligation. If any of the conditions of Sections 3.15 or 3.16 ever apply to a Lender, then such Lender shall, to the extent possible, carry or transfer its Borrowings at, to, or for the account of any of its branch offices or the office or branch of any of its Affiliates so long as the transfer is consistent with the other provisions of this Section, does not create any burden or adverse circumstance for such Lender that would not otherwise exist, and eliminates or ameliorates the conditions of Sections 3.15 or 3.16 as applicable.

 

3.14 Basis Unavailable or Inadequate for the Eurodollar Rate

 

(a) Determination By Administrative Agent. If Administrative Agent determines that, for any Eurodollar Borrowing, the basis for determining the applicable rate is not available, then Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Borrower and Lenders of that determination (which is conclusive and binding on Borrower absent manifest error), and all Borrowings shall bear interest at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin. Until Administrative Agent notifies Borrower that such circumstances no longer exist, Lenders’ commitments under this Agreement to make, or to convert to, Eurodollar Borrowings shall be suspended.

 

(b) Determination by a Lender. If any Lender determines that, for any Eurodollar Borrowing and for other similar loans made by such Lender to similar borrowers, the resulting rate does not accurately reflect the cost to such Lender of making or converting Borrowings at that rate for the applicable Interest Period, then such Lender shall promptly notify Administrative Agent and Borrower,

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    29     


and all Borrowings of such Lender shall bear interest at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin. Until Administrative Agent notifies Borrower that such circumstances no longer exist, such Lender’s commitment under this Agreement to make, or to convert to, Eurodollar Borrowings shall be suspended.

 

3.15 Additional Costs

 

(a) Eurocurrency Reserves. If, after the date hereof, any Lender shall be required under any Reserve Requirement to maintain reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including Eurocurrency Liabilities, then (i) such Lender (through Administrative Agent) shall, within sixty (60) days after the end of any Interest Period with respect to any Eurodollar Borrowing during which Lender was so required to maintain reserves, deliver to Borrower a certificate stating (A) that such Lender was required to maintain reserves and as a result such Lender incurred additional costs in connection with making Eurodollar Borrowings and (B) in reasonable detail, such Lender’s computations of the amount of additional interest payable by Borrower, pursuant to the provisions below, and (ii) Borrower shall, promptly upon receipt of any such certificate, pay to Administrative Agent, for the account to such Lender, additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Eurodollar Borrowing of such Lender made to it outstanding during the Interest Period with respect to which the above-referenced certificate was delivered to Administrative Agent, at a rate per annum equal to the difference obtained by subtracting (x) the Eurodollar Rate for such Interest Period from (y) the rate obtained by dividing such Eurodollar Rate by a percentage equal to 100% minus the Reserve Requirement of such Lender for such Interest Period. The amount of interest payable by Borrower to any Lender as stated in any certificate delivered to Administrative Agent pursuant to the provisions of this Section 3.15(a) shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. The provisions of this Section 3.15(a) shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

(b) Reserves. With respect to any Eurodollar Borrowing, if (i) any change in present Governmental Requirement, any change in the interpretation or application of any present Governmental Requirement, or any future Governmental Requirement imposes, modifies, or deems applicable (or if compliance by any Lender with any such requirement of any Governmental Authority results in) any such requirement that any reserves (including any marginal, emergency, supplemental or special reserves) be maintained, and (ii) those reserves reduce any sums receivable by such Lender under this Agreement or increase the costs incurred by such Lender in advancing or maintaining any portion of any Eurodollar Borrowing, then (unless the effect is already reflected in the rate of interest then applicable under this Agreement) such Lender (through Administrative Agent) shall deliver to Borrower a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the calculation of the amount necessary to compensate it for its reduction or increase (which certificate is conclusive and binding absent manifest error), and Borrower shall promptly pay that amount to such Lender upon demand.

 

(c) Capital Adequacy. With respect to any Borrowing and for similar loans to similar borrowers, if any change in present Governmental Requirement or any future Governmental Requirement regarding capital adequacy or compliance by Administrative Agent or any Lender (or any Person controlling such Lender) with any request, directive or requirement now existing or hereafter imposed by any Governmental Authority regarding capital adequacy, or any change in its written policies or in the risk category of this transaction, reduces the rate of return on its capital as a consequence of its obligations under this Agreement to a level below that which it otherwise could have achieved (taking into consideration its policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by it to be material (and it may, in determining the amount, use reasonable assumptions and allocations of costs and expenses and use any reasonable averaging or attribution method), then (unless the effect is already reflected in the rate of interest then applicable under this Agreement) Administrative Agent or such Lender (through

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    30     


Administrative Agent) shall notify Borrower and deliver to Borrower a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the calculation of the amount necessary to compensate it (which certificate is conclusive and binding absent manifest error), and Borrower shall promptly pay that amount to Administrative Agent or such Lender upon demand.

 

(d) Taxes. Any Taxes payable by Administrative Agent or any Lender or ruled (by a Governmental Authority) payable by Administrative Agent or any Lender in respect of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall, if permitted by Governmental Requirement, be paid by Borrower, together with interest and penalties, if any (except for Taxes imposed on or measured by the overall net income of Administrative Agent or such Lender). Administrative Agent or such Lender (through Administrative Agent) shall notify Borrower and deliver to Borrower a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the calculation of the amount of payable Taxes, which certificate is conclusive and binding (absent manifest error), and Borrower shall promptly pay that amount to Administrative Agent for its account or the account of such Lender, as the case may be. If Administrative Agent or such Lender subsequently receives a refund of the Taxes paid to it by Borrower, then the recipient shall promptly pay the refund to Borrower.

 

(e) Survival. The provisions of this Section 3.15 shall survive the satisfaction and payment of the Obligation and termination of this Agreement.

 

3.16 Change in Governmental Requirement. If any Governmental Requirement makes it unlawful for any Lender to make or maintain Eurodollar Borrowings, then such Lender shall promptly notify Borrower and Administrative Agent, and (a) as to undisbursed funds, that requested Borrowing shall be made as a Base Rate Borrowing, and (b), as to any outstanding Borrowing, (i) if maintaining the Borrowing until the last day of the applicable Interest Period is unlawful, the Borrowing shall be converted to a Base Rate Borrowing as of the date of notice, and Borrower shall pay any related Funding Loss, or (ii) if not prohibited by all Governmental Requirements, the Borrowing shall be converted to a Base Rate Borrowing as of the last day of the applicable Interest Period, or (iii) if any conversion will not resolve the unlawfulness, Borrower shall promptly prepay the Borrowing, without penalty, together with any related Funding Loss.

 

3.17 Funding Loss. BORROWER AGREES TO INDEMNIFY EACH LENDER AGAINST, AND PAY TO IT UPON DEMAND, ANY FUNDING LOSS OF SUCH LENDER. When any Lender demands that Borrower pay any Funding Loss, such Lender shall deliver to Borrower and Administrative Agent a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for incurring Funding Loss and the calculation of the amount, which calculation is conclusive and binding absent manifest error. The provisions of this Section 3.17 shall survive the satisfaction and payment of the Obligation and termination of this Agreement.

 

3.18 Foreign Lenders. Each Lender that is organized under the Governmental Requirements of any jurisdiction other than the United States of America or any State thereof (a) represents to Administrative Agent and Borrower that (i) no Taxes are required to be withheld by Administrative Agent or Borrower with respect to any payments to be made to it in respect of the Obligation, and (ii) it has furnished to Administrative Agent and Borrower two (2) duly completed copies of U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 BEN, Form W-8 ECI, Form W-8, or any other tax form acceptable to Administrative Agent (wherein it claims entitlement to complete exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax on all interest payments under the Loan Documents), and (b) covenants to (i) provide Administrative Agent and Borrower a new tax form upon the expiration or obsolescence of any previously delivered form according to Governmental Requirement, duly executed and completed by it, and (ii) comply from time to time with

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    31     


all Governmental Requirements with regard to the withholding tax exemption. If any of the foregoing is not true or the applicable forms are not provided and such party is obligated by law to withhold, then Borrower or Administrative Agent (without duplication) may deduct and withhold from interest payments under the Loan Documents United States federal income tax at the full rate applicable under the Code.

 

3.19 Fees

 

(a) Treatment of Fees. The fees described in this Section 3.19 (i) are not compensation for the use, detention, or forbearance of money, (ii) are in addition to, and not in lieu of, interest and expenses otherwise described in this Agreement, (iii) are payable in accordance with Section 3.1(b), (iv) are non-refundable, (v) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, bear interest, if not paid when due, at the Default Rate, and (vi) are calculated on the basis of actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) elapsed, but computed as if each calendar year consisted of 360 days, unless computation would result in an interest rate in excess of the Maximum Rate in which event the computation is made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be. The fees described in this Section 3.19 are in all events subject to the provisions of Section 3.8.

 

(b) Administrative Agent Fees. Borrower agrees to pay to Administrative Agent the administration fees described in the letter agreement(s) between Borrower and Administrative Agent.

Borrower shall not permit, as of any date, the ratio of the Unsecured Debt of the Companies on a Consolidated Basis to the Unencumbered Property Value of all Unencumbered Properties to exceed 0.55 to 1.0.

(ii) the amount of Approved Costs or EBITDA Value, as the case may be, included in the calculation of Unencumbered Property Value attributable to any single Unencumbered Property shall not exceed twenty percent (20%) of Unencumbered Property Value;

 

(iii) if any Company that owns any Unencumbered Property described above has any minority interests, then Unencumbered Property Value shall be adjusted to exclude the minority interests’ Share of such Unencumbered Property.

 

As of the Closing Date, the Unencumbered Properties consist of the Unencumbered Properties listed on Schedule 4.1. No Unencumbered Property can have a value, calculated as provided above, of less than $0.00.

 

4.2 Negative Pledge Agreements. Borrower shall not, and shall not permit any other Company to, enter into or permit to exist any arrangement or agreement (other than the Loan Documents) that directly or indirectly prohibits any Company from (a) creating or incurring any Lien (other than Permitted Liens) on any Unencumbered Property, or (b) transferring ownership of any Unencumbered Property.

 

4.3 Guaranties

 

(a) PPT Guaranty. Pursuant to the PPT Guaranty, PPT shall unconditionally guarantee in favor of the Credit Parties the full payment and performance of the Obligation.

 

(b) Subsidiary Guaranty. Pursuant to the Subsidiary Guaranty or an addendum thereto in the form attached to the Subsidiary Guaranty, each Company that owns an Unencumbered Property shall unconditionally guarantee in favor of the Credit Parties the full payment and performance of the Obligation subject to the last two sentences of Section 4.4.

 

(c) Release of Specific Subsidiary Guarantors. If, as of any date, any Property owned by a Subsidiary Guarantor is no longer an Unencumbered Property, then Administrative Agent shall, upon the written request of Borrower, release such Subsidiary Guarantor from the Subsidiary Guaranty pursuant to a release of guaranty in the form attached to the Subsidiary Guaranty, unless a Default exists or would result from such release.

 

4.4 Unencumbered Properties Held by Consolidated Affiliates. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Unencumbered Properties may include Properties owned by a Consolidated Affiliate of Borrower only if (a) Borrower or PPT owns or controls, directly or indirectly, at least ninety five percent (95%) of the issued and outstanding Stock of such Consolidated Affiliate free and clear of any Liens (other than Permitted Liens) or other restrictions on the sale or pledge thereof, (b) a majority of the holders of the Stock of such Consolidated Affiliate has the power to cause such Consolidated Affiliate to execute the Subsidiary Guaranty, grant Liens in the Unencumbered Properties owned by such Consolidated Affiliate, and transfer ownership of the Unencumbered Properties owned by such Consolidated Affiliate, (c) such Consolidated Affiliate has not (i) created, incurred, assumed,

8.13 Amendment of Constituent Documents. Borrower shall not permit any amendment of any Company’s Constituent Documents, if any, which would materially and adversely affect Administrative Agent or Lenders or their respective Rights under the Loan Documents.

 

8.14 Interest Rate Agreements. Borrower shall not permit the Companies’ Indebtedness that is not either subject to a fixed interest rate or hedged pursuant to an Interest Rate Agreement acceptable to Administrative Agent (“Variable Rate Debt”) to exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of Total Assets as of such date; provided that the Companies’ Variable Rate Debt may exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of Total Assets for a period of time not to exceed ninety (90) days if Borrower is diligently seeking Interest Rate Agreements with respect to such Indebtedness or is in the process of incurring fixed rate Indebtedness or an Equity Issuance in order to comply with the requirements of this Section 8.14.

SECTION 11

 

RIGHTS AND REMEDIES

 

11.1 Remedies Upon Default

 

(a) Debtor Relief. If a Default (i) occurs under Section 10.3(c) or (ii) occurs and is continuing under Section 10.3(a), (b) or (d), the entire unpaid balance of the Obligation automatically becomes due and payable without any action of any kind whatsoever.

 

(b) Other Defaults. If a Default occurs and is continuing, subject to the terms of Section 13.9(b), then Administrative Agent, upon the request of the Required Lenders, may do any one or more of the following: (i) if the maturity of the Obligation has not already been accelerated under Section 11.1(a), then declare the entire unpaid balance of all or any part of the Obligation immediately due and payable, whereupon it is due and payable; (ii) reduce any claim to judgment; and (iii) exercise any and all other legal or equitable Rights afforded by the Loan Documents, the Governmental Requirements of the State of New York, or any other applicable jurisdiction.

 

11.2 Waivers. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Company waives presentment and demand for payment, protest, notice of intention to accelerate, notice of acceleration, and notice of protest and nonpayment, and agrees that its liability with respect to all or any part of the Obligation is not affected by any renewal or extension in the time of payment of all or any part of the Obligation, by any indulgence, or by any release or change in any security for the payment of all or any part of the Obligation.

 

11.3 Performance by Administrative Agent. If any covenant, duty, or agreement of Borrower is not performed in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents, Administrative Agent may, while a Default exists, at its option, perform, or attempt to perform that covenant, duty, or agreement on behalf of Borrower (and any amount expended by Administrative Agent in its performance or attempted performance is payable by Borrower to Administrative Agent on demand, becomes part of the Obligation, and bears interest at the Default Rate from the date of Administrative Agent’s expenditure until paid). However, neither Administrative Agent nor any Lender assumes or shall have, except by its express written consent, any liability or responsibility for the performance of any covenant, duty, or agreement of Borrower.

 

11.4 Not in Control. None of the covenants or other provisions contained in any Loan Document shall, or shall be deemed to, give Administrative Agent or Lenders the Right to exercise control over the assets (including real property), affairs, or management of any Company.

 

11.5 Course of Dealing. The acceptance by Administrative Agent or any Lender of any partial payment on the Obligation shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any Default then existing. No waiver by any Credit Party of any Default shall be deemed to be a waiver of any other then-existing or subsequent Default. No delay or omission by any Credit Party in exercising any Right under the Loan

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    49     


Documents will impair that Right or be construed as a waiver thereof or any acquiescence therein, nor will any single or partial exercise of any Right preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other Right under the Loan Documents or otherwise.

 

11.6 Cumulative Rights. All Rights available to the Credit Parties under the Loan Documents are cumulative of and in addition to all other Rights granted to the Credit Parties at law or in equity, whether or not the Obligation is due and payable and whether or not Administrative Agent or Lenders have instituted any suit for collection, foreclosure, or other action in connection with the Loan Documents.

 

11.7 Application of Proceeds. Any and all proceeds ever received by any Credit Party from the exercise of any Rights pertaining to the Obligation shall be applied to the Obligation according to Section 3.11.

 

11.8 Certain Proceedings. Borrower shall promptly execute and deliver, or cause the execution and delivery of, all applications, certificates, instruments, and all other documents and papers Administrative Agent reasonably requests in connection with the obtaining of any consent, approval, registration, qualification, permit, license, or authorization of any Governmental Authority or other Person necessary or appropriate for the effective exercise of any Rights under the Loan Documents. Because Borrower agrees that Administrative Agent’s and Lenders’ remedies at law for failure of Borrower to comply with the provisions of this paragraph would be inadequate and that failure would not be adequately compensable in damages, Borrower agrees that the covenants of this Section 11.8 may be specifically enforced.

 

SECTION 12

 

AGENTS AND LENDERS

 

12.1 Appointment, Powers and Immunities. Each Lender hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes Administrative Agent to act as its agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents with such powers as are specifically delegated to Administrative Agent by the terms of this Agreement and of the other Loan Documents, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Administrative Agent (which term as used in this sentence and in Section 12.5 and the first sentence of Section 12.6 shall include reference to its Affiliates and its own and its Affiliates’ officers, directors, employees, and agents):

 

(a) shall have no duties or responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this Agreement and in the other Loan Documents, and shall not by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document be a trustee for any Lender;

 

(b) shall not be responsible to Lenders for any recitals, statements, representations, or warranties contained in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document, or in any certificate or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by any of them under, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability, or sufficiency of this Agreement, any Note, or any other Loan Document or any other document referred to or provided for herein or therein, or for any failure by Borrower or any other Person to perform any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder;

 

(c) shall not be responsible to Lenders for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    50     


hereunder or under any other Loan Document or under any other document or instrument referred to or provided for herein or therein or in connection herewith or therewith, except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct;

 

(d) shall not, except to the extent expressly instructed by Required Lenders, be required to initiate or conduct any litigation or collection proceedings hereunder or under any other Loan Document; and

 

(e) shall not be required to take any action which is contrary to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or Governmental Requirement.

 

Administrative Agent may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact and shall not be responsible to Lenders for the negligence or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it in good faith. Administrative Agent may deem and treat the payee of a Note as the holder thereof for all purposes hereof unless and until a notice of the assignment or transfer thereof shall have been filed with Administrative Agent, any such assignment or transfer to be subject to the provisions of Section 13.11. Except to the extent expressly provided in Sections 12.8 and 12.10, the provisions of this Section 12 are solely for the benefit of Administrative Agent and the Lenders, and Borrower shall not have any rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions hereof and Lenders may modify or waive such provisions of this Section 12 in their sole and absolute discretion.

 

12.2 Reliance by Administrative Agent. Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any certification, notice, document, or other communication (including any thereof by telephone, telecopy, telegram, or cable) reasonably believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by or on behalf of the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants, and other experts selected by Administrative Agent. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement or any other Loan Document, Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder or thereunder in accordance with instructions given by Required Lenders, and such instructions of Required Lenders and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all Lenders.

 

12.3 Defaults.

 

(a) Administrative Agent shall give Lenders notice of any material Default or Potential Default of which Administrative Agent has knowledge or notice. Except with respect to (i) the nonpayment of principal, interest, or any fees that are due and payable under the Loan Documents, (ii) any Default or Potential Default with respect to which Administrative Agent has actually sent written notice of to Borrower, and (iii) any Default or Potential Default with respect to which Administrative Agent has entered into discussions with Borrower, Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of a Default or Potential Default unless Administrative Agent has received notice from a Lender or Borrower specifying such Default or Potential Default and stating that such notice is a “Notice of Default.” In the event that Administrative Agent receives such a notice from Borrower or a Lender in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence with respect to the occurrence of a material Default or Potential Default, Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to Lenders. Within ten (10) days of delivery of such notice of Default or Potential Default from Administrative Agent to Lenders (or such shorter period of time as Administrative Agent determines is necessary), Administrative Agent and Lenders shall consult with each other to determine a proposed course of action. Administrative Agent shall (subject to Section 12.7) take such action with respect to such Default or Potential Default as shall be directed by Required Lenders, provided that, (i) unless and

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    51     


until Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, including decisions (A) to make protective advances that Administrative Agent determines are necessary to protect or maintain any collateral and (B) to foreclose on any collateral or exercise any other remedy, with respect to such Default or Potential Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interest of Lenders except to the extent that this Agreement expressly requires that such action be taken, or not be taken, only with the consent or upon the authorization of all Lenders, and (ii) no actions approved by Required Lenders shall violate the Loan Documents or applicable Governmental Requirement. Administrative Agent shall advise Lenders of all actions which Administrative Agent takes in accordance with the provisions of this Section 12.3 and shall continue to consult with Lenders with respect to all of such actions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Required Lenders shall at any time direct that a different or additional remedial action be taken from that already undertaken by Administrative Agent, such different or additional remedial action shall be taken in lieu of or in addition to, the prosecution of such action taken by Administrative Agent; provided that all actions already taken by Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 12.3 shall be valid and binding on each Lender. All money (other than money subject to the provisions of Section 12.3(f)) received from any enforcement actions, shall be applied, first, to the payment or reimbursement of Administrative Agent and Lenders for expenses incurred in accordance with the provisions of Sections 12.3(b), (c), and (d) and 12.5 and to the payment of the administration fee to the extent not paid by Borrower pursuant to Section 3.19, second, to the payment or reimbursement of Lenders for any advances made pursuant to Section 12.3(b); and third, to Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share, unless an Unpaid Amount is owed pursuant to Section 12.11, in which event such Unpaid Amount shall be deducted from the portion of such proceeds of the Defaulting Lender and be applied to payment of such Unpaid Amount to the Special Advance Lender.

 

(b) All losses with respect to interest (including interest at the Default Rate) and other sums payable pursuant to the Notes or incurred in connection with the Term Loans shall be borne by Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share. All losses incurred in connection with the Term Loans, the enforcement thereof, or the realization of the security therefor, shall be borne by Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share, and Lenders shall promptly, upon request, remit to Administrative Agent their respective Pro Rata Share of (i) any expenses incurred by Administrative Agent in connection with any Default or Potential Default to the extent any expenses have not been paid by Borrower, (ii) any advances made to pay taxes or insurance or otherwise to preserve any Liens or to preserve and protect the collateral, whether or not the amount is necessary, (iii) any other expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement of the other Loan Documents, and (iv) any expenses incurred in connection with the consummation of the Term Loans not paid or provided for by Borrower. To the extent any such advances are recovered in connection with the enforcement of the other Loan Documents, each Lender shall be paid its Pro Rata Share of such recovery after deduction of the expenses of Administrative Agent and Lenders.

 

(c) In the event that, at the direction of Required Lenders or otherwise as provided in Section 12.3(a), any action(s) is brought to collect on the Notes or any other Loan Document, such action shall (to the extent permitted under applicable law and the decisions of the court in which such action is brought) be an action brought by Administrative Agent and Lenders, collectively, to collect on all or a portion of the Notes or enforce other Loan Document, and counsel selected by Administrative Agent shall prosecute any such action on behalf of Administrative Agent and Lenders, and Administrative Agent and Lenders shall consult and cooperate with each other in the prosecution thereof. All decisions concerning the appointment of a receiver while such action and the collection of any judgment entered in such action are pending, the conduct of such receivership, the conduct of such action, the collection of any judgment entered in such action, and the settlement of such action shall be made by Required Lenders, subject,

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    52     


however, to the provisions of subsection (a) above. The costs and expenses of any such action shall be borne by the Lenders in accordance with each of their respective Pro Rata Share.

 

12.4 Rights as a Lender. With respect to its Term Loan, Eurohypo (and any successor acting as Administrative Agent) in its capacity as a Lender hereunder shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not acting as Administrative Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless the context otherwise indicates, include Administrative Agent in its individual capacity. Subject to the provisions of Section 3.12, Eurohypo (and any successor acting as Administrative Agent) and its affiliates may (without having to account therefor to any other Lender) accept deposits from, lend money to, make investments in, and generally engage in any kind of banking, investment banking, trust, or other business with Borrower (and any of its affiliates) as if it were not acting as Administrative Agent, and Eurohypo (and any such successor) and any of its affiliates may accept fees and other consideration from Borrower for services in connection with this Agreement or otherwise without having to account for the same to Lenders.

 

12.5 Indemnification. In performing its duties under the Loan Documents, Administrative Agent will exercise the same degree of care as it normally exercises in connection with loans of a similar type and size in which no syndication or participations are involved. Each Lender agrees to indemnify Administrative Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by Borrower, but without limiting the obligations of Borrower under Section 12.3) ratably in accordance with the aggregate principal amount of the Term Loans held by Lenders, for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses, or disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever that may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against Administrative Agent in its capacity as Administrative Agent (including by any Lender) arising out of or by reason of any investigation in or in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any other documents contemplated by or referred to herein or therein (including the costs and expenses that Borrower is obligated to pay under Section 7.7, but excluding, unless a Default has occurred and is continuing, normal administrative costs and expenses incident to the performance of its agency duties hereunder) or the enforcement of any of the terms hereof or thereof, provided that no Lender shall be liable for any of the foregoing to the extent they arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Administrative Agent or a breach of the standard of care set forth in the first sentence of this Section 12.5.

 

12.6 Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders. Each Lender agrees that it has, independently and without reliance on the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis of each Company and its decision to enter into this Agreement and that it will, independently and without reliance upon 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 analysis and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document. Subject to the provisions of Section 12.5, Administrative Agent shall not be required to keep itself informed as to the performance or observance by any Company of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any other document referred to or provided for herein or therein or to inspect the assets or books of any Company. Except for notices, reports, and other documents and information expressly required to be furnished to Lenders by Administrative Agent hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the affairs, financial condition, or business of any Company (or any of their Affiliates) that may come into the possession of Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates.

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    53     


12.7 Failure to Act. Except for action expressly required of Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully justified in failing or refusing to act hereunder and thereunder unless it shall receive further assurances to its satisfaction from Lenders of their indemnification obligations under Section 12.5 against any and all liability and expense that may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action.

 

12.8 Resignation or Removal of Administrative Agent. Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving prior notice of at least thirty (30) days thereof to Lenders and Borrower and Administrative Agent may be removed at any time with cause by Required Lenders. Upon any such resignation or removal, Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent that shall be an institutional lender that meets the qualifications of an Eligible Assignee, which Borrower, as long as no Default exists, shall then have the right to approve or disapprove in its reasonable discretion if such successor Administrative Agent is not a Lender. If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Administrative Agent’s giving of notice of resignation of the retiring Administrative Agent or Required Lenders’ removal of Administrative Agent, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, that shall meet the requirements of an Eligible Assignee. If no successor Administrative Agent has been appointed by Required Lenders or Administrative Agent, as provided above, then the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless become effective forty-five (45) days after the retiring Administrative Agent’s notice of resignation and Required Lenders shall thereafter perform all of the duties of Administrative Agent hereunder and/or under any other Loan Documents until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent, as provided in this Section 12.8. 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 retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. The fees payable by Borrower to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between Borrower and such successor. After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 12 shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Administrative Agent.

 

12.9 Consents under Loan Documents. Except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents, including Section 13.9, Administrative Agent may as expressly provided in the Loan Documents, or otherwise with the prior consent of Required Lenders (but not otherwise), (a) grant any consent or approval required of it or (b) consent to any modification or waiver under any of the Loan Documents. If Administrative Agent solicits any consents or approvals from Lenders under any of the Loan Documents, each Lender shall, within ten (10) Business Days of receiving such request, give Administrative Agent written notice that it will grant such consent or approval or that it will not grant such consent or approval; provided that, if any Lender does not respond within such ten (10) Business Days, such Lender shall be deemed to have authorized Administrative Agent to vote such Lender’s interest with respect to the matter which was the subject of Administrative Agent’s solicitation as Administrative Agent elects. Any such solicitation by Administrative Agent for a consent or approval shall be in writing and shall include a description of the matter or thing as to which such consent or approval is requested and shall include Administrative Agent’s recommended course of action or determination in respect thereof.

 

12.10 Authorization. Administrative Agent is hereby authorized by Lenders to execute, deliver, and perform in accordance with its terms each of the Loan Documents to which Administrative

Agent is or is intended to be a party and each Lender agrees to be bound by all of the agreements of Administrative Agent contained in such Loan Documents. Borrower shall be entitled to rely on all written agreements, approvals, and consents received from Administrative Agent as being that also of Lenders, without obtaining separate acknowledgement or proof of authorization of same.

 

12.11 Defaulting Lenders. If any Lender (a “Defaulting Lender”) shall for any reason fail to (i) make any respective Term Loan required pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or (ii) pay its Pro Rata Share of an advance or disbursement to protect any Lien, any of the other Lenders may, but shall not be obligated to, make all or a portion of the Defaulting Lender’s Term Loan or Pro Rata Share of such advance, provided that such Lender gives Defaulting Lender and Administrative Agent prior notice of its intention to do so. The right to make such advances in respect of Defaulting Lender shall be exercisable first by the Lender holding the greatest Pro Rata Share of the Term Loans and thereafter to each Lender in descending order of their respective Pro Rata Shares of the Term Loans or in such other manner as Required Lenders (excluding Defaulting Lender) may agree on. Whichever Lenders make all or any portion of the Defaulting Lender’s proportionate share of the applicable Term Loan or advance in accordance with the foregoing terms and conditions shall be referred to as a “Special Advance Lender.”

 

(a) In any case where a Lender becomes a Special Advance Lender (i) the Special Advance Lender shall be deemed to have purchased, and the Defaulting Lender shall be deemed to have sold, a senior participation in the Defaulting Lender’s respective Term Loan to the extent of the amount so advanced or disbursed (the “Advanced Amount”) bearing interest (including interest at the Default Rate, if applicable) and (ii) the Defaulting Lender shall have no voting rights under this Agreement or any other Loan Documents so long as it is a Defaulting Lender. It is expressly understood and agreed that each of the respective obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including advancing Term Loans, losses incurred in connection with the Term Loans, including costs and expenses of enforcement, and advances to preserve any Lien, shall be without regard to any adjustment in the Pro Rata Shares occasioned by the acts of a Defaulting Lender. The Special Advance Lender shall be entitled to an amount (the “Unpaid Amount”) equal to the applicable Advanced Amount, plus any unpaid interest due and owing with respect thereto, less any repayments thereof made by the Defaulting Lender immediately upon demand. The Defaulting Lender shall have the right to repurchase the senior participation in its Term Loan from the Special Advance Lender at any time by the payment of the Unpaid Amount.

 

(b) A Special Advance Lender shall (i) give notice to the Defaulting Lender, Administrative Agent, and each other Lender (provided that failure to deliver said notice to any party other than the Defaulting Lender shall not constitute a default under this Agreement) of the Advance Amount and the percentage of the Special Advance Lender’s senior participation in the Defaulting Lender’s Term Loan and (ii) in the event of the repayment of any of the Unpaid Amount by the Defaulting Lender, give notice to the Defaulting Lender and Administrative Agent of the fact that the Unpaid Amount has been repaid (in whole or in part), the amount of such repayment and, if applicable, the revised percentage of the Special Advance Lender’s senior participation. Provided that Administrative Agent has received notice of such participation, Administrative Agent shall have the same obligations to distribute interest, principal, and other sums received by Administrative Agent with respect to a Special Advance Lender’s senior participation as Administrative Agent has with respect to the distribution of interest, principal, and other sums under this Agreement; and at the time of making any distributions to Lenders, shall make payments to the Special Advance Lender with respect to a Special Advance Lender’s senior participation in the Defaulting Lender’s Term Loan out of the Defaulting Lender’s share of any such distributions.

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    55     


(c) A Defaulting Lender shall immediately pay to a Special Advance Lender all sums of any kind paid to or received by the Defaulting Lender from Borrower, whether pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, or in connection with the realization of the security therefor, until the Unpaid Amount is fully repaid. Notwithstanding the fact that the Defaulting Lender may temporarily hold such sums, the Defaulting Lender shall be deemed to hold same as a trustee for the benefit of the Special Advance Lender, it being the express intention of Lenders that the Special Advance Lender shall have an ownership interest in such sums to the extent of the Unpaid Amount.

 

(d) Each Defaulting Lender shall indemnify, defend, and hold Administrative Agent and each other Lender harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and interest at the Default Rate) which they may sustain or incur by reason of the Defaulting Lender’s failure or refusal to abide by its obligations under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, except to the extent a Defaulting Lender became a Defaulting Lender due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Administrative Agent and/or any Lender. Administrative Agent shall, after payment of any amounts due to any Special Advance Lender pursuant to the terms of subsection (c) above, set-off against any payments due to such Defaulting Lender for the claims of Administrative Agent and the other Lenders pursuant to this Indemnity.

 

12.12 Other Agents.

 

(a) Syndication Agent, in such capacity, shall have no rights, duties, or obligations hereunder, except as specifically provided in this Agreement. Syndication Agent (a) may voluntarily resign by notice to Administrative Agent, Lenders, and Borrower, and (b) shall resign upon the request of the Required Lenders for cause. Upon the resignation of Syndication Agent, the Required Lenders may elect to designate a successor Syndication Agent (which, if no Default or Potential Default exists, is subject to Borrower’s approval that may not be unreasonably withheld), which shall meet the requirements of an Eligible Assignee.

 

(b) No Lender or other Persons identified on the facing page or signature pages of this Agreement as a “syndication agent,” “documentation agent,” “co-documentation agent,” “book manager,” “lead manager,” “arranger,” “book runner,” or “lead arranger” shall have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility, or duty under this Agreement other than, in the case of such Lenders, those applicable to all Lenders as such. Without limiting the foregoing, no Lenders or other Persons so identified shall have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Lender. Each Lender acknowledges that it has not relied, and will not rely, on any Lenders or other Persons so identified in deciding to enter into this Agreement or in taking or not taking action hereunder.

 

SECTION 13

 

MISCELLANEOUS

 

13.1 Headings. The headings, captions and arrangements used in any of the Loan Documents are, unless specified otherwise, for convenience only and shall not be deemed to limit, amplify, or modify the terms of the Loan Documents, nor affect the meaning thereof.

 

13.2 Nonbusiness Days; Time. Any payment or action that is due under any Loan Document on a non-Business Day may be delayed until the next-succeeding Business Day (but interest shall continue to accrue on any applicable payment until payment is in fact made) unless the payment concerns a Eurodollar Borrowing, in which case if the next-succeeding Business Day is in the next calendar month, then such payment shall be made on the next-preceding Business Day.

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    56     


13.3 Communications. Unless otherwise specifically provided, whenever any Loan Document requires or permits any consent, approval, notice, request, demand, or other communication from one party to another, communication must be in writing (which may be by telex or telecopy) to be effective and shall be deemed to have been given (a) if by telex, when transmitted to the appropriate telex number and the appropriate answerback is received, (b) if by telecopy, when transmitted to the appropriate telecopy number (and all communications sent by telecopy must be confirmed promptly thereafter by telephone; but any requirement in this parenthetical shall not affect the date when the telecopy shall be deemed to have been delivered), (c) if by mail, on the fifth (5th) Business Day after it is enclosed in an envelope and properly addressed, stamped, sealed, certified mail, return receipt requested, and deposited in the appropriate official postal service, or (d) if by any other means, when actually delivered. Until changed by notice pursuant to this Agreement, the address (and telecopy number) for each party to a Loan Document is set forth on Schedule 1.

 

13.4 Form and Number of Documents. The form, substance, and number of counterparts of each writing to be furnished under this Agreement must be satisfactory to Administrative Agent and its counsel.

 

13.5 Survival. All covenants, agreements, undertakings, representations, and warranties made in any of the Loan Documents survive all closings under the Loan Documents and, except as otherwise indicated, are not affected by any investigation made by any party.

 

13.6 Governing Law. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN A LOAN DOCUMENT, THE GOVERNMENTAL REQUIREMENTS (OTHER THAN CONFLICT-OF-LAWS PROVISIONS) OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA GOVERN THE RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF THE PARTIES TO THE LOAN DOCUMENTS AND THE VALIDITY, CONSTRUCTION, ENFORCEMENT, AND INTERPRETATION OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS.

 

13.7 Invalid Provisions. Any provision in any Loan Document held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable is fully severable; the appropriate Loan Document shall be construed and enforced as if that provision had never been included; and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the severed provision. Administrative Agent, Lenders, and Borrower agree to negotiate, in good faith, the terms of a replacement provision as similar to the severed provision as may be possible and be legal, valid and enforceable. However, if the provision held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable is a material part of this Agreement, such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision shall be, to the extent permitted by applicable law, replaced by a clause or provision judicially construed and interpreted to be as similar in substance and content to the original terms of such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable clause or provision as the context thereof would reasonably allow, so that such clause or provision would thereafter be legal, valid, and enforceable.

 

13.8 Venue; Service of Process; Jury Trial. EACH PARTY TO ANY LOAN DOCUMENT, IN EACH CASE FOR ITSELF, ITS SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS (AND IN THE CASE OF BORROWER, FOR EACH OF ITS CONSOLIDATED AFFILIATES), (a) IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE NONEXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, (b) IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY LITIGATION ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE LOAN DOCUMENTS AND THE OBLIGATION BROUGHT IN DISTRICT COURTS OF NEW YORK COUNTY, NEW YORK, OR IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE

SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, (c) IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY CLAIMS THAT ANY LITIGATION BROUGHT IN ANY OF THE AFOREMENTIONED COURTS HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM, (d) IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE SERVICE OF PROCESS OUT OF ANY OF THOSE COURTS IN ANY LITIGATION BY THE MAILING OF COPIES THEREOF BY CERTIFIED MAIL, RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED, POSTAGE PREPAID, BY HAND-DELIVERY, OR BY DELIVERY BY A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED COURIER SERVICE, AND SERVICE SHALL BE DEEMED COMPLETE UPON DELIVERY OF THE LEGAL PROCESS AT ITS ADDRESS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, (e) IRREVOCABLY AGREES THAT ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING AGAINST ANY PARTY TO ANY LOAN DOCUMENT ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR THE OBLIGATION MAY BE BROUGHT IN ONE OF THE AFOREMENTIONED COURTS, AND (f) IRREVOCABLY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ITS RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF ANY LOAN DOCUMENT. The scope of each of the foregoing waivers is intended to be all-encompassing of any and all disputes that may be filed in any court and that relate to the subject matter of this transaction, including contract claims, tort claims, breach of duty claims, and all other common law and statutory claims. Borrower (for itself and on behalf of each of its Consolidated Affiliates) acknowledges that these waivers are a material inducement to Administrative Agent’s and each Lender’s agreement to enter into a business relationship, that Administrative Agent and each Lender has already relied on these waivers in entering into this Agreement, and that Administrative Agent and each Lender will continue to rely on each of these waivers in related future dealings. Borrower (for itself and on behalf of each of its Consolidated Affiliates) further warrants and represents that it has reviewed these waivers with its legal counsel, and that it knowingly and voluntarily agrees to each waiver following consultation with legal counsel. THE WAIVERS IN THIS SECTION 13.8 ARE IRREVOCABLE, MEANING THAT THEY MAY NOT BE MODIFIED EITHER ORALLY OR IN WRITING, AND THESE WAIVERS SHALL APPLY TO ANY SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENTS, SUPPLEMENTS, OR REPLACEMENTS TO OR OF THIS OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT. In the event of Litigation, this Agreement may be filed as a written consent to a trial by the court.

 

13.9 Amendments, Consents, Conflicts, and Waivers.

 

(a) Required Lenders. Unless otherwise specifically provided, the provisions of this Agreement may be amended, modified, or waived, only by an instrument in writing executed by Borrower and the Required Lenders and supplemented only by documents delivered or to be delivered in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement.

 

(b) All Lenders. Except as specifically otherwise provided in this Section 13.9, any amendment to or consent or waiver under this Agreement or any Loan Document that purports to (x) increase the amount or amend the definition of Permitted Redemptions must be by an instrument in writing executed by Borrower and the Majority Lenders, and (y) accomplish any of the following must be by an instrument in writing executed by Borrower and executed (or approved, as the case may be) by each Lender (other than any Defaulting Lender): (i) extends the scheduled Termination Date; (ii) extends the due date or decreases the amount of any scheduled payment or amortization of the Obligation beyond the date specified in the Loan Documents; (iii) decreases any rate or amount of interest, fees, principal, or other sums payable to Administrative Agent or Lenders under this Agreement (except such reductions as are contemplated by this Agreement); (iv) changes the definition of “Adjusted Property EBITDA,” “Approved Costs,” “EBITDA Adjustments,” “EBITDA Value,” “Majority Lenders,” “Occupancy Rate,” “Required Lenders,” “Pro Rata Share,” or “Unencumbered Property;” (v) increases any one or more Lenders’ Term Loan; (vi) waives compliance with, amends, or fully or partially releases the PPT

(d) Conflicts. Any conflict or ambiguity between the terms and provisions of this Agreement and terms and provisions in any other Loan Document is controlled by the terms and provisions of this Agreement.

 

(e) Course of Dealing. No course of dealing or any failure or delay by any Credit Party or any of its Representatives with respect to exercising any Right of any Credit Party under this Agreement operates as a waiver thereof. A waiver must be in writing and signed by the Required Lenders or Lenders, as appropriate, to be effective, and a waiver will be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it is given.

 

13.10 Multiple Counterparts. Any Loan Document may be executed in a number of identical counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original for all purposes and all of which constitute, collectively, one agreement; but, in making proof of thereof, it shall not be necessary to produce or account for more than one counterpart. Each Lender need not execute the same counterpart of this Agreement so long as identical counterparts are executed by Borrower, each Lender, and Administrative Agent. This Agreement shall become effective when counterparts of this Agreement have been executed and delivered to Administrative Agent by each Lender, Administrative Agent, and Borrower, or, in the case only of Lenders, when Administrative Agent has received telecopied, telexed, or other evidence satisfactory to it that each Lender has executed and is delivering to Administrative Agent a counterpart of this Agreement.

 

13.11 Successors and Assigns; Participations.

 

(a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that Borrower may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender and no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder except (i) to an Eligible Assignee, (ii) by way of participation in accordance with the provisions of subsection (d) of this Section 13.11, (and any other attempted assignment or transfer by any party hereto shall be null and void).

(b) Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or a portion of its Rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Term Loan and Note at the time owing to it); provided that (i) except for an assignment by such Lender to an Affiliate of such Lender, such Lender shall have received the prior consent of Administrative Agent and, so long as no Potential Default or Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrower (each such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); (ii) except in the case of an assignment of the entire remaining

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    59     


amount of the assigning Lender’s Term Loan and Note at the time owing to it or in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund with respect to a Lender, the aggregate amount of the Term Loan (which for this purpose includes Principal Debt outstanding thereunder) subject to each such assignment, determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to Administrative Agent or, if “Trade Date” is specified in the Assignment and Assumption, as of the Trade Date, shall not be less than $5,000,000; (iii) each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s Rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to the Notes or the Term Loan assigned; (iv) the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to Administrative Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500; and (v) except in the case of an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Term Loan, the aggregate amount of the Term Loan of such assigning Lender, after giving effect to such assignment, is at least $5,000,000. Subject to acceptance and recording thereof by Administrative Agent pursuant to subsection (c) of this Section 13.11, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption, the Eligible Assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s Rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.15(c) and (d), 3.17, 7.7 and 7.12 with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment). Upon request, Borrower (at its expense) shall execute and deliver a Note to the assignee Lender. Administrative Agent agrees to provide Borrower with copies of all Assignment and Assumption Agreements so long as no Default exists. Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this subsection 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 subsection (d) of this Section 13.11.

 

(c) Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of Borrower, shall maintain at Administrative Agent’s office 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 Term Loan of, and principal amounts of the Notes 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 Borrower, Administrative Agent, and 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 Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

 

(d) Any Lender may at any time, sell participations to any Person (other than a natural person or Borrower or any of Borrower’s Affiliates or Subsidiaries ) (each, a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Term Loan and/or the Notes; provided that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) Borrower, Administrative Agent, and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, (iv) the amount of each such participation shall not be less than $5,000,000; and (v) the aggregate amount of the Term Loan of such Lender selling such participation, after giving effect to such assignment, is at least $5,000,000. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to

 

Amended and Restated Credit Agreement    60     


enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, waiver or other modification described in Section 13.9(b) that directly affects such Participant. Subject to subsection (e) of this Section 13.11, Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.15(c) and (d) and 3.17 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to subsection (b) of this Section 13.11. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also agrees to be subject to Section 3.12 as though it were a Lender.

 

(e) A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 3.15(c) and (d) than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant. A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 3.15(d) unless Borrower is notified of the participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the benefit of Borrower, to comply with Section 3.18 as though it were a Lender.

 

(f) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its Rights under this Agreement (including under its Note) to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

 

(g) As used herein, the following terms have the following meanings:

13.12 Discharge Only Upon Payment in Full; Reinstatement in Certain Circumstances. Borrower’s obligations under the Loan Documents remain in full force and effect until the Obligation is paid in full (except for provisions under the Loan Documents which by their terms expressly survive payment of the Obligation and termination of the Loan Documents). If at any time any payment of the principal of or interest on any Note or any other amount payable by Borrower or any other obligor on the Obligation under any Loan Document is rescinded or must be restored or returned upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, or reorganization of Borrower or otherwise, then the obligations of Borrower under the Loan Documents with respect to that payment shall be reinstated as though the payment had been due but not made at that time.

 

13.13 Amendment and Restatement. The parties hereto agree that, on the Closing Date, after all conditions precedent set forth in Section 5.1 have been satisfied or waived: (a) the Obligation (as defined herein) represents, among other things, the amendment, extension, consolidation, and modification of the “Obligation” (as defined in the Original Agreement); (b) this Agreement is intended to, and does hereby, restate, renew, extend, amend, modify, supersede, and replace the Original Agreement; (c) the Notes executed pursuant to this Agreement amend, renew, extend, modify, replace, substitute for and supersede in their entirety (but do not extinguish, the Indebtedness arising under) the promissory notes issued pursuant to the Original Agreement; and (d) the entering into and performance of their respective obligations under this Agreement and the transactions evidenced hereby do not constitute a novation

 

13.14 Entirety. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER WRITTEN LOAN DOCUMENTS (EACH AS AMENDED IN WRITING FROM TIME TO TIME) EXECUTED BY BORROWER AND/OR ANY CREDIT PARTY REPRESENT THE FINAL AGREEMENT AMONG BORROWER AND THE CREDIT PARTIES AND MAY NOT BE CONTRADICTED BY EVIDENCE OF PRIOR, CONTEMPORANEOUS OR SUBSEQUENT ORAL AGREEMENTS BY THE PARTIES. THERE ARE NO UNWRITTEN ORAL AGREEMENTS AMONG THE PARTIES.
